    Predictably everyone has captained Costa..
    Went with Hazard. Got to the point where I'm literally having to make differential captain picks to make up ground.

    Nice. Kinda wish I'd gone for a differential now too.

    dont I have seen my place drop from 3rd to 13th since I stopped captaining the obvious choice..

    Besides, this week its because pelle is my only fit striker, and I did not want to take a hit to bring costa in..

    I'm like down at 50. Have a bad start every year then come back over the course of the season.

    I am really really stuborn.. - is bassically the only reason.

    A while back I thought that I would try to go wihtout costa/aguaro, and hope it paid off.. (clue: It did not...) and now I am to stuborn to go back with it.. honestly, my place will probably drop to below 50th before I am prepared to captain aguaro..

    Oh yeah and you also bring in real time emotions into FPL. Like not wanting to captain a player who plays against Arsenal :P

    Tbh I do enjoy chasing in FPL rather than having to maintain a lead which is boring. You end up using blocking tactics and having to captain the odds on favourite player. This was the case for me last season where I was 2nd in the TSR league for quite a large part of it, just got a bit boring as couldn't try anything daring.

    Reckon I can still get top 10 this season. Don't think I'd be able to beat last season's overall rank however.

    theres so much room in the 2nd half of the season to make up ground, that I dont think you will have any problem with that...

    + yep, thats me exactly... its not a good way to play the game, but then again its only a game so

    Ditched Aguero for Pelle, although I need to catch up I still went with Costa captain as I believe he's due a big GW. Hopefully my other players have a stormer! :cool:

    Even if you need to catch up, don't risk not captaining Costa. No need to take risks this early with the top players.

    Why is Azpi not playing?

    Azpi on the bench. If Felipe Luis started every game he'd be great value at only 5.3m.

    Because Mourinho realized Chelsea were narrow as **** against Newcastle and Azpilicueta offers 0 width going forward.

    Might help if he actually played on the right flank rather than the left (considering he's right footed)

    Then play him at RB because he's much better attacking from that side than Ivanovic with his useless crosses.

    That's actually pissed me off. Of all the Chelsea defenders I always thought Azpi was the one unlikely to be left out unless injured/suspended.
