    I've just got back from Norway, where I swapped EPL FF tactics with a Norwegian Spurs fan :D

    If I'd known this existed I would have got some tips about the Norwegian league too!

    So far I have played my cards just right this week, thanks to Mahrez, Mkhitaryan and Pope. Now I have to see if I survive the sheer number of people who have Kane as captain (I got in Aguero for this captaincy task, having correctly predicted that Firmino would do nout and that Davies would not play and that I could afford Aguero by selling those two)

    Worst thing about playing free hit for week 31 is that I am powerless to respond to any looming price changes in my normal team for a week.

    my hopes for this week rest on tottenham winning about 6-0

    Aguero's out for a few weeks. Won't play the Stoke match. :(

    I think Aguero was going to get rotated and saved for CL anyway since Jesus is back.

    Rough translation (my spanish is shit)

    During training yesterday I suffered an injury in the left something. The medical team have confirmed it'll be a few weeks for recovery. etc

    Puta madre.

    Not you Fez.

    You're my captain Sergio. I've had a shit week, no clean sheets for any defender, no goals or assists for any midfielder or striker, and Jordan fucking Ayew got sent off - and this is how you repay me? Wanker.

    You're dead to me Kun. :(

    Spare a thought for elbows - he's got Ayew coming off the bench for Aguero and if Sterling doesn't play, also Kelly for another -1 :D

    Still a nice score, despite that!

    Ha. Yeah I've got oxlade chamberlain replacing aguero. So that's one point.

    And Salah is my vice captain. There's another 2.

    They all count. :mad:

    Yeah I wont cry because my score was good anyway, despite the comedy negative points waiting on my bench this week has been a success. And it's Sane I've still got left, not Sterling.

    What I might cry about is my aforementioned point about free hit and not being able to make any permanent transfers for a whole week. So I cant truly get rid of Ayew, Kane or Aguero, not to mention various defenders I have that are crap and could fall in value.

    I'm not expecting to retain my lofty position in the non-h2h league by the end of tonight, although it could yet happen if Sane does well relative to the players others have left. Its a weird fantasy football feeling for me, on what has so far been a great fantasy week for me relative to what most have scored so far. I suppose thats what happens when I had the 'shock' of losing Aguero and having what may as well be the bournemouth ball boys from yesterdays match on my bench!

    Yesterdays events caused me not to rave as much about Son as I should have, oh what a star who again joins my merry band of midfield differentials who have made my season so far.

    Anyway the weird feeling is compounded by the strangeness that week 31 may offer with its limited fixtures. As I already harped on about, I've played my free hit now to cope with these fixtures, but have also had a nose at what cards people in the top 10-15 places of the non-h2h league have left. One person has nothing left, another has no wildcard or free hit left, one only has free hit left, another free hit and bench boost, two only have a wildcard left. The rest have mostly everything left. So there should be an interesting mix of people who might use a wildcard or freehit to deal with the coming week, and those trying to cope with only normal transfers, many of whom will have to make do with less than 11 players.

    Yep this is defo the most interesting part of the season so far. The 'templates' that have formed are going to be blown apart this week and I think we'll see a lot of movement (in the league positions) in the next 5 weeks or so.

    Good stuff :cool:

    How much money have you got in the bank now? I can't imagine it's possible to build a £100m+ team out of this week's shit show of fixtures :D

    Indeed :D

    Presently the squad is valued at 96.1 with 9.5 left in the bank :D

    Come Saturday I'm sure you will see me crying about how much my real team has declined in value over the week. I think I am down 0.4 and up 0.1 so far, but thats not considering the players I will want to buy next week that have gone up in price this week, and I would have bought them before they went up if I were not trapped in the free hit zone due to this shitty week 31.

    I attempted to get the most expensive team I could, just to see if it (£100m) could be done. Got close. ~£98m, but I had too many players from one team and got bored of trying out permutations.

    I had a quick go and I think it would be fairly easy to achieve if Sigurdsson wasnt injured and actually looked like a player worth owning this season.

    Im down to a five a side team for this week. I might use the triple captain option and cross my fingers.

    Trying to find out if there's any chance of any of the four matches getting called off :hmm:

    No suggestion, so far...
