awful weekend, Lescott on minus points, only 1 defender with a clean sheet and not one of my players scored.
...Lescott and Howard on - points. Carrick and Ferdinand not playing...
I'd fucking know if the site FUCKING EVER WORKED.

having gerrard as captain today saved my team somewhat.
FUCK YOU EVERTON.
only two points worse than me.
Usually i take about a month to get bored of fantasy football, but it's a pretty immediate reaction this season.
...Howard's been my keeper for the last 3 years. Not been so good this week.
had the wrong arsenal player as captain...plus, Elmo will be out of teh squad very shortly.
I had a bit of a disaster this week, few changes made already.
How do the subs work? I have Onouha in my team, but he didn't play for Man City. Does my substitute defender come in, or does that only happen if Man City don't play in a Gameweek?
...who do play, though I guess the maximum is 3 subs per week. But obviously it's dependent on formation and such.
My team really is that shit.
Anyone got a code?
Nobody has anything to fear. I would probably come in at the bottom of the league due to a god awful first week and a shit load of transfers.
i did very well in the know the score though
you predicted all those away wins?
its all downhill from here though... :(
time to WILDCARD it into week 2
I'm keeping the faith though. No changes as yet.
in the first 3 games
better to wait until gameweek 10 or so when players have settled into a bit of form
Lampard and Torres were fucking anonymous this weekend, but I'll go out and buy a particularly revolting looking hat solely to eat it if they haven't got 20 goals between them come December.
first time playing and going quite well but made the rookie error of only having around 2 players active in this midweek slot, so i've completely revamped the team.
awaiting the pangs of regret a month or two down the line...
Also, are you allowed to make one 'free' transfer per game week?
you can use the wildcard once per season to transfer as many players as you like in one gameweek
i've already used mine :(
last year I made a parictularly nasty wildcard early on including Steve Sidwell. Not my finest hour.
Not too shabby. If I'd picked a better captain it could have been even higher. Next gameweek will be more difficult since only 4 of my first team will be playing, hmmm. Might need a bit of a formation change to maximise the points there.
start as you mean to go on
Pish, lets hope it gets better from here on in.
Lampard, Dempsey, Cahill and A Young yielding only 11 points between them = much head scratching.
My chairman won't release anymore funds for transfers until at least mid-September...
but by then it was too late. sorted stuff out a bit now though
Thank you Mr Fabregas!
because apparently there are only 6 games in this gameweek
gameweek two includes next saturdays games too.
48 points, 1 above average. I'd be far higher if I'd swapped Cech and A.Cole for my benchers Sorenson and Shawcross.
Watch me slide people, watch me slide
Especially seeing as Carrick didn't play and Lampard, Beattie and SEB might as well not have done.
Alas, I only have a bare 11 players for next weeks games, and most of them are away to teams that'll finish in the top 5.
I'm guess all the top people had Fabregas and/or Drogba and/or Noble, they all got loads of points.
What's happening this week then? Do the midweek fixtures count towards next weekends gameweek points or what? I might need to make a sneeky substitution/captain change if that's the case.
But no-ones 100%
I think this is a mini-Gameweek up until Saturday lunchtime, with another separate one after that.
Meaning if you're laden with Arsenal, Fulham and West Ham players you're a bit screwed. Like me.
I'm convinced he'll start away at Hull, we won't be able to resist lumping it to a target man who is shit at being a target man.
I didn't take it overly personally, given that we've never met or anything and I'm a bit past all that. And if you hadn't have let rip, it would have been a bit disappointing really; I tend to think of you as a slightly fiery opinion giver.
I did that trick too, looked at the whole first month. After this week, Birmingham and Burnley have a chance of getting the odd point or two, but I'm torn whether to put those players in against strong sides in case they 'do an Everton'. Hopefully not. I guess you never know, they might get a fluky headed goal or scrape a CS.
I seem to have 3 Stoke players though away to Liverpool. I fear a backlash...
if you make no transfers one week you get an extra free transfer the following week, but you cannot stack any more than that.
seems a bit strange.
I've only got Arshavin, Hughes and Murphy who aren't playing, a couple of subs and a transfer are in order. This however leaves me with a dilemma... do I?
1) Transfer Arshavin for another expensive midfield player hoping they'll bring me some big points/substitute the two Fulham players.
2) Bench Arshavin to save him for the weekend and transfer one of the Fulham players for someone cheaper who'll play in widweek (they would have to be relatively cheap). This will mean I won't have to transfer Arshavin back in again and can use my gamweek 3 transfer for something else.
Also I'm considering subbing out Sorensen for Hart as Birmingham have Pompey at home.
Fantasy football is going to melt my brain this year, doing it properly is such hard work.
I forgot to join this. Add 70 points to my total at the end of the season, RIGHT? :(
I forgot that transfers cost points and did about 12
Sunderland V Chelsea
Wigan V Wolves
Birmingham V Portsmouth
Burnley V Man Utd
Hull City V Tottenham
Liverpool V Stoke City
Sensible thing would be to have Liverpool, Spurs, United and Chelsea players I guess?
Annoyingly, Ebanks-Blake being out has meant I'm down to 10 eligible players. Not sure whether to get rid of Arshavin to squeeze in Gerrard or spend elsewhere...
Also, my defense is entirely made up of Stoke & Burnley players. Oh good...
For making 3 transfers to have a fully fledged team and see them score about 4 points between them, negating the 12 it cost me.
I might just make my one change and pray for some low scoring games.
having to go with a 5-2-3 formation though.
Don't know who to have as captain, I'm probably going to leave it as lampard.
I still want to find out where the Hell Carrick has gone?
I imagine Valencia and Nani are safe.
I'm pissed that I put a Birmingham defender in with a view to these games, only to find he's now reserve choice and not a starter. I mean FFS, Stephen CARR is in the starting eleven...
I try to never use any, but there are some harsh fixtures coming up and several of my team are crocked.
So I might need to use 8 points to sort it out. Or are we approaching Wildcard using territory?
Bloody FPL. It'll be the death of me...
And finished 2nd in the Dis league. I'm pretty sure I didn't garner an extra 100 points as a result of the transfers though. Definitely a net loss, so don't get into the habit of it...
Yeah I'd rather not spend them. But if it's for a player that has good match ups for the next 3 or 4 weeks, then maybe it's not so bad?
In my head anyhow.
Just don't start doing it every week. It's so easy to go all Claudio Ranieri
it costs 4 points for a transfer. If you think the player coming in will score you at least 4 more points than the one going out then it's worthwhile.
I've only spent points so far on quickly ditching everton players.
And potentially get a few in. I think with Lescott gone and their upcoming games, they'll turn a corner now.
my team is now worth a whopping £100.2m
the winner out of nearly 2 million players gets 2 tickets to a premiership game (not of their choice).
no runners up prizes.
DON'T GO MAD!
But have a rock solid team now so i'm sure it will pay off. I try not to spend more than 4 a week.
I seem to be getting dicked
We'll definitely see lots of prices go up and down with fantasy managers being unable to tinker during the week off.
that's alright isnt it?
First Johnson and now Modric. I think it's pretty unfair the latter's been at the heart of everything good about Spurs so far and he still picked up fucking nothing. Meanwhile our Wayne apparently gets 3 bonus points for just turning up.
I've got to start having more faith in Stoke. This is the second time I could've picked up loads more points by playing Sorensen over Reina.
is Diaby likely to get played much this season? He looks a suspiciously good bargain
he's one of those that as soon as you pick, he'll be dropped.
Like me, looking at ballack in place of modric, I can guarantee he'll be benched as soon as I do that.
Lennon, Denilson and Barry all have tough games next week.
they hardly ever take a battering there, and even if they don't keep a clean sheet he's good for making a load of saves.
so it's a bit deceiving.
I second your moan about bonus points. It used to be that various players could get you 2 or 3 bonus points in this game even if they didn't score / get assists, yet this season so far is very lazy with the distribution of them.
Arshavin got me 2 for example, despite being distinctly average against United. Modric has got me none all season despite being Spurs best player in this period.
They also seem to award them before the game has even finished? I hope it improves or else it'll just end up with the same 3 players of each side getting them all...
