fantasy premier league news of the day – 11 August 2012

Welcome again to news of the day where we bring to you and interpret the fantasy premier league pre-season games and news of the day in a quick to digest format

pre-season games

Forest 0 v 2 WBA

Nothing much to report here except Reid returned to right back and long played up front with Odemwingie and Gera. Long scored a penalty.  hes not bad value at £6.0 but with Rosenburg Luakaku and Fortune all there its just not worth it especially as theres nothing exciting in the fixtures

Gruether 1 v 1 Stoke

Surprise surprise Begovic and Sorenson played a half each so were no closer to resolving this fantasy premier league £4.5m goal keeping riddle

wilkinson started at RB giving some hope for someone at £4.5m in the defensive line up.  New boy Cameron is also at £4.5m and started.  With Huth amazingly expected back it may not be possible to get someone in the defence at £4.5m.  Wilkinson seems the best chance although Shotton could limit that.  It will be intersting to see if Cameron can nail doen a spot at that price.  Wilson the other potential £4.5m defender looks to have competition from Dinmao kiev left back coming on loan Goran Popov. unless hes £4.5m Im not interested.   Ness as a £4.0m defender would be the dream ticket but that may be asking a little too much.

No fantasy premier league value else where at the moment.  kightly signed for stoke.  Surely Etherington will hold his place ad kightly will then battle it out with Pennant.  £5.5m is too much for me for an injury prone winger who was on loan at watford for part of last year and will be sharing game time in one of the weakest attacking sides in the division.  Plus there opening 6 fixtures arent easy – stay away even with todays goal and assist

Braga 1 v West ham 1

With West Ham having such good fixtures and a dearth of defenders at £4.0m you would really like to get a warm feeling over Demel or McCartney starting in fantasy premier league  game week 1.  Ive plucked so far for McCartney but it was demel who played the 90. ill be monitoring both in this last week.

Other news

Warnock and Hutton

Hutton and Warnock didnt travel to Germany for the Werder Bremen friendly.  This gives a chance for £4.0m RB Enda Stevens to line up on opening day.  Hes been playing the position with distinction to date.  The Bham mail speculated that Lichaj at £4.5m may also cover it.  Theres fantasy premier league value everywhere at the moment in the villa defence with only Vlaar at £5.0m likely to lineup at opening day at above £4.5m.  Stevens or Baker at £4.0m would be the real bomus.  this does assume that 1.  lambert can decide from one day to the next who to put in his team or just throw darts at the team sheet to decide and 2 he can keep more cleann sheets than the 3 pathetic ones managed by Norwich last year.

Eden Hazard and RDM

its a fewdays now back what RDM said about hazard.  i think everyone who comes on the site has seen me recommending the caoptains armband for Hazard in GW1 double game week for Chelsea.  Here below are the rather chilling words that are making me think i should be considering Torres( cue huge sigh of exasperation).  Still as i keep saying lets see what happens in the community shield

‘Of course we are looking for Eden to be incisive – but we have to be patient,’ said Di Matteo.

  1. Good article. Kightly ended up at Watford last season in order to gain fitness as MM didn’t want to risk putting him the squad of 23. An injury risk and 6 goals from 33 appearances last season (11 appearances and 3 goals whilst at Watford) and no certainty about a starting place not a good prospect.
