    Got a kicking this week as didn't manage to get online much at the back end of the week, so sat with an injury to Skelenberg, suspended Steven Taylor and half retired Anelka. Hoping for an RVP hat trick tonight (esp as I have no Chelsea players)

    I should have went for the Foster+Fonte combo instead of Boruc+anyone else this week. Still happy enough with my start.

    Also, does there seem to be more bonus points being awarded this year? It just seems a bit wrong that six defenders in the ManU Chelsea game received multiple bonus points. That BPS should give out half points or something to separate performances.

    Yeah, they're throwing around bonus points like confetti, think all the 4 of theArse defenders got at least one yesterday.

    Anyway, ding-dong battle at the top, had a poor week, but expected have a fair few Chelsea players and Benteke, so I had to rely on the dregs, so not too disappointed especially as my cap'n had a stinker.

    What determines how the bonus points are allocated anyway? Has always been a bit of a mystery to me.

    Basically a fairly rubbish way that is not indicative of who the best players on the pitch actually were..

    Players score BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):

    Playing in a game
    Playing over 60 minutes
    Scoring goals
    Goalkeepers and defenders (4 points)
    Midfielders (6 points)
    Forwards (8 points)
    Assists (3 points)
    Goalkeepers and defenders keeping a clean sheet (4 points)
    Saving a penalty (5 points)
    For every 3 saves
    For every 3 open play crosses
    Creating a big chance (a chance where the receiving player should score)
    For every 8 clearances, blocks and interceptions (total)
    For every 8 recoveries
    Providing 3 key passes
    Making 3 successful tackles (net*)
    Scoring the goal that wins a match
    Pass Completion (after making at least 30 passes)
    70% completion (1 point)
    80% completion (2 points)
    90% completion (3 points)
    *Net successful tackles is the total of all successful tackles minus any unsuccessful tackles. Players will not be awarded negative BPS points for this statistic.

    Players lose BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):

    Conceding a penalty
    Missing a penalty (-2 points)
    Yellow cards
    Red cards (-3 points)
    Own goals (-2 points)
    Missing a big chance
    Making an error which leads to a goal
    Every 2 errors leading to an attempt at goal
    Being tackled 3 times
    Conceding 2 fouls
    Being caught offside 3 times
    Missing the target with 3 shots

    The lack of goals to start the year has just made the fullbacks get the majority of the bonus points so far. As soon as we see games where both teams score, it should change I think. I bought in Lukaku as soon as the trade deal to Everton happened without seeing they play Chelsea next GW, oops.

    Can't believe I got the 2nd highest score of everyone in the head to head league and managed to be playing the massive **** who got the highest

    Yeah I've been lucky the past 2 weeks really after making some wrong decisions and injuries have actually helped me out. Boruc and Fonte have been really good for me too.

    I'm a bit tempted to bring in RVP this week if I find out he's fit and available as Man Utd start having an easier draw now. It's just a bit hard to work out which 2 of Soldado, Benteke, Walcott and Silva to get rid off. I'll probably bring in Hull's Aluko or Brady who looked great against an admittedly terrible Newcastle defense. I wouldn't mind jumping on the Ozil bandwagon at some point soon too before his value gets too high.

    I'm having a shocker this round, Yaya and Rooney captain and vice was a bad move! Bring on the second wildcard availability - my team is a shambles at the minute.

    I think Pellegrini screwed a lot of us up yesterday, doubt you'll lose much ground.

    Have tailed off massively over the last 2-3 weeks. V disappointing.

    Yeah true although 27 is very poor. Its funny, this year I created a second team to just try some things and typically it is paying off far more often for that team than this one. as its 100+ points ahead of my team in this comp.

    This week for some reason I traded out McGregor (6) for Gazzinga (0 didn't play) instead of my initial decision to go (Morrison 0 didn't play) out for Mutch (12).. I also did a last minute change of Lukaku out as vice captain which overall screws me up a further 27 points.

    When the wildcard becomes active I'm going to make 7 or 8 changes.

    Close up the top now though. 6 points separating the top 4.
