Eh? Who's gone?
I've got 2.4m in the bank but I can't see for the life of me where to try to improve this week. Some very big head to heads in the Prem. Think I'll leave it til next week.
International break (ie Gameweek 12 isn't till Nov 18th) so a good time to take the foot off the transfer pedal in case of injuries during international duty or changes in form after the break.
Although its easy for me to say that because I already had most of the players that people have been transferring in in large numbers for this week.
Over half a million piled onto Kane since the real madrid match.
He didn't even bloody score
In which he didn't score!
Well, that does it. I've been bothering all week whether to stick with Aguero and Salah or take a 4-point hit to bring in Kane and Sterling, but now Kane's price has gone up I'm £0.1m sort, so decision made for me
Been unable to get to the transfer page for a full hour now. Running out of time.
edit: or my team page. Great.
Huge top of the table H2H clash this weekend. Astonishingly I'm top and I'm playing 2nd place. Think it might be time for a triple captain card.
You on your phone butchersapron ?
Nope, seems to be chrome problem - working on edge now.
Was thinking about the bench boost option but having read up it makes far more sense to play this in a double fixtures week, like w/c Friday 24th Nov.
Well, now i don't know if my changes went through because at 11-25 i had to help a lost amazon courier and only got back at 11-29 clicked save just as clock went to 11-30.
I've taken to doing stuff on a Thursday night cos of this weird thing they do now with Friday night games
Thats not the sort of double game week that such advice relates to.
ie it doesn't mean a calendar week where there happen to be 2 game weeks due to everyone playing midweek as well as the weekend.
It means the double game weeks that occur later in the season, after various fixtures have been postponed and need to be re-added to the schedule. These games still fall within the same game week in the fantasy system, so a whole bunch of players get to play twice in a single game week.
Anyway yes, for the previous 2 seasons that I have played this game, I've used both bench boost and triple captain in weeks like that to great effect. And this year there is the prospect of using the 'free hit' to either get rid of players for a week where their games are postponed, or bring the best ones in for a double-gameweek without being stuck with them after that week ends.
Ah, right. So the games w/c Nov 24th - that's two "gameweeks" in the space of 9 days or whatever, yes?
I basically conned my way into 2nd in the work league off the back of a fortunately-deployed triple-captain in a late season double gameweek.
Three game weeks in 9 days:
gw 13 commencing 24th nov.
gw 14 commencing 28th nov.
gw 15 commencing 2nd dec.
Sometimes trying to explain this stuff adds further confusion so I find it easier to forget about calendar weeks altogether and just go by gameweeks. None of the game weeks I mention above are 'special' because every team is still only playing once in each of those gameweeks. The special double gameweeks don't tend to occur till quite late in the season, into the week 30-somethings, and we have to deal with the shit weeks where some teams don't play at all first.
I suppose I should also point out that the quality of the special double-gameweeks is bound to vary depending on what postponements actually happen - I don't remember any weather-related postponements last season and a lot of them were due to things like cup game replays and which teams get to the latter stages of the FA cup, for example. I've not been paying proper attention but if the league cup used to result in postponements due to replays, there is less of that this year because they changed the rules to use extra time & penalties instead of replays?
It's just not the same without butchers telling me off for 'helping' people
Slim pickings so far. All the action tomorrow?
Always looked that way based on the fixtures, with the possible exception of the late West Ham Liverpool game where Mane is in the starting lineup!
I'm not having much luck benching the right goalkeeper this season.
No spark in this game yet either, yawn.
Finally some points on the board. Thanks, Salah!
So far, so good...
Cheers, Burnley. Cheers.
