    So you've taken a hit every week except one following a wildcard. Impressive :D

    I've had quite a good start but not owning Alonso, with Chelsea fixtures, is making me want to wildcard.

    Wildcard played. Yes, I've played it in the middle of a GW, but I figure it's better to get on people before price rises/falls, and then if things go wrong with those I've brought in I can get rid pretty easy, unlike without the wildcard.

    Hate playing it this early in the season, but fuck it, need to do something.

    I played my WC last night. Basically I wanted to shift some money to my defence. Which I've done by upgrading Tomkins to Alonso.

    And my midfield was starting to look flabby.

    I had Salah, Walcott, Eriksen, Bernardo Silva and Neves. Of that lot I only have Neves left in my WC team, and I'm giving him a bit of a Paddington stare.

    I have 2 weeks to fiddle around with it depending on international injuries etc.

    I thought I was doing alright and felt smug about having Richarlison and Mitrovic in from the start but with Liverpool not exactly scoring freely and with tough games coming up and a couple of injuries and suspensions thinking I'd better wildcard it...as you say can tinker in the international break as well.

    I was expecting a bit more from tottenham and a bit less from manchester united today

    Just bought holebas on wildcard for bandwagon price increase.

    Champions League coming up. Fair chance several of my team will be rotated out...to drop Aguerro this week or next week?

    Scary cpt week. Hazard if have.

    Since its been a while since teams played, I dont think I'll get carried away with rotation fears for this weekend, think most will value getting their teams to gel again over resting people (except people who came back rather late from international duty perhaps). Oh I dunno, I shall probably captain Aguero and then if he does nout I shall probably have another reason to swap him for someone else on top of rotation fears in weeks to come.

    I spent 8 points again. Really wanted to have a break from that this week until we had more chance to see how form of teams and players evolves after the break, but there was an injury concern or two in my team and I felt the need to fix one of those and there was the usual tweaking for financial reasons too.

    hmm

    only 2 questionable with injuries after the international break. could have been worse...

    4-5-1 with Mitro on the bench.

    What could possibly go wrong... :hmm:

    Top tip. If only I had him.

    I got Hazard on my wildcard, but didn't captain him. So he basically saved my game week instead of making it.

    I almost swapped Mane out for him, but bottled it :facepalm: :(

    Ryan Fraser is my Hazard. I'm going to let Salah go. He's this season's Clint Dempsey I fear.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Turning into the worse season evah!!!!! :facepalm:

    Its a good thing I enjoy the comedy value of doing badly. Could have been even worse so thanks to Zaha, Aguero, WIlson and Wan-Bissaka for doing something.

    Oh balls, I bought Højbjerg for this week but only because of how cheap he was, so he was on my bench. Such are the perils of getting cheap bench filler who can still actually score from time to time, as opposed to a player who is totally lame.

    one of my players got a negative score, another a zero score.

    and my third (so not used) substitute got 10 points. before bonus points.

    i can feel a relegation struggle coming on

    Mendy didn't play, Ings with 7, AWB with 9, both on my bench... but no, I'll be getting Mitro's 2 measly points.

    I hate this game.

    I always knew swapping Zaha for Ings was 50/50, but bringing Maguire in for Sakho was surely a no brainier?

    D’oh!

    My worst ever start to a fantasy season on urban, might give it up
    and become a pundit on the, know it all channel but have played my
    wildcard so there is hope.

    Played my WC last week and got the lowest score in the top 11 teams in the Urban league. So not a massive success.

    Great stuff, thanks for posting it!

    I wish it had a 'worst in each category' section like it has a best in each category one. Can still work it out quicte quickly by sorting the column of interest in the full stats table there though.

    Take note mockers of my transfer quantity - 2 other players in the league have spent as many points on transfers as me at this stage (although admittedly they havent used their wildcard already and I have lol).

    The potential lost points totals are quite a hilarious and ugly stat, fascinating!

    I've got the most red cards, what do I win?
