    I can't seem to catch a break on this at all....Mendy out for most of the season the latest setback. 

    I'm in the sorry position of needing an Arsenal revival to have any chance...Ozil.... what a waste of space!

    Signing two Stoke midfielders this week has to be a sign of desperation!

    Andy and Mark -

    Looks like you have both brought in Zabaleta ?

    Can either of you confirm he is currently in your GW squad ?

    There will be a red X beside the unsuccessful transaction.
    Only one will have him.

    Just worked it out.

    One of you brought him in and then got rid within hours thus making him available again.

    Personality clash ?

    Yea that's exactly what happened. I noticed Lindelof has a great chance of starting with Jones injury so taking a punt him instead.

    Thought I was being prudent swapping Trippier out for David Luiz. 2 assists already making a mockery of that.

    Good old Harry Kane doing the business for me at least.

    Thank you West Ham, looking like 21pts out of their defence

    Interesting indeed.

    It's a tactic I had planned to use but I can't bring myself to get rid of any of my premium defence.

    It's the 4th & 5th midfielders and 3rd striker that are giving me weekly annoyance.

    Bringing in blanket defensive coverage every week for a team with a good fixture, for a clean sheet, was a tactic I really considered.

    Are you getting the defenders you want every week ?

    How’s it working out for you ?

    Are you happy with it ?

    It’s a valuable 18-21 points every week when it works out.

    I know you can’t cover the top teams with this strategy but you must have a good 2-3 options every week ?

    Swansea looking a good example for this week.

    So theres a couple of players from premium teams I'd like this week but its probably going to be my tactic for the season. Have in for two swans this week.

    Last week was the first time its worked

    So I didn’t get Holding or Trippier but did get VVD and Christensen. Welbeck up top if he’s fit. Happy enough with that

    I picked up Trippier as my first pick, I was very surprised to see him still available this morning.

    I have an all Swansea attack this week and Mawson at the back so hoping they thrash Huddersfield. Mane injury is another kick in the teeth for my team, I cant catch a break in this league.


  • Registered Users Posts: 843 ✭✭✭ mectavba


    Very happy to pick up Lanzini this week....I might actually have a midfielder capable of getting more than 2 points in one week.

    I didn’t get VVD or Trippier.

    Stupid draft system.

    You need to start coming last like me and you get everyone you want, it's great craic ;-)

    Joking aside I am enjoying it even though my team is the fantasy equivalent of Crystal Palace.

    iirc you have Sánchez and Mane.

    Looked like 500 points pre season.

    Pure bad luck.

    Thats what you get for being a high flyer!

    Yea that's my team. I've had a lot of injuries and suspensions but I'm still in decent shape even with the Mane injury, just lacking a big name striker.

    I was about to say thats a decent team until I saw up top which is more horrific than my rubbish
    Am thinking of getting Austin in over Rooney


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,989 ✭✭✭✭ SteelyDanJalapeno


    Who's gonna be brave enough to get zlatan in soon?

    Quiet happy with my team for this weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,989 ✭✭✭✭ SteelyDanJalapeno


    I see a lot of us filling up on defenders, quite happy with mine too, targeting 60+, and that's with Calvin on his own up front


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,777 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Hard to know where to find the clean sheets this week


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,961 ✭✭✭ klopparama

    Swansea, Southampton, West Ham and Stoke.

    Can we rely on any of them really? I have Naughton and am dropping him I think

    If I had to pick one it would be Southampton.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,777 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    All gone, Cedric, VVD, Bertrand and Yoshida. West ham will be a scramble

    I forgot they were all gone.

    West Ham it is so.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,989 ✭✭✭✭ SteelyDanJalapeno


    I wish we could trade players

    Feels quite limited right now, swapping in and out whatever mid place team's defenders that have a home fixture this week is what it's coming down to.

    Agreed a trade system would be great
