    Just having a look at my scores in the EPL and noticed in my H2H game my opponent has made 23 transfers for minus 88 pts after compiling 27 points this round. Think he might lose next week as well. Wonder if he will go again. grin

    In from 5 mill into the top 3MILLION!!! hahaha

    53 last week and 50 this week , havent made any trades yet and say’s i have 2 available now .

    So if i use 1 would that mean i get 2 next week or no?

    scoring consistent but a gun is needed by the looks of it , the problem is where to find 12 pts from , how are everyone else travelling ?

    It isnt a bad fantasy game so far , consistent pts make it more enjoyable too

    If you have 2 trades and use 1 this week you will have 2 next week. The most you can have at a time is 2 so always make sure you use that second trade.

    Definitely need consistent guns. The likes of Salah and Sterling for me have been must haves and set and forgets from the start, alternating them with the C depending on matchups.

    Yeah the rules around assists are pretty consistent.

    Also with the draw , are thre any mid week games coming up yet?

    Midweek games are rescheduled games based on cup competitions such as FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Champions League and Europa league. The Carabao will be the first to interfere roughly somewhere between 15-28. Really depends on the draws. Then after new years is when the other 3 start to impact proceedings. Nothing to worry about for atleast another 3 months though.

    The next planned midweek games that I can see is the first Tuesday of December. I think Liverpool will have some games to make up midweek due to the World Club Challenge.

    Wow, that was some big hits! At the end my score went 59, then 61, then 63, then 57, then 61. It has stayed there ever since. Last week my 82 score matched my league score.

    Bench King (H – MCI) for Montoya (H – SOU) right? Team is as below:

    Pope Button
    Robbo VVD Maguire Montoya
    Salah KDB Lanzini Trossard
    Kane Haller
    Res: King, Dendoncker, Rico

    Yeah transfers made. The no reverse thing kills me in FPL because I often rush it with the pressure of price changes.

    Went Fraser to Lanzini, Diop to Maguire. Probably should have found a way to get Martial in for Fraser instead.

    I’m thinking B Silva down to Martial since De Bruyne seems to be back to his best after last year’s injury plagued season.

    scores so far 53 , 50 and this week 52 . consistent again but no gun to captain still. haven’t used any trades as I forgot to on Saturday.

    Is B Silva coming off the bench ? seems like very low scoring from him , might trade him out.

    how are everyone else travelling?

    A 61 takes me up to 37th in the SC FPL league. 183 in total has me inside the half million overall!

    I’m sure he started. I just got rid of B Silva, far too many awesome players in that Man City midfield. Sterling is enough for me. D Silva was the man last night.

    Travelling backwards for me, started with a 83 and back to the 40’s low 50;s since. Sitting just under 800K mark OR. Found out you don’t play around with Wildcard, once activated you use it or lose it. Keeping Salah , Sterling and De Bruyne all year unless injured are my only set players.

    G’day all. Rumour has it that Sanchez will go out on loan. Does that mean any injury Martial has is not that serious?

    Going great OTB. Scores aren’t final until you see the confirmed in green on your team page. Bonus points have to be added. Not sure on freeman, Fox sports will have a list of players on the fixtures and results page. Got 37 points as I took a hit -4 but still have one player to go. below par this week. EPL got next week off for International break so will re asses.

    You haven’t used a trade yet? That means you have wasted multiple trades. You only get 2 max and should always use 1 when you have 2.

    will have to try and get a gun somehow with these 2 trade’s

    maybe zaha a trade out?

    You can do an extra one [3] but they take 4 points off your score in game 5. Is worth it in this case if you are looking at a $11m -$12,5 M player.

    i like that idea , i might have a look and see which 3 to trade out for a gun , also which gun is another question . Aguero , salah seem top 2

    Aguero, Salah, Sterling, KDB,. You could sell Allison if he looks like being out longer than expected [not sure of his timeframe] gives you another $1.8m towards a gun. [bring in button for $4mil.

    went from 711K to 1124K with a 57. Need to get smarter with my C, costing me points. Team value is $101m with $0.5 ITB so plenty of potential.

    im playing a player in defnece who doesn’t get a run and my AE is a gun defender who scores high. so i get his points anyway , the problem was last week i didnt get the pt until late and when i looked at line ups there was another guy with the same surname who almost cost me 11pts (which is equivelant to 100 in SC). So as fitzy says no bench wanking it from here lol

    Yeah – it’s pretty good. Good balance overall. Maybe too much money tied up in goal-keepers, where people usually have 1 good value GK and 1 really cheap ‘bench-fodder’ keeper. At the moment, the Wolverhampton bloke is leading the keeper ranks, and he costs 5.1m. It frees up a bit of cash to toy with other positions. Many just have Pope (or someone else) & Button (who costs 4m and will prob not play). It’s like having Cook & Brittain as hookers. But it’s early days yet, so you won’t know what is likely to happen. Having said that, you… Read more »

    good start to FPL! NRL SC was my first year in & I started that in R4 as well, started in 118,000, ended up in 55,000, won H2H Minor prem, went unbeaten all year, until this weekend…. Turbo & SJ out copped an AE of 3 with Turbos 1 and lost by 40pts….. devastated

    Them’s the breaks! Similar story – had a crappy year captaining wise (and also benching early on!), until I got Turbo when he went mad mid-season. Then it all turned to vinegar! Had both SJ & Turbo in my team in R 24, Strangely enough I find myself in 2 H2H finals next weekend, having pulled myself up from 5th and 8th place in either comp. Oh well – will give it a go, and am planning to VC Latrell or Teddy and put the C on JAC for a last ditch attempt at winning (in an improbable way, but… Read more »

    Hey – just thinking, about those keepers. If you want, holding Pope and getting in Patricio (Wolves) could be a good way to go – that way you can alternate 2 reasonable GK. Last year I was running Fabianski (West Ham) & Etheridge (Cardiff City), who weren’t playing for great teams, but were getting the points through saves etc. (But losing points because of goals conceded!). I dunno – I think this is a good way of freeing up cash, but keeping your options open. Anyway see you round! AJW.

    1. Otamendi or Zinchenko??
    2. Haller or Barnes

    Sorry mate – haven’t clicked onto the EPL section for a week now. I feel guilty I didn’t get back to you! How many free trades do you have? I wouldn’t go making too many trades as the ones that are not FTs cost you 4 points (it’s called a hit) and can damage your weekly and overall scores. At the moment it’s pretty tight, so any hits you take can hurt you IF the players you are buying don’t score better than the ones you are replacing. You can check their perfomances by clicking on the player in the… Read more »
