But seriously, looking at this year's prices, it's going to be tricky to pick a decent squad for the start of the season. I could really use an extra £5 mil...

Be good to get a few more regular posters in there before the season starts. I'll hopefully be a bit more competitive this year. Gonna have a good look at my team on Friday before the Scouse Scum game and keep an eye on my team more through the season.

gareth booking his open top bus yet?

My rule of thumb is that (at least until the last 2 or 3 weeks of the season) you're not ahead of someone unless you're 100 points ahead, or behind them until you're a hundred points behind. Right now pretty much the whole league is within 100 points of the leader so it's still all to play for. And anyway, there's no bus, I just go for a bike-ride round where Maine Road used to be...

How's that half-and-half-scarf looking?

Hopefully the offender will remove them before the next deadline. If not, then he will be ejected. To be honest the sight of Van Dijk made me m ore vomitorious thatn Rashford which shows how things have changed.

It's his "Free Hit" team, so his whole squad will be switched back to what it was the week before, automatically removing Rashford. Looks like including Rags in your free hit team is a nice way of gaming the Citymancs League rules, then...

I hadn't thought of that. It will be interesting to see if his 'normal' team has rags in it. Either way it is probably going to end in a ban considering.

The answer to that is just the one - Greenwood.

Tbh, I'm really not in the mood for it, but I'll do it if Gavin doesn't stop the league where it is now.
What does everyone think?

I know it's nearly over and probably no-one cares much, but last week's score of 65 by Bacon Sané (niall mather) looked suspiciously good, so I checked, and sure enough, he has 24 points from his captain, Rashford.

It's worse than that, actually... he has 3 rags in his team, and it's been like this since he played his wild-card after the re-start - 2 or 3 rags every week, worth over 100 points in total.

The usual response is, let's give him a couple of weeks to sort his team out... but come on, Gavin, by then it'd be too late. Surely we can't let this slide...

Okay he's gone. Trust me Brendan cares that he is sinking below back again.

What all 3 of you should be more concerned about is that you’re all getting beat by a dipper! I thought this was supposed to be a a City fan league, ffs. If it wasn’t for Andy having another great season, there’s a good chance the fkr could win the league and laugh at us all. Citymancs for City fans, I say!

If I had Gareth's record, I'd be very disappointed to have little or no chance of winning going into the last game. We expect better next season.

Post by: gavin on July 30, 2020, 21:50:41
Well done to Andy who finished top. Alvin and Gareth put in good efforts to reach the top three. All three admin in mediocrity but Lee came out top of the three. Well done Lee but lets face it, we all should be aiming to be in the top three next season.

Title: Re: Fantasy League 19/20
Post by: bluebrendan on July 31, 2020, 03:21:26
Yes, congrats to Andy on his win, and to Lee for the not exactly difficult task this season of beating me and Gav! 

Roll on next season preferably without another lockdown hiatus.

Come on goat, get back in so we can take the piss.  :D
