    Max 4.4m def to bring in that plays GW29?

    They are all rubbish so prob doesn't matter, thinking Emerson??
    Got Bur home at least next game.

    Prob that or a non-Doughty defender...

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Maybe a Luton defender (Mengi?) and then at least you have them for the upcoming double as well.

      1. MARVELLUS
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah prob next best option, can't see many CSs for anyone but at least get the appearance pts..... Thanks

    1. fish66
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm very tempted to bench him and play Palmer & Foden over him.

      1. drughi
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        yeah play foden and palmer for sure

  3. fish66
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Who to bench:



    (a) Solanke

    (b) Palmer
    (c) Foden


    1. MARVELLUS
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A

    2. The Iceman
      • 1 Year

      A

  4. The Iceman
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Bottomed!

    Already did Hwang to Son, so would you:

    A) Play both Neto and Solanke (and hope Solanke is fit)
    B) Garnacho > Foden for -4, bench either Neto or Solanke

    1. MARVELLUS
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A for me

  5. Boss Hogg
    • 14 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Anyone think that Garnacho will get anything against City?
    City will surely spank Utd, but they always let at least one in right?

    1. MARVELLUS
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah they may get a goal, but wouldn't hold much hope of a return

    2. Well you know, Triffic
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      City will leak a goal or two

  6. Taegugk Warrior
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Play Ake or colwill..?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ake

  7. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Son up top then, too bad Palace always parks the bus, so no room to run behind...

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      New Palace manager...

  8. Saka Punch
    • 5 Years

    Best replacement for Richi:

    A) Son
    B) KdB
    C) Bowen

    Plan to FH in 29

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      A

  9. Fuddled FC
    • 12 Years

    replacement for Hee Chan? under 5.7m pref

    a) Garnacho
    b) Gallagher
    c) Sarabia
    d) Palmer

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • 13 Years

      1. Fuddled FC
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Not a bad call

  10. Well you know, Triffic
    • 13 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    What do people think of Hwang to Barkley?

    Worried that Solanke won't start so it may be worth having Barkley 1st sub?

    Thanks

    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Injuries have wrecked FPL this year. Need a minus 4 just to get a full team out, and that's with hoping cash and estu start. Wildcard time, I reckon.

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      How can it wreck it if everyone's in the same boat?

      1. Caligula's third favou…
        • 2 Years

        Yeah wrecked was an overreaction. Saw the state of my team and got a massive grump on.

    2. DGW blindness is for Kinnea…
      • 10 Years

      Make use of the 15 slots

      1. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        How does that work if your guy starts and gets injured - you still get his 1 point the bench does not help

    3. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I actually think it's made it more engaging from an FPL stand point. Feel like there's been less of a template and way more variation between everyones teams (or that's the case in my mini leagues at least).

    4. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Injuries add interest to the game. It's the chips that wreck it for me, as you gotta commit to a strategy which narrows your options to obvious picks and puts you at the mercy of injuries on blank gameweeks (like losing Richarlison potentially for BGW29), increasing the effect of their potentially cruel randomness. They hurt the fun of PURE FPL management, including the joys of navigating injuries. IN MY OPINION, potentially

    Will you get Solanke on WC?

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I would if I was on WC yes

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      Yes I will, that double is juicy

  16. Rhodes your boat
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Play 1 for each

    A) Bowen
    B) solanke

    1) estupinan
    2) reguilon

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Think you have to go Solanke ( either fit and starts or doesn’t play at all) and Reguilón ( too much risk of a 1 pointer from Estupinan off the bench)

  17. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Play

    A Doughty
    B Pau ( in squad but not certain to start)

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Can't see Villa keeping a CS if Pau does start.

  19. drughi

  20. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Rather surprised Areola v Dubravka is a dilemma for folks. Straightforward decision imo

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      The bookies odds of a clean sheet are
      29 % Newcastle and 22% West Ham so both poor options and likely to concede!

  21. EWH2020
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Thinking of wildcarding. Didnt really want to but hand may be forced. What would you do?

    Areola, Dubravka
    Saliba, Gabriel, Ake, Lascelles, Kabore
    Foden, Saka, Richy*, Hee Chan*, Garnacho
    Watkins, Haaland, Solanke*

    Posted this a few pages back, will keep reposting for a bit to help others, it generated quite a bit of conversation;
    I'm trying to decide whether FH29 is a must, even if you only have four to seven players. So I'm going to be looking at GW29 in a breakdown by team;

    Burnley:
    - Relegation battle for a reason. 2nd worst defence in the league.
    - Not a single player has scored more than 4 goals this season (Foster*, Amdouni).
    - Most assists (3) are defender O'Shea(!?) and Foster*.
    - Will most likely lose this fixture, wouldn't want defenders from this team, midfielders look awful and no thank you to the forwards.

    Brentford:
    - Only LUT, BUR & SHU have conceded more goals so far this year, granted they're missing key defenders.
    - Awful fixtures until GW33.
    - For GW29 would only consider Flekken & Toney. Wouldn't want the former after GW29.

    Luton:
    - Relegation battle for a reason. 3rd worst defence in the league.
    - Given the double in 28 people may be more open to considering some of their assets, but one team is BOU(a) and the assumption is (for most) Solanke likely to score.
    - Nasty fixtures GW30, GW31 & GW33.
    - Will be a proper back and forth game with NFO(h) in 29.
    - Because of DGW28 as well as GW29 I'd consider Doughty, Barkley, Morris.

    Nottingham Forest:
    - Barely keeping their head above water, joint-fourth worst defence in the league (with Brentford).
    - Will have a proper go at LUT(a) in 29 to put some space between themselves and the drop.
    - Only face two of the top six in their remaining 10 games (from GW29) would leave me more open to picking up one of their players as fodder.
    - I'd probably swerve their defenders and as an outside punt for a GK I'd consider Sels for fixtures like CRY(30), FUL(31), WOL(33), shu(36), bur(38)
    - Midfielders are sharing the responsibility so picking the right one of Elanga, MGW or CHO could be tricky. Elanga 1G, 1A in last 4. MGW 1G, 1A in last 4. CHO 3G, 0A in last 4.
    - With Wood out injured Awoniyi's return has come at a great time, 2G & 1A in his last 5 (worth noting only played 45 in two of his last 5 and 60 in two of his last 5, completing 90 just once).

    Fulham:
    - With GW29 opponents TOT being highly aggressive followed by fixtures like NEW(h), WHU(a) & LIV(H) in 32,33,34 I wouldn't want any FUL GKs or defenders. Even Robinson is doubling his xA
    - None of their midfielders stand out and their forwards are even more lacking with the exception of Muniz (he scoured four of their last eight).
    - Only asset I'd consider would be Muniz, barely, and that's because he's fodder.

    Tottenham Hotspur:
    - They really want UCL this year and they should walk Fulham, but you never know in a "London derby".
    - Most of us probably offloaded Porro from his injury but he should be back for GW29 if you haven't, and whilst I think Spurs walk this game Fulham have scored eight in the last four and Spurs aren't known for their defensive prowess. Vicario has 5 clean sheets in 25 games this season meaning they've conceded 38 goals in 20 games (nearly two per game) which means your defenders are likely getting one point unless picking up an attacking return.
    - Now that Richarlison is out for 2-3 weeks that leaves us looking at Kulu, Maddison & Johnson as the more affordable midfielders.
    - Son's only played 1800 minutes this season but is the fourth highest scoring midfielder with 142, (Foden 2130 to 143 | Salah 1800 to 167 | Saka 2130 to 169) which puts him in immediate contention.
    - Assets interested in; Porro (because most already have plus attacking returns) with Son, maybe Maddison.

    West Ham:
    - A tough game vs AVL in GW29, have they returned to form or did they just expose how poor BRE are this season?
    - Most already have Areola, check.
    - Emerson looks more lively with Paqueta back in the side but we can assume that with the worst defensive record in the top half of the table and only bettered by the likes of BOU, BRE, NFO, LUT, BUR, SHU that they will probably concede to a dangerous AVL side who have UCL aspirations. This rules Emerson and the rest of the WHU defenders out.
    - Bowen seems the go to now he has the three behind him he plays best with (plus Antonio's return should see him occasionally switch to RW where he flourishes). That's easy to say after he hits a hattie though, eh? Lovely fixtures vs an EVE side that would only be two positions better off if it weren't for their point deduction (15th > 13th) and 19th placed Burnley means he's a very viable candidate for GW29.
    - Alternative midfield options JWP (0 attacking returns in last 4), Kudus (1 attacking return in last 4), Soucek (0 attacking returns in last 4) and Paqueta (recently back from injury) leave you wanting more than what they're currently offering.
    - Only interested in; Areola (because we already have him) and Bowen.

    Aston Villa:
    - Only two clean sheets in their last 10 fixtures rules out Martinez and his constantly shape-shifting backline but if you had to pick it would probably be Cash or Moreno because, well... full-backs over centre-backs, huh?
    - In midfield most are eyeing up D. Luiz, in-form and on penalties, fun fact? No club in PL history has conceded more penalties than WHU (99) and to be more recent, they have conceded the joint most so far this season (6). Bailey is another performing well but his xmins leaves a little to be desired however they have increased each week since GW22 (28,59,72,80,90)
    - Only Haaland and Salah have scored more goals than Watkins so far this season, impressive given he's not on penalties. He's also joint-top for assists. He's also the top points scorer in the game, for good reason.
    - Desirable assets are Watkins and D. Luiz or Bailey.

    So why have I made this post? I've been thinking about FHing in 29 and then thinking the teams I'd want players from WHU, AVL face each other and then I already hold one of the two Spurs assets I want plus one of the Luton players, how many more do I really want? From what I've written I'd be missing out on Toney and Awoniyi and well with Solanke needed in 28 (and maybe 27) plus Haaland and Watkins, I'd don't have room for either really.

    So the question is what is the bare minimum you'd have in GW29 to make you not want to FH and do we think the points lost in GW29 could be easier to recoup in a later week where teams like MCI, ARS, CHE, LIV, TOT all double instead?? The ideal FH team would look something like;

    Flekken
    Porro, Doughty, Emerson
    Son, Maddison, Bowen, D. Luiz
    Watkins, Toney, Awoniyi/Morris

    So how many points do we expect this team to get over the players you probably already have from this team?

      Why would you need a FH to fill your team with "MCI, ARS, CHE, LIV, TOT"?

    3. Sterling Archer

      How many points above average do you think you get if you

      or
      FH34?

      First time I've seen this - and the post is good to digest, but I understand why the repetition can be spamming.

      But it's been ages since the suggestion of a better forum facility for FFS has been suggested, where are FFS with revamping this system? So many flaws with this existing messaging system as it stands.

    Best replacement for Richarlison:
    A: Son
    B: Luiz Diaz
    C: Bowen

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Easy decision... Son

      1. Steavn8k
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Cheers. Form the only thing keeping me from it, didn't look impressive against Wolves

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          2 week break should help

          1. Steavn8k
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Hopefully yes

  24. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Thinking I'm gonna do Estu Richa to Senesi Son -4, play Solanke Taylor as well, bench Hwang Porro, thoughts?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Senesi pick depends on if you are relying on him to start beyond 29. 2 YCs away from 2 game suspension is off-putting

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        GW27 and DGW only

    2. Steavn8k
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Considering the same move myself, playing Solanke, but benching Taylor

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If you can do Hwang to Son, i'd prefer that as it keeps options open for 29. Unless you are set on a FH in which case it probably is good moves.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Really think Rich may start? I may end up with injured Richa next week and no Hwang vs Fulham

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          No I don't, just offering the view on keeping options open

          1. Atimis
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            I mean, you are right as my first thought was to sell Hwang, on the other hand Hwang could be nice vs Fulham, really tough one

  25. putana
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    which to bring in this week:

    a) bowen
    b)barkley

    1. Fuddled FC
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Well Bowen is clearly the better option unless you;re thinking of the dgw and blank

  26. CoracAld2831
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Hwang to...?

    A: Maddison
    B: Bowen
    C: Luiz
    D: Diaz
    E: Other, who?

    Can't afford Son unless I take a hit.

  27. hazza44
    • 11 Years

      Same for me. Thinking either Solanke start or doesn't play at all, so starting him.
