If one of my defenders or strikers doesn't play does a mid come off the bench to replace that player or do I end up playing with 10 men?
Yeah, you'll end up with either 4 3 3 or 5 3 2. The only times you don't get a sub is if you'd end up with an illegal formation (less than 3 Defs or no strikers). Then your 1st bench player gets skipped and your #2 comes on, provided that would make a legal formation.
Cheers. I thought it had to be a like for like. Very helpful.

So I've not nailed down the 11th spot yet but posting anyway (Hopefully will get some help with it here)

Ward
TAA, Robertson, Cancelo, 4.5
Salah, Maddison, Rashford, Martinelli
Kane, Jesus
______________________________________
Iversen, Williams, Andreas, Greenwood

I've always liked Rashford as a player and, with him at 6.5 and probably starting up top first game, I feel a compelling urge to shoe-horn him in now. If he scores first game, expect a stampede!

In the £8m spot I've gone Maddison. Wanted another break from the template and he's it. He's probably just keeping the spot warm for Saka, who I expect to be bringing in soon.

So, that tricky 11th spot. I would go White but that would take up a 3rd Arsenal spot so blocks the Saka move. Dalot a possibility but not sold on him and he could anyway be in the naughty corner presently. Can't really see any other 4.5s that appeal? My alternative thought is to pick a 4.0 (Patterson) and then settle for rotating Williams and Andreas each week. This also gives the luxury of 0.5m in the bank so wouldn't be price-pressured into early transfers to catch rises. Thoughts anyone?

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.

Currently very top heavy and both Salah + TAA-less. I expect to chicken out tomorrow morning and go back to something more sensible! :mrgreen:

Mendy, (Henderson)
Robertson, Cancelo, Trippier, (Saliba, Justin)
Diaz, Maddison, JWP, Guimaraes, (Andreas)
Kane, Jesus, Vardy

That's definitely bold no Salah and TAA, I've not had a single draft without them. No Son either means you have none of the top 3 from last season making captain choices more prone to variance ;). I've never picked JWP in any teams, not sure why, he's solid enough. Keep an eye on Vardy situation as there could be a bid coming for him. Does that team add up to 100m? Robbo to TAA would make you feel a lot safer imo ;). It is possible to include TAA, Salah, and have that front three. I don't think the defence is great on paper but you still start TAA, Walker and Trips but obviously all your money is up front. Mendy to Henderson would allow Patterson back to Saliba, Dalot or AitNouri or another 4.5

Team below is not my team but a team based on using as many of your picks as possible whilst including TAA and Salah :)

Leicester aren't in the market for a GK. Ward and Iversen as an 8m keeper combination looks outrageously good. Or, it would, if BR could organise a defence.

Ramsdale, Ward
TAA, Robertson, James, Walker, Patterson
Salah, Saka, Rashford, Neto, Andreas
Kane, Jesus, Greenwood

Kane-> Haaland booked in already as Bournemouth look to be the team to target.

Dilemma for me is Walker and Saka or Cancelo and Martinelli. I like two Leicester keepers but CBA when they buy a new one. Having said that, think both Ward and Iversen are decent keepers

I'm on a 5-4-1 at the moment:

Ederson
TAA, Robetson, Cancelo, James, Perisic
Salah, Mount, Martinelli, Bailey (Andreas)
Haaland (Greenwood, Archer)

Have a 4-4-2 draft with Sanchez, Wilson and 4.0 defender instead of Ederson, Perisic and one of the 4.0 strikers.

Might just toss a coin :lol:

Ultra template at the moment :|

Ward (Iversen)
TAA Robbo Cancelo James (Williams)
Salah Saka Martinelli Bailey (Pereira)
Haaland Jesus (Archer)

Not fond of triple ARS attack but will probably just roll with it.

Yeah as a Newcastle fan I don't recommend it. Almiron will start GW1. Murphy won't start many, if any, and will just see minutes from the bench.

If you could go 4.5 keeper and stretch to Almiron/Bailey? Or the two 4.0 keepers and look at Neto/Rodrigo/Gordon for that spot?

I might go for Colbeck instead. Thank you for your thoughts and good luck.

Having real dilemma over:

Rashford + 2x LEI Gks + £0m

vs

Almiron + Martinez + £0.5m

Leaning towards the latter as that 0.5 could be really useful, and Martinez has : bou, EVE, cry to start, and will probably have WC'd by then

I'm still not convinced Cancelo over walker for 2m is money well spent when you drill into the numbers given it's only a 0.7 ppm increase based on last season. Thats only 27 points all season per million gain assuming equal minutes which is more likely this year. little fear on rotation assuming no signings. e.g 2m saved = 54 pts lost, you could upgrade 2x 4m defenders to 5m defenders, e.g Cash, Digne, Perisic, Cucurella, Trips and gain easily double or triple that or Andreas to Rashford etc. Example, the dude who has Murphy+Cancelo. I'd have Walker+Rashford all day. Even last seasons Rashord puts the total at almost double 54 (95).

I’m pretty settled with my team, but still deliberating over:

Saka + James
Or
Sterling + 4.5 Def

Thinking maybe Tomiyasu for the 4.5 Def, or possibly Fofana on the assumption he gets his Chelsea move?

I was on a fairly standard:

Ramsdale/Ward
TAA/Robertson/Cancello/Trippier/Williams
Salah/Mount/Martinelli/Baillie/Andreas
Kane/Jesus/Greenwood

But now, particularly in light of Leicester goalkeeper situation, thinking of BBing and getting it out the way. That's if we have a bit more certainly about Ward (or indeed Iversen) starting.

Would rather move out of 15 playing than into it if that makes sense. Takes advantage of a starting 4 mil GK at Lei and no competition for Walker, both of which might change. And kindish fixtures for Wol, Bou and For.

Might move to this now:
Ramsdale/Ward
TAA/Robertson/Walker/Dalot/Williams
Salah/Mount/Martinelli/Baillie/Neto (or other Wolves)
Kane/Jesus/Solanki

Then trade Solanki and one of Baillie/Neto up/down depending on ongoing desired structure. I often wildcard early so can do it in one go if desired.

Pretty template in the end, flirted with Foden for a while and with Robertson over James, but have landed on a selection with plenty of bandwagon jumping ability to fine tune things over the opening few GWs:

Image

Rashford the cash cow for later work, but no absolute necessity for a GW2 transfer barring any injuries, etc. Double 4.0 keepers just for value and pumping cash into the front 7 where I can, and Perisic the only risky starter I think.
