    Which 1 would you bench out of these?

    A - Muniz (shu)
    B - Toney (MUN)
    C - Foden (ARS)
    D - Gibbs-White (CRY)

      D

    2. EugeMurts

      D then C

    According to Jonty on the meet the manager videos, there is no such thing as luck when it comes to consistent FPL success.

      Are you lucky Virg?

      Or more unlucky...

      1. Philosopher's Stones

        He's neither lucky nor unlucky. He's just a virgin.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I kind of avoided the obvious...

          Have you got lucky yet line!

      It depends what you mean by FPL success. To win the thing (which is what Simon is talking about) you need luck. To be regularly top 10K is much more down to skill.

    Pickford Kelleher
    Gabriel White Gusto RAN Branthwaite
    Salah Saka Foden Palmer MacA
    Haaland Watkins Muniz

    £2.5m itb.

    Wildcard active, who should I switch up?

    Bench boost gw34 by adding some Palace players for Gusto and Muniz I guess, and just play into Spurs etc for gw37.

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I'd take Semeyon over Muniz. Has dgw34 and good fixtures.
      Darwin over Watkins too for same reason with MacA to Son

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Fit in Som

    3. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Son that is

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I'm thinking about it again but I'm in the classic Son or Saka trade off again.

        I could do it for gw30 but I'm subbing a 5th midfielder as it is.

        1. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          How about Son now and then switching to Saka later

          I'd bring C.Richards now to defend price rise

    4. EugeMurts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Downgrade one arsenal defender to upgrade MacA to Son

  4. Tonyawesome69

    Son ticking nicely over the IB... 2G in 2 games

    Thinking about taking hit(s) this week. My team:

    Neto
    Zabarniy/van de Ven/Mykolenko
    KDB/Gordon/Salah(c)/Palmer
    Solanke/Haaland/Muniz
    (Areola/Douglas Luiz/Doughty/Estupinan)

    Options:
    A. van de Ven and/or Doughty -> Porro and/or Gusto (if the latter is even fit)
    B. KDB -> Son

    Already spent my FT so looking at at possible -12 if I go for all of these. Advice?

  6. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    KDB to Salah for free this week?

    Dubravka
    Zabarnyi, Gabriel, Maguire
    Saka, KDB, Palmer, Garnacho
    Haaland, Watkins, Solanke

    Areola, Gordon, Kabore, Reguillon

    1 fT, 6,7 mill. in the bank

    1. tmstrand
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I say absolutely.

    2. Funkyav
      • 15 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      yes its an easy move that one.

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Cheers, building towards DGW 34 with only WC left. Hopefully, not more than one of Gabriel, Maguire and Saka will be out this week.

    4. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yes yes

  7. Philosopher's Stones

    Bottomed

    WC now or wait till 33? Only reason I'm looking to wait till 33 is cause I wanna hold onto spurs players till 33, then loose them and get them again on FH37. But the downside is I may need to take a couple hits between now and GW32 if I wait. And can't bench spurs in 34 as BB34 is the plan.

    Basically, WC now or wait till 32/33 in my scenario?

    1. EugeMurts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Don’t plan to take hits. Holding spurs may not be right decision. Hit the wildcard and bear the fruit over a longer period

  8. Rollercoaster

    Dubr
    Ake,Gomez,Gusto
    Son,Foden,Saka,Palmer
    Solanke,Haal,Watk

    Sanchez,Gordon,Gabby,Doughty

    Almost did Son to Salah -4 but rethinking now, wise?

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      No
      Foden or Saka to z Salah

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I wouldn’t for a hit

  9. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Could Bowen Bailey to Palmer Salah -4 set me for the next two GWs without hitting the WC?

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

    1. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I like the move

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      No
      You'll need Haaland

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Why?

        1. Mozumbus
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Not having Haaland in 2 straight games is not worth the risk

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      When would you play it if not? I am in a similar boat and was going to do Palmer/Salah for a hit. But given I will FH34 I kind of don't see a value in not playing the WC now. The only reason I would save it is if you were loading up on 4-6 City & Arsenal players and wanted to avoid being too heavily invested in that game.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah FH34 seems the way to go! I've been thinking that apart from the def, the team seems to be good so maybe to get some more info could make me postpone WC for 2 weeks, or leaving Haaland aside until GW32?

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I am mixed on the Haaland issue. I don't think he is worth the cost, but at the same time, a decent WC without Haaland has me with more than £4m to spare. So kinda feels like I might as well...

  10. Warby84
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Anyone without WC going without Haaland and relying on Son Salah Saka? I’m tempted to ride it out..

    1. Firmino
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I'll bring Haaland in for GW33.

    2. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I just realised I can go Watkins to Haaland next week and have all 4

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Is he worth £14m? Not at the moment. Its just that he probably will haul a few more times this season and those will hurt. There is also the issue that it is tough to get him in without a WC so it doesn't feel like the kind of decision that you can easily reverse.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Is he actually expensive? Does he block anyone else important? Trent and Trippier perhaps.

  11. Firmino
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Would you bring in Darwin or Isak? FH34 and BB37

    Darwin - BRI, SHU, CRY, whu, TOT, avl, WOL
    Isak - WHU, EVE, TOT, SHU, bur, BHA&mun, bre

    I will bench both in GW32 (mun and ful).

    1. zon
      • 9 Years

      Isak

  12. Hurnt
    • 10 Years

    Planning too far ahead?

    Dub
    Tarkowski Zabarnyi Porro
    Saka Foden Palmer Gordon
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    Areola Tavernier Gabriel Estupinan

    6.4 itb 1ft

    Gw30 Tav to Son bench saka free
    Gw31 Watkins Foden to Salah Cunha/Semeydo -4
    Gw32 save
    Gw33 son Gordon to Diaz Havertz free
    Gw34 haaland to Nunez free

    Gives me 10 players with double gw34

    Dub
    Gab Zab Tark
    Salah Diaz Saka Havertz
    Nunez Solanke Cunha/Semeydo

    Are Palmer Porro Estup

    Then wc gw35 or gw36 to bb gw37

    Any obvious flaws in this plan? Better suggestions appreciated

    Who's everyone captaining in GW30? Salah, Son or Palmer?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yes. One of those three.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Salah

    3. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Salah

    4. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      On Palmer currently.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Son

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Son

    6. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Salah

    7. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Bussed on Son but Palmer is close.

    8. Mother Farke
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Son worries me as a (C) as there's occasions he doesn't turn up, especially at home. Whereas Salah at home consistently looks a threat.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Nah that's fair. But I can't get to Salah reasonably this week so I'm gonna go with this and hope it works out.

          Might switch to Palmer who I feel deserves to be in the captaincy shout. Let's see how he does tonight for England.

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          That would normally be the case, but I expect Luton to play gungho(?) and not park the double-decker.

      • The Tonberry
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Son but only because I don't have Salah. But if I had all 3 then Salah

          Yes, I agree. But to win in fpl some kind of X-factor in playing the game might be necessary. Playing well is naturally important and necessary to "give luck a chance".

      • g40steve
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        No FH only BB & WC, hold?

        Cap Salah, Palmer or Son?

        Neto
        Gabriel, Burn, Gusto
        Saka, Palmer, Son, Salah
        Watkins, Haaland, Solanke

        Flekken, Gordon, Ake, Doughty

        .3

        1. The Tonberry
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Captain Salah.

            I'd also start Gordon considering he's returned in all but one of Newcastle's home PL games this season. Would drop Saka or Solanke to start Gordon

            • 11 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Only got WC + BB left. No Son. Can I go without him til GW35 wildcard or do I bring him in instead of Salah? Planning on doing Doughty + KDB to Salah + Gusto/Branthwaite -4pts

                It's the just the home games against Luton and Forest in 30 and 32 where Son would really be needed. He's an excellent captaincy shout for both games. But I'd rather have Salah over Son and you could go without Son until you wildcard if it means having Salah

              • 11 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              YES or NO

              Richarlison to Salah
              and
              Watkins to Muniz

              (would be a -4, I am wildcarding in GW35)

              1. The Tonberry
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Probably not as Rich and Watkins have good fixtures this week.

                  Can you get to Salah in GW31, preferably without a hit? Even if you did take a hit in 31 it would still be a better play than taking a hit this week

                Wildcard time ? ideally wanna save my WC for gw 35/36 as close as possible to BB in gw 37. Could get Haaland for a hit next week
