    Quite likely that Ibra and Aguero could both have blanks GW26 and 28


    Using transfers to switch from Ibra to Lukaku works well.

    Gw 25: Ibra - WAT (Luk - mid)
    Gw 26: Luk - SUN (Ibra - blank)
    Gw27: Ibra- BOU (Luk - tot)
    Gw28: Luk - WBA (Ibra - blank)

    That's a lot of transfers to use on just two players though when you might not be able to field 11 either of those weeks.

    Interesting point from the spreadsheet guy...@bencrellin

    Everton & West Ham won't have any Blanks or DGWs this season (unless a fixture of theirs is called off due to snow or some other reason).

    They and their opponents in Gameweeks 26, 28 & 34 are all out of both domestic cups.

    Yoshida starts again tonight
    Played last few league games
    And fonte won't be picked again apparently

    At least ye won't be tempted to TC Lukaku or Andy Carroll, the crazy punts that they were last season.....:D

    Southampton close to signing Sahko from Liverpool. They'll sign a new CB of some description for sure.

    Wildcard or not Yoshida would be a shortsighted move IMO.


    **cough** Cedric **cough cough** :)

    Cedric is the epitome of disappointment


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,814 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Cedric is the epitome of disappointment

    He burst through on goal tonight
    2 choices
    Shoot across the keeper or try and square it to the striker in the 6 yard box
    He chose option 3
    Shoot wildly wide on the near side
    It was then I realised why he has NO attacking points this season
    All .fart no **** I believe is the expression :D

    Oh how orgasmic it'll be when he delivers a goal and a CS to those who kept faith....

    2 more PL sides safely through in the cup. Edging toward a major blank in 28. Up to 7 blanks possible.

    The google spreadsheet is updated and according to their odds "If the bookies' favourites (the Top 6 plus Leicester & Boro) all reach the FA Cup Quarter Finals, we'll get 7 Blanks in Gameweek 28."

    Hopefully Hull get knocked out. Swansea at home that week so Robertson/Snodgrass/Hernandez could be good one week punts.

    If I stay in form and the gaffer gets us playing well, I think I could be more than just a good one week punt! I'm cheap too (FPL cheap)

    :D

    Yeah in my opinion chances are there will be 7 blanks unless there are some big shocks.

    So the games on that weekend will be:

    Everton v WBA
    Bou v West Ham

    and probably one of:
    Hull v Swansea or
    Man City v Stoke

    Other than that you've got easy looking home draws for Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, United and Boro against lower league opposition and you would expect at least one of Arsenal/Leicester to progress with their trickier ties.

    Although is the gameweek have been saying that there is a space for fixtures in the following midweek meaning the games will stay in gw28?

    There is another fa cup round the last 16 before the blank. There are european games the midweek after gw 28.

    Could be worse, could be beating off a dead horse.

    How much attention should we be paying to the GW26 blanks? I've 2 United players and will have 2 Arsenal if I get Giroud. Should their games be blanking that week I'll be looking at a large hole in the team. It's even hard to cut them down as we approach the gameweek because they have decent fixtures. Should we consider not getting new United and Arsenal players and the teams they are playing?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,022 ✭✭✭✭ Iused2likebusts


    I think you need a squad of 15 that all play and it helps if you have a strong front 8 in and around the blanks.

    Yeah. Even I'm moving to a strong front 8 most likely. :)

    The update on Mon 30th to the calendar blank/double predictor spreadsheet will be your friend. Gw23 begins next day!

    So wait what teams might likely blank gw26?

    Utd and City almost certainly.

    And either Southampton/Arsenal or Liverpool/Leicester

    When are we thinking is best week for wildcard followed by BB DGW?

    I inadvertently only have 3 from those 6. Everything's coming up milhouse


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,955 ✭✭✭ klopparama


    Current plan is to use my FT's to bulk up on Everton, West Brom and West Ham players with an eye on GW 26&28 and then WC in GW 29 or 30 for the run-in.

    Hi all,
    As this is my first season I'm a bit unsure about the dgw situation.
    Ive a very settled team and have had an amazing 5 or 6 weeks I'm now up at 156,000.
    I still have my triple captain chip and haven't used the wildcard yet and have two free transfers.

    This is my current squad

    forster / schmeichel

    Alonso / Jones / clyne / brunt/ walker

    Alli/ stanislas / sanchez / phillips / zaha

    Kane / Carroll / giroud /

    So what ive heard there are some weeks where certain teams will play twice,
    so it would makes since to double or triple up on those teams?

    Opinions on when best to use wildcard, triple capt etc would be great,
    Thanks

    If you're happy with your team a strategy commonly used is to use the wildcard the GW before the DGW to get DGW players in and then a) use the BB chip or b) TC chip the DGW

    * you cannot use two chips in a single GW (wildcardis a chip)
