    Subject to games falling nicely, is anyone on WC now considering going for BB34.
    BB37 just feels too far away to pre plan

    1. WVA
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Whichever you plan for will go horribly wrong and flop

      1. Cojones of Destiny

        this

      Fulham Spurs Wolves have tough fixtures in 34

        I'm a fulham fan.
        No such thing as a tough fixture for us now

        1. WVA
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Good point, its only Liverpool

    3. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes, that's my plan but I have free hit which I think might be more useful in 37. I think for a bench boost in 34 I'd have 10/11 doublers.

      1. WVA
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Roughly how would you BB in 34 look?

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Put about 2 minutes worth of effort into this but this is what I've got so far:

          Petrovic (ars/TOT) - Pickford (NFO+LIV)
          Gabriel (wol+CHE) - White (wol+CHE) - Gusto (ars/TOT) - Branthwaite (NFO+LIV) - Richards (WHU+NEW)
          Foden (tot/bha) - Son (MCI/che) - Palmer (ars/TOT) - Salah (ful+eve) - Saka (wol+CHE)
          Haaland (tot/bha) - Darwin (ful+eve) - Semenyo (avl+wol)

          Early thoughts: not decided between Son and Watkins, would like Van Dijk in there, can probably do better with all the cheap keepers (Kelleher, Dubravka, etc)

            Same ideas here.
            There's a core 8 or 9 that pick themselves thb

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Just like they did for FH29

          2. WVA
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Looks good to be fair!

          3. I Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Would replace Petrovic, Gusto and Son with doublers.

    4. I Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes I'm leaning towards BB34 and FH37/38 now.

    5. Zladan
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No, more BB value with 15 doublers.

      FH34 still reasonable number of double fixtures plus Salah and Haaland.

      1. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Are you WC now

    6. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Maybe, for my current team it might depend on whether Bournemouth get a double in GW34 or not.

  2. Botman and Robben
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Want to get the likes of Salah & Son and improve my bad D. WC time?

    Areola
    Gabriel Saliba Zabarnyi
    Foden KDB Saka Palmer
    Watkins Haaland Solanke

    Turner Taylor Gomez Hwang*

    Any way you would improve this FH team?

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      kdb to salah straight doable ?

      1. Botman and Robben
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        No, would need a -4 and look for 1.1M in cash by selling someone.

    2. bso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The choice is either Son or Watkins…almost impossible to have both and have Salah, Foden. Saka, Haaland.

  3. Cojones of Destiny
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Who would you rather go without to bring in Salah in GW30:
    a. Solanke
    b. Watkins

    no wc left

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Watkins

  4. The Big Fella
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    GW34 is a blank for 3 matches. When will the doubles be announced?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Currently predicted to have only 1 game blanking. Fixtures announced before 30

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Nope. Check out GW34 on the FPL game website itself. 3 blanks for that GW already on there.

    2. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      They're being announced over these next two weeks. Supposedly.
      We've already got the liv v eve dgw34 announced today.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        No confirmation on Everton Liverpool in 34

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

        But tbf Liverpool are out.

        Clubs might not want to play midweek after the Cup semi final which can go to extra time and penalties.

        Some might have to.

        Some might not mind if in European competition... Aka Man City.

        Man Utd play Bournemouth in gw33.

        Coventry City in gw34.

        Then Burnley in gw35 so there's space to play after Wembley.

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

      Is it?

      Or do they move to midweek as it's nearing season end?

      Blanks would be more disruptive and create an edge.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah check out GW34 on the game itself i.e. the official FPL page. Shows as 3 blanks that week

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Those 3 clubs' fixtures for that weekend have to be postponed but they can move to the midweek slot in GW34. According to Crellin its only Brighton that are expected to blank

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

          I guess the process is they blank then get re-arranged.

          One step at a time.

  5. Rhodes your boat

    A) Bowen to Salah, wc31
    B) wc31.

    1FT 8.4itb

    Kelleher
    Porro Ake doughty
    Saka son foden Bowen palmer
    Watkins Toney

    1. bobson5
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I have a very similar team and doing A then not wildcarding for a few weeks and praying that Haaland won't rack up the points

  6. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What to do here? Only WC and BB left, 0FT. Not liking my defense this GW

    Neto
    Gabriel Porro *Doughty
    KDB Foden Saka Palmer
    Watkins Haaland Solanke

    Areola Garnacho Saliba Baldock

    A) KDB -> Salah (-4)
    B) WC

  7. sirmorbach
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    After the worst FH ever, I'm kinda stuck here: I like the team, doesn't look WC material, but only route to Salah would be ditching Son and Solanke (or Saka and Watkins) for a hit.

    Leno
    Aké, Branthwaite, Robinson
    Son, Foden, Bowen, Palmer
    Haaland, Watkins, Solanke

    Areola, Saka, Gabriel, Doughty

    A. Go without Salah this week and reassess
    B. WC
    C. Ditch Son and Solanke (or Saka and Watkins) and get Salah

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      If you drop Son down to Richi does it free up enough to get Salah in for Foden or Bowen?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Sadly I can't, but I do appreciate it!

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Can you do Bowen & Watkins - Salah & Muniz/Semenyo?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I can if I get Semenyo! But would probably have to do it now as exact money...

  8. Hooky
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Forest taking a -4 this week. Bit of a gamble doing it so early with the International matches still to come.

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      F@@king Joke, City will be in the League One with the points they are due!!

    2. Tasty Jerk
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Cant believe its only -4 points, what a joke.

  9. Feanor
    • 15 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Worth a hit this week?

    Saka -> Salah
    Bowen -> Palmer

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Don’t mind losing Bowen but would want to keep Saka?

      Saka has double

    2. WVA
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I took a -8 for Son Bowen and Toney, i can confirm hits are not worth it

      1. Feanor
        • 15 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Shoulda got Muniz!

  10. g40steve

    -4 Tavernier & Ake/Saliba > Salah & Bradley/Gusto?

    Ake/Bradley Saliba/Gusto

    Neto
    Gabriel, Burn, #Ake,

    Flekken, Gordon, #Saliba, Doughty,

  11. Catastrophe

    How's the old WC looking? Worth downgrading Son to upgrade defence?

    Dubravka (Areola)
    Saliba, Branthwaite, Burn (Richards, Chambers)
    Salah, Son, Saka, Foden, Palmer
    Haaland, Watkins (Semenyo)

    Cheers

      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Have you played your BB? If you have, why not stick a 3.7 backup GK in? If you haven't then you probably have to make a downgrade somewhere (Watkins?) and in that case maybe try improve that dire keeper combo

      1. Catastrophe
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers. Still got BB, yep. It's a pretty horrific combo I would agree, although Areola is 1 point behind the leaders Onana & Leno who are 0.5M more expensive...

        Yeah Watkins is an option, quite keen to keep hold, mind.

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah I'm still astonished at where he is every time I watch West Ham defend! I think Pope is on the mend though so you may not get a DGW37 out of Dubravka

          1. Catastrophe
            • 13 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks, yeah. No other playing GK @ Dubravka's price so will either stick with him (actually rotates quite well with Areola for the rest of the season) or just downgrade him to 3.8 to upgrade defence. Hmm.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Catastrophe, goalkeepers at least.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Gabriel is cheaper than Saliba.

        1. Catastrophe
          • 13 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Good shout. Only a 0.1M saving for me, but a saving nonetheless!

      2. Catastrophe
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers - see above. Who would you suggest?

        1. Volley127
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Kehller over Dub seems like a shout. Likely double GW in 34.

          Alisson still likely still a month away+ (similar to Pope) but prefer Liv def.

          1. Zladan
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            More likely LFC double in 37 than 34, no?

            Alisson probably back for DGW37.

          2. Catastrophe
            • 13 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            That makes more sense. Cheers

    3. Zladan
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Areola to Petrovic.
      Saka to Kai.
      Watkins to Darwin.
      Saliba to Gabriel

      Richards May as well be Van Hecke then switch for 37.

      1. Catastrophe
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Think Kelleher may be a better option for Petrovic? Always a risk of Sanchez getting his place back and they look very dodgy at the back isn't it? Havertz seems a great shout but I just can't help but think his purple patch will be over soon. I like Darwin as an option but think I still prefer Watkins - are you basing that on the possibility of Liverpool DGW34? Already done the Gabriel switch.

        Cheers!

        We're 30 weeks in and people are still recommending Brighton defenders

  12. TeddiPonza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Current team:

    Dubravka (Areola)
    Porro Zabarnye Maguire (Gabriel Kerkez)
    Foden Saka Son Palmer (Barkley)
    Watkins Solanke Haalad

    Which option looks best.
    A. Save transfer and Foden and Watkins to Salah and Darwin next week
    B. Foden and Porro to Salah and Gusto/Branthwaite for a -4 and Watkins to Darwin next week
    C. Something else

    Thanks

      Unfortunately they did recoup a fair amount from sales last summer.

    Quite a few dilemmas this GW before WC31, and what good time to discuss them than the interlull.

    1: If I do Bowen to Salah, need to bench one of

    A: Saka
    B: Morris

    2: If I do Saka to Salah, need to bench one of

    A: Bowen
    B: Morris

    3: Wait on Salah, start all 3 of Saka, Foden, Morris and sell Taylor for

    A: VVD
    B: Robertson

    1. WVA
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Bench Morris

    3. RoyaleBlue

      1B

  15. WVA
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I want to WC but no point with this team is there?

    Areola
    Gabriel Udogie Zabarnyi
    Salah Son Saka Foden Palmer
    Watkins Toney
    Turner Morris Doughty Taylor

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No that team is more than fine for this week.

      1. WVA
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Probably not at the minute. I think most are using their WC to get Salah in. I'm guessing you have money ITB to get Haaland back sooner rather than later?

    3. RoyaleBlue
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      You have the ideal midfield. Only substantial miss from that team is Haaland and I suppose he is not essential this week. Don’t get me wrong, he could do well against arsenal, but I don’t think the odds are high enough to justify a WC to get him in

      1. WVA
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Ta mate

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Neto / Areola
      Porro, Bradley, Gabriel, Saliba, Doughty
      Son, Maddison, Palmer, Bowen, Foden
      Watkins, Morris, Muniz

      1 ft, 14.2 itb

      I don't feel like using WC this week either. Ars vs MCI could naturally be high scoring, but I doubt it. I am not sure I want Porro and Maddison long term, but Spurs are wounded and play Luton home next. Waiting is perhaps best option for us now.

      1. WVA
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah agree, thanks mate

    5. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Tbf you could wildcard your entire bench and some of your backline easily enough.

    Let the international duty injuries commence...

    Gabriel withdrawn from Brazil squad due to injury

      Hehe

      Nice little rest and then a bullet header at the Etihad

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Normal international injury(?)

    3. x.jim.x

      Brazil FA can expect an angry phone call off Karen Arteta any minute now...

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Gabriel Magalhaes withdrawal from Brazil squad is not due to serious injury - more precaution. Problem described as genuine but not ‘too bad’. Magalhaes has been carrying a foot issue - but no confirmation of the specific issue linked to his withdrawal.

        Arsenal want to win the league more than Brazil want to beat England at Wembley on Saturday.

        Tbf, most professional players will genuinely be carrying niggles by this stage of the season.

  17. Bobby Digital

    Bench one:

    A. Bowen(new)
    B. Saka(mci)

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      B

  18. Baps hunter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I thought 14.2 million is a lot of money, but I am actually 0.1 million short of getting Salah and Haaland for Bowen and Morris. No huge issue with Doughty, Porro and Saliba to downgrade and WC left though.

    1. conrad10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Salah nailed rise tonight

  19. GE
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Who to sacrifice for Salah?

    1) Watkibs (switch to 3-5-2)
    2) Foden (keep 3-4-3)

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Coin toss category, but Watkins has some difficult fixtures and Foden looks like a keep imo.

    In relation to the question posed by this article: THREE (WC, FH and BB). Now it's to decide when to use them!

      It is soon, but not yet.

        We need to know the fixtures first.

    I made affordable WC draft with "optimal" forwards. Defenders here are just place holders. 0.1 left itb. TV being okayish helps I guess.

    Neto/Areola
    Gabriel, Zinch, Romero, RAN, Bradley
    Salah, Saka, Son, Foden, Palmer
    Haaland, Watkins, Muniz

      Yeah that's a nice team. I'd maybe punt on someone else over Watkins though...

    As it stands gw34 is perfectly playable.

    Arsenal
    Liverpool
    Villa
    Palace or West Ham
    Everton

    If any double it's a bonus.

    I'd save a FH for gw38.

    I don't see that being challenging for many people with those confirmed fixtures and it will only get easier to play into.

      BRE and NEW good fixtures either side of 34 . CHE double due beyond 34 . No CITY .
      FH has to be optimal unless something realy funky happens with the doublesor not .

        It's a double shoot so perhaps BB34 and FH38 is on?

        Gw37 is going to be pretty wide open for dgw players without a chip.

        Added to that Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd could all play a match too.

    Liverpool could end up with 4 consecutive away fixtures in 10 days if the EVE/LIV game is added to 34.

    April 18th Atalanta A
    April 21st Fulham A
    April 23-25 Everton A
    April 27th West Ham A

      Tbf Everton is in Liverpool but I take your point.

      It has been pencilled out and the clubs are in talks.

      I wonder if Ben C got a Teams invite to the discussions? He could present them with all the possibilities.

    What defenders and goalkeepers would you recommend on a GW30 WC?

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

      Flekken
      Doughty Porro Coufal

      I'd avoid Sergio Reguilón Rodríguez tho.

    WC'ing who do you keep Foden or Saka? Salah/Son/Palmer/Garnacho the others

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

      Is Garnacho really ahead of Foden and Saka?

      Keep Saka because Foden will be saved for Champions League games too.

        Thanks. Purely cash flow - that’s what I’m on at the moment hoping Foden doesn’t punish me but pep roulette for the run in also scarred from past years! Watkins / Haaland up top means can’t afford the full midfield dream..
