Plane passengers spot pilot sorting fantasy football moments before take-off

A pilot has been caught making changes to their fantasy football team just moments before take-off.

While being responsible for an aircraft must be a high-pressure situation, many footie fans would argue nothing compares to getting your side sorted before a gameweek deadline.

And the pilot in question clearly had their priorities in order as they were pictured tinkering with their team in the cockpit by a passenger who was boarding the flight. "So that’s what they do on those iPads," joked one Twitter user.

Another said: "Imagine playing FPL as a pilot. Different time zones missing deadlines 38,000 feet in the air!!" And a third smartly suggested: "Eze jet?"

Who he had in the starting XI isn't quite clear, but it's safe to assume Gabriel Jesus features. Arsenal's new striker has become the most-owned star in the history of FPL with over 76% of players having him in their team.

Although the other 24% will be pleased after he blanked against Crystal Palace on Friday (August 5) night. The pilot's team is sure to be flying either way.

We can only assume they've taken inspiration from the day job when it comes to naming it. Surely 'We're Flying Without Ings' is as fitting a name as you can get.

Or maybe 'We're Going Toulouse' is a better choice. They could also have named it after their pre-flight question: 'Ayew Ready?'.
