@eurocelticyankee,
Bournemouth? Really? They’re three points behind Watford and Villa. Most have written them off.

It could be wishful thinking on my part because I really don’t want to see Bournemouth supporters in town next season.

@eurocelticyankee,
For a long time I was unaware of Bournemouth then I taught a kid who supported them.

It was then I found out they really hated us.

God knows why.

I know there is local rivalry but is doesn’t have to turn into outright hostility.

When Reading was in the premiership we never had problems with their supporters, or Yeovil in the FA cup, they were fine too.

Bournemouth, Brighton and Portsmouth are bloody awful.

@eurocelticyankee,
Congrats to The Unforgiven, Midnight Riders and Wee Lads on your victories. Envy is a deadly sin apparently, so I'll just to have to satisfy myself with thoughts of murderous revenge.

Thanks for everything, Euro. Amusing and informative round-ups added to the enjoyment of the competition. I hope everyone is still safe and remain so. Cheers!

Thanks guys for participating.

As they say in my neck of the woods, ''It was a bit of craic''.

I hope to see you all next season and hopefully we might get another one or two or ten to join us.

So Imur, McG, George and even Tico thanks again.

Homicidal Imur, don't worry I'm sure there's a trophy somewhere waiting to put your name on it.
Consistent player McG my friend you are and always will be welcome.
George slow starter but very strong finisher, the ladies must love you.

Go raibh maith agat buachaillí.

The winner of this year's Fantasy Premier League competition - an online game entered by more than seven million players - has been disqualified over comments believed to be about Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling.

Aleksandar Antonov, from Bulgaria, topped the scoring charts at the end of this season with 2,575pts but was stripped of his expected title following "end-of-season checks".
In a YouTube video, Mr Antonov described how comments he made "several months ago" to around five friends on Facebook Messenger had been sent to the Premier League.

It is understood the allegedly racist comments were about City and England forward Sterling.

"The reason for my disqualification is a moment of frustration with a player, put into words, written between friends," Mr Antonov said.
"What we write with my friends in our chat is football banter, I'm sure it's not that different from your football banter chats."

In a further explanation, made in a series of Twitter posts, Mr Antonov admitted he had made a "mean comment worthy of disqualification" and deserves his "punishment".

"It is hard to explain to English speaking people why I never meant it to be a racist comment," he said.

"The word 'n****' in Bulgarian does not have nearly the same connotation as the n-word in English.

"I have never used the n-word to anyone English-speaking or of black color in Bulgaria.

"I have never intend [sic] to cause any racial harm to anyone, EPL players included, and up to now I have never done so.

"It may sound stupid, but I actually really don't condone racist behavior and this is not just for black people but all other races, from which I have had many friends especially when living in the UK.

"I do have to apologize to anyone that has taken as an offense against them or their friends on racial basis. I understand why this is."

Mr Antonov added he had been "taught a harsh lesson" and expressed his hope that others would learn from the incident.

Following Mr Antonov's disqualification, Joshua Bell a cancer researcher at Oxford University has now been confirmed as the winner of the 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League, which was entered by a total of more than 7.6 million players.

His prize includes a seven-night break in the UK including VIP hospitality at two of next season's Premier League matches.

@eurocelticyankee,
Bulgaria had to play qualifying matches behind closed doors for racist abuse against England players back in October so it seems part of a pattern.

I know and did you ever hear such crap.

You'll be pleased to know that the new winner picked Southampton to follow in the game.


But only because Ipswich weren't available to pick. He he.

The Bulgarian word for black is chern0.

How in the world did the n-word, a specifically English term, come into the Bulgarian lexicon without its disparaging meaning?

@eurocelticyankee,
Yeah, the response last time was underwhelming.
Besides lmur and McG, I can't think of anyone else.
