    Hmm not much settled so far, will the evening games this week make the difference or will the business end of the season continue to not be very season-defining?

    I suppose I am happy to have mostly got away with spending 12 points on transfers and not fielding any Liverpool players, but I'm starting to get bored with 'it could have been much worse'.

    Aguero wont play tomorrow, no surprise there. At least my triple captaining of him wasnt a complete and utter dud but it still adds to my sense that this double gameweek hasnt gone that well.

    Well there were press conferences today and Pep said he is out.

    Alonso sounds like he is out for Chelsea too (hamstring).

    And in tonights games, Rashford is absent (illness I think). Martial on bench.

    And so, as jostling and bunching up continue at various positions in the non-h2h league, the stage is set for an epic climax to the double gameweek tonight. Or another damp squib. Or a bit of both. I can hardly contain myself.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    Just checked, captaining Jimenez might be a wise decision , bagged me 24 points :thumbs:

    Yeah I havent got him as captain but I was pretty happy last night when they finally decided to give him the 2nd assist points after all.

    Way too much rotation! Which might still serve me well given people who triple captained Sterling just above me in the non-h2h. My Higuain differential has been a dismal failure though.

    You won. I gambled on a load of transfers and most of them were either rotated or did nothing.

    Yes, but at least it is free entertainment! Given how bothersome it can still be even with nothing real at stake, I'm sure glad I dont bet on sports with actual money.

    The week worked out well for me in the end, improved my standing in leagues, got just over 100 points etc.

    102 points - 12 = 90pts for you.

    It is a good job you don't gamble with this kind of thinking. It's like those fellas down the pub who say, "just won the £250 quid jackpot on the fruities", but don't tell you they sunk £160 chasing it. :facepalm:

    Still, a good result, well done! :thumbs:

    Thanks, I think ;). I have an interest in both the points I score without taking into account transfer points, and totals that do take that into account. I also like to think about transfer points spent in terms of the average across the entire season, and also in comparison to how many bonus points I got across the season. My current average weekly transfer points spend across the season so far is 5.25 (168 points spent on transfers so far in total). Bonus points (including multiplied bonus points due to captain) are currently averaging 7.31 per week, 234 in total.

    Since I am at unexpected heights in the h2h league I suppose it is tempting for me to change my transfer points spending strategy in order to attempt to maintain my winning streak, but I doubt I will. My already feeble team for this next gamesweek suffered further crushing blows due to Bournemouth changing goalkeeper and someone getting injured, so I will have to use my wildcard to get through this weekend, rather than saving it for building a team suitable for gameweek 35 doubles.

    Nice. Only 6 of my entire squad are even playing this week.

    (and one of them is injured)

    it's meant i didn't have a very good team for the past few weeks tho, so not sure it's been worth it all in the end...

    I know you have 10 goalie points to come from the bench but even taking that into account Butchers is still ahead of you in your h2h game, ha ha. Granted he will still require Aubameyang and Kolasinac to get within a point of Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Luiz and Higuains totals to maintain his lead over you but it could happen! (or something like that, I havent double-checked)

    I don't get the goalie points. Boric started. He just let a shit load of goals in for a big fat zero.

    :(
