    starfish No dialogue. Just plot.

    First transfer of the season kinda foisted upon me. DB out Alli in.

    Even if he ends up playing and scores a hat trick, just the threat of this kind of thing happening kinda spoils my fun. When combined with how reliant my team after 5 transfers has become on too few real life teams/games, I have now made some additional changes and played my windcard. So much for saving it for later this year lol.

    If you read other team news or the Man city forums you'd have him as captain tomoroow. I wouldn't be selling a player on the strength of a journalist in one paper.

    Seems daft not to keep Salah as captain but Liverpool are playing a bogey team in Palace (away) whose defence is very good. Some attractive picks elsewhere for the role - Richarlison (Southampton at home) or Arnautovic (Bournemouth, home) but last season I uncaptained Salah the day he scored four goals. :facepalm:

    I've captained Arnie.

    We'll get beat 2 nil and Salah will get a hattrick.

    I've not left Arnie on the bench this week. And Mendy. Bloody Mendy.

    Indeed. I have other reasons too though, such as getting bored if I have too many players that too many other people have, and being greedy with how much money I want to put into my midfield.

    I think there is a great chance my plan will backfire in a big way but thats part of the fun for me :D

    I get that, i've always tried to not follow the crowd if you like, some are essential to have mind, i always enjoy trying to find those budget gem players that have gone unnoticed.

    I just had a look at the top 5 people in that league and they all played their bench boost last week! So lets not write off our chances of glory just yet :D

    Seem that enough people either dont have Aguero or havent made him captain that I dont quite have to spend the weekend in abject fear.

    Would probably still have captained Salah or Mane despite the whole 'Crystal Palace bogey team for them' if it were not for my somewhat low regard for Monday night football and the results it often has on fantasy. So I have taken a risk with Alli, in part so that I know whether I messed up today and dont have to wait for Sunday or Monday :D

    On a similar theme, I might place emphasis on trying to make the Saturday 3pm games exciting for my fantasy team all season, though there are obviously some limits as to how far I will go to achieve this. It was last week that made me feel this way, I dont want too many weeks where the 3PM slot is that irrelevant to my team.

    I might also make a little time this season to take the piss out of the FPL's Scout section & tips. I dont want to go on about it too much so I shall just unfairly point out the howlers and leave out all the stuff they get right.

    This weeks most obvious fail is Lee Peltier. They used his bargain price & Cardiffs home defensive record to go on about him and pick him for this week, and now he isnt even playing lol. More fool me for listening to them on this one!

    There's plenty of reasons to take the piss! The scout reminds me of a stat crunching gambling addict i know, all hypothetical, very impulsive and very little foundation.

    Well they were right about Jesus starting, but its Sterling who is on the bench (and Sane, Mahrez, Walker), Aguero starts. Both Silvas start.

    Hmm, perhaps I need to find a way to get Aguero back into my team lol.

    At least I've got Mendy, he is great.

    At least I havent got any Man U defensive players either haha. And I will never blame journalists for my own silly fantasy errors. I found a way to get Aguero back, just the 8 points on transfers this coming week for me then :D

    As soon as the deadline passed I was regretting leaving the capt on Aguero. Suddenly there was lots of 'no smoke without fire' pre-hindsight stuff.

    And then he plays and scores a hattrick. That'll do, Kun, that'll do.

    The Journo that tweeted about Aguero claims to be in the know regarding city! The city forums were spot on with their view of him.
