    Football - Fantasy Premier League 19/20 - anybody up for it?

    Any takers for playing and joining a Teakdoor Football Fantasy Premier League?

    If we get c10 takers then i am happy to register and create a TD League.

    The Fantasy Premierleague for those not familiar with it is easy to play. You set your team up with a name and buy your initial team of 15 players from a budget of 100M. then once the season starts you make weekly team changes/substitutions and transfers within a spending cap of 100M. There are nifty buttons called Chips (see rules) which you can play once during the year and amongst which allow you to reset your team in case you fuk'd up badly and bought a bunch of duffers, Dill.

    The league is live and interactive online so once the League is created you simply join it and play which requires minimal effort. The league is updated daily automatically with no further input necessary from me - simples.

    There is also a Head 2 Head league where teams play each other that might be a step too far and simply encourage nasty inter poster banter or more than the normal league.

    This year:

    We could even welcome ThaiGuzzi as his beloved Canaries are legit Premier contestants.

    It would be great to have Cyrille join but i fear at he will boycott it as WBA are not in the PL, he could however name his team The Baggies and it'll be the closest they'll get to winning the league.

    One real Manure fan allowed so sorry Dill, and Lu, Hal gets the vote.

    Chitty can join if he promises not to include Aguero in his team.

    Chas, Loops, BB, Mendip, Arry, Troy & Bets you're in.

    I feel sure it would also encourage back some absentees, Sid? but not Manny sadly as it too complex for him.

    Dave and Nev are the only two allowed to enter a joint team.

    Orrens you need a hobby

    I will allow a joint US team inc Snubby, TC, AO, Davis, Humbert and Ray.

    I am OK with keeping rivalry on the pitch and so a Team ANT and a Team SMEG could be a way to resolve TDs longest running hurt.

    Team Sausage is also welcome but be aware there is a character limit on team names and so i fear half the season will have passed before you've proof read and approved yours.

    Minty is disbarred.

    Foreign teams and from the Bundesliga are welcome Stroller.

    Pompeysbroke can enter and lurk all season, just because it annoys Ant.

    Katie, Kit and Gracie; dip your toe in the footy world, i'm sure you'll get at least 30 posters willing to assist with their expert advice.

    Lulu is allowed 6 teams but not the Admin function so don't get ideas about giving the buttons a whirl after 3 Lts of Mont Claire

    Forgive omissions - this was based upon possible uptake.



    Sooooo here's the rules:

    https://fantasy.premierleague.com/help/rules

    Anyway i'll keep this open for a week or two to gauge interest and if i get enough i'll let you know and set one up and post the details for you all to join. No prizes just bragging rights and an excuse for banter.

    Get The Duck In There, there can be only one.

    It's probably the best fantasy football app going.

    Easy to use and fun.

    Got 60 pts with Aguero as a triple team captain in the second game of the season.

    Finished 8th in my works league and about 2 millionth world wide.

    Anonmous as well....


    Get onit

    Team Chitty's Changsters is gonna rip y'all a new one

    I went all season without a Utd player on principle.


    An Evertonian won it one year without picking a Liverpool player all season.

    I've never once picked a City or Liverpool player.

    Doesn't really help me much at the moment, but I'm not gonna change now!

    I kept Salah and Aguero in my team nearly all season.

    So did nearly everyone else.

    To win it you've gotta go with the under dogs.

    It's a great easy to use app.

    Nice one Sid !

    Could do with as many members as possible getting on board to make it more competitive.

    Stuck Dalot in there.

    With the new right back he'll be playing in a more advanced position when he plays. He played a bit wide right at the end of last season.

    Good to have defenders that play further forward and get assists. Made a killing off Bale 10 years ago when he was down as a LB and had that amazing season as one of the world's best wingers/inside forwards.


    For the same reason stuck Martial in there too, Midfield points for an (inside) forward.

    DdG should get bonus points for the number of saves he makes, if not the number of clean sheets.

    When you have Rashford who only just got into double figures last year spearheading: you're not gonna get many assists.

    Those Man U players are cheap if they can get that Bruno and a centre back.

    Ive put Pogba in now looks a bargain and takes penalties. If he leaves Rashford will take pens and i'll buy him then... Ive alao got Mason Greenwood on the bench. Could be his breakthrough season

    Certainly looks like it's gonna be a season for the local and British youngsters.



    Forget about winning the league with one academy player getting 5 league games. It's all about the local youth, and getting them Europa League football next season. That's what football's all about.

    That team of yours looks alright. I fancy Salah though over Sterling for only half a mill more and penalties. That var is in effect this year.

    Probably with good reason.

    Though I reckon he's having a bit of a snigger at Giroud.


    Might have to think about wedging Salah in there somehow. Will get tonnes of points listed as a MF.


    Think defenders get the same amount of points (4) for a clean sheet, than Forwards do for getting a goal. Worth thinking about when picking a captain. Especially a big lad that comes up for corners, or an over-lapping attacking FB.

    Giroud could be a steal. They can't buy anyone, have offloaded Higuain and theres no selfish Hazard dribbling past 8 players and shooting.

    I fear Katie will not be joining us.

    I assume you all know you can keep changing your teams without points penalty right up until the start of the season? I expect quite a lot of changes in the xfer markets.

    Agreed on Giroud, cheap for a essentially Skis lone proven striker, he's one of me three forwards at the mo in this and my works one.

    A tip about the bench boost if you didn't already know, wait till later in the season when teams are playing 2 games a week.
