    I am a great team player, as long as we do it mine way! Huzzah! ‘Assistant’ is corporate speak for ‘Squire’, tis a squire they’re seeking! A squire knowledgeable in the ways of electrickery! Unfortunately I am overqualified for the position.

      Shame you feel you're over qualified - I would have loved to read your responses to emails received - by engaging with the community you could have shared them on here.

        ‘You fool of a Took’ would be mine standard response to all enquiries!

            Sometimes I would say ‘You have mistaken me for somebody who wants to list to your whining - banished! You are banished from the Kingdom’!

        Yeah, your skills would be wasted on such a lowly position.

        Chief Moderator of Nudists is the job you're really waiting for.

          Nudist Wrangler! This is being added to mine already impressive CV (Codpiece Vitae)!

      You are not economically viable as they once told D-Fens.

    "Engage with the community on site".

    How is this not a standard requirement for all FFS staff? Such a basic objective and so easy to achieve.

    1. notlob legin

      When I read that I had exactly the same thought. Never understood why more of the FFS staff don't engage more.

      1. Now I'm Panicking

        I genuinely think the attitude of the current FFS staff is that engaging with the community is a chore and beneath them.

          Obviously excluding Neale here who is a diamond in the rough.

            Agreed

        Could it be they're happy letting the lunatics run the ̶a̶s̶y̶l̶u̶m̶ forums, and there's at least one serial-complaint member that most would want to avoid.

          You've cracked the strikethrough code! Well done 😉

          One or two difficult people shouldn't distract from the majority. By engaging more with the community surely they'd get more interaction and then long-term more members.

    Knights Template, Eliteserien have a summer break! 4 weeks break! Might be forced to do the Euros.

      Go on then, twist mine arm….our!

    Anyone had a go of making a Bet365 team? Feel like the prices are mental.

    1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Mental as in how? Seems pretty well balanced to me.
      I have a core of about 7 players I would have in every team, and then would play about with the other slots for multi teams. WC in round 3 for all teams, for better or worse, mainly because 4 FT in each knockout round seems generous.

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years

        Defender and keeper prices just seem to be team-based rather than player-based. Play for England, Spain, Germany, Portugal, etc? 6m - doesn't matter whether you're a fullback or not. Everyone's priced as if they're guaranteed to play, which is just a bit weird too.

        1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I much prefer that approach tbh, where everyone is priced as if they are playing, as to all intents and purposes we are only going to pick starting players anyway. And there is some variation, i.e. TAA 6.5, Maguire 6.0 and Gomez 5.5.

          If they price a defender for a top team at 4.5 and then an injury occurs or the friendlies indicate that they are going to be a starter, everyone has that player, everyone has the same team, and the game gets boring, quick.

          Towards the end of this season, you could get Man City's starting goalie, and Liverpool's starting goalie, for 7.5m in FPL. That's how much of a mess it can become if you base player prices so heavily on likelihood of starting.

          1. x.jim.x
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Think I just need to put more time into it, think I've been spoilt by FPL's proper lax pricing. Just means there's no point picking certain CBs for example - no one's gonna pick Stones over Shaw or Maguire for example.

      Yes! its the same as fan team I think. Pedri at 5.5 if he starts could be great value but it is annoying how expensive some players are but hopefully it means us who know are stuff can do well get in that top 10% and get some cash prizes.

    Isn't it conventional to say how much the pay is on a paid job advert?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Then everyone would know how much the squire is being paid! I never reveal how much mine squires are paid, because that might drive the price of turnips up!

      There’s a blast from the past! Didn’t you once have a Mr Bean grav?

        Not sure, but I might have been Beaker!

        I stopped posting on here when it became too frantic. Good to see you're still here old-timer

    I'm not sure about this, sounds like a part-time employment to me!

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Personally, it was the "20 hours per week" that tipped me off about it being part-time...

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years

      You look like you already have a job, no?

      1. The Knights Template

        Or tis a Rowse ruse?

    I’d like to throw my hat in the ring. I’ll be out of prison by the start of season.

              Apparently because you deleted the account, you need to make a new one. You will obviously be accepted, just keep your username as similar as you can to the old one so we know who you are 🙂
