    I will probably change it again about 1,000 times but for now this is it
    De Gea - Krul
    Azpi - Debuchy - Cameron - Ward - Demel
    Mata - Eriksen - De Jong - Shelvey - Tiote
    Rooney - Costa - Adebayor

    Team Value - 99.5m

    I will probably make changes because Rooney is only picked if he starts striker and Mata will only be picked if he starts centrally. I will drop Ward and Demel for a 4.5m defender from same club if guaranteed starter and hopefully drop Azpi for a 5.5m Chelsea or United starter if one comes along. Also De Jong is only picked if he starts striker. If I can save 1.5m then I will put in Fabregas for De Jong.

    Just in case people didn't notice, I made the deadline the start of the season for writing the team name in here (although kept the post count 500 at the end of September). Did this mainly as it's pretty easy to have more than one team and then pick the best one by September. Will be lenient though with people who have been in it before.

    I will start adding a list of all those in the league in the OP to make it easier to see.

    A few good teams knocking around.

    Mariappa is your best bet there, he's more nailed on than Cameron is imo. As for United defence Rafael will start every game if fit (he's our only RB), only issue is he's a bit of a card magnet.

    I was waiting till after pres season for United because I was worried that LVG will move Jones to right back and buy new centre backs.
    I have always said with defenders to get the cheapest players from the teams rather than get players like Cahill, Terry, Kompany or Baines. As soon as I know the starters from Palace, West Ham and Stoke I will pick the cheapest and see if I can swap De Jong for Fabregas or not.
    Also I can only put in a United defender if I drop Rooney (which I will do if he does not start centrally.)

    According.to.gossip column LVG has bid for Vermalean and De Virjil
    I put RVP in mostly due to LVG knowing him so i'm assuming deffo starter

    a little suprised by all those putting rooney in?

    Is he priced well or something? (have not looked at players yet)

    But just seemed risky to me, and like he was a crisis waiting to happen when paired against his new boss

    I really fancy United to sure things up this season. From what I saw at the world cup Van Gaal will look to sure things up at the back so I'll be probably going with a united defender/keeper and Mata if I can accommodate him.

    United have incredibly easy fixtures at the start of the season and RVP is injury prone, tired from a long world cup and REALLY expensive. People want a United striker and Rooney is the cheap one who has consistently scored goals.
    I think if in preseason he isn't starting in a central role, most people will drop him. If he plays at striker then he will probably be the highest points scorer overall at the end.

    In the past I have messed around too many times pre-season with my team. This year I will just leave it until a few days before, otherwise I'll change it so many times and get rid of virtually every big scorer at some point :lol:

    Yeh agree with you there, I usually get 1 premium def and fill the rest with cheapies. Last season I started off with Boruc Zabaleta (Ivanovic for GW1 as Chelsea had a DGW) Coleman Chester Shaw - that backline raked in the points.

    On a related note this is what i'm on atm:

    Begovic
    Rafael Chester B.Davies
    Hazard Arnie Eriksen Ramsey
    Dzeko Costa Rooney

    Bench: 4.0 keeper, Targett, Mariappa, Cork

    The defence looks a bit weak to me and not the strongest bench but you have certainly got some of the best players in there.
    I think Rafael (assuming he plays) and B.Davies will be fantastic buys this season and both managers usually sort out a defence pretty quick and they are cheap routes into very good defences.
    Personally I would probably drop 1 of your big midfield 3 (Hazard) and get a slightly cheaper alternative and then just improve your bench, maybe get a rotation pair at the back for home games.

    Hazard undroppable IMO.

    Jose loves him. I'd drop Ramsey before him considering how many midfielders Arsenal have in similar roles.

    My first draft:

    4.5/4.5
    5/5/5/4.5/4
    7/8/9/10
    12.5/6/10.5

    Will adjust the actual players closer to the time. Currently hoping a few transfers go through.
