So a few weeks ago my mum found this gem of a picture from around 17 years ago. My first fantasy football team.
I think the game was the Daily Mail around 1999 or 2000. It was a £5 entry and you entered by post.
Lampard was really young at the time. Looks like he's the only player still playing today.
Dixon, Ehiogu, Sol Campbell, Elliot (sorry Winterburn)
Berger, Beckham, Sherwood, Lampard
Andy Cole, Heskey
So how did the team do?
Looks like Heskey scored 7 goals that year in his last season at Leicester. Andy Cole got 19. These were the Yorke and Cole days. Kevin Phillips was top scorer that year with a massive 30 goals!!!
Beckham scored 6, but probably had a fair number of assists too. He also decided to shave off his hair that year. Lampard scored 7.
Manchester United won the league with 91 points. Arsenal came second, with Leeds in third! How things have changed for them. Liverpool finished a respectable fourth.
One thing that hasn't changed is Wenger still managing Arsenal!
Good luck with your team this week!
