PFYC England is **LIVE** for 2012-13!
The not-so-'new' version of PFYC went live Tues August 14, 2012, for matches finishing this Saturday August 18.
2010/11: Stoke City
2011/12: Newcastle United
A wide open premiership again this year. The past 3 winners are all competing, and the big names on grass all have potentially strong teams. Highest scorers last year, by over 500 million points, were QPR - so another team to watch our for.
Should be fun to watch! Any one of ten teams could win.
At the bottom, Blackburn and Bolton have not yet made it out of the bottom four - however with both those teams now relegated to the Championship, it may be between Norwich and Sunderland to avoid the wooden spoon. However newly-promoted Reading, bottom in last year's PFYC Championship, may well also struggle.
2009/10: Crystal Palace
2010/11: Crystal Palace
2011/12: Crystal Palace
No prizes for guessing the favourites in the Championship - Crystal Palace so far unbeaten in 3 seasons. Some tough competition last year however emerged in both Birmingham and Brighton, so the potential for some good battles this year, now that the cheat possibilities have been fixed.
Palace scored a "clean" 502 million against Brum towards the end of last season, a PFYC record score across all 4 divisions. So tipping them off the top will be a tough task.
Millwall must start favourites for the wooden spoon - but for a strong player or two that apparently adopted them last season, they could easily have finished with zero points!
2009/10: Colchester United
Probably the most unpredictable division is League One - consistently the lowest-scoring of the four divisions, with completely different teams leading the way each year so far. Bournemouth dominated last year, but were challenged strongly in the second half of the season by Leyton Orient and Huddersfield, among others. With Huddersfield now in the Championship, promoted teams from League 2 may be able to challenge, such as Shrewsbury, Crawley and Swindon. Should be an interesting contest.
At the bottom, MK Dons and their supporters (dare I say - franchisees?!) will once again start favourites for the wooden spoon.
Barnet are as yet unbeaten in League Two, although of course with the annual narrow escapes of their team on the grass, it is arguably surprising they are still even IN PFYC League Two!
Gillingham provided the toughest competetion last year, finishing a strong second, with Morecambe and Bristol Rovers well able to put up strong showings as well. In fact, the top half of the League Two table is typically very competitive every year. New boys Fleetwood Town and York City will likely have their work cut out for them.
Dagenham ignominiously finished bottom in L2 last year, we will see if they can avoid the 92nd spot in 2012/13.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL PLAYERS AND ALL TEAMS!
