Is there going to be one?
Leagues can be set up now, but I don’t want to step on anyone’s trotters.

Who usually administers?

I think this is the code for the C&B league.

You've got until 19:00(GMT) on Friday 9th. The football that starts this weekend is just for the poor people clubs.

Any tips? There seem to be a few players listed out of position although no stand-out bargains. Also, Chelsea don't have a player worth more than 7m.

Keep it tight at the back and get as much penetration as you can afford... oh, you meant tips for the fantasy league?!


I'm struggling with my midfield this year. I put De Bruyne in (as I reckon he'll be running the league this year) but that's left me only able to afford 4 cloggers to play alongside him.

Gonna give Harold Kane a chance too. For a couple of weeks anyway. If Spurs sell Erickson without a replacement he's frigged.

Also, I want at one of Robertson or Alexander-Arnold but can't decide which.

De Bruyne is gonna be injured a lot. Think Sterling is gonna have a stormer again sadly. Liverpool full backs. Jamie Vardy. Cheers.

Gone for no more than one player per club.
Then remembered that they're the rules for a different site.
Can't be arsed to change it now.

Still, I think I'm in with a shout of winning 'Worst Kit'.

Not sure whether to go for Aguero this year. Also tempted to give Salah a miss. That's two players who you'd generally need if you wanted a decent placing.

Yeah I baulked at first but Aguero has been dynamite for about 4 years on the bounce now so he's a must.
Same with Salah, two immense seasons, he can easy go again I reckon.

Problem is, you take Salah, Aguero and Mane that's 35 million gone already.

Other than Robertson and Milivojevic, I doubt the rest of my team will pick up points at all.

Who's gonna be your replacement when he's in 99% of teams though? plus he squeezes in as a midfielder leaving the forward berths open

Milivojevich was 7m this time. I picked him up for a sneaky 6m last season but 7 is a lot for someone who isn’t that productive.

Re: Salah and Aguero - I got them in because the shit-munchers will have them and when they get points I’ll be left in the dust.

I may be misremembering but he seemed to score a penalty every week and get me at least 5 points.

Only after I’d given him the nod, last 2 months of the season

How much is Aguero going to play though? I'm not sure if the charity shield is anything to base signings on but he's going to be rotated a lot more this season, isn't he? If it's him vs Kane and Salah vs Sterling...

Old “Spuds” Kane won’t get many (16 on the season) so not worth the $12m, Spurs to drop to 6th/7th and not look too impressive. Poch booted by Christmas. Bookmark it.

Trying to see if any of the last 2 days' transfers affect my choices much. Tempted by Wellbeck although will probably wait. Also thinking about changing my game and focussing more on defenders. The top 3 last year scored more than the top 3 strikers so may not scrimp as much as I normally do. Luiz going to Arsenal means that Chelsea should be playing Zouma a little more, so he could be a bargain.

Looking forward to beginning with loads of enthusiasm, doing my normal thing of choosing ex-Celtic players (Pukki, Tierney) and then giving up completely halfway through the season. Love this game.

The difference between a bargain bucket fullback and an elite one is like... 2m? 4.5m-6.5m or so. A 4.5m defender won’t get you much, but an elite wingback will get you a shedload or points.

It’s difficult to get a similar number of points from strikers without spending 10m+ which is why I always buy an elite keeper and back 5, 2 or 3 quality midfielders, and cheap out everywhere else. Last season I also had both Bournemouth strikers so I ended up lucking out there as well but you’re better off taking a chance on strikers and going with proven fullbacks/midfielders. In my opinion anyway.... take it for what it is worth

I promised myself no FPL this year on account of the fact that every single year I put time into it in the first half of the season and do well then in the second just have an enormous tantrum and destroy my team. Here I am again though!

This year I'm going to do it all differently. I'm embracing the tantrum, looking forwards to it. I'm going to spend weeks and weeks researching the optimum time to have my tantrum for maximum failure

Ederson in for Alisson, going to have a tinker with my midfield as well.
