The Triple Captain chip, an alternative POV

‘Save it for a DGW’ may well be your first reaction to the question ‘when should I use my Triple Captain chip?’.

But is it really that straight forward?

Locked in for Gameweek 26

What would you change with this lot?!

Locked in for Gameweek 25

So, four green arrows in a row finally means I’m doing something right when it comes to FPL.

After the fun & games of #GW24, it was only natural to want to jump the gun and bring in an old friend.

Gameweek 24 – What just happened?!

Gameweek 24 of Fantasy Premier League is in the books and…

What just happened?!


Leicester City turned into Barcelona.


Manchester United turned into, well, Manchester United.


Man City turned into a banter brigade.


Bournemouth turned into strawberry Hubba Bubba.


(Seriously, great cause – look it up)

Ross Barkley turned into Andrea Pirlo.



Jamie Vardy turned into Tony Yeboah.


Jordan Ayew turned into Conor McGregor.



Fraser Forster turned into a brick wall.


How did all this affect YOUR FPL team?!

Comment below…

For me, captain Sanchez didn’t quite pay off:

What are you doing tonight? #FFMLive will be back…

So, we’ve gone a weekend without Premier League football.

No points have been added to our dream teams, no dubious decisions have been debated, no fun has been had.

But, what’s this?

Midweek games are here!

Happy days.

So, if you’re up for it, come and join me over on the Fantasy Football Manager YouTube channel at 6.15pm (UK Time), where we’ll chat FPL over a beer in another #FFMLive stream ahead of the 6.45pm deadline and beyond.

I’ll give an update on my league, highlight some top (and interesting) performers, talk about transfers, debate differentials/double gameweeks and turn it over to you.

So, if you want to become active in the live stream and have your transfers talked about, or captain calls called out, tweet your teams to me @FFM_Joe.

Tonight’s edition is being supported by Lay My Bet – who did a guest post on here last week.

They’ve got a great way of making a bit of extra beer money on this week’s Premier League matches, by utilising the oh-so generous offers put on by bookmakers.

I’ve done matched betting myself, so can guarantee this works.
