Nonchalantly scoring the winner...
I purposely didn’t bring him in - nor any City defenders. Liverpool being stopped is too important and my team is genuinely cursed this season.

Brought in Mee, then Doherty, then White, then Mina… all injured within a week.

Played a BB of White, Mina and Dennis… literally all got injured.

Anything to stop the dippers.

Sure you weren't alone. Some decisions bite. Kdb (especially as Captain) was a big swing this week
For me, the mount points hurt more because my rival had him and I had Havertz.

He's managed to cut a 50 points lead to 12 (I still have Kulu and Kane though) despite me having 2x FH on him.

I REALLY need my FH next week to save me.

This would be my free hit side if going agressive.

Pickford
Mykolenko Digne Cash
KDB Son Zaha Maddison
Richarlison Watkins Vardy

If playing it safe maybe add TAA and Salah if you can.

Gordon is a good enabler if you want Salah, KDB and Son.

I have 126 with 4 to play, but I didn't captain KDB :(

Still really happy overall though!

Behind the right goal post as "Whiteside shoots!"

It brought the leader in our work league from 70ish points ahead to 29. Now feels possible, FH will be huge.

In Caf league, back on the first page and just noticed two points behind you…. I’m coming for you (in a FF way, not a stalky, follow you home from work, watch you from a tree kind of way). Not sure where Sandy is.

0.2m short of making a -16 I would be happy with. Wanted to go Kane, Kulu, Ramsdale, Alonso and Saka to Richarlison, Zaha, Pickford, Cash and Son.
Could go Digne over Cash. Go big or go home I'm thinking after this GW.

So my plan is Ramsdale to Pickford for a -4. I was close to do it this week, but did fancy Ramsdale vs Leeds.

Mahrez to Zaha. That one I am 100% doing. Mahrez will score a hattrick if he start, but 3 benchings in a row would just kill me.

Broja to Richarlison. Clear uppgrade I think so worth a -4.

Saka/Mount to Maddison maybe worth a -4. Only question is will Maddison start every game?

Me too. I just want this season to end now. Feel like I've been on the wrong end of every call this season. Chelsea batter Norwich, I have Havertz. City batter someone, I ALWAYS have the wrong attacker. Son goes mental, I have Kane.

I just..want it..to end.

Despite all that and an awful rank (for me) of 133k I'm still 300 pts clear in one cash league and 4 pts clear in another.

I have to get my transfer right this week. If Watkins is out then I keep Countino and swap him to Richarlison.

Bring in Ings as well for Jesus?

Jesus to Rich if Watkins is ok?

Do I remove Mane for KDB/Son?

Bring in Pickford for Foster or Ramsdale?

Whatever I decide it will inevitably be a total shitshow.

Yeah mine is similar to that to be fair. No Vardy though but I have Salah.

I should look at the caf league, never do for some reason. You can't follow me home, in actually homeless at the moment :lol:
Felt that way, rank went down by thousands every time he scored:(
Yep :(

Not sure if anyone else is paying attention to the mid-table situation?

The interesting situation is as such....

From 9th place to 14th place managers could be in a fight to be able to be in the top 10 of the league. This could be a very important psychological strategy for players going into next season. That whole 'Top Half of the Table' is also something fans would appreciate.

9. Brighton 47 pts
10. Leicester 45 pts
11. Crystal Palace 44 pts
12. Aston Villa 43 pts
13. Brentford 43 pts
14. Newcastle 43 pts

There are lots of points that will likely be racked up scrapping between these teams.

I could fill this post with another 500 words in explaining my conclusion, but FPL Scout came to the same thinking as I have, Aston Villa are the best bet for points in the final few matches. I'm pretty sure Steven Gerrard will want the bragging rights of 'Top Half of the Table'. https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co...y-selection-villa-triple-up-for-final-double/

If I had a any extra hits, I'd probably go with Toney.
I really wanted to get Zaha. He's score two of the last two matches, but I just couldn't fit him in.

Only have a quarterback in this game and somehow he has a brace. It's a Christmas miracle!

Come on Son. Do something useful. My draft rival has Kane, James and KDB. He is killing us all.

Still unsure what to do with Robertson and Salah. Have a feeling if City beat West Ham, Klopp will look to rest a lot of his players in the final two games.

Robbo definitely a keeper for Soton imo. Soton is not looking good and on holiday mentally, but considering Salah > KdB myself.

Fell from 6k to 14k this week. Yuk!

Salah really has turned to shit these last few weeks. Should have gone to KDB which many people did and boy were they rewarded.

Hopefully FH 37 will get me back into top 10k.

My collapse over the last few weeks has been amazing. I was 117 points ahead of second place in my league before GW35 and now it’s down to 21 points. We both used FH now and he got 60 points over me.

Dreading the last two weeks.

Jesus how many high scores. I got 140 and it is one of my highest for a long time.

I am way over safety score at 107, but many bench boosters with KDB(cap) have insane scores.

one of my two trades was for Cash, but i'm playing it conservative instead of aggressive. I just want to maintain my rank until the end of the season.
