Gameweek 34 Reviews, the story so far…

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 points for their owners. Speroni was not very busy throughout the game, but he did come up huge with a cat-like save to secure the win for his side. Investment in their back line does come with a word of c...[Read More]

Gameweek 33 Fantasy Reviews

Gameweek 32 Fantasy Reviews Manchester City 4-1 Southampton Goals: Toure, Nasri, Dzeko, Jovetic; Lambert Assists: Dzeko, Silva, Kolarov, Navas; Cork Bonus Points:  Nasri (3), Silva (2), Dzeko (2) Fantasy Focus: Manchester City: City came out with a 4-1 win on a day that saw the opposition win the possession battle by 12 percentage points. Better overall play in the final third is what separated these two sides at the end of the day, Joe Hart had a relatively easy day in goal, he only faced one shot on target and you guessed it, it went in. Nevertheless Hart is looking like a solid pick if money is not tight, when you consider City’s schedule for the final stretch. That of course can be said about all of their starting defenders except for Aleksandar Kolarov. Unfortunately he has not been a...[Read More]

Gameweek 32 Fantasy Reviews

Gameweek 32 Fantasy Reviews – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League Manchester United 4-1 Aston Villa Goals: Rooney (2) Hernandez, Mata, Westwood Assists: Mata, Kagawa, Januzaj, Agbonlahor Bonus Points: Rooney (3), Mata (2), Westwood (2) Fantasy Focus: Manchester United: Apparently this one kicked off with some plane flying over Old Trafford which is quite distasteful I think so ignore all that. United should thank Villa for getting their confidence up in this one, they need all the positive energy they can get before they play Bayern Munich. Rooney broke his Old Trafford hoodoo as he netted two in this one, one being a penalty. Frustrating for a few managers I would think as with United’s blank coming up I think many stayed away from the United forward. Juan Mata got his first g...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Gameweek 31 Review

Fantasy Football Gameweek 31 Review – FPL Premier League [divider_1px] Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal Goals: Eto’o, Schurrle, Hazard, Oscar (2), Salah Assists: Schurrle, Matic (2), Torres Bonus Points:  Oscar (3), Matic (2) Schurrle (1) Fantasy Focus: Chelsea: In just an absolute flattening of Arsenal, Chelsea demonstrated what a title contender really looks like. Big teams step up in big moments and a quick glance at CFC’s record vs top 10 teams at home is a clear example of that. They finished 9-0 with 26 goals in favour and 5 against. They possess the 3 highest scoring FPL players in 3 different areas, forwards being the only blip. Considering their remaining schedule, 6 of 7 versus bottom 10 teams, any extra investment in defensive assets could well be justified. That is 10 clean sheets in ...[Read More]

Game-week 28 Review

Game-week 28 Review – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League Everton 1-0 West Ham Goals: Lukaku Assists: Baines Bonus Points: Baines (3), Stones (2), Lukaku (2) Fantasy Focus: Everton: West Ham have been on a fantastic run so for Everton to keep them scoreless is a great effort. Fantasy managers who own Mirallas will not have been happy as he started on the bench. Leighton Baines showed how important he is to this Everton team as his attacking qualities caused problems for the Hammers defence finally resulting in him providing the assist for the goal. Lukaku was rightly tipped during the week and came up good. He did start on the bench but this was due to a chest infection and so should be in the mix from the start next time out. Steven Pienaar showed some good form in this one and may ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Review – Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Review – Gameweek 27 – FPL Premier League Chelsea 1-0 Everton Goals: Terry Assists: Lampard Bonus Points: Terry (3), Cahill (2), Ivanovic (1) Fantasy Focus: Chelsea: What did we learn from Chelsea in this game? Well, what we should have known all along, grab Hazard and one of their defenders. CFC have kept 12 clean sheets for the season, 6 at Home and 6 Away. Terry in particular has delivered 7.5 PPG over his last 6 games, but don’t discount any of his defensive mates as a possibility. Cech, Cahill, Iva and Azpi are all worthy of consideration, 6 out of their last 8 opponents have not been able to register a goal against them. As for SuperEden, it was not one of his best performances, but it is obvious he is the main generator of offense at CFC. He had 5 key pa...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Game-week 26 Review

Game-week 26 Review – FPL Fantasy Football Premier League Welcome to the game-week that nearly wasn’t! The big fear all week in the build up to GW26 was that the London tube strike would wipe out some or all of the fixtures in the capital but we managed to side-step that one nicely. What we didn’t see coming was the mother of all storms in the North hitting home on Wednesday night and wiping out both the Everton v Crystal Palace and Man City v Sunderland games. This of course now means the prospect of even more double game-weeks to enjoy but quite where Man City are going to fit them all in now is anybody’s guess! Of course it was too late to do anything about it from a fantasy football point of view and it sent most of us running off to check the state of our subst...[Read More]

Sunday Review Gameweek 13

Tottenham 2-2 Manchester United Super Sunday started off with a mouth watering clash as both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were looking to bounce back from disappointing results last weekend. A win was needed by both sides and they gave it a good go. It was Spurs who opened the scoring in the 18th minute as Kyle Walker cleverly blasted the ball under the jumping United wall from a free-kick after Paulinho had been fouled by Jonny Evans. It was then the turn of United’s man in form, Wayne Rooney, who poked home the equaliser in the 32nd minute after Walker made a complete mess of Phil Jones’ clearance and allowed the ball to drop at the feet of the striker. The teams went in level at the break and the match was poised for a tight second-half affair. No one would have expecte...[Read More]

Saturday Review Gameweek 13

Aston Villa 0-0 Sunderland Prince William was in attendance this afternoon, as he made his first ever visit to Villa Park, but even he could not influence this dour encounter. Sunderland’sEmanuele Giaccherini wasted the chance to be king for the day and will need a royal pardon from manager Gus Poyet for an awful miss in the first half. This was far from a royal performance as the home side struggled against a team who have been woeful on their travels and it proved to be a forgettable experience for the Duke of Cambridge as Christian Benteke produced another anonymous performance and has now gone six games without scoring, cheers greeted his substitution four minutes from time. Benteke had gone close in the 34th minute,Karim El Ahmadi pulled the ball back for Ashley Westwood and he laid a...[Read More]

Saturday Review – Gameweek 12

Everton 3-3 Liverpool Saturday’s early kick off saw the 221st meeting in all competitions for the Merseyside club’s with Roberto Martinez looking to mastermind Everton’s 1st derby win in the Premier League since October 2010. With Daniel Sturridge on the bench for Liverpool the Reds were banking on a performance from Luis Suarez in this often volatile fixture and it took just 5 minutes for him to provide the assist for Philippe Coutinho to open the scoring. Just 3 minutes later and it was all square when Leighton Baines whipped in a free-kick and Kevin Mirallas fired past Simon Mignolet. With Everton forcing the play a needless foul on Suarez by Gareth Barry was severely punished by the Uruguayan with a rasping 25 yard scorcher. Mirallas was fortunate to stay on the pitch with what l...[Read More]

Sunday Review – Gameweek 11

Tottenham 0-1 Newcastle Loic Remy scored the only goal of the game in the 13th minute as the Toon Army carried on from their impressive victory over Chelsea the previous week, this time winning away at White Hart Lane. Midweek Europa League action does not aid Spurs when it comes to their league form as they slumped to their third loss of the campaign and second at home. Praise must go to Newcastle keeper Tim Krul who was absolutely ‘out of this world’ in goal, making an incredible 14 saves and fully deserving the man of the match award. Bonus Points: Tim Krul (3), Loic Remy (2), Mike Williamson (1)
