Quick tip for newbies - You can't win it in the first few weeks but you can easily put yourself out of the running. Don't take loads of punts in your initial squad. Player prices change quickest at the beginning of the season because this is when there are the most active managers. Players who don't start GW1 can easily drop 0.2m and this will really hurt your budget later on especially if you have had a few exciting punts who don't show up.

There will be plenty of opportunities later to take risks and buy differentials, so as tempting as it is to pick players like KWP, Foden and Hudson-Odoi, my advice is to avoid.
Not that I’d do that anyway but we might see a different start this season with the change to the transfer window. Those 3 you mentioned will only feature early due to WC players returning, but could see all 3 getting some game time due to rotation

Very late in the day.. but is there any appetite on here for a SpursCommunity league with money on it? say £10/£20 each?

just short of 350 teams, even if it was £1 it would still make a nice pot, but I'd definitely want to set it up, as I'd not want the responsibility for a lot of reasons

it shouldn't be, just checked and I haven't closed it.

perhaps you've damaged your keyboard bashing it during the meltdown the other day, trying to calm the angry wolfs:whistle:

Was I too late this week then? 4 of my players scored but I got nothing. Should have got in before the United game?

My wife asked me advice on her team on Thursday. I said it was ok but swap out Richarlison and Kante.

As with all my advice....she ignored it.

Can someone explain what is the difference between GW points and Total Points /overall points? Theyre both different even though this is the first week so id expect them to be the same.

Id definitely be up for some cash money type of buy in.

As predicted none of the three I warned against saw a single minute of play. It pays to be conservative with your picks early in the season.

Bit of a strange GW with not a single striker scoring more than 8pts :wideyed:. In fact only Wilson got more than 6. In contrast there were nine defenders who hit double figures (two of which are sat on my bench :mad:). Very strong start for the SC league though. I was very happy with my 86pts but it's only good enough for 19th place :eek:.
