Football Mailbag Time!

Football Mailbag Time!

2020-05-0456:32

Without any concrete news to report from the Premier League and FPL, we’ve turned to our listeners for topics. In this week’s “mailbag” episode, we answer questions about the state of football in quarantine. How can this season be salvaged? Will FPL ever come back? And, well, here’s an easy one: How do we define money and measure the cost of late-stage capitalism? Plus, in the most cheerful way possible, we reveal which clubs we’d most like to buy and/or destroy.

From virtual FPL and analog board games to bread baking and binging sci-fi novels, we and our listeners have come up with some great hacks for passing the time.

The Premier League and the fantasy game have very particular places in our weekly and daily lives. But, given our current crisis, virtually every aspect of sport has vanished. So we at Always Cheating decided to have an old fashioned draft to call out and draw in those specific players and teams, cherished moments of the average sports week, and other elements of following the league and our clubs that we truly miss the most.

Sports are still on hiatus, but while everyone's in social isolation, movies have become a pretty good way to get our sports fix.

From 'The Damned United' and 'Rocky IV,' to 'Major League' and 'Hoop Dreams,' our discussion hits on virtually every sport, every genre, and every mood. Let us know which of your favorite films we might have missed. Hail Cheaters!Presented by BetOnline.ag. Set up an account today and use promo code BLUEWIRE for a 100% welcome bonus.
New Rules for FPL

New Rules for FPL

2020-03-3001:15:59

Listen, we love the Fantasy Premier League game. We truly do. We love it so much that we dedicated a weekly podcast to it. But, as a thought experiment during this surreal down-time, we at Always Cheating decided to take a shot and inventing some new rules for FPL. What does the fantasy game already have that can be improved? What does it not have that can be introduced? From chips and team formations to transfer deadlines and bonus point systems, we're tweaking and perfecting virtually every aspect of FPL for its eventual and triumphant return.

With no new Premier League action or fantasy happenings, Josh and Brandon set their sights on the past and list their favorite FPL assets from recent history. And as we run through the best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and forwards, we find that "favorite" doesn't always mean what you think it means. Along the way, we reminisce about our own greatest moments playing the FPL game since we began back in 2011. Hail Cheaters!Presented by BetOnline.ag.

While the coronavirus continues to upend life as we know it, Josh and Brandon assess what this means for Premier League fans and FPL managers. Is there a chance that the season might eventually resume? Or is it over? And, if it's truly over, what are our thoughts on approaching mini-league winner payouts for a season that never truly ended? Plus, we offer up a detailed travel diary for our recent tour of England, including GW29 visits to the Emirates, Old Trafford, and the King Power, as well as appearances on the Official FPL Show with Jules Breach and James Richardson.A quick programming note during this uncertain time: Despite a lack of FPL, we'll continue to produce the Always Cheating podcast on a weekly basis with the hope of preserving a bit of joy and normalcy for our listeners.Presented by BetOnline.ag.

The action from GW28 was chaotic, to say the least, but players like Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin continue to rack up FPL points. We're digesting all of this in the context of Brandon's wildcard, which is active during this transfer window. So, who will make the cut? And who are the differentials that will help this wildcard really climb the ranks? Plus we preview GW29 fixtures and captaincy options, along with our upcoming trip to the UK.

Is it true that you can close a gap of 100 points in your FPL mini league with just eleven weeks to go? Is it false that form trumps fixtures? Is it true that Manchester United now have to be taken seriously by fantasy managers? Is it false that Kevin de Bruyne is the only Manchester City asset worth owning? Is it true that underlying stats are overrated? Is it false that there are no worthwhile midfielders priced below £6.0? We answer these questions and more, along with a preview of GW28 transfer and captaincy conundrums. Hail Cheaters!Presented by BetOnline.ag.

As GW26 and our first Premier League winter break come to their eventual conclusions, we're turning our attention to emerging and under-the-radar transfer targets from clubs like Wolverhampton, Spurs, Arsenal, Newcastle, and Leicester City. Which players who have hit recent form are actually knee-jerk fantasy moves versus those savvy picks who will actually help you make headway in the FPL ranks? Plus, we discuss the current situation with Manchester City's potential Champions League ban and how that might impact our fantasy seasons. Stick around for our preview of GW27 captaincy favorites and transfers plans. Hail Cheaters!Presented by BetOnline.ag.

There's not much in the way of FPL news as we find ourselves only three-tenths of the way through a long GW26. So, we thought, what the heck? Let's just ask our listeners to send in a bunch of random fantasy and non-fantasy questions for us to answer. Listen in as Josh and Brandon critique each other's FPL tactics, talk about how they first met, and debate who of the duo would win in a penalty shootout. Hail Cheaters!Presented by: BetOnline.AGA reminder that our London, UK, listener meet-up is scheduled for Friday, March 6, 7:00 PM until close at Coin Laundry in Farringdon. We hope to see you there!
Let's face it: Sometimes, FPL questions can be difficult, or even downright impossible to answer. This week, we are honestly and confidently tackling all of our listeners' toughest conundrums, from premium striker woes to Championship rotation threat, Leicester City's concerning form, and the prospects of the biggest January signings. Plus, we take a closer look at the GW26 fixture list, which has been spread out due to the Winter Break, and how the staggered schedule might impact our transfers, wildcards, and captaincy picks. Hail Cheaters!
We're still waiting for the final—and extremely fateful—GW24 match to be played. While we wait, Josh and Brandon discuss the possibility, and weigh the pros and cons, of triggering a wildcard ahead of GW25. And, if they were to activate a wildcard now, which players would be in their refreshed fifteen-men squad? Both Josh and Brandon run through their current selections, from goalkeepers and defenders, to midfielders and forwards. Stay tuned for a full GW25 fixtures and captaincy preview. Hail Cheaters!
With Gameweek 24 kicking off in less than 48 hours, Josh and guest co-host Eric Freeman go all in on Liverpool's (and, er, West Ham's) double-gameweek: who to target, who to triple captain, and if there's really any definitive way to pick between Mané, Salah, Trent and more with your (C) pick. We also discuss Greenwood, Martinelli, and other emerging forwards, what to do with Jiménez and Tammy, and players we may be overlooking who could also do well during the midweek fixtures. Hail Cheaters!
While Danny Ings continues his scoring rampage, and after Manchester City's masterclass at Villa Park, many FPL managers are reckoning with key players they've recently overlooked. In this episode, we discuss the likes of Mahrez, Agüero, Richarlison, Sarr, and Lacazette and whether their time in our FPL lineups has come. We also take another look at double GW24 planning and debate the idea of "points chasing" before previewing the GW23 fixtures, along with our captaincy favorites and transfer targets. Hail Cheaters!
