Thoughts on GW1 and beyond 💭:
FPL is back with a bang and there are some really high scores floating around. It’s an odd feeling to kick off the campaign with 93 points and yet feel that was a fairly average result.
I believe it is WAY too early to be drawing any major conclusions but the things which have caught my eye are as follows:
- It seems clear to me that the home advantage has regained its teeth and this factor should have a higher weighting in our transfer strategy.
- VAR offside checks were clearly more lenient on several occasions in the opening gameweek. Bruno’s third goal, for example, is unlikely to have counted last season.
With only one week’s worth of data, and no fires to put out, I’ll probably be banking the FT for GW3.
