Not the best start to the season for Fantasy Premier League, the hugely popular, free game for grown ups, which crashed today.

At time of writing fantasy.premierleague.com is reachable, but members can't sign in and make any changes to teams - apparently this is important because of the postponement of the Spurs-Everton game on the first day of the Barclays Premier League seaon.

According to one our informants, Reg reader James, there is an IT angle. He writes:

[FPL] have upgraded and "improved" it (as far as one can tell, mostly with eye candy: the fundamentals are nearly identical to last year which ran almost without a single hitch, but the graphics are more complex, and they support trivial amounts of drag and drop). Week 1 is this weekend: deadline is mid-morning today to have everything decided on. Anyway, under the rather predictable load of week 1, with a few hours to the deadline to pick a squad and choose a team, it has collapsed in a heap.

Oh well. ®
