I kept mine later than most, only used it a few weeks ago. Was impossible to see this coming tbh, I thought the only issue I'd have this week would be captain choice (which I also got disastrously wrong), or whether to pick Bale over VDV (also wrong), or even whether or not to bring in Everton players (yep, wrong again).
Seeing three of my first choice DGW'ers going down injured last minute was nothing other than bad timing. I couldn't have even changed Simpson out, he conceded 4 against Wigan and then didn't start against Chelsea. No one saw that coming, I was expecting a minimum of 8 points from him tbh.
In previous years I've actually always used my wildcard early, in the first month.
