Except Walcott if pushed. Except Walcott. Someone put a warning in the title. And maybe Cazorla if against a relegation threatened side.

I've already wild carded. I'm going only with 2 midfield and 3 up front i think. Midfielders show no benefit for me. They don't get the points for a clean sheet, and they're less likely to score goals than forwards. They don't even get an assist if they pass a ball, it's deflected and someone scores. It seems defenders score just as often as midfielders now, either from crosses, corners, or as left/right backs acting as wingers. I wish Van Persie wasn't so bastard expensive. If there is a La Liga fantasy football, are Messi and Ronaldo about 22m each?


Depends on which midfielders you select, I've got Michu and Mirallas who play more like strikers, Paulihnio who should be getting goals from midfield this season and Wittingham/Wanyama who'll chip in with a few assits and goals.

Didn't Mirallas play on the right? And Michu plays behind Bony now. Not that they won't score, but if I have to wait 3 or 4 games for a measly 8 points or something then..no. I did have Mirallas, but I'm not putting my faith in him. It was only one game.. :fp: He does take corners and set pieces like Walcott so maybe i should reconsider.

Aye he'll do good over the season. Michu, while he does play behind Bony now does start up top on his own too much like Sat afternoon.

Taken a hit and made three transfers but barring a disaster I should be good now...

It's sad that I'm tempted to swap Wilshere and Wanyama

I chose Mata as my captain with Benteke as vice. If I had known Mata was a doubt to start against Hull I would have had them the other way around. :x

School boy error.

Make changes as close to the transfer deadline as possible. All your new transfers might be struck down in training and cant play.

Or make them early incase the player you want to take out drops in value or the player you want increases in value.

29 points, but I see the average is 21 so it's not as bad as I first thought (Captain Sturridge :wub: ). Still have Walker, Evans, Paulinho, Y Toure and Bony to play.
