      You only had one job to do - score at least 15 points! 😉

        Or 14 and not be lagging!

        I came second once a decade or so ago, tis surely worth a wildcard!

          The rules are clear on this Rusty -

          "Those who did manage to progress will join three previous winners, and any previous runners-up who aren't tightwads and have paid for membership, who, by registering, received a bye into the first round."

            Pretty sure I would have won it. Currently ranked 57k and I don’t think anyone can beat that!

    Second toughest draw but way to early to make transfers with Members Cup in mind, right?

      Will your opponent WC?

        Good point, he didn't FH29 so good chance he will WC30/31.

  4. Atimis

    WC now and FH34?
    Or get Salah and Palmer -4, wait one more week/longer with WC?

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

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Just bring the WC forward to 30 if the - 4 is your planned move this GW

    2. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      i think both situations could work out very similarly if your gw30 team players score as they should.

    3. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Get Salah, take a hit, save WC

    4. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Essentially is it worth saving the WC for now with this team?

      1. Evil Greg
        • 14 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I've done the Salah and Palmer -4.

    There was mention FPL Harry posted on YT live stream that Saka was out for 3 months. This was posted by someone impersonating him.

    Saka has been carrying an injury for a long time and should be fine for City.

    Afternoon all,

    Any glaring issues or recommended transfers for this week?
    1FT £1.1 ITB

    Dubruv (Turner)
    Porro Zabarnyi Ake (Gab Saliba)
    Saka Son Foden Palmer (Neto)
    Watkins Haaland Solanke

      Depends on what chips you have left.

      GK spot and Neto injury stands out

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Salah the glaring issue.

      That and your dodgy keepers but perhaps Newcastle are back on song at home.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        "Newcastle are back on song at home." - are you basing this on the 3-0 win against a depleted Wolves attack?

        No Botman and still relying on Dubravka is an issue for Newcastle defence imo

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

          It was a question really with the perhaps...

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps....

              • 14 Years

              been watching Coupling?

  7. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Looking at the fixtures over the next 7 games, would you prefer to have Foden or Maddison?

    Even ignoring the blank in gw34 up until gw36 it looks to me that Man City have far the best run.

    That takes into account Arsenal and Luton up next.

    What am I not seeing and what am I blinded by?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Busy April schedule for City. Luton sandwiched between Real Madrid UCL games

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

        So he could be rotated but 8 can afford to bench one decent attacking player.

        The better teams will be busier by definition.

    Neto (Turner)
    Saliba Gabriel Branthwaite (Coufal Estu)
    Saka Son Palmer Foden (DougLuiz)
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    1FT 1.8 ITB

    How on earth am I supposed to get Salah into this team? Would need to sell Haaland or Saka or Son, which I don't want to to

    1. Zeeshz
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Probably have to lose Foden and Watkins then, unfortunately. Foden to Salah and Watkins to Muniz/Semenyo/Mateta perhaps

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Foden
      Don't lose Haaland

  9. Tsparkes10
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    A) KDB to Salah
    B) Saka, Watkins to Salah, Nunez (-4)?

    1. Zeeshz
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A

    2. Mozumbus

      A easy

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years

      - KDB injured
      - Saka plays Luton in 32

    Those who have used their WC already, are you opening towards Fh34 / BB 37 or BB34 / FH 37

    Whilst I think the former seems more popular I wonder if the latter is best given end of season rotation for clubs with nothing to play for?

    1. Davemc23
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      FH 34 makes the most sense imo. I've brought forward the WC to this week after the fixture announcement. I figure free transfers can sort out any issues that arise for BB37, e.g - pope return to fitness

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      The challenge is the teams that double in 34 are different to 35/36 and 37.

    3. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I played GW28 WC. Situation is easy for me. FH34/BB37 based on current squad. If I was playing WC now I’d still favour that I think…marginally

  11. Tsparkes10
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Those with BB and wc left... Is the main consensus to dead end to 34 with 11 doublers... WC in 35 and BB in 37?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Depends on your team. Assuming FH29, you should be able to DE34/WC35/BB37

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yup 🙂 cheers

    Who to start this week?

    A. Muniz (shu)

    B. Garnacho (bre)

      A

  13. Firminooooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Any suggestions on my WC? FH GW34 and BB37. 0.6 itb.

    Ederson Petrovic
    Porro Lacelles Gusto VanHecke Gabriel
    Salah Son Richarlison Palmer Gordon
    Isak Darwin Håland

    Will go for 15 DGW players in GW37. Probably Gabriel to Estupinan if nailed, Salah to Foden/KdB and Darwin to Højlund.

    1. Davemc23
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Looks good. I have done similar but got foden and saka to your rich and Gordon. I'm going for a cheap 3rd striker and will just get Darwin for FH and upgrade 3rd striker for BB37

      1. Firminooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks

  14. how now brown cow

    With 0.1 to spare, is kdb to Salah sensible if mo doesn't get crocked tomorrow?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      He's not playing tomorrow

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Salah was omitted from Egypt squad

      1. how now brown cow

        Thanks both. That helps!

    3. Davemc23

      Easy yes

  15. marpy016
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years

    Thoughts on WC, for FH34 and BB37:

    Areola - Petrovic
    Gabriel - Gusto - Branthwaite - Udogie - Stones
    Salah - Saka - Son - Havertz - Palmer
    Haaland - Darwin - Muniz

  16. Tsparkes10
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    1) Start Saka or Garnacho?

    2) Palmer or Salah captain?

  17. JONALDINHO
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Why are people so dead set on FH34 BB37 over BB34 FH37?

    1. aapoman
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Teams doubling on 34 are worse than the ones on 37. Also if you WC before 34 you will struggle to get a good dgw team for 37

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I meant if you WC for BB34 then it will be difficult to cut out all the players who don't double in 37

        1. JONALDINHO
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          But you just FH them out in 37? I was looking at a BB37 draft but there’s so many risks. Petrovic could lose his place, Chelsea defence is constantly changing, Van Hecke could be dropped, Isak could be injured, Garnacho too. So much can happen in those 7 weeks. Rotation aswell. BB34 just seems so much more nailed and stronger. Can keep Pool + Arsenal players for run in over United/Chelsea/Spurs

      2. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Doesn't matter if they're better or worse teams. Players points potential in gameweeks should be a criteria to consider.

    2. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Easier to plan over a longer period of time due to the amount of FT.

      Can completely ignore the blank and double in 34 by using the FH.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      All team dependant. Likely easier for folks to ignore 34 with FH and use FTs between 30-33 and 35-37.

  18. aapoman
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC draft? FH34 and BB

    Onana Petrovic
    Dalot Porro Gusto Lascelles AitNouri(or any max 4.6 def)
    Salah Son Saka Richarlison Palmer
    Haaland Isak Muniz

    Main thinking is if Darwin + Garnacho is better than Richalison + Muniz.

    1. JONALDINHO
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Darwin + Garnacho the better option

    2. MARVELLUS
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Looks good, lacking an Ars defender. Not far off mine, I have done Darwin and Garn option.

  19. Know_fpl

  20. GreennRed

  21. Bob B
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    FH 34, WC 35, BB 37

    What are your thoughts?

    If I was to WC now, the only advantages I see are:
    Owning Haaland for (ARS, AVL)
    Chelsea defence & GK
    Darwin

    The "sacrifices" I'm making are by playing:
    Watkins (WOL) then moving to Cunha (bur, WHM, NFO)
    Toney (MUN, BHA) then moving to Haaland (cpl, LUT)
    Raya & Aké

    1. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      The team:

      Raya
      Porro Moreno Aké
      Salah Saka Maddison Son Palmer
      Watkins Toney
      (Kaminski Morris Reguilon Doughty)

    2. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      FH 34 WC35 should be for anyone who likes their team enough this week, or perhaps with a -4.

  22. Zeeshz
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Seeing a lot of posts fretting over GW37's rotation risks. Imo, that fear seems a little overblown, largely driven by PTSD from similar occurrences in seasons past (I have had my fair share of disappointments too!). Some points:

    1. For starters, at most only one (Man City) of the 6 doublers that week could be active in European competition by then. Chelsea and Spurs haven't had any European football this season, while Man Utd and Newcastle haven't had to worry about European games in the 2nd part of the season. Less miles in the legs, less need for rotation. (Brighton's assets are always rotation risks, regardless of context.)

    2. Both Ten Hag and Howe are notorious for not rotating at all unless forced by injuries. Plus, the potential threat over their jobs would push them (and Poch) to finish the season as strongly as possible. So, that's 3 teams - Man Utd, Newcastle and Chelsea - who have too much at stake in those games for casual rotation regardless of where their seasons are at that point.

    3. Ange's job should be safe even if we (Spurs) are not in European competition next season. But considering where we are in the table, the only way we're on the beach come GW37 is if we seal the 4th spot before then, or if Man Utd overtake us and 5th is way out of reach. The first condition would require a complete collapse from Villa (whose remaining fixtures aren't great) *and* consistent performances from Spurs (whose remaining fixtures are worse than Villa's) - neither of which is particularly likely. The second condition would require Man Utd stringing together a big sequence of wins, while we maintain the level of our performance against Fulham in the remaining games. (Spoiler: Both are very unlikely).

    4. With there being a three-way fight for the title, the chances of the title being settled before GW37 seem pretty remote. At worst, one of the three may have lost too much ground (but with City having by far the best run of fixtures and a history of staying alive in tight races, it is quite unlikely to be them). And considering that we are their bogey team, I'm sure Pep wouldn't risk making too many changes. (He might drop a surprise or two in the Fulham game, but they have been a thorn in the flesh for the big teams at home, so who knows!).

    In all, I count 4 doubling teams that'll very likely play their best teams and a 5th with plenty at stake to make wholesale changes. If you consider the fact that noted rotation-phobes like Dyche has his team playing Sheffield Utd at home, there's enough to get a more than decent BB team, imo.

    Would love to know your thoughts for/against these points. Cheers, all!

      It's 7 weeks away. There'll be thousands of variables real and imagined before GW37. You're gonna get pre Traumatic Stress Disorder overthinking it. Put your hands away from the screen and enjoy the few days off until Friday and some team news.

  23. MARVELLUS
    • 14 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Hmmm Van Der Ven may be fit for LUT. Maybe a cheaper option in their defense if needed? I guess a gamble as he seems to get injured a fair bit......

  24. Somnus

    I love the Projections section of the members area, but is there a way to limit the view to only see the next 4 weeks instead of 6? I plan to FH in 34 so the Projections including this number are skewing my list....

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years

      There is on the Rate My Team tab, which is effectively just the Projections rebadged. Under 'Last Gameweek', you can select a different end point.

  25. Jet5605
    • 9 Years

    Still have WC, BB and FH. Any thoughts on when I should play them? Feels like my squad isn't in such bad shape

    Areola
    Gabriel - Gusto - Konsa
    Son - Rich - Foden - Palmer - Saka
    Haaland - Watkins

    Raya - Branthwaite - Morris - Doughty

    1. Jet5605
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      How's this strategy?

      GW30 - Roll
      GW31 - Son > Salah
      GW33 & 34 - WC & BB
      GW37 - FH

      Areola
      Gabriel - Gusto - Konsa
      Son (c) - Rich - Foden - Palmer - Saka
      Haaland - Watkins

      Raya - Branthwaite - Morris - Doughty

    Not sure how failed to make cup draw ( confirmed registration) with net score of 20 in 29

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years

      No such worries for me.

      I had a nett score of 8, so no need to bother checking in my case!!

      Yeah I can't find you on the fixtures. Email support@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk with your cup entry ID

        Can't find you any of the qualifying scores (even the ones who didn't make the cut) or the initial entry list, Dunas. Did you enter after the closing time/date? Or maybe enter the wrong ID? As TM says above, email that address with any screenshots and we'll take a look.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I have sent e mail. I registered when article published on site but didn’t take screenshot of usual confirmation that appeared when clicked to enter

            You should have the confirmation email at least, Dunas? Could you forward that on, too (sorry if you have already)?

    If you're on WC and plan to BB37, which keepers are you going for?

    I usually like to keep them as cheap as possible but thinking Onana might be worth one spot

      I would get him if I was on a WC. Onana and Johnstone if I was Wcing.

      Not saying the best move, but currently got Petrovic and Kelleher.

      Can't see Sanchez coming in, Petro has the extra double over Onana and better fixtures up to GW34.

      Kelleher a big risk but would start 2 or the next 4. Prob won't be starting for GW37 - may try and get a difft keeper in for then (as I said not ideal, but none of the cheaper keepers look great for that week anyway). Johnstone injured at Palace.

        Should have mentioned budget is the main reason for Kelleher. Given I hopefully only need two keepers for one GW only not over thinking it.

        Yeah bargain options like kelleher would be my usual pick but I'd prob like 2 who double in 37 to save needing a GK transfer later.

        On Petro and Onana for now but none of the options seem that great tbh

        1. MARVELLUS

          I think Petro Onana would be the way I would go if I had the funds.

          How's your draft looking?

          Mine is
          Petro Kelleher
          Gabriel Gusto Lascelles Branth Udogie
          Saka Salah Son Palmer Garnacho
          Isak Darwin Haaland

          Assuming no injuries....

          1. NobodyF*cksWithTheJesus
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Quite unfinished tbh but with a few questions marks it's

            Onana Petro
            Gab Gusto Lascelles ? ?
            Salah Saka Palmer Son Rich
            Haaland Isak Muniz

            Rich is bit of a placeholder, had for a while but not decided what to do with that spot yet.

            Last two defs will be cheap 37 doublers e.g. Maguire and will prob look to get Udogie too

            1. MARVELLUS

              Unsure on Maguire just because Martinez may be back, keep an eye on that.

                Good point. Cheers!

      Should have said I'll FH34 so not really looking at that double

    Would you start Garnacho over Saka this GW if chasing?

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not in any GW.

      Yes

    Only Premium members qualify for the cup.

    I wonder why I am not in it then?

        Thank you for clarifying.

    what main players are everyone targeting for DGW34?

    also why do I see Newcastle players in lots of WCs when they don't double at all?

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Newcastle have postponed GW34 fixture against Man United to be rearranged, likely in 37. Good fixture run for Newcastle attackers Isak /Gordon

      They'll likely be the ones on the GW30 WC, GW34 FH + GW37 BB strategy

      These content creators seem to be pushing Newcastle players now for the BB in 37. Think it's a bit early to be doing that.

        Its ok, teams will rotate in 37, wasting yet another chip with overthinking
