Hello and Welcome to the Football Manager Fantasy Football.

Credit goes to NepentheZ for the original idea!

This is a lot like many other Fantasy Football games, however it is done on Football Manager instead of based on real life matches. The basic idea is that each 'Forumer' (thanks again for the word canvey!!) get's a budget of £120 million to spend on a team consisting of 11 players. Teams must consist of 1 goalkeeper, but formations can be mixed around. You can choose from either: 5-3-2, 3-5-2, 4-4-2, 4-3-3, or 3-4-3. You must also assign a captain, who will score double points.

You can select up to 3 players from any one team. If a player is transferred during the season and this transfer takes you over this limit, then you will need to go back under the limit when making your next transfers. Each player has been given a value. The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £120 million. Players will be posted in screenshots, by team, later on. The value of players is taken from Football Manager as well.

Transfers can be made once a week, you have a limit of 3 transfers per week, so choose very carefully. You do not have to use all your transfers, but the transfers you don't use will not be carried through to the next week, so for example if you do not use any of your transfers, you will not get 6 the next week, you will still have 3.

Wasn't going to take part in this, but it looks so well done and easy to do (on my part) that I think I will.

Teams must consist of 1 goalkeeper, but formations can be mixed around. You can choose from either: 5-3-2, 3-5-2, 4-4-2, 4-4-3, or 3-4-3.

I'm going to play 4-4-3 on account of being able to field 12 players :D.

Editing this into the guide to the sign-ups as you read this.

Also, hate to dent your use of fancy words, but the correct term is "forumer" not "forumite". A forumite is the digital version of a forumer, so a club or person edited into the database. We real people are forumers. ;)

I was just thinking to myself, aha there's an advantage in signing up early, you get the best players so everyone else can't use them. I then remembered that as it is fantasy football, everyone can have the same players.

That said, i'm confident my team will win !

Tomaldinho, would you mind editing that to the same layout as mine please (eg. not putting the whole thing in bold etc.), it makes the thread look tidier. :)

Oh and could you write down the club after each player please.

Ridleys after Week One, will you be posting the upcoming Gameweek's fixture list? Might be useful for anyone making transfers and to make sure certain players/teams are playing that gameweek, etc...

Alot of sign ups take time, don't forget that some of the less regular posters could have seen your message about only accepting regular users so they haven't bothered trying.

Yeah I suppose, many other sign ups. including my own have filled up a lot quicker than this though. It could be because of the amount of information you have to put in your Sign Up form and everything, including looking at screenshots and everything.

Who is this "paul" you speak of. I know him only as Rampant Hula.

Interestingly, i think Gerrard is the most picked player so far.

Actually, Crisitiano Ronaldo is the most picked. Picked by 7 of us, Gerrard is 2nd with 5 picks and Adebayor is 3rd with 4 picks, so far.
