I Have A Dream

You'd think, wouldn't you, that there was enough football in the world. But I have discovered recently that for some people watching matches and following football on the media is not sufficient: they want more. And so they wander off into the realms of Fantasy.

Fantasy Football.

Players select a 'fantasy team' out of players in the real football league. The progress of those individuals in then tracked and points awarded or deducted in the fantasy game according to what happens in real life.

Still with me?

So, for example, points might be awarded for some or all of the following achievements.
  • Playing in a match
  • Scoring a goal
  • Scoring a hat-trick
  • Making an assist
  • Keeping a clean sheet
  • Being rated highly in a newspaper report
  • Being Man of the Match

As well as the above, points can be deducted for some or all of the following:

  • Conceding a goal
  • Receiving a yellow or red card
  • Missing a penalty kick
  • Scoring an own goal
It's quite a neat idea really.

The concept was used as a theme for this show.

Wish they would bring it back. I might understand it now.
