The Dirtsheet: Gameweek 4

Posted: September 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

Today sees the first of three weeks of shortened dirtsheets as I enter a very busy period of my life, both personally and professionally. I have time to do all the research but the time to write full article is not there right now. My apologies to all my readers, but let’s get cracking…

The Dirtsheet: Gameweek 3

Posted: August 29, 2014 in Uncategorized

A shorter-than-usual Dirtsheet for this week as I have spent most of it travelling to London for work – I completely forgot that Arsenal were playing in the Champions League as I could have gone on a scouting trip to see Ramsey and co. Ah well!

IT’S BAAAAACCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotcha!

Good afternoon to all my readers, both old and new, and welcome to the first Dirtsheet of the new season. My regular readers will know that I never like to release a Dirtsheet for the first gameweek of the season as I think it is important for each of you to complete your own teams.

It’s been a busy year for me personally but I will definately try to keep these articles going. There may be a few weeks where I may opt for a shorter version of the Dirtsheet, but they will contain the same amount of preparation and research as usual.

Here we go!!!

The Dirtsheet: Gameweek 38

Posted: May 10, 2014 in Uncategorized

Good morning readers and welcome to the final Dirtsheet of the season! It’s hard to believe that yet another 38 gameweeks have flown by, but here we are, at the end of what has been a season which will be remembered for the performances of so many players, most notably Yaya Toure and Luis Suarez. As can be expected, both make the final Dirtsheet of the season.

For the final week, I’m focusing on players who should start at the weekend – these players have either something to play for or should play regardless of current league position. However, as we have seen many times before, the final day of the season is akin to a lottery. The one piece of advice that I will give everyone is to make sure your squad is healthy…today is not the day to have three players on your sub bench who will not play.

Best of luck to all my readers, I hope the Dirtsheet has been of benefit to you all in the 2013/2104 season!

Update: As we come closer to the deadline, it is less likely that Rooney will start. Please go with your gut on the Rooney transfer.

As I began the write up for the penultimate Dirtsheet of what has been a superb season, Ryan Giggs was simultaneously delivering his press conference to the awaiting media in Manchester. However, while we are all used to seeing Giggsy confusing opponents for more than two decades, I don’t think anyone has ever been more confused as the FPL managers who tuned in to hear some news about the injury sustained by Wayne Rooney in training on Thursday.

At 10:00 am, the interim United manager stated that Rooney has a stomach bug and a tight groin, but that he will probably want to play anyways.

Great! Thanks for that Ryan, leave us all in a mire of uncertainty! One in five FPL managers have Rooney, and for the 121,000 managers who transferred him in this game week, a difficult decision must now be made. Do we sell Rooney again in order to buy in another striker, or do we hope that Rooney will start both games. It’s a bitter blow for Rooney owners – he was a lock for many people’s captaincy this gameweek.

As with most double gameweeks, there are some very strong single gameweek players that require your attention, and this weeks Dirtsheet highlights the best of them.

The Dirtsheet: Gameweek 36

Posted: April 25, 2014 in Uncategorized

So Ryan Giggs is the Interim Manchester United manager! I remember him making his debut – a gangly kid who seemed to have an incredible future ahead of him. Sir Alex Ferguson was able to take him under his wing and keep him away from the media lights in a way he was unable to do with some of the other prodigious talents coming out of the Old Trafford youth ranks at the time. Now, at 40, he finds himself the manager of his childhood club. It’s an exciting time to be a United supporter, but I have not let that cloud my judgement when selecting the Dirtsheet for this week. Having said that, 3 United players make my team for this week based on the fixture and their recent form. Meanwhile, I back Liverpool to all but wrap up the Premier League title on Sunday and the Dirtsheet selections reflect this.

Three weeks to go before we all run off to find a World Cup fantasy game!

The Dirtsheet – Gameweek 35

Posted: April 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hi all,
As you may know, I’m just someone like yourselves who loves his FPL. Unfortunately, real life sometimes has to take priority over FPL, and I find myself preparing for an interview this afternoon. I have to resort to a very functional Dirtsheet this week as I have no time to complete a detailed write-up. Rest assured, however, that the same level of investigation and analysis has gone into the selection of each player below – something that I start as early as Monday for you all!

Team news suggests that many top players will not be plying their trade this week, and with lingering doubts surrounding the likes of David Silva and Wayne Rooney, I select players who should start at the weekend.

Here is the Dirtsheet for Gameweek 35!
