    When I tuned in to the Leicester-Spurs game yesterday I realised straight away from listening to the commentators that perhaps I should have paid attention to who was in the running for the golden boot this season. And then Kane rather underlined the point lol.

    It will be very hard to convince me not to save it for whatever is the largest double gameweek.

    Given how many weeks I spent silly points on transfers I am amazed I managed to win as many h2h games as I did, although I would be in the bottom half of that table if I hadnt managed a sustained run of form for several months this side of the new year.

    I know but I just really wanted to beat butchers for the first time. And it worked, destroyed his morale for the rest of the season.

    Just checked - you beat me soundly twice.

    My only bright side this year was downing two triple captains.

    Surely not the Fraser Forster school of psychological warfare? :p

    This was sort of a highlight too:

    My h2h highlight in the latter part of the season was the result of a terrible accident where I spent 16 further points on transfers (20 in total) a week earlier than I meant to by pressing the wrong button. Turns out I would have just lost that week anyway even without that mistake, and then I won the subsequent week which I would have lost if I'd spent the points then as originally planned.

    Would anyone be interested in playing a 'draft' league next season? Either as your main account, or we could make a second account (naughty, naughty) for it?

    If you haven't heard of it, it works a bit like this:

    Each team in the league take turns picking players.
    You can't have the same player in two different teams - just like in real life.
    Transfers happen by two (or more) teams agreeing to transfer players between themselves

    And err, that's it, basically.

    There are websites that help you keep track of your drafts and give help on organizing etc. Some of the stuff I've read recently suggests having a transfer day, usually Friday, whereby if you need to switch a player, it has to be then. It's a bit more involved that normal FPL, but it sounds a lot more interesting, too. And tactical.

    Anyone?

    I'd certainly be interested, although I'd be worried my usual tendency to get distracted and stop paying attention would come into play. It was something I looked at earlier this season, actually.

    Fucks sake. Only 98 points :mad::facepalm: I am pissed off about that. Was sure id finally break an hundred. King aside, 7 of my players only played 1 game & i picked double gamers & bench boosted.

    Big hairy wank puffins.

    I have Stephens the Southampton defender. he never played v Middlesboro. My sub was Jagielka who scored 12 points but i never got the points :mad:

    You should have got an 8 for stephens 2nd game v man utd.
     
  14. sealion

    sealion If you can't dance just nod your head

    I got the 8 points. He never played v Boro so i assumed I would get points for his replacement -jagielka 12 points.

    Nope - if he plays one minute of one double game that's it for the gameweek. No one else comes in.

    Okay thanks. So in hindsight i should have played Jagielka anyway :facepalm: :D

    If other results go our way, the winner of our match could sneak a Top 10 finish butchersapron :D

    Yep - i'd be stupidly happy to get a 10th. That said, i think it's going to be pot luck on sunday with loads of big names, doing 45 minutes or 20 minutes. Might be chaos.

    Fuck me, and she only made 35 transfers including both wildcards!

    If she'd captained Kane instead of Jesus, she'd be ranked 6k!

    Today's big question: will Wenger play Suarez Sanchez, or will he be saved for the cup final? Which actually translates as "do I swap out Suarez for de Bruyne?".

    :hmm: :confused:

    I think he'd be quite happy if he had the option to play suarez.

    Oh hell, and I've just realised Conte might well rest players for next weekend too.

    Damned squad rotation :mad:
    Not following? :confused:

    Ohhhhhh wait :facepalm: :facepalm: :oops:

    Sunday morning, innit :oops: :D

    I gambled that he'd be more likely to play than hazard so swapped them. Esp given that in the past he's sulked if he's not been picked even when recovering from injury.

    Aye, fair shout.

    Hate the last day, never know what the fuck's going on. Especially with Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd with finals to look ahead to.
