      BB in DGW37 without Hasland is brave. You must believe City will have wrapped up the title by then and are in same finals in which case it could be genius

        Title going to the wire surely, with 3 good horses in it, doubt 2 will fall of pace that badly for it to be wrapped up early.

      I'm definitely not doing that.

      I am on WC and considering same. From last 8 PL games where they have played these are the popular scorers returns.

      Goals/Assists
      Watkins 7/4
      Hojlund 7/2
      Muniz 7/1
      Wood 6/1
      Darwin 5/3
      Isak 5/0
      Haaland 4/2
      Morriss 4/1
      Solanke 3/2
      Alvarez 2/2
      This is not an exhaustive list.

      I will be going without him this week at least

      yep. Spent my money on three decent forwards and a banging midfield which includes Salah and Son

    I'm on a -4 already. have TC, FH, WC left. thinking of possibly wildcarding today with the future in mind because of the flagtastic nature of my team, FH34 and then WC35, TC36 Palmer.

    I feel I could navigate 31-33 fairly reasonably with this team, how much stronger could I make it now and gamble on having a 35/36/37 team full of Spurs and Chelsea? You can hide Petrovic and Gusto if you don't wanna play em. Feel like I'm talking myself out of it.

    90 points ahead of mini-league rivals who have all used their free hits. What would you do with this team? Tempted to Wildcard and BB GW34, get Salah and Son and just nullify until end of season.

    2.9 ITB, 1 FT, Wildcard and BB left

    --------------

    Neto, Turner

    Gabriel, Zabarnyi, Virgil, Digne, Estu

    Saka, Foden, Maddison, Palmer, Gordon

    Watkins, Haaland, Solanke

      Your key is having Salah in there as well. Those behind you need to be captaining someone you're not, as you don't have Salah they should all be captaining him as it's a double hit to you.

      I'd WC if I was you and make sure you have all the key players like Gabriel, Salah, Saka, Palmer, Son, Haaland and Watkins. If you have those 7 catching 90 points on you will be nigh on impossible!

    FPL Challenge.

    1) Uses same prices as current FPL.
    2) Usual budget 100m.
    3) Up to a max of 5 players from 1 team
    4) Prices will continue to fluctuate alongside FPL
    5) Each week you pick a completely new team, as if you had a free hit every week.
    6) Captains still score double.
    7) Each week there will a a special gamestate you can choose to take advantage of...or not.

    GW30: Unlimited Budget
    GW31: Forwards score double points (all three)
    GW32: Red Rivalry (All Manchester United and Liverpool players score double points)

    Subsequent 'Challenges' will be announced each week.

      Could be a bit of fun on the sidelines - something to turn to once your proper season goes pear-shaped. When is it due to start?

      1. Evil Greg
        • 14 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        today I think. I imagine Lee and Sam accidentally scheduled their video release for 4am instead of 4pm, something like that.

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 20 hours ago

          Cool. I'll set aside some time on Thursday or Friday.

    2. Tarby
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      I thought was unlimited budget every GW, but that's just this GW. Makes it a bit better I think then

      I'd like if the GW scores were added up though, could be fun for ML's then

    It's mad that the prevailing advice for chips and team selections is heavily dominated by Spurs, often to the detriment of picking Arsenal or Liverpool players in the meantime...

    All with gw37 in mind.

    https://twitter.com/RadarFpl/status/1772000909515428070?t=9VxQODdQdpRf_hN-QxGP5w&s=19

    I get that Spurs can do well in the next few. But why is gw37 more valuable than gw34??

    1. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      it's not that, it's just that the overwhelming majority will FH34.

      it's fix team now, get fundamentals in place for BB37, FH34 as all those players do not double afterwards. it makes a lot of sense. having your free hit is probably worth around 50 points over those people who used it now.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        I've just read this article and see that.

        I'd still go the opposite way and load up with Arsenal and Liverpool and BB34 and just FH37.

        Even with my team I can easily have Man City and Spurs and possibly Brighton players doubling in gw37.

        It's a bold claim of 50 points and I feel you might have been drinking too much fuzzy juice.

        The thing is, if gw34 is high scoring that bench boost will need to be factored into what happens in gw37.

        It's kinda Arsenal and Liverpool v Spurs and Chelsea on chip strategies now and i know who i would favour 9 times out of 10!

        1. Evil Greg
          • 14 Years
          28 days, 20 hours ago

          I need it to be, how i twisted my team up around the liverpool doubles and then subsequently BGW29 I've a lot of catching up to do!

    2. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      If you don't have FH then you dead end to 34, WC35.

    3. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      GW31 I'll probably punt Havertz over Darwin.

  6. juicewagz

    90 points ahead of mini-league rivals. What would you do with this team? Tempted to Wildcard and BB GW34 to be unassailable until end of season.

    2.9 ITB, 1 FT, Wildcard and BB left

    --------------

    Neto, Turner

    Gabriel, Zabarnyi, Virgil, Digne, Estu

    Saka, Foden, Maddison, Palmer, Gordon

    Watkins, Haaland, Solanke

    1. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      I think it's probably safer to deadend to 34, WC35.

      1. juicewagz
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        Lots of rotation in GW37 no? Could be a total waste of bench boost?

        1. Evil Greg
          • 14 Years
          28 days, 20 hours ago

          I would bench boost as soon as you get a good week for it. probably 36/37/38 after WC though you'd assume.

  7. The Pep Revolution
    • 12 Years
    28 days, 20 hours ago

    Do we want to be loading on Spurs assets? They let us down very badly in GW29. I think WC for BB34 then get in a couple of Spurs and Chelsea players for GW35/GW36. Then FH in 37 when we will have a much better idea what is going on. Between teams being stuck in position, teams with nothing to play for, rotation and injuries, planning a WC30 for BB37 doesn't seem optimal.
    It's too long for a starting 11 in normal time, never mind a full 15 at the end of the season.

    1. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      But what if you only have WC, FH and no bench boost? Would you be more comfortable wildcarding now or 35 after FH34? Team dependant right?

      1. The Pep Revolution
        • 12 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        In that case it is team dependant and it very much depends on how many you currently have for GW34. If you are all set for that then I guess WC35 and FH34.

        So many strategies this stage of the season, hard to know which is the right one.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      I agree but it seems that's a minority view.

      I'm kind of glad the edge is that way. I'm basically betting against Spurs and tbf, besides the Luton game I don't mind until gw37.

      I could even trade Foden for a spurs player up to £10.5m, but he'll probably do well if Man City do beat Arsenal in the title challenge.

      1. The Pep Revolution
        • 12 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        I think more will come around to thinking that way. Like it is so hard to predict a BB team for GW37. There are less doubles on top of everything else making it harder to find a full 15 who play twice, a much easier thing to do for BB34.

        Also many will find themselves racing their plans against real life. Like "I will have Spurs players as long as they're still going for x". Well you are hoping they are still chasing x come GW37 or your plans are out the window. Could happen Spurs can't achieve x at that point, they put out a rotated squad to give others game time. All that planning gone.

    3. Tarby
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      I don't! Maddison is no better than Palmer but a lot more expensive, Garnacho is probably as good even yet 3m less. Porro is off set pieces now Maddison is back as well so he's not good value.

      I'd like Son, but that's it from Spurs for me.

      And for a good BB I'm just looking at the cheap players doubling. Basically you want your cheap defenders to double and hope they score well, for me that's all you can hope for from a BB.

  8. The Red Devil

    Currently, I have 6 doublers for 34, obvious move is WC35+BB37, but how about I BB in 34 using 1/2 hits till 34 & load up on pickford eze/olise some wolves & triple pool & then WC out of it in 35 & focus entirely on first XI for last 3 weeks

    Thoughts?

    1. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      getting your BB out if the way before WC does mean you can decimate your bench afterwards if you want to, Lascelles, Gusto, Petrovic, Muniz etc.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        True & honestly if I BB in 37 I'll still want salah/saka probably so might as well focus on XI players

    2. Silecro
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      Its easier to load up using WC, taking hits for bench players until gameweek 34 can be costly at this stage of the season, you are looking at potentialy -12 for the next couple of weeks, and that is provided nothing happens which would make you deviate from the plan (injuries, etc), which very rarely happens

    3. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      I've looked at this too (I have 7 doublers in 34) and I think it's a good attacking option if everything goes well - if you do get a couple of injuries, it is possible to switch strategies too without too much harm. Not sure I will go for it, but it is a consideration.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 20 hours ago

        Exactly, it's not a set in stone strategy, will probably decide around 33/34 depending on injuries suspensions plus anyways my transfers will be around bringing in 34 doublers

  9. Silecro
    • 6 Years
    28 days, 20 hours ago

    Morning fellas. Advice needed.
    Have WC and BB available, is my team better constructed to WC in 35 and BB in 37?

    Kelleher*,
    Zabarny*, Brantwaithe*, Gabriel*
    Salah*, Saka*, Palmer, Bowen
    Solanke*, Watkins, Haaland

    Neto*, Colwill, Gross, Robinson
    0ft, 0.0 itb

    6 doublers for 34, can get to 10 with free transfers

    1. The Red Devil
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      I think you must decide now whether you'll go with 15 doublers whenever you BB, if you are fine with a few SGWers in your BB, BB34 is also decent

      1. Silecro
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Cant get anywhere near 15 doublers for GW34 without a lot of hits, so leaning definitely towards BB37

        1. The Red Devil
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 19 hours ago

          Then taking hits for salah/saka in 38 or using FH?

            Safe to say FH is gone.

            1. The Red Devil
              • 9 Years
              28 days, 18 hours ago

              Gotta cover all bases TM

  10. Tronity
    • 10 Years

    Thoughts on Foden and Bowen > Garnacho and Salah for a -4?

    1. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      yes

  11. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 20 hours ago

    Just WC now and FH34?
    Or get Salah and Palmer, wait one more week with WC?

    Kelleher/Martinez
    Poro/Gabriel/Doughty/Kerkez/Taylor
    Son/Saka/Madd/Bowen/Baily
    Watkins/Toney/Solanke

    Gameweek34 finishes for Liverpool on the evening of 24 April.

    So almost a month away, do you reckon that Alisson is back in goal by then?

    If so, would you go with Raya and Pickford in a BB double up?

    It's tempting to have Caoimhin Kelleher at his price but will he make it that far?

    1. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      I believe Klopp described it as a serious issue, with no timeline on his expected return.

      Doesn't sound like he'll be back by gw34 to me.

    2. Silecro
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 19 hours ago

      Supposedly he had another setback recently, Liverpool.com stated couple of days ago that injury is more serious than originally thought. I dont see him (Allison) playing GW34

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 19 hours ago

        Cheers

        Because otherwise I'd be going for Johnson with bgw34 in mind for that BB goalkeeper.

        Kelleher helps with budget but I've got around £2m + to play with but not enough for Son.

    No transfer, 1.6 itb

    Any suggestions?

    Dubravka

    HELP!!!!

    Team is a bit of a mess… no Salah, no Son, no money ITB, and no FH…

    Dubravka
    VVD Porro Gabriel
    Palmer(C) Richarlison Saka Foden
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    Areola; Bowen Walker Doughty

    What do I do?

    A - WC
    B - Take a -8 to get one of Salah or Son in
    C - Make one transfer to free up some cash for future transfers and pray that Salah and Son do nothing
