    I was very pleased with 12 points this week but find East Kent far ahead of everyone. Who are those guys?

    The championship fantasy is more absolute than the EPL fantasy league. It's always plenty of points or nothing at all. So, I guess it can swing quickly...but the key is to get a team of competitive injury free players with good chances of scoring or keeping clean sheets.

    Trading the maximum 5 per month should probably happen early in the month and be based on scientific studies and lots of whisky.

    I got lucky wk2 - it was exactly the same team I played wk1 (Captain included) but this week they did me pretty well.

    Just made three transfers though :) new improved East Kent albion hopefully!

    Be careful with transfers - it's a long season and you only get 30...

    There was a midweek round played. Guess I didn't do too poorly collecting another 10 points. This fantasy league is hard!! I have now spent all my 5 allowed trades for August... eagerly awaiting September.

    Southampton, Brighton and Derby on top - all three with perfect 9 points. Who would have guessed this a couple of weeks ago??

    Up you Rams!

    I was expecting Brighton to have a decent start to the season, but as to the other two... :)

    I'm finding the defence and goalkeepers seem to be eating my score each week - it's really tricky to predict clean sheets.

    I somehow doubt these three will all remain in the top for too long. But I am delighted as long as it lasts.

    Yes I have noticed that too, in this league it appears to be as important to avoid negative scores as it is to collect points. This is a fantasy which could easily turn into a nightmare.

    I am counting 0 points from my Saturday. I still have 3 players left to play but this is very depressing indeed!
    If anyone had Ipswich defenders or goalie in the team.... -7 points for any defensive Ipswich pick!!

    Thankfully no Ipswich players, but it hardly looks a great week...

    They are a bit slow in updating the champs fantasy.
    I think I will be able to count 1 point from this week's round.
    Not entirely satisfactory.
    I need to transfer 5 players quickly, as soon as September arrives.

    I'm hoping they update tomorrow. I had a couple of goals but as usual my defence seems to eat up any points I get...

    Better than I'd realised - all but one of my defenders scored 0 :)

    On the negative side, having used up my transfers one of my midfielders - Gradel - looks like he's off to Europe...

    19 points for the week!! I think I just gained 1 point on East Kent Albion.
    I am a distant second in this table.

    :D

    19 points in this game is a great result.

    I seem to be doing okay with the Championship, despite very limited knowledge of the players, whilst with the FPL I seem doomed despite having a half decent idea of what i'm doing :)

    I think luck is an important factor.
    But as long as I am challenging close to the top in both leagues, I will have good grounds to believe that luck is less important than brains, looks and dribbling skills. :D
