so is the World Cup
it's time for the Premiership Fantasy Football
I want to do better than 39th this time - but I did beat Colin though
the rest of iliketrains in this time. Dave reckons he can still win even if i have a week's head start. like he did last year.
i like my team name. i think it's big and clever.
Who's putting the prizes up? Do I have to give away another of my cherished comedy hats?
Best team name ever.
withdraw from the running? I'm going to fill my team with Watford players.
I have a pink Hawthorne Heights wristband. YES.
winners get a free Trivium book
nobody's gonna want to win this thing
prizes so far:
Hawthorne Heights wristband
actually, let's get the emos in!
Right Said Fred cd somewhere.
the winner can have that.
it's in perfect condition and everything!!
lamest team name ever.
you've got til the opening day of the season
Raz your team appears to be wearing the away kit of my team
making a grand entrance.
I've gone for a different approach this year with a hugely strong midfield and a really shit defence.
hope none of my starting 11 get injured - my subs are poo
I'm in too.
I have no feckin' idea what I'm doing. Hopefully I'll beat bamos. :-/
I always start well and then fall away dramtically. I might pay more attention to this one though. A Trivium book!!
Who's in your team Theo? I want to laugh.

Someone call The DiS FA! Theo? cheated!
I know Henry's the best to get anyway.
I just picked one of the top guys from every group, then I divided what I had left by the remaining places to fill and picked a few with the lowest cost to allow me to pick ones higher up too.
I always picked the one with the highest total of the cost level I was aiming for. Then I put the four shittest ones in the subs.
Last time I tried this I failed brutally.
Maybe I should use logic to pick my team next time, rather than blind loyalty and pretending I know what I'm doing.
Your team looks quite good.
was that I couldn't really see how to get more money in order to transfer people later. This time I'll just ignore that and be happy with my bottom place. :D
on picking Adam Johnson...
"the new stewart downing"
where do i put that code?
on the side
or the top
I can't remember, but this season i am aiming for top 30.
but can i change my team after joining the league?
You can't see anyone's teams until it's all kicked off so you can probably change them.
Make your team the same as mine. That would OWN! :D
and ready to kick ass.
let's see how i do this time.
im hoping my star players do well.
im not even sure if half the team i've picked get a first team game...
i'm stealing someones internet to sign up for this, and i will win.
Or do Northern Internets not allow football or fun? It's all flatcap.com and whippetlove.org
I'm going to beat you all though!!!!
i seem to have gone for a similar tactic...
as they say in all good american football films... 'offense is the best form of defence'..
though that doesnt actually apply here.
i've gone for pretty much the same option ;)
I have absolute faith in all the people i picked at almost complete random. Sometimes i wish i knew something about football...
will generally hang around the lower half, sneak in for a top 8 finish, i reckon.
pretty much owns, although I'm not sure how I ended up with 3 Spurs players in the starting line up. Shevchenko is going to score so many next season it's unreal.
could go either way.
difficult to tell how he'll adapt. for top scorer i still think it'll be henry. although i couldnt afford to get him in my team :(
Henry in my team. Those sacrifices are 'defence' and 'midfield'.
yeah, i had to swap half the defenders i'd orginally put in for EVEN CHEAPER options, to get the strike force i wanted. Still couldnt quite stretch to henry as star striker though. I have gone for shevchenko. But I do see that as a bit of a gamble.
or should i spend all 100?
but had money left over, so got rooney.
is me. can you do away kits?
Just, liek, swap one player in your first eleven for a player on the bench in a different position. Simple.
charlton were quite good for a big chunk of last season.
I'd go for fulham and west ham as worst of those.
West Ham aren't that bad plus they're going to have more fire in their bellies this year!
I predict a good year for Everton. Charlton/West Ham I think are unpredictable, particuarly as Charlton have a new manager and West Ham are in danger of second season syndrome.
I have Lescott in mine though I might change before the start of the season. Loads of transfers still to happen.
I'm aiming for an improvement on my 4th place finish in the world cup one.
I didn't ask though, and you're stuck with me now.
My team is rubbish
PROLEFACT AFC - AC Prolio had match rigging issues so a jolly old 19th Century version have taken its place - and yes STILL WITH HESKEY!
Have you not learnt from last season?!
are you not bothering?
with my team name, EH?
Because you shouldn't.
'Vice Head' that I found confusing.
from Wigan and will be back to his best. Erm probably!
Be bad to be bottom of that.
I'm in. Crap name.
I sneaked into the top ten in the last week last year.
I feel that I'm exploring new levels of geekness, even for me.
compared to me though ;-D
Where's all this bravado come from, mister placid casual? You can and will be PWNT this time around...
Cause I'm not the one who's busily researching the Premiership and obsessed with changing their team all the time!
I'm gonna ZIDANE you anyway.
I'm going to Schumacher your Battison at TRUCK.
I just wish I'd been able to accommodate Nigel Reo-Coker. Oh well.
ive signed up but dont want to pick the team yet, do i have to do it now?
