would really be great if someone could give tips as to how to improve his chances
Try and put lots of Chelsea players in this week. They are playing West Brom at home. Not saying it is a foregone conclusion but they have a good chance of a few goals and a clean sheet.
Could go either way to be honest, either a very close game as even at home we set up as though we are the away team or we could get stuffed as everyone expects. Either way expect three points for Chelsea but don't be surprised if we sneak a point or keep the score down to one or two but defensively Chelsea should be fine.

We were on a poor run when we went there last season and ended up 30 seconds away from 3 points until Ramires tripped over a blade of grass and we came away with only the one. Defensively we are better this season but with the addition of Diego Costa and Fabregas so are Chelsea.
I did say it wasn't a foregone conclusion but Chelsea are head and shoulders above every other team in the league. I do agree with what you said about Ramires and that rogue piece of grass he fell over.
I know what you're saying and to be honest yesterday was 95% certain of a Chelsea win, today after news that Jason Davidson could play if Pocognoli doesn't make it then i'd say its 99% certain on a Chelsea win.

I think the best way is to have a guess at what results will be first.
If there are a few clean sheets up for grabs, try loads of defenders with players from those teams.
Defenders who set up and score are good to have, so if you can get a player who will clean sheet, set up and score you will get loads of points.
Chambers at Arsenal is great for that but only if they clean sheet.
If there are not many clean sheets going to happen, be more positive, flood the middle and attack with scorers and assisters to get the points.
The most expensive player is not always the best option, Southampton defenders and Chambers at arsenal are good examples of cheap players scoring high from defence.
Midfielders who score and assist are an absolute must and you are obviously looking for strikers who do the same.
We have played 4 different formations already this season to get the players we want for points.
You need to be up to date on injuries too.
The tricky part is budget. We have managed to get 6 chelsea players, 2 united players and sanchez in our team this week.
It is a funny week of games in my opinion though, a few games could end up going either way and I cannot see there being loads of clean sheets.
Good luck.
many thanks for your detailed tips and well done on your success at this game. my son read your tips and has spent a couple of hours picking a team
I cant help him as I know nothing about football. he was ready to give up on this game but your tips have spurred him on many thanks will let you know how he does.

I have had my post turn up this morning but have had no pro 11 cards for the Week commencing: Sat 8th November 2014 turn up! Has anyone had anything turn up for that week over the past couple of days or today and if so which position did you finish in?

When you click the leaderboards you can change the leaderboard to a weekly view to find out where you came for the previous week, is updated every saturday at 12:00 i think








Anyway, good day so far, ive noticed my team is like 50% chelsea and 50% southampton! But not exactly as i have 1 arsenal player as well! But Chelsea look to be doing me good so far, Costa, Hazard and Fabregas getting me a few points, fingers crossed for top 500
