How the season will pan out - article [news.bbc.co.uk] :)

Anybody entering a fantasy football team? I have made the final adjustments and I am looking forward to collecting a cheque for £250,000 at the end of the season (well we can all dream)

I hate to say it, but I think it will be Man Utd again even though I would like to see somebody else for a change...

El Tel backed Chelski last night on sky sports news - I have to admit that they will be in there with a shot at it this season - Money can but you success - Man U and Arsenal both had fortunes to spend and they have delivered.

That said it is unlikely Chelsea will get it right the first time round - hopeless away support for a start.

I am with you for Alec to clinch another.

I think it's time for Liverpool to finally deliver - they underperformed badly last season.

I'm not bothered who wins - but I confidently predict Bolton will annoy the southern media by staying up again :)

Top 6

Man Utd
Arsenal
Chelsea
Newcastle
Liverpool
Southampton

I think Southampton have got a good little side together now - the rest is a bit predictable.

Anyone for First Division? - I know already started but Hey a lot of the true fans are lower down the leagues.

West Ham. (Promoted)
West Brom. (Promoted)
Sheffield Utd.
Nottingham Forest.
Norwich. (Play off winners - I can Dream)
Reading.

My one concern about Chelski is that while they have a dream team, you can't buy team spirit and nobody has any idea about how the team will gel.

I will be following West Ham all season and from their early performances I don't think they will have too much trouble bouncing back. I would like to see Ipswich back also.

Man Utd for the Premiership and possibly the FA Cup.... but I don't think that they have the squad (yet) to do the Champions League - but I'd love to be proved wrong!

As long as Liverpool aren't in the Top 5 (where they definitely don't belong!), I'll be a happy fisk.

Hi Dayo_Uk

Why Ipswich... I think they are a good club and I would like to see them back in the Premiership. They were unluckey last season just missing out on the playoffs.

No prizes for guessing who you support ;)

This is my Fantasy football line up

Howard MAN U £2.5m

Lundekvam SOU £2.5m
Cunningham BIR £2m
Alpay AST £2m
Johnson CHE £2.5m

Pires ARS £5m
Emerton BLA £3m
J.Cole CHE £3m

Van Nistelrooy MAN U £7m
Owen LIV £6m
Di Canio CHA £3m

What do you think?

Could really use some advice on the defence and Howard as keeper.

this bloody game is keeping me up at night!

Hi Limbo,

What fantasy football are you using? I would have Harry Kewell in my team. He will have a lot of assists and a fair helping of goals from the wing.

Sticky me if you don't want to post it

I play The Suns rules but a mate at work does his own comp which we all enter.

Looked at Kewell - but unfortunately he plays for the other half of Merseyside - I am not usually biased but in this case... £4.5m seems a little over priced ;)

Looked at crow-barring Rooney in there but really can't find the extra £500,000.

<Added>

correct sums for the team in the post above

Van Nistelrooy MAN U £7.5m
Owen LIV £6.5m
Di Canio CHA £3.5m

totals £40m

Limbo I like that team but wheres HENRY.

My predictions for the season: Chelsea win it with ARSENAL in 2nd but this season at least with a champions league semi under the belt:-)

Henry is in my revised version

I ditched Lundekvam - and took a risk on De Zeuuw at Pompy. Owens out on his little red a**e and Hónreee makes the front three a little more intimidating.

Looks as though I am close to submission :

Howard - MAN U £2.5m
De Zeeuw - POR £1.5m
Alpay - AST £2m
Cunningham - BIR £2m
Johnson - CHE £2.5m
J.Cole - CHE £3m
Emerton - BLA £3m
Pires - ARS £5m
Van Nistelrooy - MAN U £7.5m
Henry ARS - £7.5 m
Di Canio CHA - £3.5m

S Taylor...........ARS 3.6m
D Mills............LEE 3.3m

L Amoruso..........BLA 3.4m
U Ehiogu...........MID 3.4m
J Gronkjaer........CHE 3.5m
J Jenas............NEW 3.7m
J Redknapp.........TOT 3.2m

T Henry............ARS 9.9m
R van Nistelrooy...MU 9.5m

Okay, how about an american twist? Football over here is not soccer, so I'll take Emmitt Smith (formerly a Dallas Cowboy, now a Phoenix Cardinal) to win the Premiership! ah ha!

Limbo,

I can't believe you've not gone for Unsworth.

Blobfisk

Thats a good looking side - Nice to see you picked Unsworth - always worth having a couple penalty takers in there.

I am having a go at the beeb too - nice free comp with some excellent prizes - check out third place - Table footbal deluxe stylee

Team:

K Keller TOT 3.0m
P Konchesky CHA 3.1m
D Unsworth EVE 3.4m
K Cunningham BIR 3.0m
A De Zeeuw POR 2.9m
B Emerton BLA 3.5m

You wrote as I wrote :)

I tried to fit him in the sun dreamteam but to fit in the big guns you have to slacken the defence IMO

I know what you mean.

He's a must for me!

Jeffers might be worth going for too, especially if he does move to us!

msg:304097
 2:26 pm on Aug 15, 2003 (gmt 0)

He's not bloody coming back!

I hope

Still your right - if he does he'll partner either Rooney and Raderz and could net a few and at 2.5m in the Sun might be a nice transfer in October - Di canio out, Jeffers added to the line up and then unsworth in for De Zeeuw. Nice.

Lets hope the run at highbury doesn't continue tomorrow.
