          I never had him in my team. He is too expensive for his returns especially for the last God knows how many rounds.
          I know you are not into MLS this year but look at that.
          The most expensive defender overthere is Zusi from KSC at $8.5
          In the last 7 rounds he has 49 points against 13 from Alonso.

        • @IvanTheTerrible yeah but the scoring in FMLSis completely different
          You get 10 on a regular basis because of extreme bonuses
          Zusi now classed as a def? About time
          He’s been playing full back 2 years now.
          When I first played FMLS he was a premium mid who was one of if not THE most desireable FMLS players to have.
          Not missing that game at all, sounds a complete utter farce this season and I’m well out of it .
          See nothing but complaints on here about anything to do with it, they can’t all be wrong.
          I’m done with it now, won’t ever play it again.

        • Who’s the must have players this season?
          Any new names?
          Gio doesn’t seem to be firing again? Or Toronto for that matter?
          Seattle were bottom last I looked, what’s going on there? Lodeiro still there or has he left? Dempsey?
          How can you go from back to back finalists to bottom I don’t know – unless Lodeiro left?

        • @NomdeGuerre
          Lodeiro, Valeri, Villa, Sacha, BWP and Gio are still around.
          Toronto have been busy with CCL and don’t do well. The rest are as usual. Many big new names like Vela, Rossi from LAFC and quite few from other teams. The latest sensation is the arrival of Ibra, already with 3 goals in two and a half games.

        • @IvanTheTerrible saw his impact from bench and THAT goal, superb finish but largely helped by an inept out of position keeper
          He’ll deatroy the defenders in that league, far too good at that level
          Read about another big name likely going into mls other day but can I hell remember who it was.

        • @NomdeGuerre
          In all honesty I had doubts myself at the beginning with the new format. But, things are settling now nicely. It’s very much like the UFPL which lasted only two seasons. The cost to play was £5 per season but because many countries have tough gambling rules and wouldn’t accepted it was scrapped.
          The season is split in two parts. July is the start of part 2 and everything will be reset to 0. So, if you feel itchy for some mad fantasy football, that is the time ;)

        • @IvanTheTerrible WHAT??? It’s 2 seasons in 1?? :eek:
          You’ve got to be kidding though?
          It finishes then starts again from scratch?
          They truly have wrecked that game, season before last it was superb, way better than FPL, hated it last season and rapped twice
          Season before last was superb though
          That was when Gio was must have.
          It’s almost like they want to wreck the game, it also looks heavily slanted in favour of time zone too, in game meddling
          You’ve no chance if not on the USA time zone

        • I finished 83 in the world season before last and 203 last season even after rapping it twice
          It’s a lot easier than FPL but the late injury news and time differences make it almost impossible for non Yanks to win it.

        • @NomdeGuerre
          You are so right about the time zones. I hate when there are nice matchups and they are played on the West Coast. I can’t be arsed staying up till 3 AM waiting for the lineups.
          Still, the game is very challenging but takes a huge involvement.
          * Have a look at the video I posted yesterday in the MLS article. It explains all the new tricks we have to deal with this year :P

    • @ed209 time yet mate,until last night Murray was my top scorer on just 6
      He’s now on 8, Kane on 10, Groß on 12, Son on 6
      Don’t have Salah but will have on FH this week ( if playing )
      Still 3 games to play with Man U Leicester Chelsea players all widely owned so a lot will change

      • @NomdeGuerre yip everyone else in my ML used their TC on Lukaku so hoping he blanks again tonight. Would be great if Vardy, Morata, Fabregas etc come to the fore and get me some points. Salah on 8 leading the pack, Son at least got an assist yesterday otherwise it is slim pickings. Grob was a good call, I went Albrighton instead, usually gets a full at the end of the season but didn’t even play first Leicester game.

  3. Not heard Mahrez name mentioned in the commentary for a while.
    Has he downed tools and handed in another transfer request?

    He is going from my team even if he scores five goals in the last five minutes :angry:
