OK, Four years have passed since I last did this, and now I'm back to do it again - yes its the Euro 2008 version of Phantasy Phootball. Can Egon successfully defend his title, or can one of the many pretenders claim his crown. In just a few short weeks, we'll know the answer.

If you have stumbled across this page by accident...
...A quick explanation might be in order. The teams below were bid for via closed auction - ie. the managers had no idea what price the League or other managers were valuing their chosen players at. Hence, this is a more accurate reflection of real life than your average Fantasy Football league.
All the managers should know the rules by now, but just in case you've forgot, here's a quick reminder. All teams will be made up of a goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders and two strikers. You have £50m to get these players and you can't have more than three players from any one country.
Any manager may bid for players at any time2 by sending an email naming the requisite player and your bidding price. The League, however, has the right to place a fixed minimum (reserve) price on any player. Once I've received your bid, I'll post the player but not the price to the forums below and give the rest of the league a short period (probably 24-36 hours) to bid.
You may offer players from the appropriate position instead of or in addition to whatever cash you may still hold, but the league will fix the price, depending on that player's original purchase price, and how many points they have scored.
All the players still eligible are listed on the pages linked below. If you're after a new player not on the list, let me know and I'll add them:
Players are free to make transfers among themselves at any time, fixing their own prices and so on. Every transfer must be confirmed by an email to the League Chair, otherwise I can't convert the page.
My email address is PPBids at googlemail dot com. For the sake of simplicity, please put Phantasy Phootball, or something similar, in the subject line.
Important: Make sure you subscribe to this page. Once the season is underway, all transfer announcements will also appear in threads on this page.
NB: The 'Total Points' column does not necessarily concur with the total points gained by that player in this competition. Instead it is the total points for that position which may have been filled by any number of players, according to the manager's penchant for transfers.
