Season 3 baby, let's go!

If you take anything from this podcast, you need to follow Ivan @Reuser5 on Twitter.

It was an enlightening podcast as Ivan talked to us how he hasn't checked his rank for 3 seasons until GW38, for context he has recorded finishes of 170k, 28k and 12k in those three seasons. Trusting his ability to make the right decisions each week and not focusing on outcome.

It's a great listen.

We also go on...

We talk about what we can learn from the season gone by, just a little differently to most others.

How will 5 subs impact the game?
Most subbed players?
First starters?

Big Gains....or Big Pain. Which way did your GW go?

We talk through the big teams in the Gameweek and how that will affect the decision making in GW37, we also look at the game state re: chips so we know what we're up against.

Good week for Adam, not great for Baker....so far, still a way to go!

We were again LIVE on Youtube, join us there in future to see it first hand.

Little bit later than usual but we welcome Dan aka FPL Mate as he looks to finish off a whirlwind season, currently sitting at OR 12.

Not 12k...... 12

F***

Dividing the community each week, but his team isn't divided and he's coming along to share some of the emotions, some of the thought processes and some of his opinions on how to get through DGW36 - GW38.

Jesus - what a week.

Both Baker and I ended up on Free Hit, and we have had very different weeks. Both made good decisions....very different outcomes.

We cover the games in GW34 and look early at captaincy options for 35 with a faltering Tottenham, a knocked Salah...could there be an alternative hiding in plain sight?

We welcomed YouTube Content Creator and host of the Pitchside Podcast, Reev to join us this week as he looks at how his team has fared on a FH in 33 and a look at his wildcard dilemma for GW34.

We cover what to do with Spurs/Arsenal assets in particular. Which Chelsea players to look at and do we all want to punt on Pukki now?

There's definitely options ahead of us!

FPL GW 32 is over.

Baker and I recorded this live on YouTube so it was a bit chaotic, hopefully that translates well over to audio.

We cover the GW review as always, some talk about what danger we are in not free hitting in 33, is it worth it?

Opposition specifics for the Spurs forward line.

It's a good one, watch if you can...but thanks if you're listening as always :)

FPL GW31 is mid-way through or most of the way through with just a couple of fixtures remaining. With what has happened so far this week it is clear it is all to play for in the Premier League and with 7 weeks still to play there are plenty of FPL points up for grabs.

The main focus of this week is the Gameweek Review, GW32 is a standard gameweek (what's that...) and so more conversation about GW33 and beyond will be covered nex...

We look at how best to finish strong with a focus on the big 6 teams and those with upcoming interesting doubles. Navigating the final GW's of the season can make the difference between dreaming or achieving that target rank finish, or winning that mini league!!

We look at just how good the good teams are, and how bad the bad have through primarily xG and xGC data as well as referencing back to actual goals and clean sheets. How...

As we approach the IB we look back at Blank Gameweek 30 with a more relaxed approach and are joined by a good friend of ours, Andy Martin the FPL Tactician.

We discuss the week gone by for us, the gameweek review and look briefly at some potential moves in fixtures following the FA Cup games this weekend.

We'll be doing a strategy pod/vid during the IB, if you have any questions/topics then we'd love to hear them.

Quite simply incredible, as much as it hurt us this week. 807 and 59 hat tricks. Jeez...it's just incredible the career that Ronaldo has had.

We cover our usual (mid) GW review, not sure we'll get another end of GW review before the end of the season.

We look back at how variance has impacted us so far season to date, how chips are looking for GW29 and then move swiftly on to plans for BGW30 with respect to whether you free ...

We are back with some bonus content for the week looking at Spurs Assets and saying Gimme Gimme Gimme those players for FPL Double Gameweek (DGW) 29.

A shorter version of our usual content and hope you enjoy the analysis since GW18 following Conte's 2 weeks of working with the players due to postponed matches and the International Break.

Despite the topsy turvy results, one thing is for sure...spurs attackers are back firing agai...

It's not often we have such polarising differences between good GW's and bad GW's but we were certainly (or at least so far) hit with one this week.

Giving you the gameweek review from both ends of the scale and reminding ourselves that we are completely unable to influence anything once the deadline has passed.

Baker hovering on the edge of the top 1k and should jump in there by the end of the GW all things being equal, ...

Perspective - it's good to have it as we reflect on our tough decisions this week re: were we right to FH or not to FH and compare to other things happening right now.  A shared fear between Zinchenko and Mykolenko as well as the return of Christian Eriksen the real life talking points.

From an FPL point of view, ultimately FH teams are on green arrows, non-FH teams probably aren't that far behind thanks to City not performi...

So Harry Kane is good right? Kane is back? Etc...etc...

In addition to that we are back talking FPL GW26 in the middle of the Gameweek with 4 fixtures still to play. It's going okay for us at the moment...so far, considering neither of us Triple Captained Mo Salah...

We talk about the game at the Etihad (spoiler alert, we loved it) and also run through some great options for GW27 on a FH.

Quick run through at the end of the games ...

Back to just the two of us this week as we discuss the ups and downs of GW25 so far.

Is the football just rubbish when it rains?

Strong performances from Lampard's Everton. Is Gordon a good cheap option? How does he compare with Ramsey up against a resurgent Newcastle.

Have Liverpool (and in particular Trent) changed the way they are attacking?

Every game covered (pretty much) and an outlook on 26 as we move in to TC Salah territor...

Join us as we discuss Fantasy Premier League strategy with DGW planning with Tom Freeman.

Tom is one of the most consistent managers in FPL history with 5 x top 1k finishes to his name.

He talks about how the game has changed, the tools he uses and helps us navigate through data looking at GW24-26 in particular with an eye on the key GW's 27 and 30.
