Mike, John AND Ryan unite in a fantastic episode of everyone's favourite fantasy podcast. With midweek fixtures aplenty, the lads get injury updates from Ben, talk week 28 tactics and spend a decent amount of time discussing the days of the week.
With the Transfer Window gently closed, Mike and John break down the deadline day moves and rate the January crop of players like cows at a cattle market. Swearily. You know who signed, I'm not writing the names for you.
Well, that was an interesting midweek! Only 2 of the top 6 managed 3 points, with City slipping up badly and Chelsea getting walloped! Recorded pre-transfer window close*, Mike and Ryan break down the midweek matches and look ahead to GW25. *Transfer Window Bonus pod coming to follow.
With Higuain in at Chelsea, the biggest move of the Jan transfer window has happened and the lads break down his expected value for the rest of the season and what you should give up to get him. With Spurs, Fulham and the midweek slate all covered, it's a surprisingly fantasy focused show.
The official Bang Average cat joins the show along with MikeP and John, frankly he makes more sense than them. Injury Guru and all-round good egg Ben Dinnery gives his expert take on the latest injury to Sir Harold of Kane and the lads break down he fantasy impact and much more.
Yes we're aware the half way point was several weeks ago. We know. We can count. And there isn't really a preview of GW22 in here. Yes we know that isn't unusual either. There is plenty of talk about whether the success stories from the first half of the term will maintain their form though, so there is something useful for a change.
In a rare solo show, MikeP does something even rarer... previews every single game. Ryan chimes in for a few minutes and says hi, but it's mostly Mike talking Digne, Ozil, Wolves and every upcoming game.
Mike & J give International Week the attention it deserves, then indulge in an unusual amount of nonsense, even for a Bang Average podcast. When they do talk fantasy, it last for ages, hence the bumper length show!
In a truly Bang Average week, some real shit happened - not just the league cup either! Despite all that, MikeP & J found time to preview the week 11 games and talk about the giant dumpster fire that is the midfield position this season.
