World Cup Group A Preview – by Ben Harrison

June 5, 2014 11:09 am

Despite this group being one of the most looked upon, due to it containing the host nation, I am going to try and keep it as balanced and easy to follow as possible. So, obviously there is a huge expectation on Brazil, who have not had much success in recent tournaments. But with many tipping this to be their year, I am not sure it is that straight forward, and many others are saying they will either ‘flop/win, with there being no middle ground, and I would have to agree with them. Just a quick reminder of the 3 opening...

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...

It’s here – The Final Gameweek

May 8, 2014 2:56 pm

The 13/14 Premier League winner will be decided this Sunday. Manchester City only need to draw against West Ham to secure the title. Liverpool could still swoop in and land it for themselves –  a win vs Newcastle, and a loss for Manchester City, would see them crowned champions instead. All 10 EPL games kick off at 3pm. At the other end of the league everything is pretty much done and dusted. For Norwich to perform the greatest ever escape, they would need to win about 17-0 and West Brom would need to lose. It’s not going to happen! So,...

Making the Most of the final 3 Gameweeks

April 24, 2014 2:20 pm

Hi All, Firstly there is something really important that you all need to know. There are a few basics that make this game easier to play and will ultimately score you more points. For example, the obvious ones include: use your extra transfer, wait until a player plays before removing him and then put someone else in once the line-ups are announced about an hour before kick-off. There are many others that are far more subtle that give people an extra edge, but here is not the place to divulge them. There is something else that seems to be creeping...

Ben Randall – The Record Breaking Gameweek

March 27, 2014 12:18 pm

A double gameweek always meant there would be goals but to expect this many was beyond anyone’s prediction! Chelsea Vs Arsenal;- 6-0 The gameweek started off with Arsene Wenger celebrating his 1000th game in charge of the gunners, but the special one had plans to make this day not so great for Wenger. After their easy victory against the Turkish side Galatasary, Chelsea were still on a high and going 2 nil up inside just 10 minutes at Stamford Bridge things couldn’t have got any better.. surely? It wouldn’t be a Chelsea Vs Arsenal game without some sort of controversy...

Prepare for Gameweek 31 – Dare to be different?

March 13, 2014 1:14 pm

With the biggest gameweek ever right around the corner, I thought it was time to look at some of the less obvious picks. If you’re sitting at the top of a mini league then you will probably be happy sticking with the tried and tested players, but if you’re chasing it’s the perfect time to take a risk or 2… remember, it’s also Bonus Transfer week, so make full use of them. Goalkeepers Adrian – 3.3m He took over from Jussi at Christmas and since then he’s firmly established himself as number 1… keeping 5 clean sheets in his last...
