    I'm nearly settled in the below team.

    Hamer / Begovic

    Alonso Mendy WB Monreal Bennett

    Hazard Gundog Guendozi Salah Walcott

    Ings Aguero Mitro

    2.0 ITB if Gundog doesn't work out or to replace Kun with Kane.

    My keepers I'm iffy about and could replace both for 4.5/4.5 if a good option was suggested.

    Anybody considered a Kane/Kun attack?

    Hennesy Hamer
    Mendy Alonso Duffy Wan-B (Bennett)
    Salah Pedro Mane Guendozi (Westwood)
    Aguero Kane (Kamara)

    Your midfield is crippled there. Defence weak too tbh

    Salah Mane and Pedro?

    Yes, and then two defensive mids.

    Pedro isn't going to last as a starter. You can't be starting Guendozi or Westwood so you'll be relying on playing 4 defenders every week and then having a sweat on Pedro every game.

    There's always the option to transfer him out.

    3 x 4.5m attackers and 2 x 4m defenders, having Kane cripples the whole team imo. Unless you're chasing and want to captain him over Salah/Aguero, then I don't see how he provides value for money.

    I've thought about it a bit but will wait a few weeks to WC.

    Mendy to 4.5-5m and a Guendozi upgrade would be my change above.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,370 ✭✭✭S.M.B.


    4.5 Keeper Hamer
    Mendy Alonso Robertson Wan-B (Bennett)
    Salah Hazard Walcott Mhki (4.5 Mid)
    Aguero Mitrovic (Ings)

    or

    4.5 Keeper Hamer
    Mendy Alonso Robertson Shaw (Wan-B)
    Salah Hazard Walcott Pereyra (4.5 Mid)
    Aguero Mitrovic (Ings)

    Any advice on the two 4.5-ers would also be appreciated.

    Pedro will become Richarlison once he's back.
    I think Wan-B is a season keeper.
    Two 4.5 mids. Will play one of them or Kamara each week.

    I could downgrade Mane and upgrade one of them. But I like having Mane/Salah double up

    Fair enough on Pedro to Richarlison. Don't like having to play one of those 4.5 guys or Kamara.

    Personal preference tho

    It's only one spot. Almost a guaranteed 2-3 points each week.

    It's Kane/4.5 mid vs likely Mitro/Hazard or Mhky/Firmino

    Would be curious as to what most people would choose there - Surely one of the latter two?

    On a wildcard and I have Mitrovic and Hazard at the moment.

    Middle one for me, I agree its between the latter two, particularly if the 4.5m mid is going to be a starter, Liverpools fixtures are horrible and Firmino is essientially an OOP player teh wrong way around and Arsenal while having great fixtures have been a bit meh

    Giving PEA another game or two. If he he doesn’t get his act the together the money will give me a bit of leeway to change things around.


    Begovic (Hamer)

    Wan-Bissaka Mendy Robertson Alonso Shaw

    Salah Walcott Dilva (Guendouzi, Stephens)

    Aubameyang Aguero (Kamara)

    Doesn't matter when you get Hazard in he'll blank endlessly until the week after you sell him

    Hennesy Hamer
    Mendy Alonso Duffy Wan-B (Bennett)
    Salah Pedro Mane Guendozi (Westwood)
    Aguero Kane (Kamara)

    Have now done Mane/Kamara to Moura/Zaha for balance. Going 4-3-3.

    Have .4m left.
    No decent 4.9m mids though :(

    Cairney wouldn't be the worst shout, got an assist at the weekend but he's a doubt for the next match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,164 ✭✭✭Dearg81


    The Wolves winger Costa is a decent 4.9 player too and plays in an attacking team.

    You are hardly close to getting an extra .1 out of mane? Could get brooks if so. I'm tempted to squeeze him into my squad.

    Cheers guys. Think I'll go Costa for now and await further news on Cairney.
    Can't stretch to the 5m options which is a pity.

    Salah Pedro Mane Guendozi (Westwood)
    Aguero Kane (Kamara)

    Trying it with 
    Fabianski Begovic
    Mendy Robertson Alonso (wan bis) (bennet)
    Mane Pedro Pereyra Walcott Gundogan
    Aguero Kane Ings

    I think Gundogan has the potential to be FF gold and I'm happy rotating that front 8, if Pedro gets dropped I'll adapt but I think he is one of the best value players in the game this season. If Kane flops and Salah is must have it should be a 4 point hit at worst to get him back.

    Toyed with it. Don't think you can have both Salah and Mane at the same time as both of the big guns.

    Best I've come up with:

    Hennesy Hamer
    Mendy Trippier Cook (Wan-B Bennett)
    Salah Pedro Walcott Neves (Pereyra)
    Aguero Kane (Ings)

    with just enough change to get Ricky back in for either Pedro or Walcott. Could replace (Neves/Pereyra) with (Gundogan/Milner) also.

    That's very close to the best I've come up with too and it's kinda growing on me tbh.

    I think it's only a matter of time before people will want Salah, Hazard, Kane, Aguero in attack. I don't think 4 can be done, most will have 2 but I think 3 could be a great differential.

    I had something this in mind for a few weeks time:

    Foster (Speroni)
    Alonso, Mendy, Lovren (WanB, Peltier)
    Salah, Richarlison, Schurrle, Pedro, Pereyra
    Kane, Aguero, (Quarner)

    Depending on price changes, I think it would leave me with 0.6 to get an extra playing defender. 3 duds is 1 too many, even for me.

    Have 3 of the four now. The four is impossible though without the rest of the team being awful

    Foster/Ryan
    Mendy/Robertson/Alonso/AWB/peltier
    Salah/hazard/Walcott/kante/gunnarson
    Aguero/Arnie/mitrovic
