Anyone found any nice fixture runs over the Christmas period? Any 3 for 1 s etc? Been crazy busy and not had time to fully look. Only 15 PTS off the top of my SL so could do with a push to get me to 1st :D
Everyone bar City and Wolves has a 2 for 0 over Spurs in the New Year which could be 3 for 0 from some if you think your Spurs man won't play at Tranmere and the one coming in will play in the Cup.

High: 38

Low: 15

Best Team: 38 - Moved into top 100 ... 1st venture here since finishing 77th a few years back.

The view up here is as good as i remember 8-)
Well Done!

Out of interest how many transfers have you made on that team in the top 100?

I've 23 left, but not sure how that compares with the rest of the leaderboard.
I know many are 'hare' teams potentially running on fumes, but they might be very happy with their current teams.
I would say you have used quite a lot considering we aren't half way through the Premier League season and the FA Cup hasn't started yet.

I would try and keep as many banked for a few months, and only transfer when you have injuries. That's if you want a shot at winning the money.
I would say 23 is plenty. In the old days we only had 24 for the season. Opportunities to use all the extra transfers are rarely fruitful, quite often doing nowt works better.

Most of your team will be settled in and you’ll just be rotating forwards for form and fixtures.

Good luck!
Cheers Happyhoppy,

I'm going at the rate of a transfer per week so am quite happy with that.
I'm historically a tortoise...with my only rise on to the leaderboard coming in the final weeks.

The saving of transfers for cup games has always bit me on the arse. When the 'star' striker you 'just had to' put in, doesn't perform against non-league opposition, because the change in personnel in midfield has reduced his supply line.

I'm aiming for 55 points per week (currently running at 58) ..and who knows what it will bring.

It was for Hazard both of us. Hard decision though. I’ll leave him in some I think.

Yeh, Hazard now especially as Aguero not starting. Single entrant so bigger decision.

I know Blahblah. Only his near crippling modesty held him back from saying “the” or even GOAT (as the kids now say).

No point.

The guys up the top will be Liverpool heavy so you won’t make any ground by bringing Liverpool players in.

Got to bite the bullet, swap out Liverpool defenders and hope the worm turns.

Had planned to swap Aubameyang out for Aguero, but as he didn't start I went for Sane instead - can't help feeling I should have stuck to Plan A as surely Aguero will come on and Palace will get a second half battering. Please let Sane assist (or even KC) in the battering!

Laporte is on borrowed time for me too now.

Did Laporte to Trippier last week in a team might do the rest.
