    Now that he’s settled back into Palace, is Zaha a must in midfield? Also., who at city gets Sane’s spot now that he’s gone for knee surgery? Also, how do you choose between TTA and Robertson?

    Was reading comments about TAA and Robbo and the thing they said was TAA will be rotated before VVD and Robbo, but think he will be higher points overall. Sane has been sold I believe, and no Zaha for me, rather Fraser for .5m more.

    Thanks. I opted for B Silva now that Sane is out for the foreseeable future. After last night I’m inside the FPL top 100000. That is as high as I will get!

    It’s alright for a first crack. You don’t really have a Captain option, that’s the biggest stand out. I’d be looking to get one or Salah, Sterling, Mane, Kane or Auba in within the first couple weeks. The maximum you want to spend on keepers is 10.0. There’s 2 strategies for keepers. 1. Either go a set and forget keeper. This could be a premium such as Ederson, lloris or any 5.0+. Second keeper a 4.0 that doesn’t play. Keeper injuries and rotation is super rare, what happened to Allison last night is abnormal. Some people even run a 4.5… Read more »

    You do get double game weeks and it is best to save the chips till then.

    They could do well.

    But your Salah, Sterling, Mane, Kane, Auba are your Teddy, Turbo, Ponga types. When they have good matchups more often than not they produce.

    Double for the Captain, just the normal score for VC. Double for your VC if your Captain doesn’t take the field.

    If TAA is first on your bench yes.

    If a player in your 11 doesn’t play, the first player on your bench will always replace them unless it causes an illegal formation (e.g. you play 343 and your third defender doesn’t play, and first on your bench is a midfielder. In that case second off the bench would replace them).

    Why on earth did you pay so much money for a Reserve? If you have TAA then you play him!

    Newbie at this myself OTB but the way I read it, your subs are numbered 123 with 1 being your first preference to play in case of a substitute requirement.

    Allison could work out good for you. Pep has said the injury might be worse than first opinions. Reserve keeper Adrian is okayish and $4.5m.Nice cash grab if out for long term.

    You will get whoever your first sub is on your bench. The only way this wouldn’t occur is if the following scenarios existed. – Your starting team had 3 defenders (3-5-2 or 3-4-3) and your first sub is an attacker. In this scenario you would get your first defender on your bench regardless of whether theres an attacker in the first spot as you can’t play 2 at the back -Your starting team has 1 striker ( 5-4-1 or 4-5-1) and your first sub is a defender or midfielder.

    In your scenario you will get Trent as your formation will just go to a 4-3-3.

    Downgrade Allison to a 4.0 and spend it on your attack.

    No point having so much money on the reserve keeper as only one can play, therefore score. You choose a top line keeper and a 4.0 or 4.5 (like Ryan). You need Salah or Sterling or both preferably!

    Definitely hasn’t left. Lampard rejected Evertons attempts at signing him. He will start next few weeks and hopefully locks that spot down with Rudiger. Im not playing him this week, played Rico instead. Bit risky but i spent many a nights making sure it was worth it. Means i can use my trade next week without having to get a chelsea 5.0 CB!

    Hey guys just been scouring the FPL site and there is a league you can join for nix and get 1 years free subscription to the scout if you win.” Last man standing” code BCVY39. Bit of fun. And if you see that you are way down in the rankings do not throw it in, fair few players used thier triple captain on Salah and have got 36 points plus other players scores for round 1. Triple C best used on “double game week chips” as are most” chips” I have read. GL to all.

    Thanks. Thank God for that, How good is it when your team is able to have a bench containing Aguero, and not to even have to play Cancelo, B Silva, Otamendi, or Stones. Then you’ve got Mendy and Sane not even on the bench. City may really struggle this year!

    Captaining Sterling is making me feel a lot better about not owning Salah. Hope Kane makes some big returns to justify my decision of him over Salah/Auba.
