    I've gone for RvP at the minute. Will think about changing if need be just before season starts.
    Same. I've gone for RVP as well, but not sure about Rooney, i think he might do great but will have to see

    I've got Ben Davies at 1m less. Just hope he's nailed on now.
    His only competition is Danny Rose, he'll be fine. He's in my team too. Pochettino's Southampton were one of the tightest defenses in the league last season, Lloris Walker Vert Chiriches Davies isn't that bad a backline.

    Also, is anyone considering Lukaku now he's at Everton? He can be a frustrating player to own but he'll start every game and scores a lot against the big teams. Shame he's not .5 lower.

    I'm debating between Lukaku and Dzeko. I mean last year with less game time Dzeko got more goals and assits.
    I'm probably going to give it a few weeks if Dzekod oesn't play then he's out and Lukaku is in

    yep. had him in my team presuming the move happened, and now it has - will stay there

    Expecting him to have a good year this year.. 100% starter, and will have continuity, a second season at a club, so im expecting him to score more then last year (effectivly his first season)

    Plus for now atleast he is not that widely owned, so if it stays that way (unlikely) he may be a good punt that not everyone has..

    (presuming its the same from last year)

    You get 1 free transfer each week..

    Every other transfer costs -4pts off your total for that week.

    Your weekly score will be updated live as points come in, and then each evening your score in your leagues will be updated.

    You get 2 wildcards, one for the season, and one that you can use after january

    I've put him in initially, kinda hoping he has a bit of a bee in his bonnet about not getting selected for the WC and gets a sharp price boost early on. That and the fact I can't really justify any one else over him at 8.5.
    I had him at first, but then thinking about it Sterling is a MUCH better choice for the same price. He's a guaranteed starter, unlike Nasri who has a lot of competition, and will definitely bag some goals and a handful of assists.

    Problem I have with Lukaku is in his price range Dzeko and Giroud are more appealing starting picks. If I was after Everton coverage i think Mirallas offers better value.

    I've had both Dzeko & Giroud in a lot of my drafts, they're good picks initially but for the long term i'm not so sure. Can see Wenger ditching Giroud once Walcott is fit and Ozil returns from his break, at least for the games against the bigger sides.

    Ramsey ???
    Cazorla/Ox Ozil Walcott
    Sanchez

    Guaranteed starter? I'd have thought Nasri is alot more likely to start with having only Milner and Jesus Navas as competition for his place, whereas Sterling has Lallana and Markovic. Also given the fact that he's still only like 19 and with European football I doubt he can play 50/60 games in a season.

    Latest draft:

    De Gea
    Felipe Luis, Ben Davies, Demel,
    Hazard, Ramsey, Eriksen, Sigurdsson
    Sturridge, Dzeko, Giroud

    Gilks, Bruce, Cameron, Albrighton


    Gone fairly safe with players who all did well last season. Eriksen is a slight punt and I'm assuming Luis starts but otherwise it's pretty dull. I know Dzeko/Giroud will become issues long term but I'll fix that when it becomes clear which strikers are the essentials.

    Was torn between Ramsey, Ozil, Mata and Fabregas as the £9mil midfielder. Wary of Fabregas because I'm waiting to see where he plays, and I'm wary of Mata because I don't know how effective our attack will be. I'm really tempted by Ozil, got a feeling he might explode in his second season with Sanchez and eventually Walcott to play in, but I've gone boring and safe for now with Ramsey.

    Thoughts?

    Very decent squad. Although imo I'd get Rooney over Sturridge and spend the £1m on your defence. Got to have a Utd player with your fixtures.

    If transfer gossip.is true then I will have to downgrade my strikers.

    Apparently United are getting Vidal and.there is a.chance of Arsenal getting Khedira. Now that'd be an interesting dilemma sanchez or.khedira.

    Since it's start of season only getting 1 player from each team except United where I'm.getting 2

    I've got 2 reasons for avoiding Utd players. The first is that if they do well I'm happy anyway, but if they're **** then I'm pissed off and my fantasy team is **** :lol:

    The second is that it looks like we're playing wing backs and in that system I'm not sure how well our attack is going to do. Mata behind Rooney and RVP seems perfect but I think we're lacking a player who'll stretch defences and pull defenders out of position. Expecting low scoring games, so I have De Gea and I'll get Vermalean if that move happens. If I'm wrong...well I'm happy anyway, and it won't be too hard to work an attacker in.

    I like Sturridge as an option too, Liverpool will still be attacking and he pretty much guarantees goals. He scored enough without Suarez last season for that not to be a worry. Only drawback for me is City/Spurs in gw 2/3.

    My team so far:

    Howard/ Mannone
    Davies, Terry, Zabaleta, Koscielny/ Steven Taylor
    Hazard, Sterling, Eriksen/ Dembele, Whelan
    Costa, Bony, Wickham

    Still trying to choose between Sterling and Nasri, but this team doesn't seem to bad for a first draft.
