This season has been a rollercoaster; with many ups and downs but the end of the season push has been so much fun. I’ve had to take risks because my team and surprisingly done well of late and I want to see how far I can push it.

First off I’ve made two transfers (-4) Cesc and Sane in for the departing Lingard and Ozil. Lingard as with Rashford has been a waste of late and despite Ozil picking up good returns; Everton will be a tougher game. Sane has been in great for of late and so has Cesc; with games against Sunderland and Watford I’m expecting big things from both. 

My team selection was straightforward for the first pick of Rashford but then it became much tougher. I’m playing Forster over DDG because I’m expecting Mourinho to rotate and think United will concede. Bertrand is first sub because he’s a risk and Daniels is in the middle against the Foxes. My captain choice was tough; Kane would’ve been my pick had I not been chasing but because I am I narrowed it down to Cesc, Alexis and Jesus. My gut says Cesc and even though he’s a rotation risk, when he plays he scores or assists. This is my last team of the season;

My GW 36 & GW 37 reviewed

Chihuahua's Team

Apologies for the lack of posts with the last two game weeks; I missed the first deadline for 36 and it was the first deadline missed in four years! With 37 I was at work and couldn’t post; but here is how both weeks went for me;

I scored 268 over the two weeks. Firstly 36 was a great week for me; scoring 101 (-8) with the best players possible and captain from me. For my transfers I got in Ozil, Jesus and Monreal for Zaha, Benteke and Baines; all of which worked well.


For 37 I wanted to keep up the momentum and I got Chadli in for Morgan; I played my bench boost chip and scored 167 with captain Alexis producing 54!

Last week started off so well but then sadly dissolved with a disappointing ending. I scored 79 (-8) in a week that averaged 56. Benteke, Daniels & DDG shined with 45 points combined and captain Rashford got me 6 points. 

This week I made two changes (-4) Downing & Baines out with Redmond & Bertrand in. DDG is my sub keeper and Alonso is first sub. Captaincy was between Kane and Benteke but I went with the former. 

Here is my team;


Good luck all!

Last week could’ve gone either way for me but in the end was just about rescued by Alexis who along with captain Kane and Baines had been my only real point scorers 37 in a team that totalled 47 in a week that averaged 46.

This took a lot of reflection and so many of my team failed to rack up any points again; notably Zlatan with 0, Costa, Lingard, Brunt and Randolph with 1 point each. Which is awful returns.

This week I’d planned to do Randolph to DDG and I took a hit to do Benteke for Costa because Costa isn’t looking great at the moment and Benteke faces his former team Liverpool as part of two games this week and I think he will do well. In addition to that because of the Zlatan injury he was taking far too much money not to replace, so in comes Rashford. These moves mean that I have a whopping 6 DGW players this week and have £8.6m in the bank to plan the next few weeks with.

For this week the captaincy goes to Rashford; he’s a man in form and I fancy him to shine in the team in place of Zlatan. On the bench is Forster, Mawson, Morgan & Brunt.


Good luck all!

Well last week was a complete change in fortunes; I scored 72 in a week that averaged 56. Just under half of the team (5) Baines, Brunt, Lingard, Downing and Alexis scored a combined 8. But the other 6 Forster, Alonso, Zaha, Kun, Ibra and Costa all did amazing and scored 54! 

So this week I didn’t really want to change much but Kane coming back and their form means without Alli and co my team is suffering. Despite his form for me Kun makes way for Kane with a favourable fixture. I did want to ditch Costa but I couldn’t do it in a single move, hoping to bring him back soon.

Team pretty much picks himself, I don’t think Lingard will start and I can see Bournemouth conceding a few so setting up with a 4-3-3 and captain Kane! 

Good luck all! @FPLCHI

My GW30 Team

The last gameweek was some what of a success. I scored 65 in a week that averaged 47; with 18 total from captain Alexis. It was another week that Lukaku excelled and scored 16 which was a shame but the real shame was Mawson scoring -1. So it actually cost me to have him. 

As for my team selection I wasn’t planning on changing a thing with Chadli an actual captain contender due to West Broms recent record against United and with all of their injuries at hand I genuinely think another upset can be had. However Pulis has said with two games coming close together that Chadli along with others was a rotation risk; which means he will play more than likely on game of the next two. In addition to that West Brom face United and Liverpool in the next four games and have a blank week in 35. 

That all has lead to me selling Chadli and bringing in Downing. For starters since the manager has left he’s been allowed back in the fold and started the last game. He should be a regular starter and on some set pieces. Also Boro face the Swans, Hull and Burnley in the next three which are as good of fixtures as any and then they play twice in GW34. It’s a cheap punt at £4.9m and frees up just over a million pounds which is great for the coming weeks.

My team selection pretty much picked itself; Morgan is injured and Brady faces Spurs. My keeper selection was the hardest choice but Randolph plays over Forster because of the Saints backline missing so many players and Bournemouth being more of an attacking threat than Hull. In the last position I’m playing Brunt over Mawson because Mawson plays Downings Boro  and Brunt faces a depleted United. I think Brunt will be a huge set piece threat and today even more so with all of Uniteds missing players. Also with Phillips out there’s still a good chance he will play higher up the field.

Captaincy was a difficult decision and it was between Alexis or Aguero. I’m going with the latter because he didn’t play the full international game and Arsenal after conceding 3 at the Hawthorns; it should have been more. A win for City here will be a springboard for them to finish the season well and hopefully a big showing from Aguero will make him an FPL essential again for the remainder of the season. I miss the old Kun and while both players will more than likely score I fancy Aguero to score more than one, which I can’t see Alexis doing.


Good luck all 🙂

Just when I was down and out; drowning in my own sorrows last week something quite miraculous happened last week. I scored 58 in a week that averaged 19 with Lukaku, Morgan, Manson and Randolph scoring 51 between just the four of them! Meanwhile my transfer in of Firmino was a flop and he didn’t play at all.

This week after being at the Hawthrons last week and seeing how bad we were (hurts me to say) I saw we played Arsenal and immediately wanted Alexis back in my team. The easiest way was a straight swap with a single FT for Firmino. There are doubts of him starting but his stats this season and form can’t be ignored.

As for my team selection; Morgan takes first bench position and just misses out to the atttacking defenders in my team. Brunt is in second after being dropped the last game and with Albion very likely to concede and the useless Snodgrass last sub. Captaincy gamble on my transfer in (Alexis).


Good luck all 🙂

So last week put me right off FPL and in a real bad mood. I scored 59(-8) in a week that saw the average at 50. So after planning and playing my triple captain chip I scored a single point above average. Aguero scored 27 in all but was a huge disappointment blanking in the second game while KDB scored 4, bloody 4! I spent that on a hit to get him in for Hazard who was a doubt and scored. 

That luck continued into me choosing my transfer early and getting Firmino who is now a doubt. I am making no more transfers and leaving as is with Lukaku as captain. What will be, will be.


Good luck all!

I am actually surprised st how well GW26 went and that in a large part is due to Harry Kane who scored an impressive 20 points. My team scored 69 in a week that averaged 45 and Brady who I transferred in got returns too! 

This week the plan was not to use a single transfer but after the DGW for Man City was introduced I had to re-think. The first and obvious must make move was Aguero in and to do that I had to sacrifice Lukaku or Kane and due to the blank next week it had to sadly be Kane that I sold. 

I also took a -4 for KDB in for Hazard due to the latter being a risk of not playing and the opportunity for another doubler. Then after reading the news about Snodgrass & Chambers injury I did look ahead to next week and with the plans of having a player who also plays next week I did Chambers to Mawson who has been in good form and he does have attacking returns in him. This is move that I would’ve done next week anyway but I figured He had a better liklihood of returns compared to Daniels away to United or Snodgrass against Chelsea.

My team this week was an easy selection with Snodgrass first sub, Daniels second and Morgan third. I am using the triple captain chip on Aguero for the simple fact he’s FPL gold and plays Stoke then Sunderland. This is the same man who has five goals a game in him and with Jesus out and a good game in the cup he’s as sure of a starting spot as he ever will be. Good luck all!

I ended my last team selection post by saying it was a make or break week and it was a huge failure. I scored 33 (-8) so 25 in a week that averaged a score of 47! To add to the misery Alonso, Hazard and Costa all failed to get more than the basic two appearance points. In addition to this the whole of the rest of my team did besides Baines, Chadli and Forster.

This week I wasn’t going to make a change because I planned for this week and had players but Alli who was sent off in the last game for Spurs (none league) loses his place for Brady. It seems an odd pick but Brady faces his former team Hull and then the Swans with no blank in 28 so it’s a huge plus. It frees around £3m too! Captain this week is Lukaku against Sunderland and Daniels benched is the only big call for me this week.
