Hi guys great site and great advice. 
I’ve been tinkering with my team for weeks and this is my latest.....I really want to put a Man City midfielder in (maybe Sane), but you just can’t guarantee who will play due to rotation. 
Your thoughts would be gratefully appreciated! Cheers. 

 
 

Balls!! Can’t seem to upload my screenshot....this is my team:

De Gea

Robertson Morrison Boly

Zaha Mane Richarlison Cairney Jota 

Sanchez Salah 

Cheers guys! 

Welcome @mish glad you're enjoying the site. Another great team with all caps covered. Have to admit I don't know much about Billy?

Pre-overhaul team...thoughts?[attach]43[/attach]

Welcome to the site @charnlec77. I have to say, that's not far off my current set up. Great team ?

Can’t decide wether to get a good defence or go heavy in midfield and attack. Which do you prefer?[attach]33,34[/attach]

First one for me. Not keen on 5 at the back though

Nice team @garyp. Very brave going without Salah.. Not a risk I'd personally take, but could pay off for you with Mane looking on pens

Hi guys would appreciate any feedback on this draft team? Aiming for no transfers before the overhaul. 

This team leaves me with 1.2m to spare. 

Cheers?

I consistently went 5atb and heavily invested in defence last year and it worked really well, so am doing the same. In terms of odd picks: Paterson plays LCM for cardiff but is a super cheap defender in Sky FF and Hudson-Odoi is one of the cheapest midfielders in the game, but has started almost all preseason matches (really impressed throughout). Interestingly, Sarri came out yesterday and said that Hudson-Odoi is a first-team player and will be also starting in the community shield. I am sure we all know that Sarri is a man of habit, basically not changing his Napoli XI at all last year. So, you would think that his community shield XI is likely to be his first team XI for the year (except hazard and Kante, although I think the former might be sold).

Excellent team @drthorne96. Only slight concenc is playing 5 at the back.

Interesting point on Hudson. On my watchlist ?

Target a very short term pick IMO and not nailed. 

Double pool defence could bite (but FWIW I like it!) and 

ive trimmed elsewhere to bring in Fabregas over Jorginho - I’m just not convinced he’ll be nailed from the start.

too many punts in here you feel? I must say I think it’s the most balanced squad I’ve produced thus far.

If Hudson-Odoi is the pre-Overhaul magic bean and Paterson the go-to cheap defender, how about something like this to get good attacking captaincies for the first 11 Matchdays? 

Sanchez v LEI

Zaha v FUL

Salah v WHU

Aubameyang v CHE

Sane v HUD or Sanchez v BTN

Salah v CRY

Salah v BTN

Zaha v WAT

Sanchez v TOT

Salah v LEI

Aubameyang v CAR

Not overly struck on Vestergaard, so any defender £7.5 or less could fill that slot.

Not sure if screenshot of team is showing, but it is as follows-

Alisson

Van aanholt, Robertson, Janmaat

Ozil, Mahrez, Mcdonald, Jorghino, Bissouma

Sanchez, Salah

First time doing Sky FF. I picked this team before I came across Fantasy Football Hub. After seeing other members' teams I'm a little concerned on Janmaat, McDonald and Bissouma.

Paterson seems popular. He's obviously cheap, but I can see Cardiff leaking goals.

Richarlison seems good value, but I'd still need to remove Ozil or Mahrez to being him in and I think I need at least 1 Man C and Arsenal player.

Any advice very welcome.

I like it. I know Patterson is an enabler but do you not worry that Cardiff will take a pasting most weeks?

I think you’ve got to reconsider Paterson to free up funds.

I’d go:

Janmaat > Paterson

Bissouma > Richarlson

I’d probably keep McDonalad as I don’t see a better midfielder at that price or downgrade Mahrez > Mendy, so you still have Man City coverage, and then you’d have enough for Jota if my calculations are correct.

I’d go Doherty > Coady and use the money saved to upgrade Duffy to someone like Coleman / Bertrand / Baines

Any changes or tips? Plan to swap Sanchez after United's GW2 game for Auba. Got the .5m in the bank. Schlupp as winger is exciting.

[attach]62[/attach]Hi guys,

Thought on this one please. I’m conscious I’ve got Liverpool players in each position but they’ve got strong opening fixtures. I’d like to squeeze in Zaha if I could but this would probably mean losing Mendy and I’m not sure it would be worth it.

Took advice on board from @mr_forest3 thank you and made a few changes.

Think I'm happy with the choices now. But all it takes is a last minute transfer or news of a World Cup player starting GW1 and I'll be reassessing again.[attach]63[/attach]

Hi Grilli, Good team there. Liverpool could well explode in the early games and your selection could  give you a hatfull of pts,but my only concern would be that Man City are going to score a lot of goals,and your team offers nothing in midfield or up front to take advantage of that certainty. So 2 for Liv and 2 for MC would be a better balance. Good luck anyway. Dave

Think Zaha likely to score more than Mendy tbh.

Captains double the points for that particular player, so it makes sense to chose the player that is most likely to gain the most points on that particular day. I'm relying on my expensive strikers for this, with the rest of the team constantly picking up points (with the hope of some surprising performances that may earn lots of points). As I currently have Salah, Sanchez and Aguero, I will be choosing Sanchez Friday, Saturday I'm fairly certain that I'll pick Jorginho (hopeful for a passing bonus), Sunday is a choice between Aguero and Salah. I'd be leaning more towards Aguero as he seems to be in scoring form and I think he might want to prove how Argentina made a mistake not playing him in World Cup. But Salah is playing against a weaker team.

Good luck!

Hi Folks,

I've tinkered and tinkered till I can't tinker any more,so here's my team to start the season.What do you think guys and galls?

Alisson,Mendy,Boly,Paterson,Gibson,Fellaini,Eriksen,Zaha,Deulofeu,Ageuro,

Salah. I shall be monitoring Man Us line up on Friday to see if Fell starts. Temted to play 3 Man C players with an addition in midfield,but will see how the 1st game goes. Is 3 Man C players too many? Dave (marilyn 60)

After the Arsenal game, Man City have a good run of games, 3 Man City players would be nice but the rotation risk is the issue, particularly as KDB might not start first few games. I’d love to have Aguero  but it would be just my luck for Jesus to lead the line. I’m tempted by B Silva following his form and Pep’s recent comments, for first 4 games at least...

PS - sounds like Fellaini won’t take part in the opening game from Mourinho’s press release after their last pre-season game.

Hey guys, my first post here.  Please be gentle! 

Going without Man Utd, so punting on Maddison for the first game of the season.  Thoughts please.

Me neither Marilyn, Man City just have too many player options and squad depth that the manager is likely to rotate the team, so is difficult to ensure you pick the players that will be picked...
