Live Match Chat Gameweek 29 FPL News

Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 29 FPL News: After an odd GW with just the four games we are back to normal this week with a full compliment of ten to go at again this time. West Brom and Arsenal kick us off at lunchtime on Saturday and then we have no less than five 3pm games with the Palace boring Watford, Everton battering Hull, Stoke pathing the title pathway for Chelsea, Sunderland giving Burnley their best chance yet of an actual away win and then West Ham being Leicester’s latest victims since they woke up again and remembered that they are the champions. Saturday doesn’t end there though as Bournemouth host Swansea in a key game at the wrong end of the table. Sunday brings us the remaining three fixtures as ‘Boro host Man United in the early one, Spurs take on Southampton in the middle one and then Man City and Liverpool book end the lot in what could be the game of the week.

  1. Guys, when do you think is the best time to play the 2nd WC?

    • one week before the DGW

      • Assuming wk34 is dgw, so after wk33 deadline passes, then WC should be activated?

        • you cant play 2 chips in th same week. In this case you wont be able to play BB/TC and WC both. So, suggestion is to play the WC after GW32and activate BB/TC for GW34

        • Ah thanks for clarifying. That’s the one that I’m not sure about WC & BB back2back

    • Have been thinking the same. Once the fixtures have all been announced. The teams with the doubles tend to be the better teams anyway so I don’t think you need to wait till week before biggest GW

      • Heard also that dgw might be in wk34 & 37 right?

        • It’ll be both of those and there will be smaller ones in others too as both Arsenal and Saints have 3 to catch up on. Man City were announced earlier as having one in 34 already.

        • Sorry yeah, United. I’ve got City stuck in my head on that one for some reason.

        • Do we know when will the remaining fixtures for dgw be announced?

        • There’s no set date mate, they’ll just filter through as and when over the next few weeks.

        • Thanks for the info guys. Cheers

    • Coys for me it depends on ur ML. generally the best strategy would be to save it for the big DGW pre 37, then use ur bench boost that week. However if ur chasing I’d be inclined to use it as soon as the 1st stage of DGWS get announced. This may be clearer after the international break

      • Thanks Milburn. I’m leading my MLs (hopefully I can still say that end of this week) so I’m gonna wait for a “big” Dgw. Cheers

  2. Swansea are looking pretty awful

    • Jut takes one moment of Gylfi magic to get them right back in smash!

  3. Lol. If I did not have Smith coming from the bench I would be fee awful right now. Hehe.

  4. Currently on 75 if bonuses stay like this with mane, son and Kun to go!!

    According to Fix my new rank will be around 16k which ain’t bad considering I have taken several hits over the past 4 weeks!!

    • Nice won Nitro. Very Sexy score.

    • “Several” haha. Congrats mate that’s a great ranking!!!

      • Hits are good!! ;)

        • I agree… the mitro way!

        • Ha ha I like it

        • Mitro I’ve just done a piece on hits for another site and I analysed my own for the season. Can’t remember the exact numbers now but basically I was about 100 points better off over 14 hits than I would have been without them. To put that in perspective I was ranked about 100k at the time and 80 more put me at 5k and 100 and a bit less put me at 500k.

        • Honestly mitro I have massive respect for the way u play the game and u prove there’s more ways to play it than the boring conservative way. How’s ur ML going and what’s ur plans moving forward?

        • Careful planning is also not so bad ;)

        • Take the 8 off the end of that last rank and we be talking HL ;) The article is enlightening and came as a surprise to me in terms of the results. Turns out Mitro may have been onto something all along!

        • Nothing against hits…
          It’s just that – taking hits is very addictive…
          Once you feel the excitement – there’s no going back to the old boring way ))) …

        • Mine were quite measured but clustered a bit. Only took one on 10 out of 28 weeks but it was telling that when one worked I was more willing to follow on the next week, so yeah your right.

        • Never mind chasing points people also get far too caught up with the money ball aspect of the game and are a lot more willing to make that extra transfer just to save or gain that extra .1 in cash on a given GW, they’re the ones (probably) more likely to bite you in the ass.

        • I never do that Andy. Fools gold that one. Unless it’s transfer critical I wait until Friday night regardless. I can count on one hand the amount of early ones I’ve done, and that’s over 10 seasons.

        • I’m guilty as charged for the early FT sadly although I don’t normally tend to hit when I do it. (Unless of course the player that I bring gets injured, Theo Walcott has stung me with that one on numerous occasions.)

        • That’s when a hit is bad – very bad, to correct an earlier transfer.

      • @init do you mind sharing the article about hits? It would be interesting to examine why hits tend to pay off (or not) given how I used to do so much better when I took hits and the other lads seem to be doing fine right here too!

        It could be the case that taking hits in general are bad but if you’re seasoned and have thought through the process, it could work very well for you!

        • I can email it to you by all means. I can’t publish it here until it’s gone live there though. We may well publish it after it has though.

        • I should say it’s going in the FPL magazine which is advertised at the end of the article above. Think it’s live on Monday.

        • Cheer init, I’ll keep a lookout for the article on the magazine after Monday!

        • Init – can you send me the link as well mate

        • Sorry… please

          I’m steaming

        • No link yet Jäger Boy ;)

        • lol I’m on the water now

        • Can you email me it init? Going to work out how many hits I’ve taken when I get to work off the spreadsheet my mate does for our ML for the past 4 years

    • Nice Mitro! Sitting right with you!

      • Congrats poncho lad. Have u got a strategy moving forward?

        • Milburn, I’m just planning to slowly bring in players with upcoming doubles. I think the random DGWs for teams may be more important than the big DGW. I played my WC for this week and got Vardy, Sanchez, Alli, DDG, King, Costa, Ben Davies, and Yoshi. Most of them have multiple DGWs coming up.

    • Hits are the only way! Makes the game more fun and judging from my season they generally pay off. Scored 82 so far this week just to prove the point

      • Wow great score

        P.S great team value

        • Notice you didn’t say great rank lol!
          (Although I have jumped up 70k today)

  5. Evening all…
    58pts here with Walker(hopefully) ; Eriksen & Aguero still to play…

    How is everyone else’s week ?

    • 76 here thanks to big rom! Got Kun and Mane left so should finishe decent but my lack of spurs cover concerns me!

      I’d happily finish the season now as I’ve sneaked into the top 10k pretty chuffed as it’s only my second season.
      Just have to hope I don’t mess up!

      • It’s staying in the top10k that’s the hard part mate, plenty of people out there with the knives out now waiting for you to turn your back (me included), good luck.

        • Ha ha it won’t last! I’m still learning but it feels good tonight!

    • 64 with 4 still to go so I’m pretty happy with my WC team’s start, Lukaku being (c) was a major boost.

    • Think I’m on about 60 HL, Alli and Lloris to go.

  6. Llorente to Gabby will be the move after tomorrows game.

    • There’s 2 weeks left until the next deadline Elle…..

    • Whilst that’s my planned move I agree with init Elle. A long time to go before then.

    • Elle – I’m going to do the same mate! I just have enough to do it so I’m hoping he doesn’t go up
