First time of trying Fantasy, So here is my team, any suggestions or tips would be b gratefully received. My team is . De Gea, stekelenburg, Otamendi, Monreal, Jagielka, David Luiz, Van Dijk, Dier, Matic, Coutinho, Wanyama, Sanchez, Gayle, Rooney, Kane. Yeh there are three injured players there but here's hoping they are fit before season begins. Comments please.

Otamendi is a risk given City's defense. So is Van Dijk as he isn't playing with the first team. It's generally a good idea to avoid defensive midfielders as they really don't bring many points. So steer clear of Matic and Dier. And Sanchez too with all the transfer speculation around him

Go for someone like Willian or Zaha. I feel both of them will be good picks.

Hey Ed042. You were going to give a semi-detailed explanation of how this whole fantasy league thing works. I've never been involved in one so would be keen to hear before I sign up.
Cheers.

17 Jul 2017 14:31:37
i went for :

forster/ foster
Monreal/ Hunemeir/ lascelles/ Baines/ Yedlin
Mane/ Couts/ Alli/ RLC/ Ritchie
Firmino/ Aguero/ King

Cheers what you think?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 21:29:11
Mine are:
Cortouis/ Stekelenburg

Bellerin/ Vertonghen/ Morgan/ Targett/ Monreal

Atsu/ Coutinho/ Redmond/ DeBruyne/ Sigurdson

Kane/ Chicharito/ Solanke

Any advice?

26 Jul 2017 01:37:08
Sorry for the late reply.
Couple of things. Be on the lookout for injuries. Both Lascelles and Ritchie have picked up minor knocks. And ofc Mane may not start the first few gameweeks because of his injury.
Forster/ Foster seems to be a good combo for the opening GW's.

Your team actually looks quite good. Though I believe it's better to have two 4.5 goalkeepers and rotate rathee than have just the one and forget.

14 Jul 2017 13:27:10
Here is a basic guide on how to set up your team.
First of all go to the site at premier league fantasy

There you sign up. Next comes the choosing a team part.
You have 100 million to choose a squad of 15 players. 2 Goalkeepers, 5 Defenders, 5 Midfielders and 3 Strikers. You cannot choose more than 3 players from one team although it's advised to not go for more than 2 from each so as to maintain an even spread.
If you have doubts or questions regarding which players to select you can post them here.

Next to join into the league go to Leagues -> Join a Classic League and enter the code of our League which has been 'stickied' on top of the page.

As for the scoring rules you can look them up on the official web site. You'll be allowed one transfer a week.

Cheers and have fun playing all.

cheers bro.

{Ed042's Note - You can post your team when you're done with it.I'll give some suggestions. }

14 Jul 2017 09:17:40
So how's everyone team looking as of right now?
Any players you feel are a must have? What formation is everyone's going with?

For me, it's
Forster Foster
Milner Lindelof Bertrand Hunemeier Rangel
Pedro Coutinho Ozil Knockaert RLC
Benteke Firmino Lukaku

Will be playing a 3-4-3 to start off with.
Personally feel that Milner is a must have. I think he'll be the highest scoring defender. Also Pedro might prove to be a bargain at 8 million. Had Salah initially but think he might be a risk at the start of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 14:15:17
Hi Reet hope you good.
I initially had
De gea/ schemical as GK

Vertonghen/ Alderweireld/ Azpilicueta/ Bertrand/ Mawson as defenders

Henderson (c) / Alli/ Mane/ de bruyne/ Joe Allen as midfielders

Firminho/ Iheanacho/ Robson Kanu as strikers

I do it first time so have no idea play classic 4-4-2.

{Ed042's Note - Some suggestions mate
1- I think you're spending too much on defense. It's generally a safer bet to spend more on midfielders and forwards and go with a 3-4-3 or a 3-5-2
2- Defensive midfielders like Henderson aren't really a good choice because they don't score that much and get only 1 point for a clean sheet
3- I think to succeed you really need to have one top notch striker like Kane/Lacazette/Lukaky up there. }

This is a big ask as its not a rumour.
Calling all football fans to help support me at the life changing time.
My name is Paul Clark. On the 31st May I had to have my left leg amputated above the knee after a long year and half battle with bone infection. As you can imagine this has been a life changing time for me and the support I have received from family friends and the community has been overwhelming.

I want to give something back to the community have a organised a 65 mile bike ride for a local group and have chosen Suffolk Stars cheerleading and gymnastics in MILDENHALL.
Suffolk Stars can only achieve their goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of the public and without these donations the children wouldn't be able to progress in what they achieve.
I write to you today to ask for your support and if you would consider a donation to my cause to raise as much as possible. My event is being covered by local newspapers and businesses are donating.
I have set up a just giving page where you can donate or if you would like to donate another way I'd love to hear from you .
Justgiving.com/ crowdfunding/ paul-clark-532
Thanks you for your time and hope you can help support me.

Well unlucky Wales, your team, fans, manager and all involved deserve to be very proud and I am sincerely sorry your tournament is over, been a pleasure to watch your story.
From an Englishman, I tip my hat to you all.
A great show in memory to the legend Gary Speed.

Best if luck to wales and all their supporters tonight. I have Portugal in my work draw but would order to see Wales win. 😁.

England have played and beaten the four teams in the semi finals within the last 12 months. Why are we incapable of playing our best football in major competitions : (

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2016 17:39:26
Your opposition reserve their best football for competitions.

06 Jul 2016 22:11:41
They believe the hype rather playing up to it!

02 Jul 2016 20:04:47
Guess where is Joachim Low is touching and smelling today?

02 Jul 2016 11:42:26
Well done Wales, totally deserved win and congratulations on reaching semi final, I am Scottish but was so proud of Wales, great team performance, great management, great fans, I hope your team go all the way, you have belief in yourselves, your desire to win is unquestionable, Everyone in the UK should be willing you on.

01 Jul 2016 21:59:43
Big up to Wales well done delighted for them. Ellis that is how its done 😂😂😂😂😂.

02 Jul 2016 11:26:36
I am not a Welsh but an asian.
I was hoping at least any of the England, Wales, Ireland, North Ireland will win.
It is almost there and hope Wales will continue to give everyone the surprise and that if you dream long enough, regardless the time, it will one day materialise. Hopefully this is the year.
And I fully agree when someone said "this is for Gary Speed". It should be.

01 Jul 2016 21:15:51
Credit were credits due Chris Coleman has done some job with the Welsh. They are everything England aren't. Passionate and composed and playing with belief and no fear. Maybe the FA can take note and recruit a manager who has played top level football for both club and country.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2016 22:18:28
As a Welshman I don't think anyone should underestimate or forget the person who started the team on this journey and is watching over the Boys.

01 Jul 2016 23:27:27
Nice sentiment aggerdo. Rip GS.

02 Jul 2016 09:48:48
Chris Coleman has done a great job with this group of players and a huge amount of credit goes to him, but let us not forget that continued the work started by Gary Speed. I don't know what sadness in his life caused Gary to go down the path that he did, I bet he has a big cheeky grin on his face right now. RIP Gary and get ready for the final after they beat Ronaldo's crew on Wednesday.

02 Jul 2016 17:40:14
Great comment Aggerdo and a great sentiment to a great man. RIP Gary Speed.
