    Great idea - my team is going to be a thing of beauty (I should point out that I know next to nothing about football, so don't be too harsh on my picks!).

    I've just joined - what's your team like?

    That's why they even offer an auto-pick! So you can get more points than people who think they know what they're doing!

    No, no auto-pick 'cheating' from me - only the finest footballing talents carefully selected, using the extensive knowledge I've gained by glancing at the headlines on BBC Sport occasionally... Lukaku and Morata up front must surely get at least some goals between them right? If not, I'll get Benteke off the bench in a flash.

    Judging by his poor performance in the Community Shield on Sunday, I'm saying not. Unproven in the Premier League, as well.

    Most important thing to know is that you can play a 3-4-3 formation. Get all 3 strikers in there...

    Just worked out how to change formation (all you have to do is sub a forward for a defender, for example, and it automatically changes).

    My team is basically unstoppable now, which is presumably why Tom hasn't signed up yet despite being a genuine footy expert - Just can't face the inevitable humiliation. :)

    So far so good, but yeah Morata definitely a bit of a worry for me.

    Surprised / impressed at the lack of overlap between travel hacking and fantasy football...

    As long as it helps me cement my dominance at the top of the league, I'm happy enough for it to stay quiet!

    Cracking start again, courtesy of Man United. Let's see if the rest of my players can do something similar...

    He's actually scored three goals in his first four PL games so I stand corrected.

    Yeah not bad - Lukaku is really doing the business for me though. The only slight problem was I brought in pretty much the whole West Brom defence last week, just before they lost 3-1 to Brighton...Pogba being out isn't helping me much either.

    Seven in seven now for Lukaku.
