1. GW36 Preview: Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski could offer valuable points in closing weeks


Our Preview for GW36 is live and Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski makes the headlines after an impressive 4 goals in his previous 2 games. @Mark_Jones86 provides a full run through of the upcoming gameweek and provides the FY insight into potential picks for your team this week.

Now removed of the pressure associated with a title race, Arsenal seem to have gone back to playing attractive, attacking football, at least if the second half against West Ham and the Hull game which followed are anything to go by.

A decisive Premier League weekend will see Liverpool host Chelsea knowing that a win would place them within touching distance of the Premier League title. Will this affect your fantasy selections?

3. David Moyes and Manchester United were never right for each other

Quiet start to the week then with only the small matter of the Moyes mess to navigate!! The departure of David Moyes from Manchester United may not have came as a surprise to many, and we provided our take on the situation with a feature article on Monday evening from @Mark_Jones86 ….


And so it came, with a devastating thump, after a visit to his former stomping ground Goodison Park.

Manchester United had taken David Moyes from Everton in the summer because of the good work he had done on that particular patch of Merseyside, stabilising the club and generally making them a nuisance for the bigger sides in the land.

But that is really all they were. A nuisance. And only ever one when they played at home, too.

Whenever Moyes’s Everton faced a big game or a big opportunity they would often go into their shells and fail to grasp the nettle. In 11 years at Goodison Moyes never won a trophy, a Merseyside derby at Anfield, an away match at any of the other big clubs or even many friends. He did well to keep Everton in the mix for the European places whilst lacking the capital of some of their rivals, but as was evident from the boos he received on Sunday, by the end he wasn’t as universally liked as many would have had you believe.

5. Chelsea back in Champions League action


Moving on with Champions League in full flow this week our counterparts from @FantasyiTeam gave their take on the UCL games from their own Fantasy Perspective.

We did toy with the idea of running an individual Champions League game… But realistically we already struggle to keep up to speed with the Hollyoaks omnibus as it is!

That’s why FantasyYIRMA recommends Fantasy iTeam if you are looking for Champions League Fantasy Action.

Best of luck for Gameweek 36 from the team at FantasyYIRMA
