    well 45 points for me this week worst so far this season, I may get a bonus point or two

    You can check that by clicking on the games and results below the field showing the team you played. I think the bonus points have been calculated for all games but the Norwich-City one.

    Cheers I will have a look, I dont think City lost because of Laporte I think losing Kompany and not replacing him his gonna hurt them big time

    Agree. Losing Laporte is one thing, but not addressing the fact that Kompany left is just strange. This might be a massive result as far as the PL season goes.
    Salah has second highest score from today behind Mane does that mean Salah gets 2 points?

    Yes! The score in the brackets is the Bonus Points System (BPS), which decides the bonus points given after the matches. Highest score equals 3 bonus points, then two and one.

    The final Norwich-City BPS's will be calculated soon I guess.

    Norwich been processed Pukki with 3 bonus, Salah will give me 4 bonus as he is my captain and I have another bonus point so should get 53 points if I have calculated correctly I will take that after so many dud players this week

    Much better than how I've been doing! Looks like I'm on 40 points after bonus points.
    Pukki (39)
    Buendía (39)

    two with same points how will that be calculated?

    Both will get 3 bonus points, I believe (and City's Rodrigo one).

    Mount will get two bonus also so not too bad, I think its been a bad few weeks for some premium players, scores again won't be high, I am just relieved I picked Salah as Captain I was fearing Sterling to go goal crazy today

    Forgot about Mount – that makes it 42 for me after bonus points.

    Really regret captaining Sterling over Salah today. Neither were particularly involved, but Salah came out of the match with a goal (and bonus points). Hope there won't be too much of a red arrow, but I won't be surprised to fall out of the top million.

    As for premium players, it sure hasn't been too many returns. When that happens, it's the cheaper players (and/or lesser owned ones) that make the most difference; like Abraham, Pukki, Buendia, etc.

    I went for Salah as I thought pep Roulette would possibly feature, so in the end especially after blanking three captains in a row I went for Salah as playing at home and rested over the international break was the safe option.

    That was the correct decision in the end! I couldn't look past Norwich's lack of available defenders when picking Sterling.

    To be honest many FPL channels and media were constantly going on about Norwich defence, suggesting City would win by the biggest premiership score ever. I try to block stuff like that out, much the same as I blocked jumping too heavily on the Bournemouth train prior to GW1. The media talk alot of cr@p :)) football is never that straight forward I try to go with my gut

    It's easy to fall for the "trap" of just following what others do and suggest in FPL. You can really only follow your own game. I sometimes follow suggestions and advice given in podcasts and elsewhere, but that's mostly to seek out information from games I haven't watched and/or players I haven't seen in action. After watching Sterling in the international break, I was sure he'd get something from the Norwich game. I think he hit the post at one point?

    There is some great advice or rather information on the FPL channels, though a few I don't trust there judgement. Some certainly do expert research though don't do particularly well themselves.

    To be honest I am just doing the oposite of what I did in my debut season, no knee jerk reactions

    I think the start to this season has been particularly difficult, so rankings will be all over the place – even for the experts. As long as they give good reasoning for their choices and suggestions, I take them into consideration. That includes stuff like expected goals, chances created and things like that. Stats don't give the complete picture though, so that's where gut feeling and watching games yourself comes to play. If a player looks decent in games and have good stats, that makes the player one to watch or pick.

    Knee jerk reactions is a natural thing in this game, I think. Resisting doing so is what often makes the difference long term.

    True its still early days though there are some FPL advisors that last season did not do great, so I am wary. There is one channel that I rarely watch now as the guy is so bland and uninspiring lol

    Just watching highlights, week after next I think Son is on the cards for me, he looked very sharp, I can't get him in this week as not willing to lose KDB, Sterling or Salah

    The quality of the FPL content and those presenting it can definitely vary! I usually watch the stuff from Fantasy Football Scout, as they really dig into stats, etc.

    Son is in consideration for me too. Have no way of getting him in at the moment, so it might be something I have to wait for until I use the wildcard.

    I jinxed myself mentioning Bournemouth players yesterday, Everton struggling in defense and attack still

    Great win for Bournemouth, but I only had Digne in that fixture…
  • I had a hunch Aubameyang would deliver good FPL points today, glad Arsenal drew that makes 5 teams all on 8 points and only 2 points behind City, Liverpool 5 points further ahead interesting

    Not happy myself, for obvious reasons! I think this is an Arsenal team that won't compete for the top six.

    To be honest taking Liverpool and City out of the equation the teams in joint 3rd are pretty much as unreliable as the next. Arsenal could easily get top four as the other teams will falter just as much, Spurs are the only one I think that could possibly do better if they can get there act together

    I think it will be City and Liverpool fighting for the title, Sp*rs predictably taking third, then a fight between Chelsea, United and Leicester for the next three places. Arsenal have plenty of performances like this each season, unfortunately.
  • Some knee Jerk reactions to this GW, one FPL streamer dumping Salah and Sterling crazy. I see a pattern in some FPL managers which I fell into last year, if a group of players do well one week they expect the same returns to following week so take hits to get them in, that rarely happens only a few players may do that.

    Which FPL streamer is that?

    I have to admit feeling tempted by dropping Salah for Mané. I think Mané has looked better so far, and that extra million will do a lot for the team overall. Still a risky decision though.

    FPL Elite he took a 16 point hit

    I am sticking with Salah and Sterling, in fact I may get Mane in to add to those two, most likely after the Chelsea game

    Never heard about that stream, actually. Only watch Fantasy Football Scout, Let's Talk FPL, FPL Family (occasionally) and Fantasy TV PL med DobbTV (Swedish stream/videos) – as well as FPL Tips and FPL TV (both just posting weekly transfer videos and other similarly short videos). I also listen to a few FPL podcasts throughout the week, but those are all in Norwegian.

    If I had a way to have all three of Sterling, Salah and Mané, then I'd definitely consider that! Can't see how I'm going to do that with my current team, so that will be a wildcard decision.

    Its a relatively new channel they do a lot of content, phone in's and lengthy discussion during match days. Its more laid back and a fun listen.



    They have put a lot of time and effort into the channel and had other FPL content creators on as guests

    Certainly seems like they've put a lot of effort into how the stream looks! Will check them out more next week, but I doubt I'll have time for yet another stream to follow, haha!

    I mainly listen to them when games are on going, so you get the drama from the community as goals go in, also they do a good show called Sunday Surgery where people discuss what things need to be changed with there respective teams. One of the host's was floating around the top Hundred at one point last year very late in the season.

    Doing a stream while the games are going on is a bit different. The streams I follow usually post stuff midweek before the weekend games, so you won't get the team news reactions, goal reactions and stuff like that.

    That's an impressive overall rank at any point of the season! He must have made some good (and/or risky) team selections.

    John Stones out for over a month, the City defence is in bad shape

    Mason Mount injured too now. Haven't read how bad it was or if it's just a minor injury, but I'm sure glad I got two free transfers! Still toying with the idea of playing the wildcard, but the two available transfers might keep me from playing it.

    Haven't had time to check the league scores, so I'll be back with a gameweek winner / league update tomorrow!

    Really I have Mount. I was going to wait till Friday and likely bank the free transfer, will have to see what the situation is after the European games

    Edited: Mount has an ankle injury apparently according to FPL app

    We just have to follow the situation throughout the next 40 something hours, and hope there's news before the Friday night deadline!

    If Mount's injury is short-term my squad can cope with benching him for a week as I have Cantwell who was going to come in and ill just keep Lundstrum in the starting line up

    Really I have Mount. I was going to wait till Friday and likely bank the free transfer, will have to see what the situation is after the European games

    Edited: Mount has an ankle injury apparently according to FPL app

    We just have to follow the situation throughout the next 40 something hours, and hope there's news before the Friday night deadline!

    If Mount's injury is short-term my squad can cope with benching him for a week as I have Cantwell who was going to come in and ill just keep Lundstrum in the starting line up

    Thinking the same. I have other transfers to prioritise, so ideally I would like to avoid taking Mount out this week.

    Apparently Mount injury not very serious, Fantasy says 75% chance of playing. Wan-Bissaka has no warning on Fantasy, but yes James looks bad, sadly I don't have anyone to replace him with. I can sub in Azpi or VVD, but I doubt Chelsea nor Liverpool will keep a clean sheet.

    EDIT: I have Hayden for Newcastle vs Brighton. This may be the best subbing option.

    @barryt007 I subbed Mount for Hayden and James for VVD. Hopefully it works fine. I checked again, no injury warning on the FPL site for Wan-Bissaka.

    Yes good thinking.
    I will check my SKY FF to see if there is anything on there about Wan-Bissaka.

    EDIT : Nothing on there either,just Shaw and Bailly for the Man Utd defence,so I presume he must be fit then.
  • Wan Bissaka is fit he was just rested yesterday
