    That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that posting a line-up without some detail on the source can lead to problems so I'm just requesting some more detail, however minor.Of course eveyone appreciates some sneaky ITK info.However, If I posted a line-up now, 1-11 without any further info, do you not think that would be irresponsible and potentially lead to blame and abuse if I was proved incorrect. It would also lead to lots of posts asking for a source. Inevitably. Both cause issues.So our request is just to avoid both those scenarios, it's not to obstruct folk helping. It's as much to protect those with ITK info as it is the reader. » Read

    Their problem becomes an FFS problem if a user turns up bad mouthing Berb because the user sold Firmino.I'm trying to protect folk by asking for more info when line-ups are posted. » Read

    I agree. But when sites like AE are now becoming "trusted" I think the situation has changed. More and more unofficial sources seem to have ITK's so I think there is more credence allocated to this kind of thing.Just some extra detail helps avoid problems. I don't think that's unreasonable. » Read

    Fair enough. I've explained how posting line-ups without more detail can be a problem. So I've explained. » Read

    AE don't post direct and we know AE to have an ITK. » Read

    That's my point. We don't know. » Read

    See above. I didn't delete but I do think any ITK type line-up needs to make it clear that it's either not fact or at least some idea on source so the reader can weigh it up.Of course the majority know to take it and choose to use the info or not. Equally, others might be inclined to take it, claim they made transfers and then come back to throw blame about if it was off the mark. » Read

    Berb - I'm okay with pred line-ups or one off selection claims if they have some kind of caveat or more detail on the source.The problem is, we will get folk selling players and then coming back to blame FFS or abuse users if no caveat or source is posted and it's incorrect. It really is asking for trouble.By all means re-post with more detail - either with some info on your ITK or by saying - "make of it what you will etc"Posting a line-up with a short comment that suggests it's fact without details of a source is really troublesome and can only lead to problems. » Read

    Yep, Liverpool always go about 45 seconds early. No idea why that is but it's consistently true. » Read

  10. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Confirmed by ISM now - "Yes, your squad at 11:31 is happily falling / rising in value, the free hit signings have no impact"So our squads will revert to how it was at 11.31 today. All rise and falls experienced by players in that squad will be reflected when players return. We benefit from rises but also can't avoid falls. » Read

  11. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Yes indeed. I have also asked ISM to confirm this.Agree that the FH chip feels a bit scary to use 😉 » Read

  12. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Yes, I believe that, for example, if you sell Willian now for another midfielder and he goes up while he's out of your squad, you will get Willian back at his new price and selling price.So your squad as of 11.31 today will go on getting rises and falls regardless of whether you move them out and this will be reflected when you get them back. » Read

  13. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Yes, see my post below. » Read

  14. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Just to add to this I asked ISM these questions previously:If I chose to make transfers as normal until next Friday, taking points hits as I go and then activate the FH on Saturday, will I benefit from any price rises gained up until Saturday morning (the point when the chip is activated?) In other words, it is a better strategy to activate the chip late so that price changes are reflected in my line-up before activation. As I understand it, once activated, my squad will not benefit from any rises gained from players brought in.They answered..."There is no benefit to be gained, you squad, including bank balance goes back to how it was at he start of the gameweek." » Read

    I think it's because we've duplicate FH HT's going on. » Read

  16. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 3 hours ago

    Why? Unless you can hand on heart say you were going Murray or Wood, you've lost nothing. Most had Barnes and he got 1 point. » Read

  17. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 4 hours ago

    He mentioned possibly starting Bednarek - he didn't confirm he'd start with him, he said it was an option to retain the back three. The guy had never started a PL match and Saints were at home. I think it was reasonable to expect a back four and two up front. » Read

  18. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 4 hours ago

    I don't disagree with you. I'd prefer less assists and just rely on Opta's definition. More assists through Fantasy Assists cause the confusion and lead to complex rules. » Read

  19. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 4 hours ago

    Shaqiri would not have got the assist had Diouf had an initial shot but that's not what happened. » Read

  20. Dugout Discussion - Spurs vs Man City 7 days, 4 hours ago

    Yep. But it was an own goal so he didn't score from a second attempt or touch. » Read
