    I joined up. BLAUGRANA is my team. We'll see if I can make a run after giving you lot a head start.

    Callum Wilson singlehandedly propels me to top of the league. Unfortunately hadn't captained him.

    A good pick though - I can't believe so many people sold him after the first two matches

    Well that's good. I know the league well enough but I primarily watch Barça and La Liga along with the CL. I always go too offensive in these leagues anyway. Haven't played in some years. Mahrez delivered today and I have Hazard, Kun Aguero, Yaya and Silva all playing yet tomorrow.

    Ayew coming up big. Digging out of the hole after missing the first two matchdays and I think off the bottom. Still haven't played a wild card yet either. Just need Kun and Hazard to start delivering.

    Swansea look really good this season.

    The usual big guns aren't firing this season - I'll hang onto Aguero and Sanchez for a little longer but they might go the same way my short lived investment in Rooney went...

    Yeah, they've got some quality there. I think the most surprising thing for me is how they've done over the past couple of seasons with all the changes in management. Anyway, Ayew was a real coup for them. On a free no less, but I guess they offered him a sizable signing fee and he's probably on good wages. I think he'll do well for them but then be lured away in a year or two.

    Aguero will have to get injured before I dump him. If I do though he'll free up some of the budget and I cant get a similar enough replacement and land and extra couple of million to spend.

    I had Sanchez initially before finalizing my lineup. Surprised he's started the season this slow, but then Arsenal haven't been anything to write home about. A lot of quality midfielders out there and now de Bruyne is being added to the mix.

    Have 4 players who are 50% for this coming week. Really considering an early wildcard, but don't want to be stranded come week 12-13 or so.

    EDIT: WHOA, almost spaced that it's a NT break. Don't want to be hasty now.

    I started Aguero and Rooney up top this week, and transfered in Pedro. :facepalm:

    I don't think my week was any better. Why did I get fooled by Liverpool's early season cleansheets? Mingolet was not my greatest buy.

    I wildcarded in the ManCity fullbacks today expecting a clean sheet riot. :facepalm:

    Thankfully they won't be playing West Ham every week. Is this West Ham team really the same one that looked embarrassing against Bournemouth?

    Screwed myself over with the order of my subs or I would have had Bojan's points as well. Still, starting to move up the table now. Begovic and Hazard both delivering on the weekend.
