It’s been a while between drinks for the FPL Wash-Up posts, after the International Break gave Fantasy managers a week off. GW9 kicks off tonight, but let’s firstly review GW8.
SCT Manager of the Round: Zafir Ahmed, Z-bangers: 119 points
SCT League Leader: Adam Brady, Awkward Science: 52nd overall
Despite conceding four goals to Manchester City (or Sergio Aguero to be more accurate), Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) made 8 saves, including a penalty to take him six points clear at the top of the list of shot-stoppers and with friendly fixtures in the next four for Spurs, he’s your main man if in the market for a keeper. Forster (£5.2m) has only conceded five goals in 8 games, with Southampton boasting the best defensive record in the Premier League. His fixtures are equally as kind as Lloris’ in the next four.
Freshman PC Member Bonsai got in early this week. Here’s what he wanted:
Moonee Valley Race 8 – The Cox Plate
Side Glance – $5 Win @ 26, $10 Place @ 6.40
Got more of Bonsai!’s bets this evening. I just want to say, I love a polite punter. Here’s his email to me:
With the NFL and A-League rounds commencing tomorrow, below are my Multi Bets (selections in RED) for the week. Note that the Denver v San Diego game starts tomorrow morning AEST.
The last of my bet will be a $20 Quaddie on the MV races which I will email you by COB tomorrow.
If it’s not already apparent…my simple philosophy is “bet small win big”…here’s hoping J
NFL Week 8 Multi
Burls’ first bet for tomorrow is a multi:
Newcastle race 2 number 1 – Bridge Of Sighs (WIN) into
Caulfield r1 number 2 – Azkadallia (WIN) into
Randwick r1 number 11 – Tempt Me Not (PLACE) into
Caulfield r4 number 13 – Crafty (PLACE)
$25 @ Dividend
Burls’ second bet is a $25 quinella in the last at Caulfield:
R10 – 3 Anatina and 4 Cradle Me
(This is very unusual betting for Burls. Normally he loves a roughie. All of these bets look quite realistic! He must be trying to get a return for the club for the first time ever.)
Schwarzwalder has been in touch and given me the directions for his $25 worth of bonus bets.
None of you will be surprised to learn its a European soccer multi:
Spain Primera Division
Real Madrid -1 (Handicap), 1.44
Barcelona -1 (Handicap), 1.25
If you could take the reigns at SC-HQ, how would you change the game? More prize money? No byes? More/less trades? A better emergency system? It seems SuperCoach wants to know our thoughts in a survey: http://tinyurl.com/kcc7crx. Whether we’ll be able to have any influence or not is yet to be seen.
Or are you an “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” sort of person?
The Blundstone boots that Hawker promised the winners of our LoEC, SCTTL, and Draft leagues turned up at my place today.
Can’t wait to deliver them to sodes, Leo Messi, Yiorgakis and David Johnson!
