    RU made sense for this week. Obviously depending on your team. Some good fixtures to take advantage of but hey, hasn't gone that way yet. I didn't think Berisha would have hauled vs. VIF, was expecting Stabaek to probably win to nil and didn't see Lehne Olsen with a brace and LSK winning. These things happen. I do think if RU made sense to you and you picked a team with sound logic, you at least know you're playing the game correctly. People won't always get lucky so if you're interpreting what's going on with decent insight and building a good team, overall you're bound to do well. It's a game of probability - we need to be playing the numbers. People like to say "blinded by the DGW" but then what are you supposed to do? Don't ruin your team/season because of it but certainly look to optimise returns. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and quite often a lot of people use it as a way to incorrectly misjudge their logic in the moves they made. Don't do this! Be firm with your ass… » Read

    Ah OK cheers for clearing that up. Looks like his Fantasy score is still negatively affected though.. » Read

    Haha! Same! Wonderful stuff. Still, this was never a fixture I saw Tromsø winning, much less scoring 3 AND keeping a clean sheet. Ridiculous! » Read

    Odd at home could be an absolute demolition. Vålerenga are wildly inconsistent but still creating chances. I have another set of games to go through yet - this is just half time! » Read

    Stabaek away is not a game many would back Tromso to go mad and score a couple of goals. Thought this game would be a relatively routine 1 or 2 nil home win - could see them conceding one, but I certainly didn't envisage this. Not too sure benching him/getting rid for the double was the wrong play, this sort of thing just happens! » Read

    Can anyone explain to me how Anders Jenssen is playing tonight after getting sent off in Tromsø's previous game against Sarpsborg? Assuming I'm missing something here but was it rescinded or something? » Read

    Ebiye is a classic example of being convinced by too many people that he won't start/play many games this season when in actuality he will. I was talked out of going with him despite him being in pretty much all my drafts until the last day or two before season start. Another was Bamford. I had him in all of my FPL drafts leading up to the start of last season and got swayed by the Twitter experts to ditch him. Really good lesson to be learnt here that's for sure. Even when Espejord was starting so was he. Mikkelsen is the one to have benefitted due to Espejord being out not Ebiye. And now he's got another brace. Lovely. » Read

    Main priorities for me are: + McDermott + Aasbak = Double KBK defence + Borchgrevink = Most attacking defender in the league and offers CS potential despite poor VIF form + Vilsvik = Probably my favourite player in the league! Offers more than most realise + Sampsted = Right now seems to be worth saving 0.4m/0.5m over Bjørkan + Haugen = Huge GS potential (also tempted to double up with Sampsted + Bjørkan to maximise B/G clean sheet scoring) + Sørli = Think he's the best Glimt attacker to own + Dønnum = Self-explanatory really! + Ohi = Even if he misses the odd game he could get a hat-trick the next + Berisha = Incredible stats, on pens, an absolute beast in general I have a 4m GK so nothing to write about there. Wiedesheim-Paul could be gold even if he only plays 45-60 minutes. He's scored two in his last two games and right now he's in my team. If it all goes wrong he's an easy swap to Heggebo anyway... Fridjonsson is currently in my team but he easily becomes Kartum/Steng… » Read

    From what I've seen, I'd be amazed if Ohi wasn't starting the majority of games. Molde have a massive chance to win the league this year as everyone other than Glimt seem to be horribly inconsistent. Only issue might be when European games start. Fofana might get the nod every now and then. I do think Ohi and Eikrem are special in that they are surrounded by the best players in the league and don't need a lot of time on the pitch to score/assist. Botheim looks unlikely to ever really haul and think Sørli/Saltnes/Solbakken are better options. I'm actually going to go with Bjørkan and Sampsted at the back after the Vålerenga game. Borchgrevink stays for me simply because his attacking input is crazy. He's so productive and will take free kicks and drive forward with Dønnum. Clean sheets are a bonus - only teams I think can be seen as being a good shout for semi-regular clean sheets right are Glimt, Kristiansund, Sarpsborg and Mjøndalen. » Read

    Although he does usually play LB so I'm not too sure about him in the long run.. » Read

    3 bonus points for Vilsvik. Brilliant. » Read

  12. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 14 hours ago

    Well. That's the Wildcard played... Couple of pretty big omissions too. 14/15 starters + 4m GK Surprisingly enough there's a decent amount of flexibility in my team now so I'm able to hop from player to player far easier than before. RU not gone 100% to plan but very happy with Vilsvik again despite no DGI and glad to see both Zach and Botheim struggling to maintain form as I thought would be the case. Berisha and Ohi are in a league of their own for goals and very nice to see both Heggebo and Wiedesheim-Paul starting. Seriously think Godset are going under the radar, too. » Read

    Layouni should have an assist there. Awful finish Udahl! This Valerenga team look absolutely rattled. Not good. » Read

  14. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Haha. Lovely goal too. I can't envisage many people had Viking to put THREE past Valerenga though, right? They've looked far, far better than Valerenga. Looks like the only real challengers to Glimt are Molde. Everyone else is far too bloody inconsistent! » Read

  15. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Stats have certainly suggested he's worth holding on to as well as his performances last season. It's easy to kneejerk after a few poor games though. I almost keep him on RU for this week but the prospect of having Botheim + Ohi with 5 midfielders all on 2 games seemed far too promising to ignore. » Read

  16. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Well that was never a penalty, surely? » Read

  17. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    No idea why people are taking him out of their teams. If I could only have one out of him and Botheim I don't think it's even close - Berisha all the way. » Read

  18. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Lovely to see Udahl taking his chance right now. Was a toss up between him and Layouni for this week and even though I didn't go for him I am glad to see him scoring. Hopefully he can keep challenging Kjartansson for his spot in the team - deserves to be given the chance on more than one occasion and definitely not just because the other guy is injured. » Read

  19. Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip 2 days, 16 hours ago

    Really harsh booking for Berisha there. Had every right to challenge for that ball and actually pulled out of the challenge as Klaesson ran towards him. Classic example of GKs getting more than the benefit of the doubt. Hope Klaesson can continue but yeah, I don't think Berisha does too much wrong in all honesty. » Read

    And Stenevik for 6.0m also showing he shouldn't be ignored. More options in this team than we realise. » Read
