    Happy New Year to all who frequent FSA :-)

    Fabianski
    Wan-Bissaka Digne Robertson
    Son Anderson Richarlison Pogba Salah
    Aubameyang(c) Rashford

    Subs : Foster Ings Lovren Bednarek

    Not much point in double pool defense?

    Going for the double Liverpool defense anyway since I think Alexander Arnold and Robertson have a good chance of getting attacking returns even if they don't get a clean sheet. It has been seven games with no clean sheet for City so sold Ederson for Kepa. Left with:

    Kepa
    Digne, Robertson, Alexander Arnold, Trippier,
    Richarlison, Anderson, Hazard, Salah
    Rondon, Kane(c)

    Hamer, Torreira, Wan Bissaka, Ings

    All the best in the new year.

    ^^
    Looks GTG Invincible Turkey.:pac:
    I'll echo your sentiments and add best speed for your squads and fair green arrow winds.

    Pogba in for Sane and rolling..

    Lossl
    Robertson Digne Doh4.9
    Pogba Anderson Son Hazard (vc)
    Kane (c) Auba Ings
    Button Hojbjerg AWB Bednarek

    Flip-flopping on the captaincy.

    I’m definitely playing 5 in the mid.

    Should I play Ings or Zaha this GW as my 2nd striker?


  • Registered Users Posts: 42,030 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    Happy New Year all. My New Year's resolution FPL-wise is a return to green arrows which I have been starved of over the last two months.

    Fabianski
    Doherty Schindler Digne
    Salah Martial Ricky Snodgrass Sané
    Kane Auba (c)

    Hamer - Wan-B Quaner TAA

    A starting Chelsea or Wolves defender would come into my thinking,

    At a push Ings; rested even though away to a team that hog the ball. I Don't think Woy will start with a 9 so goes against Zaha for me.

    Sort your bench order please! Only makes sense if you think Trent don't start.

    At minimun. Wolves have the extra day rest over Palace so AWB on the bench is ok I think.
    Schindler given his ownership and lack of threat versus TAA would worry me. I'm starting Lossl (over Button) but Anderson for me is a factor.

    Happy New Year all. My New Years resolution is not to take hits of more than -4.
    No hits this year yet:
    Fab
    Alonso, Bennett, Lindelhof,
    Hazard, Richarlison,Pogba,Salah,Snodgrass,
    Rashford,Aubameyang,

    Salah (v) Lingard Pereyra Doucouré
    Auba (c) Jimenez Barnes

    Subs: Ederson Fraser Robbo VVD


  • Registered Users Posts: 55 ✭✭✭ JayJoe1990


    Patricio
    Digne Diop Kolasinac
    Hazard(v) Son Matrial Anderson
    Auba(c) Aguero Jimenez

    TAA AWB Billing

    Really need decent points this week from Aguero after stupidly keeping him for the last month. A few departing points from Kolasinac would be nice also before he's out for trippier or Luiz


  • Registered Users Posts: 849 ✭✭✭ IrishLad90


    Just removed Auba and TAA
    For Firmino and wan bissaka
    Bit of extra $$$ for this weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,530 ✭✭✭✭ SlickRic


    No idea who to bench.

    At the moment, I'm on this.

    Fabianski
    VVD Bennett AWB
    Salah Sané Ricky Deulofeu Pogba
    Kane Wilson

    Hamer Jimenez Laporte Yedlin

    It's play Sané or Jimenez for me.
    And in defence, it's Laporte or AWB.

    I think Palace v Wolves will be low scoring and tight.

    My only thing is I think there's a chance Sané is benched, but having 9.4 on the bench at home seems mad.

    Any thoughts?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,399 ✭✭✭✭ ThunbergsAreGo


    Jimenez over Delafaou?

    That's the way I went, but the way your season is going I might be better copying you!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,452 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Happy New Year folks....I'm starting the year with a sinus infection and antibiotics so hoping that FPL might provide some light relief today.

    2 FTs....Alderweireld and Martial out for TAA and Pogba. Basically undoing my double transfer from 2 weeks ago...hadn't realised Spurs were so fragile at the back.

    Foster

    Robertson | Digne | Doherty

    Salah | Pogba | Sane | Richarlison | Snodgrass

    Jimenez | Kane (C)

    Subs: Hamer | Mitrovic | TAA | Balbuena

    I may yet start Mitrovic over Snoddy


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,399 ✭✭✭✭ ThunbergsAreGo


    I would go Mitro for sure, always makes a game more interesting

    Are you heading out for the weekend ;)

    That and there are no league matches


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


    Foster

    Robertson | Shaw | Bennett | Zabaleta

    Pogba | Salah | Sane | Eriksen

    Kane (C) | Mitrovic

    Button, AWB, Solanke, Kayal

    Tough decisions this week
    Currently have Mitro benched due to double united mid which I am uncomfortable with but it is a protective measure for one week only
    Rest of mid is Anderson (BHA), Ricky (LEI) and Fraser (WAT) and Kane/Auba up top. Mitrovic has had a crazy amount of shots/chances last few games but I just cant start him ahead of any of those when he is away to Arseanl

    And then there is my defence..............Alonso and Digne starters. then one of Robertson (mci), Schindler (BUR), WanB (wol)
    Currently starting robertson due to his attacking threat and I expect a tight game........
    What ye think

    The early deadline is going to catch heaps of people out judging by lack of activity on here.........
    I have now convinced myself to start Mitrovic.......for fraser?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,452 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    There's a lot of people in the same boat this week trying to sort out the starting eleven.

    FWIW, I'm starting Robertson as well...equally liable to get attacking returns and CS points imho.

    Also, FWIW, I'm starting Mitrovic ahead of Snodgrass. Arsenal will surely thrash Fulham but wouldn't be shocked to see Mitro getting chances against that defence.

    Just read that Snodgrass was subbed due to a knock the last day so a good shout. Maybe managers will make all this debating irrelevant but a lot of the players I fear will be rotated will prob makes cameos

    I am now getting very tempted to sign Jonny for Schindler and start him ahead of Robertson.........a lot of Wolves defence in my league too and they have a lovely run after the city game......but at that stage I could do ALonso to Doherty


  • Registered Users Posts: 382 ✭✭ El festino


    Still no Man United players. Is this crazy?
    Can do Anderson / Fraser out for Delefou / Pogba for minus 4 but both have decent fixtures.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,764 ✭✭✭✭ eh i dunno


    I'm benching brooks this week at home to Watford.
    Salah Anderson richarlison pogba Kane aubamayang Jimenez have to start ahead of him


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,680 ✭✭✭✭ Mars Bar


    Is it mad to have Patricio, Doherty and Boly all starting?

    Get woken by the alarm you set so you can do a bit of last minute tinkering before the deadline, drunkenly do untold damage to your team while taking a -24, roll over for another few hours kip. Wake up again thinking you couldn't possibly feel any worse, until you look at your fpl team! Love the traditional New Years Day routine.
