    The Sunday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    United in procrastination and debate for the last time this season, Fantasy managers await the events of the final day, mapping out the possibilities and plotting the merits of one last gamble. Although it seems painful, a week on from now, we’ll doubtless miss the sweaty palms as we hover over confirm button. So, with […]

    The Saturday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    This is no ordinary Saturday but, while a Wembley showpiece and the offering of just a single Premier League match provide distractions, we can’t allow ourselves to waver ahead of the penultimate Fantasy deadline of the season. There is still much at stake throughout the mini-leagues and, indeed, at the very top of the Fantasy […]

    Saturday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    It’s one last hurrah. One final chance to make a significant dent in that mini-league gap or perhaps make that sprint for the finishing line. A double Gameweek with six teams is perhaps a rarity at this stage in the season, particularly one that bristles with talent from the Spurs, Chelsea and City squads. The […]

    While Gameweek 35 looks, on paper, to be an ordinary ten-match affair, with another set of double fixtures looming, Fantasy managers will already be using transfers to prep their squads in advance. They’ll be much debate on how much to commit one week early and whether strong single Gameweek assets should be neglected in favour […]

    The Saturday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    After a fraught and frenzied double Gameweek schedule, this weekend brings us back down to earth with the simple pleasures of a single set of fixtures. While that reels in our expectations, the pressure is still on to squeeze out every last point from the Gameweek, whilst keeping one eye on the next double header […]

    The Saturday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    The double Gameweek frenzy reaches a crescendo with around two hours to go before the gate slams down on our Fantasy lineups. Points hits are still on the cards, captain changes and bench tweaks still to be decided ahead of a Gameweek which will, hopefully, provide some heavy scoring after the previous weekend fell so […]

    The Saturday Surgery

    Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

    Gameweek 32 is a strange, two-headed beast. In a way, Saturday provides the starter – serving up just four matches to get things underway, before Sunday’s main course presents a rich spread of heavy-hitters, culminating in Monday night’s delicious desert in the form of the Manchester derby. While that particular tussle will take on less […]

“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.”
