Friday Fantasy Forecast

5 12 2008

This week’s forecast is written by my intern extraodinaire, young Liam Voykin.  I figured I gave him enough tedious grunt work for the week, he deserved to do something more enjoyable.  But if any of these players fails to boost your fantasy standing, then it’s his fault, not mine.  Have a great weekend!

Roman Pavlyuchenko (Tottenham) – Since coming over from Spartak, Moscow, he has been the Spurs go to guy. Netting his seventh goal of the season, in the Carling Cup match against Watford, he is starting to find his own in the Premier League. The quick and skillful Russian superstar has surprised many with his domination in the Euro and now his success in Tottenham. As well as the likely rumors of his Russian teammate Andrei Arshivan coming over, he will settle in even better. Soon to explode out of his expanding shell, Roman will turn many more heads his way.

Stephan Ireland (Manchester City) – His composure on the ball and excellent vision makes him a permanent City starter. Sitting second for the club with eight goals, his attacking presence allows him to be a dominant figure for the squad. If City have any chance of climbing the Premier League ladder, they need Ireland to keep up his hunger for goals. His two goals against Hull City, and a goal in each game versus Arsenal and Schalke, have kept him among the top players to pick up.

Gary Cahill (Bolton) – Sitting comfortably at ninth spot in the Premier League table, Bolton can be feeling pretty strong about themselves. Winning four out of five Premier games in November, this club can thank their defense. Only allowing four goals in those five games, Cahill is a strong part of that solid defensive line. Not only keeping goals out of the net, Gary has offensive abilities as well. Starting to grow, he is pushing up and joining the attack. With a goal coming against Sunderland, he is slowly gaining attacking confidence. Don’t be surprised to see him on the score sheet more often in the future.

Deiberson Geovanni (Hull City) – The Brazilian born striker has played for his share of clubs, Barcelona, Benfica, and Manchester City among them.  He is now leading the attack with the Tigers. With six goals in 13 games, Geovanni is at the tops of the point’s board. The surprising Hull City is in a comfortable sixth place and only three points out of fourth, currently occupied by Arsenal. A string of wins could see the Tigers dreaming of a Champions League birth.
