Sign up now for the next Fantasy Football Scout Charity Cup

As the curtain sets on another exciting season of domestic league action, we are spoiled here in England by the prospect of guaranteed success in both the Europa League and the Champions League and possibly even international glory in the Nations League.

As if that wasn’t enough (and, for many of us, it won’t be), Fantasy Football Scout is delighted to confirm that the third instalment of its Charity Cup will take place on Sunday 28th July 2019, provisionally during the afternoon at Market Road Football Pitches in Islington, London.

The first two competitions proved extremely popular back in February and November 2018, with around 80 players across nine different teams competing to lift the illustrious FFS Charity Cup and, more importantly, raising around £2,000 for the Melanoma Research Foundation and for Campaign Against Living Miserably.

We’ll be raising money for the Stroke Association this year and donations can be made by clicking here.

For those who aren’t aware, this is real-life football with players of all ages, fitness and abilities very welcome. As with previous tournaments, we’ll be organising players into squads, so you don’t need to round up a team yourself, although feel free to invite guest players to boost the numbers.

The precise format (including squad sizes) will depend on numbers but you can rest assured that everyone will get decent game-time before we head to a local pub to talk everyone through our best goals (or, in my case, penalty misses).

All you need to do is email peter.kouwenberg76@gmail.com as soon as possible to confirm your interest and provide your contact details, at which point you’ll be added to the relevant WhatsApp group, unless you warn me in your email that you would prefer to be kept informed by email or text only instead (outside the group).

    It always pains me to see all the empty seats in the corporate section. If the back scratchers and towel flickers can't be bothered to turn up they shouldn't get tickets.

    Can’t believe Sterling nicked that goal! I’ve got a bet on Jesus to score 🙁

      G - Sterling

    Can we get banned on FSS for rotating our genitals in celebration during the charity cup ?

    Or is it a separate incident ?

        No dogs in this race except the continued sporting competitiveness of football which is slowly dying in front of our eyes

        1. Marvinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          29 days, 3 hours ago

          Yeah I have to say I agree with you. When teams can be owned by a country things have got out of hand.

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

          Did we not recently have a 5000-1 shot win the league? Spurs are in a champions league final despite not spending a penny in about 3 years...

          Football (and english football in particular) was way less competitive 15 years ago when utd & arsenal had a monopoly on the league

          1. Sif
            • 6 Years
            29 days, 3 hours ago

            - Bookies have since made odds less silly. It wasn't a 5000-1
            - Spurs have spent £180m and sold about £120 in last 3 years. That's more than a penny, also just plowed 1billion into a stadium.
            - Arsenal & Man did not control the league and cups like City can enough world class players to have two starting XI
            There's plenty of articles around about the wealth gap by far more eloquent people than me.

            Not having a go but it becoming to big a gap not to notice now. Sucks the enjoyment out of it

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 9 Years
              29 days, 3 hours ago

              - It was a 5000-1 in the sense that you could (and people did) get 5000-1 on it
              - Spurs net spend is tiny and they are in a champions league final is the point (i.e. not man city who have spent massively)
              - Arsenal & utd shared 14 of 17 premier league titles between 1992/93 & 2008/09 - a ridiculous level of uncompetitiveness
              - City have just managed 2 in a row - fairly insignificant when you compare it to man utd's dominance in prior decades, and liverpool's dominance in decades prior to that

              Are City a financially doped team? Unquestionably
              Is Football any less competitive in recent years than prior decades? imo no - it's actually more competitive when you compare it to the dominance man utd & liverpool enjoyed

    Emirates have assured Arsenal that the FA cup will be returned to the club at the end of next season. Some sort of mix up this year and they apparently 'Choose Etihad'

    This is getting embarrassing now for Watford.

    City (and to some extent Liverpool) are far too good for the rest of the Premier league and I can’t see it being any more competitive next year.
