  1. Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures? 4 days, 10 hours ago

    He may well be completely fine. I hope he is. But the way he first fell and first lay on the ground can't just be completely dismissed because he headed a ball later. » Read

  2. Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures? 4 days, 10 hours ago

    I don't know what happens in the EPL, but in Australian sport yes, an independent doctor would assess him and make the final decision. The player, coach and club doctor have no say. » Read

    Exactly. Not sure people fully understand how concussions work. You cannot simply ask the player if he's fine, the answer is meaningless. » Read

    It's rare that they fall like a sack of potatoes and don't move an inch while laying prone on the ground. » Read

    Mildly concussed players often do play on. They are the last person you can trust in that situation. And the manager is probably second on that list. » Read

    100%. I'm not suggesting it was a terrible incident or anything, but with these things I think it's best to go off the player's instant reaction, and he didn't do anything reassuring. Didn't clutch his head, didn't show pain/discomfort, didn't do anything at all. In Australian Rugby League, he would've been taken from the field and made to sit an HIA, after which if he passed he would be allowed to come on the field 15 minutes after the incident. » Read

    Did you watch it? He hits the ground and doesn't move an inch. Just lies there flat for a few seconds. Telltale sign of at least a mild a concussion. Pep calling it a bit of "distortion" (disorientation?) won't fool anybody. » Read

    He probably shouldn't even have come back on and continued, he should've been doing a head injury assessment. But I hope he's fine and plays. » Read

    To be fair he looked concussed when he first went down. Completely motionless. Getting back up and playing another two minutes is not indicative either way. He could have a concussion, and if he does he won't play. But he'll be back a week later of course, so anyone who owns him (like me) can't do much now but hope. » Read

  10. The House's Money: Why maintaining a good start to the FPL season is so difficult 4 days, 15 hours ago

    "I think many would agree that it is his attacking endeavour down the right flank that is perhaps his strongest attribute, one that was restricted a little at Barcelona because of their system and the presence of Lionel Messi frequently on the right wing, and so to play with three centrebacks at Wolves to support him will give him more freedom to attack on the overlap and take some of the pressure off him in the defensive phase of the game." "So I think his game is very much suited to a right wingback role, and although it’s not really a position he’s tried out before, his prior experience both as a right back and a winger stands him in good stead to be a success at Wolves." » Read

  12. Should FPL managers sell Aubameyang ahead of Arsenal's tough fixture run? 7 days, 20 hours ago

    I guess so. You are allowed more than one defender in your squad, right? I think I was adamant about Konsa being a great option. Anyway, isn't this the fun of the game? It is to me. We're all going to have TAA, KDB etc. The thrill of the budget enabler is the best. » Read

  13. Should FPL managers sell Aubameyang ahead of Arsenal's tough fixture run? 7 days, 20 hours ago

    Konsa! Called it, always nice to pluck a good differential out of the underlying stats in the members area. Goal threat very likely to increase without Hause in the team, who was dominating attempts and had the best numbers in the whole league post restart. https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/09/17/fpl-gameweek-2-team-news-and-injury-updates-so-far/?hc_page=6&hc_sort_by=comment_date#hc_comment_22443405 » Read

  14. Fabinho starts at centre-half as injured Gomez and Matip miss Chelsea v Liverpool 9 days, 2 hours ago

    Grealish vs Fulham over Barnes for GW3 to get your Wildcard off to a flyer. You'll thank me later. » Read

  15. Alli not in the Spurs squad as Armstrong returns for Saints 9 days, 6 hours ago

    I don't ever make decisions made on price. But he's still going to drop. Staying in my team though, just deserves some returns. » Read

  16. Alli not in the Spurs squad as Armstrong returns for Saints 9 days, 6 hours ago

    Adams owners, this is so tough to watch. He's going to have an insane xG and could have a hat-trick... but he'll get 1 point and drop in price. » Read

  17. Alli not in the Spurs squad as Armstrong returns for Saints 9 days, 6 hours ago

    I still can't work out what I've just seen there from McCarthy. Just shocking. As an owner I'm not confident he stays first choice for much longer. » Read

  18. Alli not in the Spurs squad as Armstrong returns for Saints 9 days, 6 hours ago

    It really is. No luck at all for Adams owners so far. But if you give up and sell before the price drop you know he's bracing against West Brom in GW4. I think we need to stay patient. » Read

  19. Alli not in the Spurs squad as Armstrong returns for Saints 9 days, 6 hours ago

    Adams is getting a 1-pointer after all that, isn't he? Price will drop too. Unbelievable. » Read

    They can't take that one away. Finally. Now Adams as well please. » Read
