And we're back..
As expected, I've received numerous messages from fellow FPL managers over the last week. The common thread through them all was coming up short of their lofty wildcard goals. Gameweek 4 for many was to be THE WEEK that they assert dominion over their respective leaderboards. Templates included: Liverpool attackers , primed from their 4-0 thrashing of Arsenal; Man Utd shut-out soldiers yet to concede for the campaign; Harry Kane's omission because he wasn't getting it done prior to week 4 - ditto for Kevin De Bruyne.
For the unlucky 'few' that took the route above, pain and suffering undoubtedly was their portion.
It is said that fortune favors the bold and the brave; and for the 2% or less of managers that included in their line ups Pascal Gross, Danny Welbeck, Jamaal Lascelles, or Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting this rang true. Bravo and well done!

The current top five teams are BobchocoFc, InthEndDsntEvnMorata, Sajat FC, Own Goal, ArRoW.
Sitting in position 90 we find the team with the best score in gameweek four, Phillyhampton. The Bench Boost chip, along with a Harry Kane captaincy brought an impressive return on his investment.
While not the headline grabber, my team was able to secure a respectable 50 points due mainly to the efforts of my front-line trio: Lacazette (captain), Lukaku and Aguero.
How was your gameweek 4? Did you keep the faith in players like De Bruyne and Kane? Did Heaton's injury rob you of a clean sheet, or worse: were you penalized 2 extra points (or four) by the red card inducing tomfoolery of Sadio Mane?
