Hi everyone - here we go again! With 3 weeks until the first kick-off - September 12th - I've taken the liberty of restarting the AnswerBank League at Sky Sports –

(This is where I pretty much C & P last season’s blurb...)

As last season, we're given £100m to spend & have unlimited transfers until the Match Day deadline on Saturday, 12th September, from then on you get 5 per Game Week / 40 for the season. They've kept the "Overhaul" feature, which means that for one week in September & one week in January, *unlimited* transfers will be available, *not* coming out of the 40 per season allowance - this is always quite handy!

Rules & FAQs here -

In there, scroll down to "Captain Changes" - you should read that section.

Hopefully all the regulars will enter a couple of teams. If you've not played before & fancy having a go this season, don't worry if you know *nothing* about football - you can use the option to have a team selected at random.

When you've picked a team (or two) - yourself, or used automatic selection, name your team(s), then join the League - ours is called "AnswerBank" & the PIN you need to enter is -


You can then change the visibility of your team(s) between "Public" & "Private", depending on whether you want other Managers to be able to see the details. When your team is created, click the “Settings” button on the pitch, then click “Change team to private”.

A note here - just because I'm called the League "Chairman" doesn't mean I'm given special powers. I can't see "Private" teams & I get no other privileges.

The following links can be useful (though as they point out, not necessarily definitive) to check for injuries and suspensions prior to game days -

For the 2nd link, click "Go to Injury Table Here" - you *do not* need to set up an account.

The next link can be useful near to, or on, Game Days (though final updates can be infuriatingly late) -

Ok, I think that's covered everything needed to get the League going – I’ll post reminders every now & again, more often as the opening day nears.

I wish everyone lots of fun & good luck for the forthcoming season! :-))

I second that from Arky ^ - have fun!

This really is the last shout to get in from the start - you can join later, but you'd be missing any points from today...

Reminder - if you've not picked your Captains for today, you need to do so before kick-off at 2:00.

Bump - as shown on page 3 of this thread, there are 2 matches this evening, but the kick-off times have changed since I posted.

1st kick-off is now 6:00, so if you were going to wait to select your Captains, best look in soon...
