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. 86 points from my WC team! I’m nervous not having Aguero vs Arsenal as their defense let in 3 against WBA. Holding off til after Chelsea though. Hoping Sanchez is ok so I can save my ft this week. Maybe it’ll keep him from suiting up for Chile?! #WishfulThinking…

  2. What’s people’s thoughts on Josh King? He’s obviously on fire, but has some tough fixtures coming up. Best to leave him alone? Or worth bringing in as someone who’ll play every week? Anyone else worth considering for less than 7.0?

    • Tadic , 7 million and nice fixtures and dgws coming

      • Wafflez – when is the dgw?

        • Not set yet . Gw 34 and 37 and some teams might have dgws in other week also i think

      • Why do people keep suggesting scummers ;) Thanks Wafflez, but I can’t consider anyone from that team.

        • Probably Son

        • That could be a great shout smash. Is Son guaranteed to be starting up top in Kane’s absence?

        • I reckon so. Jansson is in the background but he’s terrible. A good indication was he only came on right at the end

    • He’s a must have I’d say. I’m Keeping him for the season end now

      • Cheers Neilos. Do the upcoming fixtures not concern you? The moves I’m looking at are Llorente & Siggy to Vardy & King.

        • I wouldnt be taking Siggy out.He’s one of the most consistent performers and still has great fixtures !

        • I’d leave Siggy in. Top assister in the league with 11 and 8 goals also.

        • I wouldn’t transfer out Sigurdson tbh.

        • For 5.7 a mid who’s been playing as either a striker or second striker is very good value no matter the fixture, seems a perfect fit for that fourth midfield spot. Stanislas is due to return though so that might affect King a little but I’m not really sure, I’m no real expert on how Bournemouth play.

        • To afford Vardy I need to make 0.7. My current midfield is Mane, Sanchez, Alli & Siggy. Not too keen on losing any of the others. I guess I could downgrade the defence further!

        • Hey Banjo Liverpool Chelsea Spurs is hard but he could score. Plus on pens too, but after that it’s a good run! Go for it!!

        • Banjo keep siggy!

        • Swansea have played more games than everyone else. They have Boro next but after their fixtures tend to sour

        • I think you’ve all successfully convinced me to keep Siggy!!!! I’m now leaning towards Llorente & Baines to Vardy & Huth. Only problem is I have no wiggle room on price, so would need to make the moves very early.

        • That makes sense Banjo.

        • Huth and Vardy does make more sense

    • Bournemouth have scored as many as Utd. I don’t have him either. Considering whether he is needed given those fixtures.

  3. Had a decent week. Scored 70 points moved up by 100K to 800K, still a poor ranking

    • That’s a fair old jump Chris. Keep plugging away. 500k is your target.

      • Yes hopefully! Glad I have 2 FT for the next gameweek. Was looking to bring in Alexis but have to check his fitness

    • It’s going to be a hard slog getting up the OR as it’s pretty condensed in and around that area, the good news is though that you’re only around 25 points adrift of the top 500k so it’s all still to play for, sometimes the better years are where you’re trying to fight back from a disastrous start.

      • True, on paper my team looks good but for one reason or another I don’t get the points that I deserve

  4. Hmm, scored 71 points. Sort of happy I kept faith in Firminho. New rank 52.555. Need to end up in top 50k but hoping for the top 10k.

    • What’s your worst rank Raz? I always try and make sure I’m inside that. Set that particular bench lower last season though with 84k. Sat at 99 now so should be well within it.

      • Raz always seems to have a good rank. I’m heading towards my worst ever rank. However still clinging to those doubles

        • That’s a mightily impressive and consistent history Smash. But yeah, bit of work to do this time yet!

        • Yeah a lot. It all strangely went downhill around Christmas . I usually start weak and get stronger but this year has been a struggle

        • I have seen a couple of people on here do better with 2 teams. I have never tried it

      • I had a really bad rank a few seasons ago. Outside of the top 100k. That was my second season I think, and it was the first time I managed two teams. Also the last time. Lol!

        Anyway. I sort of focussed on the other team, not this one. I used my main account for experimenting with players. HAHA! So stupid. Anyway. Since then two top 10k rankings.

  5. Did anyone break the 100 point barrier this week? Seems like a lot of decent scores.

    Mid 80s for me and the 3 above me in my ML still beat me. Now 100 points adrift and looking at an Arsenal style March meltdown

    • 100 points is still well within reason with 2 double GW’s and one or two chips left in hand, the trick is not to panic and try for the extreme differentials too early (It sounds like your rivals have similarish teams to yours).

      I’ve not hit the ton yet this season but I’e always got them fingers crossed for the next GW.

      • 100 points is doable. Very tough though. It will all be ok the doubles. And probably ditching all the players who have played more games at the right time

        • I did 100 with Sergio triple captain in DGW

  6. Having best of the season since I’ve started playing FPL. Continuos 7th green arrow has made me reach 32k from 220k. keeping faith in players who are in good form even when they have one bad week, has paid off well. Hope I continue this form till the end. Thank you very much for all your support guys. Keep up the top stuff. Much appreciated.

  7. Hello Guys.

    What’s wrong with Mori?

    I lost 2 CS in 2 matches with him.

    • Jonathan, he’s lost his starting place in the team so whilst he has come off the bench, he hasn’t played the 60mins or more which are required for the clean sheet points.

  8. With the upcoming DGWs in mind who’s the best defender at 4.6 or under? I have Coleman, Alonso, Robertson & Chamvers as the others

    • Yoshida ?

      • I’d thought of him but wasn’t sure as their rearranged games are all pretty awful. Wondered wether squeezing an extra 0.1 elsewhere would be worth it to get Jones, Stones or Davies?

        • The flip side to that coin is that the majority of the other games all look pretty decent, Saints defence is probably a little underrated at the minute but to use Bertrand as an example his points per game tally is slightly higher than Azpilicueta’s which is pretty good going as he’s managed the 19 games so far this season, I reckon Brooky’s right and you can’t go wrong with Yoshida for the budget pick up.

  9. Good afternoon all. I have 1.4 ITB & 1 FT left. I am definitely going to do baines to valencia which will leave me 1.1 ITB. with this money which move is the most sensible??

    1. mane to hazard
    2. coutinho to pedro/tadic
    3. Hit is injurious to health

    Any suggestion regarding the team would be very much appreciated.

    • hochoki

      We’re miles away from the next deadline so I wouldn’t rush your moves, even the Baines one which you are set on (which isn’t a bad one by the way). But if you do escape the IB with no other issues to deal with Coutinho to Pedro I like. I too have both Coutinho and Mane but I’m leaving them in for the derby. That game can be bonkers goals wise.

    • I don’t think you need to take a hit hochoki.

  10. Well since I’m not banned and looks like it’s just been a technical error I guess I’ll be hanging around :)

    How’s this team look? I’m looking to capitalise on double gameweeks.

    • technical error? Obviously you’ll have to monitor Sanchez but with their games lined up I’d be tempted to bring in another Arsenal player despite the way they played Saturday.

      • Yeah I still can’t login in to my account and need k use a VPN to post.

        Ideally another Arsenal would be good but literally only Sanchez is consistent in that team.

    • Waxys

      Your first eleven looks good.

      • Thanks :) it’s good to know I don’t need to make any changes for once.

        My bench is week but they do play on occasion and I do have Jak.

  11. Had a decent week, scored 74 and overall rank of 28k. Still have bench boost and wild card left for double game weeks.
    Any advice on my team?
    Urgent needs to get in are Sanchez, Ali and a proper third striker.

    • Wait till we hear news on Sanchez’s injury.
      1 of your Liverpool mids can easily change to Alli and Llorente to Gabbi was probably going to be the most common transfer this week but he went off injured yesterday.
      Have you got any money in the bank? Vardy could be a great differential.

    • charl

      Great rank mate – apologies I missed you out yesterday when I namechecked our members with brilliant Overall Rank so far this season. Brilliant performance so far.

      I think you have a proper third just now in Llorente, I wouldn’t worry too much about his latest blank just yet. He has some fair fixtures ahead which he could benefit from with ‘Boro, Stoke, West Ham and Watford to come.

      You would need surgery elsewhere to get Sanchez in – possibly losing one of your big defenders there.

      Firmino to Alli looks the straight swap to me. Can you afford that?

      • Hi Guys, thank u so much. I have 2.5 itb so enough cash to play around with. Vardy sounds appealing to me. I was always planning on getting Sanchez and Kun in after thrie tough fixtures. Sometimes in hind sight the blank GW”s forces Sanchez and Ali was my sacrifice as well out of my team.
        Also extra big defender was due to GW 28, Alonso and Valencia and Mcauly have been my main stays this season.
        Liverpool are playing B/Mouth at Anfield so my thoughts were freeze transfer if no injuries on international duty

      • Eish, see bournmouth is only the following week. I will sleep on it whether i pause for next Gw or bring him in for Burnley away vs Firmonho at home to Everton, brazilians also always come back late from int break

        • I believe I read somewhere that Coutinho & Firmino will not be back in Liverpool until the Thursday and then play Everton at lunchtime on the Saturday.

        • I hadn’t considered that Kop.

          Could be the time to cut Coutinho loose and keep hold of Mane.

        • I think so GP. Mane also has two internationals but the 2nd is being played in France so he won’t have far to travel back.

        • That’s odd Kop – they play at 10pm (U.K. Time) on the Tuesday.

        • DMC, that does seem odd. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that they wouldn’t be back until Thursday but I can’t remember where :)

        • Well, if this means they’ll train normally on thursday then yeah. I read it initialy as if they would arrive/land on thursday. Two full training days should be enough then to overcome any jet lag etc.

        • This isn’t where I’d originally read it but this article suggests one days training.

        • Humm, maybe Coutinho will join Cookie in Mauritius in is way back to the UK…

  12. * Rearranged games! *


    I haven’t yet seen where they sit in relation to the current schedule.

    • Looks like GW 34 with the Boro Man Citeh one in 35, cheers GP.

      • Just noticed that’s FA cup semi final weekend so it’s effectively only a DGW for Boro and Man U.

        • Yeah just noticed that myself ! Palace too.Not too much to get excited about !

    • Cheers GP so they all drop in to gw34 then ? Let the planning madness begin ! Something to do during the international break !! :)

    • Thanks for that GP.

      So this is the week where a few teams were going to have blanks but I’m assuming that won’t be the case now.

      DGW for Man United?

    • Cheers GP

      As things stand that gives us DGW’s for Boro, Palace & United in GW34.

      • Boro play Bournemouth (a) & Sunderland (h)
        Palace play Liverpool (a) & Spurs (h)
        United play Burnley (a) & City (a)

      • West Brom have a blank

        • Mcauley will still probably score, I think I missed a trick in not picking him up early doors.

        • What?! I’m not playing that week.

        • McAuley still owes Brunt 3 points for stealing his assist. It’s pretty obvious whoever decides these things in FPL Towers had McAuley in his team!

        • Good to see I’m not the only sour one around this morning Red, it’s always good to re open them old wounds now and then, just cruise through some of the linked teams classic leagues and I’m sure you’ll come across that regulars league.

        • Haha, hey Andy! Yeah, that was complete crap and I won’t soon forget it. Hell, I’m still bitter that Deulofeu got screwed out of two obvious assists from last season when I had him! :D

    • No worries everyone.

      I think Kop has summed it up correctly here.

      From what I can see.
