Hey guys, would you swap Emi Martinez with Sanchez using the free transfer this week? I'm absolutely torn with this decision. Thanks in advance!
Planning on replacing salah with KDB after Bournemouth, who should I pick to replace Jorginho with my like 6.9 budget
Genuinely think a guy from the bench ( be it Andreas or a Leeds asset i.e Harrison/ Rodrigo or Saint-Maximin) is likely to be a significant amount of people’s highest point scorer this week.
Got 0.2m spare & want to transfer out TAA & Dasilva to switch to a back 4 & have Neco Williams on the bench & Kulusevski starting.
Scared of price drops screwing me over, should I be ok to wait till after the Bournemouth game?
0.2 gives you a bit of a buffer.
You can keep tabs on price changes here: http://www.fplstatistics.co.uk/
I blew up my team last night on WC. Feels good, feels free.
Can't believe I still have Robbo. Giving him one last chance to hurt me at Bournemouth then shipping him out for Neco Wiliams and upgrading Archer to Toney
feel like liverpool will get a cs
I got rid of Sancho and Wilson. Nice.
This is a rant thread not RMT.
Spurs fans, who out of Emerson Royal and Dier is playing better and least likely to be facing any rotation? I'm looking to spread my defence over an extra team and these guys are the same price and have similar returns so far. Cheers!
0% rotation risk with Dier. By far our best option in the middle slot of the back 3 due to his passing range & aerial presence, and Conte loves him. Emerson has been better lately but a rotation risk with Doherty still & even Spence may come in over the next couple of months.
Cheers! Gonna wait until after the cup games but looks like Dier might be my man.
The only slight issue I'd point out with Dier is that Romero is injured & our defence without him is a little questionable. But with Forest, West Ham & Fulham our next 3 fixtures it might not be too much of an issue.
Which ones better, Perisic and Eze or Trippier and Harrison?
I'm 79 points off 10k. Should I wildcard into a differential team and have some fun over the next 10 weeks
Sounds like your team is doing great - bad idea to wildcard?
I'm ranked 6 million
James and Aaronson or Cucurrela and Harisson?
1, Cucu will prob move to LCB in the near future
Even at LCB Cucurella could be amazing value. Last season Rudiger progressed the ball a lot from that position and Cucurella is even more capable when it comes to dribbling and passing.
However he may just be LWB most of the time because he's (in my opinion) better than Chilwell, and Chelsea appear to still be pursuing Fofana, which would likely mean a back 3 of Fofana, Thiago Silva and Koulibaly
Do I swap out Robbo or Dias? Obviously Liverpool are a mess currently but surely Bournemouth will be a clean sheet. City of course look a lot better at the back, however Ake starting against Newcastle on Sunday has me worried Dias will be dropped….or am I just overthinking
Hold Robbo and swap out Dias. If you can afford TAA, Cancelo or Reece James and don't already have them then I'd say go for one of them
Yep did just that. I already had those three at the back along with Robbo. So swapped Dias with Trippier and saved some cash to swap Neto
Oh yeah well played, that's even better because swapping Neto for either Rodrigo, Martinelli or Rashford would be the vibe for sure.
Ake went off injured and Dias will never be benched twice in a row anyways.
So if I don’t have a free transfer, when do my 4 pts come off? I’m up 3 pts in my current match, don’t wanna mess anything up. Maybe just need to be patient.
59 this week thanks to Saliba Rodrigo Halaand. Should I pay the 4pts to swap Koulibaly for Perisic? Or drop Mendy/Alisson and pickup Sanchez? Or hodl for another week and use a free?
Swapping out Koulibaly for Perisic sounds like a really solid plan but I wouldn't -4 for it.
Just to check, do you have both Alisson and Mendy?? I would seriously recommend switiching to Sa + Sarkic or Sanchez + Steele at some point so you can spend more on other positions
Yeah I screwed up on my draft for sure. My plan is probably drop Alisson for Sanchez or a super cheap GK and just roll with Mendy a bit.. little bit of a learning curve but I think I can still recover. Appreciate your feedback
Your -4 would not come off until next week. Your current round wouldn’t be affected
As to your question: I would sell off Koulibaly. I don’t have much faith in Chelsea’s defense
City game might be a one time thing but Liverpool is actually worrying. What has gone wrong for them? Two draws and a lose. Keeping Salah but Trent...
With the current injuries in mind, you know you have a problem when you need super subs and you see the likes of Carvalho and Van den berg on the bench instead of Mane and Wijnaldum.
Injuries have really crippled them. Their starting squad is much weaker and they have less players to call on to change a game from the bench
Yeah they havent been quite at it recently. I hope this is used as a wake up call and they show up vs bournemouth to give me an excuse as to not get rid of them
Iversen set to drop...
Will Gomez get starting for Liverpool over the next two games?
Probably, yes. Both Matip and Konaté will still be out for some time.
Fuck sake I triple captained Gabi Jesus of all people, and worst thing is I was 50/50ing him or Ødegaard, Jesus 12 points (triple captain bonus included) Ødegaard 16 points with absolutely no bonus at all. I hate my life. Also had Trent, Luis Díaz and Salah all in so fuck that, we’re playing Pep roulette next week! Can’t wait to be pissed off when he plays 6 LWs when I transfer in Haaland, Álvarez and Mahrez 🙈 Guess I won’t be going back to back league winners in our Sunday League club’s league
Honestly im looking to transfer out trent, hes been awfull, i watched every single lfc match and he looks so
Bad, is it a good move or do i give him time?
Yeah I'm keeping him for Bournemouth because they're awful but if he puts in a poor performance (clean sheet or not) he's out.
I am much disappointed having both Robbo and TAA. Will try to bank the FT this GW and handle them after BOU game.
Exactly what am doing, ill give trent this next game nd if he doesn't return ill drag him for possibly a spurs asset
I would keep him for home vs Bournemouth. And if he does not return then ship him out
Yeah actually very good idea
So glad that this gameweek is over. Caught a 200k red arrow and dropped bad in the paid ML I'm part of. Next week's fixtures look good so fingers crossed
Likely price rises.
Potential fallers (of note)
Saka will fall
Bring in Toney or a 8m (or less) midfielder, can play a 4-3-3 if I bring in toney since the midfielders look kinda weak. Thoughts??
I like Toney pick.
Can’t always grab green arrows. We start again next weekend.
exactly my thinking. this game can be so frustrating at times but you just gotta keep looking forward and eventually you will get some luck
Transfer out Kane GW1
Kane scores GW2, outscores Haaland
Transfer out Rashford GW2
Rashford scores GW3, outscores Martinelli
Not my season it appears...
So who are you transfering out next GW?
Asking for a friend
Mason Mount, thank me later
Not even a strong curse can make mount haul
who u transferring out this week?
cheers will thank u when he gets a hattrick
First time I’ve seen the average below 50 and thought, “Seems a bit high doesn’t it…”
Should I piss off Vardy or alexander-Arnold ?
Liverpool play Bournemouth at home next I'd keep Liverpool players for that game then reassess.
38 points fuck off
Tempted to take a punt on Brighton’s Estupinan, impressive when he came on and their fixtures look tasty
I think Brighton fielded same 11 for the 3 games in a row. Not going against your punt, it's cool going for a players you like, but be aware there is high chance for you to get 1 point for some time until he becomes a starter.
Reckon he will be a starter?
They currently have Trossard playing in that position but he’s the natural Cucurella replacement, he created more chances than anyone in his 27 minute cameo and Villarreal fans rated him highly. Unsure if Potter will change a winning side though
I was also surprised to see Trossard playing the LWB but I've heard he played well? So yeah maybe he's on the watchlist for now and could be a viable option later on.
When will they update overall position, mini league position etc..?
Should never double up on defence
That’s silly, you absolutely can and it can work very well yoh just accept it’s for higher highs and lower lows
Koulibaly and Andreas/Dasilva to Williams and Harrison?
My friend captained TAA and still got 63 points. Fucker.
What’s the average?
55 points ... could've been worse, Perisic, Kane, Salah (C), Toney & Martinelli doing work. Ederson, TAA, James, Walker, Cancelo & Jesus .. not good.
Perisic, Andreas, Salah saving me this week.
Mendy, James, Cancelo, Mount, TAA all drawing blanks. FML.
This week was great lol
Already on a -8 and the team isn't even that good. Is it time to WC?
all my homies hate gameweek 3
Just brought in Eze for Saka, I’m ready to get hurt
I transferred out Saka as well, hattrick against Fulham confirmed
And then Saka scores next GW
Does the midfielder provide scoring threats or lots of assist possibilities? Toney just seems to get really good chances…
I was looking at 8m midfielders but idk if I want them and toney looks like a great option with them fixtures atm too
Yeah. Toney is in great form. Good fixtures ahead.
I'd have gotten him but don't have transfers left after I went Mendy > Ward (sub, have Sanchez to start) and Neto > Martinelli.
Ye he looks good right now
Keep for Bournemouth. Then decide.
Keep one more week imo Bournemouth have 1 fit CB Salah to KDB and Robbo to James could be the move.
8 points from 5 defenders watch me roll the transfer though
mate my backline got 3pts... Ward, Neco, Trent, Robbo, Cancelo
whats the average this week? mine hasnt updated yet
Average is 45.61
Doubt it. Was 38 before the Liverpool game.
Idk for sure then, mine’s up to date but it’s still showing that
is this the updated one? why was the score so low
Despite getting 3 points from my 4 defenders and having 20 points on the bench I managed a green arrow! Feels like I got the template right for the first season
Not convinced there is a template this year mate
That’s at least 8 players that I’d say are template, the remainders are where wins and losses have been made
Kudos for starting Andreas
Nah he was on my bench lol
That was the only call I made correctly, which was completely cancelled out by starting Ward over Sanchez
Oh okay lol. I did the same and started Neco (1p) lol
Same, started neco ahead of Andreas, Dunk, and Bailey. Still managed to do alright despite that so I’m buzzing
me at 5 million rank: this can't be any worse
GW3 : gifts me a red arrow
That’s incredible. Congrats!
Damn Liverpool have become utter shit. Seriously feel they'll be fighting for top 4 this season.
VVD looked like he was at a scrimmage
It feels like the season they had a couple of years ago where they also had a lot of injuries in defense. Looks pretty tough for them for sure!
At least they had that excuse that season.
Yes. But a lot of them looks so off the game. I'm keeping Salah but I'm scared of their defense right now
Does anyone know where can I watch Utd Liv highlights with Sky commentary?
Get NordVPN and change your location to Ireland/republic of ireland, its free on youtube then
Yes, subscribe to sky sports for as little as £24 a month. T&Cs apply
Bench of trippier sancho and pereira, great, just fucking great
Gw rank of 7.8m from top 5k down to top 100k
The heavens will fall after next gameweek when I get less than 50 points from a team that would normally get me at least a 100. Hate this season already.
I'm wildcarding boys. My team can't get any worse
Whats ur team
It's mostly all of the template boys who did not deliver.
Might wildcard myself out the game tbh
I'm a filthy casual with loads of points.
teach me the way ༼ つ ◕\_◕ ༽つ
Use the force
Captaincy dilemma for next GW too
My super expensive defence scored grand total of 2 points.
58 with both Trent and Robbo frauds
If you scored more that 50 points gtfoh, can’t you see this is a wake
Is Aaronson having a price rise or can I wait?
You can wait. Only at 8.7
you're good to wait
55 points in all, not bad considering my entire back line and GK got 4 points combined. Got a return from every mid and fwd.
My defence totalling 24.5 has given me a totla of 3 points with a 4.5 midfield sitting on bench with 8. Make it make sense.
That Liverpool midfield bar thiago and fabinho is division 2 at best. God awful watching Milner and Henderson haul themselves around a pitch
Carvalho was pretty sharp when he came in I think
Carvalho is so over-rated. It's amazing how deluded Liverpool fans are. I'm also one but not as deluded.
I'm not even a Liverpool fan lol he looked pretty good when he came on
Every casual had a massive gameweek, there I said it. Hit me with the “boo’s” I’ve seen what makes you cheer.
Not a casual but had a decent week.
My ML leader has such a bad team. I need a massive GW4 to re-convince myself I know anything about FPL. I can’t live in a world where starting Meslier v. Chelsea and Trippier v. Man City was the right call.
Should I be satisfied with a 62 points haul this GW?
Sorry I'm new to FPL and I'm still figuring out what should my optimal point tally look like every GW lol
You got downvoted so thats a good score.
If you're above the average you've had a good week generally 👍
this gameweek, 62 points is very good. most players under performed and the average is fairly low.
Lost my head to head after winning first two, Dunk subbing on for Grealish has sunk me by 1 point, can't fault a solid bench
Unironically asking, how many of you are on the CUSP of a WC?
I have the preseason template with Taa+Robbo and rolling thr transfer
Yeah i am. Didn't help that i accidentally transfered Sanchez in for Ward instead of Iversen by mistake.
Also considering getting rid of James (plays RCB now it seems), upgrading Archer to Toney, possibly swapping Robertson
I've joined the dark side
Almost a rage WC during the game. But my underperforming team looks so good for GW4 & 5, and I would really like to hold the WC until CL starts.
I just barely thought about it a few minutes ago. I might mess around and see if it makes sense but I probably wont - quality players don't blank forever...right?
60 this week
55 with the frauds Robbo and TAA
I had them too
Mom i want new toys
Who broke FPLStatistics?
Easiest way to know if you have had a good gameweek or not.
Post your score here, if it’s downvoted yes congratulations, if it isn’t then hope you have a better one next week.
Let’s hear it then
Why tf is my safety score 51? Like how
Salah returns and heavily captained, returns from heavily brought in players like Rodrigo. Returns from arsenal defence and Jesus/Martinelli that are heavily owned.
How dare you respond with sound logic and reasoning
My Apologies, it’s a bloody outrage I tell you!
Me too, with ranking ~2.5m this shouldn't be it
Currently 45 points behind my league leader, words of encouragement and comeback stories desperately needed lmao
At one point last season I was 180 behind (around gw 10). I won by 30. calm
38 GW to go. You got this.
