This #FPL Season Is Bizarre
One thing i have learned playing #fpl this season is that there is no point trying to use any sort of logic in picking your team on a weekly basis. I mean for example,playing a Bournmouth defender this week away at Chelsea would surely give you 2 points maximum if lucky,right? Not at all,a clean sheet and defender BP's for Cook (4.3) 10 points and Smith (4.0) 9 points. And then we had Newcastle v Liverpool,i am sure most of us were counting our fpl points before the game but as we know, 2-0 to Newcastle! These sort of results are happening almost every week! Fixtures dont seem to really matter at all so far with the odd exception.
This weekend has been one of many GW's where the less fancied players are scoring well and the fancied big fpl players and so called must haves to be successful are doing very little.I was going to give examples of players which would have included more players from Bournmouth along with West Ham,Newcastle and Watford but i have decided not to do but if you played a 4-3-3 formation,the total player cost of the highest points scorers is 57.8 million!
But this is not really what i am trying to get at as we know that we cant possibly field 11 players costing under 60 million.I have seen many of my fpl friends and dedicated fpl accounts tweeting all week about the forthcoming gw and pondering their moves while i have also seen tweets saying for example
"i forgot to change my team but got 80 points" and also teams which still have Payet and kompany in them getting twice the amount that i got! It's just bizarre what is happening and i am wondering if there is any point in being any way logical about team selections.
It reminds me of the Harry Enfield sketch with the guy on the horse trying his best and the other guy just effortlessly coming up beside him and going on to win the race, see below,
These clips kinda sum up my fpl season as well as many others but we will try again next week,
ps-i dont mean any disrespect to any of the above mentioned teams as afterall,they are Premier teams by right.It is all based on fpl player valuations!
