  1. The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Double Gameweek 22 4 days, 2 hours ago

    Not sure, I think I've got 3-4 followers from NZ, but it may not be enough so far. I don't see any recent hits for the hashtag #FPLNZ. » Read

  2. The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Double Gameweek 22 4 days, 2 hours ago

    I just wanted to let everyone know that we're organising some initiatives to connect people for some of the countries that are well represented on the DZ here. FPL Blackwolf has (re)started #FPLUSA: https://twitter.com/FPL_BlackWolf/status/1481123331394863107 The thread also includes discussion of #FPLCAN and #FPLAUS (I think Aus may already have some kind of meet-up planned). » Read

    He hasn't got me a single point though, what a troll! Always finds a way to go missing precisely when I need him. » Read

    Only Norwich. If you don't count Brownhill, then Burnley too. » Read

    None, I would FH 11 DGWers. » Read

    No, they'll just FH him out in 22 and then bench in 23, and then he might be back already. » Read

  9. FPL Double Gameweek 21 round-up: Sunday review, injury news and the things we learned 14 days, 2 hours ago

    No one will see all their risks pay off, even for one good season. Magnus Carlsen had a 7.8m GW rank last GW. He still has a better chance of winning FPL playing the variance game, compared to people who don't. » Read

  10. FPL Double Gameweek 21 round-up: Sunday review, injury news and the things we learned 14 days, 2 hours ago

    If you believe participating in it improves your overall game, then it's a good thing to be in. If you don't, then don't participate. » Read

  11. FPL Double Gameweek 21 round-up: Sunday review, injury news and the things we learned 14 days, 2 hours ago

    Yes, it's not for me, but lots of people like it because it imposes discipline on them and prevents them from taking too many hits. » Read

  13. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 2 hours ago

    Ederson became the top scoring GK, which is all that matters to many casuals. Although some Analytics FC people on Twitter seem to love him too. I haven't figured out why. » Read

  14. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    I think it's because they have only NEW and bur to reschedule, and neither those teams nor Everton are in Europe. So far the league seems in no rush to reschedule such fixtures, otherwise we likely would have got fixtures like AVL-BUR and WAT-CRY in GW21. » Read

  15. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    Yeah, I'll play Sanchez if he has a double and Ramsdale doesn't, but I wouldn't be bringing their defenders in. » Read

  16. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    I'm looking at having 10 DGW starters if there are doubles for Liverpool, United, Spurs, Leicester, Watford, and Brighton/Arsenal (GK). Man City and West Ham are the only ones who definitely won't. » Read

  17. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    Possibly 24 also if Egypt reach the final. » Read

  18. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    Seeing he's already been red flagged, probably just one drop to 12.8. Possibly more if he blanks vs Chelsea. » Read

  19. Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis exit 15 days, 3 hours ago

    Yeah, see if it's a beat-up Brentford that gets added. If it's Brighton then I'd say not. » Read

    To a large extent Mendy was bailing them out. Then he started making a more typical amount of mistakes. » Read
