How you looking lads? Happy?
Not really, but suppose it's all relative - just doesn't look as good as my 6-man league team for obvious reasons.

5th pick so in that middle ground that feels neither here nor there - still never been higher that 4th pick :evil: . Those forwards sure disappeared quickly! Hoping the Maguire deal to Utd goes through...

De Gea, Fabri
Walker, Young, Maguire, Sanchez, Kolasinac
Hazard, Alli, Keita, Felipe Anderson, Schurrle
Lukaku, Reid, Murray
I really like it. Good position 5th imo

Must admit I was very pleased Vardy and Morata were still there for my 2nd and 3rd picks, was worrying about my forward line from 1st pick

Just hope Alder moves to Utd now!

My first forward pick was Josh King lol. He was the best from a bad bunch. Not a total nightmare with Austin and Trashford compared to what I expected.

Alisson, Karius
Mendy, Stones, Robertson, Gomez, Aurier
De Bruyne, D Silva, Mahrez, B Silva, Moura
Mitrovic, Iheanacho, Wilson

As a Man City fan I'm delighted with my lot! The City mids will obviously be subject to rotation, but should all score very well when they do play and the Man City and Pool players are all largely fixture proof. Was shut out of the decent strikers but in the end got 3 that should at least get some game time, if 5-5-0 were a valid formation I'd be thinking about playing it. The question is will I get 11 playing most weeks?

From 8th spot I picked up:

Lloris, Vorm
Alonso, Davies, PVA, Bertrand, Sokratis
Eriksen, Son, Pogba, Sessengon, Antonio
Firmino, Wood, Benteke

Happy with most of the picks, apart from Antonio and I already have some waiver requests in to shift him. He was a bit of a panic buy as time ran out. I really wanted Sterling and thought he'd possibly be still available at pick eight but he was taken at seven. Was a tough choice between Eriksen as a safe pick at pick 9 or a slightly riskier Sanchez or Mane.

Tried to pick solid starters for the most part (Pogba a risk obviously). Now just have to hope that there's a decent new signing to pick up on the waivers before the game starts. I doubt there will be so I think it'll go to league table order from GW2.

Fabianski/ McCarthy
Coleman/ Vertonghen/ David Luiz/ Jones/ Mustafi
Sánchez/ Richarlison/ Mkhitaryan/ Lingard/ Jahanbakhsh
Agüero/ Arnautovic/ Tosun

Not sure what to make out of this lot. Forward line is surprisingly strong. Resulted in dodgy starters in midfield/defence etc.

Bottom of the barrel keepers....

I picked third and ended up with:

Leno, Cech
Valencia, Trippier, Monreal, Sakho, Cresswell
Sane, Willian, Gross, Pedro, Gudmunsson
Auba, Jesus, Giroud

Fairly happy with that. May struggle to get an eleven who all start GW1 though.

I have done three FISO drafts in the last 10 days and have picked up Auba and Gross in all of them.

Personally I think this is the best one. Number 4? Perfect number


Just realised my team is made of Andy Carroll

Austin, Mane , Kompany, Ramsey, Heaton, Bailly

Cane we have a prize for who has the highest amount of injured players :lol:

The inevitable bun fight over Kepa I see! MorrisonDullforce happy to stick with his Arsenal keeper combo rather than take first refusal while the rest of us circled...!

Strange one that. I wasn't expecting Kepa and Mina. They were my 1 and 2 draft order. Gives me some hope...Not much..but some

Mina was on my radar but I'm pretty happy with my defence tbh - it's the rest of the team that needs some attention!

Bloody hell, knew I'd struggle with the 7th pick but didn't think I would struggle this bad and there isn't much option to do a lot about it

What is a guy meant to do. :lol:

Anyone fancy chucking me a decent player that actually plays

Very tough week for you there, hopefully Mane points tomorrow! With 20/20 hindsight the forward line of Deeney, Murray and Mounie would have done much better, all waiting in the wings for you if you are so inclined, and all probably nailed on.

I'm going to have to do something like that . Long way to go but already so far behind. Guess Arsenal and Chelsea fixtures get better too. Sterling dropped was just mind boggling

I'm sure Sterling wasn't dropped, just rotated. At least if he doesn't play at all he gets you points off your bench, Mahrez cost me 5 points by coming on as sub!

They are the worse ones ain't they. Had sterling first on bench last week for yarmalenko to come on costing me 10 points

Good game lads. Just managed to have that extra bit of luck when it mattered, which lets face it, it's what you need to win a draft. Regardless of the win I did enjoy the game and it could have gone any way. Hope to see you in a draft league next season . All the best

Yes I was quite fortunate with that. You were 57 points behind me 2 gw week ago and you actually were winning the game until Mane got his second. Very tense
