The Preamble

    I seem to find more and more reasons to hate the early international break. Apart from the obvious issue of sifting the phantom injury setbacks, I find the Gameweeks that follow are most uncomfortable and unsatisfying. There’s another by-product of the two-week Premier League hiatus: the fact that so many throw in their Wildcard, revolutionising […]

    In case you missed it (and, doubtless, the intention is that you do), the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) have appeared to have tweaked the algorithm that governs their player prices and, as a result, slowed the increases of player values. Where last season a strong bandwagon would soar, sometimes adding 0.3 to a player’s price […]

The rank doesn’t lie – this is my worst ever Fantasy Premier League campaign. I’ve […]

    There was a common belief that good Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers don’t take hits. A few season’s back, our own Pure Olivia crunched some huge numbers and his findings were pretty conclusive – the top-placed managers rarely sacrificed points for extra transfers. This season, that theory has been somewhat shattered. In recent weeks I’ve […]

    Ultimate is a big word and, I have to admit, having tinkered with the Premier League’s new Fantasy game offering I was more than a little skeptical. Initially I missed the interaction of weekly transfers. I seemed able to absorb injuries and loss of form with some ease, very rarely having to consider thinking outside […]
