  1. Sane's return to fitness adds to City rotation risk out wide 1 day, 11 hours ago

    Nice! Ah the times when a side with Brian Pinas on the bench could compete with Barcelona. » Read

  2. Sane's return to fitness adds to City rotation risk out wide 1 day, 11 hours ago

    Yeah, I think you're right. As I've said above, Pep will surely want his first-choice XI (if he has such a thing) to have some momentum going into the Champions League ties in August but he can build that match-readiness steadily over a full ten games, perhaps concluding with longer run-outs for the likes of KDB in July especially to get them fully match-sharp. Rotation could be particularly rife in the early Double Gameweek for them. But who knows what diabolical plans Guardiola has in store, I've rarely been able to second-guess him. » Read

    They did so in the Community Shield when he was meant to be off to Bayern then... » Read

  4. Recapping the best Bournemouth players ahead of FPL restart 1 day, 16 hours ago

    Yeah, definitely. The possibility (even if it's a slim one) that the season could still be curtailed after a restart - if we have a second COVID-19 wave, for instance - will surely focus the minds of the teams who are fighting for survival/Europe from the off in case a points-per-game resolution is needed. » Read

    Aye, those whose held firm after going big on Arsenal and City in GW29 will likely have the initial edge over the slow Wildcarders. » Read

  10. Kane with much to prove as a premium FPL asset as he nears a return to fitness 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Ta very much! Yeah whatever FPL do, unlimited transfers or otherwise, I think there'll be a fair few creating squads from scratch (even a temporary one via Free Hit) if it's a Double Gameweek 39. » Read

    Doubt he's going to make up eight goals on Vardy, like. » Read

  17. Scoutcast Episode 331 – Best FPL players so far and for the rest of the season 4 days, 18 hours ago

    Yeah he would have lost all three bonus points in both the City and Leicester games had he assisted rather than scored the penalties, but as you say, not much of a downside when he has already been among the attacking returns. Guess the issue is the assumption that he would continue to win penalties at the same rate, which is a less predictable route to points than someone who we know is on spot-kick duties. I think in 2018/19 he won only two of United's 12 penalties. But then, as we've seen, some players have become more pre-disposed to winning them (Zaha being the prime example) because of the evolving nature of their games. Rashford's fleet-footed driving runs into the box from the left are probably more likely to attract a greater number of desperate challenges than if he was playing as a static forward up top, as he has done previously (the one in the Manchester derby is a great example). So it's definitely something to note as it hugely impacts on, for example, his xG this s… » Read

  18. Scoutcast Episode 331 – Best FPL players so far and for the rest of the season 5 days, 5 hours ago

    Yep - very, very good point on the Fantasy assists for the pens. I guess that there'll be a big difference in terms of the BPS, though, with forwards getting 24 for a goal and just nine for an assist. Rashford scoring a penalty versus winning a penalty could be the difference between a nine-pointer and five-pointer. But heck, a relatively minor concern. Mentioned the new Fernandes' supply line offsetting any potential loss of DFK/pens in the Scoutcast, agree with you there. Rashford (like his team) has been more than fine counter-attacking against the bigger sides (12 of his 19 returns have come v the top ten) and as much as anything else, someone like Fernandes was needed for the types of games against the also-rans that threaten to get frustrating. Looking forward to seeing it all come together. » Read

    Ha! I do know that Meet the Manager is one of the things on hold while the season is. Andy's obviously in charge of video stuff now but MtM is Joe's baby, so hopefully there'll be more of them once we're back up and running. » Read
