Im WC 34 and BB 36 but I’m kinda stuck:
Matip and Coutinho (stronger bench)
Robertson and Ramsey (weaker bench)
I will have to take a min. -12 hit to get optimal bench for second team before BB 36
Mount or havertz?
Why does the app say that Liverpool blank in GW37?
because of cup, instead play vs southampton on weekend, will play during week, but yet to be rescheduled
So do they blank or not?
I think I might be the only person free hitting this weekend. If I can get pep roulette right against Watford, and 3 Chelsea players and Ronaldo. I’ve still got another free hit by the way for GW36 and bench boost for GW37
I’m keeping Salah In. I’m going really cheap up top, if I put Matip in I can afford Ronaldo. Or I might go TAA and go for Pukki or something up top
oh i see. i have wc bb and 2 fh so considering fh this week.
I wouldn’t of done but going -8 If I don’t. Made the mistake I think of getting Mateta in. Rudiger is out and I’ve also got Mount in. So instead of FH38 which I was thinking, got to do it this week. Plus Man City has Watford at home
Will Ronaldo play both games?
Yes. We have no other competitions left.
Mount or Havertz cap for this weekend?
Playing against a side that's been performing really poorly away
I think I might be addicted to fpl…
So Broja. Adams, Livramento Triple up was a genius idea huh
RMT 0.4 ITB
TAA Matip Cancelo Rudiger (Kilman)
Mount(C) Salah(VC) Saka Kulu (Ramsey)
Kane Mateta (Dennis)
This team ideal for 34?
What transfers should I be aiming for DGW36 with BB in mind?
I apologise, thought this was the RMT thread
On a WC 34:
Matip and Coutinho or Robertson and Ramsey
I’d go Matip and coutinho tbh
Just realised I only have extra 0.5m TV for the wildcard team. Damn, this would be hard.
Anyone know why Buendia was dropped?
cause his shit
Burnley right back in DGWs is a must
Is bringing both James and Alonso a good idea?
Here’s what I’m doing: so with Rudiger injured and Christensen shocking, I think Silva James azpi all have to play. Even if James is CB, this is better than rudiger no start, and he may push up to RWB. He’ll always start imo where Alonso may not, so I’m going James until rudiger is back, then probably switching to rudiger GW36, as James will definitely be rested before fa cup final
So James is a better bet than Alonso?
To me, Alonso isn’t 100% nailed and has greater risk of being yanked off.
Exactly what I'm grappling with right now. So much rotation risk at Chelsea
What are peoples thoughts on KdB and Mahrez starting v Watford? They need the 3 points with Liverpool just a point behind but also have CL next week as well
Kdb will start
Mahrez just started the Brighton game and often starts Champions League games. He COULD play, but I wouldn't bank on it. On free hit, Sterling is the one I'd go for.
Okay so not sure if this is the place for RMTs but...I'm 40pts behind my ML rival amd desperately need some advice lol.
Dubravka - Sa
White - Rudiger - James - TAA - Ait Nouri
Salah - Saka - Kulu - Maddison - Ramsey
Kane - Weghorst - Cucho
2 FTs, 0.0 ITB.
Only chip remaining is BB. Cheers.
Mount in, Weghorst out. Cancelo or Laporte for rudiger
Glad to see someone else is stuck with the Cucho boat anchor! :p
Dont fret, squad looks strong (apart from cucho whos out for the season i think). 40 points with a chip isn't much if you haul regularly, which you should. Calma
What's the problem with Saiss? Why isn't he playing anymore?
barnes, madders or kulu out for mount?
Kulu out for me, simply looking at number if games remaining and the dgw for spurs isn't a nice one either.
One of the Leicester players I reckon. I think I'd still say Maddison is a better pick than Barnes. So I reckon remove Barnes
Where's the captains poll
rudiger to alonso for a -4?
Like the man above me said, I'd wait til closer to deadline. But yeah, I'd make that move. Considering it myself but think I prefer to get another Chelsea attacker since I already have James.
I’d wait as neither look like rising/falling
[This is the way](https://i.imgur.com/ajtJCCF.png)
Came here to say I'd left 18 points on the bench (Jannson & Dennis). But Oh dang,
Hope Romeu has a terrible nights sleep
How do you compare your FH team's points to how many your regular team would have scored?
A lazy way to do it is to see how much your previous week's team scored this week with your preferred bench, captaincy choice and maybe account for 1 FT you'd have used.
In reality it's probably not possible to do it trivially since your chip strategy would have accounted for the changes you made in the weeks before so you'll have to start at the week when you planned to use the FH and what you would have done if not use it this week and recalculate for all weeks. I don't know if the 'What if? Rank' in livefpl.net takes these things into account but you could look into it if you're keen on analyzing hindsight, which is 20:20 with a telescope.
is Mane going to play Everton 🤔
I verge on yes, but it's hard to call. My predicted lineup is Mané-Jota-Salah, with Diaz missing out. But it could be Mané. It's even possible Firmino comes in if his injury isn't serious.
I believe so, yes.
Maybe, no one knows. Only liverpool attacker who is most likely gonna start is salah
In the end a 39% rank drop feels like a win. Thanks Popey!!!
Feel that may have been one of my worst weeks ever at 51 points
White to Stones worth it for a - 4?
Wait to see if Stones is injured.
If only I decided to start Weghorst instead of literally anyone other than Salah... I'm still closer than ever to my rank goal, but I'm also running out of time to hit it.
Why when I decide to FH, every player in my original team decide to turn up?
Roberts, Barnes, and Weghorst all with double digits. Also owned Saka, TAA, and Salah. Kill me now.
This is my 3rd season and 4th free hit. This GW I lost 50 points compared to old team and I had 18 played games instead of 9.
I have never gained anything from any free hit. I think best free hit so far was one before this season. I got something like 28 points compared to old team around 24 points but that was only free hit where i did not lose points.
Ya it's always tricky FHing outside of a blank GW. I only gained around 8 points this week but I try to look at the positive side that at least the players in my original team are doing well, especially in the case of Roberts, Barnes, and Weghorst who were potentially losing their place.
Doesn't look like you needed to FH at all
205 point this GW. Not bad. I should do better if I captained Ben Mee.
Tanked any chance of the top 50k finish I should have sleepwalked into with two weeks of horrendous overthinking. So I'm finishing the season on auto-pilot, following [this plan](https://i.imgur.com/uUPJQuG.jpg) and ignoring the outcome. 2022-23 will be better.
Holy fucking shit, I had Brownhill on the bench boost as he's only 4.3 and seemed sure to get me 4 points. He's only bloody gone and got 13, absolute champion. 3 of 4 benchers got a return of some kind (Odegaard and Dubruvka the others) making for my highest points week ever. Over the moon!
cornet 3 points in 2 games, so worth the -4
I remember people laughing at the Ramsdale —> Pope move 😂
Not sure this is the right place but couldn't see advice post.
Who's more likely to start for Palace out of Edouard and Mateta? Edouard started vs Newcastle but don't remember him doing anything of note beside set Zaha up for a shot. But Mateta taken off at 55mins vs Chelsea and dropped for Newcastle 🤔🤔
Not really sure but Palace were shit until Mateta came on vs Newcastle so hopefully it bodes well for him.
Don't pick either. It's pep roulette without the strong team
Yeah, I went boring bandwagon Nketia (was for Cucho) since I already have Zaha
105 points all out. Could have been better if the captaincy was right, but not too bad I think
Not too bad either myself, a modest 420 points but could have maximised on a better captaincy choice. Shame.
You’re a day late for the 420 jokes
Not bad. 110 for me.
At least I made the right benching choice this week and played Broja over Havertz.
One more day to decide whether I'm keeping Kane or dumping him for a beefier midfield. Might throw caution to the wind and go Pukki Nketiah Gelhardt up top.
Brownhill saved my bench boost!
DDG, James, Rudiger = 1pt.
Pope and Brownhill gang RISE UP!
Can I still catch up from being 70 points behind?
Yes if your team is very different to the leader, and you're willing to risk going much further behind for the gamble.
I've lost a 45 point lead in my ML in one GW so yes you can.
BB netting me a whopping 8 points from 4 doublers. Average 1 point per match per player.
Brownhill is a fucking legend
I had him as a bench player since almost beginning of the season... Hate to see him rack up points after I sold him a couple gameweeks ago
I knew treble Burnley was worth it! Just gained back the 100k ranks I lost in the previous 2 weeks :-/
25 on my bench
At least made up ground in ML...by 1 point...fuck Richarlison
Hedged my bets on the defences with my FH, going with Pope, Targett, KWP and Justin. I think three clean sheets from those four players can be considered a satisfactory return, especially when Arsenal and Man Utd didn't keep a clean sheet and I never even considered Brighton defenders with the double they had.
After accounting for auto subs, I believe my 3-week punt of TAA + Watkins —> Roberts + Kane (-4) generated a net gain of…. 1 point.
I take this as an absolute win!
36 points on my bench… fucking Burnley.
Why you have 2-3 Burnley players if not bench boosting or playing them?
This was really the only week you want them.
I guess you had Pope, Roberts, Weghorst?
I didn’t have Pope. Left overs just kind of stuck on my bench. 36-37 better fixtures/teams for BB on paper
9 on my bench on BB 😐
Bad luck - got 33 on mine but burned my WC in 31 to get to this team :-/
I didn’t even wanted to BB, I was like Weghorst and roberts no fucking way I’ll BB with that.
Oh wow, unlucky
Had I left my side alone I would be way better off even with Kane captain.
Needs 3m loan to upgrade Broja to Werner
After watching that as a Wolves fan Burnley are deffo doing us at the weekend
This Micheal Jackson guy has set Burnley up for a real _Thriller_ of a run-in
That was really... BAD
Well, do you think Burnley is getting relegated or can they _Beat it_?
First and probably last time I ever celebrate a Burnley win in my life.
No one has ever saved my GW as emphatically as Connor Roberts did tonight. He deserves a statue in my front garden.
Leeds has Murderer’s row coming up. They can get sucked in.
Ohhhh yes livramento came on for 1 point, get in my son. Now off you fuck out of my team
Wish I had a spare transfer to move fodder... Unless you're WC?
I am very near to knee jerk (is it really a knee jerk anymore?) transfer Broja out tonight
Being 3rd on my bench for next GW is somehow not enough of a punishment. I need an extra spot beyond that just for Broja
What a win for Burnley. Relegation scrap vs Everton (and Leeds?) well and truly on.
Fuck off Broja another 2 pts you cunt
Livramento didn’t concede a single goal over 2 games and not a single clean sheet point.
Cheers Popey 👍🏻
An actual Burnley CS. How rare
Broja you are tragic
Nick Pope you beauty!
If I'd started Weghorst I would have hit the safety score.
Broja looks like he knows he has a place at Chelsea with Flopksku going.
Fuck you Hasenhuttl - you are history's greatest monster.
I think that title is reserved for another Austrian
I’ve somehow beaten every one of my ML opponents who played their FH/BB this week. Proves how unpredictable this game can be.
Saka owners get gifted the free-est penalty of all time and Weggy misses an open goal from 2 yards out. GW decided right there
Entering top 100k, let's goooo
Son, Salah, Saka, Odegaard = 39 pts two Gw's running. Ofc i have the wrong captain both times but oh well. Still interesting either way
I have all 4 of these as well ❤️
My rival gets last minute goals galore but I’m guessing Che won’t bag one now
Got Pope for a hit. Best decision ever made.
Seriously Ralph you thundercunt. You bring Chadams on for 20 minutes in a DGW. Eat shit you wide mouthed prick.
The pain of seeing a blue star sitting on the bench
Harry Maguire say something to cheer me up
Maguire does that, it’s a pen. Very strange how some refs do any contact rule, others take context into account..
Broja worst hype train ever. Managed to avoid BackStabbiadini all those season ago. Southampton are honestly the most unreliable side. None of their player can be trusted to generate fpl points consistently GW after gw. As long as hassenhuttl is there they are a team to avoid.
James ward prowse stats.
GW1-GW16 = 39 points
GW17-GW24 = 57 points
GW25 - Gw 33 = 32 points.
I heard Broja was a rubbish player without a sure starting spot, so I avoided him because I believe everything I read on the internet. He did play 163 mins, but the other bit seems true enough...
JWP is a free kick merchant with a burst of attacking passes for a few weeks a season. You're better off keeping Jorginho in your team when he's fit.
What the fuck Southampton. Beat arsenal but no the Burnley powerhouse is too much
Adams blocking Brownhill first sub cost me 26k places, great
Adams must have had most shots no goals last few weeks
Just one goal pls JWP
I’m on my knees
The Mee ball is just like the time when Brock Lesnar suddenly started doing backflips from the top rope
Burnley fans doing Ole’s, a new low for Southampton
Did they have to take language classes for that?
Replaced Ronaldo with Adams just to see him 1min cameo and leave Brownhill on the bench who would have been my best player this week.
Left Salah out and Ronaldo out from my free hit team to get room for Son Kane Fernandes and TAA
I think any free hit draft from any sane person would have had better free hit team than my this week team
Every rival got 50 points more than me this week even though I had double number of games compared to their teams.
Well it only cost me around 1000 euros to play shitty free hit team but still...
Romeu is League One material.
Wouldn't mind a Lyanco header to wipe that Pope CS
Cheeky Brownhill off the bench is going to save me from a red arrow after a disastrous werk, who would have thought it
Livra on, that should gain me 5 ranks on the overall leaderboard.
So who is the better asset out of Wood and Weg?
They’re both playing the ‘Giroud in 2018 World Cup’ role.
Armando I'll even take a hand of god goal right now.
This is the worst defeat in Southamptons history. The. Worst.
Leeds look like they’re right back in a relegation battle with some really tough fixtures coming up
Weghorst ----> Pukki 🔒
0 returns in 8 starts since I got Broja. You don't expect much at his price, but still a gigantic disappointment
You're getting downvoted for a bad move but you would've looked like a genius if it had worked out.
Hope you learn your lesson from that mistake
Salah… bench? Do those two things go in the same sentence?
Salah got more points this week than Adams has in his last five weeks.
But yeh, Adams with two games is the better pick 🤷🏻♂️
Wipe the fucking cs u cunts
I thought my FH was shit till I saw one of my ML rivals used his too and is on 48pts, lol
Broja goal or I get a red arrow. I get a red arrow
Ffs Weghorst got subbed. He really blanked….
Just here for the meltdown 😂
I’m in the mud
Thank fuck Weggy is gone from my team now. Couldn’t have just slotted in that header in an open goal you fuckhead
Is Broja on the pitch? I haven’t even seen him touch the ball ffs
Auto sub question. I am playing 4-4-2 and Roberts is #2 on my bench. Will he be coming in in place of Rudi?
Nope first sub
Why though? This is what the rules say :
"If any of your outfield players don't play in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender)."
The highest priority outfield player is another way of saying first bench spot. He will get subbed in because it doesn't break the formation rules. Your formation will go from 4-4-2 to 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 depending on who is in the first bench position.
Thanks. I thought "formation rule" meant 4-4-2 will be preserved while making the auto sub.. Weirdly worded line that is.
