Perfect your Scheduled Transfers

August 10, 2016 3:44 pm Newsfeed

To be a successful fantasy football manager, you must always have one eye on the key statistics. Take stock of the important figures from last year… The 2015/2016 Premier League season was truly remarkable. Not only did Leicester City march to an astonishing first league title, laughing in the face of 5000/1 odds, but we also saw the re-emergence of Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United as major players in the division.
