Just replied on other thread you started but was deleted, haha.  I think conventional wisdom is to use the Triple Captain chip on one of the double game weeks but to be honest most of the time it's down to sheer fluke.  Team looks OK, how are you getting on?  X

 

I never knew there are double game weeks as I always get one free transfer per fixture so I assumed the app operates match by match unlike Sky app?

The double game weeks come around once games start to get rearranged due to the FA Cup. Normally ones in gameweek 33/34 and 37.

Ah okay,  I thought it would come in play during Christmas fixtures but was surprised when it was not the case.    I now can see why it was the case as rearranged fixtures would not be part of the original matches schedule.  Shame that I have already used my triple captain  (on Aubameyang when I thought Arsenal would crush Huddersfield at home but they whimpered home with a 1-0 win! with an assist from Aubameyang!  Typical Fantasy Football eh?)   Thanks.

Had a torrid time so far this season with seemingly every pick going against me (early transfer Mane -> KdB didnt work out, took a hit to swap Ryan out for Hart who was then dropped, etc), but still just about clinging on. Still got all my chips so hopefully I can benefit from those and work my way back up.

 

Somehow I'm still in the cup. Don't think I've ever got this far in it before, so naturally I'll go out this week to a dead team.

I might go for the ultimate differential and triple captain Amartey in his first game back. 

In a head to head league I'm in, a guy i was playing triple captained Shaw in the first game of the season :mad:

Haha.  Sometimes I do get the urge to try something stupid. X

Toying with the idea of swapping in Barnes for Maddison today but unsure if Puel will start him!

bloody annoyed that barnes has come in as our second most expensive midfielder. thought i’d be able to buy him for about the same price as hamza or something at like 4.5 mill, not 5.5.

Me too - surprised he’s more than Gray.

How's everyone doing?  I somehow jumped 200000 places in three weeks (Still not doing great but sitting at about 485000 overall).

5.5  That’s ridiculous. Thought I could sneak him in for 5.0

Yeah I would have been tempted but not at that price  We also have the hardest fixtures of any team over the next 5 game weeks so probably not a good time to bring any of our players in.  I already have Ricardo and he's been doing great recently but trying to fight the urge to have any other of our players as I think only really Ricardo is a good shout at the minute.  X

We are very close!  What is the common consensus on what is a "successful" season?  top 100000?  Top 300000?

YOY improvements since I have played so I have to aim for top 10,000

 

its all about those double and reduced game weeks towards the end of the season.

Great finish last year! My best is about 50000. Yeah agree with you about double/blank gw. I think a big part also is getting a good start. After a while a lot of teams look the same but you really can pull away at the beginning. I also think sheer luck plays a huge part. The guy currently at number 1 has never finished in top million before. X

My finishes have looked like this. 13/14 I set up a team in January and never changed it again, so ignore that (I'm not lying I promise). Aiming for top 50k this year given my current rank.

Had a horror show last season but having Vardy and Mahrez as constants in 15/16 helped a lot lol
