    Hopefully, it'll turn out into one of those situations when we have all the football mad fans complaining because we're winning through a process of selection that is "Oooh, he's fit!"

    That would be very funny.

    Hehe, of course! Is that how it works?

    I have absolutely no idea how it works.

    note fantasy f1! 3/5 of the top5 are girls and no blokes have won yet. and they all proclaim their choices were based on fluke and or attractiveness!

    To be honest, I was actually just going to get Tek to choose mine for me

    But could Hunty write a comprehensive guide to this Fantasy Football thingy or send us a link to one? *hopeful look*
    I'm pretty sure this should answer all questions:

    Oh now there's an idea. I'll ask people to work for me, it's always got my DT work done.

    I'll check out the link

    Prediction of results:

    1. Happysunshine
    2. Meerkat
    3. deianra (only because decision of players was influenced by Tek)

    Lovely!

    I couldn't be bothered to read that site, can you choose players from your home team... or does it not work like that at all?

    basically, there are 20 teams in the premiership. and 11 in a football team.

    pick one person for each position from all the dropdown menus, making sure that:

    A) you don't have more than 2 people from one particular premiership team
    B) the total value of your 11 selections don't exceed £50 million.

    too complicated?

    Meh, the only players I know play either for Reading or Arsenal.

    I'm just looking through a list of players and my reaction is "Er...who?"

    :confused:

    Oh, well, as long as it doesn't matter!
    the bbc website do charts showing how many points each player have got over the season....

    just pick out those with the most points, regardless of their name. that's the best way.

    Hey, I chose them based on my knowledge of the drivers and teams, not on looks. I love formula one! And I was smart enought to choose Jenson Button over a certain Kimi Raikonnen!

    I have set up a UKL league just to see how to do it, so if anyone wants to set up a team and add to it, they can.

    You say that like it's a bad thing! *hurt*

    What if we talk about you, hmm? Would that be better - because I suppose you could fall into the catergory

    i don't think my fragile ego would be able to cope with being talked about.

    Who would be interested in doing this next season?

    It would probably be easiest to have a private league with the BBC (http://bbcfootball.fantasyleague.co.uk/info/friends.asp), you get £50M to spend on a team and we could hav it in a UKL league.


    Please indicate if you would be interested in doing this and if you have any other suggestions for how we do it, post them too.
    You stole my idea LH, I suggested that a couple of months ago in Ollies Fanatsy F1 thread (I can't find the URL because I think the thread got deleted!)

    I wanted to be chairwoman and everything...I feel really cheated now
