PREMIER LEAGUE PREDICTIONS:
Newcastle v Arsenal
If ever there was an opportunity for the Geordies to get their act together in front of what must be the most tolerant fan base in the Premiership, then this is surely it. They proved they can up to the very best with that fighting 0-0 draw at Manchester United last weekend and the 50,000 fans packing St James Park will expect nothing less against the misfiring Gunners.
FantasyYIRMA.com started out as most random fantasy football leagues do…
People often ask ” What does YIRMA mean? “
“I need a name for the mini-league”
“the fantasy league, we have to give it a name”
“I haven’t got a ******* clue. Sure name it after Yir Ma!”
This statement was thus taken literally and FantasyYIRMA was born!!
Since 2008 more than 15,000 people have now entered a Fantasy YIRMA mini-league.
The main league is free to play and the £100 prize fund is typically paid by the loser in the bet between the FantasyYIRMA admin team.
To take £100 off your mate in a bet is fun- to make him sponsor the league for an entire season …is funnier.
There are many options now for fantasy football and they all have their own merits.
For us though.. FantasyYIRMA have always used
The Official Fantasy game of the Premier League.
Great site – with a great team behind it.
I think it’s fair to say, that if you had told me FantasyYIRMA.com would still be running almost 3 years after it started I would have chuckled immensely… but it has… we have… and as both the twitter (@FantasyYIRMA ) account and website have continued to grow, it genuinely is a pleasure to be involved in the ridiculously brilliant world of Fantasy Football.
The interaction online from #FPL fans across the world has been fantastic! Our goal now is the same as it was from day one – to try and provide interesting and quality insight and to help create as much interaction around the game as possible. Simply watching the evolution of the game over the past few years as the level of interest continues to grow has been fascinating.
Best of Luck to everyone for the 2015/16 season from us at FY!
