    Salah, Lukaku, Ake, Abraham and Batshuayi. Sounds familiar.

    Im happy with my squad eventually. Might be a bit Liverpool heavy so I could be in for trading off Lallana and maybe Mkhitaryan.

    Sandro is my sleeper pick and hopefully Bernardo cements a starting place.

    VVD, Ake, Trippier, Walker and a rejuvenated Stones. Not too shabby.

    ---------

    PS is crazy though. Sanchez to City is his big hope as drafting Coutinho too is a massive risk.

    I don't think we did so bad completing the draft in just over a week considering the draft took place in the UK, Australia, China, Japan, Croatia and Norway.

    I hope everyone is looking forward to my Kelechi Inheanacho song puns this year after Jordan Ibe made it too easy for me.

    All seriousness, I think that might be the best draft I've ever done as long as some things come off. Mahrez staying, Kelechi leaving etc. I don't think there's a standout team in the league, but I like Blondie's team quite a lot. Defo a strong addition to the league.

    Regal's had a mare and I hear Paddy Power are already paying out on him being relegated to Div 1. Darren Fletcher is the greatest shit draft pick since Zero took Trippier in the 3rd round.

    Surely best case scenario is him staying at Arsenal? He was the top scorer in the league last season there, and even he wouldn't play as much at City as he would at Arsenal who don't have Champo League.

    Im in the boat that doesn't see Sanchez staying at Arsenal at all. City is better than abroad.

    Live by the sword, die by the sword lads - heard it all before last year.

    Not that it's an excuse (and it certainly isn't for my early draft picks) but it was very difficult doing this draft in Croatia with barely any signal, was just picking random names by the end.

    And he scores goals...!

    Also agree that Syko's team probably does look the strongest on paper right now.

    Can you tell your gf I probably need first pick in the Supp Draft Nash?

    And he scores goals...!

    Don't be silly PS. Nash is getting first draft pick.

    Or if Morata starts badly then maybe 2 to throw everyone off the scent.

    I see Blonde has beat me to picking up Diego Costa - I've been toying with that decision for a week but was struggling to drop anyone as I have so many injuries right now fs.

    Worth a risk if you have a full squad.

    And he scores goals...!

    Costa won't play for us again. He's likely heading for a deadline day departure. Morata and Batshuayi won't be cast aside in favour of him, at least not with Conte in charge.

    Early days but my team looks pretty atrocious too, especially if Coutinho does go. I was optimistic he'd stay for one more season and go to Barca next year when I took him, but starting to feel like one more bid and he may request to leave this season.

    First weekend doesn't look good with 7 injuries.

    And he scores goals...!

    Is there something wrong with the scoring??

    GKs are getting points per save and 5 for a CS.

    And certain defenders aren't having the minus points for 3 goals. Oddly Luiz and Rudiger did but Azpi and Alonso didn't?

    Week 1 and my top three picks of Lukaku, Mkhitaryan and Salah paid off big.

    Cech racking up a solid -5 and Fabregas getting sent off is not the ideal start. Not that I deserved to win but that Valencia booking was annoying as I would've otherwise sneaked a lucky win by a point.

    So flukey to draw though, and yeah I would be raging if I was in Dmac's position tbh.
