I had read it, thanks anyway for the heads-up

I was indeed planning to wait a few weeks before using it
I thought I'd better let current season stats to develop so I could rely on them for an "informed redesign"

OTOH I saw lotsa FPL managers "rush" to transfer Sigurdsson in as soon as, or even before, first match ended.
Is it maybe bc they foresaw his tranfers surge, and as it will surely cause a Price Rise (and indeed he's the first and only one at 10.1), they wanted to be the first in?
Are things that quick and volatile here?
I thought sheeplike to all flock behind the first who scores... we know players who fluke then go dry for a long while (see Hamsik last Serie A season)... otoh SWA has two upcoming homers vs BUR & WBA

a "sinlge" free trasnfer offers limited options
much more useful to make 2 joint ones, so you can upgrade your main objective while downgrading a collateral, making up for budget
so I was planning to wait at least GW2 to use the saved FT
I have so few pts that shelling 4 on a transfer seems a folly to me at this point: still don't feel confident enough to gamble that the one I bring in will score 4p more than the one I sent out in next GW - unless that's on a longer term plan, but maybe that's manageable as well by "diluting" changes with FT only, or with a right-moment wildcard...
will have to learn that with experience

OTOH (again) because of "market dynamics", the longer I wait the more a desirable goal might get expensive, while my "outbound assets" will depreciate, drastically reducing my "manouvre window"...

was this again about economics, or football???
