I created a league at the Premiership's official site. Check it out, if we dont use it no biggie.

EPL Fantasy League (http://fantasy.premierleague.com/index.html)

join league code: 331596-66128

Register with them then it should ask you for the join league code which is posted above.

As many people who want to sign up go ahead.

Of those two I'd probably favor the yahoo one. I was reading the 2nd one and came across this:

You can select up to 2 players from any one team. If a player is transferred during the season and this transfer takes you over this limit, then you will need to go back under the limit when making your next transfers

Which is kinda gay, because if one of your studs gets transferred you could end up getting screwed. Plus it has the pseudo-salarycap thing... how am I supposed to make like the Yankees/Chelsea with that? haha

There's an icon along the right side of the screen after you've selected all your guys to join a league... I can't exactly describe it, but it's there

Sweet. I don't know too much about the EPL, but I'm syure this will help me learn. I've also been playing a lot of World Soccer Manager 2007 and that helps a bunch.

Changed my fantasy team to Chelsea FC instead. Was only into Liverpool because Robbie Fowler came back. But now he's gone. Gonna try and follow Chelsea this season. Already got a nice glimpse of them vs LA.

Yeah I was kind of in the same boat... I followed Arsenal b/c I liked Viera and Henry, but with them both gone (and discovering somebody I really don't like is an Arsenal fan) I think I'm gonna follow ManU this year.

As far as the EPL goes, I tend to side with Man Utd. since I know more about them than any other club.

I really don't care a lot about the EPL.......(Go Barcelona baby...) but I guess I'll say go Liverpool.

SCfan804
07-26-2007, 07:02 PM
Barca is so stacked for next season, and they were all good moves. Real Madrid tried the stacking approach over the last few years, but bought 2837136 midfielders and didn't pay any attention to their shoddy defense and aging strikers (plus the Michael Owen experiment failed miserably). Becks finally helped them pull out an improbable title this past season.

Anything less than a La Liga title and at least a Champions League finals appearance should be a dissapointment for them. I only say CL finals b/c Chelsea might be just as stacked themselves.

Chelsea is flat out sick. Chech is even one of the 5 best goalies in the game.

I just picked him up after I dropped Rooney who is out till October. I like how they deduct points for transfers.

Wow didn't know that happened to Rooney, that blows. I didn't pick him thankfully. And I think I'm the only one who picked Gareth Barry (Aston Villa). He's a great player who is constantly overlooked by England for their squad. He scored a goal in the opening game vs Liverpool.

And on Van Persie:

"During the 2005 close season van Persie was accused of rape by a Dutch-Nigerian beauty queen. Dutch police eventually released van Persie without charge after they completed their investigations.[5]"

So who knows, haha.

He got a hairline fracture taking a chip shot in the area. One of the defenders trying to clear the ball hit his foot instead.

i'll be in the hole next week, my team totally sucked so I transferred almost every player, -60 points.....LOL

but seeing as I only scored 20 points last week, and out of 1.2 million players, I was ranked 987,000, I had to do something.

I'm rockin the #1 spot thanks to Steven Gerrard's rediculous goal vs. Aston Villa, and my choice to make him my captain.

Did you notice the "wildcard" option? You get to use it once, but I think all your transfers for the week you use it are free.

I know it doesn't help you now, but remember that down the road if you ever intend to make wholesale changes again. Won't hurt so bad.

It's a loooong season. :)

i had that one bad week where i made all those transfers and it costed me like 100 points, and i'm still yet to recover. If you take that away and average the rest of the weeks, i'd be fighting for number 1.
