    19 people so far. Can't really say I even know 19 people in this forum lol.

    Think there’s like, 7/8 Liverpool guys, 5 Chelsea guys, 3/4 Arsenal guys and a few of the lower league teams and the rest will be united fans.

    Brings the forums a bit closer together throngs like this.

    In my experience the Arsenal fans usually win this :smirk:. Only exception was when Leicester won the league and Ash captained Vardy every week from GW1. Even then I think he may have finished second thinking about it :D

    How the **** you came back in the second half still astounds me :lol:

    iirc I transferred in Zaha for the final gameweek and he got me 3 assists in the second half 🤔

    it's a sign

    Kicked out Rneem Swedan.

    SmellsLikeTeamSpirit (Ripunjay Kalita) and MoSalad (Nicholas Speller) have a few hours to identify before I kick them.

    I know who the other 16 are.

    Ripunjay and Nicholas have been kicked out.

    With the addition of WelshWizard, we've got 17 confirmed people.

    Nameless (Paul Lobban) has a few hours to confirm his identity before he gets banned too.

    Any tip of a 5.0 midfielder that's better than the 5.5 choices? Currently have Moutinho, but could really do with an extra 0.5
    Probably going not 343 for the first time I've been playing FPL, looks like value might be found in defence.

    The only good 5mil option I can see is Jorginho. With Hazard leaving, he'll probably be on pens and Chelsea should get quite a few as they have some decent dribblers. Under Lampard, it's fairly likely that Kante will play CDM. Jorginho will probably play a bit further forward, which increases his assist potential. Also, selecting 5mil mids from the top teams is never a bad idea, because they'll get more clean sheet points.

    Yeah he was my first thought aswell. Will wait and see how well Chelsea do and how they line up in pre-season. Wonder when their other players like Abraham, Mount, James make it into FPL.
    edit: might Jorginho be taking corners and indirect free kicks too maybe? At least if Willian does not play.
    On another note, Lee Grant is 5M :joy:

    Yeah we don't know if Jorginho is a guaranteed starter yet and there's still generally a lot of uncertainty around Chelsea. Could be a good pick though.

    and I wouldn't even pay 5m for De Gea :D

    Worth noting for those looking at percentage ownership at this early stage, there's still only ~850k players at the moment, there's normally like 6 million by the time the season starts, isn't there? Players that people are worried out leaving out due to high ownership might change as more players sign up for this year

    Nobody should be set on their teams anyway as transfers can happen at any time at the moment. For example if we sign Fernandes i would put him in my team, but obviously cant atm.... so high percentage players are ones that yeah a lot believe will do well but a fair amount of people just see the % and jump on the bandwagon

    I totally revamped my team yesterday again 🤦‍♂️😂

    Have a feeling Mane might miss out a bit on the start of the season (doubt it, but there’s a chance) so swapped him for Sterling

    Is he still at afcon or how far did he get? (I put him in ffs). Wondering if he might get an extended break.

    Yeah still at AFCON. Senegal is in the semis and likely to make the finals. Klopp usually gives players 3 weeks off from there last game. I’d guess he still starts the season but it’s looking likely he might get some time off.

    Ah cheers will have to relook at my team and who may replace him for now then.

    Thoughts on what his price will be if that's right? £8m?

    Edit: It is right:

    Don't think he should be more expensive than Jimenez at 7.5, 8.0 at a stretch. Has been an absolute machine for Frankfurt last season but needs to prove it in the PL I'd say. Could be a real bargain tho

    Yeah I think so too hence why I posted, could be a good option. Be interested to see what they price him at

    Difficult to say imo, depends where you'd spend the extra money if you went with Pukki. Feel like the best value for money is Deulofeu personally.

    Will be one to consider for me.

    Good player, good team, but unproven.

    I've had to do the same for him :joy: Had to rework some of my midfield to free up the funds to get him in the team, taken Mane out as well given he's looking likely to miss the start of the season.
