With the season just days away (YYYYEEEEESSSSSSSS!) let's talk some fantasy soccer. I've been playing for a few years now over at the official EPL site and I love it. I find myself tweaking my team every day looking for that perfect balance. I wanted to get some chatter from the fine folks of this here blog to see what they think and what not. Do you have a sacred rule where you don't pick any Chelsea players as part of some superstition or do you pick some of your favorite Chelsea players?
Do you trust Torres to pick him at 10 million or are you going another direction?
What about defense? We gave up a lot of goals last season, are you trusting we turn it around this season and go back to our old ways of keeping clean sheets? In that regard, are you taking Petr Cech at 6.5 million with 2 games against weak opposition in the first week?
The first team I created I had zero Chelsea players, but as the tweaking went on, I've picked a couple Chelsea lads to make my team proud.
Feel free to share any thoughts you have on the upcoming season, sleepers, flops, etc.
