    This weeks top 4 bench teams

    NRVs'R'Us 11

    KOP ON 11

    Kitten's Krew 10

    Gone By November FC 9

    Thats the only table I'll be near the top of this season :(

    So you have 1.9 in the bank

    Rash to Inaceho get a mil extra 2.9

    Trippier to a 4 mil defender gets you to 4.9

    And selling Aruntivic for 7 brings you to 11.9

    Which gives you enough for Augero and .8 in the bank

    Or you can do a 4.5 defender and have . 4 in the bank

    And then you'd have to sub out Inneacho the week after I think that works

    If you dont want to spend on transfers

    Jesus Christ MJ, thanks very much. You are very into this, and it is contagious. I hope this helps my interest last beyond the first few months, for the first time in years :D

    Major improvement for me on GW1 where I left something like 21 points on the bench.

    GW1, I just entered FF and bought my squad, but forgot to return and set the team up properly before the weekend deadline. Hence all the points on the bench. By default, FF set my team to 4-4-2, leaving Kante on the bench in place of Schindler in defence (£4.5m Cardiff defender:pac:), it put Fanianski in goal over Alisson...just no.

    This week's 9 points on the bench though, they were from intentionally benched players. Stephen Duffy got most of those 9 points with his goal against United. I don't think he'll be picking up those points every week.



    Just for the craic...

    What was the inspiration for my team name?

    1) United's title challenge.
    2) Jose.
    3) My participation in fantasy football.
    4) All of the above.

    Its my first year playing since I've been in collage I'd say or been a while but I get into things and then not although I reckon I'll keep it up to some degree I'm still here after a bad week last week at least :D

    I reckon it's number 3 although it could easily be 4 :o


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 48,674 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    Refuse to take a 4 point hit.

    Tarkowski in - Lascelles out.

    Micki Ryan to the starting team, both Wolves lads on the bench.

    That's all I'm doing. Aubemayang has to score at some point.... right?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,311 ✭✭✭✭ MicksJaguar


    I took vardy straight out of my team after his red card but took a minus 4 to take out one of my non starters.

    Since then Ive had 2 more injuries and another red card (1g suspension)

    So had to take -12 more to get 11 on the pitch and now shaw looks like being injured.

    If I had waited and it was all like that now I'd have wild carded but kept making moves as thing came up so just had to keep digging.

    The way I looked at it was no move you get 0 in that position you take a -4, the player gets 4 points you break even and anything above is profit but even getting 2 or 3 and a sub you like in instead isn't bad.

    Seems better then only fielding 6 players but I should have just wildcarded sigh bad week

    You can wildcard now having made those moves and it will erase the -12

    Can I? must read up on this Im such a newb :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,944 ✭✭✭✭ Kolido


    Just used my wildcard. Needed wholesale changes after the disastrous start any didn't want to leave it another few weeks and risk falling too far behind.

    Doesn't mean I'll do any better this week but I'm happier with the team i have now.

    Any tips on who to cpt this week? I'm thinking Mane.

    They are terrible away from home, plus it's Liverpool, it's like comparing chalk and cheese :pac:

    Tinkering around now with the team now that I can wildcard and not cost myself transfer points (cheer pete)

    Bookies have Liverpool favorites at 1.22 to score 2 or more goals compared to Citys 1.33 and Arsenal 1.33 (mainly)

    Me I'm most likely going with Aubewinge as I think he is the best finisher in the league and he is also on penos (i think)

    I'd say this thread will definitely help keep my interest going longer than usual. Hopefully we'll all keep each other interested in it.

    As for my team name, I would like to say it's only '3' but at the time of naming I was feeling very pessimistic and it was quite possibly all 4 :/ Sure we'll see after this weekend, If United drop more points against Spurs, that's a title challenge gone IMHO. City are going to be relentless again this season, dropped points will be rare for them :(

    Ah yes, I'm familiar with this effect, it's also known as The Rashford Dilemma or Alexis' Basilisk.

    Feeling a happy Salahday against Brighton? :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,311 ✭✭✭✭ MicksJaguar


    I still havent clicked the WC button yet but I think I'm set although I have gone back and forth over a few players and weather to play 343 or 352 currently on 352.

    Aubam will be my captain come the weekend any which way.

    Both are likely to score. I dont think its likely Aguero will get another hat trick.

    But Salah will benefit if Pool get a clean sheet......

    Who knows what could happen really but i think Salah is a slightly better bet.

    Ya Liverpool could keep a lot of clean sheets this season, good shout on that actually on the extra point, plus Salah gets lots of assists even when he aint scoring
