and Zouma fails to score a sitter of a header to start off the weekend. Ziyech not in the points either and Harry drifts offside for Spurs.

... AND picked up a yellow. But RV are back in fifth and hope to progress further from today's games.

I always forget who's teams are who's but right now it's TACTICSTRUCK we need to knock off the top.

Apparently the lunchtime kick off today Fulham v Everton is on BBC Sport which I assume means the APP - thankfully I have that.

Salah has tested negative now for Covid so will be defo be back next week, however gonna transfer out PA for KDB as City have Burnley and Fulham next two games, then bring back Salah for the Fulham fixture.

Will backfire like everything does with this team.

TACTICSTRUCK is @SHATNERSTACTIC . He's only made 2 posts in this thread :( , but luckily one of them was stating what his team name is. :D

That's the one, thanks.

He's had a lot of luck so far but I remember messaging with him before, he's a really nice sort. As you all are.

But while he will be caught by one of us, at least this is more exciting than.last year where after February it was just a two horse race.

I was hoping to leapfrog you as well but if Burnley keep a clean sheet tomorrow that's going to be a bridge too far this time.

Gonna be very hard to catch him. He's doing excellent.

No problem. He just WC'd and actually, it ain't that hawt.

Nightmare to have a squad like that, fixture wise.

This weekend for example, Cancelo (Burnley H), Bellerin (Wolves H), Robertson (Brighton A), Coufal (Villa H), Chilwell (Spurs A) who you gonna leave out?

Coufal but then if you play four at the back and want to play Grealish you can only play one choice striker out of your three.

Glad I didn't have those problems.

After a fortnight's break this time it's a quick turnaround for Gameweek 10. Yes, Gameweek 10, such a long, long way to go.

Team-sheets have to be in by 18.30pm Friday before Crystal Palace take on Newcastle United.

Good call @YNWA1892 binning Auba before the price drop.

And I think @richp007 must have given up playing.

It has allowed @Woodywizz to move off the bottom!

Why did you have to remind him?!?!

I’ve binned Vardy after this GW, and brought in Kane. So - see a massive downturn in form from now for Harry.

For that one game it could be a winner.

But after that when his hip goes again, you get stuck, main reason I never include him.

I'm thinking there next 3 games, Fulham, Sheff Utd, Brighton.

After that the next wildcard won't be far off so can plan again.

Plus I didn't like Lampards comments about Abraham and Giroud being his central strikers, so when Pulisic comes back I think Werner might be rotated bit more, otherwise would keep Werner as apart from Spurs there fixtures are pretty good too.

I like the idea even more now given the fixtures I wasn't aware of.

Actually, Abraham interests me more as a third striker. I already have Bamford and would take Werner but only for DCL, not for Kane.

DCL, Bamford, Kane is probably the best line up for fwds with the prices of DCL and Bamford.

When you're behind by a bit, like I am here, gotta take some risks too, players a lot of other teams don't have. Might backfire but better then getting similiar/worse scores and going nowhere.

Quite few teams have quite few similiar players in the league, so if you're behind by a bit gotta try something different.

I will probably do that with my next wildcard

So far to go yet, you could be 100 points off right now, means nothing.

What I like about this season, least so far, is it's all very close.

Being different is important, I look at the ownership when thinking of purchasing a player and of course, long term strategy with the fixtures.

I think the Kane, DCL, Bamford front three, which I have, sadly must be the most common!

Just gotta hope not having Salah for next two game weeks at least doesn't bite me, and that KDB does the business at least.
