Anyone interested in joining the Guardian Fantasy Football League?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/fantasyfootball

It is free and the Guardian provide £50,000 in prizes.

Once you have registered online you can arrange to join your own private league. I thought we could start a Forum League:

I'd be definitely up for that. Does your contract with the Guardian permit us to use other FF leagues? :lol: :lol:

I had a private league in Football 365 which was decent. You had 20 subs for the year at maximum of 3 per month. This maintained interest as no-one felt out of it due to injuries etc. which can normally ruin most leagues.

If we'd enough interest perhaps someone could perform escrow services for a nominal entrance and prize fund.

You can find out how to enter below, and here are three reasons why you should:

1. It's free

2. There's a prize fund of £50k

3. Your friend's face will be a treat if you do better than them

Let's face it, winning (or at least beating your mates) is even sweeter when the game's so realistic. And ours is the most realistic fantasy football game in the world.

Why? Well, instead of picking 11 players, you get to pick 15, from which you choose your side each week. There are 10 different formations to choose from and scoring's more realistic too: there are points for saves, accurate crosses and shots on target as well as the usual goals, assists and clean sheets.

The £50k prize fund is divided into £25,000 for the winner, £10,000 for the runner-up and £3,000 for the third-placed player. We've also got £1,000 for each monthly winner and a weekly prize draw of a signed Premier League shirt.

Here's what to do to join in:

1: Go to www.guardian.co.uk/fantasyfootball

2: Click on 'Play Now' to go to the squad selection page. Once you've picked your players click Save Team to register - its free to enter.

3: Once you're on your team line-up page, click on Friends' Leagues and type the following in the Join a Friends' League boxes:

I will definitely be entering a team and will wait until closer to kick-off to do so.

Other folk who've entered a team may or maynot be aware that the team can be changed up unitl 16ht August 08.

Interesting names on the bench. I would think it is unlikely that any of them will get many games this season. Is this a tactical decision based on the transfer system?

More like a complete lack of funds left having blown it all on the first team! I have to play the long game as I won't have many opportunities to play about when I am in deepest India!

He has said he will field a team. But he might be getting second thoughts when he discovered that you can only have three members of the Manchester United team in the squad.

Andy Walker has also been slow to join in.

This is your last chance to register a team. After 12.00 you will be unable to enter our forum league. Also, make sure your team are all capable of scoring points. For example, Fabregas, Drogba, Essien, Owen, Viduka, Hutton, Arca, Mascherano, Bellamy, Dyer, McCartney, Gabbidon, etc. are not playing today.
