3 tips to have fun this season

Post by CrypticMethod » 09 Aug 2019, 17:13

1. Don't double up on defences. Clean sheets getting wiped can ruin your weekend, especially when they happen after 80 minutes. Doubling up could end in tears.

2. Try to maximise the amount of different PL teams you cover in your squad. Liverpool x3, Man City x3, Bournemouth x3 is boring. With 10 fixtures every weekend you only end up being interested in 4-5 teams. More teams equals more involvement and more fun.

3. Make sure you have at least one sub that actually plays. Unexpected rotation or pre-match injuries hurt more when you're down to 10 men during the lunchtime kickoff.

4. If you're only going to watch one of the televised live matches at the weekend make sure you have one of your midfielders or attackers playing e.g. your captain.
5. Join a mini league or two.

6. Manage a draft team or two as well, since you'll end up owning more players overall and hauls for someone you don't have in FPL can still benefit your draft teams.

7. Don't check your score until the full time whistle blows. Those aren't your points yet.

8: Always make the last thing you do on making any changes is to click the "My Team" tab - whether you are already on it or not - to ensure the team FPL have is the same as the one your think you've just saved .... or have you?

9. Don’t sit staring at the bonus lists during the game. The anxiety becomes strong within you.

I basically live by this one these days. Last year I didn't follow any of the 3pm kick-offs at all. Just ignored them for a couple of hours and checked LiveScore at 5pm. Will do the same again this season. It's a real thrill to access all the 3pm results in one fell swoop.

Of course, this season if I check my phone at 5pm, half the games probably won't have finished yet due to ridiculous time-consuming VAR nonsense. :lol: :?

Not a tip but be sure to enjoy the pre-season and all the excitement around your first gameweek. In a couple of days you'll have 29 points and wonder what happened.

15. Captain Sterling every game because City are the most unreal English team we’ve ever seen.
