Also, could I please ask if Mods could kindly give this thread a "sticky" as it's here for the duration of the EPL comp into next year.

Thanks and cheers.
Done..

Gameweek 1 results are in - and here they are:

Bon Vivant (Mrs tiger_one) 81 - 70 Bozo's Ballers (Bozo97)

Benzeman da Tiger (WestsBenTigers) 40 - 74 Laroche Lions (tiger_one)

Beijing Town (tba) 58 - 64 Minto FC (Harvey)

Fibro's (851) 33 - 76 Tranquilo (Dazza-96)

Aldinga Allstars (JRD) 52 - 75 FPL FC (wt00)

Queens Park Raisins (Marshall_magic) 62 - 66 MANS (swag tiger)

So the table looks like this after the 1st round:


Rank Team & Manager Wins Draws Losses Score Pts
1 Bon Vivant
1 0 0 81 3
2 Tranquilo
1 0 0 76 3
3 FPL FC
1 0 0 75 3
4 Laroche Lions
1 0 0 74 3
5 MANS
1 0 0 66 3
6 Minto FC
1 0 0 64 3
7 Bozo's Ballers
0 0 1 70 0
8 Queens Park Raisins
0 0 1 62 0
9 Beijing Town
0 0 1 58 0
10 Aldinga Allstars
0 0 1 52 0
11 Benzeman da Tiger
0 0 1 40 0
12 Fibro's
0 0 1 33 0

Early days, like 37 gameweeks to go, so sure enough, teams are still being adjusted etc, in these early weeks of the comp.

Historically, so-called Fantasy experts have always said that it's better to trust established players early on in the comp, waiting for new players to find their feet in the comp. Well, try and tell that to all the managers of the many new players who performed so well, straight off the bat.

Special mention to MANS and Minto FC who each won a couple of pretty tight games, with other winners including Bon Vivant, Tranquillo, FPL FC and Laroche Lions.

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next week-end.
Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).

Just for interest, here are a couple of (what might be a zillion web articles about selections etc) for the next gameweek:

http://www.fantasyfootballgeek.co.uk/fa ... is-part-2/

http://www.thefootballblog.net/2017/08/ ... 2.html?m=1

Happy researching - and remember, you can have one free transfer per gameweek, or even let a week go by, adjust your players from within, and then in the following week - you can make 2 changes, if so desired.

Tranquilo (Dazza-96) 47 - 38 Beijing Town (tba)
Minto FC (Harvey) 47 - 27 Benzeman da Tiger (WestsBen Tigers)

So the table looks like this after gameweek 2:

Early days, like 36 gameweeks to go, so sure enough, teams are still being adjusted etc, in these early weeks of the comp.

Historically, so-called Fantasy experts have always said that it's better to trust established players early on in the comp, waiting for new players to find their feet in the comp. Well, try and tell that to all the managers of the many new players who performed so well, straight off the bat.

Special mention to Laroche Lions, Tranquilo, Minto FC and FPL FC who carried on their 1st round win with consecutive success into gameweek 2.

Although, it should be noted that all teams appear to have had lowish scores (44 being the average team score across the 4,608,508 fantasy players in this comp world-wide) - our leagues scores are showing signs of being better than most.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next week-end.
Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).

Beijing Town 37 - 49 Laroche Lions

Fibro's 49 - 32 Benzeman da Tiger

Aldinga Allstars 35 - 47 Minto FC

0 0 3 99 0


Well, Gameweek 3 is done (only 35 more to go!).

And the transfer window is finally going to close this week, so teams should be a bit easier to choose from when the ins/outs are settled.

This round, Tranquilo (Dazza-96) had a win over Queens Park Raisins (Marshall_magic) 63 -55 in a big scoring match, but all match-ups were pretty competitive (the EPL fantasy comp average this round was 43, so our teams were better than most!)

Tranquilo (Dazza-96) has taken the lead in the league from (Laroche Lions (tiger_one) with Minto FC (Harvey) all locked together on 9 points, with a cluster of following teams already having scored at least one win as well.

Bozo’s Ballers (Bozo97), Beijing Town (tba), and Benzeman da Tiger (WestsBen Tigers) round off the league, each waiting to open their scores for the season.

All up, there are 4,796,507 fantasy players in this comp world-wide - our leagues scores are showing signs of being better than most.
Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!

And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next week-end.
Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.

Good Luck to everyone in your trades (or not!).

Just a heads-up:

No EPL this weekend.

It all gets back to normal next week, when all the dust settles at the end of Transfer Window chaos.

Gameweek 4 results are in - and here they are:

Gameweek 4
Laroche Lions 40 - 42 Bozo's Ballers
MANS 31 - 26 Bon Vivant
Blanks United 51 - 17 Queens Park Raisins
Tranquilo 46 - 47 Aldinga Allstars
Minto FC 59 - 47 Fibro's
Benzeman da Tiger 72 - 35 Beijing Town


So the table looks like this after gameweek 4:

Rank Team & Manager Wins Draws Losses Score Pts
1 Minto FC

4 0 0 217 12
2 Tranquilo

3 0 1 232 9

11 Fibro's

1 0 3 152 3
12 Beijing Town

0 0 4 168 0


Well, Gameweek 4 is done and dusted.
And WOW!!
This round has had some highlights!

Like, Benzeman da Tiger (WestsBen Tigers) scored the highest round score of the gameweek with 72points;
Aldinga Allstars (JRD) had a mere I point victory 47-46, over league leader Tranquilo (Dazza-96) who still remains on top on averages;
Bozo’s Ballers (Bozo97) and MANS (swag tiger) had reasonably close victories as well, and it looks like (at this stage) that Beijing Town (tba) is setting the league field an early head start.

Ladder-wise, Tranquillo leads the league on averages, albeit sharing the league tally points (9) with Laroche Lions, Blanks United and MANS.

Still, this league is still way early in the comp, remembering that it will extend overall to 38 weeks in total; so heaps of FUN or Luck or TALENT to reveal itself over the time to come!

All up, there are 4,964,809 fantasy players in this comp world-wide - our league’s scores are showing signs of being better than most.

Congrats therefore to everyone - just keep it up!
And now for the best part: we each get to do it all over again effective next week-end.

Just try to remember, the big thing is to try and get your team research done reasonably early, with transfers etc done before the first game of every round to get the best chance of more points.
