    We have had the idea of running a League 2 fantasy football competition for the up coming season and wanted to know your thoughts or who would be interested?

    We have collected all the league 2 squads and they have been listed into a spreadsheet. This file can be sent to anyone who wishes to take part so that you can pick your XI. Each player will have a value assigned to them and you will have to pick your team within the budget - plus a manager. (Budget not yet decided)

    The rules will include the following:
    *3 points every time your players score
    *2 points for every assist
    *3 points for defenders and Gk's if they keep a clean sheet.
    *1 point for every 80+ minutes played
    *-1 point for a yellow card
    *-2 for a red card
    *-1 for an own goal.

    10 Transfers can be made over the season once the season has started before then any number can be made.
    You get 5 free transfers IF a player on your team becomes injured and the transfer is forced. After the 5 they come out of your total 10.

    A fuller, clearer definition of the rules will be published once people come back with their interest. Please invite fans of other league 2 clubs, the more the merrier!

    Any feedback would also be greatly appreciated in any additions or changes to the rules!

    UTG!

    Sorry manager would be extra 3 points for every game one and extra 1 for a draw. Minus 25 if your manager is sacked!

    Does anyone have any idea how to post a universal thread so every league two team's board on here can see it?

    Currently one of the down sides of this site, is that you cannot multiboard, there is a way to go global but that would hit every single 92 club board and probably hack a lot of people off.

    So that leaves two other ways left that I know:

    1. Post a thread under the League Two section, probably a waste of time though, because from what I've seen, rarely do people bother to look, so finally and the best option is to...

    2. Create the main thread on the Gill's board or the League Two board, then spam a link (thread) on to every other board, which sends them directly to your main thread <ok>

    Probably best if your main thread is on the Gill's board, I can control any issues better from our own board.


    thanks

    Thanks for all the replies guys! & thanks for the suggestions BRB will certainly be doing the second one!
    Full squad list with values will be ready shortly.
    Would everyone wanting to take part be okay to give me their emails in a PM in order to send them the file?
    Otherwise we need to think of another way around getting the squads to you so you can pick your team.
    UTG!

    Please can I make a suggestion, that if members do choose to exchange email addresses that they DON'T do it on the board.
    It would be better to do it via Private Messaging, as already indicated by thegillsfan.

    Yes, we are certainly going to have a restriction of some sort. I imagine you will only be able to choose 3 players from each team, it's something me and 'thegillsfan' will discuss.

    Thanks for the great response, we are currently working to get it sorted as quick as we can so you can all pick your teams ahead of the new season. We will let you all know when everything is ready. Thanks.

    We are currently going through the process of giving each player a value. I will then send you out the list to everyone who wishes to take part.
    You can then pick your team and let me know it by commenting in the official thread that i will create on here. This is also where i will post the current scores on the doors through out the season.
