Many reading will have had a team that have fought it out for points week-on-week, with players such as Bournemouth’s Charlie Daniels and Swansea’s Fernando Llorente becoming cult heroes after stellar seasons.

Indeed, You may very well have stopped checking your account 5 or 6 weeks in, but your team is still there (perhaps with Moussa Sissoko or Claudio Bravo still captain – not the best choices).

Every manager has the player’s they’ll pick each season: the attacking defender’s like Kyle Walker or Seamus Coleman; the midfielders who are indecipherable from strikers like Alexis Sanchez or and Sadio Mane; and perhaps the most important players of all, the out and out forwards that will score you the most points, such as harry Kane and Zlatan Ibrahimović.

But there’ll also be a whole new crop of player’s that will be vying to become Fantasy Football cult heroes (whether they realise it or not).



It’s never too early to begin thinking of what your fantasy football line-up is going to look like come the beginning of the season. When a proven goal scorer like Antoine Griezmann is linked to Manchester United or a tricky winger like Bernardo Silva signs for Manchester City, it’s enough to excite any would-be Conté’s and Pochettino’s about their new season line-ups.

And with every great team, must come a great team name – something that helps you stand out from the crowd; to make you at the very least the wittiest manager in your league, if not the best.
When the first day of the new season comes around, you’re going to want to have the best possible name for your side – and the possibilities are limitless.

The most important thing is that it’s hilarious.
