    Hey Guys. I'm going to be running a league with the best teams from the top leagues in the best footballing countries in the World. Countries like Spain, France, Italy, Argentina, Brazil, England (Hah!) etc....

    I'm choosing the 20 teams, and I will decide the fixtures. Every sunday, new fixtures will be put up. Matches take place on a saturday, and through the week, you can vote on who you think will win the matches. On fridays, I will count up which teams have the most votes, and they will win their match that week. The more votes, the higher the score!

    Example
    Man United V Barcelona

    Barca have 74 votes, Man United have 31.

    Barcelona win 3-1!

    11. Marseille
    12. LA Galaxy
    13. Leeds United
    14. Persepolis
    15. Real Madrid
    16. Roma
    17. River Plate
    18. Sao Paulo
    19. Schalke 04
    20. Sydney FC

    Fixtures Week 1

    Re: Best League Ever!

    Are we supposed to give points determined on how we imagine the matches would happen in real life, or on who we'd prefer to win?

    You say what scoreline you think would happen in real life mate

    And God, I'm going to give who scored and how they did it. Like "Iniesta headed home in the 90th minute, from a perfect Messi cross, to make the game 4-1.
    For derbies I'm going to write a little report, seeing as it's a big match.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Best League Ever!

    Can same the same with the Asian teams (including Sydney FC), Middle eastern ones & Leeds. Could of refined the list a little bit by asking others what they thought of the top 20 teams, could of maybe introduced a G14 sort of backstory towards it but aside from those negatives seeems a nice niche sort of idea.

    Thanks for the positive feedback. I thought I had put this in the backstory, but it was the best teams from every continent. Sydney are the best in Oceana, Seoul are the best in Asia. I also saw the two Middle Eastern teams in action once and thought they were quite good so decided to add them. Leeds are my team so I had to put them in.

    Do you have any ideas who should be in? Feel free to tell me so I know?

    Of course this is up to debate my list would be this at the moment at least, in no order btw, plus the last four were scraping the barrel as such.

    1: Manchester United
    2: Arsenal
    3: Chelsea
    4: Liverpool
    5: Manchester City
    6: Tottenham
    7: Lyon
    8: Shaktar
    9: CSKA Moscow
    10: Barcelona
    11: Real Madrid
    12: Porto
    13: Inter Milan
    14: Juventus
    15: AC Milan
    16: Bayern Munich
    17: Schalke
    18: Boca Juniors
    19: River Plate
    20: Ajax

    makes sense then, although you have Liverpool in your profile bar which is confusing.

    Re: Best League Ever!

    If we're talking about your 2nd list, I'd say that was nearer the mark for current best teams, you've got the 8 champions league teams in.

    I was going to make an argument that Celtic and Rangers should be in, but tbf they haven't had a great year in europe, so prob shouldn't make it on.

    Boca and River aren't in europe, as for the rest of the world, not many other countries would have a team that could challenge the 20 in the list

    I like that you included more than Europe - Argentina and Brazil definitely deserve inclusion, and it'll be interesting to see if the smaller teams in Asia and elsewhere can pick up a win.

    Re: Best League Ever!

    Wanted the world? Yet even though Shaktar & CSKA are in my list, could be argued that those Two are more nearer the East than the West & River Plate & Boca are both from South America, I would love to make a list where teams from all continents would be evenly matched but alas I can't. Fc Sydney, Fc Seoul & the two Iranian teams would struggle to make the Championship.
