With top 500 finishes in three of his last four seasons Mark McGettigan, aka FPL General, is a more than worthy interviewee for our Meet the Manager series.
Mark explains what it takes to make the leap from being a good Fantasy Premier League manager to one who is challenging for the top places in the competition.
As well as patience and an aversion to hits, he believes that bravery in the transfer market and avoiding the crowd are important lessons to a successful ascent up the rankings.
He also reveals why underlying statistics are only one part of his Fantasy management jigsaw, which is dominated by the good old-fashioned eye-test.
The FPL website’s own Watchlist tool is another vital weapon in Mark’s Fantasy management armoury. He discusses why this often overlooked function has been so important to helping him better organise his thoughts regarding transfers.
However, with a current rank just outside the top 400,000, he faces one of his toughest tasks yet in 2018/19.
As well as sharing his strategies for success he also analyses where it has gone wrong this season and how he plans to turn it around.
Tapping into Manchester City’s potent midfield and ending his reliance on mediocre captains look key as he aims to once again finish strongly.
The chat with Mark is available to view on Youtube here and in the embedded video below.
