PostSubject: hello and help!   Wed Aug 18, 2010 9:41 pm

Hello all, im new to these boards, from NY, USA. My favorite teams to watch are Man U, Chelsea, and Arsenal (is it allowed to like all 3? lol).

In the last year or so i have become a big football fan (ill try not to call it soccer haha) as i watched the end of last season of the EPL and also the world cup this summer, so i wanted to try my hand at managing a fantasy team. Its hard for me to get news of the EPL here exept online, so i figured this would be a good place to get some questions answered, if you guys dont mind:

1) Can anyone tell me when fabregas is expeceted to return? i chose him for my fantasy team only to find that he didnt play in the first game.
2) If i had to choose between fletcher or scholes for my team, which would you recommend?
3) Why doesn't carrick see more time? is he currently injured or just out of favor?
4) Is milner likely to play this coming weekend for Man City? or is he not yet eligible after the transfer?
5) Is there a good website to go to where i can find out who will be included in lineups, who is injured, etc. each week? Then i wont have to bother all of u with these questions haha.

Thanks guys! Very Happy

If i should post this in a different section let me know.

Welcome to the board.

Lots of questions. I will answer them later on tonight.

We do have a number of members that play fantasy football and you will find some information .

Curious about your user name is that the company you work for?

Also how did you stumble on to our site?

Welcome to the board mate, just thought I'd point out that if you are doing the same fantasy league as us (fantasy.premierleague.com) then you get a ROUGH idea of who is injured, suspended or doubtful when you pick your team. The "i" box will be brown if doubtful (small injury) or red if injured or suspended

1. Fabregas was deemed by Wenger not to be match fit, with the late return to training from the World Cup and being away with Spain in Mexico until a couple of days before the Liverpool game. He should play this weekend against Blackpool as Arsenal have picked up another injury in Nasri being out for a month.

2+3. Hard to say between Flecther and Scholes, both are susceptible to rotation. Flecther seems to play the big games against the top teams and Scholes is 35 and won't play like he did last week every game. Carrick played in the Charity Shield so he's not injured, but is also rotated and is probably a little out of favour due to the poor year he had last season.

4. Milner is eligible to play right away and will likely see some action against Liverpool Monday. However City have a boat load of midfielders so there will be times he doesn't play.

5. Sites that maybe helpful.

Thanks a lot Red. The name is just meant to be silly, its from the movie Step Brothers with Will Ferrell. =] does the canuck in your name mean you're canadian?

I came across this site because someone (possibly you?) posted they had made a league and asked people to join on the ESPN soccernet fantasy forums (im doing that one as well). I scored alright in the ESPN league (53) but poorly in the EPL league (35). I actually joined your talk football mini league when u posted about it on the ESPN forums, have fun beating up on me lol. Sad

Anyway thanks for the responses. Now time to fix my midfield before i end up in last place...

Glad to be here, thanks for the nice welcome. I'm from New York, just over an hour from NYC. Heard of Poughkeepsie?

I have heard of it. I am about 400 miles from there about an hour North of Buffalo. I have driven down the I-90 as far as Albany so that's close to where you are.
