    Eh? You mean because you can't decide or because of some mechanism?

    I can't see Zaha being right for a bit. Me guy have to swap him out at the start.

    Why is it that you can spend ages picking your team pre season, but it's only once he deadline passes that you can spot the dead wood?

    I'm looking at my players now, thinking 'good, not bad, could be ok'. At 19.01 I'll be thinking 'What's that useless get doing in my team?'

    I've gone for one cheap option in each part of the team to free up funds for decent people. Before I've gone for average everywhere with like one salah or Aguero or whoever.

    Less flexibility but let's see how it goes.

    I caved. I don't believe Zaha is going to be ready to play this weekend, so I've got Perez in, meaning I could afford Firmino. 3 Liverpool and 3 Citeh in my starting eleven can't really be argued with.

    Have you got a cunning plan that will work within 7 hours?

    Zaha was omitted from training yesterday cos his "head wasn't right"

    I was happy to stick a couple of new prospects in my team, but now I am sad that I dont seem to be able to wangle it so that they both play this week, one of them will just have to make do with my bench.

    I havent gone for premium new prospects either, those will just have to wait till they have at least actually started a game.

    I'm not looking forward to one of the consequences of changing my team 8 million times during pre-season - there is now a long list of names in my head that I went for and then got rid of, and if any of them perform this weekend I will groan!

    Last-minute panic changes lol

    Realised I could wangle Salah in there. Whether worth it or not I'd rather cheer goals for him than for Sterling, though I've maintained my three each from Liverpool and Man City (two defenders from each). Plenty of penalty takers in my starting eleven - four - and all three mids are either actually strikers or wingers.

    Have to walk away from it now.

    I could do a straight swap of Fraser for de Bruyne (I have the spare £2m in the bank), but weirdly the Bournemouth man feels a safer bet at this point the City guy, and also having £2M to play with next week when we've seen some actual PL action would be handy.

    I'd forgotten how much I hate this.

    I did have a spare £2m at some stage earlier this week, which I thought might come in useful to upgrade to Pepe at some point, but this was too good to be true and now I have 0 spare money and will have to shuffle more than one player around in order to make such a change in future. Oh well!

    Swapped Ayew and Richarlison for Kean and Grealish.

    That's the kind of tinkering level I am at.

    I am simultaneously satisfied with and in complete dismay of my team.

    There are so many players where I think "ohhhh, I know that bastard is going to get points" but I can't fit them all in :(

    There does seem to be lots of potential this season, but with every passing hour I chicken out of even more untested players, so most of them will just have to prove themselves in the prem first. If other fantasy game players behave the same as previous seasons, this will still give me time to jump on certain players wel before many others who are much slower to act.

    I had Mahrez in by week 3 of the season where they won the league. Knowing me I probably benched him at the wrong times and sold him and bought him back several times later in the season, but acting early on him then still helped.

    Ha, decided to play the draft game on the fantasy site as well, so now I have a couple of additional teams with lots of the players I had to leave out of my main fantasy squad. That should cushion the blows a little, although I dont really care very much how well my draft teams do compared to my main fantasy team.

    Well unless there is still a cunning plan that happens in the next 85 minutes, the H2H league is going to end up with 18 players in it.

    I really wish Milner was still classed as a defender :( There's no-one, currently, I'd swap him for in midfield, but would snap him up as a defender in a second.

    Aye, someone on Reddit pointed that out too.

    At this stage I'm basically resigned to my team, but still hoping for a flash of inspiration.

    and there's my excuse for why I still have Sharp and Gundogan in my squad

    Normally I'm quite attentive to set-piece takers, but got bugger all in the squad thus far :facepalm: :(

    Salah v Norwich... it is tempting to Triple Captain him, if it were a week or two later, for sure.

    I was already subjected to one of my pet hates during the community shield commentary - 'ooh look how many chances Salah is missing, he would normally put those away'. No, and the fact I hear this nearly every week is kinda proof that actually he always misses plenty of chances, but he creates so many overall that it often doesnt matter.

    Having said that, I believe he did miss even more opportunities last season than the one before, so I am hoping this trend doesnt continue further in that direction, or at some stage this season I might have to ditch him.

    Maybe you and I will get to play eachother an additional time, its in the lap of the gods now!

    Anyway much as it would have been nice to get 20, I think undershooting is still preferable to overshooting. And at least its an even number. Thanks for organising it and getting as many as we did!

    Ach, it's only 2 off full, and at least it's an even number.
