GW 22 Stats

GW 38 Transfers and Team Selection

Please welcome to the last portion of statistics on team selection and transfer activity for this season. See this post for highlights and graphs, FULL STATS are available in THIS GOOGLE SPREADSHEET.

It’s GW 38 today, which means that another season has come to an end. Today, I’m posting my last regular posts, a few posts with season reviews are still to come over the next few days / weeks.

Hopefully, my blog has helped you boost your rank, win a mini league, and better understand the essence of our favorite game. Please consider a little donation for all the efforts and time spent on running it 🙂 Anyway, thanks for being with FPL Discovery during this season. Enjoy the final GW.
