It’s the second half of the season. Your January transfer window wildcard is operational after this weekend’s fixtures. Use it wisely. The January Manager of the Month race starts here. There are 4 gameweeks to tackle to win the prize.

It’s the first round of the FA Cup at the weekend, so after these New Year fixtures we’ve got a week and half off to catch our breath after the non-stop Christmas fixture pile up. There have been some ludicrous results and some surprising fantasy scorers. The Premier managers haven’t made it easy for us with some of their team selections, and that may continue into this gameweek. Bale is suspended. Fellaini is back. Michu might be. And Theo Walcott is a centre forward all of a sudden. Chelsea could score another 8. Arsenal could score another 7. They got 6 first time round. Dzeko fired a hat trick replacing the misfiring Tevez which may keep him in the line up for another week. Suarez might have a partner up front in Danny Sturridge by kick off if the reputed deal goes through quickly, and Demba Ba looks unlikely to be wearing black and white for much longer. If a deal is in the offing, he may not be making any more appearances, scoring his weekly goal, until he signs for his new club.

I wished you all Happy New Year too early. I’ll do it again. Happy New Year.

You what?
