I am opening a private draft league, and I need 8th player for the league to be complete. Is anyone interested?
Getting closer to the 26th. Can’t wait
If they reach the final he probably won't play before january. But when I have watched him for Spurs he does not play like he does for Brazil. Mostly because Kane is the striker and Richarlison will be on the wing.
Playing draft till the end of gw 19 and need to replace Jesus who do you think is the best option
Solanke, Havertz, Martial, Isak (already have wilson) , Auba or maybe a low tier striker (only 4 man league so basically everyone is available)
So which Chelsea players should we pick?
They have a double and really nice fixtures. With Fulham I think Mitro and Andreas are obvious to me.
I was thinking Kepa, but he is flagged and also Mendy might start.
James might also not be back as the obvious choice.
Ideally I want one attacker, but the rotation is too much. Mount was my pick last year that I did regret in the end. He did not even play both games and did nothing anyway.
I was thinking maybe Havertz. Just for the first 4 GWs. Am I crazy?
The very max is Kepa for me. Potter rotates like a madman; you’re running rotation risks for every other player in their squad, including James and Chilwell who are injury-prone.
Mount has started every game under Potter in PL, but agree he is not that great and might get rotated now with so many games.
Personally think Rashford might outscore him despite one game less and less minutes per game as well.
defence- trippier, saliba, cancelo
mid-almiron, martinelli, bernardo silva, trossard
rate out of 10
Will Toney even play? Not sure with his scandal still ongoing
Jesus out for three months as well
Also no need to have two of the more expensive keepers. If you want Alisson then just pick Ward.
who do you think i should get as a replacement for toney/jesus?
yea thanks for the ward suggestion
The best expensive one is Kane.
A cheaper one but still good could be Wilson or Martial.
Nketiah is another option but could be a bit more risky. They can also just play Martinelli on top or buy a new striker in january.
kane is not who i want ( I am an arsenal fan)
well, I took a risk and took Eddie nketiah and gotta say it paid off. points I believe
well I took a risk and took Eddie nketiah and gotta say it paid off.
I’m worried my bench is not good enough. What changes should I make?
Starter - Raya
Bench - Ward
Starters - Trippier, White, Castagne, Dalot
Bench - N.Williams
Starters - Salah, Almirón, Martinelli, De Bruyne
Bench - Garnacho
Starters - Haaland, Darwin
Bench - Greenwood
I would downgrade Darwin or go Wardversen and upgrade Garnacho/Greenwood. Neco should stay, good bench fodder
Guys - I have 2.0 in the bank here and not a CLUE how to spend it... Any ideas?
Just leave it for a rainy day??
Trippier, Gabriel, Dalot
Saka, Martinelli, Diaz, Rashford
Haaland, Kane, Darwin
(Ward, Fofana, Walker, Pereira) +2.0 ITB
Actually I've solved it 😂
Bruno for 1 week and/or until Luis Diaz is starting again...
Ronaldo is gone so Bruno could be back to his old self again, plus gear couple of fixtures to punt on
Kepa - (Ward)
Dalot - James - Trippier - (Perraud) - (Bueno)
Maddison - Bruno - Rashford - Almiron - (Andreas)
Kane - Mitro - Haaland
Tempted by Bruno+Rashford because of WC form, could be KDB+Odegaard/Martinelli but I fancy Utd's fixtures to begin with until City and Arsenal have their doubles which coincides with fixture swings. Also think Maddison is a better option than Saka to begin with.
Thoughts on Man United defence? Go to defender?
Only consider Dalot. The rest don’t have as much upside or aren’t entirely nailed.
Dalot, easily. De Gea a good shout as well
Thoughts on this first draft? (0.2 ITB)
Cancelo, Trippier, Gabriel, Castagne, Gomez
KDB, Trossard, Martinelli, Almiron, Andreas
Haaland, Darwin, Wilson
Or is this second draft any better? (0.9ITB)
Cancelo, Trippier, Gabriel, Castagne, Gomez
Salah, Martinelli, Odegaard, Almiron, Andreas
Haaland, Darwin, Martial
Do any of you think the drama at the WC will probably dampen KdB's form after returning?
No. International football has different squad dynamics and shouldn’t be taken too seriously as an indicator of how a player will do at his club.
Im not getting de bruyne. So the fpl winning move would be to get kdb right now
What do you guys think about Fernandes as an option? Still too expensive?
I just still want Rashy more, not great finishing but his xGIs are so tempting(even in GW16 when he was no longer playing up top)
Rashford not fully nailed though. Sancho could play instead.
Over christmas particular if England reach semi then I expect Rashford to get rotated.
Rashford nailed unless England reach the final
Rashford is only a rotation risk for the first game if England make the semi finals. He’s otherwise definitely nailed; started every league game this season barring one and that was because he was ill before the Newcastle game. Sancho hasn’t been anywhere close to him this season in terms of his performances, and Rashford’s confidence is also sky high after doing well both with club and with England at the World Cup.
If England reaches semi then i'll go with no Rashford and no Kane(as it stands I really want Salah and going Haaland/Kane/Salah threemium + Mitro 3rd striker means I have to sacrifice a lot elsewhere) and perhaps either start with Haaland/Salah/KDB threemium 4-4-2 or with Haaland/Mitro/Jesus frontline(or similar)
I do want an Arsenal triple up by GW22 though, the DGWs and fixtures look extremely tasty. Problem is which other 2 to own out of Gabriel/White/Saka/Ødegaard/Jesus(I already have Martinelli)
I still struggle to understand his consistent role / resulting output will be under ETH. Still not as clear to me vs when he was under Ole
I ain’t doin shit til last minute
I've saved 5 drafts. And will use none of them.
