If I was going to get someone under 6 mil I would get Lucas Moura of Spurs was on the outer with Pochettino, got a start last week and score a goal with Mourinho giving him a start, probably wait to see if he is in the starting line up this week if to look to get him in
A chance to get rid of Eriksen and bring Moura in? Is Eriksen cactus?

Could be cactus, may leave in the transfer window, might get left on bench if he doesn’t commit. Interesting if he gets selected on the bench again this week

I've found this to be a very challenging season so far. I was ranked 123rd after week 10. Have had a few dismal weeks and three weeks later ranked 692nd!

I've had success in this comp in the past by loading my team with players from the top teams (I.e Liverpool, Man City etc). That's what I've predominantly done this year, but it's backfired especially with Man United, Tottenham and Arsenal players. Not grabbing any Leicester players before they peaked in price has been fatal, they've been unbelievable the last month.

Well done to those up there in the rankings. Marathon not a sprint I suppose but my team needs a huge lift just to restore some pride at the moment!

Has anyone got any cheap mid field suggestions (under 6M or so) with a good BE for this week? If Mount is not going to get regular starts like this last match, I might need to move him on before it's too late. I don't have much cash for upgrades so looking for a possible short term bargain selection.

Looks like it's possibly time to bring VVD back too.
I called it, VVD just scored 31. I didn't select him though. :oops:

I did bring in TAA for Smith who didn't get a game (they were identical price). He managed 20 - I'll take it. I was close to bringing in both Liverpool defenders, as Azpilicueta was named on the bench, but decided to trade Mount out instead as I originally planned, despite him starting. He only scored 4, so hopefully my replacement can outscore that or I'll look even sillier.

Left TAA on the bench when I traded in Deli Ali, as I went for a 2 5 3 formation, oh well at least Deli Ali got 26 pts. Alisson as keeper -2 pts WTF. Was thinking of getting VVD, but was worried about having 3 Liverpool Def and Keeper but might get him now but missed his big score.
Had Capt DeBruyne so happy with that

7/82 with Aubameyang and my 3 Leicester players Tielemans Maddison and Pereira.
Kane Alisson Robertson and Pulisic disappointing

DON'T GET CAUGHT OUT

Week 15: Wednesday 5am AEST - Friday 6:15am AEST

Week 16: Saturday 10:30pm AEST - Tuesday 6:00am AEST
Thanks for the reminder. I'll still probably forget to check my team tomorrow night and get caught out.

Scored 128 over the weekend, up 48 spots to 113 overall. Should have been better, didn't trade in VVD as mentioned earlier, could have easily been 25+ points higher. Still a good enough score.

122 Vardy

and lost my head to head , bottom of the league (again) but rose to 166th

might keep Siggy on my bench , and keep playing TAA , Soyuncu , PVA onfield at the back

time to say by by to Pickford , but no team is filling me with any confidence in keeping clean sheets consistently.

open to any GK suggestions

Had Jesus VC at the weekend for a fail, switched to Sterling today for a fail.
I forgot to check VC, still have KDB who was a fail (but was decent on the weekend).

That late goal for Burnley hurts too, could have done with a clean sheet for my GK, been a while.

Ended up going Pickford - > Guaita

could have been even better if PVA wasn't subbed off injured and Milivojevic got his mandatory yellow card......7th for the season !!!
