On the Forecast: Gameweek 24

Can he replicate his 32 points a week last season?
This week On the Forecast; A huge opportunity for us as the second double gameweek of the season is looming with six(6) teams to choose from; Second wildcard is available and the best time is either this week or GW27 to activate it; This week rundown:-

Double Gamers
LIV @WOL, vs FUL
Both games seem attractive but we have been here before; The only good thing is King Kenny is in charge, expect his first win for either of these; Wolves know how to play them and I go for the home win obviously but just play all your Pool players except Konchesky (I still have him;D); Martin Kelly looks attractive for the double gameweek though; I believe Wolves are strong at home but still unpredictable; Fulham will be further explained below;

BLP vs SUN, vs MANU
The only team that have two back to back home games; Their record is not very good at home but goals will be flying for sure; Buying their defenders are not advisable who are facing two of the best defense in the league right now; Don't bet against invincible United while The Black Cats are their only chance to be honest as they continue their journey without Darren 'The big club' Bent; Blackpool attackers are your best chance;

WIG @ARS, vs AST
After convincingly dispatching WHam and Leeds United, everybody will be banking on Arsenal; But I believe that Wigan are still their boogie team so they are capable for a surprise there; My hunch goes for a draw there but I tip Wigan to narrowly lose it; Everybody will be chasing VPersie last points I supposed; Wigan have a fair chance against the new strike force Villa on the midweek; I go for a draw then; Nzog & Rodallega are very good picks;

FUL vs STK, @LIV
Mark Hughes men are on the rise and they are too good to be relegated; My honest assessment is they need to get necessary points against Stoke and have a fair chance at Anfield but then it will cancel out my Kenny Dalglish first win though:D; The best bet is one win and one draw, either one is good for me; Dempsey & SDavies to lead the attack;

AST vs MANC, @WIG
I heard that wherever Darren Bent go, he will score on his debut; Captain material maybe???;D; Tevez, Dzeko & Co are on the roll even though their defense seem leaking; Their midweek match at the DW Stadium is not a favourable option either; Two draws for my IKTS score; Villa wingers are indispensable;

MANU vs BIR, @BLP
The invincible tag make these fixtures a banker for United; The best captain choice, you pick; Nani, Rooney, & Berbatov (caution!) are all good; Ben Foster first visit to his former club and may be eager to show them what they are missing; You can count on their defense also except Rafael but a little bit wary about the Tangerines frontline; Two wins to keep the title quest intact;

I really miss their understanding

Single Gamers
NEW vs TOT
Andy Carroll is out injured so the Magpies could depend on the former hat trick hero Leon Best and attacking sub Ameobi for a finishing; St James Park is a renowned fortress but against VDV & Bale, goals will not be far away; Spurs improving defense against captain Nolan & Co. are equal to an interesting stalemate;

BLA vs WBA
Rovers are formidable at home while The Baggies just won a hard fought thriller at home after five straight losses; West Brom are desperately need their hotshot (Odemwingie) fit to get some wins especially on the road; Blackburn new manager just got a mammoth deal until 2013 (I don't know why famous people keep getting publicity especially Maradona!) and should start this with a win; A tight win and a Gamst Pedersen comeback;

BOL vs CHE
The home side know how to frustrate the top four especially the defending champion; Fantasy managers are losing faith with Monsieur Drogba as his price fell to a season low of 12.2; Same can be said with Mr Elmander but maybe he is plotting something against Ancelotti's men, who knows; Double gamers are too tempting this week as I expect them to score more than The Blues; My honest prediction would be a tight win for Chelsea;

EVE vs WHAM
Avram Grant is officially the West Ham manager for the time being after getting rejected by O'Neill; Everton continue to impress and almost registered a double against their Merseyside rival; Pienaar is out to upgrade Seamus Coleman as a sure starter; The home side are too good here and I'm banking on them to inflict a third Hammers defeat in a row; Honestly, a draw is their best chance at Goodison;
