    Look at the front page during the first matches. There's 1,000s of transfers as soon as the GW starts.

    Madness.

    Even I dont transfer that early! I keep a keen eye on prices though, so I do end up having to transfer earlier than I would ideally like on many occasions though. My team value is at 101.3 at the time of writing.

    Had to sacrifice Alonso because of aforementioned price changes, and I will be very upset if Trippier and/or Mkhitaryan do well the next couple of weeks as I bottled it and just went for the current flavours of the month, Mane and Richarlison, taking a 4 point hit to also bring in Ben Davies to give me at least three defenders who will actually make it on the pitch.

    Hopefully Auba will get off the mark against West Ham.

    7,000 people have transferred Richarlson in since the GW started.

    He's just been sent off, likely 3 game ban.

    :facepalm:

    I wonder if this is going to be one of those weeks like last season where Salah saves me from a truly dismal score.

    I'm having a bit of a 'slow' start to the season :facepalm:

    I got rid of kane and brought in Vardy last weekend. This week, I swapped Vardy for Aguero and was going to bring in Richarlison but was 1/2 a mil short. Thank fuck.

    Honestly, you made good decisions. Just unlucky.

    The 7,000 I mentioned have brought in Rich after the deadline, but before the game has even finished.

    That's just mental.

    Getting Wilson in for this week has been one of my better moves so far.

    After my appalling start I've played the wild card early doors :D

    I transferred out his team mate King for him.

    That is a decent increase, I was up to £100.5m but down to £100.4 now.

    Does anyone know if Richarlison's value is likely to fall much further? I had him from the start and can sell him for £6.6 at the moment, tiny profit I know but it adds up. But I think I'd rather keep him provided his price doesn't fall further - his price to buy was £6.8m and I think now it's £6.7m but he's suspended for 3 games.

    He'll probably fall again I reckon.

    Just for clarification, though, he's only suspended for two premier league matches. One of his three is a cup match.

    Ooooh, good point - back in time for Arsenal away!

    I think he will fall again but if he only falls to £6.6m I assume I could still sell him at that price? Maybe. :confused:

    No, you got him at 6.5, which means you would need to sell at 6.7 to make anything (you earn half of the price rise, rounded down).

    Saturday = sorry I sold King.
    Sunday = happy I replaced him with Mitrovic.

    Lloris, away to the Mancs, just after he's been arrested for drink driving? Definitely time to swap him for Pickford for a game!

    Oh, bollocks. Still, my other swaps mean that nothing I did this week makes any difference whatsoever.

    Fuck me that was a tense H2H week. Came down to how many bonus points Trippier got last night. He was on for 3 then got subbed. He got 2 in the end & i won by 1 point :D

    nuffsaid But this goes up to 11

    Couldn't keep hold of Aubameyang any longer, he's just not doing it. (Probably get a hatrick now against Cardiff).

    Replaced with Mitrovic allowing me to get Walcott in for home game against Huddersfield. Should be better than Torreria who also was a bad choice being a defensive midfielder.

    Thanks to Monreal for a decent showing as a sub, saving me at the weekend after Stones didn't play.

    Up to 6th out 41 in the works league...:)

    Well I had to sacrifice another 8 points on transfers this week but at least my team value is now 102.2 and I have a team I am really happy with. Until the next set of red cards and other disasters :D

    I guess I'm at least 30 points behind where I wanted to be at this stage of the season but I am not very flexible when it comes to changing the way I play this game so I am sticking to my usually strategy, which unfortunately involves spending points without too much restraint. Especially at this stage of the season, now I just need to find a few more stretches of the season where I give the transfers a rest to compensate for this early spend lol.

    For normal people, that's just after a wildcard.

    I don't have much hope for you :D

    As a result of this attitude I will shortly be forced to bore you with some statistics about my transfers in previous seasons, and what spells of non-point spending I have mustered historically :D But first I have to bore myself by looking them up.

    The first season I played I only managed three spells where I went 2 weeks in a row without spending points on transfers. There were no times where I managed three weeks in a row without spending points.

    In my second season there was only one time I managed to go two weeks in a row without spending points. And only 6 gameweeks in total where I spent 0 points, and that includes wildcard weeks and the first week lol.

    In my third season, last season, I managed three spells where I went 2 weeks in a row without spending points on transfers. There were 10 gameweeks in total where I spent 0 points, and again that includes wildcard weeks and the first week.

    Bonus stat: In total over the 3 previous seasons I've played, on only 4 occasions have I made no transfers at all in a gameweek!

    I'm interested in transfers made in the week following wildcards. Stat me up, please :)

    First season:
    Week after first wildcard, 2 transfers
    2 weeks after first wildcard, 3 transfers
    Week after 2nd wildcard, 3 transfers
    2 weeks after 2nd wildcard, 4 transfers
    The activity after the 2nd wildcard was more understandable due to activity relating to double gameweeks, and for example the week after the wildcard I got 184 points out of one amazing double gameweek.

    Second season:
    Week after first wildcard, 3 transfers
    2 weeks after first wildcard, 3 transfers
    Week after 2nd wildcard, 0 transfers!!!
    2 weeks after 2nd wildcard, 4 transfers (but two of them were free)

    Third season:
    Week after first wildcard, 2 transfers
    2 weeks after first wildcard, 1 transfer
    Week after 2nd wildcard, 2 transfers
    2 weeks after 2nd wildcard, 3 transfers

    This season:
    Week after first wildcard, 3 transfers
    2 weeks after first wildcard, 3 transfers (thats this coming week ie right now)
