Hi guys.

I play fantasy football regularly on a site called Picklive.

It has been known as ‘fantasy football on crack’ with their ‘live games’ where you pick five players from the teamsheets in a particular televised matchand those players accumulate points in real time based on what they do during the 90 minute game.

OPTA, the statistics company are involved in tracking that activity and logging it for the purpose of converting it to points which can win prizes.

Picklive cover premier league, champions league, europa league and international tournaments like this one.

There are great cash prizes up for grabs using stakes ranging from FREE [no cash prize there] to upwards of a few grand…

But as it’s kind of an ‘off-season’ at the moment and there’s an international event on, Picklive are just holding the normal kind this time. The £2,500 prize pool is one where you pay £15 to make a team of 11 players across ALL TEAMS. But here’s the difference – NO TRANSFER BUDGET LIMIT! 

You heard it right, there isn’t a set budget like the others. So if you want Van Persie, Ronaldo, Nani, Terry and Klose in the same team, you can have them! The only restraint is that you can’t have more than three players from the same country.

PLUS – The prize-pools are only a MINIMUM. If the number of entrants exceeds a certain number in any cash tournament, the prize-pool increases. Prizes are paid out to the top-three places.

In a £1000 Fantasy Football tournament for the final day of the season (£10 Stake).

1st Place – £600
2nd Place – £200
3rd Place – £100

(Picklive took a rake of 10% from the total prize pool)
If you can’t spare £15, which many of u can’t, you can play in a £10 tournament, join mine (£5) , or even create your own and invite others! Choose the stake and the phase in the tournament, pick your team, invite a few mates/office colleagues and away you go.

You can even have a tournament ‘for fun’ and just compete for bragging rights. No cash required.

However, if you sign up using my link – and deposit some cash into your Picklive account, you can get an extra £3 on top. Sounds meager but that is enough for one cash entry where the prize pool is a minimum of £30.

Go to the homepage and scroll down to see the many free, low stake and stupid stakes tournaments available.

Tournaments I’ve set up:

Euro2012 Phase  – Group D
Stake – £5
Prize Pool – £10 (increases if more people join)

Stake – £5
Prize Pool – £10 (increases if more people join)

Email and ask anything you like about how it fully works and
what’s what 🙂

Have fun if you join up!

Good luck!

Harry Redknapp has confirmed, for the thousandth time that Luka Modric is not for sale. As both the player and Chelsea don’t seem to understand this I have taken the liberty of translating that message into various languages, maybe they’ll understand one:

Modrić nije na prodaju

modric не для продажи

01001101 01101111 01100100 01110010 01101001 01100011 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01001110 01101111 01110100 00100000 01100110 01101111 01110010 00100000 01010011 01100001 01101100 01100101

— — -.. .-. .. -.-. / .. … / -. — – / ..-. — .-. / … .- .-.. .

The message is in Croatian, Russian, Binary and Morse code. Hopefully that will help get the message across. As Harry has rightly stated “We know he wants to leave and whether he writes it down on a piece of paper doesn’t really make any difference to our stance. He’s a great player and we don’t want to lose him”.

Should we decide to do any business with regards to selling Modric, it should by no means be with any of our competitors. Our competitors of course are anyone in the EPL who could afford him. If he must go, sell him to Barcelona or Real Madrid and try to get some kind of player exchange. Personally though I believe we could do well in the league again this year and if we keep Modric, he may well decide that actually, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Friday will give all us Spurs fans something to look forward too, the draw for the Last 16 of the Champions League as it enters its knockout stages.

For this first time this season Tottenham have played Champions League football since it changed format from the old European Cup and boy haven’t we done well in our first season. We topped the group and we topped it in style, we probably had the hardest task out of all the English teams but we came through.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham all won their respective groups but neighbours Arsenal scraped 2nd place in their group which could mean they could face the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid in the next round.

On Friday around midday we will know which one of these teams Tottenham will face:

1) Lyon (Runners up group B)

2) Valencia (Runners up group c)

3) FC Copenhagen ( Runners up group D)

4) Roma (Runners up Group E)

5) Marseille (Runners up Group F)

6) AC Milan (Runners upGroup G)

So from that list who would you fancy and who would you rather avoid, does it even matter, are we afraid of anyone? And who would you like us to face?

For those of you who will be at work but have access to a computer, sign up or log into the forum and I will try to provide a stream of the draw.

We were linked with Ashley Young all summer long but with the Departure of Martin O’Neill from Aston Villa it left any hopes of a deal shattered. Tottenham were hoping to do a swap deal for the England winger but just a few days before the start of the new campaign manager Martin O’Neill stepped down.

Spurs are now tipped to go back in January with an offer of a cash plus player deal, likely involving Robbie Keane and Jermaine Jenas. Daniel Levy and Harry Redknapp have both admired Ashley Young for a long time and if a deal could be completed would inject even more pace to the Spurs midfield. With Lennon on the right and Young on the left, that is enough to frighten any team in the league.

Levy is willing to match the players wages of around £65,000 a week if he can offload Keane and Jenas. Young was said to be interested because of Champions League football but come January hopefully we are still in it, however I think Tottenham are the more likely club to finish top 4 again this season.

So come January after a relatively quiet summer for Tottenham untill the final day maybe we will get down to business early, if there are any problem areas in the team then it will be highlighted and hopefully ammended in the January transfer window. A move for Ashley Young only adds fuel to the speculation that Harry would like to have Bale as his permanent left back.

It’s a bit early on to say there is any truth in this but it wouldn’t surprise me if we did go back for Young, a lot can change between now and January.

  • Clubs must name squads containing at least eight homegrown players and no more than 25 players in total.
  • A homegrown player is defined as one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Welsh Football Association for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).
  • In keeping with UEFA guidelines, an Under-21 player is defined as one who is under the age of 21 on January 1 in the year in which the season commences. For the 2010-11 campaign, Under-21 players will have been born on or after January 1, 1989.
  • Any players under 21 can be added to the squad, regardless of nationality.
  • – Rules apply only to Premier League matches, not European, FA Cup or League Cup action.
  • .

    So no Woody in the Spurs 25, that doesn’t mean he is finished, the squad can be altered in January and he isn’t going to be fit by before then so this makes perfect sense. If his operation goes well and he makes a recovery then expect him to be included in the next squad.

    Tottenham will face European champions Inter Milan and Werder Bremen….

    The draw has just been made and Tottenham have been welcomed to the Champions League with a draw that see’s us in a group with the reigning champions Inter Milan of Italy, Werder Bremen of Germany and FC Twente of Holland.

    Manchester United face Valencia and Rangers while Arsenal look to have the easiest draw against Shakhtar and Braga. Chelsea should also make easy work of the group stages with a draw that see’s them in a group with Marseille and Spartak Moscow.


    September 14 – Werder Bremen v Spurs
    September 29 – Spurs v FC Twente
    October 20 – Inter Milan v Spurs
    November 2 – Spurs v Inter Milan
    November 24 – Spurs v Werder Bremen
    December 7 – FC Twente v Spurs

    It is fair to say we could have had an easier draw but this is what it’s all about now, to be the best you have to beat the best and this is what we have been relishing. There is no more hiding the big boys are coming to the Lane.

    All I can say is whatever the outcome of the group stage just go out there and do us proud boys and you will will be icons in our eyes. Lucky Arsenal have an easy group yet again and once again Manchester United are in a group with a Scottish team.

    I dream that we can emulate what Leeds done and go on an unexpected run but whatever the outcome I know we just won’t want it to end. No more week nights of planning to watch Eastenders or Corrie, we can plan to watch our Tottenham in the Champions League.

    All eyes on group A, between now and Christmas it’s going to be one hell of a roller coaster ride.

    Aug 202010

    I will probably get a lot of stick for this blog but here it goes anyway….

    None of this please William

    We seem to be getting linked to far too many ex Arsenal players than I would like, it looks like we will be getting William Gallas on a freebie pending a medical and to a lot of clubs this would be a bargain but to me it’s not. He is a decent defender but his attitude isn’t the best. I don’t want a player who threatens to score own goals agaisnt his own team like he done at Chelsea if he doesn’t get his own way. Its bad enough he is an ex Gooner but I don’t even think the Arsenal fans ever embraced Gallas so how the hell are the Spurs fans supposed to. Gallas has this attitude that it’s all about him, while Bassong accepts King, Dawson and Woody are all better defenders than him and quietly waits for his chance to play and when he does he gives 100% I don’t think Gallas will do this, I think he is under the impression he will be the main man at the back for us and when he discovers he isn’t he will sulk. I don’t want to see this guy put above Bassong.

    We are also being linked with Hleb in a £5 million move but although he has a much better attitude that Gallas my only real concern with this one except for him also being Arsenal is that I personally think he isn’t very good. Hleb will work hard and score the odd goal but seriously who can he push out of our team?

    So we have now been linked with Adebayor, Flamini, Gallas and Hleb in recent weeks, surely we can aim higher than Arsenal rejects that were either sold for being trouble makers or were not simply good enough. I don’t want to visit the Emirates to the chants of “are you Arsenal in disguise” or “you only buy arsenal rejects”. Surely there are other players out there we can get linked to other than Gooner rejects.

    News just in, Edgar Davids has joined Crystal Place, Edgar served us proud and I wish him all the best at his new club

    Aug 082010

    First they wanted Harry and now they want Crouchy, Harry saw sense so hopefully Crouch will do the same. it’s great to be able to say this but why would Crouch want to go to another team when he could stay at a top 4 club. Reports all weekend have been coming out that Hodgson is desperate to sign Crouch but is he going to get more game time at Liverpool than he would at Tottenham? I would think not, so why on earth would he want to move.

    Fingers crossed we can beat Young Boys and then we have Champions League football at the lane so the squad is going to be rotated I would imagine, Crouch will probably feature more for Spurs this season than he would for the Scousers. They have Torres and now they have Joe Cole who might play just behind, so where would they fit Crouch in?

    Some people might not see it as a big deal if he leaves for Anfield, and I probably wouldn’t see him as irreplaceable however he adds a different dimension to the squad, now nobody likes seeing us play long ball Wimbledon style but sometimes needs must and you have to take the route one direct style and Crouchy is the ideal target man in them situations. It has worked for Chelsea for years with Drogba as their target man and you could argue it has worked for us due to the fact we have finished top 4 for the first time in the Premiership.

    Peter Crouch has helped in turning the fortunes around of the club, would he want to see it through or would he be tempted to go back to Anfield, personally I can’t see him going, I can’t see any logic as to why he would want to go to a club who can’t offer him what we can in Champions League football. It’s a classic case of Liverpool thinking they are bigger than they are and can attract players from our club, I think even if Liverpool come in for Robbie Keane that suddenly they wouldn’t be his boyhood club anymore. Liverpool are not as good as they were and keep living off past reputation and I can’t see any of our players who know they will be in the first team next season would abandon us now in favour of a move to Liverpool.

    So if there are any truth in these rumours I don’t even think Harry would let him go and I really can’t see Crouch sulking like Berbatov did just to get a move to Liverpool, no doubt they are a big club but you are only as good as your final league position and that was 3 places behind us. Crouchy will know he will be spending a lot of time on the bench next season but so will a lot of the squad, that is the price you pay if you want Champions League football, United,Chelsea and Arsenal will be doing it and so will we otherwise league form will suffer.

    Aug 082010

    So with less than a week to go before we open up the Premiership season with a mouth watering fixture agaisnt Manchester City what can we class as a successful season again? I would personall be more than happy with another top 4 finish and I might be a little greedy here but I would love to get through the group stages of the Champions League, I don’t see any reason why we can’t have a good run in that, Leeds have done it before so why not us?

    The Premiership Is Back

    When it comes to the League Cup you can pretty much bet that our squad will be weakend during the early rounds, if we get to semi final stage then I would expect Harry to take it a little more seriously, I don’t see this issue happening in the FA Cup so there is no reason we shouldn’t be aiming to win it.

    People have come out and said that we could be title contenders, now as a Spurs fan and a realist I think this might be a little optimistic, so not just yet. I think our aim should be another top 4 finish but I think even that will be harder than last season. We are a very good side but I still think we lack something, we still have that inconsistent Tottenham way where we will beat a top team one week and lose to a bottom of the league team the following week.

    If we are to maintain that top 4 push again we will need to ensure that White Hart Lane remains a fortress and we should be aiming to win 8 or 9 away matches. Last season’s away record was a big improvement on recent years which is why we finished 4th. Harry is the right man for the job, he won’t be taking any crap off of the players and will ensure they remain professional and 100% focused. I am sure we will have a couple of blips along the way but I am also confident we will pull off a few great results.

    In about 10 days time we will taken on Young Boys for a place in the Champions League proper, can you imagine the feeling when you sit down on a Wednesday night and the Champions League comes on the television, then it sinks in that it is actually Tottenham you will be watching. This is something we have all dreamed of for years and this season it could and should become a reality.

    So in conclusion for me, my aim is another top 4 finish and a good run in the Champions League, Would also like to have a day out at Wembley in one of the cups. So please use the comments box below and share your views, I would be interested to know your targets and what you would call a successful season again for the 2010/11 campaign in all competitions.

    Last season was one hell of a rollercoaster ride but that is what makes being a Tottenham fan the best fans in the world, if Carlsberg done fans it would definately be Tottenham. I don’t know about most of you but for myself I enjoy supporting a team that doesn’t win every week and isn’t expected to win a trophy each season, to me this makes it all the more special when we do. Other teams might mock our enthusiasm but I put that down to fear or jelousy. I believe we are on the way up and its about time too.

    Boom Boom Boom Let Me Hear You Say Bale....

    Last season gave us so many high points and a few downers too, we beat some of the big teams and we let Wolves do the double over us. We beat Wigan 9-1 but we let the scum give us a bit of a footballing lesson at their gaff. Come the final game of the season I defy any other football fan to say that Spurs didn’t deserve to finish in 4th place having been in the top 4 for most of the season.

    We had what was to be a season defining couple of weeks in April. This run of games started with the FA Cup semi final agaisnt relgated Portsmouth, on paper it was to be a stroll in the park but we all know that the FA Cup was Pompey’s last hope of salvaging something from the season and we all know that they wanted it more than us which is why they won and we didn’t, it’s as simple as that. Oh plus the Wembley pitch was a disgrace!!

    Out of the FA Cup and disheartened and slipped down to 5th place in league after City jumped us due to our previous league defeat agaisnt Sunderland, was there a way back or was a Europa cup place looking like a good achievement? Well the Spurs players had other ideas and what was about to happen in the coming fixtures was beyond our wildest dreams. With Arsenal,Chelsea, United and City all to play in the space of a month did finishing 4th ever look likely? Now I am the ever optomistic Spurs fan but even I thought this run of games would prove too much for us, but take a look at the video below to see the moment that I and thousands of other Spurs fans thought that for once things might just be different….

    So we sent Arsenal and Chelsea packing and if after both of them amazing results if there was any justice and you believed in fate you just knew that we had to finish 4th. Who would have thought we would have come through the Arsenal,Chelsea and United run of games back in 4th? I will review more parts in the coming weeks before the start of the season to gear us up for another crack at it, the City game will be coming up so pop back for my review on that. For now however I leave you with our season defining moment, the moment we dared to dream, the moment Tottenham fans believed once again.

    A lot of reports are surfacing today about the possiblity of Joe Cole coming to the lane on a Bosman. Me personally I thought for a few weeks now that Cole will be a Tottenham Player next season, the main reason for my logic is the fact that Harry knows Cole well, afterall he was the man to give Cole his professional debut. When you also take into account the fact that Harry would never let this type of bargain pass him by and his ability to talk players into joining clubs, weighing up the evidence can you really see Joe Cole at another club next season?

    It’s well know that Cole is a London Lad but could you really see him in an Arsenal shirt and would Wenger be able to talk him into a move to  the Gunners over Redknapp talking him into a move to join us?. I truely believe Cole would love to work with Harry again and I can see that after the world cup an announcement will be made that Cole is a Spurs player. We have 5 players in the England World Cup squad and surely they will all be on Coles back to come to the lane.

    When asked about the possibility of Joe joining Tottenham, Harry was quoted as saying a deal is “not impossible”, which is a complete contrast of what he said only a few days ago when he said he thought Joe had already agreed to join another team. Harry is very shrude and knows exaclty what he is doing, and if there is anything I have learned in the past is that he loves a freebie. The question is Cole will demand a big signing on fee and big wagesso will we pay it? Well the wages he is on at Chelsea is around 100k a week, this is a figure we could pay because there is no transfer fee. The only trouble is would Cole getting 100k a week upset the other players? Does Cole deserve to earn more than Luka Modric and Ledley King? There is no doubt Cole will chip in with his share of goals and is a great player with experience of the Champions League. To me it would be the signing of the season if we could convince him to lower his wage demands to around 60k a week plus bonuses.

    So let’s all enjoy the World Cup that starts this friday and watch a future Tottenham player do the business for England, cos mark my words, if Joe Cole isn’t in a Tottenham shirt on the opening day of the season I will be very suprised. Harry isn’t stupid he knows we need a squad of quality players to handle the Premiership and Champions League so when there is a “triffic” freebie on offer which doesn’t come along too often expect Harry to fight tooth and nail to get his man.
