    Nah too much hassle for me. Hopefully someone else does.

    Whoever was the admin of the main league last season just needs to reactivate the league, then everyone who was in the league last season will automatically be added when they make a team.

    Thanks for the mention @FC Ronaldo

    They've released a few other prices as well by the way. Pogba looks quite promising at that price, as long as we get a decent DCM to set him free! Not sure if the game is definitely released tomorrow, they said WC 10/7 so could be.

    Heaton - £5.0m
    Fabregas - £7.0m
    Knockaert - £6.0m
    Lacazette - £10.5m
    J.King - £7.5m (fwd)
    Benteke - £8.0m
    Klaasen - £7.5m
    Ince - £6.0m
    Maguire - £5.0m
    Salah - £9.0m
    Sane - £8.5m
    Redmond - £6.5m
    J.Allen - £5.5m
    Pogba - £8.0m
    Gayle - £6.5m
    Alli - £9.5m

    Shame that King is a forward this season. Very interested to see Lukaku's price, think he could be the most expensive striker this season

    I don't think he'll be as much as Kane. Maybe Kane 13.0 and Lukaku 12.0. Aguero will probably be around 12.0 as well.

    Good point. Kane will deservedly be the premium striker / player this season. Followed by Sanchez and Lukaku. I can see Aguero falling slightly from previous seasons

    Pogba at £8m could be a steal. Surely if the only midfielder United are signing is a DM, Pogba will be the man behind the striker?

    If Pogba is valued at 8, he'd be a great deal

    Excited. Lukaku will surely be in my team and Lindelof might as well.

    If Lukaku isn't an outrageous price, the combo of those 2 could be pretty rewarding, especially for the opening couple of months.

    A wild card for a week that reverts your squad back to its previous state afterwards basically.

    Replaces the almost pointless "All Out Attack" chip.

    @Levo will renew it when he gets a chance and we'll threadmark and bump the hell out of the code to get people in. Plenty of time yet.

    Pretty happy with my side, had to move away from my favoured 3-5-2 formation due to the prices and gone with a traditional 4-4-2

    I might move from my 3-4-3 I used for last three seasons in favour of 4-4-2... but I'm still torn on my second premium striker - Lacazette, Kane, Jesus/Kun all look good!

    Good work @Levo

    Would be good if we could have the list of usernames vs their fantasy football team names in the opening post. Was a bit confusing to know whose team was what last season

    I'll probably join this one. Prefer the sun one but need a proper league as most of my mates have grown bored of these now.

    Tough to get more than one of Lukaku, Sanchez, and Kane in your team without weakening the squad. Could have gone with Sanchez and Lukaku but decided to make a stronger team with Lukaku up front (could switch to Kane also but I like Utd's opening fixtures). Anyone with both Lukaku and Kane up front?

    I'd gone with Lukaku and Kane originally, but have swapped Kane for Jesus now. Kane's normally a slow starter in the league, has still never scored in the league in August. Might leave him for a wildcard after a couple weeks

    Yeah my thinking is if Lukaku hits a bad patch I have 1m available to switch them at any time which could be very useful. I also don't see Kane's price going up much just because it's the highest price in the game whereas Lukaku could be switched in if he starts better by loads of Kane owners
