    I've been looking at the transfer situation and apparently you can make 1 transfer a week without being deducted any points; can anyone confirm this?

    Oh, I've just noticed your selected captain gets double points too.

    Yup, them's the rules. You can also make additional transfers but take a 4 point hit per transfer.

    High maintenance, but once you get into the swing of it, I'm sure its all fine.

    Wow, all very confusing!

    It was honestly nothing I did; I actually thought that you were the Woodcutters.

    But all's well that ends well I suppose!

    Edit: you must have been 10th before; that's why I thought you were the Woodcutters after you saying that you were 12th.

    I'm still not too bright when it comes to using the subs.

    Sooo...can I sub players after the early kick-off match (in preparation for the three o'clock kick offs)?

    Cali, no mate. Subs have to be done by the deadline like the transfers, however if someone doesn't play in your first 11, the player you have chosen as your first priority sub plays instead automatically (but points don't usually show for a few days). this goes for subs 2 & 3 as well mate.

    Ahhh, now I get it. Thanks Kent. So the sub's deadline is about 11:30 on Saturday morning, right (oh, or maybe not, as there will be mid-week games)?

    I'm such a lazy bast. I promise I'll go and read the rules RIGHT NOW!

    Just another reminder that if you post your team then I'll add to it to the first post so we all know who's who.

    3rd place (Obi Wan Kenobi Nil), not shabby as I still haven't got round to reading the rules - Nintendo taught me that technique during the WC Game league :p

    The subs deadline for gameweek 2 (ie. today's and tomorrow's games) is tonight at 19:30 BST.

    So there's still plenty of time to muck up your team! :p

    I only have Dawson and Tonge playing for me tonight. I have a Sheffield United defender and keeper on the bench...but I have a feeling that they'll concede three or four tonight.

    Kentmonkey, you are forthwith banned from calling yourself a gooner - 3 (yes, THREE!) Spurs players! What's all that about?!

    Harumph. :))

    Heh heh! :o)

    I'm not one to discriminate against good players purely because of their club, and I don't dislike Spurs really either despite being an Arsenal fan, I've enjoyed many Spurs games. However I do find most Spurs fans bloody irritating with their constant whining about Arsenal, and don't focus on how good their team is but rather try to diss another London team instead all the time. Still same for lots of other clubs no doubt but just not for me, I don't follow the masses like a sheep and can enjoy good teams and good players no matter who they play from.

    Plus I wanted to give them a chance to be part of a winning team this year! ;o)

    (couldn't resist!)

    I put Essien in my team today, and made him captain, and he's got an assist.

    So how do the points work then?

    I got 40 last week, so far this week I have 34, however my overall is 48? Latest points are 8?

    Seems bloody confusing to me, especially since Schevchenko got 12 points himself.

    Isn't it a running total then?

    They probably haven't updated yet? The 8 will be from yesterdays games I would assume.

    Does anyone know if you can make changes to your team up until the matches are played (ie starting 11 and captain), or do you have to have them set by the deadline?

    Bloody hell, my team is crashing and burning after a great first day. I already want to switch it all around.

    Frustratingly, I made Campbell captain, and changed in to Essien at the last minute, figuring it would be another Chelsea steamroller. Campbell ended up getting 15 points, apparently.

    I'm not too happy that i've got no subs apart from my goalkeeper James for tomorrow but pleased to see Team Rocket sitting just below mid table, which isn't bad at all considering my piss poor knowledge of premiership football.

    Bah. I swap Barton for Bowyer, and then Barton goes and scores the winning pen against Arsenal. :/

    I'm sure it said if I put him in before X time then he counts. It doesn't matter, he still did shit for me anyway.
