Fantasy Premier League

Fantasy Premier League is a game of skill and luck (mostly luck).  All you need in order to play is to have a device with Internet access.  Each week you pick your fantasy football team.  Each week the boffins behind the game award points to your players based on their performance. 

Each month we announce the manager of the month and the runner up.  We also name and shame (in a fun way) the manager with the fewest points.

All we ask is that participants make a one-off or regular donation to the Development Fund.

If that interests you and you would like to join, please contact, Keith Bonney – keith.bonney@bpafc.com

Season 2020-21

May 2021

This was the final month of the 2020-21 season.  Crowds returned.  Songs were sung.  Football felt uplifting.  Let’s hope we never see the like of 2020-21 again. As for Fantasy Premier League, our winner this month is Mr Consistent, Jordan Tindall with his team, Melted Cheese FC, scoring a magnificent 274 points.  Well done, Jordan!  Thanks to a fine gallop in the last game week, second place is taken by an exhausted Keith Bonney with his team, Green llama, scoring 268 points.  Somebody please shoot him. In last place, for a baffling fifth time this season, it’s Joseph Brown with his team, Wednesday Avenue, scoring 141 points.  Joseph, there’s a vacancy at the City right now.  Get your application in! We have reached the end of the season without anybody winning the Eckerslike prize.  What a shame.  Maybe next time?Well done to all the above and to everybody who took part in Fantasy Premier League in 2020-21.

Over the course of the season, we have raised £155 for the Development Fund.  Thank you to everybody who contributed. 

April 2021

As Fantasy Premier League managers, we are used to falling victim to events outside our control.  The postponement of a game owing to a ‘Glazers Out’ protest by Manchester United ‘supporters’ is, however, a sad first.  This caused many of us real football fans to lose valuable FPL points.  Guys, there are other football clubs.  You don’t have to support Manchester United. In first place this month, avoiding all the slings and arrows (how does he do it?) it’s Matt Ray with his team, Sliced Bread FC, scoring 274 points. In second spot it’s Keith Denison with his team I HATE MOSQUITOES, scoring 271 points.  Lucky. In last place it’s Joseph Brown with his team, Wednesday Avenue, scoring 165 points.  What can we say?   Come on Joseph.  You’re better than that!  Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

March 2021

With teams having double game weeks and blanks, the most successful managers this month are those who played their chips right. In first place it’s John Laban with his team, UTA, scoring a fantastic 221 points.  Top tatty. In second place it’s Matt Ray with his team, Sliced Bread FC, scoring 205 points.  Chip butty. In last place it’s Gordon Buchanan with his team, long suffering m, scoring 77 points.  Not frying tonight.   Come on Gordon.  You’re batter than that! Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

February 2021

He thinks it’s all over.  He wants to be paid now.  But 25 other managers disagree.  Anyway, congratulations to Ashley McNulty and his team, Pay me now, for scoring a winning 414 points this month. He’s somewhat browned off about finishing second.  Our runner up this month is Matt Ray with his team, Sliced Bread FC, scoring 402 points. He only turns up one day a week so it’s no surprise he’s bottom of the league.  Joseph Brown.  Wednesday Avenue.  212 points.  Come on Joseph.  You’re better than that. For all our managers the cup is over for another season and we are, as the saying goes, concentrating on the league.  Huge congratulations to Matt Ray who made it through to the tenth (yes, tenth) round of the competition.   The BPA Development Fund has made its mark on FPL. Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

January 2021

Melted Cheese is on fire again this month.  Well done, Jordan. 346 points.  Too hot for the rest of us.  Buzzing along in second place is I HATE MOSQUITOES managed from behind the nets by Keith Denison. 331 points.  Get in. Finishing in last place again is Joseph Brown with Wednesday Avenue, scoring 180 points. Come on Joseph.  You’re better than that! Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

December 2020

A difficult month with injuries, squad rotation and last-minute cancellations.  So, an extra loud cheer for our winner this month, Lucy Denison with her team Tikka Mo Salah, scoring 391 points. The runner-up is, no surprise, Jordan Tindall with his team, Melted Cheese FC, scoring 366 points.  Don’t worry Jordan, some of us would love to be a bridesmaid. In last place this month is Joseph Brown with his team Wednesday Avenue, scoring 229 points.  Interestingly, 229 points would have won the league in November.  Nevertheless, come on Joseph. You’re better than that! Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

November 2020

The winner this month is Gordon Buchanan with his team, long suffering m, scoring 204 points. The runner-up is Mister Consistent, Jordan Tindall with his team, Melted Cheese FC, scoring 195 points.  Come on Jordan, give someone else a chance. Seriously, well done both of you. In last place this month is our good friend Woody Eckerslike with his team, Olympique Woodyside, scoring a miserable 115 points.  Come on Woody. Pull your socks up.  You’re better than that! Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

The winner this month is Barry Hutchinson with his team, Blink-1 Eto’o, scoring 253 points. The joint runners-up are Chris Parker with his team, Deportivo La Corona and Jordan Tindall with his team, Melted Cheese FC, each scoring 252 points. Congratulations to all. In last place this month is Paul Armitage with his team, Electric Avenue, scoring 169 points.  Come on Paul.  You’re better than that! Nobody won the Eckerslike prize this month.

September 2020

The winner this month is Lucy Denison with her team, Tikka Mo Salah, scoring 198 points. The runner-up is Jordan Tindall with his team, Melted Cheese FC, scoring 194 points. Congratulations to both.
