    Decent start to the season. I am 5th. But disappointingly thin line-up this year. Only 30 teams. Hwhy?

    Lousy start for me - Aguero as captain and ramires as my Chelsea cover :(

    things can only get better...

    Poor start for me as well. Swapped Aguero for Tevez for my FT of the week.

    Poor starts all around!

    (Same FT made as you, Reynard. Was counting on Agüero)

    Disappointing, but Tevez is surprisingly cheap. Hopefully he plays an uninterrupted season!

    Went from 2nd to 12th after Chelsea v. Reading and subs. Had Podolski and Giroud on because I couldn't decide who would be more reliable and forgot to swap one out, oops. Almost wanted to use my wildcard o make unnecessary changes already. FT brought in Davis to save .5 from the reserve keeper slot

    Argh. Was counting on Sunderland shutting up shop and Swanswea to continue their unbreached defense. Team in shambles right now.

    Tevez may catapult you up to a less embarrassing table position. I am relying on Podolski and Santi Cazorla to save my week (and, more likely, Djemba Ba). :embar:

    Even as a Baggie fan I was counting on a cleansheet from Baines and maybe something from Pienaar...

    You were right - helped me jump six places in the league table.

    I'm nervous as to whether Tevez or RvP was the right captain choice this week. We'll find out soon...

    You can hardly complain after getting 24 points from Tevez? I have avoided Tevez since I don't know which striker will play for Man C, I avoided RVP on cost grounds. Will probably regret these decisions.

    I got 14 points from Michu as my captain this week. Not a disaster. Now crossing my fingers that Arsenal will start scoring against Liverpool today. And I need a good performance from Newcastle over Villa (having Ba and Krul in my teaml).

    I have fallen to 9th after Saturday's games. Unacceptable mediocrity! :foo:

    Thank you Santi Cazorla, thank you Podolski, thanks for the clean sheet Arsenal. Now I only need Newcastle to do the same with a goal or two from Djemba Ba and this round will be more than decent! :D

    It's not lonely at the top. Only 6 points between the leader and the 6th!! I am happy to be at 3rd despite some poor or unlucky decisions. This last round I had Demba Ba on the bench only to see him back in form and score twice against Everton. Good decision however to put Podolski as captain.

    Who else is doing well but should be doing a lot better? :D
