Name : Beka Mikeltadze
Pos : FWD
Price : 426.6K

Mikeltadze showed last season that when given the chance he will score most opportunities.

He managed to score 13 goals in his debut season and with more attacking players this season I could see him improving on that this season.



Name : Carl Jenkinson
Pos : DEF
Price : 278K

Jenkinson was great last season for city in what was a really good defence.

He offers attacking upside off set pieces so I think he could be a good asset to own.



Name : Reno Piscopo
Pos : MID
Price : 263.1K

Piscopo is a quality player who shined in a Wellington team that at times struggled.

He is underpriced in what could be a very attacking Newcastle side.

His combination with Mikeltadze will be key this season, If they combine well he could be one of the best assets to own.

Name : Luis Nani
Pos : MID
Price : 396K

Nani still has some good football in him and already in the pre season we have seen his quality.

He will offer set peice ability as well providing good service to the array of attacking options at victory.

He is underpriced for what his potential is in the A League



Name : Matthew Spiranovic
Pos : DEF
Price : 210.5K

Spiranovic will be the centre of what could be a good defence this season.

He offers alot of goal threat off set pieces which gives him alot of upside.

He is underpriced and could be one of the best value for money picks this season.


Week 9

After an international break with many FPL assets jetting off across the world we have a full Premier league fixture list for the first time in nearly a month !! And what a bumper weekend ahead of us with the North London Derby and we also have a huge Manchester derby.

We begin the Gameweek between fierce rivals Arsenal v Tottenham. There’s plenty of players to watch out for with Kane and Son looking to rewards owners and Jesus and Martinelli ready to punish owners.

There’s also a massive Manchester derby with Manchester United hoping to stop the Haaland goal scoring train , can the likes of Ronaldo and Sancho do some damage?

A rested Liverpool could be resurgent against a Potterless Brighton.. is this the week for Salah to score big again.

Haaland and Salah are expected to be the Gameweeks most popular Captain choices , with Maddison and Luis Diaz providing curveball Captain options.


We end the Gameweek with another derby a midlands derby with underperforming Leicester City playing against Nottingham Forest in a game that could deliver plenty of goals, all eyes will be on James Maddison who is expected to deliver points.

Here’s this weeks differential <10% ownership for Gameweek 9. It has to be the Foxes midfielder James Maddison at 7.8% owned and 4 returns in 8 in an under performing side his home fixture against Nottingham Forest could be to good to turn down. He will set you back 8.0m.

As always thank you everyone for reading and Good luck for Gameweek 9.

FPL Assets

Name : Florin Berengeur
Pos : MID
Price : 375.8K

Brengeur was great last season scoring 5 goals and getting 5 assists.

He can rotate anywhere in the midfield but when he plays number 10 he has alot of upside.

He was very good in transition playing balls into dangerous areas.

Hw also loves to get forward and sometimes overlaps the striker to get into the box which resulted in goals last season.

Depending on how City lineup thus season he could be a great fantasy Pick.



Name : Andrew Nabbout
Pos : FWD
Price : 380.3K

Nabbout had a good season last year scoring 5 goals and providing 7 assists.

Nabbout was behind only Maclaren for shots per game but lead the team in big chances created.

Nabbout is such an explosive player that he will always have good upside in a City team that has alot of talent.

He might not score as many goals as Maclaren but he adds the upside of assists which gives him a better floor for me.

Name : Daniel Arzani
Pos : FWD
Price : 329K

Arzani has returned to the A league to ignite his career and make a push for world cup selection.

Arzani has looked good in pre season with every game he plays, He has potential to be one or the most exciting players in the A League.

He has already scored 3 goals in pre season and with a very Macarthur attack this season he could be lethal.

There are alot of options from the Bulls but Arzani has the highest upside if he can continue to play well.



Name : Al Hassan Toure
Pos : FWD
Price : 165.3K

Toure has been on fire pre Season and looks like he might of secured a starting spot in the midfield behind Rose.

He flashed last season and with more game time he could be a great enabler this season.

He can finish if he gets the opportunity in front of goal.

If your wanting a good enabler as your 3rd option up top than Toure offers great value and if he manages to grab a starting spot week 1 he could be a good plug and play option up front.

Name : Jason Cummings
Pos : FWD
Price : 386K

Cummings flew onto the scene last season for the Mariners in what was a great debut season.

Last season Cummings backed up his scoring pedigree by netting 10 goals in his 1st season.

He was an important player in attack creating goals for his team mates with 5 assists.

Their are alot of options up top this season for Fantasy but with a full pre season he could definitely improve on last season and be a great fantasy asset this season.

He has already got off the mark in pre season and with some socceroos experience he would be a must own.



Name : Paul Ayongo
Pos : FWD
Price : 234.5K

Paul Ayongo had started his Mariners career with a bang scoring 2 goals already in the pre season.

He looks like he will partner Cummings up top in what could be a very good striker partnership.

Mariners ranked 2nd in the league last season for goals per match so I could see good upside for Ayongo at his current price.

FPL Assets

Name : Charlie Austin
Pos : FWD
Price : 329K

Austin has proven to be a consistent goalscorer throughout his career in England and is still good enough to be playing at a good level in England so he offers great upside in the A League.

Like Le Fondre in previous seasons Austin will bring top quality to a Brisbane side that need that number 9 to help with their other attacking players.

O’Donavon/Targett were their last number 9s and they were goalscoring threats in this system.

I think Austin Is very underpriced for Fantasy this season for a player that can easily score 10+ goals.



Name : Jay Oshea
Pos : MID
Price : 487.6K

Last season Oshea was a revelation in attack.

He was Brisbane’s moat creative player in attack whether it was scoring goals or getting assists.

Last season he finished with 3 goals and 10 assists which is great for Fantasy but this season with the additions they have made he could easily improve on this.

He is Brisbane’s best fantasy asset heading into the upcoming season.



Name : Riku Danzaki
Pos : MID
Price : 292.5K

Riku is a very skillful player and proved to be a great source for goals 2 seasons ago when he finished with 9 goals.

Riku is returning to Brisbane this season and could flourish in what will be a much improved side.

If he can show his previous form he could be a heavily underpriced asset this season.

Fantasy Assets

Name : Ben Halloran
Pos : FWD
Price : 318.5k

Halloran was s big reason why Adelaide United started so good last season before departing for the Korean league.

In attack he provided great service to their strikers and always found himself in great positions

This season he will look to form a devastating partnership with Craig Goodwin in attack and should see some great opportunities for Fantasy points this season.



Name : Craig Goodwin
Pos : MID
Price : 545.1K

Goodwin had an amazing season last year bit only as a player but a fantasy asset.

He finished the season with 9 goals and 7 assists which made him the highest scoring Fantasy asset for Adelaide.

With the upside of being on all set pieces he is one of the must own assets this season in what will be a good attacking side.

He is a premium price but your paying for premium upside.

Name : Javi Lopez
Pos : DEF
Price : 427.4K

Lopez had an amazing debut season last year on the pitch and in fantasy.

Not only was he great in defence he also chipped in with 3 goals and 2 assists.

He is one of the best defensive assets to own this season as he was in the 4td best defence last season.

With pretty much the same defence ad last season I could see them being decent defensively this year and with Lopez attacking threat I think he is worth the money.


Week 8

After a week off from Fantasy Football we are officially back for Gameweek 8 in what will be a shortened Gameweek with only 7 matches from 10 being played.

With this in mind and no match for the out of form Liverpool , this week has seen a large number of free hits and wildcards used with fire sales for under performing assets such as Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

We begin the Gameweek with Friday night football and two clashes in the midlands , Aston Villa v Southampton and Nottingham Forest v Fulham, I’m sure a close eye will be kept on Mitrovic from his large number new owners.

Erling Haaland and Harry Kane remain popular picks this week with favourable fixtures and all eyes will be on Newcastle as they face AFC Bournemouth at home in a fixture plenty of managers are highly invested in with Pope/Trippier defensive double ups popular.

With less games to choose from let’s head to my differential,Here’s this weeks differential <10% ownership who is under looked for Gameweek 7. It’s Evertons Anthony Gordon, a 5.5m midfielder pick with 4.3% selection makes him a pick to consider.

He has 2 goals in his last 3 and plays against a West ham side this weekend who may have a European hangover.

As always thank you everyone for reading and Good luck for Gameweek 8.

Week 6



It’s time for some more weekend football action as we approach Gameweek 6.

The first midweek Gameweek of the season is over and we witnessed another Haaland hat trick , giving big rewards for those who captained him and a sinking feeling for those managers who didn’t ( including myself)

My Gameweek 6 advice would be if you don’t have Haaland find a way to put him in, mitigatethe risk and pick shrewd differentials to claw back the lost points , just remember it’s a long season ahead we are only 6 weeks in.

Manchester City players produced the biggest hauls as Cancelo and Alvarez both hit 12pts and John Stones hit 10pts in Manchester City’s 6-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest.

Gameweek 6 has given us some difficult fixtures with a Merseyside Derby , two London Derbies and Arsenal facing there biggest test this season with a visit to Old Trafford.

For now It’s differential time,Here’s this weeks differential <10% ownership who is under looked for Gameweek 6. It’s Southamptons Captain James Ward-Prowse, a 6.5m midfielder pick with 8.9% selection makes him a pick to consider.

He Scored a stunner in this fixture last season and has 5 goals and an assist in 9 appearances against Wolves. We saw him Play in an advanced position against Chelsea in the mid week fixture, he also remains in my own classic team and this could be the gameweek for him

As always thank you everyone for reading and Good luck for Gameweek 6.
