I'm just sayin' (bragging).
Don't worry, didn't had him until 2-3 GW ago, and frankly, am not so sure if it was a move worth all the effort (and point deductions). I did better without him before. 13.5 or whatever he's worth now, I generally prefer a more balanced team instead (not saying I'm a bad manager here, though - competitors do notice every slight hint of weakness here at MR, although they all appear pretty neat and tidy....).

Pretty sure my Bale transaction will result in a hefty bag of hurt though.

Last week was tough, since I transferred Michu out for the Arsenal game and benched Defoe against Fulham. That's 29 stinkin' points I could have enjoyed there. *sigh*

But let's not think of what might have been, but rather of what actually is. As in the results from the last Gameweek in the MacRumors Cup.

Sporting Dual-Cores 43 - 43 Omaha Latics
Woodingtonhampshire 54 - 64 Neutron Heath
Horizon Heights 53 - 42 Pachyderm FC
Elisbury Hill 52 - 60 T!llionaire Toyshire
The Stoplights 52 - 52 Brainerd FC
Tall Saints 63 - 34 Pinstripe City
Argy-Bargy 45 - 56 Hardly Athletic
LITH United 52 - 62 Fizzy's Flyers
Mancunian Mopheads 59 - 63 Thigh High Socks

That leaves the table looking like this...

The next round of fixtures meanwhile sees us line up thus...

Hardly Athletic v Thigh High Socks
Pinstripe City v Mancunian Mopheads
Brainerd FC v LITH United
T!llionaire Toyshire v Argy-Bargy
Pachyderm FC v Tall Saints
Neutron Heath v The Stoplights
Omaha Latics v Elisbury Hill
Woodingtonhampshire v Horizon Heights

Are you sure that algorithm is working correctly Jaffa? Pachyderm should be ranked much more in the Southern Hemisphere....smells fishy imho!

And I tip my hat to the Tall Saints and Omaha Latics - they appear deadly efficient!

Algorithm? I think Manchester City are looking to sign him in January, aren't they?

Pachyderm FC have had a good run in the head-to-head fixtures, hence their slightly lofty current position in that table. But let's take a look at the main League table...

Which leads us on neatly to November's MacRumors Manager of the Month Award – and the gong goes to none other than Tilpots, whose Stoplights racked up an unmatched 276 points for the month.

So well done to both Tilpots and our current League leader Silencio.

Yes, well done indeed. And that wasn't really a thought provoking post by me either. Good run Pachyderm FC!

Thanks Jaffa! Sweet kit, as per usual. Glad Umbro still produces these and not those Swoosh fellas.

Bah, I am a silly Jaffa. I reposted the Cup table rather than the League one in my last post – here's the table I meant to put up...

Nike have been snaffling up Umbro contracts all over the place in the last six months or so, and they've been sniffing around the Cores hoping to get a slice of our lucrative replica trade. We're keeping them firmly at arm's length, rest assured.

Congrats! I did consider it, but was more like: 'Nah, that'd be pure madness!' Jaffa did it, too though.

"Pure madness" is right! RVP is the usual go to but he's had a lackluster few weeks. Sometimes you just get lucky...

Ok, Tilpots, that serves pretty well as a very good example of how to play Fantasy League.

Because, on the other hand, you could, just a generic example, bring in Mata for Hazard this morning, nice pretty morning with a good coffee in your hand and future shining bright in the clear blue sky, just to learn in return about Chelsea fixtures.






Dammit!

Never a rhyme or reason. As frustrating as it is, it's also part of the fun. When that gut feeling comes thru you feel like you know what you're talking about. Wish that happened more often!

Haha, you mean like this?



Sorry Jaffa, wrong thread, but I couldn't resist. And thx Tilpot for that next lesson for life. Second time already! And no I'm not serious, most of the time actually - that seems to get lost in translation.

Cheers - this game is lots o' fun!

Whoa.

In other news, how do Michu and Tevez receive no BPs this week??? Certainly they were among their respective games top performers.

My gut was fine until Friday, Michu down as captain, then I ate something that didn't agree and I began to over-analyse; Michu tends to only get one and Berba is due a goal fest - also at home to a dodgy Newcastle United, welcome captain Berbatov. Too much time in midfield because Ruiz is out - a joy to watch, but frustrating re Fantasy Land.

Bonus points:

Odd Yaya scores one, dives, is booked, doesn't finish the match, loses 2-3, and gets a bonus, whilst Michu gets zip for scoring two, not being booked, finishing the game, and also losing by one goal. Pablo Hernandez suffered a similar fate against WBA; played well and set up two, but no bonus. Time for a change to a 'Mark Your Own' system.

Cheers, and come on Sess! ,

I'm going to check who makes Michu Cappo next GW as well. As a fraidy-cat (lol) I won't.

At least Suarez is back in the mix - I predict some good stuff!

Once again, I have 21 points sitting on my bench! I need to start making some better decisions. However, not a bad week at all.

I agree, presenting Tilpots the red arrow is always a good sign. Now, going against the Tall Saints is a completely different story. Especially with my poor (early) transfer decisions. Could make the win epic, though.

Cazorla saved my butt! What a game he played. It was on ESPN's Watch Now App so I got to see most of it. It's only the second time I've watched hlm play. That offense runs thru him and he guides it well.
