We have a little late-bloomer in the Fundesliga:

The Booming Bincas

She was a little late with getting her team ready, so she didn't get the first round of points, but we're playing for fun, right? :D

I will be laughing so hard if she's the one that ultimately wins it all in out group. Though she'll have a hard time of it... Hope you picked the right people there Binca! ;)

Losing one game is a disadvantage, but I'm sure she'll still be competitive. Besides, you get monthly standings too - so we can always look at month-by-month winnahs in addition to the whole season. :)

Oooh, Fox, eh? Might have to tune in to it, if I can find somewhere it is on. :)

If you catch the 'Ornz in action, watch out for Jay DeMerit; future US full international centre back, there. He really should have gone to the world cup, but sadly, Bruce Arena is a clueless idiot. Not so sadly, the clueless idiot is now no longer in charge, so DeMerit will almost certainly get called up soon. :)

Funny fact: I know DeMerit's uncle and aunt, vaguely. Sold 'em a RAV4. :D

Yeah, their Soccer Channel is stuck into Dish Network subscrips at the "America's Top 180" level (almost the highest). A phone call to any decent sports bar in the area should get you the info whether they can turn it on for ya. (Hint: promise to buy not one, but TWO beers!) :thumbup:

Will do. I think FSC replays most of its matches, at least the same day. Should get a look in the evening. (For Chelski, they repeat the same damn match all friggin' week... coh!) Btw, the Watford vs. West Ham is at 1:30 p.m., Central Daylight Time.

Hey, where's my RAV4?! omg :shock:

For you, your RAV4 is merely awaiting your $100,000 non-refundable deposit. Heck, I'll throw another one in for free. :D

Still trying to figure what the hell I'm doing (or is going on) in the Barclay's Fantasy Footzie league — I'm not used to working with the budget/money in fantasy games...

It seems player values are starting to shift now (ok, I get that), so apparently your team's value can change? You can see a profit, somehow? And buy more expensive players? Above the 100 million mark? Or do I misunderstand?

Also, you don't have to spend up your total 100 mil, if you don't want to?

Helpz,

As far as I know you are correct on both accounts... but then again this is the first time I've ever joined in a game like this...

If you purchase player X for 5 million, and he does well, his value will increase. At that point, you can sell him and bring in a more expensive player if you wish. Or buy a cheaper one and hope he sees a similiar value increase.

Above the 100 million mark? Or do I misunderstand?


Absolutely. Bear in mind if you buy a turd and his value goes DOWN, you've LOST money.

Also, you don't have to spend up your total 100 mil, if you don't want to?


Nope. Spend or save as much as you wish. :)

Ah! Then THAT's what I'll (almost certainly) do then...

BTW, Kril, your team formation is FUBARed.

Defenders, in general, will earn the fewest points. Playing five at the back won't score you as many. And sitting Gerrard on the bench is a complete waste of 10.5 million.

Play 4-4-2, 3-5-2, or 3-4-3. There is a definite advantage to playing more midfielders/strikes, IMO.

Of course, if you happen to have five defenders who are scoring willy-nilly, then that might justify five at the back. ;)

EDIT: seriously, get Gerrard and Bellamy on the pitch!
