    Lukaku. I'll never learn.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,563 ✭✭✭✭ Father Hernandez


    Voted Lukaku but could easily change to Jesus before Friday.

    Tempted to take a punt on Zaha though :cool:


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,660 ✭✭✭ ScummyMan


    Lukaku.

    Staying away from a City player cause Chris Hughton teams are typically tighter than a camel's arse in a sandstorm, and promoted teams often start well.

    Lukaku


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,771 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Will play it safe and go lukaku
    (Never thought id type that sentence )

    Lukaku.

    GW1 is not the time for taking punts.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    Kane.
    Unlikely I'll have Lukaku and would probably captain Kane anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,295 ✭✭✭✭ Mint Sauce


    FIX is recommending Baines for me, I may change that before Friday evening though. Jesus, King, Firmino, and Salah, are all on my short list.

    I had completely forgotten about lukaku s record against west ham ........

    I hate captaining Lukaku...

    But feck it.

    No need for risks in GW1.

    I have a feeling I'm going to be p*ssed off at Lukaku a lot this season...

    Even in an auto complete team you should have a better option than that!

    The official fpl Twitter account has just tweeted an article to help pick people's captains and mentions it
    Honestly why don't they just pick everyone's team at this stage

    Kane. Tekkers vc

    I'm thinking of going without Lukaku, Kane or Aguero in my side :eek:

    Kane still a possibility, but probably won't have the other 2. Looks like a masssssssssssive risk looking at the captaincy figures already. I love an auld fantasy gamble though. Jesus or a Liverpool player in my thinking right now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,587 ✭✭✭ MarkSRFC21


    Would love to stick it on Aguero, but playing it safe with Lukaku

    Am I panicking picking Batshuayi as captain? They play Burnley at home and he's had a great pre season. Is Lukaku or KDB a safer bet?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,670 ✭✭✭ Benimar


    Lukaku. I think he's going to troll,the bejaysus out of us, but his ownership and captaincy levels are so high it's way too risky not to pick him.

    Lukaku certainly, KDB somewhat of a 'risk'

    I posted previously in this thread going for Lukaku & about 'punting' for Zaha in GW1 but after reading quite a bit, GW1 is not for punts.

    Say you do go for Batshuayi, he starts and at best, gets an assist where as the majority of people in your leagues and globally have gone for Lukaku who gets a hat trick and 3 bonus, you're playing catch up with everyone right from the off.

    If Lukaku was to fail and you and the rest are on him, then everyone is in the same boat bar maybe the odd 'punter' on their own, the rest of your team will dictate your GW1 points to see where you finish.

    It's not to say either scenario will happen but it's best to play safe than to punt right away.

    Good luck

    Zaha worth a pop

    Zaha worth a pop

    On the first week? No he isn't


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,655 ✭✭✭✭ wonski


    With Lukaku near 50% of ownership it only makes sense to give him the armband.

    As others said - too early to take risk. We will have plenty of time to do silly things :D
