That can be said for a number of players who have gone from World Cup no-hopers to having a realistic chance of a spot in the 30-man preliminary squad which is announced today.

There is a massive selection headache for Ruining Football with the double gameweek for four teams heavily influencing the starting eleven. Another week, another gamble.

Fulham’s American midfielder Clint Dempsey was the saviour for Ruining Football in Gameweek 13 after what was a very much below average weekend for the team. If only I had gone for Jimmy Bullard instead of Geovanni…….. Fantasy football is very much a game of hindsight, and after coming up with the less than original […]
