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 […]

Fantasy Premier League tips – Gameweek 15

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 […]

The Premier League is United’s, but let’s not blame Tevez

Posted  March 16, 2012  by  CG

Manchester City meet Manchester United at Eastlands on April 30 in a game that many are predicting will be a title showdown. But the league could well be United’s by then. Obviously, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won’t want to get complacent, but it’d be astonishing if they fail to take maximum points from their next […]

Wycombe’s 15 year old booked for goal celebration… The FA should take a look at these “offences”

Posted  October 31, 2011  by  GM

For a 15 year old making his first competitive league start it’s a big day, massive in fact.  Not just for himself but also his family who would have put countless hours and pounds into developing him into the player he has become.  Enter Jordan Ibe who not only made his first senior start but […]

Manchester City should welcome Carlos Tevez with open arms

Posted  February 14, 2012  by  CG

Why? Because he’s a great player. This saga has gone on for too long now and it’s time to say enough is as good as the proverbial eight course banquet. If Manchester City want to win the Premier League, they’d be wise to utilise their best players. It really is as simple as that. He’s […]

Scrap relegation? Why not appoint Steve McClaren as England manager while you’re at it?

Posted  October 19, 2011  by  CG

In the words of John McEnroe, you cannot be serious. Even Derby County probably wouldn’t have wanted relegation to be abolished during their miserable 2007-08 campaign. While the relegated clubs must miss the money that comes with top flight football, surely it can’t be much fun getting turned over 6-0 every week? Suggesting that relegation […]

Another award on the cards for Barcelona

Posted  May 31, 2012  by  CG

They’ve won every competition there is to win. But after coming up short against José Mourinho’s Real Madrid in the league and losing against Chelsea in the Champions League, Barcelona have joined Manchester United in entering the Crappest Football Strip of the Season contest. Just what was the designer of this monstrosity thinking?! They must […]

Posted  April 27, 2012  by  CG

Last week’s post contained tips for Gameweeks 35 and 36, so this is just a little reminder about the extra fixtures. Eight teams will be “enjoying” a double header during gameweek 36 and most seasoned fantasy football players will have long since begun putting the wheels in motion for this one, unless of course you’re […]

I could win the presidency of FIFA if I was the only candidate..

Posted  June 1, 2011  by  GM

A tip to any politician, take a note from FIFA.  Sometimes, when you aren’t sure if you are going to win an election, quickly have your main rivals removed from the running and/or suspended so that they cannot win any votes.  That way you are guaranteed to win as you are the only man to […]
