Pleased to say Big Iain is back for another year too. I bet he can't believe the DDP has lasted so long!

You appear to be missing the whole idea of shot in the dark. I literally sat down and wrote the first 25 celebrities i could think of I'm not expecting any points from that team.

My main team has just been sent off.

 

Some really tough decisions and certainly my riskiest team yet.

Teams I'll be watching out for in 2017, the pre-squad announcement contenders if you will:

 

 

  • Davey's Showbiz Pals/Living End/Thomas Jefferson Survives - fairly obvious
  • Heading Nowhere - to see if they can build on this (what looks to be, as of 2pm Hogmanay) near miss.
  • The Love Boat - who I suspect will be far improved in 2017.
  • Rad Guy's To Kill a Gabor Sister (or name changed) and Joey Russ's Day in the Death - Not likely to win, but newish teams bouyant about their chances...
  • Golden Slumbers - Bert made a record score in 2016 with nae research after all...
  • Cancel My Appointments - I think Sir Creep will be much closer to the top in 2017.
  • The Grey Horde - If they don't show up...
  • Octopus of Odstock - Well, you never know...

I'd urge you to get excited about the new three Crumble teams...!

 

Gooseberry Crumble

Blueberry Crumble

Apricot Crumble

 

I'm hoping my crumbles make an impression in their debut year!

I left leah bracknell off my list there is a good chance she may die but i have a feeling she will make 2018. She looked well in a interview in october not someone who is ready to die soon from terminal cancer. She is youngish and female which boosts her survival odds too.

As a novice at this, I've sent in two teams but am yet to receive a confirmation (one on the 30th December) NZT. Just checking it's all legit and also making sure I haven't fucked up somewhere along the path.

 

Might send in a third team for larks.

Don't worry TMIB will still be wanking over enjoying the spoils of the Scousers demolition of City.

My main team and theme team are in my signature. Originally submitted a team right after window opened, but 3 of them didn't make the starting line, and had some dreadfully awful sub picks, so I decided to create an entirely new team with many of the same picks but several changes too. None of my "dead certs" are likely to be unique anyways so that's not really a concern.

Well I've sent mine in. I look forward as always to finding out who is actually completely fine and who managed to evade my search terms. And that leaving off a certain hit for someone worth potentially a few more points is probably a poor idea...
