I dare say totally pointless, but used my two free transfers to ship Auba and Firmy for Vardy and Jimi.

Free up quite a fund to tidy up elsewhere.
What if they get injured while getting back fitness? If there's no mid-pre-season there'll be some heavy training surely.

What if the ones i took out got injured though.
It's freebie transfers to shape the team. No loss at all really.

If it restarts, there won't be any weird skewed weeks with half teams not playing. So a wildcard could sort it out anyway.

This is odd, not only am I moving up in the rankings a little bit each game week, but also, my team value has increased by 0.4 since they stopped playing.

Some people just can't get enough, I guess.

I've been making a transfer every week since the lockdown mate, my team was in dire need of changes and I'm in my best ever season .

I must have made about half a dozen transfers so far and for the first time in ages I'm really happy with the team!. So if the season doesn't restart I'm going to be in tears mate .

IT is possible though that these will be the prices which are in place for next season . Took a screenshot of the team just in case

I was going to make use of the FT's but I'm happy with what I've got bar a Spurs attacker.

Hasn't reset. The deadline for the original GW38 has passed so for now it's looking like how it normally does after GW38 ("My team" tab is gone and you can't make further transfers). This will obviously chance if/when the remaining fixture list is released. Until that point you can't make further transfers because there is no GW39 for the time being.

Will be interesting to see how they solve it. Will there be one gigantic GW39 with all fixtures or will they down the normal 10 games per GW route. The latter makes the most sense but it will also be a nightmare for the developers because the game isn't coded/designed to work like that.

I don't get why they didn't just freeze the game when the league was suspended. Would have saved them so much hassle down the line.

Yep it was inexplicable allowing people to piss about and make transfers. They'll arguably have had a bit of an advantage on others who didn't, if they make it a 9Gameweek competition going forward.

ye it was strange they left it going with transfers etc - there were even fixtures in the Head 2 Head leagues, I won mine after a run of 8 bus parking 0-0 draws !

Says this when you try to make a transfer now:
'This game has now finished. Thanks for your interest, come back soon to select your squad for next season's game.'

Very strange.

I run a big work league and asked for a few opinions when it stopped.
The guy odds on to win was comfy with either a roll over or a charity donation if it doesn't finish, which was good of him.

But I am still monitoring the premier league. They still sound stubborn about playing it out.

Inexplicable? They basically wrote a statement so we all knew it was a possibility to swap out our teams slowly

Not everyone is so keen they'd have been on the site. They wouldn't think to. Football was shut down!

Ahh, I know there's been corona and all, but surely not checking for an update anywhere for like 6-8 gameweeks, also mean that it's quite alright if you miss out on information. Surely they had to take action too and go a direction, so everyone knew what was going to happen.

It takes a lot of coding effort to rearrange/hault this sort of complex competition, so to me it all seems fair to stick with current code + they didnt knew back then what was going to happen with Premier League games.

Hmm anyone also has acces to transfer section now? By the look of it, we're currently able to transfer as much as we want for free? FPL has made no statement though.

Afraid to test if that's the case. Anyone who's risky or with a spare team, who wants to take the chance? :D

You can't confirm the transfers though so this isn't true. They haven't decided what to do yet but the fact you have been able to make 1 transfer a week up to game week 38 during lockdown makes me believe that there will be no unlimited transfers.

My team is well set up for the last 9 games. However its not well set up for the DGW to start it all off so I will be free hitting most likely. Seems a no brainer for my team as I only have 2 DGW players out of 15.

Cheers - How do we all think it will pan out with double gameweeks? I'd want to free hit too for this one too, but not if there's a better DGW to free-hit. Any ideas?

This will be the only gdw is the rumour. The teams who miss games due to fa cup will play their league games 3 days later and will count as same game week it seems. So freehit seems like best time to play for me. Unless they give us unlimited transfers of course. Then it's a tough decision.

Interesting. Quite a dillemma for me too - Think i'll save it for a hail mary in the very last gameweek though, as I'm only 1-3 transfers away from a good team

Current team:
Ederson - De Gea
Doherty - TAA - Lascelles - Taylor - Tanganga
Bruuuuuno - Martial - KDB - Traore - Mount
Calvert - Aguero - Jimenez

I only have Henderson and KDB so not enough DGW players for my liking. Freehit means I can have 8 or 9 and revert back to my team week after.

Hendo Pope

TAA, Maguire, Boly, (Holgate, Lascelles)

KDB, Bruno, Mane, Son, (Cantwell)

Jiminez Rashford Calvet-Lewin.

Game is live again. Unlimited transfers for everyone!
Seriously?

With this, a freehit and a wildcard left over 9 weeks that's a let off for anyone who laundered their chips off early.

Especially with only one double game week at the start.

Yup. I've got all chips and first thought is to build a DGW BB team.

if make transfers confirm, then change them again and play your free hit, will it keep your first transfers the following week or revert back to your original squad? what do people think?

Good shout - BB is always the biggest ass to use, so smashing one of those together is a good call.

How many teams double game week? 4? So that's 12 players to pick, and 3 quality ones with a single game weeker.

Could be quite a gamechanger if others in the league haven't clocked it.

City are the only team worth doubling up on, right?
Sheffield too I think for the double. Henderson plus maybe Lundstram or Egans.
Could even go tripple defense from them for the double if you use bench boost.

Aubameyang can be worth it too and maybe a cheaper striker from Arsenal like Nketiah who might keep on starting.

Sterling with De Bruyne could be a big differential. Think I am going with him over Aguero.

Currently gone all out with the BB team and ditched Mane and Salah for now...

Henderson, Reina
TAA, Laporte, Lundstram, O'Connell, Saiss
Son, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, McGinn
Aguero, Rashford, Nketiah

McGinn and Nketiah are a bit risky but McGinn was supposed to be getting fit back in March and Nketiah just scored a hattrick and would only be a bench player after.

Plan would be transfer Aguero > Kane for GW31 as cant trust the troll Pep, then either Grealish > Martial GW32 if we are looking good or make a couple of transfers GW33 to bring Salah or Mane back if Pool are pissing me off. So don't think I'm completely jeopardising the team on the whole...

Problem with them is that their fixtures are a bit horrible after (us, Spuds, Arse). I'll probably double-up on the defence but definitely not going triple.

Aboomerang is a good shout, prefer him to Aguero myself as a) cheaper, and b) great fixtures after (and he's a flat track bully :D).

GW 30+ is the only DGW set for the moment. Is it likely we could see more DGW's? I'm tempted to use my BB immediately and get in city and sheff utd players just to get off on a good start. Me thinks people will start to slack towards the end of the season once they know they don't have the chance to win a league etc so makes sense to start off as strong as possible with 9 GWk's remaining.

Hypothetically speaking theres no guarantee that we see out the rest of the season if we get a 2nd wave of coronavirus so I think it makes sense to try and start strong.

I like how the fixtures are spread out, almost a game every day which is good for the boredom.

I think a lot more people will be pissed off in terms of subs etc and there should be some gems out there in terms of transfers.

Thoughts?

What city players (other than KDB) are people getting?

Also some tips on which defenders are good to get in too.

Only one double i believe. The usual depleted fa cup quarters have the league games midweek.

It could be a good shout to do bb immediately. Then maybe wildcard straight after. Then you still have a freehit as a one off total change later.

I am thinking about going with Sterling. Think the break might have done him good.

Sheffield defenders are good to start with for the double. Maybe not so good against us without Henderson after that.

Doherty is always nice to have and TAA too.

I fancy Aguero and Mahrez because both have the potential to haul in a single game.

Would gamble on 3 Sheffield United defenders. Grealish and Auba are must haves.
Jesus might play after the break. Hard to know.

Will be interesting to see what City does with so little to play for in the league.

With how close each game week will be, I guess now it is more important to have an all round team with good bench rather than strongest song 11?

No, it’s a big advantage for those of us with a wildcard saved. Unlimited transfers for the DGW (Bench boost as well if you’ve got it) then wildcard out of it setting yourself up for the remainder.
