    The double Gameweek is a testing time – a period that puts Fantasy managers through a whole gamut of emotions, with joy and regret dished out in equal measure. As I continued to mull over my own options this morning, it struck me that the double Gameweek experience is deserving of some thorough analysis – […]

    Motivation is a problem. It’s an x-factor that can warp results, inspire teams to rip up the form book and earn goals and points from unlikely scenarios.

    I’ve tried to fight it but it’s hard to deny that I’ve spent a lot of this season seeking out an explanation for my struggles. I’m heading for my worst ever Fantasy Premier League campaign and I’m not going to settle for that without finding a scapegoat. It can’t all be Edin Dzeko’s fault and […]

    From this point on there’s likely to be a new set of dilemmas rattling around Saturday morning’s fuzzy head. The Premier League’s Ultimate game is with us from today until the end of the season – albeit in “Beta” form. A new, sophisticated and complex mistress, it’s yet another pull on my time – a […]
