Would This Ever Happen in the English Premier League?

Why the Premier League Should Embrace Officiating Technology

Adventures in the Fantasy Premier League, Gameweek 34

1.  Tevez- In fantasy football, you don’t have to deal with uncooperative players. That’s why it was difficult for managers like you and me to get our heads around Mancini’s Tevez dilemma.
