Hello.

It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Ladies and gentlmen,

The Premier League Fantasy Football is back B)
Are you ready for the competition?
Will your team be better than the team of your forum friends?
We will find it in the season to come ;)

Thanks to people who were playing the game last season and hope to see you all again:)
@torellip @Bubbly @NatashaT @Just-Learn @Anurada @Shiny03 @peaceculture2 @aladdin @gerry @gam01hr @mohit_singh @pratyushbat @abhishekb9099 @ThomasJude @Ariemes @Indu07 @ahmedtawfik @nomad81 @nuurussubchiy @mouna

I would like to invite people who weren't playing last year:
@april @Zom @Lynne @mheredge @amatsuscribbler @Monik @nidhii @saraal @Hermine @soupmantra @Nippur @kindgnice @Dmitry @dope @Diakha @bigcheeseh @theDom
I have certainly forgotten to mention many people but anyway every member of the forum is more than welcome to join us to play the game.
The more the merrier :)

In addition to last season, 'the regular' LEON League, this season there will be an additional league, Head-to-Head league. In my opinion it will be the most interesting one.

Playing the game is completly free of charge and it is not that time consuming. Give it a try!

Now some instructions to get us started. Here they are:
1.) Create an account on the Fantasy Premier League website.

2.) Choose your squad- the best 15 players of your choice, or you could select the option -"auto pick". Then the system will choose 15 players for you.

3.) Join our LEON LEAGUES
Here are the codes:
a.) Code to join the regular league: 1281148-307488

b.) Code to join the Head to Head league: 1281148-307502(head to head)

Feel free to ask if you have some difficulties to create your account or if you any questions about this game.

A very important thing:
The first deadline is 11 August 18:30 British time.
So create your account, create your team and join our leagues.

I hope to see you there.

May the best player win.

PS, @Lynne, your feedback was useful. B)

    @Rema can you please explain a little more about the head to head league? Sounds interesting!
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,800 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @NatashaT

    Rema is on holiday for a week or so. Hopefully you can wait until he's back for your first head to head challenges.
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.

    Wi-Fi is on :)
    Head to head league is a league where we will play one against each other for every game week @NatashaT. You play with the same team in both leagues, so it doesn't require additional time for creating a new team.
    To explain how head to head league works, I'll use real example :D
    Let's imagine that the playing season is in progress and that players are @saraal @Zom @NatashaT and @Rema.
    For the 1st gameweek @NatashaT would play against @saraal, for the 2nd against @Zom and for the 3rd against @Rema and so on, it depends on how many players will play.
    Number of points in each gamewek will vary from 3(for a victory ) to 1(if it is a draw, when players have the same number of points ). There are no points for a defeat.
    For the whole season winner will be the player who gathered the most points.
    I have also an idea for a challenge here, which would be linked to Forum. For instance, before each gameweek players can define, on this thread , a challenge which their opponents 'should' accept.
    Real example again :D
    If I defeat @NatashaT I could challenge her to record herself while reading some tongue twister and if the result is different she could challenge me to write some comments on Forum's threads(it is not compulsory but would be nice if player who is defeated fulfills a challenge ).
    That's just my idea and I think it could be funny.
    What do you think about it?

    I hope that I explained it well :/

    You lost too @NatashaT. Welcome to the club. LOL

    I have got to practice my German hip hop skills.

    At least I beat @aladdin - just. ;)

    Congratulations to the top teams.

    Yes @NatashaT , it is possible to do and countless many times, but just before the deadline for each gameweek.

    Here are the steps how to do it:
    1.) After loging in click on the tab "My Team"


    2.) Then click on the shirt of a player to whom you want to give the captain role. Followed window will pop-up:

    Choose option "Make captain"
    Same procedure is for choosing vice captain, only difference is that you will click on "Make Vice- captain" in that case.

    3.) What remains is just to click on "Save Your Team" as a sign to confirm the things which you changed:


    4.) To check if you did it correctly just relog again and your new captain should have a C letter next to his profile.

    @Rema 'Head to head league' it is a fantastic idea, I am waiting with impatience on our game.

    You're not going to wait for so long @nomad81 ;)

    Here are the pairs for the gameweek 2 in our head to head LEON League competition


    My challange to @nomad81 is to make a recording of reading News Round Up 254.

    What would be the challanges for your opponents in this gameweek:

    @Rema OK, I think I could face the challenge if you could explain to me how it works.
