THE BOOK OF CONTS

Updated for 2022

WELCOME TO THE BOOK OF CONTS – YOUR GUIDE TO THE FFUK WHATSAPP GROUP!

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 110 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. 

Please find below our 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.

But this post isn’t all about rules and codes of conduct it is also a helpful tool.  

Below 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.

THE GAME

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:
