Live Match Chat Game-week 7 FPL News

Fantasy Football Live Match ChatWelcome to Live Match Chat Game-week 7 FPL News: Our game-week begins with our 3rd Friday night game of the season as Palace travel to face Everton. Everton will be keen to bounce back from their first defeat of the season last weekend at the hands of Bournemouth while Palace will hope to make it four wins on the bounce. Anyone for a Belgian captain?!

Moving onto Saturday and we have five games in store. The early kick off sees an inform Liverpool side travel down to Wales to take on a Swansea side who sit one point above the relegation zone. At 3pm Hull who have conceded nine in their last two games host a Chelsea side reeling from defeats to Liverpool & Arsenal. Bottom of the table Sunderland host West Brom. Watford host Bournemouth. While West Ham will be desperate to put a run of four straight defeats behind them as they host Middlesbrough.

As a result of midweek European football we have another four games on Sunday afternoon. We begin the day at lunchtime in Manchester as United will aim to build upon their win over Leicester with a victory over winless Stoke. The aforementioned Leicester will aim to put the loss to United behind them as they entertain Southampton. The game of the weekend sees a top of the table clash as league leaders City travel to 2nd placed Spurs. Our game-week finishes with Arsenal travelling to face Burnley. Read More

FF247 Site Team Game-week 7 FPL Tips

Welcome to the FF247 Site Team Game-week 7 FPL Tips article. Can we wildcard every week? Playing our wildcard last week certainly had the desired short-term effect, hopefully it also pays dividends over the coming game-weeks! We picked up 67pts which was 22pts above the average and this saw us jump back up from a rank of 262,127 to 91,692. The standout performers were undoubtedly Sergio Aguero, whom we had captained, and Alexis Sanchez. Elsewhere we had contributions from Petr Cech, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford. Having brought Etienne Capoue in on our wildcard and more significantly as our 4th midfielder he blanked for just the 2nd time this season. We were not impressed. Yet again we were trolled by Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian had picked up 29pts over the previous two game-weeks but just like Capoue he picked up a whopping 2pts. Our defence let us down but between them they have some decent fixtures over the coming weeks so we should see some returns. Hopefully! On the whole we are happy with how things panned out and we move on with great expectations. Read More

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 7

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 7

Fantasy Premier League Tips Game-week 6Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 7.So, here we are then, at the end of another gameweek that saw many people wildcarding – myself included! I hope you’re not sat there with your head in your hands, wondering why you picked that differential who flopped and are, instead, gleefully looking at the points that players including Aguero, Sanchez and Son have accrued. Unfortunately, I didn’t have Son in my team – I just wanted to include an anagram of ass in this opening paragraph to grab your attention.

This gameweek is, I’m afraid, followed by an international break. Yes, another one of those weekends where it feels like part of you is missing as you pretend to be interested in the few football matches that are looming. Don’t worry though, just imagine how Big Sam feels! I know that Sky’s own Super 6 is harder than normal as I frantically look at the League One table at 14:57 and try to work out who will win which match. Of course, the one bit of excitement is how England will play following the exposing of Sam Allardyce – not physically, thankfully (sorry if I got that image in your head, somehow), but through his dealings. If the Sky Sports News reports of eight other managers being approached and secretly videoed by a newspaper are true, we could see a whole load of chaos in the football world ahead of us!

Anyway, I was always told when I was younger that, if you fail to prepare, you should prepare to fail. With that in mind, sit back, relax and see what you think to my tips for players based on not only this but the following gameweeks too. Read More

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 7

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 7

We are delighted to announce that this week there will not be an official Around the Grounds article. Delighted you say? Well yes, we say. Let us explain. Your usual roving reporter, the esteemed Cookie, has been a bit busy this week, to say the least. Now whilst most middle aged men are starting to wonder what to do with the spare bedroom once the eldest finally buggers off to University our Cookie lives life a little differently. To say the least. He’s been turning the spare bedroom into a nursery… Ah, surely for his grandchildren then you say? Nope…

We are officially delighted to announce the arrival of Cookie’s latest additions to his growing brood. Yes, that’s plural! Many congratulations from all at FF247 to Mr and Mrs Cook on the arrival of their twin girls Imogen and Olivia.

Ahem, back to FPL anyway. Given the above and the lack of anybody else willing / able to spend half of their week trawling through the press conferences there will not be an official article this week but we will instead endeavour to post all of the latest news in the comments below so that you will at least be kept up to date on all the main news as it happens as we approach tomorrows deadline. And that is the first piece of really important news as it happens –

The GW7 deadline is on Friday at 7pm UK time

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Game-week 7

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Game-week 3Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Game-week 7. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Captain Picks article for Gameweek 7! This GW has several favourable matchups as most of the ‘top’ sides face weaker opposition – the one exception is at White Hart Lane where Spurs and Manchester City, the only two undefeated teams, face each other on Sunday afternoon. Some of the premium options, such as Ibrahimovic and Hazard, have been sold by plenty after failing to deliver in their last few matches, but with favourable matchups this weekend plenty a manager could end up regretting that decision. This is the last GW before another international break, so if you don’t want to spend the break annoyed at capping a player that failed I suggest you listen to my wisdom and follow the advice in this article. With that in mind, let’s get right to it and see which players we’ve got this week!

MLS GW31 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW31 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

mls fantasy tipsI’m trying to find a polite way to describe how the last round of MLS action felt. It’s my nature to be…slightly off-color, and I’m trying to fix that. And here I am thinking, should I say that the last round was a real ‘punch in the gut’? Was it maybe a ‘bell ringer’ of a hit? And then I thought no, it was a kick to the junk. That’s all I got. That’s as polite as I can describe it.

The game is infuriatingly erratic. Even your best research coupled with your best guesses can’t help you to see something like Seattle winning 4-2 in LA (and Lodeiro getting zero goals). Or how about NYRB only getting a single goal against Montreal…via a goal by Royer? Does somebody want to tell me who Royer is? I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know he was a person until I saw the box score – and I have watched more MLS than most. Apparently I’m not alone since he’s still selected by 0.0% of all fantasy players. So like I said, it was a real kick to the junk type of weekend. Pardon my French.

But keep faith, the MLS has given us a DGW to get the scores back up to a decent level again. If you can pick the players that don’t get rotated, you’ll be on your way to a winning round. And as a reminder, this round kicks off on Wednesday, so don’t forget to make your transfers. Read More

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 7

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 7 2016-17

Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 7. It’s really tough to write an article following a week when things just didn’t quite go to script. I mean, who are we kidding here? Did we think that Man City would win away to Swansea? Yeah, of course. But did you think that Everton would get blanked against Bournemouth? Did anybody think that Liverpool would somehow manage to score 5 goals with seemingly 8 different goalscorers (not one of them named Firmino)? And how about West Ham? Surely with all of that talent they could’ve put forth at least a single goal? Nah, sorry.

And after all of that disappointment, we just start again. It’s kind of what makes fantasy football the best hobby in the world, isn’t it? We just start again, maybe with a bit more wisdom and some skepticism about these teams and players we’re going to bring onto our rosters. Maybe you got burned last week. It happens. Time to pick a better player in a better fixture and get it all back.

You’ll notice that our fixture tracker looks a bit fuller this week with advanced preparation for the international breaks on the horizon. I’m not sure how you all rate international breaks in your preparation, but it has to figure into your plans somewhat based on certain teams having more of a national team contingent than others. Well, maybe the really advanced players are worried about international breaks. I’m just trying to put out a better article this week that doesn’t try to convince our readers to buy West Ham players (sorry about that, by the way). So here’s what I got this week: Read More

The FF247 Community Team – We go again

Fantasy Football The FF247 Community Team – We go again

It was around this time twelve months ago that another team joined the 3 million-strong throng of Fantasy Football Teams vying for the crown of overall world champion. Except in this case it would be “champions” as this team was a little different. You were in it. And you. You, too. I was as well. The FF247 Community Team (founded 2015) was born, and indeed borne out of a curiosity of a few regulars who wondered if we could have a fantasy team representing all you good good people. Let’s embrace what we did last year, with an overall respectable final rank of 100,193 and see if we can improve on that the second time around.

For those new to this concept, your management team of myself, elleffcee and NZ Alex will guide you via comments on our dedicated article which sits on the tab at the top of the FF247 homepage. These comments will advise you when we are looking for your interaction, namely to let us know how you think we should manage the Community Team. Once our original squad has been selected (more of that soon), we need you to advise us how many transfers we should make, who should be transferred out, in and how we should line up for the forthcoming gameweek and also who will wear our captain’s armband for double points.

All our voting is based on a first past the post system – most votes wins. Simple. Read More
