The Preamble

  1. April

    As we lay ourselves at the mercy of the double Gameweek 34, we can take some comfort from the fact that we’ve all been here before. Almost a year ago to the day, I took time to analyse our thought processes prior and following a double Gameweek. This is perhaps the key quote from said […]

  2. April

    I always like to draw parallels between Fantasy Football and the real task of football management. This perhaps springs from the days of investing hours watching stick men edge around the screen in Football Manager, eventually graduating through the iterations of Championship Manager – all the time convincing myself of my credentials as a real-life gaffer. […]

  3. April

    Explain Fantasy Football to an alien, or indeed one of those football-hating folk you’re sometimes forced to sit next to at weddings, and you’ll doubtless make it sound simple. You pick players who you think will score the most goals and assists in real life – hence you look for those who will earn you […]

  4. April

    There’s nothing like the exhilaration of a double Gameweek to wake us from the slumber of an international break. Sadly, Gameweek 31 looks far from exhilarating. For the second time in the matter of weeks, we’re destined to root through Chris Ramsey’s QPR squad like grappling grannies at a jumble sale, desperately trying to find […]

  5. March

    In case you missed it (unlikely), Chelsea presented their “Penalty Puzzle” this week, claiming that, when it comes to their propensity to win spot-kicks, logic is being defied. The article arrived off the back of a string of ignored penalty claims and, notably, just a couple of months after Jose Mourinho was fined for claiming […]

  6. March

    “You can’t have all the good players, all the time” Few quotes from this week’s ScoutCast resonated more than that nugget. Simon March, currently the world’s top Fantasy Premier League manager, spoke a lot of sense over the course of our hour together but that comment was the one that hit home. So often on […]

  7. February

    It’s like we’re resigned to investing ten minutes talking to the plain-looking friend to get to the one we fancy. We’re just eager to get Gamweeek 27 out of the way so we can concentrate on the real business of the midweek double. I should probably point out that I never had the kahunas to […]

“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.”
