Rashford fouled, Pogba pen as cap.
Looked the dream, until then you suddenly worry, and obviously missed, then booked.

20 point turnaround in a min.damm sake.
The only silver lining is that the City players flopped as well (though not as bad!).

Over 70% of the top 10k captained on of Aguero, Sterling or Pogba, so it could have turned out even worse. Obviously captaining a -1 is shit but imagine if Aguero/Sterling had bagged a couple each. Hopefully Salah doesn’t so too much.

Looks like the Jiménez captainers are in for a big rank increase tonight.

A minute of silence for those who captained Pogba. I'm top in our mini league because of that.

That is fantasy football. I avoided majority opinion to captain Pogba and I glad I did. Sterling and aguero did nothing as well :lol:. Hoping Hazard plays at least.
Yeah I’m on 33 points with only Anderson to play. Fortunately the rest of my league have also not done well so I will still have a nice cushion over second. It could decrease from 77 to 60-65 range but that is still very safe.

Jimenez and Duffy did well, the rest awful.

I have swapped Bennett and Auba for Walker and Batshuayi. Palace have nice two games coming and City have a good schedule and should not rotate Walker much.

Yep, most in my league near the top either had Pog or Aguero.

Just that pure irritation that for one kick being better we could be 20points up!

The results went right though. Our comeback, Arsenal - Tott draw, and City getting through another win. They seem to have dried up on goals though, despite having 18-20 odd shots v none!

Hope Everton can for once do something. Just a draw turns things totally round.

Nonchalantly scoring the winner...

Yeah, like I said earlier - NEVER cap a United player.

I literally do it a few times a season - did Pogba today, and will seriously try to avoid doing it again this season.

Always cap a rival.

The upside is that my rival in FF league TRIPLE CAPPED Sterling...

Espionage never tasted so salty.
32 with Pereira, Salah, Mane and Almiron left to play...

Captained Lukaku which was decent, though have AWB 3rd sub and Doherty with his miserable point in a Wolves clean sheet.

Both my keepers didn't start. Knew about Patricio but thought Guaita would carry on starting. Had Doherty, Kolasinac and Auba too. Only Dendoncker coming off the bench.

I saw this leak
like 5 mins before the deadline and decided to ignore it. I would have subbed AWB in for Doherty if I'd trusted it :(

I think I won’t even reach 40 points. The last three weeks have been tough after getting 196 points in two weeks prior to this run.

I really like the swaps I did now though. Walker and Batshuayi should provide me good value, Auba was not doing anything anyway and Walker will beat Bennett easily.

£2.2m in the bank but no free transfers. I will either upgrade McNeil to someone better or make some improvements in defense. I think my attack of Aguero, Batshuayi and Jimenez will stay this way until then the end of season, really little value in strikers market above £8m.

29 after bonuses with Salah, Matip and Robertson to play. Also got Ward-Prowse coming in with 10. Shame Doherty came on as I had AWB who'd have given me an extra 5

Hazard 15 pointer tomorrow would be nice. Would be disastrous if he was left out of squad though as I have Pogba(vc)

Pogba penalty miss was a 10 point swing (rashford assist) and then he gets booked for good measure.

If he scores the pen, as well as getting 5 (x2 as cap), he most likely gets at least 1 (2) bonus points.
Add in the Rashy assist, +3. So that'd be 15 extra as cap.

Throw in the -2 (-4) for the pen miss, and -1(-2) for the yellow, and that's a 21 point swing!

I haven't him captain, hazard is my captain. Don't think he'd have got bonus. 11 points including the yellow.

Captain on Jimenez seems like a good move so far.

If I don't use a transfer this week then free hit next week, will I have 2 free transfers the week after next?
