THE Pikey Scum manager has talked of his ‘utter relief’ at being knocked from the top of the Kenna League table just short of 12 months up there.
Young Boys assumed pole position this week ending a Pikey Scum run which started on 7 October 2017 – game week seven of last season.
The Scum boss first aired his concerns upon winning the Dmitri Kharine World Cup in July.
“I’ve got to be honest, it was starting to get embarrassing,” said the Scum boss from his New York home.
“While the rest of the league were physically at the auction, responding to dynamics of the event I was picking up the odd player through silent bids and patchy Whatsapp messages. How do you think I ended up signing Mitrovic?
“How everyone else continually failed to beat someone bidding from 2,000 miles away is really beyond me. Although saying that, I hardly won anything when I actually attended auctions.”
Kenna HQ has dismissed concerns the choice of holding auctions in the pub leads to reduced decision-making capabilities in managers present.
“Kenna managers are dedicated to the league and not easily distracted from the seamier diversions of London life,” said the Kenna chairman in a press conference this lunchtime called outside The Holborn Whippet.
“This is the world’s leading London pub-based fantasy football league and we take that title very seriously. It’s not like we’re all abusing alcohol or getting high.”
