Fantasy Premier League Tips: Gameweek 34

Fulham and Liverpool Fans: Beware of Bobby Gould

Previously, I’ve written about how English soccer matches sound better on radio than television, as well as how the FA Cup third round is made for radio not TV. Richard Whittall from the A More Splendid Life blog agreed. However, I was wrong. What I should have said is that […]
