Way off topic but are there any RF members who would like to compete in Play The Game a version of fantasy football run by The Times?
It's free to enter and although it looks complicated it isn't too demanding once teams are allocated....don't ask me to explain the points scoring system though.

If there's sufficient interest I'll set up a private league (max 20).
Season starts 11/8 so will need to sort out league and get players allocated by say 7/8.

Don't know how it all works but will give it a go, if you get more than 20 and they are more into it than me I don't mind giving up my space.

TT :d

Not sure I can fantasize about football, can I be Preston North End?
That's not quite how it works Bagpuss though you can give your team a name.

Log into The Times website and have a look at Play The Game...don't get put off by how complicated it may seem...it's fairly easy really. I haven't set up a league yet so don't register a team for the time being.

Nothing at all!!

As long as we have 5 interested I can set up a league....more would be better though.

SWMBO used to play..at one stage our Sundays were quite hectic with me playing in the morning, then running a youth team in the afternoon and SWMBO playing in the afternoon too. Thank God we gave that all up to run!

I have set up the Private League for 10 teams. This can be reduced (to 5 min) or added to (to 20 max) anytime before the allocation of players which is set for 7/8.

To join the league search for its name which, imaginatively, is Runners Forum Liga and the password is SPRINT

You'll see my team there already....OB IRONWORKS (which I expect Dave and Hayley to understand!)

Join asap...the more the merrier!

Players are allocated to each squad by reference to the order you and other league teams have placed them. No squad therefore will consist of everyone you want... the idea being you are put in the position of a real manager. As a consequence a player can only be allocated to one squad in the league. Once squads are allocated you need to pick your team/subs for each "set" of 38 real premiership games.

Sounds complicated but I'm sure it'll be fine!!

OB ...abbreviation for Oulton Broad...
Thames Ironworks (WHU original name) therefore becomes OB Ironworks

Not happy about losing to MK Dons after being 2-0 up...need to sort defence out sharpish!
