International Break is Over! Bring on Gameweek 9

October 16, 2015 3:58 pm England-v-Estonia

Key injuries/suspensions Without even playing a game, Liverpool have endured 10 days from hell after losing both Joe Gomez and Danny Ings to cruciate knee ligament injuries, plus Jordan Rossiter. Both are expected to be out for the foreseeable future and could well miss the rest of the season as they recover. Manchester City also had a tough fortnight, with Sergio Aguero and David Silva both ruled out for the next few weeks. Aleksandar Kolarov will also be missing for the leaders’ clash with Bournemouth. Dow and out: David Silva is out of action this weekend Tim Krul was another to be struck down by the dreaded cruciate knee curse, becoming the...

NEW European Super League – Budget Buys!

October 15, 2015 4:08 pm Arsenal-v-Manchester-United-Premier-League

Here we take a look through some of the most effective European Super League points grabbers, who won’t break the bank. Goalkeeper – £5.7m Roman Bürki – Borussia Dortmund Leaving aside their horror 5-1 thrashing by Bayern, Dortmund have had a positive start to the German season, currently lying in 2nd place, and Bürki looks like he could cement a place in between the posts. If the agile Swiss international can regain his confidence, he could prove to be a bargain. Defender – £5.6m Jonathan Tah – Bayer Leverkusen Leverkusen look to have one of the soundest defences in the...

Here’s the FiT Godfather’s ESL Team

October 6, 2015 4:18 pm Photo-06-10-2015-10-12-08

Picking a fantasy football team is hard enough at the best of times, but picking only 11 players from the star-studded teams in the Fantasy iTeam European Super League is almost impossible. As a veteran of many a fantasy game though, I had a plan. My initial thinking was that in any fantasy game, strikers cost a premium and this is no different. Therefore my front three of Ibrahimovic (£8.3m), Aguero (£8.1m) and Lewandowski (£8.4m) used up a sizeable chunk of the game’s £75m transfer fund. Goals do win games though, and those three have scored bucketfuls in the last...

European football occupied attentions this week, with fortunes split north to south.

Some big games this weekend: Arsenal vs Manchester United and the Merseyside derby.

Gameweek 5 Round-up

September 15, 2015 4:44 pm Everton-vs-Chelsea

Steven Naismith might not be the most glamorous of Fantasy iTeam players but managers who selected him were handsomely rewarded on Gameweek 5. The Everton attacker did not even start his team’s match against Chelsea but an early injury to Muhammed Besic gave Naismith his chance and he took it, striking a perfect hat-trick as his side beat Jose Mourinho’s men comfortably. That meant Naismith racked up a massive 16 points for the Gameweek and incredibly, he only had four points from four games prior to this weekend’s action. Teammate Ross Barkley was also in fine form, scoring eight points...

Gameweek 4 – The FiT Godfather’s Picks

August 27, 2015 4:48 pm Everton-v-Manchester-City-Premier-League

A mixed week for the Godfather picks last time out. Romero, Azpilicueta, Kompany, Mahrez, Redmond, Gomis and Costa all scored well, but there were a few let-downs – Cresswell (what was he thinking?), Payet, Depay, Silva, Aguero and Benteke all disappointed. Here’s the picks for the upcoming weekend. The eleven players featured below cost less than £75.0m in total, so if you’ve only just joined us or want to create an additional iTeam to have a better chance at winning the weekly prize – a video games package worth £150 – then you could could pick something very similar. Goalkeeper:...
