Fantasy Football League 2016/17

The English Fantasy Football League has returned to www.champman0102.co.uk (http://www.champman0102.co.uk) for yet another year. jawain04 was the winner in our league last year and won a cool £150.00 while another £50.00 was split between second, third and fourth place. Can anyone take the crown away from jawain04 this year?

It is now possible to create your fantasy football team ahead of the big kick off on the 13th August (only two weeks away tomorrow!). As in previous years, entries will only be accepted if you pay £5.00 in full.

Once again, we shall be using the Fantasy Premier League website for this competition: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

The above website is very simple to use. You will need to register an account (or re-register for those who have used it before) and then go on to select a team. You can then make as many changes as you require right up to the deadline day itself at 11.30 on the 13th August.

In terms of making your payment of £5.00, you can do so via the following methods:

1) PayPal - Send your payment to admin@champman0102.co.uk. PLEASE ensure that you select the option to 'send money to friends or family' to pay the £5.00 entry fee in full without being charged by PayPal for a cut. If you haven't done this and end up sending me £4.63 or whatever, then I will NOT be sending you the PIN code to join the league until you make up the difference. It's IMPERATIVE that the pot has an even £5.00 from each of you.
http://s33.postimg.org/aar9w3e9b/paypal.jpg
2) Cash - I am happy to accept cash by post. Please send me a Private Message if you need my address.
3) Cheque - As above.
4) Bank/Wire Transfer - Payments can be made from bank to bank if necessary. Please send me a Private Message and I will provide you with the relevant bank details.

Once you have made your payment, be sure to inform me of your username so that I can then send you a Private Message on this website containing the PIN code to join the Fantasy Football League.

Good luck guys!

316'sRegen
29-07-16, 02:45 PM
there's special choices to let you go 2 at the back.
bonus options below the team selection part. One of the other ones is triple points for your captain.

316'sRegen
29-07-16, 03:09 PM
Have you filled out the 15 players yet?
After that when you are picking which 4 are subs, there's 3 options below the teamsheet :ok:

AJ
29-07-16, 03:20 PM
yeah I did. And the three options are one time only, right?

never mind, just figured it out. Swapped in an attacker for a midfielder and it automatically switches.

Mark
29-07-16, 03:23 PM
Yeah, that's it, AJ :ok: You can use 3-5-2 that way or 3-4-3.

Struggling to find the rules section on the website, can anyone help?

I'm looking to find out if these three options at the bottom are available every week or how that works, and also just a general look at the points scoring etc.

ACossu
12-08-16, 07:02 PM
They are only available once..

Mark
13-08-16, 10:54 AM
Hope everyone has remembered to finalise their team ahead of the deadline which is at 11.30!

As it stands, we have 24 heads involved which gives us a pot of £120.00, barring any last minute entries or anyone who has paid but not registered in the league.

So I'm thinking we'll split the pot as follows:

1st - £80.00
2nd - £30.00
3rd - £10.00

Felix

14-08-16, 11:24 PM
So, turns out after being so into Redknapps Sun Dream Team, I actually downloaded the app and updated my squad in that Fantasy league and not this one. (Despite me joining the league here) ::confused:

I guess I have to wait for transfers now to change team?

Look at this pile of piss the auto picks came up with

drkshadow1
14-08-16, 11:29 PM
Ouch that blows!

Fods,

Under the transfer section you can play a special "WildCard" which allows you to transfer all players and inflict no penalty. We get two of them a season (unless they changed it!) it could be worth considering. Other than that you get 1 free transfer a week or can save up 2 free transfers but it does not stack any more so make sure you use them.

Fods
14-08-16, 11:33 PM
Thanks Doc, I get this though: To activate your wildcard you must be making enough proposed transfers that points will be deducted.

drkshadow1
14-08-16, 11:35 PM
Fods, Correct you need to make more than a couple (example if i have a really bad start to the season) i can remove all the players i have and pick a whole new squad. So it is best to make alot of changes if you want to use that.

You need to sort all the transfer in one go then use the WildCard.

Fods
14-08-16, 11:39 PM
All sorted, thanks mate :ok:

Mark
15-08-16, 11:20 AM
As felixsjo and Erkifino were late entries to the league, the pot went up to £130 which sees the prizes broken down as:

2nd - £30.00
3rd - £10.00

42 points for me, not brilliant. Especially as I had 14 points on the bench :lol:

Week one ends in 20th place for me, I can slowly climb my way up, hopefully!

After 5000 changes and seeing all my ex-midfielders score, cursing at myself and coming to terms that Hart is actually pretty much dropped from the City side after thinking it was a coy move, find myself in 22nd place.

Thought there were no ringers :doh:

I have made a couple of changes this time, Welbeck up front and took Y Toure out of the midfield.

edit: looking at it today though they are saying Welbeck probably won't play. Better just leave Joselu up top.

ACossu

Mark
18-08-16, 12:39 PM
Welbeck?! Do you not see the injured sign when you pick the team?

Joselu won't get regular games at Stoke, he never does. We tend to have Diouf/Walters/Bojan up front with Joselu and Crouch as backup.

Mark
18-08-16, 01:24 PM
Is he a ringer? He's been registered on the site for 3 years. I didn't send a PM out to anyone so anyone who picked this thread up were people who actually visited the site and viewed the thread themselves.

Fods
18-08-16, 01:26 PM
Of course he's a ringer, clearly registers left right and center to win money in fantasy leagues.

Can I have a refund please

Mark
18-08-16, 02:16 PM
Don't be so soft, you're only saying that because you messed up your selections to begin with :lol:

If it really bothers everyone then I'll just refund jawain to remove him from the league.

316'sRegen
18-08-16, 02:19 PM
Bring it on I say. :fencing:

When I finish ahead of him, spending around 5 minutes each week on my team, it will sting even more painfully to have spent days (weeks) on his team :lol:

Mark
18-08-16, 02:21 PM
That's the thing, I was top of the league for the majority of last season (majorly balled it up in the last 2/3 weeks) so it's not impossible to finish ahead of him.

fry78
18-08-16, 10:20 PM

Yeah he is probably on to win a good few grand on all his money leagues, some of them he has paid 20£ entrance fee!
He fairness it was known last year, when he entered that he finished 9th in the 14/15 season.

But last year he only finished 8,753 in a season where Mark was winning the league by a landslide and did a Rodgers Liverpool on it.

The site that most people get the same info from as him is http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/
Members get extra benefits of stats etc. (not a member myself as I find it is a bit of info overload, and use the site as a non-member and find it very informative)


For price changes Team Value people need to keep and eye on
http://fantasyfootballfix.com
and
http://www.fplstatistics.co.uk/

I find making your own excel sheet on fixtures is an easy way to play the game so you can plan fixture difficulty.
If you are more lazy then that however there is a website for this as well
called
https://fantasyfootballfirst.co.uk/team-performance/game-difficulty-checker-2/

Armed with these sites you really have no excuse looking at:

Form
Fixtures Difficulty - which means you can also plan rotation of players from your bench based on fixtures - normally this is done with defenders. But it can also be done with attackers such as redmond/Feghouli
Price Changes gives you a better team value as the season progresses - sell a player before he drops in price -get him before his price increases.
Out of position players - midfielders who are playing as forwards - example Redmond

Job Done.

Hopefully the standard of the league overall will improve, if people look at the sites I have mentioned and to paraphrase Alex "Knock Jwain off his f**king perch". :fencing:
Also Jwain got jammy with the Mahrez pen as a Vardy (C) owner I felt extra hurt!:target:

In cm0102 terms if you are not using these sites you are effectively playing as teams with a default formation v wib-wob tactics. Or worse still your goalkeeper is been played out of position!

19-08-16, 09:47 AM
You get one free transfer each game week so you can make a change before the deadline tonight at 7PM. Would ordinarily be 11.30 on a Saturday were it not for these blasted Friday night games this season.

ACossu
19-08-16, 10:20 AM
Yeah there's so much to it I thought never existed, apparently things like player value is huge and if you see someone who is starting at low value and you think he will gain form and therefore gain value - sign him up - its almost like stock..

I thought Hart was going to go up in value but shit, look what happened now :pound: :smash:

If you do not have the time to look obsessively like the die-hards. They would refer to you as a "casual" by the way!

I suggest that you at least look at the scout picks on fantasy football scout for a few minutes before the deadline of each gameweek.
For example see below it does not cost anything.
http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2016/08/17/the-scout-squad-gameweek-2/

This will at least give you some guideline of the veteran/diehard players thinking.
I would not be surprised if Jwain's does not drift too much from these picks over the season.

If you see a player picked there and wonder why he there is always a reason underlying stats/goals imminent/opposition are weakened. Example Capoue had a great preseason and was seen as a 4.5m "enabler" so more expensive players can be purchased elsewhere if going with a 3-4-3 formation.
Jwain had him in his team but benched him.
Jwain also has Gray from Burnley who had a superb preseason and scored a silly amount of goals.

Naturally these scout picks are not right every week but over the season they will be right more often then they are wrong. If you watched match of the day and see that some fella is playing well and was unlucky not to score you could pick him the scout picks may not have.

Eventually as the season progresses the phrase "template team" will be used the set players that most of the veterans have. They also use the phrase "differential" which means it is a player who is low in ownership with high potential different from the "template".


The major shift in the fantasy premier league game last year were the veterans use of the chips on the doublegameweeks (where a player plays two games in a week), This is where the people in the know used their triple captain chip/bench boost chip.
As seen below.
http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2016/05/23/tracking-the-fantasy-football-veterans-season-finale/

Anyway at the very least keep an eye on the scout picks/injuries to your players and the transfer deadline!
If you set aside half an hour on a thursday/friday before a gameweek starts you should do ok.

But If you want to set up a watchlist of players in the next week or so Sterling, Bolassie and Benteke are the players that people will be monitoring.

What's the verdict then?

Carry on as we are or refund jawain and wave goodbye?

Those involved, respond to this post with your preference :ok:

PS - Don't forget your transfers today ;)


How about putting into place something similar to BobMem's proposal a season or two ago that if he won it two years running (was it 2, maybe three?) he would stand down for the following season. Maybe something similar for others, so if Jawain wins it again he cannot compete the next season, and if he doesn't then brilliant!

There's no magic formula. If someone has the time to obsess over fantasy football then more power to him. It's all about form...

I think Wain's Wonders should stay as well.

We should just be thankful that a fella called Ville Rönkä from Finland has not found this league.
He is the ultimate fpl player who in the last 10 years has not finished outside the top 5000 and his highest finish was 90.:behindsofa:

He found the league last year, and left after a similar protest. I wasn't sad to see him go. Wasn't a regular.

One way you could passively correct this is to spread the money out more. Instead of 100/20 for 1st and 2nd, go for 60/40/20 1st-3rd.
I can't remember the split you actually went for, but you get the idea.
Alternatively consider using some of the money for a monthly prize. This can have a big affect on the end of season prize though, as even a fiver a month week knock £50 off your prize pot.

I've been running a league at work for years, full of casuals. Does it show? :)

Obviously we all may not be able to do that here but that is how we play and then split the money per month and then end of season prize fund.

per month i think it is 50 1st, 30 2nd, 20 3rd

I remember there was a fella called Trigger Lips who is a contributor on the fantasy football scout site that was chased out of the league last year because someone found his fpl triggerlips website and there was uproar. I thought it was a shame because he provides sound advice on all things fpl no matter whether a newbie or a veteran.

I just realised your idea about a monthly prize is not a bad one.
There could be a £5 entry per month for the monthly fpl prize (say four game weeks) and it could be broken down similar to the current prize breakdown.

This would keep interest going all season long with monthly fpl-cm01/02 no matter how badly or well people are doing it will allow for more variation of winners.

If Mark does not want to set a post limit for those who join maybe there could be a question testing the persons knowledge of cm01/02 to weed out the "to madeira's" from the Michael Duff's?

I thought I was very smart captaining Negredo with a 4 point hit. To hell with the stats I said if he gets a chance he will finish most of the time. Plus he got assists etc etc. Plus it was against Crystal Palace (H). He missed three chances and should have got a penalty which I assume he would have taken

I was even more annoyed when he blanked and my snodgrass vice captain scored 9 points with a 95th min freekick. I was thinking of captaining him after his international hatrick vut went with Negredo because he would be more rested. :redface:

I was then left to sweat on hazard who I knew most people would captain, but I thought that he does not play well away. Luckily I got that much right.

I was then left with three everton players williams, Lukaku and the newly transferred in Bolaisse. Thankfully they dragged me from the fantasy football abyss.

What a rollercoaster of a gameweek.

My heart might not take another like it!

Naturally Jawain gained points on me again this week which was slightly annoying but it could have been so much worse! At least he has only one wildcard left.

I watched the Arsenal game live on telly. Cursing Burnley's "Stubborn Defensive Dycheness".
Waiting for Sanchez to get any sort of space so he could get a decent chance.

Everything had gone brilliantly fpl wise for me up to that point as I needed Ibra to blank etc as I did not have him and Jawain captained him (he also lost his man u clean sheet).

Last minute corner - f**k a walcott assist more points for that Jawain fella...then I saw the Koscielny replay.
It was unbelievably jammy but I will gladly taken those points.

For those who do not know you can watch your gameweek points live on when watching "gameweek live" http://fantasyfootballfix.com It also gives your projected rank and tells you who got the assists and bonus points etc.

Not only that the Dublin Gaelic footballers won the all-ireland replay so all in all I am happy enough!

I noticed there is a Caoimhin King in our league, I wonder is he the county footballer from Meath? Do any of the Irish lads know his username?

First bad decisions I made this season
Out went Coleman Snodgrass
In Pieter's and lallana for -4 points.
All moves cost me 16 points and the annoying part is I was close to saving a transfer but changed my mind.

i brought gundogan in, didnt click confirm changes, left the page and after two days i forgot who I had brought in and i bought redmond instead of gundogan. the best part is that I captained sterling :)

Lallana in for Arnautovic was a poor move by me.

I had Walcott as VC again even though I swear I changed it to Aguero. Thankfully Walcott didn't play so Aguero got double points.... Phew!

Shitter of a gameweek overall though, had 3 players injured and 2 defenders with 0 points so I stay 18th. I am aiming for the top 10 by Xmas now.

Actually 76 (-4) wasn't too bad this week. Just wish I'd gone for Allen over Redmond on the transfers!

Dermo did well on the triple captain!

I had 51 which I thought was OK until I saw those above and around me

Still in 4th though

106 points, hello there top 3 :)

Mark
07-11-16, 11:23 AM
Wow, nice one Derm! Hadn't even thought about using the bonuses yet, apart from the wildcard.

67 points for me personally, 3rd highest of the week. I'll take that, especially after replacing Zlatan (knew he'd score!) and with Sterling not playing, it actually got me 14 points from Snodgrass coming in as an automatic sub!

Up to 15th, the plan to get in the top 10 by Xmas is starting well... 12 points behind Bev who has dropped dramatically since the start of the season.

Silly boy! Fortunately it looks as though others have taken up the mantle. You still have a chance though, plenty of the season left for you to get back on track now, at least you're still above me :D

If you're above me, you have a chance (of second) [emoji14]

Big gamble gone -12pts, will either fire me back up or I'll be finishing the season with a top10 scrape. Quietly confident that 12 can be recouped quickly.

Shocker for me - 28 points and drop to 7th

Mark

Horrific week for me too. Had 5 players injured/suspended so 3 went on the bench and took a -4 hit to make 2 transfers. Brought in Firmino and McAuley, latter was decent, former was awful.

I'm now down to 17th :(

Great to see Dermo topping the league :ok:

A pathetic 38 points this week and I'm down to 19th! I wanted to break into the top 10 by Christmas. Turns out I'll be breaking the 20+ place barrier instead!

The main balls up was to make Coutinho captain as he got injured. I also subbed Aguero because he was a doubt, Kane did feck all as his replacement.

Dermotron
28-11-16, 04:57 PM
No Wifi in hospital was a bit of a disaster. Not sure I'd have changed much mind you even though thought about McAuley for captain.

Redknapp69
28-11-16, 05:37 PM
Yep - I did Coutinho as well - knew I should have gone for Aguero or Sanchez :frusty:

Not the best week and down the about 8th/9th

i was going to transfer in McAuley and decided against it.

By some miracle I am now second two points off top spot after some questionable decisons. Getting rid of pedro despite him hitting the bar and nearly scoring a brace the previous week.

Team will be set after this gameweek barring injuries it is only a question of picking the right captain now.

I think the guy at the top is a fairly safe player he does not try anything to fancy.

He will probably save his transfer!

Mark

I think I have 4 injuries right now. 2 weeks ago, I had 5 :(

You've had a stormer this week haven't you Bob.
Sanchez, Kane, Benteke and Costa in the line up.

Did much better than the average yet I've dropped to 21st :lol: Only 6 more places to go until I reach the 'top' of the bottom.

105 points Bob :eek: Plus Gibson to play tonight too.

One of those gameweeks that happen once in a blue moon. 11 goals scored, 3 assists and the best part of 20 bonus points! Incredible.

In my other cash league I've gained 80 points on the (now former) leader, in a single week!

Redknapp69
06-12-16, 12:32 AM
Looks like with Boro's clean sheet I am 2 places to 6th :dance: :party:

Transfers needed though with Bolasie out for season and Aguero's :ban:

Cedric dropped completely by the Saints and had Amat as 2nd sub for a miss of 5 points. Firmino a big disappointed as captain especially as I'd toyed with giving it to Sigurdsson

Mark
12-12-16, 11:09 AM
Had Holebas sitting on the bench with 7 points here :(

I suck, it's official. Had a whopping 38 points and stay right where I am in 21st.

Redknapp69
12-12-16, 01:29 PM
Took a -8 hit on transfers but still had one of the best scores in the league with 64 points

Don't think anyone's captain choice worked that week this weekend

Up to 5th! - 1 point behind BobMem and 13 behind Dermo

Need to use these bonuses at some point as well - when do they expire?

Mark
12-12-16, 02:57 PM
The 3 bonuses you can use anytime. It's only wildcards that you can use once in the first half of the season and once in the second half.

30 ish points

Thought Costa was a stick on v Sunderland :lol:

Think BobMem and Janis will overtake me now - should stay in top 10 though
