Less than 9 hours till it closes, so any last minute sign ups better do it now!

On a separate note, I'm really not feeling confident about my UCL team. It's weird, usually I'm so optimistic about my chances in fantasy football games (until the points trickle in). I think it's my midfield. Other than Ribery, the rest are from weaker teams or not guaranteed a start. My team is definitely defence and attack heavy.

Also, how do you guys rate AC Milan's chances? They got a not so difficult group but they seem to be struggling

Who's ghaleb1988?

How was your first (half) Matchday so far?
For me, the good:
- The Porto keeper kept a cleansheet
- Ibra (captain) scored a goal
- Holtby got an assist
- Gillet (Anderlecht) also got a decent 4 points

The bad:
- Cazorla didn't do much
- I took out Pizcek last minute and he goes on to get an assist and a cleansheet. Fffuuu-

Also wondering whether to change my captain to Messi. Ibra will lose his double points of course. Depends on whether Messi will score more than 1 goal against Spartak (which is very much possible of course)

Holy cow, team from spot #2 - #90 all were separated by 1-2pts only

Congratz to THE blues as you lead the pack by 10pts. But we are just getting started

Yeah in this game a single point does matter. Especially since there are over 200, 000 players overall.
I'm so pissed at myself for not switching the captaincy to Messi (from Ibra). I played it safe and kept it with Ibra and now it cost me 8 points, which would have leapfrogged me a couple of places.

Also Benfica kept a cleansheet but I should have known that Maxi Pereira is suspended. *facepalm*

Edit: teams are separated by more than 1-2 pts. I think it takes a while for all the data to be updated. But 1 point is still important in this game

Hey    Just joined, made my team: Anony FC    Will see how they do next week

Too bad we can't see other teams yet. Apparently it's a glitch in the UCL game.
Anyway, hoping for a better run this matchday. I did quite OK last matchday. At least compared to my Dreamfooty fortunes so far anyway.

Had to transfer out Vidic. Good thing there are free transfers every matchday

Man, this week was really disappointing for me. Mainly because I forgot to change my captain from last week. I wanted to use Messi as captain (would have gotten 16 points) but I still had Ibra as captain (got 4 points). *facepalm*

Dreamfooty was decent though. Ronaldo hat trick, can't complain.

You cannot make this up.
I stuck with Ibra through MatchDay 1, made him captain on 2 matchdays. Then I sold Ibra yesterday to get Ronaldo. Cost me 2 points for the extra transfer.

Ibra goes ahead and gets FOUR assists. Ronaldo, blank. Wtf man. #fantasyFootballProblems

I've stuck with Ibra thick and thin and I guess it paid off since I'm now in the top ten of the league

But yeah I sort of forgot about this otherwise I would have taken Marcelo out of my starting lineup and earn myself a bit more points lol

Anyone still playing this? I updated the first post with the footytube UCL league rankings for each matchday

I am! But I started somewhere around QF, so mine's pretty irrelevant

Hey everyone! Can we set this up again for this season? It's coming up quick!
Hithere (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Apparently, if you're the league creator, you get spammed with email messages from the UEFA UCL fantasy league everytime someone from the league requests to set it up.

Got a few dozen of these emails lol:
"uefa Champions League Fantasy Football 2013-14 is live.

As chairman of the 2012-13 league footytube, you are in the unique position of being able to restart this league for the 2013-14 game! You are receiving this email as coyb18 can't wait any longer and wants you to get the league back up and running!"

Anyway, it's up now! Picked my team too
