    Was hoping for a load of points yesterday because I had Fabregas as my captain. Fecker wasn't even on the subs bench. :mad:

    Three players tonight in Man U v Newcastle will hopefully get me some more points though.

    Same! Was quite disappointed about that. On the bright side, this is only Week 1 :)

    Not for long.....:P
    Gwan Reina and Rooney is all I have to say, my last hopes for this week. Went down like 3 places :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,248 ✭✭✭ Slow Show


    :D
    Only after checking there, I've jumped up 5 places and tied 4th now. Considering I was 10th at some stage last week, yaaaay :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 11,148 KnifeWRENCH


    Oh hai there Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger,
    Shur, it's only the Permiership; why would you bother playing Rooney and Fabregas?

    :mad::mad:

    Things not going well at all for me. :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,849 bluejay14


    I'm not last anymore!! \o/

    How do fantasy leagues work? I heard loads of talk about them during the world cup, but I never really understood how they work.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,013 ✭✭✭ ironictoaster


    You pick 11 players from different teams to make your own team. When they play real life they are given a number of points depending on how they play in real life. The person with most points end of the season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,444 Piste


    So does everyone just pick the best players then?

    Nah, you have a budget unfortunately..:pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,444 Piste


    Oh so everyone HAS to have a mix of good and bad players?

    Basically yeah, you can't afford to buy all the good players, so you have to buy bad ones too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,383 Aoibheann


    I wouldn't necessarily say "bad" players.. Any time I've played fantasy football (and I've done pretty well for the most part), I've managed to have a pretty damn good team. It's really about knowing the type of team a player is most effective against, and knowing when to take them out of your team. You can get a brilliant team for the number of units available to you once you know most teams inside out.. Then again, I'm aware that people aren't bothered knowing everything about every team other than the one they follow, so I might just be a tad weird. >_<

    Oh, and also knowing a bargain when you see one! Yakubu was AMAZING back in the day, and I got him for a pittance. Oh his end-of-season four goals way back when!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,849 bluejay14


    3 out of my 4 subs have broken either a leg or an ankle and my sub keeper's injured too.:mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,659 unknown13


    From now on I will be posting up the scores of the league on a weekly basis. It is done for the MMA fantasy league and works well, so I will start doing it here.

    1. Unknown13 - 332
    2. KnifeWrench - 328
    3. InsectOverlord - 317
    4. Flyswatter - 316
    5. DylanS09 - 315
    6. XxEmmaxX - 309
    7. Conorstuff - 303
    8. Kevin_s88 - 295
    9. Ironictoaster - 288
    10. Mushy - 277
    11. Rebel_Girl - 275
    12. Deise_girl - 274
    13. bluejaymraz - 264 - (Joined league in week 2)
    14. SeriousFizz - 219 - (Joined league in week 2)

    Now, I am dealing with the league a bit more, the League is actually becoming a very good competitive league now. Numbers in bold are where less than five points separate a few spots.

    Forgot all about this :/ 5th..not so bad :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,248 ✭✭✭ Slow Show


    I was 2nd a few weeks ago :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,882 conorstuff


    Oh. This is grand considering I forgot about the league. unknown13 posting the table might also help remind us to make subs and so on.
