We’re cleaning up here at Tosh Towers, but not in the financial sense. Following the fine seasonal rains of mid August here in south London, our basement continues its ongoing campaign to become a swimming pool rather than warm, dry hospitable place for us to store junk and our gas boiler.
So it’s with some enthusiasm that I’m trying to ignore the sound of rushing water – the workmen are pumping hundreds of gallons out right now – to make final adjustments to my Cristal Palace side, ahead of the start of the new Premier League season tomorrow.
And this, gentle reader, is your final chance to join the Completetosh.com fantasy league – the League of Scoundrels – which already has a rather staggering 18 teams, managed by readers from around the world. The deadline is midday tomorrow, Saturday, if you want to submit your team for the first round of matches. You can join later, of course, but by that point 17 sides will be rocketing ahead while I – going on current luck – will be exploring the game’s capacity to do minus numbers.
To sign up: first go to Fantasy Football, pick your team and save it. Then click on Friends’ Leagues. You’ll need to enter the league name: League of Scoundrels. And the password: Completetosh.
I look forward to seeing you there. Right after I’ve had a chat with a man who’s carrying a very big pump through my house.
