Euro 2012

Fantasy League Pro – The Wrap Up

With today’s deadline looming across all the Fantasy games, your lineups should be close to being finalised – your Fantasy League pro auctions now complete.

I put the final piece in my 15-man squad with the capture of Mario Balotelli on Wednesday evening, he’ll work in a dubious partnership with Robin Van Persie to carry my hopes over the group stages.

Of course, the League Chairman should now have moved their games on and paved the way for sealed bidding to start on transfers. I’ve set my league to allow transfers after every set of Group matches, with a first deadline at 10pm on June 11 – I’m limiting bids to 5 per round with 20 over the tournament as a whole. Your chairman might have done different – that’s certainly one of the interesting elements of the Pro game.

Chairman can set your sealed bids deadline for the first round of transfers via their Chairman’s Office, by clicking on Sealed Bids. Here you can set a deadline for managers to make bids for the remaining free agents. You go back to this screen on the deadline to process the bids – watch out for any bids made after the deadline when you do. By default, managers can make unlimited transfers over the tournament – if you want to restrict that, you can do so, again via the Chairmans Office. This initial screen is also where a Chairman can change the cap on the number of players per country – I’m tweaking mine to 4 after the group stages are complete.

If there are any Chairman struggling to move their game on past the auction phase, due to final bids not being made or teams failing to make bids, then they should contact prosupport@fantasyleague.com asap. Provide details of your division id (available in the url of your league page) and the team id’s effected (available in the url of the teams in question) and they will resolve the issue so you can move you games on in time for today’s kick-off.

Fantasy League Classic

If you missed out on the Fantasy League Pro action, and you’re still looking out for an alternative to your McDonalds lineup, you can still take advantage of the Fantasy League Classic game. Entry to this is £5 with over £10,000 in the prize pot, including £5,000 to the winner.

      P.s. .......

      The fixture list is confirmed around the middle of June each year and announced on premierleague.com.
      The first set of changes take place when television companies select the first group of matches they would like to screen live. This usually happens within two weeks of the original list coming out. At around the same time, the clubs that are playing in Europe will examine the list to see if there are any matches which need to be moved. Once teams progress to the later rounds of the other cup competitions, League fixtures can be altered. In this instance we always consult with the local police and the clubs concerned.

    Ok change of tack, can't ignore the potential value in Jelly and gone off Strinic and K Papa since they've become rotation risks.. So now have copied my Sky team template in a 3-5-2 without Robben but sith Wes instead!

    Alba Piszczek Kadlec

    Mandzukic Iniesta Ozil Sniejder Shirokov

    Ronny Lewandowski (c)

    Plan is to sub in Jelly on Sunday for the most underperfoming player and Hart for Anderson assuming Denmark don't hold Holland.

    Im planning on wildcarding for after GW 1 so decided not to go with any germans since i have this feeling that it wont be a high scoring game anyway against portugal and i dont think their price is worth.
