    Four weeks and counting.

    Of course, this week de Bruyne outscored them both (as did TAA, as it goes).

    Same! Thought I'd buck the trend by picking Sterling twice in a row. Didn't work.

    Done that thing you should never do and gone for the early transfer on the International break, but my team is OK and Aaron Wan Bissaka's value is falling cos of his injury.

    I got Soyuncu in, for entirely sensible reasons and not cos of this chant.

    Well here we go, one of those days where expectations will be high for Norwich v Man City, but what will actually happen?

    I'm paranoid about Man City rotation too, but gotta try anyway. Not that I could afford Aguero.

    Wish I had a playing striker other than Pukki!

    Hmmm. Mane or Sterling as captain? Clearly Sterling.

    Pukki won't get anything against City. Should probably play Ceballos.

    De Gea is too expensive. I'll swap him for Patricio.

    All decisions I made this week. :rolleyes:

    I'm bottom of a league I play with some mates. My 9 yr old son is top. FFS.

    Nearly took a hit to get Abrahams in. Decided not to.

    Worst GW so far.

    I was quite entertained by the weekends football, despite doing horribly. Unfortunately that was a bad backdrop to suffer a Monday night 0-0 when what I needed was excitement with an end product, not dramatic pinball.

    Whats the point in me congratulating myself for relative transfer restraint when the points I saved by not doing my usual quantity of transfers are dwarfed by the points I've not won in recent gameweeks anyway? Oh well, maybe normally I would take this attitude and run with it, back into the realm of spending lots of points on transfers. But the next fixtures for various teams and the fact I'll just end up with less differentials means I am still only likely to spend 0 or 4 points this week. But if my team take a trip to dudsville again I can well imagine 8 or 12 points being spent without much further hesitation!

    Transfer restraint hasnt helped my H2H game this season either, I swear I'm doing worse at that than I do when I spend 8 points quite often!

    Think everyone did pretty badly. My run of picking the wrong captain from Salah and Sterling continues.

    Plenty did badly but plenty also got in the 60-70 points range. But yeah, I havent picked a captain that did anything since week 1, and this has contributed plenty to the erosion of the advantage I had in the first few weeks.

    Yuuuuuuup. I thought I'd actually switched and got it right with Salah, but turns out no, I stuck with Sterling :rolleyes: :facepalm:

    Think I'm just gonna go with Sterling again on the basis that eventually it has to work out. :rolleyes:

    I'm comforting myself with the fact that people who did well in such a weird game week will drop off over time :hmm:

    I was going to go with the 'third time lucky' Sterling as captain approach. But I am still allowed to revert to my crazy transfer spending on occasions this season, just nowhere near as often as I used to. And so it has happened, I have flipped and spent 12 points and now I cannot captain Sterling because he isnt even in my team!

    I think he has great recent form against Watford too, so I have probably created a fresh disaster for myself that will take many weeks to recover from. Never mind, I am used to struggling and going backwards at this stage of the season.

    I've triple captained him.

    Boom.
     
  21. He won't play this weekend.

    Well, wheres the fun in playing if we cant make reckless moves in pursuit of a new dream team to save us?

    I don't need saving that much. I'm top of the h2h and 5th in man league. So it's just reckless behaviour!

    Well you lasted nearly a month after saying that before Pukki appeared in your team!

    Sterling on the bench!

    Yup, just saw that.

    He is, of course, my captain this week :facepalm:

    Sterling on the bench then. Pep does love to mess with our fantasy teams.

    You and over 1.4 million other players!

    I only sold Sterling because I wanted Aguero - was going to wait one more week but after watching the champions league game I wanted the rested option, not the one that played the full game again. And I wanted Son, who at least managed an assist today.

    I have 7 players in the 3pm games so I dont have long to wait to see if they can help negate the 12 points I spent on transfers.

    Triple captain.

    :D

    Fucks sake.

    I imagine they will bring him on for the last ten minutes so I don't get to have Mane as my triple captain.

    3 points incoming.
