    Zabarnyi or Doughty?

      Very good question.

      How have you assessed each player as an option for your particular team?

        I brought in Senesi last week trying to plan ahead for the double... got stung on that one now he's injured.
        So swapping him out for another defender with 2 fixtures. These are the best 2 options, but which to choose?
        Prefer Doughty for possible attacking returns, but Zabarnyi has better fixtures (both at home).

        1. Tonyawesome69

          Why are you looking at GW28 in isolation? Does the transfer affect future GWs?

          I should also say I'm free hitting in GW29 and Bournemouth's fixtures are better from GW30 onwards... I'm answering my own question aren't I! 🙂

            Bingo haha

            You got there in the end 🙂

              When did the FFS forum turn into a guided therapy session...

              Other than A and Bs?

              😉

          Have you considered Kerkez, as a more attacking Bournemouth defender?

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Issue is he isn't nailed to start beyond 30 unless Kelly is ruled out long term

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Also he isn't that attacking when looking at season data

              - Zabarnyi 0.02xG/90 and 0.02 xA/90
              - Kerkez 0.02xG/90 and 0.04 xA/90

          2. pghodge79
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            I haven't, but he's only got 1 assist all season and his minutes don't seem that secure.

            • 7 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Kerkez will most probably play against Ogbene or Kabore. That's a mismatch in terms of physical attributes and speed. Kerkez might be a good bet for a yellow card. Just saying.

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              What about the SHU game?

    2. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Doughy offers attacking potential, Zabarnyi doesn't
      Zabarnyi arguably offers better cleansheet potential with his two fixutres
      In insolation I'd back Doughty, but it also depends if you're free hitting in 29,if not you'd probably want the extra player I guess

    3. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      I have this same decision to make. Gonna get Zab i think.

    4. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Without a Doughty, I just bought Zabarnyi .

    5. Warby84
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Doughty on a lot of set pieces, so definitely him if any

    Hi all, I'm in a bit of a planning quandry which needs thinking about as early as next week.

    1) Get Toney for 29, and from 30, have to play 1 of Elanga or Morris every week
    2) Get Muniz for 29, and from 30, have to play 1 of Palmer or Muniz every week

    1. C'mon the Fylde
      • 9 Years

      2

    2. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      2

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Don't think you'll want to bench Palmer from 30 onwards

    4. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Wouldn't you want to play Palmer most if not all weeks anyway? That being the case I would say 2.) for sure.

    5. KeanosMagic
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      Thanks all! I'm just worried about Toney Hauling in 29 that's all

  3. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years

    Isn't Smith the best bou defender as 2 assists? Not sure can trust doughty

    1. Dubem_FC
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 16 days ago

      He is. Group think won't allow managers pay attention to him.

      1. Goodfeathers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Underlying stats suggest Zabarnyi has the greater goal threat and BAPS potential, so that's why i'm going for him.

        1. Goodfeathers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Vs Smith that is.

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Smith has 0xG all season

          1. Goodfeathers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Exactly 🙂

          2. Stranger Mings
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Tony maybe but Smith is more of a crosser rather than shooter

        4 months, 16 days ago

        Don't know what you mean by that - Zabarnyi seems the more popular option. But just seems a bit dull to me compared to Kerkez' performance v City (but no, I haven't seen all that much more of him)

        1. Eightball
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Look at Kerkez minutes though. I don't need that headache in my team. Quite fancy the Bouremouth fixtures after 29 until I wildcard around 35.

          1. Mother Farke
              4 months, 16 days ago

              It's key to remember Kerkez's minutes will improve depending on how long Lloyd Kelly is out for. It's a classic "wait for the pressers" scenario.

                Are you a Leeds fan, or just like the pun?

                  MF maybe kerkez good short term pick then

                4 months, 16 days ago

                Yeah that's fair. But I only need him to cover Bradley/ Gabriel v City in 28/30. Til 35 Zabarnyi is probably better

            • Stranger Mings
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Actually now looking at kerkez as seems to shoot plus cross so chance if assist or goal?

            • Stranger Mings

        Best option here?

        A) Estupinan -> KERKEZ (-4)
        B) Porro -> KERKEZ (-4)
        C) No hits

        Only B) gives me enough cash for Kdb -> Salah next week

        Areola
        Gabriel, Estupinan, Porro
        Kdb, Saka, Foden, KLUIVERT
        Haaland, Watkins, SOLANKE

        Do you reckon I'll be far off the free-hitters with this non-FH29 team?

        Leno
        Doughty Porro Taylor
        Bowen Son Maddison
        Watkins Morris Toney

        1. C'mon the Fylde

          I prefer Doughty.

          No FH29 - Doughty
          FH29 - Tav

        I know something’s going on…

        1. Goodfeathers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Do tell

      7. You've got red on you.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        a) -4 Neto (Shef and Luton)

        b) Areola (Bur)

        1. C'mon the Fylde
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I'd do A

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          If Areola keeps a CS then the hit isn't worth it for only GW28. If looking to use Neto in future GWs then the hit is worth considering

        As a usual dgw trap. Surely bmouth and luton gonna concede!

        1. C'mon the Fylde
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I reckon so.
          There's a chance Bournemouth get a clean sheet against Sheff Utd.
          With Doughty, we're more relying on his attacking returns than clean sheets.

        2. Eightball
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          It's exciting though!

        3. The Mentaculus

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years

          Think its pretty obvious what the appeal is given that Sheff Utd have only scored in 1 of their last 5 games (and conceded 18)

      10. grooveymatt65
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Hey guys, what do you think of the below team, Just hit the WC button and this is my first draft:

        Areola

        Gabriel Doughty Zabarnyi

        Foden Saka Bowen Son

        Morris Watkins Solanke (c)

        Kelleher Douglas Luiz Reguilon Van De Ven

        £10.6 itb

        What do people think?

        Thanks guys!!!!!!!!

        1. C'mon the Fylde
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Would you not prefer Kaminski or Neto to attack the dgw?

        2. Steiger
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          You need Palmer in there, for sure!

      11. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        With FH GW 29, worth -4 to bring in Zabarnyi for Trippier? Free up funds, potentially 2 DGWs and good fixtures.

        1. Eightball
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I did that move, all be it not for a -4 to free up funds for Salah in 30/31. Who would be starting if you didn't take the -4?

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Reguilón. Other defs are Trippier, Maguire, Kabore and Gabriel.

            1. Eightball
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              I think Reguilón gets 0 or even minus vs Arsenal. Probably worth the punt in that case but could go wrong.

              1. RamaJama
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years

                Cheers, GL!

      12. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Plan is Kdb and Foden to Salah and tavernier for free.

        Reckon trippier to a Bournemouth defender for -4 as well?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Not seeing the appeal going early on Salah. Also KDB and Foden are well rested for the weekend.

        2. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Wouldn't do that at all.

        3. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          No

      13. Warby84
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Play Ait Nouri or Van Hecke??

        1. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
          • 13 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          No issues with benching VH

      14. YoungPretender
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Planning FH29 and got 2 FTs;

        Areola
        Gabriel Virgil Gusto
        Saka Foden KDB Palmer
        Watkins Solanke Haaland

        Dubravka Taylor Estupinan Hwang*

        Thinking of Estupinan & Hwang > Zabarnyi & Tavanier.

        Would mean benching KDB/Foden and Gusto/Virgil…

        Thoughts?

      15. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        With KDB getting last night off, is KDB & Adebayo -> Bowen & Solanke still sensible?

        Alternative would be Haaland & Garnacho -> Bowen & Solanke. Keeps Adebayo (assuming fit enough for 29, likely benched in 28) and will WC Haaland back in in 30 or 31..

        Or am I overthinking it and just stick with the original?

        Thoughts on the below? 1FT 3.4m itb

        Neto (Sanchez)
        Saliba, Doughty Estupinan
        Bilva, KDB, Saka, Palmer
        Haaland, Semenyo, Watkins (C)
        Subs Trippier* Maguire*, Hwang*

        A Haaland/Maguire to Solanke/Emerson -4
        B Bilva/Hwang to Bowen/Taverner-4
        C Maguire/Hwang to Zaverni/Bowen -4
        D Semenyo/Hwang to Solanke/Douglas Luiz -4

          Selling Haaland for a hit ?

          If you are making such moves just go all balls out on Luton and get the 3 games 😉

          C - you need to sort that defence out

      17. Ibralicious
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Best move here?

        A) Turner —> Neto (FT)
        B) Haaland –> Morris (FT)
        C) Trippier + Turner —> Zabarnyi + Neto (-4)
        D) Trippier + Turner —> Doughty + Neto (-4)

        Cheers!

        Who would you prefer for the DGW alone?

        A) Doughty

        If B, which BOU defender?

          B Zaba

          Gw37

          Gw34 will be a mix

          Remember the big big doubles were COVID and Queen Elisabeth related...

          Not always a bonanza of doubles.

        Which defender would you rush the most to get rid of?
        A: Estu
        B: Trip

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          B

        2. AgentFern
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Estu for sure.

          Trips could be back soon and better fixture upcoming.
          however selling Trips could free up money for future GWs

          1. Steavn8k
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Cheers. Yeah, Trip would help me free up money for Salah, and get him without taking a hit for GW 30, although loosing Son.

        Just making sure, but if I FH in 29, I loose my free transfer for the week and only have 1 FT for GW 30, right?

        1. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Yes

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years

          Correct

          "Please note that when playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek."

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Foden or Son

          1. Eastman
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah I think it’ll need to be Son for me

          Solanke and Gordon out of my current front 8 provide they don't DGW34.

          Son, Saka, Foden, Palmer, Gordon
          Haaland, Solanke, Wadkins

          1. Eastman
            • 6 Years

            That’s my front 8 too

              Yes Solanke and Gordon to Salah and 4.2m forward leaves 0.3m ITB at the moment but should end up being prices out by GW30 deadline.

              1. Eastman
                • 6 Years

                  4.6m ITB as well thanks to a relatively cheap D

        Any Luton fans know if Kabore is nailed to play both games in the double?

        1. Mother Farke
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Not a Luton fan but I warned someone earlier that Kabore has been tactically subbed at HT at least twice this season.

          • Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Luton have injuries in defence and could get another start. I think it will depend on Hashioka starting at LCB.

        2. CRAZY TRAIN
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Current back three of Gabriel Gusto and Bradley going in to this gw with Taylor and Regulion on the bench. With Liverpool blanking gw29 and the prospect of TAA being back for GW30/31 thinking of trading Bradley for a Bournemouth defender (FT). Bradley's been good to own these past 2 weeks but feels like his time is done.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Might regret it

            Tbf

            I'm playing Gabriel, Gusto and Moreno with Bradley benched but he could assist?

            I'm playing Moreno for assist potential too.

            1. CRAZY TRAIN
              • 12 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Sounds sensible playing Moreno, just be mindful that Digne could impact his game time

            Do you have anything solid on Trent's return date? Because that Linders "after the IB" quote ended "after the IB means we don't know!" and included Jota in the same bracket as Trent. I suspect Bradley could be good for a while yet

            1. CRAZY TRAIN
              • 12 Years
              4 months, 16 days ago

              Nothing solid no, assumption based. You make a decent case for holding, like Angus says above I might end up regretting doing it

        3. Ronnies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Best option?

          A) Play Saliba
          B) Kabore to Doughty (-4)

          Cheers.

        4. Pianoforte79

          Captain Solanke or Bowen?

            Solanke has extra fixture

          My bus team

          Areola

          Gabriel Doughty Emerson

          Palmer Saka Barkley Son

          Morris (c) Watkins Haaland

          Leno Maddison Moreno Romero

          Which plan is better

          28: Haaland > Solanke (TC)
          29: Saka > Bowen (11 for 29)
          30: Doughty > Gusto

          or

          28: Morris (TC) - Roll FT
          29 Saka > Bowen (11 for 29)
          30 Doughty & Barkley > Gusto & Diaz

          Any ideas would be welcomed

            B perhaps but don't lose Saka ...
