Kolasinac and Ozil both not playing this week.
Fucking Mane isn't playing! WTAF.
And so it begins.
Felt like i was just guessing towards the end of picking after i decided to go with both Salah & Sterling.
He's been widely expected to miss the first game for ages, beacuse of how long he ended up on international duty. Klopp started teasing that he might play tonight, but I didnt take his word for it.
Newcomers that I wanted to include in my team but chickened out of/needed the feeble amounts of money elsewhere.
Trossard, Robinson, Guilbert.
And you all decided to tell me when exactly?
The site started working again quite quickly this year. Except the H2H league is currently a broken mess, at least for me, I only see myself listed and no other teams in the league and no list of fixtures.
Im off and running, Own goal by one of my defenders!
That smug feeling when you have VVD and Salah as Captain
Me too. Tempered by the fact I also had Origi until about 5pm. Esp as Origi is the major differential.
Can't complain though. Also had Robertson before I swapped for vvd. If and buts don't make points.
I liked the way they brought Mane on for the last ten mins to make sure I used up my captain on him and not on Sterling who runs out against a leaky West ham tomorrow.
Ok, seriously, what is it with the likes of Liverpool and City battering a team by scoring a hatful while still managing to concede at least one clean-sheet-ruining goal?
I swear to God, it's almost like they do it on purpose.
Well in todays case, Liverpools defence has looked quite dodgy all pre-season so tonight was not a shock. I wasnt going to have 2 Liverpool defenders as a result of pre-season, but I bottled that decision in the final hours before the deadline and will now pay the price. I did have Salah as captain though so I'm pretty happy so far.
My mid table bound mix of megastars, journeymen and benchwarmers. I am curious to see how many survive until the end of the season week 4 panic clearout.
Well Alisson got injured already so you better hope your Button is secure
He'll have to walk it off.
Perez doesnt seem to be as much of a differential when battling other U75 teams as he does more generally - lots and lots of us here seem to have him!
Jesus would be a starter in any side but Aguero too expensive to keep if Pep is going to pull this bullshit all season.
Too early to tell, since Agueros lack of pre-season always made him a big risk for week 1.
But yeah, beyond that there were already signs last season that rotation would end Agueros 'must have' fantasy status. Sterling has neatly taken that crown I believe, with a smooth transition at least!
I knew he'd had Copa America games but thought it's best to have him from the start anyway. Salah made me pay for that foolishness.
Pretty exciting start to the season so far. Early indications of a high points scoring week for many, which will make it especially bruising for those whose teams have feeble performances this week.
Marathon not a sprint. Marathon not a sprint. Marathon not a
Most people would be happy if one of their players scored a hattrick, but of course I'm focusing on his yellow card and the fact I didn't captain him.
It's possible I don't have the healthiest attitude to life...
Maybe Billy Sharp wasn't such a daft choice for third striker after all
How can neither Liverpool or Spurs keep a clean sheet at home to a newly promoted side??
I know, I probably should have seen this coming.
I was so unimpressed with most defensive displays in pre-season, and so in need of funds to use elsewhere, that I ended up with a Brighton goalkeeper and defender. I didnt expect them to keep a clean sheet, and I remembered what happened to people who put 2 Brighton defenders in their team for a double gameweek last year. I was just hoping Duffy would score or assist, and that Ryan would pick up some points for saves made.
I've become paranoid about Che Adams being a red card risk already. And there are clear defensive changes I want to make but not yet, but if prices look like they will rise I might be forced to do them a week earlier than I'd like, and start spending silly transfer points already. Those are the only two negatives for me so far, its been a start I can be most happy with. Oh I suppose one other negative is when I see my team listed in the context of next weeks fixtures, it doesnt look anything like as strong a team as it resembled this week. So I bet I spend 4 points on transfers even if I get away without messing with my defenders this coming week.
