    No Son in 2 of the experts picks (Neale & Tom J). Why’s that?

      Surely you guys don’t think luis Diaz is more likely to return?

      I mean he could, but unlikely

      a) definitely not an expert and b) I discuss it in my answer!

      Spurs looked quite limp last time out, they were for a couple of games before that too. It's the unknown quantity with Palace, under a new boss and employing the same wingback system that Wolves used to suffocate Spurs in GW25. I don't think he's a bad pick at all (I mention that in my intro), just that there are more 'knowns' about the other midfielders and the teams they're facing.

        Hi Skonto, I think you should have quoted Donald Rumsfeld in his famous speech about 'knowns', it still makes me laugh watching his efforts to BS convincingly:

        "There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."

      Surprised Kelleher didn't make any of the 3 squads either

    Palace will have a spring in their step under a new manager. Wouldn't advice taking hits to bring in spurs assets.

    1. HNI
      • 11 Years

      Not Spurs defenders yes but attackers will prosper as cpl manager plays attacking football..It could be 3-1 to Soursy

    Currently have Watkins & Taylor available for BGW29. That's FH territory right there, correct?

    When else to use it? Is the an better weeks coming up?

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Flekkin - Areola
      Porro - Moreno - Doughty - Regulion - Bench
      Son - Bowen - Richarlison/Maddison - Kudas - D Luiz
      Watkins - Toney - Bench

      That be decent?

      1. HNI
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I would play 3-5-2 with Barkley starting instead of Doughty

        1. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Already have five in midfield, three from those four defs will start...

      Looking forward to Fa semis most likely will have Mcity, Liverpool, Chelsea, Wolves. Which GW will they have blank if they play in Fa cup semis? That will help us understand how to double up on WC before DgW 34

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        FA Cup semi finalists will blank in the weekend of GW34 so it won't be a DGW 34 for any of them.

      Nothing a few hits can't fix. Save the FH for 38 😆

    4. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 13 Years

      You're asking if 2 players will be enough for gw29? That's a no, chief.

    5. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      absolutely, very similar here. Remember you will likely use transfers for the likes of bournemouth players too.

      So if you avoid a few hits and then get full 11 out, you should be well up on points een with a middling week

  4. TKC07
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    I think we should reconsider the FH decision criteria to be least 3 attackers now..

    Even if you have 4 playing defenders (CTaylor, Bell, Areola, etc.) their total sum might only be upto 4-5 points..

    1. DGW blindness is for Kinnea…
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      This. I'm FHing because I don't expect many CSs.

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        In BGW29?

        1. DGW blindness is for Kinnea…
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Yes. I expect all 8 teams to concede. That means goals. That means load up on mids and attackers

    2. jack88
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Pretty sure i will be FH ing. You built a team for only 4 matches with no big club player. Cant field all 11. A lot of disadvantages

  5. The Knights Template

    New Palace manager furiously polishing that t@rd!

    Any news on Salah recently?

  7. Hanz0
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Would you do Neto (New A) >> Bowen (Eve A) for a -4?

    If I don't do it now will still end up doing it for a -4 in BGW29

    Worth doing it early?

    1. NZREDS
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      That’s tough, I probably wouldn’t for -4, Bowen will probably troll new owners with a blank - could be entirely wrong of course! If anyone’s getting points for wolves with their injuries now it’ll likely be Neto

      1. NZREDS
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        And the magpies are looking leaky..

  8. Legohair
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Foden to Son this week too sideways?

    1. NZREDS
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I’d keep Foden against United, rested and will probably wreck United’s defence

    Jota > son/richa/gordon

    1. NZREDS

      Son from those for me

      Yeah Son

    RP

    G2G? Or play Bradley over Porro?

    Areola
    Gab Saliba Porro
    Saka Foden Son Gordon
    Haaland Solanke Watkins

    Dub Palmer Bradley Branthwaite

    1. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Wait for pressers to see which def to play.

  11. NZREDS
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Benching palmer against a side who just shipped 4 for goals to west ham is bold, would start him over Gordon for sure. Palmer my priority transfer in for hwang. Guess he can be first sub for Solanke if still injured

    1. NZREDS
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Four*

    2. The FPL Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Good points. I might bench Solanke and play Palmer. Solanke normally plays every minute so must be something there.

      1. NZREDS
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah I’m doing exactly the same pending news on Solanke in which case a benching is incoming!

        1. NZREDS
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Benching headache*

  12. Zarraga
      2 months, 24 days ago

      What happened to Richarlison? Any info?

      1. NZREDS
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Didn’t train but looked in good spirits - may or may not be anything but will have to wait for the presser unless anything emerges earlier

    • Botman and Robben

      1FT, 2.2M ITB

      Estupian -> Gabriel? Y or N?

      Areola

      Foden KDB Saka Palmer

        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Looks good, could consider a Bournemouth def for the DGW but for this GW is great. Would prefer hwang to palmer to cover for a possible Solanke injury sit out. I’m in the same predicament with pervis but still going hwang to Palmer. If David Brent if as leaky as last week Palmer could haul and make up for a pervis cameo

        1. Botman and Robben
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I have Palmer already.

          1. NZREDS
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Oh lol must be going blind with old age!

            1. Botman and Robben
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Haha, not to worry. Hope you get a lot of points this GW.

      Gross going under the radar again. Excellent

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah

        I'm thinking of getting Gross back in rather than Bowen this week.

    • Dollyems15
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Looking to set transfers up building up to gw29, so far i have the following team for it:
      Leno
      Porro, Doughty, Moreno
      D Luiz, Richarlison, Bowen,
      Watkins

      Looking to do the following transfers after gw 28: De Bruyne to Son and Solanke to Toney. I was thinking of one of the following changes after gw 27, either Haaland to Morris or Foden to Barkley just so i can catch Luton dgw in 28 as well. Which transfer is best?
      I will be playing my wildcard after gw29

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not sure if I should take a hit for Hwang or Estu. Who to bring in for Hwang?

      A. Bailey
      B. Maddison
      C. Richarlison
      D. Who Else?

      Dubravka
      Gabriel | Branthwaite | Estupinan
      Saka | Palmer | Foden | Son
      Haaland | Solanke | Watkins

      Areola / Hwang / Porro / Konsa

      Thanks

      Morning folks. Would you start Udogie, Senesi or Alvarez ahead of my current starting Xl?

      Neto

      Trippier Gabriel Saliba

      Saka(c) KDB Son Palmer Gordon

      Toney Watkins

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Trippier - Senesi

    • Claudio555
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Bench Palmer or Gordon?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        That’s tough, no one else that you can bench?

        1. Claudio555
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          That would be Solanke

          1. The 12th Man
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            You might not have an issue then if he’s out.
            I’d reluctantly bench Gordon.

    • The 12th Man
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I can get this team out for a cost of -4 by 29.

      Flekken
      Moreno,Doughty
      Paqeuta,Bowen,Barkley,Son
      Watkins,Toney

      Kamanski,Saka,Haaland,Trippier,Senesi,Gabriel

      So that’s 9 players for 29.

      Benifits of FHing in 29 for me are 2 extra players plus 4 points.
      Plus I’d be doing Toney > Watkins this week for the Luton game rather than waiting until 29 when I’d do Solanki > Watkins.
      I’d be keeping Garnacho instead of going Paqueta too.

      I’m torn.

      1. g40steve

        I’m in FH camp, teams so much better set for after the blank.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Yeh makes sense but I’m bringing in Bowen and Watkins anyway in the coming weeks so kind of heading the way of no FH.

          If Salah is fit I think that would definitely sway me into FHing in 29.

      I know it's crazy but who to start:

      Favouring Neto.. Nailed and even more explosive against a tight United D.

        Haaland could EASILY be stifled. And it's a great chance to make up ground. Arsenal will absolutely massacre Shef U.
