The "can't play because I didn't bring my wooly gloves" injuries will be kicking in soon along with the unnecessary sendings off - you know, the ones where the player clearly wants to miss three games so they can spend Christmas/New Year down the boozer.
Aargh, I had the worst weekend ever, noone scored anything like a decent total and I'm out of the cup against a really low ranked guy by about 2 points. Boo! Think I will end up with about 27 this week, lol! Still, now I can focus on the league, as they say...
Not a bad week for me, 49 points. Up to the dizzy heights of.......
I think I finally overtook the people who aren't making any transfers. I thought I was making really good progress too (up from 30th to 11th) but I'm still exactly 100 points behind the leader who's just gone through 1000 points!
(I think you're 22nd although you got more points on your bench than some people managed in their whole team! :P)
Always the same with my subs - if I had switched Evra for Craddock and Bowyer for Duff I would have got an extra 14 points. But I thought, "Man Utd won't concede too many against Fulham" and "Bowyer is in the form of his life" - why would I swap!
Anyone know what happens when half the games are postponed due to weather....i presume it`s tuff luck if you can`t field a full team??
Games will just be added to a future game week right?
In recent weeks when games have been cancelled it has just been tough luck. Got caught out twice with captains not playing the twice they were meant to do or my new transfer not playing.

Yeah I guess it will be the same which means I have eight players max....and even less if Spurs game gets cancelled, which I think is just a matter of time.
Not so bad if ur captain doesn`t play as another gets appointed automatically either based on value or form...depending how you have it set up. Obviously means one of ur best players is out though.
Think I may have to take the four points per man loss and make some changes.
Spurs is already off.
Captain will always be your most valuable or in-form player that actually gets onto the pitch. If you have less than 11 players that get a game then it is "tuff"
Its anybodies guess which games will actually get going this weekend. Or next for that matter!
Postponements already are:
Liverpool v Tottenham
Fulham v Portsmouth
Burnley v Stoke
Sunderland v Bolton
*** UPDATE 9/1, 10:30 ***
Also postponed are:
Hull v Chelsea
Wigan v Aston Villa
*** UPDATE 9/1, 12:45 ***
West Ham v Wolves off too now!
