  1. The Scout Network: Are premium defenders worth the investment? 2 days, 3 hours ago

    B. I made a bet that Robbo would outscore TAA this season and it's holding so far. TAA has been pinned further back because teams are adapting and stifling his creativity. Robbo takes corners from the left and the deep freekicks from the left side. He's crushing TAA on penalty box touches, shots, everything. The only thing TAA has is direct FKs. Even if he bends like 3 in for the season (how many he got last year), I don't think he'll beat Robbo's pure involvement from open play. I also think Robbo will get some penalty assists too because of the way he charges into the box. Don't think the double up is worth it without VvD. The backline has been suspect since restart as well. » Read

    Forget cover. Pick the best option available. The only argument for cover is when it offers a captaincy. Are you gonna captain Sterling in the next 4? 99% chance that is no. » Read

    Jimi. But turns out I was wrong. Sterling has lower ownership in FPL. That's pretty crazy to me. I guess because I've been staring at the FanTeam page where Sterling has like 60% ownership so long I just assumed he was higher. » Read

    He has the highest non-penalty xG. He has better fixtures over the next 4. He has lower ownership. Pool look better than City going forward. If Kane wasn't so good and demanding my attention, I would bring him in. I'm getting Mane as my KdB replacement in the FanTeam 500eur High Roller so I'll gladly put my money where my mouth is 🙂 » Read

    Mane. Stats say Mane. » Read

    Soucek and Mitchell. KWP-Dallas-Brewster bench. » Read

    Fair. This isn't for now. Maybe in a few weeks' time. I have a critical decision next week on what I do with Reece James. I could either downgrade the slot to a 4.5m and go for a budget backline, go for a mid-price option like Chilwell or go premium with Robertson. » Read

    Matip is 5.4m... That's a nice price. Matip + Pulisic OR Robertson + Foden? » Read

    Captaining Mane over Salah in the DGW last season cost me over 200 quid. Not gonna do it again especially this season with all the extra pens. » Read

  10. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 13 hours ago

    I think it's too early. But Aguero is very tempting. West Ham is exactly the sort of game he loves too. Would not be surprised to see him get a 16 pointer this weekend. » Read

    Get rid of the problems. Podence and James are problems. James + Podence > Grealish + Kilman. That's it. Foden can stay. » Read

    Grealish. » Read

  13. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 13 hours ago

    I planned for this fixture run with Semedo + Saiss so doubling with the cheaper Kilman seems a no-brainer. » Read

  14. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 13 hours ago

    Sure, but any player that has history hitting a hat-trick against a specific team on a specific ground should be highly considered as captain. » Read

  15. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 13 hours ago

    No. But I think Grealish is worth the extra because he's nailed on and a chance creating machine. » Read

  16. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 13 hours ago

    He's definitely in the top 5 imo. I'd have him 4th ahead of Son. In this same fixture last year (first game of the season), he hit a hat-trick. » Read

  17. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 14 hours ago

    He's a good manager. I think FPL is so high variance though that it's hard to tell if he's exceptional or lucky especially this early on in a season. » Read

    I've been impressed by Thiago Silva. Has been a rock for Chelsea today. Their defense looks way better with him in it. » Read

    Rashford's decision making this game has been atrocious. » Read

  20. Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence? 2 days, 15 hours ago

    That's the point. On paper they have the two most expensive players in the world. They should be smashing a defense with Tuanzebe in it! » Read
