Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11. Lists. They’re all over the internet. The problem is that most of them start with a few banal ‘under the radar’ choices that no-one cares about, ultimately ascending to a stonkingly obvious no.1; to wit, “Top 10 Hated Star Wars Characters”; “2001’s Most Shocking Incidents”; and “The Best 5 Football Management Simulators for your PC.” Discussing the lists’ also-rans is rarely little more than a thinly veiled ego-stroking exercise for the compiler to constipate the reader with unnecessary information in an overly verbose and periphrastic manner. If you’re reading this, then perhaps you like lists; or maybe you...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 11 2016-17

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek11 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 11 2016-17. I think we can all agree that this last week went a little more according to the script that we all had in our heads when this season started. Arsenal, Liverpool, and Man City all getting 4 goals in easy wins? Check. Eden Hazard attacking the ball and looking like a true superstar? Check. Jose Mourinho completely making a mess of things? Check. After the crazy season last year, it’s almost nice, comforting even, to be back in a predictable cycle within the Premier League. Sure, we’ll still root for that underdog team to make a bid for Top 4, and we’ll still root for a surprise promotion team to surpass expectations in their first year up; but when it comes to fantasy purposes, we have no qualms w...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 10 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 10 FPL News: And we are off!! Game-week 10 gets us going with a foregone conclusion, as Arsenal will grab the 3 points when they travel to the Stadium of light Darkness. That “one team rolling over and playing dead” fixture is followed by six more. United look to bore Burnley off the pitch, Boro and Bournemouth tangle in another battle of low expectations. In other action, the best defence (Spurs) faces Leicester, who can’t defend, so much so that even United scored on them…4 times. Watford and Hull duel in a battle of fugly kits, The Baggies face first place City at the Hawthorns and Palace finish the day off with a match up against the “WE ARE GOING TO WIN THE LEAGUE” Liverpool. S...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10 article. GW9 was one of the dullest game-weeks in history – it was a game-week dominated in the main by clean sheets for a change and we were fortunate enough to gain a clean sweep of them, courtesy of Cech, Walker, Holebas and Pieters. The only other contributions to our score were assists for Firmino and Lukaku and yet we scored 48pts, 6pts above the average of 42 and saw us climb to a ranking of 57,577. Exciting stuff. Another captain failure for Alexis was slightly compensated by Kun scoring just a solitary point on Sunday, so things could have been worse. All in all, we probably dodged a bullet given our defensive performance. Transfer: Rasford to Deeney We contemplated a whole r...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 10 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 10. Another week, another week to disappoint and deflate – or as so many are feeling after a rough few weeks which has seen captain choices fail and regular names not delivering. And so onto game-week 10 and we kick off at the Stadium of Light where Sunderland host Arsenal in the lunchtime match. Five 3pm matches follow as Man United aim to bounce back from last week’s nightmare at Chelsea as they host Burnley, Boro face Bournemouth, Spurs welcome the Champion Foxes, Hull go to Watford and West Brom tackle Man City. Liverpool again appear in front of the cameras as they face Palace under the lights at Selhurst… oh the memories. Sunday sees two matches – firstly Everton ...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10. Oh dear! Another one of those weeks. The masses log in to see how their expensively assembled array of fantasy superstars have fared, only to see an array of red arrows and a whole lot of not much in terms of points next to the names of their chosen ones. Time to reassess or time to be stubborn and dig down? Possibly a bit of both. Frustrating though isn’t it?! You’ve done the due diligence and checked the form and fixtures of everyone involved and have landed on a grand plan. Now you just need the pieces to fall into place. But sometimes they don’t, for whatever reason. We had this at the beginning of last season too and it resulted in a good many fantasy managers tearing their ha...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10. Considering the fact that we are already 9 weeks into the season now is probably the time when we start to take our captain picks even more serious than before! Those of us who have struggled throughout the opening game-weeks are sticking to the excuse that to date we haven’t taken things seriously. How difficult it is to get our capo right? Let’s just take a quick look at the highest three scorers in each of the past 3 game-weeks. GW9 – Shaqiri 15pts – Cahill 14pts – Reid 14pts GW8 – Stanislas 21pts – Allen 16pts – Holebas 15pts GW7 – Koscielny 15pts – Firmino 12pts – Costa 12pts So as you can see it’s not that easy to forecast...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek10 2016-17

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek10 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 10 2016-17. I went back and reread my previous week’s Fixtures article this morning. It’s usually something I do with a bit of trepidation, because once those picks are locked in, there’s really no turning back. Once the article is published, I’m either going to be right or wrong on those picks, and I just have to live with the shame if I really messed up. I’m usually OK with a single missed pick – after all, not everything is supposed to turn out 100% correct (if it did, I’d be a millionaire sports bettor right now). And I have to say, looking at the picks last week, even knowing how those matches played out, I’m not sure I could honestly say that I wouldn’t make the same picks again if I had to do it...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 9 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 9 FPL News: Bournemouth hosting Spurs gets the game-week going for us, one would expect The Cherries to be done scoring for the season after dropping six on Hull last week That lunch time fixture is followed by six more at 3pm. The Gunners collect 3 points vs Boro, Burnley looks to pad Heaton’s save stats when they face Everton, Hull continues to pretend to be an EPL team when they face Stoke. In other action we see the EPL uncaring Foxes vs Palace, relegation bound Swansea bend over for Watford and West Ham continue climbing the table when they face Sunderland. In Saturday’s closing fixture, Liverpool will tangle with a more offensively inclined side in West Brom than the United side they played last GW. S...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 9 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 9 article. One Jose Holebas, there’s only one Jose Holebas, one Jose Holebas! We’ll come back to our favourite Greek in a moment. With the average score for GW8 being 39pts it’s safe to suggest that we weren’t the only ones to have a shocker. We ended up with 45pts which resulted in a red arrow dropping us to 66,878 in the rankings. To be honest it could have been worse. Our captain, a certain Sergio Aguero finished the gameweek on a minus score thanks to his penalty miss. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time our captain has contributed a negative score. So back to Holebas. Thanks to a goal, a clean sheet and three baps he finished with 15pts which was a massive 33% of our total. Elsewhere o...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 9 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 9. A change is as good as a rest, so they say. Well sadly for you, you got the rest from me rather than a change. I am back. Around the Grounds is back. Your weekly preview full of waffle, useless stats and lies and deceptions aplenty from the managers returns to confuse you just as you were on the point of deciding this week’s transfer. Our game-week kicks off Saturday lunchtime as in form Bournemouth host unbeaten Spurs. Six 3pm matches follow – Arsenal attempt to continue their form as they welcome Boro, Everton travel to Burnley, Hull and Stoke face each other, champions Leicester take on the Palace of the Lord, Watford go to Wales and West Ham host Sunderland.

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 9

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 9. Hello friends. We really hope you were you one of the lucky ones who didn’t suffer the ignominy of a missed penalty this past week in FPL. Lucky lot you were. Some had two misses. Some three! Anyway, now we have addressed about 0.00001% of the FPL population, how are the rest of you? OK so it was very strange indeed that Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Christian Benteke ALL missed from 12 yards and if you had all three then you’ve probably gone beyond rage and on to hysterical laughing. Screengrab your team and print it and frame it – that’s a legendary fail worth hanging on your wall. So yours truly (GP) captained Aguero on the basis of ‘perma-captaining’ the best player in the league, thus taking...[Read More]
