I notice that Alty FC kitman Steve Foster is currently occupying third position:  https://altrincham.fantasyclubfootball.co.uk/team-standings Insider knowledge alert there, surely? Controversial...!
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

How appropriate!  Grin Grin

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 think this has been a great success.
Bit of free fun for the fans.
Why do some people have to always try and find a negative.
Thanks to all that has made this possible
Andrew you are correct.

There are a lot to us who play this game who are involved at the club.
Media, ground staff, kit men and many more volunteers , long may it continue .
Parkinson picks the team, I'm sure he never consults any volunteers before he does.
