Gameweek 38 – the final countdown

In 2011/12 on May 12, 2012 at 11:16 am

Gameweek 38 is here.  The finale.  In most fantasy premier league seasons, gameweek 38 is a tough one to call.  Most teams have nothing to play for and put out a random line up.  This season, however is different – everything is up for grabs; the title, relegation and 3rd / 4th place playoff and there are is embarrassment of riches to choose from.  It is time to call on the big guns;

Sergio Agüero
15 / 22 of the Argentinian striker’s goals this season have come at the Etihad.  With Manchester City needing a win to bring home the title you would have to back Agüero to grab a goal or 2 and some bonus points.

Emmanuel Adebayor
28.  Adebayor  has actually earned more bonus points than Agüero this season.  With 3 goals and 4 bonus points in his past 2 games and Spurs with needing a win against Fulham at home to confirm a champions league place, the Togan is not a bad shout.

Robin Van Persie
30 goals, 12 assists, 45 bonus points.  This has to be a record for a fantasy premier league striker.  What a season Van Persie has had.  With the dutchman needing a few more goals against West Brom to guarantee 3rd place who would bet against him getting the bonus points.

So that is it.  The gameweek 38, fantasy premier league watch list.  Whoever you have picked good luck and may bonus points rain down on you.


Gameweek 36 – double trouble

In 2011/12 on April 28, 2012 at 10:38 am

It has been a while but gameweek 36 is finally here.  The gameweek that everyone fantasy premier league manager has been waiting for.    8 teams have double gameweeks.  Including some marquee players.  Gameweek 36 is a huge and maybe the last opportunity to make ground on your league leader. But who makes the gameweek 36 watch-list?

Van der Vaart

It has not been going well for Spurs recently but with a home game against; Blackburn and then away Bolton you have got to fancy some goals.  Van der Vaart has not hit the highs of last season but still has 9 league goals.  He has 2 league goals in his past 2 home starts and a good goal scoring record against Blackburn.


After Chelsea’s heroics in Barcelona mid week there are very few defenders left standing.  Cahill is out for the season, Ivanovic  has a 1 game ban and Luiz is still injured.  Somehow Terry is still playing but surely he won’t play every game.  That leaves one man – Jose Boswinga.  The  Portuguese full back was on the watch list of every fantasy premier league manager at the start of the season but things got messy with AvB.  With 2 home games you would back Chelsea to come out with at least 1 clean sheet.  Jose also has a goal, 3 assists and 10 bonus points to his name.

Hatem Ben Arfa

I love Ben Arfa.  He has everything you want in a winger.  Skills, set pieces and most of all he is greedy.  Ben Arfa has 5 goals, 7 assists and 8 bonus points to his name.  Not bad considering he has only played for half the season.  However in gameweek 25 the Newcastle winger developed a very annoying fantasy premier league trait.  The assist for the assist.  This happened twice vs. Stoke.  With 4.2 points / game I predict HBA to have a big double game-week.

Whoever you pick for the gameweek 36, good luck and may you have many bonus points.
