    As teams are so similar I avoided Porro to have some different players.

    I thought I should get a Spurs player in case they did keep a clean sheet against Burnley.

    So it was down to Romero who I was pretty set on and Micky VdV.

    I picked Romero for his goal scoring threat, it turns out the 1st and now 2nd spot in the money league now have both.

    There's only 5 and 13 points in it, so all the fun of the fayre.

    Romero has a great chance too.

    One of them has BB to 88 points so far to keep it interesting.

    Saka is a differential for me over Son. Think it will be a tight, edgy game at Old Trafford later on.

      I brought Romero in a few weeks ago as a differential. He’s scored once and to say he could have had 4 or 5 is no exaggeration. Hopefully he can pick something up in the next two games.

      Nah, just enjoy some sunshine and playing football with the Euro tournament in Germany coming up.

      Have a few major finals before that.

      It's good to have a rest too.

      il revel in the time off from it. think il be glad to see the back of this VAR mess of a season anyway where every single thing just reverted to type anyway after the pretence of the 'most exciting title race in years'.

          The last 5 years I've picked my team in the last few days before deadline, finalising hours before when we have the complete preseason information and pregame press conferences.

          It's better because you get to relax and enjoy the summer and you are not emotionally attached to picks you made weeks ago when the information was different.

    Humour me guys. Which side prevails this gameweek?

    KDB (tot) + 24 points

    Or

    petrovic (bha)
    Vicario (MCI)
    Gvardiol (tot)
    Dalot (ARS, NEW)
    Fernandes (ARS, NEW)
    Jackson (BHA)

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      12 days, 14 hours ago

      The second group just need to beat an average of 3 points plus what KDB does so probably them.

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years

      Depends if Bruno plays both games

  4. Ronnies
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 14 hours ago

    Being Gvardiol in for GW38?

    Would mean having to sell Ederson for a -4. My rival has Gvardiol and I fear he could explode again Vs West Ham.

    Cheers.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years

      What's the situation, are you leading ?

      1. Ronnies
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        ATM he has a 10 point lead, but I'm on BB so I might close the gap. Either way it will go down to GW38 to decide the winner!

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 13 hours ago

          I think hits are a bad idea gw38 but maybe in your case it makes sense. BB could covet the -4. You're going to start -14 though and it's a bit to make up
          Did you play fh/tc gw37? Why didn't you play bb37? Just wondering. You might have reduced the gap by the time the gw ends anyway

          1. Ronnies
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 13 hours ago

            I did play BB this GW mate. So hopefully I can close the gap. Any chance Gvardiol is rested in 38?!! Lol

    2. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years

      No hit

    arteta to play a second string team for today's dead rubber?maybe give eddie and jesus a run out

    1. Pedersen

      12 days, 13 hours ago

      If they loose 2 and Liverpool win next 2, they will loose lots of millions. Absolutely not. They must win one of the next two

      1. Pedersen
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        And if city loose one and arsenal win both, they win tens of million more

      2. boc610
        • 12 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        lol im merely commenting on the fact do city dont look like dropping points and this is just a long drawn out torture for arsenal and they know it.

    2. Silecro
      • 6 Years

      What dead rubber? Is Arsenal mathematically out of the title challenge, am I missing something?

      Saw the BBC ask him why he's wearing the jumper
      Sounds like it's a superstitious thing

      Even if its 45 degrees he'd wear it

      I was wondering why he had that on, though in fairness he didn't seem to be sweating like a pig in it.

    I think the form book partly goes out of the window in a Man United v Arsenal encounter at Old Trafford.

    But the bookies still have Man U at 7 to 1 to beat Arsenal today.

    That's kind of mad.

    If they can fashion a win then there's a 3 way tussel for 6th place between Newcastle and Chelsea on 57 points, which is also kind of mad.

    1. Hangman Page

      I fancy a fiver on that. Can see United taking advantage of some nerves and somehow sneaking a win.

      1. boc610

        i fancy "and raya has come up for this corner " being uttered in the 10th min of injury time

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        It is definitely possible.

        I know everyone is writing Man United off, but a non league team can beat a Premier team on their patch, so anything can happen today.

    2. Goro Majima

      Did you see us against Palace? If we trouble Arsenal it would be a massive surprise.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        It would be a turnabout but it's not out of the question.

        I'm just seeing it as a one off game but yeah, Arsenal are better and hopefully Saka scores two!!

        They won 3-1 and 3-2 by the looks of it in the last two home games but there's plenty of L's in there too.

    What would you prefer if you were in my situation?

    Bruno TC, Gvardiol Vice TC

    A) Bruno starts and hauls

    B) Bruno misses out, Gvardiol becomes 63 point TC + Reg 2 points off bench

      Very good. I think anything inside the top 100k is a good season now. Over 10 million teams and with all the content on YouTube and sites like this it’s harder than ever

    heard an interesting point made of BBC radio 5 live, cant remember from who, but he basically said that manbe managers like Kompany and santo are so concerned with staying in shop window and being seen to be at least attempting "progressive" football aka playing out from the back that they arent really willing to change tactics. you really have to wonder had burnely been more willing to hit the ball into row z more often would they have stayed up? maybne not but how many points did they lose from attacks that started after they gave the ball away near their goal" and the funny thing is city are quite willing to play it long (and arsenal to who did it to great affect against city) and they would be seen as the teams to aspire to for this kind of football.

      Interesting point. Burnley playing out from the back without the players to do so at Spurs - given their pressing - did seem odd. Felt sorry for Muric.

    One last transfer.
    Havertz or Diaz?

      See if Arsenal’s heads are still in the right place\title race.

    Any transfer's you can see, also is the bench correct?

    Raya
    Walker / White / Porro
    Son / Havertz / Foden / Palmer
    Haaland / Jackson / Isak

    Petrovic | Gordon | Romero | Burn

    Thanks

    Just seen that Brennan Johnson ruined an assist and a potential goal opportunity for Son.

    So I should count my blessings.

    Going to be some very hefty bench boost scores this gameweek.

    1. BUZZBOMB
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Not really. Haaland (c), Petrovic, Palmer, only one Arsenal defender, Burn Gordon and Isak and a Bruno no show has negated the good work of Porro and VdV. So far... 71

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 22 hours ago

        Bruno would not be on most people's bench and I don't mean the lowest scoring 4 players in the 15.

        Of course players in the starting 11 fail or don't start, but the genuine benches are looking healthy for some with one of the Spurs defenders and Pickford etc in there
