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 24

The FA cup weekend threw up more shocks than you could shake a stick at. Everton's set piece confusion led to a mauling at the hands of the Lions while West Ham were also bitten by...the Wombles? Spurs continued a horrible week, meaning it'll almost certainly be another trophyless season for Poch and co. The … Continue reading Differential Potential – Gameweek 24

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 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

Go-lovin’ and Uruguay stackin’ – How Day 1 should effect your World Cup Fantasy lineup

As the great Robbie Williams once sung: "I've taken as much as I'm willing to take." These are lyrics that Saudi Arabia could very much relate to after going 12 rounds with the footballing equivalent of Nikolai Valuev on Day One of the World Cup. Many pessimists (and realists) predicted a scoreless bore draw to … Continue reading Go-lovin’ and Uruguay stackin’ – How Day 1 should effect your World Cup Fantasy lineup
