60 people registered for game two.

Be nice to hit 100 Smiley

Obviously I'm not the only one not interested in the new format. You must have realised too as you're now hoping to reach 100 instead of you're original target of beating the 1st half of the season.

Not really, but if it supports your view, I can see why you'd assume that. My original post was made when we had 141 players registered, and then just needed to pick a team. We also had 12 new players join, so at that point, even if 11 had followed your opinion and not player, our original target would have been hit. We fully expected a drop out of people not wanting to play, but also an increase of new players - especially through fantasy fatigue, and any decent PR person at the club owuld have seen this as an opportunity for decent press coverage for the club.

However, a CMS glitch occured on Friday meaning it wiped all data of the game (you'll see Glynn had to re-do his team his you look below). So we had to start, so re-adjusting the target for the opening day to 100.

We may have got it wrong. We may have got it right and people may like the choice.

And if we, we'll hold our hands up, and  come August we'll look at different ways to improve it - such as perhaps including players who go out on loan to other clubs, removing the need for a GK, adding different point systems such as % tackles.

A day more along to conference travels with the time it took.

We just didn't click first 40 minutes. A woeful save on a free kick gifted us the lead.

A stronger ref would have probably taken charge of their CB manhandling Hulme, but once we scored they couldn't focus solely on him which gave us more room to play.

How Tom Peers didn't make (at the time 3) 4, still bemuses me. But a solid 3-0 after a early setback.

Hopefully tomorrow is on, and we can look to increase the gap to 12

I'm not bothering this time,not having players in their natural positions is just bizarre!

Fair enough, thanks for taking part in the original game.

Does it matter as we're all picking from the same
Yes it does because now you can't have Hancock and Hulme in your team together which is a bit odd considering one is a midfielder and the other a striker

If everyone picks Hancock and Hulme, the teams would be identical which is what we had last week.

From the official club website:

Josh HANCOCK (d.o.b. 5 September, 1990)

Signed from Nantwich Town in May 2017, Josh is a midfielder who came through The Dabbers' youth set-up before moving on to Winsford United (2009-10). Next, he joined Witton Albion and made more than 150 appearances and scored some fifty times.

He next joined AFC Telford United before a return to Witton, which preceded a move to Salford City and then a return to Nantwich Town in January 2016. He started the season with four goals in his first six appearanes in league and cup matches and remained the leading scorer for the club in the league in mid-November.


I'm not disputing his position I know he's a midfielder.

Since when has Josh Hancock been a striker?

As a 2nd top scorer, we decided to include him in the FWD section to allow more variation as everyone had JJ Hancock Hulme by the end of the season.


Huh But he is a midfielder, we only play with one stricker and thats Hulme

Bit odd that your changing the reality of players positions to suit your game

Hancocks goals should be worth 5 points as a midfielder not 4 points as a striker - because he is a midfielder


Good question.

So, in an ideal world, we'd be able to say a Simon Richman goal is worth more than a Hancock goal (he's in less scoring opportunities than someone who plays very top line)

Should a clean sheet for a CB be worth more than a full back who spends time bombing forward. Or a full back assist be worth more than a CM.

Steve Foster should be disqualified as he has inside info from the dressing room.

So does another player, who won't be named.
