The Gaffers are back and it seems that everyone's had a good Fantasy Football week as green arrows are the talk of the town. We ponder who to pick from in form Liverpool, and how you should probably just avoid West Ham players altogether, unless you fancy a beer. We answer the usual social media questions, try to keep our exceptional run of tips going... and Tom has problems keeping up with the conversation as he hasn't brushed his ears. Seriously.
Game week 5 is over and ‘Wildcarding’ is the talk of the town. The Gaffers talk through a few options for your new look team and answer your questions which range from whether Aguero should return, to which player you’d like to bathe. Little Dommy Monaghan has some more inquisitive gems and Tom proves that sometimes a good quiz name doesn’t make for a good quiz.
Aguero might be taking a break but Tom, Ash & Craig aren't as The Gaffer Tapes returns for another week of FPL news, tips and made up proverbs. With Lukaku's hat trick saving some people's week, the Gaffers talk striker options for the coming weeks and see what a low scoring gameweek has done to the top 10. They mispronounce some names in Tweets for my Tweet, get a voicemail from Dom Monaghan in a monastery and read your increasingly bizarre emails. Tom plucks another classic quiz from the archives and the guys make their picks for gameweek 5.
Due to their growing success and international popularity, the Gaffers now refuse to be in the same room as each other. But thanks to modern technology (and Tom's typewriter) the three lads are here to review the last game-week, answer the eternal question of Zlatan or Aguero... or neither, plus there's a lot of talk about wildcards and even more about pizzas and Megan Fox.
The 2016/17 season starts with a bang (kind of). The Gaffers are here to review the opening game-week, point out where you all went wrong and persuade you that no matter how bad it was; you don't need to wildcard yet! There's the usual social media questions, the first round in Tom's big quiz and we give you some more genuinely decent tips for the forthcoming weeks. Who would have thought?
The Gaffers are back for another pre-season podcast and this time the FPL site is actually live! There's no more wild speculation, just hard stats and facts... and nob gags. We take an unusually professional and in depth look at who is over and under-priced, we answer your questions on more than just Twitter, we reveal some of our incredible prizes that could be yours in the 2016/17 season and we drop the PIN to the most competitive fantasy premier league out there. Boom. There's also a wolf and some cheese.
The Gaffers are back for a pre-season podcast, recorded just before the FPL site (finally) went live... textbook. Hear the speculation, witness the guesswork, experience the not-really-knowing-what-the-hell-is-going-on. No changes there then. Tom also dons the Quiz Wizard's Cloak and we have not 1, not 2, not 4: but THREE special announcements.
It’s time to say goodbye to the 15/16 season but not without The Gaffers having a quick look back at what went right and what went wrong. They announce the final top 10, answer your end of season tweets and have a look ahead to the Euros. There’s a Best of Quiz and a genuinely side splitting anecdote from Tom, welcome at any dinner party (unless Lee Sharpe is there).
Craig and Ash take the helm this week, as Tom takes up a new hobby of fatherhood. They discuss the second double game week, whether it's worth the hype and try to guide you to one last moment of genius in the last week of FPL. As always, they go through the league, answer your tweets on everything from celebrations to cereal and Tom even makes 2 minute cameo about which Arsenal player to pick.
The season is nearly over but that doesn’t mean The Gaffers are dumbing down. Rather incredibly this week’s episode not only has FPL tips, football chat and a quiz but also a rather surprising interview with actor Dominic Monaghan. Tom, Ash and Craig do their best at remaining professional. You can be the judge of whether they succeed.
