    I wish my fantasy memory wasnt that good, because I can vividly recall a buch of players that I had in my team when I first picked it (or subsequently) but took them out when making many, many changes in the weeks before the deadline.

    The following are the ones I can recall off the top of my head, and that will annoy me if they score good points this week. So one already! (Pogba)

    Pogba, Zaha, Arnautovic, Mkhitaryan, Son, Ederson, Mahrez, Lukaku.

    Well, personally I think you did right to remove.

    Pogba is good, but Man U were shite in pre-season. Perfectly sensible decision.

    Zaha, hmm. Might haunt you. Arnie, too. Both good choices.

    Mkhi, nope. Done fuck all in England. New manager might not even like him. Absolutely no reason to choose him (not to say he won't/can't do well).

    Son - will play tomorrow then disappears to the Asian games for a month.

    Ederson - I have him. Expensive, and not the best keeper, but in one of the best teams, so maybe a mistake.

    Mahrez - City rotation. No.

    Lukaku - One goal a game max, no.

    I wasnt much into football before I started playing fantasy, although I did get into Leicester due to them being pretty local to me, people supporting them at work, and me loving a good underdog story and funny managers. Growing up the football fans in my family were Southampton supporters so I tend to like to see them do well too.

    Backing players from teams I dislike in real life has been an issue for me quite a lot, it bothers me and I often get them in and then get rid as soon as I can. Since I've been playing fantasy some of them have been relegated, leaving Man U and Chelsea and maybe a few others that I dont remember right now because I am very tired. I have at least managed to start this season with no players from those teams in my squad.

    Cheers for your thoughts on this. As for Ederson, the number of transfers I tend to make means I have plenty of opportunities to correct any mistakes :p

    Just realised I completely forgot to deliberately choose a vice captain this week, oh well hopefully wont be necessary anyway as it seem to be my goalie lol.

    Butchers has Luke Shaw, so he's off to a flying start!

    Really having to remind myself of that, pretty much every 10 minutes...

    The current overall points leader triple captained shaw. On the first day of the season.

    I bet every player last night had someone triple captaining them though.

    I'm happy to have got a goal on the board already with Vertonghen. Just need Spurs to not concede again though.

    Me to Mrs SI last night as she compiled her team: "Kante will get you steady points as he plays every week but he might not be ready after the world cup and he never scores"
    Kante: "Hold my beer"

    Is there a head to head league going?

    Day 1 and I'm already regretting my choices - pedro was in my team for most of pre-season and I took him out in the last few days. Switched Vert to Davies and back about 10 times. Rejigged my team to upgrade Schlupp to PVA (though at least PVA delivered). Wan Bissaka sitting on my bench with 9 points and it looks likely my entire 11 will start.

    Welcome back FPL :mad:

    Innit :D

    I've been saying to everyone who had him that he was cheap for a reason, he'll get you barely any points...

    Apparently he's scored one goal a season for the last four, so maybe now's a good time to ship him out while his price is high...? :hmm: ;)

    I am somehow left relieved I picked the wrong Utd defender, as now Wan Bissaka is gonna come off my bench to replace Smalling.

    Got away with one there!

    Its going rather well for me so far, my only regret being that I hadnt heard of the bargain Wan-Bissaka.

    Quite a popular pick, 14%. Unlike Pereyra on a mere 0.5%

    Just noticed the edit in the op with the pin number. I guess it's to late now to join the h2h??

    I heard of him but decided Tomkins was more of a goal threat over the season and is nailed-on to start every week.

    I started Tompkins. Palace defence = good value.

    It is, I'm afraid. There's only 20 places and it filled up a while ago.

    Every 5 minutes now. Just 7 [S-E-V-E-N] points while others have 40+ :hmm: :facepalm: :(

    Bloody Richarlison! He was supposed to be a flash-in-the-pan bandwagon that would fail to deliver :mad:

    Neither Sturridge or Shaqiri in the starting line up. That's backfired :facepalm: :facepalm: :oops:
