Discussion: Defenders & Goalkeepers

Discussion: Defenders & Goalkeepers

The Team

We are building a Fantasy Football team on Premier League.com for Premier Skills English and we need your help. We need your knowledge of the Premier League as we try to create a team that can rise to the top of the Fantasy Football League table. At the moment, we have three strikers and five midfielders in our team but by the start of the Premier League season we need a squad of 15 players.

This week, we want you to choose the five defenders and two goalkeepers that will complete our squad. The challenge is selecting the right players without spending too much money.

The Language

We want you to tell us who you think should be in the Premier Skills English Fantasy Football team. So leave a comment below and say who you think we should pick and why. To help you, we have put together some useful language about goalkeepers and some useful language about defenders. Have a look at the pages and then come back and share your ideas in the comments section. If you agree or disagree with another user, you can reply to them. If you disagree, please be polite. 

The Debate

We only have £30 million to spend on five defenders and two goalkeepers, so we need to be very careful with our money. We want to find players that cost £5 million or less. Take a look at the transfer list on the Fantasy Football website to help you make your decision.

Which goalkeepers should play in the Premier Skills English Fantasy Football team? What about Fabianski (£5M) at Swansea City?

We need five defenders. Who should we choose? What about Cedric Soares (£5M) at Southampton? He won Euro 2016 with Portugal!

Remember, in Fantasy Football, you need to think about the money we have in the bank, too. We only have £30M left. We need a bargain or two, some players that will cost less but will perform well!

Finally, if you want to join the Premier Skills Fantasy Football League, you need to register on the Premier League website, choose your team and enter the Premier Skills League using this Private league code: 155156-51385

Ufff with this little money is very difficult to buy seven players.. i found one option:
Goalkeeper: Pickford (SUN) plus Robinson (BUR) by $8 million
Defenders Jones (SUN),Pieters (STK), Yedlin(TOT) and Browning (EVE) by $22 million
The truth I don't know if this players play usually but with the available money is complicated do other thing.
Correct me

I don't know much about average or not famous player so I might not be able to suggest you any player.
I'm very excited to play FPL with premier skills and its representatives team competing with me. Can't wait.

CZec and schmeichel as keepers and Huth, Wilson, Fuchs, Simpson and Martesecker as defenders are my best bargain. I think although I can't verify that for five of them It can't be worthy the thirty millions pounds.

Some good options here. Cathcart scored lots of points for Watford last season and Stones would be an excellent buy, especially if he goes to Manchester City. We can't afford all of them, though, because we only have £30 million and we need to buy 2 goalkeepers! Can you see any good defenders in the £4 Million category?

What does everybody else think?

They are both great keepers but we might not have enough money to buy them! Who do you think might be a good idea to buy that's a bit cheaper?
