EPL Returns for 14/15 – By James Dash

August 11, 2014 9:52 am

Well the season is about to start after the most enjoyable World Cup for decades, and I for one can’t wait. As managers, this is the time we should be tinkering with our teams and creating new ones. This year, I believe it will much harder to win the whole thing or even get a top 100 finish, due to the fact that most of the top fantasy managers have loads of teams. This app is so addictive that having more teams just increases the fun and the frustration! Pre-season is therefore a much busier time for all of us....

World Cup – Big Names Blog (Part 2) by Ben Randall

June 5, 2014 4:11 pm

Here’s part 2 of my group by group run-down of some of the big name players I’m currently considering for my squad. I’ve tried to include a few differentials, as the likes of Neymar, Robben, Reus and Oscar will already be in many an iTeam. Group E: Switzerland, Ecuador, France & Honduras: Goalkeeper France, Hugo Lloris – Club: Totthenham Hotspur – International Caps: 55 Caps – Value: 5.8M. I was expecting a few clean sheets bonuses from this man, but after watching Ecuador last night I’m a little worried. Still, he’s a great Goalkeeper and he’s nailed on. Defender Switzerland,...

One More Title Twist? By Gregg Livingstone

May 1, 2014 9:45 am

Hi guys, So, it’s the penultimate gameweek and with the champions and relegated teams still undecided it really has been one of the best seasons in years. Manchester City play Everton, and a win for City would give them a giant advantage towards the title. If they slip up then Liverpool could take advantage and Chelsea could still sneak in and pinch it. All very exciting! With any of the bottom 8 still in the relegation mix, the lower end of the table is just as exciting. Remember guys that 6 teams play twice this gameweek so be sure to...

Ben’s Bargains – £75m Well Spent!

March 20, 2014 3:18 pm

Gameweek 31, quite possibly the most exciting and potentially frustrating GW this season. Now unfortunately I can’t give you a huge list of players to bring in, because if you have not started preparing by now, your Gameweek 31 could be a poor one! All is not lost however! Unlike some double game weeks there is still chance to buy ‘DGW’ (double gameweek) players during the actual game week. We can either sell Chelsea players for: Liverpool, Everton, Swansea, Hull, Man City, Newcastle, Sunderland. In addition, we can also sell players from the 3 o’clock game to buy Man United or...

It’s Tight at the Top by Gregg Livingstone

January 31, 2014 12:25 pm

Hi dudes, gameweek 24 is upon us and it’s tight at the top of the FiT world championship. Topping the league is Super Don with 1678 points, that’s an impressive average of 72.9 points per gameweek. In second is the legend James Dash with 1672 points and third is Mark Cowles with 1648. Just check out the trophy cabinets of these 3 FiT veterans ……incredible!! With my top team totalling 1366 points, that’s an average of 59.3 points per week. I have a lot to do in the remaining months. Luis Suarez remains the top points scorer overall. 22 goals...

Lots of Football, Lots of FiT By Mr Bennables

December 19, 2013 10:47 am

When my nine year old nephew asked me if I wanted a game of football, I took the dubious risk of dusting off my 20 year old Adidas Beckenbauer’s, after doing a couple of strained stretches and one squat, the little bugger shouted at me from his bedroom that he had loaded FIFA on the playstation!…….hmm…. Times have certainly changed….FIT managers of a certain age will remember when, football was played anywhere, anytime with anything, game consoles didn’t register, Ten rules we then used. 1. The fattest one is always the goalkeeper. 2. The kid who owns the ball decides...

EPL Manager of The Week: Gameweek 9

October 28, 2013 3:16 pm

Another high scoring GW. You needed at least 99 points to make the top 100. It was Paul Reed who secured the GW9 Betfred Manager of the Week. 115 points was enough for Paul’s iTeam ‘Pang United’ to win. Congratulations. Normal service resumed for Southampton. Boruc managed his 6th shut out of the season. Paul also received clean sheet bonuses for Shaw, Vertonghen and Mertesacker. Midfielders struggled this week. Only 5 midfielders managed to score. 2 of them came off the bench and another got himself sent off. Ben Arfa and Ramsey contributed to Paul’s points total with an assist...

EPL Manager of The Week: Gameweek 8

October 24, 2013 2:05 pm

That was a fun week… Only 3 points separated the top 5. It was Kevin Chew who secured the GW8 Betfred Manager of the Week. 120 points was enough for Kevin’s iTeam ‘Sword Fighters F.C’ to win. Congratulations. It was a tough week for defenders and clean sheets were hard to come by. Even the mighty Southampton conceded. Kevin picked up defensive points from Dawson, Walker and Chico. 24 points between them wasn’t a bad haul. There were some very strong midfield performances in GW8. Kevin didn’t need Ozil, Cabaye, Ruiz or Silva. He went with Hazard, Mirallas, Gerrard, Ramsey...
