    Project Restart

    Pros
    -Season gets finished like intended and everyone has played all their games.
    -Good for morale and a much needed pick-up for (most) the nation.
    -All CL, EL and relegation spots get decided without use of flawed PPG.
    -Contractual obligations for TV are filled.

    Cons
    -Integrity of league is lost, - one rule for start of season/ another for the end.
    -Much needed NHS resources taken from front line.
    -Players may refuse to play for fear of catching and spreading to own family
    -Squads could self isolate, and not have enough players to compete.
    -If one case emerges (like in Bundesliga this week) the whole operation shuts down for who knows how long.

    As much as I want to see football back, personally, I can't see behind closed doors working. At all!

      The integrity of the league is lost far more if it is cancelled than if they have to play at neutral venues. I heard something about UEFA setting a deadline for completion. I guess they'd be too scared of losing CL money to tell them to stuff their deadline. I'd wait as long as it takes to finish this season and adjust next season.

        I take your point for sure, and have similar views. Logistically though, behind closed doors is far too complex to ever get off the ground, for reasons mentioned above.

        Also, I think when people talk about integrity, the semantics get a bit blurred. When we talk about the Premier League's integrity, do we mean its fairness or its durability? One could be used to argue to finish the season, the other to cancel.

          Don't see why logistically it is too complex, it is easier than with crowds. There are 13 pitches at St George's park. I don't think the issue is logistics, it is taking resources from the NHS.

            It's easier than with crowds, for sure. And I'm not saying cancelling the season is without its complications.

            But as mentioned above, there are seemingly more variables at play by trying to restart (especially ones that can directly affect a players health) than by cancelling.

          No, supposed to be West Ham but don't care. BTW, Karen Brady should be ashamed of herself, trying to get the season scrapped because 'we' are rubbish.

            Intresting. You purely want it started for love of football and moral ? Not many who have no agenda for their reasoning so fair play.

            She is just looking after the intrests of the club really, people that high up and rich rarely have any morals. You don't get rich by having morals 🙂

              I think you’re being a bit unfair in assuming anyone thinking the best solution is to try and complete the season is because they support a team about to earn something. Some people do just have the opinion that completing the season, whenever that is, should be the goal. Let’s not forget we’re not just talking about the Premier league here. The reaction from some clubs and players in the lower league when that was voided was very negative.

              Personally I don’t think there’s any easy answer but I always come to the conclusion that completely voiding the season is actually the more unfair outcome. Gladly I think the Premier league and most clubs agree, which is why they haven’t done it yet.

                I have to stick by my feeling that MOST people do have an agenda. I do myself. I've seen people go rant on about how it should be stopped then i click on their Bio and see YNWA. Hard to take them seriously when they bang on about lifting moral and trying to speak on behalf of every fan. At least people should be true to themselves and come out with the real reason. Everyone entitled to it and there is no right or wrong way of how they want it to go.

                How many people on here want it started just solely on selfish FPL reasons ( which is fine). With out making an assumption , you are a west brom fan. In a situation where Villa could go down and west brom go up i would be interested to see how you would feel being a Villa fan . I just struggle to buy lifting moral reason , because if that is the case they are happy to risk lives to give themselves a boost ? Just as bad as me wanting it cancelled for my own footballing reasons

                  You’re absolutely right about most don’t want football to return soon - and that’s me included! You’ve got me totally wrong and banded me in with some others that have obviously annoyed you. That was my point - you’re assuming everyone who would like the season to conclude is simply because they support a team about to gain something. I haven’t put a timescale on anything and would hate football to rush back.

                  Let’s be clear, my feelings are:

                  - Football should return when safe to so. But my opinion is the fairest outcome would be to play out the season, even if it takes months, years etc. The alternative I’m coming round to is awarding honours on a ppg system, which is probably more realistic in the real world. I’m only coming round to this because it looks likely football can’t be played for months.

                  - If the season was only at the half way point I’d be in full support of voiding because at that stage nothing is close to certain. However the timing couldn’t be worse, the season was almost complete. So close in fact it’s pretty clear who the winners and losers would be to voiding.

                  - My opinion is purely in sporting interest. I’m more into FPL than I am real life football. I personally would find it incredibly unfair if Liverpool weren’t awarded the title (and trust me, I couldn’t care less about Liverpool) and teams close to achieving promotion were denied it. I also think the guy at the top of FPL should be awarded the prize this season 🙂

                  This is all in good spirit mate. I appreciate we clearly have different views. But this “pool fan?” response to everyone who doesn’t want the season voided is unfair.

                    I am asking a genuine question though. Are they a pool fan ? It's just a question as i am definitely seeing a pattern in real life and on twitter. They can answer or ignore it

                    They don't annoy me as i actually don't mind liverpool as i have said before. Personally i would love to annoy the UTD fans ( most of which want the season ended because they hate liverpool btw) . I don't like them playing the moral high ground , i hear it all time from them. What passionate pool fan doesn't want it to go on? Just admit the reasons though. It's fine.

                    Your reasoning is fine, no issues. I dont think cancelling next season to save this one is remotely realistic though regardless. Ill even say i have no issue with Pool being given the title. I don't think they should but no issue with it. The PPG is a disgusting idea personally. Hope that one gets put to bed. Sheff UTD are like .0001 behind UTD in ppg and 2 pts behind with a game in hand. If they won that game then they beat UTD in points and ppg. How is ppg now fair ?

                      You are insinuating that people only have their opinion because of the team they support. I’d like to think there’s plenty of us who can look at the current situation from a fair and sporting point of view.

                      I agree with your last point. To be honest the point I’ve been trying to make all along is that there is no fair outcome outside of if the season could just play out as it would have. Obviously this is not going to happen so for now it’s a question of which outcome is the least unfair. Like I’ve said, we were so close to the end I actually think awarding something (titles, promotions, relegations, euro spaces) based on this seasons performance is the fairer outcome. As I mentioned timing is also critical to me. If we had been much earlier in the season I don’t think there’s any issue in voiding.

                      In short, I’m certainly more in favour of what France have done compared to Holland.

                        There still is quarter of the season to go though. We are on the last stretch but not as if we are 2 or 3 games away from ending. There is no absolute fair way. You are right. I also think taking a vote on it is stupid. They should make a decision and stick with it. I am more towards cancel it all but have no answer to who should be in Europe so it is tough

                        Yeah I don’t like the vote as most are coming from a position of having nothing to lose if the season is voided. In fact some teams have a lot to gain from it. In hindsight, it is a little surprising the Premier league in all its years of operating haven’t planned for a season not concluding. They will now!

      I don’t think a lot of people realise all of the talk of any kind of football in the next 3 months + is being pushed by those who would lose out financially if the season was cancelled. It’s not based on reality

        Totally agree.

        You can reduce cancelling and restarting the season down to two things. Health and wealth.

        In a worse case scenario, one route could lead to the death of a person, the other could lead to the death of a business or football club.

        Despite being a seemingly obvious choice, we live in a world where lots of people are calling for the former.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It should absolutely be safe to do so when football returns but we do have to remember that football is a business and this is their jobs. Yes most of them are on much more ridiculous wages but they’re still just “trying to return to work”.

    3. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I agree with this post. I can’t see any football being played for the next 2-3 months. Despite their efforts it’s such a difficult thing to get back doing safely. Despite all the debate about how the season should be concluded what I am pleased to see on this site is that there is no one playing down the seriousness of the situation. Hope you’re all keeping safe 🙂

      It's a relatively easy decision for the other clubs to make, whose future in the Premier League next season is already guaranteed.

      Europe aside, their final placings will only make a few £million difference (nothing in Premier League terms).

      For the bottom six clubs, their entire future is at stake and home support could ultimately make the difference between maintaining Premier League status or scraping an existence in the Championship (or worse).

    Greenwood is just as annoying in vfpl as in real fpl - great programming! 🙂

      You’re really set up to play 4-4-2, so unless you downgrade a mid Greenwood is just bench fodder.

      Personally, I’d keep PVA, that foursome in defence is great.

    In a theoretical bumper GW38 with multiple fixtures who would you captain?

    Think I'd stick with someone like Salah but it would be such a lottery and could easily be someone like Van Dijk on basis of minutes played. Surely forwards and full backs will be heavily rotated if games come thick and fast.

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Salah or Mane are the default picks but just wondering whether there is any risk of Liverpool players being benched once the title is won. Maybe a CL chasing team's player is better? Bruno.

    The below text is from the FPL-homepage. It says that each fixture in gw 34-38 are postponed and no points for players in these gw. So I can only conclude that there will be NO monster gw38 from this. Am I right in this conclusion?

    GW34 Sat 18 Apr 11:30 BST
    GW35 Sat 25 Apr 11:30 BST
    GW36 Sat 2 May 14:00 BST
    GW37 Sat 9 May 14:00 BST
    GW38 Sun 17 May 14:00 BST

    Any activity FPL managers undertake ahead of each deadline will apply to that specific Gameweek.

    Given each fixture in these Gameweeks has been postponed, all players will earn zero points.

      You may get a bumper 38. Suppose it depends when it is and how long they have in between the end of this one and next season probably

        But "all players will earn zero points." - this is also valid for gw38.

          You would think they would be more clear and just say the season ends at this point. If it is the case then i guess that means all 38 weeks complete. Season complete , current standings apply. We all forget its a free game. They don't owe us a resolution

            I think the way it is written actually open up for extra gameweeks after gw38. This is my logic of course - I don't know what FPL have planned...

      What they say would suggest no big GW38 and even if there was you need to set your team and activate a chip on the 17th of May deadline. There’s a big part of me that thinks FPL will end after GW38, even if the Premier league return. FPL have given no indication they can adapt the site, add game weeks etc.

        I think if FPL has no intention/capability to continue after GW38 they would have already announced that the FPL season was over. My guess is that if the season restarts they will consolidate into four or five GWs which also rewards those who have held chips back for the business end of the season.....or is that wishful thinking?!

          Anything can happen. What would happen with H2H leagues though? They have set fixtures and they have already had those fixtures.

          I think it is likely more gameweeks will be added than the normal 38 gameweeks.

          copied from the FPL-page:

          It is the Premier League’s intention to reschedule the postponed fixtures only when it is safe to do so.

          Points scored in these fixtures will apply to the Gameweek in which the fixtures are played.

          We will make a further announcement on any fixtures scheduled for after 17 May, 2020.

            If there is a restart, playing at neutral venue with no fans could be a great leveller. Home fixtures vs away will mean nothing. So the template may well not be the way to go. Hypothetical for now but if I get the chance to wildcard my thinking will be heavily influenced by those clubs with most to play for especially where they have several fixtures against sides who will mentally be more interested in next season. So maybe the season tracker could rate fixtures based on the likely true motivation levels of the remaining opponents?

    Its GW37
    Hope for some serious article or/and Scoutcast about what should we do now. Plenty of us with WC and BB with 2FT too. If we get no info this week from FPL towers what strategy should we take as we cant use 2 chips in last(?) GW38. Should we WC this GW or maybe get just playing bench using our FT this and next GW and prepare for big GW38 with BB? If we wont use WC this GW and there will be no extra GWs than we will lose it and we wont get "perfect" 15 for BB in GW38.

      Total guesswork isn't it.

      You can use your remaining chips during these last couple of scheduled GWs and be all set for a massive GW 38 and then it turns out that they add in additional GWs and you've just wasted your chips.

      Or you can save your chips anticipating that they add in extra GWs and then it turns out it's just one massive GW38 and you're screwed over by the people that made the former plan.

      Other than that I'm not too sure what else the scouts could tell us that we don't already know.

          If they're not publishing it themselves, what makes you think they'd let us do it?

          Afraid we're just going to have to wait and see what's said. I'm confident they will make a sensible decision though.

            Yes but as pointed out, those with wildcards intact (not me) really need to know where they stand before GW37 deadline. Given that we now know there can be no games until GW38 surely FPL should be able to say what they intend to do.

              Aye but so far they haven't said anything, so until they do it's total guesswork. Hopefully they do say something relevant, but there's no guarantee.

              I'm sure there will be a Scout article if new info comes to light. And maybe even if there isn't I suppose.

              Yeah it's definitely not ideal, but I'm sure FPL are aware of the upcoming deadlines and what us addicts are worrying about.

              There's probably a plan in the works - I don't know why it wouldn't be made public let, likely a technical or legal reason - but I think we've just got to roll with it.

              I've pumped money into my XI because I'm confident they'll just add more Gameweeks, but it's a guessing game.

        This. People seem to think the scouts have direct access to FPL. This site is nothing to do with FPL and it would be scandalous if scouts got any more info than us. So much for integrity if so. Always suspected Mark had extra privileges and influence but can't be proven.

        Why folk need a scoutcast to make decisions for them anyway has always been beyond me.

      Given the popularity of FPL and large number of people who take the game seriously, I'm a little surprised at the lack of advice and guidance from those who are 'in the know' re the various ways in which the game could conclude. It's not my area of expertise and I'm sure there are many hidden complications I'm unaware of but I can't help thinking the finer details of the games mechanics/programming are surely known and it would therefore be possible to clarify the way FPL will play out should the league resume. It would help uphold the games integrity and support active managers with their plans.

        Not sure what you want even the best programmer in the world to tell you? They can tell you it can be done, which im sure it can. Doesn't make any difference to wether it wil be.

        Who are these " in the know " people you are referring to. Unless i have misunderstood i really don't know what you are expecting. FPL owes you or any of us nothing. It's free to play.

          Yeah I hear you Pumpkinhead, hard to convey a tone in a post sometimes but to clarify I'm not angry about it ! just surprised which I think it still allowed in this time of restrictions 🙂 I get it's free to play and we are owed nothing. I meant more from a business stand point that the quicker people know how FPL will play out IF the league resumes, the more 'clicks' and attention the game will maintain in the interim. By 'in the know' I certainly wasnt referring to FFS, i meant those who are involved in the decision making and future planning of the game itself. Anyway, hope you and your loved ones are well at this time, nice to come on here occasionally to try and keep FPL alive and kicking.

            You didn't come across as angry at all mate 🙂 . The thing i don't get is how the Sun Dream Team have already said there will be extra game weeks but i suppose their site is a lot smaller i suppose . It could be quite possible that they do have a plan but it is all time dependent. I guess we find out in a week or 2 anyway.

      I'm a WC and BB holder who has pretty much got to where I want to be with a slow WC. So I think the plan will be to keep both intact until about an hour before the GW38 deadline. Then if no news just play the bench boost. Might all be pointless but as a dedicated FPL player you tend to keep active...it's in the blood,,,

      I think FPL towers will have a strategy already but it suits them to keep it to themselves. They will be damned if they do or don't just like the rest of the football organisations.

      I've watched the first episode and found (in my opinion), contrary to your review, that situations were a little too contrived for my liking. Without spoiling things, you just felt that a certain protagonists luck would ride.

      Will see how episode 2 goes, but, like you, it does have stellar reviews and the main thing is you really enjoy it.

            Can you not look at the problem objectively though and put aside your personal biases? Making a season that is two-thirds of the way through null and void is ridiculous and undermines the PL's integrity.

                I said the FAIREST way to do it would be finish this season when it's safe to do so and not have cup competitions next year if it impinges on next season. This is unlikely though for a lot of reasons.

                If this season cannot be restarted in June it may not be possible to start next season in August. Until there is a vaccine found there is a high chance that next season will be curtailed when the second wave comes. We could end up with two curtailed seasons.

      Was the author Captain Obvious? This is why the PL need to make the decision and deal with the aftermath, as clubs will (rightly) only want, lobby for and vote for what is in their own club's best interest.

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Exactly this. I think the next lockdown review is Thursday, and PL meeting the following day.

        It would be good to get some closure on project restart (lockdown review is pivotal to this) and a contingency plan should project restart not complete.

        That way everyone knows where they stand. Getting clubs to vote will only ever be in their own best interests, PL need to take authority.

                Sound. Studied a bit part-time of it in early 2019, interesting but had little time to learn it well and had other control stuff to also digest. I was thinking the FPL and VFPL were kinda similar, given player/machine data, change some variable and observe how they work in different conditions.

          Probably. I couldn't bd ar$ed to run them though and make me even less decisive. Just look at the other stats which are plentiful now. Sure it's a virtual game, the real FPL is more redictable. I hit the WC last night, decided I should get a Pool attacker 🙂

    "Much needed NHS resources taken from front line."

    I have seen this a lot, so exactly WHAT are those precious resources being taken from the NHS exactly??? Are we talking about the tests? The ones giving out almost 60% of false positives, those ones? And btw, there are AT THE MOMENT the ability to do 100.000+ tests PER DAY and most of it is not being used (guess why???), so you are f telling me you can´t use a few hundred of them each gameweek??? That would put a strain on the NHS? Is this a joke?

    Pathetic. All of this is show off politics, with the objective of putting you under control. BIG F you!

    RESTART FOOTBALL
    RESTART THE ECONOMY
    RESTART LIFE

    1. GreennRed

      2 months, 6 days ago

      My wife is a carer in the HSE here in Ireland. 30 carers where she works tested positive. 4 residents died from COVID there and that would be far from the worst carehomes. Staff need to be tested and retested and tests are not free.They need a buffer of tests in the event where things get worse. If football, with supergit elite athletes, is put on hold for months and just one person is saved from COVID as a result it will be a good thing.

      A few of my siblings work for the HSE along with a few in-laws and many of my friends and i certainly do not want to see them put in any unnecessary danger as things are bad enough for them as it is.My kid brother has being tested once already,his missus twice and my sister in-law once all after coming into contact with infected people so my whole family is extremely worried about how it affect us.

      I can empathize with you about about wanting getting the economy and life restarted but football is well down the list of priority's for people right now.It does not sit well with me either the way our rights have been taken away and i am worried about some of the things i am seeing going on just as much as Covid but we have to be willing to make these sacrifices so as to protect the health of our loved ones.If their are questions to be answers then we can deal with them when the dust settles and the threat has passed.

        2 Spurs is a bit much but a nice fixture. Would like a good 2nd defender too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          not to keen on expensive defenders in this game, maybe lose TAA in a few games time. i think 7.8 for a defender with a terrible run of fixtures is 2 much.

      Depends on how you're doing. Forwards prob bringing points to reflect their price?
      Mane to De Bruyne today. Lamela to 4.5m mid and upgrade forwards GW by GW or hit early WC.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Mane is permacaptain. Would lose him otherwise.
        Forwards have dried up. Inside top 200 after 2 greens.

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Doing great, just thinking Salah's doing better than Mane who saves a lot of cash if you sell him to let you upgrade forwards. Greenwood to Ayew, Palace have decent fixtures after this GWm

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Agree than Salah is the better option currently. Main rule is Mane stays and is captain. Would be top 70 if it was permacaptain Salah instead.

            1. GreennRed
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Why think about top 70 now when you can be in the Top 1 after GW38 😉

              I still think having both of them in midfield is affecting the balance, particularly when they'll rarely haul in same GW but one of them and a Bruno, Son or De Bruyne could also haul plus you've cash to upgrade elsewhere.

              1. TorresMagic™
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Not playing seriously enough though. Taken more hits than anyone in top 500 and Mane permacaptain keeps it less serious.

      It looks a bit imbalanced to me and a bit light in the forward positions.

      I suppose trying to squeeze Salah and Mane into a team is going to make it suffer elsewhere.

      Wood has proved to be a bit of a dud of late and maybe even a rotation risk with Barnes although he does have 2 decent fixtures coming up.Ings and/or Muapay would be nice for the upcoming game but their fixtures go down hill after that.

      Who knows it might work out well for you the way it is,i ran a sim game last gw and Salah got 3 goals and Mane got 3 assists which would be a dream scenario for you TM. 😉

          VPL is tougher than FPL, in a good way, more unpredictable. And no waiting a week or two for transfers, suspension hearing, paternity leave. In these times of hearing the clock tick the virtual FPL ticks faster 🙂

      Yes- away to Liverpool. Pérez up top and Iheanacho on after 71 minutes for Tielemans. They lost 4-2. No goals or assists for Pérez. Ndidi and Pereira scored assisted by Barnes and Praet

    Pope
    TAA / Alonso / Targett
    Salah / KDB / Sarr / Lamela
    Rashford / Jimenez / Jota

    Button // Taylor / Hayden / Ward

    A) Save FT (Captain whom?)
    B) Rashford/KDB > Kane (C)/Pogba - then Aguero next GW?
    C) Rashford/KDB > Kane (C)/Alli- then Aguero next GW?
    D) Jota/Sarr > Shark/Alli

    Also, play Taylor over Sarr? Or not?

      I wouldn't do B, Bruno back soon, and when he was playing Pogba wasn't getting many minutes.

        Martial is the other option.
