    Well good luck, since there is still a chance the team you ended up with will out perform the one you wanted (and Rashfords groin may make the team a bit more like the one you wanted in the first place).

    was expecting better of wolves.

    and 10 points on the sodding bench so far

    S☼I those funny little plans that never work out right

    Tomkins racking up the points lately. Rashford did well for me tonight with a goal and an assist. Not too bad a week so far. Counting on a Liverpool clean sheet and a cross from Robertson to Salah for the winner tomorrow :D

    Son is off to the Asian cup after the next round of prem games. I think Kane will score fewer after that as well as Son does a lot of running and gets a lot of his assists. Moura or Lamela won't set up as many.

    Just put Rashford in so that means he'll be on the united subs bench watching Lukaku score next time no doubt. Frustrating game innit.

    The h2h table is a bit tight isn't it.

    Ah I think I needed that break after all the xmas footie, but now its back to fantasy football once more. I just hope Son impresses again in his last game before going away.

    My defence is no longer only bargain basement, although I will probably adjust it further again for next week.

    I'm also still waiting for my luck to run out in regards to not having Hazard in my team. Not much I can do about it till one of my expensive players pisses me off though.

    There are going to be rather a lot of bonus points to come shortly today.

    i did see one or two things this week recommending having an arsenal player or three.

    rather glad i didn't bother to do anything about it...

    Kane injured?


    Aguero seems like the obvious choice

    Blumin put Kane in Sunday evening before the injury was on the web site.

    I think Jesus may be the best alternative. Would be Abemayang but the gooners seem off form and play Chelsea and City in the next 3 games.

    I have Auba so I've decided to go with Rashford as Kane replacement. Wasn't sure about Jesus / Aguero game time.

    Wondering if I should have gone with Firmino.

    Seem to have reached the point in the season where those of us who want to indulge in extremely early double game week nerdery can read long articles about likely dates and fixtures affected.

    When are the FPL Blank and Double Gameweeks likely to happen?

    I suppose this is also the time where I repeat the same old story about how the first season I played, I got so many points during the double game weeks that I was left with an overinflated opinion of how magical and fun these weeks can be, when in fact I will struggle to ever have weeks as good as those again.

    Speaking of which, has anyone here ever managed to get 200 points or more in a week? I know that we are lucky to get 100 or more a few times a season, so 200 seems a bit crazy. But since I managed 184 in that double game week that one time, others much have done better at some point and I wondered if anyone had any memories of that sort of thing or past trumps they wanted to reflect on.

    If there was more choice of in form players right now then I would probably talk about that a bit more instead of nerding and nostalging, but things are a bit dull at the moment in regards to variations between teams. January transfer window hasn't done much to liven things up so far and at this rate it will probably remove as many vaguely viable player options as it adds.

    As for my team this week, I was sort of hoping to remain a bit cool on transfer spending, but I already had to get rid of Son and further injuries destroyed my restraint. I suppose it is fitting that I've spent 8 points on transfers for a week where I face fez in the h2h, since we like to banter about my spending on those fronts. But I'd really calmed down recently, by my standards. Ah well, never afraid to spend the points if I have to but I'm not that confident that my team can compensate for this straight away with this weekends fixtures.

    The somewhat improbable task of winning my h2h battle this week requires Sterling to get 12 points more than Bernardo Silva (who is on the bench, 2 points from Richarlison instead if he doesn't come on). I don't expect this to happen but at least it is still vaguely plausible.

    That 2nd Salah goal was pretty hilarious, getting points from that is the real bonus :D

    Fucking Murray; did jack all in my team for weeks, now he grabs a brace :facepalm: :mad: :rolleyes:
  23. elbows

    Looking at both the confirmed and possible blanks and double gameweeks to come this season, I'm not very excited about it, although the actual points haul may end up having nothing to do with what the fixtures look like on paper.

    And now we have the usual man city player selection dilemmas combined with a double gameweek for them so soon after tonights performance. Evertons form doesnt exactly get me excited either. So maybe I will change my habits and not spend many points on this little double gameweek.

    This current gameweek in progress looks like I've done ok because of something I didnt do, rather than something I did. I resisted replacing Jimenez or Aubameyang with someone else. Tomorrow we will find out whether people who finally ditched Hazard picked a week to do it that wont result in soul destroying cries of points lost.

    Puddy_Tat hmm

    I seem to have reached the heights of 5th in the h2h and the top 70 in the league...

    :eek: :hmm:

    Well I guess that despite the weird recent team form and rotation issues, the first rule of fantasy football still applies. Aguero as captain (or triple captain) on the gameweeks where it seems obvious. Especially during double gameweeks where he still only needs one game to make a huge difference.

    The cat live commentary on final score was great, I considered myself lucky to be watching it at the time and had a good laugh.
