Fantasy Football 2022/23

Post by welshlad »

I'm sure this starts earlier every year, but it's now time to start thinking about the forthcoming Premier League football season. Or, more specifically, the Fantasy Premier League football season!

For all those who want to participate in Fantasy Premier League Football again this coming 2022/23 season, I have just renewed the CWF Fantasy Football League we have had for several seasons. Anyone who was in it last year should be automatically entered into it again this year - once you register your new squad - but please double check.

For anyone new wanting to join the league, it couldn't be easier. Simply use the link below and you'll be added automatically after you've entered the game.

https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagu ... oin/w8a3l3

League Code: w8a3l3

The season starts on Friday 5th August, so you need to get your squad registered pretty soon. The deadline for submitting your team for Gameweek 1 is 18.30 BST on Fri 5th August.

Continuing with the feature we added last season, I will keep track of the Manager of the Month awards and post about them on this thread. As for the overall season, as per previous years there are no prizes other than unlimited kudos from the others in the league - a prize that no money can buy! :)

Good luck!

Thanks for getting this sorted, Steve.

Doesn't the season start early this year, as we have a break pre-Christmas to allow for the World Cup?

Thanks Steve, suffered through the re-sign up process and now have to guess who might have had a good summer. A bit early though, there's plenty of time for some pre-season injuries yet.

Just a quick reminder that the deadline for the new season is looming fast.

Please make sure you have registered and selected your opening squad/team by 18.30 BST on Friday 5th August. :thumbup:

All this time I’ve been seeing the Fantasy Football thread pop up I instinctively assumed it was American football without even thinking about. I kept thinking to myself, “Man, these guys really love the NFL!” without ever clicking on the thread because I do not love the NFL.

Now I feel dumb as a rock because of course “Fantasy Football” on a thread dominated by UK members would refer to Premier League. :lol: :lol: :lol:

^^^^ . . . . . . and as an NFL follower / fan, I wouldn't dare to try the NFL Fantasy Football.

I'm sure it will be far too complex and detailed (compared to the Premiere League one). :-k :-k

It must be, I mean how many minutes counts as a half/full appearance when you only come on to kick?!

...

Back on topic - deadline day tomorrow 18:30, already had to replace my first serious injury of the season :lol:

An interesting first weekend...

Does anyone have any serious regrets and looking to play an immediate wildcard and rip up the squad yet :lol:!

I'm slightly disappointed that I changed Mitrovic from my squad and got drawn in to have 3 big strikers instead. To balance this though I am slightly smug (for now) about selecting Dewsbury-Hall from Leicester who had around 1% ownership on the gamble that he will do well this season.

Hopefully in a few weeks the teams will mix up a little as there are a lot of similar teams out there.

Just another 37 game weeks (plus a World Cup) to go...

Not a good start for me with no-one providing an electrifying contribution.

However, its only the first week and I have a couple of minor changes in mind for my free transfers.

I'm working on the principle that the reasons for making the initial choices still stand and only injuries etc or something dramatic should change that.

You have some good picks like Ward Prowse and players like Bowen and Son will score big over the long term.

A few weeks in and I've had a rubbish time of it, bottom of the league; not helped by results in the first couple of weeks being completely topsy turvy and missing selection deadlines for the last two Game Weeks. :oops: :oops:

Matter taken in hand, this evening ready for Saturday.

A couple of transfers to correct poor initial choices and drop poor performers and being bold (rash?) with a couple more, incurring penalty points, to go with a hunch on who's going to be better. :wink: :wink:

Fortune favours the brave; I hope. :D :D

I'm not doing much better, Guy. :(

Whose idea was this fantasy football league anyway? Bloomin' daft idea! :lol:

I just looked to see who did worse than me this week and was shocked - your team looks solid and it's not like you didn't swap out players who got injured or sold abroad in the weeks you missed. You could easily regret whoever you've got rid of!

I think my initial selection has fallen into the grip of the Financial Services mantra; Past performance is no guarantee of future performance (or whatever the actual wording is).

As to my transfers, one of my bold ones that I've paid penalty points for, is switching out my stalwart of Harry Kane for WizKid Erling Harland
