    No, he has never scored in the CL proper. 10 appearances, no goals.He has 4 goals and 3 assists from 9 games in CL qualifying but they were against Bangor City and Reykjavik, hardly the greatest opponents.Similar in Europa League, he scored a few in qualifying against teams you probably never heard of but never in the EL proper.Pukki couldn't hold down a regular place at Celtic in his time there, averaging 44 minutes per appearance (39 appearances) before being sold to Bröndby.All in all, he doesn't have any record to get excited about. » Read

  4. Man United assets disappoint ahead of Cardiff finale 16 days, 2 hours ago

    Most of them lose 25% of their wages as a result of missing CL qualification, so they'll be spending most of the week on the 'phone to their agents anyway. You can't see many having their mind on the job. Cardiff could quite well turn them over.I think there are probably better GW38 punts than United players. Fixtures are less important at this stage of the season, you need to look at who is motivated.It becomes more understandable now why Mourinho had trouble with the group of misfits Woodward gave him. He said that Pogba was a virus and he may well have been right. » Read

    Not funny at all, he wasn't playing well. Took him till halfway through the season to start to find his feet in the PL. » Read

    If he's that good why is he still at Spurs? » Read

  7. FPL Question Time - Consult our panel ahead of Gameweek 37 21 days, 13 hours ago

    Like a bunch of journeymen.Take out Son & Kane and there isn't much left. Eriksen needs to be playing with much better team-mates really. Send him to RM and he'll do a Modric.Danny Rose was good, as usual. Sissoko made a difference when he came on. Otherwise nothing of note really. If Llorente is your 2nd striker at the club then what can you expect? The squad needed improvement last summer and didn't get it. » Read

    If this site is not convenient and usable there's something wrong with it, no? » Read

  9. How FPL community can help with 'Eye Test' videos in 2019/20 season 21 days, 19 hours ago

    Tuesday-Saturday-Wednesday-Sunday isn't the toughest schedule. Eriksen could well play them all. Liverpool have it tougher and you'd imagine there may be some rotation on Saturday if the CL tie is still in play. But only some, because Klopp isn't going to throw their outside chance in the PL. » Read

    Well, thanks. 😉If I can be the sole or main reason that someone would stop posting then I am more powerful than I think. 😯 » Read

    Yes, but...Irresponsible froth like this flies around on twitter all the time. The increased appearance of it on FFS (and the downslope in the quality of posts in general) owes a lot to the fact that FFS now regards its twitter presence at least as importantly as this site. Probably more.Someone commented recently that we seldom see the FFS staff posting on here nowadays by comparison with how it once was "because they are only interested in twitter really". I believe there is much truth to that. Their level of contribution has fallen and the quality of user posts and articles has fallen at the same time.I am all for an attempt to correct a problem (and stupid 'Kun benched' posts are a problem, I agree) but you need to look at underlying causes, not just the symptoms, Geoff. What does FFS want to be? A proper, specialist website or a player in the froth-world of twitter followings? The membership fee suggests it should be the former but it seems to be increasingly behav… » Read

    It isn't Chelsea's last home game, nor will it be Hazard's last game at the Bridge. 😕 » Read

    Depends on the Liverpool situation in the CL but probably Salah. Maybe Sterling. » Read

  16. Aubameyang and Lacazette both start but injured Ozil misses out 23 days, 19 hours ago

    Meyer is very highly rated in Germany and still only 23. If he gets a run in the Palace team (which he now seems to be getting) he could surprise you and will very likely out-perform his price tag by some way next season. » Read

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Max Meyer. » Read

  18. Aubameyang and Lacazette both start but injured Ozil misses out 24 days, 1 hour ago

    Yeah. I doubt Hazard would win many 100m races actually. Wouldn't be the fastest over that distance in the Chelsea squad, not by a long way.What he has is speed of thought & excellent acceleration and his low centre-of-gravity gives him the ability to twist and turn rapidly. Mobility is maybe the word.Sometimes clubs release data about this kind of stuff and it is very interesting. For example, the best midfielders tend to make good middle-distance runners (1500m) rather than sprinters. What is important for them is the combination of endurance and the ability to do the jog-sprint-jog-sprint thing over 90 minutes. Rather than pure pace. » Read

  19. The Huddersfield Effect boosts Liverpool assets in big Anfield win 24 days, 21 hours ago

    Maybe it should be 20k now rather than 10k but that really is quite easy to achieve that if that's what you are playing for. Winning it or getting close (say within 50 points) is much harder; to do that you need to either be very good or very lucky (and ideally both).The problem with 10k (or 20k) as a marker is that it encourages 'template' play, safety play. That isn't how to go about it if you want to win. You then need to play 'pure' (for points and only for points) and ignore ownership, coverage, captaincy polls and all the rest... and hope that you run hot enough in your judgements.This is the intrinsic problem with the so-called HOF. It rewards the steady, competent manager over the one that goes for broke. It's a bit like a sprinter that has a sequence of 9.9 second 100m runs. The HOF will reward that over the one that runs a 9.7 but also some 10.5s.It depends what your aim is. That's what I am saying. Playing for a safe 10k/20k finish has never appealed to me i… » Read
