Both those benches have more than my starting IX
Decision to leave Arnautovic out of my starting lineup for a Bournemouth defender JUSTIFIED
Remains to be seen whether leaving Mendy out of my starting lineup is also a good idea
Features I would like to see in FPL: the ability to search your league for which managers have which players. Need to know who, if anyone, that Sterling goal has helped out
Two assists and what's looking like a clean sheet for Mendy
This game has made my score look a little more respectable, but really could have done with captain Aguero doing something to help counter all those Salah and Mane points everyone else had.
Ah well, first weekend, plenty of points to play for.
I was thinking of writing some scripts for shit like this. Might give it a go when I get some spare time. Keep the ideas coming...
Also, been keeping an eye on a certain transfer trigger happy urbanite as the sheer number amuses me. It begins...
Decent start in the end. Would have been better if the southampton player had stayed on for 5 more minutes. Not that happy/unhappy.
Transfer early and often, thats my motto
Normally I start a little slower with my transfers, but often end up using my first wildcard very early. Last season taught me that I need to save that wildcard for nearer Christmas, so that I dont end up using the 2nd wildcard too soon after Christmas, since its probably needed much later when cancellations and double-gameweeks come along. So we have the spectacle of me spending 16 points on transfers for gameweek 2
Was he tired, recovering from injury or did he get a fresh injury? I had a friend round and wasnt able to pay any attention to that game. He was in my squad some weeks ago but I got paranoid that he wouldnt play at all in gw1.
Well done for a great start! One of those somewhat annoying weeks where I was rather pleased with my total until I saw what sort of giddy totals quite a bunch of people had managed!
Not quite 100% match fit.
This year i've tried to plan ahead in 5 week chunks rather than just 2 games at most - that's why i'm not that bothered by the few non-performances this round.
You're certainly playing your own game!
Bold move with no Salah and Mané as captain. Working out so far.
Well, swapping Son for Gudmundsson worked out okay. Wish I hadn't swapped Bernardo Silva for bloody de Bruyne (who I made captain) though. Hey ho.
The defence and midfield of a guy in my work league. And this is after auto-subs; he originally had Trippier in his back line too...
Must admit i was slightly worried when salah scored. Could have gone very wrong.
It usually works out ok, good enough to finish in a respectable place in leagues, but not to challenge for the very top place in leagues.
Its not like I spend that many points every week, and I am hoping to be able to have many weeks where I dont spend points on transfers this season. But part of my strategy always involves trying to have a nice high team value which I can exploit in the 2nd half of the season, so I cannot afford to be transfer shy at this stage.
I get why you do what you do, and - surprisingly - it works. But you had a great week this week! 5 transfers seems nuts to me...especially when there's a week's worth of potential injury news to come
If there are several injuries to my squad in the coming week then thats when I start to consider blowing my wildcard instead
Yeah no Salah would be just too stressful for me. But I might try and get Mané too, esp if Eriksen doesn't start to pick up a few points soon.
According to who? As soon as he was reunited with Silva as manager I decided he was more than worthy of a punt.
I only had Salah but I've bloody loved Mané since his Southampton days so I dont mind admitting that its largely his fault I spent 16 points and now have them both He does tend to get injured a bit though.
People! According to people!
i can feel a relegation struggle coming on...
I see this is the top performing league in fpl.
Top performing league is worked out by averaging the scores of the top 5 people in that league. Means we've got no chance of winning this
PVA seems like a good fella, though. Had a look through his Twitter. Very active replying to people, and just seems full of positivity and doesn't take anything seriously
De Bruyne crocked apparently. Could be out for weeks.
City's Kevin De Bruyne suffers serious knee injury
The timescale on that is now public, he is out for 3 months!
