The importance of showing patience as an FPL manager

Oh, Fantasy Football, what do you do to us?

There are some weeks when you just have to laugh. I’ve escaped a tricky Gameweek 23 with a decent-ish score (£48m) and a green arrow but others haven’t been so lucky.

I have my own tales of woe, but that’s nothing compared to some of the stories that I’ve seen banded around the community over the last few days.

Having done the Scoutcast for a couple of years now, and being in charge of grabbing the “Roughs with the Smooths”, I’ve seen my fair share of “Roughs”.

But this Gameweek has made me wince.

The people that have traded their faltering Wolves players for soaring Saints, such as Raul Jiménez (£7.5m) for Danny Ings (£6.9m) you have my sympathy.

For anyone that (like me) that left Adama Traore (£5.7m) on the bench, I feel for you.

For anyone that, probably against their better judgement, removed long-standing goalkeepers, such as Paulo Gazziniga (£4.6m) or Nick Pope (£4.6m), and replaced with Double Gameweek ‘star’ Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m) or budget ‘hero’ Alex McCarthy (£4.4m), you have my condolences.

For anyone that took punts on Richarlison (£8.1m), Ryiad Mahrez (£8.5m) or Djibril Sidibé (£5.4m)… you did not deserve the fate that the cruel, cruel FPL gods had in store for you.

This game can be a nightmare. We talked last year about the impact it can have on mental health, as more and more people’s enjoyment of a weekend is intrinsically linked to their FPL score. But know that you are not alone. Everyone has bad weeks. Everyone suffers when seemingly good decisions go against them. Everyone has weeks that make them want to close FPL forever and get a new hobby. But don’t. Go outside. Take a breath. Consider why you removed Jiménez for Ings (Jiménez’s fixtures do turn really bad! Ings had scored 80 points in the last 12 Gameweeks!).

To me, “Black Box Thinking” has never been about beating yourself up over making these kind of decisions, the ones where hindsight tells us it was a mistake, but general strategy tells us it was the best move.

I’m not that annoyed I benched Traore, or that I sold Pope, because I really did think it was the right thing to do with the tools at my disposal.

However, what I’m learning more and more this season, is that when it comes to 50/50 calls, when you just don’t feel that certain, the best move may be to show patience.

My last 12 Gameweeks have been the best I can remember, with just one red arrow in this period. I was trigger happy in the first 11 weeks, and when faced with a decision (to transfer, or not to transfer) I would do it.

But actually, the players we have in our teams are those that we have backed for whatever reason, and unless there is really clear evidence that they are now no longer the player we originally signed – perhaps ditching them isn’t the best move.

I’ve shown more faith in players that I’ve selected, allowed them to have a few weeks to perform, and been rewarded. 50/50 decisions for me lately have tended to go in my favour, as I have elected to do nothing, rather than make wholesale changes (often involving hits that do not pay off).

The main reason I’m not going for Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) – see my last article for the ins and out of this – is because it would tear my team apart, particularly my midfield which currently consists of Jack Grealish (£6.5m), Sadio Mané (£12.4m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), Anthony Martial (£7.9m) and/or Traore.

These players have been fundamental to my rise up the rankings, and the thought of binning these players off to chase a haul from one player fills me with dread.

The fact that I’m not that confident that Salah really will outscore these midfielders by such a considerable margin tells me that I shouldn’t be following the crowd.

Instead, it looks like I will be turning my attentions to a certain Robert Firmino (£9.4m) – who had a goal very cruelly ruled out against Manchester United on Sunday.

I said I wanted to see something to tempt me towards the Brazilian, and he’s been good the last few weeks, with a goal against Spurs and an unfortunate VAR call last week.

Firmino’s away form has been quite appealing as well heading into two matches outside of Anfield. In the last four away matches, for example, he has four goals compared to Salah’s one and Mane’s two – and 16 goal attempts compared to 14 for both the Liverpool midfielders.

For more detailed information on Firmino, read THIS MEMBERS ARTICLE.

Looking further ahead, I’m wondering what other players may come into our considerations. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) is going to be back in a few weeks, after the dust has settled from the Double Gameweek. The golden boot chaser could easily be a major factor for those chasing the pack.

Similarly, a certain Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) has now hit consecutive double-digit hauls but remains a player who is being overlooked in favour of Liverpool’s star assets right now.

More budget-friendly options, such as Leandro Trossard (£5.8m), Lucas Digne (£5.7m) and Ismaïla Sarr (£5.6m) (injury depending) are also looking like options that can help you soar up the table. The key, it seems, is picking them for the right reasons, and sticking with them through uncertain times.

FPL can be the ultimate test of patience. But what I am increasingly learning is the importance of honing your ability to filter out poor Gameweeks, assess what happened and react – or crucially, not react – accordingly.

        I hate it! Bring back all out attack!

        1. kamdaraji
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          all out attack is a good one

      2. Test Eagles
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Unless they score 3 goals, 2 assists and 6 baps like Salah will this week!

      3. fusen

        27 days, 20 hours ago

        It's not, it's just disproportionately hyped.

        Say for Salah and Mane their points per 90 minutes is something like 6~ each, so realistically, you're looking at say 12 points over the double gameweek.

        normal captain (12*2 = 24)
        triple captain( 12*3 = 36)

        A 12 point increase for your captain is not exactly something to write home about. It's may turn an okay week into a decent week but unless other things really go your way, it isn't going to turn an okay week into an amazing week.

        Like a lot of FPL things, you need luck to go your way and to have say a 20 normal point return (40, 60 points) as then that does turn an okay week into a great week. Even then, you still need the weeks after the TC to go well to not fall back down the ranks again.

        It's not even triple captain, it's captain and a half

          Nice

      5. Bobby_Baggio

        Depends we'll see after this GW

      6. HarryB29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        Really is unfair. Mane and Salah are a coinflip and choosing the wrong one could see you lose or gain 50 points

        1. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 19 hours ago

          Firmino to scoop up all the points - I'd quite like 1-x in both matches

        2. Lignja
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 19 hours ago

          Thats why you need both in team so you dont lose all if you pick wrong

    5. eamonhegg
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 20 hours ago

      OR 6K.

      Rashford and Maddison > Ings & Son

      Y or N

      1. JoeSoap
        • 6 Years

        Looks good. Could be a good week for Son.

        1. eamonhegg
          • 2 Years

          Yeah Son lovess a hall. Playing up top too

      2. kamdaraji

        come back with your final rank at the end of the season. cheers

      3. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        Those transfers better for teams around 3K rank

        1. eamonhegg
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          Agreed!

    6. Flynny

      Hi...at what point do you throw in the towel and just play on impulse?

      I've tanked to 700k. Miles behind in mini leagues. Got rid of jiminez and Pope last week.

      All the things I have done for years and have helped me get some great rankings have failed this season.

      Triple captaining salah and if they doesn't work debating wildcarding to a team of differentials. Thanks

      1. The_Bucc
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        completely up to you, even at that point I would simply just try to get the most amount of points every week - I wouldn't throw in the towel

      2. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        Stick to your principles. It’s really tough and I’m in a similar boat, but you did well in previous seasons for a reason. Chin up.

      3. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        Never throw in the towel! It is just a game, after all.

        You can definitely make a come back from 700k! Start getting those differentials in

      4. Jarvish Scott Talent

        Play your own game and stop listening to plebs on here.

        Im doing it this gameweek onwards.

        Pretty much in the same position as you and im sick of making the template moves.
        KDB & Vardy are probably my next 2 transfers out.

        1. Flynny
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          Yeah. I'm keen on vardy out. Just not sure who to.......

          1. kamdaraji
            • 10 Years
            27 days, 20 hours ago

            vardy >> rashford

        2. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 19 hours ago

          I've already done Vardy+KDB > Firmino+Salah 🙂

      6. fusen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        If you're going to do this I'd recommend trying something I've wanted to test for a long time.

        Wildcard the #1 in the world's team. As much as possible obviously with the available cash you have, then see how well you do over the next 3-4 weeks. The top 10 in the world have had the most luck out of any one, so basically try and ride their luck a little bit. The hardest bit if captaincy as that is majorly why they are in the top 10 and captaincy is a whole lot of luck, but see if you can guess at who they are likely to pick and see if that works as well.

        1. The_Bucc
          • 1 Year
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          this is interesting

        2. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years

          😀

        3. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 19 hours ago

          What did #1 in the world deserve to have that done to them ... they'll be out of the top 1000 within a week or two

      7. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        600K to 190K in two weeks mainly because Aguero C here. A few punts can easily do the trick. Spurs playing Norwich and Villa next 3 could work.

        1. Flynny
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          Cheers. Ive already tried the spurs differentials

          Captained son and he got sent off...kane was underwhelming...maybe I'll look at kdb to son for those games. But would like to see some spurs form!

        Tough. I’m alternating between A&B - it doesn’t feel like Leicester can keep a clean sheet right now

      2. Bobby_Baggio
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        A but I wouldn't be confident in getting anything more then 2 points

        1. Cruz88
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 20 hours ago

          Think this is why I'm on Lund currently. If none are keeping a cleany then might as well go for the attacker, and City defense is hardly solid

      Only 2 of the top 8 in my mini league own Salah, he's a crazy good differential this week, rest own double defence and Mane. This is part the reason ive gone Mane, Salah and TAA, and the main reason im going Salah TC.

            Mane vs Salah for the TC this week, looking forward to captains pick video and some of the FFS content tonight on this one.

            I have Salah, TAA and Mane and only decision now is the C/TC options.

                I think this is the gw where Mané vs Salah argument on who is better gets clarified

                Likewise Trent vs Robbo & VVD vs Alisson

                Can't wait tbh

                    Choosing b/w def! Seems quite easy coz all loves cs!

                    But b/w mane nd salah its the ratrace of TC 🙂

                      😆 Can't wait to experience all the OMG, Lol @, Benched etc... posts here but most importantly experience the 1st two.

                      Imo Mané will outscore Salah but I will let the games decide, don't want to start another argument with them chaps

                          Then take your time and decide at the season-end! Lol! 🙂 ...

                          Mane had 2 chances and created 2 chances 🙂 that's why i m keen on him

                    They are both world class player and on their day, either one of them can haul.
                    I don't think there is a right or wrong way to turn. Pick one, and hope he outscores the other but don't stress too much about it 🙂

                    Questions:

                    A) Williams or Tanganga more likely to start?

                    B) Likelihood of Aguero being rested v Shef United?

                    C) Likelihood of Matip replacing Gomez in upcoming weeks.

                    D) ARE WE TRIPLE CAPTAINING SALAH/MANE?!!

                    I don't believe this is the correct gameweek to be triple captaining players. Wolves away is a tough fixture and even West ham have proved harder to beat under Moyes. I think Liverpool will get at least 4 points from the two games but I don't think either game will be a hammering.

                      Liverpool are the best team in the world. There will be other times to use it but there won’t be a time that will be more effective imo cause of fixtures.

                        There's not one player I want to replace Rashford with.

                            Rash is out for at least 5 - 6 weeks from reports mate.

                            You going to have him on your bench for that long?

                          Who are people looking at as Rashford replacements? Most of the strikers who've been performing well so far seem to be coming into tough fixture runs. I've already got three Liverpool and Ings and Vardy are my other strikers.

                            Salah, nice form and less owners than Mane. Another thing, we are unsure of the future double week fixtures, maybe we won't get a good team with DGW. Remember BHA last year?

                              The early season DGW always seems a big letdown - BHA last year, that Spurs one with Kane having the flu (The year before?)

                          It's Scout Champion time and another quick turnaround.

                          Think you have the eye to pick the differentials and form a winning team vs the Scout Picks? We need a Community Champion to represent us vs the Scout Picks for Gameweek 24.

                          The Community Champion picks a team including a captain to go up against the Scout Picks, within a budget of 85m and in a playable FPL formation. Whichever Gameweek champion beats the Scout’s team by the largest margin will win a £100 Amazon Voucher!

                          If you're interested in applying, email Geoff (geoff@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk) with your FFS username and FPL Team ID.

                          The Champion will be picked by the end of today (Monday), so make sure to enter by then! The Champion then has until 11am Tuesday morning to send in their team.

                          Good luck!

                          The point on mental health shouldn’t even have to be mentioned. It’s FPL, it’s a game that does nothing for you, in the end of May/June/July your FPL team will be the last thing on your mind. If you do well, enjoy it, if you’re not doing well, think of the moments you enjoyed it. If you hate it and it affects you, don’t play.
