Transfer Latest: Torres on Helicopter

Fernando Torres
Almost certain for a move to Stamford Bridge?
Looks like the biggest story of this winter transfer is going to become a reality. It is understood that Fernando Torres is on the helicopter. While there is no clearer explanation about where he went, I think we all know it must be Stamford Bridge.

Good luck Torres. Oh god, I'll have to change my blog header certainly.

Robbie Keane Joins Hammers on Loan

Robbie Keane
Needs to change weapon from rifle to hammer.
Great news from fantasy managers: one of the most prolific striker in the premier league, Robbie Keane, has made a move to West Ham.

The Irish is just £4.8m in terms of fantasy price and is a proven goalscorer in EPL. A move to Hammers should ensure an immediate starting position for him, as opposed to his days at Tottenham or Liverpool.

Amazingly cheap for an experienced forward.

Gameweek 25 Fantasy Preview

Carlos Vela
An interesting fantasy bargain after his loan move to West Brom.
The transfer market is finally heated in these final days as several deals are confirmed, including:
  • Demba Ba (Hoffenheim to West Ham)
  • Sulley Muntari (Inter to Sunderland, loan)
  • John Carew (Aston Villa to Stoke, loan)
  • Carlos Vela (Arsenal to West Brom, loan)
Among them, I believe Vela should perform well in the club with same attacking tendency and become fantasy studs.

Anyway, there's still 48 hours before the transfer market closes and we shall wait and see for the grand finale - Torres transfer saga. It is understood that Dalglish is willing to let the Spaniard go with a fee of £42m plus Anelka.

As a reminder, there will be four gameweek doubles in Gw27 and one each in Gw28 and Gw29. Plan your transfers nicely.

His presence greatly boosts Villa's damage to the opponents.
Manchester United v Aston Villa
Aston Villa has drawn Man Utd in the reverse tie this season, and they will have enough confidence to repeat it again in the presence of Darren Bent.

As soon as the Englishman arrived Villa has got two consecutive victories which shot them away from relegation zone. Bent simply attracts defenders and that means that Villa attackers like Downing and Ashley Young will have more space to attack. Smart bargain from Houllier.

However a trip to Old Trafford has never been easy. Sir Alex Ferguson will most likely welcome the return of his best back four, with Ferdinand back from injury and Rafael back from suspension. This will double the difficulty for the Villans to score.

Although Villa is now stronger than ever this season, but with Berbatov hitting top form, I still believe that United can win this one. Either a narrow victory or draw for them.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Aston Villa

The Rest
  • Arsenal v Everton (1-0) - Tough game for the Gunners, but they should win it if they want to be remained in contention for the title.
  • Sunderland v Chelsea (2-2) - The Black Cats have beaten City and held up Man Utd and Arsenal at home, so why not against the Blues?
  • West Brom v Wigan (3-2) - Attack attack attack! I'm in favour of home side which had just recruited Vela.
  • Birmingham v Man City (0-2) - Same as Arsenal, they simply need to win to at least maintain the gap against Man Utd.
  • Blackburn v Tottenham (1-2) - Bale will absent, but Pienaar is there to replace him.
  • Blackpool v West Ham (2-1) - A good chance for the Tangerines to improve their awful home record.
  • Bolton v Wolves (1-1) - Bolton has been hitting lows recently, and I'm not so sure that they can bounce back against fine-form Wolves.
  • Fulham v Newcastle (2-1) - It seems that Mark Hughes has found his winning formula.
  • Liverpool v Stoke City (2-0) - Pass and move, and Liverpool beats Stoke.

Peter Odemwingie
One goal in each half?
Captain Picks

  • Odemwingie - Great opportunity to get a brace against Wigan.
  • Dempsey - Serves ultimate importance for Fulham.
  • Meireles - His form bursts as fast as a burning volcano.
  • Vela - Should make it through to the Baggies' starting XI.
  • Bale - May need a surgery for his injury.
Squad of XV
GK: Hart
DF: Kelly, Hangeland, Rafael
MF: Van der Vaart, Dempsey, Meireles, Adam, Malouda
F: Van Persie, Odemwingie(C)

Subs (in order): Szczesny, Gyan, Djourou, Kolarov
Captain: Odemwingie

Transfer Blockbusters of Liverpool

Luis Suarez
Ajax's ace goes to Anfield officially.
Liverpool has finally break the deadlock on Suarez's transfer after agreeing a fee of £22m with Ajax.

The Uruguayan has scored 111 goals in 159 matches for the Dutch club and is expected to play with the same kind of efficiency at Anfield.

However, the Reds fan cannot be happy yet as their ace striker Fernando Torres has just submitted a transfer request which had been turned down by the club. Whether Kenny Dalglish will be able to deploy both strikers together remains a question.

Liverpool II: The Return of The King

Fernando Torres
Averaged five shots per game under Dalglish when he could only make it slightly over once per game under Hodgson.
Liverpool have finally found back their spirit as recorded back to back league wins for the second time this season.

They're obviously the team to be considered now for your fantasy team. Since the return of King Kenny, the Reds are slowly regaining their confidence.

This gameweek double has obviously shown that. Torres has found back his motivation to run and shoot; Meireles claimed full six bonus points from two games; Kelly becomes the highest scoring fantasy defender of the week with two clean sheets.

Clearly these three will continue to dominate plenty of fantasy points - at least for the points scored by Liverpool Football Club.

Interestingly, this gameweek's lead scorer scored 182 points! Will that be surpassed in Gw 27 which has lots of gameweek doubles as well?

Wednesday, January 26, 2011


Dimitar Berbatov
29 points - the second highest gameweek score from a single player I've seen since I played FPL.

He scored five goals in this gameweek double. Great.

However, I don't own BerbaTOP!!!

Those who have him should be scoring over 100 points comfortably.

This week is a very productive fantasy gameweek anyway with all the big names on big scores. Great to see.

Kenny Dalglish Equalises Roy Hodgson's Six Month Away Record in Two Games

The title pretty much speaks it all. 31 passes before Torres slotted in his second goal against Wolves. Enjoy.

Friday, January 21, 2011

Gameweek 24 Fantasy Preview

Ryan Babel
The EPL flop may escape from sinking Liverpool with a price of £6m.
The transfer window starts to heat up David Wheather (Middlesbrough to Bolton, £2.3m) the latest deal confirmed. Meanwhile, Luis "Hand of God II" Suarez possible move to Liverpool continues to top the transfer rumours.

Back to Fantasy. There will be three replacement fixtures this week, so do try to stock up double gamers whenever possible. The winter transfer wildcard can do you a lot of good this week, but I still believe try using it as late as possible.

Darren Bent
Faces gameweek double on his debut gameweek for Aston Villa.
Teams with Gameweek Double
  • Liverpool (Wolves@away, Fulham@home) - Kenny Dalglish is still waiting for his first victory in charge and it seems very possible in this gameweek. Wolves is weak at defence and adding a game against Fulham at home, attackers such as Torres and Kuyt remain the most attractive option from the Reds. Martin Kelly is the only defender I would recommend from Liverpool with such a mouth-watering price.
  • Wigan (Arsenal@away, Aston Villa@home) - Not so sure about Latics. Arsenal is in an upbeat form at the moment and it will be hard for Martinez's side to win against the team who has kept three consecutive premier league clean sheets. It won't be easy as well against Villa since they have recruited Darren Bent who will ultimately solve their finishing weakness. N'Zogbia and Rodallega might score one or two, but don't expect much.
  • Blackpool (Sunderland@home, Man Utd@home) - It's ridiculous if you still don't have Charlie Adam at your squad. The skipper has already scored 31 bonus points and there will be another gameweek double for him at gameweek 27. DJ Campbell is the second pick as always. As for the defence, I don't think they can guard Gyan of Sunderland and Berbatov, Rooney and Nani of United.
  • Fulham (Stoke City@home, Liverpool@away) - I am not surprised to see Fulham score four points this week. Clinton Dempsey remains your Fulham's fantasy ace and may rack up a goal or assist and also bonuses. Hangeland can grab a clean sheet against Stoke. Fulham players won't be good long term buys though as they will face Chelsea and Man City on gameweek 27 and 28.
  • Manchester United (Birmingham@home, Blackpool@away) - Six points are on Fergie's hands. Blackpool is the worst home player of the league, so no worries for United's woeful away performance. I expect one clean sheet out of the two, with Nani the most potential candidate for captain. You might want to bet on Berbatov - he can burst any time as long as he partners with Rooney.
  • Aston Villa (Man City@home, Wigan@away) - I would have swapped for Bent directly right after his transfer was confirmed, but a game against Man City cancelled my plan. Bent will still be the most tempting bargain of the team since the likes such as Downing, Young and Albrighton will promise unlimited supplies for him to score. It's almost certain that Bent will get his first goal this gameweek.
All Games
  • Wolves v Liverpool (1-1) - Rome was not built in one day so I don't expect Dalglish to recover the Reds' away confidence so fast.
  • Arsenal v Wigan (3-0) - Captain Van Persie if you own him.
  • Blackpool v Sunderland (1-1) - Holloway may sneak home with points as Sunderland is now in post-Bent transition period.
  • Everton v West Ham (2-1) - Just deploy every single Everton player you have.
  • Fulham v Stoke City (2-0) - The cottagers are in fine form and I expect that to continue against mid-table opposition.
  • Man Utd v Birmingham (2-0) - Sir Alex to maintain his great record against his ex-players.
  • Newcastle v Tottenham (2-2) - I expect tough challenge from Magpies.
  • Aston Villa v Man City (2-3) - Darren Bent will add the dimension that Villa lacks but Man City is still too strong for them.
  • Blackburn v West Brom (2-2) - Should be an entertaining match.
  • Bolton v Chelsea (1-2) - Bolton's form has been lacklustre recently so I think Chelsea can complete the double.
  • Blackpool v Man Utd (2-3) - One is poor at home while the other is poor at away. Victory should be on the side which has better class.
  • Wigan v Aston Villa (1-2) - You just simply cannot ignore the effect of Darren Bent.
  • Liverpool v Fulham (2-1) - Dalglish simply has to win to repay his fans' support.

Clinton Dempsey
The man that you should get from Fulham this week.
Captain Picks

  • Nani/Berbatov/Rooney - Good games for them to rack up plenty of fantasy points.
  • Dempsey - Major goal scorer + bonus pointer for two games.
  • Van Persie - Wigan's a cake for him.
  • Torres - Both opponents' defences aren't strong so he should have plenty of chance to score.
  • Nani/Vidic - Most reliable Man Utd players in offence and defence each. Gameweek doubles at Gw 24 and 28.
  • Downing/Young/Albrighton - Bent will help them to record more assists.
  • Kelly - Amazingly cheap for a full back.
  • Van Persie - Has been showing spectacular form recently.
  • Bolton players - they're experiencing a sharp decline in form.
Squad of XV
GK: Van der Sar
DF: Vidic, Kelly, Hangeland
MF: Meireles, Adam, Dempsey, N'Zogbia, Nani(C)
F: Torres, Van Persie

Subs (in order): Kingson, Rodallega, Evatt, Alcaraz
Captain: Nani
Emergency Captain: Value

Tottenham Won the Battle for Pienaar as Bent Joined Villa

Steven Pienaar
Tottenham edged over Chelsea to get him surprisingly.
The transfer market finally got heated up a bit with two famous names on the tabloid - Everton's Steven Pienaar and Sunderland's Darren Bent.

Pienaar has joined Tottenham Hotspur for a fee around £3m. This deal kind of surprised me as I thought that Chelsea was the one closer to the South African hero of World Cup 2010. A good deal for Harry Redknapp for such a low price.

Meanwhile, Sunderland's star Darren Bent is now hired by Aston Villa to solve their finishing problems. Bent, who sold for initially £16m and potentially racking up to £24m, is expected to improve Houllier's report book at Villa.

Interestingly, Bent's exit from Sunderland will make Gyan become the main target in fantasy transfer market. Don't you agree?

Sunday Sparks

It was an entertaining goal feast on Saturday with Manchester City and Arsenal on fire but all the games on Sunday ended with draws! Here are some highlights:

Saturday games
  • Ivanovic became the top fantasy scorer of the week with his goal, assist and clean sheet. The Serb is now only five points behind his fellow team mate, who topped the fantasy defender's table for the first third of the season - Ashley Cole.
  • Of course, congratulations to Chelsea for finally regaining some stability. Malouda got three bonus points but Drogba, still, in misery.
  • Tevez became the hero again after scoring a fantastic goal dribbling past several defenders. A great fantasy captain this week. Dzeko had a decent start as well with one assist.
  • On a side note, the Kolarov curse continues - he has never got a clean sheet since December, when City has got four.
  • Theo Walcott (left) and Robin Van Persie
    Each got 16 points, how about you?
  • Arsenal pushed Grant's nearer to execution after a marvellous performance by Walcott and Van Persie. Both are undervalued and will be fantastic bargains.
  • Defender helped Stoke City to goal again. Not Huth this time, but Higginbotham.
  • A goal feast happened in the clash between West Brom and Blackpool, as expected. My loyalty to Odemwingie finally pays as he scored a brace and claimed two bonus points.
  • The only draw of Saturday was Wigan-Fulham encounter. A good move for those who took in Dempsey early for the forthcoming gameweek double as he scored eight fantasy points.
Sunday games
Martin Kelly
Played more solid than Glen Johnson on the right.
  • Much promised by Liverpool on the first half of Merseyside derby but defensive problems once again took the team down. Kuyt was the top fantasy scorer of the game with 12 points.
  • One man note watching is Martin Kelly - he has started all three games under Kenny Dalglish and looked very solid. A pretty good bargain for the coming gameweek double with his £4.2m price tag.
Rafael da Silva
Perfect plan for the next gameweek spoilt due to his red.
  • The promising game between Tottenham and Manchester United turned out to be not so promising as both side were held by goalless draw. Fortunately I own Vidic though, as he earned eight points from the game.
  • Those who had already bought Rafael for the coming gameweek double will be frustrated with his double yellow. Better luck next week.
  • Two other games on Sunday were both ended with 1-1 draws. Gyan and Nolan scored a goal each as they continue to improve their rankings in fantasy table.
Good luck on your preparations for the next week...

Gameweek 23 Fantasy Preview

Christiano Ronaldo
Could not believe that Messi won Ballon d'Or
Congratulations to Messi for winning another best player award. Quite a number of people think that Xavi or Iniesta deserves it more, but whatever the result is, it won't satisfy all.

Double-gamers failed to grab the spotlight last week as several as numerous cheap performers are on fire including Bardsley, Coleman, Simon Davies and also hat-trick hero Leon Best. However, it weren't too bad for Blackpool players with DJ Campbell scored 12 while captain Adam scored nine in which five were bonus. The only Liverpool player worth mentioning is Torres - he scored the first goal in Kenny Dalglish's reign.

David Bentley
Looking to resurrect his career at Birmingham.
The transfer market has already opened two weeks ago while the second fantasy wildcard can be used any time now until the deadline of gameweek 27. You should use it now if you have serious problems with your squad; otherwise, try to use it only after the transfer market has closed to have more possible options. Here are the list of major transfers that might interest you:
  • Bentley [Tottenham to Birmingham (loan)] - Might be interesting if he gains enough playing time.
  • Dzeko [Wolfsburg to Man City] - The most anticipated deal currently.
  • Khumalo [Supersport United to Tottenham] - The only thing I know about him is he played in World Cup 2010. No idea on how much impact he will do.
  • Bridge [Man City to West Ham (loan)] - May be the key for Hammers' survival.
Good luck on your transfers.

Rafael Van der Vaart
Vows to take down Manchester United.
Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United
An entertaining battle is expected this Sunday from these two sides.

United is sailing ahead of its competitors with two points above Man City and two games on hand. Their 19th looks very close now but they must settle what is in front of them first.

White Hart Lane has been a mega fortress since Van der Vaart's arrival and Bale's emergence and that's why Tottenham are still unbeaten at home this season. Redknapp has now a new defender Khumalo but the South African will most probably bring no effect to your fantasy pursuit - Tottenham is known for leaking goals.

On the away side, Rooney should be available for this game and expect him to combine with Berbatov and Nani for goals and assists.

I will go for a draw with goals - not quite a bad result for both sides as they will preserve their home-unbeaten and league-unbeaten runs respectively.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-2 Man Utd

The Rest

  • Chelsea v Blackburn (2-1) - Not quite safe for Blues since they could lose to Wolves.
  • Man City v Wolves (3-0) - Might be a great debut for Edin Dzeko.
  • Stoke City v Bolton (1-1) - Games at Britannia are never easy.
  • West Brom v Blackpool (2-3) - Expect a goal feast.
  • Wigan v Fulham (2-1) - N'Zogbia's return will give immense strength for home side to attack.
  • West Ham v Arsenal (1-2) - The Hammers are not good enough defensively to stop Gunners.
  • Birmingham v Aston Villa (2-1) - Not just a simple derby but also a relegation six-pointer. The Brums defensive resolution will help in this game.
  • Sunderland v Newcastle (2-0) - The Black Cats should have gotten their lesson and will play their best to revenge.
  • Liverpool v Everton (2-1) - It is a big challenge for Dalglish to return to Anfield in such intense Merseyside derby, but thankfully the Toffees offer much less attacking threat without Cahill.

Carlos Tevez
Does not fear about Dzeko's threat.
Captain Picks

  • Tevez - Dzeko may or may not merge with the squad yet so the Argentine is still the safer bet.
  • Adam - The Baggies are leaky.
  • Gerrard - Red carded.
Squad of XV
GK: Hart
DF: Kolarov, Bardsley, Huth
MF: Adam, Fabregas, N'Zogbia, Nani, Van der Vaart
F: Tevez(C), Torres

Subs (in order): Gordon, Odemwingie, Djourou, Carr
Captain: Tevez

Dalglish's Nightmare Debut

Kenny Dalglish
No luck for him for his first game in charge.
It turned out to be a disaster for the new Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish as his side crashed out of FA Cup due to some controversial judgements.

Manchester United grabbed the lead in as early as 2 minutes after Berbatov's cheap dive was cheaply awarded a penalty by the one who we call United's lucky star, Howard Webb. Great decision by England's so called best referee.

Manchester United had more to celebrate with Steven Gerrard tackled Darren Fletcher two-footedly in 33rd minute. It effectively sentenced a death to Dalglish's debut game as the Reds' manager.

But still Liverpool were able to fight their best to at least prevent any more leakage at the back and the display by the players were obviously better than Roy Hodgson's era. A sign of relief to the fans.

Man Utd 1-0 Liverpool, but the battle between Dalglish and Ferguson was certainly a draw. Two exciting old men.

Goodbye Roy Hodgson, Officially

Roy Hodgson
He's impressed by his fantastic away record.

The pain in every Liverpool supporters thus far, Roy Hodgson, has finally left the club on mutual consent. It was unusual for this club though - they had never sacked any manager at the middle of the season so far.

Kenny Dalglish - whom many Liverpool fans chanted for during Roy's reign - is appointed for the position of temporary manager until someone else takes his place. But will King Kenny of Anfield bring Reds out of misery? Time will tell.

Even Wolves Can Defeat Chelsea Now

Carlo Ancelotti
Fearing the loss of his job?
Chelsea lost again yesterday after another disappointing display which reflected through Bosingwa's own goal. Total humiliation for Ancelotti and his squad.

Liverpool was another team which also underwent big humiliation yesterday after a 1-3 defeat to Blackburn. I wonder how long more must Liverpool fans suffer before Roy "only win once away" Hodgson is axed.

Manchester United is again the big winner this round as all four teams behind it failed to claim three points. Their 19th title is so so close.

Two fantasy hot cakes - Nolan and Coleman - scored 13 and 11 points respectively. Do you own them?

Crazy Points From Fulham Players... Again

Simon Davies
Starred the first day of gameweek 22 with 17 points.
After a 20 point haul by Baird last week, Fulham surprisingly eased another victory yesterday against West Brom with Simon Davies recorded a goal and two assists.

The big win will definitely shocked a lot of fantasy managers as there were fair amount of Fulham players such as Hangeland and Dempsey benched this week.

Also featuring on yesterday were Nani's superb return from injury with 12 fantasy points which helped United to continue Old Trafford's ultimate record and Birmingham's away win against Blackpool. Charlie Adam and DJ Campbell has already earned four and six points respectively in this gameweek double.

Crazily Rich City Agreed Fee to Buy Edin Dzeko

Edin Dzeko
What are the odds for this fellow to take down Tevez and Balotelli?
Absolutely crazy. Man City once again trying to overwhelm the transfer market as they agreed the transfer fee for Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko has been great for Wolfsburg of Germany but can he adapt himself to the quick tempo of English football?

Most importantly, can he compete with the ultimate beast Carlos Tevez and the wonder kid Mario Balotelli for a starting spot? Another extravagant spending by the Sheikh Mansour's club.

Gameweek 22 Fantasy Preview

Drogba v Terry
Both clashed as the former contributed one goal and one assist but the latter  leaked three goals.
Chelsea once again disappoint us with a 3-3 draw against out of form Aston Villa. Once a leader, Chelsea now sit on fifth, behind Tottenham Hotspur after their derby rival secured a 1-0 win against Fulham.

On the other hand, two fantasy stars missed a penalty each this week - Tevez and Odemwingie - and I owned them both! Such a catastrophe for me since December as each and every transfer I made were disastrous. This was further worsen by Kolarov - who played 58 minutes when Man City got a clean sheet!

Finally, congratulations to Rooney - who scored his first goal from open play after so many months. But now, lets have an overview for the next gameweek...

Cesc Fabregas
Mr Fab on fire.
Arsenal v Man City
Manchester Blues are set to revenge after a humiliating defeat at home earlier this season.

This time the showdown will be much more exciting as both teams are on red hot form. The Manchester side collected 15 points from their last six games, with the London side two points less.

Compact fixtures is not a problem for both sides as they have ample talents to substitute. Arsenal have all their attackers on fire including Walcott, Arshavin, Bendtner, Van Persie, Nasri, Song, and most importantly, captain Cesc. The skipper scored 23 fantasy points from the last two games he had played. A good lead by example.

However City is by no means weaker than Arsenal. Silva has been very influential nowadays, playing a role similar to Modric at Tottenham despite lacking statistical returns. Meanwhile, Balotelli's outstanding form is a constant threat for Tevez - which will motivate the latter to give more effort on the pitch. Not to be forgotten are City's defensive midfielders who will not hesitate to play ugly tackles for the sake of victory.

A draw will not help both sides so this match should have a winner. I will lean towards the away side, as the Gunners usually fear brutal midfielders and City has a good record at away.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-3 Man City

The Rest
  • Blackpool v Birmingham (2-2) - Tight and close as Birmingham strive to get away from bottom three.
  • Fulham v West Brom (1-1) - Fulham is still lack of defensive resolution so I think the Baggies will sneak away with a result.
  • Man Utd v Stoke City (2-0) - It's the Theatre of Dreams where United win all but one. Nani is expected to be ready for this game.
  • Aston Villa v Sunderland (2-2) - Pretty unpredictable but it looks like Villans will once again get frustrated by another draw.
  • Newcastle v West Ham (1-1) - Carroll might still be doubtful for this one so the Hammers has a strong chance to push themselves further away from relegation zone.
  • Wolves v Chelsea (1-3) - With the attackers back on track, victory is expected for the Blues.
  • Blackburn v Liverpool (3-3) - Steve Kean won't park the bus like Big Sam so expect big leakages for both sides.
  • Bolton v Wigan (2-1) - N'Zogbia continues his suspension so put your chips on Elmander and co.
  • Everton v Tottenham (1-3) - No more Tim Cahill, no more power.
  • Blackpool v Liverpool* (1-2) - The Reds will like to pay a revenge against the Seasiders for both killing them at home and making their January fixtures ultimately compact.
*Gameweek double

D.J. Campbell
The best time to benefit from his service?
Captain Picks
  • Gerrard/Torres - At least you won't get a two this time.
  • Adam - One three points bonus is suffice to benefit from his captaincy.
  • Drogba/Malouda - Wolves is always Lions' food.
  • Drogba/Malouda - Chelsea's offence is reactivated.
  • Adam/DJ Campbell - Compact fixtures. One always score bonus while the other is on form.
  • Wolves - Their next series of games - Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool, Bolton, Man Utd, Arsenal!
  • Chamakh - Totally overpowered by Van Persie.
  • Asian Cup participants (Park, Lee, Cahill etc) - They won't contribute anything to you this month, in any way.
Squad of XV
GK: Van der Sar
DF: Skrtel, Vidic, A Cole
MF: Gerrard(C), Fabregas, Adam, Van der Vaart
F: Torres, Drogba, DJ Campbell

Subs (in order): Jaaskelainen, Barton, Knight, Hughes
