To be honest Jimmy, I found it a bit of a ball ache to get my head around when I first played at the beginning of last season, but got there in the end. Start by downloading the app, get yourself signed up and just ask on here if you need a hand from there. Itís a good laugh

About 10% of teams! He's in 89.4% which is just a silly high number. Next highest is Saka in 60%, then Estupinan and Rashford the only others over 50%.

Probably 90% of that 90% have captained him too. Kinda breaks the game really.

Obviously we've had the pleasure of watching two all time greats, if not the best two ever, in Messi and Ronaldo.  However, I have never seen anyone like Haaland.  Not at their two levels as a "footballer" but beyond anything I have ever seen at scoring.

I think I was the only player not to pick Haaland as captain going by the points tables this morning!

Looks like there are a few, but not many.

Surprised to see KDB was only selected by 16% of teams before the deadline. Was there suspicion that heíd had a poor off season or was carrying a knock?

He was injured in the CL final

Surprised Stones didn't play. I guess with Man City they have such a strong squad its tough to pick players that are going to play week in and week out.

Best thing for FPL would be a long injury for Haaland (doesnt sound like it will be).

Combine that with Salah/Son and others off on international duty for most of January it will make team selection a bit more interesting as there doesn't seem to be much variation in teams. The likes of Haaland, Salah, Son, Saka, Watkins, Tripper, etc must have pretty high ownership %

Yeah this is the main reason I lose interest every year, there just ends up being a "right" team and 80% of players have 80% the same team. The FPL Draft idea is better, but the scoring is so top heavy that basically whoever gets the first pick wins unless they're an idiot.

I'd quite like a league ban list, where you make everyone choose a squad that *doesn't* have Haaland, Salah and so on.


Title: Re: FPL League
Post by: Pericardinho on Monday, December 11, 2023, 17:33:03
This is so true.

I wanted to make a draft without Haaland. As it sounded a lot of fun having all that spare money to invest elsewhere.

But you can't, as he'll randomly score 4 at home one week and then you've lost right there on the spot.


Title: Re: FPL League
Post by: Qunk on Monday, December 11, 2023, 18:35:39
Iíve been Haaland-less for a good few weeks. Itís not hit me particularly hard as Iíve spent the funds on what should be on paper a very strong midfield and itís allowed me to play Darwin, Watkins and Jackson up front, which should bring a lot of points but in reality, hasnít. And my smug-ness kicked me upside the head yesterday as I thought Iíd be well top of my respective leagues given most other people (such as Tans) had captained or played Haaland. As it happens my midfield misfired and I only ended up two points above the average. I deserved that.

Yep missed out on a top 5K performance as Bruno got subbed 59th minute but otherwise really happy! Took some money home in a couple of mini leagues too

Fair play that's a hell of a performance.
