I remember when Tesco started to sell Froot Loops and I was all (used to eat that nearly every morning when I lived in Barbados). Then I tasted it and it tasted like shit. They took out nearly all the sugar

I'm fine with that, but think you should get something for running the whole thing.

Also I am aware how much it costs to send you them over, so am trying to save on you spending even more money!

I wouldnt mind contributing 5 or so. Think cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd might be a good idea too would be a way of spicing things up, encouraging more (healthy) competition would only improve the state of things in the league.

Would anyone be up for expanding the player roster to Football League too? Don't know if this has ever been done (merging points scored from players in Premier, Championship, League 1, League 2) before on another Internet fantasy game?
Just something that crossed my mind

Just thought I'd bring across a chat from my other league to see if any of you guys have any thoughts on it.

It was brought up that players like Matic who can sometimes decide games with their defensive midfield performances don't get enough recognition in the scoring.

One guy asked if we could implement performance scores from one of the newspapers so that these guys score more, but that would involve loads more work for whoever's scoring the league (ie IronCity here)

Another guy asked about Man of the Match bonuses, but the argument against that is in situations like the last 2 weeks when Aguero & Mane each scored 23 points, a MOM bonus could mean these guys win games by themselves and punish opponents with strong & steady squads rather than stars.

My main argument is just don't buy these guys! Unless you're going for the safety of the two points for starting, try not to bother with defensive midfielders, but what do you all think? Should we look for a way to credit lower scoring players, or is it tough shit, this thing works, lets leave it as it is, don't give IronCity more work than he already has!

I think we've had this discussion before and decided the additional work would be too much.

I think most of us don't value defensive minded midfielders that highly, especially those that aren't known for assists or goals.

We've touched on defensive midfielders before, and it's too difficult an area to make fair across the board.

A couple of things I'd like to put forward - nominating a new position for your player. I had this issue with Danny Rose (who I bought as a midfielder) however spent the season at left back. I lost out as he was playing deeper, and less likely to score points with assists or goals, and the double hit of not getting clean sheet bonuses. Antonio Valencia has been another one this season to fall into that category.

The second suggestion, I think has already been mentioned, surrounds late kick offs (ie Saturday evening, Sunday, Monday). Or in any instance where there's one 12:45 kick off. We could have one player in the 12:45 game but have to name the other ten without knowing whether they'll feature. Perhaps naming three subs, one in each position, or four to include the goalkeeper? If your player doesn't make it onto the field, the substitute for that position comes on and scores in his place?

Nah I don't like the idea of subs. Name an XI and leave it at that. Luck and reading in to form, injuries and pre weekend press conferences are all part and parcel with this game imo.

aside from the idea that there are good suggestions, i have to bring up that assigning a position to a player outside of the telegraph designation, having me sift through everyone's subs, and anything that steps away from being able to copy and paste Telegraph scores into our spreadsheet of players just can't happen.

Its Friday, I am already late for work, I can't get week 33 up today (got home from work at 10pm last night), work all day in the field and have to take a 9hr drive to Georgia immediately after. Its going to be tough to get week 33 and the final week all completed in a timely manner. I get back late Sunday.

Quick example how we can't add in much variation to a recipe that i created 3yrs ago. I have been through the "what cans and what can't happen".

If someone else wants to do it, then have at it. But I watched two consecutive years of letting someone else do it and they failed.

I would agree that subs is going too far, but the 12:45pm KO is a nuisance. I prefer the idea of submitting your starters for that match, and then updating your lineup for the 3pm games. But then, where do we draw the line? A new updated lineup for the evening KO? Another update for Sunday? One more for Monday? It's a lot more work for Iron to handle, and to be honest, I'm ok with leaving it as it is now.

Same with player positions, just go by the telegraph, even though it's not always accurate. It can work in your advantage - having a registered defender who actually plays on the wing (eg Schlupp). You get CS bonuses, as well as more opportunities for goals and assists.

Good point IC, if we give players differenet positions then it's down to you to start allocating points rather than the (already lengthy process of) copying of information fro the Telegraph

One reason we have not allowed staggered starting lineups in the past is there were certain people that went to football matches, bammers and Ali for example. Wasn't fair for them to be at a match and not being able to keep up with every one else adding starters.

I think at this point at least three changes will be adopted

1) Formations - any combination of: 1 GK, 3-5 Defenders, 3-5 Midfielders, 1-3 Forwards

2) Total Pts for tie breaker. Just so I don't have to listen to complaints. PTs difference people likely not to complain (as much)

3) Some Cup change, not sure what

1) sounds good. Flexibility with formations should be great. Allows more of a tactical approach from us managers which will be good.

When building squad in the bidding rounds, I shall go through this carefully and decide on a formation.

Nice. I'll be picking the ol' 5-5-3 formation then.
