    I have Pogba and Maguire so hopefully an assist from Pogba and a clean sheet will materialize

    Pogba won and missed a penalty 1 - 1 as Neves had equalized, dam!

    Made two free transfers and other than Perez I am happy with my squad, and managed to have 2.3M in the bank which will be helpful moving forward when rotating premium asset transfers depending on fixtures

    Still debating on my own moves. I could see enough potential transfers to make it tempting to play the wildcard, but I will have to think about it.

    I wanted to bring Martial in though Greenwood is blocking that move as it will take a 8 point hit as I will have to remove Greenwood. I got Pukki in before any further increase in price. Holding off on Wildcard for now as majority of my squad I want to keep

    I could swap Martial for Pogba though next game at home to Palace Pogba is likely to get points

    A bit early Torg,I think we need to let the players get up to speed first,only been 2 games.

    I said something similar last season (my debut fpl season) about Liverpool players, that did not last long

    It is, but I see quite a few potential fires to put out. A lot will depend on the press conferences. If any of my players are out, I might wildcard.

    Ideally you should hold on to the wildcard as long as possible, as you won't get another until January.

    Congratulations to George’sRetroRockets for topping this League in GW1.

    Thanks, buddy. Amazed I'm still second after GW2 - given I keep forgetting to make Sterling captain. ;)

    At least you have Sterling in your squad, though De Bruyne is proving to be a decent alternative currently

    Did a few early moves this week, and haven't spend much time on my team either. I'm still considering the wildcard, but it's almost getting a bit late in the week to play it.

    I am simply because as good as my team is not having Sterling and Martial is a concern

    No United coverage worries me; they're highly owned in the game, and any good result for United might mean a red arrow. As my teams looks now, I'll have to play the wildcard in order to bring any of them in.

    Both City and United have decent fixtures, I really wish I did not bring in Greenwood as I maybe forced to wildcard

    No way to move him out for a decent option?

    Its because I have 3 United players already without Martial, just doing a mock Wildcard now. In two minds whether to bring in Zinchenko, concerned he will get dropped

    I figured that is why you would want to transfer out Greenwood. Could you get another 4.5 striker and get Martial in somehow?

    A Swedish FPL show I use to watch mentioned Mendy is back in training. If wildcarding, I would probably think about Zinchenko alternatives in order to save yourself from a potential future transfer.

    Only if I take a 8 point hit, I am scrapping the Wildcard I cant justify it, I am only changing 4 bloody players :))

    I will wait until next GW, with a free transfer and a hit I can do the swap then, hopefully Perez will get some points this GW and I still have 2.3M in the bank so it will be a easy move.

    Sterling I will have to decide later, I do have Salah so I could chop and change as the season progresses.

    Could work out! Try to take it easy on the hits though, if possible.

    I got rid of Pérez myself, but it was mostly in order to fund another transfer (I was 0.1 short of not needing to do the Pérez transfer…). He will no doubt get a hat trick now!

    It's a bit difficult with these expensive players. Keep an eye on how they perform; other options might present themselves in the coming gameweeks.
