    2 points to come off the bench.

    <edit: ah no, thought Smith had 0 because he didn't play, but he did and had points deducted>

    The Bournemouth defender was booked then subbed. Unless I'm looking at the wrong teams.

    Yep, thats why I needed Doucoure to get negative points :D well done :D

    Wahey now sitting at my 2nd highest overall rank ever. If I can just improve it by 3 thousand or so then I will finally beat my highest ever rank (at any stage of any season) which was achieved the first game I ever played, and it was the start of a season where overall rank = gameweek rank so no really the same sort of sustained achievement at all. Oh the giddy heights. Normally I get most of my really impressive points after this stage of the season, when desperately playing catchup, but since I've done better in different ways so far this season I wouldnt be surprised to see this pattern end. But as I'm now starting to get a foothold in the upper section of the non-h2h league maybe I should be trying to hype up this threat, ooh fear me in the double gameweeks to come. In the meantime, watch me squander some of my recent gains by spending a fair few points on transfers.

    Ah yes, didn't connect the dots at the time as I honestly wasn't paying attention to the H2H. I knew I recognised that name from somewhere :oops: :D

    Pretty crazy GW in the end; everyone thinking it was going to be low scoring, and looked like it would be after only one goal in the first half of any of the 3pm k/os. Then all of a sudden some those dark horses came good, and Captain Salah made all the fucking hay.

    I really liked the fact that we had until most matches kicked off to tinker, and that all the games were done with in one day. Just one more reason to hate how much TV messes with the schedule (and I say that as someone who doesn't go to matches).

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    I lost with 63 :( almost all scored by one player :D and as the bottom club won, we are in a life or death struggle for the wooden spoon, 4 points in it :D

    Well theres always the last gameweek for that, as long as Man Utd dont leave a training fake bomb in a toilet and get their game postponed like happened that one season :D

    I just hope there is minimal 'many prem clubs have nothing to play for so start messing with their team selection' at the end of this season. I'm thinking it wasnt that bad a phenomenon last season because I managed 144 and 100 points in the final 2 gameweeks, but I seem to remember it being quite annoying the season before.

    Kane's price has already dropped £0.1m since I checked earlier today :eek: It's a damn fire sale!

    Nah, prices never change during the day, its usually between 1 and 2am. And I had Kane until I was able to sell him once my free hit happened, so I've been keeping an eye on his price. He went down 0.1 during the week I couldnt sell him, and another 0.1 after I sold him on Saturday. I know beause ideally I wanted to wait before making transfers but I had to rush that one as I need all the money I can get. I believe his last price fall was around 1.30am Sunday, and he is about three quarters of the way towards going down again.

    I'm tellin' ya, he was 12.8m earlier today, then by the evening he was down to 12.7m :p

    I have only one dying wish - to take fez down. Keep it in the family for four years straight.

    (that said, i'll not change my team to do that - i'm not that sort of twat)

    ref: h2h ages later

    Well I can prove that he has only fallen in value once since Saturday, because the stats page on the fantasy site can show each players price fall (round), which for Kane is 0.1. Normally I would be able to prove my whole case because we could look at the history for Kane and see what his value was on Saturday. But because his team didnt play in week 31 there is no week 31 listed in his history. The week before he was worth £12.9, and I know that his actual value on Saturday was £12.8 but it seems I cannot prove it.

    I sold Kane (again) on saturday evening, he was 12.8 million.

    First big double-gameweek fixtures are now out. Looks like they've moved the cancelled games from week 35 to take place in week 34.

    No sign of the cancelled games from week 31 on the site right now but I suppose the common expectation is now that those will happen in week 37.

    Slight exception to what I said there, the Burnley Chelsea game that is now scheduled for week 34 was originally a week 31 game, not a week 35 game like the others that have moved to week 34.

    Nice to know that i'm so little a threat now that fez has actually approached his h2h game with me with the double gameweek 34 and burnley being the only team doing that and week 35 uppermost in his mind. Just a stepping stone.

    Did you or the app fuck up, btw?

    You've got de Gea, Smalling Mustafi and Firmino on the bench?! - No bench boost...

    There's still a fair chance you'll win but those De Gea points would've been important.

    I cant believe I spent 12 points on transfers but only fell less than 3000 places overall so far. However this is likely to get worse since lots of people have Aubameyang and my main counter, Mkhitaryan, is on the bloody bench in real life.

    I've sold Salah :oops:

    This might turn out to be a huge mistake...

    Good luck, at least you know its fine for this week. I'm waiting to see who impresses me this week before my final shuffle for double gameweek 34, and that will factor into whether I bench Salah that week or sell him.

    I was mildly surprised by how many people I know sold him without much hesitation this time, although I assume this was made easier by the aforementioned looming double gameweek greed. Given that I sold him about 3 times this season already, I wont be expressing shock at this, unlike err certain other people cough cough who were shocked by tales of selling Salah or people even considering it in this thread in January and March ;)

    tbf, it was shocking before, no question about it. Even with him injured now it's a huge risk, but the CL matches, doubles and potential rotation/limited minutes means it's now a punt that could pay off. But even now it's not neccesarily a sensisble move. He's just that good.

    Stoke. Came off the bench and scored two. Kane had two matches in one GW earlier in the season and scored 3pts I believe.
    Yep, luck. That's all it is now...and thanks :)

    I was going to flog him as well - didn't want to carry 3 liv players (salah+mane and firmino) into either of the DGW's. But rumours last night that firmino was going to be rested this morning led to me getting rid of the other two - i think salah's form justifies him being carried this and next week - not so sure about GW37 at minute though.

    This twitter account has been pissing off scousers by leaking the 100% correct line up each week 24 hours ahead of the match: Anfield Express (@AnfieldExpress) on Twitter

    Worth keeping an eye on :)

    I was wondering why sections of the press seemed fairly confident in their predictions. Cheers for the tip - how long have you known about it? :D
