Fantasy Football 2012/13

Postby Sly Boots » Sat Jul 30, 2011 7:05 am

Set up a league for the forum if anyone's interested:

577498-152498

http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

Hope to do better than my miserable showing last year. Spuffing 90% of my cash on three players then filling the rest of the slots with relegation-fodder goons is a pretty safe strategy, right?

Sorry the league name is so Ronseal, all the puns I could come up with were super-gay...

Anyone else find they have to log in each time they go to the site (obviously not after logging in once) and it doesn't remember your log-in? I'm in Opera and password manager has the password, but it doesn't come up as an option to fill in...

The website has changed for the better. Is nacho still here? She shat on us all last year.

Yeah, Nacho kicked our asses last year. Got my team made up, some hopefuls and some I just can't play without.

For some reason I'm entered into two Preys World leagues, and only one of them is the one I set up :?

In any case, only a handful of people signed up thus far, and matches start this Saturday, so get those teams entered people!

I can never remember if I made a team for the previous season as I always seem to lose interest after roughly a week. So here I make my annual resolution to pay more attention this year!

just so people know, I'm not just a mentalist; I like to make these things a challenge so I've imposed a rule on myself of not using any players from the top six sides. On paper I think I've done pretty well...

I didn't use any Chelsea, United or Spurs players - their players just seemed really expensive and wasn't entirely convinced by how often some of them would play after summer acquisitions - Nani, for instance.

I've pretty much changed half my team every day for the last week, but at the moment I don't have any player worth over £9.5m, with the rest being around the £5m-£6m mark.

In six years I've only had one decent FF season, though, so I've probably done entirely the wrong thing.

Oh, and £10m for Carroll? :lol:

I usually do pretty well. Expecting big things from Taraabt and Hoolahan - both goalscoring midfielders in teams that will be largely playing to their strengths. Expect both to pick up a decent amount of points. Also Bent, Odemwingie and Kenwyne Jones up front should get a solid amount of goals. Expecting mid-teens from all three. Shane Long is a great signing to play alongside Odemwingie. I think the latter will be for this Hodgson side what Zamora was for his Fulham.




Hoolahan will be this season's Charlie Adam, I think. Expect Norwich to go down, but him to move to Spurs or Villa or someone like that at the end of it all.

Ha, you may see a few similarities in my team, Adam.

Edit: Or not, after late change of heart on Taarabt.
