Cheers buddy! Interesting to see whether Ronaldo comes back into that line-up.

Also notable is that Anelka starts as a lone striker tonight which means my plan to replace him with Berba may have to be rethought.
Ronaldo has to come back in since Adebayor has a nice healthy suspension :shifty: And to answer your previous comment, aye, I can afford Torres, Drogba and Ronaldo, by replacing Alonso with Mullins, Adebayor with Torres, Robinho with Windass (soo many things wrong with that) and Young with Ronaldo.

Phil Scorali is personally raping me by not playing Drogba.

He HAS to play him against West Brom. He absolutely HAS to.

Not sure why Scolari is being so stubborn about only playing 1 up front. Drogba + Anelka > Deco + Ballack imo.

It's because the traditional 4-4-2 scares Chelsea

After a disappointing few weeks, I'm definitely picking Eyebrow as my captain this week just for some guaranteed points. Home to West Brom? That can't possibly go wrong can it?

Can it?

:rofl:

You can always tell people want to play it safe when they make a top 4 defender their captain
guranteed 12 points
Personally, I'm gonna start bringing in some Blackburn personell.
I dont know how long you guys have been playing FF for, but I think in 05/06 Gamst Pedersen was hot property, and for £6.5m I think he's definately worth the buy now

Given
Arbeloa Alex Bosingwa
Ronaldo(c) Deco Gamst Pedersen Geovanni
Santa-Cruz Agbonlahor Crouch

is the dream team for this week, you heard it here first :p:

I'd avoid Pedersen, he has been ***** since 05/06.

Fantasy Cup is back :excited::excited::excited:

1st round I'm up against the equivalent of Northampton Town The guy is ranked 1.5m out of 1.8m total. His team isn't bad, but he has made 14 transfers over the last 3 weeks, including 8 last week, so I hope for some more Hope my 4 point spend this week doesn't see a cupset...

The hilarious thing is that this past week, where most people scored really low, was the qualifying round for the cup, so a lot of the high ranked people are out already :laugh: 31 points would have seen you progress.

Alex could be facing a 3 week suspension for a stamping incident in mondays game, although it's unlikely the FA will do anything. They are looking at the television footage though

Lets see about Pedersen
How does this Fantasy Championship work?
From the looks of it, in GW18 I lost against my opponent, he got 41 & I got 36, but i cant really find a message saying I've been knocked out

edit: never mind.
I got it :p:

Wow I never knew there was a Fantasy Cup! ^^

I was so close to not qualifying though:

"Fantasy cup - Qualifying
Gameweek 18 (20 Dec) is a qualifying round. The top 1,048,576 scorers in Gameweek 18 will enter the first round in Gameweek 19 (26 Dec)"

"Next round
1 The Invincibles Jackal's Jewels
Qualifying round
Qualified for the first round with a Gameweek 18 ranking of 1,021,290."

Only 30,000 people below me qualified! I guess I was lucky then!!!

My fantasy cup opponent had 9 players this week who didn't play... :rofl: his team value has fallen by almost 4 million, and loads of those players are either long term injuries, have transferred already or have no hope of playing in the next few weeks...
Unless Friedel saves a 10 penalties, I don't think I should lose next week

Qualifying round

Qualified for the first round with a Gameweek 18 ranking of 873,912.

Opponent has... average players.. who could do well but could equally do just as bad. So might be close?

"Robinho has recovered from his ankle injury in time to play on Boxing Day."

:woo: If Drogba starts, this could be a great week for me

Team this week: Reina, Djourou, Bosingwa (c), Alex, Arbeloa, Ronaldo, Ireland, Alonso, Geovanni, Drogba, Robinho.

^Nice team.

Please someone tell me Berbatov in for Anelka is a good idea? I just need one person to confirm it so I can come back and blame them rather than myself.

It actually doesn't sound like a good idea this week, because Stoke away is much harder than West Brom at home. Can't see Scolari dropping Anelka either
