    Norganon, I'm sure you know a lot more about the EPL than I do for example. The only teams I know a little bit about are the ones which have some spaniards on the team. The CL teams I'll follow from time to time as well. The rest of the teams and players there? It's pretty much greek to me.

    Is there a http://fantasy.premierleague.com/ league set up yet?

    Best way to learn more about the EPL is to play it! I'm hoping Bale gets sold to Real, so that I don't have to spend 12.0 points on him.

    No, if you want to set one up and look after it go ahead and do so.

    Alreet heres the code to join the league : 100763-167890

    The prize for the winner is obviously kudos and the knowledge he knows the most about football. Derp. Reckon it deserves its own thread?

    nah no need to set up another thread - y'know how some people get pissy over spam and there's always a danger it attracts the sort of discussion that requires moderator interjection!

    And isn't the first prize an interview for the managers position at Man City/Chelski or is that a competition in Football Manager 2014?

    Bale worth nearly £90M?

    Madrid are mugs if they end up paying that.

    I joined the league and made a team. Wasn't sure what I was doing so I tried to make the strongest team I could while staying within budget. I now have 0 millions in the bank :/

    Feel free to explain what one does

    My team looks something like this but will probably change alot since transfers are still ongoing:

    Apart from that I've noticed Chelsea are playing twice in game week 1 so I'll get Mata or Hazard in and Captain them.

    Basically check it every week is all you have to do (i try to do it on a friday since if you make transfers midweek a player might get injured in training or something).

    Check this out http://fantasy.premierleague.com/rules/ Click on the rules tab. Good luck!

    That's what I put together.

    It would give Real a shot at selling more jerseys, right about now 1 in 10 kids has a Barcelona shirt with Messi on it here (or so it seems), if you get Bale that'll shift jerseys over here.

    Perez has already won the elections, there are no other candidates. Partly because you have to pay almost €60 million and be a socio for 20 years. I don't think Bale is going to make a difference in jerseys. Real sells a lot of jerseys already, especially in the east.

    Bale doesn't have the face for selling jerseys. I dont think Madrid need him, I'd love united to go for him, the only place I think he should go, but not for the silly money expected.

  18. #38
    Yea Bale does look like an ape. I liked it when bananas were thrown at him (finally someone using bananas in a non racist way). He's not worth silly money tho. He needs to do what giggs didn't and play for england, but that will never happen. He'd make Real proper dangerous mind. Ronaldo and Bale vs Messi and Neymar. Madness.

    I have to say, this season is gonna be the most exciting one in years. We have Pep returning, Sir Alex' replacement, Mou back in the EPL, Real Madrid with a new manager and some super exciting signings, Neymar in Europe and possibly the best Bayern Munich side since the 70s. Can't wait.

    EDIT: Oh, and let's not forget Arsenal's superstar signings .
