FPL Ranks for Game Week 31

tl;dr – Start ’em if ya got ’em. Congratulations, you’ve made it to Friday, GW31 Eve! Chances are, you find yourself in a 10 or 12 team league and the pickings are absurdly slim and you’re feeling about as confident as a eunuch at a sperm bank. If your patchwork

FPL Ranks for Game Week 30

I get a lot of questions about how I rank defenders, often when Togga managers, with the benefit of hindsight, are @ raging when wingbacks I’ve ranked highly are failing to produce. So here’s a quick summary of my rationale: within the Top 20 defenders that I rank each week,

Analysing the Magic of the Cup

I’m putting it out there: F.A. Cup 5th round weekend is the worst weekend on the football calendar (international breaks aside of course). In the 3rd and 4th rounds there are plenty of matches on offer, whereas in the later rounds not only is the prize in sight, but you

FPL Ranks for Game Week 29

Regardless of which camp one belongs to with #WengerOUT and moaning about Arsenal, there is not one player on that team that can be trusted in fantasy at the moment. Before the back-to-back hidings by City, Arsenal had recently lost to Ostersunds, Swansea, Bournemouth, Forest, and drawn with West Brom.

FPL Ranks for Game Week 28

£430m was spent during the January transfer window in the EPL, £150m of it on deadline day, and no position in Togga was injected with more drama than FOR. As a result, of the 10 forwards below who’ve either changed EPL clubs or joined their first, every one of them is

FPL Ranks for Game Week 27

The fate of many a Togga manager rests on the outcome of Arsenal’s clash with Spurs at Wembley where they’ll try to repeat their dominant 2-0 display from GW12. While Arsenal’s away form is middling, they’ve enjoyed plenty of recent results at Wembley and the beatdown they served Everton has

Square Pegs Round Holes: Which Clubs Solved Their Issues in the January Transfer Window (part 1)

The Big 6 in the Premier League spent £276 MILLION during the January transfer window – and that’s not including the Sanchez/Mkhitaryan swap. An astronomical number, but one that actually isn’t very surprising at all. Whether it’s too ensure a club can challenge on all fronts (Manchester City) or to

Big Game Player versus Flat Track Bully: The EPL 100 Club

When Harry Kane equalised for Tottenham in the 18th minute against Southampton two weeks ago, it seemed inevitable that he would go on to bag another and claim his 100th English Premier League goal; joining a rarefied list of footballing greats headed by Alan Shearer and including the likes of

FPL Ranks for Game Week 26

GW25 made fools of many, but there was justice in the end for anybody who bothered to listen to my suggestions as my week ended in ignominious defeat. I started Zappacosta over Trippier, Barkley over Stanislas, Robertson over Milner, but it was a saved penalty and a key pass (are

Who’s in Goal? Weeks 25 & 26

It’s official! Crystal Palace are no longer the “go-to” team when making goalkeeper decisions! For the first time this season, we have a new team in the number 1 position. That is (for those unfamiliar with this article) statistically, goalkeepers facing Crystal Palace no longer earn the most points on
