    I have switched Salah with Hazard! I do get a certain sense of impending doom though! However, I have to say my team looks better balanced without Salah, so I think I will stick with my current team. I am on my wildcard and I must have changed my team a million times!

    Off to the spurs game today and really hope Salah doesn't score! But keeping him in my team coz I think he will come good.

    I've normally given up caring about fantasy football in mid September, but somehow I'm top! Just making the most of this as the inevitable slide down the table will begin.

    Good luck.

    Have a good time at the game.

    I have wildcarded this week and had Mane in my team for the last three weeks. However, I have chickened out at the last minute and went with Salah instead.You are right I have a feeling he will come good in the near future. I am Hopeful that few punts on the likes of Demarai Gray and Seri will pay-off too. I also chose Ings instead of Mitrovic.

    I know I will probably regret the choices I have made in my wildcard, but who knows they may be inspired!

    You never know you may maintain your position with a bit of luck.

    Good luck for the rest of the season.

    Safe to say I'm regretting not making the Hazard switch last weekend!

    Switching him to Hazard and freeing up a few million is really tempting though! I'm trying to keep the faith and save my transfers.

    Looking good lately after an awful start, though I still can't pick a captain for the life of me.

    Salah 16 pts (Mane would have scored 32)
    Sterling C didn't play, Eriksen VC 4 pts (Aguero would have scored 40)
    Sterling 6 pts
    (Alonso would have scored 22)
    Aguero 12 pts (Hazard would have scored 22)
    Aguero 14 pts
    Lacazette 16 pts
    Aguero 16 pts

    Kane 2 pts (Hazard would have scored 28)
    Sterling C didn't play, Hazard VC 2 pts
    Firmino 4 pts
    (Alonso, Martial, Sterling, Richarlison would all have been better choices)
    Hazard 8 pts (Sterling would have scored 42)
    Firmino 4 pts
    Aguero 4 pts
    (Sterling VC would have scored 32)
    Aguero C didn't play, Salah VC 6 pts
    (Sterling would have scored 18 )
    Sterling C didn't play, Son VC 16 pts (Wilson and Richarlison were better choices)
    Sterling 4 pts (Son would have scored 28)
    Kane 10 pts
    Sterling 4 pts (Son would have scored 42)
    Kane 12 pts

    According to gargatron.com, if I just chose the best captain from the players I had in my team at the time, I would have scored 294 pts more. And would now be ranked in top 100 and not in top 1,000,000. I have yet to pick a captain who scores double digits.

    This week I owned Hazard (15 pts), Pogba (15 pts) and Digne (17 pts) but captained Kane (6 pts).

    I captained Sterling 6 times but managed to miss ALL of his hauls, and owned him during his 4 big hauls but didn't captain him.

    This is actually a game of picking captains. Nothing is as important as that.

    Hindsight can be a bitch when it comes to fantasy football! I find myself doing similar things where I work out how many more points I would have had if I'd made different decisions but you've just got to make the best decision you can at the time and not think too much about what could have been!

    I'm currently on the strategy of just captaining Salah every week - he rarely lets you down. There may be bigger hauls elsewhere but I thinking keeping a good average with captain picks is key.

    I'm hoping for a Snodgrass goal tonight to take me to the top of the league!

    PS. Nice pick with Digne. Wish I had him, his underlying stats look great!

    There's now enough data, I'm trying to figure out are there any rules to choosing the best captain. Or is it a game of bingo.

    I think I'm going with Kane this GW. Home game vs leaky defence, good team form, is capable of scoring a lot, will at least score once unlike others who either blank or haul big (looking at you Raheem).

    Snodgrass has been pure gold lately.

    I have managed to get lucky the last couple of weeks. Although the week I decided to use my triple captain on Aguero, he decided to get 2 points or something.

    Salah is going to be my captain the rest of the season now, unless he breaks his leg or something.
    I retired Aguero. No point flogging a dead horse.

    I'm averaging 73 pts over the last four GWs. Looking good, I'm still in the cup too.

    Haz out, Salah in.

    As a Liverpool fan Im far too drunk and disappointed to deal with this. At least were still 4 points clear!

    Salah blanked in 8 of 20 games, and 7 of those were against other top six teams.

    Liverpool are only playing a top six team 3 more times in the season.

    So yeah. I'm bringing in Salah. Just not sure who's going and will I take a hit.

    I was unlucky as well with captain choosing so far, let's hope it's going to change now

    This week has been a nightmare for me already with Kane and TAA both out. Looks like I'm going to have to take a -8 to sort my team out...

    My team is so unbelievably good now when the season hasn't started yet. I've actually never seen a better team.

    Yeah we should all automatically be entered if we were in it last year.

    Looking forward to another frustrating season of always picking the wrong captain!
