    Hmmm maybe the 12pt hit to get the 'super' team wasn't worth it [​IMG]

    I think he's a good player but can't see him getting many fantasy points (maybe bonus points) but he's more the assist for the person who gets the assist points if that makes sense [​IMG]

    Just dropped Rodallega and brought in Gyan. Part of his appeal is the fact he should be playing regularly for Sunderland. A bit hesitant about letting Rodallega go, though, particularly since my third striker is N'Gog. [​IMG]

    Just one. Is Van der Vaart already on the list?

    Not yet - I'm guessing he'll be up soon - probably 8-8.5

    It'll be interesting to see how he effects Bale's scoring.

    Rodallega hasn't had a great start to the season (okay Wigan's start has been disasterous). I suspect wigan's season (and Rodallega's form) will improve as fixtures get easier.

    Gyan could be a real bargain - Sunderland are shaping up to be a good team, and Bent has an excellent track record. If they work well together who knows - they've a decent defence and okay midfield... I worry a little about Gyan's finishing - he knows how to get to the goal, but seemed to suffer premature ejaculation - shooting too soon.

    N'Gog I like - but until he gets much more gametime (unlikely unless Torres is injured) he'll remain a decent and inconsistent shooter rather than a truly good striker.

    I can do 9 if I have to, without weakening my hugely succesful team too much.

    If any of you have Dawson on your defence you might be wanting to look at transfers...

    I'd really like to sign up but I've never done fantasy league sports before. Can someone put the basic MO into laymans terms for me?

    Select 15 players from any premier league teams (max 3 per team), must have 2 goal keepers 5 defenders, can have 4 or 5 midfielders, can have 2 or 3 forwards. Total cost of players must not exceed 100 million. Prices fluctuate as more people buy or sell them. Choose which players of your 15 you wish to play each week in (goal) then 4-4-2, 3-5-2, 3-4-3 or 4-5-1. You get points awarded for players starting the game, playing 60mins or more, scoring goals, assists and bonus points for judges. Goalies, defenders and midfielders get points for clean sheets, goalies get them for penalty saves. Generally you can make 1 transfer per week without a loss of points.

    There are additional rules and nuances, but that's the basics. If you're interested pm me.

    If any of you were mad enough to pick Rooney as a forward be warned that he might be distracted for a while:

    I think our tabloid press need to do a 'shock horror we've found a member of the England squad who doesn't cheat on their partner' story...

    So I signed up, picked like 8 people who's names I recognized then filled in junk I have no idea of for the rest. My team is a mess [​IMG] hopefully I'll get the hang of this after I watch a couple games.

    If worst comes to worst you've got a transfer wildcard you can play to rebuild your team, I'm sure people will be able to give you plenty of conflicting advice!

    Well take a look and tell me if you see any glaring flaws: [​IMG]

    It looks pretty decent. You've got a very expensive defence - I'd have gone for a cheaper defence and invested the difference in the midfield, but basically it looks okay.

    I wouldn't have picked Stockdale (unlikely to see much more match time) but you can reasonably safely play Hart every week so that's not a big issue.

    Terry should be good for points - if you need to save money at some point you could transfer him down to Alex

    Ferdinand is a bit of a gamble - Sunderland have a series of tough fixtures over the next few weeks. If I was to go for a sunderland defender it would have been Al-Mummi as he's playing out of position (midfield) much of the time. Personally though I'd have gone for a stoke/Fulham or Birmingham defender instead.

    Evra's the pick of the ManU defence - not much chance of many clean sheets over the next 3-4 weeks but a good long term choice.

    Assou-Ekoto is a tricky one - he's not had a great start to the season and I'm not sure he will play every week, although with Dawson out he should be okay for a while. Tottenham have a good run of fixtures.

    Samba is a solid choice - if you need more cash P Jones or Givet would also do.

    Malouda - excellent choice and on form

    Scholes - on form but at risk of rotation with other midfielders.

    Diame - wouldn't be my choice - Wigan have had an attrocious start to the season, and whilst they can only get better I can't see Diame getting many points.

    Ethuhu - not a bad choice for a cheap midfielder - Fulham are dangerous away. My only concern would be whether Hughes played him regularly - S Davies would be a safer option if you could find the extra .5

    Park - defensive midfielder won't score many points and subject to rotation. ManU midfielders aren't generally a good choice


    Defoe - tends to score a hat-trick one week then nothing for three weeks - unreliable but not a bad choice, although his niggling groin injury would make me wary.


    Drogba - Can't go wrong with him

    Gyan - untested in the Premier League and not a safe choice, but could be stunning. Sunderlands next few fixtures are tough but he might be a good gamble long term. Don't know!



    Personally with that team I'd play 3-4-3 putting your Sunderland defender on the bench and playing Gyan.

    Good luck
