TWO FPL VETERANS REVEAL EVERYTHING IN A HEAD-TO-HEAD FIGHT FOR FPL GLORY
UPDATED EVERY GAMEWEEK
In 2019, FPL veterans Toby & Gianni (six top 1% finishes in the last seven seasons) wrote a book called Fantasy Premier League: Unlocking The Secrets to A Top 1% Finish. The aim was to help good players become great players with comprehensive FPL hints and tips. FPL Diary is the continuation of that book.
Each gameweek, a few hours before the deadline, Toby and Gianni will reveal their team with a few words on why they did what they did. Take inspiration. Hell, copy it if you want. But ignore these FPL tips at your peril.
That's it; free weekly FPL advice from two perennial top 1% finishers, no strings.
MEET TWO OF FPL'S FINEST...
LATEST ENTRY: GW34+
NEXT GW DEADLINE IN:
TOBY'S LINEUP: GW34+
I didn't have a bad FH (76 points) but Gianni had a great one (96). It's really set me back. Annoyingly, despite picking three City starters, they all blanked. And I picked the wrong captain in Salah would only got 6 points versus Bruno and Martial's mega hauls.
Anyway onto GW34+.
No changes for me this week. Annoyingly I lose a FT from pre FH but I've got a plan for GW35+ that requires two free transfers.
It's a toss up between KDB (the best player in the league) and Bruno. Gut feel says KDB. Let's go!
GIANNI'S LINEUP: GW34+
What a fun free hit that was! Jumped to 13k overall rank and increased my lead over Toby - going against the grain and not picking (or captaining) Bruno was a bold call but it kind of worked out in the end because Martial came in and got only one point fewer.
Back to the week ahead - I fancy City to go chicken oriental (mental) against the Toon Army. Foden comes in and KDB gets the armband - surely both have to start after being rested at the weekend? I always feel like the ceiling with a Man City asset is super high which is why I always like to back their attacking assets. Newcastle have started to concede and are without a few key men so I really do think if City score early we could be seeing them put four or five away.
Elsewhere Aurier gets the nod over DCL in the starting line-up but I do expect one of my players to miss out through injury or rotation and in a way hope DCL comes in because he really is due a goal. If he blanks again he will be out of my team for GW35+.
I'm keeping the faith with two men I'm seeing a lot of people ship on. Salah and Jimenez have been brilliant this season and have earned the right to have a few quiet weeks.
Surely this is the week I break in to the top 10k!?
