    Just under two weeks to go until the Premiership starts again :clap: :clap:

    Following on from the success of last year's Fantasy Football league (well you did let me win :terrier )is anyone up for another league this year?

    If so I'm happy to do the arranging.

    [Can the mods make this a sticky please?]

    Will do.

    Can't get into create a team yet as the site is not fully functional yet :mad: but comments below are based on last year.

    The idea is to pick a "Fantasy" football team from Premiership players. Players are assigned values (which go up and down to reflect their performance) and you are allowed to buy and sell players everyweek provided you keep within your budget (which goes up and down as the players values do).

    Points are awarded for goals, passes, tackles, saves etc. Points are lost for fouls, goals conceded, penalties conceded, cautions and sending offs.

    You can join several leagues and pit your skills against others; you are also entered in a league for the supporters of the Premiership team of your choice plus you also compete against everyone else in the league.

    Last year we had about 20 active participants so lets see if we can beat that this year.


    If you want to know more just ask.

    Will post details of how to sign up as soon as I can get into the Yahoo site :mad:

    Right, seems things have got sorted so I have set up the tMP Fantasy Football League for the new season.

    Firstly, if you haven't got a Yahoo! ID, then go to here to get one. Yahoo!

    Then go to here to register your team. Register

    When you are all set up click on the "join a group" link and in the Group ID box fill it in with "1106" and the password is "tmp".

    I hope this works. Any problems PM me and I'll see what I can do to help.

    Brave man... I like fowler, and he has played well towards the end of last season, but rumour is, Pearce wants to team up Cole or BWP and Vassell and leave Fowler on the bench...

    It would be a shame, because he's struggled and slogged alone for the best part of last season and earnt his place...

    As a devout red it is hard to leave him out, especially when City open the season against a dodgy defence!!!

    I really didn't like the Yahoo scoring system last year - much preferred the BBC one, although that's now defunct due to competing sites complaining about it. I think Channel Four are doing one which I'll be doing on a different forum that I visit.

    Seeing as I made very few adjustments to my team last time around I should think I'd only end up doing exactly the same this time.
