1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cower in fear.


    I like the choices on the pitch - particularly the back four, but I'm not sure I'd want to rely on your subs too much.

    As much as I would like to post a picture of my squad, I'm afraid that I'm a bit too technologically challenged at the moment so I will just list my players:

    Goal: Reina, back up Brown
    Back Four: A Cole, Woodgate, Terry, Skrtel, back up Foley
    Midfield: Park, Eboue, Gerrard (C), Bale, back up Song
    Forwards: Drogba, Bent, back up McFadden

    I would also like to preface this season by saying that I did not read the rules nor have I ever done this before so I have no idea if my team will be amazing or pathetic. Here's to having fun and hoping for a good result!

    If Bent shows as good a form as last year, and Drogba recovers from injury quickly you've got a very strong attack. Gerrard scored well last year despite not being on form, if he's on form this year you should be getting a good few goals.

    I'm not sure if that's a compliment. [​IMG]

    It took me a minute to spot that too.

    Looks pretty balanced. I think Saha is going at a bargain price for a striker with a lot of potential.

    Based on last year's performances that looks pretty solid (well I've gone with some of the same players [​IMG] )- your only real concerns are how the transfer situation effects Fabregas & Milner....
    I was pretty sure that Cesc is staying, or at least not leaving during the summer... and I can't see him leave mid season. Milner on the other hand seems way more likely. What will happen in-game if he does go to City before the start of the season? Just another jersey, or increase in value too? PS I love the fact that you have Carroll on your team as well.

    Here's my team. I'll probably be active to about week two and then forget about it. [​IMG]

    My team is Lee Marvin Football Club.

    I think we can make unlimited changes until the first kick off, after that only one transfer per week "for free", additional transfers will deduct points.

    Looking forward to this!

    Bit of a gamble with the Newcastle lads, but they're a team that could do anything. Fletcher is a solid choice for sub Forward IMO.

    My concern is that if they don't transfer are they going to give their all for the team? I think values of players are fixed until first kick off, but then they can go up and down. Trying to pick players whose value is likely to increase is too much for my small brain. I do wonder if Milner goes to City whether he'll start every week - the less chance of a player being played each week the stronger you want your subs...

    Carroll is a bit of a gamble - he's certainly proved himself capable outside of the premier league, and could be a real bargain. The biggest concern is whether he can avoid ending up in jail for assault.
