Danny Rose left out if pre season trip, and was apparently allowed to "explore other clubs". Of course Ben Davies is at bloody 5.5m!

Greenwood will be 4.3 by Christmas. He's 17 there's no way solskjaer will trust him in the PL, Mata Lingard James all ahead of him in the pecking order.

He'll be gone in the first WC most likely. However if a 4.5m striker for a top 6 side is getting decent minutes he offers excellent value to start with in comparison to the other dud's.

I'm building my team around Kane and KDB - both underpriced imo.

Had a look at fixtures today and Chelsea’s really do look good. Think they will get a result v Utd on opening day and their fixtures after that are very nice with Leicester (h), Norwich (a) and Sheff U (h) taking them to the international break - they have a v nice run from weeks 5-12 then too.

If I knew any one of Alonso, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Giroud or Abraham were nailed I’d be very interested.

Have a suspicion he will start with Abraham over Giroud up top so the fact they haven’t added him to the game is really irritating me. Alonso in a system with wing backs would be nice too, 6.5 is a very generous price for the Alonso we knew pre Sarri. And can see whoever is in that no.8 midfield role having plenty of license to get into the box ala Lampard himself in his playing days. Hudson-Odoi is the one who I think will be nailed and provide great value for 6.0 but he isn’t due back til after GW4 as far as I know so will have to wait on that.

Doing a spread sheet on the opening 4 and 6 fixtures not sure if I will be able to post it but will give the results anyway. I’m using the following as a guide with a 1.25 factor for home and away let me know what you think, highest score has the best fixtures.
MNC, LIV difficultly of 1 (team scores 1.25 if playing them at home/ 0.8 if away)
ARS,CHE,MUN,THO 5 (6.25 h, 4.00 a)
EVE, LEI, WOL 8(10h, 6.4a)
BOU,CPL,WAT,WHU 12 (15h, 9.6a)
BUR,SOT 15(18.75h, 12a)
AVI,BRI,NEW,NOR,SHU 20(25h, 16a)
In other words BOU,LIV,THO,WAT, will all score 25 pats on the opening day of the season, while Norwich will have 0.8 and West Ham 1.25
If anyone thinks that the difficulty levels need tweaking let me know.
Current standings for 4 games:
ARS 41.8
AVI 38.6
BOU 52.25
BRI 44.15
BUR 30.4
CHE 55
CPL 55
EVE 50.6
LEI 45
LIV 55.25
MCI 50.45
MUN 39.65
NEW 41.25
NOR 41.65
SHU 38.6
SOT 35.5
TOT 54.8
WAT 62.4
WHM 51.85
WOL 44.05
So Watford, Liverpool, Chelsea, Palace, Spurs all good, Burnley, Saints, Sheffield Utd, Villa, Man Utd all bad.
First 6 Games
ARS 76.4
AVI 57.6
BOU 74.25
BRI 78.9
BUR 71.4
CHE 62.65
CPL 69
EVE 85.2
LEI 55.25
LIV 84.25
MCI 81.45
MUN 59.25
NEW 67.05
NOR 54.9
SHU 63.75
SOT 66.5
TOT 76.2
WAT 69.45
WHM 74.1
WOL 59.9
So its Everton, Liverpool, Man City, Brighton, Arsenal, all good, Norwich, Leicester, Villa, Man United, Wolves all bad.

Coleman? Great fixtures and Everton kept 8 out of 11 CS at the end of last season. No zouma is an issue

Haller added at 7.5m bit pricey for me.

Just noticed that Everton are down as a 4 difficulty rating. Although they are improving, I'd have them down as a 3. Just something I'll take caution on when I immediately see red on the fixtures!

With that in mind, Sheffield Utd's opening fixtures are not too bad: BOU (a), CRY (H), LEI (H), CHE (a), SOU(H) and EVE (a). Tempted to punt on McGoldrick at 5.5, if I get wind that Calvert Lewin won't be nailed on.

Is Foyth likely to slot in a RB for Spurs with Trippier gone? And is Angelino a likely starter for City? Surely given they went and signed a specialised LB

With Trips sold we have, Aurier, KWP & Foyth potentially to play RB/RWB.

Foyth played RB a couple of games at the end of the season and also played there for Argentina in the Copa. He cut his summer holidays and honeymoon short to go our tour in Asia with the Spurs squad so I'd expect him to play RB over there as Aurier didn't travel. He picked up a knock in the AFCON. And KWP hasn't been fancied by Poch recently, but is a natural RB and did sign a 5 year deal last year.

Foyth also ott sent off at the end of the PL, which means he is suspended for the first two league games, so no point in having him in your team from the off.

So a wait and see verdict from me.

Foyth can play there. (Has done so for Argentina;I think he's had a few games at RB for Spurs?). Assuming Alderweireld leaves, Vert, Sanchez and at a push Dier are the options for CB. So he's unlikely to be a wing back when they play five at the back. I'd have Aurier ahead of him for the RB slot.

Re signing Angelino suggests that there are questions over Mendy.
Pep gave Angelino some coaching during a water break against WHU in their recent friendly. He'd a tough day at the office. Zinchenko is the one to go for atm.
