How I went from 1 MILLION to 23k in 7 weeks in #FPL

If your interested read on, if not no worries.
#GW1 “A strategy in place”

Kept an eye on preseason games & formulated what I thought was a solid strategy based on players form from last season (BIG mistake)

Decent start with 68 pts
#GW2 to #GW8 “Abandoned Strategy”

The World Cup with late returns, lack of fitness, PL team selection chaos played havoc on my #FPL team.

Time for a re-think & major surgery.
I started...

Paying close attention to

👏 for their thoughts, opinions & ideas on players.
I stopped...

Over analysing
Over thinking
Chasing price rises, playing my WC early & taking hits (as per previous seasons).

I took 2 hits to steady the ship while planning a new strategy.
#GW9 “Rolled the Dice”

Played my WC

I had Salah since GW1 but he was not returning & everyone was on the #Hazard bandwagon so made the switch BUT only as a 1 week temporary measure. Planned to bring him back for CAR game.

OR 960,575
#GW10 “Class is permanent”

Brought #Salah back as © (30 pts). Only 6 pts from my FOR line but my DEF & MID came up trumps, 81 pts for the GW.

Mood was lifting, time to concentrate, read the form, pick the fixtures & spend time on 👮‍♂️ picks.

OR 592,107
#GW11 “Form over fixtures”

Sometimes Form & Fixtures can prove to be a double whammy.

SOU were not in good shape, visiting the Etihad so only one © in the equation, Aguero (26 pts)

OR 338,809
#GW12 “Bottom team playing away”

FUL visited Anfield, enough said. Salah (16 pts)

OR 239,780
#GW13 “Invest the time on your ©”

A difficult week for the © pick, all the suspects were playing away but looking at previous history I sensed City would get a good result at the Hammers. Aguero’s away Form was poor so Sterling it is (32 pts)

OR 110,852
#GW14 “A stroke of luck”

#Aguero © but #Sterling (18pts) got the armband due to the auto-sub

OR 77,058
#GW15 “Go with your gut”

Initially had #Richarlison as © but bottled it, choose Salah (8pts instead of 20).

Missed opportunity, could have climbed higher😡
#GW15 extra

Felt Anderson was starting to show Form, wanted him but had Sterling, Salah, Richarlison & Billing (Bench Fodder) I had to reluctantly say 👋 to Fraser (might be back with next plan).

Fraser bagged 12 🆚 2 for Anderson. Keep calm, there is a plan.

OR 67,218
#GW16 “Bandwagons”

#FPLbandwagons can be good #Doherty #Richarlison #Jimenez

But bandwagons can be bad #Kane #Auba (in any one GW) but if part of a new plan then a one week hit is part of the game. Keep your plan intact.
#GW16 extra

Everyone was dumping Kun for Auba but I wanted to start rolling my FT for the festive period. Held firm & Salah © (42 pts) helped 👊

OR 23,636
#GW17 Part 1: “The ITB Factor”

Wilson & Kun (inj) meant I could be badly disadvantaged.

With 0 ITB offloading Wilson would make it difficult to bring him back. Remaining stubborn on Kun, he is now a differential.
Hold firm I thought, then the TAA news sealed my move.
#GW17 Part 2: “Plan, plan & plan again”

The Fraser (out) & Anderson (in) in #GW15 has returned +6pts

The Pat (out) & Fab (in) in #GW15 also returned +6pts

Current OR 17,547

Getting on a transatlantic ✈️, 2moro is another day.

🔃 #FPLCommmunity
#GW17 Part 3: “I made a mistake”

Dealing with a 1st in 10 yrs of #FPL ie potentially not using a FT😱Luckily TAA forced my hand but I didn’t think it through properly.

I choose Kola😡

Time to go Rogue, a rethink & a potential move to 3-5-2!!!

🌍 OR 20,561
#GW18 “20LEgend is back😎”

A week dominated by #MUFC , @FPL_Partridge ‘s xlnt video👋 , return of OGS, & the reemergence of Utd assets.

Having the team name 20LEgend since day1 of #FPL it’s ironic that Ole could pose me problems with my forward planning.

🌍OR 41,640
#GW19 “Choppy Waters”

RPPM stat said dump Alonso, Raz & Kun but plan (Mo, 3-5-2, doubleDEF LIV) says keep Kun. So other 2 under?

Pre season ⚽️ = 💯 K by GW19 & all 🍟 intact for an attack on 10k.

Despite 2 poor GWs spirits still high.
🌍 OR = 64,794
#RogueTBC #FPLCommmunity
#GW20 “Keep calm & carry on”

After 2 🔻’s, went back 2 the principals that got me here. Long term planning.

Despite facing the torrent that is Pogwagon I progressed ✅ Need 4 moves 2 get Pogba but only want to release 2! Keeping the faith

OR 🌍 55,478
#RogueTBC #FPLCommmunity
#GW21 “ Resistance is futile”

Sooner or later you will be knocked out of the #FPL cup by someone from 🇳🇴. A fact of life😂

Lots of early WC talk. I used it in GW23 last yr & it helped immensely but I c no need yet, in my position. Despite the slip

Current🌍 OR 84,536
#GW22 “Dead Premiums!”

1 GW is not a trend but it’s starting to be a strong statement for:

📌 Offloading premium FORs
Other than Jesus & Long the hot property Rashford lies in 24th position for Round Score!
📌 Investing in UTD defence (DDG master class).

🌍 OR 91,871
#GW23 “The Usual Suspects”

Would return in 3 from 4 GWs b4 but now it’s 1 from 4!!!

This inconsistency & cheap “Template” can cause havoc on your rank.

Currently hitting 60+ weekly but still seeing red. Holding my WC but time to cull a few suspects🤔

🌍 OR 96,591
#GW24 “Live & die by ”

The Template.....was killing my rank lately with only 6 in my squad but my differentials & Lady Luck in Brooks came through🕺🕺.

Digne 🔴, City loss, use of 🍟 (others) this week & #GW25, plays into the hands of long term plans.

🌍 OR 51,951
#GW25 “Gamechanger”

Do we overcook the stats instead of 👀 the games on #MOTD ?

A certain no.10 caught my eye v NEW, looked sharp, hungry & fit.

© material I thought🤔 hell NO!

Triple ©, go for it man....he’s on 🔥 & the rest is #DGW25 history🕺🕺

🌍 OR 13,655
#GW26 “Lightening struck twice”

In the same vein that City needed a win v ARS, I (wrongly) applied that logic to my © choice this week. LIV won but not sure Salah read the script😱

A lesson in Form over Fixture🙋‍♂️

A small 🔺 but at least I own #Aguero😎

🌍 OR 15,195
#GW27 “A write off”

What’s to remember about 27, Gerry D’s hatty, the © no shows & the 649,955 who ©’d Aguero🤷🏻‍♂️

I take 2 positive’s from a tortuous GW, my planning for the next minefield has begun. Not many times will you get a green arrow with 43pts👍

🌍 OR 14,178
#GW28 “Siggy played guitar ”

jamming good with Seamus & Dom.

Don’t expect 2 get all your gut feelings onboard (Vardy✅ Mane❌) & b wary of false dawns (City riot, Aguero mins etc ) but don’t despair.

10 weeks out & 💯 pt deltas are still achievable👊

🌍 OR 15,512
#GW29 “A coin toss”

Had earmarked Pogba or Jiménez as #FPL ©

H2H Form in last 3
📌Pogba ⚽️⚽️ 🅰️ : ✅
📌Jiménez ⚽️ : ❌

H2H Stats
📍SOU = MUN bogey team: ❌
📍Jiménez 7/10 ⚽️ at H: ✅

Form over Fixtures, golden rule THEY say, so Pogba it was & 2.5k🔻
