Fantasy Football

At the risk of being blasphemous, are there any fantasy footballists here interested in a road.cc league?

No rule changes that I can see, just lots of nice cosmetic changes, a new type of head-to-head league as an option, loads more ways of sorting player lists, and each player has their next fixture under their icon to make planning much easier than last year.

I've got a brilliant team. Can't wait. But I said that about the TdF Thinking

I did fantasy football once-upon-a-time when it first came out. Ended up rather ill-advisedly picking a player from that mob up the other end of the Seven Sisters Road, and with no transfers allowed that rather spoilt my enjoyment of the game - couldn't find it within myself to cheer whenever he got on the scoresheet Sick

Never again Wink

But this version gives you one free transfer a week and you can buy more if you want, plus there are two wildcards a year that let you change your whole team if you like. Keeps the addiction level high.

The game site has been down from yesterday evening.

I entered a prelim team long back. Don't even remember anymore who's in it and site won't let me enter. Let's see how the 1st week lottery turns out Smile

So the game crapped out this weekend and the organisers are giving everyone free transfers. Check out their apology here:

http://www.premierleague.com/page/Headlines/0,,12306~2421213,00.html

Since some people couldn't sort their teams out I've set the league to start scoring from Week 2. Not fair on those of us who got our acts together but we might as well start on a level playing field.

Unlike Clenbutador, we'll soft-pedal while the other guys put their chains back on.

It's not too late to join.

Impressive to be over 1K points, since I haven't made a transfer since September I think
