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...

FiT Legend Andy Dengate Previews GW17

December 18, 2014 3:53 pm

Hello, This is the first time I’ve ever wrote a blog for FiT when it actually looks like I know what I’m talking about. I’m well known for being less useful than a chocolate tea pot, and points for my iTeam are normally as rare as rocking horse … But today I come here to talk to you while sitting pretty in the top 100, yeah, I still can’t believe it either !! I felt too cool for cats racking up 73 points last week, but looking back, I can’t see where from … I made a rookie mistake & sold...

Rob Wright Previews GW16

December 11, 2014 3:52 pm

Well I don’t know about you guys, but my challenge for the title has fallen before Xmas, I haven’t given up hope yet for a monthly or weekly prize though and am in the process of setting my teams up for a New Year challenge.  So for any of you that are in the same boat get planning for those monthly and weekly wins. Now I do like a bargain, but as I’ve kinda done that to death I though you guys might like facts on the season so far, it might just help with some decision making that needs to...

Matthew Williams GW 13 Preview

November 27, 2014 10:05 am Stoke Celebrate

A third of the way into this season and it looks like Chelsea have got the league wrapped up already thanks to the inconsistency of the likes of Man City and Arsenal, two teams who you would of expected to at least challenge. Liverpool have fallen apart, Spurs are nowhere to be seen and Man Utd can’t defend for toffee, although there are signs of improvement there, you feel it would be too late for them to mount a challenge. Things are looking quite different at the bottom end of the table with just 5 points between West Brom in...

Gregg’s Gameweek 12 Preview

November 20, 2014 10:23 am

Gameweek 12 is almost upon us and with nearly a third of the season gone it’s been an interesting season thus far. Chelsea remain top with surprise package Southampton just behind them. Arsenal, Man Utd, Everton, Liverpool and Spurs have all been underachieving and the 3 newly promoted teams occupy the relegation zone. Needless to say, I’m doing terribly again. My highest scoring team has a mediocre 570 points. My reason for doing so badly is my ability to pick a captain who can’t do anything. It really is a gift. Since Luis Suarez left for pastures new, I’m at...

Captain Dan looks at GW11

November 6, 2014 11:18 am

Hey all you FIT addicts, I don’t think I’ve ever been this nervous about anything before – this is my first ever blog, so I hope you all enjoy it. What a gameweek it was in GW10, some teams were good, some were OK, and some were really bad. But I had the best end to a horrible Saturday’s football for most of my teams – the birth of my second daughter 🙂 born at 9:10pm. But let’s not look back, it’s all about gameweek 11. The hardest choice for us fantasy mangers is who to pick as captain, as...

The Bargain Hunter – Rob Wright

October 30, 2014 10:21 am

Week 10 already…… it only seems like yesterday that we were all tinkering with our teams and saying how confident we were that this was our year to take down James Dash. Well I’m not sure how many of you are still felling the same, but I am certainly not one of them. This year, more than any other, seems to be very hard to predict in terms of who will score points and against which teams. Like my beloved Spurs team, I’m calling this another “transitional” year. On the plus side there has been some bright lights this year,...
