Fantasy Premier League Draft

Hi guys.

We all remember the glory days of XTPL, as well as the difficulty in running and maintaining it. It was a lot of fun.

Now the EPL website is doing a "fantasy draft" league, where a player can only play for one side. That was part of the fun of XTPL, "owning" a player and having that exclusivity. I did a draft yesterday in a league with 6 friends and it was a really enjoyable experience. I don't really like the fantasy football version, with budgets etc and everybody sharing players. I lose interest very quickly, but this seems way more interesting.

So I'm happy to administer a league for us here. You need to register on the website and what happens then is when the league is full (it can be between 2 and 16 teams), then we pick a date for the draft. The draft happens live, with the pick order "snaking" so for example of the 6 last night my first pick was 6th, then I went first the following round, then 6th, 1st, etc.

As its live once organised we'll need to select a draft date. If you cannot attend you can construct a watch list and the draw will allocate them to you based on targets and availability.

Is anybody interested? I can do this as a sign up.

So far we have:

TGO
Toni
Bill
Josedin
El Blanco
Nitemare

Count me in

One time we played Cagliari and before the game I asked him: 'Do you know the name of the centre-back of Cagliari?' 'No'. 'No?! You are not a professional. You have to know the skills of the opponent. You have to know the name of the centre-back'. 'Mister', said Ronaldo, 'I don't know the name of the player I play against. But he knows me'!''

I can't believe there are not 16 gentlemen* in this forum who want to play this game, the FIRST of its kind.

*I'm not saying ladies because there are no more ladies in this forum!
