    The good thing about having Torres is that nearly all your rivals will have him too because of the DGW, so if he does bad for you, he's doing bad for a lot of other people.

    Unless he puts in a performance in his next two games, he'll be out of my team in GW3 for Rooney or RVP. He's just too inconsistent to build a team around.

    Alrighty, after a reasonably good start to the season (62pts), hoping to improve this week.

    Have made one transfer, getting rid of Sinclair and jumping on the Michu bandwagon (which I did before the price rise :)).

    Also changed Captain, promoting McLean who did well last week, and has a home game against Reading.

    Gameweek 2 Team
    Cech
    Evra
    Terry
    Kompany
    Michu(V)---Walters---Young---McLean(c)
    Ba
    Graham
    Torres

    I thought I did enough this week to steal first place. It's on like donkey kong Mr. Beegan :pac:


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 14,009 wnolan1992


    I need Kagawa and Tevez to score big this week to offset the 8pt penalty I'll be taking at KO. :pac:

    Ha! Probably safest, because if I chose either of Tevez and Kagawa, I would definitely choose the wrong one! It's just how it works :P


    Also, Michu better do amazingly well this weekend because that's a bandwagon I went to loads of effort to jump on!

    You might steal it yet this week. I had only 9 players playing last week and will have to make a chunk of subs before the GW kicks off this week as I have 5 players not playing(Reading and Chelsea). Minimum of 8 point hit I'd imagine (keeping Torres and Hazard benched to avoid price rises and selling the other 3).

    Turns out I'll be taking a 12 point hit this week. Will probably be dropping out to 4th or so because of this.

    Jesus, for a 12pt hit would you not have been as well off playing the WC?

    (although I'm one to talk, I took an 8pt hit and am seriously considering bringing in Berbatov now that he's on his way to Fulham...)

    Well, they were players I going to be getting rid of anyway; Harte, Pogrebnyak, Scott Sinclair; and said that I might as well get rid of them earlier rather than later. Was looking at Berbs myself, but will wait and see about match fitness this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,017 ✭✭✭ ironictoaster


    I can't see the majority of deadline signings to play too much this weekend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,314 ✭✭✭ Jackobyte


    Even after my transfers, I've still ended up with at least 4 not playing. What is the West Bromwich manager playing at not playing Lukaku at all. Also, Clichy not playing and a chance that Nani may be left out with Valencia being favored.


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 14,009 wnolan1992


    37 points, with Kagawa(c), Evra and Demba Ba still to play. Though it's really only 29pts once the transfer penalty is added.

    Need Kagawa to get 12+ points tomorrow to make me not feel depressed for having changed him to captain over Tevez at the last minute...

    Disaster with baines as captain :(

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,017 ✭✭✭ ironictoaster


    Baines as captain plain suicide!

    Tbh, I don't why people do not have a consistant goalscorer as captain, you'll get no where without one! Hazard, Tevez and RVP (especially after Rooney is out)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 636 anirishlad


    Suarez just fired me to the top :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,394 JamJamJamJam


    I've been slacking on my managerial duties, and didn't change my captain or make any transfers or pay any attention at all to my team over the past few weeks... So I've earned myself a steady midtable place..!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,625 flyswatter


    I don't think I've ever had a worse start to this thing, bet I'll lose all interest in a month or two!


  • Registered Users Posts: 373 ✭✭ HandsomeDivil


    Usually I last until Christmas or so before I lose interest but this year I haven't changed my team since the first week. Hmmph


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 14,009 wnolan1992


    Not gonna lie, I lost interest after GW2. :pac:

    Still managed to score 59 points this week though, and I'm 5th! :cool:

    Gonna try and get back into it now, but I'm definitely not going to be as obsessively serious about it as I was in the first two weeks. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,314 ✭✭✭ Jackobyte


    My team has become an absolute disaster. Last week I had an extra 22 points on the bench and this week 2 of my 3 outward bound subs scored. Also, captaining Pienaar was a big mistake.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 636 anirishlad


    Yeaaa top of the league if anybody cares anymore :P


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 14,009 wnolan1992


    I'm holding steady in 6th, which is excellent considering Kagawa and Terry have been in my team since September. :pac:

    My team is so out of date... Every week I put off changing it on about the Tuesday, and then forget until the games are already on! :(
