  1. The FPL Eye Test: The pros and cons of Palace attackers for Double Gameweek 37 10 days, 23 hours ago

    I do overthink ! Explains my rank fall from 88k in GW18 to 222k currently. I am not bitter lol ! » Read

  2. The FPL Eye Test: The pros and cons of Palace attackers for Double Gameweek 37 10 days, 23 hours ago

    I think there is skill in in the game in understanding how chips work and when to use them and the other basics of the game. There is then a further layer of skill in knowledge of football/eye test along with understanding of the statistics and fixtures etc. And as you say some judgement, but there is luck when you land on the big hauls. There still is lots of luck no matter how good a player you are, eg look at Az last year vs this, Lateriser last year vs this. They are still the same seasoned FPL players. Fabio Borges seems to be the exception. » Read

  3. The FPL Eye Test: The pros and cons of Palace attackers for Double Gameweek 37 11 days, 6 mins ago

    Listening to Black Box and makes me howl with laughter how they substitute the word "luck" with "variance", because its impossible for a content creator to concede there are huge dollops of luck involved in landing on the right player at the right time !, particularly when someone hauls. Don't get me wrong as generally, the more good decisions you make, the luckier you may get. Variance is a word commonly used in accounting analysis interestingly enough. Within accounting analysis context it is correctly applied, but please within Fantasy Football, the word is luck ! » Read

  4. FPL Gameweek 36 Scout Picks: City triple-up and no Son 17 days, 12 hours ago

    Only 2 attacking returns since gw20 and they were assists. When right back, not so effective. » Read

  5. My Bench Boost team and transfer plans for FPL Double Gameweek 36 17 days, 14 hours ago

    Work it out as I like to stop short of naming and shaming !. If he hauls I will crawl back into my shell !! » Read

  6. My Bench Boost team and transfer plans for FPL Double Gameweek 36 17 days, 14 hours ago

    Its hardly objective advice based on 2 attacking returns (assists) in 15 game weeks though. The expert offered no stats to back up heir advice which is what I would expect from an expert. Dont get me wrong, because of the Man C defence, Cancelo is a good option, just not necessarily captainable. Your point about Cancelo at RB is very valid and a decent explanation as to why his attacking returns have been virtually non existent. You should be on the show ! » Read

    Just because Man C have a double game week, a certain expert on Fantasy Football Scout Q&A todasy suggesting Cancelo as a captain option, even tripple captain. Since GW20 he has only had 2 attacking returns and they were assists !. Cancelo gets most of his points because of clean sheets. He has lots of very low XG long range shots which makes him look good. Good player, but from an attacking point of view he flatters to deceive big time. I am not sure why an "expert" would suggest Cancelo given the other excellent dgw36 options. » Read

  9. The Watchlist: Our pick of the FPL players for the rest of 2021/22 19 days, 22 hours ago

    Good point re Salah & Trent. That said, they do have more top quality forward options as alternatives to Salah Whilst Trent has just got over hamstring tweak. I would not bet against Robertson being rested, but will be surprised given Timiskas is not remotely at his level. » Read

  10. The Watchlist: Our pick of the FPL players for the rest of 2021/22 19 days, 22 hours ago

    Lots of podcast noise re Robertson being rested Saturday. He came off after 80 minutes and Liverpool played Tuesday night and don't play until Saturday. That is 3 full days rest. he is one of their "leaders". They are pushing for the PL and cannot afford any dropped points. Personally I cannot see it. » Read

  11. FPL Gameweek 35 team and injury news: Live press conference updates 24 days, 20 hours ago

    Despite good decision making, yet again the amount of luck involved in this game is unreal. Reece James last night could have easily scored one, possibly two, and also could have easily had two or three assists and he finishes up with 2 points. Alonso played ok, but one (very good effort), and he finishes up with a goal. Again look at Lateriser last year, scrambling around at about 1m, this time in the top 1k. Its still a good game and at least you don't loose the contents of your wallet at the bookmakers ! » Read

  12. FPL Gameweek 35 Scout Picks early selection: Villa pair among four double-ups 28 days, 20 hours ago

    I don't think it was stonewall, but I think its was a penalty. Anywhere else on the pitch it would have been a foul. Gordon had roasted Matip for pace and Matip was struggling even to grapple him back. Certainly a home team decision. » Read

    Good point and decent idea. » Read

  14. FPL Gameweek 35 Scout Picks early selection: Villa pair among four double-ups 28 days, 21 hours ago

    One thing that needs sorting pronto before next season is a bringing forward of the deadline to eradicate leaking of team news which gives those "in the know" are completely unfair advantage. Maybe midnight the day before a Saturday morning deadline and lunchtime on Friday for a Friday deadline. Its tanamount to cheating to be quite frank or at best a completely unfair advantage. » Read
