Yesterday was the first day of the new season of English Premier League and I have looked foward for it for the past weeks. This was mainly because for the second time in my life, I joined fantasy premier league. The first time I joined was if I’m not mistaken in 2003 or 2004. That was only for one season. After that I stopped. I felt the pressure of managing my own team… haha… Well actually, it was the paradoxical feeling of having to support some players from team I dislike.  Then, I cannot purely enjoy the football because I always keep remembering who the players I selected for my team and how do they perform.

After 5 or 6 years, now, I’m back, managing a team with a budget of only 100 million pound sterling. That’s a decent amount to spent for a reasonable average team. I have no experience as a manager neither do managing a league.

Since, I started the LigaPowerRanger1011 last week, I have 20 managers, 20 teams in it. That is really amazing. Some of them I know some I don’t know. That’s fine. We are in just for fun and excitement. For those who I don’t know and if you are reading this entry, I hope you can introduce yourself. It’s better if we know who we are battling, don’t you think so?

So, how do my team perform yesterday?

As a new promoted manager who is still lacking of managerial experience, I can’t really answer that question yet. This is because there are still few more teams that have not played. With Arsenal and Liverpool facing each other tonight, and Manchester United and Newcastle United meeting for the first time after the Toons was relegated previous season, there are still much of action to anticipate.

OK, if you want to know my points, I have only collected just 19 points and I’m in the 18th position in my own league. My overall rank in the world is 1,473,812 from  1,789,752 teams. But that is not yet the final number. There are still matches and I have players in those matches. I’m expecting my points to improve.

Why the hell I’m playing this fantasy football game if I have lots of work?

Simple answer… I need to enjoy too. I want to see how well I could perform as a manager. Will that be a new career that I’ll look for a career switch?

Not at all!!!

OK, that’s it for now. I hope those of you are not at all a football fan can bare with me on this musing of mine.

After a very confident FA cup victory over the Gunners (4-0), a superb triumph Premier League battle over Fulham (3-0) and an immaculate Champions League result over Lyon (1-0), I humbly think Manchester United can snatch another treble this season. I don’t want to be arrogant or put off the other teams, but just check out the Red Devils in depth squad. It’s a big team having the highest talent and unbelievable spirit. So, what will the supporters of Arsenal, Chelsea …. and…. Liverpool have to say on this? Do you agree with me?
