    Took me a day to snap and use my wildcard.
    I'm keeping Torres and Hazard and binning the Reading guys. Swapping Silva for Pienaar gives me the money to swap Tevez in for Naismith, which seems like a great deal at least until little Aguero isn't broken any more.

    Think I'll use my wildcard too once all the transfers are sorted this week :)

    Yeah, I was gonna use mine and then I thought no sense in doing so until the transfer window SLAMS SHUT.

    I believe the Wildcard lasts for the week, so even if you use it you can redo it before Friday... right?

    This week you could even have brought in Hazard, made 0.2m, then sold him and banked the 0.1m profit.

    that's quite the forward line, Flightrisker. You could do some damage with that.

    At least you remembered to enter! Total lack of organisation means I won't be defending my title.

    Having Hazard as captain from day 1 was a masterstroke. Forgetting to make transfers was not, also not helped by the Reading game being called off. Just had 11 players play this week with all three subs required, but have already had to spend 8 points on transfers for week 3 to ensure I can play a full team (Aguero out, 3 Chelsea and 2 Reading players in the squad and neither side playing, so 6 players who definitely won't feature). Though I'm now playing the risky game of having three players on the bench I know definitely won't play. Well happy to be 5th in the league, even if it is only after two weeks.

    I made an extra transfer to have a playing player on the bench. A little extravagant but I do not care to much about points for the first few months. For me this time period is to earn cash for later in the season.

    I generally make 3 changes every week.

    I don't want to use my wildcard yet so this week I'm going to have to go with a 5-4-1 formation and hope that none of the subs are needed as they are all Chelsea players and Pogrebnyak.

    Just when I get Green as my GK QPR decides to buy another keeper. Think I'll have to use that wildcard friday night.

    Berbatov to Fulham.

    Worth a punt? Until falling out of favour at Man United last season he'd always been a prolific point earner and at Fulham I expect him to start banging in the goals again. Just £6.9 mill aswell.

    Already picked him up, wildcard is reaping some deadline day bargains

    Waiting to see how much Sahin is valued for at Liverpool

    5-4-1 is a stupid formation for this game so unfortunately I've had to play my wildcard. The squad barring any injuries is :-

    Begovic

    Coloccini - Chico - Hangeland

    Michu - Pienaar - Yaya Toure - Fellaini

    Van Persie - Tevez - Ba

    Subs - Ruddy - Hazard - Demel - McCartney.

    I played my wildcard, and ended up with 5-4-1 because Berbatov's transfer came through too late to take effect in this week's team. He's on the bench today anyway though, so I guess it doesn't make a difference.

    Vorm

    Rangel - Kompany - Baines - Shawcross

    Sterling - Michu - Kagawa - Pienaar

    Berbatov - Tevez (C)


    Since it doesn't look like Berbatov will count, or play even if he does, that means I'll be swapping in 4 million man Demel of West Ham - who's on for 6 points at the moment, after about ten minutes of clean sheet. Optimistic? Me?


    Next week I get to play Hazard again, and field a front three of Torrez, Tevez, and Berbatov. Been a pretty decent transfer wildcard window for me.

    Or maybe I misunderstood their post about deadline day, since Berbatov appears to be playing now. I'll get a point from him and lose 5 from my West Ham sub who I won't get to sub. Bah.

    :( My account has been referred to the database & admin team, and my attempt to make a secondary team has also failed (confirmation email lost). I am sad. Haven't been able to make any changes since wk 1, leaving a painful amount of Chelsea players in my side in reflection of their double game week. Insult to injury. Can't even watch my own fail. Oh well.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Bought in Maloney as a cheap player last night and he scored. Great player for the price imo, this week will be poor for me though with Chelsea players on the bench

    I also bought him in. The goal was a nice surprise. Already sold him though due to the next fixture.

    Are you playing my Tiny Heroes in the H2H by any chance?
    I'm rather hoping Van Persie has a quiet one.

    Tevez as captain is pretty much the only thing I got right this week. Saved me completely. Hopefully will get over 60 points by the time everyone has played. Always take that.

    -4 for subs, two Chelsea, one Reading and two injured (so in total down two players). Finished with 55. Thank you Arsenal and Tevez. Saved me.
