Other movers and shakers include Mike Gilmour’s AFC Gilmour jumping from 8th place to third, and Paul Leonard’s Sprintspurs moving from 20th to 15th. Also, following last week’s mention, Phil Lancake’s Phones 4 United have dropped 14 places from joint 9th to 23rd.
So, with nothing exciting happening in the table, we step outside the box and look at the table… albeit the names not the scores.
Team names range from the confused; David Louis’s "Webb Ellis Triers" (Webb Ellis make rugby balls), to the naive; Chris H’s "I believe in Angels" and everything in between.
Stuart Connellan suffers from wishful thinking with his team "And the Winner is" and Geoff Coe’s "Eximedia Exocets" have been shooting up the table like a dud.
Greg Wallace has tried to show off his footballing knowledge by naming his team "Gamst Left Boot", a reference to Morten Gamst Pedersen, the Norweigan international who plays for Blackburn and also has popstar pretensions following his single release ‘This is for Real’ (maybe he dreams of one day being a Galactico).
We also have some famous contenders for the Mobile Business fantasy football trophy.
Sara Cox of Radio 1 fame currently sits in 31st with her team "The Girlie Show" a reference to the Friday night television programme that soared the bum-chinned blonde into the limelight.
"Nemesis Chancers" is managed by ex-England coach Terry Venables. The Webmonkeys are finally justified in shouting that they could do better at the TV as good old Tel only sits in 7th position.
You fantasy football fans are also a little bit rude. Ben Taylor’s "Felching Flouncers" brings very odd visions to the mind, and caused us to reach for a copy of Bambi to put the image out of our heads.
Best of all has to be Alison Burke’s choice of team name. She had obviously had a few too many Lambrinis and came up with "orange u glad im bum". Other than the fact it doesn’t make any grammatical sense, she also seems to have lost all ability to use punctuation and capital letters. So Alison, tell us what you’re going on about and comment below (leave the cheap fizz in the fridge though).
