  1. This is from this time last year:

    For members who have never managed a fantasy football team before, here are some pointers that might help you to pick your squad:

    • Spending money on attacking players tends to pay off better than spending on defenders.
    • Forget about building a properly balanced team. If the season produces 5 likely-looking right wing-backs then it's okay to have them all in your squad with nary a CB or LB in sight.
    • Although the BPL competition has 15-man squads, bear in mind that you'll only be playing 11 of them so concentrate your spending there and try to recruit your squad fillers on the cheap.
    • Experienced managers tend to adopt attacking formations with only 3 at the back.
    • Player values change in response to what happens in the transfer market and it's likely that two or three players will gain £1m in value by Christmas.
    • Respond quickly to actual events on the field. If United's Depay is deployed centrally and plays a blinder on the opening day, his £8.5m price-tag won't stay there for long.
    • In addition to the high-profile recruits who hit the ground running each season, watch out also for the usual crop of super-value players in the promoted sides.

    These are just my own tactics and preferences, of course, and other managers will want to approach things differently, no doubt.


    Hang on to your three special cards until you have a really good reason for playing one. They were introduced last season and I suspect that many of us could have used them better. Late on last season I racked up 140 points one week and I still had another 40 points on the bench but I had played my Bench Boost card earlier in the season.

  2. "Promoted to the Premier League, Middlesbrough are following Lille defensive midfielder Ibrahim Amadou (23 years, under contract until 2019 ). Eseentially, LOSC is not a seller, unless they get a big offer for a player bought for €2m from Nancy last summer."

  3. I paid a visit to my GP the other morning and I was his first patient. Actually, he was late for our appointment so I was able to see that he had to summon someone from reception to log him on at his computer while he introduced me to the trainee he wanted to sit in on proceedings. Then, during the consultation, I spotted how he was using the mouse to take him from field to field on his terminal, giving away totally that he has never had a moment's computer tuition in his life. Unbelievable!


    What really got me, however, was when he got his young sidekick to take over at the terminal and he started doing exactly the same thing... keystrokes... mouse... keystrokes... mouse...


    Just think what a boon it could be for the health of the nation if only someone would let medical professionals in on the secrets of the computer TAB key. :D

  4. wilsoncgp I have soft-deleted your two most recent posts but don't worry, they can be reinstated later if necessary.


    It looks like I was working on the clarification while you were ploughing ahead so I'll let you catch up on my post and we'll decide what to do after that, if that's okay.

  5. First of all, sorry about the confusion over competitions.


    We'll be starting a "oneBoro Forum" mini-league in the Premier League competition as soon as they become available. In the meantime why not head on over to the official fantasy football game of the Premier League and start building your squad?


    Old hands note that your existing account will still be active for the new season and I'll send you the oneBoro mini-league code in due course, via PM.


    If you are new to the competition, you will need to enrol at the PL site and create your squad. Then post your squad name here, in this thread, and I'll PM you with the code you will need to join the oneBoro Forum mini-league. (if you're wondering why we do it this way it's so that we all know who runs which squad.)


    wilsoncgp, dunno how you missed this. :D If you have a look at last season's competition you will see that member Curtis Fleming organised a paid league as part of our regular one and I added a column to the table to highlight who was in his league. Will do the same this season for your paid league if that suits?

  6. I'm in if its the official premier league fantasy football game

    This league is in the Sky competition. The official Prem competition isn't under way yet but I'll be creating our customary oneBoro league when it is. There's nothing to stop anyone doing both, though.
