Free Hit GW30

FREE HIT TIME! GW30

Seeing as I've currently only got 6 players for GW30 I suspect I will be using one of my FH chips - and I also suspect I will not be alone.

Wolves v Leeds
Villa v Arsenal
Leicester v Brentford
Tottenham v West Ham

Money doesn't seem to be an object so fill all the spots and then worry about who to bench maybe?

Sa Ramsdale
White Coady Doherty Cash Söyüncü
Saka Son Coutinho Maddison Raphinha
Kane Jiménez Toney

is my first draft.

Agreed. Wouldn't be putting a Leeds player anywhere near a Free Hit team.

It would have been Bowen. Maybe Barnes instead.

I haven't started to sort mine out, but I'm not sure planning a Bench Boost XV is the way to go.

It should 100% be Barnes.

3 Wolves, 3 Villa, 3 Arsenal, 3 Leicester, 3 Spurs is how I'd be looking to structure a Free Hit, if the funds allow for it.

There are so few games and money doesn't seem to be a major factor so I don't think it's a major mistake. Maybe drop to 14 but you ceratinly want a playing bench as illness still seems to jump out unexpectly at the moment. I'd hate to play the FH and end up with <11 players.

If go with s similar approach ie pick the wins and CS's then the players - not that I would go near the Foxes (unless their fixtures are really soft).

Yes to 13 or 14, but I wouldn't want to be frying my last brain cell on who to Bench and then watch them haul....

Sa Ramsdale

Kane Jiménez Ings

leaves me 1.3m in the bank

(Toney over Ings though maybe)

I think Wolves are more likely to get a CS, than Jimi is to score.

I don’t like the idea of having Maddison and Barnes both in the XV but then having to pick just one of them for the XI (I’d like to play a front 3, probably Kane, Laca, Jimenez). But as well as Maddison or Barnes, I seem to need Son, Coutinho and Saka.
My ideal Leicester 3 would’ve included Pereira and Vardy + one midfielder, but obviously that ain’t gonna happen. Whoever I put in the XV I can’t seem to spend the full budget.

Picking from those teams could be impossible to get near full budget?

Yeah, if you want to spend your whole budget why don't you throw a few Man City attackers in there. :lol:

As RPG said above, money doesn’t seem to be an object. Then, as PB said, picking from the four home teams + Arsenal looks solid. So there’s going to be a lot of similar FHs

Pretty much unavoidable in a BGW. You'll still have an edge over non-Free Hitters, which I guess is the whole point of playing the chip in the first place.

My first guess/plan:

Sa
2 Wolves x
Cout, Son, Erik y
Kane, Toney(?) z

z - Jimi is possible, which means Wolves +2 atb.

Because you can't trust Tierney to be fit for 5 minutes.
