Contrarian stock market investor (which might creep into my FPL thinking a bit too much at times). Resisting groupthink. Overcoming cognitive biases to make more rational decisions.

  1. Learning from the Great and the Good 20/21 - Gameweek 22 23 days, 4 mins ago

    The bench points data are interesting, and encouraging for me! I've got 49 auto-sub points and benched 101. On paper, that's the same number of points benched as Joe, but more of mine are appearance points only. I've benched only 2 goals, 1 assist, and 4 clean sheets (2 of which were unavoidable, as both my goalkeepers kept CS those weeks, and starting 2 GKs is not allowed). Whereas Joe's benched 4 goals, 2 assists, and 6 clean sheets (none of which were from GKs). On the other hand, captaincy, there's the killer for me... » Read

  2. How an early Wildcard helped me into the top 1k - and what I have learned 23 days, 14 hours ago

    Before the Brighton game, the conventional wisdom was that Salah scores more points without Mane. » Read

    Spurs 20th in the league in xG last 4 GW. Is that good? » Read

    They hate watching Burnley games. » Read

    You're right. My brain is not working tonight. Long week. » Read

    Don't get why people are so eager to sell/bench Dallas. GTG » Read

    Interesting how a lot of WC planning seems to hinge on the MUN-WHU cup game. If West Ham win, they just have a SGW in 26 against mci. Many managers have triple West Ham, and it would be good to WC their players out before 26, especially if playing BB26. If they lose, then DGW against mci+ARS is tolerable, if not great. Easier to save WC until GW30 if desired. » Read

  8. Double Gameweeks 24 and 25 confirmed as rescheduled fixtures are announced 23 days, 21 hours ago

    Same as you. Leeds & Saints DGW: yawn. Top teams DGW: Now we're talking. » Read

  9. Which teams are waiting for confirmation of future FPL Double Gameweeks? 25 days, 3 hours ago

    The benefit of saving it for later would be to capitalise on all the short-term DGWs of teams like City, then use WC to reduce your investment in those teams before they have fewer/no doubles and some blanks in the last part of the season, and also reduce spending on the bench. » Read

  10. Which teams are waiting for confirmation of future FPL Double Gameweeks? 25 days, 3 hours ago

    Correct, as long as you plan to WC before 26, then no point of planning long-term. You could certainly make a case for saving WC until 30 (Crellin seems to be doing that). I'm still on the fence about this. » Read

  11. Salah the most powerful FPL asset inside top 10k for Gameweek 22 25 days, 14 hours ago

    I am keeping for now. If I need to, might switch to Azpi who seems nailed. Looks like Chilwell and Alonso could split time at LB/LWB. » Read

  12. The FPL Round-up: Bruno's latest blank, Pereira's form and Mitchell's benching 27 days, 14 hours ago

    Not that many own Sterling, and those who do are probably quite devoted to him as an FPL asset. » Read

  13. The FPL Round-up: Bruno's latest blank, Pereira's form and Mitchell's benching 27 days, 14 hours ago

    Possibly, but City are likely to have DGW in 24, 26, and 27 which offsets much of the fixture difficulty. » Read

  14. The FPL Round-up: Bruno's latest blank, Pereira's form and Mitchell's benching 27 days, 14 hours ago

    Agreed, I prefer Azpi who has played 90 in both games. » Read

  15. The FPL Round-up: Bruno's latest blank, Pereira's form and Mitchell's benching 27 days, 14 hours ago

    Sorry, that's in 26. In 24 it would probably be only 2 (MCI vs either eve or SOU would be the extra fixture). » Read

  16. The FPL Round-up: Bruno's latest blank, Pereira's form and Mitchell's benching 27 days, 14 hours ago

    Probably about 12, see https://twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1355384214552784896 (yellow teams are the most likely) » Read

    It would seem like they have to. Lots of games to be made up, not many slots to make them up in. » Read

    He's still got the 8th most points among defenders, for a much cheaper price than Liverpool/City/Chelsea defenders. Still a real thorn in my side. » Read
