    Hi Everyone

    At TheLastOne36's request, here is the thread for this year's fantasy premier league game. I will be making 2 leagues this year, as a new head-to-head format is available as well as the classic league.

    You can sign up at fantasy.premierleague.com, and join the leagues with the codes:

    Classic: 550-7020

    Head-To-Head: 550-7050

    NB: There are 3 'knockout rounds' (similar to the fantasy cup) in the head-to-head league.

    Good luck everyone!

    Unless I'm ********, which is a distinct possibility, I should be signed up for both.

    You could have PMed me and I could have just renewed the league I had last year.

    Anyway I will join these ones.

    I'd be happy to let you do that, I didn't realise that it was possible to renew a previous league so I just made a new one. It's up to you...

    5-10 mins every week.

    If you are familiar with the teams, and some of the players, you'll do okay. If you watch a couple games a week, you'll do better.

    Your goal is to have players that are in form on your roster.

    That's what I did last season, since I also opened the two previous years leagues, but there is no point now, since these two have started. So far in the pre season match, one of my Strikers has scored a goal in my home town. :D Good news for me and he is quite cheap.

    Anyway I have deleted it since this has started.

    I just joined the 2 leagues.

    Hmm, how would you guys feel about a non-CFC person joining? It's my brother in law, it's his 2nd season doing this, and he's looking for a good league to play in. Last season he played in one I used to be in, but I don't think it's coming back..

    Yeah, he got 2nd (behind me) in the other league, which had about 12 people in it. Was 1st for a bit but then I caught up to him. He's only been following the Prem. for the last couple years, and is a bit more of a baseball fan, but he's caught on fast. Plus, we can expect him to actually update his team every week and not give up. His team is Cambridge FC.

    Joined both as well. Will be doing my usual routine of gradually logging in less and less frequently after a few weeks.

    are you guys ready!?!??!?$ chelsea vs hull kicks off in 7 hours or so.

    i'm going on a 16 hour long premiership/tfc (hey, they play at 5pm, when there's a break in setanta's prem. coverage) marathon tomorrow. i have 14 beers lined up and ready to go. that's 1 beer a half, or so. should do the trick, methinks??

    I am curious to see which players you guys have all picked. With Ronaldo gone, Gerrard and Lampard are kind of front-runners to replace him. I mean, I put both of them on my team.. I have 3 Hull players on my bench.. cause.. well.. Hull is going down. I wanted some west ham players instead, cause they're going to do well this season, but I couldn't afford anybody good.

    Either way, I can't sleep, and it's driving me nuts. I'm going to need a lot of sleep to watch all that football. Wish me luck boys. zzzzzz

    ( can you tell i started with a bit more than 14 beers?)
