    I think I created a thread like this one of the other years.

    Hopefully we can find some hidden gems and I'll try keep the top post updated so people won't have to keep scrolling.

    DISCLAIMER * OPINIONS ARE FROM DIFFERENT PEOPLE*

    Arsenal

    Defenders

    Saliba is 4.5 and no reason he couldn't start at Arsenal

    Aston Villa

    Defenders

    Steer to start for Villa for the first month as a 4.0 keeper until Heaton is fit should be happening

    Crystal Palace

    Defenders

    Nathan Ferguson 4M Palace right back. Potential Starter.

    Everton

    Defenders

    Jarrad Branthwaite 4M Everton centre back. Potential Starter

    Midfielder

    Gordon 4.5M midfielder for Everton. Very attacking. Started most games post COVID19. Can see him getting a lot of gametime. Good enabler.

    Leeds


    Defenders

    Luke Ayling Leeds 4.5m Full back got a few goals last season. I think he’s vice captain so a likely starter

    Southampton

    Defenders

    Kyle Walker Peters is priced at 4.5 for Southampton.Started 6 of the last 7 games last season (on loan at Southampton) plus was brought on at HT for 45 mins v Brighton. Signed him on a permanent basis so obviously liked what they seen

    Wolves

    Defenders

    Vinagre for Wolves at 4.5 if Jonny is out injured for a while. Looks like Jonny did his ACL so could be out for the season.

    Good chance they could have a new keeper or Nyland or Kalinic?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,036 ✭✭✭ Brian201888


    Could potentially bring someone in but if not I'd expect Steer to be number 2 this year over Nyland. Kallinic will leave and if we don't have a taker for Nyland we won't buy another reserve keeper since Heaton is due back towards end of September I believe

    Leeds' Dallas at 4.5m is always looking to get forward and near the opposition box. O'Shea could be useful too for WBA at 4.5m if he starts, but perhaps Bilic will want a more experienced head to begin the campaign.

    If Steer is fit he would be ahead of those 2 in the pecking order. Smith and Kalinic have no relationship and Nyland has wasted every chance he got, whereas Steer’s one chance in the team resulted in an unexpected promotion. Love that guy.

    I see Neil Murray tweeted similar and “likely to be one of the first name on the team sheet”. I’m thinking that’s a bit much. He’s only 19 and has only played 28 games in France. Hopefully we’ll get more word on him but I think it’s unlikely so far.

    main post updated. I think it looks better by team and break down then? Thoughts?

    Kyle Walker Peters is priced at 4.5 for Southampton

    Started 6 of the last 7 games last season (on loan at Southampton) plus was brought on at HT for 45 mins v Brighton.

    Didn't have any G/A but worthy as an enabler in a decent team.

    Signed him on a permanent basis so obviously liked what they seen.

    +1

    Was very impressed with him.

    A worthy Cedric (obsession) replacement.

    Other Southampton options:

    McCarthy (4.5) seems a decent GK option but I'd plump for KWP's potential attacking returns.

    Bednarek 4.5. Solid CB but KWP seems a better option.

    Midfield:
    Romeu decent 4.5 enabler

    On the Leeds assets, I've been reading a lot about Stuart Dallas (4.5) too. Should start LB.

    He had 5 goals 3 assists for Leeds last season and apparently is played OOP at times in a RW/LW/CM position.

    According to some on Twitter, Bielsa will most likely play full strength in friendlies so should tell us a lot.

    EDIT: Sorry Mr Nice Guy, only realised you mentioned Dallas too :o

    Yep looks good. Nice and clear whats going on. Good work!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,989 ✭✭✭ POKERKING


    Could douglas get a game at leeds at left back for 4m? Was decent at wolves before moving there. Wasnt first choice last year but might get some gametime.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭ macraignil


    Would Lamptey at Brighton be a good option at 4.5mill? Seemed to be getting his game fairly regular after the lock down. Only one assist but playing as a wing back in some games might bring more assists next season. Any Brighton fans know if he looks to have made his case as the regular full back for this season?

    Could be an idea to get him alongside Dallas - in case Dallas got injured or dropped


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


    Douglas is on his way to Scotland by all accounts. I'd avoid.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,708 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Souchek is 5m, seems like very good value, someone described him as West Ham’s fellanini

    I'm not a Brighton fan but he looks like a very good player. He's very direct and fast, I think he's one to watch too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,359 ✭✭✭✭ Fitz*


    If Brewster goes on loan, he could be good at 4.5. started every game bar 1 on loan in the championship this season, and he still scored in that game. 22 games 11 goals in his first senior season after a bad injury. I'd expect him to start if he goes on loan. Maybe Leeds?

    If he stays at Liverpool, he won't be an option IMO.

    Just on the bolded part. After two days registered users on the site are unable to edit their posts.

    So hopefully a mod here can edit the OP as and when needed.

    Keenan Davis is a 4.5m striker. Started 4/10 of the games post lockdown, subbed on in the other 6

    Good thread, plenty added to my watchlist

    Goalkeepers
    - much slimmer pickings this year than usual, only 5 starting GK’s under 5m. McCarthy is the standout for me. Outperformed Ryan in 2020 and Hassenhuthl has Southampton looking more solid.

    Defender
    - Justin. Pereira is injured and Chilwell May leave so this lad will play for Leicester
    - Pieters. For those of us not going for Pope, you’ll probably want a Burnley defenders (they’ve only 2 over 4.5m). This lad played on the wing since lockdown and got 5 assists.
    - Vinagre as other mentioned, is great value with Johnny out
    - Johnston (4.0 West Ham). Zabaleta is too old, Ngakia was sold, and Fredericks hasn’t set the world alight. Played 90mns in the last 3 during lockdown

    Hard to get excited about any forward or mid, I’m thinking of starting with Soucek and a 4.5 fodder defender


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,656 ✭✭✭ 2nd Row Donkey


    What about FPL legend Hegazi of WBA. 4.5m.

    Last time WBA were in the EPL he scored a hat full of points in the opening months before trailing off as the season went on.

    I actually looked at him this morning. He only scored 2 goals that season. I thought he was more prolific than that. Last season he was in and out of the team, only one goal

    Zabaleta has left West Ham as well.

    And the Hammers are in the market looking for a new right-back so it's very hard to see Johnson getting any significant minutes this season.

    He had a couple assists, clean sheets and baps in the first 5-6 games and was only 4m. He did trail off badly after that but had a little renaissance in the 2nd half of the season if I recall correctly.
