    I have noticed the trading option for buying an extra one, and agree that a feature like that in SC would be great.
    Especailly for those of us with teams that are no longer tenderable due to injuries and resting befire finals.

    I love that trading system as it gives you scope for high risk / reward or the safe option and not spending points already in the bag. For sc though I think they should go back to a Friday lockout next year with no subs (looks likely) and take the trades back to 25 or 20 like before which will place more emphasis on research prior to round one and some of the obscene scores that get around. With epl I traded 24 pts in some weeks because I could just like using 30 trades in sc faster than the old days because they are there. If I compare those 20 t to 30 t years my results were always better because of the value needed from less trades. Anyway just digressing as go gabba gabba and chugginton not exactly riveting pre 7 am Saturday morning entertainment.

    Hey doddy just watched the chelsea game and their new boy Pedro. Definitely in my team for next week. Was awesome scored and an assist and set up three that should of been goals but we're missed. He is very good, no wonder the buyout clause for him at Barcelona was 150 million euros!

    I've finally getting a team that looks half decent, i'm actually enjoying the format more than i thought i would.
    I also like the scout section for a run down on games and players.

    I managed 69 points this week which feels decent. Certainly helped along by Wilson's 17 for Bournemouth, took him as he was cheap enough and I figured he'd be their number one striker. Stoked to see bag a hat trick so early on in the season.

    Rooney has been dry early, Man U desperately need a striker.

    75 for COB this week, that's a big score early on.

    I needed to make a couple of much needed trades, so took a negative hit, but hoping this early move will help in the long run.
    Good scoring lads and sure to see us all score a little more consistently as we settle in and get used to it.

    My finger is a little itchy but I can't see any super obvious moves. Don't mind Gomis from Swansea up forward for 7.2 but he might struggle against Man-U this week, draw opens up again after that though.

    Tempted to bring Kolarov into my backline as well, only 5.7 and just knocked out another big score. Man City players are flogging it

    well that was a pretty poor round, only 44 points just does not cut the mustard

    Very tough indeed, it was funnily enough above average! lol
    I had a player on field that didn't even play so that was handy, don't know why couldn't find anything out about it.
    Some very poor scores from some of the better players all round.

    My luck has continued into the FPL, with 3 players sitting on my bench injured. 2 are a maybe, but one is a definite out for at least 1. In a format i'm still getting my head around this is just what i need.

    A better round for my team, however have picked up a couple of injuries which will force more changes to my squad. Pretty happy with my current level of scoring, averaging just over 50 points a round, and given currently ranked in the top 50k out of just shy of 3.5 mil, the season is shping quite nicely.

    Yeah it's insane the amount of people in it, it puts the 300k in SC look like a joke.

    I'm so into this fantasy. Makes it so much more enjoyable having a small squad and the option of buying extra trades.

    Brought in Martial and Payet, a 5 and 8 from both isn't bad at all.

    Ag├╝ero is killing me but I only got him a couple of weeks back so will likely hold. Surely he kicks one soon?

    I'm really struggling, not only am i carrying injuries but i offloaded Kane last week only for him to finally hit the net this week.

    But yeah i really like the idea of buying an extra trade or two, gives an extra dimension too the whole risk=reward.

    Some great scores this week lads, especially Van Popsie with a sensational 86, top work. COB and Wookies with 57 and 54 respectively well done guys.

    Was certainly helped along by Aguero!

    Who now looks set to miss 8 weeks with a string, I've got a few injuries to deal with and a couple of duds so i'll be using my wildcard.

    I used my Captain Wild last week which netted me a whole 18 point. My luck this year in all forms is well, i dont have a polite word for it at this moment in time.

    I am enjoying it though something a little different, different strategies required and thought proccesses.
