    There’s no hiding from it – my decision to acquire Sergio Aguero was huge climbdown. I’m not proud of it. In fact, I’m almost ashamed of my sudden U-turn. So, in case you missed my justification on this week’s ScoutCast, I have to take this opportunity to explain myself. As we know, Aguero is no […]

    Sure enough, it didn’t take long for Sergio to punish my lack of faith. I’m still not budging, though. Despite taking a good hiding during this week’s rather heated ScoutCast, I’ve got to stick to my guns. For now. I still think there’s “another way” – that I shouldn’t feel compelled to gut my squad […]

    Sergio Aguero has made Fantasy Football exciting again. I’ve chosen a path that guarantees I’m going to run the Gameweek gauntlet with every passing deadline.

Then there’s the anticipation that we are all set to do it all over again, just two days later. These are […]

    Intent on milking further controversy from Jose Mourinho’s departure, it seems every football manager has been asked to give their views on the “Special One’s” exit. They have yet to get around to asking me, so I’ll put things on record by saying that I’ll miss the old so-and-so. Us Fantasy Football managers have a […]

    It’s difficult to embarrass yourself as a Fantasy Football manager. There’s no real opportunity to headbutt a player on the touchline, burst into song during a press conference or publicly liken a journalist to an ostrich. However, it’s far from impossible. I’ve gone and proved it. Just 12 hours ago, I demonstrated some simple steps […]

“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.”
