Welcome to GW16 and it promises to be a real cracker, with no easy home fixtures for the “big” boys, meaning the likes of Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez are not necessarily such obvious picks for captain this week. So it’s a week that promises to really test the skill of fantasy managers and with injuries and suspensions mounting up, it could also be a test of the strength of our squads, rather than just the starting XI. With that in mind, let’s go around the grounds and see what the managers have said regarding team news for GW16.
As good old Perry Como once sang, “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas ” and from a fantasy football point of view that means games, games & more games! You thought you’ve had it tough over the first 15 game-weeks? Well you ain’t seen nothing yet! With so many games in such a short time period the top clubs are likely to rotate their squads, while the smaller clubs who don’t have the luxury of rotating their squads are more at risk of picking up a couple of injuries. Basically it just means more headaches for us fantasy managers! But fear not, below we have detailed a n...Read More
No fewer than six players have managed to clock up a suspension for the coming game-week, none more notable than Kevin Nolan, who received a straight red card for a challenge on Jordan Henderson. We rather suspect he may have fancied Christmas off having viewed how rash and unnecessary it was! However, he may not have factored in the Capital One cup match in mid-week next week as he will now only miss 2 FPL games as a result. Plenty of players are falling foul of the ‘totting up’ rule as 5 yellow cards at this stage of the season means an automatic 1 match suspension. In these situ...Read More
GW16 is fast approaching and it will soon be time for one of the biggest decisions of your fantasy week – who is the best Captain Pick for your team. Due to the continuing good form of a number of players the picks have become somewhat predictable as of late but don’t blame us, blame the players! We are working hard to try and find new ways to interpret our data for the most informative way of helping you make that crucial decision.
Hello and welcome to the game-week 15 review of the Banterbury Leagues. Now to the action and we start with the Premier League. Premier Park Bench Exports go top after beating his bogey side UD Stoke who did the double over Bench last term. This is Bench’s 8th win in a row, though 5 of those wins have been by 5 points or less, he has been very fortunate indeed. This win has also guaranteed Bench’s place in the Shield in the New Year. Cookie’s Monsters drop to 2nd and are having a bit of a wobble after losing to his great rival Kop Warriors, his defeat will be even more hurtful as K...Read More
FAVOURABLE FIXTURES MANCHESTER UNITED – Aston Villa (A), West Ham (H), Hull (A), Norwich (A) United have always thrived on an air of invincibility, especially at home. That bubble has been well and truly burst this past week. Whether they can recover that or not remains to be seen and much will depend on how they fare over the next few weeks as this one really could go either way right now. Either they steady the ship quickly, and this week will go down as a blip, or the rot continues to set in and we have a full blown crisis on our hands. We imagine Moyes will be waiting with baited bre...Read More
Fulham 2-0 Aston Villa The lunch time kick-off saw Fulham face Aston Villa, who had Christian Benteke back in their starting eleven. After a recent poor run of form Dimitar Berbatov had a point to prove to his doubters and Fulham’s new Boss Rene Meulensteen was looking to put an end to a run of six straight losses for “The Lilywhites”. Both sides came out in attacking mode and Villa’s goalkeeper, Brad Guzan, was forced into action early, producing a fine save from a Berbatov header who then had a penalty appeal turned down following a weak challenge from Ciaran Clark. Not to be outdon...Read More
