    Real football, if you like football that isnt round then you need not read on.

    So we didn't get mixed up with our usual football banter we needed a thread for our Fantasy Football League Discussions.

    The MacRumors Fantasy Football League is done on the official PL site, which is here, so go on there and join us.

    Thanks to pknz who setup our league. This can be accessed by joining League number: 653236-172561

    Anything else and I'll edit this post.

    Discuss away. :)

    Team - Bushey

    Bloody Ronaldo getting sent off. From MOTD it seems like such a minor thing although they didnt really have a good angle of it.

    Just added my Bristol Tigers. Hopefully they will do better than the jokers I have picked for the Sun fantasy football!

    I just joined in, since I've got nothing to lose. As an American, I'm expected to do poorly...and if I do well, you'll never live it down!

    I think you can't see other people teams yet who haven't play a match, for example I can see Pawel Kaniuk's (pknz i'm assuming) team by clicking on his name and then the game week. In case you can't see them i've put the team that i can see up

    pknz team - " pie"

    Hahnemann, Ferdinand, Ingimarsson, Dunne, Shorey, Fabregas, Arteta, Boateng, Kilbane, Berbatov (C), Johnson, Reina, Finnan, Gamst Pedersen, Samaras

    Steven Brown - "The Brown Bears"

    James, Evra, Ingimarsson, Boyce, Shorey, Jenas, Ronaldo, Essien, Parker, Taylor, Kuyt (C), Given, Owen, Rozehnal, Zamora

    My team - "Bushey"

    Reina, Richards, Heinze, Agger, Shorey, Gerrard (C), Boateng, Reo-Coker, Bendtner, evez, Forssell, James, Ronaldo, Essien, Primus

    Official MR League- Inspired!

    Latest news from the dugout- The Flying Mongooses are now known as Athletico Tarr. Imaginative, I know.

    Is anyone taking part in the F365/Sky league? I made a post about it a while back, but I think it's slipped into the depths of the MR archives. I'll resurrect the league if anyone fancies joining. The official prem game is much better, though.

    Yep, thats me, and you should be able to see each others teams after gameweek 3 closes (18th Aug 11:30BST) or after gameweek threes matches are all complete.

    Good luck everyone.

    You think you have it bad with the officials, I had that dopy idiot Clint Dempsey who managed to miss from less than 3 yards against the 'Boro yesterday. Useless prat! at least I have hit the big 40! Woo-Hoo.
