Dempsey and Cahill have salvaged my week!

I'm sure FF just reads BBC sport and the correction on Dempsey's goal has confused them lol
This lol.

Tbf though Geoff you've lost something like 92 points from transfers alone. And that's not including points regarding transfers for players that came in and did nothing, or were like Djourou this week.

Huge huge amount.. It'll keep you from reaching the top I promise you.
Yeah, but I have been really unlucky with some transfers. For example, putting in Djourou for the long term due to Gallas being out for the season. Great idea I thought as Djourou costs £4.3m and that's for a guaranteed starting berth in Arsenal provided he didn't get injured. Clichy had to be replaced anyway as he was out for at least two games. Putting in Rio Ferdinand a few months ago - he gets injured in the warm up just before the match begins and United go on to get a clean sheet. Putting in Evra/Gerrard at one time, and the next day, it comes to light that they were injured, when there was no suggestion of the injury when the transfer was made. Can't really do much about those really.

I would have had far fewer transfers had I not been forced to make a transfer due to an injury. I did have a good run of 7 gameweeks only making one transfer a week, but injuries build up and I had to eventually make some wholesale changes. But yeah, hoping for far fewer than 54 transfers next season. It's my first season anyway, this year was a test-run for next year! :p:

Still hoping for a top 20 finish like I said a few weeks ago, and I'm still on target for that.

Yeah sorry, didn't mean to belittle you so much!

Congrats you're doing a decent job. Just that last season my problem was yours - I made too many transfers. And it hit me .

Lol omg..

Just realised.. I had 2 defenders missing this week. So I had to play 3-4-3 and missed out on Dempsey's large points haul.

Bad bad bad.

Meh, no big deal.

Unlucky about Dempsey though. I would be absolutely raging if that happened to me!

Won my H2H comfortable.. play against the top team next game. He has a 5 point lead, which i need to cut to 2 points.. so could be close?
Still 25th in TSR league but only 7 points between 20th and 25th.. hopefully can jump it soon.

Missed out on Ireland's 7 points cos of silly decision to put both Villa + Everton defenders.. ah well!

Lost my H2H which I expected but I still have a relatively comfortable 9 point lead at the top with just 6 gameweeks to go. It would be a major crumble if I ended up not winning it...

9 point lead is far from comfortable mate :p:
I am expecting a tight finish to the top for you 3-4 teams...

As long as I stop making too many transfers, I should be OK.

Well, there are a couple of big 4 matches coming up where you are very unlikely to have more than one out of 2 of your top midfield scoring points, and most likely neither will... you could be in for a stressful time ahead.

There are only three big four games left:

Liverpool-Arsenal
Arsenal-Chelsea
United-Arsenal

I won't have an Arsenal defender in my team by that time so I won't be losing too many points from defence. Fabregas will be under pressure the most for me, but I'll still have the other big hitters to captain instead when there is a big four match. So I'll captain Ronaldo in the next gameweek (he better not be on the bench again :rant:), as Lampard plays Everton which is not an easy game and obviously Liverpool face Arsenal.

Even if I do get a poor amount of points from those three "big four" matches, I still might win those H2H matches as some of the teams I face will no doubt be atrocious.
