Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Is this still open to enter? I tried using the code in the first post and it didn't let me. Hi Thomas We close entries to the League round about Christmas - so this year entries closed after Week 17 - it was mentioned in this thread. This is to prevent managers who have had no interest in the Leagu...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 30 My computer’s got the ‘Pickford Virus’. It can’t save anything. That was one of football's funniest jokes (honest)! Top result of the week from Grant Bucher with his Olympic Mayonnaise team scoring 81 pts. Luckily I just managed to avoid the low score which went to Joe Friar who got stuck i...

Re: ECF Grading Proposals

An utter waste of time. There is no ground swell opinion for either changing to monthly updates or a system that is incomprehensible to the majority of players.

Re: Counties Championship 2018-19

Leics beat Notts result I gather that Leics are entering the Open at National stages, along with G Man Does the MCCU still get 3 entries to the Minor? I assume Warks qualify if so, along with Notts & Lincs My opinions about the MCCU ignoring it's own rules are not repeatable on this forum. I have s...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

3rd Quarter Report - Weeks 20-29 When I said in the 2nd quarter report "As we're only midway through the season there's still time for a challenger to emerge" I thought that someone might come out of the pack to challenge the teams at the top. However just like the Premier League, the top sides hav...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 29 "It's this club, it's what we do, that's Manchester United." Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Solskjaer has now won 14 out of 17 games in all competitions, his only defeat coming against PSG at Old Trafford in the first leg of the Champions League. At one time United looked doubtful to finish in the to...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 28 If you are a loser in this sport, you are a loser also in life Claudio Ranieri - clearly earmarked as a loser in life! Well as one door shuts another opens - so goodbye Claudio and welcome back Brendan. Locally could it also be goodbye to the world's oldest club as HMRC issue a winding-up o...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 27 Of course, it's a big disappointment at the end Claude Puel As the ex-Leicester manager disappears into the sunset, we find a Chelsea goalkeeper who refuses to go anywhere. Several managers were caught out by the reduction to eight fixtures - Ben Edgell managed just eight points - whilst su...

Re: Division Three South 2018-19

There seems to be substantial comment on every other division but nothing on Div Three South at all. Anyway here is how I view the positions going into Round Seven Division Three Pool 'A' - Any of the top six teams could still theoretically qualify for the Promotion pool; Cambridge Univ 2 and CSC2 h...

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 26 I like very much to read novels. I like very much some writers. Maurizio Sarri - a man who will have plenty of time to read after this week! There was no change (again) in the top five -little surprise as only nine points separated their scores. Making ground with 86 points was Andrew Garsi...

Re: Counties Championship 2018-19

Lincolnshire slipped up in their last match against Warwickshire who must now hope that Leicestershire fail to win either of their two remaining matches.
