    Fantasy World Cup

    Fifa are running a game and it looks reasonably good and free:

    McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy

    League code is 186272-44562

    Can't pick players for a week or so (when final 23 man squads are announced)
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Probably have a go.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Have just selected my team. The 140 point cap is actually quite generous, as long as you have some North Korean filler in your squad.

    Indeed. Starting XI looks amazing.

    My defence is crap, but it plays against teams even more crappy in the first round so hopefully will bag clean sheets.

    Midfield and attack are World Cup winning.

    Buffon, Lahm, Mertesacker, Lucio, Van der Vaart, Kaka, Lampard, Ribery, Xavi, Messi, Rooney.

    Carvalho, Vidic, Gattuso, Malouda, Altidore, Santa Cruz the genuine non filler bench options.

    Casillas, Lahm, Chiellini, Samuel, De Rossi, Sneijder, Kaka, Lampard, Rooney, Fabiano, Villa.
    Evra, Mertersacker, Sagna, Nani on the bench.

    Liable to change. Especially when I have 3 genuine decent defensive options on the bench but no reserve striker hmm.

    See pic. You might spot a theme with the goalkeepers. The Beloved Leader will not be amused.
