    Warriors team sheet typed!

    Hopefully no spelling mistakes as it was rather last minute.

    Sam, you bit swot - I have absolutely no idea what the ownership percentages are of any of my team! I've a feeling I'm going straight to the back of the class this year with "could try harder" on my end of season report card from Rosie.

    You'll be surprised at my midfield though - not playing so safe this season ...

    Good luck everyone and may the best girl win! Oh. That's Rosie then.

    I didn't know the ownership percentages of my team either until Sam mentioned it and I took a look and now wish I hadn't 😱😱😱😱.

    Your way too modest Winnie I can only recall finishing in front of you once and that was when you got locked out of the Warriors dressing room. 😳

    Expect Sam is having his prematch grey rinse applied and perfecting his miserable sullen look as he morphs into Jose. 😨

    “This is a game with two goals, but there is one team that like to play without the ball. That team plays really well and the ball goes and goes and goes and the quality of the ball possession is good, but they don’t score. No points. They asked the FIFA committee if they can win like this but they’re told it’s not possible. That the bigger possession is not essential to win matches and they are not champions.”

    “Then, there is another team. Only with one goal. And they score a lot of goals, from players in every position, and they score and they score and they score. But they never concede a goal because there’s no goal. They speak to FIFA and they say they can’t be champions because there is only one goal.”

    There is a third team, and the third team wants to play with two goals. They were scoring some, they were also conceding some. But they score really beautiful goals and then the bus comes along and they couldn’t do it.”

    This is my preseason drivel thathe definitely makes sense and is 100% not a Mourinho statement

    Week 1

    Week 1 has seen some serious scoring from our teams but the glory depended on who our managers chose as their captain.

    Step forward 7 very wise managers who gave Lukaku the armband, while five unwise managers picked Kane as their chosen one. It was a no contest Lukaku literally wiped the floor with Kane earning 26 points for his teams against 2points. Lukaku was followed by Aguero 18 points and Lacazette 12 points.

    Propping up the Week 1 Table


    15 - BB - Billesley Villans

    Dave's captain Cahill did not help his cause on -6 points which helped secure his 17th position. However Dave don't despair we also award a coveted weekly Drongo for the manager finishing on the lowest points and because of the Cahill debacle you are awarded a Mare of the week as well.

    I know you are still spewing from yesterdays result but we will all have a collection by the end of the season. As Bongo likes to say think of Yazz - The Only Way Is Up

    First gameweek over on 37 to go.

    Thank you for your review.. I've missed this 😁

    Well hope I haven't peaked too soon

    Haha nice one Rosie. Welcome to the league drongo Dave.
    Well done Picasso!

    lucky first week dazzy

    Dizzy will fall from that height very soon.

    I am pleased. My team played well. My choice for captain showed why he is superior to Kane. You cannot win the league on the opening day nor can you lose it but I would rather be 5th that 15th after round one.

    I did not see what happened with the Warriors but I assume they are already midtable. My uncle taught me everything I know but I have learned more since then.

    José is the special one. The Harriers are a special team

    I feel honoured it's the first thing I have ever won although steve Bruce cannot be far behind me 😎

  10. #30
    Yes, thank you Romelu. Captain choice/luck appears to be ***** in this game. Kane could quite easily have scored two and the table would look very different..........but then he never scores in August.

    Week 2

    While 7 smug managers looked on in amusement at some of the antics of their suffering rivals which included head shaking 😢, wails of despair 😩 and some choice language 😡, and that was just Rosie. 😝 Yes it was the week 2 announcement of the captains scores. 😱 It will come as no surprise that Lukaku was again the the top choice with 6 of our managers earning 12 points, however the honour of top scoring captain was Mane with 16 points and only our tactical wizard Picasso had the sense to make him his chosen one. ⭐️ I think we can safely say our other captains aren't worth mentioning.


    MANAGER OF THE WEEK

    This week sees the award go to Gornal and Gornal Villans amassing 75 amazing points 18 points ahead of his nearest rival. Super performance by Gornal considering his captain only earned 4 points. 🤗🤗⭐️


    TOP 6

    1. Gornal - Gornal Villans
    2. Mr Tee - Tony
    3. Hubball's Harrier's - Jose
    4. Pedigree Chump - Dazzy
    5. Cubist Masterpiece - Picasso
    6. Bongo United - Bongo


    RELEGATION

    15. BB - Billesley Villans
    16. TDFC - TD
    17. Chinese Takeaway - Arran


    DRONGO 🎩

    Arran secures this weeks award. It was a close call with Dave not wanting to handover the hat although he tried his best with yet another red card this time courtesy of Walker, Arran prevailed. 😳


    3 Wildcards played this week. Nuc, Oz and Jesh.

    Why is Gareth not in your team Bongo and only a bench warmer? 😛😝😜

    Uncle Tony still holding off 'the special one' Jose may have a few words to say. 😆

    Has Dave's team got a discipline problem with 2 red cards in 2 games. 😆😁😄

    After gameweek 3 it appears that there is a 2 week break for World Cup qualifiers, so Fantasy League will be back on 9th September.

  12. #32
    I understand the FL disciplinary council will send a hefty fine if a club amasses too many cards. Talk to your team Dave.

  13. #33
    Great write up Rosie. Many thanks. But for my captain I would have had a terrible week. Quite a lot of points separate top from bottom already!

  14. #34
    Can you win the league in week one? Can you win the league in week two? I am not interested in the table until the end of the season. With my Ibra coming back it will be difficult for most managers to see how to play their teams. But not for special ones -José

  15. #35
    It's a marathon not a sprint although at this rate I will be relegated by Christmas! !!

  16. #36
    Maybe just fired by then. TD out!!!

  17. #37
    Had a shocker, wanna sack my whole team

  18. #38
    Nice one Rosie. Steady eddy start for me.

  19. #39
    Thanks Rosie!

    Yubby, I've only dropped to 8th to make you feel better.

    I see the class swot is at number 3!


    Non special one's feeble attempt at deflecting attention from a truly appalling performance from my Warriors.

    Not really sis, but thanks
