Interesting. Ben Crelling seems to think that Villa V Newcastle could be rearranged to fall in GW19 instead (assuming the Everton match is postponed) so they could still have a double. Might find out later in the week.

Yeah, I mentioned this before. I think it is a possibility, rather than an expected development though, as this game could easily be scheduled for any of the European midweeks, so there should be no difficultly in getting it in. All the other rearranged games have involved teams competing in Europe.

Basically if you own these four this week, you want your captain to haul and the other three to blank. Yeah, the others doing well may help you overhaul more dead teams sooner, but long term, by the end of the season, just your captain doing well is what will have benefited the most.

Getting harder to plan your gameweeks. If Villa/Everton and Leeds/Southampton are postponed, there goes a lot of players who we thought were going to play twice this week.

I think I'll leave my bench boost activated until there is something a bit more concrete with the changing of fixtures.

Was the same last week and my captain did blank and the rest hauled.

Strange how KDB got such crazy ownership? Last week he was super low owned.

A lot of people must have used their free hit to bring him in.

Also looking at the Brighton team, City will surely smash them too.

I think with KDB playing higher than ever up on the pitch has encouraged a lot of people to bring him in as well as there not being too many standout options this game week due to lack of fixtures.

So I slowly bought in 3 Leeds players and 2 Southampton players and none of them have a double :lol:
Same as me mate. I won’t use the bench boost and will probably bin of Che Adams for a -4. It’s more annoying because it’s lessened the impact of using the free hit in 18.

Could this still lead to a triple for Villa then?! Or do we think the Everton game will be off?

Remember that's in the top 10k!
Players of top 10k calibre weren't going to not have that set of 4 players this week!

Strange sinking feeling about De Bruyne tonight.

Supposedly playing as a "false 9" but seems to be just playing his usual position but hardly touching it!

Thought i'd done a magnificent jinx there...as he went through 1-on-1 about 23 seconds later.

Then missed! :eek:

With the doubts surrounding Aston Villa, if Southampton-Leeds is postponed, then I might activate the second wildcard. Problem would be how to use the bench boost.

City 0-0 at half time. Two good chances for De Bruyne.

Should have gone Tottenham attack as cap!

City 1-0 at half time. One assist for De Bruyne....

Still wondering about should I have gone Tottenham attack as cap.

I have Kane and Son but Tottenham tend to do much better against a high mine which Fulham won’t play. I ever Fulham do have some injuries. We’ve also seen Tottenham pack up shop after being up 1-0 so who knows

Can someone talk me out of captaining Antonio please? I currently have it on Bruno for the DGW and I'm considering a rogue move.

Yeah KdB needs another attacking return to justify his selection as captain above the other candidates. Hopefully he grabs a second for Citeh.

Why the bloody hell is Sterling taking the pen!
Bloody hell.

Chance of a 10-16 point extra for De Bruyne to nothing!

Why? I’d fancy Kane to get more than one attacking return against Fulham?
A mere 1 assist with no bonus points against cannon fodder playing further forward, i think is actually looking brilliant for you!
I was writing at half time and was pretty sure that Kdb will add more goals or assists. For example that penalty at the end. Phew, i was lucky there.
Bte, wasn't he pk taker?

Got KDB, but that was lovely. Anyone with Sterling?

Sadly they won anyway. If 0-0 it would have been better, but then KDB would take it.
