WEEK 8 - CLEAN SHEETS CAUSE CHAOS
Clean sheets for Brighton, Burnley, Watford, Sheffield United and Newcastle in particular caused some serious damage to many Nightmare managers' hopes. Our leaders Keep Calm And Mkhitaryan suffered from three -3 scores for their defenders - although one of those came from Aston Villa defender Bjorn Engels who was taken off before Villa conceded, and had played more than the 70 minutes required to qualify for a full clean sheet. They do of course stay top, but their lead is reduced from 61 points to 47.
 
CHIVS TOP THE WEEK
So in a week of widely varying Nightmare scores, Chivtasticoos take the Nightmare 11 of the Week award with 38 points. Lee Chivers may be retrospectively happy that Watford's Craig Dawson was dropped - although it may be bad news in the longer term... will he get back in for the visit to Spurs with the Hornets finally getting a clean sheet? The Chivs' only negative boy this week was Norwich's Josip Drmic who made his 6th sub appearance of the season and came on to get their goal. In contrast to Dawson maybe that's good news, will he maybe even get a start sometime soon? Among their decent performers this week is Sergio Aguero with 6 points. Chivtasticoos move to within a point of top spot in Division Three... if they didn't have Aguero they'd be 9 points clear even if his alternative had no points...
 
LEGENDS ROCKET TO TOP OF DIVISION TWO
While Chivtasticoos have made up 32 points on Imperial booze cruise in the last two weeks to reduce the gap at the top of Division Three to a point, we do have a new leader of Division Two this week. Not even in the promotion zone before this weekend, 33 points is enough to see Luke's Legends jump from 4th to top spot. Outgoing leaders Incubis managed just 5... through a combination of injury and being dropped, only two of Incubis' back 6 played, and they both picked up clean sheets and -3 points.

NIGHTMARE SOCCER - free fantasy football with a sense of humour
 
ENTRY STILL OPEN FOR THE NEW SEASON
Our existing Managers are under way, but you can enter Nightmare Soccer at any time - your Nightmare 11 will be entered into a new Division with other new teams so you're not at a disadvantage even when the season has started.

Click the Join Now link above to join the fun, read about Nightmare Soccer below and/or click the About link to find out more...
 
he's having a nightmare!
As football fans we’ve all experienced that feeling of exasperation when your star striker misses a sitter, puts a penalty past the post or just goes missing for 90 minutes. The sudden onset of desperation when your centre back nods the ball over your ‘keeper into his own net, and the deflation when your captain is sent off for a silly second yellow just when it looks like your team’s getting back into the match.

Well now you can turn these Nightmare events to your advantage... play Nightmare Soccer now!
 
what's it about?
Nightmare Soccer challenges you to pick the worst team possible from the Premier League. Pick your selection of unlikely lads to make up your Nightmare 11 - then sit back and watch them perform... disastrously, you hope! You gain points from your players’ misfortunes - if your forwards can’t score, they’ll be doing well in Nightmare Soccer. If your goalkeeper is conceding lots of goals, he’ll be a Nightmare star too. It’s all quite simple - the worse your Nightmare 11 perform, the more points they get. So every time one of your players ‘has a Nightmare’ you can look forward to a successful week in Nightmare Soccer.
 
what does it cost and what can i win?
The rather sad hobby of one man for 20 years now, Nightmare Soccer is just for fun. It’s completely free to play and there are no big cash prizes to win. Our big winners receive an engraved Nightmare Soccer pint glass to commemorate their achievements; other prizes include mugs, key rings, pens, mouse mats etc.
 
build your unique Nightmare 11 in the player auctions
Did you ever play a fantasy football game, have an amazing week then find out your best mate’s got all the same players that did so well for you? Would Harry Kane have been so effective last season if he was playing for 13 teams each week, as he was in the fantasy mini league I took part in? When you enter Nightmare Soccer your team is allocated into a division with a maximum of 16 teams and we start the season with a bidding war, the gloves come off as you fight it out for the players you want. Safe in the knowledge no-one else in your division has any of your players, you really can enjoy your Saturday night on that magical day when one of your Nightmare boys misses a penalty, scores an own goal and gets sent off.

Once the season starts, you can change your team whenever you want, but you will only be able to buy players who are not already playing for another Nightmare 11 in your division. A new signing starts playing for you from the start of the next set of Premier League matches - so if you buy a player once a weekend's set of fixtures is already under way, he won't score any points for your Nightmare 11 until the next set of matches.
 
promotion, relegation, cup competitions and even the Nightmare Soccer champions' league
Because your team competes in a realistic size division, Nightmare Soccer gives you the extra challenges of aiming for promotion, to avoid relegation, and to qualify for Europe. Finish high enough in your division and you could qualify for the Champions’ League or the Eur’opeless League the following season.

If you’re awful enough to qualify for Europe, your team will go head to head with another Nightmare team on Champions’ League and Eur’opeless League match days. Unlike other competitions where head to head ties usually end in ridiculous results like 64-42, our innovative ‘goal scoring’ system means match scores are realistic and there’s a fair chance of ties ending in a draw.

Our domestic Cups follow the same format… the Sweet-FA Cup is our version of the FA Cup.
