    I'd like a Player of the Month table which currently TalkSport don't do for all their mini-leagues, although they have one for the Selco league:
    https://predictor.talksport.com/minileagues/monthly.htm?id=400
    Could I ask as many of you guys as possible to email TalkSport and ask for a Player of the Month table to be run out to all mini-leagues from next season.
    Their contact address is on the Players home page - top right .
    With a few more emails than just mine, TalkSport might take some notice.
    And if anybody does contact TalkSport please mention that their mini-league Championship is a crap system where those leagues with the most players always win, and don't give a chance to us smaller leagues. [TalkSport select the four best scores from the entire mini-league while other FF sites (Telegraph for instance) just use the scores of the four players at top of table in that week]
    Cheers lads

    I would've said a fairer system would be to take the average score of all players in the league, as it gives a fairer representation of the strength of the league as a whole, not just the strongest players (whether they be the strongest in a given week, or the strongest over the course of the season).

    Good idea, but the problem with that is there are so many players who register but don't play.
    But it is easy to get rid of players who drop out and prevent them bringing down the league's average.
    And after giving it further consideration, I copied your words and forwarded them to one of my contacts at IKTS.
    I really hope TalkSport take up your suggestion.
    Cheers
    Tom

    I've just checked out the Gameweek and because the television companies now demand a Premiership game on Friday nights, the final IKTS table cannot be determined until then - bl**dy annoying.
    In week 1 there are 11 games to forecast.

    How poor is that, having to wait until the Friday for the week 1 table. I hope that's not going to be the norm where Friday games are involved. They should be treated as the 1st game of the gameweek, not the last.

    I see there is a different number of gameweeks this season too, 36 this season compared to last seasons 33. This is probably better for the comp' imo though.

    I'll start a new 2015/16 FREE Malvern League thread up soon.
