World Cup Group D Preview – by Matthew Williams

May 28, 2014 11:57 am

World Cup Group D Preview Group D is a tough one to call, with Italy, England, Uruguay and Costa Rica. You would expect 2 of the big 3 in the group to qualify, with the games against Costa Rica pretty much guaranteeing 3 points for each of them. If you look at their form through the qualifiers you would have to say that Italy and England are the favourites to make it out of the group, but Uruguay, with so much attacking talent, cannot be written off, so I expect the games between Italy, England and Uruguay to be very...

World Cup Group F Preview – by Dale Henderson

May 25, 2014 2:40 pm

The group consists of Argentina, Nigeria, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran. On paper it seems like perennial underachievers, Argentina, will dominate the group, with Bosnia- Herzegovina and Nigeria fighting it out for second place and Carlos Queiroz’s Iran expected to be the group whipping boys. Although, at the World Cup things do not always go to plan. I would expect Argentina to win all three of their matches, they have an embarrassment of riches upfront and haven’t even brought Carlos Tevez. It will be the battle for second spot that will be the intriguing one in this group, which is expected to...

Champions League Final: Can Atletico do the double

May 22, 2014 3:07 pm

The 13/14 Champions League winner will be decided this Saturday evening. After securing the La Liga with a draw at Barcelona, Atletico could pull off one of the shock doubles of all time… Diego Simeone deserves a lot of credit – taking over back in 2011-12, things didn’t look too good. But he worked his magic, and in his first full season in charge of the club, he won the Europa League and achieved a 5th place La Liga finish. The season after was even better – a 3rd place finish and the Copa del Rey secured. Fast forward to...

Well here it is,the World Cup is almost upon us, and with the exception of Ibra and Bale the best players in the world will all be on show for what promises to be a great month of football.

Well, with that in mind I have put together my top 10 players that could be worth a look this summer, these players...

A Look at Gameweek 28 By Rob Wright

February 28, 2014 11:35 am

Well that was the week that was…. The top 4 have taken a big step towards confirming who will be in the Champions League next season; Spurs, Everton and Man Utd will still have hopes of catching them but it seems unlikely now. So the question is which one will end up top of the pile. I said Chelsea at the beginning of the season and the moment there’s nothing to change my mind. Over the next couple of weeks they have the chance to pull away with Man City and Arsenal missing games due to cup commitments, them and...

Easterbrook Shares his FiT Knowledge

January 24, 2014 10:12 am

Hi Everyone Welcome to this week’s blog, since my last blog thing have gone from bad to worse for me, my best team languishing in 1600 place. It’s that time of the season, 16 game weeks to go where we give up on our title dreams, just like United.  I’ve made some shocking decisions this season, none better than putting in Vidic just before he scored his -6 against Chelsea. I had predicted 0-0 for that match and then an easy game against Cardiff in the first round of games this week. I should have listened to Mr Dash and...

Dashman’s Words of Wisdom

January 10, 2014 11:45 am

Hi All Hope you had a fantastic Christmas and a memorable New Year. I also hope the relations didn’t get in the way of the football too much! So we are now more than half way through the season and these are a few things we now know:- Man Utd are not going to win the league. Man Utd will struggle to finish in the top 4. Suarez should be captain every week. Fulham are going to get relegated and/or West Ham. Rotation is rubbish. Holding mid-fielders are pointless in the fantasy world. Kevin Nolan is mental. The FA cup...
