EPL Credit Competition Winners: Gameweek 10

November 4, 2013 4:06 pm

The points keep coming… Goalkeepers are scoring, defenders are having a turn in net, it’s all happening… You needed at least 96 points to place in this weeks Credit Comps. Super ‘I’m sooo Rich’ Don was the main man. His iTeam ‘Tragic Sparrows’, had a seriously good week. Don won the ‘Comp Challenge’ and finished runner up in the ‘Comp Pro’. He walks away with over 8,500 F/c. Nice work. Jonas Holtenius was our GW10 F/c Comp Pro winner with a massive score of 118 points. If only you had entered the other comp as well… Poor Jonas lost out on the...

EPL Manager of The Week: Gameweek 10

November 4, 2013 2:46 pm

Another gameweek comes and goes. It was another high scoring one and was won by David Young. 115 points was enough for David’s iTeam ‘SUPER VILLA’ to secure the GW10 Betfred Manager of the Week. Congratulations. 10 different teams managed to keep clean sheets over the weekend. David relied upon Hugo ‘I’m not going off’ Lloris, Demel, Baines, Walker and Zabaleta. None of them let him down. David’s midfield wasn’t actually that strong. Cazorla and Januzaj were the only players to score him some attacking points. With this forward line who needs a midfield… David used his extra transfer wisely...

Champions League GR4

November 4, 2013 10:52 am

Can Ibrahimovic upstage Ronnie and Messi again? There were some serious points scored in GR3. We all thought PSG would walk it. We didn’t think it would be so easy for them though. Ibra didn’t just score 4 goals, he scored 4 great goals. If you captained him you must have been well chuffed, nicely done. After being dumped by thousands of managers after he missed that penalty in GR1, the opposite is happening now. If PSG can do that to Anderlecht away from home, what can they do as hosts? The likes of Robben, Ribery and Bayern defenders, were...

Are You Ready For GW10? By Andy Dengate

October 31, 2013 3:35 pm

Hey you guys, I’ve just moved house & went to B&Q to stock up on coal & shizzle for my open fire (never had one before, little bit excited) and I’ve realised something … you don’t look at the mantel piece while poking the fire!! Let’s look at last week’s games… Palace losing to Arsenal was expected, Szczesny survives another week in my iTeam after only claiming his second clean sheet of the season. Giroud scores his 5th goal showing why his value is rising. Everton keeping a clean sheet after Benteke missing a penalty & Howard scoring an impressive...

EPL Credit Competition Winners: October

October 31, 2013 1:53 pm

The October credit comps are over and by the looks of the results we have one clear winner. Rob Wright is literally swimming in FiT credits. With 5 placings out of the 15 available, he’s got to be happy. Rob managed to win just over 20,000 F/c. His biggest win was in the October F/c Gold Cup. Well played Rob. Will you be creating a few new iTeam’s for November? Robert ‘the rich’ Preece won the October 75 F/c comp. He just does it for the crack, it’s not like he needs the credits… The Godfather mentioned you fleeced him out of...

EPL Manager of The Month: October

October 31, 2013 12:40 pm

266 points was enough for Lee Valdo to win the Betfred Manager of The Month prize. Lee’s iTeam ‘Average White Army’ has had a great season so far and this is Lee’s 2nd prize win. One of Lee’s other iTeam’s, ‘Sharnley FC’, currently sits at the top of the 13/14 Betfred World Championship. James Dash will be very worried… Very well played. Lee had 18 different players in October. His defence rarely changed though. Boruc, Lovren, Reid and Vertonghen, all had a solid month. Reid was the stand out performer, with 2 clean sheets and a goal in the 3...

Another high scoring GW. You needed at least 99 points to make the top 100. It was Paul Reed who secured the GW9 Betfred Manager of the Week. 115 points was enough for Paul’s iTeam ‘Pang United’ to win. Congratulations. Normal service resumed for Southampton.

Only 5 midfielders managed to score. 2 of them came off the bench and another got himself sent off. Ben Arfa and Ramsey contributed to Paul’s points total with an assist...

EPL Credit Competition Winners: Gameweek 9

October 28, 2013 1:12 pm

Another decent gameweek. Plenty of clean sheets, but plenty of goals as well. You needed at least 100 points to place in this weeks Credit Comps. Scary scores. Damien Davidson was the main man. His iTeam ‘Up and at em’, had a seriously good week. Winning both the ‘Comp Challenge’ and the ‘Comp Pro’, Damien walks away with over 10,000 F/c. Nice work. Colin Morton, Ben England, Super Don and Andy Wilson all profited in the Comp Challenge. In the Pro Challenge we had a few different winners. Kev Stevenson, Steve Kirkham and Konrad Bartczak helped make up the top 5....

Gameweek 9 Preview By Richard Easterbrook

October 24, 2013 4:45 pm

I love the description on the FantasyIteam blog “written by our Fantasy Football experts”. It brings a smile to my face, then a quick switch to the app and reality hits home as I look at my ever faltering teams. But all is not lost! It’s only game week nine! Ok, so I’d started game week one with a team in the top 30, 2 in the top 50, granted at this point my best team is only in 578th place but I have a plan! A plan I will share and maybe make you all think a little outside...
