FPL Side Net

The Scout Academy 4

With over a decade of experience, top 10K finishes (2019/20) and two very contrasting FPL managerial styles, the weekly podcast focuses on the big topics of the week, reviews from the guys teams, transfers, captain picks and a lot of laughs.

FPL Rabbi

Ever since his debut season in 2016/17, FPL Rabbi has partially succeeded in not overthinking FPL. As a Shabbat-observing Jew he treats every weekend deadline as a Friday deadline, and he has managed three consecutive 0.5% finishes.

His Twitter page, in three languages (English, Hebrew & Spanish), documents his FPL season; from being helplessly addicted to a differential attacking-fullback option to taking too many hits.

FPL Rabbi is also part of the FPL podcast Doubtful – 75%⚠️ (מופיעים בספק) which is available on YouTube and across all audio platforms. In this first of a kind video podcast recorded in Hebrew, the Rabbi, alongside Omer and Avihay, look back at their FPL Gameweeks and talk through their plans.
