Ok

Please see the document below (probably best viewed on a computer rather than a phone) to see how it's going to work this year. You should be able to view all tabs but hopefully not edit them.

This has the official player list, details of the scoring system and once the tournament is up and running will display scores, most popular selections etc. I will try and get a more detailed scoreboard on there later so you can see who your rivals have picked.

You can now start submitting entries by posting them on here. I would really appreciate it if you could list your 11 players for reference, and then write out on one line all the corresponding IDs from column A on the player list with a space between each one. This will allow me to get the data in with minimal fuss

example:

Jordan Pickford Dele Alli Pepe Luis Suarez Ever Banega Paul Pogba Lionel Messi Mario Mandzukic Luka Modric Tim Cahill Mesut Ozil

Hi Matthew, great to hear from you. First of all, I'm delighted to hear that Twatball is back you have recovered from your recent illness.

Are you expecting to be able to host Twatball, as you did for previous tournaments? I appreciate that you will have had limited time and opportunity to get everything up and running to be ready for next week.

Hi

It wasn't me who was ill - I am running it this year as cover, though not through the usual website, but using the spreadsheet linked above.

You are a god amongst men.

Thanks for doing this Matt. And if you need a hand, fogger seems to have a lot of free time, so ask him.

Egypt's #1 choice goalkeeper is 45. There are 3 other players born in the 1970s - Tim Cahill, Rafael Marquez and a Russian, Ignashevich. The youngest player is Arzani, from Australia, who's 19. Alexander-Arnold, Mbappe, Hakimi, Uzoho, Rodriguez and Wague are also teenagers.
