    Yes, if you want to do transfers, you can do so under the "Transfers" page (only one free transfer each gameweek though – if not taking -4 points for each additional transfer). To change who's in your starting eleven, you do so under "My Team".

    Spurs playing tonight hopefully Kane can match Sterling

    With Heaton in goal in my team, I hope not!

    After GW2 Sterling is a must I must be crazy not to have him in my side, I should have gone with three premium attackers they will make up for weaknesses elsewhere

    Sp*rs up next for City though. Sterling's price might go up, but I doubt he'll get the same score next week.

    Yeah thats why I said after GW2, City v Spurs will probably be tight game. Price going up is a worry though I am not taking a hit this early

    Read a bit too quickly too notice that, sorry!

    Definitely think you can get away with waiting until after next gameweek. You could save up two free transfers to get Sterling in – or make an additional (mini wildcard) transfer for -4 if needed.

    I think that's what I will do save two free transfers, when do you think you will play your wild card?

    I've tried to pick a squad where I'm only a -4 away from (almost) any player, so I'm likely to hold on to it as long as possible. From experience though, I'm likely to play it some time during the first 4-6 gameweeks.

    I think a lot will depend on how the premium strikers perform in the first few games.

    Just woke to see Kane got a brace and mildly amused as so many online doubled and trebled up on Bournemouth which I found baffling as Sheffield United are decent defensively. Other than Sterling I am OK with my team at the moment.

    You can at anytime though you currently only have one free transfer, any transfers after that will cost four points.
    You also have chips here is a breakdown...

    I hope Greenwood does not play as Tarkovski has 6 points on my bench, risky move by me with Greenwood

    Ryan bagged me 9 points, nice!

    Went with Wilson+Fraser myself. Wilson was a decent option given the opening fixtures (got an (FPL) assist today), while Fraser was an attacking option at a decent price bracket. Him getting a booking to deliver only 1 point was a bit disappointing. Also don't think Bournemouth played that well.

    I'm tempted to make a transfer before next gameweek, but it's probably a better idea to bank a transfer instead. The FPL team selection doubt is back! :))

    That's unlucky. On the other hand it's a tough fixture. They might want to use Greenwood more in the easier fixtures…?

    I may get rid of King for Jota though Wolves have United next in GW2, though Jota does well against us

    I'd definitely wait and see how Jota plays tomorrow first. My worry re. him and Wolves is that they had a long trip back after the Europa League fixture Thursday.

    Yeah, Jota only played 60-something minutes, I think - which is why I have him in my gameweek 1 squad.
    The Brighton result was surprising, Match of the Day is a must tonight for the Eye Test

    The game wasn't on TV here so I don't know how they played, but it was definitely a good result for Brighton. Graham Potter did wonders at Östersund (it's worth checking out what he managed in Sweden if you're unfamiliar with it), so it will be interesting to follow them going forward.

    Great start for Brighton though Watford are easily one of the most unpredictable teams in the league, I don't often buy there players.

    I noticed the bonus points are being processed quicker this year.

    I am currently on 65 points with four players still to play, reasonably happy with that

    Good point re. Watford. They can be brilliant sometimes, and not so much other times.

    The site was a bit slow last night (understandable given it was the deadline), but yes, they have probably done a few changes this season, making the processing of bonus points etc. quicker.

    That's a good score so far! I'm on 77 at the moment, with Jota and Pérez to play. Tomorrow's games will have an impact on the overall ranks, I imagine. There are some highly owned players in those matches.

    It was a good gameweek to play the TC chip on either Salah or Sterling, and I bet plenty of the high scores involved chips in play. I'm likely to spend the chips later in the season, but as with the previous two seasons, I'm sure the scores will be minimal when I do play them, haha!

    Ha, clearly I should have made Sterling my captain, as opposed to Kane. Should have taken a second look at my team selection last week, really. But it was a busy week.

    All things considered, though, a decent start after so long away from this thing. :)

    67 points.

    Nine behind you (I assume that's you at the top of the league, at present?)... ;)
