    In, but don't know how much attention I'll give to it though.

    Gonna give it a miss this year lads .... find it too much of a distraction from fpl.

    free Boards FSA league: code again to enter is 8374574


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Bump. C'mon lads and lassies let's get a few more to enter this

    Free to enter (and Boards FSA league code above) and the small matter of £50,000 for the overall competition winner :p

    Bumping this one last time

    https://fantasyfootball.skysports.com

    Boards league code 8374574

    It's an easy enough (free) game to play but i'll sum it up:

    - 100m budget for squad of 11 (yes 11 - no subs)
    - 2 wildcards - first one used during 1st int'l break
    - 40 free transfers to be used any time during the season (max 5 per gameweek)
    - multiple captains per gameweek - one can be set in advance for each day of the gameweek assuming you have a player playing on that day - if not you can always transfer a player in (transfers can be done while the gameweek is in play - eg. transfer a player out after Saturday games for one who is yet to play on Sunday - adding a strategic element). All your captains score double points
    - points scored for goals assists clean sheets all the usual but bonus works a bit differently - extra points awarded for high numbers of passes/tackles/gk saves as well as for the player awarded man of the match.
    - free to enter like i said with prizes on offer (£50k 1st prize) - there's also tiered money leagues (£2/£5/£10/£20)you can enter for anyone who fancies a punt but you need a skybet account for this.

    9 entrants now in the Boards league

    Just joined too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,656 ✭✭✭ 2nd Row Donkey


    Right ... I'm in. Bit thrown together at the last minute.

    Also, Salah is a forward, wtf.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Good stuff :) Just remembered there's Free League prizes "Awarded to the three Free Leagues that have the highest average points total based on its five highest scoring teams at the end of the 2018/19 season:" 1st £1000 2nd £500 3rd £250


  • Registered Users Posts: 558 ✭✭✭ breffni bogballer


    just joined, anyone else have trouble logging into their account. i ended up creating a whole new account and had team set up,then realised i had no captain in tonights match,anyhow i threw 11 together and had 3 captain picks for the 1st weekend :):):)


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Some impressive scoring in our league :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,656 ✭✭✭ 2nd Row Donkey


    Well I f**ked up my captaincies. Had Aguero captain for all 3 match days. Didn't save them properly I guess.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Some good scoring in our league. A shout out to our league leader Optimus' Prime 11 who is just 5 points outside the top 100 with a very impressive 252 points


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    How are we doing in this? I'm on 299pts, 4 transfers used, ranking 1331. Happy with that start. I doubt i'll use any transfers this week, then we have our first wildcard to use over the international break.

    I nearly forgot to join the bloody thing. Just did now.

    Also, is there a rule for our league whether teams are private or public (visible).


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man

    No rule. You just choose whichever one you want

    There is a setting so your team can be private.

    264 points, ranking 7346, 9 transfers used. Put Phil Jones in last Monday to stupidly cover the Monday match and a lack of Sunday players this weekend, have rectified that now!

    How's all your wildcards coming along?

    Terrible. Hate my team. I'm 20million over budget for anything half decent.

    Have a team, happier with the structure of it now, might make a couple of changes to it but it's well set up for the next few weeks I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Gone with this lot

    Ryan
    Alonso Mendy Robertson Pereira Bennett
    Zaha Hazard Maddison
    Aguero Mitrovic

    Aguero Bennett and Ryan the 3 captains for this week

    My team is similar to yours except I have Wan Bissaka instead of Pereira, Pedro instead of Hazard and Salah instead of Mitrovic. Would rather have options in my attack so I can put in Kane or someone like that for Salah or Aguero if needs be! Have the exact same defence as my fantasy premier league team.
