Take our Fantasy Premier League 2012/13 quiz

Our weekly Fantasy Premier League quiz returns and we’ve been trawling through the history books in order to attack you with 20 questions on the 2012/13 campaign.

This was the season of Manchester United’s most-recent title win, with Sir Alex Ferguson stepping down from the hot seat at Old Trafford after 27 years at the helm.

Gareth Bale scooped about every award going in his final campaign as a Premier League player, while Queens Park Rangers, Reading and Wigan Athletic all dropped down to the Championship.

From a Fantasy perspective, this was also the year of Michu – the Spaniard racking up 21 attacking returns in his debut season in England.

As ever there’s a mix of questions on FPL returns and key events, which vary in difficulty.

To make life a little easier for those who have more important things to remember, the multi-choice format at least gives you a one in four chance of answering each brainteaser correctly.

    Hey guys. Any advice on what to do with Aubameyang is welcome

    Keep? Get Rashford and save the cash? Move for Agüero?

    Currently most tempted by the switch to Agüero, with Ota coming in for Simpson too

    Team is

    McCarthy Henderson
    Simpson Taylor TAA Fernandez Doherty
    Grealish Salah KdB Saka Bruno
    Aubs DCL Jota

    1. Jack Burton

      I went Rashford took a gamble on fitness, I got stung by Aguero earlier in the season so reluctant to go back there and UTD got top 4 to play for.

      1. Igzie08
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Same with Aguero, dreading that happening again. But could be such a differential

      2. Igzie08
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Plus city have those extra home fixtures too

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I will keep Auba but mainly because we know nothing about fitness and form for the time being.

        This is my concern about all players to be honest. Real lottery

        Strong bench is probably the unappealing necessity.

        1. fc_skrald
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I think I will still go with my normal very cheap bench players - I like to have the extra money to use on my 11 starting players. It is a gamble within the game.

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I am wondering the same re switching out Auba. Both Rash and Aguero are tempting, both tempting.

      Think I will prob go with Rash and use leftover funds to get another premium def.

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Didn't mean to say tempting twice, ha.

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      After much soul-searching did Auba to Rash. Hoping/guessing he will be as fit as anybody.

      What's wrong with aubameyang?

  2. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Potential last transfer of the season (I hope not this will be the last one of course):

    a. Lascelles -> Simpson to save 0.4 million for future transfers (like Grealish to Fernandes)
    b. just keep as it is

    McCarthy
    Doherty, Alonso, TAA, Aurier
    KDB, Salah, Grealish
    Auba, Ings, Jiménez

    Button, Lascelles, Hayden, Cantwell
    2 FT, 2.1 million in the bank (wildcard, bench boost and free hit chips)

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Lascelles is 4.3 and has 5 decent fixtures. I'm keeping him.

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Thanks. I can change Cantwell to a 4.2 midfielder and save 0.5 million instead - actually think this will be my transfer now 🙂

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I'm keeping him too.

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Auba to Rashford, allowing Hayden to Fernandes and switch to 3-4-3?

      I think having one of Rashford or Martial in addtion to Fernandes may be almost essential given United's run of fxitures.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I like this one.

      2. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yes that could very well be the right decision. I will get at least one ManU player that is for sure but I would like to get some team news before I make this change.This is why I will add money to the bank now and then use it for upgrades later.

  3. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Real game. Not been paying attention but guess I ought to.

    Still got WC, bb etc and 2ft. Want bruno.

    A - Sarr & Dendonker -> Bruno & 4.2 (guendouzi?)

    B - auba to kane/rashford/other to afford him

    C - jimmy to jota to afford him.

    Thanks

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I like A

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      If you still have BB, I'd prefer to have better players than the likes of Guendouzi and Dendoncker on the bench.

      I would downgrade Auba and go from there.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      B. Punt on Rash.

  4. DeadStar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Real FPL - Like many I actually have 2 free transfers available today. What’s people’s opinion regarding using both? Should 1 be kept in the hope of additional game weeks being added, and presume the other will roll over? As FPL haven’t actually said anything about this it’s a bit of a guess.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Me too. Just holding on for now, surely we have to hear something soon.

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I don’t think we will hear anymore before today’s deadline. I think I’m going to presume that if I hold a transfer it will ‘roll into GW39’, should that actually happen.

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I will only use one transfer now and then just hope the normal procedure will continue if more gameweeks are added. Would be great to have two free transfers when team news are available before gw39.

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Agreed cheers

    3. Pasqualinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Get rid of any true deadwood now but try and potentially keep 2 for if/when we get a restart, I’d say.

  5. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any cheeky plans for Calvert-Lewin as captain tonight in virtual fpl?

    1. BNMC
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I'm bringing him in, not sure about captain though

        1. fc_skrald
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          It will be him or Martial or Salah for me.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I am assuming that GW38 will just continue now until it restarts (if it does) and that the next games will be either announced for 38 or 39 so just sitting tight till then.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Oops. Response to Skald above.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        That's the whole problem with FPL's statement. It leaves us to just assume rather than telling us straight. They'd have been better just not saying anything.

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Im BB today in vFPL.
      Plan was to sell Pieters who didnt start last 2 games but as Targett got injured must sell him.
      Would you sell Pieters for -4 for other def up to 4.9 or keep him and hope he starts?
      Cheers!

      1. Johnny 8
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Keep. Might play given Burnley's poor defensive performance last night.

    4. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Yikes. Like many I kept up with transfers at the beginning of the pandemic for a few weeks and then stopped a few weeks ago. First time logging on here in awhile. Don’t really know if I have much interest in this season anymore now.

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Current team with 2ft and .3 itb.

        Pope, McCarthy
        Doherty, Maguire, Lascelles, Taylor, Gibson*
        Salah, Manè, Kdb, Bruno, Cantwell
        Jiminez, Ings, Jota

        Still have BB, FH and WC. Gibson needs to go for a BB player but no 4.2 def. downgrade Ings to DCL frees another .4?

        1. beric
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I'd downgrade maguire and upgrade gibson there

      2. beric
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Im just gunna sit tight, have no idea who will be best to bring in or sell without some press conferences and a fixture list, no one in my team definitely needs to go.

        1. Ole Trafford
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Yeah you are very lucky. Are you going to burn a ft? Unfortunately Gibson definitely has to go for me. Spurs have decent fixtures remaining and Tanganga was starting before all of this. 4.1 seems like it could be worth a punt. Not sure I want to sell Maguire with their remaining fixtures.

    5. beric
      • 8 Years

      How many points have people got in FBL so far?

      Virtual fpl:
      Annoyed about the Aurier injury. Think all my below replacements are rotation risks. However Holgate did start and scored a goal in one of my friendlies games...

      Aurier to:

      a. James
      b. Duffy
      c. Holgate

      Henderson
      TAA, Alonso, Aurier, Doherty
      Salah, KDB, Martial
      Jimenez, Ings, Calvert-Lewin

      Button, Hayden, Simpson, Amartey
      1 FT, 0.4 million in the bank

      1. BNMC
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Sheffield defender?

          1. fc_skrald
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Yeah but I already have Henderson. Guess I should also avoid James since I already have Alonso from Chelsea...

            1. BNMC
                1 month, 21 days ago

                If you want a new team, maybe Ward or even PVA

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  Ward has been very good to me. Usually only play him when Palace are at home. Good value compared to PVA, and allows you to (lbegib upgrading a midfielder.

                  Thanks. Then a decision between either Ward or Holgate, both 4.3 million. I need some luck with that 🙂

        • Rhinos

          DDG
          Laporte PVA Lindelof
          Mane(c) KDB Sane Martial
          Firmino DCL Ayew

          Button Jagielka Simpson Amartery

          0.0itb and found the perfect fh i reckon. Maybe Salah over Mane which would mean DDG to Guita but as I'm not ranked no.1 I'd rather gamble on Maneq

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I'm not sure I'd trust double United defense. Maybe for that reason Guiata, but Norwich do often score.

            Is Ings worth a punt over Firmino/Ayew?

            Why captain Mané with City's fixture?

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Missed PVA. A Chelsea defender could be better than him, if you get Guaita. Or just leave as is.

          So far all of the gameweeks have been finishing around the normal time.

          So I'd expect gameweek 38 to be calculated and bonus added around 6-7pm.

          Then we are truly at the "that might be it" stage of FPL being finished until next season starts.

          Although it's dangerous reading too much into vague statements, the FPL announcements about chips uses the word 'would' instead of 'will'.

          would remain available for you
          And
          will remain available for you

          Are two very different meanings if you take the sentences literally, with the former being conditional.

        • BNMC

            If I want Salah this week, I'm gonna have to get rid of one of KDB or Sane...

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Go without Salah this week. He blanked last week, the other two have a far better fixture.

              1. BNMC
                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  But I still feel like I'd want double Pool for this fixture and triple later. My plan was to get Salah this week and Robertson next (also own TAA), maybe I could just reverse that.

                    1 month, 21 days ago

                    I'm not convinced that City have a far better fixture, so I'm getting Salah in for KDB this GW and captaining him.

                    Newcastle so far this VFPL season

                    24 goals conceded, 4 CS

                    Spurs so far this VFPL season

                    28 goals conceded, 1 CS (and have no Lloris and are playing away at the virtual Anfield)

                    Spurs do have the advantage on attacking involvements conceded however 14 per GW, to 18 per GW.

                      Newcastle have also conceded far fewer goals at home in VFPL (7 in 9), than Spurs have away (18 in 8), which is also reflected in the real life PL, Newcastle 12 goals conceded in 14 games at home, Spurs 25 in 15 away.

              Apologies if this has already been said hundreds of times but I’ve not logged on FFS for a while. Big shout out to Ragaboly for creating and running virtual FPL during this time. I’m really enjoying it 🙂

                Yep, Ragabolly has done a fantastic job and all for free. To show my appreciation I've donated money using the donate button on the menu bar of his website. Something everyone can do who has been saved from FPL and lockdown boredom by Ragabolly's enormous effort,

              Is this vFPL team worth FH-ing this week?

              Pope
              Alonso / Robertson / Doherty
              Salah / KDB / Fernandes / Snodgrass
              Jiménez / Ings / Jota

              Button // Ward / Hayden / Targett*

              Pope vs. MUN
              Robertson/Salah vs. TOT
              Doherty/Jimenez/Jota vs. LEI

              KDB/Fernandes/Ings/Snoddy/Alonso have better fixtures, but by no means great (bar KDB).

                I think your team will get plenty of points so no need for a free hit. But of course I can't promise you anything 🙂

                  Yeah you're probably right. Will take the CS loss' on the chin. I've opted for Jimenez > DCL.

                  Jimmy over Jota mainly as I don't plan on captaining; tough Wolves fixtures; Jota is matching in the short term. Will lose out on Jimmy points here and there, but fair enough.

                  Allow for Snoddy/Doherty > Alli/Baldock next week.

              Hats off to Ze Germans.

              The way they have brought professional football back is pretty incredible when you look at the detail. It certainly offers a lot of hope to the premier league.

              Incidentally they have had a quarter of the covid deaths the UK has. Our incompetent government should hang its head in shame.

                It's all well and good until they all start coming down with Covid.

                  I'm sure they have protocol for that.

                  It's bound to happen this season and next ... until there is a vaccine.

                It's a nice promotion for Bundesliga. Some fans who will start watching now cause there isn't anything else to watch will stay I guess...

                This could also be a political hot potato for the government. If the Germans can do this why can't we?

              Got 2 FTs would make any of the following moves?

              McCarthy
              TAA Doherty Maguire
              Salah Mane KDB Bruno Grealish
              Jimenez Jota

              (Button Cathcart Holgate Nkietah)

              A) Grealish ➡️ Barnes/Sarr/6.7m
              B) Grealish & Nkietah ➡️ DCL & Guendouzi
              C) Jota ➡️ DCL
              D) McCarthy ➡️ 4.9m

              Thanks! 🙂

                McCarthy to Pope maybe. Why so keen to chuck Grealish with his extra game?

                  C, or A (Sarr).

                  Keeper transfer priority should probably be Button upgraded (but admit I did do your same move to Pope).

              Best goalkeeper to have long term? Thought I will replace McCarthy now transfers are free, but it's really hard to plan without any clue on when PL is resuming, how will the remaining fixture look like or in what form team will be...

                Leno. He has 10 games left, not nine.

              I’m in a similar position. Considering Pope to Henderson to seize on the extra fixture. Cheaper than bringing in Sheff Utd defender. What do you reckon?

                Henderson won't have an extra fixture though - will be illegible for the Man U game

                  Oops! Oh yeah. Maybe worth doing Taylor to Egan instead? Same price difference.

                    I'm just about to do that same move - Taylor & Soyuncu to Egan & Boly. Got Pope in for Ryan near start of lockdown and don't want double Burnley def really

                      Nice one, thanks. Yeah, I did the same move, Pope for Ryan, at the start of lockdown! So I didn’t want to transfer a transfer, don’t want double Burnley and Egan has the extra game, so makes sense. Thanks!

                        No worries. Feels like I've had Pope for ages! Maybe its because he was in my team at the start of the season

              VFPL .... I was 0.1 off Jimenez and Traore (and 1.8 ITB) to Sane (c) and DCL for a -4 on Friday night. I decided it wasn't worth it for a -8.

              Season defining stuff 🙁

                I did Rashford and Martial to Ings and Sane and captained Sane to help cover the hit. Worked out well with a 22 point swing. Considered DCL but wanted Ings going forward.

                I think last night was a season defining moment for many of us, I was around 60 points behind the leader at kick-off, I'm now 108 back after the leader smashed it with 105 including Sane as captain. It feels like a lost cause now.

              In real fpl (and assuming it will continue) I have 1 free transfer and 3.2 m in bank. Any ideas on transfers welcome? My inclination is to carry and have 2 moves plus plenty cash to respond to fixtures.

                I had 2FTs and 4.1ITB. I made one transfer for 0.4 and I think I’ll bank the other FT and the rest of the cash in the hope, which is now more of an expectation, that there will be a GW39.

                So I’d probably hold in your position.

              Assuming the league does carry on eventually... Is Traore worth keeping? (talk of extra subs etc) was looking to get rid before it all stopped, using my FT, people think he'll be more suited now?

                So I need to use my VFPL wildcard today, but not sure what I want to do...or need to do,

                McCarthy and Gunn
                Vvd Digne Webster (Stevens and 3.9)
                Pepe KdB zaha martial (Hayden)
                Auba Jiminez Abraham

                Players have good form and fixtures...obviously it lacks Liverpool mids but not sure I want to sacrifice Auba get bring one in (Pepe and KdB in good form too).

                Any advice? Should I just burn my WC!

                      U said should I just burn my WC. I don't get what u mean by this? Whether u use it or not its burned either way after today.
                      If you need to make more transfers this GW that exceed what you have without taking a points hit then the answer is yes.

                        Well if I use it today, it’s not ‘burned’.

                        So that’s my question really, should I use my WC, and if so what should I do?

                        Or should I leave the team as it is, and ‘burn’ my WC?

                          Do you have an online dictionary that shows how you reference burn? Just so I can learn this new application of 'burn'. Thanks

                            It’s pretty commonly used on this site.

                            People often refer to burning a transfer when they have 2FTs and decide against using either in a normal GW.

                  DCL has a good run.

                  Zaha has a good fixture for the next two, but not consistent.

                  Keeper could be improved. SOU haven't got the best defense. Although CSs are a lesser commodity anyway in this game.

                  You've already mentioned the Liverpool point.

                    Yeah I looked at DCL, but Abraham has a nice couple of games ahead, so would probably be more of a planned transfer than something to do now.

                    I would lose Zaha, but not sure who for, Perez and Grealish aren’t really firing.

                    It’s just a decision about Auba and Pepe, or Salah/Mane and then someone like Rashford....think I’d prefer the Arsenal pair given the fixtures and their form.

                  Six. Missed a GW here and there.

                  I'm tempted by Aubameyang > Rashford, but too much uncertainty.

                  Rumours the PL want Man United vs. Tottenham as the first fixture, which is a so-so fixture for him. (Although, Rashford has fared well against top opposition.)

                  Aubameyang may have a better fixture, but with any luck it'll probably end up as Manchester City or Liverpool :/

                    And this is exactly why I've done only 1 transfer, we have no clue what's going to happen. But to be fair I wildcarded in GW29 so I'm largely happy with my team anyway

                  Same I think. Fairly happy with my team as still have FH, BB an WC left.

                  8, haven't burnt one.

                  Figured I might as well take the chance to completely switch up my team and try something a bit different as this season has been so painful.

                  Rolling 1 FT into 39, if it happens.

                  8, although 2 were used on Jimenez to Jota (to cover a mega GW38 announcement) then back to Jimenez today.

                  None.
                  Honestly couldn’t even tell you half my team.

                    Ha! Fair enough. I'm a bit like that, I logged in before to see if there's anything I could do before the deadline but I just thought 'what's the point'

                      There’s too much uncertainty for me to be able to make any logical moves.
                      I’m sure I’ve got Trent and KdB...I also have Auba and Saka as I got them for the DGW that never was....I was happy enough with my team, so I’ll just wait for official news.

                Watching these Bundesliga games has convinced me beyond any doubt that without fans in the stadium football is pointless. I think I'd be advocating cancelling the season now if behind closed doors games is the only alternative.

                  Like it or not I think it's here for the foreseeable, so will be part of next season too whether or not the current one is curtailed.

                    I’m not sure, the government in the UK seems to want to move ‘getting back to normal’ as quickly as possible.
                    I could see limited capacity attendance next season, whenever next season is!

                  And what's your agenda? 😀

                    I'm a Liverpool fan.

                      Football's not the same without the atmosphere (I've cancelled my BT subscription after watching the end of the Wolves game and start of the United game in the EL before the lockdown), but if they cancelled the PL now Pool may be denied the title, and next season will still be played behind closed doors !

                        The title is ruined anyway as far as I'm concerned. Everything good about winning a title will have been removed.

                          I agree and really feel sorry for Liverpool fans. Clearly the best team this season, and very worthy champions. But you’re going to lift the title in an empty stadium, or maybe just collect a medal from FA HQ under cover of darkness to avoid crowds gathering.

                          Truly a football travesty.

                  It doesn't really make a difference other than the background sound. If you were watching football mainly for the atmosphere fair enough, but I don't think it is a major factor in deciding if/when leagues can restart.
