THE Kenna League chairman will exile some managers from next month’s fantasy football auction unless they meet certain drinking targets.
The Lokomotiv Leeds manager (pictured) says the chairman has told the league to embrace beer, shots and “heavy drinking”.
“They don’t have to be completely tanked, but I want my managers tipsy,” said the chairman of the self-proclaimed world’s leading London pub-based fantasy football league.
“Drunkenness is so important. When you are under the influence, Titus Bramble is coming. You’re not fast enough or quick enough in the head. That’s why you need to be pissed.”
The Lokomotiv Leeds manager says he is fully behind the chairman’s approach.
“For my part, it’s the first time any fantasy football chairman has really done it,” added the Yorkshireman. “And we have a few managers who are not boozing enough with the league yet.
“If your abstemiousness is too high, you’re not in the spirit of the auction. You have to know that if your blood/alcohol content is too low, then you cannot enter the auction.
“Some people think that’s normal but, in truth, it’s not always like this. I know because I’ve been in the Kenna League for a long time. It’s really crisp, cool and refreshing, and very exciting.”
The Kenna League auction is due to take place in the Hoop & Grapes pub, Farringdon Road, on Saturday 13 August.
It’s not the first time the chairman has called for compulsory boozing at auctions.
