TLF Fantasy Football 2011/2012

Itís back!

Another season of the TLF Premier is shortly about to kick-off - Aug 13th . So get your teams registered at the website below.

Fantasy Premier League - The official fantasy football game of the Barclays Premier League

Plenty of time before the start of the season but you can register now and have unlimited free transfers until the season starts. There is also an auto complete function on the website it will select a team for you, so you donít really have to think about it or even know anything about Football!

The code to join the league is - 80124-73913

This will be the 3rd year of the TLF Premier, the intention is for it to be a bit of fun, no serious stuff. Itís free to enter and the only prize is the status of becoming the TLF Premier Champion!
Can anyone dethrone last yearís Champion Derek Thom?

As well as the overall title, there will be Manager of the Months (MOTM) and two TLF Cup competitions (one before Xmas, one after). All entrants are automatically entered into the Ďmainí website game too, for which there are prizes (albeit meager oneís).

The game is run via the Fantasy Premier League website (run by the FA) and as such we are subject to the vagaries of their scoring system. This is OK but sometimes leaves you scratching your head! The website has been completely redesigned for this season, it takes a little getting used to but I feel is better.
I will post a full copy of the competition rules so everything is as clear as mud!

As always any questions please ask and remember youíve got to be in it to win it.
Most importantly itís FREE!

Good Luck.


Fantasy Football Ė The Basicís


To those of you who have never done any type of Fantasy Football competition, here are the basics.
  • Each player in the Premier League is given a price, this is set by powers that be that run the league (the FA not me).
  • A budget is set and allocated to each entrant (all entrants get the same budget). You have to select a team that covers all position (Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders & Strikers) and it MUST be within the budget.
  • For each Premier league match players are given a score depending on their performance.
  • The scores for all the players in your team are totaled up each week, compared against the other entrants and a league is formed from those results.
  • Some competitions include Scottish Premier League, FA Cup, Carling Cup, UEFA Cup & Champions League matches in their scoring too. Fantasy Premier League ONLY includes Premier League matches.
  • Fantasy competitions can and do apply to many other sports or, indeed, non-sports. Some examples are Fantasy Cricket, Fantasy Motor Racing, Fantasy Horse Racing, Fantasy Stocks and Shares, Fantasy Sudoku and many others.

Re: TLF Fantasy Football 2011/2012

The Full Rules

Squad Size
To join the game select a fantasy football squad of 15 players, consisting of:
ē 2 Goalkeepers
ē 5 Defenders
ē 5 Midfielders
ē 3 Forwards
Budget
The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.
Players per team
You can select up to 3 players from a single Barclays Premier League team.
Choosing Your Starting 11
From your 15 player squad, select 11 players by the Gameweek deadline to form your team.
All your points for the Gameweek will be scored by these 11 players, however if one or more doesn't play they may be automatically substituted.
Your team can play in any formation providing that 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders and at least 1 forward are selected at all times.
Selecting a Captain and a Vice-Captain
From your starting 11 you nominate a captain and a vice-captain. Your captain's score will be doubled.
If your captain plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, the captain will be changed to the vice-captain.
If both captain and vice-captain play 0 minutes in a Gameweek, then no player's score will be doubled.
Prioritising Your Bench For Automatic Substitutions
Your substitutes provide cover for unforeseen events like injuries and postponements by automatically replacing starting players who don't play in a Gameweek.
Based on the priorities you assign, automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek as follows:
ē If your Goalkeeper plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.
ē If any of your outfield players play 0 minutes in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender).
After selecting your squad you can buy and sell players in the transfer market.
Transfers Unlimited transfers can be made at no cost until your first deadline.
After your first deadline you will receive 1 free transfer each Gameweek. Each additional transfer you make in the same Gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total score (Classic scoring) and match score (Head-to-Head scoring) at the start of the next Gameweek.
If you do not use your free transfer, you are able to make an additional free transfer the following Gameweek. If you do not use this saved free transfer in the following Gameweek, it will be carried over until you do. You can never have more than 1 saved transfer.
Wildcards
A Wildcard allows you to make unlimited free transfers throughout a Gameweek. You can use up to 2 a season.
One Wildcard can be played at any time, the January Wildcard can only be used between Gameweeks 20 and 23 (2 Jan 11:30 to 4 Feb 11:30).
When playing a Wildcard, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek.
Player Prices
Player prices change during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player prices do not change until the season starts.
The price shown on your transfers page is a player's selling price. This selling price may be less than the player's current purchase price as a sell-on fee of 50% (rounded up to the nearest £0.1m) will be applied on any profits made on that player.
For example, if you buy a player for £8.3m and when you transfer him his price is £9.0m, his selling price will be £8.6m.
Scoring
During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Barclays Premier League.
Action Points
For playing up to 60 minutes 1
For playing 60 minutes or more 2
For each goal scored by a goalkeeper or defender 6
For each goal scored by a midfielder 5
For each goal scored by a forward 4
For each goal assist 3
For a clean sheet by a goalkeeper or defender 4
For a clean sheet by a midfielder 1
For every 3 shot saves by a goalkeeper 1
For each penalty save 5
For each penalty miss -2
Bonus points for the best players in a match 1-3
For every 2 goals conceded by a goalkeeper or defender -1
For each yellow card -1
For each red card -3
For each own goal -2
Red Cards
If a player receives a red card, they will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by their team.
Red card deductions include any points deducted for yellow cards
Assists
Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the last touch before the goal is scored.
If after this touch, an opposing player touches the ball outside the penalty area altering the intended destination of the ball, then no assist is given, except if this intervention directly results in an own goal.
In the event of a penalty or free-kick, the player earning the penalty or free-kick gets an assist if a goal is directly scored, but not if he takes it himself, in which case no assist is given.
All assists are reviewed before the points are updated at the end of each day.
Bonus Points
The three best performing players in each match according to the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index will receive additional bonus points. 3 points will be awarded to the highest scoring player, 2 to the second best and 1 to the third.
Bonus points will be awarded the morning after the matches are played.
Examples of how bonus point ties will be resolved are as follows:
ē If there is a tie for first place, Players 1 & 2 will receive 3 points each and Player 3 will receive 1 point.
ē If there is a tie for second place, Player 1 will receive 3 points and Players 2 and 3 will receive 2 points each.
ē If there is a tie for third place, Player 1 will receive 3 points, Player 2 will receive 2 points and Players 3 & 4 will receive 1 point each.
Leagues
After entering your squad, you can join and create leagues to compete with friends and other game players.
League Types
Private Leagues
Private leagues are the heart and soul of the game, where you compete against your friends. Just create a league and then send out the unique code to allow your friends to join, easy!
You can compete in up to 15 private leagues. There's no limit on the number of teams in a single league.
Public Leagues
Need an extra challenge? Then join a public league of 20 randomly assigned teams. You can compete in up to 3 public leagues.
Global Leagues
You are automatically entered into the following global leagues:
ē The overall league featuring all registered teams
ē A league for fellow managers from your country
ē A league for supporters of your favourite Barclays Premier League team
ē A league for managers starting the same Gameweek as you
ē The Fantasy Cup (starts in December)
League Scoring
All leagues score on either a Classic or Head-to-Head basis.
Classic Scoring
In a league with Classic scoring, teams are ranked based on their total points in the game. You can join or leave a league with Classic scoring at any point during the season.
In the event of a tie between teams, the team who has made the least amount of transfers will be positioned higher.
Classic scoring leagues are run over a number of phases:
Phase First Gameweek Last Gameweek
Overall Gameweek 1 Gameweek 38
August Gameweek 1 Gameweek 3
September Gameweek 4 Gameweek 6
October Gameweek 7 Gameweek 10
November Gameweek 11 Gameweek 13
December Gameweek 14 Gameweek 19
January Gameweek 20 Gameweek 23
February Gameweek 24 Gameweek 26
March Gameweek 27 Gameweek 31
April Gameweek 32 Gameweek 36
May Gameweek 37 Gameweek 38
Any transfer point deductions in the Gameweek before a phase starts won't be deducted from the phase score. For example, any transfers made in Gameweek 3 (preparing for Gameweek 4) won't be deducted from your September score.
Head-to-Head Scoring
In a league with Head-to-Head each team plays a match against another team in the league each Gameweek. The match result is based on the Gameweek score of each team minus any transfer points spent preparing for the Gameweek.
3 points are awarded for a win and 1 point for a draw, teams are then ranked on points earned in Head-to-Head matches.
Head-to-Head fixtures are generated at the start of the league's first Gameweek. Once these fixtures have been generated the league is locked and teams will not be able to join or leave.
If a Head-to-Head league has an odd number of teams then an average team will join the league to ensure each team has a fixture every Gameweek. This team will always score the Gameweek average.
In the event of a tie between teams, the team who has most game points will be positioned higher.
Head-to-Head Knock-out stage
Optionally, a Head-to-Head league may end with a knock-out stage over up to 3 Gameweeks with the league winner decided by a match in the final Gameweek. The automatically entered average team will not enter the knock-out stage, their place being taken by the next placed team.
In the event of a tie between teams in a Head-to-Head knock-out match, the following tie-breaks will be used:
1. Most goals scored in the Gameweek
2. Fewest goals conceded in the Gameweek
3. Virtual coin toss
Deadlines
All changes to your team (starting 11, transfers, captain changes, substitiution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline in order to take effect for that set of matches.
Gameweek Deadline
Gameweek 1 13 Aug 11:30
Gameweek 2 20 Aug 11:30

Re: TLF Fantasy Football 2011/2012

Can I please have the TLF usernames of teams who have entered so far please? It just means a bit more to everyone else when I tell you how well/poorly you have done!

If you entered last season and have the same team name I already have this information (although it'll do no harm to send it again).

You can post it or PM me.

We have 9 entrants so far, 29 last year can we beat that?

A Final Reminder - people have until 11:30 tomorrow morning to enter the competition. The details are above.

27 entries so far (bizarrely the same as last season but not all the same people).

Plenty of people can talk the talk but can they walk the walk too? Now's your chance to prove you can.
