Chelsea Transfer Target
Jun 26, 2010, 8:24 PM
Team(s): FCUM, MUFC, Hammarby, St Pauli, Hawthorn (AFL)
Entries for the 2010-11 competition are now open.
The format is exactly the same as last year.
The only change I am making is that all step 5 leagues will be treated as if they have 2 relegation places, including those for which relegation never happens (ie Kent, Essex).
Please make sure all your teams are competing in the competitions you select them for - if I notice, I'll tell you and others may do too, but it's your responsibility to check. If entering early, league line-ups are still subject to change at the moment. If you change your team before the start, your start date/time will be adjusted accordingly.
All entries are to be made via this thread before the first game in any of these divisions - currently Saturday August 7th at 3pm. If you look at last season's thread, you will see some examples of the entries and the updates throughout the season.
You do not need to select a team for every competition if you don't want to. This allows anyone who want to only select for Northern/Southern/Isthmian areas to do so. If you check last year's formulas, you'll see which leagues I count as North/South/isthimian - for instance MFA is in the North comp - that's my choice
VP is the current champion
The rules / guidance:
Entrants nominate 1 team per league from steps 1-5 + winners of FAT & FAV + an FA Cup team.
The same team can be nominated twice (eg League & FA Cup, Trophy or Vase).
1st – 10pts, 2nd – 7pts, 3rd – 6pts, 4th – 5pts, 5th – 4pts, 6th – 3pts, 7th – 2pts, 8th – 1pt.
Winners of play-off = +1pt
An exclusion from the playoffs / promotion due to ground issues etc does not change the points for 1st-8th.
Team in relegation spot = -5pts
If a club's record is expunged before season end due to liquidation, they will be deemed to be in a relegation spot. Otherwise, they get the position where they finished after any points deductions are applied. Demotions due to post-season liquidation, ground grading etc. will not be considered in determining the relegation points. Re the step 5 leagues, regardless of actual relegation, the bottom 2 spots are relegation spots as far as this competition is concerned.
Scoring (FA Vase, Trophy):
Win – 10pts, Final – 7pts, Semi – 4pts, QF – 1pt
Scoring (FA Cup):
For each win (nothing for walkover, byes, or expulsions) - 1 point
Bonus points - 1st round proper - 1pt; 2nd round proper - 3pts; 3rd round proper - 5 pts; 4th round proper (or further) - 7 points
You may pick any non-league side, including one starting in earlier rounds. Only win points can be obtained during qualifying rounds though.
Teams only get the bonus for the furthest round they reach. Bonuses still apply even if your team has had a bye to get there.
If your team is disqualified, you will not receive 'win' points for that round, even if your team won the tie. Bonus and earlier points are unaffected.
In the event of a tie, teams will be placed in the order in which entries were received / last edited, earliest first.
Interim positions will be based on current positions.
Vase scoring will count towards step 5 points; FA Cup (even if selecting a step 5 side) and FA Trophy count towards step 1-4 points.
