    Book idea: "How to win at Fantasy Football, Betting and Life" by Art Vandelay. I'd certainly buy a copy.

    I didn't plan it that way but it I had to use too many of my transfers week one and was sort of hoping Jamal Blackman would find his way into the team. I've since replaced him with Randolph (Middlesbrough), replaced Jansson with Douglas and replaced Bamford with Rodriguez (West Brom). Let the points roll in!

    You don't have to pay for your first team but I have a "season ticket" which costs a fiver and entitles you to three teams. You can use those in any of the Telegraph games - Premiership, Championship or Champions League. Yeah, I picked Douglas then shipped him out week one when he didn't play and haven't got round to re-signing him. Action is required!

    You're right, what have I been thinking? It's time for action! New keeper this weekend, Bamford also to be dropped unless he plays tonight. I didn't pick up on Reid, but had Jota plus another one of the Wolves players who were both down as midfielders while really being strikers. Barry Douglas was practically a midfielder at times too. The Champions League group draw has been made and the tournament kicks off on 18th September. The Telegraph are running a game again this season so I better start my research early!
  5. Good to see us put away our chances. Murphy defying the critics again!

    Well, yes............I've used too many transfers and won't be able to change things round properly for a few weeks. Cheers for the tip on Roofe and Maupay, I did something similar with some of the Wolves players last season.

    One wonders why we haven't loaned him out to a club who can. I'm sure many European clubs would have been only too happy to give him a season or two in their first XI.

    I was genuinely optimistic about Macron taking over as our kit supplier, they've done a decent job with some other clubs but I'm underwhelmed by this season's offerings. As I see it: Home kit: Alright, so it's always pretty much going to have to be plain red but the white collar makes it look like some 1990's kit and more in an "out of fashion" than a "cool retro" way. Also, I can't see the point of "that loving feeling" being printed on the inside of the collar where nobody can see. Still, somebody must like them given as they only have the various +XL sizes left in stock. Away kit: This is my favourite of the lot, I like the simplicity of a white shirt with the red club badge. It could just do with some more red trim to finish it off. Third kit: I don't get this at all. Is it meant to be gold? Light brown?

    What the actual **** It's awful. For a minute there I thought we'd sold Carvalho to Wolves....

    Is it that much of a mystery? He's now of an age where he needs to be playing regular first team football to keep match fit and hopefully fulfill his potential. We aren't offering him what he needs. Blackburn presumably are. He can't afford to stick around and risk wasting his potential waiting for a game behind Murphy, Grabban, Soudani etc etc.

    I've got Flint, not even heard of the other two. Will look them up, thanks...... ....... Ohhh, I see Roofe is a Leeds player. No, I didn't have foresight to pick him, on the Leeds front I picked: 1) Jamal Blackman (Sheffield United's no1 last season, 31 appearances, hasn't played single league game for me) 2) Pontus Jansson (defender, 42 appearances last season, only started one game so far, thankfully kept a clean sheet in that one) 3) Patrick Bamford (striker, did me proud last season but hasn't even started a game so far) With everything you've been kind enough to teach me about Fantasy Football I feel like I've let you down

    Thanks for the offer, but it's just too embarrassing.

    Yes, I can see you're top 10 nationally and top 5 in the Forest league, very impressive stuff indeed! Alas, it already seems to have gone wrong for me. Despite thoroughly researching my team, I had to make 5 transfers in week one just to field a fit team. But then the 5 I brought in haven't been picked since. Last season I had some success in balancing my transfers so I pretty much only used one a week, so am basically going to leave the game alone until there are 35 matches left and try to play catch up from there.

    I know it's early days but can anybody offer insight as to why Carvalho, Dias and Goncalves aren't playing together? Or at least why two of the three aren't playing? Like others I got the impression they might be good as three man unit behind the striker but today only Carvalho played (subbed after 54 minutes), Dias unused sub, Goncalves nowhere to be seen? Any ideas?
