    Trippier would have been such a lovely differential in this game as well

    Last minute switch from Garnacho, Isak to Gordon, Solanke.

    I think it was the right choice. I think

    1. FantasyTony

      toss up really

        Yup. Been happy with Gordon this season. Lost some FPL money ditching him at the start of my wildcard

      Apparently Garnacho scores a hat trick tonight

        He would've been on my bench. It's inevitable 🙂

          It might not be true but it comes from a fairly reliable source

    Not sure if Lascelles should be playing on.

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah, he's off now

    Feel like Newcastle been quite unlucky with injuries this season

    1. FantasyTony
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Howe ran them into the ground last season

      1. panda07

        And this season when they were still in the UCL!

  5. Gizzachance
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Lascelles off

  6. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Newcastle medical team are incompetent to allow Lascelles continue on

    1. Utopsis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      100%. What were they thinking? He himself clearly didn't want to continue

    Emil Krafth is 4.4m btw

        (Have Newcastle got a ckean sheet in three months? Or is that not a relevant question?)

            I’m gonna end up with big dan burn for his goals and assists

          You know they will probably keep one today after you saying that, right?!

            Just in time for more people to make bad choices. Glorious

              2 months, 25 days ago

              In fairness though I don't think Lascelles, at 3.9m, who would remain on benches until 37 when he would double was a bad choice before he got injured.

              1. Ginkapo FPL
                • 12 Years
                2 months, 25 days ago

                Yeah the mistake isnt picking Lascelles, its thinking you can wildcard in a bench boost 37 team 7 weeks in advance.

                1. panda07
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 25 days ago

                  FT's can be used in the meantime and you're making the mistake of thinking that bench boosting in 37 was a major reason for wildcarding this week.

                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 25 days ago

                  It was more of a side benefit for me anyway.

      Probably won't play when Trippier is back.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Who plays alongside schar

        1. panda07
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Burn

        2. FPL Blow-In
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Burn and Hall or Livra or Barnes on the left is what I’d have thought

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Barnes left back! Not sure on that one

    3. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      He looks great at playing an offside line.

  8. Philosopher's Stones
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Think I might be able to hold my WC one more GW and do it in 32 instead.

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I'm biding my time a little longer, too. Wondering about player fitness after the international break...

  9. Zladan
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Lascelles off injured! Newcastle defence running out of options quickly!

  10. DandyDon
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Ah that’s more like it after the early Isak joy! Lascelles carrying an injury after 15 mins! only switched Dubravka to Henderson and Branthwaite to Lascelles this morning on my WC.

    1. DandyDon
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      At least he was on my bench this week

  11. Zladan
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Dan Burn is a comically bad defender.

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I wouldn't tell him that standing in his 6' 6" shadow.

  12. drughi
    • 14 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    lascelles was gonna warm the bench until gw 37 anyway, hope he can be back by then

    Antonio G

  14. Gizzachance

    Antonio goal

        sorry A

  15. FPL Blow-In
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    I’d have thought Burn would go CB and Hall would go LB. Kraft is a bit meh of a fpl pick

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Big Dan Burn bandwagon started yet 😉

  16. JBG
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Great assist by Paqueta and nicely finished by Antonio.

    I'm so happy this international break is over. Felt like 3 months long.

  17. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    As expected CS wipe out for both sides. Let's see who will get the most saves

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Or concedes more goals haha

  18. tricpic
    • 14 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Hilarious that people got Lascelles in for a GW37 BB. I’ve been saying all week it’s way too early to plan for that.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Nothing wrong with leaving cheap fodder on the bench and hoping to get lucky.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Exactly. He’s basically the cheapest defender you can get

    2. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Ha ha - rub it in!

    3. I Member

      2 months, 25 days ago

      The masses continue to follow awful chip strategy from the content creators. First FH29 in one of the worst GWs in FPL history and now BB37.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        When is best time to use bb? Don’t think there’s a “right” way and depends on team but bb37 looks the obvious bb to me

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          34 looks so much better than 37.

          1. tricpic
            • 14 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Agree. That’s my strategy. May be hiding behind sofa in 37.

          2. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            You’d need to wc out of it then

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Dont forget TCSolanke/Haaland

      3. Yes Ndidi
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        In what way is BB37 an awful chip strategy?

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          There's a strong possibility that most of those teams don't have anything to play for by the time we get to 37.

          1. tricpic
            • 14 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Exactly

    4. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I don’t mind it, never going to go exactly to plan but bb is a terrible chip. Worst thing is planning your wc purely to maximise bb.

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

        I like the BB because it makes people make suboptimal decisions in the short term.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Exactly what the problem is with the chip and I’m guilty of it as well

    5. Free Hat
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Bringing in a 3.9 playing defender on WC who has double.

      Yes, sounds like a pretty stupid move...

      1. tricpic
        • 14 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Who has double in seven weeks time…is the issue

        1. Free Hat
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          I dont think you fully understand the meaning of a WC then.
          Its there to set up your team for multiple weeks...

  19. SAKA AND EMILE SMITH ROWE
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Newcastle DF is dreadful, paying 3.9m for Lascelles feels expensive given their CS potential

  20. Gizzachance
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Come on Bowen, not another blank please!

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      This

  21. TheBiffas
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Get involved, Coufal!

    1. FantasyTony
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      He already did for the penalty

  22. KAPO KANE
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    No Bowen involvement typical

    1. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Hour left yet

  23. DARE TO BISCAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Investing in a depleted, already bad, Newcastle defence didn't seem like a good idea. Glad I skipped that one.

  24. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Still not convinced by Gordon.
    He doesn't offer a lot on the LW and takes too many shots, a bit like Sterling dare I say...

    1. tommo-uk-
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      In FPL or just in general?

      Brilliant asset in FPL, lots considering selling him and some already have…big mistake

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I rate him. I think he's good. He's a bit like Rashford except he has better work rate in defense. Rash might be a bit more technical but his decision making is similarly poor.

    3. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      He's a high energy, direct player. Got a bit of snide in him. Doesn't let up and seems pretty durable. He'd fit well in a Klopp team. Playing against LFC, he's a rat-faced so and so

    4. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      In FPL he is decent, for that very reason he takes a lot of shots.
      In footballing terms, that isn't so beneficial for the team.

      He has pace, but don't think he has has the natural ability to construct an attack when he receives the ball deep, nor in a forward position when he's expected to dribble past players.

      Gordon does score a few goals here and there, but when he doesn't it can be a detriment to the team.
      Same can't be said for Foden, Grealish, Palmer who play in a similar position.

  25. PogChamp
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    I got Lascelles and Schar in on WC for their fixtures but weirdly ended up benching both.

    1. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Handstand, using your big toe. Left foot?

  26. Berkshire Hafaway-Line
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    So nice not having to look at Dubravka stinking up my team page anymore

  27. Boss Hogg
    • 14 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Went for Lascelles on a wildcard…
    Oh well,no regrets. Hopefully he’ll be back for the double gameweek.
    I’ll need Gusto to keep starting games though.

  28. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Newcastle 3rd worst defence in the league this season and folks still went there

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Bargain bucket prices and a goal threat to boot. Decent bench warmers, double in 37, and good fixtures.
      Decent squad options.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        "good fixtures" is questionable from a defensive POV. Not sure the goal threat is as high as you hink

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Think*

        2. Boss Hogg
          • 14 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Oh yeah, don’t get me wrong, they are not GREAT options. But for the price, and as part of a planned squad to cover the fixtures until the end of the season, I think Burn, Livra, and Lascelles are all good choices.

    Quite remarkable how anonymous Bowen is when Antonio is there.
