Yup this is the sign matt. Go wildcard !!! :D
Oct 25 at 4:44PM
haha im so tempted to WC as well, im just trying to crawl my way to intl break and wc then to prevent any injuries that might occur during the break
Oct 25 at 8:48PM
Personally I don’t think you need to wild card at this point. The only diff between our teams is Benrahma (Mbeumo) & Vardy (Ronaldo); even in terms of overall points we are only a couple points apart. I highly doubt you need to wildcard, specially since Raphinha said he’s fine and we never know Christensen might start if he’s rested during the League cup. Don’t force it just yet; though that’s solely my opinion. If you really are wildcarding; I expect better reasoning than what’s mentioned in the article above ;).
Oct 26 at 6:48AM
Yeah, I’m not convinced either, just the number of issues may end up forcing my hand
Oct 28 at 2:58AM
With all due respect I wasn’t expecting this at all. You still ended up doing it despite agreeing with me specially when Raphinha will be available Sunday and Christensen may start after being rested today.
Oct 26 at 5:16AM
Congrats on another great point haul Matthew!
Between Broja and Hwang which is the better option in terms of value? I’ve already got Hwang but was thinking of getting Broja and save some budget for other future transfers.
Another question is concerning Ramsdale. Should he remain for the relatively tough 3 incoming fixtures? Raya is an option that I’m considering.
Oct 26 at 6:47AM
I don’t know enough about Broja in terms of how nailed on he is, but yeah, he’s cheaper and he’s scored two in two starts, certainly looks another good value option. In terms of Ramsdale, I don’t really like using transfers on keepers unless you’ve literally no other issues
Oct 26 at 3:16PM
Hi Matt, congrats on a bumper gameweek score.
Just wondered why Tielemans isn’t on your Most wanted list, given his excellent returns so far, especially given that he has outscored all your current crop of midfielders with the exception of Benhrahma( who you are looking to ditch anyway) and King Salah and is only 6.4 million.
Oct 27 at 7:33PM
I’m not sure that Tielemans’ scoring is sustainable
Oct 27 at 12:34PM
What about César Azpilicueta, if fit?
Not for me really
Oct 27 at 5:50PM
Any chance of an actual reveal before Saturday afternoon this week?
Oct 27 at 7:34PM
I would think Friday evening after all the press conferences
Oct 28 at 11:39AM
you don’t have any players with rock bottom prices. At first glance you’ll leave a lot of money on your bench. Are you assuming that a lot of your bench players come off each week when your less-guaranteed players like Foden, Chilwell and Cancello don’t play? How often will you need to use 2 or 3 of your bench players?
Oct 28 at 12:19PM
Livramento is rock bottom, or was when I got him, White isn’t far off at 4.4, Broja is only 5.0. Nice to have a decent bench though, Xmas rotation is round the corner?
Oct 29 at 1:9AM
thanks – that makes sense. And I appreciate your reminder that the holidays are really just around the corner – I need to start shopping now (we have supply shortages in the USA) and I need to get my FPL bench in order!
Oct 28 at 6:9PM
hi matt. wasnt aware that broja was in your team, does that mean you are considering him as a replacement for Dennis?
Oct 28 at 6:12PM
no would be the answer to my last question,- just seen he’s injured
Oct 29 at 2:12PM
Yeah, I was, not now. But maybe a good option when he’s back
Oct 29 at 3:24AM
Good luck with the CS… interesting that you haven’t gone with Mount
With all that remaining budget, don’t you think it makes more sense to get a luxury GK (Mendy, Ederson, or Alisson) who will more probably secure much more CSs instead of Sanchez/Foster?
Oct 29 at 7:5AM
He got chilwell who can benefit from CS and attacking return. He also got TAA and Cancelo. Pretty much cover chelsea, man city & Liverpool player. Why should he change the goalkeeper ? The goalkeeper that you mentioned all have 6m ++ price tag. Better to invest in midfield or striker.
Funny you say that Hank
Oct 29 at 3:32PM
Just realized I mistakenly said Good luck with the CS, when I meant to say Good Luck with the WC!
Oct 29 at 2:44PM
Damn Ederson Matt, What about sticking with sanchez and using that 1.5m to upgrade vardy to Kane in gw12?
Oct 29 at 3:38PM
Looks like I’m struggling with my current team to fit in Foden, even Havertz by 0.1m. What’s your opinion on Mount instead of Foden?
Oct 29 at 4:42PM
Can you update us on your late move here matt ? :D
Oct 29 at 4:44PM
I’ll try but sometimes there is news literally minutes before the deadline
Oct 29 at 6:27PM
Thanks MAtthew. Your final commentary (where you posted your thoughts “oh hang on….and then that means “ made me laugh! Comparable to the dilemmas and thought processes that we all go through. All the best for the gameweek! Cheers Simon B
Oct 29 at 6:43PM
Haha thanks and good luck to you
Oct 29 at 7:25PM
does anyone know if ive taken a points hit but then decide to wilcard does the hit remain or get wiped out?
Oct 29 at 7:31PM
Hits get wiped out
Oct 29 at 7:41PM
thanks matt, how much do you have in the bank after your wildcard?
Oct 29 at 9:22PM
Matt, You still haven’t replied to this. As an avid reader who follows you religiously I would appreciate knowing your thought process regarding this: “With all due respect I wasn’t expecting this at all. You still ended up doing it despite agreeing with me specially when Raphinha will be available Sunday and Christensen may start after being rested today.”
Oct 29 at 9:28PM
I just felt it was the right time to freshen things up, I don’t know, just a feeling – you’ve got to use it at some point. I’m not a great believer in making swathes of changes in the first wildcard, unless you’ve let your team get into a state somehow.
Oct 29 at 9:51PM
Yes and purely for those reasons I am
still holding onto it haha. I feel using it might do more damage then good at this point as I am still very happy with the core and nothing a transfer or two can’t fix.
Oct 29 at 10:17PM
But I don’t see your updated team after the WC? Where can I see that?
Oct 29 at 10:12PM
I’ve religiously followed you trying to make some cash at the work fantasy league (currently 5th out of 700!). I’ve not got as much cash as you however, didn’t forsee the foden/vardy transfers so cash flows aren’t the same. Just tried to wildcard and I’m 0.4m short – where do you reckon you’d swap in my position? Cheers mate, keep up the good work
Oct 30 at 9:43AM
Revert to Sanchez keeper I guess, may give you more cash in reserve
Oct 30 at 12:53AM
Final thoughts: A lot of managers have gone with benching Mbeumo as he might start from the bench or come off early in case he starts, any intentions in doing so for your team?
Oct 30 at 1:51AM
Reserve the wildcard! Haven’t changed enough in my eyes.
Oct 30 at 5:58AM
Hi Matt, I’m a bit surprised with the Ederson move. That makes it more difficult to get Kane or Son on gw 12. Any thoughts?
Oct 30 at 9:44AM
I have a couple of ways in mind to get either
Oct 30 at 6:8AM
I like the wildcard as its the same 15 i have except for Ederson Brownhill White and Toney. Getting Toney next week though. Good luck!
Oct 30 at 8:17AM
Hi Matt just interested to know how much do you have left in your bank after wildcarding?
Oct 30 at 9:34AM
Oct 30 at 8:55AM
1 hour to go. Any changed you made to the lineup matt .?
Oct 30 at 9:54AM
6 minutes to go. :D
Oct 30 at 9:6AM
Thanks Matthew, another really enjoyable article. Certainly captures the internal struggle of “do I / don’t I”. A little surprised you’ve gone for Ederson. Didn’t think you were a fan of investing in GK or a fan or changing goalkeeper. Though can see the logic that it’s probably as close to getting an 11th outfield player as you can get as he can get the odd assist in a season. Just makes it harder to switch to a Son / Kane for GW 12 – though Spurs and Kane still haven’t shown form yet and there’s no guarantee that switch will flick in the next few weeks. I’m leaning more towards investing in Mount and keeping Sanchez though still debating as the clock ticks down!!! Do I or don’t I! Best of luck with the gameweek! Cheers
Oct 30 at 9:35AM
I’ve got a couple of options in mind to get Son or Kane, although Spurs would need to show something first.
