Gah. I'm sure I've seen some happen during the day though?
No, not unless its changed this season, and I dont think it has (price change prediction sites would have something to say about it if it had). There may have been at least one set of changes that didnt show up on the site until hours later than normal (5am instead of 1.30-2.30am), but I think that was just a teething problem with the site early in the new season.

110 players fell in value this week! 18 went up.

My overall rank is the best its ever been, finally beating the overall rank I had at the end of the very first week I ever played this game (week 1 2015/16 which was mostly down to others doing shit and me having Yaya Toure and Kompany).

Times have certainly changed a bit since then. It seems I was well up for captaining Mane even though he was a Southampton player back then :D

So yeah, now my rank is 63,143. I am making the most of it since at this stage of the season it will be easy to fall off a cliff in a single week. Its helping my new 'transfer restraint' policy - only spent 4 points this week instead of my traditional 8 :D

So, Kane as captain this week. I'm always nervous pulling this move, and if he fails me as captain again for a game that looked great on paper, maybe it will be the last time I ever trust him with this.

Not just a little bit of a slag, but a total slag.
Haller showed off some interesting moves yesterday. Maybe I will get him.
I'm going to put my considerable reputation on the line and say that he will get a decent amount this year.

We are going to attack every game. If him and Anderson stay fit then they are going to score goals.

I mean we are also gong to concede bucket loads but entertainment is pretty much all you can wish for when you're a mid table side. You're never going to actually win anything.

Well, that's the hattrick of picking the wrong captain out of Sterling and Salah :rolleyes: :facepalm:

Also, in six games, City and Liverpool have managed to keep one clean sheet :mad:

Its the curse of so many people spending big on defence this season, with hilariously bad points hauls from that part of the pitch so far (with a few defenders attacking points exceptions).

Spurs seem especially awful to watch on telly so far this season. Another reason for me to ditch Kane and wait till that team start looking like a great source of points. Could be a long wait, especially if Eriksen goes, but then again there is still every chance they will punish me by getting loads of points next week.

Won't be touching Kane this season.

Snap. You know it has to be one of them, but which one?

Normally I'd be looking at swapping out my Burnley striker as he faces Liverpool next week, but fuck it, anything goes at this point.

Watch them now keep their first clean sheet of the season... :rolleyes:

If it's Barnes keep him he looks on fire wish I'd got him in already. Definitely will before their easy run of fixtures.

I think high price defenders tend to do better as th season goes on. Maybe as good teams work out the opposition forwards. So should probably start off with less money in defence and build up.

Would be interested to see any statistical proof of this theory.

Yeah I think that would definitely make sense based on number of clean sheets so far - having said that I don't think there's many expensive strikers that I want to take a punt on at start of the season either. Maybe it's best to whack it all in midfield and build up defence and attack as it begins to become clearer who is performing!
