    At about the same time, it was nearly equal. My team is worth 105.9 which it was about the same time you got your increases. I think that you are the only one still in the "FA Cup"

    My team is currently worth 102.1 and I have no idea how you could possibly get a team value of 105+

    Check out the most valuable team - 115. If you're just gonna go for team value, your points are gonna suck though (cause you're going to be making lots of transfers)

    I try to balance that. My team value is 107.7 and I'm doing well point wise.

    Players who are in form do not stay there... Generally a player's form will take the shape of a reverse parabola, or some other related shape. The idea is to try to anticipate a sharp increase in form.. at least, that's one of the ways to get your team value up. The other is to try to anticipate which player people are going to pick up - and pick him up before most people do.

    It's risky.. and I think I've said too much ;)

    I don't have enough time to scout through the EPL to do that.

    I spend maybe 25 mins max each week.. then again, I do watch a lot of the games, so a lot of it is just intuition based on what you see on the pitch.

    Anybody know when the January transfers become available? I need me some Moses.

    They probably get added on a player by player basis. There haven't been any big transfers, so I haven't really been paying attention though.

    I wouldn't expect him to make a big impact straight away.

    True, but I do expect him to be cheap early on, and hopefully he'll improve. Also the attraction of having Moses up front can't be denied.

    Whoa, I just tied with some dude in the Fantasy Cup. 57 - 57.

    Figuring out what the tiebreaker is..

    edit: crap, it's goals scored :( She had Vermaelen, I didn't. We both had Rooney.. Ah well, I had a good run.

    I had my best week in terms of position for that week, being 9306th overall for that week. :D

    Err, where do you see that? :/

    I had my best week so far relatively speaking, second best in CFC league and best in my other league :)

    Just look at the history section below your score and it tells you how you did. You could have topped my in total score, but you had the wrong players on the bench.

    Ah, 26,372, cheers. Yes, I did lose some points by not having Vermaelen and by having the wrong keeper. For the keepers, it was just a bad guess, but for Vermaelen, I don't know what I was thinking having him as the third substitute. I had read a report that he might have broken his leg, which is why I put him on the bench, but I should still have had him playing just in case since there was no harm in having him auto-substituted if he was indeed injured. That cost me five precious points :(

    And why did Zayatte come on for one minute?!

    Timewasting measure by Hull to hold on to the point against Chelsea.

    Why do I have Zamora on the bench? :cry: I hope that two of my players do not play.

    :lol: I had Zamora a couple weeks ago cause Fulham had 2 games in 1 week, and I sold him right after that cause he didn't do crap.

    Bleh, I knew I should've changed my captain to Etherington or Tevez this week.
