CHIPS CHIPS CHIPS

It’s been a long season with lots of ups and lots of downs. The end of the road is almost upon us but not before what could be THE season-defining gameweek. I thought at this point it would be worthwhile having a dig into who’s got what chips in the Top 50 and a bit […]

GW33 REVIEW – CONSIDERATION

This GW was all about CONSIDERATION. ‘Careful thought, typically over a period of time’. The season is long; there are no short-cuts. Managers, who have planned meticulously over the course of the campaign, were rewarded through the medium of plentiful points. As in life, unwise short-term (FPL) decision making can create long-term pain! And this […]

PLAYER OWNERSHIP – FREE HIT EDITION

PLAYER OWNERSHIP – FREE HIT EDITION Welcome to the latest installment looking at player ownership within the FFUK league.

GW29 REVIEW – WHITE FLAG

Welcome to the GW29 REVIEW – WHITE FLAG Are you ready to hoist the metaphorical White Flag up the flag-pole? Neighbouring folk near Chateau-Allen thought I’d actually submit! The bed-sheet was out hanging half-mast on Monday morning; I am in mourning and I am close to throwing in the towel, but in reality, it needed airing, […]

GW28 REVIEW – RECOVER

Welcome to the GW28 REVIEW – RECOVER With Chris in Berlin I tentatively volunteered to do this GW28 review. I say tentatively, as I was in Germany myself last weekend and knowing how long it takes an old git like me to recover from a three-dayer I wasn’t sure if my head would be straight […]
