Hello and welcome to another edition of the News Wrap. We took a short break for some cup competitions but we are back and raring to go for a big gameweek 23. Many managers will have activated their January Wildcard with the extra week to ponder decisions, so let’s hope this gameweek brings about some big scores. With the previously mentioned cup competitions been in action over the past week there is as always injury news to report on, as well as some key players returning to training. Let’s take a look ahead of this weekends fixtures!

There’s not much out there…
Bit of a meh round that one wasn’t it? Looking at the FPLaddicts league there were a lot of scores in the 40-50s which isn’t huge, but not too ordinary either. Man City definitely helped with that feeling by failing to to ANYTHING at Arsenal, and those early Aguero jumpers would’ve felt pretty disappointed. They (read “we”) did save some money on the future jumpers though?
* Buyer beware – for now *
If you haven’t yet checked it out, be sure to scroll down and read my mid season analysis. That aside, we have a gameweek coming up this evening! That can mean only one thing, sorting out a captain. I’ll admit it’s been a dry spell lately, and things don’t look much easier this week. Let’s try and get back on track… Continue reading
Hello and welcome to another edition of the News Wrap. There have been plenty of wildcards activated this week, especially on this site, so how will this weekend’s games pan out? Let’s take a look at the players injured and unavailable from last weekend’s matches and those who are nearing a return. Continue reading
I have been surprised by the number of wildcards used this week, however it certainly makes sense due to the appalling scoring form of most top picks. I’ve decided to delay this weeks captains article to include some wildcard and transfer discussion, let’s get straight into it… Continue reading
