What’s on the Pod?
We discuss our teams performance in GW3 and discuss our potential transfers, lineup issues and captain choices for GW4
We then answer questions from the FFGeek Slack Channel
We also give our view on the most transferred in players in each position so far in the gameweek
How do you think Man Utd will line up with CR7 and how does that impact your teams? Is Greenwood a safe starter? Should we be replacing Bruno if so with CR7 or someone else?
Who are the most promising midfielders at 8.0m or less?
Is Shaw still a must-own after an average start?
Ronaldo at 12.5m, is he really worth it? Fernandes or Ronaldo? Or both? (will they bring enough points to justify weakening other areas?)
Apologies, I am new. Is the podcast posted tomorrow evening too? Where will I be able to listen?
How do you think West Ham’s deadline day signings will impact on minutes for the popular Benrahma?
Who out of Greenwood, Pogba and Bruno will be losing more points to Ronaldo and in what order? And which of them, if any, would you keep/buy to double up with CR7.
Should we have two, three or four premium (10m+) mids and forwards?
If Firmino out for extended period is it worth -4 to remove Tsimikas and get Jota as third Liverpool player?
Who is the best option for a Chelsea Def?
Anyone considering Wolwes defenders or Mids with the great rum they have and great stats so far against better teams
Cheap enablers livramento / Williams and Duffy look good but will they hold their place and is Tanganga worth a punt or will Emerson Royal take over?
Thoughts on the pod on demari gray of Everton – a 5.6m midfield enabler who seems to be nailed and is currently 9th highest mid for points… Any reason to be concerned e.g. underlying stats, and history?
Sergio Torija, are there any La Liga players that came to the prem in the transfer window that we might consider this season?
(Additional La Liga questions for Sergio if there is extra time):
Why do you think Real Madrid were offering 200M for Mbappe if they are potentially getting him for free in a few months?
How happy are you regarding that Atletico have bossed Barcelona around Griezmann and recent financial dealings. As a Real fan is it a good thing that it has hurt Barca or a bad thing that it has made Atletico much stronger, in recent years?
Is Ronaldo the best player of all time to you, or is it Messi/Pele/Maradona ?
Ronaldo aside, are any of the last batch of transfers before the transfer window closed worth a look for FPL?
Moving forward, what looks like the best formation?
Which of these next 10 fixtures do you think Ronaldo will he the captain favourite in?
