They've timed it from the date of the contact with the Forest owner, which was almost two weeks ago, so are expected to resume training on Friday, it seems.

Only two players and it's purely precautionary to prevent Scotsmen becoming hysterical.

Hey all,

Quick update from my side on what will happen to the prize money if the Premier League season fails to complete/FPL cancel this season.

1. All Classic League and H2H entry fees will be refunded.
2. All completed cup competitions will be paid out as per payouts (I will contact winners shortly to arrange payment)
3. Prize money for incomplete cup comps will be chopped between the remaining participants
4. Prize money for LMS will be chopped between the remaining participants
5. Draft leagues TBD - there are a couple of teams who mathematically can't finish in the top two, but chopping up their £20 six or seven ways seems a little petty.

Edit: If leagues are cancelled, you'd also have the option to roll the entry fees to next season as, if there's FPL, I'll be running the same leagues next season and rolling would save me about 40 hours of admin.

Hi there.

With the great news that the season is resuming, will there be an update on here as to where we stand with the various Blonde FPL comps?

I will admit I've lost track of it all.

Thanks!

FPL is back, full details here - https://www.premierleague.com/news/1678559

The first deadline is Wed 17 Jun 17:00 but you have unlimited transfers until that point to reshape your team.

This is what it means for the Blonde Poker Leagues, if you have any questions then let me know.

Free League, £10 Classic, £25 Classic, £50 Classic, £100 Classic
Continue as normal

Last Man Standing
Continue as normal.
I have taken the decision not to eliminate anyone for GW29. I haven’t even looked at the table to see who this benefits.

Cups League:
Continues as normal.
The first leg of the Last 16 ties were played in GW29 and the second leg will be in GW30+. I will update the scores in the coming days.

£10 H2H, £25 H2H
On the official site, these leagues have now played to their conclusion. All fixtures between GW30 and GW35 were played out as 0-0 draws and then the KO rounds took place GW36-38.

I am going to recreate the fixtures for GW30+ to GW35+ and keep track of these results. I will then add these points to the existing league table to determine the regular season prize winners and the top eight who qualify for the playoffs.
The playoffs will be seeded (1vs8, 2vs7 etc) and take place GW36+ to GW38+. Similar to what I do for the cups league, I will post the fixtures, results, and current league standings in this thread.

Draft League 1 and Draft League 2
As with the H2H leagues these have no played to their conclusion, with GW30-38 being a series of 0-0 draws.

I am going to set up two new draft leagues.
Blonde Draft League 1+
Blonde Draft League 2+

The draft date will be Monday 15th June, but you don’t need to attend.
I will reach out to all members with the code and instructions, but essentially everyone will create a 15 player watchlist that mirrors their squad exactly as it was at the end of GW38.
These new leagues will then be drafted with the exact same lineups as we had at the end of GW38 and we can proceed in the new leagues.
As with the regular H2H leagues, I will then recreate the same matchups as we were meant to have in GW30-38, I will keep track of results and add these to the existing table to determine the winners. We will essentially ignore the fixtures and league table from these new leagues. I may even set it up as a classic league scoring format to avoid confusion.

There were a couple of inactive teams, so if someone fails to sign up in good time before the draft, using a different email address I will sign up as them, create the watchlist for their team as it was at the end of GW38 and their team will get drafted over. It will then run as a ghost team to fulfill the fixtures.

do you not think the site will turn back the clocks before the first game?

Not sure what you mean by that, but no.

They've given us the update. They can't reverse any of the H2H fixtures, transfers made etc and set the game back to how it was at the end of GW29.

They should've just paused the game at that point, but they obviously didn't have the capability to do that and just had to let it run.
