      Are these based on bookies odds?

      Mad how City are so high when they've got a whopping ONE more clean sheet than United this season. United also haven't failed to score at the Etihad since 2017 (finished 0-0 with 10 men).

        Yup bookies odds.

        United have 0.9 goals odds

          Rashford to score in the 90th minute and point at his head, I will be there no matter what. Final score 6-1 City.

      After back to back cup CS, I expect Liverpool will be back to conceding silly goals and dropping 8 points for my fantasy team

    Who would you bring in for a hit t replace Hwang? probably FH in 29.

    A. Maddison
    B. Odegaard
    C. Martinelli
    D. Richarlison

    Thanks

      B or C has the biggest potential upside. I'd go B.

    Hi all.
    Would you play:
    A. Palmer - Brentford away
    B. Gordon - Wolves home

    1. Silecro
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      A. I would play Palmer vs literally anyone bar MCI, LIV, and ARS

    2. BeWater
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Palmer

      Shirely a way to play both? I'm benching Alvarez to do so

    That means reduced by 10% or 1.5 players injured 🙂 ... doesn't seem a reason to wildcard

    What about WC33, BB34, FH37?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Better teams probably won't double in 34

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Could be tough owning a decent bench for BB if Son, Salah, Haaland, Saka are all doubling in the same week.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 15 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          True, still have to build towards 37 to get the most out of 34.

          1. Karan14
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 22 days ago

            This could be decent strategy if it allows you to hold the good SGW34 players and BB in 34 with lesser team. Can cherry pick the premiums for their double in 37 then. But it all depends on how the fixtures fall which is why its slightly tempting to just see off BGW29 without FH.

    2. Camzy
      • 14 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Don't like BB34 as much as 37.

  6. Alejo - CFC
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Richarlison to Son on a FT?

    Obvious Yes?

    1. Rhysd007
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      2-3 weeks for Rich looks like he's missing the blank GW, so yeh I think now that's a move I have to do too.

  7. Karan14
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Have Porro, Estu & Cash.

    Take a hit for a defender?

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Presser dependent (Porro injury, Lamptey fitness for Estu) but potentially, depending who you bring in and chip strategy

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah its between between a Bou def or Doughty I feel. Already double Arsenal so im good with 2 spots. Still not certain about FH in 29 or not.

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          If you decide on FH29, I'd go for a Bou defender. That double looks so good.

          1. Karan14
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 22 days ago

            Even if I dont im tempted go for Bou def. Better fixture in 30 as well.

    2. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Let's decide after the pressers

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        True

  8. Corgz Dark side of the Loon

    I know the press conf coming soon, but any news/rumours on Darwin playing ??

  9. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Hello friends, would you help me out with this please?

    My team is decently set up to navigate 29 without a free hit. I can see why FH29 appeals and I'm not criticising that approach - I just don't think it's the one for my squad. I have 6 confirmed players for 29 at the moment, plus Kabore.

    With that in mind, what would you do here?

    A) Estupinan to Gabriel for free (means I'd need a hit to get to 9+ players in 29 but I have no Arsenal defence)
    B) Estupinan to Doughty for free (4 fixtures compared to Gabriel's 2)
    C) Save FT
    D) Something else

    Basically, Gabriel v Doughty. Not getting Gabriel back has cost me a lot of points but do I just take my medicine and bring him back on WC31? Or bring him back now?

    1FT 1.1ITB
    Areola
    Cash Estupinan Robinson
    KDB Saka Foden Bowen
    Haaland Watkins Solanke*

    Dubravka Gordon* Reguilon Kabore

    Thanks

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      4 months, 22 days ago

      I think C is an easy pick in your case, especially if you are committing to no FH in 29

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Cool, thank you. Just start Reguilon if we get the impression Estu is benched again? Will monitor pressers

    2. Vovhund
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Save! A transfer for a non-GW29 CB (Gabriel) doesn't make sense when planning for 29. Dourghy is the better move, but no need to rush it.

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Thank you. Good to sense-check these things!

    What's the deal with Estupinan? Will he start or do I ship him out?

    1. Rhysd007
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Same question from me! I think await presser.

      1. nico05

        Cheers mate not seen them much just noticed all the anti Est talk recently and got me wondering

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      A lot of us wondering the same I think. Hopefully De Zerbi gives some hints

      1. boc610
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        he already has. thinks he's playing sh It therefore out the team right now.

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          I know. But if Lamptey's injured (he missed the FA Cup game with a knock, right?), with Hinshelwood and Milner already out, he might have to play him

          1. nico05
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Sounds a little bleak does this ha ha

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              4 months, 22 days ago

              It's been a bleak season - I have to cling to whatever hope I can!

  11. Rhysd007
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Won't be free hitting - playing 8 with no -4s is my plan.

    Would you ship Estu out for Doughty this week for free?

    Areola/Dub
    Regu/Estu/Saliba/Anderson/Senesi
    Gross/KDB/Foden/Saka/Rich
    Wat/Solanke/Alvarez

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I'm considering the same move (as above). Will re-evaluate after pressers

  12. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 15 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Currently own Areola, Porro, Taylor and Watkins for GW29 and have 3 FT to get to GW29.
    Rather not FH29 but certainly in my mind. Guessing many have a similar issue.

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I think that's where it's tricky - around 4/5 players. I've got at least 6 and will save my FH but in your case I'd be tempted to use it

      1. IAWC ( It's a Wonderfu…
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        What if u have only Taylor and watkins. 2 players

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          you free hit

    2. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I think 8 players should be minimum

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 15 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Not afraid of hits seeing the majority would be on attackers.

    3. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Spurs mids, Bowen, Toney should all repay the hits till GW30 imo.

    4. IAWC ( It's a Wonderfu…
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I have only Taylor and watkins ha. Guess have to fh

    5. NobodyF*cksWithTheJesus
      • 13 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I have the same as you plus Richarlison. Atm I'm thinking FTs and maybe one hit to target Bowen, Son, Toney, maybe Villa mid, maybe doughty or another doubler in 28. Save FH for later

    6. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Currently have: Areola, Pau, Udogie, Luiz, Watkins.

      Thinking:
      GW28: Haaland, Estupi > Morris, Doughty (-4)
      GW29: Solanke > Toney (& maybe a hit for Son)
      GW30: Luiz/Gordon > Palmer
      GW31: WC

  13. el polako

    Senesi to be double booked in time to miss 2nd game of the DGW, after masses brought him.
    We just know it don’t we?

    1. HashAttack
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Does getting to 10 YC mean a 1 or 2 match ban
      Even if Senesi makes it through the double, it would be a shame to miss 2 of the following matches (EVE, CRY, lut)

      1. shorey143
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        And that is what people are forgetting by not looking past 28/29

      2. Mumfie
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Sure I read in an article it was a 2 match ban.

        Correct me if I’m wrong.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years

          You're correct

        2 match ban

  14. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Think I'm moving Maguire out for Denesi this GW (not that bothered by his yellows).
    Does a FH 29, WC 30/31 or WC 28 look best here we reckon.
    Could also just take a 1 week punt on an Arsenal player if 100% WC next week.

    *GW 29, 4 atm.. although one of them is Beyer.
    Dubravka.
    Gabriel, *Porro, Trippier.

    Hwang > Son for free ? Uses the Salah reserve fund I had been saving

  16. Mama Murphy's chair
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Which one to start?
    A) Konsa
    B) Estupinan
    C) Taylor

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Is Konsa fit?

      B if there's a hint Estu starts

    2. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      4 months, 22 days ago

      A.

  17. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Anything worth a -4 here? 2.8m in the bank & unsure on leaving Palmer/Porro on the bench but no idea who to drop for.

    Areola
    Porro - Gabriel - Senesi
    Saka - Bailey - Foden - KDB
    Solanke - Haaland - Watkins

    Dubravka - Palmer - Botman - Doughty

    1. Kodap
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      oops, Botman/Porro supposed to be other way round

    2. Rhysd007
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      No to -4

    3. shorey143
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      If you’ve already got a bench dilemma why would you take a hit?

  18. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Is it worth doing KDB ---> Son for free?
    It may cost a -4 if I decide to have triple Bournemouth for GW28.

    1. Kodap
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I wouldn't do that yet, KDB back seemingly to good fitness before a huge derby game, can see him scoring well.

    2. Camzy
      • 14 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I did it. It's probably happening next week anyway and fits with my overall plan. The timing might not be perfect but I think Son can outscore KdB this week.

    3. shorey143
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I don’t have either so can take the emotion out of it, I’d keep KDB and the points/transfer

    4. nerd_is_the_werd

      Thanks all

  19. Camzy
    • 14 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    For GW30 and beyond I'm looking to get to:

    Salah Son Saka Foden Palmer
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    Problem is funds are too tight. I have to sacrifice one of them. Who would you lose? (can't lose Palmer because he wouldn't raise enough funds)

    Currently thinking Solanke > Mateta/Muniz/Semenyo and plan to bench them every week unless they have a DGW. Mateta looks decent for it since they might double in 34.

    The other option is Son > Richarlison/Maddison

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Had a similar thought when drafting my likely WC31. I had Semenyo in that one with a potential BB37 in mind. I've had some success with Mateta and Edouard in the past (yes, really!) so, if you're not looking to FH34, Mateta is a decent bench option.

    2. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Given Solanke's fixtures get a little tougher at the tail end of the season I'd probably sacrifice him.
      But there's also a chance Son's output isn't as good with Richi up top - not basing that on any stats, just think Son is better when he plays up top rather than on the left.
      Having said that, I think Son is a better asset than Solanke.

      1. Camzy
        • 14 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Problem is his fixtures from GW30-34 are really nice. And I'd plan to WC35 so it wouldn't really matter.

        It's a problem for later obviously but worth looking ahead to what I might decide to do come GW30. A -4 to get Salah looks likely and then I'll have to pick my sacrificial lamb from Son, Watkins, Solanke most likely. Maybe an injury will make that decision easier.

    3. Munchen KFC
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Looking at something very similar. Team value isn't great so toying with the idea of keeping Solanke and downgrading Watkins.
      Obviously fraught with danger but happy to talk the risk

    4. HashAttack
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Would you get those front 8 if you could afford it - certainly would be a weekly dilemma as to who to bench

      1. Camzy
        • 14 Years

        Yes I would.

        I could technically afford it if I did like Porro > 3.8m defender.

        But then my defense would be Gabriel, Senesi, Zabarnyi, Reguilon, 3.8m which is really not great. I think I'd rather pick a sacrificial lamb from the front 8 and ease the bench headache in the process.

          Just tried to build that team myself
          Defence would have to be 5 defenders for a total of 22.5m

          As a sense check why not look at total points then an alternative with a better defender and budget forward

          My gut is telling me to go really cheap at the back. Aside from Gab I’m getting ones and twos from the likes of Porro/Walker/Estu so they will be gradually weeded out when I get the luxury of spare transfers

    Salah/Foden -> Son?

    Neto
    Gabriel Ait-Nouri Senesi
    Salah Saka Foden Barkley
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    Areola Garnacho Van Hecke Pau

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Salah if it sounds like he'll miss out

  21. FPL Brains
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    If KDB plays, that's going to hurt Foden's output right?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      It didn't impact his hatty against Brentford when both started...

    What changes would you make here I think I need hits this wrek and next to field a team for 29 but not to sure on who to Prioritise or if I should roll and deal with it next week. 1FT 0.2ITB

    Areola
    Gabriel, Senesi, VVD
    Palmer, KDB, Foden, Saka
    Haaland, Watkins, Solanke

  23. The Pep Revolution
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    What would you do here:

    Areola Dubravka
    Gabriel Alex Moreno Reguilon Kabore Maguire
    KDB Foden Saka Palmer Richarlison
    Haaland Watkins Toney

    I'm thinking just Kabore to Senesi. Would leave me

    Areola
    Gabriel Alex Moreno Senesi
    KDB Foden Saka Richarlison
    Haaland Watkins Toney

    Dubravka Palmer Reguilon Maguire

    Is that strong enough for this week?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Any transfer now is dependent on strategy for 28 and 29.

      I would be tempted to start Palmer every game and have a team balance that allows this

  24. No Kane No Gain
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Start Senesi or Doughty this week?!

    1. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Doughty

  25. Tonyawesome69

    Nunez and Szoboszlai trained yesterday and in contention to face Forest. Endo and Robertson set to train today.

  26. bonnnq
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Martinez Leno
    Saliba Pau Castagne Burn Porro
    Saka Foden Odegaard Palmer Hwang
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    Will probably FH29

    Thoughts on Foden>Son?
    Son seems heavily favoured this week, but Foden against that MUN defense could do well too...?

    1. Forlorn Hope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      My exact dilemma too!!
      Edging towards Son though

    Klopp on Salah: "I don't think Mo is too far off, but he won't reach tomorrow. Next week it's possible. On the way back but not there yet."

  28. FootballRookie
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 22 days ago

    Who would you prioritise to bring in this week?

    A) Douglas Luis
    B) Odegaard

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Depends on BGW29 plans

      1. FootballRookie
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 22 days ago

        Not going to Free Hit .

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          Straightforward decision then...

  29. Letsgo!
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    So alvarez will start vs manutd?

  30. Catastrophe
    • 13 Years
    4 months, 22 days ago

    1 FT, 2.5M ITB - advice appreciated. Will likely FH in 29. Not looking great, but save FT?

    Dubravka
    Saliba, Burn, Porro*
    Saka, Foden, Odegaard, Richarlison
    Haaland, Watkins, Darwin*

    (Areola, Gordon, Reguilon, Maguire)

    Thanks!

      Yes save imo. Darwin trained, and you have Gordon coming in for Richarlison if injured. Regulion in for Porro, who can get attacking returns
