    The guy is a huge bell end. He has everyone over a barrel because if you call out his nonsense he blocks you and then you don't get to see price rises and falls. » Read

    I think you're right but surely Gareth will still rotate his strikers regardless. » Read

    Simple question: To get the players you want, would you ....? A) Take a -12. B) Wildcard. » Read

  12. Is the Joe Lepper's Goal Imminent Table the Best Way to Forecast FPL Points 13 days, 11 hours ago

    DCLs goal conversion is currently at 40%. I would expect that to roughly half going forward. » Read

    I agree. The one goal max filter can skew the data in some circumstances. » Read

  14. Is the Joe Lepper's Goal Imminent Table the Best Way to Forecast FPL Points 14 days, 2 hours ago

    Let's break it down. What is it's basic premise? Players who have a high volume of goal attempts without scoring many goals. For me, that's not revealing if a player is "due"; it reveals which players aren't clinical and couldn't hit a barn door. To reveal if a player is in fact due, you need to go way beyond the last four gameweeks and sanity check 1 to 3 seasons worth of data for the player ... while also looking at post xG data to see if the player's shooting ability is a factor. Richarlison is a case in point. He is currently top of goals imminent but his goal conversion rate this season is a measly 7% - and even that was a penalty! Moreover he has been a notoriously bad finisher and has had a below average goal conversion rate for every season he has been at Everton. So all those people who bring in Richarlison because he is top of this famous table are going to get stung because they haven't scratched beneath the surface of the data. And THATS why goals imminent is inher… » Read

  15. Is the Joe Lepper's Goal Imminent Table the Best Way to Forecast FPL Points 14 days, 6 hours ago

    No. Goals imminent is flawed. It needs columns for shot accuracy and xGOT and shooting goals added. This is because some players have a long history of a below 10% conversion rate and they will stay on the table for a long, long time. » Read

  16. My FPL tips for those struggling after a chaotic start to the 2020/21 season 16 days, 1 hour ago

    We're going to hear the arguments made in this article 3 times. Once, in the pro pundits column. Two, in the scoutcast. Three, on black box. Repeating the same points and opinions 3 times in a week is not great. FFS are flogging Az like he is Harry Kane in the middle of a Europa League campaign! » Read

  18. Learning from the Great and the Good 20/21 - Gameweek 4 16 days, 10 hours ago

    Az mentioned on the scoutcast that there must be someone who sold and bought Son x 2 and dodged his two hauls - and there was! Ronka! » Read

    Great article, GH. Always an enjoyable read. I'm loving the new look Joe. Looking at his career history, he is obviously an exceptional manager, but he has never played the game in a maverick manner before. This Bowie incarnation of the artist formerly known as "Mr. Dullard" is going to be interesting! » Read
