    Fair enough, one less thing for me to be bitter about.

    My week was saved singlehandedly by having Salah as captain.

    Willian and Azpilicueta left to play tonight, vs butchers in the H2H who has Hazard and Alonso left but is 7 points behind me (inc 3 points to come on from their bench)

    edit - make that 8 points behind, forgot that I have 1 glorious point to come from the bench too.

    Last week: 100k in the world
    This week: 3.5m in the world

    No transfers. This game is fucked.

    Mind you, I got 2 more points than #1 in the OR, so at least I'm in good company...

    At this rate you might be a midseason peaker rather than dipper!

    It's nice to see someone such as your good self exploring well into the top 100,000 for a sustained period of time :)

    I'm doing better than expected as well, and am happy to be doing similar exploration within the top 300,000 :)

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    Danilo still keeping 3rd spot on my bench warm. And maybe some week i will captain Salah. He was the first player i picked but i dont think ive ever captained him.

    Dodged a bullet there. I almost swapped him in for Azpilicueta just because I had a bit of extra cash and no better idea what to do with it.

    Many teams have been disappointing this season from various fantasy perspectives, but I think Chelsea deserve special mention now. Probably in great part because in late November it was possible to salivate over their fixtures on paper for the months that were to come. Now they've mostly been, and,well pah. I'm not moaning all that much about having a Chelsea defender, but the other points from these fixtures didnt often live up to the potential, whether it be down to Chelsea having played a few too many of these games badly or just problems finding people in their team who could get fantasy points somewhat consistently.

    I only bought WIllian in because I was short of ideas & cash when Arnautovic got injured, and already sold him for next week before tonights game even started, but it was still 'interesting' to see these feelings of mine rather underlined by what has happened so far this evening.

    And that was just what I thought after the first half.

    Watford have tried their hardest to stop Hazard getting the bonus point he needs for butchers to beat me in the h2h this week. It might have been enough and will mean we draw instead, though it is too early for me to be confident about this.

    They've just updated the live bonus to give hazard 2...that could change again though. I'd written off this week to be honest.

    Lazy Llama Pretty much as you’d imagine

    Well that sucked a big load of goat balls. Frickin' Azpilicueta - I'm sure he's a great Scrabble score but he bollocksed my H2H match :mad:

    edit - I was too slow with this & butchers beat me to it....

    Or maybe not, now looks more likely that Hazard will get 2 bonus points and so butchers will have beaten me. A nice close race, well done!

    Likewise. I was going to sell him after next week anyway. I might accelerate the process.

    Last week i was cursing Chelsea because i had Bournemouth to win 3-1 & 3-2 and they couldn't score. I sold Hazzard but am happy he scored tonight.

    Started off annoyed that Alonso wasn't playing, ended up glad he didn't. Great performance by Watford. Took full advantage of Chelsea's woefulness.

    I doubt anyone was planning to, but don't get Lallana. He might not be playing for a while. This is from an u23 game :facepalm: :

    I have finally captained the right man after changing my initial choice from De bruyne. 70 odd points so far for me with 5 players still to play. I need to get back on track after a lousy month or so and a slide down the tables.

    I started today 11 points ahead in the work league.

    Of course the guy behind me has Aguero :facepalm: :mad: :(

    I was going to dump him and get Kane, only todays fixture list stopped me doing so. It's the first bit of luck i've have with Aguero and will probably swap and get Kane in for the next 3 or so games.

    Captain Aguero one week, does fuck all. Don't captain him the next week, scores 4. Arse.

    I shall press on without Aguero regardless, wonder if it will mess up the final stretch of my season.

    Butchers has captained Aguero :mad:
