    23 points already. And most of my big hitters yet to play :thumbs:

    18. Stupid Newcastle conceding in the last minute, cost me 4 points :mad:

    29 so far (including the 3 bonus that Salah will get) but I had a few duds today and so many people have Salah that I can't get too excited yet. I will move up quite a few places in the non-h2h league tonight but whether it will last remains to be seen.

    Ooh, the plot thickens. The guy in above me in the work league has both Kane and Sterling, with the former captained, so now it's not just personal pride at stake on the performance of those two.

    Could this GW decide the title? Probably not.

    I'm bored so I will play a silly game. Look back at the team you picked for the start of the season, which of those players have done well so far/would be welcome in your team today?

    I had Kolasinac, Salah, Mane and Lukaku.

    Am I just saying this to show off that I scouted Salah before the season began? Maybe :p

    Not that I should gloat, having sold and bought him back twice already so far :D

    I started with Kane, Lukaku, Salah, Jones. All still there, all still getting points.

    Kane, Lukaku, Valencia, Kolasinac. Should have arguably held onto Firmino, but budgets.

    Tom Davies, Zaha and Willian didn't prove to be the bargains I'd hoped they'd be :(

    Zaha injury was most unfortunate but there is still hope for his season, I think I had him in week one and hope it makes sense to buy him back at some point.

    Alli out with a minor hamstring injury! Good thing I didn't bring him in after he looked so impressive against Real Madrid.

    I bought him in last week :mad:

    So much for Kane as a triple Captain. My week now rests on a Man Utd clean sheet and another big haul from Sane

    Bollocks, that Morata goal has taken the shine of the weekend, but given how things could have gone I'll take this so far.

    If Rashford could assist a Valencia double, though...

    This game makes me hate international breaks, I've missed geeking out on this stuff but now it returns. And I have to say I'm rather intrigued by the weeks ahead. So many questions on my mind, such as...

    Will I continue to be punished for having a benched Doucoure instead of a played Richarlison?

    Will Zaha continue to show points potential and will he start performing away from home?

    Will Lukaku start getting more points again now that Pogba is back and Lukaku scored for his country in both of their games? And how will Ibrahimovic slot into things?

    And how much swearing will we all do when teams rotate to cope with the rather large number of games in the next 6 weeks or whatever it is?

    My 'keepers were facing Man Utd and Chelsea today. After seeing Man Utd score 4 on MotD I thought "well, at least I got that right..." :facepalm: :D

    Should have gambled a bit further and brought in Jesus rather than Kane for Aguero, and losing Rashford to afford Kane has cost me too. Ah, well...

    Oops. Forgot to sub Pogba back in. He was on my bench :oops:

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Mighty 4-way battle at the bottom of the H2H league :hmm:

    A fascinating week. Time to splurge 8 or 12 points on transfers I think :D

    I notice there's midweek games coming up after Saturdays games. Does this team you pick for saturday stay in place for the Tues/Weds games ?

    big eejit She looks like Alan Gilzean

    They'll be separate game weeks. So you'll need to remember to re-pick team etc.

    Thanks. No point in using my free hit option then.

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    Well done my Seagulls, well done.

    I end up feeling bad for people in weeks where even getting 80 points isn't enough to guarantee victory in the H2H.

    Meanwhile my cunning transfer plan for the coming week, which involves pumping tons more money into my midfield, is already under threat because of Niasse being charged with diving. But never mind, I am pressing ahead with it anyway.

    I did a 'dry-run wildcard' last night to plan my transfers over the next few weeks. I don't have a wildcard, so it would cost me 20pts if I did it now. Would be a pretty formidable team tho :eek:

    My instinct is to speak too freely about my plans so I am trying hard to keep relatively tight-lipped at the moment. But yeah, some tantalising line-ups are possible. Mind you, I'm sure when I got excited about this in previous seasons my thinking was flawed, too wowed by the headline-grabbing expensive players when it would actually make more sense to keep some of the budget midfielders that have been performing well. Oh well, Im sure I will make the same mistake again!
