Talking over - good luck everyone

So gameweek 1 is upon us in a midst of angst and frustration as fantasy managers around the globe cannot log in to make their last minute tweaks.

It’s 2am (BST) at the time of writing and the situation has not changed. Fingers crossed for the morning.

I just wanted to wish everyone out there a good season. Enjoy it!

I still have one selection issue rumbling around in my head, which I’ll leave right until the deadline tomorrow morning. Otherwise I’m sorted.

If you make a bad start this weekend, try not to press the panic button, put things into perspective: it’s gameweek 1 of 38. A marathon not a sprint.

My tip for this weekend is Andy Carroll, home to Sunderland. He’s shown form in pre-season, with 3 goals in 6 games, and will want to put one over his rival club.
