So did I.
When I first started playing fantasy football, I started to pay attention to jokes and chatter about players that had injury-prone reputations.
I think Sturridge just cemented his rep, not that it needed any
I have Rodriguez so good news for me.
Finally sold Matic & Tammy. Hit autopick & got Niasse & Clucas & half a million in the bank.
Why do i always forget that its FA cup week!
Week 31 has a hilarious lack of teams to choose from now, thank god for the free hit card!
Well that was a pretty dull week as far as most fantasy teams went. Just the chance of the Thursday game being a big differential. Which makes me nervous as I have no man city players this week, but I do have Mkhitaryan, err, maybe he can make a difference to the Arsenal performance compared to yesterdays, hmmmm dont think I will bet money on that!
Did a load of teams vanish from the league?
Not that I know of, and I'm not seeing tell-tell signs of that. What you seen that makes you think that?
Certainly going into this week there were a lot of places just a little shy of the top slots and down to around 14th place that were separated by not many points at all. So there has been a fair amount of shifting round in those positions so far this week despite not all that much large variation in points this week. And it wont take all that many man city points to send me tumbling back down to at least where I was before this week began, if not lower.
I was somewhere outside the top 10 in the main league and thought the leaders were miles ahead, now I'm 4th and only 30 points off the top.
Apologies if I am looking at the wrong team, but I think you probably soared last gameweek with 103 points?
I was in 14th before this week started, and I had 1523 points at the time, and a large number of the places above me didnt have scores very much higher than that. So I dont think you started the week outside the top 10. But maybe I am looking at the wrong team!
Either way, I'm reasonably familiar with the overall state of the top 15 and whatever the explanation for your unexpected position, I can say with some confidence that its not due to a lot of teams dropping out of the league.
I forgot that if Spurs won last night then they wouldn't play in GW31 either. I added two of their players this GW in anticipation of them playing that GW
In the general market Salah is at £10.5m, but I can only get £9.8m for him!
That's me yes. I dunno. I'd given up on the main league but back in contention now for whatever reason.
Why, oh why, would you ever want to sell him anyway?!
Anyone who knows about these things care to hazard a guess as to how much weather-related disruption there will be this weekend?
I know there was lots of talk about tonights game being at risk and they've since said its still on but subject to review if things worsen.
I don't particularly, was just looking at relative market value and that stung!
I usually take it as a great sign that I bought a player before their meteoric rise in value and managed not to sell him ever since. I had Salah in week 1 but sold and bought him back on 2 or 3 occasions so more fool me.
Salah's up £1.1m from my purchase price, which makes it unlikely I'll sell him. Barring injury, of course.
Same with Sterling (+£0.9m) and Firminho (+£0.8m)
I didnt hesitate to sell Sterling before this week started because I only sold at 0.3 less than his current purchase price at the time, and he has fallen 0.2 since then. Dunno yet if I will buy him back or a different man city player.
Looking like he won't play tonight, either.
But if tonight gets called off, the match will be replayed in GW31, which is the shite one with no one playing. Could be a good buy (back)
I will probably use my free hit for week 31, even though it looks like a crap week whatever is done and so seems like a waste of that card. But from what you've just said, if that scenario were to happen then I could probably get away with week 31 using normal transfers instead.
I kept Son for twice as long as I normally keep players who arent getting good fantasy points, in part because of todays fixture. And he has rewarded my rare patience with a goal, nice one Son.
I transferred him out for D.Silva cos I was worried he wouldn't start.
Dropped Dunk & he only goes & scores at the right bloody end
I had two options this week:
1) Doucoure for Gross
2) Son for Eriksen
Went for option 1). It was the wrong option
I fucked up. Got pissed last night and forgot to sort my team. Transfer lost. Captain not changed (though Salah's a good fallback in case of forgetfulness usually). Fuck.
Complete dud of a game, FF-wise. My GK and DF concede one goal to ruin their clean sheet, and neither of my two Liverpool players have anything to do with it
Glad I moved captaincy from Salah to Kane; at least there's still a chance of getting something.
I also moved captaincy from Salah to Kane. Was wracking my brain to think of a substitution I could make before I hit upon changing Dr Gea for Ederson. But happy with my team (provided Mounie gets a goal between now and the end of the season).
kenedy ffs. He can't even spell his own name right but he's fucked me in the h2h already.
Separate names with a comma.
