Join the 2014/15 Men Who Stare At Books Fantasy Football League

July 24, 2014, Article by Tom in Football, Sport

Wenger is past it, van Gaal doesn’t know the English game and Rodgers blew it last year. Oh, and Pelligrini has disappeared into his own hoodie like a little feathered turtle. A new championship-winning manager is needed.

So once again we want to put your football knowledge to the test by offering you the chance to manage in the toughest league in the world. Nope, not the Bundesliga, but the world-famous and snappily-titled Men Who Stare At Books Fantasy Football League.

We’ve set up our own league on the official Barclays Premier League Fantasy Football Game and would love as many authors, bloggers, reviewers, readers and general football fans to join. Last year it was one of our own (ahem, me) who won the league by just 4 points. Can you go one better this year and steal my imaginary crown?

All you need to do is head HERE to create your team, and use this PIN number to join our league: 365937-96843 

It’s free to play, all scoring is handled by the Premier League, and you get £100 million to play with (not in real money, clearly). At the end of the season, the player who comes out on top will win nothing. It’s about the honour, not the rewards.

The season kicks off on the 15th August so get your squad together now!

Full terms and conditions of the game, as set out by the Barclays Premier League, can be seen HERE.
