I've just renewed the SpoFi league.

1. Select the 'Join a league' option

2. Choose private league

3. Now enter the code 326879-222878 to join the private league.

Good luck everyone! I'm Hamburglar SV, as per usual.

I tried to post this a couple of hours ago, but kept getting some strange errors.

LOL, Owlie, very good one. Right, flannel???

Oddly I loaded my roster a few days ago and was automatically entered in our league.

I'm in (London Monarchs FC).

I have no idea what I'm doing. I hoping to pull off an "owlhouse" and win this thing. Are all my players starters for their teams?

Let's find out week 1...

"Pull off an owlhouse"? Dear God.

I'm in as Spartak Ratanakiri.

Grum - to follow on from your comment on the league page (where, in the past, the comments have sort of not lead to any discussion so might as well keep the discussion in the spofi realm)....

If you don't know anything and don't know who is starting... maybe look at the "% teams selected by" metric and crowdsource the common knowledge on who is worth picking. That won't account for somebody like, say, Joey Barton who is in the top 15 most selected midfielders but is a question mark insofar as getting in the lineup due to the fact that, despite the offseason, he continues to be Joey Barton.

gspm: I saw that option, and made a few modifications. I also tended to avoid teams that aren't familiar to me, and are probably up from Championship division this year (and will probably get run over by the big boys).

Ta. No messing about this year. No sentimental desire to pollute my team with rubbish Birmingham players. Everyone will be hanging on to my coat tails!

Ugh. I saw that Everton was canceled, but the EPL Fantasy site was getting killed by hits and couldn't load up for me the last two days.

I'm pretty sure I had an Everton player in my starting lineup. I don't remember if I got around to ordering my bench players properly.

I'd just like everyone to look at the SpoFi league table right now. Go on, you know you want to.

First and last time in history, no doubt.
