'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vital Pompey Euro 2008 Fantasy Football

With my loyalty to Vital Football - after all you do not bite the hand that feeds you so to speak - originally I was not keen on 'promoting' another fantasy football game, as of course Vital Football has its own.

However with no home nations interest it was decided against doing one and agreed that by using the official Euro 2008 fantasy football game this would be ok, so I decided I could not resist and gave into temptation and registered a team in a league created by jbaker something he shared in the forum.

So I have now decided to extend his invitation into the league to the main pages of Vital Pompey, not limit it to a thread in the forum as it may well have been lost.

I think 4 of us have so far entered teams but lets get more in to see who is 'king of the fantasy world' and find out who will have the bragging rights for the coming weeks and months - unless you get a team in you will never know!

It is quite easy to pick a team but I found that if you did an 'auto select' and let it pick a team for you then you at least get some inspiration and rework it from there, of course I have Ronaldo, Henry, Torres, Puyol and co in my side... or do I? The only way you will ever know is by signing up, so it is over to jbaker to explain more...


I was making a team on the official Uefa Euro 2008 Fantasy Football website, when I realised that VP don't have one yet.

I was quite happy to make a league for VP members so everyone can join and have fun.

It uses the premierleague.com engine, which is from my experience the easiest and best one (apart from the Vital Football one of course!)

Use this link http://en.fantasy.euro2008.uefa.com/ and then click on register and simply follow instructions to register and then select a team.

Once a team is selected click on the leagues section and join the Vital Pompey one by entering the code required.

The league code is: 77347-14829.

Unsuprisingly I have signed up as I like to win everything.It is a little complicated to get to the fantasy football section, you have to sign in on that page to be able to then start creating your team. Don't be put of though as it will be a lot of fun!

I shall enter a team shortly, had it been the vital one i'm afraid i would've passed, i found that not to be a patch on the premier league one we all took part in last year. Please take note Vital powers that be!

I am not the boss but I say we should welcome everyone. Who do you support Adilson?

Steve C, I agree with your comment about the vital fantasy football. Looks like they could do with changing the engine running it to one slightly more exciting.

Obviously i can only speak from my own point of view, but the previous season when we did the Premier League Fantasy Football, i liked the feel of it, it kept me coming back looking for ways to fine tune my team. Looking to see where i was compared to other people, what could i do to close the gap. I'm afraid the Vital one left me cold, I pretty much picked a team and left it, hardly ever logged in to make changes or bothered to tweak my team. I'm sure some people loved it but i'm afraid for me it was not even a poor imitation of the previous seasons competition.
