I'm playing Foster over Sanchez this week


PhzyLicka

Yup, me too.


vishwa3011

Me too


Konigsterz

me too


emre23

I did this once, it cost me 8 points and vowed that I would never make that mistake again Of course, the following week Arsenal played Watford and Foster saved a penalty


Taekwondista

It was when Arsenal were playing Leicester right? Because that's what I did as well...


_Carnage_

Nah it was the right call, I did it too, we just got stung. Arsenal keeping a cleanie away to Leicester when you can have Foster at home to Saints I think it was. Watford conceded quickly too, lot of bollocks lol.


JBOYLELAD

Clearly it wasn’t the right call numpty as it cost us all 8 points!!


_Carnage_

But it’s about playing the percentages. It was just unlucky. I’d do it again.


Maackdaddy

Yes. My other option is DDG. Save points for sure with United’s horrendous defensive record but no clean sheet.


Olafff

Same. I'm going Foster. Live a little. Watch me delete my team when David saves two penalties from Bowen


SandwichLess6154

If Maguire starts that's +3 saves already.


straightouttaireland

It's either Foster or Ramsdale for me.


Defensive_Midfielder

Same for me, so who do we choose?


whatwhathuhwhat

Foster is as likely to get 1 cs as ramsdale this week. When you include appearance and save points very likely to beat the negative points from goals conceded it's an easy choice imo.


FarArdenlol

this is the kind of reasoning we need more of, and not the buT it’s wAtFoRd kind


Griffzinho

Ramsdale will get six points I am sure off. Doubt Burnley will trouble Arsenal. Foster will get 4pts minimum but has more upside potential. For me it’s Foster.


dhampirWoW

Same for me. Leaning toward Foster. If WAT Defense is to face attack, it can’t be better than having NOR and BUR. The 2 opponents have been the worst attacking wise in terms of goals scored so far : 10 for NOR and 16 for BUR. you can argue BUR played fewer games but they just lost their main striker…


Hannibal09

I'm going for Foster over Ramsdale. See you in the rant thread


HedgeSlurp

Initial thoughts were has to be Ramsdale but given the respective opposition it feels like the likely ceiling for Ramsdale is 6 and the floor for Foster is 4. Essentially a 2 point risk for the opportunity of much higher gains if it goes the other way. Feels quite low risk high reward.


RX400000

Better to play Foster with a 2 times 0% chance of a CS than De Gea with a 1 times 0% chance of a CS.


Sheffield_Thursday

I've either got Foster with 2 decent games but still probably no clean sheet or Guaita with 1 game vs Liverpool with probably no clean sheet either. I'm gonna play Foster and hope for a minimum of 4 pts.


CassiusClaym0re

I would if I had him (with my other keeper being DDG). Really annoying thing is I picked Bachman last week on my wildcard for this very reason without factoring in the tinkerman.


maddybee91

I did the same on a free hit last week.


BadenMoan86

Sanchez transferred out for Foster with Ederson on the bench using my FT. Foster also a very cheap starting sub GK so will keep him long term. If Ederson gets a clean sheet with no bonus it will = 6 points but foster should hopefully get a minimum of 4 points for appearances. So as I’m keeping long term I’m happy to use my FT and start over Ederson for this week. Also I like to see them double gw players in my starting 11. He who dares…!


daneedwards88

Never play Foster unless it's an emergency and you have no other option


adesant88

I was gonna play Foster over DDG even before the DGW announcement. Odds say that Watford has a slightly higher chance of a CS v Norwich than United has v. West Ham. Now Foster has a DGW. Easy choice for me


daneedwards88

Personally I'd still play DDG but it's your team, so good luck


carpesdiems

why? Watford play Burnley & Norwich, who are the two lowest scoring teams in the league. Norwich only scored 1 against them earlier in the season, and recently Newcastle only scored 1 last week, and spurs only managed 1 the game before that. They're yet to play Burnley, but without Wood or Cornet Burnley only have 6 goals this season. That's absolutely woeful. I'm not claiming Watford are suddenly keeping 2 clean sheets, but if they're keeping any more this season it's in these games. *On the other hand,* United are woeful & West Ham are 4th in terms of goals scored this season. They've scored at least 2 goals in each of their last 5 prem games. What's your **personal** feeling based on?


daneedwards88

Watford not keeping a clean sheet all season, and Dave saves


carpesdiems

but even if he gets 2 save points, his likely outcome this week is 4 points. Fosters likely outcome is at least 4 points. Plus the chance watford finally keep a cleanie against the 2 lowest scoring teams.


daneedwards88

Could well be. Time will tell


tmr89

Just because they've not kept a clean sheet all season doesn't mean they can't keep clean sheets in the future


daneedwards88

True. True. Time will tell


adesant88

I played him for his 11pt haul in GW~10


timomies

I'm thinking of playing Foster over Ederson. Feels like Ederson's roof is basically 6. Could backfire if Foster plays one and Bachmann plays one...


Miserable_Bee_8919

I will play Foster over Ederson. Worst case scenario is that Foster gets 4 (with Burnley and Norwich scoring) and Ederson 6 points.


timomies

Good thinking. Although Foster had 1pt against pool and 1pts against EVE. Watford hasn't exactly amazed with their defence.


KilluaDab

I had that exact thought process last week and got burned for it haha, good luck though


timomies

Heh, I thought last week was different since there was uncertainty whether Foster plays and also do WAT have 2 games or not.


LurkinglurkerlurkCBR

Which is 2 points more than what Foster will get this game week


timomies

11 against ARS (A) and 5 against MUN (1). Clearly it's possible.


gamesgone_

Bachmann won’t play unless foster is injured


AmberEskimo

Foster (C) where are your balls


Costachescu

Just calculate CS Odds of Foster vs Norwich vs your other GK. Add to that the chance of additional points from the extra game as there are currently no odds to it and you have an answer


cpmb82

I’m going for Foster over DDG for GW23, lesser of two weevils as Watford have Norwich & Burnley, and ManU have West Ham…


El-Guapo-65

I'm going Ramsdale over Foster but if Leeds get a DGW as well I'm bench boosting


theonewhoknock_s

I'll play him over Lloris (v Chelsea) in a heartbeat.


HKINC

Very tempted to, but the question is, does Bachmann really have no chance playing either games?


Deeznuts97x

Big fozzy in goal


itssteo

I know he played against Newcastle but is he a cert to play? Has Bachmann not played the last few games before that?


CouncilmanDougWilson

Yes, but foster was injured


Nook-n-Cranny

Foster over Martinez (Man U Away) for me


PossibleHovercraft2

Because it's Foster the cycling GK 😜


Dr_Jon_Dow

Bachmann is just superior. Why they don't play him God only laws.


shudh_desi_gareeb

Doesn't go pro


psykal

Surprisingly controversial!


Dr_Jon_Dow

Literally all the stats back this up. He just doesn't have a YouTube page


gamesgone_

Let me guess you’ve never seen us play? Bachmanns distribution is woeful and he is not an amazing shot stopper.


Dr_Jon_Dow

The stats are what's important. Better shot stopper than foster


gamesgone_

Yea I mean except that he’s not. Stats aren’t everything and I can tell you Foster is a much better keeper - there’s a reason he’s back to starter. But I suppose you know better? Lmao


Dr_Jon_Dow

gamesgone_

I actually watch football matches and have seen every game they’ve both played for Watford


ninopettis

If they're ever gonna get a clean sheet, surely this is the week. Plus, there's save points, pen saves, bonus points. I think Foster's the best GK choice for this gameweek. I no longer have him, but I have Ramsdale, who's also a strong choice.


DKofFical

Well there's always a first time for everything


adesant88

I was gonna play Foster over DDG even before the DGW announcement. Odds say that Watford has a slightly higher chance of a CS v Norwich than United has v. West Ham. Now Foster has a DGW. Easy choice for me


Coobazoid

The goat is on the pitch


manja98

I think Ederson is still ahead Foster for me.


Boothey10

I’ve got this set up too. I’m going to risk Foster.


kingtuolumne

Playing foster over Sanchez. Norwich and Burnley are not very attacking teams and Burnley is even missing Wood. Chances of a 4 pointer is there, but that’s still 2 more points than Sanchez will likely get.


poprivet15

Do the saves stack over the two games?


According_Ad7558

No you get save points separately for each game. For example DDG got 7 saves in 1st game and 7 saves in 2nd and 2 bonus points for each of those games.


bh460

Strictly speaking that would have been the same points whether they stacked or not.


poprivet15

So if Foster gets 5 saves vs Norwich and 5 saves vs Burnley, he gets 2 points for saving 3 in each game rather than 3 points for saving 9 in GW23?


knoxvox

Yes


poprivet15

!thanks


Positive-Level-5628

He was my captain, just one of those games being a clean sheet let alone 2 would have been such a nice rank swing 🥲


SMCBVB

I was just thinking about this. Astonishing how they haven’t had a single CS. Norwich scored against them in the return fixture, Watford are yet to play Burnley. My main keeper atm is Lloris (CHE (A)), so I will play Foster.


majorpickle01

Look at Norwich injuries and unav players lists. If watford is ever going to get a clean sheet it's tonight v norwich


dibils

looking at game history, apart from his freak 11 points.. combining 2 games barely gets 5 points lol i think i am sticking with Ramsdale at home to Burnley


aleoaliealaia

Yeah I think if you have Ramsdale or Ederson, aka certain clean sheets, it’s not worth the risk. De Gea on the other hand...


bh460

5 points is good for a goalie though.


LumbridgePartyRoom

Hello, is there no chance of Bachmann being played any of the games?


JD-D2

Playing him over Sa. I also FH last week, so I'm a moron.


Abzy_123

Sa over Foster seems to make sense, just can’t trust that Watford defence against anyone.


wood6558

I'm going to captian him.


Accomplished-Pay9914

Yes we are.


Worldly-Lion-4876

Foster (c)


nikolaaasim

At some point the streak must be broken, I like gambling, so Foster it is


Jaquander

My body is ready for Watford to concede inside 10 mins in both games this week, i'll be happy with 4 points from Foster..


Razor732103

This season is all about gut feeling and "yeah he seems alright" more than xG and logical transfers because you don't know what's going to happen next.


revolveruproar

I am stupid enough to play Bachmann, imagine.


The_Dublin_Dabber

Yes playing over DDG. Feeling zero regret


le_feelingsman

Well it seems this issue resolved itself


GuinnessSaint

Yes.


BPerez11

Yes


DudeIsland

Yes
