The Matchday Insight : Week 19

Now that was a week we all didn't expect. Rooney and Nani being billed as top runners and rightly so gave a total of 5.5? Unbelievable. We have to be wary of these real world managers being very unpredictable with lineups and getting a sure shot team on the scorecard atleast. I was lucky enough to have all my players partcipate and giving me a decent total of 76.5 in this low scoring week. Now the transitional week from 2011 to 2012 is here and it comes only 2 days after the last week. Should we expect surprising lineups and players on the team sheet?...surely, but the least we can do is be prepared so lets get down to it.

The Matchday Insight : Week 18

The midweek has come to a close with the Manchester clubs showing off their dominance during the festive periods. Overall the week was a mixed one with largely players giving in performances that were expected of them and a few not so. You wouldn't have seen too much movement in your rank this week but be prepared for a roller coaster ride for this coming matchday that seems to be a recipe for managers losing their heads as we'd all be spoilt for choices. lets take a look.

The Matchday Insight : Week 17

Before we can even brush off this past weekend the mid week matches are hovering over us with a lot of questions luming about who will start who won't, if the early subs or late ones in week 16 are any indication to what line-ps to expect from week 17 or players that were involved for the full 90 would get another full game or not not. We had a mixed results with players not giving great performances but average and below avg performances. Silva and Vermalaen DDG helped most teams end with a decent points total. Let's move ahead to the preview.

The Matchday Insight : Week 16

The Article has been updated.(Rohit)

Coming off a high scoring matchday with the likes of Rooney(40 pts), Suarez(22 pts), Nani(32 pts), Larsson(23.5 pts), Vorm(29 pts),Ba (23 pts) did well and incase you didnt have them in your team, im sure you must have barn doored some of them for the weeks to come.

Up till week 15 we did see most of the teams picking the same players such as Vdv, Rvp,Gervinho,Aguero etc who have given plenty of points in that period but now we do enter the Christmas period where the number of games go up and its time to move up in ranks.

The Matchday Insight : Week 15

It's been quite an eventful midweek for English clubs with the group stage of champions league coming to close and the fate of the four being decided. The result has to be surprising as no one would have bet that the London clubs would out do the more superior and talented Manchester clubs. With both City and United being pushed into Europa league priorities are sure to change but until next year feb this should not concern us.

Coming to this weeks preview we have a good mix of games ahead of us and choice is plentiful, so it could be a week when we see alot of variations in player picks. Clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are fore runner of the easy match ups so let's get into the details of what players to opt for this week.

The Percentage Wars - The Real Factor Behind Ranking Up.

Hi all. It looks like we all are in for a good week. Me and AM were discussing how our teams did and he pointed out the fact that the last minute change I made of taking Adebayor instead of Bale had hurt my chances of moving up the ranks quite a bit as the switch was worth 16.5 valuable points. We thought a further dissection of this move and how it actually impacted the team was necessary, and to be honest, something we'd enjoy getting to the bottom of.

Put Your Money Where The Points Are

As I was reading some of the comments on a few posts I put up on NMA, I came across "billthegrunt's" startling discovery that the midfielders are not proving to be very fruitful in this seasons game. So I thought it would be best to delve a bit deeper and see why and how to use this information to our advantage.

The Matchday Insight : Week 14

Matchday 14 is right upon us and it comes with a champions league's final matchday looming in the horizon. The teams that are still looking to secure qualification for the round of 16 are Man City, United and Chelsea. Mancini is a fantasy managers worst nightmare, making calls that u never expect and always fear. Ferguson's United is not a team that u would really heavily bank on this week with better options available. Villas-Boas's Chelsea have an early kick-off away to Newcastle....what a waste of an early kick-off. Arsenal and Totenham have no other competition really bothering them and the weekend is their priority. Lets see where all this takes us.

Show Rochina The Door?

Now if you barn doored him at 2.28, u might be looking at ur team sheets and thinking is he worth the gamble or not. After putting a excellent performance u might think he is, but we will go back to week 10 to 13 and get some analysis.
