May i refer you to the last 2 Newcastle games at the etihad stadium (the bald fraud will put stones up front now or something won’t he)


#1867

We’re trying out 5 at the back, and given City’s attacking down the left, I am terrified of Mendy vs. Yedlin/Manquillo… we’ll get properly banged.


#1868

transferred bernie silva out as he’s done NOTHING since he replaced kdb. already annoyed at his inevitable hat trick later


#1869

Weird how one transfer can make such a difference. Got Richarlison in two weeks ago instead of Alonso as that guy has burned me so, so many times. Been fighting fires ever since and losing 15 points a week because of it. If I’d stuck with my original plan of Alonso instead, I’d be laughing now and with 2 banked transfers.


#1870

Nearly transferred Pedro in this week but decided against it.

Moving Salah and Abu out to the fantasy glue factory next week - topping up with bargain value like the Eternal Glenn Murray.


#1871

did you triple captain Salah then?


#1872

This is officially the fantasy year of the defender. Getting Alonso in before next week at whatever the cost.


#1873

(Queue chelsea shipping at least 1 each week and no further alonso goals/assists this side of christmas)


#1874

49pts added bonus which is decent enough, but I only have Mkhi left to play so I’m just going to do my best to ignore the football tomorrow and Monday.

Anyone here TC Aguero?


#1875

Nope… Wasn’t thinking.


#1876

Good to see my swap of Lacazette to Richarlison is paying off well…


#1877

Solid week. Back bothering the DiS top 5 for the first time this season.


#1878

shouldn’t give away info to people i’m competing against but hey ho

bench boost - use on a double gameweek but obviously make sure your bench isn’t useless
triple captain - use on a double gameweek but not at xmas, remember how many people did that with kane last xmas?
free hit - use in that gameweek where the fa cup means there’s only 3 or 4 games in the prem

saying that, my mate used his triple captain on salah in the not-many-games game week last year when he got 19 points before captain-ing… so maybe my advice is bollocks


#1879

Four games in and a lot of people laughed at my strike force of Ings and Mitrovic - a lot of current league 1st places says otherwise.


#1880

Needless to say, I had the last laugh


#1881

Thank fuck the international break is nearly over.

Gone Salah to Hazard. Feelin’ risky.


#1882

This is going to sound ridiculous, but have been torn between not making a transfer this week and Wildcarding.

I feel like I could have a tasty 11 this week, if everyone plays. Or I could be 5 people down.


#1883

Injuries? Or rotation risks?


#1884

Both. Shaw and Fraser are flagged. Mikihitarian seems to be being rotated. Peltier and Kamara not playing.

But if everyone bar the last two start, I have a good 11 and a decent first sub, then two transfers to have fun with next week. I feel like I ought to get Alonso in, but he’s burned me for the last two seasons and it feels like point chasing now.
