    When I finally put James on my bench, he actually plays 90 mins and gets a clean sheet…

    I dont care what anyone says, so much of FPL is down to luck.

    Can't disagree with that. When you think about the number of situations that must go your way, there's no doubt a big amount of that which is purely down to luck. In FPL, you spend time trying to figure out how to put your team in a position to benefit from likely outcomes. But to get those really good overall ranks, you need the element of luck as well.

    Salah (C) with a disallowed goal, and a 4 point score in the end. I'm really not getting anything right this season so far!

    It sure is down to luck.
    Salah hit the post too.

    I know… :(

    Been working all weekend though seems most have not had good GW's. Son and Kane to go for me, any one of them getting a haul will hurt having captained Salah.

    Son goal late in the game, hoping Kane blanks for the remainder lol
    Edited: Kane with the assist
    Edited: Now the assist has been taken of Kane on the FPL app

    I see Kane got the assist in the end (on FPL), they certainly are the dynamic due for Spurs, I will hang onto them a while longer, the next two fixtures a good then its 3 tough games.
    ---
    Made one Free Transfer, now I have the 3 current best strikers in the game as my front 3. They will all blank next GW I bet lol

    There are 2 players I want in though not sure I can justify a -8 to do so, as the players they will replace could match them this GW. Would be a bit of a side ways move.

    Dam had to deal with something and missed deadline just seen Rodriguez is out, oh well Klitch to come in.

    That looks like a decision that's best to leave for another gameweek, IMO! Could easily backfire.

    I've been in so much doubt what to do this gameweek, so I've decided to make things easy for myself, and do absolutely nothing. The team is identical to last gameweek, only with James in the starting eleven instead of Lamptey. I'm not expecting many points from this team, but I feel the two free transfers leaves me in a better spot for next weekend.

    I was going to go Rodriguez (who is definitely out now) and Grealish < Rashford and Foden

    Well, depending on your bench options, you could almost have called that -8 move a -4 with Rodriguez not playing. But it would have been risky even so.

    Probably not the best week to take hits either, United still got a few awkward fixtures. I can see a draw v Arsenal at the weekend.

    It feels like a tricky week for transfers, that's for sure.
    I think United are in much better form, and can't see Arsenal being that much of a threat really.

    Saïss benched. Should probably have made a transfer anyway…

    Here are the gameweek 7 captaincy picks!
    Salah: 5
    Son: 5
    Kane: 4
    Keane: 1
    Martial: 1
    Werner: 1
    Mané: 1

    With decent fixtures for both teams, it's no surprise to see Salah, Son and Kane being the most captained players in our league this weekend, with five managers backing the first two for points, and four managers hoping Kane will deliver.

    Good luck everyone!

    Mitchell is not in the Palace squad at all, is he? Lamptey will come on for me, by the looks of things – unless Saïss gets a cameo.

    Doesn't look promising for Lascelles…



    Saïss is likely one of my transfers next gameweek. A 5.0 and above player needs to feature every gameweek. Podence is another player I'm looking to replace. I need to make an additional transfer to upgrade Podence though, so I'm already looking at a -4.

    Agreed on Sais at that price he needs to be a starter, I am reluctant to use hits on defenders though may not have an option.

    I think it depends on how you approach the transfers. Usually it's best to avoid using hits on defenders - especially this season, as points are so unpredictable. But if you're able to do a significant upgrade and/or have a long term plan with the transfers, it might pay off. It really depends on the state of your current team.

    I see Podence delivered. Having a poor defense this week not too bothered, as if I took a hit no guarantee I would get clean sheets

    Yes, finally! Won't expect him to do so very often though.

    Indeed, no defence looks like a clean sheet guarantee so far this season, so you probably did right not taking hits.

    Yeah just checked Mitchel nowhere, so praying on Lascelles or Sais to come on and get a goal or assist lol

    Doesn't look promising for Lascelles…



    Saïss is likely one of my transfers next gameweek. A 5.0 and above player needs to feature every gameweek. Podence is another player I'm looking to replace. I need to make an additional transfer to upgrade Podence though, so I'm already looking at a -4.

    Agreed on Sais at that price he needs to be a starter, I am reluctant to use hits on defenders though may not have an option.

    I think it depends on how you approach the transfers. Usually it's best to avoid using hits on defenders - especially this season, as points are so unpredictable. But if you're able to do a significant upgrade and/or have a long term plan with the transfers, it might pay off. It really depends on the state of your current team.

    I see Podence delivered. Having a poor defense this week not too bothered, as if I took a hit no guarantee I would get clean sheets

    Yes, finally! Won't expect him to do so very often though.

    Indeed, no defence looks like a clean sheet guarantee so far this season, so you probably did right not taking hits.

    Just been looking at defense options with up coming fixtures no one really is appealing.

    Watching Liverpool game desperately need something from Robertson and Salah having a terrible GW so far.

    There are 2 players I want in though not sure I can justify a -8 to do so, as the players they will replace could match them this GW. Would be a bit of a side ways move.

    That looks like a decision that's best to leave for another gameweek, IMO! Could easily backfire.

    I've been in so much doubt what to do this gameweek, so I've decided to make things easy for myself, and do absolutely nothing. The team is identical to last gameweek, only with James in the starting eleven instead of Lamptey. I'm not expecting many points from this team, but I feel the two free transfers leaves me in a better spot for next weekend.

    I was going to go Rodriguez (who is definitely out now) and Grealish < Rashford and Foden

    Well, depending on your bench options, you could almost have called that -8 move a -4 with Rodriguez not playing. But it would have been risky even so.

    Probably not the best week to take hits either, United still got a few awkward fixtures. I can see a draw v Arsenal at the weekend.

    It feels like a tricky week for transfers, that's for sure.
    I think United are in much better form, and can't see Arsenal being that much of a threat really.

    Saïss benched. Should probably have made a transfer anyway…

    My defence is in trouble as Lascelles is out and I have Sais and mitchel is a doubt I may only have 2 defenders :)), Taylor to come in thats it

    Mitchell is not in the Palace squad at all, isn't he? Lamptey will come on for me, by the looks of things – unless Saïss gets a cameo.

    Tell me about it! I have to look at Saïss options, but there are few appealing options out there. Might have to just find a cheap option and push some funds into midfield.

    Podence (finally) and James have delivered for me so far, and at my overall rank I desperately needed them to! Like you, I'm relying on Salah to deliver, but I fear that the two Sp*rs guys will outscore him…

    Yes, there's definitely a case for going cheap, or semi-cheap with a 5.0-something defender as the most expensive option. Many (top) managers dropped Alexander-Arnold before this gameweek, it looks like.

    Agree, and at those prices you have to consider if cheaper options will be better.

    I had a feeling he'd miss that pen, but luckily it went in! And yes, a really nice tribute that.
