I was persuaded by one of my MSN Buddies to enter the Channel 4 Fantasy Football thingy for The World Cup.

Basically, you choose a team of 11 players from a list of every squad competing in The World Cup. You are then awarded points based upon games won, goals scored and goal assists made by your players in real life games. Points are also taken away for games lost and goals conceded (I think).

You can pick whatever players you want, from whatever teams. The only rule is that you may only select 2 players from any one team (e.g. you may only choose 2 Brazilians, 2 Englishmen or 2 Trinidad & Tobago superstars). You then enter a league with every other participant and win prizes based upon how well you do.

You can make substitutions in between matches. So if Ronaldinho trips over his teeth and breaks his leg the night before playing England you are allowed to take him out of your own personal team. Also if David James gets chosen to go in goal you would be wise to remove every England player from your team – remember you get points taken away if your players’ team loses.

Here’s my team…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
