    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Have still got a ton of players to come. Think I've only had 4 play.
    Plus I forgot how to play the bloody thing so have Evra, Sagna and Mertesacker all wasted on the bench.

    Impressive Somerset

    Yeah, I think a lot of us have a fair few players to come. Luckily I put Cahill on the bench.....

    I've only had two of my XI play as yet, Grecko and Schweinsteiger. Good thing I left Messi on the bench this round as he netted a cool 0 points. Today I have Zambrotta, Sneijder and Van Persie lined up, should be a fair few points.

    He's netted you 0 points because you left him on the bench. He netted me 18 as my captain.

    Nah, made a few changes in the end, I'm sure the team you posted didn't add up anyway. Plus I CBF spending time faffing about with it.

    Am livid, didn't understand how it worked properly so have 34 points worth of players sat on my bench. All of who would improve my current side.

    Don't think there's many fantasy games where it's advisable to put good players on the bench.

    This is the only one to be fair,

    Had Kaka, David Villa and others on the bench at the start of this round.

    It's a simple case of reading the rules before entering - surely a 23 man squad would've struck you as being a tad too large otherwise.

    I suspect my captain is still yet to play because of the way the fixtures are spread out, but with the right planning it is easy to have 3 or 4 attempts at getting the captain right.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
