    'Mateta now faces Man United, whose expected goals conceded (xGC) ratio is ooor: only Sheffield United, Luton, Burnley and West Ham rank worse across the league'.

    New word, I wonder what it means.

      Typo, was meant to be 'oo-er'

        haha.

    Pickford
    Gabriel Burn Walker
    Palmer Foden Gordon Bruno
    Haaland Watkins Isak

    Petrovic Son Maguire Romero

    All ok to roll a transfer here?
    Captain Watkins or Isak?
    Bench Son or Gordon?

      I'm currently benching Gordon. Away form isn't good.

    2. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Looks good.

      Would play Son over Gordon probably

      Captain Watkins over Isak IMO

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Play Son.

    Gvardiol or Walker?

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Gvardiol looks a better pick but that could be recency bias. Also slightly cheaper. Maybe go Walker if you don't need the money want to be different as they are both basically wingers

    2. Camzy

      I have been impressed by Gvardiol's attacking threat when I've watched him. Walker has never really impressed me as an attacking outlet. He gets into the right positions but his final ball and his shooting aren't really his strong suits.

      Gvardiol guns for goal more and can shoot on both feet. He scored a goal from outside the box with his weak foot. The fact he even tried it made me think he's going to put himself in positions to score more often.

      1. Tarby
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        In 2 of his last 3 games he's not taken a single shot.
        3 of his last 4 shots on target have been goals.
        His 2 right footed goals have had xG's of 0.03 and 0.08.

        Basically he's been lucky recently, in all likelihood he doesn't score again this season.

    1FT, 4.0 ITB, BB37, thoughts?

    Raya / Petrovic
    Schar / Burn / Gusto / Van Hecke / Bradley
    KDB / Son / Saka / Palmer / Garnacho
    Haaland / Isak / Hojlund

    Going to be a -4 for two defenders, which two?
    Gvardiol (would block me out of Foden)
    White
    Dunk
    Dalot.

    1. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Really not keen on Brighton or United defence due to the difficulty of their doubles. They'll almost certainly concede in both.

      I'd get White plus an Everton defender, and Foden over a City def.

      1. Bucket Man
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Agree with this.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'd go Gvardiol. It's a risk sure, but it balances your BB much better by replacing your weakest players rather than shuffling around the attack.

  5. Camzy

    Hugely different scout squads is very interesting.

    I like Neale going triple Palace. No goalkeeper consensus at all, very few KdB. Seems there are still plenty of opportunities out there. And yet this might be the strongest template attack we've seen all season.

    It feels like 75% of people have the same front 8 on WC35. And those not on WC35 are trying to move towards it. This is one of those weeks where no one wants to go against the grain and their strategy is locked in already.

    1. Evil Greg
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I brought in Havertz this week (no BB37)

    2. Sun God Nika
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Im quite looking to this gw, arsenal midfielders seem to be a differential against WC35ers

    Sky say that all four of today's press conferences are scheduled for 1.30pm BST: Nuno, Edwards, Kompany + ten Hag.

    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Thanks Neale, will be hoping to hear something positive on Shaw with a view to punting on Højlund on FH37

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Højlund, really? Why not go for someone with an xG greater than 0.01?

        1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          He's not getting supplied with the ball very much (or at all) at the minute, the last time Shaw was in the side it was quite different

    2. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      The Virg-Meister-General had provide the troops with this info at 7:30am. No lie in here!

  7. Bucket Man
    • 5 Years

    6.6ITB . Sensible to roll the FT? with BB next week and 3 main issues.

    Garnacho to Bruno or Darwin to Watkins mighty tempting though

    Petrovic
    Gabriel, Gvardiol, Gusto*
    Son, Foden, Palmer, Gordon, Garnacho
    Haaland, Isak
    Onana, Darwin*, Porro, Van Hecke*

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Roll.

      1. Bucket Man
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thank you.

  8. Botman and Robben
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Bench choice and order looks OK?

    Petrovic
    Walker Burn Porro
    Bruno Gordon Saka Palmer Foden
    Isak Haaland

    Onana Jackson Dalot Van Hecke

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'd play Jackson over Gordon. With Newcastle's away form, one attacker is enough.

  9. SpaceCadet
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Who gets more points in gws 36 and 38?

    A. Gordon ( bur, bre) both away
    B. Kdb -4 ( wol, whu) both home

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      B

  10. Phil's Stamps
    • 13 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I'm on a WC and think Onana (save points) is a fair pick for one GK slot, but for the second I'm struggling to look past Raya, who I think gets at least two clean sheets over the next three.

    I think with the Ederson situation you can't choose either city keeper.

    Chelsea are a mess, I'm not confident of any clean sheets despite the ok fuxtures plus the Sanchez threat for Petrovic.

    Spurs are even worse at the back, and their best fixture is against Burnley who are in their best form of the season and will attack, so Vicario is out.

    The Raya pick feels super Conservative on a WC but perhaps the most sensible.

    Thoughts?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I wouldn't pick Raya because the outfield options for Arsenal are stronger.

      Pick a doubler, go for save points I think is the line.

      You can get Arsenal defenders instead.

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 13 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I've got White on my WC then BB and the template eight attackers. Will bring in Saka for Gordon in 38.

  11. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Just out of interest, do the scout picks ever end up matching the Bus Team player for player?

    Would be good to see that assessed over the season. You know. For fun

  12. lilmessipran
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    This season has been so ridiculous in terms of injuries..Even a dullard fpl manager like me has taken a hit every other week just to field 11 starting players.

  13. salahlikeswings
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Start

    A - Mateta
    B - Gordon

    Thanks

    1. salahlikeswings
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Also start

      1 - Burn
      2 - Branthwaite

      Thanks

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 13 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Genuine coin toss between those two. Maybe Branthwaite?

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Mateta

    3. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A

    4. Woutiraldi
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A2

  14. Malkmus
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    A'noon all. GTG? 1FT, 2.3 ITB

    Raya (Petro)
    Walker - Schar - Gabriel
    Son - Palmer - Foden (c) - Gordon
    Haaland - Jackson - Isak

    Subs - Bruno, Porro, Maguire

    Foden right as cap?

    Ta

    1. mrelpea
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I’d be tempted to play Bruno over Gordon, but not much in it tbh

      Foden is ballsy given he missed last game, but great differential if you’re confident he starts

      1. Malkmus
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks, I'll wait for pressers on Foden I think. Utd away aren't great and Gordon has been in great form.

  15. fplerosion
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Could do with some definitive Ederson news one way or another. The easy option is to switch to Ortega but then i run the risk of getting Pep'd in GW37

      1. Sun God Nika
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        will happen either way

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I maintain that buying Ederson is a mistake and I would shift to another goalie and shift the 3rd City spot outfield.

        1. fplerosion
            1 month, 18 days ago

            I think i'll have to offload him for Walker/Gvardiol. Is Dubravka too much of a risk? (Pope return) - id really rather not go with Onana or Petrovic

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 14 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              I'd go Petrovic. If you want, you also have Pickford as a SGW option.

        2. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I think he is already in training again.

        3. KunDogan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Follow the news, Ederson could be fine by gw37.

      3. Saka Rice
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Diaz to Bruno doesn't seem worth it this week right? Diaz will start and haz a better fixture

      4. dansmith1985
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        G2G?

        Pickford
        Gabriel Burn Walker
        Foden Gordon Bruno Palmer Son
        Isak Haaland

        Petrovic Jackson Maguire Porro

        1. Not again Shirley
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Son to Arsenal midfielder maybe.

      5. Timbo123
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Already have halland and kdb.

        Should I bring in foden for a city attacking treble up?

        Or go for someone else like Gordon/bruno/saka

        1. mrelpea
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          That’s probably enough for this gameweek, but could be nice for DGW

      6. mrelpea
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Afternoon all,

        Who scored more in GW36:

        A) Mateta + 4 points
        B) Isak

        Thanks!

        Current team - save transfer or consider getting Gvardiol for lascelles?

        Onana Petro
        Porto Gab Gusto Munoz Lascelles
        Foden Palmer Garnacho Gordon Son
        Haaland Isak Muniz

      8. Fat Ronaldo

        Not much coverage on those FH37 anywhere.

        Which 2 from the below for gameweeks 36/38 only (assuming 3 Arsenal already):
        Watkins
        Mbuemo
        Wood
        Muniz
        Reguillon
        Other?

      9. FplmorelikeFml
          1 month, 18 days ago

          My wise fpl wizards, the humble peasant has but one question for all of you. Spurs against Liverpool, do you think it'll be a high scoring game or a dull affair?

        • lilmessipran
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          My two transfers last week- Schar and Bruno ..both are doubtful already so stupid this game, every week shite luck.

        • bob leonardo
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Currently approaching GW36 with this squad:

            GK: Raya (BOU H), Pickford (LUT A)
            DF: Gvardiol (WOL H), Schar (BUR A), Branthwaite (LUT A), White (BOU H), Gusto (WHU H)
            MF: Foden (WOL H), Son (LIV A), Gordon (BUR A), Havertz (BOU H), Palmer (WHU H)
            FW: Haaland (WOL H), Isak (BUR A), Jackson (WHU H)

            Raya, Gvardiol, White, Foden, Havertz, Palmer, Haaland and Isak are all nailed starters for me.
            Have a bit of a benching headache.

            Not sure if I should play Branthwaite (LUT A) or Schar (BUR A) as my third defender, My current bench is Pickford, Branthwaite, Son, Gusto

            Not sure what to do. Please help?

            1. bob leonardo
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Plan is BB37, no other remaining chips

            2. kajhaj
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Doing WC this week and BB next. Haaland+Isak are set for the attack, but who’s the last? Anyone other than Jackson?

              Any other changes to this?
              Petrovic, Onana
              Gvardiol, Branthwaite, Gabriel, Burn, Maguire
              Palmer, Foden, Saka, Bruno, Gordon
              Isak, Haaland, (Jackson)

              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Up against it leading two major leagues by 10 and 20 points, with my 10 point lead in front of a Fantasy Football God...i'm shooketh

              1FT, 4.3 ITB, BB37,

              Ederson / Petrovic
              Gabriel / Regulon / Dalot / Schar (inj) / Ait Nouri
              Palmer / Son / Fernandes / Gordan / Foden
              Watkins / Isak / Hojlund

              Thoughts?

              To go without Haaland seems like sheer foolishness, would have to take a -4 to get him in for Hojlund and ship Son for a Mid sub £7.1

              Son >

              A.Garnacho
              B. Olise
              C. Gibbs-White
              D. Gross
              E. Gallagher

              Not sure any of them start over Gordon for me but thinking cover for Fernandes if he does not play as well as bench boost next week.

            4. bob leonardo
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Start Cucurella (WHU H) or Branthwaite (LUT A)?
