And so another game-week has crept by and with it many fantasy managers are one step closer to their goals while others are one step further away, and then there are those who are just in need of divine inspiration. With wildcard season well under way fantasy managers the world over are questioning their sanity. If you have resisted temptation and kept your wildcard then this could be a crucial week for you as there are so many tasty fixtures and so little room in that forward line.

FAVOURABLE FIXTURES SUNDERLAND – Southampton (H), Stoke (H), Newcastle (A), Hull (H) ‘Slowly, slowly catchy monkey’ may be the best way to describe Gus Poyet’s mini revolution at The Black Cats.

It was against Fulham though, as a word of caution, and everyone seems to be having a field day when it’s Fulham time! There has been a definite improvement at Sunderland though since the arrival of the new boss but it has taken time to translat...[Read More]
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.
