Pete Beswick is having a remarkable season, thanks largely to a maverick deployment of his second wildcard back in mid January.
After being in the top 1,000 the previous month he was on the verge of drifting out out of the top 5,000 at the start of the year.
Undaunted by the knowledge that many FPL managers would Wildcard later in the campaign, and driven by an ambition to finish as high as he could, he ploughed on with his alternative chip strategy.
It proved to be an incredible success taking him to around the top 100 mark.
An unwavering loyalty to players, who have handed him prolific points hauls over the years, has been a key factor.
Even as recently as this week such loyalty was rewarded when Paul Pogba, handed Pete attacking returns for the first time since Gameweek 28.
Pete also explains how a move away from his loyal approach cost him dearly in 2016/17 and how that poor campaign has taught him not to panic when a Gameweek goes array.
The chat with Pete is available to view on Youtube here and in the embedded video below.
During the summer break we plan to release podcast versions of all the previous Meet the Manager video interviews, which can be found here:
