Wantasy Football

Just went in to set up a team and saw under leagues there was the option to renew the Wantasy Football one. There were only 4 other teams in it last year (think it was only set up the day before the season started), and those have automatically been included (step forward BennyG FC, Marriage Of Figueroa, Maximum Kicking & Jimmy Saville U11's).

If you want in head to http://fantasy.premierleague.com.

Then once you have a team go to leagues, select Join a league and enter the code 1606146-356698

too soon.....

Published by marcosthebubble at 4:55pm on Tue 13th August 2013.

I've joined!

NB: I know nothing about football so I picked my players at random like I always do.

That last place is MINE!!

Published by Silent Rob at 5:45pm on Tue 13th August 2013.

Come on second place!

Published by BennyG at 11:53pm on Tue 13th August 2013.

Bit of a bump, with a comedy photo for good measure.

I was leading for most of last season only to be trumped once again by that bloody chicken.

Coooooooome oooooon Silent Rob's team! We're the very best at coming last!

You're looking distinctly mid-table now SR.

GAH!! That'll teach me to choose the "random team" button instead of choosing people with amusing names from tiny eastern European countries like an usually do.

Though is this league lots of teams from this country or lots of countries all over the world? I never understand which is which.

Published by Silent Rob at 1:10pm on Fri 16th August 2013.

This country.

Pah, I've already got an injured player!

^Are you going to send him grapes?

Published by ZodMod at 2:18pm on Fri 16th August 2013.

No - contrary to common opinion not all footballers are grapists.

Published by DarrylW at 2:34pm on Fri 16th August 2013.

So....who's gone for Van Persie?

Published by BennyG at 7:29pm on Fri 16th August 2013.

Too pricey for me.

Am I last place yet? I seem to have forgotten my login details already so I can't check.

Published by Silent Rob at 10:33am on Mon 2nd September 2013.

Nope, you're in 9th of 11, having had an above average week.

Anyone who is below me must be completely rubbish at WANtasy football! :D

Last time I played fantasy football in the office I still inexplicably managed to beat someone for most of the league, even though I chose all my players at random, didn't do a single transfer and still had about 10 million quid left over. I was only overtaken right at the very end fortunately for the poor chap I was beating.

Published by Silent Rob at 11:32am on Mon 2nd September 2013.

Maybe Arsene Wenger has the same strategy.

Published by ZodMod at 11:49am on Mon 2nd September 2013.

I used to quite enjoy playing text only football manager games back in the day. I used to sell all my players and sit on about 20 million quid, then watch as my team inexplicably managed to loose 1 goal to 18, despite the fact they had no players whatsover.

My sole tactic for fantasy football is to select a team who are all wearing different tops.

Published by Rocket Dog at 3:59pm on Mon 2nd September 2013.

Seems my tactic of forgetting all about fantasy football for 3 weeks is paying off.

Published by arthurCRS at 12:57pm on Mon 23rd September 2013.

Wow, seems my tactic of tirelessly tracking every player worth buying and poring over each and every single transfer for hours and hours has finally paid off. Not really worth it on reflection.

Incidentally, what were the CHANGE NAME teams originally called?

Am I still last?

Published by Silent Rob at 8:25am on Wed 2nd October 2013.

You've never been last Rob :)

Published by BennyG at 11:33pm on Wed 2nd October 2013.

Baaaaaahhhh! :(

Published by Silent Rob at 8:18am on Thu 3rd October 2013.

Commiserations BennyG. You were a worthy adversary this year and you probably deserved the win.

Published by chicken at 9:57am on Mon 12th May 2014.

Did I come last in this?

Published by Silent Rob at 11:54am on Mon 12th May 2014.

1 point. 1 measly point. Really thought I had you this year! :)

I took my eye off the ball there - thought the WAN league was won so I started copying a workmate's team in order to not lose out in that league (for which I won actual money). On reflection, I think I'd rather have won the WAN one.

Oh well, we go again.....

Published by BennyG at 7:33pm on Mon 12th May 2014.

On the off-chance anyone cares, the usual league has been renewed. Anyone in from last season is automatically enrolled - there are currently six teams.

Entered! I have £33 million pounds left over this year, which I will spend on cocaine and prostitutes for the manager, not the boring players. Being completely faithful to my wife the prostitutes will do all my cleaning and admin.

This year I abandoned by previous policy of choosing players by the most stupid names, this time I chose my players completely at random, so long as they were the cheapest available.

My kit is a shocking neon pink shirt, neon green shorts and neon blue socks.

Am I last yet?

Published by Silent Rob at 1:47pm on Thu 11th August 2016.

I'm in!

When I do this at work, I do a forfeit by buying a round of drinks if I DON'T come last. Lol.
