    Hayden > Guendozi here... It doesn’t get any more rock n roll than that 🙂 » Read

    Yep Sunday even - big final day Sunday deadline 🙂 » Read

  3. Fantasy Premier League appear to hint at further Gameweeks being added 12 days, 10 hours ago

    "We can confirm that any chips you retain at present (e.g. Triple Captain, Bench Boost, Free Hit and/or Wildcard) would remain available for you, in accordance with the Game Rules" In a 38-GW environment, retained chips are by definition are unavailable come 11:30am tomorrow... The fact that they say retained chips remain available suggests at least one GW beyond 111:30am tomorrow... At least one GW beyond 11:30am tomorrow suggests the ability exists to add GWs... Lots of conditional deductions possible - but they're all still conditional, not absolute » Read

  4. Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL forwards with the best goal threat 12 days, 10 hours ago

  5. Last chance for Virtual FPL bosses to use their Wildcard as midway point nears 12 days, 10 hours ago

    Boom Reads to me like additional GW's in FPL if we get additional fixtures in real life It's also consistent with their previous "GW38 = 0 points" comms » Read

  6. Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL forwards with the best goal threat 12 days, 15 hours ago

    The silence is deafening from FPL Hopefully Project Restart come up with a fixture list & they whack in those 9 extra GW's with a few DGW's for the teams with 10 games Wouldnt be surprised to just see the whole thing canned this weekend either unfortunately » Read

  7. Wildcard activity increases amid uncertainty over FPL plans beyond Gameweek 38 15 days, 13 hours ago

    Yep that part of their statement is very black & white - i.e. in GW38 = 0 points Obviously they can also go back on that & everything changes, but taking them at their word it looks very unlikely that there'll be any type of mega GW - either season ends this weekend, or they add extra Gameweeks. They could of course possibly do a Mega-GW39 - but why stop at adding one extra gameweek, when they could attract multiple times the volume of clicks & advertising revenue by adding more Gameweeks For my money, the survival of football as we know it is in big trouble though - If (hopefully not when) project restart gets derailed we're in a situation where next season can't be played either, until a vaccine which could be a year away or may or may not even work » Read

  8. Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL midfielders with the best assist potential 18 days, 8 hours ago

    Prefer AWBonus tbh But definitely if slabhead finds the net from Bruno's corners he could be gold. Baby Williams could be set for some good pointage as well - but its a bit of a job share with Mr Shaw that makes him a risky starter » Read

  9. Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL midfielders with the best assist potential 18 days, 12 hours ago

    Looks pretty good - you could possibly look at Leicester attack (I’m still backing Vardy as a Suárez-lite in that Rodgers system - hopefully he doesn’t have any more kids or injuries) & (don’t laugh!) Man Utd defence though Utd had actually finally started converting those (consistently solid) underlying defensive stats (or at least XGc) into Clean sheets with 5 CS in their last 8 games, and 4 CS in their last 5 games, all are reasonably priced too - AWB in particular was in a pretty explosive patch of form The effect of Bruno on that team has been close to transformative - his ability to retain the ball is excellent, takes so much pressure off the back line, and McTominay’s return has helped a fair bit as well. Your namesake is still a bit of a weak link, particularly under the high ball, but there’s definitely a very visible uptick in defensive output there, with nice upcoming fixtures to boot I’ve slow wildcarded to Salah, but now having second thoughts on whether… » Read

  10. Alli and Kane haul as Spurs overtake Liverpool for goals scored in Virtual FPL 19 days, 9 hours ago

    Yep - good call to limit it to three "opportunities" as well to try limit the stoppage time Means managers still need to be careful about when they use that all important third "opportunity" in case players get injured afterwards Pep will love this more than anyone I'd imagine, the manically tinkering rascal that he is » Read

  11. Lampard v Aguero: Cast your final vote on the greatest Fantasy asset of all time 20 days, 11 hours ago

    Conditionally (On the assumption that they follow that statement and end up having all FPL teams scoring zero points in GW38) it means we're in binary outcome territory: Outcome #1. Extra Gameweeks added Outcome #2. FPL Season finishes with the closure of GW38 (regardless of whether or not games go ahead) i.e. - Any form of "Mega" GW looks extremely unlikely based on what FPL communicated above, and assuming what they communicated transpires to be reality Obviously if they decide to contradict their statement, then scoring points in GW38 does become a possibility again » Read

  12. Lampard v Aguero: Cast your final vote on the greatest Fantasy asset of all time 20 days, 14 hours ago

    I wonder what's the punishment if they do celebrate together - yellow cards en masse maybe... Imagine the scenes 6 players sent off celebrating a 90th minute winner » Read

  14. Rashford re-entering the FPL forward radar as return from injury draws near 20 days, 15 hours ago

    Salah away 5.1 PPA (62 points, 12 apps) Salah home 8.9 PPA (124 points, 14 apps) Salah with no Mané 11.6 PPA (58 points, 5 apps) Mane is presumably going to play Liverpool have 4 home fixtures remaining It wouldn’t be surprising to see Salah underwhelm in his remaining 9 games But then it also wouldn’t be surprising to see him get 100 points in those 9 games either But there does seem to be vague order of effectiveness for Salah in FPL: Salah with no Mane > Salah with Mane (home) > Salah with Mane (away) » Read

  16. How the best FPL managers in our Live Hall of Fame are set up for the season run-in 21 days, 7 hours ago

    That first BCD Bundesliga match is going to have the largest TV audience for any sporting event in history isn't it Will be fantastic to have a bit of the old fuseball back on t'interbox » Read

  17. Scoutcast Episode 328 – FPL and Mental Health 21 days, 8 hours ago

    Don't think we'll ever have the luxury of cut & dry information for another while yet unfortunately which is why BB38 *should* be a non-runner, rather than BB38 *is a definite* non-runner But FPL did state in this article that for everyone GW38 will be a zero-pointer: https://www.premierleague.com/news/1646851 - so the logical interpretation is that Mega-GW38 is ruled out here (*unless *they go back on their word that GW38 will be zero points for everyone) Mega-GW39 is a possibility of course, but by definition that means they do have the ability to add extra gameweek/s, so why stop at one extra gameweek... So basically the possibilities look like being: 1. Extra Gameweeks added (if games actually go ahead in the real world) 2. FPL Season finishes with the closure of GW38 (regardless of whether or not games go ahead in the real world) i.e. - Any form of "Mega" GW looks extremely unlikely based on what FPL communicated above » Read

  19. Scoutcast Episode 328 – FPL and Mental Health 21 days, 11 hours ago

    See above - BB38 should be a non-runner as GW38 will be zero points for everyone You'd need a Mega-GW39 announcement to engage BB - but if they can do a GW39 then they have the ability to add extra GW's which again lessens the likelihood of a Mega-GW (i.e. why stop at one extra GW) » Read

  20. Scoutcast Episode 328 – FPL and Mental Health 21 days, 11 hours ago

    Remember FPL have already announced that there will be no Mega-GW38 - i.e. they've said GW38 is a zero pointer for everyone » Read
