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! :-))

Bump - we've 9 teams so far...
Hi Lie-in King I'm hopefull many of these team players will re-join us:

... and of course all new players are more than welcome.
Got one team in and working on the other, wondering about a name change for my second team.
How about. Mamya's sponge bath on stand by... If you don't get up.
It's on the shortlist Arky.

Now then, I require assistance from you guys - I have auto selected Team 1 but how do I add a team and also get the 'Auto Select' option for that one?
I don't know Mamya, I couldn't find it either that's how I start and to see who it chooses, sorry I can't help.
Seem to have managed it now somehow Arky, ta x
Good stuff :-)
