Div 2 had 3 invalid teams at the weekend resulting in 3 point fines each.

  • Dynamo Chigley
  • FC Raymo
  • Norfolk and Chance

Please remember to select a new team selection if you buy players in the pot bids or your previous team selection could easily become invalid. This will happen if you drop players that you had selected in your previous team selection.

14:48 - DBFFL2 - The Dogs FFL - by Paul Holloway

The 2nd FREE half-season of the new DBFFL2 starts on Fri 14th Dec @9pm when registration closes and the player auction begins. This will be open to everyone to play as I'm looking to ramp-up the numbers and if you want to be in the same division as someone else then create and share a group code which will be used at division allocation time.

So anyone who didn't manage to get involved the first time around is more than welcome to register @www.thedogsffl.com - if you are an existing Season1 manager you just need to login with your existing details and buy a new FREE season ticket so you get allocated to a division.

08:55 - Mistake - by Paul Holloway

I had a network issue last night when I closed the results meaning it got closed twice. I'll correct it as soon as I can get the SQL management interface working which appears to be having issues this morning so I've raised a ticket with the ISP.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

15:19 - Hmm - bugger - by Paul Holloway

Well it appears as I was typing my email to move the bid deadline, someone applied them (Steve or Duncan?)... This makes it very difficult for me to now move the deadline as the bid values for these bids are known so all I can do is add an extra bid deadline for 9pm tonight for anyone who needs it and failed to bid earlier due to the website issues...

15:15 - Pot Bid Deadline moved - by Paul Holloway

Since the website was down this morning and has only just come back, the bid deadline will be moved to 9pm tonight.

15:33 - Anonymous Tipster's Season Guide - by Paul Holloway

Our Anonymous Tipster has been at it again folks - here's his predictions for the coming season but then again what does he know...

Div 1

  • Amtel Athletic - As always bankrolled by his BP pension fund, paid top dollar for a lot of untested players. (9th)
  • Bocca Seismic - I donít see this being a squad challenging for the title maybe at the other end though. (15th)
  • Crosshoppers - Poor squad this, 6 forwards but not many goals forecast. (13th)
  • IRPG FC - Defensively sound and with Erikson scoring for fun they may have a chance, forwards may let the title push down. (4th)
  • Jacob & Sons - Relieved to see Hazard stay at Chelsea for now, has potential to be top 6. (3rd)
  • Jet Lag Hotspurs - A great squad on paper, not sure it translates to points in this game though. (14th)
  • Mad Jims XI - Crazy Jim, not good odds to win the league expensive squad assembled and sure to change. (1st)
  • NFT XI - Absolutely average, will finish 8th or 9th. (8th)
  • No Responsible Adult - Kane and 16 other fellas, gonna struggle. One injury and he is done. (7th)
  • NSB Ballhitters - Couple of tried and tested point scorers, a few more unknowns. A season of transition ahead, possibly ending with large inter team transfers to shore up the ship. (11th)
  • Red Star Athens - A squad of reserve players, may struggle. (10th)
  • Scrubs XI - Very defensive minded squad, in the mould of Mourinho. If Lukaku doesnít fire or is played as a wing back his goose is cooked. Bottom half. (12th)
  • Storm Utd - Good breadth of strikers, not enough midfield goals to make a title challenge. (6th)
  • The Beached Whalers - Not enough prolific first choice players here, gonna struggle. (16th)
  • The Naked Scientists - Going for the unprecedented three divisional titles in three years. Top 6 squad. (2nd)
  • The SE Men - Solid squad, no stand out exciting. Expect money to be thrown at this to challenge. (5th)

Div 2

  • AC Swamp - Poor squad this, relegation favourites. (16th)
  • AFC Etudient - Lots of points in this squad, practically a steering job to the title. (2nd)
  • Chelton Hatters - Plenty of money spent, promotion is clearly the aim. I think they will make it. (3rd)
  • CSKA - Was dropping the Cantley akin to Samson cutting losing his hair off, for the first time in living memory no Erikson in the squad. Not very impressive relegation candidates. (14th)
  • Dels Trotters - Gonna be a struggle to keep this lot up. (13th)
  • Dog on the Tyne - Not enough up front, likely to be playing Div 2 football again next season. (11th)
  • Frampdoria - No, just No, another relegation favourite. (15th)
  • Gemini - Here are you champions ladies and gents. (1st)
  • Hawkins Heroes FC - Plenty of points in the squad, every chance of a profitable season. (4th)
  • KO Islanders - The runaway winners of Div 3 last season, looks like a squad of subs, not many first-choice players here. This will be a lot harder than last season. (10th)
  • Lokomotiv Leyton - Good squad, these could go close. Squad tinkering will be the downfall here. (5th)
  • Riverside Reds - Probably too light in midfield to be considered title winners. (9th)
  • Slackers FC - Probably short of a good striker but top half potential. (8th)
  • Synthetic Cream FC - An exciting squad potential to go all the way. (6th)
  • The Cobblers - A steady squad, would not be surprised to see them near the top. (7th)
  • The Phantom Trouts - Reliant on Kane, will the Div 2 curse of owning Kane strike again and end in relegation? (12th)

Div 3

  • 11 Men Against 11 - Very light upfront, heck of a midfield though, chances. (5th)
  • Ally Sloppers Cavalry - Interesting first squad, probably too reliant on Championship strikers, definite top half finish. (8th)
  • Choppers Goalfest - In danger of becoming a perennial bottom division dweller, should make the promotion places, although have said that before. (3rd)
  • Dynamo Chigley - Reasonable midfield and defence, light up front. (11th)
  • Fawkes FC - This squad could surprise and make top 6. (6th)
  • FC Barcedoha - Spent a lot of money, just donít see it happening. (15th)
  • FC Mein Bergkampf - If Derby do well, they could be top half. (7th)
  • FC Raymo - Very strong squad, title contenders. (1st)
  • Generation Terrorists - Exciting squad if Liverpool deliver (2nd)
  • Hayleys Comets - Bit light up front, not a squad that looks full of points. (14th)
  • Marine Unathletic - A squad of potential. Potentially rubbish/ potentially good. (10th)
  • Norfolk and Chance - May have over paid on Sane, reasonable squad mid table for sure. (9th)
  • Patchy Arses AFC - Good keeper, one good striker and Dembele does not make a good squad, will struggle. (12th)
  • Rabid Grannies - Cheapskate auction management again, will depend on how well the newly promoted teams do. (16th)
  • The Ampthill Mob - Change of auction bidder, same old story. Eggs firmly in one basket. (13th)
  • Welwyn Winkers Utd - Exciting line up, short of a fit keeper, top six guaranteed. (4th)

21:37 - Pot Transfers Applied - System Notification

The pot transfers for this week have been applied to the database:

18:52 - Auction results loaded - by Paul Holloway

The auction results have been loaded on the website and you can now start planning your pot bids for this coming Thursday. If anyone would like to give me their analysis of the squads after the auction, I'm sure everyone would be interested in their views.

Personally I'm still thinking of ways to spend my £10 that Roy will be giving me at the end of the season when Wolves fail to finish in the top 8! Happy days...

10:14 - Group 3 Templates - by Paul Holloway

Please find attached a spreadsheet (in xls and xlsx formats) for you to use for submitting your Group 3 players for the auction this coming Saturday. The spreadsheets are also available via the website Group3(Teamname).xls or Group3(Teamname).xlsx.

Group 3 lists are used for any players you might want to bid for on Saturday that are not on the OFFICIAL auction list that was sent yesterday. This could be speculation on a potential transfer, a player who is currently unattached but will probably play for a club, any mistakes Eric might have made etcÖ You can put a maximum of 8 players on your Group 3 list. Only teams that list a player in their Group 3 list can bid for that player at the auction and proxy bidders cannot submit or bid on grp 3 players.

Please enter your team name in the space provided in the spreadsheet and include in the filename (e.g. Group3(Scrubs XI).xls) to make it easy to identify who submitted the list. Fill in all the information so we can identify the player you wish to bid for and be careful with your spelling by checking it using the internet. On Saturday before the auction starts you will have a chance to check the list has been transferred correctly and that the player has been classified in the position you want to buy him in. I will try and ensure I highlight any descrepancies at the auction. Only the manager of a team can submit a group 3 list so proxies can not do it for you since it is provided via email so no excuses.

The deadline for Group 3 submissions is Friday @18:00 to enable time for the lists to be consolidated before the auction the next day.

  • Div 1 should submit their spread sheets to Terry (terry.casserley@uk.bp.com)
  • Div 2 should submit their spread sheets to Eric (ericdodman.ed@gmail.com)
  • Div 3 should submit their spread sheets to me (hollowayfamily@btinternet.com)

If you submit more than one list the last list received will be used.

09:58 - Auction Bid List - by Paul Holloway

It is one week to go until the auction next Saturday (28th July) and as usual Eric has been busy over the summer working the player list to ensure our list of DBFFL players is up to date and complete. He has also applied his skill and judgement to create an auction list that is the purpose of this email. I will send an email tomorrow on the Group 3 list process but as usual these will need to be submitted by next Friday @6pm if you want to bid for any players not in Ericís auction player list.

You can download the bid list from the website in (xls) www.dbffl.com/doc/FFLBidList1819.xls or (xlsx) www.dbffl.com/doc/FFLBidList1819.xlsx excel formats.

14:47 - Auction Reminder - by Paul Holloway

The auction is fast approaching, in fact is just over two weeks away, on Saturday 28th July so I thought I should send a reminder to your all and ask for some information as usual.

The auction will take place at Gadebridge Community Centre, Rossgate, Hemel Hempstead, HP1 3LF - this is the same venue as every other year.

The rough timetable for the auctions will be :-

  • Div 3 Start 10:00 -> 12:30
  • Div 2 Start 12:45 -> 15:00
  • Div 1 Start 15:15 -> 17:30

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your auction start time, as this will give you time to settle down and be ready for a prompt start. If you are going to be late for the auction please call me on 07887 721972 as we can't wait long and might have to start without you but at least we will know that you are on your way or not!

Can everyone let me know who will be attending to bid for their team so I have a list of expected attendees. If anyone is still looking for a proxy, let me know now as I might know someone who is willing to do it but if you can organise it amongst yourselves all the better.

As usual after the auctions a the hardcore will be going for some drinks and a curry as a kind of end of season bash. Chris Ratcliffe is kindly organising as usual so contact him for details.

The bid list will be sent out the weekend before the auction (21st/22nd July) along with instructions and a template for Group 3 lists.

Wednesday 11th July 2018

23:30 - New Season - Leavers and Joiners - by Paul Holloway

As usual we have had some people leave and some people join the DBFFL in the close season.

The leavers are:-

  • Angelo's Angels - Sue Angelo - she feels she is too busy to participate this year
  • AC Dubai - Colin Holloway - Cannot attend the auction as he lives in Dubai so moving to the DBFFL2

However these losses are other peoples gains so please welcome to Div 3:-

  • Ally Sloppers Cavalry - Will Wright - a friend of Stephen Day and a real football nut!
  • Generation Terrorists - Steve + Kev Flint - the mighty Flint brothers return

If you are a new participant then you can get your password by taking the login option followed by the Forgot your password? link. Then select your name from the list and an email will be sent to your registered email address with your password.

21:35 - Wilko's Barmy Army Event - by Paul Holloway

Sending on behalf of Roy Mitropoulos

Dear fflers,

It's now been 2 years since our fellow manager Pete Wilkinson passed away. At the time we raised £633 through the generosity of Mad Jim, Chopper, Steve, Eric, Paul, Matt and others who donated their winnings. The hospice did an amazing job looking after Pete during his last days, and I've had it in mind ever since to raise some more money for them. But I don't want to ask people to donate their winnings again. So I've come up with another idea to mark the event and raise some money for the hospice.

The idea I've come up with, (and which Karen supports). is an over 50s 6 a side football tournament, with as many of Pete's friends participating as possible. Entry will be a minimum of £10 per person (max is any amount you'd like to contribute, I intend to put in £100). The tournament will take place in September, giving people a chance to get fitter in preparation.

Pete was the best of us. He would never turn anyone away. He stood for getting people together, welcoming everyone, social gatherings, staying in touch, and staying fit as he got older, Even if you're not a footballer, and as long as youíre not a football assassin, we would like you to take part. It's not about the football, it's about getting Peteís friends together and raising money for the hospice, which relies on charitable donations to keep running. I think it would be a great event in his memory. The event will be called Wilko's Barmy Army. Iíd love to see as many of his friends playing as possible, raising money for a good cause and helping to keep his memory alive.

So here's what I need from you. Let me know :

  1. Do you like the idea?
  2. Are you up for it?
  3. Would you like to take part?
  4. Would you like to be a captain and organise a team - please note captains will be responsible for collecting donations. You can recruit people from as widely as you like within the spirit of the event
  5. Would you like to help me organise the event ? Pete might have turned up at the wrong place with one trainer missing (!), but I want us to make it a proper event. I could do with some volunteers to help organise, particularly anyone who has access to football facilities which we could use for starters
  6. Start getting fitter in preparation. Start doing 10,000 steps, or start that diet. See a doctor and get yourselves 6 a side fit. I donít want any of you keeling over during the event!

Hope you are all up for this. If you are, I will also start putting the word out to Pete's friends, family and old colleagues. I will also set up a facebook page for the event. And I will start roping people in as organisers. If it works really well, we can make it an annual charity event.

If you like the idea, or if you want to help, I can be contacted on roy.mit99@gmail.com or 07785 388 014

All the best,

Roy.
