Are matches against the ‘big six’ to be feared in FPL?

Everton sit near the bottom of our Season Ticker over the next seven Gameweeks, with the Toffees taking on all but one of the traditional ‘big six’ and Leicester City over the next two months.

Last week we wrote about how owners of Richarlison (£8.1m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) may be at a ‘form versus fixtures’ crossroads as we approach Gameweek 27, given the attacking returns those two players have been racking up since Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival.

The blobs of red, either on our Season Ticker or on Fantasy Premier League’s own Fixture Difficulty Rating scale, are off-putting to the eye but are Everton’s fixtures really that bad and are the ‘big six’ really to be feared?

We delve into our Members’ Area data to pose those questions in the article below.

We will also include Leicester in this study, given the difficulty rating applied to the Foxes on both FPL and our own site.

    Developments for fpl next season:

    1) Transfers roll on to a maximum of 3, instead of 2.

    2) Double Captain chip to replace Triple Captain (vice also scores double in given gameweek).

    1. KAPTAIN KANE

      Thoughts?

    2. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      What's the point of a maximum of 2 anyway? Why not just keep rolling indefinitely?

      1. Slouch87
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Can see the logic in this but it would favour those who got lucky with their initial GW picks .

        Or similar to Telegraph and you get say 38 transfers for the season up front and when they run out you take hits. not sure if I like it though!

        1. Greek Freak
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          I think I'd prefer that to the FPL way.

          I remember I was not a ble to do any transfer after the initial 30 run out, but it was a few years back

      3 transfer rolls just rewards people who are lucky. When you need to make transfers you are already at a disadvantage

      1. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        is that not the whole point of the game? picking players that score well..

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Yes but why should you get further rewarded with more free transfers after already being rewarded with points? No point widening the gap.

      2. Slouch87
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Why does it reward people who are lucky or is this just your general negativity again ?
        Viewed the other way it rewards people who select their players well.

        1. Greek Freak
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          You don't even have to score well to save a transfer. I'm ranked well below 500k yet there have been numerous occasions I saved (or even burned) a transfer.

          1. Slouch87
            • 4 Years

            You're in my gang then . ☺

          You literally said the same thing above... When I say "lucky" I mean people come out on the positive side of variance. If you happen to pick the players who do well at the start of the season you are lucky. You are already rewarded by their points and form. Further rewarding you by giving you more free transfers is unnecessary.

            How can you even disagree with me after posting

            https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/02/13/are-matches-against-the-big-six-to-be-feared-in-fpl/?hc_page=1&hc_sort_by=comment_date#hc_comment_21674947

            Your compulsive need to disagree with me is getting quite pathetic

    4. Don Van Vliet

      I like the sound of 2.

      Also feel the free hits should be changed. Two transfers max isn't that much of an advantage and your hand can often be forced to make a change prematurely, so as to facilitate later moves an avoid a hit.

      3 free transfers would enable more impactfull strategy (mini wildcard) but -- you could argue -- such a change would only suffer from the same drawback as the current setup.

      Not keen on unlimited rolling as it essentially means you can stockpile transfers during steady periods and only widens the gap between the haves and the have nots.

      I like 1). Having an optimal squad for 3 consecutive gameweeks should be rewarded more.

    6. Stejson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Perfect 11 chip. Plays your best 11 players in a valid formation instead of free hit.
      Price changes, once or twice a week, at specific times that are well publicised. Also, you are certain who moves in price before the change happens.
      Price loss on a player is treated in the same way price increases if you sell them

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        No - has a retrospective element about it. I'd be against any chip that allowed that.

    7. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I like the Champions League fantasy.

      I like the option to sub players and change captain on next match day.

    8. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Lovely suggestions Kaptain Kun I support them both.

      I would also like to have 2pts earnt for penalty won no matter if the goal is scored or the same man is taking it it will be great if your captain is the penalty scorer and he was fouled too.

      1. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        One chip Park the Bus when all 6 in defense get double pts

        1. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          All out attack to be altered and all 8 attackers to get double pts.

          Come ooooon FPL do your thing !!!!

          1. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            If you switch captain to vice because of your captain not playing nice gets half pts

              I hate to point out the obvious flaw...

              but half of double points is... well...

                Unfortunately most probably not.

      2. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        a chip that would give you an unlimited budget for one GW, and then revert back to your previous squad

    9. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I’d rather everyone got all three chips to use in the 1st half of the season and then all three chips to use in the second half of the season again, or we don’t have any chips at all.

      1. Slouch87
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        None at all but they won't do that as it's not good for them when marketing the game.

        1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Frustrating!

    10. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I think the use of chips really spice up the game and opens up a lot of strategic thinking. I would love for the game to have handfulof of more chips to use. There are so many things you could come up with....

    11. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      disagree on VC that is for backup to C, should only get one player who doubles up on points as that is the challenge to get it right!

    12. FanDoc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Like the second one. I think it would increase the value as well as the impact it could have in climbing the rankings.

      A change I'd like to see is to have the highest scoring bench player get subbed in rather than the bench priority system.
      Providing it doesn't create an illegal formation, that would remain the same.

      It should make having bench players that play more valuable and cause us to change how we distribute our funds.

      Thoughts?

      3 transfers seems okay I guess, but don't feel it would really improve things much.

      Double captain seems fine but not really sure it improves the game overall much.

      I'd still prefer to see all chips given twice - before Jan and after.

      So we can use some of them in single gameweeks instead of mostly waiting on double gameweeks. I know they don't HAVE to be used in a double but mostly that's what happens.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks all, some very interesting ideas. I do like the chips being refreshed in Jan, would bode well with the fact we have the WC refreshed in Jan too.

                        She does it for me but Emma was my favourite. I remember Jim McGrath saying on CH4 Racing once when she was walking down the Ascot walkway in a short skirt and followed by the camera man
                        "Emma has just made the male viewers very happy"

        Currently forecasting winds of 62mph for Southampton v Burnley & 63-64mph for Norwich v Liverpool.
        A little stronger than Ciara for Sheffield United v Bournemouth and a lot stronger than for Man City v West Ham.

          I think there's more in play than just wind speeds that determined calling off the Mcy game.
          One key factor I believe is the exposed staircase to the stands.

    What would you suggestI do here? Sort of clueless atm

    McCarthy
    TAA Gomez Lundstram*
    Salah (C) KDB Martial Traore
    Aguero Vardy DCL
    ____
    Dubravka; Aurier Hayden Reid

    2 FT 0.1 ITB

    A) Aguero + DCL -> Jimenez + Ings
    B) Lundstram -> Egan and roll FT
    C) Something else (what?)

    1. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would be tempted to hold DCL given his form.

      If you're looking to wash your hands with Lundstram, you could consider a Newcastle defender?

    What to do?

    A) Aguero/Martial to Jimmy/Mane for -4
    B) Only Aguero to Jimmy for free

  8. Slouch87

    7 months, 8 days ago

    That area of the country is so flat that flooding is a proper threat to transport Plus regular disruption on Norfolk/Suffolk rail links. East Anglican trains are bollox.

    Henderson
    TAA VVD Dunk
    Salah(c) KDB Grealish Traore
    Vardy Ings DCL

    McGovern Lundstram Soyuncu Dendoncker

    1 FT, 3.9 ITB

    Plan has always bee:

    DCL >> Jimenez

    (due to the fixture swing and Vardys getting good from GW28)

    If I use my FT on that, is anything else worth a -4 hit this week??

    And would you start Dunk (shu) or Lundstram (BHA)??

    1. jonnybhoy
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Would hold the transfer this week, reckon Everton will score and I'd start lundy

    2. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      No DCL to Jimi is good.
      No hit.

    3. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Lundstram to Doherty imo

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Actually don’t,
        Just saw dendonkey and you might want jimmy at some point

  10. THFC4LIFE

      This is the weather for Norwich on Saturday..
      The wind when the Liv v Norwich match kicks off is actually stronger than the City match which was called off 🙁

      Been out the loop and joe mentioned a few teams on the recent meet the manager podcast, what teams are guaranteed to play in 31?

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I think there's only 3 games confirmed that GW, but don't remember which they were.

        1. THE WERNER DELUSION
          • 5 Years

            • 3 Years

            If Burnley and wolves then Watford and Bournemouth play. Why prob Everton?

        I’m on an early wildcard so need to pay attention. Justifies Pope in and potentially a wolves triple up

    • Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Team good enough?

      McCarthy
      VVD TAA Lundstram
      Salah KDB Maddison Martial

      4. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Should I take a hit to improve my defence (Holgate or Lundy > Boly or Stephens) or roll with this in GW27 and hope Lundy does something or Williams starts for Utd?

        Guaita
        TAA / Webster / Lund

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          B or C

      6. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        The big 6? I don't see a big 6 when I look at the table. I see Liverpool and then the rest!

        1. Slouch87
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          I agree somewhat although City will surely strengthen .
          Big summer for Chelsea re transfer investment - there is potential.
          Man U & Arsenal a long way behind.
          Spurs probably best of thede but again signings needed.

        2. The Knights Template
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          And Sheffield

          1. Slouch87
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Not for me. They are where the are due to the failings of other clubs and an excellent manager - rather similar to when Dyche got Burnley into the Europa League. They will find their natural level next session in my opinion ( I live in Sheffield ) unless they get more creativity.

      7. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        What would you suggest with 2 free transfers here? 🙂

        McCarthy
        TAA • Lunds • Aurier
        KDB • Salah • Grealish • Mahrez • Traoré
        Kun • Vardy
        (McGov. Rico. Soy. Greenwood)

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Anything itb? Initial thought is move off triple Man City to prep for the blank. Mahrez down and greenwood to Ings

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            0itb. Yeah same idea I think. Need to decide whether to keep Kun or Mahrez or drop both. Some ideas include;

            A. Kun+Greenwood >> Jimenez+Ings
            B. Kun+Mahrez >> Jimenez+Mané
            C. Kun+Greenwood+Aurier >> Jimenez+Ings+VVD (-4)
            D. Kun+Greenwood+Mahrez >> Jimenez+Ings+Son (-4)
            E. Greenwood+Mahrez >> Jimenez+5.1m MID (switch to 3-4-3)

            2. AD2110
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              B or D I reckon

        2. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Kun to Jimenez and Greenwood to Ings maybe. Or Grealish to Son if possible after 1st move

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Yeah mate, see my options I put together. A is what you said. D gets Son in a similar move too

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              I like D too. Get VVD ASAP though imo

      8. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Suggestions please? Dbeck you already helped me out, but not sure I want a NEW defender...yet

        2ft 0.1itb
        Pope Button
        Soy Lund VVD TAA Dunk

        1. Stejson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Vardy to Ings, upgrade keeper

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks. But I won't consider losing Vardy

        2. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Tricky. Not a lot I’d change. DCL > Ings by downgrading Lund or Grealish?

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Exactly my initial thoughts. But DCL just keeps giving. And the best underlying stats of all forwards I think I read the other day. Tough, might burn a ft or just get Lascelles for Lundstram

        3. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          How about vardy to Ings and Lund/dunk to Doherty

          I’d still do something passive I think like Lund or dunk out to new/Soton/shu defender and roll your other

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Ignore just saw the not loosing vardy comment

          2. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Yeah I think I'll just reluctantly change Lundstram. Cheers as always

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              Can you get Lund to Boly or you 0.1 short?

              1. My heart goes Salalalalah
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 8 days ago

                .1 short. Might get Fernandez after all

      9. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Should I take a hit to improve my defence or roll with this in GW27 and hope Lundy does something or Williams starts for Utd?

        Probably looking to ship Holgate or Williams for Boly/Stephens at some point

        Guaita
        TAA / Webster / Lund
        Salah / Grealish / Mane / Traore
        Vardy / Jimi / Ings

        Button / Williams / Cantwell / Holgate

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          No hit

        I assume this is the longest gameweek in the history of FPL for obvious reasons?

          And it's been crap.... the long drawn out nature of it.

            • 4 Years

            Yep. Needs to be 2 blank game weeks next season.

            • 4 Years

            I prefer an earlier disappointment.

              I’ve had plenty of girlfriends who have experienced this.

                Stylish backhanded compliment.

            I must be a sadist and masochist because I'm absolutely loving it and still think there's loads more pain to come.

            Bloody Marvellous! 😆

                      I'm with him every day, but I could never answer that question with clarity, unless he was answering that question himself.

                      Talk to you on the other side. Cheers! 🙂

        These moves seem sensible after this gameweek? Both for a -4. Which would you go for?

        A) Aguero + Grealish —> DCL/Wood + Mane
        B) Grealish + Lund —> Perez/Barnes + Boly

        Rest of team below:

        Ryan, (Button)
        TAA, Lascelles, Baldock, (Lund, Holgate)
        KDB, Salah, Son, Grealish, (Dend)
        Aguero, Ings, Jiminez

          I’d actually save, a hit feels excessive

          1. AD2110
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            A lot of blank players for 28 though?

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              so wait til next week to take the hit

                • 3 Years

                Hence why I said after this gameweek...

                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  If this is for gw 28 then I like Aguero and Lund to VVD and DCL/Wood

          1. davies
            • 6 Years

            Need him to drop 0.1 to afford him

          Depends on if he blanks vs Wolves.

          1. davies
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            And if he doesn’t?

            Can’t imagine people will buy before MCI

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Idk about buying but people will definitely not sell....

        3. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          If he blanks again vs Wolves, for sure.

          1. Fantasy Gold
            • 6 Years

            Man City could potentially play a weakened side against Leicester with only 3 days between games.

            Vardy haul on the cards I reckon.

            1. Tinkermania
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 8 days ago

              Or even weakened side against West Ham. Or even weakened side in both.

              1. Salarrivederci
                • 4 Years
                7 months, 8 days ago

                Possibly somewhat weakened in both yes, but I think most in here forget, that those players will need some gametime and some positive results on the field to be able to win against City.

                You can't go 24 days from losing 0-2 against Spurs, having a winter break, and then playing Real Madrid.
                Many of the offensive players starting against Real Madrid in 2 weeks will play around 150 minutes combined vs. West Ham and Leicester if you ask me (90 against WH and 60 against Leicester). Most of the defending players will probably play all 180.

                1. Fantasy Gold
                  • 6 Years
                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  I’d say it’s more likely it’ll be full strength against West Ham then a slightly weakened team against Leicester.

                  Just my guess but who really knows with the bald fraud.

                2. Salarrivederci
                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  But yes. Ofc there will be rotation and rests for some, but Pep will not start 18-20 different players against West Ham and City.

                  1. Tinkermania
                    • 1 Year
                    7 months, 8 days ago

                    5 changes to next game will mean 16 different starters. Easily.

                3. Tinkermania
                  • 1 Year
                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  I am going with 30minutes against Leicester for KDB, Kun and Mahrez on average and 60+ against Leicester.

                  1. Salarrivederci
                    • 4 Years
                    7 months, 8 days ago

                    Ye but you don't want your star injury-prone Belgian player to be 'just' lukewarm against Madrid.

                    1. Tinkermania
                      • 1 Year
                      7 months, 8 days ago

                      Yes, that's why i am expecting 30mins and 60mins in that order

            2. El Presidente
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Its quite possible, but if he blanks vs Wolves on Friday he will definitely drop to 9.7, the trend is already there and with another blank...

      14. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Come on chaps, wildcard changes to my current draft :

        McCarthy
        Taa VVD Doherty Egan
        Salah Kevin Son
        Ings DCL Jimmy

        Pope Barnes Lascelles Hayden 0.3itb

      15. RoysCallerAnne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Only 12 people in the top 10k own Salah, Mane and Firmino. Now that's proper upside chasiness swordsmanship.

        There is a major fault on here. If -1 votes are posted the site should reveal the identity of the poster who has done that. Just allows completely anonymous spineless down voting with no accountability Utterly stupid concept.

        1. Fantasy Gold
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          It’s called double standards.

          Come on mods and site owners answer this. It really is entering very dangerous territory and very juvenile on behalf of yourselves.
          Up votes fine but down votes require substance and accountability. If this is the way the site is going you can all eff off.

            Ah spotted it.

            Looking on our system and it genuinely says that nobody has downvoted it, so really confused what's happened.

            So are you saying that mods can down vote a comment with no explanation ?

              They have the ability to, yes, but are told not to use it (and don't as far as I'm aware).

              It's there to prevent people manipulating the voting system or something like that.

              1. Slouch87

                OK. I suggest that it's removed for the sake of clarity.

                  Yeah suspect it will be at some point, bit of a legacy thing I suppose

                    Maybe sooner rather than later ? It could easily lose newly paid up members which can't be good for the endless striving for profit at all costs.

                      I've mentioned it already, but nowt more I can do.

                      I know what you're trying to get at with the pointed comment, but I promise you there's literally nothing I value above the community. I guess you're not worried about what I think though!

                        That's your implication and not the case. I admit that I do have issues with some aspects of the community as such but surely as a mod you must have some influence ? Otherwise it totally denegrates that role.

                          I do, which is why everything I'm involved with I try to improve the community with. Doesn't always work, but I give it my best shot.

                            Good man. There always is the ultimate dilemma though. Site owners quite rightly want profit ( and contrary to others I would never criticise Mark for this and indeed I urged him to sell ) but in order to retain those profits people such as yourself who give up a lot of time should be rewarded accordingly. I don't think that this is the case and as a business model this is where ultimately it will fall down. Just my opinion but I wouldn't give up shite loads of personal time for f all to fill someone else's boots.

          I thought downvotes have been removed? Or have I been banned from down voting..

          1. Slouch87
            • 4 Years

            You have , mods haven't.

              I don't see the benefit of anyone let alone mods having the option to downvote. It only incites a negative reaction from the poster. If a post breaches the rules, it can be deleted. No need for posts to become a popularity contest, it feels very Facebook-like.

                I totally agree Berbs unless the down vote has accountability by being directly associated to the down voter. I hope that past disagreements are buried as I respect your comments.

                Think this is being made into a much bigger thing than it is.

                There are some scenarios where it would be useful for mods to use it - for example if someone goes on an upvote spree to basically spam. They can be "reset" by being downvoted to counter balance it.

                But ultimately Mr Rotation is right - if it's ever used it's almost always an accident. Usually there's a scramble to get another mod to upvote it because it wasn't done on purpose.

                It's been available for years and hasn't caused any issues up until this point really, so it's not doing any harm.

                1. Berbs

                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  Up vote spamming results in or at least used to result into a sin bin of up voting for X amount of time - I think that's more appropriate as it eradicates accidental down votes from mods. We live in a social frenzy world where numbers are everything, so I'm sure you understand why posters get rubbed up the wrong way for having a -1 next to a fairly normal comment.

                    I can understand it, but it's almost always rectified pretty quickly. It's not like this is a constant issue, right?

                2. Slouch87

                  So why have it if as you say "if it's ever used it's almost always an accident" .

                    "or example if someone goes on an upvote spree to basically spam. They can be "reset" by being downvoted to counter balance it."

                      7 months, 8 days ago

                      So how many precisely percentage wise go on "an up vote spree" ? And actually who gives a toss anyway ?

                      1. andy85wsm

                        As you can imagine, I wouldn't have specific numbers.

                        But I'd guess very low, about the same as when you see a -1, not very often at all.

                          7 months, 8 days ago

                          So I ask again why have it ?

                            No need to go round in circles on this - you can see my comment above.

                            Feels like a mountain out of a molehill this one.

                            That's not going round in circles it's a logical question in response to a logical reply , the implication from which is that it isn't necessary.

                  I upvote everyone who takes the time to respond and comment on my votes. It's to acknowledge and show appreciation for them doing this, a bit like liking something on Facebook or favouriting something on Twitter. To call it spam is disingenuous.

                      I wrote a well received community article this week. I upvoted everyone who took the time to read it and post a comment. I upvoted them because I was grateful. Mods shouldn't have the power to take that away.

                      Change the algorithm that pushes upvoted posts up the page. Don't penalise people who are showing gratitude to people who take the time to comment on your FPL thoughts.
