  1. Jimenez starts but Traore benched as Santo reverts to a 3-5-2 for Norwich clash 4 days, 10 hours ago

    Wow. Can we all just take a moment to recognize AVFC82's genius this week in "Spot the Differential"? The differentials this week: https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/02/21/long-can-form-fpl-double-up-with-ings-for-kind-saints-fixtures/ - Shane Long (9 points) - Bruno Fernandes (14 points) - Dwight McNeil (14 points) That's some serious crystal ball gazing right there. Guess I know who I'm going to start listening to... » Read

  2. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    I've already got Traore (had him from early, my one good move), and been thinking about defenders from either of those you mentioned. And, yeah, the three you've chosen are solid ones to be dumping (although, personally, Rico is close as well)... Anyway, thanks for the insight! » Read

  3. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    Rico, Sidibe, B.Williams, Lundstram (maybe), Ward-Prowse (maybe), Saint-Maximin (took a gamble), Vardy... Yeah, so about 7 of my 15 or so. ; ) And my entire defense, minus TAA... » Read

  4. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    And that's something that's stopping me as well. My last two weeks were solid...but I also dodge some massive bullets by sheer dumb luck (not captaining/triple captaining Mane, etc.). So it's almost as if things are worse than they seem from the last couple of weeks. » Read

  5. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    Problem is, my instinct is garbage (not just for FPL, but for life in general). If I was alive 10,000 years ago or so, I would have been toast. » Read

  6. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    Yeah, about at that point now (5 or 6)... » Read

  7. Introducing the €100,000 Champions League Knockout Freeze Tournament 10 days, 7 hours ago

    And that's what's got me in a quandary. The question is how much I stand to lose in lost points by not making the switch now versus how much I might lose in the future if I do make it now. And maybe the best answer is to take a relatively justifiable hit for -4 (which I nearly always avoid) to get rid of the worst deadweight... » Read

    So, kind of an odd question, but how do you all know when you need to/want to wildcard? I mean, at what point are you like, "Yep. It's time." My team is a mess, but with upcoming blanks and doubles, I'm not certain it's enough of a mess to wildcard at this moment. So...again, when do you all know it's time to pull the trigger? » Read

  9. Holgate and Sidibe benched as Everton face Palace in Gameweek 26 opener 19 days, 11 hours ago

    Well, got punished for selling DCL. Seemed to make sense to sell him for Firmino, but looks like I made a poor choice... » Read

  10. Premium midfielders with appealing matches headline Gameweek 26 Scout Picks 20 days, 6 hours ago

    That's another transfer that seems to make sense to me. Hope it works out! » Read

  11. Premium midfielders with appealing matches headline Gameweek 26 Scout Picks 20 days, 6 hours ago

    Nothing like selling a player that then appears in the Scout Picks. I did DCL to Firmino, which seemed to make sense based on form and fixtures...but maybe not? » Read

  12. Tricky fixtures limit appeal of Everton and Watford assets after five-goal epic 25 days, 5 hours ago

    It is crazy to think how much dumb stupid luck plays into this stupid game. I decided at the last minute before GW 24 to go with Salah instead of Van Dijk for the Liverpool triple. And since I bought Salah, I thought "well, I'll captain him" and switched the armband from...Mane. Then I figured, "hey, might as well keep it on him this week." I have absolutely no business having two green arrows in a row without owning KDB, Aguero, and a host of the other usual suspects (Grealish, etc.). It's just dumb luck... » Read

  13. Tricky fixtures limit appeal of Everton and Watford assets after five-goal epic 25 days, 5 hours ago

    65 here, all nothing but stupid luck, with Salah (C), DHenderson, and TAA the only ones getting more than 3 points (48 total). » Read

  14. Gameweek 25 Scout Picks built on premium forwards 27 days, 7 hours ago

    Sorry. No real idea there. My first thought, though, is "no" on ASM/Almiron playing up front, though. Don't think that either of them are really suited to play in that spot. » Read

  15. Gameweek 25 Scout Picks built on premium forwards 27 days, 7 hours ago

    Rogue transfer of the week: Mane for Saint-Maximin. Nice fixtures and for some reason I love the idea of having a fantasy squad with Traore on one side and Saint-Maximin on the other... » Read

  16. What the EFL Cup final means for FPL teams in Blank Gameweek 28 28 days, 7 hours ago

    Just watched some highlights of Berge and, while I'm working off a very small sample size, there's something about his play that reminds me of Yaya Toure. Lot of similarities in ball control, running with the ball, etc. (Yeah, nothing fantasy-related about this post, just a casual observation...) » Read
