Oh b*llocks, is it?!

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GWX. No, this isn’t an April Fools Day joke, we are actually publishing a Site Team article! Why? Well, because we meant to do one two weeks ago, and then again last week also, but we didn’t, for reasons which we shall expand on later. Perhaps also it is because we are a bit bored, and simply not used to having a break. But also it is to remind you of a few key FPL related things, which may have slipped your mind, understandably.

We shall however begin with an update of our GW29 performance, at least for some semblence of normality, if nothing else. Looking back at it, into what seems like a lifetime ago now, we evidently got a bit shafted with the DGW postponment having brought in Saka and Aubameyang (as captain) specifically for it, and having held onto KDB too. We’ll spare you the horror story of the rest but other than Salah getting a goal we didn’t have a single other player score above 3 points. And we had some good players, with decent fixtures. When your luck is out and all that… It looks like it meant quite a fall in the rankings too, in fact we managed to double our rank from about 82k to 164,492nd.

Onto the two article titles then..

GWX
No, this wasn’t a typo. It’s more because we have no idea when the season will restart, of course, but also less of an idea how. The fact that FPL Towers decided that we could keep making transfers throughout this ‘hiatus’ seemed to be because they presumed it would restart at a later GW. Which now looks less than likely. What is perhaps now more probable is that (if anything) there will be some sort of crammed in mini-tournament style period of about 6 weeks where they will attempt to finish the season. Re-starting at the GW30 cut-off seems the most likely scenario. How FPL deals with that is another matter, given their above stance. Will they simply reset us and ask us to forget all the interim transfers? Anything is possible. But for now we have been asked to crack on regardless, and so we have…

‘Oh, bollocks’, etc
This is a reference to our lack of a recent article. The reality is that we did intend to do one prior to GW31 and we did indeed have a meeting to discuss our phantomtransfers. Only for someone to point out in the midst of said meeting that the deadline had already passed as it was a Friday night one, and not as we all assumed a normal Saturday one! So that was one transfer down the drain. Not that we feel this will matter particularly, as it looks like we will have more than we can possibly use before proceedings get back under way.

And so we sat down in the middle of last week for another meeting… only to discover half way through that one that it was indeed an International Break, as such, and that there was no planned deadline for another week! Pay more attention, we must. Reinstante the Countdown Timer, we have…

Our GW32 Transfer(s)
Crack on regardles, we do. And we have formulated something of a mini-plan. So we thought we would share this with you, for a lack of anything else to actually say at this moment in time!

Bruno Fernandes seems to be our main missing jigsaw piece right now and so we have decided to prioritise him, along with a whole other raft of minor surgeries which we hope shall put our squad in better shape, should this be required as and when To accommodate Bruno this week we have decided to do away with our double Liverpool defence, an idea that was beginning to be in vogue around about GW29…

Beyond this we are looking at something like Saka to Mount and possibly Ings to DCL, but we shall see.

To confirm then we have SOLD Andy Robertson & James Maddison and BOUGHT Aaron Wan-Bissaka & Bruno Fernandes

Captain – Boris Johnson

    Hello folks, looks like we are on the other side of lockdown. Hope everyone has been doing well throughout. Something strangely comforting logging into FPL today and seeing fixtures… live. Only problem is I think I’ve forgotton how to play FPL. yes

    Hello everyone!

    I hope you’re all good! The game is live, so are our dilemmas!

    I’ve been doing some tinkering during the pause in order to prepare my team but it kinda backfired and now I find myself in a bit of a pickle. It looks like this is going to be the only DGW and we have unlimited FT (but IDK what to do with them). I have lots of funds locked in TAA & Raul, also have some (between 0.1-0.3M) in Salah, Bruno, KDB, McCarthy and Jota.
    The most logical strategy is to use these FTs and BB now to take advantage of the DGW. Then WC next week to fix the mess but how would I do it without destroying my team value in the process?!

    My team is solid for the upcoming weeks but not for this one…
    What would you do with this?

    Many thanks drinks

      Points are more important than value so will have to take it on the chin that’s my attitude. Maybe keep TAA and Jimenez and take a hit on the others.

      Rosco says:

      I’ve just had a quick look as your team is similar to mine, I always planned to FH this GW once it launched. Initially I thought unlimited transfers scuppered that plan but the more I think about it, it may still be better for my team!

      • Stone Frog says:

        Any advice from FBL players, would holding the wildcard be useful in term of potential increased injuries?

      • Tornado says:

        I am considering FHing as well, cause this seems to be the perfect compromise between loading up on DGW players and not losing what I’ve done for the last 3-4-5-6 weeks. It just feels weird using a chip when we have unlimited free transfers on our hands.

        • Rosco says:

          It does but the easiest way to look at it is to look at your team for 31 and see how many of those players you would change, if it’s very few then it makes sense as you technically don’t need the unlimited transfers. I’m looking at the unlimited transfers like that extra bar of chocolate.. do I need it … no… could I have it… yes… but it might make me sick big-lol

        • Tornado says:

          That’s a great way to look at it! I might as well do the same laugh2
          I have 2 more questions then:
          1) when are you going to use your BB if not now?
          2) can we do few transfers, and then do many more using our FH chip? As in, for example: PVA In, AWB Out & Taylor In, Hanley Out. So basically using some of the unlimited FTs to shape my team for the next 3-4weeks and then FH for this GW. Do you have any idea?

        • Special Agent Dale Cooper says:

          I was wondering the same Tornado. Planning to use my FH but it does seem as though we might be able to perfect our teams using the unlimited transfers before actually free hitting. Although like you i’m not quite 100% sure.

        • Rosco says:

          Just to clarify, unless FPL changes the rules regarding FH (which I doubt they will) then in essence the unlimited FTs are of no use if you play FH. Any transfers used prior to a chip use such as FH are voided when the chip is played, no reason to think that it’s any different when there are unlimited transfers.

          Tornado, with regard to BB, even if I played it in DGW 30 mu Bench would likely be made up of SGW players so it makes no difference playing it now or in another SGW most likely the week following the deployment of the WC.

          Obviously this is just my initial thoughts and if FPL change their rules we’ll be sure to let you all know!!

        • Bigpopz says:

          Tornado / Rosco
          Just be aware that if you FH you can’t use your BB as well.
          Which would defeat the object of FH?
          I’d take the free transfers & BB in the same DGW,
          But everyone circumstances are different,
          I’ll try and hold on to as many of my players with deep TV invested,
          like Ings / Lundy / Salah in my case.

        • Rosco says:

          Bigpopz, for me I don’t want the DGW players long term so if I used the unlimited transfers and BB I would in effect have to WC in 32 probably to a team similar to what i have right now.

          If there were more / better teams with a DGW then the BB might be more tempting, as it is I’m happy to use it later in a single game week good

        • Tornado says:

          Thanks for the clarification, Rosco (even though it sucks and I wish it was the other way around, so I could *try* to perfect my team for the upcoming weeks)!
          So the dilemma is back on!
          Although, I completely agree with your last reply and can’t see enough potential for BBing this week. Worst thing is there might not be another DGW, so I’d have to do something unprecedented and play it in a SGW.

      Stone Frog says:

      Agreed similar teams and same issues here. Is loading up on Villa and Arsenal really worth a Bench Boost?

      • Tornado says:

        True. I also, don’t really trust any manager atm, let alone Pep. I can think of Auba & Saka maybe,
        Grealish,
        KDB, Aguero & Ederson (or defender),
        2-3 SHU defenders.
        And I don’t have any idea whether they will play or not. Tough call

        • Smash says:

          Fixtures are not great for a lot of the single GW players either with United playing Spurs and Liverpool being away at Everton

    IF the fixtures stay as FPL have put them, we will have a DGW 37+.

    I am expecting midweek 14th July to be used for the postponed GW35+ (FA Semi) games.

    But FPL have filled this midweek with GW36+ so IF that stays then GW35+ will have blanks and 37+ doubles.
