The Fantasy Cheaters League is a purely for fun endeavour. It's been created by the advertising agency Host and doggedly pursued by a bunch of dreamers there who love the beautiful game and look forward to the Tournament like a kid looks forward to getting a new replica kit at Christmas.
Like all football fans we harboured dreams of representing our country at football, but only succeeded in reaching the dizzy heights of playing for our school or Sunday League team. But we love the beautiful game. In all its guises; the skill, goals, athleticism, rivalry, trivia...and the dirty, conniving cheating!
Because if we're honest with ourselves, it's the diving, injury feigning, yard stealing, time wasting gamesmanship as much as anything else that makes every tournament exciting, controversial and memorable.
So we've decided to celebrate this side of the game by creating The Fantasy Cheaters League. Because even though we only managed to play on football's lowest rung, we've tasted victory. We know the primitive competitive instinct it gives rise to. We've felt the injustices and dare we admit it, indulged in some of it ourselves!

(quite a funny read)
I think this is hilarious and will be joining. I think I'll probably do better at this than the actual FF for the World Cup. Are you joining and if so, who's making your 11?
