    Classic transfer tactics. Save my transfer all week so I have a double transfer this GW. Spend all day I'm pub and blow them both when I get home. Will it pay off? Probably not.

    15 measly points. Others in my work league have players like De Brunye and Iheanacho absolutely battering me :(

    H2H also not looking promising...

    Hoping for a remarkable Ibra/Shaw partnership to miraculously blossom against Watford today :hmm:

    Yep, an Ibra hattrick with 3 shaw assists would be nice :D

    Fucking Capoue, who everyone but me has, ruins Shaw's clean sheet.

    Fuck this game :mad:

    Capoue is amazing value. Having made the mistake of benching him recently, I played him this time. Bit of a shame I had De Gea and Shaw but at least I hedged my bets.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Better week , 64 points should be enough for a 2nd win in the league , and top 15 in the main league #whichisnice

    I don't get how you won that. I was 1 point behind before the Man U game. We both have Ibra and Shaw but I have Ibra captained and also De Gea for an extra point.

    Where did your other points come from?

    He is probably getting 3 bonus points too.

    I had such a great week that I instantly splurged 12 points on transfers :D I was supposed to wait till Costa (maybe) went up in price again before selling him but I forgot and pressed confirm already :D

    Last fridays transfer error has left me transferless this week :facepalm: & im down 2 players.

    I'm not advocating spending as many points on transfers as I often do.

    But I don't understand the hesitancy to spend points if there are players you really want for this week or your team has some gaps you don't want to stomach.

    I know its an especially bad idea to spend lots of points on transfers when indulging in head 2 head leagues, but not transferring in these circumstances is also a risk and so why not spend more points once in a while?

    I dont really know. Im trying to think of an answer why not & the only reason i can come up with is because thats the way i am. I am overly hesitant & averse to risk over the most trivial & inconsequential of matters.

    Well you should play it your way. I'm curious about the risk thing though because I guess one of the points I was trying to get at is that inaction can be just as risky as action.

    You had an accident and played this weeks transfers when you thought it was still the week before, and now one of your major players is injured and another is suspended, or something like that. Surely ts got to be as risky to do nothing about that as it is to spend 4 or 8 points fixing it to one extent or another?

    Anyway sorry for going on, I don't really mind whether you act on this or not and really I think I only offered these thoughts because you sounded so sad about how you were bereft of transfers as we approach the deadline.

    WTF is wrong with Ibra. 4 goals and he wasn't involved in any of them.

    Good job I removed his captaincy this week :rolleyes:

    Karius playing means team 'Get Wellback Soon' will fail to stay on 0 points overall any longer.

    This season so far seems to be brutally punishing those who have tried hard to be different and avoided certain key players so far. Luckily for me my strategy involves being especially dull and sensible with player choices at this stage in order to get as much benefit from player price rises as I can, so I've done quite well, but I will get bored at some point if it carries on like this.
