"Fantasy Football - How to win The Sun's Dream Team" is an essential guide to turning your side into title chasers. Playing fantasy football can be fun, but it can also be very rewarding if you do your homework. The Sun's Dream Team is the biggest in Britain, boasting more than half a million teams and a massive GBP 300,000 prize fund, with GBP 125,000 going to the winner. Over the years, it has literally changed people's lives and its incredible success means there are a host of other fantasy football games out there - many also carrying substantial rewards - which makes this pastime not only fun but also potentially very lucrative. "Fantasy Football" takes an in-depth look at the secrets to success both for the rookie manager and the more experienced fantasy gamer looking to boost his or her bank balance. It interviews previous winners, breaks their sides down and extracts their keys to victory. Who have been the biggest point-scoring Premiership stars in fantasy football over the past five years? How do you find a bargain-basement player that separates you from the pack? Should you spend big on strikers or is it defence that wins titles? Where do you go for the crucial information to pick a team packed with champions? All these questions and much more are answered in "Fantasy Football", an in-depth guide on how transforming your fantasy team into Chelsea from Chelmsford and Manchester United from Morecambe.

About the author

Richard Neale has picked up literally hundreds of fantasy football tips during six years as Deputy Sports Editor at The Sun Online. He wrote most of the player biographies to be found on The Sun's award-winning fantasy football website,, as well as having significant input into the Premiership player lists and those at two World Cups, Euro 2004, the Ashes and cricket and rugby World Cups. A lifelong sports fan and lover of fantasy football games, and possessing a healthy obsession for sporting statistics, he has been playing The Sun's incredibly popular Dream Team game since its inception in 1994 and has also tried and tested most of its major rivals. Now a freelance writer, he lives in Lewes, East Sussex and in his spare time plays golf (very poorly) and cricket (just poorly) with a group of Sussex journalist colleagues in a team called the Headliners.
