    I think after this GW it's caution to the wind for me, I am losing ground.

    Sometimes that is what's needed to turn a season around. I find this season so difficult to get right. There's been some good gameweeks recently, though I doubt it will continue this way. Not the best start with the Bench Boost either; need some more points from Targett, Pope and hopefully Lookman.

    You are doing well, last few weeks I have made bad moves.

    Already sold Barnes for a player who is playing on the Blank GW, a risk to get them in early though Barnes price will drop and apparently out for 6 week. I should have got Son in, that was in my thoughts.

    I think your transfers have made sense on paper, they just haven't worked out. Smart transfers in the upcoming gameweeks can change things for you though.

    My original plan was to get Son in for this gameweek too, but I changed things up to get Kane instead. So far, it looks like I should have gone for Son instead.

    Fine margin for success and failure in FPL, this season has been easily the worst of the three with regards to injurys and bad luck. Admittedly fixture congestion will be contributing to that.

    Indeed. This season is really challenging to navigate. I've been trying to plan ahead 4-5 gameweeks at the time, but I have to adjust my plans almost every week, because of injuries, form or rearranging of fixtures.

    I think I gave up forward planning early season, not even checked how many players I have for the next Double GW.

    I could probably save myself the trouble and stop planning forward too. Haven't really been rewarded by the time spent yet, haha!
    Great Barnes my punt is injured wt... I give up :))

    Barnes was my captain.... #-o
    Leicester got some bad injuries.

    Ouch, that's really bad luck. Barnes was a good captaincy pick this gameweek.

    Ouch that unlucky his stats recently have been great.

    Gundagon and Stones benched for City.

    I wonder if this makes Gündogan a better captaincy option for next gameweek. :-?

    Tough to tell with Pep roulette, City conceding again no defensive points.

    Damn. Really needed those clean sheet points to make a jump in the rankings.

    I am resigned to an average score now, Salah really is my only hope.

    Gudagan got an assist late on. City won 4 - 1 in the end.

    Don't think Salah nor Gündogan points will make much difference for me as I didn't captain any of them. Clean sheets for my defenders can make a lot of difference though.

    Need some good Man Utd points against Palace.

    So did I!

    That game is probably the game this gameweek that is the most difficult to predict. I take a wild guess at a 1-1 draw!

    Here are the gameweek 27 captaincy picks!
    Gündogan: 5
    Son: 2
    Salah: 2
    De Bruyne: 2
    Sterling: 2
    Martial: 1
    Vardy: 1
    Fernandes: 1
    Stones: 1
    Dias: 1

    No surprise to see several City players make the list, with their double gameweek. Gündogan is our most captained player, picked by five managers. Salah, Son, De Bruyne and Sterling are the only other players picked by more than one manager. Good luck everyone!

    Been busy with work did not give this GW much thought, went with a safish option of Gundagon as Captain and brought in Lingard eyeing GW29.

    Gundagon as Captain for me too.
    GW29 looks like fun.
  • Posts: 15,015
    Gündogan captain here as well. I knew he'd be highly captained in the mini league I'm in, so I didn't dare captain anyone else.

    Gameweek 29 looks to be a very low scoring one given the amount of teams in action. I'm trying to navigate those fixtures with transfers; I might take a hit to field a complete eleven (hopefully), but I don't know if it's worth it.

    Good win for United though in vain with all our recent safety first draws.

    United have been poor recently it probably went against me being a United fan, I really expected a easy City win. I even had Rashford on my bench just before the deadline and changed that at the last minute thankfully.

    Finally sold Salah I kept hold of him too long, his funds can be used well elsewhere.

    Klopp should stay IMO, he has had really bad luck and personal tragedy to deal with. Liverpool will be competitive next season. It would be a mistake to sack him. Firmino needs replacing and maybe Mané or Salah could go so some rebuilding needed.

    City were average. I wonder if they are due another poor run ?

    If Liverpool lose in the CL this week do you think klopp should get the chopp ?

    He's had over 5 years in charge and he looks like he doesn't have any answers to not scoring in 6-7 games and 6 straight losses at home ?

    No chance... they should keep Klopp no matter what happens for the rest of the season, give him next season to rebuild and get VVD and Gomes back. You don't sack a manager who just won you the league and won the Champions League the season before. Liverpool need a rebuild in areas.

    Sackings at city and chelsea happened after winning the title or CL so you never know.

    I wonder if/when Stevie G will return especially after winning the sfl ?

    As a United supporter I would be happy if Klopp left, personally my gut tells me Klopp may walk and take time out. Klopp is a world class manager he would easily get another top job.

    Gerrard will get the Liverpool job at some point, I never take the Scottish League seriously Celtic were pretty poor though its still a title on Gerrard's Manager CV.

    If OGS and Arteta can get top jobs i don't see why Stevie G can't get the Liverpool job now ?

    Leeds off target this gw.

    Both Arteta and OGS were brought in under very special circumstances though. The Liverpool situation isn't that desperate. Arsenal's situation was particularly bad at the time Arteta was brought in, and I doubt any quality manager would have sought out that job at all. Gerrard will probably manage Liverpool at some point, but to appoint him now, might be somewhat like Chelsea appointing Lampard - probably a bit too soon.

    A lot of the fans aren't used to losing 6 at home in a row so it's pretty bad.
    If they lose in the CL and don't make the top 4 anything can happen.

    Klopp is overrated as manager when it comes to tactics imo. ? Agree or disagree ?

    Given the recent titles, I don't think Klopp is in any way in risk of losing his job – even without CL. The injury crisis is another factor. The defence they have to play at the moment is far from a top four defence IMO, and I think the fans know that. If anything, I think Klopp will step down from the job himself at some point. He's been linked with the Germany job too.

    As for his tactics, I don't know. I haven't heard many talk about tactics when it comes to Klopp, just that he's known for Gegenpressing.
