Defensively Red, Offensively Blue

The 2019/20 FPL season is just under a month away, as Liverpool gears up to kick off against a new cream puff up from the Championship. Many are already touting the #ALWAYSCAPTAINSALAH on Twitter, as manager continue to tinker and tweet their RMTs. Doesn’t that get boring? I’ll admit, I just dropped a 15-man squad on Twitter, but I wasn’t looking for anyone to RMT, but an interesting idea that I haven’t seen floated in the FPL community. Does that mean it’s THAT stupid? Let’s see. Continue reading “Defensively Red, Offensively Blue”

FPL Observations

Maybe we should rename this FPL season to WTF? Might be more fitting, as there is been no consistency in this young season after 11 Gameweeks. There has been a great deal of frustration for fantasy managers, just when you think you’ve made a great transfer, they get benched by Pep the following week or don’t return.  It’s been a very difficult year to read and we still have 28 weeks of games to come.
