My word, how time flies.

A quick explanation, for those who don’t know how this works, you have a team made up real players with a value limit, so you can’t have a team just made up of the “best” players and you are limited to 3 from a single team, so you can’t have just Chelsea players.  You get 1 free transfer per week, which you can carry forwards, but you can’t have more than 2 free transfers in a given week; each transfer in excess of your free allowance costs you 4 points in that week. You get 2 Wildcards, 1 in each half of the season, which allows you to make as many transfers as you like, without penalty, in the week in which you play it.

OK, let’s get on with it, then.
