    Just had to start a thread to express my undying man love for siggy
    He just always delivers

    So is there any player in particular that fantasy football has made ye develop an irrational soft spot for in real life ?
    For me I just love owning siggy. ANY excuse and I get him in :)

    Probably not my favourite, but certainly the first player that came to my mind is Matty Taylor.

    Cheap as chips defender who always scored a few from free kicks! He was eventually registered as a midfielder though which meant mean't he wasn't quite the asset any more (less points for goals scored/assists etc.)


    But as long as he was a registered defender he was in my team every time!

    Carlito Tevez. He went on an end of season scoring spree when he joined West Ham. Single handedly saved my ass that season so he did.

    Gareth Bale
    Charlie Adams
    Stevie G used to break my heart (usually didn't have him when he wracked up those bonuses)

    Without a doubt Aguero

    ....a distant second would be Bale

    My favourite is Aguero. But with the question saying 'irrational' love I'm gonna go for Wollscheid. I've had unreal luck with him. Barely a goal conceded. May be time to start up FBL.

    Jack Lynch. Nobody in FF played better in either code. :D

    Ronaldo and Bale especially when he was a defender! In the pre-fpl days Andy Cole and Shearer were an unreal pairing upfront.

    Jamie Vardy.

    Anelka. Never as your big hitter striker, but maybe as a double up with Drogba, or when Drogba was injured/playing international games.

    Michael Turner.

    The man. The myth. The legend.

    PVA perhaps has taken the crown for the two DGW 37's in a row.

    Plus the boring, obvious Aguero answer.

    Kevin Nolan always seemed to rack up points for me and made a great differeintal.can also remember van der vart contributing well to my cause. But the van persie of 3\4seasons ago will standout .

    Aguero has been a must have for me for years now.

    Suarez a close second.

    Is there any way of seeing your teams from previous years, would be nice nostalgia!

    Aguero a must have for me too and always enjoyable BUT what i mean is a player who ya just can't resist getting even when it makes no sense
    And who you now have an affinity for in real life football based purely on FF
    So that's siggy
    I think I might love him
    :D
