A lucky touch of genius
“We have decided to simply bend over and take whatever Pep gives us, good or bad”. That was a quote from last week in relation to buying Aguero. Turns out he was in a giving mood! Two transfers and four goals; you could be forgiven for thinking we may be a bunch of geniuses, but anybody who actually read how we arrived at last weeks decision to bring in Kun and captain him will know very differently! It wasn’t an entirely unplanned birth in the end, but our intentions did start out very differently, let’s just say the condom broke and leave it at that…

An 8th green arrow in a row sees us up to another season high of 21,336th, a rise of about 10k. Kun obviously did his bit, as did Son, elsewhere Jimenez starred with a 9, Pogba got a sublime assist, as did Doherty (less sublime though!) and Wan-B and Shaw did their bits with clean sheets. The rest simply made up the numbers to see us end up on a fairly respectable 88 points, 23 above the average.

Last week’s result…

This week’s transfer decision…
We go into this week with 1 free transfer and £0.3m in the bank. We have to have an eye on the blanks ahead in GW27 of course, and to that end we are without Digne, Sane and Aguero for that one as we stand. Let’s go see how we plan to juggle that with the need for actual points this week….

It was a fairly simple and unanimous decision this week, there are no tales of incompetence or internal struggles to regale you with this week, unfortunately. As much as Aguero was a welcome addition last week, and as much as he served his purpose, we are nothing if not ruthless in our pursuit of points and quite simply Aubameyang suits us perfectly this week in that respect, on more than one level. He has the better (arguably the best; see Huddersfield) fixture and he’s a bit of a flat track bully against this sort of opposition; it’s difficult not to offend somebody along the line when you say this but he has 24 points against Fulham and 20 against Cardiff over two games and double digits against Burnley and… Spurs.

To confirm then; we are SELLING AGUERO & BUYING AUBAMEYANG

Our Captain is Mo Salah
New recruit PEA was well and truly in the mix here but Mo just edged him by the finest of margins. It could be that Bournemouth’s form against the ‘big 6’ swayed the vote; 8 games, 7 defeats, 22 conceded, and in some of those games heavily so. Or it could be the memory of what Salah did to them last time. Or it could be that we just think Liverpool may suddenly reawaken and kick on again and that this feels like the sort of fixture in which that may happen. Or it could all just be pie in the (blue) sky thinking. For the record, our one Liverpool fan voted for Aubameyang!

    ***NEW ARTICLE – FF247 SITE TEAM GW26***

    The committee have sat, spoken and been utterly ruthless.

    Let’s just hope he now recovers from his sniffles!

    Ruthless to the end guys, great team.
    Am in a similar position myself but have an upcoming GK problem with the blank GW coming up.

    I am thinking of rolling the FT this week but PEA is so tempting.

    The site team is doing fantastic this season, I’ve learned an important lesson from it which goes against everything I’ve ever thought with regards to FPL and they clearly work:

    Always focus on your weakest link: it’s always been my belief to deal with your problem areas first, case in point would be Wilson, truth is just bench him and deal with your potential strongest link first I.e. Kun to Auba.

    The other thing is patience, when you’re r a little less invested in a team and have to run all decisions past 4 other people the chances are you will invariably act in a slightly more cautious manor than usual, and as we all know patience is the name of the game!

    Great work guys, I hope that dude with the perm and Danny G are sharing similarly highly OR after following the team religiously!

      My biggest lesson from it is very similar and it’s also something I always believe in, but often also forget; go Route One first and foremost.

      The theory, at least, is that the biggest (and usually most obvious) point opportunities should be prioritised and actioned. Means you don’t always have the prettiest squad but usually means you have the points on the pitch. We had a debate recently when one of the committee wanted to take a -4 to basically plump up the squad by dealing with red flags rather than just going said route one. And I get that totally, I do also however think that’s why some of us get bogged down by ‘over tending’ to our team. And why so many people report (Hi Ivan!) their 2nd team as doing better, because there’s less T&C on that one and more of a gut reaction such as: ‘I want those players this week, I don’t really care about this team, I’m buying them regardless’, etc.

      I also find that that’s when hits work out best too, when they’re concentrated on the route one approach. A couple of big hitters in tends to work, start throwing in wishy washy enablers and they invariably don’t.

      Just my random take aways from it anyway!

    Great work guys. I’m desperate for this GW to get going so I don’t have to read any more about what could’ve been with Kun captainers!

    FT used already. Any need for further changes to this lot? PEA for a hit?
