I don't know enough players to be able to do that.
If you need any advice on picking players, Strilo, I can help you out.
I've never done a fantasy sports thing at all.... I feel guilty for considering one for football before I have done one for my first love, baseball.
Done my team. Looks quite amusing I'm not in any way biased towards one team...
Maybe I will take a look at this. My brother says Fantasy Baseball is crazy involved and takes a lot of time.
Never done it before (never been a fan of FM either) so I'll try it out. Do you think lol@England is a suitable teamname?
Do you think lol@England is a suitable teamname?
I've never done a fantasy football tournament before either. I signed up, though. Apparently you can't pick your team until May 30. Can I change players during the tournament?
I picked my team already. Weird
I picked my team too, though I think that was just for the friendly run. I'll be starting it up properly tomorrow, as yankee has pointed out the teams won't be official 'till then.
Yankee: I think you can change players during a tournament, though I'm not sure what the limit is. In fantasy premier league it is usually one free transfer per gameweek, anything else will cost you points.
Okay I will take a look at this when I get to work.
Yeah, I think the picks now are just for the friendlies.
Spike: Will there then a be "group" of some sort the we each belong to (like for the NCAA BAsketball pool), or just each of us against the rest orf the world, compare scores at the end.
Kind of important to know how often you can change players, otherwise guessing who will get far in the tournment becomes key -- and very risky to pick players from the teams in Group C (France, Italy, HOlland and Romania), each a potential favorite to win the tournament, each could get knocked out in the group stage.
Yankee, we're running two competitions. A league based game, and a Single Pick based game.
Not sure about player transfers yet. I'm going to ask the FF-UKer who ran the Fantasy World Cup game in 2006 how it was done.
Okay so what do I need to do? Go setup something at uefa?
Strilo: The game thread has been started in this thread with a walk-through on how to sign up and join the league and some tips on players to select
Deutschland vor! Noch ein Tor!
Yeah I'll be switching to Germany soon.
These new icons are great
What makes me really happy about Euro this year, is it will be on channels that I can actually watch at my currant location. Soccer rocks my socks.
I shall be supporting France this year
