Would anyone be interested in doing a funky fantasy football mini league type thing for the new football season?

I've done them for the last 3 or 4 years, usually with The Sun, so will definitely be doing it again this season, but don't have to use that one for this, it's just what I'm used to.

All we'd have to do is get anyone that's interested to sort out a team of their own, give them the details for the mini league, and hey presto! . Would anyone be on board?

I'll put more information about the different sites that do them once we're able to start for anyone that wants to know about the different ones, it's a bit early at the moment and their websites don't work

These are the main (and probably most popular) people to do this with, I'll post these now so they're there, but they aren't working for the new season yet..

There is no point really, people are up for it before hand, and think it's a good idea.

Come 10 fixtures in and no one checks again.

Trust me I tried it this season on here and snooker and it happened the season before.

Think we need to get this rolling. I've spent the last hour or so having a gander on The Sun and Sky Sports. These two seem the most popular two, so I was thinking do one of these?
I'm going to be doing a team with both, so not bothered which we go for.

I have completed (quite a good looking) provisional side with The Sun, Sky Sports is MUCH tougher than this one to get a team, haven't quite finished it yet.

Both sites have unlimited transfers until a few minutes before kick off on August 17th (season's start), both have apps somewhere in the interweb (although you can't get The Sun app, or register until August 1st, but you can still make a team and save it and make transfers etc. until then)

Haven't mastered Sky Sports one yet, don't even know how to change formation haha

On the sky sports one you should just be able to sub out a defender and sub in a midfielder to change formation. It's just the formations are a lot more limited. We have had an official fantasy football (on the premier league site) for the last few years but last year it went a bit dead and the thread was inactive, though that one has seemed more fair and easy to use than sky's version. Not tried the sun one and I'd rather not. Will wait till the link to join is posted before I start all this

Yeah I've done the formation lol, you just keep adding players if you know what I mean, I just added 5 midfield players for example and I don't think it let me have 2 strikers unless I had 3 defenders.

I think we do one of these two, but not too bothered.

Sky Sports only score points for Premier League matches, The Sun do it for all games, Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup and European competitions.

Yeah I'll join, I've already entered my team in the league so when the pins all set i'll enter it in the mini league too, if you'll let me?

You can keep your team private which is good on the Sky Sports one.
