Fantasy Football
It’s been a few gameweeks since I sent an update but after another incredible week, it’s all about one man: Danny Frondigoun of the Law Society Gazette. Danny currently resides top of the Media Industry Fantasy Football League and 640th in the world. I asked Danny what his secret has been this year. He finished 227,00 last year. He replied that he’s actually looking at it this year. Come on Danny, you must be holding out on us here? One reason for Danny’s success, I’ve noted, is that he’s very good at placing the armband on players – see Costa this week when so many of us went for Kane or Aguero. I seem to remember pre-Christmas that Danny put the armband on Charlie Austin in the week he scored a hat-trick. Some might say this is luck but I know another player who’s an average finisher of about 15,000 each year and he similarly gets it right consistently. It’s more than just luck. Do you consider captains other than the ordinary in order to differentiate yourself from the pack Danny? What else? Danny was 486,000 in gameweek 4 and has climbed pretty much progressively ever since then. This shows it can be done at any time and that you don’t have to have an amazing start in order to maintain a high placing. Currently at 640 in the world with 1316 points, the overall leader of the entire game is on 1418. So Danny’s only 102 off top spot which can be made up with some good captaincy decisions, overall play and luck. Will you play safe Danny or risk those differentials to try and make up those 102 points? Here’s what you can win from the actual game itself: The overall winner of Fantasy Premier League 2014/15 and his/her guest will be treated to a 7-night break in the United Kingdom and will experience VIP hospitality at TWO Barclays Premier League matches during the 2015/16 season, visit a selection of major UK tourist attractions such as the Tower of London, The Beatles Story in Liverpool or spend a day exploring the spectacular Brecon Beacons countryside in Wales. Other experiences to look forward to in Britain could be a ride on the London Eye while sipping champagne, a visit to the National Football Museum in Manchester or a trip up The Shard to experience unrivalled views across the capital from the top of Europe’s tallest building. Transfers to and from the UK and 7 nights’ accommodation is also included in the prize. Actually, that’s a pretty poor prize considering over 3,000,000 people play it. A couple of days in Liverpool or Wales? Focus on the big bucks I’d say – go for the media industry league victory! Here’s the current Top 15:
