    On WC

    a) Gordon/foden
    b) Darwin/Solanke/Watkins

    Rest of the team is painfully template:

    kelleher, Pickford
    Lascelles, gusto, Gabriel, ait-nouri, udogie
    Saka, salah, son, palmer
    Muniz, haaland

    Can’t bring myself to go without haaland.

      Anything ITB to do Kelleher to Allison or another GK in a few weeks?

      1. meechamspowders
        • 13 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah will have roughly 2.5m ish itb so plenty of room for manoeuvre.

      Foden and Darwin.Why do you have Ait Nouri?FH on gw37?

      1. meechamspowders

        2 months, 24 days ago

        Don’t have my FH unfortunately, it was foolishly activated in gw29.

        1. wulfrunian
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I see,that's why the Ait Nouri pick.I see him in many wc drafts and i can't understand the reason for someone who is planning to FH in gw34.

            Although I have changed him to Zabarnyi now! Nicer fixtures and a better DGW I feel

            He's got good fixtures in gw31-33.

            And pretty good in gw34, 35 and 37 too.

      You've got to laugh looking back at this.

      It sums up the season, clean sheet wise!

      I see a sea of green, red crosses too
      I see them fail for me and you
      And I think to myself
      What a waste of a FH

        2 months, 24 days ago

        Nice, even got the tune going in my head while reading it lol

        Wasn't a waste of a FH for me as I would have only had I think it was 4 players (could even have been as bad as 3) so whatever my FH team scored, even in a 'bad' week, it was definitely going to be more than my original team 😀

        Also, by going FH29 it allowed for me to get Saka in GW26 who scored a 10 pointer (followed by a 7 and then 2). Lots of people look at playing the FH as a SGW play, but for me it also helped me in the weeks running up to BGW29 too 🙂

        All team dependent innit 😉

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I had 4 or 5 playing so went with the FH as I like most of my team, well the first 10 or so. Would do it again.

      This does not help with my dilemma on Udogie vs Robinson this week

    Sorry, yes, Areola is the second keeper

    1. Sheffield Wednesday

      OK then

  4. AC/DC AFC

    Who would you start out of Alexis Mac Allister and Saka this weekend?

    1. Andrew D48
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I’d be tempted by McAllister great differential against his former wide open defence and Dunk apparently had a mare for England

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah,

        As much as I'm up for playing Saka at Man City I think it's gotta be MacA.

        1. Andrew D48
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I haven’t got Mac so I am playing Saka hopefully city defence has injuries

  5. Silecro
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Assuming that Kelleher will not start GW34 double, is it worth transfering him out if your other GK is Neto, who also has a double?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I'm not sure you can assume that just now.

      I think those getting him in are rather hoping that he's still playing next month.

      What do you reckon?

    2. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      May as well hang on for now. Kelleher may still be playing in gw34 and Liv double is better than Bou. The only reason to sell now is because you need the Liv slot for someone else? Are you planning to BB?

  6. The Red Devil
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Thoughts on BB34 squad below? will WC outta it in 35.

    Sa/Pickford
    Bradley/Gabriel/Saliba/Branthwaite/Zabarnyi
    Neto/Saka/Foden/Salah/Eze
    Darwin/Solanke/Haaland

    Can reach here with a -8 from now till GW34

    1. Andrew D48
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I think Wolves Neto out for the season and Bradley may get rotated otherwise good

      1. The Red Devil
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Neto Bradley could be ait nouri and garnacho & sa becomes palace keeper

    2. The Tonberry
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Neto is out for a while and unlikely to be back for DGW34

        1. The Red Devil
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Sa Neto Bradley become palace keeper garnacho ait nouri
          Then?

    3. wulfrunian
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Is it worth to get a Man City defender on WC?FH in gw34 ,BB in gw37.

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I wouldn't. Ederson the only good option imo if you really want a City defensive player.

        1. shorey143
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I did that last season and he kept getting rotated at the end of last season. Depends when they get the title wrapped up

      2. XX SMICER XX
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Rotation will be frustrating.
        Could see Gvardiol getting fair few minutes though as a punt

    4. aapoman
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Thoughts on this WC draft? 0.1itb at the moment. Might gain a few 0.1s more depending on price changes before deadline

      Onana Petrovic
      Saliba Udogie RAN Gusto Lascelles
      Salah Son Saka Palmer Garnacho
      Haaland Solanke Isak

      1. Steavn8k
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Looks GTG to me. Nice team. I like Gabriel better than Saliba though in terms of goal thread.

    5. Steavn8k
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      What are people´s thoughts of Luiz Diaz compared to Salah in expected points from round 30-34?

      1. The Ejiptian King
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        dont do it !

      2. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Nah. I might go there on FH34 but otherwise no

      3. XX SMICER XX
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Salah on pens and likely more nailed - he will more likely rested for Europa League games than Diaz

      What do you think is a decent score from your bench when playing a Bench Boost? The common reasoning is that you should play it on a DGW and get as many doublers as possible so a return of (4 x 2) x 2 points = 16 points should be the minimum. However this year the doubles don't look that great and I'm finding it hard to come up with a plan which allows you to have a strong bench. GW34 has better fixtures but you will need to get rid of your Spurs and Chelsea players beforehand (unless you want to bench boost your Chelsea players away at Arsenal) and in GW37 I can see there being rotation issues and very few clean sheets (remembering that on a BB nearly half of your team will be goalkeepers or defenders).

      With that in mind, I'm currently on a WC and now giving serious thought to playing the BB in GW31. Once I pick my strongest 11, the bench will look something like
      Sa (bur) Lascelles (EVE) Udogie (whu) and Muniz (nfo)

      Could totally backfire of course but if I can get maybe a clean sheet and an attacking return for a total of around 15 points I think that's a fairly decent score and certainly possible with that bench.

      Good idea or have I lost the plot?

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I'd be happy with a 15 point bench boost. People need to remember that BB is mostly for defensive players (1gk + usually 2 defenders + mid/fwd). I'm not against BB31 since it allows you to get it out of the way and just focus on strongest possible 11. However the possibility of a huge bench boost is always tempting.

        1. Little Frank
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah, getting it out of the way is a big plus. Otherwise can see myself taking hits to bring in something like a Brighton defender.

      2. Jönny
        • 15 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I posted about this yesterday. I actually worked out that I could end up with *more* total games between now and the end of the season by bench boosting 32 and benching Chelsea/Spurs players in 34.

        I think the key is not to look only at the week you play any given chip, but at what that strategy does to the weeks around it. As another example, my free hit last week was a disaster in isolation, but in the weeks running up to it I gained about 30 points on my mini league leaders by not having to worry about signing dross that played in 29.

        1. Little Frank
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Interesting read, thanks for that.

        2. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Agreed. I played FH last GW with how it effected the weeks around it more in mind than points gained in GW29 itself which was just 6 but I'm still glad I played the chip as I wouldn't have got the 5 green arrows in a row and massive rank decrease (almost 400%) in the 5GW that preceded it if I was using FTs to bring in players with a fixture in GW29.

      3. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        15-20 no more.

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Ah, 1520 was a great Tudor age, full of jousting, knighting and pheasants served by courtly types, but as you say, it is no more.

          1. The Knights Template

            T’was the year before that Fool of a Took Magellan landed on Mactan island and was quickly overcome by the Visayan secret weapon - damsels exposing themselves to his troops! Bye bye Magellan, the clanging codpieces ring through the ages!

      4. The Red Devil
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        BB is basically 3 defenders + 1 attacker, not a lot of points, probably why I'm leaning towards BB34 & WC35 to focus on XI players in last 3 weeks

      5. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I actually considered this line. I don't think it's that bad honestly.

        You get the BB out of the way and then you setup for the run-in without needing to care about it. The fixtures you get are quite strong for this week and those players have utility later as well.

    7. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Best trio to finish my WC (FH34 BB37)

      A. Porro Garnacho Isak
      B. Udogie Gordon Solanke

      Kelleher Petrovic
      Gabriel Gusto Lascelles Branthwaite XXX
      Salah Son Saka Palmer XXX
      Haaland Nunez XXX

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        That's a tough one. Think I'll slightly lean towards A. Thought about having Solanke over Nunez? I'm not 100% on Nunez just yet.

      2. Little Frank
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        A for me, B will give you a bit of a benching headache each week unless you just bench Solanke which seems expensive.

        1. XX SMICER XX
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Agree on benching headache, I would like bench the following

          30 - Saka
          31 - Palmer
          32 - tough
          33 - Solanke

      All this talk of gw34 and 37 etc

      ... when in reality the 3 games from this weekend to next weekend are likely to have far more impact on your overall season.

      That's 33 fixtures of points to get in 8/9 days for most.

      Better focus on the near term as well.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Or should I say 33 players.

        Anyhow gw30 - 32 is where the real action is at.

        Just like in real football, title challenges and promotion runs are either beefed up or lost over Easter.

      2. Andrew D48
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Absolutely and rotation going to play a part in second and third of them

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah

          Spurs could find it tough at West Ham and it looks prime for Arsenal on Wednesday and Liverpool on Thursday.

    9. EL tridente

      How is this WC looking?
      Will FH in 34 and BB in 37

      Ederson, Onana
      Van Dijk, White, Pedro Porro, Lascalles, Gusto
      Saka, Son, Foden, Palmer, Garnacho
      Haaland, Darwin, Solanke

      1. Sheffield Wednesday

        Proceed

    10. Ian Davis
      • 14 Years

      Bowen/Watkins > Salah/Muniz ?

    11. ran
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Estu to Lascelles
      Kudus to Lukic
      Foden to Salah

      All these for -8, do it or nah?

      1. Steavn8k
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Thinking about a very similar move to bring in Salah. Just Doug Luiz to Garnacho instead of your second, and I think I might do it.

    12. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      The TNT Sports Special midweek fixtures in the UK also favour those honing in on a BB34.

      Brilliant stuff.

      A beautiful sunny day after snow fall in the SW and Wales.

      Spring is springing and I'm going to shut up about chip plans.

      Everyone will do their thing anyhow.

      So, looking at scout picks, Palmer apparently is still playing for Man City

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        You're right, he's looking a little pale.

      Anyone make head or tail about this story about Kerkez

      https://x.com/bmthechosport/status/1773219108278145522?s=46&t=hAaaEgiQgheuiwBruEyFyw

      He’s been confirmed as young and needing to learn. It feels odd that he’s considered not ready to play for Bournemouth but sought after by bigger clubs. Is ‘needing to learn’ code for being dropped because he’s pissed off about him putting exciting transfers above his team?

      1. Silecro
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Kerkez over Zabarny in 29, what a kick in the nut has that been...

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        It's like a lot of organisations devaluing the internal staff and favouring the external 'talent'.

        It's the way of the world that many people place a higher value on what they don't have.

          I agree, I’ve seen this so many this so many times. And in Kerkez’s case, I wouldn’t think he’s shown enough yet to demonstrate he’s going to hold down a first team place at Utd or Chelsea. But what do I know.

    20. Atimis

      Have to bench one:

      1) Toney
      2) Watkins
      3) Saka
      4) Solanke

      Or could play all but really want to bring both Salah and Palmer, thoughts?

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Toney

      2. Biggsy

        • 9 Years

        If Martinez is back (not sure he will be) then 1. Otherwise 3 or 4 - really depends on your thoughts on how Arsenal will do

      3. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Been between 1 and 3 mostly, Saka could do good with City's injuries but the same can be said about Toney at home...maybe avoid a hit for Palmer/Salah, just get one and start all 1-4?

        I have similar dilemma and I'm closer and closer to bench Saka, first game was really cagey, not much action until 75', hope this one will be the same.

        Your sofa to hide behind when Haaland plays?

        In all seriousness, I like it. I probably would avoid VVD - I think he's a bit too pricey for his upside. But I guess without Haaland you might as well spend the cash on him and he can always be easily downgraded. If I played WC, that would be at least 90% of my team I think.

        1. dshv
          • 6 Years

          Don't care abour Haaland anyway on 200k overall stucked so..

            If you see my other posts, I genuinely think no Haaland is a viable strategy. Personally, there are viable captains in your team through the next few weeks, so as long as they match Haaland (not unreasonable) and you can gain more points from that £6-£7m you're saving being distributed elsewhere then I would go for it.

            The caveat is that I am holding a WC so I can chicken out of the no-Haaland strategy the moment I get FOMO.

    22. Philosopher's Stones

      Sell one for Salah (the remaining two will start as well)

      A: Foden
      B: Saka
      C: Bowen

        • 10 Years

        Yes, Skonto knows.

    24. Biggsy

      2 months, 24 days ago

      I feel like my entire strategy comes down to Haaland. I don't have him, won't get him this week (getting Salah and Palmer) but probably need him at some point. Plan is to FH34 and BB37. Having had a good look at it, which strategy looks best?

      a. WC30 (saves a hit this week, can get Haaland, Salah and Palmer, long way to go to BB37)
      b. WC35 (no Haaland until WC although could have him on FH34)

      I don't think I would captain Haaland in 30-32 so feel confident that any hauls would be offset by having stronger options accross the rest of the pitch. However its that Luton game in 33 at the Etihad that worries me. Although it is sandwiched by the Real Madrid fixtures, so arguably could be ripe for rotation....

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I strongly favour wildcard now.

        It just makes more sense.

        Gw35 feels too late to me.

        I had flags and I hit it early and am trying to make some hay in gw30-33 too.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I know what you mean, but having planned my team for the coming weeks I feel pretty happy until 33, can FH in 34 and then play the WC.

          Given, even on a WC, I am not 100% on Haaland, I think the major delta would be in the forward line. I would have a Salah, Saka, Foden, Palmer, Son midfield so only need 2 forwards. Have Watkins and Toney (Morris benched) this week, can shift Watkins to Darwin next week (Morris still benched) - would then be ok keeping Darwin (YC pending) and Toney in 32 and 33. Maybe the only delta is I'd have Isak instead of Toney which isn't a nailed on benefit. Defensive line wouldn't be hugely different.

        Absolute rubbish, he’ll play and Luton will leave the Etihad with no less than five new fundaments!

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          As long as he doesn't leave with five goals I'll be happy

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Currently I don't think Pep has benched Haaland during a congested period. Likely a start but lower xMins if the game is over early.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I think it is somewhat clutching at the proverbial straws, but just because he plays doesn't mean other rotation/tiredness from a gruelling tie vs Real Madrid doesn't impact his output.

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Yup clutching. City rotate players and start the likes of Alvarez, Bobb, Grealish/Doku etc against the worst defence in the league

    25. FootballRookie
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Thoughts on this WC please ... Still have FH and BB

      Onana, Petrovic
      Gabriel, Udogie, Gusto, Lascelles, Bradley
      Salah, Son, Foden, Palmer, Odegaard
      Haaland, Isak, Muniz

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I'd worry you have two cheap defenders who are not as nailed as you want for their BB - and their cheapness makes it hard to do much with them. As much a I rate Muniz, I presume you bench him most weeks and when you BB in 34 or 37 he plays LIV and MCI respectively so feel like that is a booked transfer.

        Basically I think you are WC into some headaches, which become worse with some unexpected injuries - too much sacrifice for that strong 5 midfield plus Haaland (which is one of the reasons I am mulling over not going for Haaland)

      2. Zladan
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Don’t bother with Gabriel.

        The only time you’d use him between now and selling him is Luton (FH34 doesn’t count). It just forces an additional transfer. Why not just have Dalot/Ake/Van Hecke now?

        I like the Odegaard shout over Saka.

        I would advise you drop Foden to Richarlison and then switch Odegaard to Foden later on.

      Plan is to WC31.

      Which 2 players among this list would you start this GW?
      1) Palmer -4
      2) Salah -8 (need to downgrade one more player to get Salah)
      3) Saka
      4) Bowen
      5) Elanga

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        If you are set on WC31 then I would probably hold off on Salah (-8 not worth it if you can WC him next week).

        I think 1 is captain material this week, so i'd say him. I'd then play 3 over Bowen at Newcastle and anyone from Forest

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Don't like - 8 before WC unless you feel strongly it'll pay off in 1 GW.

        Palmer depends on if you have Son (C) already in your team.

      3. tommo-uk-
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Palmer & Bowen.

        -8 too much for Salah imo.
