so, you lured me into this, and we're just nine???

I've picked a team based purely on past season performances, this meant choosing players I had NEVER heard about
(OTOH before WC 2014 I had never heard Lallana or Mirallas either... )
Then adjusted it a bit to optimise the starting 11, downgrading the bench to the cheapest possible who had assured nevertheless a fairly constant presence on the pitch

Of course this entailed:
- no players coming from outside premier league (Sanchez, Diego Costa...)
- no players from the 3 newly promoted teams
- no guaranteee that a player who scored a lot (in game points) last season, will repeat a similar performance in this one
- no insights and previews on initial good form of players who might perform well in first two gameweeks... having also no practice about managing fluctuating prices and only 1 free transfer per GW...

oh, well, that's Fantasy

I'll be happy if I finish 2nd to bottom

BTW, once I got in, I had decided to shed with 5 and try the Ultimate one too, which rules and features I liked indeed better.
But those buggers implemented as sole Age Verification method the input of a passport number, and I don't have one, so...
(I've thought of "borrowing" one from a friend, too much hassel tho)
