Genuinely hate this BGW for both manchester clubs - Got to have a slightly weak team for the first week to bench the likes of KDB and Bruno, book in first week transfers or hit a very early wildcard. Such a pain to plan around.

Will need to be quick because KDB, Bruno, Martial etc are going to rise in price very quickly.

I think i'm going to leave 1.5m ITB to change Son with Bruno as soon as possible after the deadline.

Consistency. Mane, Salah and Sterling were wide forwards who were listed as midfielders for years, they've now applied that to wide forwards at other clubs and strikers are just those who play predominantly through the centre. I'd have instead made Salah, Mane and Sterling forwards but either way

Not that I agree with it but I can see why they've done it that way around. It's probably because only get 3 slots for forwards and moving even more into the forwards slot would be a bit much for such a small slot selection.

Honestly I think they need to change the slots distribution. 2-5-5-3 is basically built off 4-4-2 with a bench player for every area that you can then work from, but the classic 4-4-2 is mostly dead as a formation nowadays

Yeah that definitely makes sense. FPL aren't known for doing things that make sense though so I can't see that happening anytime soon.

Back in the day you might have had wingers but more often now you see basically 3 forwards. Striker selection is pretty poor.

Yes, but you have forwards who play through the centre (Jiminez, Vardy, Aguero, Kane etc) and forwards who play from out wide cutting in (Mane, Salah, Sterling, Son). The latter group should be set consistently, either as forwards and acknowledging the way modern football is often played or as midfielders from the old ridged formations, but splitting them out as was just meant Salah and Mane would always be far more value than Auba because of the extra point per goal and clean sheets.

I think someone else made the good point that the set up seems to be geared on a 4-4-2 with an extra slot for each area of the pitch (to make 11 + 4).

Yea I think they need a re-think. Who still plays a 4-4-2 anymore?
