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

      Union does play first though, so we will see team sheet.

      • I was about to bring him in there. Looking at Mittlestadt of Hertha for tonight.

        • If you are looking at players from Union or Hertha you will have the benefit of a team sheet so at least that is a positive, plus the ability to star a player and hope to get lucky.

          One quick one on Hertha defenders, they play RBL and Dortmund away over the next 4 fixtures, so those could be problematic with the possibility of 2 or less being very possible.

          To me the big 3 in Germany are RBL, Bayern and Dortmund even if they are a bit jumbled right now in the Bundesliga.

          Mittlestadt has played 4 against those teams this season and has scored: 1,4,3 and -2.

          That being said the 2 games at home could make up for it although Union is probably the best defence from the bottom half of the table they tend to be a tad difficult and Augsburg their other opponent is not a great side but he got a -2 last time he played them although I do suspect that will not be the case this time.

          I like Middlestadt just not sold on him over the next four. Still for his price, he might be worth the gamble.

          I’m happy to play a bit fast and loose over the rest of this season – learning the game etc.

          I’ll see how tonight goes and who I go for. I’m very impressed so far with the set up, point scoring and the app itself.

        • Well if you are going to have that cavalier of an attitude, I might just go in with you if I hear anything bad on Nkuku in the presser. drinks

    Which would you go for, a cheapo defender or a cheapo mid ?

    Jakobs back in the squad not sure about the XI.

    On Gnabry and Thiago
    “It’s looking good for Serge. Regarding Thiago, we have to wait and see. We hope we’ll have them both with us. Otherwise we will compensate.”

    Christopher Trimmel: Union Berlin’s captain with more set-piece assists than Trent Alexander-Arnold https://www.bundesliga.com/en/bundesliga/news/christopher-trimmel-more-set-piece-assists-than-trent-alexander-arnold-union-11162
    Just checked his fantasy points. Only one negative score and plenty of 10 and 15+ even a few 20+ points. Not bad at 9.2 yes

    Ivan, I have cleared up the extra fixture problem. You are right about the missing one. Fantasy wise that game is irrelevant, but I think I do have to move some fixtures around on the tracker.

    There are no DGWs in FBL and here is what they do.

    So Gnabry starts? I don’t have any other BM player. I was planning to sell Sancho (not 100% decided) and get either Lewa/a def. Sancho was my cash cow – also not sure if he is fully fit from calf problem. Now Gnabry news made me confused.

    Lewa is likely to have reduced minutes (assuming BM locks the win early) because he is 1 YC away from a suspension and next match is the all important decider kind of match vs. Dortmund.

    What time does the teamsheet comes out? Need to check Lenz also.
