    Yeah, KDB seems to be playing much deeper this season. If he keeps playing there, he's not worth the 10m. He's still going to be great for City, but not FPL.

    I shipped him out last week to afford Alonso. Seems like it was a good far!

    Yeah KDB just went down in price last night. I forget which day Silva went up but it was earlier this week.

    This was a swap I was unsure whether to do so I didnt do it before this gameweek, but when I saw De Bruyne about to go down in price it forced my hand last night.

    As for this weeks results so far, its always so 'exciting' when I have the chance to break my all time low score record by getting less than 26 points. Well I suppose I should probably scrape past that score today unless another red card fest is in store.

    So far I have stuck to my plan not to go spend quite so many points on transfers this season, except I cant really congratulate myself too much as this strategy already saw me playing my wildcard on week 2 lol.

    12 point hit they still couldn't take me down!

    FFS, that was a striker catastrophe. Lukaku, Kane and Rooney all firing blanks.

    And Lacazette, Vardy and the cheaper options people may go for like Mounie, Chicharito, Gabbiadini, King, Defoe.

    Makes me wonder what I am playing at with my constant tweaking of Liverpool players in my team - I probably should not have sold Firmino! Morata also starting to look like an interesting option.

    Fantasy football aside, he looks an excellent player - as long as he's fed right.

    I was never as interested in deadline day before i started playing FF :facepalm: :oops:

    Who's everyone keeping an eye on? To be honest, I think all my targets are staying put, although Ox to Liverpool is mildly interesting.
  8. Mahrez could be interesting depending on where he ends up

    Ah, yes, forgot about him. Where did I get the impression Spurs are after him?

    Speaking of, Llorente to Spurs - another Soldado/Jansesn, or the foil/support for Kane they've been looking for? He has the PL experience.

    Renato Sanches at Swansea could be interesting. I mean, it might be more interesting if he were somewhere else, but makes him an option for FF. And if Bony goes back and rediscovers his form...

    Ox to Liverpool means more rotation for their mids.

    You moved top of H2H! Not too shabby, that.

    I got one less than average. Meh.

    Chiquarito next on the chopping block I think. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with my team, despite a poor week.
  17. butchersapron

    butchersapron blood on the walls

    I suppose so, but it's clearly a false position. Not going to stay there with that tally. Been very lucky.

    Your team looks mostly good to me. Xhaka and Hegazi tho :hmm:

    Obviously Mane will be the big headache for the next transfer?

    Why you in a Watford fan league? Thought you were Leeds...

    Mane gone now - changed for KDB. Will bring him back when suspension over. Too good value to ignore. Xhaka is in because i wanted a low price guaranteed starter who can get the odd assist - Wenger is in love with him so he'll get time. Maybe should havce gone with carrol at swansea or barry to free up some money. He stays for now. Hegazi - we all need a lanky bloke who can knock in corners. Plus i think he's made me about 0.2 in transfer stuff.

    Watford league as we're not up yet.

    Fair play on Hegazi and the money. I brought in Mooy for the same reason - bit of freeing up fund along with a +1 transfer value because of the bandwagon.

    Not convinced on Xhaka though. He's had as many assists this season as he got all last season. He can't/won't keep it up. Plus Arsenal seem worse this season - for now.

    KDB is a weird one. I had him from the start and planned to just never transfer him out because I know how good he is, and how many assists he produces. But he's playing as a defensive midfielder this season. Annoying that I took him out before his point haul last week, but that's surely just a fluke considering Liverpool were down to 10?

    If he's back to CDM next week, then I reckon he goes back to being pointless/too expensive in Fantasy terms.

    Everyhing's just about right for me at the minute...not too many players I don't have but desperately want. Might have a headache if Coutinho/Hazard/Sanchez come back in and start banging them in. Not the mention Kane :hmm:
  21. butchersapron

    butchersapron blood on the walls

    Feels crazy to say it, but KDB is a just a stop-gap if they're not going to play him in an attacking position. Hazard is going to be the headache due to that extra price. Which probably means xhaka isn't safe at all.

    Pogba out for a few weeks, so Chiquarito survives another week.

    Was wondering whether it's worth hanging onto him. I'll definitely be getting him back after the injury, so I'll save two transfers by holding him. My backups are a bit shit tho (Mooy and Carroll).

    Could do a straight swap for Mkhi, but I have a feeling he's not going to be as prolific as he was...or might even get dropped if there's a new formation to cater around lack of Pogba?

    Ahh, decisions, decisions.

    As I've said before, my plan, after spending lots on transfers in my first season and really silly amounts on transfers last season, is to spend a lot less on transfers this year. It's worked out quite well for me so far, although I did blow my first wildcard very early to achieve what I wanted. For example I nearly got rid of Kolasinac last week, and would have in previous seasons, but this year I resisted to save transfer points, and then he got loads of points that week :) Hanging on to Mounie and Chicharito last week was not rewarding though, and since I already had to ditch Mane this week I haven ended up having to keep Mounie for yet another week to avoid spending more than 4 points (I got rid of Chicharito and got Kane).

    I wonder if friday night football caught anyone out with this weeks deadline.

    Because of Brighton v Bournemouth I've got still got Pogba in my squad and two free transfers sitting idle.

    Bollox a rash substitution on friday night cost me there in H2H.

    Took a triple cpt to take me down this week - well judged one.

    Lukaku and Valencia (finally came good!) proper saved my arse this week. Got to sort things out before next week though.
  28. marty21

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    finally a half decent week, 66 points takes me up to just outside the top 50 :D and a second win on the trot in the h2h :cool:

    juice_terry Here is a man who would not take it anymore.

    I needed a stroke of luck after having victory snatched away the previous week .. i thought Lukaku may have scored more against Everton and was disappointed he let Martial take the penalty.. sorry to ruin your 100% record

    After the week Lukaku missed a penalty and ended up wth 0 points, I was only too happy for someone else take it :D
