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.

    Ragabolly, LiveFPL thinks I've scored 57 on real FPL in GW38.
    It shows my squad for GW38 correctly, but each player's score is what they scored in GW1.

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Same. Ignore it atm, it's coming from official FPL towers, they somehow put the scores of GW1 as GW38. Don't know what's going on with them.

        Oh they made the active week GW1, like they restarted the game.. hmmm

          Thanks for your reply. I hope FPL Towers can sort it out.

        They're trying to nobble you - they're scared their staff of 50 can't do a job as well as you on your own and are trying to eliminate the threat. I'd be wary if opening any mail from an unknown sender.

          It only takes one programmer passionate about FPL on their team to make all the difference..

    In real FPL it looks like we are getting a free WC, just my take so dont shoot me.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Looks can be deceiving.

    2. Ógie

      I think if(and that's a big if) the league does somehow proceed that they will just give a free transfer for every gameweek you did not use one.

      This would give the casual manager a chance to be on a level playing field with those that implemented the "slow wildcard" and in my opinion would be probably the fairest way for all.

      FPL always make the game casual friendly which in only right because they make up the vast majority of managers and obsessive addicts like most here are only a small percentage.

      This is only pure guess work mind by me but no more than anyone else's guess.

      If this scenario does come to pass i would like to have copyright term"fast wildcard"to describe it. 😛

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        This is the fairest way, I'd like to see this

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          The fairest way would be for them to go back in time and actually tell us what the plans are.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year

            Yes

          It would be some slap in the face to all the smarty pants managers that thought they were getting one over on the casuals.

          When i was thinking about the different ways they could deal with a restart if it were ever to happen then this solution came to mind.

          I've not made a transfer since the last gameweek the PL was played partly because i really think it's over and partly because i always felt those that burned a transfer over the shutdown would be reimbursed in the interest of fairness in the unlikely event of a restart.

          I could be crazy but it's as good as any guess i've seen posted here over the last few weeks and i figured it was worth a roll of the dice.

          If all else fails i had an epic green arrow streak in the mean time. 😉

            I think to make it truly fair they would have to just reverse everything that anyone has done over these lockdown weeks.

            People who are all of a sudden given a whole load of frees would have an advantage over those that used them as normal over the last 2 months.

            1. Ógie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Is that even possible considering they let the head to head leagues go to virtual coin toss and let it run it's course.

              In retrospect the fairest way was probably just to pause the game but that horse has bolted.

              Slow wildcard managers would still get a few free transfers,just not as many would they not it this hypothetical scenario would they not?

              How many transfers did the slow wild carders get over the casuals anyway if they only had 1 FT when the shutdown happened EF?

              1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                I guess it's possible, just highly unlikely. It'd be a nightmare for them to do a reversal. Though I'm sure some boffin out there could do it.

                Without checking I don't know how many free transfers there have been between lockdown and now but I'm sure it's quite a few. It's definitely better to be given a bunch of free transfers to make when the fixtures come out than it would have been to blindly slow WC.

                1. Ógie
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Well the slow wildcarders could content themselves with all the money they made on the trades at least. 😉

                  1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years

                    😀 Everyone's a winner.

                    Didn't make money, lost money actually.

                    And with the slow wildcard, also lost about 250 places.

                    Hence whatever FPL Towers decides to do should also take that into account if/when balancing things out for casuals, that slow wildcarders lost a few places.

              You can’t tell people they have a transfer a week and then reverse them after they do it. Although I agree you can’t give people those tramsfers now with extra knowledge. They gave people a transfer a week people used them or they didn’t they aren’t going to reverse anything or give some people them now and not others that sued some before.

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        No way. You seen how flexible their code is? That limit is staying at 2 FT maximum.

        1. Ógie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Coding is outside my field of expertise so i can't say how flexible or not the game is but i am sure some of those smart guys at ISM could do something like this if they really wanted to.

          Some here are saying they might give an emergency wildcard so why not just give some FT's instead?

          Not that i have a clue or anything but it can't be that hard as in chance a few values and test it until it is stable and it's a go.

        Dreadful idea 🙂

        All this would do would offer a huge advantage to anyone who sat on their hands, giving them "current" info over those who chose to make changes in the knowledge everyone had the same opportunity to do so.

        A free WC for all would be infinitely more sensible, but still not as 'fair' as simply restarting the league with GW39 following GW38 and each player retaining any saved transfers and chips.

        If you've saved a WC, it's not unreasonable to expect to gain the full benefit of that over those who used theirs -- but I wouldn't be surprised by a GW1 style reset WC for GW39. If this was the case it would only be fair to see any "transfers made" ahead of GW30-38 wiped off the "total transfers" accumulator for deciding countbacks in the case of ties.

        As an idea it has its pros and cons, but to say you think this is what FPL will actually do is dreaming I'm afraid.

          This

    3. The Mandalorian
      • 7 Years

      I just changed 9 players in real FPL and hit the transfer button. No hits. A caption came up saying "as you're a crap manager we'll let you off".

    4. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I'd shoot you if you did say everyone was getting a free WC. I didn't keep my WC for nothing. 😀

        How much would you change your team if forced to WC?

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          People with WC could use it like a FH for GW38 if they were happy with their teams until then.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • 11 Years

            You can still now. You wouldn't lose it.

    5. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I’d be surprised. I think they will stick to the normal game structure as much as possible. I think a lot of people who have used their second wc will want this and enough people here will say it so that we start believing it (like mega BB38) but fpl have given no indication they’ll just hand free wildcards out. It would be controversial if they did as it’s not fair on players who haven’t played their 2nd wildcard earlier I don’t think fpl will actively cause controversy they seem to keep their heads down and let the game play out as closely originally plan as possible.

    Mane scores 2 in my simulation at home, Salah gets 2 assists

    1. The Mandalorian

      Pulisic and Abraham both score in simulation.

    Alonso is anyone looking to replace after next GW. If yes with who? I'm considering Gomez.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      If planned to go from Doherty > Baldock, although the Alli injury halted a planned transfer.

      Baldock had been great to me earlier in the season. If not a Liverpool defender, would recommend him.

  7. The Mandalorian
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    KDB has difficult fixtures after this GW. I'm thinking of bringing in Mane alongside Salah.
    Who are your KDB replacements.

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      KDB.

      Although he might get injured rofling at the prospect of difficult fixtures.

  8. GreennRed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    If they're gonna have some more GWs, rather than have one super GW for all remaining fixtures, and give everyone (inexplicably) a third wildcard, anyone who has their second wildcard should get double points for their second WC GW.

        Should be at least tripled.

    VFPL Mane + Salah boring but cant see anyone else with fixtures in that range.

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      There aren't, but reflected in their price.

    FPL just stole 2 transfers from me. I was banking those for the restart and now both are gone and season is over- so it says on the FPL website

    This is rubbish if the season starts again in a month.

    There must be very limited programming capabilities at FPL, they could not even pause the season

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      At most they stole 1.
      New programming needed if the game starts up.

    So have I lost the two transfers that I’d deliberately banked?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Only if FPL doesn't start up or give everyone a WC.

    Anyone else feeling a triple Pool in VFPL?
    I can't quite do Salah+Mane with my team structure but double defence is definitely on the cards.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Mane is obviously the right mid to have though?

  16. BNMC
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Across my 3 LIV friendlies (total points):

    Salah - 17 (2 Goals)
    Mane - 15 (1 Goal, 1 Assist)
    Trent - 25 (2 Goals)
    Robbo - 16 (2 Assists)

    Firmino only started 2 games and was sent off in one of them...

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      So who will you captain?

    2. The Mandalorian
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I got 2 goals from Mane and 2 assists from Salah

  17. BananaNose Maldonado
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    In VFPL, I wildcarded before GW19, took a few risks that didn’t pan out and resulted in a 56-point week, and dropped my OR from 44 to 56 (not catastrophic, but poor relative to the score of many other wildcarders).

    Chief among my punts was not only bringing in Rashford, but captaining him. So I decided to look more closely at the data to convince myself I wasn’t crazy for bringing him in:

    In the first ten gameweeks, he had 56 attack involvements, and returned 8 goals and 2 assists.

    In the last nine gameweeks, he’s had 76 attack involvements, but has returned just 3 goals and 0 assists.

    More acutely, in the last six gameweeks, he’s had 51 attack involvements with just a single goal to show for it.

    I mean, shame on me - I guess - for not just sticking with the hot hand, but if ever there were a candidate for Jonty’s goals imminent table, Rash is the one. This seems like a crazy statistical anomaly, so I think I’ll hold for at least another week.

    Does anybody else have Rashford? Is it just foolish to expect his conversion rate to return to some form of normalcy?

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      As it happens I've had him from the start and just ditched him on my WC (actually week before vs Liverpool). Decided to focus on the 'form' players as I was sticking fat with players and just middling along.

      Can't say my WC was a raging success but did bring my first green arrow in a while.

    2. The Mandalorian
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      My strategy has been to invest in good players and ditching players with bad fixtures like Salah which has paid off.
      Getting rid of Rasford for Auba and using Martial as cover has been a success.
      Also spending heavily in defence.
      I own the first 8 most highly owned players. If I ditch KDB for Mane that could really push me up the ranks if it pays off.
      It looks like it's going to be harder to get points now, fewer opportunities about.

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        My GW average is 74 points which is rediculous. Shame I started in GW 6.
