8 years without a trophy? Here’s a new contract Arsene…

Posted  February 18, 2013  by  TO

Over the past few months, without real explanation, my personal levels of enthusiasm for the beautiful game has somewhat waned. It’s surprising, considering that 2012 was such a good year for my club West Ham.  Winning the championship play off final at Wembley and then doing reasonably well in the Premier League, you’d think that […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 17

Posted  December 15, 2012  by  CG

For gameweek 17, we’re backing the wounded animal. Following their crushing stoppage time defeat to their Manchester (and title) rivals, we’d expect Manchester City to begin putting things right in the league away at Newcastle. City have won nine of their last 11 matches against the Magpies, while Alan Pardew’s side has registered just three […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 16

Posted  December 7, 2012  by  CG

For Gameweek 16, it’s worth noting that both Sunderland and Reading will be involved in a double gameweek. Of course, their fixtures aren’t exactly looking easy, particularly given their current league positions and poor form. We’d avoid loading your fantasy side with Mackems and Royals, but then we’d also be careful about ditching any of […]

Posted  December 1, 2012  by  CG

A few of our recommended changes from Gamweek 14 were thrown out there with one eye on this weekend’s fixtures. Admittedly, the Norwich, Liverpool and Chelsea players we recommended won’t have done you much good in midweek fantasy football, and while we’re wary of copping out, we would rehash some of the same advice for […]

Fantasy Football tips: Gameweek 5

Posted  September 16, 2011  by  CG

Given my recent performance, you’d be forgiven for suggesting that I should be the last person to offer any kind of advice on fantasy footy. All I can say in response is, I do actually talk a good game. I just never seem to be shrewd enough to heed my own advice! Anyway, as Billy […]

Arsenal and Birmingham in talks over Scott Dann

Posted  August 11, 2011  by  CG

Arsenal have reportedly opened preliminary talks with Birmingham City over a move for central defender Scott Dann. Despite Birmingham being relegated to the Championship last season, Dann and Roger Johnson won plenty of admirers for the impressive defensive partnership they struck up.

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 7

Posted  October 6, 2012  by  CG

So last week, backing the Merseyside clubs proved to be fairly lucrative, particularly if you brought in either Luis Suárez (£8.4m) or Nikica Jelavić (£9.5m). In recommending Everton and Liverpool last gameweek, we also had one eye on their respective fixtures against Wigan and Stoke this weekend. And although Chelsea meet Spurs in gameweek 8, while West Brom […]

Vincent Kompany and Glen Johnson: consistent inconsistency. New rules are needed

Posted  January 13, 2012  by  CG

Both challenges were good, clean tackles, with the defenders winning 100 per cent of the ball. No complaints from the players on the receiving end as well there shouldn’t have been. There was more danger of Andy Carroll and Fernando Torres battling it out for the Golden Boot than anyone getting hurt from those tackles. […]

Sergio Ramos drops a clanger

Posted  April 21, 2011  by  CG

In recent seasons, several teams have been accused of showing a lack of respect for domestic cup competitions. Whether it’s the top teams resting their star players for Champions League ties or managers at the bottom end of the table saving their senior squad members for crucial league matches, the FA and League cups have […]
