I can't ask for a much better birthday present than the start of the new season today ! It really made my day and hopefully will have a big score this week as well.

I hope everyone is playing the Fantrax game as it is the closest version to the Yahoo one, I know most of people are bit sad that the Yahoo game has stopped but we have to move on and I believe that this game will be similar and maybe better in the future.

Just a reminder for everyone that in the Fantrax game you are only allowed to choose 11 players so please be careful about that otherwise your team will not score any points.

Here is a detailed information for everyone who wants to watch the opening match of the season, We provided you with the kick off times and the Channels that will show the game.
