  2. Aguero Injured in Car Accident 22 days, 20 hours ago

    I'd say there was very little chance of any footballer being cleared to play having suffered a car accident 48 hours earlier, regardless of his injuries. City have also confirmed "injuries" have been sustained. » Read

    Does it matter - he's a keeper for the season barring long-term injury. » Read

    Yeah, I got it. The Dullard Party has a ring to it. » Read

    That's always a crowd pleaser. » Read

    Not surprising. Never criticise my free transfers or my record collection - I'll defend both to the hilt. » Read

  8. Say What? 23 days, 7 hours ago

    I think I'm holding. I like Cresswell but I want to have the 2 FT's for GW8 to guard against anything like a Hazard explosion and to give me the option to get Bobby out. The way I see it, Jones is a player I'm happy to have all season. He will miss matches but, as long as I have 3, maybe even 4 active defenders alongside him, then I'm fine. I've got that this week and they're all reasonable options. I got him for 5.0 and that's an acceptable sum to have on the bench if need be, particularly if it gets me cover of United's defence. They do have difficult games, but we know that Mourinho will likely set up to not lose those matches so shut-outs are not out of the question. » Read

    Mobility vs Gray and Richarlison, mainly. » Read

    Blimey, I think I may play Tarky. Burnley could turn Everton over I reckon. » Read

  11. Say What? 23 days, 8 hours ago

    We spend the week writing informative and "dry" articles, I wanted an article that injected some humour once a week and Say What - with quotes to bounce off - seemed a perfect candidate. I believe it's still very informative - we take time to handpick the quotes to make sure that this is the case. The Jesus quote for example, missed by many and offering insight into his thinking and how he sees his current role. But around that I give David the license to add humour and frame the information differently and I believe it works. David is an excellent writer and we're lucky to have someone who can produce this kind of article - it's very very difficult to do on a regular basis. Whenever there's this approach it's not going to be to everyone's taste but that's a risk I was happy to take and I know that others like this article. Sorry that you're not in that group, but I still think there's plenty every week to extract from it, even if you choose to read around the humour. » Read

  12. The Big Numbers - Gameweek 6 24 days, 13 hours ago

    I reckon over the break I'll sort some images. We haven't decided on structure of tables yet so it's all a bit raw. » Read

    You'll change your mind when you see what's available. » Read

  14. The Big Numbers - Gameweek 6 24 days, 13 hours ago

    Playing with our test servers and the new "Expected:" tables in the members area: a) are so good, it feels like cheating b) will kill goals imminent for Jonty I don't think there will be any complaints on either score 😉 » Read

    As others have said. You get your squad back regardless of price changes so it's not away to avoid drops but you also don't lose a rise either. » Read

    Ah...home of the Decemberists. » Read

  17. Scout Notes - Gameweek 6 - Monday 25 days, 13 hours ago

    From GW9 RLC for fourth mid looks anything but weak, unless we feel that Palace will go the whole season without scoring. It's Roy, I'm not ruling that out. I'll wager that GW7-8 WC's will very much favour RLC and another 4.5 with that in mind. » Read

    Nice post - was thinking along this lines for GW6 tbf 😉 But that's gone now, I've edited for you. » Read

    Yes, if it's a shot rather than a cross, then it's a Fantasy assist. » Read
