    Ok guys in setting this up the main thing i will need (as soon as team lists come out) will be a person/people to figure out how much each player will be worth. Any volunteers? as steve said for our last one its really a matter of finding the team lists once they are announced and figuring out a score based on: experience, goals scored and team they are playing for.

    The soon we have player values up the sooner we can start allowing people to nominate teams

    I'm willing to help, are we going to do a fantastar and put takema in midfield so he gets less points per goal or not.

    Also formations of 442 or 433 are the two I would recommend, saves on people having 8 strikers etc.

    i was going to say that attackers dont get as many points for PC goals, maybe 1 point instead of 3. and then let people put taekema as their DFer and he can get 3 points per PC goal.

    yeah there will be a certain structure they have to use

    Why limit it to formations? Why not do something like choose 3 fwds, 3 mids, 3 backs, 1 gk and one specialist?

    OK so as (hopefully) you have all read in the newsletter we have decided on the points and positions for the league. Now what i need is for people to get each team list to me as they are finalised, with exams etc. at the moment i dont really have time to go searching myself. if you are willing to email the national associations etc in order to get teams that would be great or even just a PM as soon as national teams are announced on the FIH or national association website.

    thanks guys
    NITW

    P.S. still looking for people to donate prizes
