    Lords: Boruc and Suarez. HM to Morrison and Clyne on my bench.
    Losers: Everyone else combining for 15 points!
    Captain: Suarez
    Trades: None, gonna hold till after the internationals
    Vent/Brag: Just about to toss it in…avoiding points like the plague this year. Bought in Baines, Ozil and Michu on WC two wks ago, costing about a qtr of my total team value, and theyve combined for 9 points in 2 wks! Meanwhile, Morrison at 4.4 sits last on my bench with 11 points on his own in one wk.

    My two private league codes for the FOXSPORTS one are:
    – 534-204
    – 534-195

    Please join and goodluck. 🙂

      joined 😛 I think they moved Ramsey to wing instead of centre mid so you might find he will have a bad run haha. bad luck

    My worst week ever!!!

    Lords: No one.. lukaku my best with 6. Everyone else got 2 or else
    Losers: Everyone expect lukaku
    Captain: Rooney
    Trades: Ben Arfa – ?? Got 9.8mil
    Vent: Soccer fantasy is too low scoring..

    What is wrong with my team?
    Shaw, Zabaleta, Coleman /Chester, Brayford
    Ozil, Ben Arfa, Ramsey, Mirallas /Koren
    Giround, Lukaku, Rooney

    • kingcolesy

      Nothing too wrong except for the injuries, Chester seems a bad smell that wont go away. Barkleys good value in mids but Michu has probably best chance of points for next 5

    Rank (Overall): 112,746
    Lords: REMY, Boruc
    Losers: The rest but in particular Whittingham for refusing to be good enough to get onto my first XI but always scoring points while he’s there… Reither, no that’s not fair… Fulham for being so unpredictable.
    Captain: Rooney 🙂
    Trades: Suarez for one of Rooney, Giroud or Remy. Might even take a hit to get rid of Ben Arfa. Haha “might”…
    Vent/Brag: Defo no bragging here… But a vent. Check out the second most valuable team, “sandy”. Value 109.1m. Rank 2.5m… 5th is “Random” ranked 2.1m. Guys like these are ruining the game by intentionally inflating prices to make themselves look good in some stupid side competition that FPL seems to want to give time to. Get rid.
    Other Comments: Sorry, just frustrated. Need a break 🙂

    Lords: Sturridge (C) scored half my points.
    Losers: The rest. 3 points was my highest scoring mid, forward and back apart from Sturridge.
    Captain: Sturridge
    Trades: Kneejerked Ward-Prowse to Amalfitano because he was losing me value like it was going out of fashion. Will hold the rest of the break before I consider any more moves. Will probably have to look at Soldado to someone else now that he’s lost his starting spot. However, I only have minimal salary cap spare so I will have to take hits in order to facilitate another upgrade,
    Vent: This season sucks! haha

    Vent/Brag: Had Reid and Boruc on the bench but to be honest if i am playing those 2 blokes over the guys i have on the park i will be losing out more than winning.
    Other Comments: Topping the 2 leagues i am in so can’t complain too much. Coming from AFL fantasy for the first time this season it has been interesting to notice the fluctuations from one week to the next and it can be quite hard to take. I suppose it just isn’t as stats driven so it is harder to find consistency in players scores. It is very tough not having a Gary Ablett or Dane Swan running around who you know will pump out a big score every week but maybe that is also a positive as means that it is less predictable.

    Rant over!

    Vent/Brag: Crystal Palace goal costing me about 10 points sucks. Having Whittaker from GW3 WC was a stupid move. But Im lucky to have almost every other bandwagon in the team other than Sturridge, making my team look decent(up to 106m)

    Vent/Brag: I mainly play head to head so I’m not really bothered about ranking and all coz I constantly take point hits. Oh and Amalfitano won this week for me. =D
    Other Comments: Brought in Januzaj because I’ve a feeling he’s gonna get me a couple of points but mainly because there’s gonna be a bandwagon. KA CHING (Risen by 0,1 already)

    Other Comments: HOW DID MOSES MISS THAT SHOT THAT HIT THE CROSSBAR??? He was a metre away, and cost me an easy 5 points right there.

    • Pritchy

      That Moses shot was actually one of the worst misses I’ve seen. And that’s not just at first class level!

      • DaBomb

        As a Manchester United fan, i rarely support a Liverpool goal when there is a chance of a loss, but they were easily winning that game. And just seeing that hit the crossbar, it was the worst miss i have ever seen, there haven’t been too many worse than that. He has to justify my choice of picking him as a cheap mid. Hope it wasn’t a mistake!

    • mattcraigdt Post Author

      I’ll write something up on my team and some players to watch out for if you want. Haven’t looked at making my team just yet though… I’m not the biggest expert but it might help!

      • Go You Gunners

        That’d be great mate, atm I’m looking at something like

        Theo – ?????
        Leijer Roux Polenz – ????? ?????
        Broich Garcia De Silva ????? – Brillante
        Henrique Jeronimooo Cunningham

        Really don’t have much idea haha

      • Dan

        Would love an ALeague fantasy column too…

        Do most play the Fox game or the sportal one? I played the Fox one last year and will again, but didn’t really like how it runs through the finals series

  20. baysietoff

    Ok, so done my A-League team… That’s not easy especially when you know bugger all!!!

    GKs – Theo, Acton
    Defs – Zullo, Polenz, Leijer, Pantelidis, Adams
    Mids – Mooy, Emerton, Troisi, Zahra, Brillante
    Att – Twat (sorry Barisha), Cunningham, Maclaren

    It’ll be luck if I do any good with this team haha.

      • Go You Gunners

        G: Vukovic, Duncan
        D: D’Apuzzo, Roux, Neville, Caira, Boxall
        M: Broich, Flores, Troisi, Mooy/Nichols, Brillante
        F: Cunnigham, Cirio, Maclaren

      • Dan

        Gotta be the only way to go with the keepers..too hard rotating and trying to pick CSs imo (and too expensive)

        Ive gone with the Brisbane combo too. My team:

        Theo Acton
        Goodwin Anderson Cole Watson Broxall
        Sanchez Troisi Zahra Brillante McFlynn
        Berisha Duke McLaren

        Whose this Cunningham u guys have picked?

        • Go You Gunners

          Costa Rican signing for Wellington, would have gone Henrique but not sure about his JS?? And injuries of course..

          • Go You Gunners

            hmmm I’ll probably go with Zahra then if he’ll start more.. it’s hard when you have no idea about which players have good JS haha.

          • baysietoff

            Yeah there’s far too much guess work for my liking! I’ve read some of the Glory preseason write ups on Zahra and he sounds promising.

    Score: 37
    Rank (Overall): 990k
    Lords: Sturridge (C), Fonte
    Losers: Özil, Giroud, Mignolet, Baines, Dawson, and the rest
    Trades: -Van Persie, +Lukaku (Finally convinced myself to drop RVP)
    Vent/Brag: I benched Boruc, who could have gotten me up to 45, which isn’t bad compared to some of the scores I’ve seen.
    Other Comments: Sturridge and Fonte were the only two on my team to score more than 2…not much else to say. Hopefully next week will be better.

  22. kingcolesy

    My A League team based off Fox website, and % owners for 75kers. Also wikipedia’d Sydneys keeper to say Necevski, which is the only 200k GK.

    Necevski (Italiano)
    Leijer, Polenz, Roux (Petkovski, Boxall)
    Germano, Ono, Flores, Brilliante (Kamara)
    Ifill, Del Piero(C), Henrique

    Got the moneyball team right here! 😛
