    I wouldnt be that confident about Sterling playing either, but really who knows given the way this season is tailing off. Most people have him anyway so not a differential for many, although obviously thats not true for you since you triple captained him.

    I swear there is at lest one team where it looks like they were setup to play bench-boost but just never got round to activating it for this week!

    I need 278 points to beat my highest score which was last season :hmm: it seemed easier then :facepalm:

    There were a shit-tonne of points around in the final weeks last year, eg I got 320 points in the last 3 weeks. This season has had more overall points potential but spread out and often in the weeks least expected. Not been much in the way of devastating <30 point weeks either compared to other seasons.

    Yeah, last year I nabbed 2nd place with a 75 point haul from triple captain Aguero.

    Not particularly confident of Kane doing the same for me tonight :hmm: :(

    I thought that was the case with C.O.Y.S whose bench I posted earlier, but he played his BB earlier in the season.

    It's a baffling bench, tbf.

    I really wanted to do well this week so I could replace my lecture about not being too afraid about spending points on transfers with a handy graphic. But even by my standards I think I went a little too far and cannot quite show the pattern I'd like. To really demonstrate the point I'd need to get back to an overall rank of around 80,000 and that now seems highly implausible. All the same, I think the graphic at least illustrates that if I can spend this many points (0,12,8,12,24,8,24) and not totally collapse then other people shouldnt sweat spending 4 or 8 points here and there!

    If I can just get back to a rank of at least 111,104 then I can at least demonstrate 2 recent occasions where I spent 24 points and still improved overall rank on those weeks!

    I doubt I will manage that either though because lots of people around me have triple captain active and it wont take much to send me in the other direction.

    I've taken hits in 6 different game weeeks and only two of them I increased my rank.

    This week looks to be paying off so far, and it's my biggest hit, but hits in a double are less expensive, effectively, as you should get two games out of your player coming in....

    lol you inspired me to check out my own stats for that....

    I took a hit in 27 different weeks :D In 13 of them I increased my rank and in 13 I decreased my rank :D Too early to judge this week yet so I've left it out.

    At least my bonus points this season have paid for my transfers: 241 bonus points so far, 224 points spent on transfers so far :D

    Much more restrained than last season when I managed to spend 320 points on transfers! In my first season I already had this transfer-happy approach but spent a more reasonable 180 points on transfers that year.

    I haven't sacrificed any points on transfers this season and I'm having my worse season ever in terms of position , make of that what you will . Screenshot_20180509-145142.png

    What sort of spending did you do in other seasons? Just the occasional 4 points here and there apart from special occasions?

    This season just isnt the same without the threat of Costa getting a red card!

    And I know its too early for this really but are there any prospective players for next season that may join the premier league and be interesting fantasy options?

    I could do with Alli and Vardy getting lots of points, Jesus not getting many, and Kane doing ok but not too well. Oh and I keep forgetting about Aubameyang, dammit no points there either please!

    Any week where I get dragged into hoping other peoples players do badly, rather than cheering my own players, is not good. And there have been too many of those this season, especially the weeks that we expected so much more from!

    I'm struggling to think of anyone I know that had a successful triple captain at any stage this season. Although I am still speaking of this matter several hours too soon!

    The suspense continues, nothing is settled so far, etc.

    Kane is so shit at the moment - my goalie would have got an assist too if it were not for Kane fumbling his lines again.

    Finally Kane found the net.

    Even though it'll cost me points I'm praying for a WHU goal here....Takes H2H out of renegadechicken's hands!

    C'mon arnie! :)

    I think I've drawn with purves grundy and probably handed you the H2H title.

    And fuck you Pep. 1 minute from De Bruyne would've done me.

    Whoops, yeah, double fuck up there. Got the wrong person and got my sums wrong. I thought Salah was coming off his bench for 1 but only 3 starting defenders meant he couldn't.

    I'm glad the season is nearly over, since I probably need to do a few transfers for the last games but the choices are rather uninspiring given the lack of form from most quarters in recent games.
