OMG, I wish I hadn't seen this
I didn't play Hennessey, preferring Butland NOR(H)
but I have benched Koscielny (LIV(A)), to double Dann with Ward!

8 CS pts lost on that howler, not counting the eventual bonuseses

and not counting that I might find myself with a non-playing GK for the next fixtures...

GW23 UPDATE



Liverpool won on penalties and it's the first team in LC Final
This means Everton will have a blank GW27 too, regardless the outcome tonite, as Toffees would have played their GW27 match @Anfield anyway

Should City overturn the first leg result and qualify for the final,
we'll have 4 teams blanking GW27, including Newcastle
Otherwise they'd be just the two, Liverpool and Everton

As for the DGW, hopefully it will be announced tomorrow whether either or both matches (if any) will be rescheduled bringing it fwd to GW25,
or if PL wil just postpone them, in which case the first candi-date it's as late as GW34
(and then GW35 it will be another blank GW due to FA Cup SF)

and some trend reversal

I forgot the deadline time while tinkering.. - Koscielny left on bench - 5p wasted
used my 2d FT to swap Mahrez with Firmino 1 gw too early - 4p wasted (and the FT)

I scored under average this GW, 10-20-30p less than other CG teams
of course most of you had 13p less till 88' of teh last match!

best GW score by Debaser, inside gw top 250k
this allowed him to extend the lead over Walrus to 24p

Walrus, novacane and EiF, got a score just above gw average,
whereas Funko (and myself) scored above top10k gw average, along surprisingly Beta1 (who's alas a dead team, as are Fist & Bas too)

the chasing 3 are now closer together (21p) than the leader gap ahead Walrus

Debaser, climbing the ranking in "spurts", is now in top330 k, compare it with his last season when after GW1 he never got back in top 1M
his current rank was only bested this season in CG League by novacane for a short stint in GW8-12
noavacane's last season was slow, but steadily growing, ending just short of 700k
this one started in a very proimising way, than had a precipitous 7 gw fall
he was showing signs of a comeback, catching Funko 2 gw ago, but then slipped back again outside 1M

At the same time last season, after GW25:
Funko was still in top 200k
EiF kept running-up alone around 350k
the follwing five, from 3rd to 7th, were tighly grouped
with Walrus, Fist and me around 700k, who would have then rushed up to top CG in the end
and novacane and Beta inseite 900k, who'd have tho stalled and switched places till the end,
novacane marginally improving as I said above, while Beta slipped outsied 1M even behind Debaser

I'm doing better than expected as I havnt actually logged in since about week 2. Am I reading that graph right or was I actually in first place in one of the game weeks? Or is that showing game week score? Even so that's suprising!

Hi Beta1 nice to see you visiting

yes, you led our league on GW7, with 318p, rank 450k
you profited most of Sanchez 20p by Captaining him

the following GW8 you doubled Sanchez 16p again, but the lack of Aguero made you fall to rank 540k

most of FPL teams benefited in GW8 of Kun 25p, many captained him for 50p
novacane was 2nd in GW7, 3p behind you with a 520k rank, but then skyrocketed to 174k the following GW

I overtook you for 6th place on GW12, you kept 7th place since, slipping to 8th only once and marginally in GW18
you're the best of CG 3 dead teams this season

Sanchez is 4 GWs back now, and soon expected another haul!

so far FPL have only taken out fixtures from upcoming GW27, and from GW30
they have not announced any date for the fixtures to be rescheduled, nor did PL yet afaik

a thread on FISO is dedicated to monitor the situation
http://www.fiso.co.uk/forum/viewtopi...9589&start=480
many english guys there much more on it than me, I only summarise with tables

the link I had posted above provides all details too

someone said a domestic match might even clash with a CL/EL match, as long as the domestic one is NOT televised (.....???)
someone is fabling about Triple Gameweeks...

I wonder what are they waiting for to announce it tho, there must be a minimum police notice advance I figure
they can't be waiting for the Hull v Arsenal replay, which takes place on March 7th

It's amazing to me how many people haven't saved things like wildcard and bench boost for the double gameweeks.

yes indeed, especially amongst Top 10k teams too!

see also me discussing it on fiso:

I do think that's a fairly good indication of poor decision making from anyone ranked highly who hasn't got the most out of their chips or played them on a whim (AOA aside, perhaps).
perfectly put, thanks MPT

what I wanted to object to Finisher was indeed that I agree a DGW would be a better use of the chips, especially BB
but the 60% of the top teams who used it already, if not in the Top10k would be in the Top 20k,

so we're talking about a supposed/likely mistake made not by casual players,
but by half the players who had anyway the skill and/or the luck to be in top 1% of the field after 2/3rd of the season

Walrus retook the lead 2 GW ago, or rather,
Debaser slipped behind, and continued last gw too so that I could close the gap for 2nd
I seem to have hit a ceiling at 500k, at least I'm sticking up there

the Pts gaps between the top 4 are now 16p - 5p - 19p

novacane got back in top 1M exactly where he was GW24, but he's still 37p from Funko, almost as much as Funko lags behind Walrus (40p)
EiF had two b2b GW rank in the 3M, and the 5th red arrow, ranking down a slope since gw 22

we might say, we got now 4 and a half in contention in CG league

GW30 has 5 blank matches, with Arsenal needing yesterday replay to score 4 at Hull but now with Mertesacker and Gabriel injured who add to Koscielny missing from their defense...

Hopefully WHICH postponed matches will be rescheduled WHEN, will be soon announced

GW35 will see 3 sure blank matches, probably 4
and we still have the two matches postponed from the LC final
nothing's defined yet, but very likely GW34 will see more doublers than GW37, and it's the first candidate to deploy your WC for those who kept it

OK, decided to exploit a bit the FISO site resources, they allow to attach files full size
(they do show them shrunk too, but you can click them to open them full-size in a separate window, whence I'm linking the img)



as for my progress, compared with last season



pretty much the same pattern!

this season tho we'll have two much heavier DGW, with a blank in-between
they could make all abruptly diverge ...for the worse or the better!

another little gem (OK maybe zircon ) found on fiso
http://fplanalyzer.com/

I was wary at first, but it's actually harmless, and in its simplicity totally worth it

it's not tampering with scripts, the script is in the bookmark in place of the URL
you refresh the page and it goes away

the part where it says it fetches other data to display doesn't work for me
but just being able to look at the pitch with the opponent teams under your players shirts for a future GW is very handy

I thought "so what?" at first, but after trying it out I say it's very useful to check at a glance on the pitch while you tinker which doublers you have in DWG34 and which blankers in GW35, switching at a mouseclick between the two, and which "strong singlers" are worth keeping (both in case you play the WC now, or keep it for DGW37 thus you have limited FTs to bring in more doublers now)

the long chase is over but not the race yet

forgive me if I focus for now on the CG League Title race only,
but there's over 50p down to 3rd place, albeit the 3 teams vying for the last podium step got good scores too

the league standings show I've leapfrogged Walrus Feeder by 27p before last DGW match tonite,
but FPL don't count autosub pts before the whole GW is over,
so that gap will be nearly halved when Walrus will bring in from the bench his Vardy 13p in place of (unexpectedly?) not-playing Coutinho
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=640114299
(25% of Top10k FPL teams started him, and 13.5 of all teams)
Luckily for me, Walrus played Bellerin instead of Moreno

so the "actual" standings should read

1800 MoSe
1786 Walrus

we both have Lukaku Captain, but mine is Triple :/ so he'll count as one for me only

who we play in tonite match:

MoSe : +14p lead +Lukaku +Coleman +Dann +Hennessey
Walrus : "just" +Delaney

barring freak events, it's rather likley that the current lead would extend, even shouldn't my TC gamble pay off

Of course Walrus played his WC this GW, and I presume he did it with DGW34 in mind, rather than this one
Luckily for me, he had already played his BB chip ("wasting" it a bit as he only got extra 5p), so he can't further exploit his 11 DGW34 doublers +Kane +3 Foxes
I expect him to reasonably TC Sanchez next GW, whom I lack atm
I only have 7 GW34 doulbers, I might take one or two hits to bring that number to 9 (and/or upgrading one existing doubler with GW35 in mind too)
But it will be hard for me to afford Sanchez, and sacrificing Kane paid off this GW but could hurt me back for GW35, bringing him back could be hard as well (besides, the predicted price changes are of course going the opposite way, making it also everyday harder)

All considered, I expect Walrus to claw back next GW the best part of the lead I'll eventually build up tonite, and Blank GW35 will also be a bit risky for me without one futher hit...

That said, despite not having laid out a proper plan in details, my strategy was to "ride out" DGW33-34 & BGW35 only using the TC chip, keeping the combo to be deployed in the run-in: WC36 - BB37 - AOA38
when there will be less variables to consider, making my task hopefully easier and maybe alliowing me to even choose some "extreme" solution

In summary, I fully expect and accept Walrus to take the lead back over GW34-35, but I'll coil to spring forward again in the run-in

A very interesting league race!
Good luck to us all, and may the best win

it went differently than expected, but can't complain in the end
my first century club too IIRC

speaking of , I could say....
I was Bitter at my Triple Belgian
but then consoled myself with three Courage Stout (CS)

the lead margin extended to 31p
I know I'll need now to entrench in next two GWs to weather out Walrus' comeback

Walrus has made up most of the margin already, now reduced to 10p
and just 29p over novacane: he played all 3 spurs but has no potential sub to come in

- in blue, doublers who missed 1st game and could be subbed if they miss 2nd too, with those who'd sub in and their pts
it's unlikely tho that they'd be "rested" for two games, missing the Merseyside Derby, in "preparation" for Saturday's Newcastle game...
It could be eventually the case for Everton, who'll have the FA cup Semi vs Utd, but tha't s just my wishful thinking*
- Funko played BB and the doublers on his "bench" are counted as normal players, their 1st game already included in his total

keeping Vardy instead of Kane (to bring in Lukaku and TC his 4p! ) paid off last GW, but could bite me back in this one

I see I'm the only one who spent his GW34 transfers stupidly and wasn't reactive enough to get rid of Lukaku
*of course he'll inanely get 1p in the derby now, to deny me Alli's 15p

several different doublers between Walrus and me, the residual 10p margin could be easily overturned this gw already
canceling out Payet, and "one" Ozil, we'll still have

MoSe: Aguero; Migno, Lukaku (vs each other...); Ozil, Iwobi, Kosc (not counting Coleman)
Walrus: Moreno, Couthino; DDG, Rojo, Martial; 2*Sanchez, Bellerin

I can't help but feeling a heavy underdog

both Dann & Ward missing could also further dent the already meager chances for Hennessey to keep a CS...
playing a DGW BB can be rewarding, the risks are indeed injuries, rotation, bans...

Aguero did his job, although who'd have thought him scoring 3 @Che then just one @New



Big Wednesday tonite

the two chasers "grouped" together, but Walrus keeps posing the greatest threat
he could regain the lead tointe already
of course I'm all for Lukaku missing the derby otherwise he should score "at least" a brace...

Payet, Gomes and all our involved LIV & EVE players start
(except Coleman who we knew was injured)
goodbye to all the sub pts which could cover up any derby absence
(which hurts me most as I'd have brought up 15+3=18p)

Rojo & Fosu on bench
Speroni plays, Hennessey not in squad! no explanation found yet (just rested?)

What this tells us is that double game weeks doesn't always mean double scoring. With the FA Cup games and Europe for Liverpool few top players played two full games. So much for bringing Martial in thinking he would do well against Villa and Palace but who knows, if i had kept Lukaku in i may have made him captain for the week. I was actually intending to select Sanchez as Triple Captain but forgot to tick the box so i'll have to use it wisely in the last few weeks.

Still fuming i meant to click on Sanchez as Triple captain! Had that planned for a couple of weeks too. Should be reading it as Sanchez(c) 75pts.

Ouch. I had even posted it here that I was expecting you to TC Sanchez!

I expect him to reasonably TC Sanchez next GW, whom I lack atm
Well done anyway, and ...luckily for the competition!

I had also foreseen that you'd have likely made up the gap if not even regained the lead, after my freak GW33 score.

A very interesting league race!

What I didn't foresee was my score not being just bad, but abysmal

Code:
1916	Walrus	=
1895	MoSe	- 21
1871	novacn	- 45
1845	Funko	- 71
1771	Debasr	-145
from +31 to -21, a 52p swing!
otoh in previous GW I had just gone from -4 to +31

low scores gw after the dgw orgy - harder to get back the ground lost
Code:
1961	Walrus	=
1942	MoSe	- 19
1910	novacn	- 51
1899	Funko	- 62
1808	Debasr	-153
Walrus season first inside top 200k
Funko chasing again his seasonal top ranking, and still dancing with novacane
will they swap places again, or "bounce" like thy did in GW23?
Debaser keeps slipping downhill, at risk to drop beyond 1M again

must had mistaken a 2p for a 1p in Walrus team, the margin is 1p wider
Code:
2006	Walrus	=
1994	MoSe	- 12
1936	Funko	- 70
1932	novacn	- 74
1835	Debasr	-171


Quote:
Funko ... still dancing with novacane - will they swap places again ...?
yes, just because novacane braked harder

Quote:
Debaser ... at risk to drop beyond 1M again
and he did
he should begin looking behind his shoulder, he's now closer to EiF (1759p, +76) than to the duo above him (-97 to novacane)
__________________________________________

Ranking-wise,
Walrus reached now 187k overall,
while despite a decent 417k GR, I failed to get back inside top 200k, stopping at 225k

Last season I won the league with a 175k Overall Ranking, Walrus is well poised to improve that

I scored 48 but took two hits (-8p), one to bring in Matial for Kane
so Walrus actually gained 3p over the weekend

this DGW is far less rewarding so far, otoh in previous DGW the top scores in the end had one 2p + 1 haul....
a warming up injury for a doubler is unforeseeable bad luck, besides, with Rashford dropped Martial was set to play front striker....
Should he miss tomorrow match too (I read he just felt a twinge and was halted just to be careful...) Walrus would bring in 1p as sub, while I'm already counting all points with BB...
apart me having prepared with more doublers (and my highest score after the weekend is my only singler Sanchez!), we have quite different lineups so it could still go either way.... (which is not what I had planned/expected)

Focusing on our title race only, canceling out same players:
Walrus: Payet, Rojo, DDG, Defoe, Coutinho
MoSe: Antonio, Smalling, Deeney, Cathcart, Gomes, Lukaku, PVA, Mannone, Firmino, 2*Hazard
