    The new season is almost upon us. I've renewed the main league so I think whoever was in it last season will automatically be added as soon as they log in for the first time and submit a team. I see @georgie and @Trem have already been added.

    I don't think there are any changes to chips or rules.

    No more than three players from one team?

    It means I have to think/care rather than pop something in and walk away :(

    OK. Double annoying- I've entered my squad, twice, won't let me save it. No errors :(

    Reminds me of why I don't bother with this much.

    Are you within budget?

    For the moment, just stick any old team in to get it into the league. No point setting a proper squad up just yet because of transfers.

    I see a lot more playing time in the near future for Jesus.

    Why would he have a problem with it?

    De Gea's conceded 2, I dropped Mooy, Sané (my captain) has so far achieved a yellow card, Jesus is on the bench...

    Ok feeling slightly better about my captain now.

    What a quandary this is re: Kane and triple captain.

    I gambled on it. Unlikely to be a better chance.

    My thoughts exactly. The form he's in against two teams at the wrong end of the table. He has (or has had) a cold, apparently it's going to be a late call as to whether he starts vs Swansea but if he's fit I can't see him not getting a decent haul of points. Famous last words.

    Ffs, Harry won't even get the assist because Dele's first shot was blocked.

    So we are prepared for FAILURE this week :(

    Thankfully I completely missed the deadline, had planned on blowing my triple captain on Kane, didn't even get around to making him captain, let alone triggering it.

    Only four matches and I've had my highest points total of the season, I reckon. Thanks, Captain Salah.

    Kane's been awarded the second goal vs Stoke but, because they're a bunch of lazy bastards, the Fantasy Football people aren't going to update the scores to reflect it.

    @Vae ... Great end to the season James ... another nail-biter in prospect. Not sure it does anything for my blood pressure though!

    I think the odds favour you as you still have 2 chips to play but your subs bench is weak. It's certainly all to play for! One bad captain choice...

    Ffs. I had Milivojevic on my bench a couple of weeks ago when he scored 9 points and I have Zaha on my bench today and he's got 11 so far. I'm really bad at picking Palace players (although Van Aanholt just scored, which is nice).

    I'd say you made one this week but Kane hasn't exactly been a reliable points-winner since he came back from injury.

    Seems so. I thought Salah was the safer bet vs Stoke. So now pinning my hopes on a Kane 2 pointer... Strange to be hoping for a poor performance from one of my players!

    I sold Sané in order to bring Salah in so I can pretty much guarantee that he'll do well tomorrow. I bought Salah and then panicked a bit after the deadline because I was sure he would be rested. Turns out he might as well have been.

    Bloody 14 point week for Zaha. :(

    Ah so it’s your fault that Salah stopped scoring!

    Be thankful I didn't captain him otherwise he would've probably picked up a yellow card or missed a penalty or something. :)

    Forgot about the match tonight. Bollocks.
