The Football Season is Upon us

Posted by Jarv on July 27, 2009

Well almost anywaythe football league kick off and Community shield less than 2 weeks away and the Premiership kick off just less than 3 weeks away. Its that time of year my mind turns to my fantasy football team and my season predictions.

My rough Fantasy football squad is just about finished and i’ll tweak it over the next couple of weeks, i found it harder this year as most of my last years victorius league championship winning team’s value had gone up quite a bit and Ronaldo has left the league so it has been tough, Do you think you have what it takes to beat me this season? visit this thread on the away goals rule football forum. Check back here for regular game updates

Its prediction time as well and awaygoalsrule has a new prediction game here which covers all levels of English football and european football, Give it a go its a one time only thing, once you have made your selections all the work is mine to update it, check back here for monthly updates.

Real football v Fantasy football?

Posted by Jarv on October 22, 2008

no, this isn’t a rant about money ruining football its about being pleased that a player of a team you hate has scored because he is in your fantasy football team.

Someone posted on the Away Goals Rule Football Forum that having certain players in his team changed how he perceived certain events and went as far as to say one of his Liverpool supporting friends had given up playing fantasy football because they were sick of hearing other Liverpool supporters watch Manchester united beat them last season and saying “Happy Days, Ronaldo’s in my Fantasy football team”

Now, personally i try to steer clear of team’s players i want to lose every week, namely Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea to make sure i don’t have any divided loyalties. That being said I’d take Manchester United winning the league over winning the fantasy football.

I have heard friends say tho that they were please Ronaldo had scored because of fantasy football, most of whom really don’t like him which is strange to say the least.

What’s your opinion? have a look at the The Trouble with Fantasy Football thread on the Footy unlimited section of
