Introduction

It’s worth noting that the teams shown may not necessarily end up being the final teams or the transfers may have been made in the days prior to the posting . It’s an informal situation to give you an idea of trends.

However the FFGeek team, the Transfer Planner Team and the Contributor Tracker team Plus the Contributor teams of Rob, Rick, Andrew, Kris, Kev and Joe mentioned above on the FFGeek Patreon site all make notified transfers live as they are completed. So you’re always up to date and live for a maximum £3 PCM.

The reference to 19 top managers is from the article where I follow 19 top FPL managers who have finished in the top 10k overall rank the last 3 seasons

Antonello Di Filippo

Antonello’s last 3 overall ranks are 21k, 10k and 42k

GW26 points: 59 -4  (19 Top managers average 58) Total points: 1,567 Overall Rank: 320k, green arrow: 3k   Team Value: £103.6m

Antonello used his Triple Captain Chip in GW25 and has activated his Wildcard in GW27

I lost £0.7m odd in team value points by activating this Wildcard. I did it before seeing the results of the cup matches, because my intention was to activate it to adjust my team by immediately inserting Salah Son Watkins and Solanke.

What I want to say is that I’m not really interested in filling up with players for the double Gameweek 28, or at any rate I don’t want to take more than 4 (which I can then use as subs in the following weeks)

I’m not too worried about the blank in 29, there’s only 4 games and it’s going to be a low scoring gameweek looking at the match-ups and teams taking part.   So no point in using the Free Hit in my view

I think it may make much more sense to activate the Free Hit in GW34 without having to fill up with teams like Everton,  Burnley, Palace etc.  The Free Hit means you have players from these teams just for that gameweek

My plan is to activate the Bench Boost in GW37.

I wanted to get a Spurs defender, but Porro and Udogie don’t seem to have an immediate return from injury.  While Van de Ven might be an alternative, the problem is that Spurs never seem get a Clean Sheet.

Should the injury to Solanke be confirmed I already have a plan B ready with Semeneyo and strengthening the midfield with the addition of Gordon.

Toney is player another one to consider

If you are looking for a Bournemouth defender trust me take Zabarnyi as Senesi has the yellow cards stacked up.

Kiwior I will take off soon, while I really hope Bell can play both doubles.

I am a tad worried about Burn’s playing time, I preferred Botman but I don’t get there by 0.1

The worst thing that could happen to me and I hope not is Salah’s injury continuing.

Transfer summary:  Wildcard activated

Here’s the latest draft

 Gameweek 26 review:

Four teams sat it out due to the EFL cup final with Liverpool and Chelsea and their GW26 opponents not involved. The title race is now much closer with leaders Liverpool not playing and their two nearest challengers both winning.

Man City are not scoring freely, scoring just once in each of their last three games, but a Foden goal was enough to beat Bournemouth. Newcastle are leaking goals like a sieve and Arsenal took them apart 4-1, their 6th successive win, with Saka continuing his hot streak. Villa are in the champions league places after a 4-2 win over Forest, with Douglas Luiz scoring twice, as Ollie Watkins kept his hot scoring run going too.

Fulham grabbed a 97th minute winner in a surprise 2-1 win at Man Utd. Brighton scored in the 95th minute to deny Everton crucial points in a 1-1 draw. The curse of the most transferred in player struck Hwang and it was Sarabia’s goal instead that gave Wolves the points against bottom club Sheff Utd. And Palace brushed aside ten man Burnley with three second half goals.

The action concluded on Monday night as Westham beat Brentford 4-2, with a sparkling Jarrod Bowen hat trick, as he ended up the weeks highest points scorer, his first return in seven weeks.

My GW26 score and rank:

I had just 5/11 returners in a score of 59-4 = 55 points. Goals for Foden, Watkins and Saka, and an assist for captain Haaland brought decent points for all four, but their high ownership resulted in only small rank benefits. But the goal for 5% owned Branthwaite was a very significant one and saved my gameweek.

It was the tiniest of red arrows, down from 195.225 to 195,560 !! So let’s call it a “grey arrow” shall we. Rank unchanged. The Bowen hat trick on the final game did the damage and I would have just scraped a green arrow but for Areola conceding the second goal.

My GW26 significant moments:

Erling Haaland is not yet firing on all cylinders, a solitary assist v Bournemouth as my captain. The Saka and Watkins captainers were the winners this week. Haaland is getting the chances so I expect a haul to be just around the corner.

I took a hit to lose Darwin and Jota for Solanke and Hwang who scored just five points between them. Hwang was disappointing in the golden ticket fixture v Sheff Utd and was anonymous throughout.

My biggest dilemna going into the deadline was whether or not to play Branthwaite or Taylor, alongside Gabriel and Estupinan. The clean sheet odds slightly favoured Taylor, who is more attacking of the pair too, but he wasn’t certain to start after just one brief bench cameo and six previous games out, so I sided with the certain starter and better defence of Everton, albeit against tougher opponents. His goal was an unexpected bonus and I gained a huge 8 points on my biggest call of the week, starting him over Taylor.

I wasn’t sure whether to be happy or disappointed with his 9 points. His clean sheet was cruelly wiped in stoppage time, to deny him what would have been a huge rank boosting 15 pointer. But then again, I could easily have benched him. And it was only my 50-50 shout of Branthwaite over Conor Bradley last gameweek which prevented me being on Taylor anyway. So I came very close on two fronts to not getting his 9 points at all.

Estupinan was benched again ( !! ), Gabriel lost his clean sheet late on, and De Bruyne played just ten minutes and got booked for a zero pointer !! What a frustrating pick up de Bruyne has been including his two points in the double gameweek last week.

It was too much to expect a clean sheet from Areola in the final game. It’s seven games since my last keeper clean sheet.

Saka, Watkins, Foden and Haaland kept the scoreboard ticking at least, albeit all highly owned, proving how dangerous it is to not own players of such high ownership
