Barclays Fantasy Premier League Challenge

Recommended Posts

Invitation for a free competition which starts on the 17th August. Warning it can prove addictive and time consuming :huh:   

 

Ironstrong members only and the winner gets bragging rights as the resident expert until next season. Message me and I'll give you the access code.

 

To join visit https://users.premierleague.com/PremierUser/account/login.html  Log in if you have played before or Register if new to the game.

 

Select your 15 players, don't worry you can still buy and sell players until the first transfer deadline as per the Fantasy Premier League help page

 

Select Leagues then join a  Private League called Ironhide's

 

For newbies, here are a few pointers:

 

1. Pick defenders that score goals/make assists or that play in teams that don't concede many goals.

 

2. Attacking midfielders are good value or midfielders that play as forwards.

 

3. You can play a 3,4,3 formation with only three defenders.

 

4. You can select a couple of cheap players like a reserve goalie that sits on the bench.

 

5. When selecting you can filter on total points, value etc to compare players.

 

Good Luck  :D

I'm in - never played it before! Just set it up. Also, someone should make a 5-3-1 line-up if they get a guy sent off ;)

 

Edit: It says I need a league code of some sort - and Ironhide's doesn't work. Any ideas?

Count me in. I will take ages selecting my team, which will look perfect and unbeatable, until after the first game of the season when I will be thinking what pile of poo I have selected.

Hi John, Nje and Steve,

 

I will pm the code to you in a minute. Just follow the instructions above.

 

Neil is already entered and hopefully Simon will join now. Plenty of time before the season starts.

Reminder, Game Week 1 Chelsea and Aston Villa play twice but they don't play in Game Week 3. Some players could earn double points in week 1.

Nice teams guys, always interesting to see how popular RVP is. I think Bale is a waste of 12 million if not playing.

I thought I had made a bunch of transfers on Friday, but I didn't confirm them I guess. Going to sacrifice some points this round to get the team I want.

Early days.

 

Bloody Anelka not being available for me, I was banking on him for game week 3 as I had 3 Chelsea players for week 1.

Simon those 5 defenders gave you an awesome score this week.

 

I like making my transfers early in the week before prices go up but I should have waited because of all the loaning and late transfers that happened today, Ozil, Eto, Lukaku, Fellaini, Moses etc.

What's annoyed me is that in my head I could have sworn I picked Sturbridge, so was pleased to see him scoring...then I check team and he's not there :-(

Neil, that happened to me in the first week, I forgot to confirm my transfers. All the guys I wanted in did awesome haha. Anyway, really glad I picked Sturridge, and really glad he's doing well! Liverpool top of the league ;)
