    33: The Last One

    33: The Last One

    Waiting On the Bonus Points comes to an emotional close in this final farewell episode.
    We got the band back together for the finale as Mr Emotional Beren Cross returned one last time after an impressive Free Hit score in Blank Gameweek 35.

    Gut man Jak Ball and Stat man David Munday took the opportunity to reveal what their plans are for the season run-in including the best time to deploy their remaining chips.

    But the main focus for this final episode was a look back at our personal highlights of recording this podcast this season.

    We also give you our listeners a special tribute for helping this podcast become such a success. We can’t thank you enough for your support!

    32: How to do Blank Gameweek 35 without a Free Hit chip and why Man City and Arsenal are essential

    32: How to do Blank Gameweek 35 without a Free Hit chip and why Man City and Arsenal are essential

    Our Fantasy Premier League managers discuss two different approaches to Blank Gameweek 35 in our latest podcast.
    We have decided to record in two legs (a la Champions League) this week, while we sit at the Double Gameweek 34 half-way stage.

    David and Jak discuss how their teams are getting on so far with both the Triple Captain and Bench Boost still in play for them.

    But the key discussion topic this week was how to plan for Blank Gameweek 35, with a specific look at the sides who have played their single DGW34 fixture already.

    More importantly, David tells us what his Free Hit squad might look like while Jak explains his approach to BGW35 and the rest of the season because he has no such chip to fall back on.

    31: Best chips to use in FPL Double Gameweek 34 - Bench Boost, Triple Captain or Free Hit

    31: Best chips to use in FPL Double Gameweek 34 - Bench Boost, Triple Captain or Free Hit

    The big double gameweek questions dominate are thinking on the latest episode.
    In particular we assess which of the FPL chips could make the biggest difference for you in DGW34.

    The Bench Boost, Triple Captain and Free Hit all have their merits, but which one will David or Jak go for?

    Whether or not Harry Kane is an essential asset for DGW34 and which Manchester United player is the best to own were two other debates we look to settle.

    That and the little matter of Jak's anger over Kane having his "goal" at Stoke chalked off.

    30: Should I sign Harry Kane ahead of Gameweek 33 after early return from injury?

    30: Should I sign Harry Kane ahead of Gameweek 33 after early return from injury?

    To Kane or not to Kane? That is the question ahead of Spurs' trip to Stoke in Gameweek 33.
    The talismanic striker Sir Harold returned way ahead of schedule in Gameweek 32 and has both David and Jak worried about getting him back.

    We discuss whether it's worth breaking even a Wildcard team to transfer him in as well as the future of Roberto Firmino and Chelsea players in our team.

    The latest assist controversy, involving Son Heung-min and Skhodran Mustafi, got given some well-earned air time with Jak particularly unhappy!

    29: Best time to play Wildcard chip and best players to sign for double gameweeks

    29: Best time to play Wildcard chip and best players to sign for double gameweeks

    Waiting On the Bonus Points discusses the best time to Wildcard as the FPL community debates the pros and cons of Gameweek 32 and 33.
    Our own bosses David Munday and Jak Ball pick out some of the most essential players to include on the Wildcard for those playing it this week and answer some of your questions.

    Anyone with queries over Manchester City post-title win, whether to include Roberto Firmino for much longer and the best Leicester player to have, Jamie Vardy or Riyad Mahrez will hopefully find this week's episode helpful!

    Blank Gameweek 31 also gets a thorough review after Free Hitters enjoyed their biggest green arrows of the season.

    Have a listen to see if we gave you the manager of the week award!

    28: Should you sign FPL players who won't play in a blank gameweek?

    28: Should you sign FPL players who won't play in a blank gameweek?

    Whether or not you should sign players who don’t have a fixture in the next gameweek is a subject of discussion on Waiting On the Bonus Points this week.
    Some FPL managers have been transferring in the likes of Son Heung-min, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford for Gameweek 31, despite the fact that they will not play – because of their involvement in the FA Cup.

    With discussions about how to plan for the upcoming blank and double gameweeks without Wildcard and Free Hit chips, David and Jak speculate if this is how some managers are future-proofing their squads.

    Our very small of players eligible to be signed in Blank Gameweek 31 increases slightly this week after some differentials emerged in Gameweek 30.

    That means David and Jak have been able to update their very unreliable-looking BGW31 squad.

    With injuries to Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane we also look ahead at some potential long-term replacements for them if they end up sidelined permanently.
