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 2023-24

January

Jurgen Klopp dropped a bombshell this month.  He announced he will retire as manager of Liverpool at the end of the season.   During his tenure, Liverpool have won seven trophies and are in contention for four more in 2023-24.  History looks kindly on those who go early.

Our winner this month is Woody Eckerslike with Olympique Woodyside.  Woody scored 143 points.  Early doors.

In second spot it’s Steven Howley with Wee Harp Athletic.  Steven scored 142 points.  Early bird.

In last spot it’s Daniel Ambler with Dude, Where’s Micah?  58 points.  Early bath.  Come on Daniel.  You’re better than that!

Half time

The first half of the season ended on 28 December.

The winner of the first half is Tim Parker.  Tim’s team, Saka Potatoes, amassed 1,049 points.  Congratulations Tim.  Veuve Clicquot.

In the runner up spot, it’s Daniel Ambler with Dude, Where’s Micah?  Daniel clocked up 1,040 points.  Well done, Daniel.  Laurent-Perrier.

Finishing in last position, it’s Joseph Brown with Wendy’s Owls.  Joseph scored 839 points.  Commiserations Joseph.  Irn-Bru.

Keith Denison has published the full league table on the BPA Forum.  Thank you, Keith.

The second half of the season got underway on 30 December.  We have re-set the game and all managers start again on nul points. 

So far this season our managers have raised £80 for the Development Fund.  Thank you to those who have contributed.  Every £ benefits the football club so if you enjoy the game, please consider making a donation.

Good luck for the second half of the season!

December

How much does Chelsea wild man Mark Cucurella pay for his Barnet?  Surely his hairdresser has the easiest gig in the world.  Stevie G was always a doddle too.  Number 5 all over.  Bish bosh.  There you go.  Phil Foden on the other hand takes great care with his mop top.  He turns out with a new style virtually every week.  Always image conscious, our FPL managers take great pride in their coiffure too.

First into the barber’s chair this month it’s Richard Higginbottom with Higgy’s Hotshots.  387 points.  Man bun.

Next, it’s Jordan Tindall with Melted Cheese FC.  381 points.  Buzz cut.

Last man in this month is Joseph Brown with Wendy’s Owls.  224 points.  Comb over.  Come on Joseph.  You’re better than that!

November

David Beckham was the master when it came to bending a football round an obstacle.  These days, dead ball specialists include the likes of James Ward-Prowse at West Ham and Kieran Trippier at Newcastle.  FPL managers who don’t have these assets in their squads need to take effective counter-measures.

In first place this month it’s Tim Parker with Saka Potatoes.  172 points.  Wall.

In second it’s Steven Howley with Wee Harp Athletic.  164 points.  Bus.

In last spot it’s Carl Marsden with Choo Choo MFC.  107 points.  Doctor’s receptionist.  Come on Carl.  You’re better than that!

October

Having hit the big time, one of the first things a newly wealthy Premier League star does is head down the showroom to get himself a shiny set of wheels. 

In first place this month it’s Carl Marsden with Choo Choo MFC.  209 points.  Lamborghini.

In second spot it’s Jordan Tindall with Melted Cheese FC.  207 points.  Ferrari.

In last place it’s Joseph Brown with Wendy’s Owls.  138 points.  Clown car.  Come on Joseph.  You’re better than that!

September

Jurgen wears a tracksuit.  Roy wears a suit and tie.  Pep and Mikel are so cool they would look stylish in a bin bag.  Our Fantasy Premier League managers like to dress up too.

In first place this month it’s John Laban with Hybrids UTA.  315 points.  Cowboy.

In second place it’s Tim Parker with Saka Potatoes.  289 points.  Indian.

In last place it’s Willy Eckerslike with Locomotiv Buttershaw.  197 points.  All the other Village People.  Come on Willy.  You’re better than that!

August 2023

Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich brings to an end his very successful partnership with Son Heung-min.   During their time together at Spurs the pair made 47 goal combinations.   The top flight of English football has seen some great partnerships over the years.   Successful partnerships produce successful teams.  Doubling up on players from one team can reap rewards for FPL managers.

In first place this month it’s Lewis Sale with Bus Stoppers.  183 points.  Adams and Keown.

In second spot it’s Matt Ray with Sliced Bread FC.  174 points.  Salah and Mane.

In last place it’s Tom Jowett with Clegg Hall Misfits.  94 points.  The Cheeky Girls.  Come on Tom.  You’re better than that!
