Well it looks like I got away with the 24 point spend, I have currently managed to improve my overall rank compared to last week and seem to have won my h2h game!
I've dropped a tad in the non-h2h u75 league, but I have to consider it a great success that I'm still in the top 10 scramble at all. Because that last double gameweek wasnt a great success for me and I spent, wait for it, 56 points in the last 4 weeks! So even though I've tumbled somewhat in that league, still being in the mix at all smells like success and leaves me with things to chase after in the closing games.
I've given up pretending to myself that I'm still chasing your number 1 position any longer, the bad double gameweek ended all hope of that and this week seems to have underlined your triumph!
I suppose it could get interesting if I were able to repeat last years feat of getting 320 points in the last 3 games (and spending 20 of them on transfers in the same period) but thats not going to happen! And I only remember those numbers because there wasnt much else for me to cheer with my performance last season, I've enjoyed this season far more.
Newcastle are giving Newcastle a hard time of it too!
at this week
Interesting week so far, with Zaha bringing me many of the points I will no doubt be spending on transfers for next week
Just remains to be seen whether Kane is actually going to have an end of season spurt this time, or whether he is doomed to continue his post-injury/post-goal-claim malaise.
As for Leicester, bah, at this point I think they deserve a worse reputation than even Chelsea for stopping playing properly for managers.
Its not as much fun without the banter.
Spent 20 points. Looked at a range of scenarios for the team I've assembled (+ bench boost) and anywhere from 70 to 180 points seems entirely feasible.
Bah, make that 24 points (had to respond to late injury news).
Last minute tinker & ive sold Silva for Son.
I need 72 points from the next 2 game weeks to beat my highest score.
Playing my bench boost. And its some bench. Salah, Firminho, Robertson & Ederson. Giving my Seagulls a final run out
Should be well doable, but good luck anyway!
Even with my ridiculous points spent on transfers I'm pretty much assured of beating my previous highest total of 2068, only need 28 points to equal it.
I couldnt find a suitably priced replacement for the injured Chilwell so I bought Bong in because fuck racism.
Whos injured? Just in case.
deadline's gone anyway
The aforementioned Chilwell was the injury.
Anyone who kept faith in Sanchez will be pissed off now he isnt in the squad at all this evening. I already had my double-gameweek Sanchez disaster when I triple captained him a few weeks ago so he was already long gone from my squad, and I got Pogba in for this week.
Never heard of him!
He's a Leicester defender that some people got in large part because he was cheap at £4.4 million and started to get to play a lot of games and then got an assist two weeks in a row. Leicester went to shit at around the same time a lot of people got him though.
lol @ the state of this double gameweek so far - like the others this season, its shite!
From bench boost to beach bust via a series of snoozes.
Triple captain on Jesus this week. 0-0 at home to Huddersfield.
First time Salah has gone without scoring in two games since week 7/8
In theory I have 15 players left but its looking very likely that only 11 or 12 will play, and it could easily be as low as 7-9. Oh well.
C.O.Y.S bench (bench boost not active). Auba will come in for Ward but if Valencia plays 1 minute, then no sweet McArthur points. And no way to get at Bellerin's haul.
Actually, there's no way to get McArthur's points, either. Auba for Ward leaves 3 def, so the 2nd auto-sub can't happen.
Sad times whoever you are, C.O.Y.S
And yet I still find myself unhappy at the prospect of not buying him back for this Sundays final game. But I will need something good from players tonight to give me the required points buffer in the battle for 3rd-9th in the non-h2h league. And I dont really imagine getting those points, especially considering likely Man City rotations (eg think David Silva already returned to Spain, no surprise)
I need Kane to pull something out of the bag, otherwise it's almost certainly a successive 2nd place finish in the work league for me
I just hope Sterling (TC) plays! I'm not confident, though. Maybe Silva going home helps here a little?
And I'm worried about the amount of Kane captainers
Oh yeah, Sterling having a good second game would be a boost too.
I brought Kane in at the expense of Aubamayang, so, seriously, need him to do something!
I really wanted Aubameyang and Eriksen instead of Vardy and Alli but I didnt have enough money.
So far only a bit of defensive luck and the failure of everyone elses triple captains has enabled my bench-boosted squad to make up for the 24 points I spent and I dont really expect this to still be the case after tonights games.
I brought in Alli for Eriksen so I'd have more money to spend, then forgot to spend it
