      Possibly the greatest goggle-eye’d thespian of all time! Or is he, grateful views.

        Nothing sadder than responding to your own posts!

    Any news on Bruno?

      Fine thespian but not so much goggle-eye’d, but some might debate the point.

      https://www.manutd.com/en/news/detail/erik-ten-hag-says-injured-players-desperate-to-return-before-end-of-season

      "Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford are close to comebacks and tried hard to be involved against Arsenal at the weekend.

      “You have to see here at Carrington. The players are desperate to play,” Ten Hag told reporters on Tuesday.

      “I have seen that Licha Martinez [wants to play]. Bruno did a fitness test on Sunday to play. Rashford did everything he could do. He trained, tried to train last week but he didn't make it.

      “Players are desperate to play and they want to be in the right shape. "

    who d you play
    a. Doughty (FUL)

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think Luton are done. Spurs is likely to have something to play for and should easily beat SHU

      1. Ask Yourself
        • 8 Years

        What do spurs have to play for ?

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Europa conference places

          If Man Utd were to win the FA Cup it also offers an extra spot.

          It's not everyone's cup of tea but it's there for the Thursday - Sunday thing.

          1 month, 9 days ago

          If Newcastle and Chelsea win tonight (as expected), they could both catch Spurs with a better goal difference.

          Spurs should secure 5th but they won’t want to take chances

  5. DAZZ

    I can’t believe the run i’ve had. 1 red arrow since GW21. 16 greens in 17 weeks. 6k in second chance league

    1. The Ilfordian

      Wow, well done. What’s your secret?

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        The secret is scoring more points than as many people as possible. Shhh. Don't spread it.

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • 12 Years

      1 green arrow between gw1 and gw20?

    3. Ask Yourself
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      67k in second chance here and 18k overall which I think is pretty crazy considering I decided to Wildcard in 21 because I was bored at the time

                Never made the cut, more of a s squire. I make sure to prioritise me time, but unfortunately it usually turns into mead time.

          That's progress, normally I'm just wasted.

  6. Rassi
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Just noticed Declan Rice has 7 goals and 9 assists. Not bad for a 5.5 M player. Too bad the pricing of players was such a failure this season. That combined with surprises like Palmer pretty much allowed us to have all the goodies. No need for enablers like Rice.

    Hope it's different next season.

    1. Forgetmeknot
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeh I’ve noticed over the last 2 seasons starting prices have been lowered, I’m guessing to appeal to mainstream players who can ‘own’ all the star names.

      It’s a shame and takes something away from the game, finding the John Lund strand of the game no longer so important

      1. Rassi
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeah. Also Kane's departure took away "the 3rd super premium" thus making budgeting easier. I seriously hope players like Saka, Watkins and Palmer will cost 10-11 M each next season.

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          It'll probably go the other way even more. Defenders have been such poor value this season, you'll probably be able to get Trent and Robbo at 5m, James and Chilwell after being injured all season will come in at 4.5m.

    Is there any sites or ways to be able to see how a team has done for a selected GW spell? I.e how a team has done overall during gw 33 - gw 37

        Cheers. Lots of interesting stuff, sadly can't see what I'm after for overall rank comparison, although realise its a niche request!

          The gameweek history tab of the FPL site has each players rank at the end of all the gameweeks. That's the only thing I know of really.

      Street food is the thing. Usually sold from a building and eaten in another building but delivered via a street

        Even though I am not in Vietnam, there is a Vietnamese Restaurant about 250m from mine castle. Ginger fish, prawns with snow peas, wonton soup, steamed rice and vegetarian spring rolls have been ordered from their larder!

    Petrovic
    White Gabriel Gvardiol Porro
    Son Foden Palmer Garnacho
    Haaland Jackson

    (Onana Gordon Isak Branthwaite)
    1FT & 4.6m

    Garnacho to Saka/Havertz the sensible transfer here?

    Thoughts on benching?

  13. Shark Team
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Olise against drunk Villa or Saka ?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Is Olise on penalties?

      1. Shark Team
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        No…Eze

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Saka

    2. Sterling Archer
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Sick of Saka's yellow flags, think i'll be going Havertz and Olise as i have 2 FT's

  14. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    So which picks are still on your list considering the league is more or less settled now?
    Still worth investing in Arsenal? Pool?
    I'm kinda eager to include at least one CP pick as they will be playing at home for fun, they just enjoy scoring.

    1. Shark Team
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think Arsenal will win. They will try to score first to put pressure at City. I think they attack this game scoring 3-4 and maybe not keeping cs

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Other than GW34, where I went with Ben Brereton Nopoints and Ollie McBurnhim over Mateta and Eze, effectively ending mine gargantuan season, I don’t believe Palace have scored all season.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Good one!

    3. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think its between Saka or Havertz for me although im tempted by Olise.

    4. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'll most likely do KDB to Salah with my FT.

      Also considering Gordon to Olise / Eze for a hit.

    5. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Should add, I have 2FTs and probably getting rid of Bruno and Isak/Gordon so may have more flexibility

    6. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      It's not settled. Yes City should destroy West Ham, but stranger things have happened. Arsenal need to win, they'll set themselves up to do that. They'll realise that some early goals, and West Ham not conceding early might heap some nerves onto the crowd.

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I admire your optimism. I think City West Ham will be so one sided, by half time there’ll be City players stopping off at the touchline to tuck into the winners cake while team mates are practicing rabonas and rainbow kicks

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

          Yes of course.

          But there is always hope until there isn't.

          1. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Lol! Yes I agree. Small odds but odds nonetheless

    7. Atimis

      Leaving CP and Arsenal aside, thoughts on Pool picks?

      1. tricpic

        Salah potential last game at Anfield

      2. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Gakpo

      3. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I'm thinking Gakpo, getting Salah would mean losing Son for most and I wouldn't gamble on selling him before Sheffield

    8. shirtless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bit worried having sold Saka last week to fund BB. I could get back for Son but that could be a mistake. I have Odegaard still.

    Maguire to Gvardiol was quite the upgrade. Can't think of a better transfer ever. 27 points of pure profit.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      GW not over. Wait until Krafth gets a hattrick this evening and puts journeyman Gvardiol’s efforts in the shade

        If I hadn't of had Maguire injured, and sold Saka to get Gvardiol, I'd have had Livramento in! Praying for a scrap of points

      107, by far my best GW this season and still got 10 to go!

      Barely any rank gain though, still at 1.7m.

    Is Gordon to Son worth -4?
    Mini league rival has free hit to play so will most likely have Son and Salah playing.

      No. You’ll be fine. Both those players have entered the lollygagging-Saudi era of their careers.

    3. Saka Rice

      1 month, 8 days ago

      a -4 with just one gameweek left? Son would need to score more than 1 goal for that to be worth it to be honest go somewhere else

    KDB or Son in gw38?

    1. boc610

      son , I think spurs will go wild against the worst team in the league (maybe ever?) now they've achieved their main objective of the season

    Best transfer here?

    A) Ederson to Raya (Petrovic is my other GK)
    B) Garnacho to Olise (bench Isak)
    C) Isak to Mateta

    1. balint84
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      what is wrong with Isak?

      1. CONNERS
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Subbed off early last game due to illness
        Brentford haven't conceded in their last 3 home games
        Isak is highly owned so the OP is probably looking for a differential for the final GW

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

          Exactly, Brentford 2nd best xGc in last 4 GWs and most of Isak's goals have come at home rather than away. Plus the illness and potential return of Wilson

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B

  22. Gunners in Haaland
    • 4 Years

    Walker to Gvardiol or keep walking?

    1. Saka Rice
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      super sideways move, surely there are other better options. Would only consider that if you want to block your rival who has Gvardiol and the rest of your team is similar

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Stick and find a differential in attack.

  23. Saka Rice
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Bringing Gvardiol in WC31 has probably been the best move for me this season. I have single-handedly won my league thanks to this transfer and secured a top 10k ranking

    Which of these is the best move?

    A) Son > Salah
    B) Isak > Gakpo
    C) Isak > Mateta
    D) Jackson > Gakpo
    E) Jackson > Mateta
    F) Isak + Gordon > Salah + Fodder -4

    I have triple Arsenal and triple City already.

    1. Karan14

      Gordon to Olise

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years

        Also a nice move. Thanks for the suggestion.

    2. CONNERS

      C out of those I think.

    3. Atimis
      • 7 Years

      Would be between B and C, or Gordon to CP mid

    4. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years

      I’m considering A

    5. Rassi

      I like B

  26. BlzE_94
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Gordon -> ?

    A) Salah
    B) Saka
    C) Olise
    D) Trossard
    E) Bench Gordon and play current team

    Vicario
    Porro Gvardiol Gabriel
    Son Foden Havertz Palmer
    Haaland Isak Jackson

    Petrovic Gordon Burn Branthwaite

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B, bench Jackson

    2. Rassi
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Easy A

    3. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      How do you have funds for A! Definitely that one though and I would bench Isak

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years

      You can afford Salah in 1?

      Usually that's a hit no?

  27. Louis Van Gaalstones

    I find it hilarious seeing Arsenal fans complaining that Spurs fans should be ashamed of themselves, as if it wouldn't have been the exact same if the roles were reversed. Not to mention the fact that "thanks for the title" would have been levelled at Spurs fans for eternity - how is 'taking you down with me' not the better option in that case?

    2. boc610
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      i dont think so. thats one of the strangest atmospheres ive seen at a game to the point of it being abnormal. if arsenal had champions league football on the line and were in spurs position, that cash injection, those great european nights, a better calibre of player wanting to go to your club and therefore bringing you one step closer to a potential title trophy then I dont think they would if roles reversed. arsenal can lord it over spurs all day. theyve won titles. whats one more. there was some something miserably perverse in just wanting a rival to fail even though it probably sets spurs back even more years from where they want to be. Champions league would have been massive. city were pretty terrible and there for the taking yet they were hesitant and thats becasue of the vibes from the crowd. its bizarre.

        Yep, cutting off your nose to spite your face! I’ll never get it. Maybe if they as a club and fanbase had concentrated on improving themselves rather than worrying about rivals, they might have had more success. It’s hardly a winning mentality to care more about your rivals failure than your own success!

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It's literally putting a rivalry ahead of the clubs success.

      Is there an argument Spurs should try and lose every game, except the two Vs Arsenal, so that more teams get more points and are more likely to finish above Arsenal? Clearly not. But where do you draw the line?

      City have dropped points in 10 games this season - one of which was against Spurs already. So if Arsenal win the league (unlikely) they can already thank Spurs, West Ham and 9 other teams, for that.

      1. Rhysd007
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think they draw the line at a single game that would gift Arsenal the title in all likelihood.

        I'm not sure how I'd react in the same circumstance but I've thought about it for rugby, and I'd rather Wales and England both lose WC SF than lose to England in the final (even tho it would mean best ever finish for Wales) Rivalry is a weird one!

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'm a Man United fan and I was acutely aware of the implications of the game on Sunday if we'd won. Whilst I was conflicted, I'd have celebrated a United winner (or an equaliser, so even just some semblance of a chance....)

        2. boc610
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          rivalry within sport is logical-it happens because of geography etc but it also makes the very notion of sport nonsensical when it gets to the point it got to last night. fans turn up wanting to see their team lose isnt logical or certainly doesnt seem right. no champions league for spurs is pretty catastrophic considering their financial shape yet they were happy to see that dissappear in order for arsenal not to win something they ve won before and are still in brilliant shape to do again next season if they dont know. yet spurs have taken even more steps back because they are afraid of a bit of bantz

          1. x.jim.x
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Even if Spurs won, they still need Villa to lose on the final day - don't know why people are talking as if Spurs threw away guaranteed CL qualification.

    4. Jafalad
      • 14 Years

      If Arsenal were relying on other teams, then they were not good enough.

      1. boc610
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        arsenal were the best team in the league this season imo but they will end up having less points than city. it happens. a complete and utter anomoly of a 90min performance against a then struggling villa side has cost them. that was the moment.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          You can fixate on one game, exactly as Spurs fans are doing, but they'll have lost it over a number of them. Arguably the Christmas period was more damaging - drawing with Liverpool then losing to West Ham and Fulham (all just after losing to Villa). That is four of the 10 games they dropped points in the space of just three weeks. It's only because City have had a game in hand for the last 10-12 weeks that it has felt "close" or "Arsenal's to lose"

          1. boc610
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            i think its fair to fixate on one game when the form up to that point had been impeccable and has been since that game. . this one red mark in a sea of green

        2. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years

          They were doomed after they racked up 3 losses and a draw over Xmas

    5. x.jim.x

      I would gladly swap all our league titles to see Liverpool relegated and you're not a proper fan if you disagree imo

        A with Mateta.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years

          Early subs for Mateta in recent games is a slight concern

        A with Mateta. Who are your other 2 Strikers?

        1. Halcyon150524
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Haaland and Muniz who'll be benched

        2. MightyGar

          1 month, 8 days ago

          Olise

          Mateta

          1. Halcyon150524
              1 month, 8 days ago

              would need to lose one of

              Foden Palmer or Maddison/Son

              1. Rhysd007
                • 12 Years

                If it's Punty, lose Foden/Son and get Gakpo in as third striker instead of Muniz.
