With very little time between Gameweeks, Anthony and Tom smash through a quick turnaround pod covering Correspondence on what to do without any eye test and cover lots of ground with listener questions.Back next Gameweek.
This week, Anthony and Tom are joined by Andy (Let's Talk FPL) to discuss the forwards in Fantasy Football and analyse what is going on with them this season - they're in a poor state.Also featuring correspondence on defender purchase strategies and new manager bounces in a packed podcast.League code: 2ip43t
Tom is joined in the old school by Nick, subbing in for Anthony who's sadly red flagged this week!This time, we look (with 4 managerial changes since we last podded) at if the new manager bounce" could presage a destruction of the template going forward.Also, the Correspondence focuses on the mid-priced mids, plus if in the questions is it too late to jump on the Chelsea wing backs, should we set up differently for the Xmas period (especially if on wildcard) and should we maybe this week diverge from Salah (c) (no!!!)League code: 2ip43t
WGTA - Back Next Week!

WGTA - Back Next Week!


Just a quick note to say we'll be back next week - normally we do straight after the Gameweek has finished but doing it the other way around this time.Speak soon!
This week, Anthony and Tom are back to discuss how the fabled "200 Club" may shake out for the season ahead by looking back at the past outcomes 10 Gameweeks into the season!Otherwise it's the usual stuff including Market Forces and a look at whether, in the Correspondence, we should consider TC on Mo Salah in this imperious form. Plus listener's questins on a depth of questions such as what do we do with City and Chelsea assets and the upcoming Spurs and United fixture improvement!League code: 2ip43t
This week, Anthony and I are joined by top manager @FPLMatthew to discuss fine margins in FPL. We know the answer, let's make no bones about that! But it's about the journey that gets us there in terms of the Always Captain Salah meta and how we deal with that as managers.Plus Tom's ruminating over an epically bad week, the usual stuff in terms of market forces etc, and Correspondence on red herrings and listener questions on things like the Chelsea and City situation and being on tilt when it comes to bad outcomes.League code is 2ip43t. Email us for Correspondence at next week.
WGTA returns after International Break! Sadly Anthony is unwell so Tom is joined by the legend that is Karam Tayser (often on the Scoutcast) to talk about how things have unfolded this week.And, well, unfold they have: pivoting from a correspondence question during a week fuelled by defensive returns and Salah doing the business as captain for most, we look into the idea that, maybe, we should just captain Salah until the turn of the year! Is there any gravitas in doing so?Also, in the listener questions, it's all on Brentford, the City mids and whether big at the back is here to stay...
Join Anthony, Tom and special guest Abdul (aka FPL Salah) to discuss top transfer targets at all tiers, in all positions as we move into wildcard season for many managers, or elsewhere into transitional transfers for many. It's a time for choices to be made in many places and we're here to assist!Elsewhere, the Correspondence focuses on taking the Bench Boost chip to levels outside of the norm, as well as listener questions on the Pep roulette and whether the Threemium has been consigned to the bin...
Anthony and Tom are back after a bit of a meh Gameweek in truth, primed to answer a Correspondence in a pod which leads with that to look into how much we should we reacting to the upcoming shift in fixture fortunes for many clubs.Alongside the usual ML update and fixture questions, we look into the listener questions which again picks up on defensive picks, one week punts prior to wildcarding and mid price midfield hierarchies.League code is 2ip43tBack next week to talk all things wildcard with FPL Salah!
Tom and Anthony are joined by Surya from AllAboutFPL this week for an in-depth look at the defence - where do we invest, and what players catch our eye at this stage of the season?Additionally, the correspondence calls out the 4.5s (DUFFY!!) as well as listener questions on things like midfield malaise, if we're still going to sell Ronaldo as early as telegraphed and goalkeeper transfers.Enjoy, speak next week!
The international snoozefest is over, meaning Tom and Anthony are back to look over the new fashion for a "threemium" set up with 3 premium players in FPL. Is this a long term trend? Or is it a flash in the pan after a weekend where the stars aligned for expensive players but the mid priced assets going forward has a gameweek to forget?Elsewhere, the Correspondence features chat about Man City players and the Pep roulette, and in the questions on-the-button issues such as Antonio actions, Leeds pickups and future developments are discussed.The league code this year is 2ip43t.Back next week!
This week, Anthony and Tom are joined by a debutant to podding in James Queralt (@FPL_JQ on twitter) to examine the impact CR7 will have on how we look at FPL this season.Following on from last pod's chat about an aggressive, premium hopping strategy, we turn our focus to look at the players who will enable that - the long term picks in the mid-price range that you'll want to set and forget in defence, midfield and attack.We also speak about Ronaldo himself in the correspondence section, and also answer some listener questions. Plus Tom reveals his reasons for and gives us an initial look into his Wildcard.We will return after Gameweek 4. Enjoy the International Break.
The second Gameweek of the season ends with knees jerking all over the place. As that happens, Anthony and Tom look over how this season's profile is emerging and ask if a more aggressive strategy could open itself up to FPL managers looking to get ahead as the campaign unfolds.Elsewhere, there's correspondence on how much data we need to make decisions, as well as listener questions on things as diverse as the UK govt's exemption lists to if Lukaku is essential.Back next week with James Queralt!
The opening Gameweek has been and gone and we're back - with Nick! - to discuss what we can take from this year's opener with a lot of things to talk about as one of the most explosive first Gameweeks of the season takes place.Elsewhere, in the Correspondence we talk about how the punt picks can make a difference, and among a myriad of listener questions we take on the challenge of seeing what we do if you're got mid priced midfielders transfers in mind.League code: 2ip343tBack next week to discuss what happens in Gameweek 2.
It's the end of preseason! Join Anthony and Tom on a look into whether there are more goals scored on the opening Gameweek than usual as Tom analyses past first weekends to find the truth,Also, via our correspondence, we give analysis about our sides and how things are currently shaping up as another season dawns.GOOD LUCK AHEAD OF GAMEWEEK ONE!We'll be back next week to pick over the wreckage thereof.
With two weeks to go before GW 2021-2, normal service resumes with Anthony and Tom delving into the player list for our annual pricing pod. It's a lengthier edition than our usual fare, packed full of info as it is, which may require a couple of trips!This year, we use the twemplate (twitter + template =) to frame our discussion, looking at the herd picks versus other alternatives, highlighting a great deal of the possible choices out there in all 4 positions at 3 different price points (premium/support/fringe).We also mention where we're at with our own teams, too, reflecting on the conversation.Back next week with a familiar face in the final preseason podcast of this cycle.

Following on from last week's pod on Behavioural Science, this week's pod continues our Summer Specials with an analysis of the relationship between Fandom and FPL.Join Tom, Anthony and top guests Lucy Highnett and Adam Pritchard on a cruise through the ways in which club biases can help, hinder or downright destroy fantasy football objectivity - either when reading  advice from others or in making your own decisions.We'll be back next Monday (26th July) with the third of our three Summer Special pods. This'll be on Analytics and FPL, where we'll be joined by Jamie (aka Wee Rogue) and Simon (aka Analytic FPL) for another in depth conversation about all things statistical.

In a very competitive market this is one of my to-go FPL podcasts, just two players discussing their different approaches to the game but with lots of good advice and stats that has helped my gameweek planning, their Zombie Nation league is also a fun twist on the game.
