    Ok, cheers. I've already signed up for a work league so I'll need to resign up and get a different team built. Not going to have time to do that today. :-(

    And there are only 20 places in that league, and it tends to fill up a little while before the season starts, so too late to join the u75 H2H league for this season.

    I did twice but thought better of it. City's starting line up is probably harder to call so i'll wait for a few games. I've tried to go with players that will be certain starters.

    It's a good idea, although with some players only just back in training after the world cup, the list of available players in the first gameweek might be missing some big names compared to later on!

    Yeah, I wasnt very happy with their conservative decision to wait another year. Especially as it seemed like more people started to accept VAR as the world cup went on.

    I reckon the tv companies and sponsors may have a say, there can be a lot of added time which eats into there time slots. That and it exposes the cheating that goes on, not good for there product being beamed around the world.

    More fiddling as I remember Son will be off at the Asian Games for a month.....should probably swap a bit of my defence as well, as all but one was at the World Cup till the final weekend. And that one's got a knock.

    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    I think im settled. Probably not though. Not sure. Its very annoying not having one more friday night to decide.

    I assume there are a bunch of press conferences today so I dont rule out a final day of fiddling.

    Last minute tinkering might be done given the deadline day players are now in, but I'm quite settled on my squad for the first two weeks I think.

    It's at times like this I'm reminded of the Mike Tyson quote: "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth."

    (Not the actual quote - the real one is just "until they get hit" - but I prefer the oft-quoted wrong one.)

    Unless he gets injured or something Arnautovic is going to score bucket loads this season.

    I cant make a known mistake today because I have no players in this game.

    At the start of every season I always forget that I have to wait a lot longer than usual to see what everyone elses team is. I dont suppose anyone knows a way round this, ie the fact I cannot click on other teams until the leagues update?

    eg some kind of search facility, eg on a 3rd party website?

    I know I can see other teams if I know what their ID is, but I dont know how to find anyone elses ID. If anyone wants to see my team, I think this link will work:

    Fantasy Premier League, Official Fantasy Football Game of the Premier League

    Please feel free to share your own teams link (the url when you are on the points tab)

    Exactly what I was hoping for. Torn between liking Vardy and being glad it was him, and wishing it was someone nobody owned, like Silva.

    FPL has really changed how I watch football. It goes roughly like this now:

    If my players are playing, I want them to score max points, obvs.
    If my players aren't playing, I want no clean sheets, but for the least owned players to score
    If none of my players are playing and it's two teams that are not really well represented in FPL, then I want the underdog to win, usually.

    For that one season boro were in the Prem and I was playing FPL, I've even hoped other teams score against us when I owned their players (while we win still, of course). Feels dirty :(
