FanFooty Grand Finale 2017/18

Postby Devilsweep » Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:40 am

So Yani and Yorkie are letting me loose as a Chairman of a Cash League !! The below are the rules (updated) as detailed previously by Mintman (who I believe is not chairing this year):

Ok guys so here we go again with the third season of Grand Finale.

Rules are as follows...

Template team will be picked by last seasons champ although I want to float a slightly different idea - see next post

You allowed to make a maximum of 4 changes to the template team prior to season KO, and those changes must be declared on this thread no later than kick off of the first game (Friday 10th August I believe)

Once the season has started you are allowed to use a maximum of 10 transfers in 2017. Every team must start 2018 with at least 30 transfers and any teams in breach of this will be disqualified. The is no minimum use on transfers.

Teams must be set to public until 2018. Then you can go ninja if ya like? :grin:

If people could post their transfers on this thread that would make the game more interesting/funny depending on the transfers!!

The entry fee for this fine league will be £10 and Prize Money tbc depending on the amount of entrants, but the will be prizes for 1st and 2nd. There will be a prize for 3rd if we hit 15 entrants. There will be the usual 10% charity donation, which the destination will be decided by the winner.

Don't blame me letting you loose on a cash league not my decision to take. I'd have banned you years ago :titter:

Right - normally the Champ (Yorkie) would pick the template team fully and it's not that I don't trust Yorkie implicitly, but I do want this league to be as inclusive as possible and as such I want to extend the opportunity to sl*g off your opponents selections from the very get go. Therefore I am proposing the following format for the creation of the template team (assuming everyone is playing still)

Yorkie - First 6 picks
Clammers - 7th Pick
Timmsy - 8th Pick
Bisley - 9th Pick
Rinkydinkdo - 10th Pick
Yani - 11th Pick (gawd help us)

I believe this was the finishing order last year but if not can someone correct me asap please?

So first thing Yorkie needs to decide is does he go obvious or put in some players that he doesn't think will get selected by others. Then we all take out Yani's pick ahead of the first game :titter:

All make sense ?

PS - if any of the above 6 don't play I will make the pick instead or I could ask Scotty who was 7th :wave2:

Best laid plans - right ...I'll pick the last one as I ended the season with 17 transfers left in this so would have come top 6 if I'd been arsed and I don't know who was after Scotty - good team so far though - maybe we should have given it to Our Darren just for the giggle

A tactical master-class surely ? It's like leaving a shot in snooker that you know your opponent will give back to you !!
