Fantasy Football – Managing Sergio Agüero

Our man in the know when it comes to Fantasy Football, guru Richard Beaumont aka Treakz on Twitter, nurses the crocked Agüero situation. As FPL managers wake up to the news Sergio Agüero could be out for up to eight weeks following a strange sounding incident in Amsterdam, I look at immediate and long term options to replace the Argentine striker. Kane Unbelievable form sees Kane being an obvious replacement for Agüero. Spurs travel to Huddersfield, who so far this season have had an extremely organised defence.

Our man in the know when it comes to Fantasy Football, guru Richard Beaumont aka Treakz on Twitter, has a look at those big money transfers Sergio Aguero (£11.6m) For some reason, Aguero went relatively under the radar during the preseason selection and early season. After a hat-trick last week and a total of five goals this season (and two assists) he can no longer be ignored. Man City welcome Crystal Palace, Stoke and Burnley to The Etihad in the next four games. In previous seasons, he has been in and around top goal scorer. Aguero is looking likey to… Read more »

Dogs against Oyston-insantiy.

Blogger Michael Moss follows up a double header to an eventful visit to Valley Parade with a trip along the M62 to Bloomfield Road, where Blackpool hosted non-league Kidderminster Harriers in the FA cup. Rememberance the Bradford Fire Disaster Sunday had a sombre start, as we prepared for our visit to Bloomfield Road. Blackpool were hosting non-league Kidderminster Harriers, with the potential of another cupset. Before leaving Bradford, we darted back to the stadium to get some snaps of the ground. Specifically the memorial to those 56 souls that tragically lost their lives on May 11th 1985 in the Bradford… Read more »

Fantasy Football – Hey Big Spender!

Our resident Fantasy Football guru Richard Beaumont aka Treakz on Twitter, having scoured the bargains, looks at the big money shots. Having spent the majority of the week googling The Samaratins number, walking perilously close to cliff tops on my holiday and losing sleep after my wild card play backfired spectacularly, this week I am looking at some of the big names that could be vital in the coming weeks, especially with injury and suspension issues hitting Paul Pogba and Sadio Mane. A friendly reminder from the blog that this weeks deadline is affected by Friday night Premier league action…. Read more »

Our resident Fantasy Football guru Richard Beaumont aka Treakz on Twitter, reviews the potential players you should be looking to get into your squad quicker than that streaker in Malta. Will the international break ever end? Feels like forever since we have seen some entertaining football but this weekend sees the return of FPL and a chance for me and many others to see if playing an early wildcard has paid off.

A Green Day at the New Lawn

Main Stand at the New Lawn home of Vegan outfit Forest Green Rovers

Newcastle fan Colin Harrison took another step towards the 92 club with a trip to the New Lawn, home of the first Vegan Football Club in the Football League. On Monday evening I recieved a text message which contained three words. Those words were ‘Forest Green Saturday’. The text was from my referee mate David Webb, who is helping me achieve my goal of reaching ‘The 92 Club’. As I had agreed to work on the Saturday in question, I had two people who I needed to persuade. The first was a colleague to cover my shift. The second, but… Read more »
