GW35 review

An odd gameweek, which saw numerous benchings and 1 pointers amongst popular players and where success was pretty much directly proportional to your Captain choice. Salah was the poll leader but was surprisingly benched for a tricky trip to St James’ Park and then had the ultimate indignity of a 1 point cameo. The other 2 popular choices were Kane and Son – if you had the former, this probably led to an escape with a grey or small green arrow. If you had the latter, then you were likely green if you owned him and had a big green if you Captained him.

I was fortunate enough to fall on the good side of variance this time. I’d planned Son as a Captain this week when Leicester reached the semi-finals in Europe. I knew Rogers was likely to rotate his team and I knew the game would favour Spurs style far more than their previous two fixtures. They had certainly flattered to deceive against Brighton and Brentford, who set up in an effective low defensive block to nullify Spurs’ speed on the break. Leicester however were always unlikely to try this and so it proved. It’s rare that I go against the Captain favourite, but I didn’t see Salah getting a huge haul away to a Newcastle side that have tightened up a lot under Eddie Howe (did I really just say that) though there is still a deep FPL scar buried in me that remembers a Bournemouth defensive disaster a few years back after I’d recently sold Salah!

What I didn’t predict though was Salah’s benching and also the scale of Son’s haul – that was a lucky bonus on the outcome, but one I’m happy to take in a season where for the first 29 weeks I’ve felt like I’ve been struggling against the tide somewhat. Indeed Son’s score made up over half my total in the end and despite 1 pointers from Alonso, Rudiger, Weghorst and Mount to add to Salah, a double City clean sheet, a bench cameo from Kulusevski and an assist from Saka gave me a 33% rank rise.

Another good week then – that’s 5 green arrows and 1 grey arrow since GW29. It’s interesting how things can turn around. Andrew Whitfield and I exchanged messages after GW29 bemoaning our fortunes and wondering if our seasons were over at that point, but we both resolved to keep plugging away and stick to our plans. Sometimes this works out and sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s nice to see that on this occasion we’ve managed to turn things around. Let’s hope the momentum can continue through the last 3 weeks of the season.

GW36 Team

2 free transfers, no money in the bank.

I’ve got one chip left – Bench Boost; and I’m planning on playing it this week. At present I’ve got a couple of issues in my squad still that need to be resolved to make the chip worthwhile. I need to finally move red-flagged Idah on. I’d also like to move Broja as well – he’s not returned since GW24, is a rotation risk and only has one fixture this GW. I’d also like to change De Gea – he finally registered a clean sheet this week (typically I’d benched him for Ramsdale!) but there’s 3 goalkeepers available who have 5 fixtures left versus 3 and have better clean sheet prospects so I’d like one of those in.

My problem is I’ve got no funds in the bank. I’ve already committed myself to a -4 this week, but I’m quite happy to stretch it to a -8 if it bolsters the number of fixtures I get over the next 2 gameweeks. The -4 would be Foster in as my second goalkeeper, but would then limit me to something like Nketiah and Hwang as my 2 forwards. Not desperately inspiring, so I’m therefore favouring the -8. I can firstly free up funds in my midfield by going Mount to a cheap midfielder – this is a bit risky, but Mount will probably only start once in GW36 as I expect Chelsea to rotate in preparation for the FA Cup Final. Therefore someone like Gordon or Ramsey could be a good starter here (sorry for the bad culinary joke!) to free up funds and give me 2 fixtures both this week and in GW37.

This would then give me £3.1m elsewhere – so I could do something along the lines of changing De Gea to Pickford and bring in Richarlison/Watkins for Broja and Pukki for Idah. This then gives me 14 double gameweek players plus Weghorst (who doubles in GW37) for my Bench Boost. I will mull this over through the week and certainly won’t be making any moves until Friday to allow for the European games and any possible injuries. As for Captaincy, it’ll most likely be Salah who I suspect will hopefully be free of any rotation risk now after his rest versus Newcastle.

As per usual I’ll post my team on twitter before the deadline – likely Saturday morning, with the deadline a bit later this week at 130pm UK time. Good luck everyone and I hope you enjoy the games.

Transfer summary: Mount OUT to Gordon/Ramsey IN; De Gea to Pickford; Idah to Pukki; Broja to Richarlison/Watkins (minus 8). Bench Boost activated.

The move will be Coutinho to Foden. Very very slight chance of Son to De Bruyne instead but Foden is far more likely. Salah captain

I’ll be Bench Boosting this week. With two free transfers, my plan is to take a -8 to try to exploit the bench boost fully as well as putting my team into better shape for the last few gameweeks. I wouldn’t normally advocate a double hit, but I need to remove dead wood from my team as lately I’ve been having to play rotation risks every week.

The transfers would involve moving De Gea, Schar, Martinelli and King to Foster, Laporte, Gordon and Nketiah.

I may not see an immediate benefit in my bench boost (although it would give me 14 doublers), but I’m confident these transfers will work out by the end of the season.

I’ll have to make the moves soon to avoid being priced out. However, it’s sensible to at least wait until after City’s UCL game.

Captain will be Salah. Last week, I changed my captaincy to Kane last-minute with some success, but I’m not sure I can go against Salah in a double gameweek!

Best of luck to you all.

Transfer summary: De Gea, Schar, Martinelli and King OUT to Foster, Laporte, Gordon and Nketiah IN. Bench Boost to be activated.
