LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 35

Congratulations to Mark Finney, whose Aston Villarreal (2,091 points) continue to lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 35, just ahead of Mark Widdop’s Midtable Obscurity (2,078) and Scott Goodbrand’s Grass Bandits (2,065). Just three weeks remain…

But let’s also hear it for three players outside the top 10: Joe Sales’ Prestige Worldwide has had the best month’s performance so far. Honourable mentions go to Paul Noblet’s Fisher FC and Judith Dickinson’s Willy Fogg’s X1.

ldv 35

  • I wonder if you would indulge me as a long suffering fan of Huddersfield Town (“We won the League three times, We won the FA Cup” goes the chant) ? May I be allowed to make a gentle moderate comment about the Arsenal Fans who today were demonstrating against their manager of twenty years, Arsene Wenger.

    Monsieur Wenger’s record in finishing no lower than in 4th position in the Premier League EVERY season over the last twenty years, three title wins and six FA Cup wins.

    The ‘fans’ of Arsenal should be told politely to look in the mirror, be thankful for what they have got instead of being so self indulgent.

    PS Darlington (4-1 conquerors of Chelsea in the FA Cup in 1958) won the Evo Stik Northern Premier League title last Thursday to the great joy of the citizens of Darlo – who are having a lot more fun than the prawn sandwichers of the Emirates. In such things do we rejoice !! Darlington 4 – Chelsea 1 – YouTube

    PS Sincere best wishes to Chris Foote-Wood (a County Durham Lib Dem stalwart for over fifty years) on the recent very sad loss of his wonderfully talented sister, Victoria . Very much thinking about you, Chris.. ……..

    Wkikpedia states that Jeremy Corbyn “supports Arsenal F.C., based in his constituency, and has signed parliamentary motions praising the successes of the club’s men’s and women’s teams.”
    “He named Jens Lehmann, Ian Wright and Dennis Bergkamp as his favourite Arsenal players, and has campaigned for the club to pay its staff a living wage.”
    Arsenal’s finances are reputedly sound.
    A Liverpool fan has said that if Liverpool win the Europa League this year they will qualify for a Champions League place next year, displacing whoever comes fourth in the Premier League in England this year.
    Depending on the results of games in hand that is currently arsenal or Manchester City.

    In all of the years that I have delivered Focus there has been exactly one time when the door opened, the resident rushed out and shouted “Oi, you! Can I have another copy of this Focus?”.

    The location was Caledonian Ward in Islington (where my husband was a councillor) and the front of the Focus showed Steve Hitchins and Arsene Wenger standing in front of a scale model of what would later be named the Emirates Stadium, for which the Lib Dem council has just given planning permission.

    Never underestimate the importance of football in politics!

    An Italian manages Leicester, an Argentinian at Tottenham, a German at Liverpool, a Chilean at Man City, a Frenchman at Arsenal, a Dutchman at Man U.
    What are the consequences for the referendum on 23 June 2016?
    What are the consequences for the Euros this summer?

  • More important than any of that, a German manages the mighty Huddersfield Town…. who won the League three times and the FA Cup (when Asquith was still around !!)…

    but… it’s only three years since we beat them 2-1 at the Kingpower, and like the Lib Dems we soldier on and live to fight another day.

    There will be a bye-election following the London Mayoral election. Who will Labour nominate? Ed Balls is chairman of Norwich City.

    1) Who is the first Englishman to score 10,000 runs in test matches?
    2) Who is the youngest man to score 10,000 runs in test matches?

  • @ Richard Underhill

    1. Mr Cook

    2. If you’re patient it will be the mighty Yorkie Joe Root.
