    Get in… Top of the league! Almost worth screen grabbing as it’ll never happen again. πŸ™‚

    And I took Ricky Lambert out.

    On Sunday I went to a BBQ, and got very drunk. Don’t remember too much about getting home/going to bed, but it appears before passing out I used my Wildcard and nuked my team…. πŸ˜•

    Just getting the hang of this and would be top ish if RVP had been captain but assumed better to use a Chelsea player given two games – went for the goalie as not sure frank would play twice in a week.

    Not sure this was a good idea ah well.

    I wish*. No WC till Jan now. The worse thing is, my team wasn’t that bad, other than Kos getting red carded. Still had Navas and Zabs to play tonight.

    Bum.

    *Although I will be blaming all bad GWs on this one act from now on πŸ˜€

    how do you get points for players – knowing this may help me get above mid table
    Could not see an explanation of the scoring system on the website.

    I assume from this week its basically goals and it is better to play a novel 3 -4-3 system

    Is that right?

    Most info is in the rules section of the FF site.

    106th position. WORST. START. EVA.

    I just hovered over the wildcard button but I’ll give it another week

    Cheers so I am definitely dropping to 3 defenders and may need another attacker picked for footballing rather than affordability issues

    In what league?

    Also, don’t forget to change your captain each week to who you think will get you most points, as captain gets double.

    I have mostly given up applying logic to the game, as so far most my defenders have been getting me points with BPS.

    you should also consider the order in which your substitutes are on the bench…

    I’m an idiot. I didn’t notice the next button at the bottom of the league page. Now even more miffed I drunkenly used my WC, as current team has me at 28th…..bugger.

    @Junkyward

    Swap your Captain and Vice Captains around, switch to a 3-4-3 and bench Taylor as he is suspended till after the international break and will miss the next 2 games.

    I got the captain but though RVP still outscore czech in one game despite his two – goalies cannot score well really without a triple penalty save

    EDIT: That team is so last week πŸ˜‰

    Taylor is out full stop as Newcastle look weak at the back πŸ˜‰
    I am investing in steel there [ see below]

    Drop lukako as he wont play much IMHO

    I am in the process of building a RVP, Benteck, Sturrridge attack triumvirate with 8 other make weights [ or Arsenal as I believe they are called in the real world 😈 ]

    Now what cheap defenders wont concede loads ??

    Sounds like you’ve got the hang of it

    gone all tinkerman with a touch of Brazil – it all about the front 6 not the back 5.

    Don’t be too tight on the defence. There seems to be more generous BPS being awarded to defenders.

    Is it too late to join the league?
    Got a team sorted before the kick off but didn’t sign up to any leagues in time.
    Had quite a good start this year πŸ™‚

    Right, so I’ve forgot my password (and my browswer has) and the reset password link doesn’t appear to be sending me an email to reset it.

    Can anyone remind me if there’s any weird capital, special character etc. requirements?

    EDIT: Doesn’t matter…I’m in. Password reset doesn’t seem to work though.

    Too many options………….and I can’t afford any of them!!

    Have dropped Mata as he hasn’t been involved much yet, cue Mata scoring 40 points this week!

    So what to do when two top teams are playing each other and you have players from both teams?

    In my case, I Liverpool GK & Defenders and Man U Defender / Forward.

    Is it a case of deciding who you think will win the game and sticking with those players or keeping players from both teams in, to spread the risk?

    Don’t really know why i’m asking as you wouldn’t want to give me advice anyway!!!

    Use your wildcard. Sell them all!! 😈

    Your defenders are unlikey to get their clean sheet bonuses but they may still play well and get other bonus points. Same for the goalie. It kinda depends on the rest of your squad, do you have other player that may have a better match that you could swap in? If not, just have to hope for the best!

    Last day of the season tomorrow….. How have you all done?

    First year of doing it, so made loads of mistakes. As such, I nuked my team several months ago, but at least I will know how to play it properly next season.

    yes pretty much my error [ i did not even know the scoring system when i picked] but i slowly climbed the table [ 80 ish i think] but had a bad couple of weeks [ adding mata and rooney for this weel was not my best decision] so down around 30 ish
    You need goal scoring defenders whose team get clean sheets, goal scoring midfielders and erm goal scorers so goals basically.
    Its also worth having the penalty taker for a team as well.
    11 decent players and some crud to make up the numbers seems the best approach.

    Hope to do better next year

    Somewhat to my surprise, having set up the league the last couple of years and never having come anywhere near the top before, I find myself in a safe 4th place with one day to go. Champions league beckons and all without breaking the Financial Fair Play rules.
