In the afterglow of last Tuesday’s friendly vs Aston Villa (“afterglow” in this case is defined as “a game after which we didn’t all feel like drinking bleach to rinse out the rancid taste”), there’s more English-soccer-related news that might interest you. No, not the Olympic tournament that kicked off yesterday (featuring Team Good Britain—downgraded from Great after giving up a late equalizer to Senegal today), I’m talking about Fantasy EPL!
If you’ve played before, you know how it works; and if you were on the Timbers Army league last year, you’ll automatically join it as soon as you set up your team.
To join the Timbers Army league, go to fantasy.premierleague.com; once you’ve registered your team (it’s free), go to Leagues > Join a League > Private League. When asked for the code, enter 210575-60962.
EPL kicks off on August 18, so you have plenty of time to craft a perfect team, without any players from [insert team you hate here], and with a really clever name and a color scheme that says “way too much time spent playing fantasy soccer.”
Good luck and may the nerdiest nerd win!
