#FPL is a game of decisions.

How much time do we spend thinking about the quality of those decisions?

Here's a {thread} taking a look at some of the factors at play.

Identifying the problem

This might be under-performing players, fixture swings, inflexible team structure or a host of other common issues. The first question is likely to be 'Is this actually a problem at all?' It's often the case in FPL (& fantasy games generally)...

...that we don't have enough data to be sure. Simply put, the sample size is too small to draw conclusions. We often feel like we have to make moves to keep up with the pack. Classic FOMO. As a result we end up over-managing our teams & wasting transfers.

5 (UN)CONVENTIONAL TIPS TO KICKSTART #FPL SEASON 2019/20 - thread

Just what nobody asked for, another thread on tips before the start of the season, huh? Well, take it less as a tips post and more as a I-need-to-remind-myself-where-I-usually-f***-up kind of post. 😜 (Post #1)
For the next 5 days, I will be posting one tip every day that helps me steer away from trouble (for the most part). I have these 5 on repeat. Otherwise, the season will end up in tears before it even starts. So, here it goes - tip #1. (Post #2)
TIP #1

START STRONG.

I know, what a stupid thing to say, right? But hear me out. It's so hard to claw your way back after a poor start to the season, isn't it? We've all been there - thinking we are smarter than everyone else & trying to outsmart everyone. (1/3)

Yesterday we once again witnessed another tactical masterclass by Ole. He really had a solid game plan which arsenal couldn’t respond to. #MUFC.
The first real tactical switch he made was deploying Lingard as a false 9 and Lukaku on the right-wing. Lingard was quite brilliant in that role and Lukaku was even better on the wing as he played to exquisite passes for the first-goals. #MUFC
Another thing Solskjaer did yesterday was to always leave his three attackers up the field. Yesterday #MUFC gave a clear case study of how to use the counter-attack. It was reminiscent of the times we’ve gone to the Emirates (09-10) and destroyed with the same game plan.

One cunning item not mentioned by the #EPL in changing the distibution of overseas TV rights is the impact on lower league clubs. Previously they've had a % of the equal share but not the merit share of PL TV income. Under proposals some overseas TV income becomes merit (1/2)
This means any increase in overseas rights will result in clubs in Championship, League 1 and League 2 getting nothing and it is all kept by the PL clubs. For a club such as Accrington in L1 a £1bn annual increase in overseas would have meant an extra £473k a year. now it is FA
So when John Henry talks about being unhappy at Liverpool 'subsidising' other clubs, he means that all 20 PL clubs want share a £1,000,000,000 pa increase so likes of Preston, Stanley, Morecambe etc. do not receive anything. After all, £473,000 out of a billion is a lot isn't it?
