The 11Kicks House Team finished bottom of its Gold Level mini-league for game week 28. I’ve had my best PR people working round the clock trying to put a positive spin on this. None of them had an answer. Bottom of the league is bottom of the league.
Possibly my biggest mistake was picking Vincent Kompany, who it turns out wasn’t fit because of an injury sustained against Aris last Thursday. (An injury which did not appear in any of my Google News searches on Friday afternoon, by the way). So that’s zero points right there. I also made Raul Meireles captain, which in hindsight was insanely optimistic. Should have trusted my instincts and stuck with Nani.
But bottom of the league it is. 33 points, no prize money. Congratulations to the manager of Come on Boro, who did pick Nani as captain, and so finished in first place with 59 points, thereby securing $40 prize money.
