    If anyone wants to see how we do it; then check out the father of the game on the FSU board...

    https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=176308&page=1

    This is how the game is played....

    * We basically run our own little Ligue 1 together with the same teams.

    * Each entrant selects their team (Lens, Troyes, Rennes, PSG etc) at the start of the game and takes the role of predicition manager for the season.

    * Each week, I shall post the fixture list for that week

    * You simply, say whether it shall be a home-win, away-win or draw, by using any method you which... (w-d-l or 0-1-2 or simply by highlighting) As you do, for the other predicition games in BS. But you do NOT need to post scores only the outcome of the game. Who will win, or whether it will end up as a draw (tie game.)

    * For every game that you get right, you get one goal.

    So, who do I play?

    * You play, the team your real-life team is playing that weekend.

    * So if you have Auxerre as your team and they play Rennes at home, then you will play whoever has Rennes as their team. Simple.

    So how do I win a match?

    * Your aim is to obviously score the highest goals for that week (10)

    * You win, by outscoring your oppenent...

    So How do I win overall?

    * As with any league, the scores between the two are exactly like those in a proper league match. 0 for defeat, 1 for a draw, 3 for a win.

    * You win, when you lead the table after all the games have been played.

    * There is also prizes for the top-scorer too. I'm still stumped if we can get any prizes. I may have to travel to France, just to get something - failing that I'll go to Calais for the weekend and buy some cheap French wine. :D

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rules and regulations

    * Predicition Threads or possibly one mammoth thread shall open up its doors normally on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Probably the latter, given certain Friday matches in Ligue 1.

    * You must post before the matches kickoff be it three days or three minutes. If there are games that are still to be played later in the day, then you are free to post them and get some goals. I will not accept predicitions after kickoff for those games...

    * If you fail to post then your goal count shall be the number of goals the 'real-life' team scored that weekend.

    * If you fail to post for a period of consecutive weeks, your place may be jeopardised.

    * Real-life games that are postponed do not affect the outcome of games played in the Fantasy league. You carry on playing your own oppenent as normal, only that game will not be counted on the Fantasy picks...

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Example

    Here's is an example of how the system works...

    So let's say here are the fixtures for one week...

    Nice v Lyon
    St-Etienne v Monaco
    Le Mans v Strasbourg
    Troyes v Nancy
    Lille v Auxerre
    Marseille v Bordeaux
    Metz v Nantes
    Rennes v PSG
    Sochaux v Ajaccio
    Toulouse v Lens

    Let's say my team is PSG and Nanbawan chooses his beloved Rennes. Oooo. And we happen to face off this week. What are the chances of that?

    I pick:

    Nice v Lyon (tie)
    St-Etienne v Monaco (tie)
    Le Mans v Strasbourg
    Troyes v Nancy (tie)
    Lille v Auxerre
    Marseille v Bordeaux
    Metz v Nantes
    Rennes v PSG (tie)
    Sochaux v Ajaccio
    Toulouse v Lens

    And Nanba picks;

    Nice v Lyon
    St-Etienne v Monaco
    Le Mans v Strasbourg
    Troyes v Nancy (tie)
    Lille v Auxerre (tie)
    Marseille v Bordeaux
    Metz v Nantes
    Rennes v PSG
    Sochaux v Ajaccio
    Toulouse v Lens (tie)

    And after all that blood, sweat and tears the scores come in....

    And we get....

    Nice 0-3 Lyon
    St-Etienne 1-2 Monaco
    Le Mans 2-0 Strasbourg
    Troyes 2-0 Nancy
    Lille 1-0 Auxerre
    Marseille 4-2 Bordeaux
    Metz 0-2 Nantes
    Rennes 1-1 PSG
    Sochaux 3-1 Ajaccio
    Toulouse 0-0 Lens

    So, by some quick calculations - the scores are in and I got 5 - yippee...

    And Nanbawan gets - 5 too. So the score would end 5-5. We would both get a point each for the draw and this would be the make-up of the league. Everyone else will play someone else. So if you were in charge of Marseille you would predicting off with the head coach of Bordeaux etc

    Again, I highly reccomend if you are in any doubt. Consult the FSU forum and how we go about it in there. Direct any queries you have, to me...

    If you like this idea and want to participate then make yourself known here... Just state whether it would be a good idea and if you would be willing to participate...

    Oh and I get PSG - no moaning....... :D

    I'm willing to allow posters to have direct priority over their favoured teams (possibly sl7vk with Nancy ;))

    Regulars have a higher position to enter than anyone else... :)

    I'll play if you don't fill up with regulars. Are there many Nice fans? I'll take them if not, but I'm pretty flexible. Qza

    We'll see Quango.

    If all the regulars want to play, then there is nothing I can do.

    I'll sketch you in for Nice for the time being... :)

    I'm free like a butterfly...Not that they live very long, I should have taken another example.

    If nobody else takes Rennes before the beginning of the season, I'll be up to the duty...There are chances I'll be in Switzerland by this time though.

    Since I'm the only Alsatian here, i guess i'll have to take Strasbourg. I'm not sure i'll be able to post before every game, though. I've got a real life, you know....



    Well, a real life which is consisting mostly in reading inferior fiction and comics, while lying half-asleep in my bed the whole day through.

    I'll alter the posting restrictions and make them last any time you like. So if you want to do them a full week in advance or even a 1 day... I'll allow that. I'll open the following week's predicitions after the preceding games have finished...

    If you even want to post 4 weeks worth of predictions. I'll allow that too...

    We'll make one main thread for predictions, so it won't be hard to miss....

    I'll take Marseille if Zolta will allow it, but since I don't post much in the OM forum I'm happy to defer to someone who does. That's only fair. My second choice is St. Etienne, and if that doesn't work I could live with Nantes as well.

    I'm in.

    I'd like to take Toulouse, but I have to differ to Laeti or Randy first.

    I could take Lille, are there any Lille fans around?


    If not, Monaco.

    If not, Metz.

    If nobody wants Toulouse, I take it, but i doubt it.
    I must recognize I'm not the one who deserve it the most in the huge TFC fan group in this forum.

    Anyway, if Toulouse isn't possible, Auxerre

    I may not be a regular, but can i join up. I'd like to be Lyon but if a more established poster comes along and would like Lyon they can by all means take them. My Second choice would be Nantes.
