The New Season

Hello everyone, it has been a while since I sat down to write an FPL article and it may take a little time for the cobwebs to be completely blown away. Nonetheless, I am excited to be back writing content especially after last season went so well with a 5k Overall Rank and I’m grateful that FFGeek reached out over the summer to give me the opportunity to do this again.

I am not planning on spending any further time tinkering on the FPL site or in my Transfer Planner until much closer to the deadline as I would prefer to have a clear mind when selecting my final squad. In doing so, my hope is that I avoid any attachment to players which could impair my decision making. This also should help to prevent any regrets once the season has started as this will narrow the pool of players that were seriously under my consideration.

Avoiding creating multiple drafts while spending significant time tinkering is actually a new tactic that I have adopted for this season. To quote a specific example, I am not a manager who can easily forget the fact that Benrahma and Antonio did not make the cut for my final GW1 team in 2021/22 despite appearing in the majority of my pre-season drafts. Therefore, I am using a reduced tinkering approach for this season, something that I may also do when playing the wildcard and free hit chips.

Pre-season friendlies

I have been keeping an eye on pre-season games; however, I have shown very little interest in the results and performances of teams and their players. The reason for this is that history shows us for every player that continues their pre-season form, there is another who fails to hit the ground running under the Premier League lights. Frankly, I don’t have 100% faith in my ability to decipher who fits into the two categories so I would prefer to place very little weighting on pre-season ‘form’. Instead, when looking at friendlies, I am primarily focussed on formations, tactical decisions and minutes played with more importance placed on matches taking place nearer to GW1.

Community Shield

A step-up from friendlies as this can technically be considered as a competitive match and it sees the two most important FPL teams (from my perspective) face each other. I would imagine that my GW1 team will include at least combined 5 players from Man City and Liverpool, taking up a significant portion of my budget. Therefore, I will be keeping a close eye on Saturday’s Wembley encounter with the main focus on seeing which players are in the respective starting XIs. It will also be interesting to see if both teams elect to continue with their traditional 4-3-3s as there has been talk of switching to other formations following movements in the transfer market.

Reading football content

I have always been a football fan before an FPL fan and I love all aspects of the sport. My lunch breaks at work are mainly spent reading the latest available written pieces and I do not just like to read up on my own team, Spurs. During the summer, I like to research about all the Premier League teams whether that be about manager philosophies, new transfers or even financial situations. I like to think that having at least some knowledge across all teams will help me translate the stats used in my Transfer Planner to true expectations of FPL performance.

The team

We are currently just under 2 weeks from the season start and, although I released a first draft following the game opening, I have done very little tinkering during the pre-season
