    If Ronaldo comes to United or City, there's going to be a lot of Wildcards activated during the International break

    Exciting times

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,775 ✭✭✭bmorrissey

    First time in a while now there is a lot of 11M+ viable options. hopefully will get rid of last seasons template of everyone cannot afford to go without either salah or bruno

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,672 ✭✭✭ElTel

    Transferred in Liveramento and Lukaku for TAA and Toney with the two FTs.

    Have 3 City (Jesus Cancelo and Mahrez) and Barnes so unless they perform well this week I will more than likely WC.

    At this rate I will be downgrade salah Bruno to cheaper mids like jota Greenwood then hope I still have cash for Kane lukaku and potentially ronaldo . I will also prob have to cheapen my defence , yikes!!

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,705 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    Haha, Whatever about Bruno who you could probably get away without, Salah i think is a must have at Liverpool, I notice that he's 75% to a drop

    For those with Benrahma, would you be worried that Lingard will end up with West Ham, and disrupt everything? You would have to imagine that any game time that he was going to get has taken a major dent with the pending arrival of Ronaldo? Is there anywhere else he could end up?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,081 ✭✭✭GetWithIt

    Most likely wildcarding tomorrow so looking for a short term option with the transfer this week.

    Thinking of Zaha to Torres as a punt. Any thoughts?

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,398 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*

    To play devil's advocate here, why would West Ham buy Lingard when they have Benrahama playing so well in that position, now that he is settled in the league? Was there an injury last year at West Ham which caused West Ham to bring in Lingard? I can't remember tbh

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,705 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    Not sure about last season but they have European games this year, what would the plan be if Benrahma got injured? I felt last season that they didn’t play great together unless I’m getting players mixed up?

    westham have a very small squad or are very dependent on certain players - if Antonio hamstring goes who steps up?

    I think lingard for 20m if probably decent business and he’ll want to push to get in WC squad. Alternatively United give him new contract and he goes out on loan - otherwise he’s unlikely to play more now.

    Wildcard played to bring in Lukaku and swapping is almost done and Ronaldo transfer has thrown my team selection up in the air a bit. Had Fernandes since the start of the season but have serious doubts now about how he will score in FPL with Ronaldo potentially taking over penalties and free kicks and possible bonus points as well. Have exact funds to switch Fernandes and Ings to Pogba and Kane. Is this a good idea? Any opinions appreciated.

    Im going to wait until we know for certain what the penalty situation is at United. Lots of people saying Ronaldo will demand them but Bruno has a good record of scoring them as well. Ronaldo is not set to make his debut until after the international break against Newcastle on September 11th anyway so its not an urgent decision for this deadline.

    Im not too worried about direct free kicks as such a low percentage of attempts are ever scored anyway but if Bruno were to be taken off penalties then suddenly he is not worth his £12m price.

    Any shouts for a Toney replacement under 6.5m ?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,396 ✭✭✭macraignil

    I think Adam Armstrong has looked lively at Southampton at 6mill.

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,617 ✭✭✭✭Muahahaha

    Would say Armstrong as well if you intend playing him. If benching him then Dennis at Watford 5.1m would leave you money to spend elsewhere next week. He has started both games so far and got a goal and assist vs Villa

    edit- Dennis is due to rise in price to 5.2m after 2am

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,054 ✭✭✭wanderer100

    Thanks guys. Think I'm going to go for Armstrong but I am probably going to bench him. Wasn't initially planning on using my last transfer this week but I've decided to use my Wildcard after this GW to bring in Ronaldo, Lukaku, TAA etc so I thought I may as well just use it

    My GW3 team:


    Shaw, Dier, Coufal,

    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Raphinha, Barnes,

    Antonio(C), Ings

    Bench: Foster, Armstrong, Tsimikas, White
