****RBMB fantasy football official discussion topic***

Post by Red614 on Sun Aug 19, 2012 8:18 am

I'll start. What a horrible start to my season, at both levels. At championship level Rhodes was injured, Bellamy was shut out, Phillips didn't play, Gerrard got booked, Whitts was disappointing, I could go on and on. Very similar with my premiership team, albeit slightly better. Giroud looked impressive but failed to score, I backed Cisse but Ba scored, Ruddy had a rough time in goal. My only saviours were Gervhino played real well and considering Liverpools mare, I heard Allen played quite well.

Still, only the first game!

Don't think I've had a great week in the Championship either. When do they update the tables?

I had a shocker - though a couple of hours before kick off, I swapped Gerrard fir Hudson!

Does anyone know who's 'assist' it was?

The BBC write-up gave it to Gunnarrson. I'm not sure if a failed flying volley that happened to land in front of Hudson can REALLY count as an assist, but whatever

So, complete renovation of my premier league team. Decided that Cisse might not be so lucky this year and was overpriced, likewise with Holt. Replaced the pair with Lukaku, who after watching Albion I reckon will be a machine this season, and Defoe, who as Spur's only forward should score plenty. My final change was dumping Carrick, who I have no idea why I picked, for, gulp, a Swansea player. Michu is phenomenal, and a steal for his price. If Carrick now scores a hat trick, I might cry.

I also think hell might freeze over if that happens

Why didn't you leave carrick in your team until after united have played their game? Seems a bit silly to take him out before their game!

Not going to lie, but of a mate on my behalf Carrick. I hadn't watched MOTD yet, checked today's matches and didn't see them so assumed they had played a boring game out yesterday. In hindsight I should of looked properly, but I went in to get rid of Holt and Cisse and Carrick came as an after thought. But at worst it's going to cost me an appearance point, I very much doubt anymore. With any luck he won't even appear, then I'm laughing.

That's the question - how long do you think we/you should stick to your current team? I'm getting twitchy!

Yeah me too.

As much as I would hate to say it, Bellamy may not earn as many points as I would have hoped. He is in danger of being dropped. I'll give him a few more days but I just think he is going to be shut out all season.

Aha! Mare avoided. Turns out my transfers will only be active from week 2, so I will still retain any points Carrick earns! Phew. Even better, I named Ashley Cole my captain and he earned a heap of points, so I'm laughing. All the way up to 4th. From dead last. Out of 6.

In other news, what the hell is wrong with the championship version? Week 2 starts tomorrow and its still yet to award any points.

Points have been updated on the Championship Fantasy Football. Taylor and Chester got me points for clean sheets... Gardner and Speroni lost me points. Therefore I think I'm joint bottom.

The point system on the Championship one is poor. Should get at least a point for an appearance, surely. I have no idea which of my players even played - Is Gael Givet even still at Blackburn??
