    You really are flying.

    I seem to be doing okay in UEFA's UCL game where I'm putting minimal thought into it, and rather mediocre in this one where I'm carefully considering my moves...

    Can't believe I am still hanging on to the lead, I have made some weak captain's choices lately. Anyway, thanks Demba Ba and Michu for saving what would otherwise have been a bad bad week.

    Ba, Michu and Defoe made for a pretty good week for me! Steadily climbing the table.

    I got id of Ba two weeks ago - beginning to regret it... Last weeks move of Mata to Walcott wasn't the wisest either :embar:

    Very hard to get those transfers right! It is seldom right to go for the in-form player and it is dangerous to move out an underperformer. :)

    You and MoK are hanging in some upper midtable no-one's land there... more than 100 points off the pace makes the rest of the season very tough. Still, a few astute captain picks can change a lot. Good luck!

    After this Satiurday:
    24 points from Michu as captain.
    1st in Stylish Gentlemen, 11th in Hong Kong, 1,564 of 2.5 million in this world.
    I accept it.

    :D

    You had a really strong week!!
    I still have three players to go this Monday eve: Demba Ba, Berbatov and John Arne Riise. I am praying for a 5-5 shocker!

    Berbatov hat trick tonight and 0-0 for the midweek game might rescue my score...

    I'm having a poor season this year on EPl - too many knee jerk transfers, too much planning...

    Oddly for the UEFA game I'm doing okay...

    Fulham v Newcastle
    Who would have thought there would be no goal no ass from either Berbatov or Ba?

    I think I will just get rid of Giroud. No, i don't think, I already done it.
    Expect miracles from my much stronger team next week.

    This was an awful Saturday. My stupidity knows no boundaries.
    Fortunately I will celebrate my birthday tomorrow on a tropical paradisish Thai island so I can drink lots of alcohol and forget. It's an even decade. 20 or 30 or something. Cheers!

    Most of my team plays today.. Had to make a bunch of changes because Chelsea are playing in the club World Cup. Made Michu captain - here we go!

    I stuck to mr safe (RVP). Better week than last week so far, but neither Michu or Defoe have scored for me yet...

    Holding on to 1st place thanks to that tiny tiny genius, thanks Cazorla.
    I would like to change my whole team but will probably not even make one free transfer. I don't trust my instincts at the moment.
