    Could end up selling Hwang this week for Son....rest of midfield is Foden, Saka, Palmer and Barkley on the bench.

      Try not to let him know before Tribal Council. If he gets a whiff of what you’re up to he’ll start scrambling.

        Or try a shot in the dark

      Do you have immunity?

    Anyone have anything new on Adebayo?

    Could've sworn Watkins(c) was on for a bonus point when I went to bed Saturday... Could cost me my fixture!

      Think a big chance missed deduction

    Assuming Porro is fit, you BB this next week?

    Areola, Cash, Porro, Neto

    I just want to get BB out of the way!

    1. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I’m looking at 28 BB with the double.. Looks a bit touch and go for my liking..

      1. Radulfo28773
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Yep, debating between the two.
        Thanks for the answer

    I’m going for Salah now, got great bench cover for him if he doesn’t make forest..

      you wouldnt do something really insensible and daft and just wait for a presser? i feel like if he had both legs in protective boots and was on crutches people on here would still buy him

    2. Tonyawesome69

      Baffling benching 13.0m player when you can target short term options

      nfo (A), Prague (A), MCI, Prague (H), likely BGW29

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        This.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Why with doubt over fitness, City game, likely blank 29- he’s an easy avoid until we see him back a couple of games and get in 30/31.

    4. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I will too (on WC) if he gets some mins on Wed. If not I'll buy him for the City game - no fixture puts me off Mo. FH29 so blank no issue either

      1. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Honestly think of he was going to be fit enough on Weds he'd have been on the bench yesterday. It's not a very long period of time between yday and weds. Wait and see though

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I mean, I'm flexible on it. Obviously would have preferred his return to coincide with my WC but I have to book a transfer anyway with WC27/FH29 so if not I'll just keep Foden v MUN then sell for Salah the next week

  6. boc610

    pocch saying his players were "tired" after nearly a weeks rest between each of the last 3 games lol...

    1. Wild Card this!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That was just honest mistake, he intended to release that statement after Wednesday FA Cup game 😉

    2. el polako
      • 6 Years

      They clearly need to invest in the squad.
      Another 500m should do it.

      1. Sgt. Schultz

        Gary Neville be rubbing his hands for his next billion dollar comment

  7. FCSB
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Best option here (assuming Porro is fit):

    1. Play Ake (MUN)
    2. Estupinan >> Senesi (bur), and play him over Ake (will likely get him for GW28 anyway)

    Thanks

    1. Solly The Seagull

      1

  8. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Any interesting def options with DGW or BGW in mind? Want to sell Estu, may just go with Senesi.

    Also, would you bench Hwang over Bailey?

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years

      You know after hours of stats whoever you choose will be wrong 🙂

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years

        Haha totally right!

    2. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Going for Bournemouth keeper Neto myself, only have Areola as my playing keeper which is not good

    3. Boz
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Could punt on Cash. Him and Bailey looked electric down the right against forest

  9. Solly The Seagull
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Bench one from this frontline

    Saka Bowen Gross Palmer Foden
    Haaland Solanke Watkins

    1. boc610
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      bowen , see how west ham are tonight but they look really poor right now

    2. Boz
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Bowen

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Don’t know until we see game tonight- if Pacqueta back as seems likely Bowen may come back into our thinking

  10. Mother Farke
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Bowen based on form.

    • Wild Card this!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Proper benching headache:

      Haaland (C), Darwin (read Solanke), Watkins
      Saka, Gross, Foden, D. Luiz
      Gabriel, White, VVD

      Bench: Hwang, Porro, C. Richards

      Maybe its Hwang turn to score?

      1. g40steve
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Gross

      2. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Bascially a coinflip (three side coin) between Gross, Hwang and D. Luiz imho.

      3. Boz
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Luiz, he doesn't score away from home

      4. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Don't bench attackers playing Newcastle right now

      5. Wild Card this!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Indeed, might be a 3 side coin flip but for the time I'm 50/50 Hwang vs Luiz.
        Can't bech Gross with last 3 GW's.
        True, Luiz doesn't score at home much but I also lost a bit of faith in our "must have" Hwang after last weekend 🙂

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I would maybe also bench Hwang (in fact I'm benching him, but I don't have such a benching headache as you), but tbh don't think there is much in it.

    • Bishopool
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Hmm, I have Mateta and in dgw he is playing against Luton, so potentially solid differential. I have also Haaland (away Liverpool) and Watkins (home Spurs). What would you do to bring in Solanke?

      a) Haaland -> Solanke
      b) Watkins -> Solanke
      c) Mateta -> Solanke

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        C easily

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        C

      3. Boz
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        C if you want Solanke. The other two are fixture proof

    • Boz
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Bench one

      Saka Foden KDB Palmer Bailey

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Bailey

        1. Boz
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Cheers. I was think Bailey or Palmer. Luton away might not be the easiest fixture but SHU won there. Think I need to see how the Chelsea midweek game goes

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Maybe Palmer IF Chelsea play another 120 mins on Wednesday

      3. SpaceCadet

        Bailey

      I was on wildcard last week. Had decided on Van Hecke, Senesi and Gabriel in defence for budget and fixtures. Then had a pool of six for the remaining two spots: Kilman, Ait Nouri, Maguire, Bradley, Branthwaite and Kiwior. All led by financial savings to spend more up front. Anyway, Opted for Kilman and Maguire, benching the latter. I still think long term these aren't bad decisions but it's painful to see three attacking returns disappear and no gains in any mini-leagues.

      Afternoon all,

      1FT £4.1 ITB

      Assuming Toney to Solanke is the easy move? Also looking to move on Estu or Guehi. Saliba the best option for the next 4 weeks?

      Dubruv (Turner)
      Gabriel Estu Ake (Porro Guehi)
      Saka Richy Foden Palmer (Neto)

      Cheers.

      KDB is going to be massive differential against ManU. I really do think that Pep plays him in important derby and maybe even up front.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Still the 4th highest ownership amongst midfielders so not sure will be massive differential

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Wwyd here? 2FT, 0.3m ITB.

      A) Darwin to Solanke, roll FT
      B) A + another move (replace KDB / Estupiñán?)
      C) something else

      Areola (Dubravka)
      Saliba Porro* Gabriel (Branthwaite Estupiñán)
      KDB Foden Saka Palmer (Garnacho)
      Haaland Watkins Darwin*

      1. Cojones of Destiny
        • 6 Years

        A, B if any indication KDB is benched which I personally dont think will happen looked very good when came on

      Been hovering around the 200k mark for weeks now. Really need to start pushing. Getting very frustrated with Trippier. Is there anything more urgent than Trippier out?

      Areola Turner
      Trippier Gabriel Maguire Porro Lascelles

      1. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS

        Get rid asap. Porro unlikely to be fit, Maguire at Etihad & double NEW defence is a big problem

      Morning

      Just had a quick question regarding the Gameweek History section on the FPL app.

      What do the random £ amounts on the right hand side of each GW refer to exactly?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Squad value + money itb

      2. CONNERS
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Yes that's how it looks on the web version, but on the app it shows completely random figures like £58 one gw, £120, and so on.

        1. Now I'm Panicking
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Probably a glitch if it is on the app

      3. Now I'm Panicking
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Team value - the fantasy stock market players on here love it

      4. CONNERS
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        OK, thanks both

        1. Now I'm Panicking
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Is there a header on the column these figures are in?

      5. Gazwaz80
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Team value…

    • Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Have folks forgotten about the Hojlund injury last week when making early transfers?

      - no midweek game
      - most transferred player in
      - injured in training and ruled out for 2-3 weeks in the presser

      Why are folks still chasing price rises rather than making transfers with all available information?

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Very fair point. For me though sometimes I take the risk less because of price changes and more because I want to just set my team and forget about it for the rest of the week. I often make better decisions when I'm decisive at the end of the prior GW rather than having taken on too much information later in the week.

      2. CONNERS
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Given how rough this season has been for some, I expect that many are past caring.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Past caring until the transfer backfires and end up complaining on here

          1. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Tbf I don't think I saw complaining about that

      3. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        To be honest, I don't really think early transfers are always bad idea. I'd say it's situation dependant. If a player is a doubt, then it would make perfect sense to wait for more information. But if eg. future moves depend on that 0.1m and the player is 100% healthy, then I don't see a problem really with early transfer. Of course you can have a bad luck with an injury, but in the course of the season the benefit of money ITB should outweigh the potential hits imho, but some numerical approach to check that would be needed!

        KdB > Son is obvious.

        1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Selling a player against a poor ManUtd side riddled with injuries for a player that hasn't had a single shot in his last 120 mins since returning that's up against a side with a new manager bounce that didn't concede a shot on target at the weekend is obvious?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 14 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I didn't say it was the best... I knew I'd have to clarify that...

            I just said it was the obvious move given fixture swings and GW29 cover.

      2. Gooner Kebab
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Who's coming in for KDB?

    • Sgt Frank Drebin
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Really feel like the game would be much better without bonus points based on BPS. My two problems are that:

      1. Only 3 players can get bonus points in a game. Player X could have a great game, end up on 40 bps but still get 0 bonus points, because there were 3 others that played a phenomenal game.

      2. Goals and assists are awarded twice. Mostly players that scored/assisted get bonus points, players who had a great game but failed to get any return rarely get bonus, unless it's a low scoring game.

      In my view bonus points result in FPL having have extra randomness/variance, since the variance from quite a volatile outcome (eg. converting xG) is further increased with awarding these players more points.

      I played fantasy AFCON recently, and think that a bonus point system based on rewarding points independently on individual actions is much better. So, for example extra points awarded for every n duels won, shots on target, key passes etc. Alternatively, I would entirely remove goals, assists and clean sheets from BPS since there are points already awarded for these.

      Imho it would help to award some points to players that had good games but didn't necessarily get any points from goals and assists. It would also reward better having players good at football in your team.

      Thoughts?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Mostly agree.

        But I think they should just award bonus points based on hitting BPS thresholds.

        1 BP for 20+
        2 BP for 30+
        3 BP for 40+

        Something like that.

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Yeah, think that would be also a good idea. Certainly better than what we have now, imho.

      2. Now I'm Panicking
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        There will be moaning no matter what the system is, but I wouldn't be against less/no BAPS being awarded for actions that FPL points are already awarded for (and the same for reductions, especially yellow cards)

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Agree regarding yellow cards.

      Gordon or Hee-Chan to Son for 1 FT? Whoever stays will be 7th/8th choice attacker rotating with Palmer

      Was all set to get Salah but with doubts over his fitness and his immediate blank I'm going to wait

        I'm in the same position and am edging towards Gordon because I'd bench this GW, anyway and Gordon has only one away return all season. Either way I'd just play Palmer every week he gas a string of blue fixtures which is only interrupted by Arsenal in GW29 which will be postponed if they progress in the Cup this week.

      Some FA Cup press conference times (in GMT) that may be of interest today:

      12.30pm - Guardiola
      1pm - Iraola
      1.30pm - Edwards

      Howe has already done his this morning.

        Hopefully we get some good news on Adebayo

      Kai Havertz is one of the outstanding players on recent form based on mins/XGI. Think Arsenal's post-winter break tweak has got him in the box more - even when not the designated striker. Could score very well until the rest of the season.

        agreed. For people who are chasing or looking for a differential to pump their overall rank he could be a great pick

      Does a straight swap for Jota > Salah make most sense?

      I assume he won't play midweek vs Southampton and will be fresh and ready for Forest on Saturday.

      Current team:

      Dubravka (Areola)
      Bradley Gabriel Lamptey
      Palmer KDB Foden Richy Jota
      Haaland Darwin

      Subs: Doughty Adebayo Udogie

        yeah i mean if he's fit and ready to go then looks a nice transfer.

        However, it's wait and see on that. Plus if he is ready to go, Liverpool have had a scare by giving him too many minutes straight away so I wonder if they might be cautious with him for Forest.

        Son could be an option

      Early thoughts with 1ft and 4.9itb. Sensible moves would be to save ft right? Waiting for more injury news on Pau and Porro. Hoping both are fit

      Ederson
      Saliba Pau* Porro*
      Saka Foden Richarlison Douglas
      Haaland Watkins Solanke

      Dubravka; Garnacho, Reguilon, Doughty

      Hold for now 100%.

      However, assuming they are ok then it does look like rolling is a good choice for you. Gives you options for getting in the doubles or with 29 in mind depending on your chip plan.

      2FT's is always a powerful play to have, especially when hits are flying around
