Eager Kilbane Still Living in Fantasyland as Arsenal Dream Team Comes to Play


Byline: Colin Young

KEVIN KIlBANE has a dilemma as Huddersfield face Arsenal at the Emirates. Does he leave Sami Nasri in his Daily Mail Fantasy Football league team? And does he keep him as his captain? Kilbane's Killa Class team is fourth in my Fatboy league, 69 points behind our leader Richard 'Fletch' Fletcher and 75 ahead of my team in 10th, whom he is determined to beat.

Signed by Lee Clark to add some much-needed experience to his League One promotion chasers, Kilbane, capped 108 times by Ireland and on a run of 63 consecutive competitive matches, knows he has put his international career, and place in Giovanni Trapattoni's Euro 2012 squad, in jeopardy with the move. …
