FPL Interview – Plans & Strategies

Fantasy Football Interview – Plans & Strategies Welcome to Fantasy Football Interview – Plans & Strategies. As we all continue to tinker with our squads and work out how to include as many of the top players as possible we thought it would be helpful and interesting to pick the brains of some veteran and well-known FPL players. By veteran I mean by way of experience in playing FPL, not in seniority in years! I have to admit to being quite excited at getting our selected panel together – between them they have numerous finishes in the top 1k, throughout the season they spend hours helping others with sound FPL advice as well as entertaining thousands on their various sites or twitter with merciless banter and wit. Allow me to introduce them to you. FPL Fly – Fly has be...[Read More]

World Cup Final and 3rd/4th Place Play-off Live Match Chat – Rate My Team

World Cup Final and 3rd/4th Place Play-off Live Match Chat Putin must be delighted at the thought of Europe’s finest taking over Moscow on Sunday. But it is what it is and the stadium will be covered in red and blue as France take on Croatia in the World Cup Final. These two have only met once before in the World Cup, in 1998, when the French triumphed 2-1 in the semi-final on the way to winning the trophy for the first and, to date, only time. Croatia have never beaten France in their only previous five meetings, losing three and drawing the last two. The 3rd/4th place play off sees England meet Belgium – a match dominated by Premier League involvement, unless of course Belgium make mass changes, which they may well do. The two have met three times previously in World Cup competition – in...[Read More]

Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions Game 7 (Final) Welcome to Barry and Paul’s World Cup Predictions World Cup Final. It appears after all that, football shall not be making its way home. Given that Scotland is in reality the true birthplace of ‘soccer’ as we know it, that’s no great surprise, in which case football will probably never be going home. On to the winners! The scores keep dropping but that’s to be expected with a maximum 11pts on offer. As it was nobody got close to that score. Mahelmy came the ‘closest’ though; 4pts was enough to claim top spot this week. Second place with 2pts was current league leader Horse, stretching his lead at the top to 6pts, for Horse the real prize may just be coming home. Winner – Mahelmy – 4pts 2nd – Horse – 2pts The Overall Ta...[Read More]
