    I would. Ultimately the bench boost only really relates to your bench, and considering you’re starting the Villa lads and James, they’d only come into the equation as a negative to your bench boost here if they didn’t play any minutes at all, as they’d mean one of your bench players was no longer a bench player.

    Johnstone, Bamford, Dallas and Anguissa has plenty of potential to get you the kind of points tally you’d need to make a bench boost worthwhile, you’re looking for around 20 really.

    Thanks, yeah, happy enough that bench has potential to score, I’d be disappointed if they didn’t manage 15pts, and it might be as strong a bench as I have for the rest of the season. Hopefully the Villa lads and James all see plenty game time.
    BB activated.

    -8

    Mendy
    Coufal - Chilwell - Justin
    Salah - KDB (TC) - Soucek - Bruno
    Antonio - Kane - Bamford

    (Steer - Dallas - Taylor - Anguissa)

    Original plan was to have 13 DGWers + Son/Kane to BB. Then I missed a free transfer a few weeks back so no playing bench keeper, then Charlie waste-of-space Taylor got injured about 3 seconds after I transferred him in, then the Leeds/Soton game got cancelled, then DCL got injured!

    So ended up taking a -8 for Son/JWP/DCL > KDB/Soucek/Antonio anf have lumped the TC on KDB to keep pace with the lads in my ML and offset the hits. Best of luck all... whats a melt this season has turned out to be so far.

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Stones, (C)resswell
    KDB, Salah, Rashford, Grealish, Soucek
    Cavani, Antonio

    11 DGW'ers

    Time to make up a bit of ground in my money league, or to completely blow myself out of contention.

    almost went without bruno but he's scored big too often lately, even comtemplated going with kdb+sterling
    I do think city might get a cleanie possibly two


    fancy antonio but he's not been getting much game time

    Almost went with rashford and el ghazi instead of ogbonna and bruno

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,704 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007


    Going with this for -8.

    Mendy
    AWB, Stones, Cancelo, Lowton, Coufal
    Bruno, KDB, Rashford, Son
    Werner

    Johnstone, Adams, Smith Rowe, Brewster

    Good luck!

    -4 this week to bring in Salah and Antonio in for Zaha and Kane

    8 doubles with Holding, Son and Bamford more than acceptable single gameweek players for me, all against poor teams.

    Martinez
    Dias Stones Holding
    Salah (c) KDB Grealish Son Bruno
    Bamford Antonio

    Steer, Dier, Dallas, Brewster

    Kind of expecting red arrows this week, but if they're only small ones and I can stay in say top 150k (I'm currently 90k but lots of people planned specifically for this week and I did not), and I'm coming out of these weeks with my Wildcard, FH, Bench Boost and TC still intact, I will be optimistic for the season ahead.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,129 ✭✭✭Lundstram


    Martinez
    Coufal Stones Robertson
    Rashford Salah(c) Bruno Soucek Son
    Wilson Bamford

    Dallas Konsa DCL

    No hits, not even a transfer.

    Not going to do the BB, too much uncertainty. Something tells me I shouldn't bench Dallas. Toss up with him and Bamford.

    After a very underwhelming FH, bracing myself for another disappointment with a risky BB and -8 hit:

    Martínez, Button
    Cancelo, Coufal, Chilwell, Lowton, Bednarek
    Salah (c), Bruno, Son, Grealish, Soucek
    Kane, Bamford, Antonio

    Have you any funds to do Button to Johnstone? Just seems a waste BB without a 2nd playing goalkeeper.

    OK, here goes... BB active.

    GK: Meslier, Fabianski

    DEF: Justin, Cancelo, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Dias

    MID: Harrison, Henderson, Salah (VC), De Bruyne (C), Fernandes

    FWD: Bamford, Adams, Cavani

    11 players scheduled for a DGW, so 26 player-games. Was preparing for a full DGW squad (WC in GW17) but Covid messed with the team... took -8 hit to patch up the team.

    Hoping for 100+ this week if fixtures and players don't change too much, going to be a long nervous GW! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,510 ✭✭✭✭dsmythy


    Like many my BB was scuppered. Heard a lot of talk about being flexible with your strategy this season so I'll listen and not play it. I'm not in the camp who absolutely must use it in a DGW so I'll wait for that bench opportunity.

    Just did Lamptey to Cancelo after he had a trial on my FH team. He's my VC

    Martinez
    Robertson Cancelo Coufal
    Salah(c) Bruno Grealish Mount
    Vardy Watkins Bamford

    Peacock-F Klich KWP Taylor

    I think Taylor will not be able to take advantage of the double. Might end up only playing Liverpool.

    You better hope neither Manchester team get a penalty :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,346 ✭✭✭Porthallian


    Bruno to KdB for me.
    And DCL to Abraham.

    So, who is gonna be the first popular DGW choice to get themselves injured or suspended in the first game and ruin the second on us?


    Antonio being in the Saturday 3PM game and made of cheese probably puts him top of that list


  • Registered Users Posts: 906 ✭✭✭howareyakid


    McCarthy
    Ogbonna Cancelo Tierney (Dallas, KWP)
    Salah (c) KDB Maddison Grealish (Anguissa)
    Kane Antonio Bamford

    -4. No chips played. Not feeling overly confident but hoping for the best.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,651 ✭✭✭shmeee


    And I havnt even anyone in the early game to get the day going! Have to wait until 2pm to start giving out when Fab isn't fit to start.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,022 ✭✭✭✭Iused2likebusts


    I did kane and son to antonio and salah for -4.
    martinez
    coufal cancelo dias AWB
    salah soucek bruno kdb
    antonio watkins

    Bench boosting with areola tierney saka wood. Id be happy with 15 pts from BB and will be glad to be rid of it so for the 2nd half of the season I wont need to worry about having 15 players.


  • Registered Users Posts: 42,081 ✭✭✭✭Scorpion Sting


    -4

    Martinez
    Coufal Dias Robbo
    Salah ESR KDB (TC) Fernandes Grealish
    Bamford Antonio

    Forster - Dallas KWP Brewster


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,114 ✭✭✭Cypher_sounds


    Martinez
    Dallas Stones Coufal
    Bruno Grealish Foden Salah(tc) Soucek
    Vardy Kane

    Took a -4 to bring Foden and Vardy in for Son and DCL. Continuing with a Spurs double up didn’t feel right with how they are playing lately.

    Triple captain spent on Salah for the craic. It can’t turn out as bad as last seasons abomination that was Manes 5 minutes in a dgw.

    Best of luck all. Let’s go!


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,215 ✭✭✭✭Father Hernandez


    Martinez (Button)

    Coufal, Stones, Holding (Struijk, KWP)

    Grealish, Fernandes, Salah (VC), KDB (C), Soucek

    Bamford, Kane (Brewster)

    -4 played, no other hits/chips.

    8 DGWers all going well.

    GL all.

    Definitely start Kane. Even if you ignore the fact that Kane’s fixture is way better than Lookman’s fixtures. Kane needs approximately half as many minutes per point as Lookman.

    That was pretty much my thinking too I mean ite Kane he's surely twice as good! Actually have no idea how I left it so have the additional fun of finding that out lol!

    First time I have had Antonio in ages so would be typical if it happened early! I don't have kdb but in fairness to everyone here let's just hope all the key players get through OK.
