Meet the Manager – Hall of Fame number two reveals his Gameweek 31 wildcard plans

In Fantasy Football Scout’s Meet the Manager series, Joe chats to a Fantasy Premier League manager with a stellar track record of success.

This time he is joined by Tom Stephenson, who has shown a remarkable level of consistency over his 13 campaigns. Make sure you watch the latest instalment below.

Across his career he has four top 5,000 finishes and is in a strong position to gain his fifth this time around.

Meanwhile, he has one further finish in the top 10,000 and has not ended a season outside the top 40,000 in his last dozen campaigns.

This incredible run has propelled him to second in our Live Hall of Fame list of some the best ever FPL managers.

Among the stand-out moments in their chat is when Tom not only shares his plans for the remainder of the season, but also gives a sneak preview of the first draft of his Gameweek 31 Wildcard.

Can this strategic deployment of the game’s most valuable chip ensure Tom finishes the season strongly once again?

Elsewhere, Tom reveals his top tips for a strong finish and why patience is very much a virtue.

The last year has seen the world, including FPL, turned upside down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Tom chats about he has managed to maintain strong Gameweek scores amid the postponements, surprise announcements and player quarantines.

    I think this has to be the most enjoyable chat I've ever had about FPL with Mark on FPL BlackBox tonight.

    You can see why he's the Godfather of FPL. Some of the insights he has, and the research he puts in, are just on another level.

    You can watch / listen here if you're interested!

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year

      It was a very informative show and I would like to thank you and Mark for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

    2. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Great watch. Watched live and I’m with you Az on the debate about EO. Blackbox is my favourite FPL content. Thanks to you and Mark for making it so awesome every week.

    3. Dirty Harry
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      I love when you (Az) are just in awe of the information Mark dishes out. Such a great thing to see because that's how I feel when Mark mic drops.

    4. HODGE
      • 7 Years

      Great show tonight as always.
      The data was another level, the double digit hauls conceded very insightful

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Thanks for the stream. Very fun and informative chat. I was feeling a bit down about FPL since last week and this has reinvigorated me a bit to focus on the run-in and try to make it as good as possible.

    6. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Shall check it out

    7. The Units

    8. Sumant Natkar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I think you guys are fantastic as a duo, because Az always gives straight answers, and Mark is Mark.

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

        Best pod for Fantasy football. Listen to it every week. Great stuff guys.

        Az, you should consider doing a spreadsheet for the remainder of the season!!!

        1. Az
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years

          now don't start! 😀

    9. fclackless [Brazil Nuts]
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Some good stuff in there tbf but you don't half waffle on and repeat yourself over and over again.

      Make the point and move on to something else for god's sake !

      Then I'll listen more regularly 😉

      1. Ruth_NZ
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        Maybe having you listen regularly isn't the object? :rofl:

  3. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Alonso transferred in and captain this week based on gut instinct. Could end badly!

    1. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      People said the same about Trossard last week and in hindsight that was a genius move.

  4. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Just checked the records for goals conceded and XGC in last 6 home matches. It may be that Liverpool's fixture run is being slightly overhyped 🙂

    GW35 for me I think if I go there.

  5. Knock Down Your Aerial
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Any injury update on Son?

    1. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      No updates but he must have been close for the last game but Spurs didn’t want him to get involved so South Korea wouldn’t call him up for their meaningless friendly.

      Got to think he will be ready for the next match.

  6. Patio Kev
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    So Martial potentially out with a knee injury.

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/12025/12259611/anthony-martial-manchester-united-forward-limps-off-on-france-duty-with-suspected-knee-injury

    Can’t expect Cavani and Rashford to play every game with the continued Europa League involvement.

    So could this make £7.0m Mason Greenwood a decent option especially if he plays up front ?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      0 interest. There are so many options in midfield that are better.

    2. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Cavani could be the one

  7. Feed tha Sheep
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Who do you bench this week? (Can only bench one def)

    Shaw Cresswell Dallas Stones
    Son Salah Raphina Lingard Gund
    Kane Bamford DCL

    1. Feed tha Sheep
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Should said bench two of these*

    2. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Tough one. Def Stones and maybe Gundo.

    3. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      I’d bench the West Ham players out of those as Wolves have been decent at home recently (only 2 goals conceded in last 4 home matches).

      You may well still need them anyway from your bench as lots of Internationals still be played so injuries / rotation possible.

  8. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Thoughts on transfer plans? 1 FT. £1.6m ITB.

    Martinez
    Dias - Reguillon- Cresswell
    Bruno - Gundo - Raphinha - Salah - Son
    Kane - Antonio

    Subs: Fabri, Maja, White, Burn.

    Current thinking is Burn to Rudiger. Could get in Azpi, who I prefer as an asset, but think the £1.2m ITB will give me a lot more flexibility over season end.

    1. Baron Saturday
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      The Rudiger transfer is a deffo. And I agree re the little stash of cash in the bank to give flexibility. Actually a really good looking team.

  9. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Evening y'all. Been an average season so far and I'm about 70 points behind the ML leader. Worth playing bench boost for GW30 or anything worth a -4/-8? I'm keen to double / triple Chelsea defence before end of season but not sure it's worth a hit this week.

    Martinez

    Rudiger, Maguire, Dallas

    Fernandes, Raphinha, Gundogan, Odegaard

    Kane, DCL, Watkins

    Subs: Pope, Stones, Cancelo, Soucek

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Def not worth taking a hit this week as you’ve got enough benching headaches already. Fixtures aren’t the best for single week bench boost but I guess it’s whether you think this is the best opportunity until season end.

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        Thanks for the feedback.

  10. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Which one with you pick?

    Auba > ???

    A. Jota

    B. Salah.

    Cheers

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Same dilemma for me

      When in doubt get the penalty taker or?

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        I’m Pool fan but torn as Jota funding form and Mo hasn’t scored in 5 PL games. Leaning to Jota slightly.

    2. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Maybe wait a week?

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        This move would be just before deadline this GW.

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

          Yea just thinking it's arse v pool and who knows with these two teams right now?

          Might just save it and play Auba, but then again I am shifting him too.

          Mount in for me and Jota maybe next week.

          I am done with Mo for this year. Maybe forever.

  11. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Which three Chelsea players to bring in?

    Thinking

    Mendy
    Rudiger
    Mount

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      That’s the 3 I’d pick.

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

        Cheers

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      First 2 are all but nailed for me, i'll probably overlook mount solely due to worries about rotation and value in other mids, could bring in another defender or just go with 2 Chelsea, not sure yet

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Azpi is the defender to be on unless budget is critical

      Something to be said for Mount but Chelsea attack is really rather meh as at now.

  12. tc93
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    2FT- early transfer thoughts with this lot?

    1) KDB + Martinez —> Bruno + Mendy
    2) KDB —> Bruno
    3) KDB + Dias —> Bruno + Azpi
    4) other, recommendations?

    Martinez
    Shaw / Dias / Rudiger
    Salah / KDB / Son / Raphinha
    Kane / Watkins / Bamford

    Areloa / Gundo / Dunk / Dawson.

  13. Ragabolly

    Fallers: Bryan (4.5)

    1. jesus jesus

      1. Ragabolly
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        Right, they don't change the clock for price changes, they'll happen at 2:30 from now on.

  14. Thomas Magnum

    Hello, DZ. How we all doing today, we've all but made it to the home stretch of this IB, so I ask you all what other sports have you been watching or will be looking forward to watching between now and next weekend, or have we been all just keeping up with the internationals if that

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

      There's been some cracking cricket and Scotland France Six Nations was epic.

  15. FPL ElasticO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    I have 2 FTs.....planning to do these moves this week... What do you guys think?

    Watkins & Aina >> DCL & Rudiger

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      I think with the fixture swing for gw31 it may be better to just do Aina to Rudiger and carry 1 transfer over

  16. FPL ElasticO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Are these players worth benching / too risky to bench?

    A. Antonio vs WOL (planned to play forwards - Kane & DCL)
    B. Cancelo vs LEI (planned to play defenders - Shaw, Rudiger, Dallas) Targett**on the bench

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      I'd bench Cancelo over Antonio personally

  17. S3
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Thoughts on GW 30?

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Shaw, Digne
    Salah, Lingard, Son, Gundogan
    Kane, DCL, Watkins

    Sanchez, Stones, Vestergaard Pereira 1FT 2.1ITB

    A. Vestergaard >> Azpi/Rudiger (bench Watkins)
    B. Pereira >> Raphinha (bench Watkins)
    C Pereira + Salah >> Bruno + Jota (-4)

      • 1 Year

      2.
      You already have Rudiger to cover Chelsea defense and Dias may still get minutes in the league, and you have a decent lad in Dunk on the bench as well for cover. Roll the other FT.

      1

  19. CapK
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Seems like your trying to force something a bit, not sure how much you really need to make a transfer. Also Kevin vs leeds is on the horizon, (GW31) who is a great captain shout in that week, if you think he will start could keep and just do Areloa - Mendy to use the transfer and roll the other one to have 2 for GW31

    1. CapK
      6 months, 2 days ago

      fail to TC93

  20. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Transferred in and captained Alonso. Gut feeling move.

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

      Is it a big gut?

        Who would you bench for Neto?

      Cancelo/Dias to Alonso and drop Bale (assuming he doesn't play, could drop Antonio instead)

        Not concerned about Chilwell starting?

          There's a chance of course, but you have a decent bench anyways. I think Alonso will start against a low block plus he's fully rested over the IB unlike Chilwell who has been playing for England. Has high upside against a West Brom defense that has been obliging to bigger sides. Could also look at Havertz for Bale

            Think WBA are rather different nowadays and look like a typical Sam defence. They could capitulate to a top team but that applies to any team really.

            Certainly if you check goals conceded and XGC they are alongside sides like Arsenal, West Ham and Spurs for goals let in and ahead of them on expected goals conceded.

            Still think Alonso a fair shout but don't see any form of rout.

              Sorry forgot to add those stats apply to second half of season.

    3. The Knights Template

      Maybe Bale

          Tricky. I would probably wait but my BB decisions have been very unlucky so maybe you shouldn't listen to me.

    WC active. How does it look?
    Mendy
    TAA,Alonso,Rudiger, Shaw
    KDB, Fernandes, Lingard,Raphinia
    Kane,Bamford

    Forster,Lacazette,Jota,Coady 0.6 m itb

    Triple Chelsea defence, I know. Alonso will be moved on for Cresswell in a few weeks.
    Raphinia and Bamford will be benched for Jota and Lacazette from 31.

    GW 32. Bamford > Ineacheo
    GW 33 KDB > Salah.

    1. HODGE
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Think id have salah in now to save yourself a transfer and doubt Kdb plays 32. Also think a Vardy plan could be worth it

      1. HODGE
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        But its a v good team

      2. The 12th Man
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        Yeh im on the fence with Salah. Might have to lose one of TAA or Jota if I had him from this week. Triple seems a little too much.
        KDB > Salah. Jota > Saka/Neto
        Vardy:- Laca > Vardy somewhere down the road could be an option but not yet.

        1. pingissimus

          Had a peek at Liverpool attacking returns as a team.

          Seems they are fixture neutral and have been all season long. They are as likely to blank or score 3 or more against top 8 or bottom 12. Even the overall average goal count is level despite the 7-0 win.

          Thinking more and more fixtures are comparatively irrelevant and it's all about form. (Adding in there that on form Leeds away is currently one of the poorest fixtures on the calendar and WBA defence has quietly picked up a great deal)

          Only thinking about Mo here from 33 or 35. (No WC of course)

          1. The 12th Man
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 2 days ago

            Yep. Think I’ll go with Mo then and drop TAA to Cresswell and keep the money for a Lacazette >> Vardy move in 32.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Good team.

      You must be chasing with that trip Chelsea D.

  24. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Bale + Veltman > Raphinha + Alonso for -4, Punt before WCing in 31

    Yes or No?

    1. The 12th Man
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Its not ideal taking a -4 before a WC but those players your bringing in have massive upside this week.
      If your not confident with Bale v Newcastle then I'd strongly consider it.

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 2 days ago

        I don't know if Bale will play or not.
        Not confident

        1. The 12th Man
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 2 days ago

          I’d pull the trigger then.

  25. The 12th Man
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 2 days ago

    Is Neto(5.7m) a better pick than Neves(5.1m)?

    1. West End Exile

      I think so.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 2 days ago

      Yes, the games that have been removed from GW32 from the latest fixtures announcement are expected to be put back in GW32 as a midweek fixture. Also according to Ben Crellin, Spurs could get a double in 32 against Everton and Soton. Follow Ben Crellin for more details

    Kane, Bamford, Watkins

    Johnstone, Rudigar, Cresswell, Lingard

      Looks good

      Given that we may have just a couple of very minor DGWs left I don't see the point in holding off for them. The only teams we know about are Spurs Soton Villa and Everton and you're not especially rich in those players as bench options
