I’m not sure if you remember, but way, way, way back in August of last year, I started up a competition to win a free shit from the WSOTP Shop for whatever one of you could manage to win an EPL fantasy league organized by your’s truly. And despite the winner’s protests, I haven’t forgotten about it at all. That’s not the case at all: I’ve just been busy.
All told, fifty-nine teams were entered into the league alongside the official WSOTP XI side. And while you would think my position as an “expert” “soccer journalist” should have given me a leg up in the competition, it most definitely didn’t. I finished in 39th spot, 520 points behind the league winner; not quite in the relegation zone, but definitely not even mid-table. Embarrassing, though I admittedly didn’t pay it much attention to it so I could run this site and all. Excuses, right? Anyway, if you’re interested in having a look at the full table, you can do so here.
So, who ended up lifting the hypothetical WSOTP Premieraliga trophy after all?
Lippadonna***** — a long time friend and teammate of WSOTP — was the runaway winner. Not only did he amass an enormous lead over my own team, but he also managed a nearly 80 point lead over the second place finisher of ★★ Red_Devils ★★. And for that reason, he’s a very fitting winner of a free shirt of his choosing from the WSOTP Shop. Being the diligent man that he is, good old Lippadonna has already made his selection, choosing to promote the site by going with a black version of the WSOTP Logo Tee.
For those of you who didn’t win, thanks so much for participating! This will absolutely be a competition we’ll be running again next Premier League season. In the mean time, be sure to take advantage of the sales going on for our new “Going to Brazil” line of shirts ahead of the Wolrd Cup!
