PA i will sort it out i will be a bit difficult i will have to put the scoring in one thread and then get it locked and post links to a list of all the players and team sites as there is 20 teams in the premier league with over a 500 players...We have plenty of time so i will get started on it.!

Scoring usually works on goals,goal assists,ratings,man of the match,hat tricks (3 goals in a match) scores more,No goals scored against you..

Negative....points...Yellow and red cards,goals against you...

Yeah, Pele has been retired for years. I remember when we were very young and would play soccer in the backyard, we would all fight over who was going to be Pele that day. :tum:

It will be a little easier to follow than baseball if its only once or twice a week. I do love there being baseball games every night though, makes it interesting.

Pele has got to be the Greatest footballer their has ever been...

I like the thing aswell with baseball where their is a game every night it does make it more interesting,but with so many fantasy leagues on the go Baseball,Soccer and American Football when the other 2 start maybe one only 1/2 times a week won't be bad...

Mate if you want to get fit.. then this is the game for you.

Usually the team is 8 a side.. You are surrounded by a net on all 4 sides...

Hitting the ball is a single..Hitting onto the ON (or side you are batting to) side into the net gives you the run plus a bonus run. Hitting onto the opposite net gives you 2 runs plus the one you run.

Hitting the back net on the full gives you a six....It's an extremely fast paced game.

BUT

If you get out..whether it's caught, bowled or stumped you don't leave the crease.. you just lose 5 runs.. I have been in a game where the opposing team finished their innings in the negative..It's a common occurance.

You have 5 overs to prove your worth to the team with the bat.. Then you field to try and defend your total.

Awesome fun and a great way to get fit.

Chris
