    What to do with Ba? He's off to the Africa Cup of Nations till mid Feb but I'll take a big hit if I transfer him as I only paid £6.7M.

    How? He's selling for 7.6 now, so you'll make a profit of .9

    You only get 50% of the gain (rounded down) so I have to sell for £7.1M and if I want to buy him back will have to find an extra £0.5M. I have sold him though and hope his price will fall over the next 5 weeks while he is away.

    What dictates when a "bonus" is applied to any players point production?

    All three of my forwards received Bonus' this week, and I ended up killing it in the standings.

    I sold Ba before the ManU game. Unwisely so.

    i'm going to offload him and take the hit, as he's not likely to be back until February. i am going to wait until just before next gameweek wraps up though, just in case i have to deal with injuries.

    I've got Ba and Yaya Toure out for the ACON, so both have already been shipped out for Yakubu and Dempsey. I'd get them transferred out as soon as possible if I were you as (I think) the prices can change during a game week based on how people are buying and selling. A couple of months ago I think I missed out on about 0.5m by not transferring Given out as soon as he got injured.

    Also, who's this new fella that's just come into the league in first place?

    unless there're other late joiners keeping an even lower profile, that'd be me.

    short intro: i'm an American, a New Yorker but i live and work in Bangkok, been here 6 years. i'd been reading the forum for quite a while before i actually signed up

    by now i'm aware that i could get better tailoring done in HK than Bangers, and at a still-reasonable price, but 100 baht for a taxi is quite a bit cheaper than flying to HK, not to mention less time-consuming... i will put up a thread on the subject in the not-too-distant future (with pics, so the very many people on this forum with a good eye for clothes can suggest improvements).

    I just have a feeling I am losing ground. The fantasy league was much much better in the 2010/11 season.

    By "much better" do you mean you did better? Anyway, chin up. Plenty of the season left and your in what, fifth? A few inspired changes with your January Wildcard and you'll be back in the running.

    Also, a reminder to you all. January wildcard has to be used this week.

    This is a very difficult to predict season though with the top 4/6 loosing to lower teams regularly.

    Or rather with the inconsistency of the teams. At some point evedybody banks on Aguero/Rooney/Dzeko/Nani/whoever has been on fire. They score a couple hat tricks, and then totally disappear at some point. Seems like a lot of the good points have been by picking good defensive lines, and being on the Ba-train from the get-go.

    Feels like i've perpetually been stuck just behind the top 3, it's been frustrating to get consistent scores but make the wrong captain choice each week
