It's time to get tinkering. Any bargains spotted? Any changes to the rules (I can't spot any)?

Everyone looks expensive at first glance, especially defence. Will need to do some digging for those bargains

Nothing striking me as different to last season in terms of rules either, although I have seen it said that the first overhaul is week 5 and not 4 as the site states??

Had been hoping for some interface changes but that obviously wasn't to be. Still hate the way the stats tab is set up and having to click on each player to even see what position they play!

Still no 5-4-1 formation or ranking history - my main gripes from past seasons.

Initial thoughts:

Prices looking seriously difficult this time around but seems a few new signings not even added yet e.g. R. Pereira (Leicester), Leno (Arsenal).....

No sub-6.0 starting GK by the looks of it with most of the likely lads in the 6.5-7.0 bracket. Guaita at Palace could be an option at 6.2 if he gets the nod over Hennessey.

Fred (Man Utd) could be one to look out for at 8.9 given the jump in price for Matic, Kante, Xhaka & Fernandinho and is only slightly higher than Doucoure. Fabinho (9.1) and Keita (9.2) worth a look too.

Will be monitoring Arsenal in pre-season. Lacazette could be a sleeper at 11.4, Mkhi at 9.7, & Ozil at 10.4.....all drops on last seasons prices. Ramsey & Auba got hikes but may still be worth consideration.

Antonio at 7.9m could be very good value if he can stay fit - IF

PVA at 7.6m

Stephens 6.9m if nailed....

Fabianksi at 6.5m look to be the go to keeper imo - only really like him or DDG at these prices

Well seems this year will have to be a choice not just enabled to get all the players you want, plan until first Over haul but what people’s thoughts on deulofeu?

Nice summary Paul. This is pretty much my feelings as well. Think we will have to be punting on a few new players and promoted players early season

Never liked Deulofeu in Sky @garyp as he always struggled with game time. Open to be proved wrong though and his price does look attractive

Yeah, good shouts on all of those Luke. Especially Antonio. Were you involved in price setting this year?

United captain required. Will Lukaku be back? Guess we'll get to see lineups. Fred could be an option. Or Sanchez > Kane move?

I’m pretty gutted that United are needed for captaincy. Hadn’t planned to have anyone in. I’m going to need to have a rethink.

Agreed. Seriously considering a Sanchez > Kane move or something like that. As @Ste said though, at least we will see line ups

Schmeichal my Captain that Friday, straight to the top of the leaderboard when he saves a Lukaku penalty and keeps a clean sheet then I plan to stay there all season...

Sound like a plan?
