  1. Scoutcast Episode 309 - When FPL patience turns to stubbornness 18 days, 15 hours ago

    Guita, PVA and Zaha from Crystal Palace offer set and forget options for this period. I'm not saying get all of them but one or two fitting in to your squad should last as long as their good fixtures last. » Read

  2. The dangers of taking hits to chase points in FPL 18 days, 17 hours ago

    I'd probably play Jimenez over Lundstram or McGinn but it's a close one of those two which I'd drop. » Read

  3. The dangers of taking hits to chase points in FPL 18 days, 17 hours ago

    I'd put Pulisic, Mane, Abraham and Vardy (in that order) as captain before Salah. I think he'll be a fine choice as captain, there are just others who are better this week. » Read

  4. The dangers of taking hits to chase points in FPL 18 days, 17 hours ago

    I would probably just go with Tomori as I'm not sure the defensive returns on Lundstram will be great this week but it's very close. » Read

    Does anyone know when the draw for the FFS Cup will be made? Thanks 🙂 » Read

  6. Grealish back on the FPL radar after eye-catching return from injury 19 days, 18 hours ago

    Pretty much smooth for me in the last few weeks. 75 points this week after 84 last week and 75 the week before bringing me to 163k from 883k three weeks ago. That's Vardy in for Wilson for GW11 (24 point gain) Mane, Maddison and Jimenez in for Sterling, Cantwell and Aguero GW 12 (25 point gain - 8 point hit) Robertson in for Tomori GW13 (5 point gain) Not counting captain choices (I'd be even better off), that's a net 46 point swing in my favour so far. The lesson I'm taking is to be more aggressive with my transfers. Not necessarily taking hits but getting in players I want for the next few fixtures rather than worrying about replacing the odd player who isn't performing. If I have a duffer on my bench, he's not really costing me much but if I transfer them out then I'm not using the transfer on getting in the next form/fixtures best picks! » Read

  7. Jimenez involved for Mexico as the international break comes to a close 23 days, 17 hours ago

    I always understood new manager bounce to be a case of regression to the mean. In other words a team is underperforming against expectations (for whatever reason, including poor management) and when the new manager comes in they more often than not perform in the expected range again, which happens to be much better than what they were doing. Nothing in this article that suggests otherwise bit that doesn't mean that Spurs assets won't be a good investment soon. » Read

  8. Vote in the Gameweek 13 FPL captain poll 26 days, 18 hours ago

    Having Derby County fans in the family, (I know, as a Forest fan), I'm very aware of how goo Tomori is and how much of a favourite of Lampard he is. I'm not concerned about him being dropped even if/when Rudiger is fit. However, Chelsea have been good recently at the back (if not the best of all teams) after a slightly shaky start to the season. Which stats win out - season or recent? Of course, Leicester have been good all season and longer under Rogers... » Read

  9. Vote in the Gameweek 13 FPL captain poll 26 days, 18 hours ago

    I don't mind benching headaches, especially at that price for players, I would even bench a mid/forward if that was a better choice! Tomori against City this week is easy to not play him but after that they are fairly equal in team and personal projections. Whichever way I go, it will be the wrong way! » Read

  10. Vote in the Gameweek 13 FPL captain poll 26 days, 19 hours ago

    Thoughts on who to transfer out for Robertson: Tomori or Soyuncu? I have a defence of TAA, Tomori, Soyuncu, Lundstrom and Rico. I could transfer out Rico instead but that would leave nothing in the bank potentially for Mount to Pulisic and same goes for Lundstrom (although I don't want to get rid of him). Both Tomori and Soyuncu have a sale price of 4.7 and I would be happy to change again around GW18 when Liverpool have their blank. Appreciate any ideas. » Read
