    I like fantasy football :)

    I've only had a very, very brief look, but Everton's start looks nice - TOT, wba, STO, sun, MID, bou, Pal.

    I also like West Ham's, but you have to get past away trips to Chelsea and City in 2 of the first 3 weeks. Maybe they'll be one to look at for early wildcarders - che, BOU, mci, WAT, wba, SOU, MID, pal, SUN, eve, STO.

    I'd be avoiding Watford (sou, CHE, ARS, whu, MNU) like the plague, and Sunderland wouldn't be too far off (mci, MID, sou, EVE, tot) either.

    Investment in Pulis looks a good option at the back - pal, EVE, MID, bou, WHU, sto, sun.

    WBA rotate with Burnley. Nice cheap defensive rotation combo there you would have to imagine.

    10 of the 33 weekend GWs will likely be closing at 6.45pm on a Friday because of the new fixture slot. This has some upsides and downsides.

    My guess would be Monday the 18th of July so just less than 4 and a half weeks to wait.

    It'll probably be a week after they untended. With such a big upgrade things will no doubt go wrong when they look to do make it live!

    Someone better sign Robbie Brady so I can put him in my FF team next season.

    I think there was some teasing by the FPL on twitter without revealing anything.

    From the FPL homepage
    Important information

    Presumably it's just server changes or something boring like that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,267 ✭✭✭✭ FHFC


    Right. That's that. When do we think FPL will launch? ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,710 Paully D


    Apologies if mentioned already, but UFPL is not running for this upcoming season due to a focus on "rebuilding and improving FPL."

    July 17th. Guess it depends on what they have been tinkering with. If there's a few changes then you would hope they would give us more time but more changes is more things to go wrong when they switch it to live!

    Some ITK said 4 of july.

    9th July last year. Season started a week earlier though. Euros end 10th July so I'd guess sometime later that week.

    July 17th is a Sunday, they'd hardly launch it on a Sunday. My guess and I'm sticking to it is the 18th of July.

    What happened was after they did final testing on Friday they intended to start it on Monday but when your man was leaving on Friday night he auto set it to start running and put in 17th instead of 18th so we got it a day early. I think his name was Steve. Thanks Steve.

    What a load of balls. Prob will never come back. Really enjoyed that game.

    Really annoying alright. Surely it was generating enough money to justify leaving a couple of guys on it and just leave it as it was.

    You'd have to guess that it wasn't based on them shelving it. I'd follow a lot of FPL related social media (FHFC being the most famous FPL celebrity I'd follow on there) ;) and it just never seems to get a mention.
