      • Thomas Magnum

        Even I was tempted to go with Bruno C, this might be his swan song. Good luck

      The hit-less streak continues, even if I was suuuuuuper tempted this week.

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I went for the hit option even though I wasnt tempted 😀

        • 12 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Same. But this week I have the option of Antonio + Greenwood to Lukaku + ESR, exact money.

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Got to do that by tonight, Luka is close to rise 😀

      Godspeed people

    11. Nightf0x

      Kept changing captian and saving, idk whom i capatained ronaldo or antonio

      1. artvandelay316
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Having missed a week of competitive matches, I think Antonio might be a little less likely to haul as a result. Ronaldo probably the better pick. Personally for me it was a harder choice between Ron and Salah, and I didn't consider Antonio much.

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          He scored in the Cup match, mid week!

          1. ZimZalabim
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            He wasnt in the squad for the cup

        2. Gunneryank
            7 months, 23 days ago

            I was 50/50 Ron and Antonio, so i let EO decide. I'll be surprised if West Ham don't tear Leeds apart. Leeds are bleeding and nursing their wounds.

            Antonio is the shark.

          Page still bouncing on my phone, very annoying but less so without the pages flying as much

          Stupid articles top of page make mobile a nightmare

            Will talk to the editors about it, must be some sort of alternative

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Just providing the link instead of article's glimpse will probably be better

      7. Esalman
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Overthunk it last week, made unnecessary tansfers and got 1m+ red arrow. This is only did the dullard moves- (S)alah and roll FT. good luck all.

      8. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Saved a FT even with shambles of a GW5 WC team 🙂

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          incredible 🙂

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Let’s see how the week ends?
            New strategy if in doubt do nothing 🙂

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              I must try abs sit on my hands more. Already sabotaged my team with a needless Christiansen to Marcal move last week.

        2. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          I got like 40 points on a WC once and then broke 100 the week after - hopefully you get some luck, some rotten luck for plenty of good picks last week

      9. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Ronaldo (c)
        Just feels so uninspired
        That 50% ownership is bloody annoying

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          What good ever came from fear?

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Sometimes I wish he cost 13.5m so his ownership would be lower

        3. Bennerman
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          You've got 11 players, that's the point

      10. Garfield1001
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Ended up getting Jimenez over ASM - have I made a huge mistake?

        1. The Train Driver
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          I hope you have

        2. Chief Break-Everything
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Spent the entire week debating which one of those to bring in. Didnt fancy either... hummed, harred and then ran out of time and ended up rolling the FT. At least you made a decision!

          Best of luck

        3. Mozumbus
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Non-owner both.
            I think it can pay off.
