Reckon i'll have to change my defence too, was assuming Portsmouth's excellent defence from last year would hold up.... guess not. :(

I've already had to play my wildcard to get rid of some players who don't look up to it this season. I've also got rid of the Portsmouth players as they don't look the same team as last season, seems the FA Cup success is still on their minds. Berbatov out as well, doesn't look like Juan De Ramos is going to give him many chances to prove himself.

Damn Berbatov is not even in the squad today! He had better be on his way to the Mancs soon...

I've taken a fall this weekend and haven't even got any Man U players to come. Not that there are that many Man U players worth having this month.

After his amazing pre-season form, I should foreseen Bent's quick return to being hopeless in the league. Form, class, temporary, permanent, and all that jazz.

Only 17 from the top, but I'm sure that's going to change.

I will try to update each week's scores as they occur. However, the final week will be late (and, as a consequence the Final Standings and confirmation of who progresses to the Knock-Out stages) as I am on honeymoon until October. Enjoy the delay! :D

Dammit, after swapping Berbatov and Tevez out for Santa Cruz, Carew and a new-look midfield, SC has now limped off injured. It's not looking great so far this season for yours truly!

What a pathetic week. Lord only knows how and why I won my first Head-to-Head (though my opponent didn't help himself by making 3 transfers and thereby losing some points) seeing as I only scored 31. My first Head-to-Head I lost despite being second highest scorer!

Anyhow, I transfer out Belletti as he wasn't playing for Djourou who was. Only, now Djourou isn't playing and, yep, Belletti is AND SCORING! I lose another Defender to injury and two strikers to injury. And we have had only 3 games.

Sheesh! There's a conspiracy afoot, I'm sure.

Before I make any changes I am going to wait until nearer the next GameWeek, though I expect I will use my Wild Card doing so. Harumpf!

And it's Liverpool at home to Madcrapster Alliance, too, next. [sigh] I am not looking forward to the next GameWeek. Tally-ho for the start of the Cup Competition, though. :)

Thanks. I had a rocky start but knew deep down I had made good choices. I'm going for the double..

Bah! Had to use my WildCard already, just as with previous Seasons. I only hope I have made some wise choices this time!

Just to clear up an issue (that hasn't been raised, by the way and I doubt that it would've been), the points awarded during the Cup competition will NOT be affected by any transfers that you make.

You may have noticed that the Head-to-Head scores are affected (I know this as I only won my one game due to my opponent making 2 transfers and having his score of 34 reduced to 30, 1 point below mine).
