    Question -

    My strikers are Drogba and Nistelrooy, with Kanu on the bench

    Now, Nistelrooy ain't playing today, so after today's games, will I get the 5 points Kanu scored as an "automatic substitution" ?

    Well, today I got Campbell, Lehmann, Terry, Lampard and Drogba playing. (Nistelrooy and Ronaldo aren't playing, but I got them too)

    Can't see Campbell and Lehmann conceding, so points there. Campbell to score a header from a corner, so 6 points there. Drogba to score, set up by Lampard, and Lampard to score twice, so loads of points, and Terry won't concede, so I should wipe the floor with the whole lot of you :D

    EDIT: And how did Kanu get 5 points?

    Despite a 17 point haul from today's games I have managed to slip down one place to last but one.

    Its still early days, a lot of my bigger names need time to get full match fitness, the weather conditions didn't suit us and the point difference between the teams above us isn't enough to get me worried just yet.

    EDIT: The Board of Directors for Welshguy Rovers have given a full vote of confidence to Mr Welshguy. We believe that he is the right manager to take us forward in this championship and provide us with the stability and know how to make us genuine chapionship challenger.

    Uh-oh!

    Hmm, not bad. I'm still bottom, but at least there's only 7 points seperating the bottom half. Just wait til Nistelrooy and Ronaldo are back LOL!

    It would seem all of my 'big guns' have failed me today, only gaining 2's and 4's. Still wondering about my decision to put Smithy in up front.

    It costs points to buy and sell (I think)

    I'm still happy with my team for the moment

    I think its only fair to give my team a few matches to bed in before I start chopping and changing.

    I'm confident my players will repay my faith.

    They'd better, or its Oldham Athletic next stop for the lot of them!

    You can make one transfer free of charge, every other will deduct 4 points. It seems you made 5 transfers, so I'm afraid that you'll have to say goodbye to 16 points. I think the change will be visible when new Gameweek starts.

    Btw, not sure if people know this, but you can make all kinds of formations. So, if you're thinking that defensive players you have will have a tough weekend ahead, leave just two there, put rest in midfield and attack.

    Anc captaincy, doubles the points of player that have it.

    I'm sticking with my formation and squad for at least another week (or until Svensson is fit again).

    Lets see how they do two games in a row. Then I'll start to panic - if need be.

    Early days yet.

    8th ain't bad.....

    Here are the rules on transfers:
    Transfers
    After selecting your squad you can still deal in the transfer market. Unlimited squad transfers can be made, 1 transfer can be made between each gameweek deadline without charge. All additional transfers made in the same gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total at the next deadline. Free transfers are not carried over from week to week.

    All transfers before the season starts are made at no cost.

    Player prices vary during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player values will not change until the season starts.

    If you sell a player for a higher price than you paid, then a sell-on fee of 50% (rounded up to the nearest 0.1 million) will be applied on the profits. For example, if you buy a player for 4.2 million and when you transfer him his value is 4.5 million then you will only receive 4.3 million.

    Before Gameweek, just put players you want in, and the site will automatically change the formation.
