Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2gJamguN04

      The celebrity and the enigma! Not a bad two to get right 🙂 (and I swear you got more than those two right...) the HoF has definitely become more competitive, David Meechan dropping to 9th and his lowest rank in the past 5 years is only 3,179. Do you know how many managers feature in the HoF? (i want to make myself feel better about my abysmal rank!) » Read

    8. Team Of The Season - Tom Heaton 28 days, 11 hours ago

      I just checked out an old Football Italia, I don't remember James Richardson being that young! this vid includes Milan v Juve, with Conte playing for Juve, and Gazza looking like a nutter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdsYI5IF5QU » Read

    9. Team Of The Season - Tom Heaton 28 days, 11 hours ago

      yeah I love these kinds of players, I imagine George Best would have been similar, he was before my time though. Found another Paulo Futre highlights vid on YouTube, good soundtrack too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCLFomngpaA » Read

    10. Team Of The Season - Tom Heaton 28 days, 12 hours ago

      loved many players - Lineker, Waddle, Van Basten, Gazza but the guy who I really wanted to be was Paulo Futre - body swerve, pace, trickery, what talent such a shame about the injuries. That mazy run in the 87 european cup final against Bayern was brilliant. It's a shame the picture quality is so poor but I found a video from his time with Atletico Madrid which shows some glimpses of his skill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMtlZsICwZY and a trailer for film on him slightly better quality picture but you don't see as much https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDOmjq3Cnzc he's how I wanted to play football » Read

    11. Fantasy Football Book - Your Help Needed 29 days, 15 hours ago

      What a great idea! Do you have a link to the questionnaire?It's the combination of football knowledge, stats, psychology, and general competitiveness that lures me in. I don't like to bet so I'm glad FPL is not about money. I enjoy playing football and chess, FPL feels like a nice mix.I will try to think of stories. It's odd though I find a lot of those slightly sensationalist tweets from the official FPL account, about managers who've had good weeks or bad weeks, not that interesting because generally they are about people who you can tell don't play the game that well. So I hope you find a good collection from this site, they should have a bit more substance. » Read

      thank you MPP, yes it's all well and good looking at moves and comparing numbers but it's the thinking/emotion behind them that's really interesting. There wasn't a consistent pattern with each of you in the Top Five - differences in the amount of transfers, differences in who you transferred, often differences in captain picks - you all did your own thing, which I've found really reassuring. I'm not quite sure what point you are trying to make about the state of undergraduate courses in this country but I will take it as a compliment 😉 well done again, looking forward to that HoF update. » Read

      You're welcome Steve, I'm really pleased your season finished so well, I was willing you to climb the ranks!You did particularly well with your GW34 wildcard in a gameweek when others struggled, and making Benteke captain in about the only GW he actually did something.Anyway I will stop freaking you out by looking so closely at your team 😉Enjoy your summer 🙂 » Read

    15. End of Season Awards - Goalkeepers 29 days, 17 hours ago

      interesting research, my totals:TC: 9 (GW27) BB: 14 (GW37) AOA: 0 (GW20)With AOA Andy Carroll scored the lowest out of my front 8, only 1 point, and my highest scoring benched defender also scored a point. So I put in 0 points gained. However I tried to improve my AOA score by selling my bench fodder 3rd striker (Anichebe) for Rondon. Rondon scored 5 points that week, Anichebe 0. So looking at it that way I gained 5 points from AOA. It's a tricky chip, I don't really like it, I was then stuck with a mid-priced player on my bench so you could even argue it imbalanced my team. » Read

    17. Top 5 Career Hall of Fame - Gameweek 38 Review 29 days, 17 hours ago

      Hey TRM, glad you've enjoyed them 🙂so my numbers in the end are:Captain points: 623 Chips (BB+TC): 23 Base score: 2029Like you a decent captain score but my chips were pretty disappointing, though I'm not sure I would have done much differently. I think TC in GW38 is not a bad idea but surely better to use it on a DGW.I had a look at my team using http://www.visualfpl.com/#/team I chased points a bit early on in the season but seemed to make better decisions towards the end. My big regret was missing out on King's GW28 hat trick, I felt I should have got him at the time. Otherwise really pleased with the end of the season. Kompany scoring and keeping a CS on the last day helped.It's odd I had my best GW1 rank this year (94,870) and spent less time agonising over my team than ever before. Didn't overthink it. Hope to get that lucky again this year! » Read
