It's not just picking the big boys, KC, it's when you pick them. :sneaky:
i.e. Arsenal 1-1 v. Wolves knocked out a big number of players.
That’s very true. If I remember rightly Chelsea drawing at home to Everton also knocked quite a few out that week. I wonder though if things could be speeded up by having a rule to say that once you’ve picked a team to lose you can’t pick them to be on the losing side again. I think this game is just as much about the little boys as the big boys. I put my survival down to being continually able to feast on low hanging fruit like Fulham and Huddersfield.
 
That's an interesting one, nimzo, and certainly true this year. Although I wonder if we would go from a 9-week pool to a 4/5 week pool if we did so. We do survivor pools over here mostly for American football, and there is always an element of strategy, trying to look a few weeks down the line so that you don't end up in a cul-de-sac. The offsetting strategy is to simply go for the best pick every week and let the other guy make a mistake. Then there is just dumb luck. I enjoy a drawn-out game ..... as long as I am still in it of course! Good luck this week.
 
All the bets are in:
