Fantasy Football Diary – Game-weeks 5-8

Fantasy Football Diary – GWs 5-8 Much has happened since we last met, unfortunately most of the newsworthy stuff has not been FPL related and as a word of warning, life has turned a bit rubbish, truth be told. I’ll try not to depress you or indeed look for sympathy! FPL has been very dull in comparison though a decent green arrow in GW8 will hopefully give some momentum to my season. Game-week 5 The move to the UK becomes ever closer and the lead up to GW5 is highlighted by two pieces of good news in one day – can’t remember the last time that happened. Firstly the in-laws left and then later that day we received confirmation that William has been given a place at the village school. Happy days, a huge weight off our minds, maybe things will now begin to improve. I am going to ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Diary – Game-weeks 3 & 4

Fantasy Football Diary – GWs 3 & 4 Welcome to the second instalment of my FPL diary. Going into Game-week 3 I sit in 240,686th place having scored 79 & 80pts in Game-weeks 1 & 2.

On a personal front, our move to the UK gets closer and at the time of writing I am winning the box-packing contest with the Mrs by 10-0. All our flights back to the UK are now booked – no turning back now. Pretty sad but great for the kids and that’s the focus. The lead up to GW3 is pretty uneventful. I genuinely don’t enjoy this time of the season as the early wildcarders take over and build great looking teams which invariably makes one env...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Diary – Pre-season and the big kick off

Fantasy Football Diary – Pre-season and the big kick off A Year in Provence – not quite. A year in Monaco – nearer, but ultimately it won’t be. Will explain later. Instead welcome to the first instalment of my FPL diary as we journey through my thought process, or lack of it, and rollercoaster through the emotions of FPL life – the highs and the lows and the impact it has on everyday life….and vice versa! Pre-season The lead up to GW1. I can’t help myself, as soon as FPL was launched I began to tinker. Everyday. Until I just realised that I was changing my mind, everyday. I’ll be honest I had 3 ‘musts’ that I absolutely wanted and would have, unless injury intervened – these were Salah, Robertson and Mendy. I um’d and ah’d over the keeper position….DDG or Ederson? Two rotating 4.5s? ...[Read More]
