Our ever-popular Fantasyu Football game is coming to a close with this season finishing on the 26th December.

A new season will begin on Jan 1st.

All current teams will be set to zero. But we'll also be factoring in a few players prices, so be sure to check you can afford the players you've got!

Why is the season finishing in December? Bit pointless if it doesnt match the real season

Also why were no point given for the Mossley or Chester games when they were for the Ashton game?

Points were given for Chester, Moseley they should have been.

The game was set up from the start to be until December, because we recognised the general trend  that football fans who aren't in the top few in their league lose interest. so we decided to run two seasons, even though this is technically costings us more to run it this way.

An invitation to our Brewery event alongside Mr Parkinson (and potentially his assistant).

We're going to await until the winners have been set before we annouce the date of this event.

I notice that Alty FC kitman Steve Foster is currently occupying third position:

Insider knowledge alert there, surely? Controversial...!

No they weren't

Simon Richman was sent off against Chester so needs -5 points deducting, as a number of the leading players have him in their teams, can see this descending into a farce

Stewards enquiry?

Thats just plain stupid, design a football competition that isn't reflective of a full season just to suit those who can't play it and have got bored

Whats the point?

Typical of this club everything set up to suit the losing mentality

I raised this as a concern a few weeks ago and got poo pooed

Clearly an unfair advantage he shouldn't be allowed to play

You'd never believe this was real if you didn't know it was!

Cheers for giving up the time to do it.

Enjoyed it so far, best of luck to the winners and looking forward to the restart...early season transfer errors cost me dearly.

Or from a PR point of view design a game that suits the masses  Kiss

Points are updated accordingly, within 24 hours of full time.

It has been on the home page of the game since launch that the season would run until the end of the year. The advantages of this are numerous:

  • Players don't have to wait until August 2018 to see their feedback come into play
  • 90% of players won't use the game until the end of the season as they're too far behind
  • We can re-evaluate key players to make the game more cost effective based on mid-season performances
  • No other club in the country actively runs and promotes their own Fantasy game, a relaunch has plenty of coverage potential
  • All players get the chance to go again with new prizes (hopefully bigger)

I could go on.

It was set up to be a free-to-play, harmless bit of fun between Altrincham fans. I think it's achieved it's purpose superbly considering it's still very much in its beta stage and we are along for the ride with the game as the developers add more to the website. It was always going to be a case of dipping our toes in and learning from the first half of the season.

Turd - re. Steve Foster playing. There's obviously no issue with that. I know it's your favourite internet pass time, but please stop looking for one. If you don't agree with any of the above points you're welcome to either not play next time around or message me on Facebook, but don't leave daft, unwarranted criticism on something that's been incredibly positive just because it suits your agenda. Thanks.

I've enjoyed my participation. As I'm ranked somewhere in the 30's im happy for the season to finish.

Looking for a personal improvement next season.

Thanks goes to everyone who has given their time to make this happen
