Sorry Emma, don't know your Mefi handle or I'd email you directly, but congratulations on topping the Metafilter MeFight Fantasy FPL league!

Ungh. This season! It just goes to show what a job you actually give a shit about can do to your fantasy score.

It does say "League tables are currently being re-calculated. The table below may still contain old data." at the top of the table. I believe there is a good chance TSV 1976 Röck Steady will be awarded 305 bonus points, which, now that I check, coincidentally looks like it would be just enough to give me the title.

This was actually a lot of fun. Waking up a little early on Saturdays to watch the EPL on NBC Sports became a fun little tradition for me. Didn't hurt that my newly adopted club (Liverpool) had a thrilling season, even though they managed to cack it up quite thoroughly at the end there.

Congrats!



(Is there a congratulatory equivalent to leaving just a . as a moment of silence??)

Haha that's me, many thanks. It's not a marketable skill, unfortunately, and my husband thinks I'm mad tapping out all those transfers, but hey - I don't win much so I'll take it!

Mourinho here, come to your talk in your website. People say to me: Hey Jose, is this English Premier League something I'd need an Abu Dhabi billionaire to buy? I say: yes, is very sad - Abu Dhabi billionaire can now buy the league. No more can a Russian billionaire and American billionaire compete. I feel sad for English Premier League when the wrong billionaire can buy, buy, buy everything. That is why I left Real Madrid, because I do not need money. I need love, and money can't buy me love, as your billionaire Paul McCartney sings. But Man City, they have no love, they have no Paul McCartney - they have Liam and Noel Gallagher, who do not love one another. That is why Oasis split, and that is why Chelsea can win next year and love will triumph over money. So do not look at EPL table, which is a fake table - look at the love table where I have won the love-league because you love me, billionaires love me, and I love me. And this is the greatest love of all.

Any chance we could pass the Mefi hat and buy Aston Villa? Only 200 mil!

Quidnunc Mourinho might be my favorite thing about MeFi.

We'd have to figure some way around the "No Active Kickstarters on the front page" rule, but given the numbers they are tossing around for the LA Clippers, 200M seems like a bargain.

I would like to own Aston Villa more than I would like to own any NBA team at all.

That said: I went and saw them play last year, and I don't want to own Aston Villa.

Villa won't cost 200mil, shurely.

Maybe Geezer Butler will chip in.
