Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. \\\"Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.\\\" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2gJamguN04

    Are you considering GW33 as well?This week only I might slightly favour Arnie given the latest team news.He was out of favour and then ill + out of favour, but the thinking is, based on comments from this manager, that he will start today. » Read

    30% of top 10k on FH I reckon?22% already played, and I would imagine a lot will play next week and some will play at another time.For those on a hit or two I agree I think a green arrow will be hard. » Read

    I was just thinking that in week where Salah is the overwhelming captain pick, with an EO over 170% perhaps, he then becomes not much more than a penknife if captained. » Read

    I get that Salah and Aguero were the Shield Captain choices last GW.But look at Aguero, he had near 100% EO in the top 10,000 after captaincy. If you owned him and didn't captain him, he was a perfect shield, whatever he did, your rank doesn't move.If you captain him you've now got him at 200% and you've turned him into a sword: he does well, you get green arrows.Perhaps Salah at 129% ownership is more of a small sword if captained, Sterling a Claymore.Obviously if Sterling doesn't do anything, perhaps the Claymore is too big and he accidentally chops off a limb, it only truly hurts if a shield option you don't own, with an EO great than 100%, delivers. If you owned Sterling and Aguero, making Sterling captain was pretty risk free because whatever Aguero did it wouldn't hurt you. Salah at 129% would hurt a bit if you owned him too.Anyway, with apologies to Monty Python, can we call this a draw? » Read

    This is obviously getting into semantics but: "you asked whether captaining the most popular choice would make him a Sword Captain" - I didn't, I asked if it would make him a sword.I get that the terms "Sword Captain" and "Shield Captain" have their own meanings. However I still maintain that there is nothing wrong with what I asked - If a shield is captained does he get turned into a sword?Yes he can - not always - but last week Aguero and Salah became swords by being captained. Their ownership last weekend was 40.3% and 45.1% respectively, in the top 10,000 that goes up to 61.7% and 84.6%. If you don't own those players and they do well, your rank will suffer. Factor in captaincy, which in the top 10,000 took their EO to 99.7% and 129%, and it makes not owning them even worse - in the case of Salah if you own him but haven't captained him, then you want him not to score because you will get a red arrow.However, if you've captained him then he is a sword because you own 200%… » Read

    Hi RL,Good points. In my Gameweek article when I asked the question would making a shield player your captain turn him into a sword, I wasn't trying to be definitive with the answer. It depends on the situation, as you point out.For instance last weekend Salah was a shield but for those who captained him he became a sword. But perhaps only a little sword - a dagger captain perhaps? πŸ™‚It's not always the case obviously; if everybody captained the same shield, the player is still a shield. However in the context of a split captaincy vote, such as last gw, I thought this was a question worth asking.Last gw if you owned Salah and didn't captain him it would harm your rank if he scored (admittedly not as much as if you didn't own him at all), but if you captained him you wanted him to score as that would mean a rank increase.Yes completely agree that captaining Sterling was bigger sword captain choice. In terms of risk/reward it was a bolder choice.I get your point that com… » Read
