HG Sportswear shirt design knockout rounds now live

The knockout stages of Hope and Glory Sportwear’s shirt competition started this week.

We recently asked you to vote on your favourite designs in the group stages, which came to a conclusion last week.

We whittled 16 entries down to just eight with those votes and now we need you to have your say in the form of Twitter polls once more.

Here are the match-ups. Check if your entry made it through.

  • Legomaniac XI v Belz Boyz
  • Real So So Bad v Swanley Oaks FC
  • Mané Like Salah v Voet United
  • AFC Columbia v The Guerillas

The first of these match-ups has already begun on our Twitter account, and will run until lunch-time today.

Keep an eye out for the other three quarter-final matches coming soon.

When we reach the semi-finals, the last four shirts in the competition will be mocked up as graphic designs.

The lucky winner of the tournament will have theirs made for real.

      I’ll help bring back some normality.

      Should I colour in the scout;

      A. Green
      B. Blue
      C. Pink
      D. Red

      £0.5 to spend on felt tips.

        I think you could get away with spending £0.2m each on the blue and red crayons instead of the premium felt tips. Gives you more captain options, a nice rotation, flexibility for later colouring sheets and £0.1m in the bank!

          Enough for a chocolate fredo, a fine reward for a long day of staying inside, the lines.

      Calling all vFPL players, my season ticker is now live! There are two tickers - one that shows the fixtures according to a difficulty rating, and one that shows the fixtures according to teams' defensive performance (teams that have conceded more attacks recently will be rated easier).

      There's also a tab that shows the standout fixtures in the upcoming GW based on how one-sided the fixture is. These would be the fixtures where you would ideally look for captaincy.

      Huge thanks to TopMarx and Neale for the attack counter sheet where I sourced the raw attack data from.

      Check it out here (also a plug to my new twitter):

      Real fpl question.

      I only have 4.4m for my 5th defender. They will always be last on my bench I just want someone who will probably start. I still have a wildcard before I bench boost (assuming there are multiple gameweeks if football restarts) so not too worried about strength of bench but I want starting players in case games get called off.

      Currently looking at Williams united (4.2) but unsure he plays? Ny better suggestions?

      1. Pipermaru
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        23 days, 15 hours ago

        I would pick one of Lascelles/Webster/Cathcart/Diop.

        1. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          23 days, 15 hours ago

          Thanks piper. I’ve got Lascelles as 4th defender but will look into the other 3 now. Much appreciated

      2. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        23 days, 15 hours ago

        I think Lascelles is definitely the best option in that price bracket. I'd stay away from Williams, he is the 2nd choice left back.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          23 days, 15 hours ago

          Just saw that you already have Lascelles. Probably Ward or Cathcart are the best choices in that case.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            And Charlie Taylor

              +1.

          2. Gentle_Turks
            • 2 Years
            23 days, 14 hours ago

            Don’t forget Kiko. Cheaper.

          3. Jambot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            23 days, 12 hours ago

            Yes I’m looking at ward now. Good CS potential and the occasional cheeky return. Don’t suppose you know if he was he injured GW 14-22 or dropped?

      3. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        23 days, 15 hours ago

        Might be worth looking at Villa, although they’re awful defensively, they have an extra game (if we get the bumper GW38 with BB) and they have something to play for.

        1. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Mings is affordable those fixtures are so bad though it’s putting me off a bit

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years
            23 days, 12 hours ago

            Yeah someone above said Charlie Taylor, I forgot about him....even though he’s in my own team I think!
            He’s probably the best option.

            1. Jambot
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              23 days, 12 hours ago

              Nice, I don’t have Pope so if Burnley have a good fixture it does give me the option to cover that off as well.

              1. HamezMace
                • 5 Years
                23 days, 10 hours ago

                Exactly my reason for getting Taylor in the first place.
                Pope does tend to get an extra BPS when Burnley keep a clean sheet, but it’s a good compromise.

      4. FPLShaqiri

        I would personally stick to the most nailed on players due to possible fixture congestion, so Lascelles/Cathcart would be my picks. I have Cathcart/Lascelles/Holgate, although Holgate is slightly more rotation prone imo.

        1. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          All good shouts thanks Shaqiri

        Thanks for all the responses they were really helpful!

      Are we likely to get any information before 2pm Sunday? So far I have been doing somewhat of a slow wildcard, and am concentrating on a strong 15 (my last transfer will be to upgrade Button to a 4.5 bench boost keeper). If no further news what is the best course of action? (assuming there are more points to be gained)

      a) use 1 of 2 FTs, hoping for more GWs to be announced and my FT will be carried over.
      b) use 2 FTs if it improves my team, assume spare transfers won't be carried over if more GWs added.
      c) use whatever FTs and play bench boost, this would assume lots of matches in GW38.

      I also have wildcard and FH, but these will only be useful if we get extra GWs as I see it.

        23 days, 14 hours ago

        Definitely wait as long as possible for news .. .then if none forthcoming I would do b) and get 15 starters just in case.

        (I'm in exactly the same situation re FTs and Chips remaining....and Button )

        1. FPLShaqiri
          • 2 Years
          23 days, 13 hours ago

          Cheers! Will probably just use 1 FT incase the other carries over (no idea if true), as I don't really know what I'd do with 2! I am thinking Reina as my back up purely for pen saves and I liked him at Liverpool, plus that extra fixture!

            Plus he likes to go up for corners!

            Is Heaton not a danger to him starting?

            1. FPLShaqiri
              • 2 Years
              23 days, 12 hours ago

              Good point, forgot about him. I guess that makes it too risky to go Reina.

              1. GARY AND JAMIE
                • 6 Years
                23 days, 12 hours ago

                I'm in same boat and kept enough cash to get a 4.6 keeper for Button with my FT. McCarthy favourite I think.

            2. El Presidente
                23 days, 11 hours ago

                Heaton had a severe knee injury, I doubt he will be ready to play, especially in this context and especially with Reina

          I don’t think we’ll get any more information before the deadline. They won’t learn much they don’t know already. I think it’s a real let down they can’t say ‘if the football returns we will/won’t add extra gameweeks and spare transfers will/won’t carry over’ poor form from fpl but no surprises there. I’m assuming if the game continues there will be extra gameweeks and that the transfer will carry over.

        3. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          23 days, 12 hours ago

          And I wouldn’t use bench boost I don’t think even fpl are so amateur they would have a 92 game gameweek without informing us before the deadline. And if they do it’s such a farse it’s not worth caring about anyway.

          1. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            23 days, 12 hours ago

            They are capable of anything it seems. I'm ruling nothing out.
