  2. Dugout Discussion - Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur 11 hours, 34 mins ago

    2016-17, 4 matches survived. 2015-16, 5 matches survived. 2014-15, the FA Cup 6th round did not clash with a Premier League game-week. 2013-14, 5 matches survived. 2012-13, 6 matches survived. 2011-12, the FA Cup 6th round did not clash with a Premier League game-week. 2010-11, don't know how many survived, but I had to take an 8 point hit in order to field 11 players. So the average number of surviving matches in recent seasons when the 6th round clashes with a Premier League game-week is 5. » Read

    Transferred from Leyton Orient in 2016. Only 17 years old, second youngest Southampton player to play in Premier League (after Luke Shaw). Made his Premier League debut yesterday. » Read

    1. Just get the players you expect to score the most points in the next few game-weeks. Doesn't matter whether or not they're in the current template, but if they aren't and they do well then they might become part of a future one. This is nothing new. 2. There are always teams with good fixtures, but not all of their players will score lots of fantasy points (remember the hype about Southampton players such as Cedric at the start of the season, for example?). This is also nothing new. 3. Kun's hat-trick and Spurs' difficult fixtures certainly raise the question of whether we ought to play the hokey-cokey with Kun and Kane, or get both, or have we missed the boat? is it better to stick with what we've got, as it was perhaps better to have stuck with Salah recently rather than to use a couple of transfers or hits to first sell him and then buy him back? 4. One thing that we have learnt this game-week is that Lingard and Rooney may not be worth keeping. 5. But we still don't know… » Read

    So did world number six Jonathan Lee (but his vice-captain was Hazard). » Read

    Owning just any old top six defenders isn't enough - you need the best ones, the ones who get goals, assists and/or bonus points on top of their clean sheets and are nailed on (if you can afford them). In Chelsea's case, that means Alonso and/or Azpilicueta. Similarly, in Man City's case that means Otamendi. If you can't afford the top defenders, then the next best value is to be found outside these teams. » Read

    FPL match points have not yet been confirmed - they're still provisional. » Read

    Kane may not be quite fixture-proof, since he has only made one decent score in his 4 matches against the other top six sides (he missed the match against Man United). But he has got 128 points from his other 18 matches (7.1 points per match), which does make him a consistently high points scorer (only Salah and Sterling have more points to date), and he's also rotation-proof. He has had 8 double-digit hauls, which makes him explosive, and he can be expected to continue scoring highly and to get a brace about every 3 game-weeks on average - the only problem is that you cannot predict with any certainty in which matches he will score twice and in which he will blank. » Read

    3 of the last 4 were away matches, and he's much better at home. His scores in home matches: 6-13-15-5-9-2-12-13-9. Not much regression there! » Read

    Actually, the Telegraph report says that the injury is likely to rule him out, but it doesn't say he's definitely out. » Read

    The Telegraph reports that he's a doubt because of an ankle injury (see Tweets). It doesn't say he's out, and neither did Maxx's post. » Read

    It used to be the case that if you owned a lot of the Scout Picks then you were likely to have a bad week, and vice versa. They are less maverick and more dullard now, but is that a bad thing? Look at final Scout Picks selection if you want the majority view, but look at the five sets of candidates for the Scout Squad if you want some alternative suggestions. » Read

  15. Frisking the Fixtures - Gameweek 24 - The Strong 4 days, 11 hours ago

    Yes, I find it helps to recharge the batteries by taking a bit of a break during the off-season, giving the fantasy world cup a miss and spending time on non-fantasy-football things. » Read

    It was said of a certain 19th century chess player that he would play boring moves for 4 hours and then scintillate in the 5th; others also played boring moves, but forgot to scintillate. You can go a long way by playing safe, but to reach the top you need something extra. » Read

    If his transfers are a mixture of good and bad ones then you could copy the good ones and ignore the bad ones. But if they are all profitable ones and you are a week late in copying them then he will gradually gain on you. » Read
