Re: English Football 2015-16

Shocking conventional wisdom geared toward NARRATIVE, and RECENCY BIAS isn't working out meanwhile STATS are proving #1.

I guess you were predicting martial would score on %100 of his shots, and get assists on %100 of his chances created?

This wasn't a great matchip for martial, if you wanted to captain someone from MUN it should have been Memphis.

In a game where defense gonna park the bus martial won't get much production.

Your line of thinking is exactly why daily fantasy soccer is the freest money ever.

Hopefully Mitrovic can put some fire in the rest of the team today or it's going to become ugly

DS is at unbearable levels now. Need a containment thread.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Big shout out to Dicksauce for some phenomenal luckboxing in the Fantasy. Picks two non-starters (vice captains one of them!) who of course both get goals with just 20 mins on the pitch. Arsenal concede two but ofc he's luckboxed 2 Monreal assists.

Came to the thread anticipating the most thoroughly ****ish self-proclamations of genius and was not disappointed!

I usually play one line up for all my heads up , 50/50, and 3X contests. Tend to put in like 15-20 lu for the tournament style contests. Pools aren't big enough for 100+ lineups.

Ya diouf was listed as probable as starting and no idea why Norwich would leave Redmond on bench. Oh well for how bad I've run so far was bound to get some run good eventually. Stay salty.

I mean if everyone's gonna pile on when I'm wrong I gotta get my gloating in when I'm right. Only fair.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Ducksauce is reminding me of my Liverpool fan neighbour who kept telling me what a genius Brent was when Suarez was tearing up the league in 13/14.

Ducksauce/Fanny - why don't you two suck each other's dicks? You may find it more enjoyable than trying to suck your own.

No it wasn't. Not under LvG style of ****e no player in our team is going to constantly score goals or provide assists.

His goals last weekend where gifts and he scored against ipswich.

They are but we're playing that bad they looked comfortable throughout. They granted didn't look like scoring but neither did we.

Captaining or having any man utd players in your team is a no go at the moment - defence or keeper aside as we're going to - or should do - keep a lot of clean sheet due to the negative style of keeping the ball for the sake of keeping the ball.

Even by his standards Yaya was outstandingly lazy. Virtually no pressing, duel play or runs. Not since Ronaldinho have I seen such a talented player being so capable of liability.
