    OK so here we go, Last Man Standing is open for business.

    Rules:
    Every week you choose 1 team from the weekend fixtures of the Premier League and Championship. You choose your team by posting it in that weeks thread.
    If your chosen team wins, you're through to next weeks round.
    If it doesn't, you're OUT.
    Once you've chosen a team you can't choose it again.
    Teams must be chosen before their match kicks off.
    Last man standing wins a prize of a custom user title, and plenty of kudos.
    Any disputes, I will try to resolve amicably, but my decision will be final >:D.

    Please post your chosen week 1 team in this thread.

    P.S - What's a custom user title and why would anyone want one? I thought this was going to be for money.

    In fact those people who have copied my vote this early seem suspicious to me, without a message from the seer I think we will have to view them tomorrow

    The general feedback on the other thread was that people would like to play for fun and weren't bothered about a cash prize. However, I'll stick with my original promise of a tenner, but I have a cunning plan with what the winner needs to do with it. I'll post it up later in the week.

    OK here's an idea for a prize. You each donate £1 by placing a £1 bet on the team you've chosen for week 1.
    If you go through to week 2 then you take your winnings from week 1 and place it all on your week 2 choice. And so on.

    Last man standing should win a nice few £ if you make it to the end. Obviously the initial stake is up to you, and as it's voluntary you don't even have to bet a penny, just play for the h*ll of it.
