    I don't recall, but I think you do need to pick your team first...

    That works. I will try that. I hesitated because I felt if I picked a team first, then I would have an advantage over everyone that would be in my league.

    Figured it out. I think I'm going to lose because I spent big on offense, not defense. Thanks TM!

    So, isn't everyone in my league just going to pick the same top players? This setup is confusing me a tad.

    Just thought id let people who are doing the Sun Dream Team as well that the second transfer window has opened and will close when the players are back from the break in 10 days...

    Just a reminder that there is a midweek gameweek this week and teams have to be submitted by half 7 on Tuesday before the Palace-West Ham game.

    @Akmuq I believe it's a full set of fixtures, not just "a midweek game". Thanks for the heads up anyway :tup:

    Argh... awful weekend for me... had Ramsey as my captain last week, and made Aguero my captain this week... and my Liverpool defender not only conceded 3 goals, he scored an OG as well :ouch: Nightmare.

    Yeah it is, I said Gameweek, I suppose it could lead to confusion.

    Make picks on Tuesday and again on Friday then.:p

    Another decent week for me but could have been better had I chosen the right gk and captained the right player, still I'm back up to third and slowly closing the gap but I need my players to keep performing and I'll have to get Ramsey as not having him is hurting me. How is he doing so well this year? :boggled:

    Come on Steven Gerrard - score a goal or two, or even better, assist Suarez a few times :D

    Good call for anyone who has Bendtner in their team, as he's scored already.... anyone? anyone?

    "Yes! Bendtnar has got me 5 Fantasy Points" - No one ever.

    A good night to have Suarez as your captain :D

    Another hat-trick against Norwich - and this one is complete in just 34 minutes! Amazing!!

    Guess who has Rooney instead, knew I should have picked Suarez as Captain but didn't because when I do he does nothing.

    I only got 24 from Suarez cause I thought Ramsey would have a good game..

    Still around 80-85 points when I get my BP :)

    99 points thanks to having Suarez vice captain and my captain Negredo not playing :D In to the top 6 now, 49 points off TM. Achievable.

    Oh FFS :grumpy:

    I've had Skrtel for 3 games or so, and he's scored 2 own goals in that time - and failed to keep a clean sheet since I bought him.

    Somebody is getting sold shortly.

    Suarez better come good in this game. Kept him as captain with his current form, nearly gave it to Rooney though.

    Swapped out an injured Aguero for Rooney (who I didn't even realise was injured till now!), and he didn't even play! Good news is though Huddlestone is my first sub, so he will be put in and will net me a tasty 14 points :D

    Had Rooney as captain as well, Yaya Toure was my vice... Should of just stuck with Suarez, he'll go and get a hatrick now.

    Unbelievable injury list for me... and due to the holiday season, I had to make my changes early - BAD mistake.

    Replaced injured Ramsey and Rooney with Walcott and Giroud... both of whom are injured as well :ouch:

    Replaced Skrtel with Vermaelen last week - Vermaelen gets a cold and doesn't play, Skrtel finally scores a goal in his opponent's net for a change :ouch:

    Meanwhile, Silva is suspended, Distin is injured and I have one injured guy in defense that I can't afford to replace.

    I need a minor miracle today to keep up.

    Waited until now to play my January wildcard. Made 6 transfers getting rid of a few long term injured players and bringing in players that are on form.

    By far the best gameweek for me this year. 81pts moves me into 19th in the classic league and I've cracked the top ten in the head to head league.

    Well my wildcard paid off nicely, I got 54 points with 2 players playing tomorrow which puts me up to 10th. The only bad thing was transferring out Bardsley who got next to nothing in the 3 weeks that I had him and now he gets 10 points.

    Valuable substitution this week putting Hazard in as captain :sly: even if Debuchy and Sagna score zero, still should be over 40pts including bonus points. Good weekend I think, doesn't matter what else happens!

    I had 12pt sitting on the bench last week. I was 2nd highest scorer in H2H and paired... against the highest scorer, losing by the odd point in sixty :rolleyes:

    This week I've got a different line-up and... 12pt on the bench in the shape of Raheem Sterling (and another 5 from Rickie Lambert), but he might just make it into the team following automatic substitutions...
