i'm floundering - cant seem to get a consistent run out of any of my teams....

one of my elite teams with loads of transfers could end up being my best this year - but it aint gonna threaten leaderboard

The way things are going, I'd be happy with a top 100 finish, too many already in the top 100 in better shape and more options to cover with more than one team flying high.

Probably going to go shit or bust if the current trend continues but will see what Feb brings before changing my current plan

Think its difficult to have many if any differentials at the moment..

Even took a few Kane's out last week, on my fringe teams and they lost to Swansea without scoring and lost to West Brom abelt scoring twice... sorry to any Liverpool fans for cursing them... Need five against Huddersfield now...

Down to about 3 teams that have a chance of top 50, including one of my Chairmen league teams which hopefully can finish top 3 in the league... Feb 2nd will mark a whole month in that team without a transfer, bloody amazing for me.. Team is showing 179th in overall league, don't think it's gone down in that time either, may have even gone up a few places..

Struggling to see any transfers at the moment so sitting tight, hopefully for another month...

Cup draw has been kind to those low on transfers, Big guns should all progress to last eight.

Had to do the same Rinky and gamble without Kane. Who cares about top 100. Shit or bust. 99/100 without Kane is sadly going to fail tho :lol:

1540 with 13 trf left and Alonso to play tonight..

3 trf planned this month, baring injuries.

Will leave 10 going into March. Not used to having this many trf left at this stage of the season...

1490 with 18 transfers and Alonso to play tonight,think I'm usually down to about 5 transfers by now. Haven't got any transfers planned yet but thinking of switching my defence at some point.

rinky flying
King Monkey also up there

Wino and Stegg look the dangers - especially if wino has kept transfer count intact

Moving in the right direction at the moment Yorkie. As you say wino and stegg have a few different options given the number of teams they have up there.

Think I'm about 6 trfs shy of making a serious challenge... Have learnt from last year, but must hold onto transfers better...
9 trf left in my only realistic team with a chance of a top 20 finish..
4 trf planned for March leaving 5 left...

Team will be going slightly left field so a little bit of a chance to improve or may go bust...

Just realised this time last year I was riding high in sixth place with 1481 points, would put me in 30,000th this season. It's been a bonkers one so far a crazy amount of attacking points.

1709 - 14 my best. Should have a decent chance of a top 100 finish but to far back to challenge the leaders I think,unless if I go for a Huddersfield block and they don't concede for the rest of the season.

King monkey flying the flag.

Wino looking dangerous.

Rinky for the late charge

Yorkie with a season to forget (but chance in starting 11)

It's been a Twat of a season, but at the end of the day probably just 2 or 3 duff moves have keep me out of staying in the top 100 for any length of time. In terms of contending I probably screwed that up by not having Salah from the start and not loading up on Man City in time :albino:
