Big moment. Big, big moment.
A whole month to choose between Cahill and Fellaini, Paintsil or Konchesky oh the agony...
That's two extra good players everyone can afford now.
Ronaldo cost something fucking ridiculous and rarely, if ever, got extra points. If there was ever an obvious guy to throw silly points at it was Gerrard.
Someone be a good chap and set up a DiS league.
he almost had twice th points as the second highest points scorer by the end of the season
but you're not choosing the stopper based on how good he is, but on how good the defence in front of him is. You're better off with someone like Sorensen.
Ferdinand is overpriced. Jo is a lazy sod who got lucky a few times last season. Jiminez and Collison are good picks though.
Maybe you're right. I haven't made my picks yet.
I thought in previous seasons that it sometimes spoilt my appreciation of the beautiful game to be thinking of my fantasy points all the time
but fuck it - it's fun
I probably wouldn't pay anywhere near as much attention to the premier league if I didn't have to think of my fantasy team.
Keep in mind that I didn't read anything on how points are scored at all, so this may well be an utter shit team.
I need to work Zhirkov into this side somehow
Hibbert (change if they sign Naughton)
Beattie (for now)
A O Brien
the only sub ill make is to change my three strikers out for my fifth midfielder, kranjcar. it's either a 3-4-3 or a 3-5-2.
I can delete it if there is one going
Now I can get excited and spend three days choosing my team, before ultimately forgetting about the whole thing after less than a month.
I love this time of year.
You knows it. In 2 months time I'll have forgotten that the words 'fantasy', 'football' and 'league' can even be used in conjunction with each other
was just about to ask if anything had been added to the game that would make me take an interest in it past the end of September, like some sort of weekly nude wimmin bonus.
I now send you an email at the end of every month with naked pictures of Burnley players on machinery. First up: Brian Jensen on a Honda 125cc, with his leathers pulled down to his knees. And a helmet joke JUST HERE.
September is Robbie Blake on a tractor.
then get bored after the first week.
i'll probably do the same this year
Yet I can get on facebook. What a shower of bastards.
my team is thusly. Due changes before start of season ofcourse:
DEF: G. Cahill
DEF: A. Hughes
DEF: C. Davies
DEF: J. Carragher
MF: A. Arshavin (c)
MF: D. Kuyt
MF: M. Taylor
MF. D. Murphy
ST: M. Owen
ST. W. Rooney
Al Habsi (gk)
*Repeat this 500 times before season starts.
Was better than the one I've created myself:
Ashton (usually starts well for me, and then breaks something)
Djourou (I'm hoping he gets a good run pre-season and can start again like last season but I suspect not)
Terrible choices all round no doubt, but at least I managed to work around not choosing Ricardo Fuller
Past examples: Evra / Bosingwa / Chimbonda / Lescott / Laursen
Who'll be this seasons prize catch do ya reckon?
I'm counting on Big Sam still using him like a barely formed asteroid in the opposition's six yarder
The only two games I pretty much dropped him for were the two he scored in, one as a makeshift striker.
Subs: Ebanks-Blake, Beattie, Hart
Owen or Agbonlahor?
I have a sneaky suspicion Villa will be turd this year. I'm filling my team with Chelsea, Liverpool, Man Utd and Spurs players.
Is Ebanks-Blake likely to do well u reckon?
