Guys ... more help required.
I think something is wrong with the link provided. Initially my mate was having problems and now me. I moved off Chrome onto Internet Explorer and the link gets you nowhere. Could you guys double check the link from another computer or tablet that won't have your Fox ID. Something is going on and I'm not clever enough to work it out.
Worse still Fox Sports have locked me out of my account. I'm hoping this is temporary. I'll get back onto it tomorrow.

Yeah, IE seems to have issues (the whole thing has issues. Why are people still using it?).
Firefox and Chrome are fine though.

I'm using Chrome and no problems thus far, aside from trying to understand Rotating subs whotsit.

I'm in Whirlpool S11, which has 8 including Albert, SuarezPower, and VSB, and an H2H called "Auto League 2", which has no one I recognize, and which I did not purposefully enter.

Everyone gets put in an auto league. It's a public league. They don't know who you are, so sledge freely.

Hi Boys,
Whenever I try and gain access now I get .... RECOVER YOUR ACCOUNT!
I try by answering a few questions and get ... You cannot recover your account
Not a clue what to do next. I'm totally blocked. I fear the worst at the moment. Thankfully the league is fully set up with no further admin to be carried out.
Fox Sports continue to send me notifications of managers joining our league. I guess it's somewhere near half full at the moment. So coming along very well.
I'll keep you lads informed of my status. But, it's not looking too good at the moment.

Hooray .... I'm back in the room. Getting a little concerned there. From out of the blue it once again allows me access.
10 places left with 2 weeks to go.

I don't get it - is Whirlpool S11 a H2H league?

If so, are you starting a regular league as well?

Correct, it is a Head to Head. Whirlpool Starting 11 has just recruited its final participant and is now full!
I am happy to create a Classic League. I'll post the details here

So we are up and running. For any new Fantasy Managers wishing to give Fox Sports a go, entry details are below. It's pretty straight forward and pretty similar to the Official Premier League site. I've entered the league details on the giant Australian multi purpose Whirlpool Forum. It has a strong Sports Section, that Starting 11 members have been linked to in the past.
Usual Fox Registration https://eplfantasy.foxsports.com.au/
Go to Fantasy EPL
Whirlpool Starting 11 H2H League Code EJP5SER9 (H2H now Full. Please see Classic)

Can someone explain with a full example how the Rolling Lockout works:

5. Rolling Lockout

There will be a Rolling Lockout in place this year for Transfers and Substitutions.
You can transfer and Substitute players right through each Game Week, up until the time of the start of their Team's actual match. Players are locked into your Team only at the time that their actual EPL match has started.
For example - A player (‘Player A’), may be transferred for another player (‘Player B’) at any time after the Fantasy score of previous Fantasy Game Week have been finalised until either the next match in which Player A is scheduled to play in or the next match in which Player B is scheduled to play in (whichever match is first).


So, I get DeGea (sure starter, strong GK) and Macey (very unlikely starter, with ARS playing Friday), and put DeGea on bench and Captain on Macey.

Vice Captain on a strong player who plays Friday or Saturday (e.g. Jesus).

When Macey inevitably does not play, DeGea will auto-sub in, and I wait to see how Jesus does. If he does well, then his points are doubled as Captain.

If he does not, how do I get the Captain onto Lukaku or Kane, who play Sunday? Or can I? If not, what's the point of the Rolling Lockout?

You can't. You need to make sure neither your captain (Macey) or the new captain (Lukaku or Kane), have played.

I think you can reverse trades, if they haven't played. You just can't change formation.

I've got Hanley as one of my fillers, but if I see he's starting, I assume I can trade him for another NEW DEF who isn't, once the lineups are shown.

I guess we find out in a few days. But if that's the case, then a NEW filler and ARS filler should cover the first 7 GWs quite nicely. NEW 1,2,4,6,7 & ARS 2,3,5,6,7.

I'm just playing it like I do fpl. I haven't paid much attention to the rules. Maybe it's like fantrax in that you can change players up until kickoff

You have to play it like Sportal, not FAPL. You'll get killed. Getting the captain right is more important than getting pts off the bench. Most weeks, you never use your bench, and when you do, it's for a few pts.

Having two bites at a captain can get you 10+ pts every week.

A NEW filler is a must, and an ARS, BUR or TOT filler can fill the gaps. Macey (ARS GK) and a NEW DEF will do it best. GKs don't go missing too often, so I'm happy to take a 0 for an unexpected MIA.

OK, I'm having trouble moving my captaincy. I think that it may lock captain or vice.
It's just other players you can transfer. Or they're a bunch of idiots who don't know what they're doing.
