Join My Fantasy Football League

Each year, I run a Fantasy Football League. Last year more than 700 people took part. Today I am launching next season's league and inviting you to take part and submit a team.

There's a prize of £100 worth of books and DVDs for the winner.To enter a team (there's no charge!) click HERE. When you've registered your details, follow the instructions to select your team.

When you've done that you need to join the Iain Dale League by typing this code 433347-90306 into the relevant box. You need to register before the season starts on 16 August.

I've chosen the following players in my team - spot the theme...Green (West Ham), Johnson (Portsmouth), Terry (Chelsea), Konchesky (Fulham), Ferdinand (Man U), Noble (West Ham), Lampard (Chelsea), J. Cole (Chelsea), Benayoun (Liverpool), Tevez (Man U), Ashton (West Ham).

UPDATE: More than 400 teams have entered so far!

When did John Terry ever play for West Ham?

Serious question, how will young Mark Noble get on this season? Looks a promising player and gets forward a bit, but will he be a good points generator?

He was with West Ham as a schoolboy.

Iain:

Shouldn't you be in the Daily Telegraph's competition instead? They might expect you, as a columnist, to back it, as it is such a revenue generator for them now.

But too early to sort this out yet, isn't it? Better to wait a while with all the transfer talk buzzing around about our ears.

No room for Jermain Defoe or Michael Carrick?

Football, a wonderful game but played by over-paid, under-educated chavs...in this country anyway.

I liked your theme and tried for an Ex Liverpool XI but didn't feel a midfield of Hamman, Guthrie, Barmby and Diao would achieve much.
