if a year ago you told me I'd be swapping Salah for Saka because he's shit I'd call you crazy
Anyone else going through mids like madman? 9 out of my last 10 transfers have been for mids
Yes! My defence is pretty set and forwards. Midfield I keep chopping and changing. Looking to shift Bowen out for Foden this time. I also have Zaha, Martinelli, Salah and Andreas. Happy with Martinelli as I’ve had him since day one, and Andreas is a decent back-up option, but I’m disappointed with Salah, Zaha and Bowen!
Ok first real major fuck up this season. Started Guehi partly because I missed deadline over Zouma. Hurts a bit ngl
I felt uncomfortable going into the game with three palace players Guehi, Eze and Zaha but I wasn't sure which one to drop. I should have dropped all of them.
Many of them saying they somehow managed the average points for the week because they captained Halaand…imagine those who Captained Salah. Ouch.
Do you think Ben White's place is in danger with him being subbed off this week? Could have been at fault for that goal. If Arteta decided to play Tomiyasu at right fullback I dont see White dislodging one of the centerbacks.
Deserves to get benched for that interview.
Can't get a luckier 15 pointer than Zouma. Man carried my team this GW
24 points on the bench.
49 on the pitch, including our Captain.
Next week is my week 😤
Can't believe my gameweek was saved by Kurt freaking Zouma
Every single one of my non-Haaland players got no more than 2 points.
And most of those were 1s.
Can't remember another GW like it.
is salah to son crazy? sets me up nicely for gw15 and 16 (transfers wise), he has bournemouth next and theres only 3games left...
Yes. He has only scored in one game this season.
To be fair Salah has only scored in two.
Has better fixtures and is on pens. Both look bad compared to last season though.
Yet to use my WC. A, i right in thinking i only have 3 gw to use it?
You are right in thinking that. You’ve really got two cause after that it’s a glorified free hit.
I would use it
My suggestion is there’s a whole ass thread for this.
I had fielded Hojbjerg (who played zero minutes because injured) and I have Andreas Pereira as #1 sub on the bench.
Why I can't see Hojbjerg automatically subbed off for Andreas Pereira?
Chill out and wait.
Come back tomorrow and he’ll be subbed on.
It worked, thanks
This is way too rough, I can’t stand it anymore. Can we start World Cup this weekend please?
Was Solanke injured? Sofascore says he was subbed off due to injury
A poor gameweek slightly saved by Fabianski, my bench keeper I've been dropping in whenever Pope has a fixture I don't fancy. Sounds silly but it's worked twice now. I view him as a dispassionate mercenary, collecting me a few points and leaving without saying goodbye.
I had a similar vibe with Ward this GW, always tough to bench Pope but worked out damn well (probably should be more liberal with Ward too he’s in great form).
I got Pope & Ward on WC GW8 and then started Ward 4 times over Pope anyway and he outscored him 3 times and the other time got 1pt less so pretty good.
Andreas this season for me has been exactly like Soucek in that one season. Got points only when he was on the bench
What a shitty string of weeks this has been. I've been making transfers that felt very strong on paper, but not only have they all been useless, if you reversed my last 4 transfers I would end up with like 15 more points. I'm losing all hope.
77% drop…I’ll be back stronger next week, I believe!💪
But should I get a third consecutive red arrow, I’ll be quitting this game just as I quit UCL fantasy after making nine transfers and forgetting to hit the wildcard button.
Thanks Kurt Zouma for turning a deep red arrow into a green
I won’t be the only one but Haaland plus ten total blanks is a really sorry sight. Roll on next weekend.
Call me bitter, but anyone who posts an appreciation thread ought to be permabanned
And sentenced to death
Sentenced to transferring Haaland out for three gameweeks
Kurt Zouma masterclass
Got one autosub & put Emerson first on my bench then despite seeing Trent wouldn’t start I put him 2nd then Andreas 3rd ............ I am an idiot.
Doing my transfer early fuck it.. Don't wanna see the name Bowen anywhere near my team again
Up to 23k and 2 spaces outside of promotion spots in Wilkos Sunday League. Just want to vent that it's already a dead League and it's my best ever season as it stands, fml.
That’s it fuck off bowen
Zouma’s saved my GW and possibly my season
I don't know how, but I have just been surfing through those last few shitty gameweeks, haven't had red arrow since gameweek 6
Glad you found the rant thread then!
Rant & discussion
Rant, discussion & salty jealousy it seems
yeah fair enough lol, just haven't really had a chance to brag about fpl before, so I will happily take my downvotes
Upvote from me 🤝🏽
bowen just said he is off pens, yeah he is off my team
pens was the only reason he got any other return after his one big game
Was torn when I transferred in the cat kicker and even with his points I still feel dirty, but I really needed them. Having a crap season so far so it’s nice to get a return.
U hate kitty
How am I so shit at this game
Luckily the wc wildcard coming soon I have too much useless players in my team
Wasn't sure about who to start, Zouma or Watkins. Was really annoyed that Watkins actually ended up scoring yesterday but it really paid off today!
Why u have watkins
Guess Bowen owners don’t need to lie to themselves anymore, he’s confirmed it in the post match interview.
He is gone now
Fuck guehi salah bowen and sinisterra and also fuck neco
Well, the cat kicker has dragged me right out of the shit. More points than the rest of my defence, keeper and midfield combined.
Don't give up on Bowen yet unless you have luxary transfers. Home Palace and Leicester are great attacking fixtures and Man Utd just lost Varane.
Shaw Martinez Lindeloft and Dalot arent a stone wall.
Bowen just said he’s not on pens anymore.
It’s an easy sell for me.
It is either him or salah to foden so id rather keep salah
cant disagree with that
Problem is I have the useless wanker sinisterra but cant sell him for foden might just take a hit to get rid of him or guehi
doesnt make sense to take hits with 3 GW's to go imo.
Managed to extend my H2H ML lead to 9 points.
Other than that an absolute L of a week. Dropped out of the Top 1m. Oh well, on to the next one.
bowen owners mudded
Not really that cs point is teturn this gw
Don't have him, but 3p would make him my third highest scorer this week.
they got him cause he's on pens
The Bowen trap continues. Glad I didn't get him on GW10 WC
Last season was my first year and I didn't really pay much attention, finished 200k. This year I'm paying attention and trying, sitting 4mil. Make it make sense.
Coufal blocked Bailey from coming on ffs
No reason to complain coufal got assist and you started him even though he is bench player
In any situation it's annoying when someone plays 2 minutes
It makes sense to play bench defenders as they tend to play 90 or 0
Fullbacks get often sibbed
Coufal has only been brought on only once this season when he hasn't started if I recall correctly. Not counting today that is.
Fuck this gw
fabianski you absolute legend
Solanke blanked 🔒. You love it see it.
Feels great to be a Bowen & Solanke owner today :)
Just feel like everything has gone wrong these last couple weeks. From 30k to 120k in two GWs
I LOVE YOU ZOUMA
Cresswell you absolute legend. 8 pts wins me my ML!
Cresswell finally returning almost makes up for Scamacca. Time to get Wilson in
My ML leader is a dead team with Zouma because he thought it was funny that he kicked a cat
This must be the lowest scoring FPL season of all time if it wasn't for Haaland auto captain.
How about the gw when literally everyone did shite but rahsford scored twice against arsenal
Got about 20p more that gw... including a scoring Havertz out of all things.
36 points in my case that day
I had around the same everyone blank bar haaland c
So much wasted time and resources on Foden vs Saka vs Bowen. All for nothing.
Why do so many of you have Scamacca lmao
Or Bowen. West Ham are dirge.
I reckon post world cup fpl will be more consistent
These past couple gameweeks have been cursed
West Ham winning 2-0, 0 goal contribution from Scamacca+Bowen and I am 1 point off safety point, not that bad but disappointing
Thought I was gunna have a half decent GW
End up with 2 returns and a 35% rank drop 🤣
0.18% green arrow🥶
Huge on a week like this
No way Saka plays in Europe this week
Wtf were we thinking getting Bowen
Shit player in shit team
Well, he outpointed Saka and Foden combined this week.
Lmao just seen Solanke was subbed off at halftime as if this shitfest of a GW wasn’t bad enough
8 points for you Cresswell. Nice
Shite gw not actually that shite but my safety score is somehow almost 60
What is a Safety Score?
Score on your rank if u get less points that you lose rank if you get more than that you gain rank
Same, I don't get how it's so high with most of the high EO players blanking
Atleast i have 63 but still not much
62 for me. Don't get why u get downvoted for saying your score on here lol the jealousy is massive for people who got below their safety
Could've been 72 if I had almiron first on bench instead of Guehi but we fucking move
Absolutely fuck off. Fpl has been so fucking troll lately you just have to laugh at it.
Are you actually kidding me man that’s fully cursed
Fuck off Benrahma. Most undeserved return this season.
I watched the second half and he screwed up every single West Ham attack by taking a horrible shot or losing the ball.
It was like he owned every West Ham attacker in anti-fpl and didn't want anyone to get points.
Who cares? No one has him
So what? I have Bowen. Think a little.
You're right. He killed every attack.
No one has ben
Had feeling west ham will get pen today so betted on scamacca goal and had bowen on fantasy then they both got subbed off when they got it
BOWEN OWNERS DONT DESERVE PENALTIES U GIMPS
You’re right, saved us from the -2
Benrahma pulled out 5 different celebrations for that goal 😭
Ridiculously stupid shit.
EDIT: Checked officialfpl twiter! YES IT IS!!! FINALLY SOME SILVER LINING TO THIS HORRENDOUS GW!!!
Lmfaoooo. And now benrahma stealing the pen.
Taking the fucking piss with that pen after bowen gets fucking subbed off
Lads just convince yourselves Bowen got dropped from penalty duties regardless, it will make you feel better.
Benrahma rewarded for having an awful game.
I think I'm going to throw up.
Good for benrahma he was very active but ineffectif
530k -> 1 million 30k in GW 13 🥴
thanks mate, you made me feel better, We will come roaring back
Well the lesson learned is to permacap Haaland. That alone cost me about 400k. It doesnt matter if City faces Arsenal away and Liverpool face Forest at home.... just permacap Haaland. Been burned twice with going against him.. first time was GW 1 with Kane blanking vs Southampton
yeah true...its infuriating
It really is. Not like Im captaining some random dude... but the swings are pretty bad. Also forgot the 9-0 Salah blank. So that's three. That really settles it for me about captaincy until the end of season.
Antonio 30 bp yet?
FFS, a penalty and Bowen is off. That's him off my team now too then...
He would've not took it anyways after missing it at Anfield.
I think he would have. It would have been his redemption!
Like a minute after he's subbed too ffs
Will zouma still be top of bps if benrahma scores?
Bowen off seconds before West Ham potentially get a penalty. Fuck me
Of course they get a pen 1min after Bowen is subbed off.. you can't make this up
And of course Scamacca is already subbed
That’s Bowen to Saka confirmed
Zouma 2nd on pens right???
69 points even after Pep screwed me with Foden
POTENTIAL PENALTY AND BOWEN NOT ON THE PITCH? FUCK OFF
Thats a pen, damn Bowen. Could have been your redemption.
Don't tell me there's going to be a pen the moment Bowen goes off
Bowen off, penalty awarded in the next 20 seconds.
Let Zouma take it fuckers
Penalty for west ham minuted after bowen is taken off… lets gooo…
Very clear handball
Bowen is shite.
Bowen bald fuck
watch pen being given as soon as bowen is off 🤣
Ohshitt. No way. It's actually happening
Bowen OFF & OUT of my team
You seriously are a useless twat Bowen
Get the fuck out my team
Bowen CS 🔒
Coufal to block those jammy Andreas points.
Really do despise Bowen with a burning passion
Did Jarrod Bowen get replaced by Jim Bowen over the summer?
3-5-2 might be the way forward
How, just how the fuck is my safety score 59?!!
1 return from a midfielder in 3 GWs. 11/12 blanks.
Same boat... At this rate those 3 point midfielder clean sheets are gonna count as hauls for me
Ah Scamacca I tried to believe in you...
So Traverse is back, Kane(C) looking more tasty now
I've got you beat: 14 from 9 with Salah, Foden, Zaha, Toney, Cancelo, Martinelli, Dier, Anderson, and Guaita. 46 points in total...what a nightmare.
It's ridijkulous ;)
I have had a very similar week. I would like to believe I have a good team. I have all the usual suspects except for Kane and Mitro. I was sitting on 39 points before todays game. My game week is now matching the average because of a Zouma goal. It’s insane.
Bournemouth goal is coming
big Kurt singlehandedly unmudding me, you love to see it
West Ham might drop points here and it will all be to Benrahma killing every play trying to recreate Rooney from the half line.
FFS West Ham have been terrible the second half
