8 points from 6 players so far.

What a shit show
Feel free to carry on being shit, for the purposes of me getting vaguely close to you by the end of the season so we can have another amusing discussion about points spent on transfers :p

By the way, someone in the non-h2h spent 32 points on transfers in week 28, I wonder if they meant to play their wildcard!

Well at least Hazard starts against Fulham so maybe I will get lucky after bringing him in especially for this game (and perhaps a few subsequent ones depending on how he does this week).

David Luiz is only on the bench, which suits me as my h2h opponent has him.

Come on Vardy, do something other than bashing heads with the Watford goalie.

Ahh thats better, nice one Vardy. He had previously contributed minus one points to my overall total since I had him at the start of the season and if I remember properly he got sent off.

Looks like I got a way with that but it still wasnt much fun watching the Liverpool game without me having Mane or Salah.

Hey ho, got away with spending 8 points two weeks in a row while still going slightly up in the tables instead of down. My season is following the usual pattern for me, will I continue the climb or will I break the pattern and fumble my chips?

Yep, beating top teams getting hammered by abandoned teams. This season. My life.
I know you are pretty h2h focussed but we are storming the top 20 of the non-h2h league in recent weeks. OK storming might be slightly overstating it but you are going up by most measures and you can still make the top 10 in the h2h.

I confess that I still enjoy influencing the top of the h2h table by beating teams that are at those giddy heights, even when I'm not close to those realms myself. Dont you enjoy being a threat each week even if your overall position isnt so hot? I'm not really an optimist but it seems I can usually find some positive angle to gloat about!

I havent noticed quite as many obvious zombie teams this season, I'm sure there are a few out there but I dont remember suffering the humiliation of being mauled by a dead sheep so much this season.

Choosing who to captain seems to have become a nightmare in recent weeks, thats one thing I'm not enjoying at the moment.

Yes, but shush lad you're going to jinx us.

On the h2h, absolutely, evil fun - esp as there is so many on the same points this year.

I cannot shush myself, like the sprinklers at Bournemouth the other week my big gob comes on before the game has even finished.

Astonishing that I'm 2nd in the h2h :D
Football eh? :hmm:
Yeah good stuff!

I am still a little giddy with my progress in the 2nd half of the season. I was 47th at the end of week 20 in the non-h2h and now I am 17th. I was stuck around 14th-16th in the h2h in weeks 21-23 but now I am 5th. The wheels will fall off my wagon at some point, but I just dont know when.

I was about 88th earlier in the season - I was Huddersfield :( but a steady climb since November has seen me reach the top 30 - so I'm now sort of Leicester/Everton :)

I do enjoy the climb, rather than having it all to lose from an early stage! Not sure exactly how far I fell in the non-h2h but I know I was knocking on the door of the top 50 for a good few weeks before I actually made it to 47th by week 20, and things have gone even better since then.

I was going to captain Vardy but bottled it at the last minute. Still doing well this week, just have to survive the people captaining salah, mane or hazard tomorrow.

Not just a little bit of a slag, but a total slag.
Felipe Anderson innit
On a pretty horrible run of form. Played every game this season and looks a bit knackered.

I would go Lanzini. Cheap, seems undamaged by his horrific injury, just recalled to the Argentine squad.

Arnautovic is half arsed. Chicharito is useless. Antonio is a decent bet if he plays. Snodgrass maybe. Carroll is injured again. :)ffs:)

Will probably regret taking a 4 point hit to bring Wilson back in but Bournemouth have a great run in...

I used free hit last time and now have 6 players :(

Is it worth using the wildcard? Or am I just going to have to do it again in a months time?

Well there will be double gameweeks in weeks 32 and 35, although most of these extra games havent been scheduled yet and wont be until this weekends FA cup games are done. Week 33 will have less games than usual, although there will be at least 6 games that week rather than just 5 games this weekend.

I probably would not play my wildcard this week, because then you will probably be scrambling to get back players for week 32. We already know that man utd and wolves are playing twice in week 32, and there is also the international break between this weekends gameweek and the next one, which could cause injuries. If I were in your situation I would spend some points to ensure I had at least 8 or 9 players for this weekend, but that would partly depend on which players I already had that are playing, and who I would have to sacrifice. Maybe you will just have to take this weekend on the chin. If you pick the right captain you might completely get away with it.
