Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Brighton

Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Brighton I’m writin’ about Brighton. As Milburn and Rosco combine to give us the canny lowdown on their local heroes at Newcastle and as Brookyboy runs through his beloved Huddersfield Terriers, it fell to me to write about my local side – 469 miles for those curious! I’m actually closer to Killarney than Brighton but that’s not to say I can’t fall in love and adopt them as my little team this season. So let me give you a quick meet and greet to ‘my’ Albion before we look at the five players I’ve selected who I think could provide the best value for your fantasy squads this season. Brighton and Hove Albion to give them their full title were founded in 1901 and this season will be their first ever in t...Read More

Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Huddersfield

Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Huddersfield After watching supposed smaller teams like Wigan, Swindon, Blackpool and Bradford make it to the premiership in the past, 2017/18 is Huddersfield Town’s turn after 45 years away from the top division!! Personally, I’m still in shock and never thought I would see it in my lifetime, though I did dare to dream and admit to shedding a tear, along with a lot of others, when that final penalty went in, in the playoff final at Wembley! Only after the Premier league fixtures came out and Town started signing players for £10m+ did it begin to sink in we are Premier League!! It could be said that Huddersfield exceeded all expectations after finishing the previous season in 19th place and were tipped by Ian Holloway to be relegated. With a ...Read More

New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette

New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette. Welcome back to a brand-new season of Fantasy Premier League! The Transfer Window has been in full swing since the 1st of July with plenty new faces coming into the league giving us fantasy managers more options to pull our hair out over. In the coming weeks, we will see multiple drafts, probably all from Mitro, containing different combinations of some of these new faces so to make it easier for him and everyone else; below I have written up an analysis of some of those faces. With so much money flooding into the English League in the recent years we are seeing some ridiculous transfers and transfer fees up and down the divisions (Ruben Ne...Read More

Value for money and points for free…

Value for money and points for free… “Play air guitar with MTV That ain’t workin’, that’s the way to do it, Points for nothing & chics for free. I want my, I want my, I want my FPL.” No, I can’t do anything about partners for free, we ‘re talking someone who can’t score in a house of ill repute the night after winning the lottery here. But through many Sunday mornings of a sore head from trying to work out how 3 pints and a poppadom with the lads cost me £70 I am now well equipped to advise on spending a bare minimum, even if it does severely limit your social life; but hey this is FPL not Love Island. The way fpl bumps up the price of every player who remembered to tie his laces before going on the pitch means our wonderful polishe...Read More

New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe

New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe. Cookie gets United’s latest additions, of course Init takes Everton and Matt has cherry picked Arsenal & City. And what about Kop I hear you ask? Well due to Liverpool’s insistence on writing apology letters rather than acquiring new players I’ve chosen Bournemouth! Why? I’m wondering that myself and should I come up with a worthwhile answer I’ll be sure to let you know. Enough about me, what about Bournemouth. This will be their 3rd straight season in the top flight finishing 16th in 2015/16 and 9th last season. They’ll certainly hope to continue on such a trajectory. To date they’ve added three players to...Read More

New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker

New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva and Ederson. Continuing with our series of player previews and we arrive at Manchester City. I’m sure we can all agree that City were something of a disappointment last season eventually finishing 3rd. Now finishing 3rd might be considered an achievement for many clubs but not a club who had installed Pep Guardiola as manager and had invested in the likes of Nolito, Gundogan, Jesus, Sane and John ‘I can’t defend’ Stones. 3rd place will not be accepted this season and with this in mind Pep has once again been busy splashing the cash. It’s no surprise to see a new keeper arrive but I’m not sure they needed another midfielder! Let’s take a closer look...Read More

Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Newcastle

Promoted Teams Analysis FPL 2017/18 Newcastle With the 2016/17 season but a distant memory we can now look ahead to the new FPL season with renewed optimism, our batteries re-charged and ready for another 38 game weeks which will be filled with many a high and hopefully not so many lows. If you’re still lamenting a season of woe and underachievement and feeling slightly morose (remember you’re not alone, just ask David Moyes and most of the Sunderland squad), it’s now time to pick yourself up, dust yourself down and have a word with yourself as we look forward to FPL season 2017/18 – *collective hurrah! Without the distractions of a fantasy international tournament (unless you’re a gluten for punishment, and like a few of us here, latched onto the Euro Under 21 competition in a desperate b...Read More

MLS GW20 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW20 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer We have to face facts here and acknowledge the obvious: the FPL season is close, and the FMLS season means just that much less now in comparison. Add to the fact that anybody living in the UK can’t actually win a prize from FMLS (that still bothers me to no end), and you have perfect environment for people to start to drop off on playing the MLS game and focusing more on the game that we all know and love. But for those of you out there that are still keen on setting a lineup this week in FMLS, we have you covered regardless. And we have an especially MLS-y type of round for you this week. The games start tomorrow on Wednesday; and since we have a massive DGW, more games will follow on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. No fewer than fourteen teams will ...Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2016-17 FPL is finally open and ready for business and so are we with a new edition of Bore Off. This will only be one of the many articles we will try and bring you over the coming weeks, all leading to GW1 and the beginning of another season. For any new members we welcome you to the site and we hope you enjoy this article. For the veterans, you know the drill. Cookie (United fan) hates Liverpool, Init (Everton fan) hates Liverpool and Kop (Liverpool fan) hates Liverpool. Think that is a fair assessment of all three. Well ok, having seen the prices and some of the options I have called back The Three Amigos from their summer vacation to get some early observations from them for questions that many of us are wondering about. Who shou...Read More

Pre-season Hub for the 2017/18 FPL season

Pre-season Hub for the 2017/18 FPL season Hello and welcome to the Pre Season Hub for the 2017/18 season. For those both old and new to the site this is an article which aims to bring to you in one convenient place, all the vital news from each of the twenty Premier League clubs’ friendly matches this summer. The ultimate aim is to build up a portfolio of information to help you in selecting your opening FPL squad when the game re-opens week commencing 10th July (next week)! The hub is very much a living document which I personally will keep up to date as the matches take place. I encourage you guys to help out with any line-ups, goal scoring or assist information. We also like to see general notes being left here if you happened to witness on screen, or better still, in person, any partic...Read More

New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane

New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane. Having covered Everton’s attacking transfers in the previous article we now make our way back to the defence and look at new keeper Jordan Pickford and central defender Michael Keane. Both are young (Pickfrd is 23, Keane 24) and Koeman will hope that both will serve the club for seasons to come – well, at least until the manager has hopped off to Barcelona anyway. It’s the trendy thing to say, but I make no apologies for repeating myself – ignore Everton until GW6 (unless you fancy a GW1 punt home to Burnley) – GW2-GW6 fixtures read Man City (a), Chelsea (a), Spurs (h), Man Utd (a). It’s ugly folks, but it changes ...Read More

New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen

New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen. This has been an unusual window for Everton – usually they are frustrated spectators as their rivals spend away and buy a whole range of talent before the Toffees fudge around on deadline day, sneak in a deal or two – or if they’re really lucky, cash in on Marouane Fellaini at the 11th hour. This season they have dealt big and they have dealt early – out have gone Lukaku, Deulofeu and Kone and in so far have come Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen. This article will concentrate on the latter three, the attacking side of things. If you haven’t realised ...Read More
