    True mate 

    It's probably a little harsh them calling him overrated at 18 years old and with his current record which is wild considering how he has started his career, very little players make that much impact at his age consistently 

    reported Barca and united want him for 50+ mill

    Yeah - some people go over the top with their assessments - especially with no expert knowledge. Can't wait for the season to start bounce

    Or to try keep his name out of the spotlight too much  Wink

    Same mate although after being promised a monster transfer kitty at start of summer, Rafa is now banding around the bargain basement for new additions which has soured my feelings some what!

    On top of tha our start to the season is fucking horrible

    Spuds (h)
    Cardiff (a)
    Chelsea (h)
    Man City (a)
    Arsenal (h)

    Shocked Shocked Shocked

    only solace is I suppose you could argue get the tops sides out the way early before they get into their strides, Spuds supposedly resting a host of players as well after so many involved late into WC

    Really happy with how the draft went, Need Courtois and Willian to stay in the league, Wing back heavy hoping for assists with Otamendi and Mustahpi if he stays injury free will go massive. Sessegnon was the wild card who could go huge

    Pickford, Maguire, Stones, Lukaku, Firmino might not play GW1 as they are joining the team late after WC. Son is off to Asian Games from GW2.

    Luckily comp winner is not decided in week 1

    edit: in case its not clear, this was the draft team I ended up with, so round 1 lineups weren't my prime consideration

    Seeing as though were all posting our draft squads, here's my bunch of starch filled tuberosi


    Lloris
    Leno

    Moses
    Davinson Sanchez
    David Luiz
    Sokratis
    Pereira

    Sterling
    Miki
    Keita
    Lingard
    Yarmalenko

    Kane
    Lacazette
    Gabriel Jesus


    I think the defenders and midfielders are OK, but my forwards are a shower of shit. Should I trade Kane for a top quality striker like Andy Carroll?

    Thanks mate

    Ederson / Fabianski
    TAA / Coleman / Boly / Mee / Jagielka
    Salah / Keita / Jota / Schurrle / Mkhitaryan
    Kane / Arnautovic / Wilson

    Also, would a good plan be to target a big score in round one then use an early wildcard, for a longer term team?

    Looks most teams will have players joining in late after World Cup so Wildcard after fist few rounds will probably the way to go after team sheet settles down unless its Man-city.

    few points regarding your team
    TAA has got few other players vying for the same position and he played in the world cup. If you want Liverpool Robertson is a better value though $1M more expensive.
    Coleman is a decent option but Luiz ( if he starts) gives you Chelsea cover at the same price.
    Burney have signed Gibson, will effect Mee? Something to monitor
    Keita is not expected to be fantasy relevant though he will improve the overall team performance ( someone like Kante I think)
    Kane is expected to start GW1? He has never scored in August Smile
    If this was my team, I would Kane>Aguero, Jagielka>Wan Bissaka, then Keita>Mane

    Good luck
