    Anyone else not realise the gameweek started last night? Colleague mentioned it as we went out for our Christmas send-off drinks :mad: :facepalm: :oops:

    I didn't, but I'd sorted my team out Wednesday and it turned out ok - 39 points from last night.

    I'm not even in the bastard cup because my score for the qualifying GW wasn't high enough to get me into the top 4m teams.

    FOUR MILLION, and I still couldn't make it.

    This is clearly a 'rebuilding' season for me... :hmm:

    Was very careful not to mention my league position, and not just because I don't know it.

    Feel free to gloat in May when I've left the plumetting team unattended for two months after ragequitting in March :D

    Touche.
    I dare say your unattended team will still do better than my morass of confusion, panic and misinformed asset grabbing.

    I can feel a :facepalm: coming on.

    I was not expecting that from Chelsea - Leicester or West Ham - Watford or the Man City game.

    15 points on the sodding bench as well.

    I think the Palace win was something like 168/1 when City went 1-0 up.

    Jesus christ. My team is a sea of wrecked dreams and unfulfilled promise. Nobody apart from Aubameyang has anything. And Milivojevic is sat there on my bench.

    If I've worked out out right, I think I'm gonna win my cup match on goals scored. Two vs one :facepalm:

    I'm not having a great couple of game weeks, although various wacky results mean I do seem to have gotten away with the bargain-basement defence that I have at the moment more than I would normally expect to. My defence haven't got me many points, but most others peoples defence has been worse than expected too so that's why I somewhat got away with it.

    I'm also having trouble finding the sort of difference maker players that I could actually imagine significantly helping me to get back to a respectable position before the end of the season. Oh well, at least with Mourinho gone and some teams form changing (eg Southampton) there are 5 or so players that may suddenly be of interest and may increase the variety.

    I was looking back at the festive period last season. Sterling, Kane and Salah served me well a year ago, and Hazard was a dud (although I haven't checked whether he found his form as soon as I sold him towards the end of that period). I don't quite have faith that those players will manage the same points haul this time around, but they could yet make my Christmas largely groan-free. I probably would have given Hazard another go but because he did nout yesterday, he will have to impress me one more time before I mess my team up to get him.

    Now then, do something today please Kane, or else I am starting the festive period with rather poor momentum.

    Hazard is 8th in the form table, 2nd on overall points. What more do you need?

    Kane just scrapes the top 20 on form, btw. And he's 13th in the points table. Oh, and he costs £1.5m more.

    Son basically saves my weekend, and all I can think is "bugger, should have captained him" :facepalm: :D

    Could have done without Kate getting a brace too, given how many around me that helped.
     
  20. Puddy_Tat

    Puddy_Tat meh

    son and kane have made about half my points this week

    although also inclined to agree with the sentiment of

    and all a bit tight in my H2H match this week - may come down to bonus points and all the rest of it, as my opponent has done the triple captain thing this week.

    The Boxing Day fixtures look great on paper, but come shortly after 2pm that day I expect to be groaning due to team rotation stuff.
     
  22. Puddy_Tat

    Puddy_Tat meh

    a 72-71 win in the H2H and in to the top 75 in the main league

    :eek:

    Had my transfers all planned out, but wanted to wait for any last minute team news.

    Then forgot :facepalm:

    Second half of my season is going to need bloody miracles :( A lot riding on the deployment of the wildcard.

    Puddy_Tat meh

    i was expecting more from tottenham today.

    and they probably did as well...

    I think, I ave this horrible feeling...that I am about to break what has been my golden rule over how ever many years of FF I've played.

    I might well buy a ManUre player.

    hmph

    tottenham didn't really try in the second half. 8-0 (with the right people scoring) would have been a much better result...

    :p

    Well it took a month since I said that to really get back into the u75 top 50 and stand a chance of staying there by the end of the game week. Depending on how various peoples captains do tonight and tomorrow, I will either be very comfortably well within the top 50 and well positioned to climb further, or still just hanging on by my fingernails like I was at the end of the last game week.

    So I'm happy, especially as what was possibly my most 'bargain basement' ever defence seems to have gotten me through the holiday period and kept the money free for great players like Pogba and Son. I even managed to reduce my weekly transfer spending to more like 4 points than 8 of late, and just managed my first '0 points on transfers this week' of the season (not including wildcards). Time to shake things up again!

    I have Martial left this week as a significant differential compared to most teams, so I hope he does something tonight.
