Team Talk Fantasy Football GW16

Team Talk Fantasy Football Gameweek 14For some managers GW16 was great, for others it was a disappointment, but as we always say, don’t look back, look forwards. And there is much to be excited about as the fixtures really do start flowing thick and fast over the next few weeks for, if you weren’t aware….IT’S CHRISTMAS!! So welcome to the TeamTalk Christmas special, where we will aim to give you all the information you need to make GW17 pay rich dividends and see you climb the leagues quicker than Santa can fall down the chimney.
Our festivities start at the Etihad, where half a stadium will watch the lunchtime feast of Man City vs Crystal Palace. Then we have six 3pm matches as Aston Villa take on Man Utd, Swansea travel across to Hull, QPR welcome West Brom, Southampton host Everton, Burnley visit Spurs and West Ham do battle with Leicester. There is no evening game so onto Sunday when at lunchtime there won’t be much Christmas spirit shown as Newcastle play Sunderland before we sit back with our mince pies and mulled wine to enjoy Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool. Our gameweek concludes on Monday evening as Chelsea take the trip to Stoke.
There is much to get through, a whole selection box of injuries and suspensions, so let’s go Around the Grounds and see what the managers have had to say. Read More

Fantasy Football 247 FPL Team December 18, 2014 posted by

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 17

Fantasy football tipsIf we only had LVG at the helm of our fantasy team, where would we be? It was just one of those weeks, it was just one of those weeks. In hindsight we made one mistake with our 3 transfers, but to be perfectly honest no one could have predicted that Dzeko was going to be asked to move his calf, it was understood that he didn’t need warm-ups to stand still in front of goal. Despite the mistake by Pelligrini, not us, sometimes FPL is about preventing big damage. A game-week can quickly turn into what the experts call ‘damage limitation’ and we call it a “Well…it could have been worse” week. So we did not get where we wanted in the overall, but because of our astute purchase of Eden Hazard and our then election of him as captain our week was saved.
The purchase of Hazard brought us in an Agueroesque 28 points after his score was doubled. Downing and Sanchez once again continued their scintillating form by scoring us a cool 9 points each. In the three weeks that we have had them they have delivered 22 (Downing) and 23 (Sanchez) points. Obviously the talent scout in charge of our midfield positions knows what he is doing. Now if he could have just got our supposedly great value Siggy going. Is this not becoming a bit old? He is great value has been the argument for a while, yet his 3.69 points per game over the last 13 are starting to cause division within the camp. Boyd scored his customary two points and to be honest that is his role, so you can say he delivered, sort of. So with the purchase of Dzeko and the suspension of Austin you can imagine how our forward line looked. Only Diego Costa was left to man the FF247 front line and he delivered two fold. A goal and a yellow, which has now occurred 5 times this year oddly enough. No wonder he never gets any bonus. Read More

Fantasy Football Pottys Predictions Gameweek 17

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueHello my merry Potty Punters and I hope you will be over the coming festivities? For many, Xmas is a time for families, friend’s, presents and enjoyment so they say but I say what’s all that nonsense about? Us poor souls have the added stress of FPL and possible injuries, suspension’s, who to captain and match postponement’s to add to the merry equation, so its a frigging hellish time.

Last weekend’s competition was a very close affair indeed and it was decided when the Toffee’s entertained the Hoops on Monday night, but with Everton unable to keep a clean-sheet this determined that last weeks Potty winner was B-BASH on 76 points.
Well done mate so e-mail me at prctrdvd@gmail.com.

Kops Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 17

kops-tips-001The recent midweek game-week gave us all a taste of what to expect over the Christmas period as we squeeze four of them into just 13 days. Forget Santa, forget presents, forget family & friends, forget alcohol, Christmas is all about FPL! Actually ignore what I said about forgetting alcohol, you’re going to need it as you attempt to come to terms with Jose et al rotating players for no other reason than because they might get tired! The rotation started early for some teams last weekend as City chose to rest Zabaleta while Azpilicueta once again sat things out for Chelsea and don’t get me started on a certain Bosnian picking up an injury in the warm-up. We’ve said it before and no doubt we’ll say it again but these examples just highlight the fact that FPL is a squad game and over the festive period you will, whether you like it or not, need to call on your bench when your star players are rested. There are now just four game-weeks to negotiate before the January wildcard is available and with that in mind we have below outlined a number of players whom we feel can deliver across those four games.

Captains Picks Fantasy Football Gameweek 17 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Captain picks Your choice for the armband this week is likely to cause you more headaches than in previous weeks. But with headaches there is also the chance to score big. There is no Aguero to select of course, Diego Costa has not exactly been producing the goods of late, Eden Hazard isn’t given the luxury of a home fixture, but a tricky night in Stoke and Man City have no strikers. So while you may still to decide to go with Hazard or Costa we have explored the different options this week that we believe offer you a chance to beat your mini league rivals, many of whom will go with the tried and trusted names. So it’s time to show some flair and give the responsibility to another member of your squad who has decent form and an attractive fixture to boot. Let’s have a look at the best options… Read More

Fantasy football Fixtures tipsMuch of the talk this past week has been about how to fill that Aguero shaped hole in your team. It may be a small hole in terms of stature but it’s a massive one in terms of fantasy points. The gulf between him and the rest of the forwards in terms of points is huge. He departed on 105 and his nearest challenger is a full 25 points behind. The search for his replacement began last week of course but many will still be juggling with the decision as to where to settle given this weeks events. Those that saw the value in a straight switch to Dzeko were cruelly disappointed as the Bosnian didn’t quite make it and his replacement was announced minutes prior to kick-off due to an injury in the warm up which may see him miss a few weeks. We shall proceed as normal with our fixture guide but perhaps for once we will have an eye on some specifics and notably any potential replacements for the stricken Sergio.

Team Talk Fantasy Football GW16

Team Talk Fantasy Football Gameweek 14Well, how much fun was GW15? Ah come on, don’t tell me you didn’t secretly enjoy it? Red card after red card, yellow cards leading to suspensions, injuries mounting, the unbeatable getting beaten, a clean sheet for Simon Mignolet – it truly had it all. And that, my friends, is why we love it. After a week of contemplating how to spend your “Kun dollars” and for some, wondering how the hell they’ll field a full team, the time has come. It’s decision time. We’ve arrived. It’s GW16.
And just to string out the tension, it’s another 3-day weekend, but no early game, giving you time to get the Christmas tree and then sit back for six 3pm matches as Burnley bore Southampton, Chelsea demolish Hull, Stoke strangle Crystal Palace, Leicester roll over for Man City, Sunderland defend vs West Ham and there’s a West Midlands derby as Aston Villa take the short trip to West Brom. And that, my friends, is just the hors d’oeuvre.
Saturday evening we’re down at the Emirates as Arsenal attempt to bounce as they entertain Newcastle. And then onto Sunday lunchtime, to what is arguably still the biggest fixture in English football as Man Utd “welcome” old rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford. Following that there are reunions for Ben Davies and Gylfi Sigurdsson as Spurs travel to Swansea.
Our gameweek is completed with some good old Monday Night Football – and we’re treated to a night under the lights at Goodison as Everton take on ‘Arry’s Rangers. Much to look forward to and some points to be made up for many of us!
After a busy week of Champions League and Europa League action, coupled with all the injury updates, there is much to catch up on. Let’s go Around the Grounds to see what the managers have had to say. Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 16

Breaking News: Due to a muscle injury to Thibaut Courtois we have transferred in the safe hands of Joe Hart for a 4 point hit on Friday after the article was announced.Further details were promised and here they are…

We were faced with the prospect of no keeper and playing with 10 men. Hardly a disaster and we could have left it be but we are nothing if not thorough so we delved into the detail and decided an extra hit was justified even if it was for minimal gain. The theory was that our keeper situation meant that we would score zero points as it was. If we took a hit we would lose 4 but also gain 2 from the replacement playing a standard 90 minute, uneventful game. The plus side was that if we picked the right one (clean sheet, saves etc) we could gain on the deal. A standard 90 minutes plus clean sheet would see us up by 2 points. Not a lot we know but as we said we are forensic about our fantasy football and hence we decided Hart was the best bet to deliver us this. Add in that we don’t really know the extent of the Courtois injury just yet and how long he will actually be out for, we are happy to have Hart for the upcoming fixtures as they are very kind to City.

transfer-updateA few days ago we opened our team article with this statement. “It’s a happy and chipper FF247 camp that brings you this week’s Team review and plans for the future as we had a great GW14.” Yeah ok, that seems like a distant memory now. Like many of you, our team was struck with a litany of bad luck via injuries or dumbassedness from our now suspended players. However not all is doom and gloom, as our two newest squad members (bought in GW13) once again got us some valuable points. Downing and Sanchez have certainly been welcome additions to our team, if for no other reason than the fact that they are healthy and not suspended. The rest of our midfield was disappointing, with Siggy scoring his usual 2 pointer when he plays away from the Liberty Stadium and Cesc picking up his fifth yellow. However any strong frowns have to be reserved for our line of forwards. What a number they did on us and the FPL community in general. Charlie Austin while delivering 6 points only managed to snatch that from what seemed a certain 12. The red card he saw was only compounded by the disappointing display put in by the Brazilian-looking Spanish forward Costa. The nightmare though was not over as our triad up top wanted to close the show with an epic bang. Enter our captain and the EPL’s best player. Exit 6 minutes later our captain and the EPL’s best player. Enough said…well at least until the transfers portion of this article.
Everton, Leighton Baines…what went wrong? Yeah, we used that phrase last week, but why the heck change it when it works so well? That is 4 points from our star defender in the last 4 game-weeks. You over-cooking my grits Leighton, you over-cooking my grits. Courtois had a day off, but he can be forgiven as we are still confident that Thibaut will repay us with many a clean sheet over the coming weeks. Our Swan defender Bartley brought in one point, probably because he didn’t want to show up half our team by scoring two, what a great teammate! We saved our game-week hero for last. Usually bench fodder Alan Hutton came in and saved the day, to the point where it was his points that pushed us over that magical border into the top 1K.

We climbed 419 places and now sit in a global position of 976 – Our careful planning last week has left us in a better position than most teams with two free transfers. Hopefully we will make the correct decisions this GW and continue to see green arrows like we have 9 out of the last 11 weeks.

Pottys Predictions FPL Champions LeagueHi all my Potty Punters and how’s trick’s? Let me guess, a bloody right mess as that’s what Gwk15 gifted us all, major injuries, suspension’s and red and yellow flags.So where do you go from here? The bloody pub I say but on route drop into Pottys Bookies and blow your kid’s Xmas present funds as things could not get any worse!

Last week I threw at you “All over before X-Factor starts” and for many of you it was, but 2 punters had a ding dong of a Competition scrap and MITO’S LAD nearly pulled it off but a jock in a frock stole the show from him with a total of 28pts and that was – THE GALLANT PIONEER who’s a potty winner.

kops-tips-001It’s ok, you can come out from behind your sofa or wherever you chose to hide as GW15 came crashing down around you! Did you cry? It’s ok if you did, rumour has it Chuck Norris even shed a tear. Not only was GW15 an unmitigated disaster for most it has also meant that GW16 is not going to be a walk in the park as the majority of managers will have to deal with both injuries and suspensions to key players. Whether you decide to sell a particular player or bench them for a week while they serve a suspension is entirely up to you. It’s worth taking into account that many managers will be forced into taking a points hit this week, so if you can avoid doing likewise you are giving yourself a good head start this week. As ever we have been busy this week chewing the fat and below we have outlined a number of players we believe can deliver in the five game-weeks prior to the January wildcard. Read More

Captains Picks Fantasy Football Gameweek 16 – Fantasy Premier League 2014/15

Captain picksWhat can you do in two minutes? Well, keeping it clean . . . you could listen to Song 2 by Blur and rock out some fantasy league angst, you could read Bryan Munich’s inspirational quotes and think, ‘I’d love to remember that and quote it to appear intellectual (but I never will)’. You could cook two-thirds the way, a soft-boiled egg or watch Tim Vine tell you 56,676 jokes. Alternatively you could watch the entire performance of your fantasy football captain for the week.
Sergio Aguero, everyone. I don’t have the figures to hand but apparently an astounding 134% had the armband on him last week against Everton and the resultant intake of breath at approximately 5.32pm on Saturday as the Argentine (there I said it) crumpled to the turf and then cried, would have been enough to vacuum-seal the hole in the ozone layer.

Fantasy football fixtures tipsWell that was a strange one wasn’t it. With many of the main protagonists scoring very low (yes, we are looking at you Diego and Sergio) the scoring was somewhat dented but it was similarly low for the majority, so no worries there really. What is more of a worry is that many of the main protagonists also managed to get themselves either injured or suspended in the process! It could be ‘hit’ central this week as the likes of Fabregas, Aguero, Chambers and Austin are all out for this week at least and sadly in the case of Sergio, maybe much longer. Many managers will have more flags than the United Nations at the end of this week. We expect most of the week will be filled with fantasy managers deciding how best to handle the said crisis, if indeed you have been caught in the cross-fire, as many will have. There are of course six teams in European action this midweek and much will depend on the fallout from those too but in order to help you plan ahead we give you our weekly take on the fixtures and which teams we feel have the best and worst runs ahead of them to help you decide your transfers plans… Read More
