Well it was getting stupid wasn't it, Fred was hovering over the button to update with almost every shot and goal..

Glad he's seen the light
Good stuff Walor thumbsup.gif

surely it's less effort for him to just wait until evening - not sure what he was on about.

I think he just wanted to do the update and head out for the evening knowing it was done.

I tried to tell him last season but it wouldn't let me post to the message board.
Just tried again and the same thing has happened. He must be blocking my IP after last season. laugh.gif

It appears I'm going to have to drop Chalobah sad.gif

That's a pity, he was a decent defensive pick that helped me get a decent start.

Oh crap. I just realised I do too. Oh well, if I can't have him, neither can you. laugh.gif

I went to get him at 2.15 but Fred did one of those ultra fast updates so had him at 4.00.
Was cursing cos that extra 1.85 would have allowed me a GK of up to 6.7 every week.
I guess now I hold onto Otamendi at 2.05 and get that 4.00 back. Could work out for the better.

Baines at 1.09. Not the same guy we knew, but with their run, surely worth a punt?
Has Siggy pinched his SPs and PKs?

Had Baked-Baines, dropped him for Monreal the other night. Might consider getting him back as it's a good suggestion.

I suspect Siggy has pinched most of his free kicks, not sure about pens - Rooney may have stolen them first.

Still he's cheap as chips, and chips go well with baked-beans thumbsup.gif

There are no real standouts especially for SOT's
Have just dropped Chalobah although I had him @6 so actually its a welcome drop, adding Baines on toast gives me 5 to play with smile.gif

Might even bring Azpi in after the break

If he can't score more than 2 points home to Bournemouth then he's definitely lost it!

We need a biggy from Sanchez today and hopefully Kun gets benched next game, or is involved in another taxi accident. tongue.gif

Yeah, think it will prove the right move. Bit annoyed I lost my lead through taking the risk but que sera sera...

Might have to make the same move in Sportal now. Aguero @ 17m, Sanchez half of that. Will fund a top GK and a third decent Def.

Yeah, it's all about value. Sanchez is less likely to get rotated and should be fresh after his extended holiday.
He should also benefit from ARS having their strongest team available now, and Wenger playing them in their proper position.

In week 7, you had Alli and I had Coutinho. In week 8, you then had Coutinho. Who's copying who? tongue.gif

I've also beaten you in the last 4 weeks. Further proof I was wise not to copy you. laugh.gif

I had Couts cheap, dumped him for Alli, who did a no-show, then bought back Couts for full price. sad.gif
Right now, I don't need the units, but one injury to a big gun and 5 units will be the difference between getting another big gun and having to take risks every week on the fixtures.

Front 7 for most is identical. It's the defence making the difference.

Had to drop Otamendi @ 2 units to go for it. About 5 pts from Mee was good enough.

Begovic. biggrin.gif . I unit. We Greeks like cheap cheap.

I won't mention your Tom Davies pick. whistling.gif

Best to stay away from EVE players... forever.

Looks like the Otamendi holders got rewarded by him... with 0.42pts. laugh.gif
Glad I moved on from him. Lots of units to play the rotation game with the DEF.
Given how everyone has the same top 7, it's the only way to get ahead, be it by pips.

Cenk Tosun 7.03

Took a calculated gamble to sell Coutinho the moment he didn't turn up. Right call, whether the right replacement only time will tell I guess...

Yeah, if he'd gone a few weeks earlier, there were lots of good, cheap options. Now it's tough.

Nothing of value left. Need a big name to come in or I'll have to sell my Azpi. sad.gif

Selling Ota also was a bad move. Hasn't cost me much yet, but I think it might.
Though VVD for 1.xx might save the day. smile.gif Might get him after the City game.

Dumped Kaku for that reason, and the fact I have Sanchez, so didn't want to double up on MAN.

But I grabbed Theo instead. Hopefully he gets me more points than Aube in the meantime.
Hoping AUbe makes appearances off the bench and gets even cheaper before the good ARS fixtures start.

Dumped Pickford as well, for Begovic. Had a good run with Bego at the start of the season.
Hopefully I have another good one at 1.xx units. tongue.gif

Got 30 units to play with a big gun MID now. Gotta use it wisely.

FOX is similar to that, and even gives pts for misc stuff, but the organisation of the game is horrendous.
Stats wrong, GWs not unlocked, players locked. Great concept, poor execution.

Hope ESPN do bring it back, but I doubt it. sad.gif

The Ultimate FAPL game was the best. 25 players for the 1st half, sub out poor performers the next day. smile.gif
That's gone too. sad.gif

Probably keep. He's only 2.xx. Not gonna get much for that price.

After keeping Harry for a bye and 3 poor games, I sold him cos I thought his price would stay around what I had him for.
He scores, and being a DG, his price sky rockets 10 units. angry.gif
Could have been a great differential, although I'd have had him for another blank.

Dropped him. Going for broke these last three weeks in a (probably vain) attempt to grab first so want every opportunity maximised if I can get it. Not much difference between finishing 2nd or somewhere else in the Top 10 anyway, so nothing really to lose.
