  1. Eliteserien Runde 18 Preview - Graphs, Tables, Wildcards 3 days, 18 hours ago

    Yeah I'm not convinced he immediately drops out the starting XI because of Ondrasek and Espejord. He can play on either wing, too and played 30 games last season in the OBOS. Loads of people were saying he wouldn't start this season yet look at where we are. I know Espejord has been out for a while but he's been one of Tromsø's best players. Wouldn't be so quick to assume he's done at all. Even if he becomes an impact sub I'm not too sure that's too bad, either. One to watch but I'd be amazed if that's his season done and dusted. » Read

    I think he's been back home for the birth of his child. I think that's what's happened. » Read

    Heggebø and Finne are options too. Just think the Tromsø Brann game will be cagey and not too confident of many goals in that one. » Read

    Not a great success I have to admit but to be honest there no massive scores from too many highly owned assets. Skjærstein 1 Ranger 1 Bjørkan 1 Pedersen 2 Jonsson 11 Vecchia 6 Pellegrino 2 Sandberg 3 Ohi 26 (K) TLO 6 Mawa 2 Trige 0, Bell 7, Aasbak 5, Vilsvik 1 Not the end of the world as I'm happy with my setup. Probably moving from Sandberg to Bye this GW if he starts and likely to be on penalties - what a great buy. KBK game first this week so line ups out early for the transfer. Probably just get Friday for the DGW unless I see something in the stats to suggest someone else. But there's no hits for a few weeks now that's for sure, no matter how against my play style that might be. Congrats on the good score this week mate - hopefully it continues and you keep rising through the ranks! » Read

    Had Koné in my WC team but took him out as he wasn't meant to be with the squad. Come on man. We need better, more reliable info here. Frustrating. » Read

  6. Eliteserien Runde 18 Preview - Graphs, Tables, Wildcards 6 days, 12 hours ago

    Very confusing week so far. Ohi and Hopmark no longer on pens? Holse and Vecchia benched. No Mikkelsen at all? Sinyan with two assists. Koné starting even though strong information saying he wouldn't be back in time. Glimt conceding to Odd already. Vålerenga with little response against Sandefjord. Lillestrøm losing at home to Brann... And still no BFP for yesterday. Christ - we're getting lucky the majority of goalscorers and assisters are very, very lowly owned assets. Odd week so far! » Read

    I really like it. Very similar to mine with a few changes that in all honesty I was contemplating making myself! Aasbak/S. Nilsen - can see the logic for either Parr looks a really good shout, I'm just concerned if Grogaard takes his spot. Maybe not right away, though, right? But at some point surely.. Velde/Sandberg - I prefer Sandberg for reasons stated above but still, Velde is obviously a good shout! Heggebo - good enabler but not too sure how many I really expect to score on a regular basis. But hey, with Finne providing him maybe he gets more goals? Or will Finne be used up front at his expense now and then? Can't see it, but this is the Eliteserien! Edh - best cheapest defender in the game! If you need the funds then yeah, makes absolute sense. I've not had any of the chips go my way this season other than A/A/A but even that flopped on one player. 2 Captains and RU have been awful for me so I wish you better luck than I've had with them. I'd monitor Stabaek this week… » Read

    I'd recommend following Stat Sloth on Twitter if you have it - he provides really, really useful info regarding suspensions and what to expect in the upcoming GWs - very good account. The yellows don't go away too, so they all can be suspended as soon as they reach 4 bookings and two yellows in the same game can add up to more games suspended! » Read

  9. Eliteserien Runde 18 Preview - Graphs, Tables, Wildcards 8 days, 8 hours ago

    Recently updated my WC team: Wembangomo and Dragsnes OUT Walstad and Ranger IN Not too much between Dragsnes and Ranger - Dragsnes just far more likely to grab assists (x2 on xA to Ranger). In grand scheme of things, the 0.1m I lose out on going from Wembangomo to Walstad means Dragsnes has to go if I plan to go Vecchia to Tripic unless I catch a price rise. I don't like banking on that. Wembangomo is a great option but right now I need to mitigate against possible suspensions and the BGW next. Right now my formation is: Karlstrom Ranger, Aasbak, Bjorkan Jonsson, Vecchia, Sandberg, Pellegrino (V) Ohi (K), TLO, Kone Trige; Bell; Vilsvik, Walstad (I am tempted to play Bell ahead of Jonsson due to fixture ease but I'm still undecided on this). And going into next the BGW barring any complications it'll more than likely be the same. » Read

    Cheers RAE. xG and xGOT are really helpful metrics and understanding the difference between them and in context of how good the player is makes them even more useful. I thought it was worth mentioning in the context of this analysis because more frequently on Twitter I'm seeing people throwing around xG stats without really qualifying them at all which can really mislead a lot of people. I'll be going into more depth about this in future analysis but it felt the right moment to get the ball rolling with the mention of it. Ideally with the shorter articles the data won't be lost to a sea of text! » Read

  11. Eliteserien League Transfer Summary 8 days, 12 hours ago

    Hahaha. Not disagreeing although Finne can certainly do a job. For me I've gone with Sandberg over Finne as he looks to be in good form with fixtures to back that up. When the next article drops you'll see my WC team as it's at the bottom » Read

  13. Eliteserien League Transfer Summary 9 days, 13 hours ago

    Does anybody know why Vilsvik didn't play last week and if Grogaard is expected to take LB from Parr right away? Ideally want one of those three on my bench so I have them ready for the DGW. » Read

  14. Eliteserien League Transfer Summary 10 days, 12 hours ago

    Since writing this article, Herolind Shala has left STB. I still think Haugen and Kirkevold are good choices despite him leaving the club as he has struggled to get much game time this season and 2 of his 3 assists came in their very first game of the season. » Read

  15. Eliteserien Optician - Runde 10 21 days, 14 hours ago

    Yeah it's hard to disagree with Ramboros here. Vecchia highest ceiling but yeah, injury prone perhaps. Holse has been brilliant but how many points are we expecting from him every week? Skarsem will play in CM area so less likely to be involved in the attacking returns. Hoff out for the rest of the season? Doesn't help things at all. Ceide is a great young talent but will he play every game - rotation risk perhaps? If I was WCing and wanted a RBK mid, I'd find it hard not to have Vecchia. » Read

  16. Eliteserien Optician - Runde 10 21 days, 18 hours ago

    So I think I'm going with Two Captains this week with Kjartansson and Pellegrino. Not sure what if any DGWs we have on the horizon and seems like as good as any time to play it especially as both teams will be hungry to get wins going into the international break especially with such winnable fixtures. Pretty set on that tactic now. » Read

  17. Eliteserien Optician - Runde 10 21 days, 19 hours ago

    Not recommending either. Very close call. Pellegrino's hatty was perhaps somewhat fortuitous but he gets forward, on pens when on the pitch and scored a silly amount of goals last season. Tromsø are looking out of their depth in this league - I never expect a clean sheet from them. Will Mvuka start ahead of Pelle again? Who knows. Ohi has been prolific this season and then some. Always looks like scoring whoever he plays. However Molde are up against KBK who are absolutely no mugs especially at home. On paper it looks as if it's more likely Glimt score more than Molde (stats back this up too) but again, it's the very definition of a close call. Viking are the only side in the league yet to keep a clean sheet and they face s seemingly reborn Rosenborg side. Vecchia could be a great shout or one of the two youngsters in Holm and Ceide. Failing that, Vålerenga have a wonderful home tie against Stabaek - they could score a silly amount of goals. Personally I've gone with Pelleg… » Read

    Brand in absolute tatters - shambles of a club. Barmen already fired and now Rasmussen basically told to find a new club. Bamba has already moved on so in effect they've more or less lost their 3 best players other than Taylor. Free fall. Embarrassing. » Read
