    The Hideous Love Child of the FFUK and Football returns for another year of football frolics as the 'FF-UK fantasty football league' gets ready for the 08/09 season (Yay). Fasten up your shorts, on with your socks and .... actually this image isn't going to get any prettier - I'll just get on with it:

    [hl=black]FF-UK Fantasy Premier League Rules

    1) All teams entering must be FF-UK/JC Forums members.

    2) The team scoring the lowest point scores in a gameweek will be gamebanned for 24 hours. Furthermore, they will have to put up with the custom title, Football Loser, until the next gameweek. This is to encourage competitiveness between teams.

    3) In the event of two or more teams getting the joint-lowest point scores in a gameweek, the lowest ranking team will receive the gameban.

    4) All gamebanned accounts must fill in an unban request to be unbanned.

    5) The eventual winner of FF-UK Fantasy Premier League will receive a VIP-ship and colours for a time to be sorted out between halibut and myself. Most likely 2 weeks to one months worth.

    Like last years Registration process, if you were in the leagues last year you should automatically be put straight through. If you are new to the league this year (or having problems) the code you will need is 77099-20761


    [hl=yellow]Orn's Ball-kickers[/hl] are in ( accompanied with yellow socks) - I think I might do it this year!


    right, then ... :) x

    Coolio! Can I make one request. Can people please keep the same football team names or change their team names to reflect thier FFUK handle, as I don't know most of your real names and
    its a bit tricky to figure out what poster is running which team.

    Also, as we doing the Welshguy Cup this year? I suggested it at the end of last season and it seemed pretty popular.

    Oh, and I will destroy you all!!!!!!!

    Though rumors I have taken Robbie Fowler on a years contract is just a rumor....

    It runs in synch to the FA Cup.

    All the names are put into a hat and drawn out at random into pairs.

    "Cup" games for the FFUK League will be played via Premier League games a week before the actuall FA cup games take place.

    Who ever scores the most points between the two teams in the Welshguy Cup (via Premier League weekly scores) goes into the next round (to coincide with the FA Cup round).

    You might have to figure out how many rounds we'll need, depending on how many teams are entered (so the compeition may not start till the FA Cup 3rd for example).

    The winner will receive bragging rights and colours on their FFUK account.

    You could also run a League Cup competition if you wanted.

    And i'm open to suggestions about the name of the Cup, though I think the Welshguy Cup has a nice ring to it. ;)

    I'm in, but my team is subject to extensive change before the start of the season.

    Probably a lot of transfers gonna happen, so there's no point in setting it up in too much detail.

    Just hope Santa-Cruz and Bentley stay at Blackburn. If they both stay, I have a feeling my boys will have a good year.

    Having said that, Bentley I could live without. But Roque we gotta keep. I mean, have you seen how good looking he is!!!

    Compaire him to the Hammer House of Horror rejects that is the Man Utd front line. They should not even be allowed to even look in his direction.

    Its an insult to think that someone like him has been linked with a move to the front line freak show.

    Well, I have made my return to Management. After losing my position at Raccoon City, I have had to look for alternative work. I was offered a position and had to take it. So now, I shall be looking to take the title with the mighty Royston Vasey AFC
