An bhfuil d'fhoireann roghnaithe agat go fóill?

We have five teams and are looking for more. Enter a team no matter if it interests you or not. At worst you will have to listen to eternal derision of the experts. At best you will be able to deride the same experts for their lack of expertise. If I can register a team anybody can.

Roll up Roll up

It begins on Saturday. Get in there from the start

Oh now I'd forgotten about that. Is it too late for anyone else to join? I'm 4th at the moment but wait until towards the end of the league I should be on form by then.

Can you not join anyway? and be a monthly winner?
Think I read it somewhere. Re Nerds. Agreed. Wink

I don`t know but I`ve no problem with anyone joining late if they`re allowed. To return to the nerds issue I`m thinking about building a treehouse and only Johnfás, Seathrún, Edo and Audi are allowed to come up. Maybe cactus flower if she makes some rice crispie buns (note they`re not cakes).

This is good that it`s so close. Although it looks at this stage like Johnfás is a candidate for relegation Very Happy

I was reading the rules and it states that the automatic substitute should not affect your formation but instead of bringing on a forward to replace Tevez (it would have been Agbonlahor) they brought on Samba and changed my formation from 4-4-2 to 5-4-1. .......the sneaky bastards.

I'll have to watch out for that

I was wondering why you played that formation ,twas a bit negative. Did you notice that Johnfás had three strikers? The sneaky so and so.

I picked a lot of players who were 6 or 6.5 or so. And I picked a good few I knew the names of from somewhere.

Other than that my team is in the hands of Shiva Very Happy although I did notice that you can substitute people or change the sequence in which they get subbed.

Is there anything else I need to know how to be able to change besides their gear? Can we buy new players during the year or is the transfer window closed (?)

I didn't pick that formation the football God machine did in it's wisdom because I had Tevez up front with Santa Cruz. That's what I was whinging about.


Audi ....This explains how the transfers work
Transfers


After selecting your squad you can still deal in the transfer market.
Unlimited squad transfers can be made, 1 transfer can be made between
each gameweek deadline without charge. Each additional transfer made in
the same gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total at the next
deadline. Unused free transfers are not carried over to the next
Gameweek.

All transfers before the start of the season are made at no cost.
For teams entering after the start of the season, no points will be
deducted before their first deadline.

You can play 1 transfer wild card a season. All transfers made in the
Gameweek your wild card is played will be without points deduction. You
play your wild card when confirming transfers.

Any transfers you make will become active at the next deadline.

Deadlines


Any changes to your team (substitutions, transfers, captain
changes, substitution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline
to take effect for that set of matches.

So I am here in the MN League: Very Happy

Sorry - I was looking at the "Work League" - some of the jammy bastards in Software are up on 94 points! - Im 28th out of 31 in that league - only the Girls in accounts below me and its a close run thing!

The again Yours truly is the genius who blew half his budget on Shevchenko a couple of seasons back and kept faith with him until Christmas (which is a hell of a lot longer than Mourinho did!)

I'm no good at doing fantasy football but as I have been persuaded to enter a team into the competition I thought it would be fun to set up a league for the faithful members of Machine Nation to compete in.

Set up your team at:
http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

Nominated Charities:

johnfás - Christian Aid Ireland
anmajornarthainig - The Irish ME Trust
Auditor #9 - The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruely to Animals
SeathrúnCeitinn - Focus Ireland

PM me if you need the league code, I have now taken it out so that there can be a bit of privacy for people using their real name.

Johnfás could you pm me the code? I've forgotten everything but I'm convinced my team is out in the lead...
