Like a kid on Christmas Day I was wide awake at 6:30am ahead of the first day of the Premier League season. We 5 hours until the Yahoo Fantasy Football deadline (12:00 BST) and 4.5 hours until the deadline for the Official FPL game (11:30am).
Remember we have a double week for Chelsea & Reading and for that reason my current Yahoo team is very Chelsea heavy ...
Cech, Harte, Ivanovic, Cole, McAnuff, Ramires, Noble, Kagawa, Torres, Hazard, Aguero
... but there is plenty of time for a few tweaks to that line-up.
My FPL line-up is locked in:
Federici, Harte, Gunter, A.Cole, Park, Noble, Sigurdsson, Hazard, Carzola, Torres (C), Aguero
