Played my wildcard already
Played mine the 2nd week
Four point hit to ring in the changes. Let's see how it goes...
(Just couldn't justify the paucity in midfield necessary to have a front line of Lukaku, Aguero and Kane )
Same here and no better off for it.
Just about made the right decision about the front line, though missed out on a few extra points captaining Aguero rather than Kane.
Four Chelsea goals but not a jot for Willian is disappointing, though.
And if Lukaku had put that away first time Valencia would have had an assist too
Although they're listed at the same price, I can't switch out Aguero for Lukaku because I can only sell the former for £0.1 less than the latter.
Here's what you could've won - if it wasn't for all your meddling!
Type on your team id to find out what score you'd be on if you'd kept your GW1 team with no transfers...

17 less than where i am now. Which is a surprise because that first team was shit and i'm doing ok now.
Me too. Does it just tell you you're 17 points better off no matter what the truth?
Could someone else try it please?
I just did it for someone else's team in my work league, and it said he'd be on exactly the same score as I would But, he's ahead of me in the league, so the difference is greater than 17.
<edit: and just did it for the team directly beneath me; she'd be 33 points better off and top of the league if she'd made no changes >
The way the What If machine works is it ignores captaincy choice, and subs, I believe. So it's not 100% accurate. For some reason I can't get it to work, so if some kind soul wouldn't mind, could you do mine? Team ID is 1178210
Looks like a bit of a bloodbath for injuries this week. Quite literally in some cases. Aguero has had a serious car crash and will likely be out for weeks/months, with a broken rib.
Vardy's a doubt again. But he did train, so fingers crossed.
Jones is 'injured'. But I reckon that's just Mourinho not wanting him to do England duties.
Eriksson was injured, but looks like he might make the weekend.
Glad I didn't transfer early, but my plan to roll this transfer and do two after international break looks doubtful now.
Great, so it looks like i'm going jesus for aguero then aguero for jesus in the same week.
Can't get your ID to work either.
Thanks for trying.
You transferred out Jesus this week? Man, that's unlucky. At least now you know he's nailed on and not subject to Pep's rotation bollocks.
btw, I found a site that might be useful for checking past performances when thinking about transfers and benching etc. Like how do Burnley usually do against Everton, or whatever.

I got away with it a bit with the Aguero thing; swapped him out for Lukaku earlier in the week, so had it in my plans anyway.
Planning to play my free hit chip. God help me.
Just a bit of advice on that...
I've read conflicting reports but some people claim that the free hit thing is a bit of a con if you've already made a transfer before using the chip. Scenario:
* Make 1+ normal transfers
* Play free hit
Next GW, your team will revert to last week's team, which doesn't include the transfers you made pre-chip. And if those transfers cost you any points, the points deductions remain, even though the transfers are reverted.
However, another account I saw said this is bollocks and the chip undoes any pre-chip hits from that GW.
I don't know which is right, but if you are planning to use it, do it before any normal transfers.
Also, be aware you can't carry over free transfers if you use the free hit. So whether you have 1 or 2 FT banked now, using the chip resets you'll only have one next GW.
Let us know how you get on
i've just spent 4pts swapping in De Gea for Courtois....
Cheers, I've seen a lot of confusing and conflicting opinions about how it works.
I think I've kept it simple, ie I hadn't made any transfers before I played it and I only had one free transfer. So I'm just expecting to revert to my previous team next GW with no fuss.
It might be a bit of a waste but basically I want the moaning Belgian in this week. The other changes are just to make that happen.
Probably going to leave things as they are for this week. Last minute tinkering cost me in H2H so far, except for last week. But even that went to the last minute.
Looks like I am doing battle with butchers this week. I wasnt going to spend any points but the Aguero thing caused me to spend 8, while the '0 transfers this week' stat presently showing for butchers makes me think he has played his wildcard.
This is my third season and so far my plan to spend far less points on transfers is just about intact. I think its been my most consistent start so far - previously I've got a great rank in week 1 and then tended to sink, not forming a sustained recovery till the latter parts of the season. And that recovery has been largely based on doing brilliantly in double game weeks, which I cannot rely on happening every year. Still a tad too early to confidently claim I've had a solid start though, need a few more good weeks yet.
I have played my wildcard yes! I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to show you how many transfers i did this week rather than last week though - it should change to current week after deadline is passed. I had no intention of playing WC but the Aguero thing after already doing my transfers messed up my plans big-time - that with the Jones injury. Which itself, is looking like it may be turn out to not be true. Mess all round.
Can see the current number of transfers in a different section before the deadline (not who you have transferred though):
Says I've got 45 points more than I would have if I'd done no transfers, which sounds about right for me.
Isn't that for gameweek transfers - and it's not gw 7 yet. It's still gw 6.
I've been looking at that number for years, it is for the current week that hasnt officially started yet! eg mine says 3 which is how many I did this week, last week I did 2. Yours says 0 because of your wildcard, but I cant use that as proof because you did 0 last week too.
We've caught them out, glitch in the matrix.
Anyway, good luck for our battle! I'm not feeling too confident this week I have to say.
Ta, me neither, and I'm out most of day so not able to follow too closely.
