    Interesting to hear age of posters.

    35 myself, the mrs and I expecting first baby in new year so not sure how FF will go this year!

    How did ye all end up working for bookies in sunnier climes? Sounds all sexy and glamourous:) an image of James Bond in a Casino in Monaco comes to mind for some reason!

    Congrats, have the one kid myself. The only positive for your FF prospects I can think of is you will definetly have more hours awake which you could potentially use to be thinking of FF. Think 3 in the morning bottle feeds while debating whether you should start brady or barkley.

    Plus hours of fun while you're watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Fireman Sam.

    Gives you plenty of time to let your thoughts drift to FF.

    I have a 3 year old, five month old, 3 cats, a Norwegian Elkhound and, at present, 10 Labradors!

    Anybody care to recommend a brilliant sports book for me, I'm currently trying to fill a couple of shelves to complete my library, after that I can weed out the rubbish, when I die I would like for there to be a custody battle for my sports library. I'm currently reading a fascinating book about cycling in Rwanda, doesn't sound like the most obvious subject for a book but it's by the former editor and feature writer for the Observer Sports Monthly, anyone who remembers that publication will know of it's quality.

    Not entirely a sports book but Id highly recommend Bounce by Matt Syed.

    Speaking of bets, had this thread been started earlier I could have dropped a hint about a decent long term bet I have - Belgium to win the 2014 World Cup @100/1. Currently at 33's and will drop lower. I don't think they'll win it but should do well. I should be able to lay off for a decent profit.

    Mirallas just set up Lukaku in the Everton game which reminded me how the Belgians are taking over the PL the last two years. In addition to the other two we have Kompany, Vermaelen, Vertonghen, Mignolet, Benteke, Hazard, De Bruyne, Fellaini, Dembele and Chadli. Any one of them would walk into our national team.

    Don't want to take the OT thread off topic but in terms of betting they are one to watch!

    30, haven't watched single episode of Breaking Bad, love cheese, one sprog and the oven is on for another.

    Loving the FSA forum, tried the soccer forum for a while but found it more stressful that minding a child.
    Football career cut short due to a bad dose of golf. You'll find me over there mainly.

    Golf and Fantasy Football, pretty much my life since becoming a parent.
    That is not a complaint :)

    Really love cheese.

    Really regret using my password as my username too

    Yeah I've seen you over in the golf alright, I've become quite a fan since the ryder cup in 2006, only 15/16 then bless my cotton socks :pac: Usually have a flutter in the majors and broke even for the season with Dufner in the US PGA, Stenson e/w too :)

    Would love to pick it up in the future as the only golf I'v ever played is of the crazy variety

    I think we have a grand oul bunch on FSA.

    Anyone seen total fpl chat or FISO? My god such hate and trolling, I will stick to here, much better posts too:)

    FutureGuy + co do a great job modding, fair play!

    I would put up a pic of Bale heart celebration, but I am on my phone over lunch:)

    Am i the only one who hit the big 4-0? :eek::(

    Married, one (very) young kid. Health warning: having kids will seriously damage your FF (and fantasy baseball and fantasy american football) prospects.:p

    Only just started watching Breaking Bad. Hope its as good as advertised, I need a 'Wire' replacement.

    HATE Cheese....Except on Pizza :pac:

    Yeah we have no tolerance for that stuff on here. I'm monitoring for fake team line-ups, false goal shouts and anything else trollish.

    Even if you do it by accident (post a false starting XI because you picked it off Twitte), I'll be making sue that the poster knows to double check their source the next time.

    It only taks a few bad apples, but I have a lovely ban hammer itching to be used :D

    I've never seen an episode of Breaking Bad but will have to watch it. That said, I was told there's 60 to 70 episodes so it'll take a while. Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire are my two staple diets generally.

    I watched Lost in the past (gave up around series 4 or 5 but then picked it up on box set and watched to the end) and, of course, The Sopranos.

    Love/Hate isn't bad either for an RTE production.

    On a sidenote, chocolate hob nobs are fantastic.
