It seems like only 3 months ago we were wrapping up the 2016/17 season & now the 2017/18 season is upon us! Behold the Game Of Goths. The reigning champions, the Eleven Imaginary Boys have got the old band back together, albeit with a couple of new team names & we welcome some new faces from the Industrial Groove Machine & the Blood Brothers & Sisters (who considered a slightly controversial name change to The Sisterhood ) In addition Mav787 has transferred to the BB&S while emilystrange takes charge og the IGM once again. The full team lists are as follows…
There is a new game on the site (the draft) that looks a bit fiddly, so we decided to keep it to just the classic & H2H as usual. But if anyone is also playing the draft game on the side, do let us know what the heck it’s all about .
With a very busy transfer window, it’s been a bit trickier picking squads, as prices have all gone up (except for Pogba). The Premier League also welcomes 3 noobs in Brighton, Huddersfield & Newcastle, all of whom (with the possible exception of Huddersfield) have a very tough opening day gig. But one gubbing does not a season make (I think that’s the saying).
The shed has undergone extensive improvements over the closed season including onsite parking & state-of-the-art security. But these measures have meant we’ve had to put the cost of the pies up by 7pence.
Anyway, enough rambling from me. The Stadium Of Faith is open for the first game of the season & we wish everyone a warm welcome to you all new & extra shiny GW1 thread.
Oh, & don't forget the first match is a Friday evening affair

Evening! Ms Strange here. Well, not there. I'm in Kyoto and the time difference is a bit big. Am glad to be back in the Shed, but after being spoiled with Japanese toilets I'm being pickier about my facilities. The Bat Cave will be upgraded shortly! Hope everyone in IGM wins... GothSpeed you all, Black Emperors!
