    Anyone interested in Fantasy Premier League?
    I'm interested in having a rip this year, if anyone else is keen!

    I thought FPL was the Fantasy Porn League!

    Either way, I'll pass, thanks!

    I'm also playing through the Premier League website, have no idea what i'm doing, but might make the footy a little more interesting. Thanks to the small comp we had going a couple of weeks back for the Tour, i found cycling a little more interesting.

    Not sure IWR? It's my first crack at it and still trying to make my way around the site, but i'd say if the games have started that it could well be.

    Also my first crack at it as well, been playing a bit of soccer lately so I'm keen to get right into it.

    Ended up with this team in the end. Who'd you take?

    I'm on my phone at the moment but i'll have a squizz and give you a run down. Half the buggers i don't know, went off stats from last season to give me a base to work off.

    If you have any mates interested see if they want to join.
    I think we're going to be pretty thin on for numbers, so the league I've set up is just O/A points.

    Just a reminder folks that there is a league in the FPL under SCC, come and sign up it may keep the off season blues away.

    Sounds good to me, as i have less idea about the Premiere league than i did with the Tour, I will need any advantage i can possibly get. lol
    Still trying to get my head around the scoring and the site.

    It's changed a bit from last year but general rules still same. Will let you know the tips I've come across over last few years later. Got to go to work. No rest for the wicked.

    Early start bloke.
    I'm taking a break today to look at some land.
    Look forward to a little insight into the way this game can be played.

    Gotta watch the weeks when teams play twice due to champ league, europa, etc commitments. Can be huge up or down. Defenders from the top five teams for clean sheet points, Good fwds from any team - no clean sheet points to worry about losing, watch the match ups for the week when selecting side as well. Ie if you have def playing against man u/city chelsea etc pays to bench them. Again clean sheet points are no 1 in Def and for goalies. Good luck will send my team through to you later today for a squizz.
    You will love the trading system it would be great in Sc, just takes time to work out your theory and then weighing up if "buying" an extra trade that week will pay for itself ie: 4 pts more than who you sold. It's a really good structure and means I get to watch epl every weekend for 6 months.
    Later.
