Of course, it is time for the second annual History Podcasting Fantasy Football Championship of the World! Should you wish to join in on the fun you can create an account at, create your team, then click join league, private league, and enter 2361358-512044 for the league code. I had an awful season last time, but if you think you can beat my starting XI of Howard, Bruce, Chambers, Baines, Snodgrass, Henderson, Yaya Toure, Ramsey, Lamela, Jovetic and Sturridge then you know what to do!
