Hmm... 80 + 15 (Pellè VC) + 4 (Wisdom coming off the bench) leaves me in a "nervous 99" position. I'd expect Falcao to get a run-out later too. This is my fifth season playing and I've never had a ton before (except in a DGW when they're ten a penny) so fingers crossed. But I'm so knackered after today I'm going to bed at halftime as I have an early start in the morning.
Maybe this is the GW where all my planets and stars align?
But, I'm philosophical about it. What will be, will be.
101 points, well done!
It's been a long time coming. The 'nervous nineties' that exist in cricket, also exist in FPL. I've been there so many times during a SGW... and then it all goes horribly wrong. The big difference of course, is that I have no control over it, hence my philosophical approach. Lady Luck is a fickle mistress...
I've got rid of falcao for pelle. I'll stick with Costa, I think he'd actually been rested for the next game...
That's a good move Cat. LVG appears to prefer RVP over Falcao and MUN aren't firing at all. SOT have some great fixtures coming up until GW13 and Pellè would have had a hattrick on Saturday, before Bridcutt got his legs all tangled up.
Elsewhere, I've also sold Falcao for Agüero. But then I've...
Well well. The Industrial Groove Machine recover from the home defeat in GW7 to an emphatic victory this week. But the going's getting good with some seriously high scoring teams & lots of movement in the table. So here's a round up of where we currently stand...
GW1: The Sisters 411 – 478 The Cure GW2: The Cure 474 – 488 The Sisters GW3: The Sisters 464 - 403 The Cure GW4: The Cure 536 – 577 The Sisters GW5: The Sisters 392 – 370 The Cure GW6: The Cure 456 – 446 The Sisters GW7: The Sisters 538 – 556 The Cure GW8: The Cure 491 - 645 The Sisters
GW8 Differential: +154 The Sisters
Overall Differential: +276 The Sisters
It looks like Johnny Rev 7.0 has run off with the lot this week. His FC Bennweg-Zeis1921 has not only taken the yellow jersey , but he also gets the Big Shout Out for his 101 points. The league's first century of the season.
So I just need to close the game week by saying thanks again to everyone who played, chatted & exchanged pastry tips
All the best for the midweek Champion's League matches & see you all over at MyHeartland for Game Week 9.
