Fire in the hole! Time to figure out which 4.0 striker might get a few minutes so you can afford Haaland.

SJH are you in charge again?

I renewed my team. Apparently registration date is a tiebreaker for weekly/monthly rewards.

I renewed my other mini-league, and had to send invites out again - I thought if the mini-league was renewed and the teams register again, it was automatic.

Anyhow, I'm hoping we can have some FPL discussion in here this season. I'm researching my theory of dip in performance by golden boot winners who receive a new contract immediately after. Will Salah/Son disappoint us this season?

It's another manifestation of the SI cover or Madden cover jinx. Nowhere to go but down.

Son's xG was 16.4, Salah's was 22.9. Salah has penalties and Son doesn't (although he took one yesterday). Salah's npxG was 17.0.

Having the penalties gives Salah a built-in advantage. 5 of his 23 goals were pens.

In my head I thought Ings and PEA tied for the golden boot in '19-20, but it was Vardy who took it - my theory was quickly debunked

Do we just do a regular league last season, or also a Head to Head? I'll set up the latter if people are interested in both formats.

Anyone also interested in a Head-to-Head format, if so I can create one and post the code here?

Is it ok if I invite my cousin (non-SoSH) to this league? He's never done FPL before, but is interested since he's a big fan (and former player).

OK I've finally renewed the league.

Use the link here: SoSH 2022-23

I'm in as Aston Martin Villa. You may have to create your team and then join the league. I just used auto-fill and then I'll tweak my team as necessary.
Invited 2 friends in using the Code posted by Swiftlaw below. Apparently that Code only works for head-to-head. Is there a separate Code for main league? OK if I give it to them?

there is some great value in midfield, so you can squeeze in two premiums and 4+ at the back. But you then have to might have to go with two 4.5 forwards. But that's not too bad, there's a lot of wait and see in the forward positions, of the three groups they're the weakest imo.

that might have to wait for my wildcard in week 8 or during the World Cup break

I'm tied into Kane or Haaland + 8mil mid + Salah to start the season

If you look at that link, the last 6 letters should be the code I believe.

Here's an article on the guy that came in first overall last season: https://theathletic.com/4563262/2023/05/31/fpl-champion-best-in-world/

He won in final week because Callum Wilson got 22 minutes off the bench. lol

Captaincy was also crucial as I predicted it would be a close call between Kane and Mohamed Salah. Salah could have hauled as well but it did not happen, and I thought I had lost it in the final stages of the game. Callum Wilson’s cameo off the bench meant that my closest chaser did not get Ethan Pinnock’s 15-point mega haul off the bench. I won it in the final minutes and it’s hard to describe what I went through that night.

Weren’t we supposed to get double points for the London derbies last week? I made a bunch of changes to take advantage, and it doesn’t look like I did.

Edit: apparently I’m an idiot, and that was a separate game. That wasn’t very clear. Shit.

The least I could do was prevent a mini league double. It was a two horse race by the last quarter of the season, and I didn't do enough close the gap. At least I didn't lose 100k OR during the final GW.

Shutting off football until late July. Been real.
