    That Broja guy is really talented. 5m for him could be a great value. » Read

    Then maybe there's no point in owning him. The way I see it is: just captain the player who you think will get most points. Lukaku's ownership probably won't be that much higher than Salah's after all so not that big risk. » Read

  6. FPL Gameweek 8 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned 3 days, 10 hours ago

    Looks like a moment when perma cap strategy could actually be viable. Salah's on a way for another 300 pts season. » Read

    So how the situation with Raphinha looks like? Any chance he features in the next game? » Read

    Luis Campos as a sporting director at Newcastle would be the best transfer they could possibly do. Really hope they will make smart transfers rather than splashing the cash right and left. » Read

    Pick 2 from Dias, Azpilicueta and Rudiger. Thoughts? » Read

    Too bad KDB's good fixtures overlap with Salah's ones. Would be an interesting alternative to Lukaku » Read

  13. How did Fabio Borges become arguably the best ever FPL manager? 9 days, 4 hours ago

    I had a second thought and maybe xG delta isn't that bad when it comes to slight corrections to the model, but on the other hand I think that measures based on xGOT would be better at explaining finishing skill. » Read

    Thanks. Too bad. Thought maybe such a feature was added - it would be very helpful. » Read

  15. How did Fabio Borges become arguably the best ever FPL manager? 9 days, 23 hours ago

    I think FFS gets xA from Opta and the calculation is a bit more complicated, for example xA is credited even if there was no shot as a result, so it doesn't always lead to another player's xG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAAVmbzTwH0 Yes, agree, I was also thinking about it. It would be interesting to see how much on average a player is improving/regressing with every year, when is the peak on average (that's already calculated though, isn't it). So far I was only assessing players subjectively on individual basis but more quantitative approach would probably be better. » Read

  17. How did Fabio Borges become arguably the best ever FPL manager? 11 days, 34 mins ago

    Interesting article. I wouldn't look at the xA delta though, as it is totally independent of the player. As long as I think it is good to look at past xG stats of a player to assess whether recent results aren't a result of a variance, I'm not sure xG delta can be trusted as an assessment of player's finishing ability. It just involves too much randomness to be conclusive whether it was lack/bad lack or not imho. And you would also need a big enough sample size. Looking at how much variance there is in a seasonal basis xG delta for individual players I would say that it's randomness more than anything and the notion that good finishers will overperform xG and vice versa is just a myth. For example Lewandowski underperformed by 11.14 xG (!) in 18/19 only to overperform by 8.9 xG in 20/21. 22 goals vs 41 goals from almost exact same xG. But that's just my opinion, I would be happy to hear some contradictory arguments, though. Maybe it would be better to look at the difference between … » Read

    I would be careful 🙂 » Read

  19. Which FPL players are on penalties and set-piece duties at their clubs? 12 days, 12 hours ago

    Ekhm, Grealish played 60+ minutes in every game so far. Around 80 per game on average. KDB also played almost every minute when he was fit in the last 2 seasons, but maybe Pep finally realized that maybe thats why he's injured every now and then. And he's not so young anymore so I would be curious with him in fpl. » Read

  20. Is it time to sell Manchester United players in FPL? 16 days, 2 hours ago

    True, that was my concern too. Already this week his ownership was very high, so us non-owners got a bit lucky with that blank. » Read
