FiT Bargain Hunter By Tom Kurvits

December 12, 2013 11:01 am

After some interesting results in GameWeek 15, I thought I’d take a look at some potential bargains for you to make up your FiT 11 with. A lot of us are struggling for funds after bringing in the big guns. Everton I think everyone is slightly surprised at how well Everton are doing at the moment. I expected Arsenal to beat them on Sunday afternoon, but the toffees seem to look a better proposition every week. It’s an obvious one here but Ross Barkley is pretty good, eh? Roberto Martinez is promising to give him more games too, so I...

Ben Worrall’s December Picks

November 29, 2013 11:38 am

Hello All, A few tips: – Always plan transfers at least 2-3 weeks ahead. The more weeks you can plan ahead, the better. – Always look at the run of fixtures each team has coming up in the Gameweeks ahead. – Follow @fantasyiteam on twitter for team line-ups. They are posted about an hour before kick-off, so always look at the line-ups before making transfers. This way you will have players that will definitely play and score you points.

November 11, 2013 4:43 pm

A much tougher GW. You only needed 78 points to place in this weeks Credit Comp Pro. Fleece us all Preece was the main man again. His iTeam ‘LFC MINTY’, had a very good week.

EPL Manager of The Week: Gameweek 11

November 11, 2013 4:16 pm

What a tough week… Sunday wasn’t the best day for most of us. Our Betfred Manager of the Week, A V B, scored the majority of his points on Saturday. His iTeam, FC * 20, managed to break the 100 point barrier. 101 was enough to secure the win. Remarkably his team only scored 4 goals and created just 4 assists. What is even more remarkable, is the fact that A V B only joined FiT this week. Not a bad first GW. Very well done. 7 teams kept clean sheets in GW11. At least 3 of those were a...

November 4, 2013 4:06 pm

The points keep coming… Goalkeepers are scoring, defenders are having a turn in net, it’s all happening… You needed at least 96 points to place in this weeks Credit Comps. Super ‘I’m sooo Rich’ Don was the main man. His iTeam ‘Tragic Sparrows’, had a seriously good week. Don won the ‘Comp Challenge’ and finished runner up in the ‘Comp Pro’. He walks away with over 8,500 F/c. Nice work. Jonas Holtenius was our GW10 F/c Comp Pro winner with a massive score of 118 points. If only you had entered the other comp as well… Poor Jonas lost out on the...

EPL Manager of The Week: Gameweek 10

November 4, 2013 2:46 pm

Another gameweek comes and goes. It was another high scoring one and was won by David Young. 115 points was enough for David’s iTeam ‘SUPER VILLA’ to secure the GW10 Betfred Manager of the Week. Congratulations. 10 different teams managed to keep clean sheets over the weekend. David relied upon Hugo ‘I’m not going off’ Lloris, Demel, Baines, Walker and Zabaleta. None of them let him down. David’s midfield wasn’t actually that strong. Cazorla and Januzaj were the only players to score him some attacking points. With this forward line who needs a midfield… David used his extra transfer wisely...

October 31, 2013 1:53 pm

The October credit comps are over and by the looks of the results we have one clear winner. Rob Wright is literally swimming in FiT credits. With 5 placings out of the 15 available, he’s got to be happy. Rob managed to win just over 20,000 F/c. His biggest win was in the October F/c Gold Cup. Well played Rob. Will you be creating a few new iTeam’s for November? Robert ‘the rich’ Preece won the October 75 F/c comp. He just does it for the crack, it’s not like he needs the credits… The Godfather mentioned you fleeced him out of...

EPL Manager of The Month: October

October 31, 2013 12:40 pm

266 points was enough for Lee Valdo to win the Betfred Manager of The Month prize. Lee’s iTeam ‘Average White Army’ has had a great season so far and this is Lee’s 2nd prize win. One of Lee’s other iTeam’s, ‘Sharnley FC’, currently sits at the top of the 13/14 Betfred World Championship. James Dash will be very worried… Very well played. Lee had 18 different players in October. His defence rarely changed though. Boruc, Lovren, Reid and Vertonghen, all had a solid month. Reid was the stand out performer, with 2 clean sheets and a goal in the 3...
