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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fantasy Football tips: Gameweek 8

Posted  October 14, 2011  by  CG

A difficult one this week with not many batterers or battereees standing out. Although defending has not been a strong point of this season’s Premier League, it’s difficult to see a high scoring weekend ahead. It’s probably best to avoid making wholesale changes or spending big on anyone in particular. Safe-ish teams to go with […]

Posted  September 30, 2011  by  CG

First of all, an apology to anyone who actually listened to me and brought in Fernando Torres. It was looking good until he was sent packing. Anyway, the other advice was pretty good and I’m sure no one took any notice of my Torres recommendation so here are the latest tips… Teams with nice looking […]

Rant: BBC apologise over MOTD2 comment, apparently some people have nothing better to do than complain.

Posted  April 4, 2012  by  GM

You can understand the BBC wanting to apologise after Alan Pardew made his comments about a word that sounds like raking an opponent, it was a sensitive topic, but the latest offering is just laughable. Colin Murray who hosts the light hearted highlights show on BBC2 (well past the watershed as well) was talking about […]

Villas-Boas insists Chelsea are still title contenders. He is having his mail forwarded to Cloud Cuckoo Land

Posted  December 23, 2011  by  CG

Chelsea manager André Villas-Boas believes his side is still in contention for the Premier League title after a well earned point at White Hart Lane. Speaking after the 1-1 draw with Tottenham, the Blues boss told reporters that two home wins should see Chelsea right back in the mix. Sounds very much like the words […]
