    I went to pick up a new midfielder earlier with Mitchell and Lewis both on the sidelines, and my other backup not playing ... there was only one available midfielder who was selected ... Jarrod Berry, switch on son! ... apparently he plays for Bris

    Cripps, 37 disposals, VC loophole. :cool:

    A little disappointed so far this season. Went heavy on mids but my starting seven are never firing in the same week, and Hannebery being my lowest ranked mid is either a blessing or depressingly unlucky. Last week I kicked 24 goals too and still lost (a few tackles and a free kick or two).

    Would love it all to come together one week.

    Perils of playing in a deep league. The free agent situation is dire most weeks, I pity the fool who suffers an injury crisis!

    Thanks for that by the way. He was my last pick but you just nabbed him.
    My mods have been just ok. Parker has been only ok. Hunter has been a beast some weeks and only average the next. Zara ok. Boak just did a hammy and Conca has actually been a star for me and scored a back positional upgrade. But I don't have the centres to play him there.

    For next season it may be a good idea to play with one less defender,midfielder and forward to increase the size and quality of the FA pool. We could also drop off one on the bench as well.

    I think they've dropped the number of mids this year to be honest. It hasn't been this skint in the previous four years.

    I may just swap one mid for a utility next year. That way we're still running with 18 but then you can pick your best available remaining for slot 18.

    Good idea. I wouldn't mind seeing 2 utility slots actually. 5-5-1-5-2 would be a nice structure and give managers a bit more variety in their strats.

    This league feeds off of your misfortune.

    +1 for the utility spots. Would be very handy, and there seems to be a fair few teams who go into games 1 down.
