  1. The lessons learned from 2018/19's Midfielders of the Year candidates 15 hours, 45 mins ago

    All of my suggestions are either minor tweaks rather than big ticket items or have implications for the nature of the site (and all have been suggested at least once over the years) but I'll make them anyway...1. Current search function looks site-wide for articles containing the search string. Reintroduce the search function that used to exist at an article level that allowed you to find comments within that article. 2. Introduce the ability to search within a user's posting history. 3. Option to 'ignore' posters so that their comments are no longer visible unless you choose to reveal them. 4. Option to 'follow' posters so that you can easily see the latest activity from those you value most. 5. Certain logical data points in the members area are 'missing'. You can construct a table with Chances conceded(left), Chances conceded(right) and Chances conceded(centre) but there's no data point for Chances conceded(total). Same goes for Crosses conceded and possibly more but I haven'… » Read

  2. The lessons learned from 2018/19's Defenders of the Year candidates 3 days, 22 hours ago

    I do think 5 at the back could be a great strategy because generally speaking it allows you to have more players from the top teams (not that the other teams don't provide great fantasy options of course).The main issue I see with it is managing to stick to your guns when there are multiple attacking options hitting form/fixture and you can't fit them in as easily as those playing 3-4-3/3-5-2. A few weeks of no clean sheets and it's easy to lose patience. Not one for the fickle manager, that's for sure. » Read

  6. What to expect from Norwich City manager Daniel Farke in FPL 4 days, 21 hours ago

    I expect a lot of usernames/team names to involve Farke this season and I don't expect a single one of them to be even the tiniest bit funny. » Read

    Cheers Geoff, not going to make or break the site but I used to like it 🙂 » Read

  8. How the FFScout captain poll winners performed this season 5 days, 15 hours ago

    Not sure if you remember but years ago the comments section used to work so that the user grav was a link to their profile/posting history and the username was linked to whatever URL they had specified in the website field of their profile.If the user hadn't specified a URL then their name was grey rather than green (I think) and it was unclickable.I was much more inclined to try to check people's team links in those days because you could see immediately who had a link and it was a single click to access it.Obviously everyone still had the choice to link or not. » Read

    Oh god, I think I'd blocked that part out. Did exactly the same - missed out on back to back hattricks and then he didn't even play the plum fixture. Terrible luck really. » Read

    Aubameyang was a nightmare for me. Had him from the start then sold him in GW8 as he'd got me 2 goals in 7 games and was an injury doubt. Sold him for Kane who had Cardiff at home and had just scored against Barcelona. Kane blanked against 10 man Cardiff whilst Aubameyang made a 28 minute substitute appearance and managed to get 2 goals 1 assist and 3 bonus. The next week Kane blanked against West Ham and Aubameyang got 2 goals and 3 bonus in a 29 minute appearance.From GW8 to GW14 he went on a run of 8 goals and 63 points in 7 weeks.I then bought him back and kept patience with him for 14 weeks during which time he got 6 goals and 67 points.Sold him again in GW29 and from then until the end of the season he got 6 goals in his last 10 games.All in all he scored 8 goals and 95 points whilst in my team ( 21 weeks at 4.5 ppg) and 14 goals and 110 points when not in my team (17 weeks at 6.5 ppg)The mad thing is I'll do it again next season - he's an awesome striker who I m… » Read

    Yeah, it would have been a long time before I guessed Glen Johnson as a 7.0 valued defender. » Read

  16. How the final day of the season unfolded from a Fantasy perspective 7 days, 20 hours ago

    Theoretically yes but one thing the above highlights to me is how the pricing of defenders has been tweaked over the years - a definite compression a bit like they did with goalkeepers.That said, I do think TAA and Robertson are special cases. » Read

    My second highest was that year. These youngsters wouldn't be able to cope with defenders priced like that of course, different game these days 😉 » Read
