  1. Vote for the best FPL goalkeeper of 2019/20 12 days, 4 hours ago

    Sorry, Alonso scored 5, 6, 7 in gameweeks 8, 29, 26. Lundstram scored 5, 12, 1 so swapping VC to Lundstram is the same points total.... » Read

    Yeah, but it's because he didn't play so much that it works. Alonso fills in KDB's non-playing games really well as VC: gameweeks 8, 29, 36 when KDB doesn't play at all, Alonso scored 5, 12, 1. When Alonso doesn't play you get Ings points off the bench. You don't get all of his hauls, but it does fill in quite nicely. » Read

  3. Aleksandar Antonov wins 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League crown 13 days, 3 hours ago

    The guy who won my ML ended up at 3,408 overall and had a TV of 109.8! It's not the be-all and end-all, but he used it really well; he was able to have Salah, Sterling, KDB, Bruno, TAA and Robertson for most of the run-in. His GW 38+ free hit included Robbo, Bruno, KDB, Salah, Dilva, Jimi, Auba, Kane (plus Pope, Aurier and Pieters). Not having to choose between them and not having to use transfers juggling around meant he missed fewer hauls and did really well over the last few weeks. » Read

    I think it's really hard to give that one transfer a week the value it really deserves. Having a bench you can use to change things up at least a bit helps a lot, I think. » Read

    I took a -8 for the last week as well. Bruno, Vardy, Rashford -> Sterling, Nketiah, Kane. Not a complete disaster, but the 8 points cost me a fair bit of rank in the end. Didn't have all that much to play for by then, though! » Read

    I'm going to write down some rules for next season: - Hits are only for injuries - Only look at the long term; you can never know what's going to happen in any one gameweek - Don't waste your chips! And I'm going to have a second team to mess around with - or do the Sky game for more tinkering options! » Read

    Yes - I think a lot depends on how the club is run and the ambition and sorts of players they have. If you go down and then lose a large chunk of the squad because finances or player ambition forces it then you're probably in a worse position then a club who can hang on to a good nucleus of players. If Bournemouth kept all their current players they'd probably do well, but that's not likely, I don't think. » Read

    The hardest thing in this game is doing nothing. Particularly when you spend time on here reading who everyone else is bringing in! » Read

    Well done! I find this kind of thing really interesting. On the face of it, all the evidence was that Silva was a better bet than Bruno for the last week. Form, fixtures, the romantic last PL game narrative, Bruno looking tired in recent games, but it turned out to be the wrong decision. How should we as managers judge a decision like that? Was it still the right thing to do even though it didn't pay off? » Read

    It is. You need luck as well as good decisions to get there. » Read

    Down: 53,360 from 9,107 the year before. Should have been around 25-30k; threw it away in the last week really (with a fairly desperate -8. Stupid decision). Still. Pretty happy with that, still my 4th best finish ever. » Read

    I posted this yesterday as well, but TV was one big factor in my losing my mini-league. He could afford to keep Salah, KDB, Sterling and have both TAA and Robertson while I had to keep juggling between them. It's definitely a factor - particularly over a period where the premiums score well. » Read

    Not sure (it's nothing to do with me!), but it looks like it should have been? » Read

    *best match vice captain with him* » Read

    Hard to be sure, but it may be because Ings fills in Salah's missing fixtures better than anyone fills in for KDB. For example, Salah didn't play GW 9, 13, 15, 30 and Ings scores those weeks were: 9, 6, 9, 11. That total could end up being better than the sum of KDB and the best match captain with him. Hard to be sure there isn't a better combination, but it is plausible. » Read

    I lost my mini league partly because the winner had much higher TV than me and could keep Salah, Sterling and KDB while I had to choose between them. I think it does matter - a bit at least. » Read

    It's a good side, well done on last week! Lots of possibilities with 2FTs. Does Jimi->Nketiah, Bruno->Salah work, then bench Nketiah? Or Bruno->fodder and Jimi->Kane/Auba? Depends who you need to cover? » Read

    Interesting, thanks. I'd agree - no certainty on either, need to bench one... » Read
