Hull 0-2 Chelsea With the opportunity to go top of the league overnight Chelsea were always going to be a handful for Hull, however the home side have been very solid at at the KC so it was never going to be plain sailing for the Blues. Chelsea worked very hard in the first half but were unable to break the deadlock. They had to wait till the 56th minute when Eden Hazard fired them ahead with a stunning goal from the edge of the penalty area after he had avoided a few vein Hull challenges as he weaved his magic after Ashley Cole’s deft flick to Hazard, to claim the assist. The three poin...[Read More]

Welcome everyone to 2014 and the first Potty Predictions Competition of the New Year. As many of you are aware Potty’s Bookies was forced to close briefly over the festivities due to extensive flooding but as things start to dry out we are open for business again.

So Christmas and the New Year have come and gone for another twelve months and with them the crazy period that saw us all face 4 game-weeks in a ten day period. For many it was a successful time as they stormed up the rankings, while for others, it was a torrid time which forced them to turn to the turkey sandwiches to find some solace. We have now moved into another extremely important period as we all have the opportunity to tinker extensively with our teams using the January wildcard. Whether you have already activated the wildcard or whether you are holding onto it for a week or two we fee...[Read More]
This game-week’s captaincy choice promises to be an interesting and maybe even problematic conundrum. With injuries to popular candidates Sergio Aguero, RvP and now also Theo Walcott, as well as an ongoing groin problem for Wayne Rooney, there will be some difficult decisions to be made this week. In most cases, the default option for the majority of managers would probably be to hand the armband to Luis Suarez, but we feel there are a number of interesting and viable alternatives to the Liverpool striker. While there are usually just three or four viable candidates for captain in any given we...[Read More]
While most Fantasy Football mini-league battles are usually decided on the big issues such as captain choices over the course of the season, sometimes the closer battles are won by one under-utilised element: the differential. The differential is the player that is uncommon in the vast majority of teams, and has the potential to give you those additional points – even just the odd cheeky goal or clean sheet – that will see you steadily rising up the overall rankings and in your mini-leagues. It’s maybe not the player you bank on, on a game-weekly basis but rather when the time arises and...[Read More]
As the taste of turkey fades, the Yuletide mist dissipates, and we come to terms with the damage we’ve done to our wallets, our waistlines, and in some cases our reputations… Welcome to our FantasyFootball 247 Leagues round up – including our first Monthly Hall of Fame inductee! The Season League Well, a rapid and at times fairly crazy few game weeks have passed since we last checked in on our leader board, (a mere two real world weeks ago!) but some things in life can be relied upon. We’re not referring to Potty’s fleeting relationship with reality, nor the fact that Mito may be the most conn...[Read More]
