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.

    And Aston Villa in GW26. I'm with you on this. Who would you be selling to get him in? » Read

    Brave move! I like it. Yes I could bring in one for a hit, very tempted. Would love to have Son for Norwich next week as well. Currently have the armband on Abraham. It could change... » Read

    Good read. You've highlighted a number of players I'm considering - Pukki, Maupay and Son! I would love them all, maybe I should WC.... » Read

  6. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 22 2 days, 21 hours ago

    That's a very good point - Christmas is so hectic, and so unique in the calendar with player rotation, it must be hard to find time to make decisions about a WC. I wonder if I will ever be patient enough to find out! » Read

  7. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 22 2 days, 23 hours ago

    Good notes. I presume they didn't play their WC until quite late because their teams were successful, a case of success breeds success. Although perhaps, for the rest of us, our threshold of what constitutes major surgery should be revised - I'm wondering if my team was really as bad as all that in GW2! » Read

  8. One statistic to rule them all 3 days, 2 hours ago

    Great stuff AK, Couple of thoughts, first on the subjectivity of Big Chances, quote from Michael Caley: "I think Opta coders do amazing work, and I know that their decisions are always double-checked as well. But it's hard for me to believe that there would be zero outcome bias, that a shot being scored wouldn't make the preceding chance look bigger." On Big Chances being incorporated into Opta xG models, quote from Mike Goodman: "Recognizing that nothing in the data set will distinguish particularly good chances from similar looking but mediocre ones, data collection leaned on creating a label that let everybody know “HEY! LOOK OVER HERE! THIS CHANCE WAS REALLY GOOD!” Tautologically, knowing that a chance was good helps xG models determine if a chance was good." So essentially Big Chances have an element of subjectivity and are used to improve xG models. So you'd expect them to correlate reasonably well to goals: "knowing that a chance was good helps xG models determine i… » Read

    Cheers TM, good news about the LMS entries, hopefully a few more before today's deadline. » Read

  10. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 21 9 days, 22 hours ago

    Definitely! I've just checked and you're the 17th highest ranked manager out of 5,983 in the H2H Leagues! Hope you make promotion and well done on a great season so far. » Read

  11. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 21 9 days, 22 hours ago

    Narrow defeats and big victories makes sense. That's a good point about the chips and would certainly make a difference. Must just be luck. Hopefully things will improve for you in the second half of the season! And yes I've had a couple of close calls in the LMS too! Good to have got this far 🙂 » Read

    I'm trying to think of reasons why this happens, apart from the luck of the draw. Using FPL Statistico www.anewpla.net it's easy to see that Harry had quite a slow/average start to the season so probably didn't pick up many points then. And his last two GW ranks have been 26,310 and 4,219,760 so not much consistency. Is there anything you notice about your GW ranks? Have you had a few exceptional GWs which would boost your points total? » Read

  13. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 21 9 days, 23 hours ago

    That is unlucky! I might take another look at the luckiest/unluckiest managers next week. In League 1, Harry Vernon has the third best FPL rank after Craig and Ben yet finds himself in 16th place. I'd imagine there are a few in similar situations. » Read

    That makes sense, I was surprised at the sudden change! Well done The Keane Fifteen! » Read

    I got it right in the article at least! Yes still a low number » Read

  16. FFS Mini-Leagues & Community Competitions Gameweek 20 18 days, 18 hours ago

    Yes, none of the "best" 620 managers are in the top 10,000. I hope the second half of the season is kinder! » Read

  17. The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 20 22 days, 1 hour ago

    Ahead of Gameweek 20, the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league was sitting proudly atop the Best Leagues in FPL! The leader of our mini-league, Theodor Eek-Bakke, has risen to fifth overall and has a three-point lead over Gary Tokatlian. Gary moved up to second place after captaining Martial for a 97-point Gameweek. Theodor is now first in Norway overtaking World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen, who has totalled just 65 points over Gameweeks 18 and 19. Steve Hall is the new number one in our FFS Members mini-league, one point ahead of previous leader Martin Dixon. Steve is 190th overall. This is his tenth FPL season and he has had three top 10,000 finishes, the best of which was 4,536th in 2016/17. However Martin Dixon does still lead RedLightning's Top 10k Any Season mini-league. Martin is 214th overall. In Gameweek 19 he extended his lead over Rok Krasna to 11 points. A full round-up article will appear after Gameweek 20. Good luck to everyone this weekend! » Read

    I prefer B. You can switch Kane to Vardy in the New Year. I fancy him to miss GW20 and I don't think Kane will. But I would rebalance you midfield and defence. Try to Salah instead of Mane (personal preference). » Read
