As I believe most of the active followers of 86 Forever also follow the European game, and the Barclays Premier League kicking into action this Saturday, I though we could maybe share some of our teams, or even start an 86 Forever league, of our EPL Fantasy teams.
As an avid European soccer fan, I take time and hard stat crunching into selecting my Fantasy team, as well as some of you I hope. If anyone is interested in starting a minor league, feel free to comment. If you are yet to select your team, you can do so at http://fantasy.premierleague.com/
Now, for my team. As some fantasy players know, the best strategy is to buy a budget defence, and focus on your forwards and maybe midfield. Although I will likely change my squad as you can never be fully satisfied, here is my squad at the moment;
Goalkeeper: Vito Mannone (Sunderland)
Defence: Sebastian Bassong (Norwich), Matthew Lowton (Aston Villa), Maynor Figueroa (Hull City)
Forwards: Christian Benteke (Aston Villa), Rickie Lambert (Southhampton), Robin Van Persie (Manchester United)
Feel free to give advice or comment your own!
