OK, I must confess that I have playing with myself, it is an incurable habit, an addiction of sort. It all started with the banner on the site, promising a world of fun and excitement, I couldn’t help it, I clicked on it, and got myself into this… Tiger FC Fantasy League, and now I have my own fantasy football team! :D

Tiger FC Fantasy Football

Some of you already know that I follow the Barclays Premier League quite a bit and play futsal regularly (so don’t ask why I don’t gain weight with all these food), and it was actually from my futsal buddies that I started out with this whole fantasy football thingy last season.

For those of you who are still wondering what on Pete’s world is fantasy football, it is basically a game where you assemble a football team of your own from real world players. When they score or perform well, you win points. You also get to buy and sell players as their value changes from week to week. The goal of the game (pun intended) is of course, to get the most points. Game rules here.

I registered and log on to the site and started to create my team, the first thing I noticed was the avatar for the team manager, and I couldn’t help myself but choose this one. Can you see the resemblance with a certain famous ex BPL manager? It was a no brainer I chose him. Hahahaha

my handsome football manager

To start out, each team is given 115,000 pounds to buy 11 players and a manager. With some players costing over 20,000 pounds, it is not as simple as just picking all the best players, you gotta have a vision to pick players that gives you the best value. You are also limited to have only a maximum of 3 players from the same team. Here is the selection I hope to beat all of you!

*fingers crossed*

my team. sorry, there’s no pretty boys

By the way, there are prizes to be won. The highest scoring manager at the end of the season wins a trip for 2 to UK! Then there’s Nintendo DS, Ipod, handphone, x-box, and other monthly and half season prizes too.

So let the game begins! Join me and let me beat you :P

If you really have some guts, join the mini league I created

Note: Yessss! I have 2 players and also the manager from Man City, who conveniently pwned Portsmouth 6-0 last weekend. 11 points for Shaun Wright Philips and 13 on Robinho! Yeay!
