This season The Fantasist is pitting its wits
against the people in its new Fantasy Superleague.
SIGN UP FOR FANTASY FOOTBALL and join the league and play against the
Fantasist and other posters on the blog:
A massive 900 managers have already taken up the challenge, and just one league has places remaining:
Please note: Due to the limit of five leagues per user, The Fantasist's team is not in Superleagues 6 to 10, but members of that group will be included in the overall competition - with an as-yet-undetermined prize for the winner!

although it will not finalise its selection until Saturday's noon deadline:

Never mind their Community Shield woe, Chelsea have by far the easiest game of
the top teams, at home to West Brom. A quartet of Blues is complemented by a
smattering of new players - we'll have to see as the week progresses which of
these will start on the opening weekend.
And this is how the Fantasist blog will be
shaping up this season:
Tuesday: Matchday review - The Fantasist looks
back on the weekend's action, charting the fortunes of its team.
