So, kick-off 3p.m tomorrow for the start of the new fantasy football season.
My dreams for the season ahead – improve on last year’s performance. Less said about that the better. Turns out most teams have ended up looking very similar indeed, with a number of key players forming the basis for most squads, i.e Cech, Terry, Lampard of Chelsea; Ferdinand + van Nistelrooy of Man Utd.; with most people also taking Lauren of Arsenal, Bent of Charlton, plus Gerrard and/or Nolan.
Should be interesting to see how the 3/4 players that differ work out and determine how the sides perform – is almost like 5-a-side! Appropriate since staff up the stakes by playing fiver-a-side, meaning each team puts Ã�Â£5 in the pot, winner takes all. Ended up Ã�Â£60 beer money for the champion last season, so not to be sniffed at.
