Ooft, that didn't go too well, dropped into 2nd and a good chunk behind first. Might go crazy and try a wildcard due to all the injuries.

I can't remember if I have Aguero or not. I don't think I do. Balls.

Once again this game has totally eluded me and I've sunk to the bottom of the leagues I'm in. OH WELL.

Girlfriend started an argument when I was trying to sort out my team. Didn't get around to it. Lost about 25 points and about 0.5 million from my budget because the players I wanted jumped up in price now after doing so well. Wonderful.

My teams finally clicking into gear and I'm climbing tables.

About bloody time.

Just need Deeney to start scoring as I know if I take him out he'll fire.

Whilst I'm not doing the best in normal Fantasy football, for this

Let me know if you want to get involved. If enough of us are interested, I'll get him to set up a dedicated Bloodstock cup.



I'm doing okay. Currently 3rd in my division and looking at the teams below me should be able to do okay for promotion as long as nobody unlikely goes on a sudden streak of form.

You called? :D

It's mainly down to fluke, although not 'played' any of those shitty new gimmicks, triple captain etc.

The problem is, predicting how well a team will do is quite possible, but predicting individual players can be more luck based.

Also the bonus points system is awful. Bonus points should be given to players who did well, created loads of chances but just missed out on a goal, or maybe got a few "pre-assists," like running the ball up half the pitch and making a brilliant pass before it got tapped on one more time for an easy goal.

Instead they just go to those who already have points for a goal or assist, polarising it massively.

Another solid week, up to 6th, and only about 20pts from 3rd. Not too shabby, especially as I'll probably be netting £20 from a mates league at the end :)

Wait, is that streakers and strikers? Cos if so, nah mate. I got that. Only 100 points behind ezpz.


Seriously though I was on such a good run and keep getting transfer anxiety and making dumb decisions.

Yeah, I've been playing it cool not jumping too many transfers in and out but making some solid changes. I've finally given in and got Kane too, really have a bad feeling he's gonna have a dry spell now.
