    Looking at my individual stats on that site by clicking on my name, more fun fun fun.

    Now I can nerd on about how 36.24% of my points so far have come from Liverpool, and -1 point from Leicester in total (got Vardy in just in time for him to get a red card)

    Ta. V useful.

    My minutes is appalling, far worse than most of the others near the top. 44 points lost as well isn't great.

    Dont know whether to budge or stick. The way my luck is going, if I ditch Salah now (eg for Hazard) then this plan will still manage to backfire. But it seems some people dont wait till after champions league games are all finished before making transfers, so price changes have been happening. Bah.

    2 bloody awful weeks in a row. Might be time for an early wildcard.

    Fuckssake. It appears I forgot to press the 'Confirm Transfers' button, so my team is now definitely shite

    Yay I only spent 4 points this week, although it does mean I am still without Hazard.

    If you think my transfer points spent are silly, my brother (not an urbanite) is even worse...

    Me: 0,0(wildcard),8,8,8,4 = 28
    Bro: 0, 4,16,4,12,12 = 48

    Had a poor week last time out, and have gone knee-jerk and got Hazard in for Salah, and Zaha in for Callum Wilson.

    On paper my team looks loads crapper than the start of the season and I'm wondering about Aguero being worth it, but we'll see.

    I see the BBC has been pondering whether its time to sell Salah. They also go on about selling Kane but I hardly know anyone who has him in the first place:

    Fantasy football: Is it time to ditch Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane?

    I decided to wait at least one more week, maybe longer, and I was quite surprised he avoided falling in price this week, just, so I guess I am not alone. One reason I didnt do it is that I'm never going to catch up with those doing well if I dont have a bunch of differentials, although obviously not having Hazard is rather a large risk at the moment. Maybe I will yet find a way to keep both Aguero and Salah and still get Hazard in, but its not easy. Mendy being injured helps a little, not that I have sold him yet either.

    Perhaps that would be a tad late, given the first wildcard has to be used this year :D

    Oh my pet hate theme from last season of commentators talking rubbish when Salah misses chances (them claiming its unusual when it really isnt) is loads worse this season now that there is the 'Salah not as good this year' narrative for them to play into. He always missed lots of chances, the only difference this year will be if he doesnt also manage to succeed with plenty of chances.

    Yes Aguero get in there, at least my captain isnt a dud this week, not that this has really been the problem with my season so far.

    Wahey Salah scored :D

    Well, my failure to click the Confirm button doesn't seem to have been too disastrous. 6 points from Markovic would have been nice, instead of the 2 I'll get for bloody Mooy coming in for Ings. But at least it meant I left Salah as Captain, picking me up an extra five points.

    Salah went down in price but there was nothing I could do about it because I cant be buying Hazard when he hasnt even played this weekend yet, let alone the midweek cup game.

    Oh well, I came up with a 'get Hazard without sacrificing Liverpool players' plan, but it leaves me with 0.0 spare money so I will have to pay very close attention to further price changes and wont be surprised if I have to do it before the cup games.

    Balls, had to do my transfers today as it looks increasingly like I would have been 0.2 short if I'd waited till tomorrow. Now watch everyones legs fall off in cup games. My turn to face butchers in the h2h2 next too. Not sure how I could win that one as I've now spent 8 points again and there wont be all that many differences between our two teams, and I dont feel like making a 'unique' choice of captain.

    Do players value change daily?

    Yes, if enough people are buying or selling them. Some pretty complex formulas and rules apply to price changes so I have to use a website such as fplstatistics.co.uk to keep an eye on this stuff. They cant predict with 100% accuracy and in weeks where lots of people are using wildcards the stats can be a bit unreliable, but they get it right far more often than not. The actual price changes themselves happen in the small hours, sort of between 1.30am and 2.30am is how I think of it but maybe a little later or earlier than that for all I know.

    No worries, just be careful, people like me who pay too much attention to this stuff end up finding it hard not to make transfers for price related reasons, and that starts to add up in terms of points spent on transfers, a slippery slope :D

    This is a pretty high points scoring season for people overall so far. For example it is my second best season so far in terms of total points, but my absolute worst in terms of overall rank, by quite a lot.

    I swapped Salah out for Hazard last week, of course Salah scored and Hazard didn't, hoping for some payback tomorrow...:rolleyes:

    Otherwise put Azpilicueta on the bench with Liverpool in town and Kante for Walcott but finally transferred out a redundant bench player, Fuchs, for Boly who is starting for me with Southampton playing at Wolves. Got to try and get Azp out next week and get Alonso in.

    Aguero - el capitan.

    I doubt he can cope with three games in nine days, so he's bound to miss at least one v Brighton, Hoffenheim or Liverpool. I know which one I'd go for

    Hmm...surely they'd want to keep up with Liverpool so need the 3 points tmrw, but Hoffenheim they could probably do without him and then he's rested for Liverpool...no?

    They'll need the three points in the CL as well, and they're away, as they are to Liverpool. they don't need him tomorrow.

    That said, I haven't removed him from my team yet.
