Alright AM, thanks for getting it going...at least this will keep us a bit distracted until the new EPL Fantasy season. I'm in with a different team name this time, it's..."Los Once Guevones". Thanks for dedicating your valuable time to this helpless addicts hahaha.

Greg it is ok...Fabregas said he will not leave, but if he does it only means that Arsenal must spend big to replace him!!!!

The most surprise thing is that I see a LOT of players from the US! Are they lying about their nationality while register? Or, is THAT many people from US like football (OK, soccer in the US)? And they like football in a way that they play YFF and WC fantasy and following this blog?

Assistant Manager said...

Caleb - would it surprise you to know that from the 500,000 hits the blog has had since it began, almost 25% are from the USA? Consider we get just under 20% from Malaysia & only 15% from the UK & you start to get the idea! :)

p.s. Can't believe we have 101 members in the 1st blog league already! I assumed there was 100 team limited but we've already surpassed...anyone know what the limit is (if there even is one?)

@ AM:

I really can't believe it! When I used to live in US, I don't know a lot of lads following EPL. Anyway, probably things have changed in these few years.....

Ian Sanderson said...

Hi AM
If you press Administer your league it will show that the number of members in your league is UNLIMITED.
You can close it to new entrants at any time if you wish

as far as the americans who like football/ soccer. i have been playing since i was 5 and am still playing down here in brasil. it is hard to be really into football because it used to never be on tv. i could only watch world cups, euro championships and champions league finals. since the early 90's more kids, boys and girls, play soccer than any other sport. the problem is that when they stop or get older, people don't follow it. on tv you watch college basketball, NBA, baseball and american football dominate the airwaves and the money. people who continue to play, still prefer to watch the big leagues, because they are marketed to believe that soccer is boring and inferior. for a while now the premier league has been shown on cable or satellite tv. it is the world's sport and i think americans don't like being part of the rest of the world. they would rather close themselves off and only watch sports that they invented. the other problem is that losers are a bad thing in the US and the men's national team hasn't been the force that americans require to support. the problem with the american system for football, is that you don't have professionals coaching kis. you have parents or neighbors, so the kids don't learn the technical side, nor the football brain.
