I'll probably get on Pukki when the good run of fixtures comes.
Yeah, he obviously knows where the goal is.
I too have had a rethink and panic-played my Wildcard. Connived to get Sterling and Salah in, because their prices and potential goals are commensurate with top strikers, so I feel ok with relatively budget strikers who should score what a similarly priced midfielder would get. Got Adrian in goal and a million in the bank for when Alisson is back.
Adrian might not play tomorrow.
maitland-niles in for walkers-peters.
Or i have a mad one 8pts -that'll leave me with salah, KDB, sterling and kane. I know it's a week too early but...
There's a couple of players I'd pick over KDB tbh, good as he is.
He's doing ok today.
Almost swapped him for Kean this morning.
Done it now.
Pukki is gonna be bought by everyone now. Knew I should have trusted my gut on him.

Bought him pre season and then swapped him for Che Adams unfortunately.
Yeah, I was hoping he'd have a quieter start then I'd pick him up later; now his price is gonna rise and he won't be the differential he should be
Big parts of the reason why I got Pukki in for this week rather than waiting were that he looked like he might go up in price on Friday night, and he did, and they were against Newcastle. And I was already unhappy with Che Adams who I had in that slot. Since I had already done some transfers and regretted spending 8 points on them, he helped push me towards using my wildcard.
I may as well push my gamble against the 'expensive defenders' strategy which many have gone for to even more extreme levels now. I can probably figure out a way to have Salah, Sterling, Aubameyang and Kane at the same time, and swap Salah for Mane or some other tweaks on a subsequent week when I need to free up a million to make less of my defenders £4m-tastic.
I hate myself.
Rage transferred him this evening. He will probably now get injured and be ruled out for six months.
A phrase I may use again given my £4m Sheffield United defender kept a clean sheet and scored a goal. And their goalie was wearing a hat.
I just need Perez to do something now to put the icing on the cake of my great start to the season.
Oh, you were mauled in the H2H this week as a result of Sheffield United too.
Lundstram is a super find. Got 18 points off my two Sheffield Utd players this week
Why is Lundstram classified as a defender. He's a midfielder.
You can add another 5 points to that.
So many times I get stuck between "don't transfer early in the week in case something happens" and "but the prices will change!".
Can't make the transfers I want this week because, due to price rises and falls, I'm £0.1m short
I've wildcarded. Fuck it.
Probably cos he didn't play much last season and they just didn't know or think it was important. My understanding is he's playing this year because Wilder wanted a defensive midfielder to provide more cover. Seems to be a bit of a playmaker as well though. Good for him bet he didn't think he was gonna play regularly in the Premier league!
So has anyone not got pukki yet?
Me. Couldn't afford him and KDB, so went with Barnes instead. Like SpackleFrog, might get him in a few weeks time after a run of a few fiddly fixtures, and hope his price either stays where it is or even comes down in the meantime.
This year's Jimenez.
I haven't and prob won't. He annoyed me too much last year. Lots and lots of lucky late goals against panicking tired teams.
Thats set my inner nerd off, not that it takes much.
So here is a summary of what minutes he scored in last season, with a - when he didnt score in that game.
Oh I got him in. Sorry. I got him in the day he scored the hat trick, he's gone up by 0.2 million more since and I'm already considering selling him for a profit.
Will Martial go up any more today by the way? I've wildcarded and brought him in but might boot him out again and take the money I'm not convinced by the Man Utd hype.
Nobody can go up again in price before this weeks deadline, since price changes happen during the night and the deadline is at 7pm tonight.
Martial only went up in price once so far this week (previously went up once before this week too) so you cant make any money from him if you got him this week - you only get half of any price rise when you sell.
I do feel sorry for people that got Ndombele, since he has a minor injury that means he wont be playing against Newcastle.
Gah. I'm sure I've seen some happen during the day though?
Maybe I'll keep him for a week but that means no strikers!
