Forging close friendships with other Fantasy managers has been instrumental in Sean Tobin’s success and enjoyment of both Fantasy Premier League and Sky Fantasy Football over the years.

Here we look back on our Meet the Manager interview with Sean, who is top of Fantasy Football Scout’s Career Hall of Fame and reached 16th spot last season.

With six top 5,000 finishes in FPL and reaching the top 50 in Sky in 2017/18, he excels across a number of formats.

However, modest Sean is still convinced he’s simply got lucky over the years.

During our 30-minute chat, Sean reveals how the counsel of fellow Fantasy managers that he has known for years has been pivotal to his strong finishes each year.

He also explains how his faith in a 3-4-3 formation and reticence to back a five-man midfield has helped drive this success.

Joe’s chat with Sean was recorded earlier this year and originally shown on Youtube.

The Meet the Manager series involves Joe interviewing a manager with a stellar track record in Fantasy Football.

Over the summer each episode from the video archive is being converted to audio only and released as a podcast.
