Well guess who benched three players who have just been picking up one/two points each game and saw them all score. :x

Cost me twenty blooming points. :cry:

Oh well, at least i'm not bottom this time. :D

At the beginning of December, decided to make some changes: what a disaster; and since then have been trying and failing to claw back lost points and positions. BOTH Wild Cards used and still no better off. Most annoyed. Still, I could be at the bottom instead....

I'm still in 15th but due to making some transfers recently I've been picking up the points and have been slowly catching up with the teams above me.

Moved up two places to 13th over the weekend.

Most likely my highest ever position. :lol:

I am surprised I'm still mid table.

I've lost Kane, Alli, De Bruyne and Gomez so far this season. FML

I went two places above you. :P

As soon as Kane got injured I transferred him out and put in Rashford which gave me around £4M to play with. I think from my original line-up I only have four players left.

Getting slightly annoyed as need to make a transfer for tonight but currently do not have a free one. :evil:

Pogba had -1 points, I had him as my captain which meant I received -2 points. :roll:

Ha! But I can best that.

I too had Pogba. Also Aubamayang who scored -1 for missing a penalty. I had Luiz who conceded too many scoring 0 and Pareira also on 0. Doherty and McArthur both had 1 each. So, six active players with an average of 0. Could have been worse as I put Toreira on the bench who got -2! (And that would have meant 7 players with an average score in the negatives!) Sheesh! Thankfully, I had Jimanez as Captain. :)

Damn, that is fantastically bad. :lol:

I'm not happy with my team at the moment, considering dropping out Salah and using the extra money to change defence, midfield and forward. Was considering Kane and Sterling if I can but thought would give this weekend and then see. Of course Kane scored and Sterling got a hat-trick today. :roll:

Aye, sorry folks. Been stretched and hardly had time to breath. Will get this updated very, very shortly. But no guessing who's won the title this year, eh? ;) :D

Congratulations pleccy. :D

Really pleased with finished twelth as I normally finish near bottom. My main problem was sticking with De Gea for too long at the beginning of the season and not being able to nail down a consistent strike force. I've learnt my lesson for next season though.

I actually won my work's fantasy footie this season, for the first time in 15 years! Not much prize money won, but the glory is priceless! :D
