    No FT. and no FH29
    Zabarnyi to:
    A - Estu
    B - Pau
    C - Not for -4

      You mean Zabarnyi in for, not "to"..?

    2. Traction Engine Foot

      Assuming you're selling Estu, him to Pau probably makes more sense if you're not using FH in 29.

        If you mean Zabarnyi in for Etsu or Pau then Etsu, not playing as regularly and no fixture next GW where you won’t be using the FH so keep Pau.

        I wouldn't trust Pau in his current condition with Europa League in the mix. Konsa should be the better option

      A

    Best option on WC of these?

    A Kudus
    B Bailey
    C Barkley
    D Maddison

    Whoever I choose will be sold for Salah in GW30.

      Hmm I think I'd go for Bailey. Pretty close with Maddison who I expect could pick up an assist this weekend but I think that Fulham might be a bit tougher than most are expecting, and West Ham defence would be my no.1 target in 29 (of those listed here, excluding Burnley)

    2. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Think I’d go for Maddison closely followed by Kudus with a good fixture this week. Bailey has looked great but could share minutes with Diaby who made an impact off the bench last week.

      D

    4. Traction Engine Foot
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Thanks all, seems nobody is keen on Barkley and I'm inclined to agree, depsite the extra game... The rest of my midfield is Son, Bowen, Saka, Luiz, so if I got Maddison or Bailey they'd probably be benched for Luiz this week, whereas I'd play Kudus over Luiz.

  3. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

    Bench:

    A) Haaland (I know)
    B) Maddison

    1. Gon Freecss
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning A)

      1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Even I am

    2. 112kane112
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      There just MUST be someone else in the starting 11 you can bench.

      If it's straight between these two, then B.

  4. Gon Freecss
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    It's a ridiculous question, I know ...

    But I have to bench one:

    A) Son
    B) Foden
    C) Haaland
    D) Watkins
    E) Bowen
    F) Saka
    G) Ode

    Was initially on Son, but now I'm leaning Foden or Haaland

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Are you playing 4-3-3? Who's your 8th attacker?

      1. Gon Freecss
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        3-4-3

        Solanke

        1. Gon Freecss
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Formation depends who I bench though

        2. Gon Freecss
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Could also be 3-5-2

        3. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Ah, I see. "Slighty tough" decision!! I'd look at history of the LIV v MCY match before making a decision. Although it freaks me out to even think of it, I'd agree with your initial assessment. Or possibly Ode because of ownership? Whoever you choose could, unfortunately, be very wrong. Good luck - but it's your fault for having such a good squad! 😀

    2. Gommy
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Tough, I would agree with either Foden or Haaland. Probably Foden.

      1. Gon Freecss
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks, yeah I think that makes sense. I'm trying to weigh up - who would Liverpool be most successful at restricting. But it's probably very marginal between the two

    3. Mother Farke
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah, has to be one of Haaland or Foden here. Surely you don't need double City attack at Anfield! If it was any team other than City, you wouldn't...

        B

    4. Pedersen

      Having Trippier and Hwang, but nothing ITB and only 1ft, whom should I get? Should I focus on defender ?
      I will FH29

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Trippier to Bournemouth defender probably

      2. Gommy
        • 14 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I had the same decision this week but without the money constraint. I went Trippier > Zabarnyi. I plan to FH29.

        1. Pedersen
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Sounds like the right move to do. Cheers

        Would be easier to answer if you posted your full team & money itb. But since it seems like your bench is Taylor Reguilon Hwang (correct? I checked your previous posts) I think the defender move is more urgent as Taylor/Reguilon would be lucky escape this week with a single point to their names

        1. Pedersen
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Thanks. I see you went up and above.
          Yes I think defense would be best, and answers says the same. I will look into Zab from Bou

      4. Tonyawesome69

        Difficult as Hee Chan is out longer than Trippier but Trippier is expensive. Probably Trippier to release funds

      Scoreline predictions for Liverpool vs City? I am on 1-1.

      1. SpaceCadet
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Same. 1-1

      2. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        2-2 Salah equaliser

      3. Traction Engine Foot
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        1-1 seems about right

    6. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      trippier to doughty or a bournemouth defender? cheers.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Depends on 29

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          FH 29. thanks

            BOU

    7. Keeptakinghits
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Bench Palmer, Foden, Son or even Haaland?

      I think one of the 1st two

      1. lilmessipran
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Foden reluctantly

        1. Keeptakinghits
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Thanks, I was swaying that way. Minileague leader I'm trying to chase has Foden but not Palmer so hopefully that will give a little differential.

          Liverpool look tight and City not been performing great, even though winning, but vs weak teams.

          Newcastle looks a mess defensively too, whilst Chelsea seem to be in better form now.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Tough one. I suggest having a look at any models e.g. FPL Review free model for expected points and bookies odds for each player/ team for expected goals to help make a decision

    8. SpaceCadet
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Thinking of playing kdb over foden as a differential. Foden the form player but kdb could come good in a big game. Too risky?

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Risky benching decision either way but tbh I don't like using EO as the decider

        1. SpaceCadet
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Hoping he hauls as most would start foden

    9. M1lkyBarK1d
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Is it worth a -8 to field only 8 players in GW29 to avoid using a FH? Or should I just play the FH.

      GW29 would be
      areola
      Doughty
      Kabore (Been my 3rd sub since the start)
      Son
      Bowen
      Morris
      Watkins
      Muniz

      Im thinking/hoping to get more points using FH later, poss GW34

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        That looks ok, just missing something like Bailey & Toney. So if that's around 10pts +8, see if you think you can do better than that with the projected fixtures for FH34:

        I'm not FH-ing in 29, even tho I will only have 7 starters max. I think there are greater gains in a FH in 34 or 37. Only 4 games in 29, they could all finish 1-1 with random goalscorers.

      A'noon all. GTG? 0FT 2.9 ITB

      Areola (dub)
      Gabriel - Walker - Zabarnyi
      Saka - Son - Palmer - KDB
      Haaland - Solanke (c) - Watkins

      Subs - Gordon, Van Hecke, Branth,

      Right to bench Gordon?
