Fantasy Premier League: I noticed in the thread below that the EPL Fantasy League is now open. Since the league kicks off in only a few weeks, I thought I'd fire up a league for SportsFilter. Details inside.

Once you have logged in and entered your team, click on the 'Leagues' link you can find on the right of the page. Now enter the code 14824-41777 to join the private league.

I'm looking forward to finishing somewhere other than my usual mid-table mediocrity.

As Mexico said on their tournament bus, "It is time for a new champion!" And that new champion... will probably be me. Maybe. Or if God blesses me and curses the rest of you underserving SpoFites.

Oh, saw the title of the post and went to reactivate the old league. Now, reading the post, I see you've started a new league. In any case, the old league has been renewed and the three of us (plus holden and David N) are in it.

That being said, I just changed the admin for that league (the legacy league) from me to you, trox, so if you log back in you should see the Spofi EPL 10-11 league under your purview which you can do whatever you like with.

Do note the benefit of keeping it and deleting the first one in that anybody who was in it last year will be automatically (?) re-entered into as they reopen their user accounts. In any case, you are the admin of both leagues now. Your call.

Happy to see they finally added persistent logins, having to log in every week was a tad annoying.

+1 for using the old league.

David N is me, fyi.

I'm in. At least in Phnom Penh I'll get to see the early games at a reasonable hour.

I'll delete the first league and we'll use the the old league. Sorry for the inconvenience for those joining the original league.

The code to join the original league is 14824-52750.

I rarely hang around these parts nowadays, but I'm in.

In case you missed their newsletter, some interesting rule changes for this season:

We've also made some improvements in order to make the world's most popular fantasy football game even better:

  1. Saved transfers carry over multiple Gameweeks
    If you don't use your free transfer then it will carry over to the next Gameweek. If you don't use the saved transfer in the next Gameweek then it will be carried over until you do.
  2. An extra wildcard for the January transfer window
    January and February can be a testing time for Fantasy Premier League managers with the transfer window open and the potential of fixture changes.
    To help ease the pain of we're introducing a second wildcard which can only be used between Gameweeks 23 and 27. This extra wildcard will be available straight after the start of Gameweek 22 (4 Jan 19:30) up to the Gameweek 27 deadline (12 Feb 11:30). The current wildcard can still be played at anytime.
  3. Lose 2 points for an own goal
    A player scoring an own goal will now lose 2 points.

I was basically, relegated last year but since no one wants to do the 1st and 2nd division format, i'll be back in the Premier League...AGAIN!
