Other three are pva jota coady.

Now wondering whether pva to wan bissaka and zaha to Eriksen or mane is sensible...

Returning to TFF after a long hiatus - the FA cup inclusion always seemed to throw me off course, but let's hope (with a bit of FISO help!) I can get to grips with it for a change :) Sticking to single entrant like FPL. Decided on 4-4-2 and here's what I'm currently going with:

Begovic
Azpilicueta, Mendy, Robertson, Van Aanholt
Salah, Zaha, Richarlison, Jota
Aguero, Aubameyang
0.5 ITB

Good luck all!

So, Wan Bissaka + Eriksen or Mane v Van Aanholt and Zaha. Thoughts?

Could do Wan Bissaka and any midfielder up to 5.6m - Sanchez? - but leaving 0.2m in reserve to do Aguero to Kane seems sensible. Could also do Van Aanholt and Sane over Zaha but I don't think I want City midfield risk.

I'll be back again this year, with my usual "sort of single entrant" approach.

This year I have four teams - my main one, which goes into my mates league. That's my "single entrant team" and the one I'll be chatting to you about on here.

A clone of that team will be in the TFF/FPL Combo league (so same starting line-up and same transfers throughout the season). Keep it as a second team purely because my mates team is public and I want my combo team to be private.

Another clone of my "single entrant team" will start in Murf's Highlander Cup competition, although that team will almost certainly diverge at some point as that competition requires tactical transfers to beat opponents each week, rather than a focus on season-long score.

Finally I have a team as usual in the Egg Cup league (I'm in the Championship this year), which has a predefined (and not very good) starting XI for all entrants.

And I need to start thinking about players before tomorrow evening :)

Good luck everyone...

Ederson
Mendy
Walker
PVA (could become Wan Bissaka and free up 0.7m)
Bailly

Mane (could become someone like Tosun instead?)
Salah
Jota
Zaha

Aguero
King

Seems there is a template developing. I have Auba over King, affordable by having Robertson over Walker. I also have Arnautovic over Mane.

Arnie will feature in my team during the season but I think West Ham might take a while to settle and I don't like their fixtures. Tosun is a better early option than him imo.

Five goals and an assist in six pre-season friendlies though, whereas Everton have been crap in pre-season. What is it they say, form over fixtures?

Ah a new thread. Single entry again this year and it looks like i will start with

Ederson

Robertson Mendy Coady Vestergaard

Eriksen Silva (b) Salah Jota

Ags Aub

Space for kane to come in and small changes once KDB comes back. But ideally wont make changes until the international break

And similar here (quelle surprise!) but no Zaha and plenty of funds to get Kane and others in once things settle.

I'm undecided between Allison and Ederson ...

Ederson has zero minutes pre season but City arguably have the easier starting run.
