    The Fantasy Faithful #14: King Kane, lacklustre City, Bam-fraud and FPL gameweek 10

    The Fantasy Faithful #14: King Kane, lacklustre City, Bam-fraud and FPL gameweek 10

    There were mixed emotions on the show this week as the two lads experienced wildly differing fortunes with their fantasy teams.

    On the latest episode of The Fantasy Faithful podcast, Ste McGovern and Dara Curran look back at a week that featured no Mo Salah but plenty of other high-scoring midfielders in Fantasy Premier League, namely Bruno Fernandes and Heung-min Son.

    There’s a few regrets to recount from FPL gameweek 9, Dara finally changes his mind on Patrick Bamford, we drag Manchester City’s lacklustre attack over the hot coals and fawn over Harry Kane, despite the fact he didn’t have a shot on Saturday.

    We also give our captain’s picks, potential transfers, differentials going under the radar, the statistics that caught our eye, and our guaranteed Lock of the Week for gameweek 10 (spoiler: they’re playing Fulham this weekend).

    Hosts: Ste McGovern, Dara Curran (Fulhamish, Planet FPL)

    The Fantasy Faithful #13: What to do with Mo Salah, keep or sell Son & Kane?

    The Fantasy Faithful #13: What to do with Mo Salah, keep or sell Son & Kane?

    The international break can finally be put behind us and we can look forward to Fantasy Premier League once again with Gameweek 9 on the horizon. 

    In the latest episode of The Fantasy Faithful podcast, Ste was joined by Dara and Harry to survey the wreckage of a disastrous international window which has turned up so many injuries and coronavirus positives over the last week. 

    We look at who impressed us while on international duty, what we should do with Liverpool's Mo Salah now that he has Covid-19, and debate whether we should keep or sell Harry Kane and Son Heung-min ahead of a trick run of fixtures. 

    We also discuss Harry's wildcard, and give our captain's picks, differentials, and guaranteed Lock of the Week for Gameweek 9 of FPL.

    90's Football Hall of Fame: Muzzy Izzet

    90's Football Hall of Fame: Muzzy Izzet

    The latest inductee into the prestigious and totally legitimate 90's Football Hall of Fame is Leicester City legend Muzzy Izzet.

    Possessing one of the all-time great footballer names in Premier League history, Izzet was a key member of that romantic Leicester team of the nineties that won two League Cups and punched well above their weight in the top-flight. 

    Long before the Foxes won the Premier League title, this was a true golden age for the East Midlands outfit and Izzet was their star midfielder. The London-born Turkish international was a hard-working number 10 with a penchant for wonder goals. As Stephen Tudor remarks on the podcast, Izzet was "a fucking brilliant footballer", but he was also "a right little bastard".

    On the 90's Football Hall of Fame podcast, Ste McGovern is joined by Peter Henry and the other Ste to chat about why we loved watching Izzet so much, his finest goals for Leicester, and why he never moved to a bigger club.

    We also discuss his unusual initiation with the Turkish national team, the most stylish managers in the Premier League, and reminisce on managers who used to smoke in the dugout.

    The Fantasy Faithful #12: Which Premier League teams are actually good?

    The Fantasy Faithful #12: Which Premier League teams are actually good?

    The Premier League is away for a week to make room for an international break no one asked for, but we are still here to talk everything fantasy football. 

    In the latest episode of The Fantasy Faithful podcast, Ste was joined by regular guest Dara Curran and debutant Srini to take a broad look at FPL. We debate over which teams are genuinely good and bad, and discuss the players that have particularly impressed us. 

    We also try to figure out what is going on with the underwhelming Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, why Bruno Fernandes is the only Manchester United option to consider, and look at which teams have the best fixtures leading up to Christmas.

    The Fantasy Faithful #11: The best Danny Ings replacements & GW8 preview

    Mixed fortunes for the respective Fantasy Premier League teams of our two hosts this past week, but one thing is almost always guaranteed: Ste's captain doing absolutely nothing. 

    In the latest episode of The Fantasy Faithful podcast, Ste was joined by Harry to discuss the best forwards to replace the injured Danny Ings, Arsenal's surprisingly solid defence, and why Manchester United continue to confound and confuse us.  

    We also give our captain's picks, potential transfers, differentials going under the radar, the statistics that caught our eye, and our guaranteed Lock of the Week for Gameweek 8 of FPL.

    The Fantasy Faithful #10: The best budget midfielders & GW7 preview

    After a frustrating week in which very few of the big hitters got any points, The Fantasy Faithful is back to pick over the bones of the previous week's action and look ahead to the next one.

    In the latest episode of The Fantasy Faithful podcast, Ste was joined by Harry to discuss the best budget midfielders in FPL right now, why Trent Alexander-Arnold is on thin ice, and the attractiveness of West Ham United, whose players are looking more viable by the week. 

    We also give our captain's picks, potential transfers, differentials going under the radar, the statistics that caught our eye, and our guaranteed Lock of the Week.
