I think my £50 donation to charity if Ricky beat me and Block is looking pretty safe. But I feel bad for the charities having to rely on Ricky - it’s tantamount to backing a horse with no legs. So I’ll still be making the donation. I will take suggestions for a charity once the comp ends and if I scoop a big prize then I’ll up the amount further 👍
Has Ricky conceded the H2H to you yet or is he trying to cling on like Trump?

That's why you needed Dibusz as backup keeper 8-)

Very few can get 11 on the pitch this week without a -4 or -8 it would seem.

that sounds familiar to me... I am banking on a Dinamo Kiev clean sheet vs Barcelona too :D

My 2nd best team has 7 red flags - Messi, Fati, Kimmich, TAA, Neto, Pepe and Ba :shock:

Might have to take as many hits as Ricky normally does.

That makes me feel a bit better. I've taken a - 4 but could have quite easily done another 3

I’ve taken loads of -4s and a couple of -8s. They are only really -1s if you would otherwise have not had a player starting and you bring in a player from a team who wins.

Bono a killer for me as have not had the luxury of shipping him so hoping a Gulacsi miracle happens again :D

Keeper saved from Werner and then Giroud put it in. WhoScored don't give assists for that.

I didn't need to take any -4s this week, but did so in my two lowest ranked sides, transferring out Werner as I thought he may not start.

I am stocked to the brim with Ronaldo (x4 Capt), Lewandowski (x4 Capt) and Haaland in multiple this week, but a couple of players around them have been really disappointing. It's been a slog so far.

Sanusi is an absolute steal in this game and was a no-brainer if you wanted a base price defender in your squad. I know some went for Skrtel instead :lol:

What are we doing with Lewandowski now Bayern have wrapped up the group?

Tough beat for CBN there, benching both Hateboer and Gosens and not getting any dropouts. I didn't fancy Atalanta either and did the same, benching all three of my Gosens. That was a -9 swing in my top side given I had Thauvin :roll:

Well done Steve, cream of the crop at the moment.

Certainly is.

50/50 on Lewa, too many variables a week ahead. I'd back him against anyone and he tends to start irrespective, but with qualification secured and Atletico away up next, there are more secure options. This is where solid squads and good transfer planning certainly comes into it, as there will be a lot of not-secure starters here on in - and that's without Covid!

Cheers LG - 2 GWs is still a long way to go in this format so could still end up with a loss overall, but it's exciting to be in contention for the big money at this stage.

Bayern have a tricky run of Bundesliga fixtures coming up and surely Lewandowski will have to rest at some point. It makes perfect sense to do it now with the group wrapped up, but perhaps he really wants that CL goldenboot and will be letting his manager know that. Even so - I would expect greatly reduced minutes in the remaining 2 games.

Yeah still quite tight so plenty to play for but I’ve had two average weeks which you can’t really afford in a short form game.

Held my position and sat in 793rd with my single entry.
Team looks well set for next week, possibly look to shift coman and pasalic.
Be happy with top 500

Lewandowski, along with Leno and Goretzka, not travelling to Madrid for tomorrow's game. The manager said he will rotate as well.
That's a bye for me
