Alright, then. I put this out on the twitterz yesterday and we've had some early action, but this is an open invitation to all readers of the site to participate. We've set up a league at http://www.premierleague.com for our latest attempt at Premier League fantasy fun. It's free to participate. All you have to do is create a free account with the Premier League site, search for league name: Coming Home Newcastle (snappy, huh?) and put in this code: 338828-88202. From that point, you have £100m to buy 15 players (2 GK, 5 D, 5 M, 3 F), select a captain and vice captain (double points on the week) and you're good to go.
Of course, you may not want to bother as Callum has already laid claim to the trophy (I wasn't aware that there would be a trophy. Maybe we could wrangle up a used napkin from
Shearer's No. 9 (or whatever they're calling it.) Anyway, it's sure to be fun and if the smack talk has started already. . .
