WELCOME TO THE GW26 REVIEW – WEAPON OF CHOICE
GW26 week really had so many chips in play with many different strategy options. The announcement of DGW 28 and 29 before the deadline had many ‘experts’ changing from multiple hits with TC to wildcard.
Salah was the obvious choice for a TC and the results were conclusive. His Effective Ownership was probably (not fact checked) an all time high of 266% in top 10K and 213% in FFUK. This week in FFUK we had a massive 183 chips in play! . Mainly TC (127 on Salah), some FH, a few BB and 12 WC.
A great and interesting week for FPL, although we all needed to captain Salah at the very least, you had options. This was not a week for differential captain picks. Especially as Klopp turned into Pep, resting Robbo and TAA for the first game of the double.
my team and STRATEGY
My strategy was always to FH in 26 , as I only had 2 doublers and as my team in 27 is looking OK. I will WC in 28. Probably use TC in 29 on Salah.
I just needed Salah, my captain, to blank…
My 3 word GW of each team, if a DGW they have 6 words!
Views are my own and not necessarily shared with FFUK.
Arsenal – Won but conceded in both games
Villa – All going wrong
Brentford – Stop the rot
Brighton – Not expecting that
Burnley – May stay up very impressive results
Chelsea – Left it late
Palace – Lots of late drama, thanks Wilf
Everton – New manager bounce?
Leeds – Championship called, they want you back
Leicester – Simply can’t defend
Liverpool – Making the premier league interesting again
Man U – Remember Leeds shit
Man C – Thanks for losing
Newcastle – Another good result
Norwich – Given head start
Southampton – Impressive result again
Spurs – The clue is in the name
West Ham – Still doing good
Wolves – Three points but conceded in both
Watford – Remember Villa Shit, so are you
Brief FPL overview
Some very high scores. Everyone on here was a DGW player.
This was a huge scoring week. All top 100 FFUKers scored 100+ points.
Paul Marshall (44th) was the weeks top FFUK scorer with a whopping 176 with hit taken off. He also becomes our highest GW of the season- you are certainly not flopping.
Will Johnson is the super unlucky CONT. He scored 127 and is gone…
Into Kloppage time and the FFUK cup draw is on the 3rd March and will be on YouTube. A update will be coming soon.
Until next time,
