Welcome back to my new game-weekly FPL diary where I am putting all of my thoughts out there for anyone to read. Hopefully they help some of you with your FPL decisions.
THE STORY SO FAR
Below you can see my progress so far this season…
Last Gameweek pts: 38
Total points: 1,574
Scoring five points below average has seen my rank fall back down to 5k.
“Remaining positive” – I’m obviously very disappointed with Gameweek 26, but I still remain happy with my team and will put Gameweek 26 down to a lot of bad luck.
– Captain Sterling produced the miss of the season from 2 yards out.
– I missed out on a Phil Jones clean sheet due to him being unwell.
– Marcos Alonso wasn’t in the squad and Paul Pogba was benched.
I’m hopeful of a much stronger performance in Gameweek 27.
With 1 Free Transfer available, I have decided to use it to upgrade Mbemba and provide more cover in defence. Last week I only fielded 10 players due to Jones and Alonso both not playing, so I feel this will strengthen my squad. I had considered saving the transfer but with news that Leighton Baines is soon to be back in contention (putting Martina’s place at risk), I really must improve my options at the back.
I plan on bringing in Bauer from Stoke City, who are guaranteed to play in Gameweek 31. This will help to give me the option of saving my Free Hit Chip for Gameweek 35, should I decide that is my best move.

NOTE: Each week I will always try to wait until we are close to the deadline before committing to any transfers. (Often Friday night/Saturday morning) This allows me to absorb as much information as possible and not get caught out by any late injury news etc.
This week I’m captaining Mo Salah. He’s been the most consistent player this season and comes up against a Southampton side that have kept only 1 clean sheet in their last 17 Premier League games.
Thank you for reading my FPL diary post, please feel free to comment below with any feedback. I plan on improving the feature as I go along so any suggestions of further information you would like me to include in the future are very welcome. – Good luck in Gameweek 27 guys!
