It's just a fantasy (football league)


#1

:soccer: Those who assiduously follow The Society’s Twitter feed will know that during the Six Nations we host the #twsrugbyscore competition. Last football season we ran our very first Fantasy Football League, the winner receiving not only kudos but also a magnum of The Society’s Champagne Brut. :champagne:

If you’d like to join in, you’ll need to enter a team into the Fantasy Premier League (participation is free), and then join ‘The Society’s Sunday League’.

To take part, go to https://fantasy.premierleague.com/, create your team and then use code 1605435-384921 to be part of our league, competing against fellow members and communiteers! Good luck, and don’t forget that the season starts on Friday 11th August! :soccer:

My son and I dabbled with this last year and did … OK

(we know nothing about football)

However, with some sparkling motivation, things could get more interesting and important :slight_smile:


#3

I’m aiming to sort out my ragtag team this weekend. I always start with high aspirations but I soon take a nose dive into fantasy football reality - typical Spurs fan I guess!


#4

Spurs fan here as well. COYS!


#5

My (9yo) son and I just added ourselves - I apologise in advance for the kit he designed :slight_smile:


#6

There’s something TRULY depressing about being BELOW the ‘bottom of the league’


#7

@robert_mcintosh I’m not far behind you. Have we vetted share numbers for joining? Looks to me like some Carling drinkers have snuck in!


#8

Well, at least I’m not last any more

Oh, and it was not a good week to lose faith in Harry Kane :frowning:


#9

Glad I kept the faith!


#10

Well, THAT’s better!

Glad (again) to have switched Mr Kane for Mr Aguero :slight_smile:

Jumped from last to mid-table in one week so don’t have to be completely embarrassed :slight_smile:


#11

Glad there’s a FF league as part of this! Just joined, it’ll probably not show me until next week but happy to have some fellow wino’s for competition!


#12

I’ve had to get the transfer wild card out a little earlier than I would have liked. After a great start to the season - I was second after the first couple of weeks - my sorry excuse for a team has slid all the way down to 18th! A few goals this weekend would be nice, chaps!


#13

got a bit worried as I don’t follow news but even the Today programme mentioned Aguero might have some car crash injury … I rely on him


#14

I’ve just read that he’s broken a rib - that’s likely to be a few weeks out of the lineup :disappointed:


#15

My wild card was played a couple of weeks ago - hoping it’s a slow burn and they’ll all come good soon, and that Kane & Morata continue to score!


#16

I’m within spitting distance of last place :frowning:


#17

no need to spit very far now, heh? :wink:

I’ve made it properly into the top half - so after an awful start, it is getting a bit better


#18

Is this the weekend the Herons rise up from the bottom???

Oh the shame!


#19

Well, things are going “OK” for the moment

Having started in 90th position … out of 90, I am now up to 22nd overall

I may not win, but maybe could earn the come-back cup

:slight_smile:


#20

Now up to 16th in the Society league … you never know, that prize could still be mine!

(and 2nd in the Benevolent league)
