5 Unusual Fantasy Football XIs You Won't See Everyday

If you are one of the few football fans who have become jaded with the idea of picking and managing a fantasy football team, then why not spice up your experience by trying a themed team, or something out of the ordinary.

We at balls.ie are certainly not one of those who have lost interest, but that didn't stop us putting together five themed squads in Premier League fantasy football. Have a look at the results.

The 'New Signings' Squad

Without a doubt the strongest of these squads, the 'New Signings' team features a number of big players like Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa, and it will be interesting to see how competitive a manager could be with this squad.

The 'Bargain Bin' Squad


Comprised solely of players under 5.0m in price, this cut-price squad is an extreme challenge for anyone looking to prove their worth as a hardcore fantasy manager.

The 'Veteran' Squad


A team filled with the oldest possible players in the Premier League won't win you any private leagues, but it would be good for a laugh, especially if you can knock someone out of the cup with it.

The 'Young Guns' Squad

What would have been the U-21 squad if both keepers weren't 22 (the youngest available), this team features the best young players in the league and would be very fun to manage, with the opportunity to include any break out young stars along the way.


The 'Most Booked' Squad

This is essentially fantasy football on the hardest difficulty level, as this squad is made up of the most booked players from last season in each position. Good luck with that!
