    Nice job with setting up that side for this GW. I knew pretty early on I was screwed as am too heavy on Utd, City, Wolves and Palace players to shift enough of them to field a full team. When are you planning to free hit?

    Are the fixtures not yet confirmed for 32? What can change?

    Did a -4. Fielding 9 players. Can't really get rid of Pogba,l Rashford or Jimenez, as I've got to much money tied up in them, and will need them next GW.

    Anything above average will be more than welcome.

    Long term planning for this week should do me good . Got 12 players ready and overall comfortable. This squad is quite alright for GW33 too. Freehit in GW32 and WC in 34

    Schmeichel-(Speroni)
    Chilwell-Arnold-Robertson-Alonso-(Wan B)
    Fraser-Hazard-Mane-Maddison-(Pogba)
    Higuain-Wilson-Barnes

    Do you know when/what date after GW31 do we have some certainties? Ben Crellin's twitter is a bit messy sometimes, because of so many scenarios

    Sadly not. I imagine it will be very early next week though.

    11 players for me without the freehit (-4).

    Fabianski
    David Luiz / Pereira / Rice / Robertson
    Hazard / Salah / Mane / Almiron
    Wilson / Higuain
    Jimenez and Pogba on the bench due to the value tied up in them.

    I really have no idea what to do.

    I have all my chips left including WC and my feeling was to keep them, but what exactly am I keeping them for?

    Yes I can field 9 players this week, its an ok team but its not the best as it has the likes of Hayden starting.

    --------------Fabianski
    ----Pereira - A.Arnold - Luiz
    Hazard - Fraser - Hayden - Salah
    ---------------Vardy

    (Aguero, Jimenez, Pogba, Wan Bissaka, not playing. I have too much money invested in them to make any switches)

    Yes I know I'm like a broken record.

    You're doing fine, mate! That's a decent team for the blank gameweeks in 31 and 33, even if you are holding said players. Regarding your chips, this is what I'd do: play your free hit in between the blanks, in 32. Then prepare for WC in 34 (you can start this planning now in fact, and look to get in Kane), play your BB in 35 (so stack your team with double gameweek players with your wc), and then TC in 37 or 38.

    Regarding FH and WC: The free hit works as a WC for one gameweek, meaning price rises would be the same when using the FH as the WC. So, activate your FH at kickoff on Saturday, and get in all the MVPs for 32 already this weekend (United and City especially). Use fantasy football fix' price predictor if you are unsure about who's price is changing (it's for free). Do the same when you activate the WC.

    Top response mate, really appreciate that :) I'll follow that plan.
    I have a FT left this week also so I might be able to get 10 players on the pitch (Wan Bissaka to a West Ham or Newcastle defender, maybe).
    Salah v relegated Huddersfield in GW36 might be a nice TC option.

    No problem. Btw, use your transfer on a player who also plays in 33, and focus more on that fixture than the one in 31. I think there's way more viable options for your money in 33.

    Hi all, I am more or less in the same situation as IrishRedDevil.

    The thing is that I have already played my FH (I used on week 14, can’t remember why..). So the only bonusses I have available are: Wildcard, TC and Bench Boost.

    I will be able to line-up 9 players this week, these ones being:

    Alisson
    Robertson – David Luiz
    Hazard – Salah – Kante – Snodgrass
    Wilson – Vardy


    My idea is to use the Wild Card for next week and bring as many United, City and Chelsea players due the Double Week, but then I am a bit stuck of what to do..


    Any ideas?

    Much appreciated guys, have a lovely day!

    (Actually now I have only 6 players available for this week, but I will bring Hazard, Vardy and Wilson tomorrow for this week with a -4 hit)

    I bloody wish I didn't use my FH chip already.

    I still have a wildcard at least.

    You've got the right idea. 33 might be a bit of a problem for you though. 3 Chelsea players will be essential as they don't blank that week and will potentially double in 32.

    The United players definitely won't play in 33 and neither will City unless a miracle happens in the Cup this weekend.

    If it was me I'd aim to try and field 9 players or so again for 33 which means 3 x Chelsea, 5 players that play that week and have decent long term fixtures and 1 transfer that you can make prior to the GW starting and after the first double.

    Keep AWB. He may play in GW33, so no point moving him.

    Thanks guys.

    Peltier is my bench fodder. I’ve 0.5 in the bench, so I might swap him out for Daniels as Bournemouth have Newcastle H GW31 and Burnley H GW33.

    I have 10 players with two FTs that I have to use, as I’m using the free hit next week. Trying to decide whether to get rid of two blanking players in order to have someone on the bench (in case someone doesn’t play). Or transferring out one of my West Ham players due to the fact they play Chelsea in 33.

    I believe there’s a chance Rondon won’t play in 33 if Palace win their FA cup tie, so that might have to be my one FT in that week.

    Didn't realize I only have 7 player for this GW.:houllier:

    Got a question, if I have 2 free transfer this week and decided to use it, and I also use free hit this week, will the first 2 players I transfer with my FT stay on my team next week?

    Higuain at 75%? Wanted to bring him and then leave him there for Chelsea's double

    I'm miles out of the running in my work league and not in the Cafe league as joined on here after the season started. I have all my chips so have free hit in the hope everyone else has used it and I can do a United like climb up the table ;)

    It pains me not to have Salah but I cant really afford him but have gone for the following.had I not free hit I only had Robertson, Mane, Perreira and Fabianski!

    -GK- Fabianski. Ryan (no game)

    -Defence: Robertson, Rice & Pereira (bench Tarkowski & Bennet)

    -Midfield- Hazard (V), Mane (C), Fraser, Tielemans & Sigurdsson

    -Strikers- Vardy & Firmino. (Bench- Wilson)

    0.4 in the bank with a squad value of 100m

    Guess I'll go with Wilson then to be safe. Slightly annoying.

    I know it's highly unlikely you'll need him but why would you have a gk on your bench that definitely doesn't play when you can just put Boruc or someone there. Likewise with Bennett.

    Do I make all my transfers first, and then do the free hit? How do I activate it?

    Make your transfers. When you press confirm, the option for a FH will show up (along with WC).

    I have 7 sort of average players playing this week bar Salah. Brooks and Barnes are my other two midfielders :lol:

    Robertson TAA Higuain and Vardy are the rest.

    Saving the free hit for a double game week (potentially triple for Brighton if they beat Millwall).

    Ended up with a pretty decent team:

    Fabianski

    Rice van Dijk Ake

    Fraser Hazard Tielemans Mané

    Firmino Wilson Rondón

    Mane or Firmino for captain?

    I only had 3 players, so needed a big overhaul, almost an entire new team.

    The opponent tilts it for me. Has to be Salah.

    It's tricky because if you change too much you're missing out on key players in the subsequent weeks!

    I am on -4 already. Worth it to take another -4 to get in Vardy/Wilson?

    Played free hit. What do you guys think?

    Fabianski
    Robertson--Rice--Azpilicueta
    Hazard--Mane--Salah(c)--Felipe Anderson
    Wilson--Vardy--Barnes

    Subs: Boruc, Tielmans, Taylor, Stankovic
