    This is the code for the standard league: 435693-112918

    This is for the head-to-head league: 435693-112921

    Following last year when the league was filled with search-and-play surfers, the codes will be removed and available only by PM after the beginning of week 1.

    You need to keep the codes off the site and only get them via PM, otherwise people will see them who are not members of the site. That is something we learned from last years edition.

    Thank you for setting up the league Mr Pangur.

    I hope to break into the top four this season :)

    I'm in. How do you guys pick your squad? Any tips? I always end up with a lot of bad players because I spend most of my budget in 2-3 star players...

    I'm waiting till closer to the start of the season to pick a team as quite a few transfers haven't gone through yet.

    Generally its worth looking at how many points a player picked up last season and then whether you think they will do better or worse this season taking into account the transfers for that team as well. There is a decent amount of luck involved as last season Coleman at Everton picked up a huge amount of points and was very cheap at the start of the season. I don't think many people would have heard of him before the season started.

    My personal advice would be to prioritise goal scorers. I got the vast bulk of my points last season from Suarez/Sturridge/Giroud scoring once a week.

    After that, aim for cleansheets, so don't slouch on your goalkeeper. Make sure he is top quality. This includes defenders too.

    If you have any money left over aim for goalscoring midfielders.


    Make sure the players you sign are regulars and unlikely to get an injury (no Abou Diaby) :). Don't lose interest and forget to pick your team on christmas day ;)

    Transfers are free / unlimited until the beginning of the first game week. So you can begin your team and chop and change as much as you like between now and season start.

    Per Classical Hero's comments, I've been interested to observe the number of surfers coming to the league. Beyond my expectations for this time. Had to expel many users so far (fortunately very easy to identify .. or so it seems anyway).

    BTW, for those not aware of these things, the classical league (here CFC league) is the main league the winner of which is determined by total points (i.e. purely by merit). The H2H is secondary in being determined partly by luck, but fun nonetheless. Every week you are matched against a different opponent, and whether you win or not determines what you get. And at the end of the season you win the league depending on your head-to-head success rather than your overall points. A bit like the NFL fantasy leagues.

    Added a player list to top post. If you identify yourself (not your name, just your team) you'll help me keep the league honest and fun. :)

    The EPL fantasy game is more restrictive about defining strikers. Ronaldo was a midfielder when he played.

    Of course. Season doesn't start until August 16, after which you cannot join the H2H league. There is no expiration for joining the main league, though if you wait until after August 16 it will be harder for you to compete well due to lost points.

    Were all the bad players valued at £4m last season? I can't recall.
