Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26. The FA Cup is usually just a rude interruption for FPL players, and this week has been no different, but for once it may have been of some relevance as we decided to look at it from the point of view of choosing a Captain from the fixtures, if you had to, and what the outcome would have been. It’s interesting simply because all of the Premier League teams were up against lesser ranked opposition and indeed some against non-league teams. No brainer then, yeah? Not necessarily. Aguero against Huddersfield… Aguero against Huddersfield when even they play a second stream team… Ah come on, we’d be transferring him in droves just to captain him. He’d have go...Read More

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26. Well, we’ve finally made it to the bye week that everybody has been fretting over for so long now. If you still have your wildcard intact, this ‘ain’t nothin’ but a thang’. If you blew your wildcard early on in the transfer window, you may be crapping your pants right now trying to figure out how you’re going to offload so many players and get them all back before the inevitable DGW’s roll around. And that’s a perfectly justified response for that situation. As you well know, Arsenal, Man City, Man United and Southampton are all on byes this round. And that’s even more significant now that Southampton have really come on with some strong performances. There will be no captaining Sanchez this week. No relying on...Read More

Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News

Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News. This weekend sees the 5th round ties for the FA Cup, meaning that it is a FPL-free weekend. However, FPL-free does not signify FPL-irrelevant far from it. If you scan through the fixtures listed below you will see eight Premier League teams are left in the competition and bizarrely all eight have been kept apart in the draw. Now a closer scan of those fixtures will show that all eight top tier teams are firm favourites to win their tie – possibly Leicester being the less obvious. We have banged on about GW28 for weeks now – and this is when we get to find out exactly how disrupted GW28 will be as that is when the 6th round of the FA Cup will be played. At present only three fixtures are ...Read More

Fantasy Football Question Time

Fantasy Football Question Time Welcome to Fantasy Football Question Time. A break from FPL can lead to many things – DIY, taking the loved one away for a Valentines treat, more productivity at work – or in my case a chance to catch up with some of the wisest brains in the FPL world. Sadly for you that meeting will stay private, but after that I had the opportunity to meet with four other FPL gurus. All are unique in their own special way, yet all provide valuable opinion for you to feed on. Our chat was enjoyable and fun and covered predominantly the current issues surrounding FPL managers – ie the blank game-weeks coming up (GW26 & GW28). We also touched on a couple of other issues. Let me introduce them to you – first up is the lesser-spotted Floydeth, who run...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News: There are just 14 weeks left now. Four or five of those will involve irregular fixtures due to either double or blank GW’s and will probably shape your FPL season. This isn’t one of those. That’s not to say this one isn’t a game changer. Or is it? Just ask Lukaku owners this week. Or indeed non owners… We hope you find your Lukaku this week. It probably won’t be Lukaku though… Doubles, blanks or neither – Lukaku was proof that every week matters. This one begins with Arsenal looking to revive any faint hopes of a title challenge at home to an ever improving Hull. Five games follow at 3pm including the man himself travelling to Middlesbrough. Saturday is roun...Read More

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 25 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 25. Things are getting interesting guys – blank game-weeks approaching, subsequent double game-weeks to be announced, mini leagues hotting up, careful planning is required. And talking of hotting up, it’s all kicking off in the Premier League – Arsenal losing twice in a row, Klopp raging at his Scouse flops, Champions Leicester heading for the trap door to the Championship, from hero to zero for Sergio Aguero and has Big Sam lost his Midas touch? All that and more to look forward to as we go into GW25. Our week kicks off at the Emirates where a rejuvenated Hull look to make it three losses on the spin for the Gooners. Six 3pm matches follow as Man United host Watford, goal-hu...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 article. Last week for most was defined by whether you owned Lukaku or not. We didn’t. Those that did saw a lovely score, those that captained him are probably still out celebrating. Or getting over the shock of a Rom cap actually paying off. Our score of 57 was above average but brought a red arrow, we lost 7k places and now sit in 39,047th place. For once our midfield let us down, no goals, no assists, nothing. Fortunately our defenders and strikers delivered – clean sheets for Walker and Nyom and an assist for Coleman were valuable additions to the goals of Zlatan and new recruit Carroll. The highlight was Defoe’s brace, the ‘fossil’ as one of our number ref...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 25

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 25 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 25. I asked Init to do a foreword for me, now you may ask why I would need such a thing in this article. Well, when I was given the task of writing TIPS (my first time ever) I quickly realized that I don’t have 3000 words in me like the previous writers did. So I figured I cheat and get 500 from the rooster. Listen fellas, as I always say and I quote myself “if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying” However, Init wrote it and apparently the dog ate it, because as you can see, there is no foreword. So now I am forced to write an intro for this article that I wasn’t planning on. Tough stuff, I know. In reviewing Tips from the past, it is obvious that we usually hold to a...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Captain Picks for Game-week 25! Fantasy players’ success last GW was mostly determined by whether or not they had Lukaku as captain. If you did, congratulations on getting 42 points; if you didn’t, tough luck! Obviously, some managers had Lukaku but didn’t captain him (including me), meaning that last game-week could go either way depending on your other players. I got a red arrow myself, which I consider to be impressive given my bad rank and the fact that one of my players singlehandedly got 21 points. Anyways, your fortune most weeks will not be determined by the presence or performance of one player. Many of the typical captain choices have ...Read More

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 25

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 25 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 25. In plotting the ins and outs of a gameweek, you typically try to allow for yourself to be completely wrong about a pick or two. It’s not allowing for ‘human error’ exactly, it’s more allowing for the humans on the pitch that will rise above their station every once in a blue moon. As the adage goes: “This is why we play the game.” But what do you do when multiple pieces of the puzzle don’t seem to fit? What do you do when multiple tribes seemingly topple empires? You grab a beer, count your blessings and move on. There’s no sense in trying to decipher how Hull went ahead and beat Liverpool by the score of 2-0. Even after Hull had supposedly sold all their best pieces, they still came out on top with a comfortab...Read More

January Transfer Analysis

January Transfer Analysis Welcome to January Transfer Analysis. Deadline Day has passed, Jim White has calmed down and put away his golden tie for another few months and the new signings will be getting acclimatised to their new surroundings. Some of the players are getting used to a new country but during this transfer window we mostly seen Premier League players swapping allegiances to another Premier League club. I don’t think there will be any arguments when I say this window was dominated by Piefaces crusade to return to the South coast of France with Marseille. Apart from that the window was rather drab for most fans with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United and Spurs not signing really signing any names with the only transfer action being to boot lads out the front...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 24 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 24 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 24 FPL News: After the hectic and somewhat disappointing midweek madness it’s straight back on the horse again barely three days later and we begin with a cracker at Saturday lunchtime. Arsenal practically wrote themselves out of the title race with that limp showing against Watford and if they are to have even the slightest chance of catching leaders Chelsea then this is a must win. We then have a chock full Saturday of entertainment with six 3pm kick offs before Spurs end our Saturday fun as they host ‘Boro in the late one. That leaves just the two on Sunday and Man City open it by playing Swansea in what looked likely to be a walkover a few weeks back. Maybe not now though, let’s see. Current Cham...Read More
