Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Hey matt you said I was allowed to be in this LMS league even though I'm maxed out 15 on the site right? Did I forget to send the money?

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Damn, can't believe that, would anybody object to me being in it? I'll put in an extra £20 to the prizepool so double buyin (£40) Was an honest mistake, I had it wrote down that I paid but clearly my mistake.

Id say let the goat in, he wouldn't have got knocked out this week and the intention to be in was clearly there. Also free £20 for the league.

Phew! Survived my horror show of captaining carroll this week. Been making -ev decisions in Barca too. Showing up 4 hours late to tournaments and getting stoned all day. Let's hope my decision making improves this week. Might start with a wildcard.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Woof, by the skin of my teeth. My team is dog**** atm thanks to feghouli + rhodes (would have had negredo or gaston + antonio prob otherwise). Almost did a week 2 wild card.

You finished 788th last year and 14,538th the year before? Very impressive for just a 2 year record.
Looking at your team though, it's pretty..........ummmmm......unorthodox!
Putting aside the selection of Feghouli + Rhodes, it's the structure.
There is a lot of strength in depth there at the expense of a stronger XI.
That worked well last year as a lot of cheaply priced players scored very well and most of the super premiums disappointed. Perhaps it will work again but if Kun and Ibra continue smashing it and a couple of other premiums start firing, it will be unsustainable.
As your team is so unorthodox, if you continue playing like that, it'll probably do very well or very badly imo.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

I finished in top 500 last year iirc and top 10k previous. Fixtures > form. Always fading the players running above expectation esp with bad fixtures. First few weeks always can be rough because if your assumptions about starting lu are wrong you need to wild card immediately or if it's just a few players can fix with xfers in 2-3 gw. Didn't help I forgot there was a fri game and didn't finish making some tweaks I wanted (changing capt).

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that giggle girl looked up where you finished with numbers that precise

Ah the old form v fixtures debate. I'm solidly on the side of form > fixtures

I already posted your finishes (which you've slightly misremembered) and commented favourably on them.
Other than that, this post doesn't relate to anything I said?
I'm talking about your squad structure.
I can elaborate if you like or I can gtfo

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

It's form AND fixtures of course, like anything in life everyone wants it to be Black and White but it's always in the grey, 50 shades one might speculate.

Duck you need to man up about a gamble gone wrong, the Friday fixture excuse seems a little hard to believe when you were tweeting about the very same Friday game! Making tweaks = clicking the mouse a few times, I'm sure you had time.

I actually commend people for a bit of risk, Deulofeu was bound to get 60 minutes so it was a big risk, but none the less fairplay.

Re: Fantasy Premier League 16/17

Negredo was always starting ahead of Rhodes having read the pre season interviews and the lineups but I'm sure it's really easy to pick holes in my lineup too. Nobody got it perfect and it's nice to have a little flair. Silkworms bot might disagree!

The double up on WHU and Soton defence for the fixture alignment was a pretty nice idea I thought too.

Yup I'm around that too, benching capoue is whatever but the foster/Heaton debacle hurts!
