What’s on the pod?

The 3 of us talk about how we’ve got on in GW16 and our transfer and captain plans for GW17

Question time

Loads of questions this week.

What’s the better option for GW18?  Getting rid of Liverpool players or keep them by having good alternatives on the bench?

Should I wildcard in GW18 or GW20 or at some other point?

Is it time for 3 Spurs assets and if not which is better Alli or Son?

Does Rashford’s form make him essential?

Am I crazy to contemplate taking out Alexander Arnold to free up funds for the rest of my squad?

Are Martial and Ings feasible FPL assets given the fixture congestion and their injury history?

Rank Martial, Pulisic, David Silva and Maddison in order?

Should I start Jimenez or Kelly in GW17?

With so many options in the outfield positions this year, how long will you generally give a 1st team player that’s not returning?

Best goalkeeper of these 4:  Heaton Henderson Ryan and Guaita?

What to do with Mané and salah if you have both?

Can we now contemplate teams with no City assets when there are so many better form or better value alternatives?

Thanks again to Kev and Costas.  Hope you enjoy it
