Fantasy Football

Update: Okay then, an OYB league it is. The code for entry is 278930-276658 at http://fantasy.premierleague.com. Since this will get lost by the above Poulsen post and the imminent season preview I'm about to put up, I'll try to pimp this on Twitter and at the end of the Arsenal match preview on Friday for "maximum exposure."


Meant to throw this up a couple of weeks back, thought it too soon, and promptly forgot, as is my wont. So, it's last minute, but there's still time to sign up fantasy football if you're of a mind.

I always use the Premier League's game – http://fantasy.premierleague.com – and I always sign up for Never Captain Nicky Butt's league, as it's easily the best fantasy football blog on the net. You can join Nicky Butt's league, which currently has approximately three million people or so, by entering the code 5850-2492 after clicking on the "join a league" link once you set up your team.

If there's interest, I'll be happy to set up an OYB league (again, I'm well aware how late this is to try to start one), so leave a comment or email me if you'd like me to. I can't promise any prizes, but if there's enough interest (at least 15-20 of you) to set one up, I might be able to swing something by May.

And for giggles, here's a pic of my team, hilariously (if I say so myself) named "Stick Your Dirk Kuyt." You'll notice I'm not starting any Liverpool players. Not even Kuyt, although I'll probably break down and buy him in a few weeks, depending on how he plays in Liverpool's system. It's the season of the reverse jinx.

OYB League sounds like a great idea.

This is probably a moot point, but I'm seeing a couple of names asking for the league here that I don't see signed up for the OYB league even though I added the update info at the top (Hi David and Rick!).

So not trying to be a jerk, and not trying to hit people over the head with it, but the sign-up info has been added at the top of this post. Get it to, all! We've almost got 20 people; I might have to find a prize somewhere. Anyone want an Owen 10 jersey from 2003 with a rip in the back?

Totally missed the update. All set now. Thanks.
