What To Expect From Chi


Today feels like Christmas Eve; it feels like the game ended so long ago but knowing it’s back this week (and hopefully today) gives me butterflies. I can’t wait to register and look at those prices; get a pen and paper (old school style), start planning while making a million draft teams and continually overthinking things.

I’ve always adapted the content that I produce and the way that I interact with the FPL community and this season that will continue to be the case. The plan is to adapt those captain graphics and blog posts in order to produce something that is more interactive and even more unique. I’m working out the details but I’ll give you more on that as soon as I have it (which should be in about two weeks).

I’ll still be running my free to enter league and a newly formed cash league (codes and league details will be out on launch date). The free league saw some stiff competition and massive numbers enter which made me so proud and as for the cash league; I’ve never seen the standings change so much throughout a season. In the cash league at times different players took the lead and from nowhere Fly with a colossal swoop dominated and won the cash prize.

The format of the free league will stay the same but the cash league will be changing. Entry fee for the 17/18 season will remain at £20 and numbers will be capped again; this time at 25 people to keep things simple (an increase of 10). But the new prize breakdown will see more than just number one take it all (requested by many), it’s as follows;

1st prize : £300

2nd prize : £100

3rd prize : £50

4th prize : £20 

* The team that scores the most points in a single GW will get £15

* The team that is top by the GW before Christmas (19 I think TBC) will get £15

It’s for participants in the U.K. only (sorry), entry fee and prizes rewards will all be by bank transfer, I will DM details to participants. This will be first come first serve and I expect places to fly (see what I did then?! LOL) and like last season I can guarantee a fun league and because numbers are limited, there will be 6 prizes as above everyone will have around a 1/4 chance of walking away with a prize.

I will confirm all these details in a separate post when the game launches.

All the best, @FPLCHI

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! 


My GW35 Team

Chihuahua's Team

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! 


My GW34 Team

Chihuahua's Team

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! 


My GW33 Team

Chihuahua's Team

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 GW32 Team

Chihuahua's Team

I’m slowly and surely losing the fun and thrill of playing this year and that’s down to my decision making and results. Last week again I scored below the average with 38 in an average of 45. GUTTED.

Every player disappointed with just one or two points besides Aguero and Ibra. This week team stays the same with Lingard coming in for Brady who has been a wast of space in my team. Forster starts over Randolph, Daniels first sub with them playing Chelsea, Mawson against West Ham as second sub and lastly Morgan.

Captain based on fixture and form is Aguero again.

Good luck all 🙂 


My GW31 Team

Chihuahua's Team

Last week I scored below average again which is becoming a worrying trend. I scored 39 in a week that averaged 40; with captain Aguero scoring 14. So many of my team disappointed with a single point including; Randolph, Alonso, Baines and Costa.

With a short period between gameweeks I’ve made two changes (-4) with Lukaku and Snodgrass out and Ibr and Zaha in. I’ve got a lot of trouble areas to watch such as Brady, Baines and Alonso but this will do for today.

Team selection was a tough one, I had 11 points on the bench and I want to try and avoid that if I can. I’ve picked Randolph on the bench because they play Arsenal and I can see them conceding a few goals, and for that reason Baines and Mawson too! 

Captain Ibra, he’s rested and should be biting to get back and prove why United should do all they can to keep him next season in what could be a make and break game.

Good luck all 🙂


My GW30 Team

Chihuahua's 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 🙂


My GW29 Team

Chihuahua's Team

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 🙂
