TWO FPL VETERANS REVEAL EVERYTHING IN A HEAD-TO-HEAD FIGHT FOR FPL GLORY
UPDATED EVERY GAMEWEEK

WHAT IS

FPL DIARY?

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.

TOBY'S LINEUP: GW10

Truth be told it was a disappointing GW9 for me. Just 49 points and I took a -8 so it was more like 41 points. Still, many of the decisions I made were for the long term so I'm confident the next few GWs will be much better. 

So to my GW10 team: I'm really happy with it. So much so that I'm rolling the FT and, as planned Vardy will be my captain with that juicy-looking home fixture to Fulham. 

I think there's a chance that Cancelo could be benched this week but I've got KWP waiting in the wings which is all good. 

Ideally I'd like to have KDB over Sterling but given that he's 0.1m more expensive that Sterling I can't do that in one move. So rolling my FT will give me a bit of flexibility next week. That might include trying to get KDB in but I'm also not sold on City at the moment. They have great fixtures but there's something not quite right about them. It's a wait and see for me right now. Good luck all. 

GIANNI'S LINEUP: GW10

With a plan to bring in KDB this week, the unexpected KDB price rise cost me 8 points last week - I couldn't bring in James and settled for Targett. I saved the funds I need to move for KDB and after the hurt of last week, it's a move I simply have to make now!

I don't like taking too many risks but have no option with my OR. It's all in on City (again) and win or bust! Despite his crazy high ownership and brilliant form, Son makes way for KDB who will be joining Sterling in my midfield. To continue with the City theme - KDB gets the armband.

With no Pope, and a new contract on the table, surely City bang this weekend...

I'm not crazy on my backline this weekend but I am expecting returns a plenty in midfield and up top. Salah and DCL have been firing and I fancy both Werner and Bamford to produce the goods this weekend too. No Bruno/Vardy scares me a bit but you can't have them all.

Toby is lightyears ahead of me and I can kiss goodbye to a top 10k finish, which is sad. But it's a long season and I have to remain confident. I have only missed out on the top 100k once in the last 9 years so I have to believe it's still a possible milestone this season.
