Raaaather. Won't manage a full-line up next wk - probably others with same probs??
i seem to be making a late surge for mid-table obscurity
I'll have 9 on the field for this week - whether they all play or not is a different matter.
and the problem is that if you flood your team with manchester clubs and arsenal now you'll only put yourself in a worse position when all the other big teams play twice a couple of gameweeks later.
Just checked mine, only 6 of my squad are playing this week.
That's pretty harsh tbf
Just made two transfers so I have 8 scoring players this week. That is obviously assuming all of them play!!!
Ive got ten on the pitch. Weird week.
Big toss-up between Rooney or RVP for captain. Thoughts?
Rooney at OT is usually a shoo-in. But van persie looked pretty sharp this week.
I have rooney and rvp but thinking of going with sessignon for capt as they playing wolves who are utter shit. And it means I don't have to choose between roonpig and rvp.
Well. one of them's gonna score a hat trick. I doubt it's gonna be sessignon..
ok ive gone for the granny-shagger. based on the fact that he's the best player in the league imo, by a stretch. and seems to get better as the season gets older, so to speak, no disrespect to grannies there.
rooney to bang in 3.
Hanging in there after a couple of average weeks. Couple of points behind the no.2 and about 30 off the lead. Still possible, albeit unlikely amongst all the competition.
You need to lost twice in the h2h though as you're miles ahead on the transfer/overall points tiebreaker.
The H2H always strikes me as the League Cup equivalent to the main event, but rest assured that its importance will markedly increase in my mind if I win.
Yes, I'm excited by the prospect of the h2h. It truly is the Champions League of ff trophies.
Prove it by playing a shit team then.
No way Jose. I've got titles elsewhere to fight for, including pub and work leagues. The H2H would be a nice urban bonus mind.
I might even finish the season on the first page (top 50) of the league table!!!
I have bounced up 6 massive places into the top 70! thanks to a captain performance from cisse - a Silva hatrick and a Richards Hatrick would go down nicely now
I left RVP as captain, Rooney gets a double. 2 defenders on the bench score 11 points my 3 defenders on the pitch score 1. Suppose thats why im down in 50th place or thereabouts
Acquisition tips for the upcoming GW? C'mon...
quite a few PL teams / players have 2 matches this FPL week...
Jelavic - he's on fire at the mo and Everton have Fulham / Stoke in double gameweek then Wolves and Newcastle. And they're playing to finish above Liverpool.
Having said all that a) everyone will be buying him b) my team is currently collapsing around my ears so what do I know.
Hmm, just sold RVP & Holt & brought in Cisse & Jellybits. Suppose theyll both now go on a 2 game scoreless streak & RVP & Holt will get 4 each.
slumped to 74th but 7 of my players have 2 games this week, I'm counting on hatricks for all of them in both of the games
Hope not, well except maybe for Cisse, Sessegnon & maybe Simpson.
I have taken your advice. Not so much to try and pull up from 53rd in the Urban league but I am only 56 points off first in my other league so hope to make up some ground there.
In other news, after only having 7 scoring players in that disastrous FA Cup weekend, I know have 8 who are playing twice!
And I hope you made him captain too!
I woke up too late to shuffle my team yesterday morning.
I also have a reasonable Newcastle contingent in my team.
