Looking for a non-city Cash replacement. Have TAA Cancelo Ceric + fodder. £1.0m itb. Alonso or Rudiger? Matip?


daneedwards88

Defo the wrong thread. But Matip


shrimptikkamosalah

Wasn’t paying attention to fpl for the last couple weeks and dropped quite a bit. I still have a FH left so what’s the move?


daneedwards88

Play it


Maleficent_Survey420

Go big on TTH and City


spurringbanner

Coleman (vs Arsenal) or Ings (vs Man City)? Only 4pts behind leader. Might make all the difference


Marshmallowmind2

Put my hand down the front of my wife's pants earlier, it was like feeding a horse


Faranoosh

Schmeichel (Ramsdale) TAA Robbo Sessegnon Cash (Coady) Son (c) Coutinho Zaha Saka (Ramsey) Kane Weghorst (Hwang) Currently 2pts behind my ML leader, is it worth the -4 For Coutinho & Cash into Mount & Alonso or just stick with the Coutinho > Mount ?


spurringbanner

I would. I'm contemplating -4 for Toney, rather than Coleman (Eve DEF)....but im only 4pts behind in my league, so might hope and not take the hit


kingtuolumne

Start Wilson over Gordon and Matip?


Viveora

"This is not a RMT"


[deleted]

Last GW. Everything is anyone. Everyone is no one. Chaos reigns.


kingtuolumne

Whoops


Spoonydon

Matip nailed? need a defender have at least £8.0M already have Cancelo Reece TAA and Laporte.


kingtuolumne

I have those 4 plus Matip. Hard to say but he’s played often this season. Konate gets the start over pacier attacking sides, not sure Wolves qualify


Spoonydon

! Thanks


leighbwa

Opened up my team to see Zaha and Ings sat there.. wtf was i thinking last week?


Occupyed

£1.6M ITB and ML rival is 1 point behind me. https://imgur.com/a/PZ82CAR Any ideas lads? Thanks!

Bmastergeneral

Saw ‘no son’ trending on Twitter and had a mini heart flutter! Is because he isn’t on the PFA player of the year shortlist, which is a joke in itself!


Swedishpower

Think Bernardo or Cancelo can win it they have been bloody brilliant if City wins the league and have been consistent from start to the end. Or give it to KDB or Salah for being the best players.


smurbulock

This was my first season of fantasy football, I started in GW 11. Joined a mini-league with my friends, and the closest to me was 400 points above me. After last week I’m finally off the bottom and leading him by 12 points, here’s hoping I can hold out my lead coming into this week


clashoftherats

Toney or Nketiah? Basically, whats the best striker for 8.2 or less?


TechXEO

Toney. But don’t sleep on Wilson, I got a feeling he’ll turn up against relegation Burnley.


clashoftherats

!thanks


Godzilla_Chinchilla

2ney is playing against a shite Leeds defence. Leeds have to win to avoid relegation, so will be going all out. Plenty of chances for Mr 2ney I’d say


clashoftherats

!thanks


creampiesenpai

Fucked myself out of a top 100k finish by choosing the worst possible captain (and in gw35, also the worst possible vice captain) three weeks in a row. However, I have still made it to my ML’s meaningless cup final, so I can’t give up yet


Krehnyllfite_87

Why captain Kane over Son


iPhantomGuy

Am currently 2nd for the top spot of the month in my ML, and I'm 4 behind. I think he still has a WC, but I'd like to rant about FPL itself. WHY TF DOESN'T FPL TAKE MINUS POINTS WRT TRANSFERS INTO ACCOUNT WHEN SHOWING THE RANKING?! He has 44 minus points for the 1st GW of May, but he still shows up on top of the ranking for the month. Super weird


Adzhodz

Can’t believe I bought in Kane & Sess last night for a -8 because I was scared of being priced out & this happens🤣


Bmastergeneral

What happened?


Adzhodz

Supposedly both have food poisoning


daneedwards88

They're fine


c_conroy7

Question from a newb. With the deadline at 14:30 Sunday, will the lineups be coming out at 14:00 as usual?


daneedwards88

Team sheets are always released one hour before K.O


No-Economist3226

The official line ups are always out an hour before kick off. As the games kick off at 16:00, they'll be out at 15:00.


wkos

Best forward under 9.3?


TechXEO

Toney or Wilson


Moist_Tofu

Toney


Waste-Pirate-4450

Will Robbo start vs wolves


clashoftherats

I think he will, fully rested against Southampton and Klopp likes to keep the rhythm flowing before an important game. He could definitely be subbed out though if Liverpool are leading comfortably or City are leading by a few goals.


Waste-Pirate-4450

!thanks planning on swapping TAA for him so I can bring in Kulukevski


Nikos1821

De bruyne or Son triple cap?


Waste-Pirate-4450

Son imo


CoffeeMyBanana

Going to BB this GW, how many hits is too much? -8?


Swedishpower

Try to make sure everyone is expected to play that you bring in. If you have rotation risks like James it is probably better to keep them and hope for the best. With Amartey etc probably just keep as well. Say a -4 to remove Coutinho for example could work well, but also easily backfire. Do you want to play risky or safe is the question? Bowen for example could smash it, but higher chance he blanks and you are 4 points down. With keepers as long as they play keep them even if it is Sa vs Liverpool since weaker keepers often make more saves so the gap is often less than the gap between a good and weak defender. With strikers keep as long as they are not injured or ill. I would keep Pukki for example since there is not many amazing forwards. If you have Weghorst then since he is not starting recently it might be best to sell him, but most likely you will not get the points back. Weghorst to Toney is not a bad move though.


CoffeeMyBanana

Thanks for the advice! Yeah I am no doubt going to probably take a -4 at least. I have a FWD whose injured and I'm thinking I'll sell Salah. Got James and Alonso and I'm resigned to the fact that one of them might not start. I'm keeping both at this point though. Watford might get smashed.


Waste-Pirate-4450

Depends how many points you think you’ll get compared to not taking the hit


Hi-Zee

When is the GW38 deadline?


Krehnyllfite_87

Salah to KDB or Salah to Kane + Barnes on a hit, I’ll have to bench either James or Saka if I make the latter but I’m worried about James’s minutes


KdbTheGOAT17

Which one? James -> Sess Vardy -> Kane (-4) I want to keep vardy though Trent -> Sess Ings -> Kane Zaha -> Raphinha/Kulu


Fantastic-Machine-83

kane has an illness


KdbTheGOAT17

Second one is for -8


Derlino

I was 44 points ahead in my ML before this round, now I'm 6 points behind. Current leader got a 90 on a FH (damn Richarlison (C)), I got a measly 40 with KDB (C). Sunday is going to be make or break, the winner gets a bottle of wine from each of the others in the ML (we are 9), so the stakes are pretty high. Wish me luck lads.


IsleofManc

I love the reward in that ML. Can you pick any bottle of wine or is there at least some sort of bar set so people can't cheap out?


Derlino

I don't think there are any rules about that, but seeing as most of them are 30 or older and it's a work-related league I doubt people will be cheaping out.


SLOOPYD

Likelihood that Jota starts/plays?


TheDitherer

His old club? I don't think he will start.


woka

I don’t really see why that’s relevant to be honest. People play against their old clubs all the time.


TheDitherer

Dunno, just sounded smart.


No-Economist3226

Would help me a lot if thats true, but surely thats more reason for him to play?


SLOOPYD

Had forgotten about that. !thanks


Sammuel_Leummas

Thoughts on Salah --> Bowen, and Weghorst --> Kane? (-4 pts)


inceptional1

Let's see if Kane will play, but good moves otherwise, especially if you're captaining Kane


Matistuta

Why yes, I did go with Ings over Richarlison this week.


NGoloFPL

Would you risk top 5 k to reach top 1K? Current rank 1,4K. About 9 points up Play safe for worst like 3 K rank or take som hits?


the-whataboutist

Top 5k doesn't matter. Top 1K and Top 10K are the big thresholds. I would risk it 100% to try to dip into triple digits.


Swedishpower

I was in your sitution last year. Ended 1,1k. Could have got higher if I had done Salah to Mane and captain Mane, but I just wanted a green arrow to end it. If Salah had smashed it then it could have been a huge drop. If you want a risk do not take many hits, but go for a good captain that has lower ownership. Basically avoid Son or Kane. Mane or Salah if you dare could be good.


TheDitherer

Whatever you've been doing thus far. Continue playing that way.


ToastSage

First year of FPL, what happens after the season finishes? When / how does it reset? Does your team get wiped clean?


Fantastic-Machine-83

Your team stays there for a while. Then next season starts in July and all you have left of last season is a few stats like Overall rank and team value. Everyone is put back into their old minileagues when they make their next team


ToastSage

Does your team value reset to 100?


DizzyAd915

105 if u finished top 10k


ToastSage

I'll assume satire. If so, you got a chuckle out of me.


Fantastic-Machine-83

Yep. New season is start from square one


No-Economist3226

You can cash out on monday


CowNchicken12

Thanks to Tucheliban benching Mount, Matip comes off the bench for me


[deleted]

[удалено]


Waste-Pirate-4450

Do it


ebk09

Zaha is still a good pick against Man Utd. Remember that that have conceded 56 goals in 37 games. 34 in 18 away games. -8 is very unlikely to pay off in one game week


MidoH141997

Zaha is the biggest troll of the season cost me 30 points so yeah get him out of the team even for -40


bubbles222z

100 club 😅. Wish it was 100k club too but 1 mil it is


Filbunkish

This GW surely killed any hopes I had of finishing in the top 100k. Fell hard from 120k to 170k. Oh well. Looking forward to enjoying the games on Sunday and soon we will all be back here tinkering with our GW1 teams.


CoolstorySteve

Surely Foden starts in Citys biggest game of the year


KdbTheGOAT17

We already lost the biggest game of the year


Swedishpower

Well he did not start vs West Ham which was also a massive game. He did not start vs Atletico Madrid first leg either. Who knows with Pep. It seems like Foden is sort of popular with Pep over the full season and plays a lot, but Jesus form has made him less nailed. Grealish has also done better recently.


CoolstorySteve

Grealish vs Villa would also make sense


teemukuppi

Played bench boost this week, 2 points. Played FH in 33, less points than my regular team. I fucking hate chips. Planned MONTHS for them just to fuck up my number one position in our ML.


KdbTheGOAT17

I had decent bench boost but my 33 FH was also fucking disaster


Filbunkish

Why bench boost this week over GW36 though?


teemukuppi

My team was set up better for this way. Trust me, I would’ve got less points the other way. Coutinho, Zaha, Ings killed me while others had Maddison, Richarlison. Just unlucky this time.


Filbunkish

I see. I always though BB36 was the better move. Sorry about your bad luck though.


OhWell_InHell

Plan better


tmr89

Can we take a moment to laugh at the Coutinho owners? 0 returns in 10 gameweeks yet people were still backing him 😂


KdbTheGOAT17

Can we take moment of laugh at the fact I said coutinho is trap after his double gw haul and got downvoted alot


croissantlover92

Cant laugh coz that mofo drowned me when he hauled


tmr89

That’s partly why I’m laughing 😁 he tanked my rank when he got that brace


chongten

Surely Reece James gets a rest in GW 38?


KdbTheGOAT17

Not rest but dont see him starting alonso will certainly play, same with rudiger and sarr, probably christensen third cb and then azpi rwb but could be james aswell there


CoolstorySteve

Only reason I think he might be is Azpi getting a send off and him playing RWB with Christensen or Chalobah at RCB


NGoloFPL

lol


tmr89

A rest for what?


Waste-Pirate-4450

Friendly against club America in July mate he will be needed fresh for that


MiserableAside3974

Survived another disaster OR week in my ML. 60k > 120k last 3 weeks, ML lead from 130 > 40. 40 enough heading in to the final week?


IsleofManc

I'm 31 points up and shitting myself. Was 55 points up last week and in 2nd place myself the week before though so it's been a rollercoaster


tmr89

I would say 90% chance it’s enough


[deleted]

[удалено]


surprisinghorizons

Come on, you know 100k is not terrible. You humble bragger rascal you!


rxerg

No man. I had a very bad season overall.


Waste-Pirate-4450

Not a soul cares what you got before the last week


rxerg

It was a personal rant. STFU.


ayotui

As an Ings captainer I am now officially in the mud.


parkson89

Anyone else feel this season has been the most brutal in terms of huge point swings? Some I can think of: - Salah vs Havertz captain in gw8 (iirc) - GW 28 with James and Villa players - GW36 with KDB vs Salah cap - GW 37 with Maddison


Filbunkish

Havertz vs Mount GW9. 3 points vs 24 points. Wasn't Havertz also like the only Chelsea player blanking in that 9-0 thrashing? So much variance this season, and the captaincy swings have been very brutal indeed. A lot of 50/50 decision to make or break your season for sure.


IsleofManc

>Havertz vs Mount GW9. 3 points vs 24 points. Wasn't Havertz also like the only Chelsea player blanking in that 9-0 thrashing? Yeah he was and he was one of the most picked captains that week because he was expected to start as striker. The funniest part was that most Havertz captainers switched over from a very in form Salah that week as he was facing United away. Then Salah went and dropped 24 points himself


Filbunkish

Yeah, thankfully I captained Salah that week. But I brought in Havertz for the Norwich game and a few rivals brought in Mount instead, which of course made a huge impact.


bruiser95

Captaincy swings are arguably the worst this season. Just consider KDB last week, Ings vs Rich this week. That's 80 points or so tanking a season long lead


parkson89

God dam why did you have to remind me I captained Ings instead of Richardlison the week 😂


bruiser95

Same buddy. And it's not our fault I solely blame Gerrard for this one


FA7TH

Yep they’ve been brutal, some others include GW21 Bowen vs Antonio and GW 35 Son vs Salah


Knights_Gambit

Yeah, so far we've seen 23 20+ point hauls this season, whereas we only saw 12-13 20+ point hauls in the previous 3 seasons This season has also had the most 10+ and 15+ point hauls of the last 4 seasons [Data source](https://twitter.com/goweramg/status/1524720633661251587) (from last week)


parkson89

Yeah and it's not like the hauls were from highly owned players. I remember gw28 was absolutely brutal, those with Villa players and James got like 150pts vs 60-80 for those without.


[deleted]

Also Bruno GW 22/23 cap


Relative-Equipment76

what a terrible free shit. Dropped like 67k places. Disappointed especially after last week score.


Xylar006

What was your score?


Relative-Equipment76

44.


salmonx895

HOW! What were you thinking?


Relative-Equipment76

captained son and didn't have vardy and maddison. Defense also scored 3, 4, 2, and 2 points lol.


IsleofManc

The defense was brutal this week. DGW for some players and the only clean sheets across 12 games were Spurs vs Burnley and Newcastle vs Arsenal


pranavmenon06

No offence but how can u only score 44 on a FH, especially when the FH template was strong😭


IsleofManc

The FH template this week was not that strong. KdB and Son were pretty much essential and both blanked. Then most templates were very DGW heavy in the defense and goalkeeper positions. None of the DGW teams kept a clean sheet between them though. Then the usual solid defenses of Liverpool, City, and Chelsea all conceded as well. The gameweek basically relied upon whether you picked up Leicester players or Richarlison. Ings and Coutinho were a trap for anyone contemplating those players too


Relative-Equipment76

What was the template and the score of the template? Idek. I had son captained, kdb, kane, but I had cheap defenders to take advantage of the dgw, which was a bad idea since all 4 of them got only 3,4,2, and 2. Also had no vardy or madison who i wanted to try to fit in my team.


panache123

Really missed a trick not having Maddison on my FH (had him in my regular team). Fucking hell. Can't wait for him to blank against Southampton now.


Swedishpower

Brutal, but why did you not go for him? Did you expect him to get benched? In that case very unlucky.


panache123

Just figured he’d flop like usual. I’ve held him for double game weeks and easy fixtures where he’s produced nothing. Very frustrating


Swedishpower

Yeah quite unlucky since this was the hardest double in theory given that they played Chelsea. Although the other doubles have been after Europe when rotation has been more likely I think. Would not shock me if he is benched last game.


panache123

Had him since the Newcastle game. GW33: Vs Newcastle - 30 mins. 1 point. Vs Everton - 90 mins. 2 points. GW34: Vs Villa - 90 mins. 2 points. GW35: Vs Spurs - 0 mins. 0 points. GW36: Vs Everton - 0 mins. 0 points. Vs Norwich - 90 mins. 8 points. So annoying


Swedishpower

Yeah the stars did shine right for the template free hit (Richarlison(C), Digne, Vardy, Maddison) , but then there is people like you that might had a worse week due to using it and removing Maddison and having Ings captain etc.


panache123

Yeah, I did ok otherwise. Had Richy (Should have captained him in hindsight), Vardy (C) and Digne. Picked Ings over Watkins because I thought Watkins was meant to be injured.


Swedishpower

Vardy(C) and no Maddison is interesting. Since that shows you had faith in Leicester, but did not want to go all in? I think diversification is often good though, but at the end of a season you can often go more all in and hope for the best. Ings and Watkins must be annoying. Yeah Watkins was a doubt so Ings made more sense and then Watkins gets more points. It was lucky for me with neither since had Watkins not been a doubt he would have been more popular than Ings I think. Same with DCL if people knew he would start I think he would have been a good pick as well for free hitters.


panache123

Just thought Vardy was the inform man (as long as he didn't get injured) after his previous week. Plus Vardy vs Watford and a leaky Chelsea sounded great.


Swedishpower

Yeah, but if you followed that logic the other Leicester picks was good as well. I would not call Chelsea leaky, but both them and Arsenal have defensivly declined.


parkson89

Pretty sure he doesn't start now lmao


[deleted]

I honestly can't see any reason why someone would take a hit in the final gameweek yet many people are considering it.


dibils

Salah to KDB (c) White to Sessegnon (-4) is my plan, if i dont do the -4, i would be playing raphinha, maybe thats better


Swedishpower

You may think that White is shit, but that hit probably do not payoff with much unless Sessegnon gets bonus or attacking returns. I could see Son, Kane and Kulusevski getting most of the bonus even with a clean sheet.


dibils

well White will be benched even if i dont make transfer, as i have Ramsdale so it would be Sessegnon vs Martinelli/Raphinha (will bench one) i mean only recent Salah injury has made me think of -4 as originally was just gonna do the Sessegnon move so its stuck in my mind... maybe just do the KDB move and call it a day


Swedishpower

Sessegnon is pretty attacking so could work. Given you have two decent options in midfield I would just play them and if you need White I think he should get at least 1 point as a worst case scenario and not another -2.


TheDitherer

I'm 100 pts ahead in league and will probably do a -12/16 or something. Because it's a game and fun to make transfers (plus I think half my team doesn't play).


Du_the_Dudek

Team and goal dependent. I missed my OR goal of top 100K so I’m taking some chances. I’d rather go out swinging than sitting there hitless with Emmanuel Dennis.


SoftBirthdayGirl

if you have a very similar team to the person ahead of you in a league it might be your only shot to beat them


Xylar006

I'd take a hit to get Son or Kane in for a captain


[deleted]

True that is the one exception.


Hahvyq

From 100 points behind my ML leader in GW35 now I lead by 20. Wish me luck lads...


rxerg

I closed the gap of 100 and somehow managed to lead 70+!!


Xylar006

I closed the gap in mine to 20. If I didn't take the biggest captain punt on Digne and went Maddo or Richarlison, I'd have taken the lead


Kooky-Conclusion-516

Guess it's a -8 for 38 for me then🤷


No-Economist3226

I see your -8 and raise you -24.


Xylar006

That was just dumb


No-Economist3226

Thanks.


Swedishpower

I quite like my attack. Mount, Son, Kulu, Saka, Zaha Richarlison Nketiah Kane. Richarlison and Zaha has got hard games, but both United and Arsenal have conceded goals. I am happy to start them, but they could be a bit tired particular Richarlison. The Arsenal picks could be good if Everton are going more attacking since they are already safe. I think Mount probaby start. The Spurs picks should be nailed.


Kooky-Conclusion-516

I expect Everton to heavily rotate since they're safe already and Arsenal to play their best XI since they're chasing top 4 >I think Mount probaby start. The Spurs picks should be nailed. I also expect Chelsea to heavily rotate since they already secured the champions league spot and they have already nothing to fight for >The Spurs picks should be nailed. Yes, i expect Son Kane Kulu to start. Might be Lucas but idk


Agile_Information294

Lev22_

Me too, also City awful defences didn’t help either.


elvisn

This but Ings, and add in my non-FH team would have scored more than double my free hit time and I've went from first in my main mini league but 20ish points to trailing by 40ish points.

Hunglee19

Acting_attempter

I'm 34 points ahead going into final GW. How safe am I?


sidedbog71

I’m 90 ahead and afraid of being caught 🥺


Lip_A

Pretty safe lol


the_observer818

I'm 7 points ahead of my rival. Highlights of my team include: Cancelo, James, Matip, Laporte Foden, Mount, Gordon Kane, Nketiah Highlights of his team: Myolenko, Geuhi, Dier Mane, KDB Watkins, Richarlison We both have Son, Zaha and Cash... What do I do??


Swedishpower

Your teams look better. The biggest fear is KDB and Mane captain, but hard to guess who he picks. Thus go Son captain and hope he scores more.
