    I'm just getting fed up with this game tbh

    It isn't even fun anymore...
    Ha!

    I found the last 3 years that even though I was getting better at it and I think worked my way up the TSR from about 30 to 20 to 10, I was just not really enjoying it. So I made a pact with myself that I wouldn't make finishing as high as I possibly can the only aim. So this year i'm having a lot more punts on gut instinct, taking more hits, experimenting with things and trying to enjoy the little victories

    As would be expected i'm not doing as well this year, but i am enjoying it more.

    Yesterday I owned Curtis Davies and eschewed Walcott on gut instinct! Aaaargh. I've also stuck with Chadli on gut instinct and that's been very satisfying

    Excellent week, with a bit of luck may hit 70 points and top the TSR league.

    I doubt I'll take my captaincy off Aguero much more though, it's just one of those weeks I fancied Walcott and it pays off. But could easily have been the other way around, and it's a massive risk.

    70 points when most people don't even have half of that, you must have absolutely shot up in rank

    Pretty sure I've never had a captain score 0, let alone minus points. Have to laugh. Comforting to know I'm not alone.*

    Holebas saving what he can off the week, 15 to nearly double my score !

    If only I went for Wilson and Firmino rather than Benteke and Lallana though. I'd be near the top overall if I did a bit of that as I would have put Grant in too!

    Usually I'd be raging that 2 strikers in home fixtures get me -1 but it is pretty funny as the rest of the team pulled it out for me.

    I love Tom Heaton, he doesn't keep many clean sheets but gets save points in virtually every game he plays.

    @sr90 I thought you had Holebas too? One booking away from suspension but freekicks and corners for a 4.5 defender who also loves to shoot is worth considering imo.

    His 15 beat my 12 from 7 players yesterday. 4 for Friend and 3 for Capoue has also slightly saved me.

    We go again.*

    36 points with 2 to play. Austin comes to the rescue and Friend gets 2 BPs despite being on the losing side.

    After some shocking weeks for me, I'm happy with 73 points with Shaw still to play. Sigurdsson's 9 points on my bench is annoying though.

    Captain Austin :yy:

    You think 9 points on the bench is bad?

    Allen on my bench has 16 which to put in perspective is more than half of my GW score alone...

    9k also triple captained Aguero. Such a waste using in a single gameweek.

    Your score this week was insane. Everybody else has failed miserably too so ranking wise it must be amazing.

    So grateful to Holebas. 34 this week with 15 from him.*

    I just looked and my GW rank is 3,810 - so yeah, pretty decent. If only I'd played Sigurdsson instead of Capoue.*

    I seriously needed a good gameweek though - I've had some awful ones recently. Thanks to this week I've gone from rank 72 (IIRC) to 61. :dance:

    Triple captaining a player in a single player isn't always a waste. I got 32 points from doing that with Aguero last season I think.

    It's my own fault about Allen - I checked on Friday and saw he had a hamstring injury so I assumed he'd be out. Should've played him anyway and had him subbed out if he was injured.

    I've had him for the last month or so and he's been benched for every goal he scored...
