Can you be a Fantasy Football Champion

Fantasy Football Qualification League Round Six

This week Lukaku out scored Dzeko by a point, although over the last four weeks Dzeko has the upper hand by just one point, so ownership of one of these players is not really a differential given the quality of the managers in the league. The main differentials this week were Mata, Puncheon, Eriksen and Gerrard who all earned 15 or more points in game week 32, and most of the teams climbing the qualification tables owned two or more of these players (in my case I have three, but left Puncheon on the bench – doh!). This week there seems to be a rush to sell Gerrard. Perhaps owning him will become a differential in the coming weeks that allows you to beat a H2H rival? Continue reading

United-0-City-3

Premiership Review for game week 31 (Part 6)

Manchester United 0 – 3 Manchester City

David Moyes, in his post-match interview, summed up the game adequately: “we have played a very good side, playing at the sort of level we are aspiring to”. Such a statement will come as a shock to many United fans but it took just 45 seconds for Manchester City to storm into the lead, Dzeko converting from close range after Nasri’s shot hit the post. The lead was doubled in the second half when Dzeko grabbed his second goal from a Nasri corner, and Yaya Toure added the final nail the coffin in the 90th minute after he rifled a low shot into the far post.
