It's odd to see Liverpool like they play right now (the Bournemouth game aside), but I think they will find their form again soon enough. Looking at the table from an entertainment perspective, it's fun that no team have got a gap already.
Bookies still have Liverpool as second favorites to win the league, to be honest I am not convinced. I think Liverpool may have a season similar to the one two seasons ago. Losing Mane and an aging midfield are issues Klopp needed to sort out.
Former England striker and Arsenal fan Darren Bent loses bet with Andy Goldstein.
We have another deadline this Saturday at 11:00 UK time. Have your teams ready by then!
Really? City are surely clear of everyone else, even though they've sold Jesus, Zinchenko and Sterling. Liverpool will have a good season I think, even though they've had a bad start; they're still a very good team. But as you mention above, they have issues they have to address in upcoming transfer windows.
What was the bet between Bent and Goldstein?
That green arrow gave me a 1M rank climb, was very much needed after my last 2 GW's.
If Goldstein/Man United had lost Goldstein would have had to wear an Arsenal shirt live on Air.
Tuchel sacked according to reports...
Chelsea part company with head coach Thomas Tuchel
A club statement read: "On behalf of everyone at Chelsea FC, the Club would like to place on record its gratitude to Thomas and his staff for all their efforts during their time with the Club. Thomas will rightly have a place in Chelsea's history after winning the Champions League, the Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time here.
"As the new ownership group reaches 100 days since taking over the Club, and as it continues its hard work to take the club forward, the new owners believe it is the right time to make this transition.
"Chelsea's coaching staff will take charge of the team for training and the preparation of our upcoming matches as the Club moves swiftly to appoint a new head coach."
Too early IMO unless there is major friction behind the scenes. Tuchel is a top class manager though some of Chelsea's recruitment puzzles me they have spent a lot of money. Perhaps since the new owners came in they wanted to go in a different direction to Tuchel, will be interesting to see who comes in, Poch is out of work no doubt his name will be in the frame.
Well done! It just shows how a few right decisions this early in the FPL season can have such a huge impact on overall rank. One prominent FPL content creator has previously tweeted that he doesn't give too much thought about overall rank until around gameweek 10. Makes sense really, as there so much that can happen.
Ah, I see. Not the worst punishment from losing a bet though! :))
Can definitely see how Chelsea want to make changes, as things have clearly not worked out for them so far this season. On the other hand, we're still very much in the early stages of the season…
True things ca change in FPL very quickly, a differential can changes things in a flash. i just need to stay with the pack and not do anything stupid like not captaining Haaland :))
Potter to Chelsea allover the media.
Salah out in FPL...
Will Mo Salah's goal return reduce this season? 🤔 Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler assess his new role
Food for thought from an FPL perspective.
It's the balance between playing safe and taking a few calculated risks and/or trusting your gut feeling that shoots you up the rankings. Doesn't have to be the captaincy either – just owning Rashford and Toney was enough to make that 1m rank climb!
Potter is certainly a great pick for Chelsea, but I wonder if Chelsea is the best fit for him, who might thrive best being given time to build a project – which is not something Chelsea is known for with their managerial track record. You'd think he'd be better off at a club like Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal etc. On the other hand, this is a chance that doesn't present itself very often, so you get why he might be very interested.
Hahaha, great video! :))
I had pencilled gameweek 8 as a potential wildcard gameweek. Will have to see if we get confirmation when this game is rescheduled to, before pulling the trigger or not.
Liverpool are becoming quite the FPL headache. I don't know yet if I dare go without Salah and Alexander-Arnold, but their performances suggests you can spend the money elsewhere…
Saw the defensive work of the Liverpool players for one of the goals they conceded, and it was shockingly bad. I already have fires to put out in by defence, and I've added Trent to that list…
The mourning period for a Monarch is 10 days, it's possible that next weeks games will be cancelled also.
Good tip from Ben Crellin on Twitter:
Yes, I see cricket and rugby will go ahead as planned.
Just watching Let's Talk FPL Andy is going through the above information. Because of the European games midweek I have not done anything, I was thinking of rolling over a transfer in any case.
I had a transfer (and potentially a hit) planned for the weekend. Will now save the free transfer and reassess when we get further news about gameweek 8. I had been looking at which gameweek to play the wildcard, in order to sort out some issues. With two free transfers available – and potentially having to play one FT if gameweek 8 doesn't go ahead, then I might hold the wildcard just a little bit longer.
A lot can happen in that time though, so playing the wildcard might be inevitable in the end even so.
The break will benefit a few managers certainly the likes of Potter at Chelsea and Brighton coaching staff to name a few sides, more prep time to deal with recent changes. Liverpool may also get players back and work toward sorting out issues.
Certainly, the extra days of rest and preparations the teams get, might make us look at our FPL assets differently.
The postponement has made it difficult for me to plan ahead. I had a few transfers planned or at least under consideration, but I have no idea what to do now, as some transfers are less appealing given the gameweek 8 fixtures - and if gameweek 8 is also postponed – gameweek 9 fixtures.
Yes it's quite unfair on those people.
Even scottish football is PP which seems even stranger.
Got access to La liga so i will be watching that instead.
Back of the net! Cup starts in GW34 ?
Considered watching a couple of La Liga games myself as well, but a little break from football doesn't hurt now and then, so I decided to do some errands instead!
Hadn't checked until you mentioned it @007InAction, but you're right, the cup starts in gameweek 34!
Didn't read the rules in detail last season, but the current rules are:
Serious pile up with the World Cup looming, plus Arsenal Europa game off. Manchester United not playing in the Prem for a month as international break is coming up. It's a bit of a mess.
Already made a transfer, wish I had not at this point if other games are canceled.
Edited: Its been confirmed, just checked FPL as things stand I can field 10 players one likely being on the bench I have one free transfer left. Also I have Dias and Cancelo one or both could be benched we know what Pep roulette is like though with no games this past weekend hopefully city will field a strong side..
This is really a tricky situation for FPL managers to navigate through. Definitely see why making an early transfer makes sense, if you have two free transfers going into this gameweek.
I can field 11 players if I take a hit, by the looks of it. But that includes Stones, who's injury doubt. 70/30 in favour of playing the wildcard now, as things stand…
