Betting / Form Guide

Yorkie - 4/1 favourite - last years champ and likes this format (as it was his idea) - man to beat. Solid start already. :winners:

Rinky - 10/1 - had a good run last time out - showed promise - can he adjust his tactics to go better this time :wave2:

Sweep - 8/1 - last years winner in waiting only to choke once again when having more transfers than he knew what to do with. Will be looking to upset last years finishing order. :explode:

Schlocky - 10/1 - last years surprise package - sprinting home in the final furlong to take second despite the weight penalty and height handicap. Remains to be seen if he can place a second time but should not be discounted. Zaha being dead unlikely to help cause. :Bitter:

Feets - 22/1 Always out the gate fast - he uses his transfers like he hasn't got long left but is always found wanting at the business end :OFFS:

clammers - 16/1 this filly made a late charge in other formats last year but is a consistent midfield finisher. Think Joe Allen with shorter hair and you are not far off the mark :mancdave:

weeman - 10/1 - this little fella is well handicapped and performed well last season - but does not like this trip. Always leaves at least 20 transfers to use in December meaning he bollockses his team up when showing promise. :oops:

Baz weemans mate - 100/1 rank outsider and with his tortoise team selection not hard to see why. 2 Palace midfielders. Even de Boer only does that cos he has to. Unfortunate with the outsider tag - but with Scotty taking his ball home.... :blind: :hmmm:

crooky - 16/1 - has the pedigree but usually enters so many teams he does know if he is coming or going. If he gets his shit together could threaten. :yellow:

timmsy - 12/1 - age has caught up with this once proud stallion. Tales of past conquests are now just distant memories. One to avoid. :oldgit:

Yani - 60/1 off to a flyer - but will be bored by September. Non stayer over the longer trip. Will end the season with a minimum of 20 transfers remaining and will be calling Schlocky out for having beaten him again. :admin:

Mintman - 12/1 - another player who is always thereabouts - but needs to raise his game to convert into the money spots :roll:

Pottsy - 10/1 - threatened last year then faded. Talks a good game (Warren Buffet) - thinks he can see the future (he can't) :what:

henke7 - 6/1 - dangerous but this not his favourite format. Solid team, but has gambled without Kane :slarty:

crompton - 12/1 the nearly man in recent years - solid mid table performer - another who will be praying zaha is only injured for 8 weeks ;pray:

Nuttie - 8/1 always in the mix although accidentally picking Trippier may be genius or disaster :injured1:

Tim bisley - 10/1 solid player but blinded this year by Huddersfield making their PL debut. Will be spewing when Hazard disappears to Spain before the end of the transfer window. Team seems full of enablers. :yikes:

Talcy - 20/1 more suited to the shorter game - every year TSO makes an obscure pick who proves to be shyte. Tom Ince come on down. :timmsy:

Lukaku has barely missed a game in 3 years so probably due one.
