    Great to see you back in the League Nuc! I was hoping you'd join us again.

    I've remembered why Fantasy League can be soooo frustrating at times. Shaw spent pre-season in a revolving door to my team 's defence. Was dithering right up until the deadline, when I plumped for 'out'. Noooo! Ha ha

    I see Swotty Sam has started the first day back at top of the class and he's already vying to be Miss Rosie's pet by showing off his bench boost tactics.

    Winesis - there's method in my madness... I thought it was really difficult to make a team I would want all season after the world cup and players being rested. I also HATE that chip... every time I plan it and save it for a double game week my STAR players are rested and I end up with about 10 extra points - so I thought I'd use it now combined with am early wild card probably.

    Gutted I had Richalison in and out of my team over the last week. Same with Neves (who looks utterly brilliant).

    Anyway, the best team on paper looks like the one with the worst name. *cough cough bongo

    It's going to be emotional

    I've took a 4 point hit already. Bottom of the league already but I think today's games might change that 😉🎉

    Oooh I'm not as daft as I look then - though admittedly I do look very very daft as I had correctly guessed the reason for your early bench boost. Good plan.

    I was dithering between just going all out for a squad that would take account of potentially missing World Cup players for the first couple of weeks (that so far don't really seem to be missing) and then wild carding, and trying to be more strategic for once and trying to sell interim players in a couple of moves to minimise hits. I ended up with a mix of both as I couldn't make my mind up ha ha.

    Homework??? I don't have a job. I look after the kids in the day. 1 of them still has naps. This is my fantasy football geek time.

    Enjoy looking up at Icardi & Koke FC all season Bongo.

    Winnie... it begins again! Get your own points total!

    I've just experienced a full year now being a dad. Yeah the sleep times are great. Get your phone out and escape into the world of Bigfoot, villa, fantasy league, YouTube if it on quiet.

    Wild card done! seems a bit early but I doubt if I could afford them by the time the prices go up. Got some better cheep subs now too.

    So our 17 managers started the the season full of hopes and dreams of bringing football ⚽️ home, but for most it will end in tears. 😢

    Half of our teams where not in action on Friday night their managers joining Southgate and Martinez in the stands at Old Trafford on a scouting mission and naturally obligatory prawn 🍤 sandwiches.


    Anyway down to business.


    CAPTAIN WATCH

    Stats taken from the Fantasy League. Salah the most picked player and also the most picked captain with DeGea most picked vice captain.

    I suspect you know where this is going. 😉 Salah was in 12 of our teams and given the armband in 9 of them making him the top choice, and magic 💥Mo💥didn’t let us down earning 16 sumptuous points for his ecstatic managers.

    Joint runners up with 10 points Yubby’s Firmino 👏👏👏and our newcomer Liam with Zaha.👏👏👏 Well played guys.


    3 managers did indeed pick DeGea as their vice captain.


    MANAGER OF THE WEEK AWARD 🏆

    Joint winners this week with a stunning 74 points Uncle Tony with Mr Tee 👍 and his nephew Sam with Large Icardie and Koke 👍 Well played.


    TOP 6

    After one game :-

    1. Large Icardi & Koke - Mr Tee

    3. Agbonlahar United

    4. 8 Daughters FC - Cubist Masterpiece

    6. Winnie’s Warriors




    Propping up the table although I am sure not for long with their fantasy league pedigree.


    15. Aston Lilla

    16. Grealish is a Legend

    17. Kirkley Krusaders


    MARE OF THE WEEK

    🐴 Jesh and Kirkley Krusaders 🐴 An unusually bad start to the season for Jesh and his team.


    Our first token played already Sam with his Bench Boost.

    Crystal Palace’s Wan-Bissaka was on 6 teams bench and I believe only Sam took advantage of his 12 points.

    I was going to ask who would be the first to play their Wildcard? However Bongo has already announced he has for gameweek 2 which is amazing as he finished 3rd this week, will anyone else take the early Wildcard plunge.

    Just wanted to say a big well done to Liam on his Fantasy League debut scoring the same points as Dad Oz 49 🤪

    The World Cup players may be back in their teams for next week.

    Off to a flying write up start Rosie! Thank you.

    Well done Sam and Uncle Tony! Over 20 bench boost points Jose - the weasel cunning plan worked! Only 6 points behind you though so within nemesis distance already!

    Glosses over fact that Yubby got off to a better start than me

    A big well done to Liam on his debut! He already has me worried and I'm sure his Dad will be sweating buckets as he burns the midnight candle agonising over Ozstan Villa!

    Sam, your Pep comment made me laugh!

    2017 was but a mere blip in the history of my mighty Warriors bro. Oh and being relegated one year too.

    Get used to it? Never!

    Heads off to open an extra large tub of comfort chocolate ice cream and have a little sulk.

    Thanks for the great write up Rosie. Lots of tweaking of teams this week no doubt.

    Thanks Rosie as always! The only thing me and my uncle discussed was having Salah as captain. Which you kind of feel obliged to do given his price. My team consisted of Mané and Richalison too until.until . the 11th hour where I changed it. It's going to be a tight campaign. But only the special one can expect to be top so early on and not feel the pressure to.stay there for 37 weeks.

    You will be lucky to stay there one week more Sam. I'm breathing down your neck and the pressure will get too you.
    I see yubbys gone for his usual all out defence that seems to work somehow?
