Plodding along nicely so far. Expecting Pogba's value to recover and grow as the season progresses, especially if his bust up with Mourinho rumbles on. Hoping Coutinho will go to another level this season as he is now available to play in the Champions League for Barcelona, and think that Eriksen will really begin to be appreciated for the world class player that he is this year. Couple of younger ones in there too. Obviously Ruben Neves is well set for an audition to one of Europe's big boys this season and Demarai Gray ought to be given more responsibility at Leicester now Mahrez has left - anticipate him making the full England squad in time. Naby Keita is a quality player who will be crucial to Liverpool's likely title bid (plus the media love shiny new Liverpool players) and Bernardo Silva is cheap for a City player who will likely go from strength to strength.

Yesterday was a bit of a baptism of fire as I intended to just leave it for a few days and return to check on things but De Bruyne's value plummeted so I cut my losses early and watched Bernardo Silva's value soar. Was very interesting seeing how quickly De Bruyne's value sunk as early rumours emerged of his injury. It was like a runaway train!
I like a few of your picks there! Gray and Coutinho are interesting ones for the reasons you mentioned. I like Keita but have balked at his price recently as he was 2.50 when I joined at the start of June! I do think he might be worth jumping on though.

I fortunately got on the Pogba train when his price was around 6.20. Careful what happens with him though - if he does go to Barca, he will sell off as he's less likely to win MB there. Definitely worth holding for buzz in the mean time though.

Good move cutting de Bruyne early, I learned a painful lesson with de Arrascaeta during the world cup - took a punt on him at 1.25 and sat there not wanting to take a loss as he dropped towards 65p over the next month! Cutting losers is key.
