One of the positive aspects of FPL is being able to have multiple teams. Can you tell I never plan on actually winning the game? Okay, so it’s “my son’s team” that I manage, just to make sure I am playing fair and by the rules. While my 6thGoal failed miserably, I did take consolation in having a second team. Unfortunately, when it rains, its a fucking typhoon! While I pride this team on the 5-man defense, it was the first week that saw Sergio Reguilon not putting my team into a 4-4-2.

As promoted by Josh and Brandon, the “cheaters” of Always Cheating, “set your bus team.” Meaning, if you get hit by a bus, at least you have a team set for the upcoming FPL games. Morbid as it may seen, it’s a good practice to follow, as I was caught by the New Year’s Day deadline and forget set my team for Gameweek 22. However, it worked out and I scored 64 points and a green arrow.
