    In hindsight maybe but would you have thought that up against 2nd in the league best defence prior to the game) and a flying Vardy - even if you are a pool fan!

    In his last ten gameweeks (since gameweek 9) TAA scores were as follows -

    2,1,7,2,2,10,3,1,6.24

    Plus the irony is not lost on me that I got slated for captaining TAA with treble pool defence gw1.
    That is the real sickner for me!

    If you are forking out that much for a player you have to play him regardless of opposition I'd say

    If you have the highest valued midfielder/striker you wouldn't bench them would you?!

    Depends on the fixtures and if I feel another option would do better regardless of price.
    The price of a player does not indicate that they are going to do well especially if they are faced with a difficult fixture.
    The only time I break this way of thinking is if I see the player is in real form - which is why I started Vardy/Mane.

    Somehow up to 11th after last night's match.

    dweatherston11 indeed going very strong still. He had 19 points sitting on his bench too!

    Ha. I'm not much better.

    But there were quite a few in the same predicament. Leicester played a lot of people. They get away with the Vardy one but the rest of their bench was insane.

    Strange day yesterday! I put Aurier in for Zouma, who then got -1

    Had Vardy as captain too.

    I think this was the way to do it.
    If I'd not changed my team over Christmas I think I probably would have had twice the amount of points I actually got.

    Well luckily for me, I set de Bruyne as vice captain so that's kept me in 12th place!

    That is where planning helps - even so I only had one sub in reality as Lundstram and Greenwood were no shows.
    Got hammered in the fpl cup though the fecker Treble KDB ended up with 94.

    At least this week it eased the pain of benching TAA the previous week.
    But the injuries would have been a lot better for me then!

    Still got all of mine intact too. The new wildcard will help a few. It's still pretty tight at the top. Still plenty to play for.
    I got bumped out the cup in week 2, but this week KdB and TAA did some good things. Had Alli and Martial as captains when they both did ok.
    All in all been a solid christmas, time to push on in the New year!

    I only have used the first wildcard. So need to get jammy with the rest of the chips if I have any hope of making the top 3.

    If TAA and Mane does not start I am in the same boat.

    Vardy didn't play so Cantwell will bring 10 points for me off the bench. Need a big week from Mane and VVD to save me having a poor one.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Still got 100 points to catch up 1st place mind!

    According to the live fpl site

    https://fntsypl.com/live?league=282098#

    I am up to 6th ahead of ya, and you are in 8th

    My captain was TAA anyway - thought the clean sheet was locked on and he might repeat a little of the heroics he did a few gameweeks ago.
    I am only about 70 points behind dweatherston11 now - not sure how that has happened.

    I already made a -4 transfer by mistake I was messing around with my team and forgot I had two transfers ticked.
    My work out well though.
