  1. How Chelsea are shaping up under Lampard in pre-season 1 day, 19 hours ago

    I think 6.0m for mount. If grealish, who played in the same league as him last year and performed similarly, costs 6.5m then surely mount playing for a Chelsea side is going to come in around the same price?Fpl towers seem to have done away with the cheap midfield bargain this season! » Read

  2. Coverage of pre-season matches commences 11 days, 14 hours ago

    No worries, appreciate the response from you and all the mods so swiftly! Yeah I think it would just aid clarity, especially once the actual GW1 has occurred and there will be 2 lots of minutes with the same "GW1" code on the sheet potentially. » Read

    That's great to hear, thanks Neale! » Read

    Cheers. Ah ok cool, thanks for explaining 🙂 Shame it didn't work, it sounded like they covered some interesting topics it would be useful to get their insight on. Hopefully a rerecord happens or the content can be included into another video. » Read

    Cheers TM 🙂 No its not on there, if you click on it you just get a black screen saying the video was removed or doesn't exist. » Read

    Couple of comments from me that hopefully the mods can address:1. In the article above, its a positive development to see those sheets embedded, I think they will be very useful. However, I believe it is incorrect to use "GW1" as the code for the first pre season friendly, as its easy for this to be confused with the actual GW1 in early august. Could you use "P1" or "PS1" as the code for pre season friendlies? With perhaps "CS" & "SC" for the community shield and super cup respectively?2. The video from yesterday lunchtime which David and Joe produced is not accessible/not working on youtube. I think Joe needs to re-upload it or convert it into a different file type and publish it on the website here instead. » Read

  7. FPL position change and Leicester move boost Perez's appeal 16 days, 16 hours ago

    Haha you guess correctly! Kane seems to be going backwards, both as an FPL asset and on the pitch, he seems to prefer playing as a no. 10 to a no. 9 these days. Yeah I like KDB, he is still incredibly good at creating chances, even in his limited minutes he was creating far more big chances per 90 minutes than anyone else in the league. If he can become a legitimate City captaincy option available at 9.5m as opposed to the 12m of Sterling and Aguero then he becomes essential. If he isn't a captaincy option though then he's overpriced as the likes of Robertson, TAA, VVD, LaPorte and a bunch of the 6.5-8.0m mids could all reach 180 points for less money. I'm planning to start the season with Sterling and then if KDB proves himself as captaincy material then I'll likely downgrade sterling to him and use the funds elsewhere. KDB requires close monitoring over pre season to see how fit and in form he is too. » Read

  8. FPL position change and Leicester move boost Perez's appeal 16 days, 17 hours ago

    130 for Kane 180 for KDBReason being is I suspect Kane will get injured again more than once - glass ankles and always bought back too early from injury. KDB I think will be more resilient this season with a full pre season behind him, but I still expect at least 1 injury, he injured several parts of himself last season and at 28 is getting to the age where these will become more frequent I fear. » Read

    The 3 promoted teams to go straight back down unfortunately. Norwich defence looks ropey, Sheffield United are old and slow at the back, and don't have a useful striker, not a good combo. Villa are built entirely on loanees, most of whom won't return. Brighton will be better under Potter, certainly more attacking anyway and will better suit their recent and new signings. Newcastle won't score without Rondon but should have enough of the Benitez DNA in defence still to keep teams out and stay up. The rest of the premier league will be nowhere near relegation. » Read

    5 vs 6 is no significant difference. Cheers for the link though, that is interesting and I wasn't aware of the trend having gone on over several seasons.I still don't think they're doing much wrong at home though, if they weren't creating anything at all then I would buy into the theory that they struggle to break teams down at home, but they're frequently creating plenty of excellent chances and its simply finishing which is costing them. I certainly think they need a new, more clinical centre forward though. » Read

    I don't think so, no. Its not like they're generating 100 * 0.01 xG chances at home and 10 * 0.1 xG chances away. I think you're looking for an explanation that isn't there. There was no split on pens home or away either. » Read

    Not really, as in away games they outperformed their expected goals by 9.64, almost exactly the amount they underperformed by at home! There is no reason why they would shoot badly at home and brilliantly away, its just a statistical quirk and an example of variance in my opinion and will return to much more normal levels next season. » Read

    Great signing. There's no way he stays there for 12 years though! » Read

    home xg was 28.29, good enough for 10th best in the league. Actual goals were 19, a difference of 9.29, the largest discrepancy in the league in this stat. Therefore they were just unlucky/awful at finishing. Don't expect this tend to continue at all. » Read
