    90 mins remaining until the deadline which is the first match between Turkey and Italy.

    We have 9 teams registered which is a decent effort, good luck everyone!

    The FPL site has launched today.
    Every year it seems to get earlier but this is quite a jump.

    True. Usually it's not available until July.

    What time frame are we looking at to kick off the new season? I may (probably 30-50% likely) have someone who is interested in playing if we need numbers

    First match is Friday August 13 - just an FYI. I would imagine most drafts would start the last week of July or August 1 at the latest.

    I am sure we'll need multiple new teams.
    Are you now 100% confirmed?

    Looks like we need clarification of who is in lower leagues and some extra promotions up if necessary

    Hopefully those teams (Tangers, CSS and Keysersoze) will return and we can get a few new ones to fill in the remaining spots, Sand league must survive! Dust league bit the dust some years back but Sand and the Sandy Cup must continue. Wish I knew others into EPL, all of my friends mostly just follow NFL. But hopefully you guys know some others to recruit.

    in your ordering, relegated teams go below the non promoted teams from the lower league.

    The order should be if only two got promoted:

    Using the end of season rankings

    3
    4
    5
    6
    Relegated #7
    Relegated #8
    Promoted #1
    Promoted @2

    If Keysersoze Wanderers and ChrisSuttonsSlippers do not confirm, then Virgil Reality and Kopite Juniors would advance to Very Small Rocks.

    Thanks for the confirmation Hal, that is how I would do it also as relegation should mean relegation. If 1 of the 2 confirm then we'll have another one to sort if indeed both of those teams tied.

    In the "real" FPL game, the tiebreaker is who had fewer transfers. But I don't recall ever seeing that in our rules. And, personally, I don't like it. If you got to the same number of points, why is it better or worse that one owner did it with fewer transfers. (And, of course, it doesn't matter anyway unless someone kept a record of the transfers from last year.....)

    If there is no existing rule, I'd vote for going straight to a coin flip (or some other random generator if it is necessary to decide). (With two slots still unconfirmed, maybe it doesn't matter....)

    Im not personally upset if i lose out on a tiebreaker whether its fewer subs or a coin flip, it is just what it is, probably should be something ironed out because it is possible it could happen
