The Matchday Insight : Week 10

Before we get to week 10 picks , i must admit that last week has been more eventful that any other week for me. My rank has been moving up and down in thousands and at the end it did go up edging closer to the 4 digit number.Im sure most of us did bank on D. Gea along with Manchester United to play well in the derby at Old Trafford but this Man City side did demolish them in a manner that Alex discribed as "the worst defeat in his time ".

The Negative 18 by my keeper just about killed the week but all thanks to VDV with 2 goals got it back on track. Some good performances by Suarez , Balotelli and Rvp who came on from the bench at 73 mins and scored 2 goals.

Looking forward im sticking with the basics of strong home sides in defence and targeting weak opposition in the offence.Keeping in mind Carling cup matches midweek and CL matches coming up after Week 10, it will be important to ensure no player in your team is rested for either of the two reasons.

Lets get to Week 10 player picks :

The Matchday Insight : Week 9

We have learnt a lot from the last 3 weeks and im sure most of you will agree with me on this :

1. To stay away from most players playing CL in midweek as they tend to be rotated or tired.
2. Manchester clubs are not at all close to how they started the first 5 weeks.

3.Newcastle and Liverpool seem to show consistency and provide good value picks.
4.Newly promoted teams(QPR,Swansea,Norwich) all seem to inconsistent and not at all dependable.
5.The best picks from Week 1 to Week 5 ( Dzeko,Young,Silva,SWP,Cabaye,Richards,Gibbs etc) all seem to have lost their momentum and apart from Silva, the rest need a break from fantasy.
6.Manchester Derby ( after a midweek CL game) will be tough to depend on where fantasy is concerned.

Let's get straight to week 9 picks :

The Matchday Insight : Week 8

Lots happened in the last 2 weeks as England, France, Denmark, Italy etc all made it to the Euro 2012 and while these qualifiers were on, it gave me enough time to take a nice break from the regular.Having said that i must admit that ive missed watching EPL the last few days and im all geared up to watch as many matches i can this coming weekend.

I did have an eye on my fantasy team but could not do much with it as i wanted to be dead sure about injury news as i cant afford to have any one not playing or injured this early in the season.

Okay lets get straight to Week 8 :
