We’ve moved! Fantasy Gaffer is please to have joined the amazing team at PlayTogga – Fantasy Football Rebooted. All of our Fantasy Premier League news, stats and analysis are being published under the Togga banner. While we continue to guest post on other sites, the bulk of our content will be available daily on the Blogga, and very few articles will appear here at our old home. Please do join us at Togga. We are continually rolling out new features, new games and provide exceptional gameplay. The game is not traditional salary cap, but is a draft based game where every team in a league is unique and EPL players appear in only one squad per league. Every player in Togga is fully transferable throughout the season. Users are free to sign a free agent from the player pool, release a player from their squad or transfer a player to another Togga squad in a player-exchange. Unlike traditional fantasy soccer platforms where every team sheet contains the same names, Togga allows users to build their own Best XI, retain a full bench of six players, and actively manage rosters to reflect up-to-the-minute information. It’s next-level Fantasy Premier League, and we’re proud to be a part. See you there. -Cooper
We’ve returned with our signature fantasy premier league tips production – Last Minute Tinkers. All 10 Barclays Premier League fixtures chatted-up, brought home and kicked out before breakfast. Enjoy.
Arsenal v Fulham
The top defense in the Premier League will face Martin Jol’s high-powered offense in gameweek 11. Long-time readers will know how frequently we tout the cost-effective defensive options and both sides here are deep in the defensive ranks with several inexpensive selections on either side. For that reason we have split this match differently and we’re looking at the players by position.
Defensively, we’re not trusting anyone. With Arsenal having been blanked only once at home in the League and Fulham sitting on 21 goals to day, both sets of defenders are likely to concede at least one. Only 3.3% of fantasy premier league managers own Gunners’ ‘keeper Mannone and 4.9% of managers own Mark Schwarzer.
EPL Fantasy saw a number of fine performances from Barclays Premier League players in their midweek Champions League encounters. Both Arsenal and Manchester City finished the day with 2-2 draws, one leaving the Gunners in second place and the other all but closing the book on the Citizens European aspirations. We’ve already published one post this week, yesterday’s Up The Tweets!, and will endeavor to have more new content tomorrow.
Manchester City 2-2 Ajax
Yaya Toure 22′
Sergio Aguero 74′
Manchester City starting XI: Hart; Nastasic Zabaleta Kompany Clichy; Nasri Garcia Barry Yaya; Tevez Aguero
Substitutes: Balotelli (Garcia 45′); Dzeko (Tevez 66′); Kolarov (Barry 85′)
While the result does nothing for Roberto Mancini’s side but stave off the inevitable, the goals for Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero are a welcome site for a side with two goals in their previous three fixtures. In Barclays Premier League action, City was held scoreless against West Ham last time out and managed only one goal in their 1-0 home win over Swansea the weekend before.
