@Legendary_Dork As a Portland/Steven Adams fan, gotta say that Kanter did all of his damage against Lopez and Meyers Leonard (who can't play D to save himself). LA certainly would've done better.

@GREENE1148 @TiMB That's perfect, invite sent. I'll leave the team name up to you.
Like I said above, looking to do the draft 9pm on Sunday the 27th. I think that's 7pm Aussie time (unless you're out west). Can't set it atm cos ESPN doesn't think about other timezones and has no options between 1.45 and 7am : /. Hoping they can fix it for us, otherwise might have to reschedule.
Good to have you in the loop anyway man. Good luck.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Thunder vs. Jazz: Three things to care about
@GREENE1148 @TiMB Yeah mate. Just need a name and an email and I'll send out an invite.
@long arm of the law @TiMB The 3am Sunday draft your time might be a disincentive...
Those who are from Kiwiland - any interest in a NZ/Aussie fantasy league? I've got one spot free in one I've set up. Let me know if you're interested.
@Turfright @Tronchaser Guilty
@christopher_m @TiMB Yeah, we have a lot of wide player who like to play centrally. Kinda nice to have someone like Gibbs who does well roaming the entire length of the pitch. Sagna, as much as I like him, doesn't do much offensively on the right. That'd be one of the positions I'd target in Jan.

@AK1984 @annlyn @Norsktroll That's a sad way to live, IMO. Rather trust and be burned than never trust at all.
@jakesnake99 It's really hard to peg, but they're the ones with the talent and a manager who seems to be pulling in the right direction. Chelsea have a manager who is supposed to be great but so long as he puts his ego in front of getting results, I think they'll fail.
I think Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs and pseudo-contenders...each are still a step or two away from really taking a shot at it I think. Wouldn't be surprised if Man U clamber back into it before January, although it would be nice if they don't.
@jakesnake99 I'm sceptical that Oracle have gone from being way behind to faster without having done something less than ethical.
@christopher_m Or not.....
Wenger on Walcott: 'He had an abdominal muscle problem'
@christopher_m He was.
@christopher_m Yeah, midfield play for all our depth has been shaky possession wise - It's a weakness of Jack and Rambo (even in this awesome vein of form), Flamini is a pretty uncreative passer while Ozil is on the other end of the spectrum, losing possession when his attempted killer passes don't come off. I'm just looking forward to when Arteta and Cazorla come back to replace Flamini and Wilshere. Flamini will provide great energy and depth but he was never supposed to be a first team regular. Wilshere still has those amazing flashes but overall I can't seem him retaining a spot over either of the Spaniards when he's weak as a distributor and pretty reckless defensively.
Theo was just out with illness from what I've heard - good old fashioned stomach bug.
I have Sagna and Mertesacker in my fantasy team too. Stoked.
3 assists for Ozil
@christopher_m Gnabry has looked pretty ugly in a surprise start. Hopefully he's better in the 2nd half.
@christopher_m Assists off free kicks seem bunk to me. His corners are niiiiiiiice though. Mertesacker almost had two.
@christopher_m @TiMB Missed this earlier but yuuuuuuuup. Overmars, Campbell, Petit, Pires all fit that mould. Henry might've been more of a question mark but he was an undoubted talent. What Wenger is doing now with the British core if unprecedented for him.
He's moved nicely with where the depth of talent is - moving from France to Spain and Germany for his continental signings (not that he'll ever be without a decent French presence). Saw yesterday that he's the only manager who's been in charge longer than 3 years now that Fergie has retired. There is a reason for that.
@southern oregon Cue Brandon saying he was just waiting for you to get back before launching it....

@christopher_m @TiMB WTF?! It was a fun period, without a real dominant figure like Messi is now.
