New season new hopes, let's do better this year smile.gif

I was in contact with BP and he's retired for good. He had enough of the 3.30am deadlines and captain commitments were taking it's toll. He did say though he'll pop in from time to time to see how we're doing but has been staying away to avoid temptation.
Anyway, it's time to get the ball rolling and decide on who'll be our captain next year smile.gif

Obviously, I won't be in the running smile.gif so it only leaves 3 - Rapid, Spurs Crew and Ice66. As for the others, I doubt they'll be on and it will be interesting to see who returns biggrin.gif

I can do this only during winter - too much real football to deal with.

thanks for opening the new thread. i should have done it.

it's sad that bp have decided to not only step down from captain but step away from fantasy footie altogether. it sucks that he's in the west coast. hopefully he'll come back and give us some moral support later.

as for captaincy, my vote goes to SC. if not, rapid, please step up and be our captain, even if it's just for the winter.

Spurs Crew captain/Rapid vice captain sounds like a plan smile.gif.

Guys, I’ve spoken with SC, he will step up and be our captain this year. With either myself or Rapid as vice.

Since it’s his first year as captain, let’s remember to send him our teams before the deadline. Preferably much before the deadline so he can post our lineup, as he did mention that he might not be around during deadline each week.

Let’s do this guys. I know without bp, it feels a bit strange, but we will have to survive, until he decides to come back next season... and that’s a big if. Last but not least, let’s go warriors! dwarf.gif

I'd also suggest to post teams here in order SC's messenger could be full... Let's make it easier for everyone! thumbsup.gif

As for VC, if NL is not against, SC, Ice and me should be able to post line-ups...

That's why posting into the thread helps as opposed to the PM one! thumbsup.gif

yes, i would definitely encourage that. a few of us (in fact, most of us) regularly posts our teams here, so let's keep this up.

Ice contacted me and asked to be captain of the Warriors this season, and after thinking about it for a while, I've accepted his request.

I do however have a number of things I'd like from you guys to help both me and the team as a whole:

1. I'm not often on the forum on Saturday mornings around deadline, especially during the hockey season which is September-March. So I'd like everyone to send me their sides by the Friday night, let's say 10pm GMT. That'll give everyone time to read up on team news and make their decisions. Obviously that doesn't count for Week 1 because of the different deadline time. In other weeks, if all decisions aren't made by then, an indication on what the team is will be enough most likely. If for whatever reason you don't like posting the side on this thread then a PM will do I guess.

2. I think we need to do a better job of talking about our transfers throughout each week. I always tried to post my side at the end of the week with an idea of what I might be doing in the next few days. I did this to help try and make decisions on my own team but also to maybe help others in the team out. If everyone could do that, it would be really helpful I think. Would also eliminate any silly transfers that we all make from time to time.

3. Regular communication in this thread is essential. If someone in the side doesn't post their team for numerous weeks in a row or doesn't make changes to their side then I'll be trying to get rid of them. Signing up for the Arena is a commitment for the season and I want us to win it, and this won't happen if we don't play properly all the way through.

If we do those things then I think we have enough good FPL players to win it. Let's have some fun!

In the theme of starting the ball rolling, here's the side I've got currently:

Aguero
Arnautovic
King

Salah ©
Mane
Lucas
Bernardo Silva
Hudson-Odoi

Robertson
Mendy
Shaw
Bednarek
Wan-Bissaka

Fabianski
Foster

I'll provide some commentary on it tomorrow, but for now it's bed time.

SC, as the founding member of team warriors, I'm really happy that you've accepted my request to be our captain for this year. agree.gif yes.gif

when bp left, I was really worried that we would have no captain and that our team will fall apart. but i know we've got a few good members here, yourself, SP, rapid, snipes and shiru to name a few (hope ecvtan comes back and joins us), so it would be a pity for our team to go our separate ways. out of all the members, i feel you've got the best quality to be our captain and i know you will be a great leader.

i agree with all the points you've raised and i will try my best to post my team up every week. i will also ask advice from time to time... i.e. to buy a player before price rise (and dropping a player), when to use those chips, etc. i hope that everyone can do the same and it shall be an enjoyable season, i'm sure. remember, there are no silly questions. when in doubt, always ask!

this is our team cry: let's go warriors! dwarf.gif
