FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24. Hmmm… A 4th consecutive red arrow. Our worst run of the season. Crap. This is all despite picking up 66pts which was actually 8pts better than the average. It’s tough at the top. Although we’re not anywhere near the top! We’ve dropped outside the top 250k. Last week’s transfers didn’t quite go to plan. Jesse picked up a rather pathetic 2pts while despite the Liverpool v City game being a 7 goal thriller, Aguero registered just 5pts. However, Kun does face Newcastle this week so he will have the opportunity to make up for it. Elsewhere, our defence racked up a pitiful 5pts. Our star performer was Arnautovic with 16pts. Salah did what Salah does. And Harry delivered as our captain....Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 23 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 23. Christmas, Santa Claus, Happiness, Elves, Reindeers with red noses, Joy, Kids with presents, New Year rejoicing, time with families. Yeah, whatever… Means nothing when you check back in and have 3 red arrows out of 4. If we could say we got too drunk and missed a deadline or capped the wrong player then that’d be better, but we didn’t. We were diligent, we had the discussions. We just got it wrong. And sometimes you can just try too hard! We’ve dropped from 146k to 219k since the last time we spoke to you. On the positive side we were delighted by how many people, both on the site and twitter, actually complained about the lack of an article each week! We did as...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20. In a week where some scored over 100 or at least very close to it, we scored 81. Still way above the average of 60 so we should be pleased and it has seen us rise us to a season’s best rank of 107,751. Highlights were a Kane hat-trick, the usual goal and assist for Salah, clean sheets for Christensen, Otamendi and Dunk and a captain’s performance from Sterling. Sadly Begovic, Masuaku, Hazard, Richarlison and Shaqiri scored the grand total of 8pts between them so we expect some payback from them this week. Last weeks result… We have held our transfer this week We had actually planned to sell Lowton for Jones but a cheeky and ill-timed price rise for United’s fine...Read More

Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19. After picking up a red arrow in GW17 it was back to our favourite colour green in GW18. A score of 60 saw us finish 8pts above the average. Admittedly it was a small green arrow but at this difficult time of the season we’ll take whatever we can get. Our game-week got off to a poor start as Danny Simpson & Leicester yet again failed to keep a clean sheet. Saturday afternoon saw our captain Eden Hazard fail to sparkle and we were forced to make do with just an assist. Andreas Christensen pitched in with 8pts but Shaqiri & Richarlison did nowt. Raheem Sterling left it late but we were happy to wait as he rewarded us with two goals as City spanked Harry Kane and Spurs. Sunday af...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18. The good thing about this time of the season is that the game-weeks come thick and fast and there isn’t much time to ponder on a rubbish week. We scored 45pts in GW17, below average, dropped in rank to almost 150k. Not what we were hoping for, but let’s be honest we’ve been here before and undoubtedly, we’ll venture there again soon enough. The highlights were obviously few and far between – clean sheets for new recruit Otamendi and a sneaky one for Christensen saw that Lady Luck did actually smile on us briefly. An assist for Richarlison was followed by an injury to the midfielder and it was left to Raheeeeem to (relatively speaking) save us with a couple...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17. A fourth green arrow on the spin, what is the world coming to? Maybe we are doing something right after all! 56 points in GW16 was a decent, if unspectacular, performance – the average was 43, so we’re happy and sees us rise to a ranking of 125,647. Like many, our week was dominated and made by Kane the captain who contributed 24 points. Obviously Salah helped, but then everyone has him, while Begovic’s penalty save at Palace helped him return 8pts. With 43 points out of 56 coming from three players, the less said about the rest the better, but many of you had similar outcomes and can relate. We move onto midweek GW17 with 2 free transfers and 2.1mln in the bank. The ...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16. 61pts. A green arrow. Our highest overall rank (151,974) of the season since GW1. On the whole we’re pretty happy and there’s nothing we can really moan about but given who’s writing this week’s intro we’ll find something to moan about! While 61pts was quite a decent score it’s worth noting that our captain, Eden Hazard, scored 30 of those points all on his own. Although, after last week’s debacle he had some making up to do! The only other players to contribute any meaningful points were Simpson, Salah & Morata. The rest are in the dog house. Before we move on we should highlight our bench. Let’s just say it’s a bloody good thing that none of them were required this week as ...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15. We of course played our wildcard and while the results weren’t instantly remarkably ‘WOW’, we did ok, given the rotation nightmares that many seemed to suffer. We scored 55 vs an average of 47, giving us a weekly rank of 1.3mln and saw us rise in the overall ranking to 246,768 from 298k. A step in the right direction for sure and as long as it continues, we remain a happy bunch. If you remember, one of the reasons we finally played the wildcard was to sort our defence and our new crew certainly did us proud with Christensen, Mustafi and Dunk all recording clean sheets. However, the true tale of our game-week came late on in the action as Sterling and Salah came up trumps, Salah from th...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14. BEFORE YOU READ ANYTHING ELSE… THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS TONIGHT! 18:45 GMT Raz you have been warned! Talk about chasing last week’s points! We brought in Wilson and Pogba after they seemingly ‘hit form’ with a joint total of 29 points last time. This time… 5! In total. That’ll teach us. Or them. We are on a wildcard this week, but will they make the cut? Stay tuned to find out. In total we got 57 points which was actually ok, the average was 43 and it saw us ahem ‘rocket’ up the rankings (not that hard from such a lowly base!) from 420k to 279,771. Still a long way to go but at least it’s a jump in the right direction after three cons...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13. Oooooh Marcos Alonso. Oooooh Marcos Alonso. We knew he’d come good in the end. Patience is a virtue. Try, try, try again. Our Spanish superstar did us proud, rewarded our loyalty and faith with a goal, clean sheet and 2bps as Chelsea swept aside West Brom with ease to send Pulis back to the job centre. Alas, Alonso was our highest scorer of the week but was closely followed by Pascal Gross whose goal on Monday night was supplemented by 3bps. A nice finish to a week, which was average. Well, very slightly above average – we scored 61pts vs an average of 56, yet it was not quite enough for a green arrow. Our third red arrow in succession takes us down to 420,608. Goals from Richarlison a...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12. Hmmmm, our slide into mediocrity accelerated in GW11 as we scored 43pts (vs an average of 44) which was a GW rank of 2,847,986, giving us a new global rank of 406,870. Bizarrely this was the second clean sheet in a row for Alonso and Chelsea – clearly his success does not reflect to us – when we score well he doesn’t, when he does we don’t. We are clearly not meant to be together. Our City trio of Sterling, Silva and Jesus scored 5 each which is symmetrically pleasing, while Richarlison scored again and would have contributed more if Young Tom had not missed the penalty that our Brazilian hero won. The rest were rubbish – Kane (c) was another Wembley disas...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11. It was a poor game-week for many and we were not about to let down the masses. We didn’t even break the average, scoring just 42pts vs an average of 46, which sees our ranking drop down to 348,773. Very disappointing. In a week where a load of teams saw their vice-captain come into play, sadly ours didn’t. Richarlison (c) played, sort of, did nothing, got booked and scored a point. Idiot. Our vice-captain was ironically our highest scorer – good old Firmino, we never doubted you. Gross and Sterling scored 7 each, jeez even Alonso scored 6 with a clean sheet for once and still we fell. We should have known what was to come when we left de Gea on the bench for the early...Read More
