1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi all,

    it's a bit earlier this year, but for those with the stamina, the 2013-14 league is ready.


    League no. 94726-28000

    http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

    All welcome (particularly anyone who will score less than me).

    The game rules are on the Premier League site and are pretty idiot proof.

    The big decisions are:

    Is RvP worth the cost?
    Is Bale worth the cost if he stays?

    I will decide!

    With only 100.0 in starting capital, it will be a mediocre team indeed for those who go with both RvP and Bale from the beginning. I think we are 17 teams in the competition now, a couple of seasons ago I remember we had more than 60 teams. What's happening with the world?

    How will the new managers perform?

    My guess
    Moyes - Manchester United - remember how badly things went after Sir Matt Busby - fail
    Martinez - Everton - relegated Wigan but now has a stronger squad - tread water
    Mourhino - Chelsea - knows the ropes - succeed
    Pellegrini - Manchester City - happy campers - succeed
    Hughes - Stoke - needs to start well - fail

    Get your teams sorted - the site always crashes/slows down just before the first day!

    Thanks, a site crash is a good excuse for what I fear will be a poor start. Don't know why this season seems harder than past ones?

    RvP hideously expensive
    No certainty on Man City players
    Bale probably not playing and Soldado an unknown
    Rooney uncertain
    Suarez out

    Basically the tried and tested big hitters are a minefield this year :)

    I haven't bought Soldado, but I think he'll be a solid bet. I've like him in La Liga over the last few years.

    For last season's first round I had new-comers Hazard, Cazorla, Podolski. This season I haven't dared to go with any new players except one cheap returnee (guess who). Was tempted to try Altidore at 7.0 but not sure it is ever wise to bet on Sunderland to do well. And Soldado at 9.5 seems expensive.
