Movin’ On Up

After a strong performance last week, Ruining Football need to follow it up to keep moving back up the Fantasy Football standings. As predicted last week, the scores for Gameweek 31 were big, with a lot of teams breaking the 100 point mark. We had to settle for 96 after four or five below average […]

Wayne Rooney’s stunning double gameweek was the main factor behind Ruining Football’s move into the top 10,000 for the first time this season. The Manchester United striker was in sublime form with five goals in just two games, and if you didn’t have him as captain then you would have been watching on with envy […]

Concentrating on the league

Concentrating on the league

Dumped out of the Fantasy Cup at the second hurdle, Ruining Football now just have the league to focus on with a double gameweek meaning there are big points up for grabs. The Fantasy Cup is essentially a lottery. That might sound like the bitter musings of someone who just lost to a team 1.5 […]
