Hall of Fame

World’s best FPL manager Fábio Borges speaks as we honour Hall of Fame greats

We hear from arguably the world’s greatest Fantasy Premier League (FPL) manager, Fábio Borges, as we launch our Hall of Fame roll of honour.

Here at Fantasy Football Scout, we believe it is important to acknowledge the best of the best when it comes to FPL.

This means that every year, we will toast the top five managers in our prestigious Career Hall of Fame.

The managers who can break into the top five will be immortalised on our Hall of Fame page.

You can check your own position in the Hall of Fame by becoming a Fantasy Football Scout Member and joining either of our two FPL mini-leagues.

Our Live Hall of Fame, which is updated throughout the season, had its first refresh for 2021/22 over the international break and you’ll be able to see all the correct new IDs attached to the managers in question.

And where better to start our mini-profiles of the elite managers than with Fábio Borges, our Hall of Fame number one who can boast of six top 5k finishes in a row.

You can read a more detailed interview with Fábio here.

Hall of Fame Career #1-#5 12
How do you generally approach FPL? What is your main strategy/style?

Fábio: I am definitely a stats-oriented manager. I do watch one or two matches every weekend but it is basically impossible to remember every small detail of every game and stats basically do that for me.

Regarding hits, it is very rare that I take them outside of Double Gameweeks. I like to plan ahead very carefully and since I am a very patient manager, unless there is an injury crisis, I like to stick to my guns.

What is your best FPL moment?

Fábio: When I captained Charlie Austin for a hat-trick in my first season playing. I was a casual player before but I enjoyed the thrill of a captaincy haul so much that I started taking the game much more seriously after that moment.

What are your top tips for securing a good finish?

Fábio: 1) Fixtures over form. We never know when a good period of form starts and when it ends so I think it is better to mainly focus on long-term stats since they give you a better view of what each player can deliver on average. Fixtures, on the other hand, are very important, since on average, every player does better in easier fixtures.

2) Transfers are precious. Don’t sell a player just because he blanked and someone else scored a hat-trick. Always try to buy reliable players that you feel confident having for at least four Gameweeks, even if they blank in the first three. By picking set-and-forget options and sticking with them through bad times, you can use your precious transfers on weaker spots in your team without having to take too many hits.

3) Be aware that luck is a massive factor in this game. Just because you had a bad Gameweek doesn’t necessarily mean that you made bad decisions. At the same time, just because your captain hauled, it doesn’t mean you made a good decision either. Always analyse your decisions with a critical eye but without being too harsh on yourself. After all, most factors in every football match are out of your control and happenstance plays a huge part in your team’s points in a single Gameweek.

What stats do you pay most attention to? What is your favourite tool in the Premium Members Area?

Fábio: I mainly focus on expected goals (xG) these days since I believe it is by far the most useful stat (assuming the model is reliable). I usually prioritise long-term stats since there is a lot of variance/luck in smaller samples.

    Is Gundogan's time up for Man City? with KDB back you think Gundogan is relegated as back up now?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Even if he starts, its likely to be a deeper role plus less/no set-piece duties.

      1. kobewan

        you think it is a must to get rid of Gundogan now?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          With Southampton next, I would keep. After that, sell.

    2. Gunneryank
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I don't think so. I don't think Pep looks at it like that. He would probably claim that Gundo is essential when he needs a box-to-box midfielder that has an eye for goal. KDB is more of a box-to-box midfielder who has an eye for goal and is a great dribbler. Then you have specialist players like Bernardo Silva, who is more of a box-to-box midfielder with an eye for goal who is also South American. Then you have the excellent Rodri, who is a box-to-box midfielder with a eye for goal who can get stuck in the tackle.

          is it a good time to get rid of Gundo now?

          I have 1 FT planning to use it on Ings > Bamford (if healthy) and take a hit for Gundogan move for Jota/Greenwood/Gray..

          is the move justified? or should I hold on Gundo for a bit longer planning to WC on GW7

          1. tbos83
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I would say Gundo > Jota might be worth a hit

      • Super Saints

        2 months, 17 days ago

        Pep loves Gundog and rightly so

        1. Gunneryank
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Plus with a nickname like that, how do you not?

            1. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Exactly

        2 months, 17 days ago

        The entire City squad is now a no-go. 5 spots for 9 fit attackers, and any defence relying on Ake is not fixture-proof. Wish Pep had said how long Laporte and Stones would be out for, but it's Pep

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Grealish is an option but him aside I agree!

        2. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I'll be selling Torres after his benching this game week, god i made some horrible decisions on my WC

          1. Gunneryank
              2 months, 17 days ago

              You're not alone. I'm still going to give Torres a couple GWs. Shipping out after just having given him a slot seems premature. Maybe we were all fooled though.

              1. Super Saints
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                He will be benched on Sat, I'm selling which will fund James the following week

                1. Gunneryank
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    Nice. I may be doing something similar to fund James and Lukaku, but over a few weeks. (Have Rudiger).

            • Alisson WondHaaland
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Largely agree but I think Torres offers enough value to just hold him through benchings

            • Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I agree to an extent, I still think they’ll get lots of clean sheets in the league as they always do, but less so in Europe just due to the nature of the competition

          2. Boberella
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Do we reckon Lukaku will rise again before the deadline?
            Really want to punt on Vardy this week instead, but could be priced out if he rises.

            1. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Just get Lukaku

            2. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              If it was another player I’d say take the Vardy punt, but being priced out of Lukaku would lead to a painful surgery of the side to bring him in I’m guessing so probably just best to bring in Lukaku now

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

            Torres seems to avoid goals - city score 6 and he isn’t involved directly in any!

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Is he playing Firmino like role?

              1. Eat my goal!
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Firmino was at least the assister, but yes you could argue the role is similar

            2. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              He won the penalty i think? But yeah since i brought him in he's started both games, City have scored at least 7 and he hasnt had one

            3. Third Eye Vision
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              He had a goal ruled out on a very marginal offside after a VAR check.

                Goal avoidance

            4. Casual Player
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Had one disallowed for offside, didn't he?

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                He was the one who checked the VAR and disallowed it, agree with OP, classic goal avoidance.

            Rudiger or shaw? Thanks

            1. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              TAA James Shaw is ideal

            2. kobewan
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Rudiger Gw7 up might a better choice

            3. Gunneryank
                2 months, 17 days ago

                So i shipped Shaw last week on my WC for Rudiger, not because i don't like Shaw, but because on a WC you need to look ahead and Chelsea assets going forward should be a goldmine (except for City obv).

              Main dilemma this week is should I do Antonio > Jimenez, and if so sub him in for who?

              Sanchez
              Shaw Digne TAA
              Gray Salah(c) Jota Benny Torres
              Dennis Ronaldo

              Steele Antonio White Livra

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Yes and sub him in for Dennis, you'll need those subs this week

              Jesus or Bamford ? GW5

              1. Super Saints
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Bamford

              2. Third Eye Vision
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                I went Bamford. I toyed with the idea of Jesus, but no guarantees on a start with other City players returning to their squad.

              Guys help. Need to take a hit to swap Kane and Pogba for Salah and a < 7.5 Fwd.

              I'm thinking:

              A) Jimenez
              B) Eduoard
              C) Someone else?

              Thoughts please?

                  I personally wouldn't do any of those. Sorry. Swap Kane for Ronaldo or Lukaku. Pogba may net you something here and there. 7 assists in 4 games is decent.

                  • 5 Years

                  • 2 Years

                  Could take a punt on Pukki. Norwich have some decent fixtures coming up.

                      Did that last night.
                      WC was a disaster last week with Dier, DCL and Antonio.

                              aah, yes I agree. Son, Kane, Auba and KdB will soon enough come into the equation again.

                                Auba and son are interesting - feel with the arrival of ron/rom Kane is obsolete and they priced Kdb way too high

                    Final decision on WC:
                    A) Sanchez, James, 4.5fwd (442)
                    B) Schmeicel, White, Dennis (442)
                    C) Sanchez, Duffy, Pukki (343)

                    Got to be A?

                        Not quite that straightforward is it? What all the "A"'s are expecting then as the 4.5 fwd is non playing is James to outscore Duffy + Pukki each week. Really??

                      Anyone considering guaita on WC? We know he's got a haul in him and Palace at looking improved. Could be a good option at 4.5m

                          Considering a Palace keeper is outside my thoughts to be honest. Yes they don't look bad but...a few keepers at that price that are playing in better defenses.

                          Fair enough, I might take a punt on him. Can't see any of the other 4.5s ripping it up so not much downside. Was only 2 seasons ago that he was hitting 10s and 11s nearly every week around Christmas time

                          Palace's xGC is surprisingly low so far.

                          Torres who has failed to score in 5 of his 6 starts this season...

                            Besides the arsenal game whenever he's scored poor guys goals have been ruled offside or a foul in build up play.

                              That's my thinking as well. Only worry is seeing Pool concede a few last night. However thats without the beast VVD in defence...

                                Semedo is fine. Wolves are at home vs a very poor Watford attack. I have 2 West Ham players and while i am not a fan of their defensive performance, they still will attack once Antonio is back. They have a handful of great fixtures up until GW 11. Sometimes you have to hold your nerve. Over the next few weeks you could look to move out West Ham assets starting with Coufal. Once they get to GW 11, their fixtures fall off a cliff. Try to plan for that. I will happily start Antonio until then.

                                      Think 4-4-2 is the way forward? Was thinking of a city defender now and change to james in a couple of gws. Not too sure though.

                                        Seems very involved, I’d consider Gallagher too, he’s outstanding and seems to have been handed a very key role by the manager. Fixtures aren’t great in the short term, but he has the stuff to keep producing points.

                              Is this team worth it if it means rotating Sissoko/Livramento/Williams? Leaves 0.1 ITB so Jota can be Greenwood/Torres depending on form/fixtures.

                              Sanchez
                              TAA James Shaw
                              Salah Jota Raphina Doucoure

                              Steele Sissoko Liv Williams 4.5

                                It’s a good team but inflexible

                                & start Doucoure every week?

                                Not for me, depends how much you like Ronaldo.

                                Where do you make changes from there if it doesn’t work?

                                  2 months, 17 days ago

                                  What sort of changes?

                                  TAA Salah Ronaldo Lukaku will never change
                                  Sanchez can become any 4.5
                                  The defenders can become most other defenders
                                  Jota at a lovely price point and lots of options at the Raph/Doucoure price points

                                  1. The Suspended One
                                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                    I just don’t think you can move for say Son or Havertz or Sancho if they were to fire. Buying more expensive defenders would be tough. Always moves to make, but structure can be important early in the season.

                                    1. Super Saints
                                      • 5 Years
                                      2 months, 17 days ago

                                      You couldnt have Son/Havertz etc with TAA Salah Ron and Rom so you'd have to downgrade one of them

                                        That’s my point, the inflexibility is a big downside of getting the big three (plus TAA)

                                          Surely the fact they are all nailed on for 200 plus points outweighs that?

                                  Clearly one of Sissoko Liv Williams will be starting

                                      Only issue i have is that rotation you speak of, and Doucoure being a starter every week. Feels like you're hamstringing yourself. Gray and Gallagher have decent underlying stats if i recall...any way they are a factor?

                                        Doucoure could be Gray/Gallagher, right now im prefering Gallagher

                                Unpopular opinion but I think Pepe is a very underrated option, especially on a WC.

                                He was extremely good at the latter end of last season and has looked decent in the games he has played in this season apart from Chelsea (He missed the City game due to illness).

                                He was already starting 90% of games at the end of last season and with Willian gone too, he is pretty nailed on that right hand side. Fixtures are looking good for Arsenal too.

                                I would consider him over the likes of Jota or Greenwood given they are both very short term picks, especially if it looks like Firmino will be back soon

                                  You are right, that’s a very unpopular opinion

                                  😉

                                  I remember not getting Greenwood because he was a “short term” pick. Good times…

                                    Greenwood not due to minutes but due to fixtures

                                        United fixtures have been fine and are for another month.

                                        Not sure Man United is especially prone to tough fixtures, they are going to donkey stomp teams outside the top 4. Not worried about Everton Leicester or Spurs

                                      I wish you luck but i agree with absolutely zero percent of this. Arsenal have to show me they are not a amateur college side. One goal vs Norwich is not enough.

                                        Thanks guys, was thinking of doing A then reverting to B GW7, but I could easily get priced out so C is probably best long term.

                                    Going to do the Ronaldo Bruno switcheroo but a bit hesitant, hope it doesn't backfire.

                                      Bruno scored from his only shot again last week, lovely parting gift

                                    Semedo or Marcal?

                                      Semedo

                                      Semedo will get more bps, I think those assists were flukey, definitely the former for me

                                      Semedo if you can afford it

                                    Suddenly, I am a triple wolves owner (Sa, Semedo and Jimenez)

                                      I’ve debated Sa, not sure he will score well, seems like a safe pair of hands though

                                        Did you see him try and save Greenwoods shot? Average keeper at best

                                        Equal mix of scared and excited? I am going to be a double Wolves owner here soon.

                                      Play Ayling or sell Antonio to Bamford/Jiménez ?

                                          Play Ayling. Keep Antonio for the love of all that is holy!

                                            Will Ayling this gw + Antonio next one outscore Jiménez againt brentford + Southampton ?

                                                Maybe, who knows? Point is that Antonio has several really good fixtures and, unless you're getting Ronaldo and Lukaku, he's a good pick for a month or so. Plus Jimenez hasn't looked himself this season and i think he's a complete trap tbh.

                                          Only took 3.6 million people to bring in Ronaldo for him to rise 0.1

                                              Does he rise again, or is that it?
