    And so the battle begins for the lowest team ID :P

    I had 392 last year which I'm both proud and embarrassed of.

    Apparently first weekend fixtures are

    Fulham v Newcastle
    Leicster v Watford
    Wolves v Chelsea
    Arsenal v Brighton
    Man city v everton
    Burnley v spurs
    Liverpool v west ham
    Bournemouth v Cardiff
    Huddersfield v palace
    Southampton v man utd

    Not fantastic for a GW1 BB and early WC

    Yeah, but you have carried forward a few BBs from previous seasons, right?

    Leicester have signed Jonny Evans. They also signed Ricardo Pereira from Porto earlier in the window.

    A game week in February 2020 will be staggered over two weekends to give every team a weekend off.
    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/44414487

    Heartache as my 2nd weekend players pick up injuries and I've no chance to change them.
    Or perhaps heartache as despite an extra week to get injured and allow a highscoring bench player to sub in they all remain annoyingly healthy.

    But heartache definitely.

    Pretty sure it'll be split into two different gameweeks. Will take a good bit of planning ahead

    I would imagine it'll just be one. Making it two would almost be making it a 39 Gameweek season.

    You just know we're going to end up with two great captain options and they play on different weekends just to make the pain last even longer those weeks!

    Remember this time last year when Southampton players looked essential due to their start :pac:

    I think I even went with 3 of them in my team at the beginning :rolleyes:

    FF Scout:

    Southampton and Everton assets might be among those to consider in the opening months of the season: they are the only two clubs not to play any of last season’s top six sides in the first five Gameweeks.

    Not this again. :pac:

    City and Liverpool look worth loading up on at the start.

    City: ars, HUD, wlv, NEW, FUL, car, BRI

    Liverpool: WHU, cpl, BRI, lei, tot, SOU

    If someone can point me towards an Excel version of the fixtures I can have a go at creating a squad planner like the infamous/amazing/horrifying one I did for DGW planning towards the end of last season.

    Have changed jobs recently so slightly less time for faffing about with FPL :-)

    Dammit - foiled again :angry:
    Found a workable fixture list format just now - will tip away at it over the next couple of days and post up here when it's finished.
    Any favoured abbreviations for the promoted teams? I'm going with WOL, CAR and FUL for the minute
