The Dugout Discussion – Saturday

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Mark

The climax. Ten Premier League matches, all at 3pm, with the title still to be decided.

We’ve been here several times and rarely does the last day disappoint. We anticipate drama and the unexpected – ingredients that are seldom positive for Fantasy managers looking for assured clean sheets and banked returns from their captain. The final day can be a lottery – that’s why we love it.

Attentions will, of course, be focused on the Etihad and Anfield, where City and Liverpool will look to seal the points that should and could, respectively, win them the title. We’ll also have one eye tracking the progress at the top of the Fantasy Premier League, as Fantasy Football Scout member, Tom Fenley, looks to fend off his challengers to claim his own crown. It’s going to be tense.

For the final time this season, our Twitter feed will update you on all the teamsheets from the day, while the Dugout Discussion chatroom is open for the very last time – our new Matchday Comments system will be tested during the World Cup in the Summer and will be our method of capturing your real-time reactions for the next campaign.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
