    Son
    Salah
    Or Palmer

    .
    Going to be great later on seeing which one prospers the most.

    Virtually every team I've looked at in my mini leagues has all 3, but of the couple where I'm second and third in another there's a different selection for most of us in the top spots.

    It's going to be a Sunday where the captain choices count.

    ... hopefully!

    Need to match Haaland first of all.

      Captained Haaland here and have Palmer and Salah but not Son. 🙁

      Wake me up when September ends.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 11 days ago

        You've made your bed ...

        Now you'll have to ...

        😉

      Feeling OK with my Haaland points itb. Have all 3 referred to above also

        You'd think one would haul

        One could blank

        And one do okay .... Salah?

        So is it a shoot out between Son and Palmer??

    3. yousunkmybattleship

      Praying for Salah haul

      1. Steamboat Willy Boly
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Same here but I can't see it happening. Despite captaining him. I'm fearing a missed pen

    Need to ditch Luiz, do you prefer Gordon or Garnacho as a replacement? I plan to FH in 34 and BB in 37.

    1. theodosios
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Garnacho

  3. Martin66
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    BB34? FH37

    2 FT available (Bring Eze in, transfer Kell out pending Beckers return in week 34)

    Kelleher Dubravaka

    Gabriel Saliba Ruben Gvardiol Branthwaite

    Salah Mcallister Son Palmer Saka

    Mateta Haaland Isak

    Thanks,

    1. sandman58
      • 5 Years

      Don't BB in 34
      Son has no game

      1. Martin66
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah that was my Son - Eze potential transfer.

        Still undecided to BB or not though.

        The Man U thread is the best thread over at the other place!

      the 2 most hated fan bases and managers in EPL

      1. Josh.E
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        2-2

      2. Eze Really?
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Hate is used far too often recently.

      3. Hooky
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Klopp isn't hated at all by the neutrals, quite the opposite. Don't think people care enough about ETH to hate him either! He is a rubbish manager though.

        1. Eze Really?
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          A much better way of putting it mate.
          And I am a Toffee!

        2. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years

          I know plenty of neutrals who hate Klopp for being a fake-nice sore loser

    5. Gudjohnsen

      1-4

  5. For Fuchs Sake
    • 14 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    I'm thinking a common strategy would be WC 33, BB 34? Am I missing something to not do this?

    1. Eze Really?
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Yep. Splitting your DGW's when 35 would allow a change in direction. Depends on current team though.

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A ideal DGW 34 team looks nothing like an ideal DGW 37 team, that's the only issue.

      You'll need to compromise to some degree, given you'll only have 3 FT's between the two DGW's.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        ... the dgw34 may offer you better players from the better teams challenging for the title, so could prove more fruitful overall.

  6. Hooky

    Can't imagine this Old Firm derby is going to be as tasty as past ones with only 3 Scottish players starting.

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      It's so diluted now, most of the songs they sing are banned as well. New laws in Scotland mean anything rude is a hate crime and they'll be arrested lol

    Anyone else feeling goal celebrations are becoming more and more childish?

    Tavanier doing the golf shot like JWP and Rogers inexplicably doing the shivering celebration like Palmer. It's so gormless. Nevermind the endless machine gunning the crowd (cringe), darts and bow and arrows.

    1. Hooky
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Is that you Alan Shearer?

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      Wissa doing the cold Palmer too.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Cole Palmer was doing it in a sign of respect or tribute to a former team mate too.

        They can do what they want in the moment.

      2. Ruinenlust
        • 6 Years

        Palmer the new face of the EPL

    3. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years

      People really won't be happy until this sport finally becomes a bunch of nerds measuring potentially offside toenails of emotionless robots.

    4. Ginkapo FPL

      Need more elaborate full team choreography

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        But for real, Siu is just the actions of a majorly insecure man. That seems childish to me

    5. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I feel like nearly all celebrations are cringey. I am partial to Kudus' "old man relaxing on a riverside bench" though.

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        A bit cringey when he was pestering a ball boy at SJP to use his stool.

        1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          True but how else can players now pester ballboys since they can't give them the ball any more? So sad we'll never see another Hazard incident, RIP football

    6. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No. Let them celebrate however they like. Do we need a best known method and VAR analysis for goal celebrations now?

    7. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 13 Years

      Yeah definitely prefer fewer characters and unusual actions in football, me

    8. Amsterhammer

      It’s been part of the game for a long time. Lee Sharpe doing the Elvis, Brazilian forward line at USA 94. Personally I wouldn’t overthink it.

    9. Hooky
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Giggs was doing the golf shot celebration back in the 90s so that's been around for ages. Robbie Fowler sniffing the white line - now that was a great celebration!

      1. Firminooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Hahaha. Loved the Robbie Fowler celebration.

      The more obnoxious the celebration in football, the more I dislike it.
      The more obnoxious the celebration in NFL, the more I enjoy it.
      I don't make the rules.

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Arguably, there's more skills used in an NFL celebration than the game in comparison to football. What do you think of one of it's new recruits from our amateur game, Charlie Smyth?

      Håland should do a flawless robotdance.

    14. SpaceCadet
      • 10 Years

      Everyone should celebrate like Balotelli

    15. The Mighty Hippo
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I prefer the Bobby Charlton celebration... a firm handshake then get on with the game like a good chap.

      1. marcus2704

        Waiting for one of these stupid pre-planned celebrations to be nullified by a reversed VAR decision.

    Keep Toney for Sheffield? Why he was benched yesterday?

    1. Ginkapo FPL

      For being useless

    2. SUPERMAN

        Don't lie

        1. SUPERMAN

          I have Toney and have no reason to lie…

    3. GreennRed

      He had 100K on him not to score yesterday.

      1. Warby84
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Haha wouldn’t surprise me

    4. Eze Really?
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A slight niggle but I think it was a form issue. Brentford want as much money as possible for him next window and that with considerable Tfr market deflation.

    5. Firminooooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      He had 10£ bet on Aston Villa win.

    6. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

      Giving him some bench practice for if he moves to Chelsea.

    With all chips left is this the best approach

    FH34
    WC35
    BB37
    TC 36 or 38.

    Thanks guys.

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years

      Depends on your team.

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yep, I think that's what I'd be doing with all chips left.

    How bad is alt nouri's injury?

    1. Ruinenlust
      • 6 Years

      Bad enough to prevent him playing another 5 mins

      “He’s got a sore calf. He’s got some pain in his calf and it was a big blow,” O’Neil said. “But we wanted to take him off before it got any worse and hopefully he’ll be ok for next week."

      O'Neill has previous for lies however, like when Neto could be back in 3 weeks and it was more like 8/9.

      1. Fantasy Vs Reality
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cheers. Fingers crossed! My DGW34 and WC35 planning is not going well with injuries so far!

    3. Goodfeathers

      Doesn’t sound too bad..

      “He’s got a sore calf. He’s got some pain in his calf and it was a big bow,” O’Neil said. “But we wanted to take him off before it got any worse and hopefully he’ll be ok for next week.”

  12. Rash

    Find myself a bit stuck.. 2FT and playing FH34 so need to use them really.

    Petrovic
    Bradley Gabriel Ait Nouri
    Salah foden palmer son Garnacho
    Haaland Darwin

    Onana Muniz Poro Gusto

    2ft 2.3itb

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A bit like my situation below. Garnacho to Gordon and Isak in? Spurs isn't best entry point, but could be ok for attackers. Luton gw35 is tempting though.

  13. Grande Tubarão
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Hate having to hope Liverpool destroy us as a massive Utd fan but I have Bradley, Nunez and Salah (C) today

    1. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Sounds like you’re more of a fan of FPL than you are of Man Utd..

    2. Eze Really?
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      You win both ways

    3. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      You're not a real fan thinking like that

    4. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      This blows my mind that you want FPL points more than your team to win a huge game.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I personally support my FPL team, but like Liverpool the most and even MU sometimes. Spurs, Gunners, and Che are often nice to watch. Something wrong with MCI, no soul or something.

      2. Derbz87
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Its huge in the sense there's a rivalry but not huge in the sense they aren't getting top 4 and Man Utd (fans) surely aren't bothered where they finish if its not top 4. I know when my own team gets to that on the beach stage I don't really care if we lose games beyond local rivals.

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          It's huge in the fact that we don't want them to win the league - we still have an outside chance of a CL spot too

      3. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        This fella is no more of a United fan than Gerrard is - he's a WUM

    5. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I don’t even consider myself a massive fan, but I could never captain a player against Liverpool, especially if we were playing United! I can just about tolerate starting a player against us if they have high EO (Haaland’s the obvious example), as you can ignore them and just focus on wanting your team to win

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        It's somewhat of a consolation though, especially when Liverpool (and Salah especially) have given out drubbings more often than not. Same as betting against your own team.

    6. Warblers
      • 8 Years

      Define "massive."

  14. Baps hunter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Neto/Areola
    Gabriel, Saliba, Porro, Gusto, Bradley
    Salah, Son, Palmer, Foden, Maddison*
    Haaland, Darwin, Muniz*

    1.7 million itb, 2 free transfers, FH34, BB37, WC? strategy. I can afford to get Isak and Gordon for M* + M*. But Maddison has dgw35. What do I do?

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Is WC36 an option?

  15. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
    • 8 Years

    Dubravka
    Udogie-Gabriel-Gvardiol
    Salah-Maddison-Saka-Foden-Palmer
    Darwin-Haaland

    Areola; Morris, Senesi, Kabore

    A) WC now for BB 34 (though it might cause problems for Spurs beg followed by dgw)
    B) use FT then FH 34, WC 35 BB 37

    Cheers guys.

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      C with WC38 is perhaps an option also. It's usually very high scoring gw and we will probably get leaks. I can see over 30 pts upside.

      1. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I see your point but I think the need to use the other 3 chips also means WC earlier is the way to go.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          My problem above^ is that I have 5 free transfers to make before BB. I also already have 5 dgw players for 35 and double MCI for 37. I can get double Newcastle now so they are ready for Luton and BB. WC36 is a possibility also, but playing Areola vs Luton on BB isn't out of the question. Petrovic for 35 is a strong possibility.

    Going to wildcard earlier next season as every year a late wildcard derails my team!

    GW29 FH
    GW30 talked myself into wildcarding Salah in a week early. Sold Foden & Odegaard, as they were playing each other, kept Watkins for Wolves and Brentford. Salah(c) all ok. Foden & Ode blanked.
    GW31 Salah(c) fail, Foden 3 goals, Ode 1
    GW32 doubts on Saka & Watkins. Decided to sell Watkins to get Ode back. Watkins scored 2, Ode blanks.

    If I'd done nothing my GW28 team would have produced me 6 goals to my wildcard team's 1!

      Selling attacking players just because they play each other makes no sense to me. 4-4 eith correct scorers and it's heaven!

        Yeah but I expected 0-0 1-1 so I was right on that count. I should have waited one week then it was plain that it would be Watkins out as he was injured.

        Yes, my issue is whether Maddison is a keep in his current form. But later tonight I will probably be wiser. Someone should score from his set pieces though.
