Differential Potential: Gameweek 31

This week's a difficult one for differentials and for FPL in general. With only five games out of the normal ten to choose from, some names that are, let's say, "not household" ones will be more popular than normal in lineups this Saturday. Here's who has made it on to our Differential XI teamsheet: Goalkeeper … Continue reading Differential Potential: Gameweek 31

Differential Potential – Gameweek 25

Following a huge return in GW23, the midweek representatives didn't quite cut it in GW24. The disappearance of Ainsley Maitland Niles hardly helped while it'd have been better for us if Lewis Dunk had stayed at home. Here's the GW25 differentials looking to break that magical 100 point mark once more. Goalkeeper Tom Heaton (33% … Continue reading Differential Potential – Gameweek 25

Differential Potential – Gameweek 17

A busy schedule had meant an extended rest for the Differential XI. This week they're back with a bang. The current Newcastle number nine has finally made way for someone who used to fill out the famous jersey. No, not Shearer. Here's the Differential Potential's latest offering. Goalkeeper I fancy Rui Patricio for a few … Continue reading Differential Potential – Gameweek 17

Draft Ranks – Top 100

My overall top 100 ranks. Not much else to say that hasn't been already. Draft mids, draft forwards, don't draft a 'keeper (CERTAINLY not in the first 15 rounds!). Good luck and enjoy drafting your way to glory! NOTE: Due to my belief that he will leave this summer, I failed to (forgot to) rank … Continue reading Draft Ranks – Top 100

Draft Rankings – Forwards

Elite Picks Mo Salah: A more than valid first pick of the whole draft. Due to the shortage of elite midfielders this year, I'd probably pick Kevin De Bruyne over the Egyptian King (just) but no one will scoff if you decide to plump for last year's FPL top scorer. All eyes will be on Salah … Continue reading Draft Rankings – Forwards

Draft Rankings – Top 50 defenders

Elite Picks Cesar Azpilicueta takes top spot for me but in truth, we aren't sure exactly what role he will play in Sarri's Chelsea. Many (myself included) believe the new boss will ditch the 3-4-3 system in favour of a 4-3-3, last season's second highest scoring defender in the Togga format may even gain value … Continue reading Draft Rankings – Top 50 defenders

Bournemouth – FPL 2018/19 Season Preview

Last Year If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s to Eddie Howe and his team’s credit that Bournemouth are now considered a mainstay in the top flight due to consecutive solid finishes of 9th and 12th. Last year may be seen as a slight backwards after hitting the heady heights of the top half … Continue reading Bournemouth – FPL 2018/19 Season Preview

Arsenal – FPL 2018/19 Season Preview

Last Year Wasn’t the best, meaning that the unthinkable has happened and Arsenal are starting a Premier League season without Arsene Wenger at the helm. Many will say it was only a matter of time, and they’re probably right, but it still feels odd, especially because the new manager’s name sounds nothing like “Arsenal”. Unai … Continue reading Arsenal – FPL 2018/19 Season Preview

World Cup Fantasy League: Looking ahead to Gameweek 2

Fantasy football is the only reason I have paused my playlist entitled “world in motion” for the first time since Harry Kane’s dramatic late winner against Tunisia in the first group game. What a first gameweek it has been with several of the big boys failing to register three points (or even one point in … Continue reading World Cup Fantasy League: Looking ahead to Gameweek 2

Late heroics and a familiar hero – Day Two review

“Ronaldo isn’t even a free kick specialist, people just think he is because the ones that go in look really good. This one’s going into the wall...” is what I said to my father-in-law in the 88th minute of this evening’s match. I used to think I knew a thing or two about football. If … Continue reading Late heroics and a familiar hero – Day Two review
