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.

Another week in the books. Did anyone know that libraries still exist? Crazy, I drove past one and thought it was a mausoleum. I spelled that right first time and I’m extremely impressed. Either that or my spellcheck is at the pub.  Anyways, how is everyone’s team doing? And, no that wasn’t meant to be rhetorical.  We seriously care, why else would we give you daily coverage of everything from rankings to previews to who to transfer in for each week?  We aren’t just glorified wordsmiths, we are fans who actually play the game.  So today we focus on the transfer targets for Week 17.  It is a catchy week with some fixtures that look like no-doubters, but I have a feeling they won’t be.  Best game of the week has to be the Arsenal/Liverpool match.  Either way, you shake it this week there will be footie on, so that’s a good week for me.  It’s sorta like waking up on this side of the grass, as long as it’s there, you’re good to go.  Just don’t walk in front of a bus haphazardly.  See you later on in the week for the rankings and other assorted sundries we offer ya. Cheers!

Like every other week, we focus on the transfer targets for every week.  The unfortunate thing this is like panda watch with the news of Sergio Aguero being sidelined for at least a month.  This news has people doing one of two things: They are either scrambling to fill their roster with the next man up on the forward roster tree,  or they are walking around with £12m burning a hole in their pocket and looking for the best way to maximize their roster moving forward.  Well regardless of which category you are in, all is well, there are plenty of guys to get you through the next month.  So breath keep reading and follow the advice that we give you.  We are basically the Jim Jones of fantasy soccer, without all the drink the punch kinda stuff.  Enjoy the Week 16 transfer ideas.

If you haven’t noticed, I completely have retired the transfer day theory.  This week’s accelerated schedule has landed your regularly scheduled program in a caffeine induced comma.  It’s doctor has recommended continuous karaoke sessions, and a wrist band that entitles it to unlimited rides at the local carnival.  So this week’s transfers come with alot of questions, because if you are reading this there are still games today.  Games to drink to, games to stagger home from.  So read responsibly is basically what I am saying.  Friends don’t let friends transfer drunk, and yes smart guy buzzed transferring still counts.  Enjoy the fixtures today and we will see you tomorrow as the shortened week continues and we roll toward the weekend fixtures of Week 15.

Feeling a little rushed? Well, the accelerated schedule this week give us three games in eight days for all clubs.  That makes me happy, not only does it turns soccer into basketball or hockey, but even better, it’s the beautiful game and we should as much as possible.  Just be heady that the short week will cause all type of physio nightmares for your projected line-ups, and we all know how close to the vest they keep these line-ups.  So make sure you have viable bench options with zero injury concerns as filler for your starters, cause ya never can have enough playable talent.  This week I am fully vested in taking advantage of plays against Hull and Leicester as both teams are scraping to get by and look nothing short of teams to get relegated right now. Enjoy the quick turn around and I will see you all tomorrow with Week 14 rankings.

Today is the first day of a busy stretch for anyone who plays FPL.  3 games in 8 days time, and it all starts with this week.  Are you ready?  No, me either.  I am going to wear out the home row keys this week, invest in some cases of RockStar and just type goodness for you.  Whether you like it or not you are going to be barraged with info, so much info that it will be coming out of your keyster.  That’s the first time I have ever typed the word keyster, so if it isn’t spell-corrected, you know where to stick it.  So enjoy the new week’s first fantasy pipe bomb of knowledge that we are dropping on you with the Week 13 transfer targets.

In a week that never seemed to end, from an EPL perspective, we finally have the unrivaled Transfer Tuesday.  “It took me forever to get here” said Tuesday. The traffic and the international travel was very exhausting. So Tuesday’s from here until the end of time, we will look at some key transfers that either look good price-wise, or just look good from a match-up perspective.  It’s usually a pick on the bottom three-fest from week-to-week, well, to be honest, that’s where you get the best chance to maximize on a crap team.  The bottom three this year are turning into the bottom five very fast, as they have only managed to muster 14 points out of a total of 90.  That my friends, and several enemies, is just not very good pitch-work for those clubs.  So if you are torn between starting someone versus West Ham or Crystal Palace, for the joy of common sense please just read that stat that I so whole heartily researched.  Enjoy the week to come as we jump back into the rankings and other fantasy EPL goodies through the week.
