Fantasy Football Tips – a DGW Special

Fantasy Football Tips – a DGW Special

kops-tips-001A double game week is a beautiful thing, like an oasis in the desert when you’ve been chugging along the past few GWs having a tough time. Planning ahead is, of course, vital, although with just QPR and Spurs involved in this DGW, the usual level of pre-analysis and scribbling down various transfer permutations to maximise the DGW coverage may not be as necessary. QPR of course are struggling just above the relegation zone and with their second highest scoring player injured and their captain suspended, there are very few realistic options to choose from. Well, just one major one really. And you know who he is!!

Spurs meanwhile are a completely different kettle of fish with many different options available and it won’t surprise you to learn that the vast majority of this article will concentrate on the North London club. However, there is a small caveat here with Spurs and that is the threat of rotation. DGW28 sees Spurs reach the end of a run of fixtures that come the full time whistle at QPR will have seen them play six matches in just 17 days, including the two-legged Europa League tie with Fiorentina which they lost, a hard-fought London derby vs West Ham and of course Sunday’s Capital One Cup Final vs Chelsea at Wembley, which they also lost! It’s therefore not been a great few days for Spurs. Don’t forget how manager Pochettino loves to rotate, especially when his team has played in Europe, so it may well be that some of his first choice team do not play the full 180mins of the DGW.

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 27 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 27GW27 is live! We hope the transfers and captain choice have left you feeling confident, well at least until the games start. Hopefully you have accounted for the blank this GW and will see the points roll in, even in the absence of Chelsea & Spurs players. The game-week kicks off with a Saturday lunch time affair. And by affair I don’t mean to imply anything about Pardew and most certainly not Big Sam; as we all know Allardyce would never be unfaithful to that piece of chewing gum. Anyways after the Hammers host Palace we see five fixtures fly our way with a 3pm start time. The Clarets receive a visit from Swansea in what promises to be an unwatched game. We also see Sunderland visit the ever reliable United defence at Old Trafford. St. James Park welcomes in Tim Sherwood and his ego. Saints look to rebound by sending in Pelle to attack the Pulis bus despite the Italian being unable to score past a tricycle, in forever. Last but certainly not least we have ‘Los tigres’ of Hull City go and try and deal with the ‘much harder than Barcelona’ Stoke side at the Britannia.

Sunday brings us the last 2 fixtures starting with a lunch time kickoff. The Merseysiders see a desperate City side come in for what looks to be the fixture of the weekend. Many will remember when Liverpool won the title last season in this exact fixture. It was glorious! In the last fixture of the GW we see Arsene ‘Snow White’ Wenger and his seven dwarfs attend to the Toffees and their prolific couldn’t hit the side of a barn door Lu-ka-ku.

Don’t forget to also share any experiences if you are participating in any or several of the woofbet.com leagues. Remember scores update in real time, so you can see who will be treating you to a beer or two when the GW ends.

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 27

fantasy football team tipsThe pain that was GW26 is over and frankly said, good riddance. Another tough week for the FF247 team and surely this could lead to some sackings. Maybe we can find a LVG type to help with our team selection? Or perhaps Mourinho can help us learn how to deflect blame a bit better. Not sure what we have to do, but this has to turnaround quick. We dropped 864 spots in the overall and are now in 2631th place. That would be a ranking that we should be immensely proud of, but we all know that after seeing the penthouse inside the top 1k, it is hard to go back to just a nice room. So with that said let us access what led to our problems this past GW and put some of our non-performers under the microscope.

In goal we had David Ospina. Once again he did not get us that coveted clean sheet and worse than that, Foster once again did, as those much needed points stared at us from our bench. Luckily (or so we thought) we found out that Phil Jones was passed fit. Unfortunately he continued to struggle to bring in any points for us. As he managed to score us a doughnut. PvA was teamed up with him and it was a fantastic decision to play him as we were correct in thinking that Sunderland could get a cleanie. However we were wrong in thinking he would start. So yeah, thanks for that 3 minute cameo and that one pointer. John Terry was the last of our crew in the back. We were so happy to see a Chelsea defender scored, surely it be Terry this time, right? What?! Ivanovic again, greedy bastard! We thinks we might have went for the wrong Chelsea defender.

Team Talk Fantasy Football Gameweek 27Well here we are, you eager beavers, GW27 has arrived – a crucial part of the season as blank GWs are followed by DGWs and it’s time to preserve a mini-league lead for the lucky ones, while others will be throwing caution to the wind as they attempt to chase down their leader. Another busy week of European football has taken place with Man City (lost), Arsenal (embarrassed), Spurs (lost), Liverpool (lost) and Everton (phew, at least someone won) all in action, while Sunday sees the Capital One Cup between Chelsea and Spurs, hence those two have a blank FPL week alongside Leicester and QPR.
So our reduced gameweek begins down in the East End and another derby for the Hammers as they host Crystal Palace. We then have five 3pm kick offs as Burnley entertain Swansea, United welcome Sunderland to Old Trafford, Tim Sherwood takes his Villains up to St James Park to face Newcastle, Stoke and Hull do battle at the Britannia and finally West Brom take on Southampton. Sunday sees two matches and provides the highlight of the gameweek – firstly at lunchtime Liverpool face Man City at Anfield, with both teams in great league form and that is followed by a tricky away trip for Everton as they travel down to Arsenal.
Let’s go Around the Grounds and see what the managers have had to say. Read More

Woofbet Tournament Spotlight Gameweek 27 – Fantasy Premier League Betting

Woofbet LogoThis must be the first time in Tournament Spotlight history where we can look back at the previous gameweek, nod in approval at our players and agree that they performed relatively like we expected. I’m also going to now take the next few sentences of your life to dwell in ones predictory success. Last week – watch your back KopWarrior – a certain managerial genius tipped Kane to blank, Ivanovic & Lukaku as worthy captain choices and N’Doye to smash one home for the second week running. Not a bad weeks tipping if you’re asking me! Alright, alright… I’m ignoring the fact I tipped Zouma, Wollscheild & Stones to keep clean sheets. Also, that little part where I might have said that Aston Villa vs. Stoke & Hull vs. QPR were the two most likely fixtures to remain goalless. This week I’ve brushed up on my defensive research and returned alongside Woofbet to bring you a spotlight of the finest Fantasy Premier League betting tournaments this weekend!

Kops Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27

kops-tips-001There’s a blank gameweek for Chelsea, Spurs, QPR & Leicester this week! If this is first you’ve heard of this you must be living under a rock. Chances are the vast majority of fantasy managers will be seriously effected as the likes of Ivanovic, Fabregas, Hazard, Costa, Eriksen & Kane all have ownership rates in excess of 25%. The question is, should you decide to bench three of these can you rely on your remaining players to all start for their respective clubs? I suspect many of us will end up fielding nine or 10 players this weekend. Of course you might decide to take a hit in order to field 11, but we believe a strong case can be made for playing with nine or ten this weekend. Enough of that waffle, we’re not here to talk about who’s not playing, we’re much more interested in those that play as they’re the ones who’ll earn you the points. Having once more dragged ourselves away from the cricket, we have below outlined a number of players whom we feel can deliver over the coming weeks. Read More

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueWell, well, well, what a weekend that was just gone with a Chelsea disappointment, a City super show and the Red Devils once again underperforming.
So onto the pitfalls of the looming Gameweek and with 4 teams not in action, I hope you’ve been planning well? If not it spells trouble in a monumental way, but I know what you’re thinking – as I look into my crystal ball you are going to load up on Spurs men for their GW28 double fixture fun.
But now please listen in, from a top source of mine. Tottenham Hotspur are renowned for rotation when a hectic fixture schedule hits them, nobody is guaranteed to play both of those Premier League fixtures so be careful as I don’t want anybody’s recent upturn with their FPL team getting undone.
Now let’s look at the 2 Competition’s that i have held over recent days. Read More

Captain’s Picks Fantasy Football Gameweek 27

Captains Picks Fantasy Football Gameweek 27 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Captain picksHello friends and welcome to your Captains Article for GW27. Now this article relates to the original fantasy football EPL game. You remember that one? We used to love this in the days before we were distracted by the UEFA Champions League and Europa League fantasy games, all those substitutions and captaincy changes strewn over the course of nine days for the former or four hours in the case of the latter. MLS fantasy is starting back up which a lot of us enjoy greatly – only the Americans can come up with a game where price changes are based upon your performance in one game, providing you play 45 minutes at least of course, such as is their fascination with fast-paced gaming and basically being a bit different! Apparently now cricket too has been getting big licks with the fantasy brush. So I’ve heard. Let’s be honest, can you really take a sport seriously where Scotland qualify for the World Cup? Anyway back to the real fantasy.

The flipside of the forthcoming doubler in GW28 is that GW27 contains a measly eight matches to rummage around in and pick you out some captaincy choices.
There’s no Chelsea, no Eriksen or Kane either due to the Rumbelow’s Cup Final, so there goes around 50% of the choices. Also, the four teams who play on Sunday will be coming off the back of European matches (Liverpool far-travelled too) and the threat of rotation/injuries/fatigue means a captain from any of these teams could be seen as some form of risk. This’ll be fun! Read More

Fantasy football tips fixturesGW26 finally came to life at approximately 4.25PM on Saturday after a distinctly lame start to the week when suddenly Nemanja Matic got himself sent off and seemingly sent a tidal wave of activity as Bafetimbi Gomis scored what would prove to be the winner for Swansea, Mee then equalised against Chelsea, N’Doye grabbed a late winner for Hull, Vlaar got himself sent off for conceding a penalty which Moses duly converted for a late winner and Glenn Murray emerged from the bench to score late against Arsenal and ultimately almost cost the Gunners all three points with a shot against the post. It was a breathless twenty minutes which was followed by a much more routine 5-0 rout for Man City as Aguero grabbed a goal and an assist for his many captainer’s but Silva was the star of the show with two goals and an assist. Sunday saw ten goals fly in from ten different players. Harry Kane was probably the most owned of all the scorers and he left it until stoppage time to make his mark but even that was tinged with a bit of a regret as he scored but only after missing the initial penalty to reduce his goal to a two pointer effectively.

GW27 creates it’s own issues for fantasy managers as we enter a rather strange and perplexing couple of weeks with four teams not playing this week and then two teams playing twice in GW28. Chelsea, Leicester, QPR and Spurs all miss out this week and then QPR and Spurs both play twice the week after. Let’s go and take a look at how all of this effects our view on who has decent fixtures and who doesn’t…

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Game-week 26GW26 is live! After days of deliberation your transfers are done and your captain is picked. So now it is time to sit back and watch the points roll in, hopefully. Our main man T.J. should have the line-ups with you soon, to get the GW going. Saturday sees no lunchtime action as we have six games starting at 3pm. Stoke pays a visit to Villa park and have left all their keepers at home, daring any Villa forward to score. Chelsea receive Burnley in what is the first of two easy game-weeks. Pardew and Wenger battle it out for sexiest man alive when Arsenal’s midfield dwarfs visit Selhurst Park. Hull City welcomes in QPR in a bit of Sunday League action. Pulis leads his all out attack to face a Sunderland side that is looking to achieve mediocrity. In Swansea we will see a Siggy sighting as they look to fend off the sideways long ball attack of LVG’s men. In the last game of the day City welcome in the Toon, who they have managed to pummel 15-1 in their last 5 EPL meetings.
Sunday brings us the last 3 fixtures starting with a lunch time kickoff. Spurs one man show Bale Kane looks to add more goalkeeper scalps to his ever growing collection as the hammers come in after their FA cup disaster. That is followed up by the Toffees rolling out the red carpet for last place Leicester who are always a sight for sore eyes. The GW is concluded when the Saints look to derail Liverpool’s charge for a Champions League spot, in what looks like the best game of the weekend.

Fantasy football tips hintsLast time out brought us some midweek fixtures and a headache with it. As we saw our team drop 513 spots into 1767th spot in the overall rankings. However we are thankful as our score of 46 was 6 above the average of 40, so the blow could have been a lot worse. After a bout with trichotillomania during the GW, nothing like running a quick review of how our hair is all but gone now. So onto the GW that was before we discuss what our plans are for GW26.

In goal we returned the Colombian David Ospina. Unfortunately what seemed an easy clean sheet vanished into the middle of thin air. As Arsenal surrendered a goal to lowly Leicester. Our back 3 was formed by Jones, Terry and PvA. Jones did really well in the 4 minutes he was out there. Better than that, he left the pitch and watched his replacement score a goal within seconds of entering. To compound matters Smalling added another later on for the brace, all at the expense of our Jonesy. Another one who looked destined to produce was PvA. How hard can it be really? QPR was coming in for a visit and they only managed 6 goals in 11 games (when playing away) on top of being without Charlie Austin. So again, how hard can it be? Well two goals against and one point later we found our answer. Moving along to our fourth sure bet for a clean sheet John Terry. Yes! We finally found one with Pikey and the CFC defence. When you are having a bad day, usually a Chelsea defender at Stamford Bridge can alleviate the pain a little. Read More

Team Talk Fantasy Football Gameweek 26WAKE UP, WAKE UP!! Pack your bags, load up the car, the holiday is over and it’s back to school time, sorry. It’s back to FPLville for us all after a long and deserved break.
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve spoken, but it’s lovely to be back. Many thanks to Lawdogg for picking up the reins these last few weeks and frankly doing a mighty fine job. So what have I missed? Constant Gooner love, more references to the Lord of the Rings than Katie Price’s autobiography, the departures of ‘Arry and Paul Lambert, the mysterious disappearance of Andre Wisdom, Chris Baird and Sebastien Pocognoli and Nigel Pearson’s new tactic of “If you can’t beat them, strangle them”. So bear with me as I catch up and bring you this week’s preview. I’m a bit rusty.
With a busy weekend of FA Cup action behind us and a hectic week of European action for Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs and Everton over, I hope you’ve all been prudent and saved your transfers! Nah? Thought not! GW26 sees the reverse fixtures to the opening day of the season, with many teams looking for revenge.
Our gameweek begins at 3pm Saturday, giving us plenty of time to gain those essential brownie points on Saturday morning. There are six games mid afternoon as Tim Sherwood takes charge of Villa for the first time as they host Stoke. In London, Chelsea entertain Burnley, while Arsenal cross the river for the short trip to Crystal Palace. QPR travel out of their comfort zone of the capital to go to Hull, Sunderland take on West Brom and LVG ventures into Wales as Utd meet Swansea. Our early evening game sees us at the Emptihad with Newcastle the visitors.
And then onto Sunday as our three Europa League contenders all feature. First up is another London derby and one full of hatred. Yep, Spurs are playing! West Ham are the visitors and it could get ugly. Everton then follow as they host Leicester and our gameweek finishes down on the South coast as Liverpool travel to Southampton.
Loads to get through, let’s waste no further time and get Around the Grounds to see the latest news. Read More

Woofbet Tournament Spotlight Gameweek 26 – Fantasy Premier League Betting

Woofbet LogoIt’s almost been 10 days since the Premier League graced our television sets and our fantasy football teams last got a good run out. For some this break has been a time to reflect on last weekend and the season so far, for others it’s been a time test their managerial skills on the European stage and experience the highs and lows of Champions League fantasy football. Regardless of how you spent it, a new gameweek is upon us and now is the time to move our ire from Olivier Giroud to another big shot that’ll inevitably blank as captain this weekend. My fingers on Harry Kane, for some reason it only just twigged that he’s been the perfect captain choice for pretty much the entire year – so this gameweek I’ve given him the armband and I’m prepared for him to let me down like Arjen Robben did during the week. We’ve got a solid variety of tournaments on Woofbet.com this weekend with entry fees ranging from €2 to €25. This tournament spotlight is going to take a look at this gameweek’s low entry fee tournaments for all you managers feeling a bit short-changed due to the high frequency of matches.

kops-tips-001I say, I don’t like cricket, oh no, I love it! With the cricket World Cup having gotten off to such a superb start last weekend you’d almost be forgiven for getting about FPL altogether and just concentrating on fantasy cricket! But fear not we’re only a few days away from the return of FPL and it’s time to start fine tuning your teams as the first double gameweek of the season is only just around the corner, although more importantly our first blank gameweek of the season is next week so it’s time to strengthen your bench as the vast majority of fantasy managers will surely have three players from Chelsea, Spurs, QPR & Leicester to bench next week. What do you mean your bench isn’t important? So we’ve reluctantly pulled ourselves away from the cricket to discuss FPL and below we have outlined a number of players whom we feel can deliver over the coming weeks. “Howzat”. Read More
