It's like that 80s film, "Football Games"
but if i made a considered decision not to do anything, it would be a crap week...
3 injured strikers so I'm relying on my midfielders to all go goal crazy
And you're up against me in the head to head marty21 with a 4 point head start cos I made an extra sub.
Coutinho injured, too
RIP for me, and the GW hasn't even started yet.
Probably need a 40 point start tbf
I felt the need to 'treat' myself to spending 12 points this week. I'm not allowing myself to do this often this season, but needs must when injuries come a calling.
I've taken a gamble by swapping a premium striker (Jesus) for a budget one (Abrahams) in order to get in Sane cos he looks like he might be the best value player in the whole game.
I might not even field 11 players this week. Kane injured, Cout probably injured, Sterling on the bench.
I've got Mbemba on mine, who hasn't started in weeks.
Your gamble worked
Meanwhile I am gloating because Sane is my captain
Sold Sterling and Hernandez - both scored. Brought in Saleh and Aguero - former missed a penalty and the latter didn't even get on the pitch.
This bloody game...
<edit:>AND FUCKING KOLASNIAC GOT A GOAL AND AN ASSIST!
I trusted you! You damned saboteur!
And now Sterling's price has gone up £0.2m I can't buy the fucker back.
I hate this game so much.
He hasn't gone up in price recently, he costs more than you sold him for due to price rises earlier in the season.
edit - well he went up not long ago, but not this game week, where he was heading in the other direction until he performed yesterday. Quite a bit of Man City player price fluctuation for obvious reasons.
Sorry, I meant from what I sold him for. Sold him last week for £8.0m, he's now £8.2m
Yeah, I should have realised, I posted too soon after getting out of bed!
My 12 points of transfers for this week were a waste - I just about got away with it not totally ruining my overall rank, and it hasn't messed up my budget, but it was a waste of points.
I too sold Kolasinac for Monreal a while ago so this week stung a little, but I have to remember that it was only the previous game week that Monreal got a goal and Kolasinac got 1 point, and Kolasinac is showing as mildly injured now, so not all bad.
League's well tight at the upper mid table. 4 points separating 7th and 12th!
In my work league, 3 points separate 2nd-5th.
1st, last year's winner, is 23 points ahead though
Worst wildcard ever.
I hadn't looked into what the yellow triangle of not doom meant at the time. Apparently a pre-existing tight hip muscle injury that needs managing.
Right , Free Hit played
Found myself watching Burnley Newcastle because of how tight it remains. Still looks pretty tight after that, especially around the 555 points overall total where I am now lurking.
Man, I needed that Burnley result badly this week. Semi respectable score now.
My H2H opponent has played a blinder though
Fuck's sake, Elliot couldn't keep a clean sheet at Burnley, could he? Still, if I've got my sums right then when Aguero gets auto-subbed I'll get an extra 10 points, which puts me 6 points behind first in the work league.
I'll be honest, I keep forgetting to check the urban H2H
Any time I can beat my H2H opponent despite spending 12 points on transfers and making poor benching decisions that left me with 16 points less than I could have had has to be considered a great week and a very lucky escape.
Ah, you can avoid poor bench decisions by picking 3 non playing first teamers like I did.
Then have a non playing bench player as well
I'm having a decent season so far tbh. 2nd in H2H and steadily moving up the Urban table.
Yeah, well done!
Its the first season I have ever managed a sustained decent start to the season. Normally I start off ok on week one, then slide for ages, then make a prolonged steady comeback and top things off with great scores in double ganeweeks. I never get near the top and I don't expect to this season either, but it is nice not to be chasing glory from so far away as I usually am at this stage of the season.
Someone left the non-h2h league? I've not been paying attention to who occupied the slot, but there is nobody in 2nd place anymore!
