Got time on my hands so I thought I'd start this thread early. It's better than the usual arrangement where someone remembers about it the day after Boxing Day.

 

I scored big with Bracknell last year but there's no dice where 1960s rock stars are concerned. How is Keith Richards still going? Charlie Watts has been 90 years old since I was at school. Maybe coke and booze and smack and LSD and underage groupies are good for you.

 

I think this year I'm going with the Davies bothers and Mick Avory from The Kinks; Wyman, Richards and Jagger; whoever rudemedic picks for captain; and anyone who's got a Wikipedia page that tells me they're about to go.

 

Has anything happened at the football club since I was last on here?

And I get criticised for putting up the Christmas decorations in November. Fucking hell. 

Fine. Usual rules:

-each player picks 10 celebrities

-score=100-age at death

-double points if your captain dies

-no under 18s

-teams to be posted by 00:00 1.1.19

-bonus 25 points to whoever guesses the closest date to the departure of Her Majesty the Duke Of Lancaster. 

@Stevie_J can you lock this on New Year's day? Donation on way for your trouble. 

Good luck.
