Dream Team managers were made to wait that little bit longer than usual to unlock their monthly transfers due to the way December has worked out.
And a lot of them might be regretting some particularly knee-jerk decisions after the weekend’s action.

That’s because none – and we mean none – of the most popular players so far this month properly delivered.
Not a single member of the top 10 most transferred in stars delivered double figures this weekend, while only two registered more than five points.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received the most transfer love and picked up five points for his assist against Huddersfield.
Instead it was down to some previous Dream Team favourites to steal the show.
Mo Salah’s hat-trick bagged him just the 28 points, easily the highest points-scorer this weekend, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Dele Alli some of the others to enjoy themselves.
Salah has actually been transferred out more than he’s been brought in so far in December, which might change a bit this week.
We’re sure it was just an off weekend, but it has taught us that patience is a virtue for Dream Team managers over this busy festive period.
Hold tight – it could be a bumpy ride.
