Tips Game-week 35 – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League As we suspected, DGW34 wasn’t the point’s bonanza that DGW31 was and in truth it left the majority of fantasy mangers rather frustrated. If we had told you last week that Jason Puncheon would be the game-weeks highest scoring midfielder and that Conor Wickham would be the highest scoring forward you would still be laughing at us now, but it just goes to prove that when it comes to fantasy football you should always expect the unexpected. Not only did the some of the big hitters fail, some of them of them have also picked up injuries...[Read More]
Captains Picks Game-week 35 – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League Well, well, well, it looks like my old nemesis Luis Suarez and I meet again. There is probably no bigger detriment to my continued employment than the Uruguayan. While all managers have fantasies about Luis running wild (not streaking I hope) I am left stricken with nightmares. Nothing makes a Captaincy article writer sicker than a Suarez hat-trick. He dares us to look somewhere else and when we do he punishes us in a very inhumane way. Nevertheless there are other options and while it takes all the FPL courage you can mus...[Read More]

Gameweek 34 Reviews, the story so far… – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League Crystal Palace 1-0 Aston Villa Goals: Puncheon Assists: Bolasie Bonus Points: Puncheon (3), Ward (3), Speroni (3) Fantasy Focus: Crystal Palace: With their third win on the run, Palace have all but secured top flight football for another year. Playing their typical put you to sleep style in the first half, they came alive in the second and really should have won this game by a heftier margin. Julian Speroni and Joel Ward did not only grab their fourth clean sheet in five but they also secured 3 bonus point...[Read More]
This weekend marks the closest weekend to the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, when of course 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives on that fateful day in Sheffield in 1989. It was a tragedy that struck the hearts of not just the city of Liverpool, but football fans the world over and served to remind us that football is just a game. There will be numerous remembrances over the course of the week and as a poignant reminder, a minute’s silence will be held before each match and kick-offs this weekend will be delayed by seven minutes. It will, of course, be felt most at Anfield when L...[Read More]
We all remember the last double game-week as the fantasy points rained down amongst us, it was like everywhere you turned there were fantasy points, to be honest it was nearly too easy!! So is this double game-week likely to bring as much joy to as many fantasy managers and the simple answer to that is no it’s not. Why? Well because we only have four teams involved this time around and also the same quality of teams are not involved. That’s not to say that this double game-week should be ignored rather it should be treated with some caution. Therefore we would suggest that when you are making ...[Read More]
