With Joe Hart’s lack of form and Asmir Begovic scoring against Southampton at the weekend the subject of goalkeepers has become very relevant over the last week or so. One of the few clubs who have no qualms over their keeper is Tottenham Hotspur who in Hugo Lloris posses the best in the league at this moment in time.

Sitting in front of Arsenal vs Chelsea last night it seemed obvious that the league cup really should be taken a little more seriously. Whilst fixture congestion certainly played a significant part in the starting elevens in this particular game, it clouds the main issue; the league cup means nothing to far too many teams any more.

Whilst the majority of the Champions League debate focuses on who will win it, Viktoria Plzen are 10,000/1 outsiders to lift the most prestigious of Club Trophies. But should they really be that big, or even bigger, or are there teams who have even less of a chance than their odds suggest?

The draw for the Dream Football League groups was carried out on Thursday evening. The draw was carried out and witnessed by Ryan Keaney and Chris Mayer. They were both happy the draw was fair and correct.

Right. The auction part of the Dream Football League is now out of the way (pretty much) and this is where the real competition begins. In the next few hours, the draw for the groups will be contacted.
Should you care; the matches will be simmed on FIFA 14. They will be 6 minutes per half long and set to “Legendary” difficulty. In the meantime, we need everyone to email details of their preferred formations, starting line-up, tactics and squad numbers. Each team will be created on FIFA Creation Centre and will be available to everyone that has a copy of the game and internet access to download.
Send your email with all the necessary information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO NOT SEND AN EMAIL IF YOU PLAN ON MAKING CHANGES TO YOUR SQUAD. IF YOU SEND THE EMAIL, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO MAKE ANY MORE TRANSFERS. Sorry for shouting.

Whisper it quietly but there is something going on in North London at the moment. Arsenal are currently sitting on top of the Premier League table after the opening seven games and confidence is sky high. Following a pre season where confidence appeared at an all time low their manager Arsene Wenger has lead his side to nine victories in the club’s first dozen games.

The Free Agent Round will kick-off at midday (14 hours from now). Do not make any signings before midday as they will not count.
The round will finish at 20:00pm (GMT) on Thursday 10th October 2013. That is also the deadline for any transfers/trades between clubs. Teams shouldn’t be without players by then. If they are, we’ll figure out a suitable plan/punishment.
