Once again this season, we’ve banded together to form our very own FPL site team, otherwise known as 'Team TSZ'. After finishing 1390 in the world in our debut campaign, how will we handle the pressure in the 'difficult second season'?
Decisions will be made collectively after polite discussion. ‘Team TSZ’ consists of:
Trystan Pugh – Sports Content Manager
Tim Blackwell – Chief Sports Data Scientist
Alex Sarwar – Sports Content Writer
HOW DID WE GET ON IN GAMEWEEK 26?
GW points: 49
GW average: 56
GW rank: 5,449,878
Overall rank: 297,970 (▼)
Team TSZ continued a steady decline with a third straight red arrow. Despite our commitment to keeping hold of Mane, it was only rewarded with a disappointing 5 points after he scored the winner at Norwich. That has to be seen as a narrow victory for those in the 'double defence plus Salah' route, but only time will tell if that continues to be the case.
Our misfiring forward line looks very sorry indeed, especially Jordan Ayew who we can't wait to offoad...
GAMEWEEK 27 TEAM
Transfers made: 0
Point deductions: 0
...but alas, the Palace man survives another week! Our thinking behind holding a transfer is that we would like to have two freebies in the back pocket once some double gameweek fixtures start getting announced. The guru on such matters - Ben Crellin - deems there to be a 75% chance that we'll get one in Gameweek 29, and so we are preparing accordingly.
The captaincy goes to TAA. Although the lure of Salah and Mane was strong, and indeed KDB, the fact that we have both Liverpool attackers gave us reason to take a punt on Trent. Not that you can call it much of a punt! Guy's a hero.
Thanks for reading, and good luck in the gameweek!
