Tonight’s Transfer Tips

March 4, 2015 10:19 am sturridge sterling liverpoolFC

You may have noticed that the majority of games kick off at 19:45, with Liverpool and Burnley playing at 20:00. Here are some of tonight’s transfer tips. If you want to take out a player playing at 19:45 for a player playing at 20:00, you can do this and score points for both, but you have to time it right. The ideal time to make this sort of transfer is between 19:40 and 19:45, though technically speaking you can make the transfers any time between 19:36 and 19:49. Our in-app transfer clock will let you know how long you have...

What is a Double Gameweek?

March 2, 2015 6:55 am video-undefined-229C6B5200000578-647_638x376

A common Fantasy Football phrase, but for many of us, a confusing one. A Double Gameweek is when a team plays twice in the same Gameweek. This can happen when a match is postponed and re-arranged for a future date. If you fire up the FiT app, visit the Match Centre, and check out the current Gameweek (31), you will see that QPR and Aston Villa play both today and Tuesday. So, what does that mean for us? It could mean mega points… Double Gameweek rules: Usual rules apply. Players have to be in your iTeam 10 minutes before kick...

Super Steve’s take on Gameweek 27

February 26, 2015 2:04 pm Davids strike on goal

Blogging is not my thing really, but I thought I’d put myself forward to try and explain a bit about Gameweek 27 and the end of another month. I’ll try to help others win the February Manager of the Month rosette, as I’ve clearly failed! I tried to set my teams up for the bonus start in Gameweek 23 – the start of the Feb MoM as the Sunday was February 1st. Arsenal 5-0 Aston Villa & Southampton 0-1 Swansea. If you captained Cazorla, you were off to a flier. In Gameweek 27 the month ends this Saturday, as the...

Yaya’s Back!!! Rob takes a look at Gameweek 26

February 19, 2015 2:20 pm

So here we are in Week 26, and it’s ‘squeaky bum’ time at the bottom of the league – there’s also a lot of tussling going on at the top. At this moment it’s anybody’s guess who’s going to finish in the top 4 or the dreaded bottom 3. I think there are going to be a lot of twists and turns in the coming weeks, and I think its going to be the most exciting finish to a Premier League season in years. I like sticking my neck out, so I’ll make some predictions for the end of the...

The Champions League Returns

February 13, 2015 5:03 pm apuestas-futbol-liga

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Don’t worry if your Champions League iTeam is full of players that didn’t make it through to the knockout stages, you currently have unlimited free transfers to refresh your squad. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive 3 free and 1 optional transfer to use as soon as the unlimited period ends on Tuesday at 19:35 (GMT). The first thing you need to do is visit the in-app Match Centre. Gameround 7 covers 2 calendar weeks, so when you do get your allocated transfers, don’t blow them too early – you won’t receive more...

Gameweek 25 Midweek Transfers

February 9, 2015 10:56 am Harry Kane

You may have noticed that the Tuesday and Wednesday night games kick off at different times. The majority of fixtures kick off at 19:45, but 3 of them kick off at 20:00. If you want to take out a player playing at 19:45 for a player playing at 20:00 on the same day, you can do this and still score points for both players. The ideal time to make this sort of transfer is between 19:40 and 19:45, though technically speaking you can make the transfers any time between 19:36 and 19:49. Our in-app transfer clock will let you know...

Mr Meadows’ take on Gameweek 24

February 5, 2015 11:19 am Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Fifteen Gameweek’s to go. This week brings SIX transfer deadline’s meaning plenty of opportunity to get the best out of your iteam’s. Whether you need to stick with the most-picked players to stay ahead or if you need to take a gamble in order to make ground, this Gameweek not only offers some interesting matches but also opens up those strategic plans. COMMON OVERVIEW :- Many teams will already be loaded with Arsenal players and will look at selling after the early KO to bring in either Chelsea or Man City. Maybe both. Sturridge is the next obvious destination before...

The EPL is back!!! Gregg Previews GW23

January 29, 2015 1:57 pm man-city-v-chelsea-4

With only 15 games to go, things are hotting up in the league. Gameweek 23 sees the top 2 battling it out on Saturday evening with Chelsea looking to extend their lead at the top and Manchester City desperate to claw back the deficit. Diego Costa remains the highest point’s scorer of the season so far with 129. I wouldn’t have predicted that based on his performances at the World Cup! Next thing, someone will be telling me he’s only 26 years old! Definitely had a tough paper round. Dawn D is in top spot in the FiT World Championship...

FiT previews Gameweek 22

January 15, 2015 2:55 pm Sergio+Aguero+Alexis+Sanchez+Arsenal+v+Manchester+F0P8jV50cTTl

We’ll start with some interesting stats courtesy of Aston Villa have scored just 1 goal in their last 6 games. After 21 matches, Moyes’ shots per game average last season was 13.4. Under Van Gaal, the average is 12.5. Man Utd had 37 points at this stage last season, they have exactly the same amount this time around. Wilfried Bony averages a goal every 151 minutes and was the top EPL scorer in 2014. Alexis Sanchez has made more tackles this season than most of his Arsenal team mates – Flamini is the only player to make more. Yaya...

FiT Looks ahead to 2015

January 8, 2015 3:56 pm

A New Year begins and we’ve also just passed the season half-way point – there’s plenty happening in 2015. First up, we have the Asia Cup and the African Cup of Nations to contend with. As usual, the timing of these international competitions isn’t ideal for a host of Premier League clubs and, more importantly, us Fantasy Football managers. You may have noticed a new in-app icon being used – the yellow circle with the black cross symbol means a player is either away on international duty or, in Sebastian Coates’ case, in-eligible to play against their parent club. So...
