    Had Deeney and Kolasinac for tonight's game. Great.

    Broke my rule and got punished. - Never buy Deeney.

    No rush. Don't make an early decision, very little need.

    Why would people make transfers before the end of the gameweek?! Injuries can happen.

    Surely the night before/morning of the gameweek is the best time to do it.

    Lacazette out means Fraser in, i'm ok with that, just a shame first place in my league had Kolasinac on the bench who also gets Fraser in, FML.

    Well, he's definitely not gonna play the next couple of games now. Since I have BB on, I'd rather try and get in a player who can cover up 4 points at least.

    Of course just wait until the end of the week when you get team news on potential replacements.

    Had a small green before tonight's match with Deeney and Kolasinac to possibly play. End on a small red arrow and a forward to replace. Deeney you prat.

    There's value to be gained early season,but even then it's a risk.

    A guy at our work is always doing early stuff and gets burnt a couple of times a season at least.
    He brought kane in about a day before his ankle went! And for -4, so it became a -8!

    Starting to think the Bench Boost this week isn't worth it. I've got two Brighton players and Deeney on my bench. Maybe I TC now and bench boost the following week when Brighton have Newcastle at home.

    The worst GW this season. Survived the blanks remaining in top 10k and now an absolute butcher job. Thankfuly I still have my BB and TC, no idea when to use them, though.

    God I hate chasing. 70 points from my colleague now, and the cap has been constantly growing the last 4 weeks, despite me having the upper hand with FH, wildcard and what not..

    Terrible to have to pick players other than the normal favorites.

    I did transfer out Ryan earlier but now I am starting to think the same. I can leave Duffy and Deeney on the bench for this GW and play the TC on Jimenez/Son/KdB/Eriksen. Or even on one of the Pool players.

    If your wildcard team is fairly template ... (Jimenez, Aguero, Deeney, Sterling, Mane/Salah, Son, Eriksen, cheapy Wolves/Soton/Watford mid, Brighton defence, Robertson/TAA, Laporte, Soton mid, decent backup GK) then yeah the fixtures in GW36 actually should look pretty tasty for BB too. Brighton have Newcastle at home who aren't exactly big scorers so you might want to hold on to the likes of Duffy/Dunk/Ryan even.

    Obviously Deeney needs to go and if you don't have any extra cash in the bank the pickings are pretty slim. Like for like in Gray or a punt on sicknote Ings look the best bet. I guess then you have to weigh up the value of using those players in 35 or 36. Let's say I took Gray then for me my bench would be...

    35 vs 36
    Foster (HUD/SOT) (WOL)
    Duffy (wol/tot) (NEW)
    Dunk (wol/tot) (NEW)
    Gray (HUD/SOT) (WOL)

    I wouldn't expect much from those Watford players in 36 tbh and Brighton could blow hot or cold. Looking at that I'd probably take a -4 to shift Dunk or Duffy to someone with a better chance of returns in 35 and go with that.

    Also, there's still a slim chance that the Deeney red is rescinded, not to mention the greater chance that someone get's injured in the European games this week to make things even worse so I won't be doing anything rash.

    What's the story with Ings? Can we know if he's ready for 2 games? Haven't followed up on how he's coming back, but seems a bit risky given his 160 minutes in 10 games

    I reckon he'll share his game time in that double with Long personally.

    Redmond at 5.3 (Ings 5.4) would be maybe more reasonable then?

    Yeah Redmond for Saints and Deulofeu (if fit) for Watford are both better shouts imo but I'm not touching my midfield unfortunately.

    I was going to bring in Deeney, but will settle for Gray - nice fixtures to get on the scoresheet.

    fecking captaining Duffy...what was I thinking.

    Thoughts on this team please, in a close run thing in my friends money league so any help would be appreciated. Thinking I may just bank or could swap out Guaita for Gunn the Southampton GK but willing to listen to any ideas!

    Guaita
    Laporte TAA Robertson
    Redmond Deulofeu Pogba Salah
    Rashford Aguero Lacazette

    Subs: Tielemans, Duffy, AWB

    Watford have such a good double, but their main options look so risky.

    Deeney obviously out for both.
    Gray looks so little a threat

    Deulofeu big injury risk, as are their other mids.
    Holebas similar.

    Hmm. Might be best swerved unless Deulo is declared properly fit.

    Nice trolling from Brighton. Despite all that I kind of survived that week with 58 points.

    Deeney obviously has to go unless there's a successful appeal and I'm contemplating a hit to remove one of Statler or Waldorf.

    Obviously close eye on City and Spurs tonight before any major moves.

    Chuffed that I had 62 points despite having Dunk as captain (total of 2 points over 2 games with captain double taken into account).

    31 points haha. Feck's sake. Had clawed my way back to nearly 40 points off top spot going in to the dgw with the ML leader not having their wildcard. Now 90 again.

    I am playing my Wildcard.

    I am thinking to hold on to my Liverpool players, who only play once this GW.

    Hold on, I can't play bench boost with WC active? Why can't I play bench boost?

    Imagine how easy this game would be if you could combine those 2 chips in one game week!

    Right then.

    I have Mane, Hazard, Pogba in midfield. Two with easy singles, Pogba with a double.

    Also have Milo the Palace lad, and Vardy up front who could be shifted.

    Who is essential? Son? Sterling? I have Aguero n Jiminez too.

    Yo im looking at my squad and thinking - is this really the best week to play bench boost? Despite most of my players having 2 fixtures, I can't see my current bench of Ryan, Dunk, TAA and Vardy doing much.

    Sure TAA would probably get a clean sheet, Vardy might get a return away to WHU, but Ryan and Dunk could net 0 or minus points.

    Really considering player bench boost next week instead...
