    Your Ten To Follow Teams 2018 / 2019

    We have 25 entrants this year, each with three teams, continuing the downward trend in numbers for the competition from a peak of 57 players in 2014/2015 (albeit with only one team each). As you may remember both main sponsor swedish chef and myself as administrator have declared our intention to step down from our roles at the end of the competition so if the competition is to continue in future years volunteers will be needed.

    As regards this year the most popular horse is Footpad which features in 59 teams, and there is good support for Samcro 53 teams, Might Bite 48 teams, Altior 45 teams, and Buveur D'Air 37 teams.

    Given the number of last minute amendments this year plus the fact I have downloaded a free spreadsheet more like the older version of Microsoft Office I am used to and have had to transfer a lot of the original spreadsheet into it to make it work , I am expecting to find a few errors so please can you check carefully the teams below which hopefully represent your final versions, and let me know ASAP if anything is wrong as once I start adding points into it I will be reluctant to go back and change teams again. I will sticky this thread for now until the first leaderboard on Sunday November 18th when I will unsticky it and I will post a link to it with each update of the leaderboard through the season.

    Good luck everyone.

    I changed my Team B dark horse to Mister Blue Sky but the rest of mine are fine. Thanks for burning the midnight oil.

    Ah yes, I had changed it "everywhere else" and where it matters, so all good.

    Quickest way probably to click on your name, then "view forum posts", you'll find your posts there.
