Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside."

    Thanks TRM.I am wondering whether KDB to Eriksen might be my move next week, I feel very exposed without any Spurs players with GW3 around the corner. Can I get away with not owning Kane?... Decent fixtures GW5 to GW9 as you point out.Finding reliable captain options in the top 6/7 teams is tricky at the moment; with Man City and Liverpool you feel the points are too shared around, Aguero is no longer the focal point of his side, Arsenal lack Sanchez, Lacazette may turn out to be gold but certainly too early to trust him with the armband. Chelsea - no Hazard or Costa, Morata unknown FPL quantity.Lukaku and Kane do feel like they are the focal points in their teams, even if Kane wasn't overly reliable last year from an FPL perspective. This season he seems like the only decent alternative to Lukaku. I am beginning to wish I had him in my team! » Read

    Well you'd be perfectly entitled to crow! Though of course I know you wouldn't. You are too modest in my humble opinion. I'm still kicking myself for not listening to you earlier last season about King. Whatever ale they serve in that pub of yours I wouldn't mind a pint or two ๐Ÿ™‚Hegazi was in my team too going into the last week of pre-season. 6ft 5, he's bound to suit Pulis set-pieces... then I began to wonder how long he would be a regular starter for, and then I began to question if WBA are actually that good at defending - they didn't get too many clean sheets last season and their pre-season was fairly awful. I ended up on Daniels. 13 points down currently...I am on KDB however but am considering downgrading for either Eriksen or Mhki, the pressure we put on these guys to perform! At 10.0 it feels like he needs to deliver fairly consistently, no good assisting the assister. A good end to last season, a generally good pre-season I have high hopes. Let's see how long my patie… » Read

    I was also surprised to see Kane in all five teams, clearly he must be considered a captain option, although last season he wasn't that reliable/predictable until the end when he was chasing the golden boot. Perhaps the GW3 fixture against Burnley is too tempting.Ville, who famously overlooked him at the end of last season, has him in side too.United defence in three of the Top Five (2x Valencia, 1x DDG), not in all five due to their cost/value I think. » Read

    Belated Happy Birthday! BBQ, mates and alcohol sounds like a perfect way to celebrate ๐Ÿ™‚Yes there were a few interesting characters... different groups of pagan drummers competing with each other and the hoards of young partygoers. I didn't really know what to expect but it had a really good vibe especially for a festival with no official music or bands.hmm I mean Firmino should do well against an out-of-sorts Palace, but I can see Josh King getting chances against Watford, it might be worth waiting one week - I take it you have Salah?Although Firmino seems great value, especially with Milner being a rotation risk and Firmino taking pens in his absence (and possibly with him on the pitch too). As a forward he benefits more from BPS to counteract the loss of an extra point per goal. But so many attacking choices this season!I'm happy with Lacazette for now, in pre-season he did well even when supporting Giroud so that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. It was his impress… » Read

    I like Eriksen, although i'm nervous about a Kane hat-trick vs Burnley. At the moment I'm waiting to see how Jesus does next week, might do Jesus > Kane for GW3. Too many good options! » Read

    Well Southampton had 29 goal attempts, more than any other team in GW1, I've only seen highlights but it didn't look good for Swansea.I think I will keep the armband on Lukaku just because I wouldn't know who to pick out of Firmino, Salah and Mane.My GW1 was average, not quite the great start I made last season. 67pts. I took out Salah for Willian at the very last minute because I got nervous about Coutinho news affecting the team and Cout not being there to play through balls. I was wrong. I've done Zaha to Salah already, worried about injury news to Zaha and losing TV. A bit kneejerky I know, I'm annoyed I took Salah out. Otherwise I was close to having Hegazi so slightly kicking myself about that although I was lucky Kane only got 1 point - I went with a front line of Lacazette, Jesus and Kaku.My summer was(is) good! Went to France to see distant relatives, which was lovely. And this will make me sound like a real hip… » Read

    Hi TRM,I think you need both. Liverpool looking more of the fast attacking force that Dortmund were under Klopp, and it was in Klopp's third season with Dortmund when he won the title. If they can defend set-pieces it could be a good year for them. Palace are struggling, the fans want a new keeper and they are adapting to a new system.Lukaku will score goals in that United team - he's the main man, on pens(?), and they have good fixtures. Swansea didn't concede against Southampton but I've no idea how they managed that! » Read
