AND WHITE LIES.
If cream rises, I am sour.
My season has stagnated and I am not the only one it seems.
I scored 86 points this week, the average was 64. A small green arrow. Well that’s something. But I feel nothing.
One of the biggest stories of GW24 was the collateral damage caused by the preceding FA Cup games (3 days before). A lot of teams, which had been steadily built with GW24 in mind were all yellow (well amber).
Also the template team was impacted, Justin was stretchered off (amongst other casualties). Alas not enough of them moved over to Lowton to reap his 17 points. And did no one get the memo about Fulham assets ?
I decided to do nothing and roll a transfer into GW24 – I wanted to be as flexible as possible entering GW25, with a hope that more double game weeks would be announced.
I still have my Triple Captain chip, I doubt we will see better (double) game weeks to play it after GW28.
Mee, Gundogan, and Stones played one of their potential two matches. Martinez did Martinez things.
Well that was short and sweet. And sour.
I think FPL Fatigue is real and it’s happening now. Time for some tactical advice, from me, Pep and Mr Vardy.
I should press when we know we’ve got a chance of winning the ball. Before, I’d have probably sprinted from right-back to left-back and back across again, which is just burning energy up for no reason.
It’s about keeping that energy and that mindset so you’re ready to (he clicks his fingers) fully go 100 per cent when you know that there is a chance to win the ball, rather than trying to do that when there is a 10 per cent chance of winning the ball.Jamie Vardy
Sometimes you are the winger, others the goal post.
Pacing yourself throughout the season, knowing when to attack, when to consolidate and when to play defensively, isn’t always easy, especially when you live in the moment.
You don’t have to win every game week,keep sharp, be like Vardy, watch the game and take the best chances.
