Ok, this is pretty much what I've settled on (maybe 1 position out):

Ramsdale (Ward)
Trippier, TAA, Dias, James (N Williams)
Salah (C), Martinelli, Kulu (Bailey, Andreas)
Jesus, Kane, Alvarez

wait and see for most
Picked him in Draft, think he's a good shout but the fixtures are a bit awkward for now. Expect him, Johnson, Mitrovic and Solanke to be more popular after the first WC though.

Post-Perišpanić (thanks to Hogmeister for posting about the strongly rumoured spurs lineup in GW1), I've basically just gone back to the old draft with Robertson in for Diaz, Foden slotting into the 8.0 slot and Bailey back in as the enabler. Effectively the only change from my draft earlier in the week was going double Leicester keepers and using the 0.5 to upgrade Perisic to James.

I obviously fear Kane and Son, but you can't have everyone and if I did put Kane in I'd probably just fear Haaland anyway.

Good luck everyone, I think given most drafts vary by just a few players that scores are gonna be generally bunched up.

muld wrote: 05 Aug 2022, 00:33 I like this Archy, I also have Rashford, think he'll be an early bandwagon if he baggs a goal/assist in GW1 and is an awkward price point (not much value at 6/6.5 (only Rashford and Matinelli and I have both), the better value comes at 5/5.5 (DWH, Gordon, Baily, Neto) until Rashford). Last season was bad for various reasons but he looks sharp and back at it pre season, 6.5m for a United forward previously priced at 8+ I believe? Scored 170+ points in 19/20, 20/21. I have 9 of the same players, 10 if you make your 4.5 defender Dalot who has been on fire pre season ;). Botman is also a good shout I reckon at 4.5. White / Saliba or AitNouri. They would be my choices there. Having the 8m spot is a good idea as you said you've gone for a differential but can then easily move to Diaz (more difficult with TAA, Robo, Salah ofc), Mount or Saka. I think all teams should have an 8m slot available if possible.
Thanks for the response Muld. You helped convince me on Dalot so he took the final spot in the end. :D

I’m one of the few to have backed KDB in the no.10 role.

Sacrificed a fourth big defender and Jesus to get there, but the rest pretty template (weak bench and Leicester GK gamble too but willing to WC early):

Ward
TAA - Cancelo - Robertson - Dalot - Ait Nouri
Salah (C) - KDB (V) - Martinelli - Bailey
Kane

Iversen, Archer, Andreas, Greenwood

0.5m ITB as Ait Nouri had been Doherty until yesterday and plan to get back to him at some point.

Ended with this, after the Perisic news today caused a quick reshuffle… 532, pretty template, pretty boring, ultra cautious, but I like it :D

Good luck all.

Lucky wrote: 05 Aug 2022, 15:03 Looking at all the teams posted in this thread, in the end it is just down to a choice of 1 - 5 different players and the right captain choice.

Good luck to everyone for the new fpl season.
Lol, and this is during the first game in GW1 too. Teams generally converge over time where we will all have virtually identical teams apart from perhaps 1 player being different and the same captain.

So let's enjoy the 'variety' while we can. :wink:

I assume that amongst the 8m plus players there are some entries who only aim to appear in the no 1 spot either on a certain day or gw. This probably also inflates the number of people playing the FPL game. I have no clue, how this can be satisfactory, but then again there are some weird people in this world.

For better or worse I played the bench boost:

Ramsdale/Ward
TAA/Robertson/Walker/Dalot/Williams
Salah/Mount/Martinelli/Baillie/Neto
Kane/Jesus/Johnson

At peace with that. It can't be worse than my debacle of a bench boost last season.

Options to see who is worth keeping over next couple of weeks then weed the others out.

Where FPL stands for Fist Pump Legend. OR… we’ll, that’s obvious.

What I've started with...was torn between Martinelli/Haaland or Saka/Vardy combos. Hope it turns out well after settling down

Well, quite a start to the GW, Jesus blanks, Liverpool concede 2, Kane blanks in a 4-1 win, Chilwell starts, Fulham and Bournemouth are far from useless and most shockingly of all Wilson doesn't get injured.

Goes to show that GW1 has no respect for any amount of research done, content watched or in the knows consulted.

Yeah the Spurs one was the big one though, depending on Haaland tomorrow.

Quite a bit of variance possible in the Kane vs Haaland debate already - well let's be honest Haaland has won already! Just needs to avoid getting sent off.

Pep might not start him, Kane could win out 2 points to 1 in the first round of biggest pre season debate of them all.

Haaland owners would still be in front imo. Because Kane owners are busily using a transfer this week to bring him in!
