The practice round of the SCMP fantasy football game has now started and you have until September 9 to hone your skills before the competition proper begins. The 'who's hot and who's not' list (far right) shows your fellow managers are selecting and sacking from their teams. If you fancy yourself as the next Jose Mourinho don't miss your chance to join this exciting game. You will have a budget of GBP100 million to spend on 11 players and a manager to complete your ultimate fantasy team from the cream of the Premiership, and you will be allowed to make five transfers a month. Apart from the fun of playing there are prizes too, including a trip for two to the UK to watch a key Premiership match, with flights courtesy of Cathay Pacific and four nights accommodation in a four-star hotel. To play all you need to do is register at, where you will be able to build your ultimate fantasy team for as little as $88.
