Eytexi has gone early with his second Wildcard in Allsvenskan Fantasy as he looks to save his season from the impending abyss of anonymity 

After a lofty finish of 42nd last season, he's waaaaaaay down in three thousand and something'th place... 

He takes us through his picks for the upcoming weeks and has the stats and the eye-test to back up his choices

If you're thinking of playing your Wildcard anytime soon, this is...

We're not only back discussing Eliteserien, we've also hopped across the border to talk all things Allsvenskan.

We look at the games from Runde 16 and pick out some top performers as well as looking ahead at the upcoming gameweek

Berisha is here, Jerry hasn't stopped scoring and Zeidan has made an explosive start to his Malmo career - this league has it all and we're bringing it to you

ReindeerHotdog has pulled the trigger on an EARLY SECOND WILDCARD this week (Runde 17) and sees Glimt, Rosenborg and Lillestrøm as the teams to back

At time of recording Ingason was yet to be added to the game (he's since been added as an 8.5m midfielder) but Tengstedt and Braut Brunes remain a mystery - as new comes, this will be addressed on Twitter

Apart from a couple of planned moves pending those additions, the team is pre...

ReindeerHotdog is back from his random sojourn across Europe & brings you all the stats you could ask for and MORE.

We look at the latest set of games in the league, look at which teams are worth investing in who has stood out as good fantasy picks.

With more of a focus on how the non-fantasy assets allow the more attacking players to get returns, this episode frames our statistics in a more helpful way - that is, we're loo...

Goals galore in the first bunch of group games with France in particular looking as though they absolutely mean business.

Some stand out players for a lot of teams but it looks as though Eytexi's strategy for targeting team performance and the result is the best way forward...

Luckily nobody who had a good team captained Geyoro otherwise it would be game over already!

We chat about the first lot of games, our favourite moments ...

After the Sarpsborg 08 number 1 tore a ligament in his thumb, we decided to check in on the Pod favourite and see how he was getting on.

We recorded back in June around the time of his injury and the plan was not to wait until now to upload it. But hey, better late than never and Anders provides real insight into how his injury has affected him and his teammates and how the club are supporting him.

As ever he's eager to hand ou...

Runde 12 had plenty of talking points including a referee auditioning for WWE, a couple of surprise defeats and exceptional individual performances despite clocking up no returns whatsoever! Naturally we sink our teeth in and bring you match reports and our opinion on what went down.

We might have neglected our Pod team lately, but we rectify that during this episode as we put together the C&K Wildcard and highlight the most es...

So, it's that time again. We look over all the events of Runde 12 as we also cast our gaze ahead to the incoming Runde 13.

Quite a few players stood out, while even more failed to impress - it felt like a lottery in which none of us wanted to participate but were charged far more than the cost of the tickets. It was not a happy time for most of us.

With Berisha out, Sigurd Haugen leaving the league and form eluding some players...

We've been looking forward to this one for a while and after a lot of research and doing our best to make sure we don't embarrass ourselves, we've taken the plunge to provide some content on the Women's EURO 2022 tournament.

The Fantasy game is very different to what we're used to Eytexi goes through the ins and outs of the rules, where the game differs from ESN/ASN/FPL and how you can get the most out of those ...

We go over what happened in Runde 11 with our reports and also look ahead to the upcoming gameweek.

Kristiansund have two games this week but are they worth investing in or should we be picking players from the teams they play?

We recorded before we found out that Molde would have a DGW - we do recommend Fofana and Grødem as it stands, but even more so now they have two fixtures...

It's been a long time coming but we finally have some Allsvenskan content for you guys!

We've thrown ourselves headfirst into all the stats and come up with a pretty comprehensive yet concise season recap to ensure you're ready to hit the ground running in Runde 11

Top performing teams and their players are analysed as well as some potentially hidden gems or at least underpriced and maybe undervalued options, too

This one is all about Eytexi and his wildcard. He's planned this for a good while and if you're looking to play yours, I'd say hear the guy out - he tends to know what he's talking about!

It's safe to say that recent transfer and injury news has thrown a spanner in the works and if the Molde-Jerv game is called off, well, that's far from ideal, BUT that's the beauty of the Wildcard - you can keep changin...

We're shaking things up again this week and bringing you our own match reports for Runde 11.

We're looking at stats, style of play, standout players and once again diving headfirst into the rough looking for any diamond-shaped things we can find. 

Fofana, Vecchia and Ofkir were exceptional last week but should we consider them going forward? 

Should we be worried after Viking lost at home and Sebulonsen blanked AGAIN?

As promised, in Part 2 we look at the best forwards in the league to date as well as mulling over exactly why certain teams are doing better than others.

We also offer our top 5 forwards for the rest of the season - whoever you agree with, be sure to vote on Twitter!

Some teams have been overperforming, others underperforming and you guessed it, some are exactly where they should be - we go through all of that so you don't have...

Over two (pretty long...) episodes James and I get stuck into a lot of data to see who the best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, forwards AND teams have been.

In Part 1 we look at goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders - we judge their Fantasy performance to date, as well as how good they've been statistically. There are some surprises as well the obvious recommendations...

Yes it's over an hour but oh it's definite...

No witty title this week - we're just going over what happened in Runde 9, picking out key events, standout players and teams who are looking good for investment when we get back underway.

Some players will be away on international duty, while others will be in training and there may even be some friendlies at some point. Plenty can change between then and now, but hey, that's just more time to think about what to do with y...

As James is being kept busy with more preparation for upcoming university exams, I'm once again joined by Jacob Silkstone for for a look at what happened in Runde 8, as well as discussing how to navigate through Runde 9 and beyond...

We go over what has gone right for us so far (if anything...) and look at a few ways to get ahead of your rivals, including playing your Spissrush chip - could this be the best time to use it?

This episode we look at who you should be going in for to get the best out of Runde 8 and beyond.

But there's a twist - we're launching a mini two-week competition for anyone lucky enough to listen...

If you're interested in joining, just follow the rules and at the very least you could win a Caribou & Kräfta mug along with a few other goodies.

Good luck!
