Bet you're feeling a wee bit better now.
Yeah, although that initial joy soon turned to 'oh shit, its one of those weeks where Davies saves me from doom' rather than fun imagining of how many gazillion points I may end up with in total this week.
And now at the time of writing your Arsenal defensive gamble looks to have paid off and you have me beat, though I should hold that thought till the game is actually over!
Just couldn't see any way that brighton - without any strikers - were going to score. Looks like it will be a comfy win with the arsenal bonus but one goal would have turned it upside down.
Well, that was a bad tactic. Rolled two free transfers, even after a terrible week last GW, thinking my team was essentially OK. Turns out it's terrible and I had another shocker, so I've activated my WC. Two free transfers wasted and lots of points lost. D'oh
Im going to get rid of lukaku. Tough fixtures coming up for united and he's not worth the money imo for what he returns.
He's the highest scoring player, except Aguero...who's injured.
He is hindering the rest of my selections because of his price. He has one point more than Morata but costs £1.4 m more. Taking uniteds next four fixtures into account i think it's worth the gamble.
Morata is also injured!
He's doubtful but that's not my point. There are defenders half the price and only a few points off Lukakus total, Midfielders scoring close to what he's got and 3 mill cheaper. I also think united have had easier games than most and thats all he has mustered.
Fair enough, but I'm keeping him.
Who ya going for instead then?
Maybe Vardy and then bolster my midfield witn Hazard.
Congrats! Now I am tempted to free up a small quantity of cash by replacing Kolasinac with Monreal but I should resist such impulses for now.
First Aguero, now Morata - it's Fantasy carnage!
I've lucked out so far in that I've gambled on Lukaku and Kane; just hoping the international break doesn't break them...
I bashed you good. Wildcard before internationals are over?
Lukaku has a slight knock already. Out of the Belgium match and they've already qualified, so should be OK.
You did. Well done
Already wildcarded to take advntage of any price rises/avoid drops. Made 0.2 yesterday and saved a couple of .1s on drops. Need another 0.1 rise tho or my rises are meaningless when I transfer the players out (need 0.2 per player to make profit...)
Oh, I think you were asking why wildcard now, rather than wait?
When you're ona wildcard, you can transfer as many times as you like up to the deadline without a cost. So doing it early, if you're gonna do it, is the best way. Then you can tinker for two weeks and react to price changes/injuries etc.
Careful with selling players you've bought cheap, though, as when you sell you only get half profit, so you might not be able to afford to buy them back.
I'm getting my arse handed to me in the market. I think I've only got £98.5m to play with at the moment
Ah ok. I just don't want to faff about now and then have to do it all over again if there are injuries or car crashes during the break. I've done alright but need to do something with midfield so a clear out is on the way.
I'm not completely happy with my midfield at the moment but this is the wrong time to tinker - this week just gone didnt feature good points for very many midfielders who had performed well on many prior weeks. The Watford lads are the exception along with signs that Coutinho, De Bruyne & Sanchez might be worth having after all. But since I've got some memory (which could be false) of quite a few players form changing after international breaks, let alone potential injuries, in previous seasons, I must resist reading much into these signs yet.
So I cracked. I broke. I panicked.
I played my wild card.
Dispensing almost completely with a goalscoring midfield (apart from Salah) I also cut back a little in defence so I could afford...Morata.
Who is out for at least a month
The number of injuries and teams not on form is leaving me a bit limited for choice and bored at this stage of the season Oh please lets see some different teams and players start to look like options in the next couple of gameweeks!
Load of the big names playing each other over the next 4 weeks - ideal for a bargain hunter like you i would have thought.
Only if some midfielders and forwards from smaller teams other than Watford start performing! Earlier in the season it looked like there were loads of useful bargains to be had but most of them have been one week wonders only so far.
Can't decide who should be my captain this week. Kane isn't scoring many at home , Hazard im tempted by as he may play further forward or jesus if he plays now Aguerro is apparently fit. Games sandwiched between internationals and champions league are not ideal for picking a team.
Finally got rid of Snodgrass. Shame, hes a good wee player when he puts his mind to it.
marty - why the frig have you siggy on the bench? Not just on the bench but last placed on the bench.
Eek ! He hasn't been scoring a lot of points lately but I'm unwilling to get rid as he did well for me last season.
Well this week is a write off. I didn't have time to do a wildcard and then left Lukaku as captain by mistake. He hardly got a touch today. It reminded me of my forlorn existence as rare starter centre forward for the school team.
Lukaku was lucky not to be sent off.
Anyway, why isnt De Bruyne being credited with two assists?
Oops, sorry he has been
