    Absolutely blinding day, 82 points ranked 85th (Clarkson voice) in the World!

    No one left to play today so hoping Shitty don't get much...

    My 9,000th post to boot :D

    Nice one Colin. Though Aguero and Silva are unfortunately going to take me up past you again!

    Aguero and Silva might come in handy next round, Blackburn (H).

    Anybody know why Woodgate is benched?

    How in the feck? Graham scores 2 and no bonus?

    Either way I've been on a roll lately after starting so slowly.

    Can't believe it, paid an arm & a leg for Silva, went against all my principles then he doesn't even start.

    It's Bolton though, they could field their "Elite Development Squad" and win comfortably.

    Was having a good week until the Newcastle/Sunderland game. Sessegnon sent off Ba my captain because Silva didn't play misses a penalty and gets a yellow. I think the pair got me minus four points.

    Hey... I stepped on your tail two years in a row. You've got a nice lead, but I have time to catch ya'. :cool:

    Where I fecked up is by trying to get tricky by making Ba my captain this past week. No more of that nonsense.

    My captain Rooney looks like he's in the Midfield... hoping it's not a defensive-midfield day for him.

    fecked off Silva the cnut, put Bale in instead he's due a big match.

    If Silva plays well this weekend I'm buying him back so he goes back to playing shit again...

    Is it too late to join this?

    Anyway, great week to have 2 defenders and a goalkeeper from swansea, and have evans, valencia and Rooney :lol: :D
    I've got 47 points currently, with Bale, Silva and Van Persie still to play, I have taylor from swansea and simpson from newcastle both ready to get subbed in (both got 6 points) because Williams and Ryan Taylor didn't play today. Valencia and Rooney should get some bonus as well, and Rooney is my captain. So I could be close to 70 points before even considering Bale, Silva and Van Persie's games. My record so far in one gameweek is 92, hopefully I can beat that.

    Edit: Just seen in the OP that it's too late.. oh well :(

    I'm actually quite happy with my current position, had a right mare at start of the season - close at the top with all to play for!

    Why didn't Rooney get any bonus? Valencia only got 2, Evans got 1, who got the 3 points? I would think it would be Rooney because he got MotM after the game... but he didn't get it.

    Hernandez got the three bonus points. I know he scored twice but that's a bit surprising.

    I left Sigurdsson on the bench, ffs.

    Does anyone actually know how they make up, I mean work out, the bonuses?

    Is there some sort of formula or something?

    They have a panel that decide it. Yes, really.

    I was also surprised Rooney picked up nothing for his performance. Seems like goalscorers always gets the double whammy of additional points.

    Hmm, how does this affect an optimal selection though?

    If you had to swap Aguero and Silva for another mid and a striker not exceeding their sum, who would you pick? I'm thinking Lampard and Drogba/Torres

    Would worry about rotation with Chelsea players especially at Striker. I don't know if you have Valencia and Van Persie but they cost about the same.

    I have Valencia, he is the best mid to have on the game in terms of value for money. I thought about Chelsea's rotation, then I realized, even though they are still in the CL, they might wanna cement their position in the competition next year. So I brought on Lampard and Torres.

    What a disastrous gameweek, lost all the hard fought places I picked up over the last few weeks.

    Also, left myself with only 10 eligible players for this week. Means I'll have at least an extra 5 for the double header in a couple of weeks though...
