Gameweek 38: Chris Wood, Southampton assets could, Salah still good.

I was in Amsterdam last week. Thankfully, the Dutch capital isn’t just famed for its red light district and copious amounts of the green stuff; it’s also notorious for its humble pie. I tucked into a warm slice – with an accompaniment of cream, of course (I’m not a monster) – whilst sat on the […]

Gameweek 37: Luke Shaw, Wolves’ claw and Vardy looking for more

Would it be too hyperbolic to suggest that the underlying stats are all one needs to guarantee a strong FPL season?

Raucous Romelu, Wolves wanderings and a case of the Blues

If you haven’t heard (as shocking as it sounds, there will be some that still haven’t), Gameweek 32 is a double for 10 Premier League teams. In FPL terms, that means pandemonium: riots, looting, bin-fires – a national state of emergency akin to Brexit or a hose-pipe ban. It also means an awful lot of […]
