  1. DEF: Hunt (Moore) MID: Palmer (Eliasson) FWD: Best Of (C) @hodge you seem to have a vice-captain but no captain... To Stoke!
  2. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I apologise. Somehow missed the vice-captain when I originally copied down the teams, so it defaulted to Weimann. Fits with the theme, I spose. One and all, I give you your actual Gameweek 6 leader: @Dogbert! 19 whole smackeroonies - giving the same average as our overall leader @citywest30 of 18.333. Game on. Updated table:
  3. PEU v Stoke @citywest30, @Septic Peg, @Tom Fleuriot & myself - cannot select Afobe. Nor can Lee Johnson, of course, so this is either happy coincidence or clever strategising...
  4. Gameweek 6 Update - Mistakes An own goal and an offside-busting header. Taylor Moore probably didn’t hugely enjoy Saturday’s match. Still, he didn’t make as many mistakes as we did... Mistake 1: choose Taylor Moore Yep, unsurprisingly, choosing the defender who made mistakes was a mistake. Despite my warning about my team, @NNSnse followed me down the disappointing path and we both ended up with just 5 points. Oops. Mistake 2: captain a defender Conceding two goals generally doesn’t bode well for our defensive ranks, and their combined three points is testament to that. So @bissellredhead & @Septic Peg‘s decision to captain Baker left them with less than half of his dozen - 6 points apiece. Mistake 3: don’t choose Kasey Palmer None of the aforementioned players chose him, and nor did @Chivs (7 points), @Chessels Chick, @jrt55555 or @LeeJohnsonsFlatCap (8 points each). Why the extra point? Jack Hunt and The Well-Timed Substitutions. Mistake 4: choose Kasey Palmer, but don’t captain him Step forth @citywest30, @Dogbert, @Oubliette23 and @hodge. A handy 8 points from Palmer could’ve been so much more, but in a week of low scores you can’t sniff at a solid Baker-less baker’s dozen - or 14 for @hodge (you guessed it: Jack Hunt). Mistake 5: be someone that isn’t @Tom Fleuriot Despite making mistakes 1 & 3, @Tom Fleuriot‘s inspired choice of Tommy Rowe (as captain, no less) ensured that such oversights were nullified, with a total of 17 points. Having only played for three weeks, Tom’s been top of two of them, averaging 19.666 points. We are not worthy*. Mistake 6: consider playing your Overload chip on three midfielders, then back out of it and watch while the midfielders you would’ve chosen score 18 points which, with a captain, would’ve secured you 26 points, but instead you pick the one midfielder who doesn’t do anything and end up with 5 points. Also known as RedYoshi’s mistake. No mistakes in the table, at least (I hope): Indeed, our first centurion @citywest30 is crowned, @Tom Fleuriot begins climbing the table and, yes, those 21 points I missed out on would’ve seen me joint top. Thanks for noticing. It’s heating up! * @hodge and @citywest30 might be, averaging 18.5 and 18.333 respectively, but the rest of us sure aren’t.

  5. Now I’ve had a successful week, here’s the team that’ll get nothing... DEF: Moore (vc) (Williams) MID: Brownhill (Palmer) FWD: Afobe (C) (Weimann) Quick reminder for @Septic Peg that you can pick anyone this week - worried you’ve been making things harder for yourself by trying to pick completely different players every week...!
  6. Not all heroes wear capes. Thanks! And apologies all round, busy week full of Canadian road trips, cider and planes with wonderful people. Mostly @Oubliette23 who is of course the most wonderful of all the wonderful people. So a quick update for this week - I shall ramble less: Gameweek 5 Update - The Great Thirty Point Barrier Gameweek 4 saw a 27 point total. Gameweek 3: two 28 pointers. This week? Double 29s. Will Gameweek 6 be the dawning of the first 30 point haul? Time will tell. All I can tell you now is that the 29s came courtesy of yours truly, and table-topper @citywest30 (no prizes for guessing who’s top this week), each of us with rather different teams: a best-of captaining of Rowe joining forces with Afobe and Hunt to give @citywest30 a much more balanced side to my “captain Afobe and we’ll basically call it quits” attempt. Close behind came hero @NNSnse on 27 points, with an even more committed “captain Afobe and sod the rest” policy, while @Dogbert didn’t captain Afobe, but cameo captain Hunt helped him up to 23 points. We then have a torrent of teens: @Oubliette23 the best of them, with 16 points, ahead of the 15 for @Septic Peg and @Tom Fleuriot, @LeeJohnsonsFlatCap‘s 14 and the fresh-faced 13 of @Chivs. All of which leaves us with “just reached secondary school” @jrt55555 on 11, and - after the heights of GW3 - a trip back to primary school for @Chessels Chick on 7. (@bissellredhead and @hodge were once again marked absent on the register) Interim reports, therefore: We may not break the 30 point barrier this week, but it’s looking likely that @citywest30 will break the 100! GW5 Points Breakdown Afobe 13 Rowe 6 Weimann 5 Hunt 4 Baker 2 Brownhill 2 Diédhiou 2 Massengo 2 Moore 2 Pereira 2 Kalas 1 Semenyo 1 Palmer 0
  7. @jrt55555 - you’ve fallen in to the Tommy trap... he’s not a defender! (For the purposes of this game). Haven’t been able to get online ‘til now, so I’ll allow a change before kick off if you want, or you can just go with Kalas... Not seen lineup myself (honest, guv!) so here’s my team: DEF: Kalas (Moore) MID: Massengo (Palmer) FWD: Afobe (C) Also, @Septic Peg, you’re fine on strikers.. Not had Afobe at all, let alone in the past two matches, and only chose Weimann v QPR. It’s only if you have a player for two matches running that you can’t pick them for the next match, and I’ll let you know if that’s the case - if you’ve not received a PEU notification, you’ve got free pickings!
  8. PEU v Hull @Chessels Chick - cannot select Kalas or Afobe @hodge - cannot select Palmer or Weimann @jrt55555 - cannot select Afobe @Oubliette23 - cannot select Kalas, Palmer or Afobe
  9. Gameweek 4 Update What a debut! No, not Massengo (he only got two points - useless!) but @Tom Fleuriot. What a fantastically fantastic way to introduce yourself to the fantastical fantasies of Fantasy OTIB. Best midfielder? Tom picked him. Best forward? Tom picked him. And captained him. Best defender? Ah. Not quite the perfect game, but more about our best defender later. Meanwhile, Moore, Brownhill (goal & 1 bonus point) and Weimann (goal & 3 bonus points) helped our Tom to a whopping 27 points, just one behind the standard set last match by @Chessels Chick and @citywest30 (10 and 18 points this time round, respectively). Sterling work, that brings him right into contention despite joining the party three games late. We salute you. However, there was one person who outdid all previous scores by their fellow players, somewhat unexpectedly and fortuitously. Was it another of our debutants, @Dogbert or @LeeJohnsonsFlatCap? Afraid not. How about chip player @Septic Peg, using the bottom of the league like a springboard? Nope. Jack Hunt? Bingo. That’s right, he of one point in three games infamy, pilloried from pre-match to official match thread meltdowns, is now the proud owner of highest gameweek score thus far. Not only did he get an assist (VAR proved inconclusive on both Weimann’s laces and Afobe’s pointing), but his knack for getting substituted meant he wasn’t on the pitch when we conceded, leaving him as the only defender who kept a clean sheet. With two bonus points to top it off, he finished with 11 points, beating Rowe’s 10 from the Birmingham game. Did anyone pick him? Of course not. Instead, coming in second to our debutant extraordinaire was @hodge, whose choice of Palmer instead of Brownhill saw him finish on 24 points, while the near identical teams of @bissellredhead, @NNSnse (who almost used their Best Of chip on their forward, decided against it, and then picked the best forward anyway) & myself grabbed 22 points each. Didn’t pick Jack Hunt though, did they? @Septic Peg used the opposite tactic to @NNSnse by choosing Brownhill, then deciding to use the Best Of chip, and ending up with Brownhill anyway. Still worked pretty well, 17 points putting her just one behind @citywest30 who was the only player to choose Weimann but not captain him. No Jack Hunt, either. Up next were our other debutants, @Dogbert and @LeeJohnsonsFlatCap, whose “unlucky 13” points reflected their unlucky choice of Afobe over Weimann, despite following the apparent (and well executed) debutant law of Brownhill in midfield. Shame a similar law didn’t extend to Jack Hunt though, hey? Afobe also led the line for @Chivs and @Oubliette23, joining @Chessels Chick to create another Three Musketeers style near identical lineup situation and bagging 10 points apiece. One point fewer than Jack Hunt, that. And last but by no means least (apart from, you know, having the least amount of points...), our former leader @jrt55555 suffered a rare off-week, being the only player to score in single figures with 8 points. Should’ve picked Jack Hunt, I reckon... @citywest30 takes to the summit for the first time, a testament to consistency, with rounds of 10, 12, 28 and 18. Also gotta be said that, considering they both missed a week, @hodge and @bissellredhead are in an excellent position. Just goes to show that those lower down have got just as much chance of challenging in the long run. And so it continues... Points Breakdown Hunt 11 Weimann 9 Brownhill 7 Palmer 4 Afobe 2 Baker 2 Kalas 2 Massengo 2 Moore 2 Rowe 2 Diédhiou 1 O’Dowda 1 Pereira 1
  10. LJ rivalling Pep Guardiola for the title of most frustrating manager for Fantasy games - Palmer off before 60mins this time!
  11. Haha, I’m reviewing the footage for a slight brush of the laces or something - he’s my captain too!
  12. An excellent question, and one I’ve been pondering myself since Septic played hers. I think for some added strategy in regards to when to play chips, it would drop to second best, essentially becoming “Best Of [Available Players]”. Potentially requires a bit of planning ahead then, so as not to block yourself using the chip to its maximum. On a related note, again thanks to @Septic Peg‘s chip usage: you are able to captain your Best Of pick. I considered outlawing it, but as it’s not an automatic pick of the best performer in the whole team it hopefully shouldn’t be too much of an extra bonus on top of the chip itself. Tut, tut, tut. I’ll allow it, this once, but only if you can promise you didn’t see the line-up beforehand Also, welcome @Dogbert! Fantasy Island is growing. COYR!
  13. Can have Diédhiou as sub if you want - only players in your final team each week are taken into consideration, so non-playing subs are fair game. Imagine Afobe will probably play anyway so it makes little difference, but have put Diédhiou in as sub for you at the moment. Just under two hours ‘til the Derby deadline (that’s ripe for a hashtagging, but I’m trying to cut down for my health) - little nudge for @bissellredhead and @NNSnse. My team: DEF: Baker (Kalas) MID: Nagy (Massengo) FWD: Weimann (C) (Afobe vc)
  14. No, he prefers Ádám...
  15. Done and done. Way to cut short my fantasising though...
