Welcome to the Book of Conts, the thing you never knew you needed… Until now! 

If you are here then you are (probably) in the FFUK WhatsApp group. Good job by you on that. 
Pete and Chris started the group with a few mates but it has grown exponentially and now over 90 of the league have joined, meaning it has exceeded any expectations we ever had. With that, we have had to introduce some rules so that everything runs smoothly. 

New this season – we have also introduced a code of conduct:
The FFUK community support & embrace the individuality & nuances of people & the diversities in society.

We do not accept & will not tolerate discrimination of any kind whether it be overt or subtle in nature.

Please post, share & contribute with kind & thoughtful intentions as not to distress or offend any of our members.

Put simply, as long as you remember that this is a football group and keep it football related then you will be ok. 
Please also remember that not everyone knows each other and we have fans representing 24 different clubs from all around the country.

And here they are in a beautiful pie chart:


But this post isn’t all about rules and codes of conduct it is also a helpful tool. 
Here is a glossary of terms that we use regularly in the group. This is handy for all of us but for any newcomers to the group it will introduce you to lots of emojis and acronyms that we regularly use. 
So if you are searching for answers to questions like “Why do they keep posting a horse emoji?” then you are in the right place.



First lets turn our attention to to FPL itself and a few abbreviations that may be useful, some of these are more prevalent than others:

  • Ass = Assist
  • NAG or ๐Ÿด or ๐ŸŽ = No Assist Given
  • WGTA= Who got the assist?
  • GW = Gameweek eg. GW1

  • BB = Bench Boost Chip
  • FH = Free Hit
  • FT = Free Transfer
  • WC = Wildcard
  • CS = clean sheet

  • POO = Reverse Out of Position
  • ๐Ÿงค = Save as in good save/big save
  • ๐ŸŸ = chip
  • ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ = VAR



This game is all about the players and some of them are harder to say than others. Therefore we have abbreviated many of them. In no particular order:

  1. KDB = Kevin De Bruyne AKA The Ginger Prince (Man City)

  13. ๐Ÿงข ๐Ÿ’ฉ = Capoue
  14. ๐Ÿ‘‘ = King
  15. ๐ŸŽฑ ๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿซ = Paul Pogba or Pog
  16. ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป = Lookman
  17. ๐ŸŒ€ (Hurricane) = Kane

  27. ๐Ÿ‘€ = Ozil
  28. ๐Ÿ‘– = Pepe
