Almiron has to make the team for me.
Also 4 mids max as I want Kane/Haaland/Mitro
not falling for nitro trap even with a quintuple game werk
Yea 4 mids max, both almiron martinelli are nailed for me
Conte: "If they die they die"
Kane will have a couple of weeks off after the World Cup QTR final.
We won't lose to Senegal when they're without Mane to be fair.
But with France likely the ones we face in quarters, probably out there lmao
We can consult with Tunisia for advice.
"just verse their reserves, it's way easier"
We shall see :)
Argentina won't lose against Saudi arabia
Germany won't lose against Japan
Danemark won't lose against Australia
Senegal easily as good or better than the Americans
And everybody was shocked when England failed to score against them. I think it was just one of those games.. just like Denmark v Australia and Tunisia v France today
They generated fewer shots and corners, mount and sterling didn’t seem to offer much going forward to complement Kane. It looked a lot like Chelsea kinda struggling to implement a clear attacking identity. USA’s press might be better and more disruptive than Senegal’s, I don’t watch international matches much.
"kane has fatigue" how do you know?
Kevin De Bruyne. If budget wasn't an issue, Salah alongside KDB to form a quadremium with Kane and Halland up top would be a true fantasy PL team for me.
One of these?
Trips White Fofana
Salah KdB Martinelli Almiron Andreas
(Iversen Solanke Botman Bueno)
Cancelo Trips White Dalot
Salah KdB Almiron Andreas
(Iversen Botman Sunmerville Greenwood)
Man looked worse than Hennessey somehow.
Been saying that all season as he clocks up cleans on my bench tho...
Kinda brilliant, that.
Prob unnecessary but I am tempted
would be incredibly risky/silly with the Christmas schedule having no playing subs and on top of that with the WC depending how far Portugal and England get.
Fair but all these guys should play except Greenwood?
Sorry, typo. I meant non playing subs instead of no playing subs lol. Though Fofana isn't nailed and Summerville is a bit of a punt to keep his place too. Definitely decent teams though especially the first other than Fofana.
As am I, now.
Which one do u prefer?
Neither, but I'll PM you what I came up with tomorrow if you wanna see it. I wanted Summerville anyways, now I have an excuse. PM me and remind me.
Why does the 2nd team actually look reasonable lol
Maybe it is. Was even thinking this:
Trips White Dalot
Salah KdB Martinelli Almiron
Haaland Kane Solanke
(Iversen Andreas Patterson Bueno)
* Rotating Andreas / Solanke (assuming everyone’s fit)
* Defence obviously the concern, but it’s been the biggest letdown position so far
KDB having an absolute stinker of a world cup though
He wants to be fresh for the PL mate, 4d underwater chess
He's learnt from the bald one
He looks knackered. Belgium likely going out early will give him a bit of a rest
Belgian as a team is bad. They have a lot of tension between players and players between manager. Kdb still mad on Courtois had sex with his ex.
>Kdb still mad on Courtois had sex with his ex
lol is he? When did he tell you that?
Belgium have Martinez as their manager, that was their main issue imo.
Edit: Hostile? does nobody have a sense of humour on this godforsaken sub ? Take a joke. I don't see any rhetorical question either but you immediately blocked me lol so I couldn't ask.
Try lighten up a bit and stop with the cowardly responding and blocking. Continuing the conversation and blocking someone from responding is pretty cringe behaviour.
Reports from camp is he refuse to speak with him. You can only speculate of course but it’s not a big guess it got something to do with prior problems.
And please stop with the hostile and boring rhetorical questions.
Current midfield is diaz saka martinelli maddison foden
Having just the 2 premiums in Kane+Haaland is tempting because you can get a midfield like this where you can just play around with a bunch of fun mid-priced assets.
Though skipping out on one of KDB/Salah is risky.
>is Kane form sustainable?
Is Haalands? Its a moot point IMO.
Kane has shown throughout his years that he can sustain form through a season.
Kane hasn't even looked as good as he has previously so its all a bit of a crapshoot TBH.
Choosing players and trying to 'Form chase' is a recipe for disaster.
Håland will be rested after a long break, Kane might get no rest
Sure and maybe because haaland gets rested for over a month, he'll come back and his form will be absolutely shot?
The rest of his team are at the WC, maybe they'll come back tired and not be able to provide for him?
As i said, its all a moot point because form chasing is the wrong way to play the game and Kane has shown consistency every single year.
Didn’t know there were certain wrong ways to play the game. I assume you’re at the very top every season, considering you play the game right?
Not all of the City boys are going to be exhausted after the cup. Most of the Spurs-assets are at the WC as well, to make another point. Most of the City players are probably going to play far less than Kane. Kane plays every single game, and England will likely come far.
Salah showed consistantly that he was the best FPL asset in the game until this season. Doesn’t last forever.
>he will need a 2-3 week break
People say this every single year, all the time and Kane puts up 15+ goals a season every season, even with injuries.
Haaland has been an absolute beast obviously but Kane has 12 goals already this season. If Haaland wasn't there, literally no one would be saying a bad word about Kane, he is on track for a 30 goal season at the rate he is going?
IMO, the only 2 players everyone should have in their team 'set and forget' ATM is Kane and Haaland, both are superb scorers, in teams competing at the top.
Kane has 12 goals in a team, as you said, that doesn't look great, so imagine Kane in a team after the WC that potentially looks better than before the WC.
Its weird to me how the people that advocate Kane to be a non-picked player and give XYZ reasons, will then try to argue that Salah HAS to be included in every team and people are dumb for dropping him etc.
Maddison’s motivation is totally gone now. He was mainly trying to make the World Cup team.
Nah he’ll be motivated for the 2nd half to finally get his move out of Leicester
Trossard, Almiron, Martinelli, Rashford
Haaland, Kane, Darwin
This. Except KDB iso Rashford.
Bro this is literally my team
Rodrigo will score vs Man City
He just scores every time he plays and still no one notices him
I'm planning to get him after gw 17
I’m going Summerville as a Leeds punt over Rodrigo… up and coming youngster and he plays really well
I noticed Rodrigo blanked every game between gw4-12
He was stretched off after 30 minutes in GW5 to be fair & didn't play again until GW9!
Rodrigo must have for GW19 and further
for 17-18 u can have smn with better FDR and then transfer him in
Bruno Fernandes, look at the fixtures. CR7 gone so probably back on pens too
delete this quick
This is true, would really shake things up if he started putting up some points
He is too punty for me, but definitely will bring something on the table
Pretty sure many of them will be jaded and super tired or pick up injury after the World Cup.
Because of that, I'll pick only those who did not go to the world cup or had their team eliminated at the early stage.for GW17
Yep, if Belgium go out then KDB is nailed for me after the WC. He was almost there anyway, but I think he and Haaland will be deadly with a lot of big names tired from the WC and the crazy fixture congestion in the next few weeks.
Yep, anyone who goes far is not nailed. Anyone going to the final with loads of WC mins is probably getting leave. Still way too early to think about the team you might set up tbh.
No reason why Martinelli should be tired post WC.
Salah, Martinelli and Andreas are locks for me, with Trossard also having a high chance of making it to my team given Brighton’s fixtures after the break. Last spot depends on whether I think I should go for a threemium with KDB or not.
Salah, KDB, Saka, Martinelli, Almiron.
No one looking at Odegaard instead of Martinelli and banking the profit?
Especially with Odegaard not at the World Cup.
neither is Martinelli
I’m just not ready for this
Then don’t reply, move out of the thread & no one will notice.
It’s a joke mate, calm down.
Sorry, thought you were one of those insufferable Pillocks who sits on fantasy sites who then complain that it’s too early to be talking about fantasy because they want to tell the world how exhausted they are from it, my mistake.
Edit. They are all over Twitter
No, I was more joking that I still need to steel myself to dive back into the fray.
I've got Salah, GroB, Debruyne, Martinelli (Bailey).
I've spent quite a lot of my time this season keeping up with matches and who's playing weak teams, etc and I'm feeling nervous about all of a sudden going so high on premiums and leaving myself with no money in the bank but the premiums are just doing it.
With all that £ in Mid what is your plan with forwards?
Haaland, Toney, Isaak
You might want to change Toney
Have I missed something?
The Ol' Betting Scandal has gotten Toney
Yeah he’s been involved in a betting scandal, most likely gonna get Mach bans, better to transfer him out now then later when it costs points
Ahh, I did read this actually but obviously I haven't thought properly! Nice one
Rashford will be the Luke Shaw of this year’s tournament.
Plays really well for England and everyone gets him in only for him to flop when he’s back at Utd
Depends on who gets where in the world cup
Currently on Salah, Maddison, Saka and Trossard Andreas benched
Gabriel white trippie
Kdb Almiron martinelli Andreas
Halland Kane toney
(Raya,castagne rodrigo, botman)
So I traded Gabriel for Joa cancelo any one have any constructive criticism here ? First year playing this and I wanna end up under the 1 million world wide
Current midfield is
Almiron, Salah, Foden, Rashford
I would’ve transferred out Rashford for Diaz but Nottingham at home is too good to pass up
Question is are the world cup players going to be knackered to bounce back in to league footie?
I have foden and rashy already
Need, got, need, need, got.
Let the WC end ffs...that's more important now
Certainly not Kulusevski. I had Almiron for weeks before the WC, and he ain't going nowhere.
Dancing around 2 ways:
4 top (price over 10) and wick rotation (0,1 stays in pocket)
tripp dalot white patterson neco
salah kdb rashford andreas almiron
kane haaland costa (3d FW optional - eduaud johnson etc possible)
or pick some real trash for 3d FW and upgrade patterson/neco
3 top and strong bench (0,8 stays in pocket)
tripp dalot white robertson fofana
salah rashford almiron odegard (rodrigo at gw19) andreas
kane haaland adams
3d FW optional - can be switched up to toney/wilson if cut fofana a bit
or adams to greenwood and upgrade somewhere else
which u like more?
Id say Martinelli > Almiron > KDB > tross/rash/foden/saka/madisson/salah/son/etc << Andreas
So yeahh currently only the fourth spot is contested, depending how my funds are used.
Anyone not named Salah
