Avoid Chelsea players! That would be my tip! Lamps still doesn’t know his best team and with Werner coming in, where does he play? centre forward or winger?and this disrupts the whole attacking players in the team. Pulisic and Odoi fighting for the wing with Werner or Giroud and Abraham fighting for centre forward with Werner or what if Lamps keeps changing Werner from the wing to a centre on different games. Lamps just makes things complicated. And the defence is tosh!

2 teams for me again to enter this season unless I can get some free tickets through the satellites (which I’m struggling with at the moment 😏)

Best players to pick for me Fernandes and De bruyne.

Pick players who underperformed or were injured last season as there prices are good.

Look out for positional changes/differences - some players were classed as midfield last season but played like strikers or did play as strikers. Spotting these early in the season will help massively. Apart from Salah, Mane and maybe Greenwood who are not natural strikers but get the goals like strikers I can’t see any at the moment.

Whose managing the teams? We’re they different managers at the start of last season to now and Is the manager better now for that particular club? Picking players from these teams could be a massive difference this year. I predict some players will double their points tally this year just because of having a different manager.

Will post more on coming days Ricky 😘

The top table (full final leaderboard rankings) shows every team but summaries winnings for the manager so not duplicates , just the full table
Sorry if that isn’t clear

The bottom table is the summarised one by manager

I thought it may be helpful showing that way so you can immediately see the team in second entered x teams and won x overall but obviously his other team in 4th will have a similar line

The bottom table allows you to sort by teams entered , winnings, profit etc and just see one overall line per manager

Yeah I've seen that but I won't be doing more than 20 teams so suspect I'll go with the tried and trusted manual way :D

So, if I am reading it correctly, only 5 single-entry managers finished in the payout places and only 2 double-entry teams. Hmm. Makes me feel better about my complete failure.

Reading all the above and with the fixture blanks for some teams who go deep in euro comps, I guess wc early will be the expected

No , not quite sure how you are getting to that conclusion?
If you look at the bottom table and sort ascending order on total teams you can see plenty of managers with one team won money

So I have entered 4x teams so far end for me it’s no where near enough.

I have so many ideas about possible defences it’s created a monster really as I’m now torn between choosing and ultimately leaving out defensive options which means invariably I will need to play more teams and this is where the conundrum I mentioned above now becomes real.

Players of weekly games will no doubt know how frustrating it is when a defensive option you considered but discarded for another comes off whilst your original option doesn’t.

Good to have you involved, will keep this forum very active as people tend to be more open about discussing stuff outside of the Sun forum!

I think your wide of the mark thinking that four teams is nowhere near enough. This isn’t like the Sun game where you’re cooked if you don’t nail the block defence from the get go. There is far more balance and nuance to this format and using the early wildcard strategy makes nailing your starting 15 a minor consideration in the grand scheme of it.

Especially this season where there is a strong chance we'll all be leaving MC out at the start so will probably need a WC by week 3. If Wolves and MU also start late picking GW1 might be a piece of cake, relatively speaking.
