If you have enough time before being dragged back to present opening, turkey basting or if you’re young and lucky enough to be getting your leg over, then let me walk and talk you through the last few (game)weeks. I can...

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21 More hits than Elvis I can’t lie to you it’s not been a great four weeks, either in life nor FPL. Lockdown is back, the rain has been incessant it seems, and my FPL performance and mindset has been amateur at best, as you will soon discover. Still I’ve found a new friend in a heron, discovered Elvis and hopefully lost Trump….and also taken the...

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21 Dangerous Liaisons, Wildcard woes and a donkey You may remember in my first diary entry that my season hadn’t started well with a paltry 40pts in game-week 1. But there’s a long way to go. As you are all aware FPL brings its own hurdles and problems along the way, some of them are self-inflicted, seemingly most of mine. Tuesday 15 September Took the kids to the park ...

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21

Fantasy Football Diary 2020/21 ‘It’s only GW1, son’. So much has happened since I last put pen to paper. To give you some background, I am a distinctly average FPL manager who seemingly fails to learn from his mistakes, but on the flip side I try not to take the game too seriously, I love a punt and have been known to captain full-backs too many times. From a personal point of view I am happily ma...

Fantasy Football Interview; A league winner on a mission…

Fantasy Football Interview; A league winner on a mission… When one focuses on the country of Norway, they immediately may think of the beautiful fjords, or maybe the Midnight Sun, Christmas trees, trolls or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The more aged of us may recall ‘Maggie Thatcher, your boys have taken a hell of a beating’ while millenials may be more familiar with trade deals with the EU. But if...

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 35 – 38

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 35 – 38. Welcome to Cookie’s Fantasy Football Diary. We made it! Congrats to you all for your FPL season and thank you for taking this trip with me. We of course began this journey in Monaco last August and have experienced so much since. The final four weeks of an FPL season should never be dull and so it proved. The final diary episode features bir...

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 32 – 34

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 32 – 34. Welcome to Cookie’s Fantasy Football Diary. We’re nearly there folks as I welcome you to the penultimate diary entry of the season. In this action-packed instalment we are joined by a somewhat unaware, surprising and revealing newbie writer as I try and navigate through the choppy and unpredictable water of the business end of the FPL season...

Fantasy Footballl Diary – GW’s 27 – 31

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 27 – 31. Welcome to Fantasy Football Diary. It’s been a fun, frantic and frustrating (at times) few weeks since we last met. It’s all gone on – a new job, new house, new issues for the mrs to moan about and of course we’re reaching the business end of our FPL season. Let’s get to it…. Game-week 27 I have no idea what to do with my team. K...

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 24 – 26

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 24 – 26. Welcome to Fantasy Football Diary. While it’s not been so long since my last diary entry, quite a lot has happened as you will read below, if you can stay awake! From a FPL point of view there has been, as you would expect, good, bad and comical and the odd capo faux pas! From a personal point of view, most of you will be glad to know ...

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 19-23

Fantasy Football Diary – GW’s 19 – 23. Welcome back to the diary and Happy New Year and all that jazz! It’s been an interesting 5 GW’s both in FPL and real life. Hang on, isn’t FPL real life?! There’s been the usual ups and downs, laughs and tears, good transfers and bad ones. So let me take you through it and the usual advice applies; pour yourself a long drink and raise a smile...

Fantasy Football Diary – Game-weeks 5-8

Fantasy Football Diary – GWs 5-8 Much has happened since we last met, unfortunately most of the newsworthy stuff has not been FPL related and as a word of warning, life has turned a bit rubbish, truth be told. I’ll try not to depress you or indeed look for sympathy! FPL has been very dull in comparison though a decent green arrow in GW8 will hopefully give some momentum to my season. Game-we...

FPL Deadline Day Transfers

FPL Deadline Day Transfers Welcome to Fantasy Football Deadline Day Transfers. Deadline Day was a strange day to say the least. There we were fully expecting a domino effect of expensive deals with Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho, Riyad Mahrez and Virgil van Dijk all expecting to leave clubs, while the Diego Costa stand-off may be sorted and there was speculation aplenty with many other names ex...
