We hear ya. I'm pretty sure every FPL Manager regrets at least one of his/her changes every single week. I thought to myself 'Hey! Santi Cazorla hasn't done much for a while, I think I'll transfer someone else in this week!'...

Yup. Just to let you guys know: I just transferred David Silver out, maybe a good time to snatch him...

I had the same thought, luckily I chose to replace him with two goal Michu. Phew!

I purposely didn't add Suarez this week, so for all who have him when he scores a hat trick in both games this week, you're welcome.

U didn't add Suarez? Fool! [C] him on purpose. Michu will score low compared. Hindsight.

Interesting gameweek. Jaffa, besides a bloody epic 90-100 , may I ask if the play-offs are one game per round or two?

Sorry, if it was mentioned before.

No problem – it's one game per round.

After the Gameweek 35 fixtures have been finished, the Cup goes into knock out mode. The top eight teams are drawn together and play in Gameweek 36. The four winners then play in Gameweek 37's semi-finals, and the two winners of those matches then play in the Cup Final in Gameweek 38.

The rest of us meanwhile spend these Gameweeks getting all misty eyed and nostalgic about the history and glorious tradition of the Cup.

There are no play-offs in the main League itself, our championship is a straightforward race to top the table by amassing the most points.

Thinking of giving pachyderm fc an eight point transfer hit head start; hoping me being more mouse than man is an advantage this week, though they will have their fancy boots.

Cheers,

That made me laugh. Thinking Jaffa, as an ambitious by-stander in the cup, ain't too pleased hearing about those -8 though...at least you can field 11 players, I assume? I'm going to park a bus in front of my goal. Doin' it Milan style. Jaffa, you have one turquese-pinkish kit for my clash against Omaha? I need Guthrie exploding and any other possible advantage.

Aren't elephants scared of mice? Should give you the edge in this fixture.

The seamstresses are hard at work and your kitman should have his hands on the gear in good time.

I gave up 8 pts for this week, but really feel I needed to make the changes. I still have my WC but I'm not ready to loose it just yet.

I can't stand these 2 week intervals of no games! Drives me nuts. Guess I just need to get into the other competitions as well.

Some chatter about Rooney travelling, so no hit. Cue pictures of him in a stand having a laugh. Also gambling Bale doesn't go mental.

Tilpots - some double games coming, wait for the fixtures then wildcard may be the way.

Cheers,
OW

I took hits almost every GW..'cause I like to hustle a lot and due lack of logic and hindsight
Gives me the impression of a comfotable TV but lack of position in the League as a result. Good TV / SV may be advantageous for the Cup though.

Toys ftw!

Not sure why I thought Walcott wasn't playing, but tears are drying slowly nevertheless due Rafael's showcase. Glad I own this team, otherwise I'd be fired!

Bale has a fit. Good reply to being sung 'He looks like a chimp'.

RVP and Lennon out, Bale +1 in.

Agreed! T1ll1ona1res dropping like a stone. But drew the right conclusions, hired & fired, and now Tall Saints are celebrating heavily already, since I will cool down and take care of the Neutron Heath. I'm still the best manager since Mancini!
