Meet the Manager: FPL world number three Brett Taylor

In a special end-of-season edition of Meet the Manager, Az chats to 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) world number three Brett Taylor.

Brett not only secured a podium finish overall but also won our Fantasy Football Scout mini-league:


Brett discusses luck, data analysis, predictive models, ‘what if’ moments and more as he assesses his stellar campaign.

The Australian number one also reveals what he did differently after a disappointing last two years.

A 15-year veteran of the game, Brett reflects on a mixed season history and how he’s evolved as a manager, including paying more attention to ‘effective ownership’.

A ‘no Haaland’ approach in Gameweek 1 of 2022/23 is also proposed…

    I remember when these dead periods used to be about MBP posting lengthy posts and then starting arguments with other posters.

      This is great time to talk about FPL. No anxiety, no stress. All nicely behind a veil of ignorance. It's a good place to be for a while.

      For a couple of weeks you can talk about FPL in a philosophical sense. Like an utopia or a theory for what it should be.

      Then reality creeps slowly in. First it's so compelling. New players, new prices, new hope. A hope that seems endless. Everything is possible. Everything is awesome. But then the season kicks off. GW1. The die is cast. Reality starts to swallow you, bit by bit, one rage transfer at time.

      What was once a beautiful, white tabula rasa, will become Dorian Gray's portrait of your failures and bad choices.

      But that's weeks away. Right now, everything is possible, everything is good, everything is eerie. Paradise is meant to be dull. But we want our excitement. We want those prices. We want those games. We want the blood and agony, even when it's eventually ours.

      This might be the heaven, but we want our hurt. Because the hurt makes us feel alive. And the hurt is coming, but first comes the excitement.

        Well said.

        Also the usual toxicity is taking a break.

        Does anyone else watch Tifo analyses and get frustrated by their poor understanding, communication and presentation of stats? I'd love to take more from their channels, but they are too often misleading and full of face-palm moments.

          They are entertainment but I get what you mean. I got "lucky" finding them on a podcast when very sick in hospital. As bad as they might be they remain close to my heart.

            Well they are journalists and analysts too. I like everything else about them (except the table screen thing they use to make their points 5 times the necessary duration haha). Kind of integral to get a basic understanding of basic stats and the basics of making graphs though imo. Would make them more or a must-watch for me, rather than an infuriating one! Hope you have recovered well!

              Try listening to Goldbridge and then you might worship them. I do understand you though.

        For all those who remember Gemmill and Rioch in Argentina.
        For those of you who remember all the great Welsh players in your time.
        Take solace for Ukraine; if they beat Wales and:
        Support them to your limits to succeed in the next World Cup!
        I HATE PUTIN!

        Hopefully this Aussie FFS league winner backs up better than the previous Aussie FFS league winner. Whoever that was.
