We guys must make a decision about this game.
First of all, I think that we must keep in mind that we have to make decisions for the good of the game, the general interest, not the individual one.
I seriously think Hunter got assists that would have never counted in the Italian and the Spanish league, which gives an advantage to the English teams. Ghost World did a fantastic job, as always, but the problem is that the EPL source has a different system to consider the assists.
I don't mind to use one system or the other, but the problem is that the premierleague.com system is totally different to other sources. Ghost World himself proposed the use of ESPN, which has a fantasy game for the 3 leagues, and this could be a good source to consider the assists.
Even though I still respected the initial points given to Hunter Lionheart, I think that we should use ESPN from now to consider the assists. Why? It's easier to adapt the EPL scores to ESPN than to adapt the Spanish and Italian leagues to the premierleague.com system, because we don't have any source like this one.
In that case, Hunter would lose his game, although the final result do not change and Hunter advances anyway.
Please, say something about this as soon as you can.

When you said 3 assists - one legit and two iffy ones I assumed you mean Lescott and two others... I didn't know you missed Lescott's assist and awarded three phantom ones
Amma work with you... (click on player name for ESPN link)
=> clear assist
, no questions about it. Replay
(@ 3:50 of the highlights). ESPN agrees.
=> he hit Lescott in the hand for the penalty. A pat on the back for a job well done, but no assist
(only in football manager). Replay
(@ 0:50 of the highlights). ESPN agrees.
=> own goal from a defender. Cruel, but no assist
(been there done that... with Sneijder not getting credit with an assist for some of his shots/passes that went in off a defender 2 years ago). Replay
(@ 0:33 of the highlights). ESPN agrees.
=> The most ridiculous one yet. Sidwell hits the post from 2cm out and the penalty taker rebounds it in. No assist
. Not only that, HL should be penalized for having such a donkey in the team (I demand passage to the next round at his expense
(@ 5:45 of the higlights). ESPN agrees.
