Neowin Fantasy Premiership Season 2007-2008

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Once more I have started a Neowin league for the Official Premier League Fantasy Football for the new season - 07-08!. The Neowin Fantasy Premier league is now going into it's fourth year, and I hope it will continue to be as popular as it has been before.

For those that haven't played before, go to http://fantasy.premierleague.com/index.html and click REGISTER. Follow the instructions, read the rules (link below), pick a team and register for the Neowin league. This is done by clicking 'Leagues' on the right hand side, entering the number '14685-5039' into the box, and clicking 'Join League'.

You can make transfers - one a week for free - but if you make any more in the same gameweek 4pts will be deducted from your total score. Players get points for things such as playing 60 mins, scoring, keeping a clean sheet or getting assists. However, the Fantasy Manager should be aware that players can also lose points for yellow or red cards. All rules, regulations, including how scoring works is listed in the following link: HELP/Rules. This includes info on how players score, when substitutes get points etc. Also look out for the 'Transfer Wildcard' option which is now available ( Transfer Help ). This enables you to make two transfers in a week for free at one point during the season.

After every gameweek I will try and do a run-down of the latest happenings within the league, such as highest scorer in the gameweek, current top three and any other significant things that may happen. I know toward the end of last season I stopped doing this (I was without the net for 6 months :(), but I will try and keep on top of it this season!

Good luck to everyone!

Ah...that is top secret ;)

Why is it titled "Neowin Season 06/07"?

It is because the league was automatically renewed from last year. The admin can change it though...so get your bum in gear Farsight and change it to 07/08 :p :D

yanger hunter:

The Fantasy Premier League website has a pundit page which it updates every week, giving info and tips on players and teams throughout the season. It is sometimes a good idea to have a read each week before making transfers:

http://fantasy.premierleague.com/M/pundit.mc

Apart from that, the best sites for EPL news, results and transfers are usually BBC and Skysports:
