    Morning all! Gordon or Bruno to bring in this week, all being well the other comes in the week after…..

    1. Shearer & Sutton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Bruno

    2. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I have got to bench one of them. Currently Bruno.

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Well at least I don’t have that issue. I guess Burnley have more to play for but then Palace can make things difficult. Well I have no idea

  4. CONNERS

    Garnacho owners - are you keeping for the double or upgrading to Bruno / KDB?

    Have 9.2 ITB and tempted with KDB as nobody in my ML owns him...

    1. afsr
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Same here. Can't go for KDB as i have 3 city, but Bruno is tempting

      Thing is Bruno has more routes to points which is why i'm thinking of upgrading. Then again saving a transfer this week, or at least not making a sideways one for a tough away game would be preferable

    2. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      But do you have Foden?

      My initial thoughts was to do Garnacho to Foden as I already have Bruno. But KDB also intrigues me

    3. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yeah, already own Foden.

      I have pretty much the same front 7 as the WC template, except Garnacho over Bruno and Muniz as my 3rd forward.

      I'll probably keep Muniz and play him in 38 vs Luton as a differential.

    4. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years

      That prof pic is scary...lol

  5. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 month, 22 days ago

    Is Garnacho to Bruno worth the transfer ( free)?

    1. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think it is provided you've no other priorities ahead of the double.

      Have you considered De Bruyne? I think he'll play every game with no CL or cup games until end the of season.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Thanks- yes also in consideration for third City place.

    2. Mumfie
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think Bruno is a better Fpl prospect, but Garnacho was unlucky to score yesterday.

  6. The Left Duke #3
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Every single person in my mini leagues that WC has the same front 8 (and more or less same GK/DF)

    Palmer (c) Son Foden Bruno Gordon
    Haaland Isak Jackson

    Is this what the game has come to, copy and paste content creators?? What’s the bloody point if you don’t take a punt or two ffs it’s pathetic. Bunch of sheep.

    Those that didn’t Capt Palmer and have a few differentials, I wish you well in the wars to come. Capt Son today…let’s go!!!

    1. Baines on Toast...

      personally I think the game was far better when the second WC was just confined to January.

      Having so many people finish the season with the same squad is just so dull, when this should be the time when there's more divergence. But the combination of second WC + DGWs has made the end the worst part of the season.

      1. The Left Duke #3
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        It really has. Personally I was 16.5k starting this GW (about 27k now) but have Son (C) Solanke and Saka today which is very exciting after seeing all my rivals have literally the same team.

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Same in mine too, hence why I'll probably go with KDB over Bruno.

      1. The Left Duke #3
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Dead right. You should (c) him next week as well

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Imma have both.

    3. Wild Rover
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      It’s nothing to do with content creators. I never watch or listen to any of them, but I have 7 of those, because they were pretty obvious picks.

      1. Fitzy.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Same here, 7/8, 8/8 by GW37. And I don't go near content creators either. This game isn't that hard that you need to be told obvious moves.

        1. Wild Rover
          • 13 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I’ll probably have 8 as well by 37. I’d like KDB, but will likely get Haaland, as I don’t want to lose any of those mids.

        2. The Left Duke #3
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I get it they are the obvious moves but it’s essentially a stalemate. Surely a KDB or Watkins or someone else is a better pick than Bruno or Jackson

        3. The Left Duke #3
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          But this game is supposed to be fun and if everyone is WC the same team in what’s the point. I would think a differential or two on a WC is essential to gain on the pack.

      2. Now I'm Panicking
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        People on here needed a new boogeyman after the hilarious whinging about Haaland's so-called price manipulation earlier this season.

        Tbf

        The articles on here including Scout Picks plays into the prevailing thinking.

        Including gw35 wildcards for obvious reasons.

        Engagement on the issues people are currently considering.

        It's pretty hard to avoid content creators views if you are on a fantasy football site.

        Unless you don't read the articles.

        But then all the rate my wildcard team is by and large the template thinking.

        1. The Left Duke #3
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Maybe I was harsh saying follow content creators but even if those picks I mentioned are pretty much the template how does anyone leading or chasing get an advantage. I guess leading is handy but even then I’d still like to improve my rank with at least one differential

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            You've got to purposely avoid the template.

            I did it on my FH for 3 or 4 picks and it worked tbf.

            1. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              So did I. Made the mistake of having Saka and Salah abd changing armband from Havertz to Eze. But at least I didn't C Salah 🙂 The template creates itself sometimes, pricing is one of the current problems. Now everyone can afford everyone. With higher prices people would be forced to make choices.

    4. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yeah, agree with WR. The front 7/8 almost pick themselves.

      I don't follow content creators, but would've thought they should be recommending some low-owned, anti-template picks at this stage of the season.

      1. Warby84
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Havertz and De Bruyne are the stand out differentials

        1. The Left Duke #3
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Currently have Solanke and Saka and Son(c)…Will captain Saka next week

    5. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Need Kane back and Salah firing to make it interesting again.

    6. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      That’s why I have kept Havertz as bit of differential

    7. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I only have 6. Does that make me maverick?

      1. The Left Duke #3
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yes my friend. You are a maverick and have my backing for what it’s worth lol

    8. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Anyone second or third should have waited to wildcard this week into differentials.

    9. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years

      I am happy to play against lots of people with Son Haaland and Jackson personally

      1. The Left Duke #3
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Me too especially Jackson. That pick made no sense to me

    10. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Remove all of the backups, DMs, youth and injured players and 80% of the players in the league are irrelevant for FPL.
      Remove all of the crap teams - Sheff Utd, Burnley, Luton, Forest - and that number jumps to about 90%
      Remove all of teams who don't have doubles and that number jumps to about 95%
      Congrats - you are left with a tiny pool of 2 or 3 players from 6 or 7 teams.

      1. The Left Duke #3
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Jackson is a prime example of following the herd. He’s a shocking pick.

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Yeah same as Darwin the week before. Double donkeydom.

    11. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Tbf - after a failed FH29, I set up for BB34, jumped to 100K, had pool and wolves rubbish to clean up - took a - 12 but stayed clear of Spurs DGW trap.

      Now I have no Son, no Haaland, no Gordon, no Jackson and a huge case of FOMO.

  7. Warby84

    Had C on Isak all week but bottled it, sums up the season

      Be brave these concluding GWs and you will restore your self respect and dignity! In the meantime though:

    2. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I also bottled that. Probably didn't think about it enough though.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I thought about Isak for a bit and was playing Pickford earlier on, but I probably spent too long on here during the week!

      Still, Palmer might pop on Thursday.

    Does anyone know what Haaland had been messaging his dad and bro etc today?

    1. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Lonely Planet Madrid

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Think that means he starts

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Yeah

          I just thought that too

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Most active Haaland owners have benched him but probably more overall that have him set and forget.
