Well I think Leaving Robert Huth in my defence this week may pay off !

16 points from a defender is pretty good ( 2 goals, 1 assist, 90 minutes, less 1 for conceding 2 goals )

Well I'm happy with having bought van Persie & made him captain, so I got more points for him than you got for Huth. However Adam was indicated doubtful with calf strain, so I dropped him & he played & scored 6.

We both have 1 player playing tomorrow Cech & Suarez.

I have high hopes for next week!

Nice haul again.

Don't forget several teasm play twice & IMHO the best bet is several Arsenal players in your squad

Given we still have a Wildcard to play this week , a small adjustment in that direction may work

I selected last weeks squad with an eye on the double games this week - 12 teams play twice. I've now used both my wild cards, the last fling of a desperate man! :D

And yes - you did do rather well! You'd be third out of ten in the other league I am in.

I'm currently ahead of you, but the week isn't over. I'm away next week so may have to leave my team unmanaged ........ It will probably do rather well!

Yay - 85 points, top scorer in both my leagues, and currently 185th in the whole game for February, however ....... Next week I'm unlikely to be able to field 11 players :cry: I have 3 players from Arsenal who aren't playing, & 2 injured. I could hang on until 25th Feb to see if the injury situation changes, but I'm going away on holiday this w/e & won't have internet access. I suppose I could take a flyer & pick Bale & assume that he recovers.

I have about 5 players still to play this week so may yet sneak in front of you !

ane err Nick your points and position for Feb are 193 (164,146)

But if you don't score at least 100 in the end for this GW I'll be shocked

Yes - I dropped a few places when the Newcastle match played, but it's still my best week & I think being in the top 200 out of 2,500,000 is pretty good. It will probably be my highlight!

I've just noticed we both have very similar players still to play. We both have Van Persie as captain, Walcott, Odemwingie , you have Wilshire I have Cliche, you have Huth I have Adam & Etherington. We should have very similar points to come, but fancy my 6 players to score more than your 5 though I must admit I would swap Etherington for Huth in a heartbeat.

Arsenal Barcelona was a great match tonight.

I'm sick as a parrot. I had Odemwinge in my squad and dropped him and played Welbeck instead :twisted:

I've got Toure as my Captain. I seriously considered swapping Cech or Myhill for Hart - I've got the money. I've learned a lot about the game this year, I'm hoping to do better next year. For a start I wouldn't buy a goalkeeper who never plays!

Your captain assisted my captain in scoring, so we both salvage something from a poor choice. I'll admit that I was swayed by city playing twice this week. I only cottoned on to that aspect after a week where I think I only had 3 players play!
