after settling on Cancelo + Bailey over Walker + Rashford I started tinkering again and now landed on another dilemma:

a) Robertson + Bailey + Mount
b) Trippier + Rashford + Diaz + 0.5 ITB

Meslier
Zinchenko Robertson Patterson
Bailey Diaz Salah saka
Kane Toney Jesus

Sanchez, Bruno, Williams, Lamptey

Ditched Haaland for Kane but do feel I need a City player in for the Bournemouth game next week.

If Everton can sign Broja I'd jump on him at 5.5 ahead of Toney but if it does happen it's not happening quickly!

Going with

Ward / Iversen
TAA / Robertson / Cancelo / James / (Williams)

Salah (C) / Martinelli / Bailey / Mount / (Andreas)

Jesus / Haaland

Still undecided:

Kane & Foden vs Haaland & Mount

***
Obvious punt in Foden, im not so sure he will start but im pretty sure he will play. And Foden Are able to score also when subbed in.
Mount with The better fixtuere and security of start.

Kane probably will score vs SOU but «only» has 28,6% compared to Haaland 44% ownership.
Im not loosing to much ground with Haaland if Kane scores (and Haaland also has a high possibility to score).

Probably will go with Mount / Haaland as this will give me an extra week to decide what city mid to go with VS BOU.
(this most be The best game all year for city? With a fresh team, 1 game played, first game can be a bit tricky, and home vs a promoted).

I think any City mid can manage 12 points vs BOU if starting. And potential for first +20 points haul?

Also a bit into WC already in GW 3 as I want Saka (vs bou) and could switch out Robertson for Nunez (as I may want Nunez or Diaz in GW 4 when pool play BOU.
Also fancy Kane vs WOL / Forest (3/4) and possible punt on Persic if hes in form.
GK situation (Leicester) may also be clearer and theirs a chance Bailey will loose his spot.

A Jesus free zone….

Iversen
TAA / James / Walker / Trippier / Zinchenko
Salah (c) / Son / Martinelli
Haaland / Watkins

Ward/Andreas/Lavia/Archer

All the best to all!
And remember, whichever 8mio mid you’ve finally plumped for……it’s the wrong one! ;-)
Enjoy, but if you can’t then walk away.

I'd be worried about Mings, lost the captaincy and Villa defence is Cash, Digne, Carlos and one from Chambers, Konsa and Mings.

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.

A.

Iversen (ward)

Cancelo-TAA-James-perisic-(Patterson)

Salah-rashford-Neto-mount-(Andreas)

Ward Iversen
TAA Robertson Cancelo Zinchenko (Patterson)
Salah Martinelli Bruno G (Andreas, Dasilva)
Kane, Jesus, Havertz

obviously torn on Haaland/Kane. I had Son and Mendy but my brother convinced me to go with Salah. Havertz is obviously a risk and I'm not sure about Bruno G either but not a lot of convincing options in MF for 6.0 or less.

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
Yeah, I've ripped it all up and included TAA now (stole your GK+Walker suggestions!). Still Salah-less as I think the money is better distributed elsewhere. I will no doubt rectify in a GW2/3 wildcard :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Mendy, (Ward)
Robertson, TAA, Walker, Trippier, (Saliba)
Sterling, Diaz, Sancho, Foden, (Andreas)
Kane, Jesus, (Taylor)

That's fair enough as you do have 3 liverpool anyway still. Diaz could run Salah close, nobody knows :) I do like the Sterling pick, I think he's a good differential. Fair play for going slightly different but still looks good on paper (don't they all at this stage haha)

Anyone tempted by J-lingz? He's a bit of a prat, but figure he could do well like he did for West Ham.

A GW1 free hit, as I will be wildcarding into my longer term plan from GW2:

Ward (Iversen)
TAA / Trippier / Doherty / Cash / (Patterson)
Salah (c) / Mount / Zaha / (Bailey) / (Andreas)
Kane / Darwin / Wilson

Might still swing from Mount to Saha, or even Maddison, but am trying to leave it well alone now.

I think I've ended up on:

Ramsdale [Ward]
TAA/Robertson/Dias/James [N Williams]
Salah/Martinelli/Rodrigo [Moutinho, Reed]
Kane/Jesus/Mbuemo

With 0.5m ITB and expected first transfer Kane to Haalaand.

Very template in the big names but a few differentials in the lower-priced attackers. I really wanted an 8.0m midfielder (or two!) but it just didn't work out and maybe I am light in midfield, cerrtainly against the norm. I was sat on Cancelo for a long time but a deep dive into the Snout-o-matic Value Stats showed little, if any advantage over a fully fit Dias. Plus I'm not so keen on Cancelo being stuck out on the left (and neither is he apparently). Freeing up that money allowed an upgrade from a bargain bin attacker.

So I posted this in Hoggs RMT thinking it was this thread

Lec 4.0s
TAA/Robbo//Cancelo/Walker/Neco
Salah/Kulu/Martinelli/Bailey/Andreas
Kane(c)/Jesus/Archer

I’ve been on Saka for ages and swapped him out due to being uncomfortable with an Arsenal triple up.
Then was on Maddison for ages until the Newcastle rumours started to become a factor.

As I seem to be playing very conservatively, it’s not between Kulu and Mount.
Kulu gets my nod due to spurs fixtures and just having Kane feels like not enough.

The other common dilemma of Perisic is tackled by having Walker.

I have 1.0 in the bank which allows for easy GW2 band wagon boarding for the above mentioned options or Bailey to Bruno G/Neto or even Martinelli to Grealish/Rashford. Also opens and easy Jesus to Nunez option

I’ve had this team for a few hours and no info available currently is making me want to change it.
cue Blah with objections!

A lot of tinkering later…

Iversen, Ward
TAA, Robertson, James, Walker, Zinchenko
Salah, Mount, Rashford, Neto, Andreas
Kane (C) Jesus, Archer

At peace with booking in Kane -> Haaland (C) for GW2. GKs too good an option to turn down after all. £8m mid a real head scratcher with Mahrez, Kulu and Saka in the mix. Unconvinced by Rashford and Neto but they’re inexpensive and the comfort blanket of an extra wildcard helps.

Doherty wasn't in the line up posted by the Spurs ITK so you might want to rethink that one
