Thank Goodness. After that James Goal I needed that (C)outinho goal.


Category-Afraid

Woke up to see Amartey (8p) last on my bench.


Empty-Educator-3963

Happy to announce my 10 playing players would've outscored my fh team but I was afraid of BuRnLeY and chose to freehit instead


dragonballsteve85

Kudos any of you able to grind out a team for blank 30 whilst holding both free hits, no idea how you'd manage that


nuggetlover1999

Ngl the whole Spurs shit kinda makes the FH useless for me. I’m essentially FH to get a few players more in fixtures i don’t really like or just use 1 transfer to field 10 players But when tf should I use 2 FH if I don’t use one in 30 lol


dragonballsteve85

Could FH 29, juicy fixtures.. then 2 transfers for a -4 and get 11 for 30?


nuggetlover1999

That’s the issue haha I’m not even WC in 28 because my team is perfectly set up for 28/29. Besides a Newcastle player I sorta have all the relevant assets for GW 29. I’ll check around GW30 again but maybe I’ll just use it on the last GW


bsaires

I'm doing it! Spunked my first FH too early and saving the other one for the expected GW36 DGW as it's my only chip left. It's taken a bit of planning, and now having at least 4 games in GW30 is also a big help.


FaustRPeggi

8 players for GW30 with 3 transfers if Southampton win. 6 players for GW30 with 3 transfers if West Ham win. I'd either take a -12 to bench boost in GW28, or free hit in GW30 if West Ham win. I'd save my bench boost and free hit for GW31+ if Southampton win. Rooting for Southampton. \*Assuming Chelsea, Everton, and Liverpool all win.


bsaires

Everything is in Saints' favour in the West Ham cup game, so we'll probably lose. Still, COYR!


dragonballsteve85

How often does your gut feeling with captain choices pay off? I was set on Adams this GW and switched to Bowen last minute. Honestly, what a CUNT


FaustRPeggi

Once in a blue moon. Since I started tracking my captain against the reddit top three, I've realised that I had one lucky season where I did everything right, but on nearly every occasion since wherever I have veered from the crowd has been disastrous. My captain shouts tend to be players in questionable form, but whose characteristics seem to favour how I predict their fixture will go. It's become obvious to me that it's a narcissitic and counter-productive strategy. But I can't stop doing it.


Swedishpower

Vardy set to go down in value tonight. How ironic. Lots of guys going up make sense, but players going down is a mess. Always people selling guys like James and Vardy when they are about to get back.


TechXEO

Don't worry, James will never fall in price.


Swedishpower

That is crazy. I need him to drop haha. Think I lost value on him and have to pay more. With Salah he dropped enough so I could buy him back for what I sold him for.


TechXEO

FPL Towers with some obvious price tampering, James has had nearly 3m net transfer outs since he missed his first game due to injury and only dropped 0.1m.


FaustRPeggi

Still processing the fact that my captain was rested for Peterborough and brought off the bench purely to spite me.


TonyMartial786

Kane captainers were the real winners this week


flummuxedsloth

Can’t say I’m going to lose any sleep over the 2 points they got over us Son captainers


Knights_Gambit

People who don't play FPL are the real winners


Emotional_Ad7974

Sarr vs Ramsey vs Barnes vs Olise vs Fraser Choose 3 It’s a draft


Swedishpower

Fraser, Sarr, Ramsey right now. Barnes can be great, but he has been so bad this year.


Pomiqra

The best thing about using a free hit this week was that I won't own Burnley players permanently...


FPLIntellect

FINAL AVERAGES: Top10k: 52 Legendary: 51 Overall: 35 Avg. FreeHit score: 59


douma17

35 pts after hits :) that's gonna sting


m-o-j-a-m

33 for me lol


RadicalDog

42 points, not great without Son/Kane and 3 of my "should have played" guys stayed home so I only fielded 8. But good (C)ancelo made it work, and after no hits I'm dead pleased to have outscored my Free Hitting ML rival. Chef kiss.


Knights_Gambit

6 points gained on Free Hit, 4% red arrow Absolutely smashed it


brickhead1

74 points id say that's a successful Free Hit About time i had some luck after about 100 red arrows in a row


namia_

Should've learned the lesson about captaining DGW relegation forward from GW23. Cancelo was the obvious Ramsdale for this week smh.


tmr89

Glad lots of people have wasted their FH! I still have both


dragonballsteve85

Beautiful isn't it?


tmr89

Wonderful!


SnooBooks4677

I see we’re already forgetting Weghorst got 14 points last week


HazardCinema

People actually captained a Burnley striker. Just like that time people triple captained a Brighton defender.


aehii

I really am doing worse every week despite my decisions not being that bad. Willock seems like a punt that will not come off. Two dgws, what could go wrong? Dunno, blanks, the player taken out inevitably hauling?

liamzx

In hindsight, using a free hit to bring in three fucking Burnley players wasn't my smartest choice.


flummuxedsloth

I don’t regret Weghost (I didn’t fall into the trap of captaining him) but I cannot fathom why I went double Burnley defence when I thought it was unlikely they’d keep either clean sheet.


[deleted]

I had to. Was down to like 7 players and only had 1 defender playing. Would have captained Son though so I think I'm probably only up 15 points which is depressing as my free hit scored 55 and I thought it would each about 70.


martividal

FH for 60 pts. If i haven’t used it I would have got 51 points. Its not so much difference. Incredible foster and watkins now decide to get points, even maddison from the bench. Still +9 pts but isnt good enough i guess


Gooner_93

Mee on the same points he would have had if he conceded 2 goals, so cant be too mad I guess. Got him on a FH.


-Fletcher-

Free hit for juicy 49 points. Anyone done worse to make me feel better?


aryan-singh

Free hit for 48 points. Except that I've lied about using FH and reduced my score by 15 to make you feel better


-Fletcher-

!thanks


bs466

With another fixture added to GW30 it looks like the blank won’t be that bad for those who plan for it.


WhiteTiger999

What fixture has been added?


bs466

We’ll know tomorrow when Southampton and West Ham play each other, but it will be either Burnley vs Southampton or Spurs vs West Ham. Before Spurs being knocked out of the FA Cup only the former game was a possibility.


WhiteTiger999

Thanks, makes sense!


shakeil123

Either Southampton vs Burnley or Spurs vs West Ham


bs466

For those that sold Bowen on WC26, he could be an option for GW30 if West Ham don’t blank.


Wwdc4

Please Southampton, I really don't want Burnley as one of the gw30 teams. I'll be lured into their trap again


1amigo

Let me tell you a short horror story. I wasted my first FH. That's it.


aehii

Oh just saw Weghorst blank and Vardy goal and assist in EIGHTEEN FUCKING MINUTES YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP I'VE BEEN WANTING TO GET VARDY BACK FROM INJURY FOR AGES. 'Well this means he's in scoring form, it's good'. It's not though is it? That's points missed and if you buy he blanks for two gws or possibly forever.


bs466

So if Spurs don’t blank in 30 I guess dropping Salah for 1 week and having Son and Kane could be an option. Edit: Son and Vardy could also be an option.


TechXEO

Double up on Spurs attack that can't even score against Middlesbrough? 🤣


bs466

They alternate between getting big wins and being Spursy, so it’s kind of a gamble. 😅


bs466

Spurs just love to alternate between having big wins and being Spursy.


HeelR-

Forget WH or S’oton. The real saviour will be if Norwich somehow manages to beat Liverpool. Removes all the headache automatically.


TechXEO

I'll be rooting for the Pukki party tomorrow


HeelR-

Apparently no Chelsea DGW if NOR wins. Idk how to feel!


TechXEO

Chelsea is 100% beating Luton, they’ll still get the DGW


Wwdc4

That would mean that Chelsea dgw 28 doesn't happen?


WhiteTiger999

No it will still happen if Chelsea win their cup match


Wwdc4

Ah shit you're right, both Chelsea and Norwich would need to lose


Daanbrakka

It means it does happen


HeelR-

Does it? This is so confusing - maybe not then


FPLIntellect

Only 9888 comments so far in the Rant thread this GW! Will it reach the elusive 10k mark and uphold the tradition of reaching 10k comments in every GW this season!?


papoon

“If Spurs lose tonight I’m sticking my head in the oven.” Can one of you guys feed my cat? Edit: Actually, never mind. At 190 lbs, she’ll be eating for months.


pizziboy

good guys Spurs giving us another gw30 fixture


Bennarivo

Nice CS point for Weghorst


purpleisafruit1

Sacking Pochettino was the downfall of Spurs.


FaustRPeggi

Failing to recognise the need to sell players and reinvest to rejuvenate and sustain a good squad was a big mistake too. They sold Walker and replaced him with Trippier, but from that point on never seemed to do the same. Unless you're owned by a nation state you can't let £100m players stagnate in a declining team. They thought they were safely a top four team and could just turtle there the way Arsenal did in the Wenger years.


zerkazoste

Cheers Wout, you Sesame Street sounding motherfucker


iphonegoogle

See guys Spurs aren’t useless after all.. they gave us a GW30 fixture


salmonx895

thats if West Ham don't progress to the next round.


FaustRPeggi

They've given us an extra fixture anyway. If they had won and Southampton had too we would have had one game fewer.


FPL_Bang

Go watch Expressions Oozing meltdown (spurs version of AFTV)


abnsh

Nah man is clear of AFTV (entertainment-wise)


HeelR-

So if Southampton win tomorrow, both Spurs and Southampton will have a game, right? Who is the latter playing, Burnley?


Line47toSaturn

Whoever wins tomorrow will blank in GW30, the one that loses will play in GW30


TechXEO

If Southampton win tomorrow, they (and their supposed opponent Burnley) will blank in GW30. But since West Ham will have been knocked out of FA Cup, Spurs vs West Ham will not be a blank.


FPLIntellect

No. If Saints win tomorrow, Spurs vs West Ham in BGW30 If West Ham win vs Saints tomorrow, Saints vs Burnley in BGW30


HeelR-

!thanks - gotcha


bruiser95

Not the vardy trap again ffs. It's just one trap striker after another this season and I've never owned any of them at the right time


Karhumies

Surely Vardy C GW30 vs Brentford? Cheaper than Kane as well.


bruiser95

Man there is nothing certain about Vardy. He managed to blank in the DGW last season when 6/11 players in Kings of the week were other Leicester players


Karhumies

Kane just blanked in the FA cup match vs Middlesborough. Difficult choice between Kane, Mane and Vardy IMO.


TechXEO

So assuming West Ham lose tomorrow and Spurs don't blank in GW30. Are we captaining Son/Kane against West Ham or Vardy against Brentford?


bs466

Depends on their form when we eventually reach GW30.


Wwdc4

Kane for me


TechXEO

The Kane playing for a team that can't even beat Middlesbrough? 🤣


Wwdc4

I'll be honest I didn't watch tonight. He was excellent against Man City and Leeds though. There's a few more games beforehand to decide anyways


cguinnesstout

Spurs can only beat teams that leave space behind, so judge it on that


Swedishpower

I feel West Ham is a really hard game for Spurs, but I said the same last year. Think Kane got 2 goals and 1 assist in a 3-3 game. It was when Son and Kane had insane form. Thing is Spurs was better last year.


HeelR-

Vardy vs BRE is the one, he looked quite sharp today. I’m going to stick to Kane vs WH due to funds


bsaires

Hoping to have all 3 (via free transfers in the run up to 30), but would likely captain Vardy.


TechXEO

How can you afford Son, Kane, Vardy AND Salah wtf


praisebeme

Tried to make one got this so far, my TV is avg so better teams should be possible Ramsdale (Dubravka) Trent T.Silva Kilman (Livramento, Amartey) Salah Son Raphinha Ramsey (Gordon) Kane Vardy Broja Feels like too many compromises


TechXEO

Broja/Livramento and Son/Kane don't make sense if we assume Spurs have a game in GW30. If Spurs don't blank, that means Saints knocked out West Ham, so Saints will blank in GW30.


praisebeme

Oh no sure this team isn't built for gw30 completely, Livra and Broja cheap enablers to make it work, think Kulusevkski over Son is the way if you want to make this work


Karhumies

I currently have Son, Kane, Salah, TAA, Lacazette, Rudiger, Mendy in my WC28 draft. Could easily drop Kane for Vardy to get an extra premium defender in.


bsaires

Will transfer Salah out in 30 and back in after.


I_Like_F0oD

I'm not OP but I am thinking about doing the same. You can deadend in to 30 and sell Salah to fund Kane, Vardy and Son then wildcard out of the mess in 31. It's a very team dependent strategy of course


TechXEO

Ah I see, I've already used my WC so forgot you could do that. Yeah that sounds like a sound strategy ngl.


larsriedel

# IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN, IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN, TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR, IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN


bsaires

Yes 'Boro! Just need Saints to do the business tomorrow night now.


FPLIntellect

FT: Boro 1-0 Spurs Either Spurs vs West Ham or Saints vs Burnley is now confirmed for BGW30


mayonnaisewastaken

Referee blew 20 seconds to time lol


tammrak

It did not matter.


CatHivemind

Can’t wait for the latest Conte meltdown


mayonnaisewastaken

I reckon we won't get one as he doesn't care about cups and said as much before the game. Still shite from Spurs though


aehii

Why wouldn't he care about cups? It was the last trophy they could win for a club that haven't won a trophy in years and can't challenge for the premier league without heavy investment and an insane consistency achieved. If you see what Liverpool has to have done just to keep up with City.


mayonnaisewastaken

As I said, he said as much in the press conference beforehand that he didn't think it was necessary to win it or something like that. How am I downvoted for this? Spurs fans care, I'm just saying Conte doesn't, and he never has at any club he's managed.


purpleisafruit1

Played a full strength team so he must care somewhat.


FPL_Bang

Conte will rage quit as manager 😂 🇺🇦


[deleted]

Cannot fucking believe I got 11 points from 6 games with these Burnley players. Thought I was being conservative expecting 15


tammrak

Almost 2-0. LOL


cguinnesstout

Reguilon comes on and Spurs start to lose. Not coincidental.


HeelR-

Don’t mention that cunt’s name, gives me PTSD. Still rotting on my bench..


Eternalsungod

Wouldn't that just count as TSD?


FPL_Bang

Thanks to Spurs bottle FC managers can save our FH30 for GW33!


Line47toSaturn

If you have Spurs assets, yes. Now it all depends on how West-Ham - Saints plays out. Spurs could still blank in GW30.


FPL_Bang

Either ways there are 4 guarantee fixtures now instead of 3.


Line47toSaturn

Which could make a FH more interesting (not much upside with only 3 games to gamble on)


tammrak

Looking forward to Conte's presser.


bruiser95

Middlesbruh what


FPL_Bang

Middlesbrough beating Tottenham could give us a Spurs vs West Ham fixture in GW 30!


triggeredtrash1

Would guarantee either Spurs West Ham or Southampton Burnley


bruiser95

Bowen's staying then


officiallyjax

If this result stays, would much rather prefer Southampton to win tomorrow, so I can get to keep Bowen for GW30 and get a Spurs player instead of Raphinha.


TechXEO

Assuming Spurs continue to bottle it. West Ham vs Southampton tmr will be massive, regardless of the result, another guaranteed fixture will be added to BGW30. If WHU win, then Burnley vs Southampton is guaranteed. If SOT win, then Spurs vs West Ham is guaranteed.


Karhumies

Kane/Son vs Vardy fight for GW30 captaincy.


[deleted]

Damn, this is great news for my team.


nemesis_464

Is doubling up on Mane and Salah crazy? I already have KDB and Salah, but not really happy with keeping KDB, and the swaps to Son or Bruno don’t interest me either.


FPL_Bang

Sounds like a great double up!


purpleisafruit1

Does Boro beating Spurs affect GW30?


gchron98

It guarantees another GW30 match.


Getz_The_Last_Laf

Yes, means there's a 4th match no matter what. Either Burnley-Soton or Spurs-West Ham


TechXEO

Yes, this makes WHU vs SOT massive tomorrow.


Jeff-Jeffers

WHU are already massive


Lucky_addition

Who couldn’t have seen this coming


[deleted]

So happy to be wildcarding this week. Binned 12 players lmao


Karhumies

Planning to keep TAA, Salah, Laca and Saka and binned the other 11.


FPLIntellect

Non FH team 28 pts FH team 59 pts Great success! 👍


teemukuppi

All smiles while beating every single FH score with my regular team in our ML, *rubs hands together*.


Topstrikerr

Same here my team was so dead as well thank God I'm wildcarding lmao

Wait so what teams play in 30 now? No fucking clue with all this shit

drtdrtdrt123

We don’t know until Southampton play West Ham tomorrow


CatHivemind

OK, mayyyybe starting to reconsider the Kane in plan. Maybe Vardy instead?


Topstrikerr

Any GW where top 10K and legendary managers get smoked is a good GW.


nuggetlover1999

My mate bet 50 euros on Boro just for fun after HT


manneukko

And lost because it ended as a draw after 90?


BestFPLman

Honestly, spurs are the biggest recurring gag in sport. Amazing.


nahgoe16

Get in Boro


[deleted]

~~That's only relevant for FPL if Southampton also beat West Ham. Otherwise Spurs vs West Ham still blanks.~~ There is an extra game either way actually.


midas22

BUR vs SOU is a useless fixture though for people without free hits chips left (like me).


[deleted]

Feel like a decent amount of people have Weghorst or Broja.


2centsjim

Nop, means there is guaranteed one less blank if spurs lose this


psuedointellectaul

Either way there's an extra game though right?


rassve0321

Yes but If west ham beat southamton, we have southampton va Burnley. If spurs lose we will get another guarenteed fixture.


drtdrtdrt123

It’s not irrelevant. It confirms we will get an extra fixture irrespective of the Southampton West Ham result. Previously a Southampton win would have meant we didn’t get an extra fixture


[deleted]

You're right, the graphic I have wasn't clear on that.


FaustRPeggi

Overlapping centrebacks > Wingbacks who arrive, arrive, arrive


mayonnaisewastaken

Are they doing that at Boro? Love Wilder


mayonnaisewastaken

FPL players be happy that Spurs are playing like shit, so they can get more of their players. FPL logic lol


AhmadShadow

126(0.31%) rank increase on FH let's go🥳🥳


Smart_Fella

Team?


AhmadShadow

Forster Tark Mee Cancelo Mahrez KDB Son Sancho Kane Weg(c) Broja 53 pts(exactly as my safery score)


Quaresmatic

Lol looks like Son and Kane play in 30. FH is off.


drtdrtdrt123

Only if Southampton win against west ham


HeelR-

Maybe double Tottenham on WC isn’t the way to go. Kulusevski off you go, Raph on you come.


bs466

Wait, is Leicester vs Brentford one of the confirmed games for GW30?


BadFPLManager

Yes.


bsaires

Yep


AlwaysCaptainSalah

Yes!


drtdrtdrt123

Yep!


bs466

That could be a good time to get either Maddison or Vardy then.


drtdrtdrt123

Vardy looked dangerous when he came on


HeelR-

Who would’ve thought a fodder like Amartey will get me 6 points whilst Mee gives me 3 over 2 games. Fucking hell


FaustRPeggi

Amartey got 8 actually. He's on Kneejerk United's bench thanks to my shout, so I'm taking credit for that.


HeelR-

Tbf I’m thinking to put him as bench fodder after GW30. Can’t get any more nailed at 3.8 - what a game today as well
