Fantasy Football Team News and Predicted Line-ups GW8

FPL Team News and Predicted Line-ups GW8 Welcome to the slightly new look Team News and Predicted Line-ups for GW8. We launched this new feature at the beginning of the season and we hope it has been of some use to you all. It replaced a golden oldie, namely Cookie’s Around The Grounds article and we have sat back and watched and learned some lessons from it. Hence the new look, the new intro and starting it afresh every week with the comments wiped clean. We probably should have done this from the start but the whole thing itself was such a big (and new) undertaking that we dropped the ball on a few minor details. Hopefully we have ironed these out now and you will all treat it as a new article, as you did with the original, and so please feel to crack on with the usual Friday after...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 7

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 7 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 7. I’ve got another confession to make, I’m your fool… Hi. My name is Adam (init). And I seem to be addicted to screwing up the Site Team! I seem to have a monumental issue with pressing CONFIRM when it comes to the site team! “Oooops” was how I introduced this weeks thorny issue… Fortunately the guys know by now what that may mean. And yes they are all guys, not folk… *Sighs It happened again. It happens a lot. I have no idea why. I seem to have a blind spot when it comes to the site team and I know not why. To quote Kop – “You’re so meticulous with everything else” To quote Cookie – “We’re like a Carry On ...Read More

Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 1

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 1. We may not be, or indeed ever have been, the best team out there, but we are almost certainly the best debated one. At least we’d hope so anyway, and if anyone is debating a team more than we do then we send you and your family our condolences! This is not thrown together at the last minute. It’s debated to the Nth degree. It’s debated to the degree of friendships being stretched to the point of breaking. If it works then great, if it doesn’t then fine, but don’t ever say we didn’t try! We’ve had some moderate ‘success’ thus far, finishing 5k, 84k and 12k in the last three seasons. As we say, not the best, not the worst. Our panel is made up of five FPL ‘veterans’, all of wh...Read More

New FPL Transfers Chelsea Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko

New FPL Transfers Chelsea Alvaro Morata Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Chelsea Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Chelsea won the league with relative ease last season, a feat they achieved with a core of no more than 13/14 players. However it’s worth remembering that Chelsea had no European football to contend with, this season they will have the small matter of the Champions League to deal with while also trying to defend their title. Antonio Conte will be quite aware of this and Chelsea have already splashed something in the region of £130m on three players, Alvaro Morata, Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Remember when £130m was a lot of money? Now it wouldn’t even buy you Neymar. Chelsea fans will could expect mo...Read More

New FPL Transfers Liverpool Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson

New FPL Transfers Liverpool Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Liverpool Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson. Liverpool started last season in electric form and in some circles they were being spoken about as potential league champions. A lack of depth within their squad and possibly a lack of a plan B eventually saw them fall away and ultimately they did well to finish 4th. Last season they had no European football to contend with meaning they were free to concentrate on the league. This season they will have European football to deal with although it remains to be seen what night of the week they will play. One thing is for sure and that is that Liverpool need to add both depth and quality to their squad. They continue to be linked with Virgil van Dy...Read More

New FPL Transfers Jay Rodriguez, Jon Walters and Harry Maguire

New FPL Transfers Jay Rodriguez, Jon Walters and Harry Maguire Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Jay Rodriguez, Jon Walters and Harry Maguire. To date all our articles regarding new signings have been specific to individual teams. Unfortunately not all teams are going to make enough sexy signings to warrant an article of their own and thus we are forced to lump a number of teams in together. Forced is probably the wrong word but you get our drift. Today we bring you signings from West Brom, Burnley & Leciester, I can almost sense your excitement from here. Cookie won’t thank me for telling you this but he has high hopes for J Rod, I’m not quite as enthusiastic over Jon Walters and Harry Maguire. Let’s see what you guys think.. Jay Rodriguez Club: West Brom Position: Forward FPL P...Read More

New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette

New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Arsenal Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette. Welcome back to a brand-new season of Fantasy Premier League! The Transfer Window has been in full swing since the 1st of July with plenty new faces coming into the league giving us fantasy managers more options to pull our hair out over. In the coming weeks, we will see multiple drafts, probably all from Mitro, containing different combinations of some of these new faces so to make it easier for him and everyone else; below I have written up an analysis of some of those faces. With so much money flooding into the English League in the recent years we are seeing some ridiculous transfers and transfer fees up and down the divisions (Ruben Ne...Read More

Value for money and points for free…

Value for money and points for free… “Play air guitar with MTV That ain’t workin’, that’s the way to do it, Points for nothing & chics for free. I want my, I want my, I want my FPL.” No, I can’t do anything about partners for free, we ‘re talking someone who can’t score in a house of ill repute the night after winning the lottery here. But through many Sunday mornings of a sore head from trying to work out how 3 pints and a poppadom with the lads cost me £70 I am now well equipped to advise on spending a bare minimum, even if it does severely limit your social life; but hey this is FPL not Love Island. The way fpl bumps up the price of every player who remembered to tie his laces before going on the pitch means our wonderful polishe...Read More

New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe

New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Bournemouth Nathan Ake and Jermain Defoe. Cookie gets United’s latest additions, of course Init takes Everton and Matt has cherry picked Arsenal & City. And what about Kop I hear you ask? Well due to Liverpool’s insistence on writing apology letters rather than acquiring new players I’ve chosen Bournemouth! Why? I’m wondering that myself and should I come up with a worthwhile answer I’ll be sure to let you know. Enough about me, what about Bournemouth. This will be their 3rd straight season in the top flight finishing 16th in 2015/16 and 9th last season. They’ll certainly hope to continue on such a trajectory. To date they’ve added three players to...Read More

New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker

New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Manchester City Bernardo Silva and Ederson. Continuing with our series of player previews and we arrive at Manchester City. I’m sure we can all agree that City were something of a disappointment last season eventually finishing 3rd. Now finishing 3rd might be considered an achievement for many clubs but not a club who had installed Pep Guardiola as manager and had invested in the likes of Nolito, Gundogan, Jesus, Sane and John ‘I can’t defend’ Stones. 3rd place will not be accepted this season and with this in mind Pep has once again been busy splashing the cash. It’s no surprise to see a new keeper arrive but I’m not sure they needed another midfielder! Let’s take a closer look...Read More

New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane

New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Everton Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane. Having covered Everton’s attacking transfers in the previous article we now make our way back to the defence and look at new keeper Jordan Pickford and central defender Michael Keane. Both are young (Pickfrd is 23, Keane 24) and Koeman will hope that both will serve the club for seasons to come – well, at least until the manager has hopped off to Barcelona anyway. It’s the trendy thing to say, but I make no apologies for repeating myself – ignore Everton until GW6 (unless you fancy a GW1 punt home to Burnley) – GW2-GW6 fixtures read Man City (a), Chelsea (a), Spurs (h), Man Utd (a). It’s ugly folks, but it changes ...Read More

New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen

New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen Hello and welcome to New FPL Transfers Everton Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen. This has been an unusual window for Everton – usually they are frustrated spectators as their rivals spend away and buy a whole range of talent before the Toffees fudge around on deadline day, sneak in a deal or two – or if they’re really lucky, cash in on Marouane Fellaini at the 11th hour. This season they have dealt big and they have dealt early – out have gone Lukaku, Deulofeu and Kone and in so far have come Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen. This article will concentrate on the latter three, the attacking side of things. If you haven’t realised ...Read More
