Gameweek 5 review

If I was David Coote I wouldn’t be wanting to step foot on the red side of Merseyside for a long time. Seriously how can a referee forget the rules!!! The Merseyside derby had everything 4 goals, a red card, VAR drama and we still couldn’t get a winner, but honestly what was going on in the VAR room? Pickford that honestly was the most disgraceful tackle I’ve ever seen. I honestly believe Liverpool were robbed of winning that derby, at least Everton still can’t beat us, it’s been a long time for them. Aston Villa have been the surprise packet this season, they honestly should of Been playing championship football this season but they aren’t and are sitting nicely second at the moment with a game in hand over Everton. It was good to see Lampard watched Germany play during the international break and saw that Werner is better at being a striker, the ones who stuck by him were finally rewarded for sticking by their striker, it was very unfortunate for non-owners like myself hoping he wou…

Game Week 4 Preview FPL

Another high scoring weekend in the premier league for goals in Gameweek 3, I feel like that will be the norm before the FA and government allows fans back in, whenever that may be. I am going to keep this rant short I hope, but I am seriously very disappointed in the way the game is progressing. The inclusion of VAR was to help the referee turn an incorrect decision to the right one, but also this season the handball law was re-written and there have been about 20 penalties from only 28 games. That’s nearly a penalty a game, about 8 have been given as handball. This handball law is beyond ridiculous, im sorry but those pundits who rallied for this has ruined the way football is being played. Players soon will be instructed to just kick or head the ball into a trailing hand, of those 8 penalties given as handball, probably 60% of them have been the incorrect call, Matt Doherty vs Southampton, one of the worse decisions I’ve seen since the start of the season, Lucas Digne heading the b…

My Team Reveal

I wouldn’t call myself an expert or anything but I will say that I believe I give good advice and maybe I should take on some of that advice I give others for myself and if that was the case maybe I’d have good seasons. Well this season was a shorter preseason for myself and I only changed my team a couple of times. I did have a larger player pool though to choose players from. 
When picking my team I look at the opening 5 fixtures for each team and base my team off that, plus I base getting 65+ as a par score. Who did I choose for my first Gameweek?:
GK: Lloris (Tottenham) - I chose him due to Tottenham’s start to the season, I feel like I can have him as my keeper for the first 8 games and then can change it. I would hope he will keep at least 3 clean sheets in those first 8 games. After that it will be a change to someone else. 
B/UP GK: Nyland (Villa) - if Villa didn’t go for Martinez and sign him then Nyland would of possibly been the number one keeper. 
DEF: Alexander-Arnold (Liverp…

Daily Fantasy Sports Tips Saturday PL 19.9.20

Well last week started off a little shaky when I totally didn’t expect Willian to be starting and providing 3 assists, if you didn’t have him along with Lacazette or Aubameyang you wouldn’t of cashed. Then didn’t expect Everton to beat Tottenham either, was sitting nicely after West Brom vs Leicester with 5 players to go and looking at the other games I thought when I woke up there would be a nice prize sitting there but nope, Everton played really well from all reports and are going to be a team lots of people will target when they come up against the weaker teams. On Tuesday morning was pretty routine with wolves winning away from home against Sheffield, that game was always going to be a good game to stack wolves defensively. Saiss provided the goods getting his name on the scoresheet taking up the Jonny role. Chelsea went about their business by beating Brighton 3-1 with lots of people possibly stacking Chelsea defensively but with the back four going to be continually unsettled d…

Fantasy Premier League GW2 Preview

The second game week can’t come quick enough for many coaches. I have seen a lot of people already use their first wildcard. For the first time this season I will not be transferring anyone in and saving my free transfer for Gameweek 3 when I’ll swap Aubameyang for Bruno Fernandes or KDB. We finally have both Manchester clubs starting their season along with Aston Villa and Burnley. 
Here are the fixtures for the next game week: 
SaturdayEverton vs West Brom @ Goodison ParkLeeds vs Fulham @ Elland RoadManchester United vs Crystal Palace @ Old TraffordArsenal vs West Ham @ Emirates Stadium
SundaySouthampton vs Spurs @ St. Mary’sNewcastle vs Brighton @ St. James ParkChelsea vs Liverpool @ Stamford BridgeLeicester vs Burnley @ King Power Stadium
MondayAston Villa vs Sheffield @ Villa ParkWolves vs Manchester City @ Molineux Stadium

There are a number of players that I reckon you should hold and will bounce back this week:
Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.5): You picked this guy for a reason. Did…

Fantasy Premier League Review GW1

Seriously, How good was it to have the Premier League back?? My boys had a hard fought win against newly promoted Leeds. Leeds showed promise and will beat top teams at some stage this season and should definitely stay up. Arsenal went about their business as per usual. Chelsea notched up their first win eventually downing Brighton at the Amex. It looks all doom and gloom for West Ham to start the season, losing 2-0 to Newcastle, with both of the new Newcastle boys Hendrick and Wilson getting on the score sheet. Everton surprised a few including me, by defeating Tottenham. I do reckon Leon Osman is well ahead of himself by saying “Everton can win the league”. Toffees don’t get too far ahead of yourself, come up one of the big boys and you’ll probably come crashing back down to earth. Routine win for Leicester over West Brom, Palace might of surprised a few with a win over Southampton thanks to a Zaha volley at the back post, while Wolves went about their business securing a 2-0 win ag…
