- @DanNistelrooy has decided to swap De Bruyne out for Foden - that is their injury sub for the contest used.
- @Red in STL has decided to swap De Bruyne out for Foden - that is their injury sub for the contest used.
I can’t access the spread sheet of picks could you please reply with my current picks as I wish to sub De Bruyne.See last year's Odds Edition for a glimpse of how the competition went.
Here are new changes for this year's competition:
Simply:
- Picks to be sent via private message rather than posted in thread.
- One allowed substitute in case of injury. If one of your eight players is injured, you can submit the pick for substitute at any time and that player replaces the injured one for the remainder of the competition. If InjuredPlayer scores 5 goals prior to be injured and ReplacementPlayer scores 6 goals for the remainder of the duration of the competition, you'll get 11 points total.
If one of your players gets injured, you can sub them out (one time only).
- Pick eight Premier League players with odd numbers on their jerseys - one pick per Premier League side. So you could have, say Jadon Sancho for Manchester United (#25 shirt) but you can't have Anthony Martial too (#9).
- You can't choose the same shirt number twice - so if you pick Anthony Martial (#9), you can't have Gabriel Jesus (#9) too.
- You gain one point for each Premier League goal your players score (nothing for assists).
- The following players are banned:
- Mo Salah
- Harry Kane
- Erling Haaland
- This runs until Christmas. Person with most points wins and then in the new year there will be a new competition with even numbers only.
- Deadline for submitting your list of eight odd-numbered players is Friday 11th August 8:00pm and you must send your list of eight to me via private message. After the deadline, everyone's picks will be revealed. This list can't be changed afterwards and you have to take the rough with the smooth, but if one of your players gets injured you can change them out.
- If there are 20+ entries, the winner will get a tagline and an award.
If your player changes club to one that another of your picks is at, that player will be ineligible with no replacements.
If your player changes shirt number to an even one, that player will be ineligible with no replacements.
Spreadsheet of picks
Yes.Does that mean that the sub is now burned for all those people who made the trade?
Does not say so in the OP and Joao Pedro's goal is counted, so I assume Mbeumo's will eventually count tooDo penalties not count?
Ah balls. For some reason I didn't record Sunday's goals, 5 mins. Thanks for letting me know.I was counting on Luis Díaz cancelling Saka at 7, what happened @Damien ?
Didn't Luis Diaz score a goal?
Do penalties not count?
Yeah it was a cock up, will be fixed shortly (Mbeumo and Diaz the missing players)Does not say so in the OP and Joao Pedro's goal is counted, so I assume Mbeumo's will eventually count too

Do you mean swap the Goals column and MD01 Scorers column around or is there something more to it? Or are you on about the table on the spreadsheet link?@Damien : Would it be more intuitive to read the table if you put the columns with the goals scored next to the respective players? So basically alternating between picked player and their scores. I would assume that is not too much of a hassle in case you agree that it would make the table more easily readable
Yeah I was talking about the spreadsheet.Do you mean swap the Goals column and MD01 Scorers column around or is there something more to it? Or are you on about the table on the spreadsheet link?
Is it better now? Added a new sheet called "More Readable Odds Participant Table"Yeah I was talking about the spreadsheet.
Pretty much exactly what I was thinking of. Not sure how many people actually bother to check it out, but I like itIs it better now? Added a new sheet called "More Readable Odds Participant Table"

Great work. Yeah, I suspect he'll be the most picked when more injury subs are made if other players pick up long term injuries.I was procrastinating and reevaluted the pick numbers. Foden has surged quite a bit and might even overtake Watkins in more people switch to him from de Bruyne.

So many people picked KdB that the easiest swap is Foden because of his team and unique number. Anyone else would have you switch around half your list if it's even allowed.
For the evens contest might do it that the sub has to be unique and can't have same team as the player they're replacing. Depends what you all think.So many people picked KdB that the easiest swap is Foden because of his team and unique number.

I think most lists usually contain 5/6 players of top clubs and 1 or 2 wild cards. If your "big player" gets injured you're going to have to go shopping in lower clubs with classic numbers like 7/9/11 already taken by the rest of your picks. Banning players from the same team might create situations where you have pretty much a dead spot in your roster.For the evens contest might do it that the sub has to be unique and can't have same team as the player they're replacing. Depends what you all think.
I proposed it, keeps the interest going longer, or that was the plan anyway, the last evens contest I lost 2 players to injury fairly early one so had zero chance of "competing" - given KdB's popularity a lot of the entrants would have been the same this time around, having 1 sub allows for more interestCan't believe subs are even allowed to be honest.
#GamesGone
I'd argue the opposite, that when the injury sub is made you can make two subs. That would allow more combinations to be made. E.g. swap out KdB for Hojlund, but need to shift Antony first to do so.For the evens contest might do it that the sub has to be unique and can't have same team as the player they're replacing. Depends what you all think.
Yep, I was one, and like most I switched him to Foden!Good luck everyone who’s taking part. I like the new rules for this one with the sub. It’s a good thing since I’d imagine quite a lot of people entered with KDB.
