Tom's joined by Harry for the penultimate time in his stint as co-host to preview that all important final Gameweek in FPL. Are there actually more goals? Who is of interest to FPL managers as one week genie in a bottle? And what do we expect?
All covered off by this week's edition.

Tom & Harry are together again to discuss the DGW37 setup in the antepenultimate pod of the season, looking at the doubling teams and asking what free hitters and non free hitters alike should do!
Plus there's a bit of chat about next year's pricing based on Haaland potentially joining the Premier League.

This week, Tom and Harry are joined by pod debutant TT (aka Thinesh) to preview the Big One - this season's FPL showpiece, Double Gameweeek 36.
Which players and teams are key? Who are we looking at? Where's our armband going? Everything you could possibly need for this week as we hurtle toward the end of 2021/22.

Harry and Tom are back for a quick pod at a time when we're looking back at teams whom we'd previously left on the shelf and are thinking of suddenly buying them in due to the fact they have more games. Is a beached player an actually OK player from a certain point of view? We're here to investigate in a short pod.
(Tom on holiday so sorry about below par sound).

Tom & Harry return for a mid week pod focusing in on the news on fixtures and how managers - in all kinds of situations - should react going forward.
How much emphasis do we place on Chelsea? What happens with different motivation levels and how should we approach that?
Back next week at the near halfway point on Monday after/during Palace vs Leeds when I (Tom) will be on holiday up in York so it might be a sliiightly less good s...

Tom & Harry return for a short pod looking ahead for DGW33 and wondering about the best approach in a notably underwhelming set of fixtures.
Listener questions interwoven in this compact pod.
Back next week!

This week, Harry and Tom look into the ways teams finish seasons: is it more than just on the beach where motivation is concerned, and how do the different ways teams approach the business end impact outcomes?
Plus usual stuff.

Tom and Harry are back, roused from the slumber of the international break to discuss more strategic things this time round. Joined by Seb Wassell of the Scoutcast, we're here to chat sticking, twisting, and everything in between as FPL reaches its business end.
Alongside, of course, the usual updates and listener questions.

Tom is back with Harry to report, with laser-like focus, on the upcoming blank. Who is worth buying? Will they help ongoing plans? What do we even expect from a historically low scoring week?
We'll be back in 2 weeks joined by Seb Wassell of the Scoutcast.

Tom's joined by Harry  to begin his stint on the pod as co-host!
This week, it's all about double gameweeks and FOMO - why do we fall for it, what are the behavioural triggers that might impact it, and is it really a trap?
Plus the usual listener questions.

It's Anthony's final podcast! 
He, Tom and Nick are all back together for our yearly Risk Profiling pod, this year with a crypto spin as we seek to categorise FPL managers by their risk appetites.
Plus correspondence and stuff, alongside a bit of navel gazing as we hit pod 200 and also pay tribute to Anthony's contribution as he leaves WGTA.
Back next week as FPL Harry starts his stint on the pod!

Tom and Anthony (for his penultimate appearance as a cohost on WGTA!) return with FPL Nima to discuss the upcoming double gameweek ahead.
Unusually for us, it's all about tactical, short term advice as opposed to our usual strategic wont but nonetheless there's much to be said about the upcoming doubles which FPL managers could think about in terms of their teams going into the new week.
Plus correspondence and listener quest...

We're back after a bit of a break with FPL Fairy to just catch us up on where we were and discuss how the underlying themes of this season - [big at the back / small at the front] + [always captain Salah] + [clear template] will change going forward through the rest of the season.
We also field questions from listeners, alongside popping through Tom's Wildcard which is now active due to a poor few weeks.
Enjoy the res...

Anthony and Tom return for a quick turnaround episode at the end of the work-party that was Double Gameweek 22 to lament/celebrate the outcome, and take listener questions in a rapid turnaround podcast. 
We discuss general FPL enjoyment, Villa assets, Man City assets and chip strategy.
Enjoy, we'll be back next week!

We return to normal programming after last week's slightly different pod!

This week, Anthony and I look at the vaunted FPL 200 Club at (near as we can) the halfway point. We follow up on what we did 10 pods ago in Pod 13, and, using the data and past season comparisons, make some projections for how the season may end up in terms of the top 10 players in FPL as well as who will be let into the exclusive 200 club.
Plus DGW chat in...

This pod's a bit different than normal, as within we give an update on what WGTA will be like in 2022.
Unfortunately, FPL Stag is leaving in March after 2 years on the pod due to work and life commitments taking their toll - he'll still be around for a bit, but we thought we'd break the news now we had an opportunity to do.
In his place, we've got 3 (sort of) newcomers to the pod:

Quick turnaround pod tonight with just Tom - general updates and a few questions from the community surrounding DGW plans, James replacements and suchlike.

Happy new year from us at WGTA, speak to you next year/week.

This week, Tom and Anthony are joined by FPL General to garner his pearls of wisdom on what are the strangest of times in fantasy football and ask how indeed do we navigate this most uncertain of times?
Elsewhere, it's cheeky pens in the correspondence and the gamut of context-appropriate FPL related questions in the Q&A.
One final week for the mini-league, which will be locked after GW19: 2ip43t.
We wish you a merry and healt...

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
