I contacted pupils and staff over the summer to advertise the school's inaugural Fantasy Football League Season. For those of you who don't know, Fantasy Football is a game in which you have a budget to pick a squad of players and you then score points based on how well your selected team performs in each week's Premier League fixtures.
For example, if you refuse to include Aaron Ramsey in your team because you believe there is no way he can continue to maintain his current level of performance, then you'll be filled with regret each and every time he proves you wrong (63% of players worldwide have him in their team...I am not one of them). Or, if you can't stand Luis Suarez because of his undeniably long list of character defects, you'll be rather upset when he scores 4 times against Norwich and you aren't one of the beneficiaries (40% of players have Suarez selected in their team).
There are just under 70 entrants in this year's competition and I would expect there to be even more next year, given the number of pupils who have expressed an interest. I would also hope for a larger staff presence - we need your help!As it stands:
I really should have posted this last week when I was still part of the Top 20, but, like my beloved Manchester United, I am sure to make a thrilling comeback...you'll see, you'll all see!
It is reasonably close at the top, with several players just one good week away from taking top spot. The prize at stake? Pride, honour (unless you have Suarez on your team), bragging rights, that is...unless I can twist Mr. Charles' arm between now and the season's end!
