    That's a three match ban for Richarlison, isn't it?

    Yeah I have not seen how bad the incident was yet, from what the pundits have said it sounds tame.

    Sounds like it was a slight nod in the other player's direction only.
    VAR is definately being missed already....how Kennedy never got a ban last week in his nightmare game for Newcastle is astounding.

    Yep, astounding is the word! He didn't have a good game afterwards, either. Penalty miss to top it off!

    Agree I was getting used to VAR, it looks like the United v Spurs game will need to be a goal fest for me to get any decent points this week.

    Dam I benched Bellerín and he got an assist today.

    He won't get many of those, I think. He's played bad for a long time now.

    Yeah I have transfered Bellerín after today also lol

    Hopefully Alexander Arnold will give me a few points tonight, I suspect Liverpool will batter Brighton at home.

    Fantasy Football is fun no idea why I never played it previously, gives a added dimension to match days.

    TAA starts, so I guess he'll deliver something. He has potential for assists and goals.

    How many transfers have you made today? Must be a few minus points?

    Tonights match is on BT so i wont see it ,but i have Van Dijk ,Alisson and Mane playing,so this is a biggy for me re our fantasy teams but i want Brighton to win.

    They havent won at Anfield since 1982,so this is a good chance for me to pick up some points.

    Tomorrow i have Zaha for Palace,and Azpillcueta,Alonso for Chelsea.

    Monday,Pogba for Man Utd.

    Still lots to play for ,for my team this weekend.

    You can still make some good scores" Only have Salah, Robertson and Alonso to go, so I expect a big red arrow this week too.

    Its trending in 4th place on Twitter that Richarlison's sending off is angering Fantasy Football Managers,so it looks like a referee's cock up.

    Dont dump Richarlison just yet ,it might be rescinded.

    How many transfers have you made today? Must be a few minus points?

    I used my wild card, I shipped out maybe eight players

    Hopefully it will be rescinded, I was having second thoughts as long term he will gain points.

    Wildcarding before game week 4 isn't a bad idea, really. With Richarlisons red card (and probably a few other players dropping in price), building a team set for the upcoming fixtures can pay off.

    Needed that Salah goal so much!

    Alex Arnold gave me an additional five points, respectable total for today, I have not hit major points yet I signed Aguero so hoping he will boost my team. Gr as long as City lose when he scores :))

    I don't mind City losing either, as long as Ederson saves penalties, Mendy assists, and Agüero scores…every match!

    Just realised my wild card is active until September 1st I have made five changes :)) and managed to get Mane, though my bench is full of 4.5 players though made sure they all are likely to play most weeks.

    I got rid of Richarlison

    Yes, you can make as many changes as you like until the next deadline. If you hear news about players being injured, then you have the luxury to swap him out for someone else. You can also play the price rises, getting in players for increasing team value.

    You need players to go up 0.2 or more to make money on selling, though.
    Keep an eye on price rises/drops on http://www.fplstatistics.co.uk/ !
  • I will keep an eye on price rises cheers, looks like I needed drastic changes as my team was letting me down. Though I'll probably be tweaking my squad all week.

    Some nice picks right there, @Fire_and_Ice_Returns! Etheridge has had a nice start so far, but a few difficult fixtures coming up. He might get more than a few save points from those matches, though!

    When did you play it? Before or after the deadline today?

    Worth mentioning you have two wildcards. One before January and one after.

    Aaah of course i forgot that..no i played it yesterday.
  • @Torgeirtrap I reluctantly let Aguero go though it occurred to me he picks up the odd injury.

    @barryt007 I should have kept the wildcard thing quiet ;)

    Doesn't need to be a bad thing. He's probably unlikely to go further up in price before next game week, not having scored today. If Pep makes any comments suggesting he'll start, you can always transfer him back if you want to. Just keep an eye on comments from press conferences later next week (there will always be quotes online), and you should have little to worry about. :-)

    That's a good idea! Teams that have a good score after three weeks have done well with their team picks. Fixtures is another factor to consider, of course.

    True I have Lukaku and Kane going up against each other on Monday hopefully both will score a Hatrick in a Man United win lol
