    Can we please have a hot topic of how many hits the community did?

    I am on -80, is that above average?

    How many hits did you do?

    Thanks

    1. Rasping Drive

      -60 here.

        I was tempted by the doubles and blanks and the hits worked for most of the time but maybe I went overboard judging by the first couple of comments?

          What percentage of your hits were successful? To me that's the only metric that matters. If it's more than 50% then maybe you don't need to reduce your hit-taking.

          I took -36 and I consider 4/7 weeks with hits to have been successful (two were -8). I had 0/2 successes in regular GWs, 2/3 in BGWs, and 2/2 in DGWs/TGWs.

            A lot of hits may means bad planning as manager could plan to take less hits. Not always obv I cant plan everyting esp with injuries, blanks, doubles etc.

          As long as it worked, it shouldnt be an issue.

          I got lucky with very few injuries/suspension and DGW/BGW fixtures falling in such a way that it suited my team.

          6 out of 8 hits were in SGW.

          Hits idiot. 😀

          I started climbing the ranks only when I stopped taking hits.1.5 million in GW27 to 500k in GW38.

    5. diesel001
      • 4 Years

      -24 (6 hits). Probably should be a little bit more aggressive with them, but not too much more.

    6. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      -116 , final rank 235k.

      Last season: -36, 13k.

      Safe to say if I sign up next season, I'm going to ease off on the -4s.

        -92, rank 87k I take a lot of hits just that kind of manager.
        Season before last I did take my most hits ever about 120-40 hits cant remember exactly and had a top 10k finish

      One hit for BB in DGW35. No hits last season!

    12. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      -48 points in hits with a finish of 5.7k

    13. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      -32
      Most were success. Took 3 hits in first 4GWs 🙂 and just 2 in last 23 GWs.
      Many hits often (not always) means bad planning imo but sometimes hits are ok as cant prepare for injuries or ideally plan for all BGW/DGW.

    14. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      -40. To many as for my usual standards, but this season was really diffrent because of numeber of BGW and DGW.

    15. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Transfers 71 so hits hits = 34? I would like to think that I gained overall but not so sure. Certainly would like to take less next year but been saying that for 10 years ! Lol.

    16. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      -24 in the first 34 GWs
      -28 in the last 4 GWs
      -52 in total, but i went wild in the end.

      This is the one thing I'm going to temper next season. 124 points in hits. Very few ever paid off

    21. James H
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Only -12 for me. But that's more my managerial style (with normal caveat that every season is different - have to be adaptable if circumstances demand it).

    For the past four seasons I have been in a City supporter club no United player league.

    I have won it three years in four and came second the other time.

    Happy to say (as much as I dislike the Rags), that I will be leaving that league, ON TOP, and from now on playing for OR!

    It has been awkward for four years explaining my decisions and questioning advice with no United players. But it worked!

    Cheers and see everyone for next season when things are a bit different again for me, and I can attack my best ever finish of top 5k!

    Been another great year for me!

    Cheers FFS

      Tbh, I'm a United fan and the only one of our players in my team for the vast majority of the season was Bruno. In FPL terms, better a no Utd than no City policy! Bruno might boost your rank next season though.

    In 18/19 season, I got 2316 points for OR 44,270

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I’m not convinced that total number of points can be compared across seasons. So many variables such as #chips, cleansheets, total goals scored etc.

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          No that's true, just an interesting comparison for me

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Lots of teams can't defend so the points are inflated this time

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Makes sense

      2. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Sounds true but I have had my highest average points for GK and DEF this year - 4.61 and 4.66 PPG

        MIDS were 5.92 and FWDS 5.03

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 28 days ago

          It probably just meant that teams either concede a lot or kept CS. Also more defenders are contributing to attacking returns.

    Thinking about Spurs and their supposed super league status.

    From Leicester's perspective paying Bale back some more millions (the highest paid player in England) has effectively meant Spurs largesse has not only denied Leicester that top 4 spot but gifted it to Chelsea in the process!

    But they won't sell Kane to their rivals!!

    Funny old game.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years

      Imagine if he had actually played a bit more.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I guess he played when he could.

        He's supposed to be good at telling the gaffer when he's ready to play.

        Sounds like a brilliant position to be in for £565k each week!

    Season review: OR 24,773

    Butchered first quarter of the season (2.3 million OR end of GW12) by ignoring the template and missed an opportunity to reach the top 10K in the last fifth of the season (stagnated between OR 20k-30k GW 32-38) by being too conservative with template captains and transfers while protecting ML lead.

    I suppose I'll try to do the reverse next year!

      Nah. Technically still creates the chances and more points = more fun.

        its probably more fun but doesnt really make sense 😀

    2. potatoace

      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'm all up for rules for assist being relaxed tbh. So long as they are clear.
      The most annoying issue this year have been the extremely strictand prescriptive definition for assists then they go and contradict their own rules every week with dubious awards. Many without justification given.

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Think assists for kicking a ball that hits someone's hand and leads to a penalty scored are a bit lame

      1. TallestJohn
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Still remember the worst FPL assist of all time: opening day of 2018-19, a Sanchez shot which hit deflected off one Leicester player then hit the arm of a second Leicester player for a penalty.

    Well that's season no 15 completed. Worst one ever at 600k. Nine top 30k's, a 48k, an 81k, and four six-digits with this one being a new pb worst which was previously 280k!

    No Sergio Ramos in the Spain squad. England should follow suit with Henderson and McGuire. A players not worth including if he's not match fit.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      They had 2 unused spots.

      Gareth Southgate may name as many as 30 and whittle it down due to upcoming games etc.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Its a 6 men squad, isnt it? Carrying couple of injured players may not be an issue if they are likely to recover. Agree with Henderson though, has missed too many games.
