    Just noticed next transfer deadline is March 20th even though there won't be a game in GW31. I have two transfers again as GW30 deadline passed, so I am guessing if I don't use a transfer by 1900 on March 20th I will lose a transfer?

    Yes, that seems to be the case (this tweet is from yesterday):


    I now have two free transfers available as well, and I might use one of them to bring in a player I could use going forward. Obviously we don't know how the rest of the season will look like now, so I really don't know how to approach any transfer decisions.

    True though despite the current climate FPL is a current distraction, and spending a few hours looking at how to reshape my team will use up time, I really am bored stuck in doors lol

    It's a great distraction, so I will no doubt spend a few hour myself doing a bit of planning! I guess Fantasy Football Scout will continue publishing some content while this is going on, so that might be work keeping an eye out for.

    Yeah a few FPL channels I follow on Youtube have been posting videos, even if its just random football chat its better than nothing.

    It certainly is. I guess we might see a bit less content, but the channels that put out the most content will probably find some stuff to talk about; maybe chip strategies if we get more double gameweeks etc.

    Just used my two free transfers before Fridays deadline, I am kinda planning for April 18th on a hunch, I have got Deeney and Calvert Lewin in, replacing Ings and Vardy, got 4.2m in bank to improve my keeper situation later for the Bench Boost Chip.

    Looks like decent moves! I will have to make a transfer before the upcoming deadline, but I have still no idea what to do…

    I was just about to give this a watch. Will be interesting to see how much content Fantasy Football Scout and others are able to make with the league postponed even further.

    YouTube has been a blessing keeping me engaged in other things that are a distraction, I watch the main update on the state of things globally at the end of the day that's it.

    Regarding moves its gives us the opportunity to reshape team if needed, though I will likely transfer someone in to transfer out in few weeks to use transfers up :))

    Seriously though I wonder if FPL will change things and provisionally have all the time up to end of April as one GW.

    Same here; new and old content is great right now, on Youtube and elsewhere.

    I too wonder if FPL will look at changing things, or if it's difficult to do so in the middle of the season. The best thing for us all to do as far as FPL goes, is to do as little as possible while awaiting news (the occasional transfer aside, if needed).

    La Liga's 2 weeks suspension has just been extended indefinitely. Is this what to expect from other leagues across Europe?

    Would think so. PL is only to resume in May, but I wouldn't be surprise to see them do the same as La Liga.

    I forgot the last gameweek deadline, and burned a transfer as a result of it (and gained a little bit of rank). Might have a look at the team and do a transfer before the Saturday deadline.

    I do feel the same re. transfers. I won't do any big changes to my team in this period, because we don't know how the rest of the season will look like. We also don't know what kind of form the teams are in when all this is over, and as there's been such a long gap between games, you can't really trust all the stats either…

    True my tweeks are really to use a bench boost soon as a GW happens, then that chip is done. It's blind planning though gives me something FPL related to focus on.

    Blind planning is better than no planning! I think my strategy (if I can even call it that), is to look at which transfers I would have made before the PL postponement, do those transfers (or maybe a couple of them), and make sure to have two free transfers when it all kicks off again.

    I suppose with so many transfers available, we could plan for provisional restarts then re plan when/if dates are moved again.

    Yes, it's tricky, but possible. We can target the gameweeks that are still scheduled (36-38). The question is, how will these postponed fixtures be rescheduled?

    I think they are one of few channels (and sites) that have a few people working for it full-time/part-time, so they no doubt have a reason to keep providing content during this period.

    I recall Andy saying he was now full time and left his previous job working with Electronic Arts.

    I remember that. Quite the step going from Electronic Arts to a full-time FPL content provider! I imagine fantasyfootballscout.co.uk makes quite a bit of money from their subscription service.

    Football Scout is great I only watch the videos not bothered with the site/ discourd etc. I like info though not too much info, rather not have my mind cluttered with too many other opinions lol

    Hahaha, I like to keep it simple too! I might try the subscription service at some point, depending on if the first prize in the money league I'm in will be increased. For this season, each manager chipped in around £10 each, with a monthly and overall winner prize.

    Just got Rashford back in as he is due back May 17th, if this season does at some point resume he could do well if he recapture his previous form.
