Used my free hit. Couldn’t bring myself to buy Richarlison or any other Blues though. Captained Son who did nothing, Ings did nothing, bought in a Palace defender. Did have Maddison and Albrighton.

As he has most of the season, Rico Henry stayed unused as my second sub. Every other fucker captained, and in one case triple captained Richie-la. Going backwards at a rate of knots.

I took the punt that double Everton defence would suffice, and that Kane outscored Richarlison. Not a good punt so far. Ings as captain, and Coutinho in the team, so it was painful watching Ings miss on that lovely lay up from Coutinho. Maddison and Digne as bright spots in my FH. Won't win the thing after these last GW's, but probably can't mess up my rank completely either. One of those red cards for Richarlison would be welcomed, as much as I don't wish adversity on someone else...  :P

Top since GW 1 until this week, 7 red arrows in last 8 weeks. Massive bottle job from me here. Full arsenal. Second place captained Son, KDB and Richarlson last 3 weeks. I woke up at 10.20 Sunday with Salah still in my team and panicked. Disaster.

. I've added Joel because I must have one Red at all times, and you'd have to think he's a certainty to play.

Had him as last man on the bench, though, didn't I? Behind Amartey! I deserve the pain.

The guy in my work league who threatened the impossible by closing my 160 point lead to 60 last week, with a wildcard and triple captain to come, ballsed up by missing the gw37 deadline by a few minutes, but didn't realise until he'd already made 3 transfers that will take effect in gw38. He's scored 18 points and has to decide which chip gets flushed. So much for the competition!

I will claim the Mateta points off the bench thanks to Fucking Pip wasting my free hit selection of Raheem. Win-win, would've sickened me if Sterling won the title off his arse.

I don't know, but would very much like to know. I think Salah starts, but really don't like that injury scare, and what it could do to his minutes. Son is the obvious one, but a part of me wants Mane, or just to keep Salah. I want to get back in the top 100 (from 103), and I am unsure of whether to attack or be safer (with Son).

I've got to overtake a 30 point lead to win my work league. Trying to think of a way to gamble as he's got a very similar team to mine.

Inevitably he'll be picking either Son or Kane as captain.

Closed in my main league (my sunday football team) with my wildcard for 101 last week. Leader came out of the blocks on gd 1 66th in the entire world, was down over 80 points after 1 week! Chasing the bastard ever since.  ;D

Caught him around Christmas but then Mo fell off a cliff after afcon and he pulled away again, but i went bench boost dbl gw 36 then wildcard dbl gw 37 and now iv closed to within 17 points from near 100 back and ive got triple cap left. 350k overall.

Hes sweating

Lets win this Title(s) then lads  ;D

Awesome!

Stormed to the wire 110-101-112 last 3 weeks, won my football team and associates league with my first lead of the year  ;D Ditto with a small Big Soccer board and landed exactly 100th on Rawk. #702 itw on the game week.

Last name on the second Page i am definitively taking that, i touched the first page briefly (my annual goal, often unfulfilled) in Christmas about but then nosedived way down the list.

Just that last 10 mins of the real thing not too brilliant. ah well.

So it's you that bumped me out of the RAWK top 100 on the last day! Well, you and two others. I really pulled a Villa in the last 7 gameweeks, only ranked inside the top 2.5 million in one of those weeks (when I used the free hit). Just didn't react quickly enough to Mo's scoring dip, Son and KdB surges, etc.

Bargains of the season:

In defence it would have to be MATIP ... many of us thought he wouldn't play enough games,
but he played a full 90 minutes in 31/38, with 3 goals, 3 assists, 17 clean sheets, 20 bonus points.

In midfield: BOWEN of West Ham, one of only 3 midfielders to reach 200 points, along with Salah and Son who were nearly twice the price.

Forwards: PUKKI of relegated Norwich finished 3rd, and DENNIS of relegated Watford 6th.


TOP 15 (7 from Liverpool)

Alisson, Lloris.
Alexander-Arnold, Cancelo, Robertson, Van Dijk, Matip.
Salah, Son, Bowen, De Bruyne, Mane.
Kane, Ronaldo, Pukki.

Well done, the Stats page officially says the top 10 bargains of the season were:

1. Matip
2. Bowen
3. Coady
4. Alisson
5. Lloris
6. Dier
7. Sa
8. R. Sanchez
9. Cancelo
10. Cash

However, this is based on closing prices, so if you got them early the outcomes could differ, eg. Trent jumps from 27th to 10th based on his opening price if we ignore everyone else's price rise. Still interesting to look at the value ratings though, because I always instinctively assumed Trent and Robbo were by far the best value in the game.

If you get him: you feel dirty and he might not settle that quickly.

If you don't get him: you feel clean but on his first hatrick you sink like a stone, on his second you consider getting him- where you'll feel dirty AND also be behind those that pulled the trigger earlier.

I won't select him initially if he's over 11.0, but will keep funds in reserve so I can pounce if he settles quickly. I took the same approach with other fancypants new arrivals like Werner and Crissy Ronaldo (never ended up selecting either of them, obvs).
