Hive fpl ~ Rip it Up and Start Again ~ The BIG reset!

Hello Hello Hivers and especially to all my fellow hivefpl fans!

Yep, I did it, I just used my fluffing wildcard.

I was slipping behind in the league, and I thought what the fluff was the point of keeping my free hit card for later in the season when I am so fluffing far behind that it would make no difference.

So today, I did it, I bit the bullet I took the chance, I sacked my whole team.

I ripped it all up and started again.

I love my footy but I also love my music, and being Scottish I was reminded of this song by a Scottish Indie Band from the 80s...


So a wee bit of oldies music for any reader who is reading but not particularly interested in the mechanics of the fantasy football league!

Yes I am looking at you Super Eli @coquicoin 😋

This was how Tengo Rangers finished week 5...

I did not even make the Average Points total, so what hope had I to get to the top!

To coin a football phrase ~ SFA!

I had only just transferred in Rodrigo and he goes and gets himself fluffing injured!

Originally I had meant to have Jesus from Arsenal in my team, well I effed that up as well and he was not there.

Action Baby Action!

Yep, I decided that transfer(s) were required.

There is a certain striker at Manchester City that needs to be incuded. Yes you know it, Haaland and could I afford not to include Salah as well?

Two transfers were not cutting it, as I would need to juggle players to raise the funds to buy both Haaland and Salah.

My mind was made up!!

The 🪓AXE🪓 had to fll!

Of my squad of 15 players I have kept two...

Can you guess the two who survived the cull?

WEEK 5 SQUAD

GOALKEEPERS
🪓 Ramsdale Arsenal
🪓 Alisson Liverpool

DEFENDERS
⚽️ Cancelo Man City ⚽️

🪓 Alexander-Arnold Liverpool
🪓 Trippier Newcastle
🪓 Gabriel Arsenal
🪓 N.Williams Nott'm Forest

MIDFIELDERS
🪓 Rodrigo Leeds
🪓 Neto Wolves
🪓 Saka Arsenal
🪓 Zaha Crystal Palace
🪓 Bailey Aston Villa

FORWARDS
⚽️ Mitrović Fulham ⚽️
🪓 Kane Spurs
🪓 Johnson Forest

The Survivors!

  • Cancelo from Man City, I just had to keep. Do you see anyone challenging them for the title this year?
    I don't and think they are going to romp to the League title, perhaps the focus on the Champions League might cause a hiccup but I doubt it.

  • Mitrović from Fulham, I am so glad he is proving his doubters wrong. Much has been made of his'failures' previously when Fulham were promoted. They seem a different team this time, and he is working his socks off, I had him from the start and think he is good value. So survive the axe is exactly what happened.

PLAYING the WILDCARD

What is a wildcard?

A wildcard allows you to make unlimited free transfers throughout a Gameweek. Playing a wildcard will remove any points deductions from transfers already made in the same Gameweek.

I figured out who I wanted and played my wildcard.

Screenshot 2022-09-02 15.19.46.png

So I got rid of 13 out of 15 players.

Surprise,surprise! The first two I brought in were Haaland and Salah.

I then picked Jesus like I had originally intended to.

The New TENGO RANGERS Squad

GOALKEEPERS

Henderson Notts Forest
Raya Brentford

With the top teams shipping goals left right and centre picking a point scoring goalie is harder that it appears. Henderson I think with his penalty saves is a shrewd choice and Raya from Brentford another good low cost alternative. Brentford aren't just making up the numbers, and I think they will keep a few cleansheets against many of the teams around them.

DEFENDERS

Cancelo Man City
He creates and can score and plays for Man City,one of my two survivors.
Veltman Brighton
Brighton are showing again how tough they are to beat.They don't score many but they don't concede many either. A good cheap point scorer.
Perišić Spurs
I had thought about him for my original squad but ended up with Son (binned at gameweek 4) and Kane. Another potential point scorer.
Saliba Arsenal
He can score and he can assist, yes Arsenal have had an easy set of games so far, but I think they will be up there and will have some clean sheets along the way.
Dalot Man United
Finally I picked a Manchester United player. Recent results would indicate that the new manager is steadying the ship. Dalot is looking a good bet and was cheap too.

MIDFIELDERS

Bernardo Man City There will be plenty of rotation with the City games this season with the push to win the CL. They will score goals for fun and I expect a few assists for Bernardo.
Groß Brighton Each season they seem to go from strength to strength and expect some good points week, this week at home to Leicester who are in freefall could be a good week.
Martinelli Arsenal Whilst I don't rate Arsenal as title challengers, they will score a hell of alot of goals from midfield. Let's see what he does at Old Trafford this week.
Salah Liverpool Say no more! I had to do it, the ultimate in FOMO He is now due goals, but have I jinxed him by putting him in my team!
Longstaff Newcastle I was left with $4.5 million for my last player, and it was tossup between Longstaff and Milner. I plumped for Longstaff, I don't think there is much between between but expect Longstaff to get more minutes.

FORWARDS

Mitrović Fulham The second of my original squad members to make the cut. Fulham are here to make a go of it this season, and I can see him picking up some more good point weeks.
Haaland Man Even if he only comes on as a sub he can score a hat trick. You simply cannot not have him in your team.
Jesus Arsenal Such a great player and will score goals for Arsenal, I think he is good value. He makes up a good trio of strikers for Tengo Rangers

image.png

So this is my set up for gameweek 6.

What do you think?

It sure as hell is a fluffing improvement 🤣
image.png

I can still make changes to my squad until 11am Saturday morning!

But I think this is as good as I can do!

I would love to hear your thoughts so....

Many thanks for reading, and if you are playing hivefpl good luck!

If you are not playing, there is still time, it is free and you could win some hive. Check out hivefpl play for free and join in the fun and win

Great decision, especially bringing in Haaland. That guy is a beast. I regret removing the captain armband from him and giving Salah in Gameweek 5, it affected my result a lot.

A beast he really is, the only thing is his injury record, but he will score when he plays that is for sure!
Ah that cost you a few points, mind you Salah is due some goals!

I am sure you had doubts about Haaland🙂, but honestly, that Viking needs to be Captained every week on FPL. I was sure from day week 1 he was going to bang goals in the EPL that is why I made him my captain ever since week one.

I did not think he would be this prolific to be honest, but he is on fire!

Now, this is what I call a proper FPL team. The previous team will probably do well in the Fantasy Championship League ( Wait, FCL doesn't exist, right?)

I also got in Rodrigo for Neto last GW and the dude got injured. Replaced him with Groß. This week should be good, your team looks solid.

A solid team I think I agree.

Rodrigo's injury was a shame, missed the bandwagon.

I have wanted to do this since game week three, but never could bring my hand to bit the "confirm transfer" button. Seemed a bit rash. But now that I know I am not alone, I'm off to do mine

This was what I did too... I ripped it off and started again. It was messing with my head and emotions and I had to do it 🤣🤣😂😂. I wish I took Salah off too. That guy is getting me angry already 😂😂🤣😂😂🤣. Mitrovic is a good option flanked by Haaland and Jesus. I wish I got Kane into my team too.

Wow! This was quite a sports report! Too bad I'm not that familiar with Scottish Football, sorry! 😊

But recently Desirée Moinsivais - a Mexican player - just transfer to the Glasgow City - women's club.

Oh did she, for a long time GlasgowCity were the best Scottish women's football team, up until a couple of years ago I think they had won the league 14 times in a row!
Good luck to Desirée!

You did better than me in gameweek 5. I was also thinking of using a wildcard, but I held off and I'm happy I did, cause my team performed ok in gameweek 6, even though a lot of people had bad gameweeks.

I'm curious, how did your first game after wildcarding go

Still glad I made the change otherwise I would have waited and waited and it would have been far too late!
