A playful but realistic look (hopefully) ahead for those of you who play Fantasy Football, notably FantasyPremierLeague.com (currently just in top 100k). Would you consider any of our current team for your squad next season? One advantage they will be cheap, head over heart I have these candidates.

Ings/Vokes - Cheap 3rd Striker allowing you to splash out on your Suarez and Agueros and still have a balanced Midfield & Defence. 5.5m seems to be the starting price ceiling for promoted championship players so I'd put them both at that.

Trippier - A bench defender for a 3-4-3 squad, could provide defensive and attacking returns but you'd have to be lucky that he gets subbed in on a week they came up. Depending on fixtures could rotate well with another cheap defender for the occasional start. 4.5m starting price I'd guess.

Thoughts, will you load up with Clarets out of loyalty or keep a cool head a see what happens?

Just Tripps for me especially with assists and direct free kicks

Just outside top 10k and battling amongst others my old foe Irish Claret for the Clarets Mad title.

Yes showing off :)

I spent so much time last year planning team it was beyond geeky!

Reduced from obsessed to keen and was thinking of taking a year off but how could I when the Clarets could be there

18th at the mo IN TEH cm table. 91k overall.

Trips a decent option along with Heaton as 2nd keeper.

Saw a lot of mates go for JayRod his first season with Saints out of loyalty and get let down. But he's been amazing this season, so gutted for his injury :(

He'll have a bigger price when he gets back that's for sure - mopre like 7.5-8m I'd guess

Good shout Belialof

Nailed on 4.5m keeper, clean sheets we can only hope for but might be good for save points.

Bottom place Mannone still 3rd by points per game...

Not a fan of doubling up on defs from same team. Guess who they bring in will be key

Alexander was a real pick back in 09-10

I'd expect Tom to be 4.5 - 5m. Decent back up I'd imagine. I think Beast was one of the top keepers for a month or two! This defence 'should' be a bit better, so hopefully will gain a few more points

Just moved top of the clarets mad league tonight but sanemind is really top as ward will sub in for him. Should be an interesting last 3 gws. Surprised to be still in contention have found this season a struggle.
Anyway back on topic. Trippier will be my first signing next year he should be 4/4.5 and will be great value and will rise in value when the rest of the country realises how good he is.
