Live Match Chat Game-week 3 FPL News

Fantasy Football Live Match ChatHere we go again!! A lunch time kickoff gets us rolling in GW3. Spurs welcomes in a Liverpool side who still hasn’t played a home game or come close to putting in a respectable defensive effort. The 3pm games see Conte looking to sneak CFC by Burnley for another 3 points, Palace looks to start earning points as LFC legend Benteke looks to get his tally rolling vs The Cherries. Everton plays host to Stoke, Leicester with the beaten and disappointed Vardy owners or what’s left of them, look to finally get their season going against the Swans. In other action, we also see Watford look to add more fuel to all the #WengerOut fire. In the last game of the day, Hull bows to the one and only king Zlatan, with the hope he shows them mercy.
Sunday finishes up the game-week with 2 games. Pulis will have West Brom defend, defend and defend vs Boro and Pep will have City attack, attack and attack versus Bilic and his Hammers. Read More

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Game-week 3Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Game-week 3. No Friday night matches this week I’m afraid – no Monday match either, just the standard two-day working week – now you know how the average Frenchman feels. Our game-week begins Saturday lunchtime at the Lane, with Kane vs Mane and ends at the Etihad as Gold’s Hammers take on Silva’s City. In between there is plenty to get our teeth into with Christian Benteke beginning life at Palace and Yannick Bolasie and Ashley Williams hoping to start for Everton. Zlatan will look to continue to please his owners as United face fellow table toppers Hull. Don’t forget there is an international break between GW3 & 4. Now the managers have started the season a tad naughtily, not disclosing injuries in their pressers (Andy Carroll, Dimitri Payet, Victor Valdes etc) much to the chagrin of many an FPL manager. Let’s go Around the Grounds to see if they can be more helpful this week. Read More

FF247 Site Team Game-week 3 FPL Tips

Game-week 3 FPL TipsWelcome to the FF247 Site Team Game-week 3 FPL Tips article. A quick revisit to GW2 and we had a decent week scoring 71 points, which was predominantly due to our forwards’ performances – Andre Gray, Zlatan and Captain Kun all did the business with Antonio Valencia’s clean sheet our only other real contribution – sadly we left Gareth McAuley on the bench! Bizarrely, despite beating the average score of 57, we still saw red arrows, but we are well used to them by now, so all is good. Our rank is 46,697 which we are pleased with and we have two free transfers to waste.

Transfer decision: we have sold Roberto Firmino and bought Ross Barkley and held a transfer.

So Firmino has gone for his Merseyside counterpart, who has begun the season with a goal and an assist, seems to be enjoying life under Ronald Koeman and Everton’s fixtures now look promising on paper which we have probably just jinxed for them. Firmino can consider himself slightly unlucky to be given just two matches but with Andre Gray facing a potential ban we felt it wise to raise a bit of cash in case we need to replace Gray soon.

MLS GW26 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

mls fantasy tips“…even if you do make the right moves, you could still be wrong.” — Guy Sanchez, GW25 MLS Tips article

I called it folks. You knew it was coming, and I knew it was coming, and we still act surprised when this game completely punches you right in the face while throwing your plans out the window. In case you missed it, several of our big players in the league got rotated out during the midweek matches. Absent from starting lineups were Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris, Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and Giovani dos Santos. Some subbed in late, but for the most part, several pieces of our teams that we were banking on to guide us through this landmine-infested stretch of bye weeks failed us. Not a lot you can do about it except dust yourself off and move on.

And alongside the obvious rotation issues we knew we’d face, there were some surprising results that skewed a few scores. Philadelphia showed they are a competent team and beat Columbus on the road, Montreal have completely fallen apart and couldn’t do more than a 1-1 draw with DC, Toronto won 2-1 without a goal from Giovinco…and Chicago proved that they can at least capitalize on playing a reduced squad and played LA to a 2-2 draw. This is the MLS folks, anything can happen – but we’ll still try to make a bit of sense of it here. Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Game-week 3Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Game-week 3.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to another season of Fantasy Premier League! While I’m sure most of you remember the pain and agony from last season’s FPL start, when conventional FPL wisdom was thrown out the window and mere mortals – aka FPL noobs – made impulsive transfers and rash decisions and soared above experienced FPL players early on and throughout most of the season. It seems that the FPL Gods have been kinder to us this time around as the start of the season has been considerably nicer to us, with several of the premium players – Ibrahimovic, Aguero, Hazard – as well as some of the budget picks – Gray, Negredo, Redmond, Lamela – delivering FPL points from the get-go. Consequently, many of you are in considerably better positions now than at the same time last season. Looking at the fixture list for this round, we see that the big teams have favourable matchups, the exceptions being Tottenham and Liverpool who face each other. In other words, there are plenty of good choices for the armband this week, so let’s take a look at who they are, shall we?

Fantasy Premier League Tips Game-week 3Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Game-week 3.
So, here we are then. You’re going to have to bear with me as this is my first article for the FF247 website. Being so early in the season and with a drop in overall rank already to my name, I’ll apologise in advance if your team follows mine into joining the red arrows – and I’m not talking about the air display team.
Well, it’s game-week three already – the Rio Olympics have finished and we’re celebrating the outstanding achievements of athletes from around the world. Though, of course, it’s been all about Team GB in the Swirly household. Who can forget the talents of Mo, Andy, Jessica, Bradley, Laura and indeed everyone?! It’s made me clean down the bike, go out for a few miles, get saddle sore (and walk like John Wayne) and then let it collect another couple of inches of dust in the shed between now and the Tokyo Olympics.
The question that arises, therefore, will be… Is your team going to be like Usain Bolt – front of the field and a legend of your time? Or is it going to be like poor old French gymnast Samir Ait Said – so much hope, a leap of faith and then a whole load of pain? If you don’t know who that is, Google it but perhaps don’t watch the video. Like lots of things on the internet, really.

FPL Fixtures Game-week 3

fantasy football FPL fixtures tips captains hintsWelcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Game-week 3. Well there goes GW2 – we hope you ended up happy with your team accumulating some decent points (ie you owned Ibra and Kun and capo’d one of them). We move on swiftly to GW3 though, no rest for the wicked here. It is worth noting there is an international break after GW3, which will coincide with the end of the transfer window. So hopefully we’ll have plenty to keep us occupied while the internationals are being played – as Arsenal look for a defender and a striker (yeah right), Liverpool for a left-back, Chelsea look to stop Conte spending anymore Russian cash and Hull look to buy anyone. In the meantime let’s have a look at those teams with decent fixtures coming up, while also issuing a warning of those sides whose up and coming look somewhat precarious! Finally we’ll end as usual with “One week wonders” which may be especially useful for those managers planning to play their wildcard in front of GW4 and therefore have a free shot at some punts this week. Right, let’s get this show on the road.

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
