FiT News & Tips for GW29

March 8, 2013 10:46 am

Well GW28 was interesting, goals galore this week and QPR get a vital win that could yet start a revival. Chelsea 1-0 West Brom This was more one sided than the score might suggest, Chelsea were the dominant team for much of the game, and were unlucky not to have won this by more. The Chelsea fans are still up for a Benitez bashing; will this help or hinder the rest of the season for them? West Brom will be glad to get Lukaku back for next week’s game, as they look to consolidate a mid-table position. Everton 3-1 Reading Everton got...

The Dashman Prepares for GW28

February 28, 2013 9:53 am

Hello All Let’s start by having a quick look back at last week. The problem we all had was that Liverpool and Swansea didn’t play. Most managers had several of their players in their teams. So did you get rid of players from these 2 sides early, or wait until the line-ups for the weekend’s games came out? If your team was tight on money (like my main team) perhaps doing it early was best, as their value could drop by up to 0.2 mil (as in the case of Suarez), due to everyone selling them. But you had to...

Super Don prepares for GW27

February 22, 2013 10:42 am

GW26 Review Spurs 2-1 Newcastle Starting without a recognised striker worked Spain in the Euro’s and it worked for Spurs here too, with Defoe injured and Adebayor in no great rush to get back to White Hart Lane Spurs had little option to start with Dempsey in the lone striker role. Two goals from Bale and an assist from Dempsey got lots of fantasy managers of to a great start in GW26, Gouffran equalised for Newcastle with Sissoko picking up the assist, two potentially great low value to keep an eye on in the coming weeks. Chelsea 4-1 Wigan Chelsea...

Only you can decide! Even...

4) Scoring Points are awarded based on real-life games. Let’s say you’ve got a Chelsea forward in your iTeam – If Chelsea play and that player makes the starting line-up, he will be awarded two points for your iTeam. You will see that defenders and midfielders receive slightly more points for scoring a goal than forwards do.  Here is a breakdown of points: Starting Line-up: 2Substitute Appearance: 1Goal – Defenders: 7Goal – Midfielders: 6Goal – Forwards: 5Assist: 3Sending off: -5 5) Gameweeks To break up the season we have 38 gameweeks.

FiT Coach Alan Davey focuses on GW17

December 13, 2012 1:49 pm

Gameweek 17 already, I am already starting to worry about what I will do this summer. Everything gets a little hectic from now on. Chances of postponed games and lots of player rotation during the busy Christmas schedule.  First up we have Newcastle hosting Manchester City at 12.45 this Saturday. It would be fair to say that both teams aren’t really enjoying the season so far. I don’t foresee any cautious play in this one and I think there will be quite a few goals in it. Well, there will be if Maniluvbalocini actually starts Tevez instead of Ijustwannabeonthetelli. You shouldn’t...

Andy Dengate’s take on Gameweek 16

December 6, 2012 9:04 am

Hello from a personal view my gameweek started terribly, nothing to do with having Ivanovic but the fact that I planned to go round my mates to watch The Hammers stuff Chelsea till my misses sprung on me that we was going to Tesco’s, missed probably the best 45 minutes of football I’ll see this season! I wouldn’t have thought many people would have scored many points in the  West Ham v Chelsea game, surely no one is silly enough to have Carlton Cole in their iTeams. After being on the bench against Fulham, Mata shows why he should be...
