    Goalkeepers: +4 for clean sheet, -2 for goals against

    Defenders: +2 for clean sheet, -1 for goals against, +5 for goal scored

    Midfielders: +4 points for goals scored

    Strikers: +3 points for goals scored

    Managers: +5 points for a win, +2 points for a draw, -2 points for a loss

    Low scores all round! I'm used to the sportal system but I'll give it a shot.
    That looks pretty lame, can't believe there isn't one decent World Cup fantasy competition out there, so someone hurry up and find it.

    anyway, for the http://worldcup.fantasy-manager.co.uk/ comp, i've created a league

    League: Cricket Web Forum League

    Nobby Stiless Dentures is in.

    NB: I did have an apostrophe in Stiles's but the bloody site took it off. Hey-ho.

    Looking at the three teams entered so far we all have Birchall from T&T! My team has a distinct "players what have played in Britain & I've actually heard of" bias....

    Think birchell is the token 'He's bound to get points for playing at least' pick, and he doesnt lose out for Trinidads shocking defence

    Don't mention the war is in.

    Isaksson

    Carvalho Gallas Young-Pyo

    Chedli Schweinsteiger Karimi Ballack Radomski

    A.Delgado Klose

    Manager: Advocaat

    I had a bit of trouble with the last two mids. Karimi will definitely play for Iran, I'll have to do a bit more research to make sure the other two do as well.

    6) Brentford (jack firtth) 20
    7) Mind the Metatarsal! (Jamee Gray) 19
    8) McBride & Co (Alex Crampton) 17
    8) The Vic Two Blues (Jack McNamara) 17
    10) AA at the WC (Marc Robbins) 14
    11) Cruyff's Rangers (Donald Chapman) 13
