Dang, it feels like forever since I wrote about the weekly goings on.  I have missed you like I miss my toilet seat, usually a lot, and sprayed all over.  This Transfer Tuesday is kind of irrelevant for some because if you did it right, you used your wildcard this week and your roster should be ready to go.  For the few of you that didn’t, well, here are some cheaper under the carpet type ideas that most people probably aren’t using this week.  So you can either use them to augment your roster or completely ignore it, curse at me and kill my pet canary.  Either way, I win, because I hate that bird… it was left to me by a room share friend that over-stayed his welcome and always smelled like summer sausage, but I digress.  So enjoy the week of goodies that Razzball has to offer you leading up to game time on Saturday for Week 23.  As always….. Cheers!

So the end is neigh my friends. We’ve reached the fourth and final installment of our January Transfer need list for each team in the Premiership. Up to this point very few teams have addressed the issues laid out in these posts, with the exception of the defending champions of course. Last week we discussed Manchester United and theireir laundry list of rumored targets, and in previous posts we’ve covered Liverpool and  Arsenal. Those three clubs could/should have the biggest impact on potential new fantasy assets coming into our FPL world. At the end of the day the January transfer window is less about known commodities moving to greener pastures and more about what new options we can look forward to buying. Players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Luis Suarez, and Papiss Cissé are all former January new bloods that had second half impact on FPL squads. So the question remains who will be the new blood of 2015? Will there be any shiny new assets worth buying or will we be looking at the same old schmucks with different kits?

One week is down in the whole “transfer burning a hole in your pocket”, with two more to go as we start to reach now or get off the crapper.  Listen, I get how tempting it is to just go crazy and set yourself up for the one week fix, but you need to look ahead longer than just week 22.  There are still 18 weeks to go, and after this free one, you only get one transfer per week. And no, I do not recommend giving away the four points unless desperate, on drugs, or desperately on drugs.  So sit tight, that’s an order!  In another week, the folks (that’s me and Ralph) will be holding your hand and breaking down the remaining schedule and give you our view of the who’s, the what’s, and the guys that you wanna roster for the duration of your run to the title in your respective leagues.  This week, we have some decent gambles from the one and done perspective of transfers.  Some return from injury, some are new to the league and then there is Andy Carroll.  In a league all to himself, ponytail and all. So good luck this week and as always, cheers!

Last week we began our in depth look into the transfer needs for every club in the Premier League. We made it from Arsenal to Manchester City, and over the next two days we’ll cover the remaining ten clubs. It’s already been an interesting window with a couple of big names moving clubs. The breaking news as of writing this is that Swansea has sold star striker Wilfried Bony to defending champions Man City for £28m. Smokey will dig into the FPL repercussions of this move later today. In many ways this move is the mechanism that will move the needle here in January. It gives some clarity to clubs like Liverpool who will now focus their attention to potential other forward options like Christian Benteke.  But that’s enough for the clubs we’ve already discussed, onto Part 3.

Can you feel that weight in your pocket? I know that I can, and I’m sooooo tempted to use that free wildcard that everyone has in the bank right now. It itches so much, I know I have it. It’s almost as if I feel like a crackhead, but with free multiple moves. Well, as I check myself into the NA of footie transfers, peep this week’s transfer targets for the slower, one at a time crowd. Or, go crazy throw on some mom jeans, and dance around throwing whimsical transfers to the wind. I don’t care, all I can do is advise you of who to choose, how many is all on you kid. I will say, that the if the itchy feeling doesn’t go away there is some home remedy type stuff with baking soda, some ladybugs, and a left-handed set of golf clubs, that usually cures all ills if it so happens not to be the transfer itch. So have a look, hell, even stare at my ideas for the Transfer Tuesday Targets for Week 21. Cheers!

Yesterday, we started our feature on the January Transfer window and targets for each team. Just as we did in part one we’ll discuss developing situations, some rumors, and mostly my opinion of each club’s shortcomings. Today we’re onto part two as we take a look at the next five teams in alphabetical order. This post will cover Everton to Manchester City. If you have updates, news, or rumors to add, post them in the comments and we can discuss.

Over the next few days we’ll take a look team by team at the January transfer needs around the league. We’ll discuss potential targets, some rumors, and mostly my opinion of each club’s shortcomings. We’re going to break this up into four parts, five teams each post, four posts total. Today we look at the first five teams in alphabetical order, this means we’ll cover Arsenal to Crystal Palace. It’s tough to tell if all of these moves will have FPL implications, but it’s important to know the layout of the league and what players could be worth targeting with your wildcard. Unfortunately few major splashes are ever made in January, and of late it’s become more notorious for it’s thumps. If you have updates, news, or rumors to add, post them in the comments and we can discuss.

Week-to-week, without fail, we cover the transfer targets of interest for the upcoming fixtures. This week we start with the first games of 2015 and the official start of the second half if the EPL season. Some important notes this week, if you are holding onto anyone of value that play in the Asian Cup, you can show them the door. Please, blog, may I have some more?

These quick rebound of games, reminds me of a the great east coast philosopher, Christopher Wallace.  “Your flight leaves at eight, her plane lands at nine, my game just rewinds.”  Now there really isn’t much difference between the playa-game and fantasy footie.  Well, maybe there is, and I am just not seeing it as I am a Monk, and have an ugly haircut and make beer and wine in my cave chalet.  Sworn to be ugly, drink and report fantasy goodies to all y’all.  It’s a pretty sweet gig, and yes, I get satellite in my cave.   Have to, got to…  Satellite dish is run through a pretty stellar stalagmite.  I am the fantasy spelunker basically.  So with the quick turn around, make sure you have your caged canary, a good mindset on the injuries and a few buck in your pocket to pad your three reserves with all usable options because line-ups will be in flux up until game time.  Enjoy the most exciting week of football since last year’s holiday week.  I wish there was a more appropriate answer there, but there really isn’t, because it happens every year.  Get excited and as always good luck.  Cheers!

Another week down the toilet.  Dumb question: does the water in the fictional toilet we are referring to run clockwise or counter clockwise? It doesn’t really matter, was just curious as random sundries run through my head.  Like, why do people always say that you better be careful or you will wake up dead one day?  If I wake up dead, am I really dead and just awake while in the act of death… or am I not really dead and a zombie?  Crazy thoughts I told ya!  I haven’t eaten all day, and I’m running on three chocolate cookies and a juice box of tropical punch that tastes nothing like the tropics.  So where were we? Oh, yeah, we are half way through the season… This is when you look at your roster and say we can do this.  Use your wild card now, set yourself up for the next free wild card.  Maximize your players this week, as there will be a lot in flux with rosters. And make sure that you have three usable bench options.  None of those garbage guys who are suspiciously cheap, they are cheap because they haven’t played since the Ford administration!  Be smart this week, load up on useful bench players and as always… good luck.
