Dream Managed Hosting Fantasy Football XI created by iomart
Tweeps unite to produce a Hosting Fantasy Football team
As the English and Scottish Premiership clubs prepare for the big kick off this weekend, fans up and down the country are rushing to finalise and enter their fantasy league teams.
Having formed their own league, the team at www.iomarthosting.com hit upon the idea of creating a Fantasy XI using players with names, no matter how tenuous, with links to the data centre and managed hosting industry. The rules were simple; using a 442 formation; players could be selected from any country and must have represented their clubs during the 2008/9 season.
Having quickly named four players, with the rather obvious colocation related choice of Kolo Toure , Manchester City’s recent £15M signing from Arsenal being the first name on the team sheet, the struggle began.
With a goalkeeper, 3 defenders, a midfielder and two forwards still to find, the team turned to Twitter and close contacts for advice, suggestions and help. Finally after two days of information ‘transfer’ activity, the All Star Fantasy Managed Hosting XI was complete.
Phil Worms, iomart Hosting Marketing Director, stated: “It really was a game of two halves. We really struggled on the first day, but after a frank team talk, and a review of our tactics, we opted for a long punt on Twitter, and that turned our fortunes around on the second day. We have to say we’re over the moon with the final result.”
Phil added: “Although we are delighted with our first team, we are always looking for new players to add depth to the managed hosting squad and would be delighted to receive further suggestions via www.twitter.com/iomarthosting ".
