Hello Fantasy Footballers,

Just a reminder that the transfer amnesty closes at midnight tonight so don't forget to make those last minute tinkers to your teams, especially if you originally picked Dean Ashton B) .

Any new people interested in taking part, you still have until the first kickoff on Saturday (12.45) to sign up.

Well I am all set. My final team is a state secret now until kick-off (very Sven!). Should be more interesting than Stoke now Pullis is back. Bore Draw every time.

And no Andy this year. I may be in a battle of one for last place...Oh well. Let the best person win (please let it be me :P )

Battle is joined

Well I'm really naffed off as today I went to change my rubbish team only to find that I can't and it has to stay that way until 30th!!! :blink:

So I have lots of ill players that I need to make very quick recoveries. King, Ashton, Carrick & Cech!! Oh well I just ‘start’ playing and the beginning of September.

I don't think it's too big a deal as starting line-ups are such a gamble anyway. All the players who did well last season are now too expensive and you can't tell who's going to shine this season.

There'll be a lot of transfers being made come September once a few games have been played. It's a long season and anything can happen over the coming months.

How we doing on this then after the weekend?

I've no idea as my team seems to have disappeared when I log in. I've emailed the Telegraph but no response as yet (almost a week). Anyway I can't access it at the moment.

Can my team still be seen on the VN Superleague? :(

Hi Mango,

Just checked and you are definitely showing in the Superleague.

I've got three teams in this year and my VN team came off worst. I think I've got about 30 points. My highest team (which had Saha has 44 I think).

What sort of weekend did everyone else have in FF terms?

I'm not sure it could get any worse. As I have Riise and Carragher who it has been said will be out for two weeks :blink:

I think I only have about 5 team members that can play, including Gallas and Dickov :ph34r: But of the other players some did score, I think about 15-20 points.

Mango = poinst are not posted until after 23rd August so you have to tot them up on guess work until then.

My VN team had a middling opening weekend. I think i scored about 30 points No clean sheets for any of my defenders (save Ferreira) or GK and Riise's injury will deprive me of a player until I can make a transfer after the 30th (?). On the plus side Zamora scored two.

My VN team is

Reina
LIV £3.6m
JA Riise
LIV £4.6m
P Ferreira
CHE £4.2m
E Eboue
ARS £3.7m
J Lloyd Samuel
AVL £2.8m
S Gerrard
LIV £5.0m
F Lampard
CHE £4.7m
S Giannakopoulos
BOL £3.7m
F Fabregas
ARS £3.6m
T Henry
ARS £9.0m
B Zamora


I am also playing another team this year n my usual Superleague (although annoyingly I did not realise you can't play the same team in two Superleagues so this one was only created today and will get no points for the opening weekend :angry: ).

van der Sar
MUN £3.5m
S Finnan
LIV £4.4m
E Eboue
ARS £3.7m
T Ben Haim
BOL £3.6m
Lauren
ARS £3.4m
S Gerrard
LIV £5.0m
F Lampard
CHE £4.7m
S Parker
NEW £3.3m
D Drogba
CHE £7.0m
A Johnson
EVE £5.7m
L Saha
MUN £5.7m

Shocking start for me - only 39 points and I'm second from bottom in the super league. Still, early days I guess :( .

Never mind Mel. If I had got my second team registered on time I would have scored 77 points in the firts week taking my team to top of my usual superleague instead of bottom (on 7 points). A school boy error over the rules as my brother keeps reminding me- although he scoffed at my choice of Zamora so what does he know :P

Thanks for that James - a slight improvement this week. My other two FF teams are both on 100 so a bit of catching up to do with my Norwood lot. I seem to have picked a right load of donkeys :unsure: .

I will be making a couple of tweaks to my teams after the internationals this weekend I think. Judging by the 'server busy' message I just got when logging onto the TFF website, lots of people are already making tweaks though!
