Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp group messages.

Light the beacons and get the codes in.

3. Got annoyed over the three players from one team limit.

5. Fed a mate lies on team selection.

"It's Spurs at home, of *course* you should start Danny Rose..."

6. Had a brilliant week, but not moved one position in the leagues.

Oh, so you all had Costa as your captain? Brilliant…

7. Or worse, had a brilliant week and somehow ended up falling *down* in the league rankings

"WTF? I had Costa as captain too! How'd you pull that off?"

8. Been torn between the team you support, and a team you've selected players from.

Raining in fantasy points. Who says it's just a game?

Same again next week?
