  1. Dugout Discussion - Everton vs Newcastle 1 day, 8 hours ago

    Yeah, it's lucky, but for me it's more about the skill of it. Baines gets 6 for a penalty but Kane gets 4? Based on what? He hasn't executed things any differently: his positioning doesn't make the task harder (like it is in open play); he isn't less skilled at striking a ball; etc. It's a part of the game I've always taken for granted, but when you think about it, it makes no sense. » Read

    Penalties should be 4 (or 5) across the board. I understand why open play goals are scored differently for forwards, mids, and defenders, but when it comes to a pen the player hasn't done anything demonstrably different based on their position. » Read

    Hmmm. I'd wait to see what happens in the Europa League match(es), but I just don't see Ramsey playing consistently in the PL matches. » Read

    I'd do Mahrez to Sterling. I'd consider Barnes to Ayew. As much as I have an irrational love for Tadic, even I wouldn't bring him in at this point. » Read

    Do you already have Lingard and/or Ayew? » Read

    Sane just getting his rest makes me want to bring him IN. » Read

  7. Captain Poll - Gameweek 36 1 day, 21 hours ago

    I think for me it's just that this idea that Aguero being out means Jesus has to play every match is a little short-sighted. With the attacking options Pep has they can get by for one match without Jesus, I'm fairly confident. » Read

    I don't know about more nailed, but I suspect they'll play the same number of minutes, and I think Sterling is better value. I'll probably be going with both, but there's no way I'm not going with Sterling. » Read

    He could get rotated just as easily as any of the mids, in my opinion. It's not like City couldn't beat the rest of these squads with Sterling playing up top for a game. » Read

  10. Dugout Discussion - Man City vs Swansea 2 days, 17 hours ago

    Yes. As I should be. His miss cost my captain 12 points but Jesus captainers lost only 6, in effect. The math is pretty simple, really. » Read

  11. Dugout Discussion - Man City vs Swansea 2 days, 17 hours ago

    I’m a firm believer that luck in FPL evens out over the course of the season, but as a Sterling captainer and Jesus non-owner, seeing Jesus get a positive point and Sterling essentially lose 12 out of that penalty miss seems particularly unlucky/unjust.Oh well, onwards and (hopefully) upwards. Hopefully others benefited from it. » Read

  12. Scout Notes - Usual Service From Salah 2 days, 23 hours ago

    This is my Salah-less team for now (if Salah is in the starting lineup for 36, he will be in for Silva, with Arnie becoming Kenedy - and just reversing those in 37).DDG - McCarthySmalling - Vert - Chilwell - Fernandez - DummettSterling - Sane - Silva - Son - ArnieKane - Vardy - AyewI think Vardy still has goals/hunger in him, and prefer the triple up with City midfield. » Read

    Wouldn’t this bib theory also have Mertesacker starting? Dubious. » Read

    Thanks for the response. Definitely one to consider. » Read

    Not on a FH.(Lossl) - (Elliot) VVD - Kiko - Dawson - Mee* - (Francis) Salah - Sterling - Ozil - Mane - (Ibe) Auba - Rondon - DeeneyAnything worth a hit? A keeper for -4 seems silly. I have 4.8 in the bank, so I could do Rondon or Deeney to Jesus, or Ibe to Sane, but I'd still be playing ten.Any feedback is appreciated. » Read

    Worked well for me last week with Sanchez (c). » Read

    As you pointed out yourself, he has more points, and you don't seem to be limited by budget. I'm confused. » Read
