One free team
Then either 2 more for £5 or 5 for £10
Then blocks available for between £2.50 and £5 per team.

Hard to imagine me doing more than 6

I've just imagined you doing seven teams. It was easy! ;)

Just thrown a team together whilst drinking my morning cuppa. Was a piece of cake compared to the Sky game. Now that's tough!

Am also very pleased to see they haven't messed about with the rules and mechanics of the game. :)

No but they do list more than 5 players from each club so it's swings and roundabouts.

Does anyone else have a problem that it won’t let you submit your team?

I’m getting caught in an endless loop of confirming my linked telegraph account ...

Thanks - just made a new account and it worked.

So straight away it’s a 10 player game for £44m budget :wink:
Reckon most savvy players will have similar starting teams - up to 5 or 6 no-brainers. Forgot this about TFF.

Also - don’t want to say it out loud but 60 seconds on bramernic site and 5 mins looking at the player list and I reckon its pretty obvious what the best formation is!? It’s one that I think most (certainly not the masses) will not use??

Just re read it and there is a different figure in "the game" section, 8 for £9.99 early bird compared to the terms and conditions which says 5.

I'm going to hang back after the free team as it has the hallmarks off a cock up regarding the early bird.

Key contributions? Bit of a grey area, and points not added straight away either.

What defines a key contribution?

As expected, asking me to buy a season ticket so as to be able to buy more teams, although I already have a 2018/19 season ticket (needed in order to get world cup entries), and the office page showing that I already have a 2018/19 season ticket. Ggggrrrrr, every eff year something like this happens. Will wait until office hours next week to sort I s'pose.

I blew all my season ticket credits on the World Cup game. Will there be another early bird offer for the main game or do I now have to pay the rip-off prices?

Prize money down again as well less places for potential prize winners.
TFF are shooting themselves in the foot imo and will be lucky to last at this rate.
Unless there's a better offer on teams then I doubt I will play.

It's an 8 man game imho. They've absolutely butchered some of the prices.

Intrigued to know the other two.

And come the end of September, when Salah hasn't scored a goal, who's to say they haven't over-priced him? ;)

Don't get me wrong, I think he'll score well again but nothing close to last season.

I'd have had him as a striker, just behind Kane with Aguero (who've both scored well for more than one season) at £6.8m.

The other two are also midfielders - one of which has been misclassified again like he was in the past.

Thanks.

Still too subjective for my liking, to many "may be given" remarks in the terms. So basically down to one person's interpretation, could be fixed.

Rubbish how someone doesn't get a KC if the ball rebounds off the woodwork, or gets fouled before a freekick.

There are far far far too many KCs awarded as it is IMO. Only two less points than a goal for often negligible moments.

I can't get in. It asks for a password that has both upper and lower case and numbers. Mine is purely lower case and always has been.'

There is an option for "forgotten password" but I haven't.

It seems that TFF have though!

I got in using the app and with an all lower case password. Then saw it's definitely £10 for five more teams and thought I'd leave it at just the one for now.
