    Just a reminder to people to check your teams for the weekend. Int'l break is over and many teams may be plagued by FIFA-virus.

    Not a very satisfying round! My captain Berbatov only gave me 4 points... sigh.
    Luckily, I am still keeping hold of the top position. Next week looks very promising and I fully expect to extend my lead. :nodding:

    I think Pienaar's unwarranted red card summed up my week...

    Haha, I had Pienaar too. I would say RvP summed up your week, you're starting to get value for that money!

    One more week behind us. I am still on top. What else is there to say?

    It's where you are on the 20th May that counts.

    I would still prefer to be in your position than mine.

    20th May??? I will be happy to hang on to the lead one more week. It's all about skill and skill is not my primary strength. I am a kind of very lucky Stoke of fantasy football.
    As for your Seychelloise, you may need some astute transfers.....

    Has the makings of an :facepalm: week. Of course Fellaini knocks in two the week after I transfer him out for Hazard.

    You're lucky with Hazard - I transferred in Mata... :embar:

    It's not possible to pick who is going to score on a weekly basis. I think my choice of Hazard as captain this week was a sound logical management decision. How was I to know that Chelsea as a team would be so lame? Hazard was still their best player and will probably over the course of a whole season collect more fantasy point than any other Chelsea player.

    I feel very sad about the poor Arsenal display yesterday but from a fantasy point of view Santi Cazorla's last kick of the game kind of saved my week.... :)

    Now hoping that Demba Ba will play (and score) today and then I have two West Brom defenders who should have a chance to hold on to a clean sheet.

    I'm hoping he'll do nothing :cloud:

    My points for this week don't look great at the moment, but just wait until West Brom slaughter Southampton :slayer:

    Thank God for that! Two WBA defenders gave me 12 points in the last game of the week. Should have had Odemwingie as well, what a fantastic game he had!!

    I had Foster, but was relying on Morrison (injured) and Captain Lukaku on the understanding that Long was injured...

    You were unlucky, I can't imagine Lukaku not scoring if he had started. With Long back and playing well alongside Odemwingie, Lukaku is a risky choice for the fantasy league.

    I am not really happy with my forwards (injured Ba, off-form Podolski and Berbatov). But don't know what to do with them so more likely fiddle around with some midfield transfer.

    After Saturday's games I am 7th in Hong Kong and 1,725th in the World. Never experienced such thin and rarefied air before. :D
