If you have (or get) a squad at FPL it's not too late. Just announce your squad name in here and I'll PM you the league code.

 

Just seen this... Can I still join? I'm guessing it's on the official Premier League Fantasy Football website?

J.T. Have a look at the opening post in this thread and check your PMs. It's your FPL team name that we need. ;)


It's okay, I see Debuchy Fanni will be included in the FPL's next update.

The new season is off to a good start with 28 goals, 2 clean sheets and some big names getting on the scoresheet.

Raf smog is the opening round's top scorer with a handsome 80 point tally, a score helped along by triple points from captain Aguero. Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, MattyBoro has the dubious honour of collecting the season's first wooden spoon for his unspectacular 25 points. That's really not too bad a  score in the opening round and things can change very quickly in this competition. Judicious use of a wild card can see a manager start romping up the table and - for me - much depends on picking the right players from a*** the first round's best performers.

 

New FF managers might be tempted to keep their wild cards in reserve but old hands know that it makes a lot of sense to get in good and early on the emerging bargains.

 

The paid league

A '*' appearing in the '£' column on the right-hand side of the table indicates that the manager also competes in the "oneboro Paid league". Unfortunately, three of the paid league managers still haven't joined the "oneBoro Forum" league and it would be a big help administratively if they would do so soon. The teams still to be entered in the free league are Cabbage (73 points), Gettin' that bread (45) and maximum boingy force (31).

45 points in week 1 seems pretty poor, hopefully quickly gets better.

I collected 43 but I'm not at all worried. It's likely that there's another 2,200 or more points to collect before the end of the season so there's lots of scope for things to change.

    • In his Defence, “Believe” is more auto-tune than it is Cher 😂
    • I didn't say it did. We had a better squad, and more investment than them, they still cheated to get the squad that they did have. Cheating doesn't necessarily make you better than somebody else, it just closes the gap. Derby indisputably cheated, and they finished above us because they cheated.  Waghorn, a player they breached FFP to sign ahead of us, scored 5 goals that led to two wins and two draws. He assisted 2 goals that led to a win and a draw. He also scored another 4 goals and provided 1 assist that helped lead to wins, but weren't integral to them. They finished above us by 1 point, and a player they cheated to sign was directly responsible for at least 12 of their points that season.
    • I would love to attend this if it happened to fall on when i was next in Middlesbrough. Unfortunatley living just outside of Brighton makes the journey a little difficult but i would be very up for this!
    • So important.  Wilder totally justified in his comments about Crooks being first choice and Payero having that as a barrier.  But the importance of team spirit and bond will be crucial.  Injuries/suspensions will likely come into play and feel for the first time in a while we are trying to ensure we have cover in all areas of the pitch that have the attributes we highlight as being required for them. 
    • I wouldn't equate the difference between our combined abilities from season start to end, within our club from the top down, to being like they were on performance enhancing drugs compared to us. They cheated but I don't think that suddenly made them or their squad in any way better than ours. That summer window was quite possibly the worst we've seen since relegation, too. There is so much about that year that fills me with dread to think about because we handled it so badly from start to end. Derby spending beyond their means didn't, or perhaps shouldn't have, affected us anywhere near as much as we seem to claim it has.
