    I added a sortable and searchable 'Taken Players' tab to the Google Spreadsheet that will auto-populate with changes to the 'Squads' tab. If you don't mind, please don't edit the values on that tab, but feel free to sort however makes sense to you.

    Spurs brought on Doherty for all of 3 minutes, seemingly just to keep Mitrovic on my bench. There will be better days. There will be better days. There will be better days...

    You will have better days, it’s a long season so first week isn’t a big deal. I would definitely put Mitrovic as an every week starter, he’s expected to be a goal machine this season (like he was in the championship last year) and I wouldn’t be surprised if he winds up in the top 10 epl goal scorers at season end.

    43 goals in 44 matches last year is insane:eek:

    He probably won’t put up similar numbers in epl that he did in championship last year, but if he stays healthy he’ll be in top 10 goalscorers. Another club legend for Fulham, like American soccer icons Brian McBride and Clint Dempsey:thumbsup:

    You don't need to convince me. That's obviously my hope, as I drafted him quite early. But, it's not like it's his first go in the Premier League. He was pretty much crap last time Fulham were up. Against the kopites, who gave up all of 26 goals last campaign, I think playing him bench 1 is perfectly defensible and just bad luck, made worse by Doherty's 3 minute cameo that cost me net 12 points. The effect of 5 subs on fantasy is going to take some getting used to.

    No problem, and if you want to make a trade I’ll trade Havertz for Mitrovic. I’m a die hard Arsenal fan but have a soft spot for Fulham so looking to add a cottager to my team and he would be the one. Havertz was ranked a little higher on the forward lists so it would be a fair trade if you’re interested. If not, no problem

    @Norm Coyle That decision/cameo also was the difference in our head to head match.

    No thanks.
