24/10/2016 - Congratulations to our Managers of the Month
Congratulations to our Managers of the Month for August and September August: Richard McLeod (R K Harrison) September: Andy Passey (KGJ Insurance Brokers) Game of Thrones Welcome (or indeed welcome back) to season six of the Plum Premier League (PPL). It's not that I want to make the PPL sound like an American TV drama series but I would argue the comparison is a good one given the countless twists and turns in an average week of the Premier League let alone a whole season. Indeed I often experience the multitude of emotions experienced by the colourful characters in GoT in just 90 minutes of watching Spurs play - hope, fear, joy, anguish, delight, depression, wonder, despair and then, luckily, (at the moment at least) more often than not elation at the final whistle. A big thank you to everyone for taking the time to enter a team! Let the game(s) begin in the battle to be crowned our PPL Manager of the Year in May 2017! Who dares to dream? For me, a new season is like winter turning into spring. The cold and dark of the close season disappears, (and the failure of the England national team becomes a distant memory) to be replaced by new hopes, new expectations and for fans of all teams the chance to believe that glory will at last be theirs. Even fans of minnows like Manchester United and Chelsea can dare to dream at this time of the season - albeit just for a week or two - that their extravagant spending sprees will somehow yield results this year. The Premiership is called the best league in the world and no wonder as every season one thing is guaranteed. Expect the unexpected. Will we ever see the likes of another Leicester City again I wonder. It's unlikely I know but please don't knock fans of similar clubs to them such as Arsenal, Burnley or Everton - for hoping that this could be their year at long last. Sadly, I dare say it will be the big boys that top the league again this season but don't rule out Liverpool just yet either. And to really stretch a point, who knows' but perhaps even a Manchester City or Hull can shock world football and top the league come May 2017. I know one thing, it's going to be fun watching events unfold over the coming months. The game needs a goal There will again be prizes for our top three supremo's at the end of the season. It goes without saying (but for legal reasons I do have to say) that the winner will be the manager of the team that accumulates the highest points total at the end of the season. Points are allocated using the Classic scoring method on the Premier League Fantasy Football website. For details of the prize breakdown click the link on the title. Good luck for the rest of the season! Steve Steven Bishop (Head of Business Development)
