    Sorry Jarvish! » Read

    Yeah, I agree, it's not very well presented. Again, we're okay but, for the masses, it's not very clear. » Read

    That damn goal. Ironically I'd like to say that, had the Premier League not introduced Match Centre - effectively a fast track dubious goals panel - then we'd never have such incidents.However, it was Opta that gave it to McAuley so it would have been the case regardless.At least, with Match Centre folk can be re-assured that it got a thorough assessment.Done with posting on this, though. Posted lots of times last night. Hopefully we might see the angles used to arrive at the decision at some point. » Read

    Yes, watching Sanchez yesterday was a horrible experience. I don't care if Siggy goes mad, I'm loathed to ignore Sanchez again. » Read

    No, I had to crack on this morning with the party looming. » Read

    Flags have never been used to indicate missing fixtures. » Read

    That's not how I meant it - anyway, I'm wrong, it's four - Stan plays (or not) on Monday. » Read

    We now have a confirmed female viewer.This is going to have a marked affect on how we turn out from this point on. » Read

    Moving Jonty's original post...Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topicLast week 75,000 FPL managers got rid of Alexis Sanchez before a home game before Hull.This weekend 28,000 FPL managers have drafted in Gabbiadini who doesn’t play next Gameweek.These are two of the oddest statistics I’ve seen in Fantasy Football.Most I’ve asked who have made such moves say it is to catch price rises and falls. Does this mean that the transfer system is officially broken when player prices, not whether a player has a good fixture, form or is even playing, govern the market?And what effect does that have on our teams, where player prices are shooting up and down based on such sillybillyness.Or should we just welcome the fact that so many Fantasy managers are willing to give us an instant advantage, even if they are affecting our team’s selling and buying powers? » Read

    Morning all. Spare a thought for me today. As mentioned in my preamble, I'm booked at my son's party all day so having to snatch score flashes on my phone.I've only got five players and Siggy captain to distract me. » Read

    One of the top 100 captained him. » Read

    See below...why do you think a Fantasy Game decides who does and doesn't score a goal?The Premier League have an official data handler - Opta - and their own independent body to assess any contentious decisions - Match Centre - formerly the dubious goals panel.Both those bodies adjudged it to be McAuley when assessing all angles available. Angles that we and the BBC don't have access to.FPL had absolutely no involvement in the process, either the original award or the later confirmation. » Read

    It's nothing to do with FPL. They don't decide goalscorers. » Read

  14. The Knee Jerk - Gameweek 25 8 days, 4 hours ago

    They didn't have or show the angles that were used to make the call. Believe me, it went under painstaking scrutiny - Evans headed into McAuley. Opta gave it, Match Centre examined it and verified it. » Read

  15. Dugout Discussion - Liverpool vs Spurs 8 days, 10 hours ago

    They are dubious goals which now happens on matchday rather than days later. » Read

  16. Dugout Discussion - Liverpool vs Spurs 8 days, 10 hours ago

    That's not how it works with any deflected goal. Also, it's even possible that Evan's effort is not on target before it deflects off McAuley. » Read

    Match Centre are waiting on further angles for review. » Read

  18. Dugout Discussion - Liverpool vs Spurs 8 days, 10 hours ago

    Jeez...I'll say again, FPL have zero influence on goal decisions.Why do folk believe that a Fantasy Football game decide goalscorers?Data handlers (Opta) and PL Match Centre will make the decision. FPL are waiting on it. » Read

    Because it's the last touch. » Read

    Match Centre don't even know anything about ownership.FPL are completely divorced from this.Why do folk believe that FPL award goals? When was that ever the case? » Read
