  • 2015/16 Kick-off!
    on Jul 20, 2015
    I didn't put up any posts last season, which was ironic because it was the best finish my team has ever had. If I could go back in time to last season, I'd tell you I am playing Naysmith, Ivanovic and Dzeko for Gameweek 1. After Gameweek 1 I'd p...

    on Aug 30, 2013
