I wouldn’t think so. Transfer out one of VVD/Robbo for a city defender or Digne and you’re gravy

Any thoughts on this - toying around with going for a big midfield

Pope / Ryan

Coleman / Wan-Bissaka / Suyuncu / Lundstram / 4.5m TBC

Mané / de Bruyne / Martial / Sterling / Son

Jota / Wesley / Greenwood


The defence and Wesley is TBC but I like the look of it. I don't feel like i'd be giving up too much in defence for a midfield that I really like.

Kane Barnes Greenwood


A slight tweak to get Mount in a 5 man midfield instead of Emerson in the backline.

Will be looking at Jota tonight as a possible replacement for Barnes as he has 2 tough games coming up next and maybe AWB/Maguire or Martial will propel themselves into consideration tonight.

Apologies, it would be Greenwood or some other 4.5m scrub who can act as a 3rd sub.

On wildcard myself and have switched from Zinchenko to Wan Bissaka in the current team. Might switch back if United concede this evening as Zinchenko is not flagged as being injured. Zinchenko is also more a rotation liability so currently thinking Wan Bissaka is the better option.


Now on:


Ederson(Button)
Wan Bissaka, Digne, Dunk, Pieters, Lundstram
Mane, Sterling, Martial, Ceballos, Dendoncker
Kane, Barnes, Pukki


with .3mill in the bank. Hoping Digne knock is not very serious and will make decision on Martial and Wan Bissaka after this evenings game. Much lighter on defense than previous team but the premium defenders I had were not performing. Any suggested changes appreciated.

I’ve decided to not WC.

Dont think there is too much advantage by WC now. A wild card play should be a swing in points & at this point it feels like far too many unknowns & jumping the gun moves

Despite having called him a trap last week I’ve completely rejigged to get Martial in

M-Niles is there as a placeholder, could be Boly

Pope/McGovern
M-Niles/KWP/Dunk/Lundstrum/Soyuncu
Mane/KDB/Sterling/Martial/Ceballos
Pukki/Kane/Wickham

Posted this in the GW3 transfer thread until I seen there was a WC one.

Wildcard active. Currently running a team without Liverpool cover as I feel there is almost just as good options for lower the price and although it feels strange going without Salah/Mane for the foreseeable, I don't see where I'll be captaining either given City's fixtures (until say, GW.

I also really want to fit in De Bruyne & Rashford, and I believe the price point of Martial, Mount, and Ceballos are too good to pass up a midfield slot.

Does this strategy sound crazy? Granted I'll probably cave as the thought of No Salah terrifies me. Currently running with:

GK: Adrian (Button)
DF: Wan Bissaka, Zinchenko, Walkers-Peters (Soyuncu, Lundstram)
MD: Sterling, De Bruyne, Martial, Mount (Ceballos)
FD: Kane, Rashford, Pukki

Might switch out Adrian for someone else as he's a substitute waiting to happen.

Nothing wrong with the Adrian pick. Yes it’s a transfer but it’s Liverpool defensive cover for a couple of games. You have 8 playable attackers so might not need a transfer 1 of the GW’s.

Personally I’d be getting him or Henderson (SHU)
