    The start of the season is almost here!

    I've been fiddling with my fantasy team all week, and Buzzer mentioned the DLP fantasy league so here we are. We could do a draft if there's enough ppl interested, but I've also gone ahead and created the DLP league. The more the merrier!

    League code: b6nfmv


    Short bit of info for those not in the know:

    FPL is a game where you pick and choose your own team from the existing 20 Premier League football team, but you only have a budget of 100 million so you can't just get all the good ones and call it a day. Your players earn points based on how they perform IRL, so it adds that little bit of spice to watching the football at the end of the week :]

    Signed up. Haven't done it in a few years so we'll see how out of touch I am.

    Also signed up, looking forward to it. Last season I forgot about it and stopped changing stuff during the middle of the season, but maybe I'll keep at it longer this time. Also, I'm pretty sure I designed the ugliest kits possible, so I'm proud of that.

    I signed up as well. I'm hoping to continue my reign from last year and keep winning. Good luck everyone

    Are you guys all running Sterling/Salah and double liverpool defense as well?

    It’s all the rage.

    I'm running Firmino over Salah, and only one liverpool defender. But honestly there's time for me to change 8 more times before the season starts.

    Also De Bruyne over Sterling, assuming De Bruyne can stay fit for longer than 2 weeks.

    Indeed, and for pretty damned cheap too. Can't wait to see his reception at the Bridge this season.

    Luiz is always throwing tantrums left and right, I honestly hope he gets a bad reception.


    Anyway decided to go for Alison over Liverpool defenders. You can guess how happy I am.

    I looks like its only a calf strain so he should only miss about 3-4 weeks

    Probably gonna sub in Adrian for him for that time. It's the easiest way to go I guess.

    I'm going to take the moment to brag. 8 weeks into the season and I actually lead the DLP league for once. Historic moment considering the previous 6-7 years of getting absolutely butchered in Fantasy EPL.

    Pretty decent lead too! Nice one!
    Personally I'm happy to languish in mediocrity for another year hah.

    I’ve been transferring a tad too much. I’m up to 17 transfers AND wildcard used. Ah well, live and learn and all that.
