  1. Which EURO 2020 teams will have home advantage and will it matter? 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Have done a draft league. The draft is always the best part anyway. Didn't know most of the players that were drafted at the end, but do now! It will be very hands off as it's just essentially 7 gameweeks and once team is set, it's set (with transfers if you feel like it). None of this changing captain nonsense, which I can see pissing a lot of people off. Even missing deadlines in group stages isn't likely to backfire either. » Read

  2. Who made our 2020/21 FPL Team of the Season? 14 days, 2 hours ago

    Bit bored so was wondering how much this set-and-forget back 5 would cost next season? Would be playing 4-4-2. Trent, Dias, Chilwell, Shaw, Dunk 7.5, 6, 6, 6, 5? Can't see any of them being any lower tbh. Chilwell might even be 6.5. » Read

    Imo Souceks points were very predictable. When everyone benched him, he got points. » Read

  4. Euro 2020 Fantasy strategy: How best to pick and swap captains on a Matchday 18 days, 21 hours ago

    Haha good to hear. Found myself in FPL purgatory once again (last 4 seasons have finished in the 40ks and I can't seem to get out!), but given I couldn't seem to pick a captain to save my life, I think it's probably a decent return. Swings and roundabouts at the end too - played bench boost and ended up with 3 no shows and negative points from Dawson and 20+ bench scores in weeks either side of that. But some flukey hauls from Nat Phillips and Rudiger gave me a couple of decent weeks at the end. How you get on in the end? » Read

  5. Euro 2020 Fantasy strategy: How best to pick and swap captains on a Matchday 18 days, 23 hours ago

    1. Dallas. Picked him up for a hit when I couldn't get 11 out and he repaid me with 8 points straight away. Regret losing him on wildcard late on, especially as he got 2 goals against City that week. 2. Soucek. Absolute enabler. Played him every week around the Winter period and watched the points roll in (which was usually when everyone else benched him). 3. Martinez. Was on him early and kept him all season. Should have ditched on 2nd wildcard but missed the deadline umming and ahhing about it. 4. Bruno. Scores goals after the final whistle. Gets assists for not touching the ball. What's not to like? 5. Trossard. Captained him for the blank gameweek haul when everyone else went Kane. Resurrected my season somewhat. Most hated players (FPL-wise). Vardy, Justin, Son, Foden, Craig F***** Dawson (think he actually scored net negative points for my team, while Coufal (who I sold for him on WC) got about 30 points in that time. » Read

    Lessons: I have learned that no matter what I do, I will continue to finish between 40 and 50k. How to improve: I don't think it's possible. » Read

    Watched the Chelsea match and stayed away from my phone, so I was only aware of the goals from the Leicester and Liverpool matches really. Picked up my phone at full time to see only Kane and Salah had any sort of return for me and that Jota had come off the bench for a 2 minute cameo to block my Dawson CS. Auba punt was predictably a disaster too. Was quite nice to have all the disappointment out the way in one fell swoop tbh. Chunky red arrow, but satisfied with a 40k finish and some ML wins in a season where I couldn't pick a captain to save my life. » Read
