An unsuspecting football fanatic who is set to play Fantasy Premier League for the first time this season thinks he is being invited into loads of private leagues because he has lots of friends, it has been confirmed.
“I’m really looking forward to playing FPL… all of the lads bang on about it down the pub every single week and it sounds like a great laugh.”
“They all play for money, only £50 per man – all in the spirit of fun. They were really excited to have me on board this year so I could join in the discussion every week!”
An unnamed friend of the newbie was heard saying
“Yeah we finally got him, he just asked me for the league code.”
“He was asking me who I think makes a good captain pick for week one, so I told him that Heurelho Gomes would be a good shout because he’s a really vocal keeper.”
“I’m gonna try to get my mum to sign up too, you know, to ‘make up the numbers’.”
