    Just realised you can't use your wildcard and bench boost in the same week. What the fuck? I didn't think the wildcard functioned like other 'chips'. Seething.

    That Friday night game has completely fucked what little plans I had left.

    What a gameweek, Two Brighton players, Duffy (captain), Ryan and also Deeney in the starting eleven.

    I had Duffy also, and captained Knockaert

    Good to see Emery not use either of my Arsenal players too, Kolasinac and Lacazette. Utterly awful week but I am set up for a good bench boost to be used on the double gameweek upcoming.

    77 points after tonight's game puts me into the top 100 overall.

    I'm going to have a lot of spare time to reallocate when this season finishes.

    What's been your deal this year, have you put a lot more time into it then, than before?

    I mean, how much time can you realistically put into this?

    Probably averages out to a few hours on it each week. There are a lot of parallels to football betting. You have a load of data, and through some process you decide which bits are relevant in order to come to the optimal output. Very easy to spend large amounts of time arguing either side of the argument (player a vs player b).

    I've definitely had the rub of the green at times. Triple captain Salah was a last minute decision at the weekend and got me 57 points, most seasons something like that ends up returning single digits.

    I'm interested to see how repeatable it is next season, though I'm not sure I can be arsed putting this much effort in again.

    I completely wasted my 3 cards this year. It's definitely cost me.

    They've started revealing some prices for next season.
    Robertson at 7.0
    Fabianski at 5.0

    He needs to add goals for 7 to be worth it really.

    7 is hefty for a defender.

    If he can keep up 20+ clean sheets and 10+ assists he's worth it.

    Other reveals

    Ricardo Pereira 6.0
    Ryan Fraser 7.5
    Matt Ritchie 5.5 now as a defender

    Robertson 7.0 is ridiculous. He should be 8.0.

    Hard to argue against getting both really. Score like midfielders, don't get rotated and get clean sheet pointe

    You can't have two seasons in a row of both full backs getting double figure assists, surely. They'd have to change the point scoring just to make it fair.

    The forward options in this are even more tragic than usual, they really need to stop making Salah and Sterling and co midfielders.

    Really want to load up on penalty takers this year in the new VAR zeitgeist.

    I did that originally but slowly took most of them out. Who really wants Noble, Callum Wilson and Milivojevic in their team?

    My team's class. Everytime I look at it I get equal parts chuffed about how good it is and annoyed that I can't make any improvements. 4-5-1 for the first week too, largely due to your other point.

    Well, as regards Milovojevic, everyone?

    Think I'm currently rocking Ricthie, Neves, Noble, Kodija and Ings on the basis that they might be penalty takers and are cheap. Kane & Poggers too.

    My team is absolute toilet, being based almost entirely around a Liverpool/City defence, and set piece/penalty takers.

    Currently:

    Heaton
    Nyland

    Lewis Dunk
    Adam Smith
    Lucas Digne
    Robertson
    Michael Keane

    Zaha
    Bernardo Silva
    Kevin de Bruyne
    Pulisic
    Sigurdson

    Origi
    Kane
    Joshua King


    Not sure about this at all but for now just leaving it.
    Both Sterling and Salah feel too expensive, as the former gets rotated and Salah I reckon might start the season a bit knackered. Then again Liverpool do have easy fixtures so might try to get him in anyway.

    I always start slowly as I can't be bothered to look through the pre-season results to see who is going to be first choice, and so it shall be again this year. I've gone a bit unorthodox but seems to fit together ok:

    Patricio (Krul)

    Robertson
    Wan-Bissaka
    Jonny
    Evans
    (Stearman)

    Salah
    Milivojevic
    Maddison
    Bernardo Silva
    (McGinn)

    Kane
    Jimenez
    (Andone)

    Brighton are dreadful and their coach has a 'good football' philosophy. I'd treat their players with extreme caution until the first international break.

    I can't join the league though?

    Drastically re-done my team today. Not sure if I've done the right thing - I've taken out Martial and Perez who I've had in all summer, as I think they're both going to be bargains this season. But I just can't leave out De Bruyne, so out they go.
