With the new season kicking off this weekend, it wasn’t just managers who were sweating over their starting 11. Fantasy League is back and thanks to the Football League’s official game, Football League Manager, FL fans across the country have the opportunity to take things into their own hands.


Here at The72 we wanted to be part of the fun and it’s great to see so many of our readers join our league. If you haven’t already, go to http://www.football-leaguemanager.co.uk/ and join The72 Fans League (password: The72). We’re working on the prizes, but we promise that they won’t be too shabby. If you haven’t picked a team or joined our league yet, there’s still bags of time so get involved!

So far, Kevin Atkins leads with 57 points and a healthy £3.7m budget to his name. Sheffield Wednesday fan Amanda Nuttall isn’t far behind on 54 and Mark Hope‘s ‘Mind The Gap’  is 3rd with 49 points.  A special mention must go to Ben Travers whose team ‘Tapioca’ have somehow managed to sneak into the top 40 with a £15.6m budget remaining. Unreal.

If you’re looking to make a couple of subs for next week, it may be worth keeping an eye on last week’s highest scoring players:
