Written by Mr. Niall Hawthorne We have reached the end of the road. The cul-de-sac of Fantasy Premier League greets us once more, and upon your arrival you will either be lauded as a hero or mocked as a failure. As ever there are winners and losers, but as with life it’s the taking part […]
As the whole world struggles to get to grips with the effect of rampant inflation, those of us in the FPL community merely raise an eyebrow, shrug our shoulders and get on with it. For this is nothing new to us, is it dear friends? When you’ve seen the inflation in the likes of Salah, […]
Written by Niall Hawthorne Four GW’s left. It’s now or never. I’ve seen more chip strategy analysis than I have Russian-invasion analysis, which gave me an idea.

The Premier League will no doubt unveil it’s ‘Winter Ball’, which is never blue, even though it feels like it should be. The clocks will turn back an hour, for most. Brexiteers hope and pray it turns back to when […]
Farewell Steve Bruce, we hardly knew thee. Actually, that’s bobbins, we know thee only too well. 1,000 games? Man dear, that’s one hell of an achievement for him, and I couldn’t damn him with more faint praise if I tried. Still though, that’s a nice payoff if rumours are to be believed. In any case, […]
Written by @NiallHawthorne Yet another international break draws to a close and we can all get back to the real business of FPL, free from these ridiculous breaks to our fantasy football rhythm for…wait, what?…another one in four weeks’ time? Oh for the love of all that is holy, sweet, divine, innocent and pure. All […]
Written by @NiallHawthorne I’ve been amused this week by the contrast between Britain and Ireland in relation to the supposed ‘post-pandemic new normal’. In Ireland they were told they’re likely to get a new Bank Holiday as a thank you to front-line workers, and the Irish people in general, for their fortitude throughout the crisis. […]
