The English Premier League season begins in less than 48 hours with matches kicking off on August 18th. As always, Team CroatianSports.com has decided to start it’s own Fantasy League for the third year running. We currently only have 49 entries compared to over 125 last year. You can always enter a team after week one, but that will put you at a disadvantage if you plan to go the entire year. All you have to do is go to http://fantasy.premierleague.com/ to get signed up, make your team, and join our league using the code below:
Since we had such a great turnout last year, Matt ‘The Golden Child’ Lebo has decided to personally sweeten the pot this season. Instead of getting a pat on the back, he will be personally sending 1st place a 2012 HNS AWAY JERSEY. Who’s game? Good Luck!
Ante: “Cilic almost always needs 4-5 sets per match to get past the no-namers. He’s never well-rested once he makes it to the Murrays, Nadals etc.”
Good point, that’s why you have to improve your ranking to get easier early round matches.
Love the Avatar!!!!!
Cilic was VERY fortunate to make the Aussie semis that year. He faced a declining Roddick in the 4th Round, who I believe just got done with a heated match the day before and played an injured Del Potro in the quarters.
He won the first set against Murray in the semis and then crashed out. Most of the big guns (top 8) usually get done in 3 sets within the first 4 rounds at these major events. Cilic almost always needs 4-5 sets per match to get past the no-namers. He’s never well-rested once he makes it to the Murrays, Nadals etc.
While they are fresh as a daisy…
@Ziva, I acknowledge many things would have to align, including luck, for Cilic to win a grand slam. He did however once “threaten” at a major – semi-finals of 2010 Australian Open. The guy has orchestrated some incredible shots, unfortunately, he’s inconsistent.
Speaking of Tennis, why doesn’t Roger Federer have the moral courage to speak out for his people – the Boers? I hope he’s not one of these self-abnegating anti-white whites who either “doesn’t care” about his own people or thinks they “deserve it”.
Petric scored twice on debut and assisted another.
Not a bad first game for fulham if you ask me.
I should have put him on my fantasy team.
I believe so. Sky’s predictions have him starting and he was one of the top 5 preseason scorers in the PL
It allowed me to use a 4-3-3. Last year if I recall correctly, it only let you use a 4-4-2.
Will Petric start tomorrow?
I guess he would fit in at Tottenham.
Here is a tip for anyone who picked Clint Dempsey. He will not be playing in Fulham’s opener against Norwich.
He is listed as a midfielder even though he is often used as a striker. It is too bad, because he plays every game and scores frequently.
I am a fan of his, but I think he may be a bit delusional about playing in the Champion’s League for an English club.
If he was that serious about Champion’s League, he would go to a “lesser” league.
Looks like Ante Vukusic could be out of Hajduk by this weekend. Probably heading to Italy.
Also, Sandra Perkovic won in the Diamond League today
I made a few comments about the game but really it’s not much more than a preseason game
@HAET……..No chance Cilic will ever win a major. First he has to win a meaningful tournament and not just these low-level events that feature none of the top players. Then he will have to find a way to get into the semis of a masters series event before we could ever consider him doing anything at a grand slam event. he is a nice player, top 20, maybe a top 10 player. But, not the kind of guy that will threaten at a major.
Why didn’t Croatian Sports report on the Bundesliga Super Cup neither before nor after the game? Mandzukic scored and Perisic played 20+ minutes. I had no idea about the game until a week later. Thanks for nothing.
That jersey really grew on me, I hope Croatia keeps that triangular design.
Djokovic just drubbed Cilic, something tells me he’s going on another scalp collecting expedition. The announcers said Djokovic “was happy Croatian water polo won gold”, I believe him. Isn’t there a Jokovic on the Croatian water polo team – the lefty on the right wing? – is he a half Serb?
Also, the announcers of said tennis match seem to think the taller you are, the physically stronger you are; why do people still equate mere height with strength?
I still think Cilic can win a major with all the cards falling into place.
Štimca muče Modrić i Kranjčar , za Makedoniju pozivnica ide – Sammiru!
‘Real Madrid će u ponedjeljak objaviti da su doveli Modrića’
I shall be victorious!
You have to read reports or know that if a big player played in CL earlier in the week, he’ll probably we benched for the weekend game. Stuff like that…
How do you figure out if your big club players will play or be rested?
80% of the 125 from last season played it out all the way through. You can tell by the points.
I wouldn’t even mind if it was a smaller group this year, as long as it stays competitive. But I change my team every Friday night.
Best get that jersey ready in size XL 🙂
Does anyone else pick a team and ignore it until the next season?
I got it this year!! Svircic has stuck it to me the past 2 seasons….
I’m not OK with that!
That jersey will be mine!
