Well folks we're off - after just one match both Graham Mill-Wilson and Lawrence Cooper are quick off the blocks by making Jamie Vardy their captain.

Most of the rest of us are still floundering around on one point or none at all. Still time to enter and a full round up in due course.

Loz - can you talk us through the thinking of an Arsenal fan who captains Vardy at the Emirates in week 1?

I've always picked my team like that. It provides some meagre crumbs of comfort if things go wrong and (hopefully) avoids jinxing the Arsenal players. I'm glad I decided to bench the Leicester defender though.

Picking both of the Chelsea players who got red carded wasn't exactly the start I was hoping for.

Week One

"We have seen better days" Timon of Athens Act 4, Scene 2. Or possibly Antonio Conte after Saturday?

This season we will be featuring quotes from Shakespeare (William not Craig) or possibly the other way round with reference to Premier League Performance.

Well here we go for those who chose Hegazi (West Brom) and Zanka (Huddersfield) or possibly not for those who selected Shelvey (Newcastle) or Fabregas (Chelsea). As usual we show the top five in Premier Chess who after Week 1 are:-

1 Misery loves Kompany Paul Cooksey 94
2 Left is Best Steven Smith 84
2 Top of the Klopps Andrew Garside 84
4 Crouch > Lukaku Alex Bullen 81
5 Wengerboys Lawrence Cooper 79

Team name of the week .... picked out for Abba fans - Voulez-Vous...Zaha or Knowing you....Zaha. Unfortunately Zaha is long term injured and Fernando has moved to Galatasaray so maybe no more Abba based team names?
