Do any of you play the "I know the score" game on the same website?

I'm in the top 0.1% so far...

Yep I do 'I know the score', but I'm not very good at it. I tend to try and use the 2-1 home result prediction unless I have a clear hunch that the away team will win. I put both the multiplier and insurance on the same one, then at least I don't lose points when I'm wrong :wink:

Wrong again Mase - as people will see that are in the 'Britoos' league this year, it is the one with the capital hehe. Anyway hopefully to end this arguement, it's largely irrelevant who wins, it's the fun that one has that matters :D

Ladies and Gentlemen, as the end of the month is here I thought I would post some standings in our group league.

In first place - Dan Kingston - Has come out pretty strong, we just have to see if he can keep it up!

In second place - Matt Cotterill - currently in 3rd, but has 4 players playing today and needs 7 points to overtake me!

In third place - Joe Hamilton - I'm after you two boys!!

In fourth place - Dominic Evans - No transfers as of yet, and is doing alright!

In fifth place - Rob Atha (congrats mate!) No transfers, and is sittin pretty well!

In sixth place - Joe Bundy - Too many transfers have seen Joe fall down the league, but with a revamped team is he going to sore back up the table?

In seventh place - Steed Lyall - Again, another practioner of the 'no transfer' style. He's the Howard Wilkinson of the fantasy league.

In eighth place - Pete Franklin - Has come out of the blocks slowly, but who knows what might happen!

In ninth place - Shovie - I would liken his style to Sven, who plays people because of their reputation, and doesn't give a crap about anyone else. As a result, half of Shovies team are injured, but will his faith soon be repaid??

In tenth place - David Wilson - Last year David had a strong year finishing toward the top, but joining the game late has cost him some early points. We'll see if his class can float him up the table!

I'm 5th at the end of the month. x

And you can never have too many transfers. Hereford Utd have had about 20 in and 20 out this season and they're doing great....oh, no, hang on.

I've said from the start my team is on lockdown. So even if they remain injured they're staying!

Heh, yeah, it's not going well, partly because I've forgotten about two gameweeks already so far ...

You're doing awesome Joe. You had a really good week, and the team is looking very strong. Good job sir!

Dan K has a really good team this year, my bets are on him winning :)

lol. Great job guys, and yeah that team is doing pretty poorly. I have another that is sitting on 422 points and yet it essentially has the same players apart from a few. Wierd!

Your definitely going to beat me this year buddy :D

Shame Torres couldn't perform as well last night, doh!

I had Fabregas as captain as well. Sadly he alone scored more than three times as many points as the rest of my team put together. :lol:

Huge congrats to Dan for winning this years FF! Dan was leading from start to finish and ended up 7,488th out of 2.3 million people.

1 Dan Kingston 2353
2 Matt Cotterill 2303
3 joe bundy 2046
4 Chris Haigh 2018
5 Peter Franklin 1987
6 David Wilson 1928
7 Joe Hamilton 1806
8 Dominic Evans 1772
9 Rob Atha 1542
10 Alex Shovelton 1512
11 Stephen Lyall 1409


I'm currently looking for a good website that is going to set up an online FF league for the world cup. Last time (Euros), the engine for the premier league FF was used, and hosted on the official website. Let's hope the same is done this year. I will post the details when I've sorted them.

Thanks again!
