"Genuinely not sure I could have won without it" Jason Barlow 2017/18 overall winner "Ian that is a fantastic bit of kit. very, very clever." Dan Cox 2016/2017 overall winner I don't think this needs any more introduction than the above two quotes from the last two winners. If you play Sky Fantasy Football and…

Hope you guys find it useful, and if there are any queries just fire away.

I do have the good fortune to be away this week, however holiday resort Internet is better than it used to be!

Excellent resource again, Ian. Gets you organised and this is perfect for planning ahead. Transfer count always seems to drop too quickly though.....! Many thanks for your time and effort getting this together.

Love this toolkit, Ian. Was lucky enough to have access to it last year and it became increasingly essential as the season progressed. Made navigating that ridiculous TV schedule over the final weeks so much easier.

Given how this year has started with the Friday and Monday night games, can see this being vital from the off for me so thanks for posting it.

Provisional attacking line-up for November 19th, having used only 6 transfers thus far to get there:

Antonio (C)
Salah
Hazard
Mkhitaryan

Lacazette
Kane
Aguero

Note: 2 players (Sanchez being one) will have already been transferred in/out from this front seven.

Guesses to the other player (he hasn't been in my side so far) in the the replies box :)

Nice line-up and planning, Ian. Jesus now for Aguero, although his ribs might heal for a re-think by Nov 19th. I'm guessing Vardy is the in/out hokey-cokey man??!!

Have you used 6 transfers to date, Ian? Or are you aiming to have used that to achieve this team, which would be impressive. I got rid of Knockaert yesterday which took me to 33 transfers left - a few more than I should have used.....

This team will be as a result of the half dozen transfers. I have only made one so far.

Now looking at this front 8 on November 26th, having just used 5 transfers to get there:

Richarlison
Salah
Hazard
Mkhitaryan

Sanchez A
Kane
Aguero

Only 2 matches where I won't have had an attacking captain in that period.

Jamie Vardy is the player that will have been and gone.

Or this with 7, if Aguero and Pogba are back:

Richarlison
Salah
Hazard
de Bruyne
Pogba

Aguero
Kane

Did you get Hazard in last week as well Ian? Last nights performance bodes well if you did.

Yes, brought him in for Mooy. Originally the move was planned for this week, with Chelsea due to play on Monday.

Hopefully he can repeat Wednesday's form :)

Also giving the spreadsheet a proper go forthe first time. I had a tentative look before the season began, was a bit hesitant and just left it. Having had another look and played about it with a bit more the benefits are immediately obvious and I regret not taking advantage of it earlier in the season. Will save much scribbling down, adding up and neatly brings together a few things I would usually have looked at in isolation. Hopefully the greater potential for proper planning will help me nudge up a few placings between now and the end of the season. Thanks Ian!

You know I find the toolkit essential, Ian. Lots of really positive chat on the Sky Fantasy Football Facebook site.... It's the only reason I really use Facebook, Ian, and it would be great to have you on board. Really is very good with lots of top contributors.... Your input would be highly valued, I know for sure!!

Just to echo these comments Ian. Finding the toolkit very useful especially heading into the busy Christmas period.

I think I remember you saying something about rather gouging your eyes out than joining Facebook... but if you ever change your mind, here is the link

(Only saw your reply now)
Season is fine, it's my first year so I've made a few mistakes in making some transfers too late when I could have doubled up. Current rank is 1607 with 24 transfers left. Using your spreadsheet earlier would have helped no doubt.

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know that I will be doing the next update in a couple of weeks: after the transfer window has closed.

The reason for the hiatus can now be explained: one of my sons had a double lung transplant on Christmas Eve (the best Christmas present anyone has ever had!) He is recovering well in hospital, with the medics seemingly extremely happy with his progress so far :)

Hope all your #SkyFF 2018s have started as well as my personal new year!

Cheers

Ian

Great spreadsheet, thank you, will you be updating after transfer deadline ? I see Richarlison is still a Watford player at mo.
