Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 31

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 31 We hoped for a late surge to waht has been a disappointing season up to a couple of weeks ago and it looks like we’re on the right tracks. We smaches the average again this week as we scored 78pts vs an average of just 35pts – our score gave us a weekly ranking of 16,450 and lifted us 250k places in the overall ranking from 714,651 to a season’s best 463,763. Wonders will never cease. Our week, like many other teams was made by the choice of Kane as captain instead of Aguero who blanked at Norwich in the opening game of the week. Sadly Kane missed a few chances to add to his tally, but maybe we are being a tad greedy here. The scoring outside of Kane was solid all throughout the team – Lloris kept a clean sheet at Villa, whil...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 30

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 30 Well, well, well we did it, a green arrow after our wonderful set of superstars defied the average to deliver an 82pt week, our second highest weekly score of the season. Our team was solid throughout apart from our keeper Lloris who didn’t cover himself in glory in the derby and brought home just a solitary point for us. But let’s not focus on him, there is more positive news from our outfielders. Our defence, well, it’s never been so productive – clean sheets from Kompany and Rangel was slightly tarnished when van Dijk and the Saints allowed Sunderland a goal – but all was not lost, oh no, for our man himself powered in an equaliser and a couple of bonus points to boot. Our midfield stars were Payet and Mahrez, while ...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 25

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 25 The team committee is starting to feel like inmates who write the days they have spent locked up on the wall. Being part of the selection process for the site team is like being behind bars with no chance of parole. A moment of happiness (probably just a wet dream), last GW has quickly turned into another predictable red arrow. We scored 58 points this past GW, which gave us a ranking of over 2 million for the week and dropped us in the overall to 930K. All is not lost though, we still harbour a bit of pride (not sure why) so we can still be embarrassed over the coming weeks. GW24 in summary – Tuesday was great, we scored 57 points and moved up the rankings nicely. Then Wednesday came and we plummeted. We only had one guy going on Wednesday an...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 24

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 24 Let your cheering and applause engulf us!! We are inside the top 1 million now. That’s right we have made it and will no longer be forced to fight in the pits, a la Spartacus (Season 1). With a score of 63 we were 20 points above the average. It was 272k ranking for the game-week and it made it back to back weeks over 60 points for the first time this season. We now sit in 839k and that is the highest we have been since GW13. Hopefully this signals that our luck is turning and we will no longer be held hostage, by the black cloud that has been hovering over us for what seems all season long. GW23 in summary A strong overall week for the FF247 team despite another wrong choice with the captaincy. Hennessey got us 3 points, nothing to write home...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 23

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 23 Hallelujah!!! A green arrow has come back to visit us after we finally managed to hit on the perfect captain. After a rough season and many disappointments, this past GW was celebrated like an Arsenal 4th place trophy, we hugged, drank some champagne and said flowery French phrases to each other. For one week all was right in the FPL world and our 65 points helped us jump over 200K spots. With 16 game-weeks left we still believe that we can reach a ranking that while still somewhat disappointing, is at least respectable, particularly considering where we still sit in the overall. GW22 in summary The team decided to play without a keeper this week…well we had one, but it was the Palace one versus City, so we got a fat zero. As we expected. We m...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 21

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 21 Last GW we were sitting at 966 points and felt the sting of not having those two sixes at the end, upside down. So naturally we scored 33 and made it to our desired number of 999. You can choose to believe that or not, but that’s our story and we are tentatively sticking to it. Our score of 33 was 7 below the average and it landed our GW ranking at 2.6 million and something, but who is counting anyway? After that interesting score, we of course got visited by the guest of honour, Mr. Red Arrow. We now sit at 1.1 million and feel that the five monkeys we have hired to take over the site team, can’t possibly do any worse than the five monkeys that were in charge. So please welcome our new team staff as they look to better the extremely low...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 18

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 18 You can say a lot of things about our performance thus far, one thing you can’t say is that we are not inconsistent. We have managed to score a game-week rank of one million or higher in 13 of the 17 GWs so far! We have now collected seven straight red arrows and looking at the make up of our team, seem unlikely to stop the bleeding anytime soon. Hopefully by now you have figured out that the key to your success could be to simply stay away from any moves that we make. So whoever we sell, buy him, whoever we buy, sell him. Should be simple enough. Hopefully this last recommendation gets me sacked, as writing this has become more depressing than being a United or Chelsea fan. GW17 in summary Our defence laid a collective egg. Six points was our...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 17

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 17 Another week, another red arrow. That makes it six on the bounce for us, we are now challenging Chelsea for most embarrassing season. We scored 53 points which was only two above the average. Our GW rank was above 1.7 million and all this naturally led to us dropping in the overall to a bit over 1.1 million. Although we only went down about 60k or so spots, it is really difficult imagining getting this turned around. At this stage we would be happy to welcome the 2016-2017 season and get this nightmare over with. GW15 in summary In another brilliant move, we kicked off the game-week with our ever consistent crap transfer. We defy any of you to get so many transfers wrong! In a row!! The saddest part is that there is usually not a whole lot of fighti...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 16

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 16 There are so many words that could be used to describe this game-week and in particular our boo-boo behind the scenes when getting our team ready. However instead of sitting here and making a bunch of excuses, all we will say is that a mistake happened and we are moving on and hoping that we are able to reverse this season. There comes a time when a committee must put their collective foot down and say “enough is enough!” And they did. They all resigned! Suffice to say we won’t let them get away that easily and so they were all reinstated with immediate effect! Well at least until the game-week starts and stuff starts going tits up again. Anyways we scored 50, which comes out to 46 after the hit is deducted. That would and should h...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 15

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 15 After last week’s backing by the board, the team committee felt confident that they would be given time to straighten out this mess, in particular because the same members of the team committee also form the board. Having said that, we are proud to announce that we (the board) have given a pay rise to the team committee members as a sign of good faith. Moving on to the other business at hand, we managed another red arrow, no surprise there I guess. Chelsea players nowadays try harder than some of our committee members! We scored 60 points and after a four point hit, we totaled 56, which was only a measly 5 points more than the average for the game-week. We only dropped 30k in the overall, which was a bit surprising, but we will take it, becaus...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 14

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 14 After three successive green arrows, and things starting to look rosy again, we have now somehow recorded another three successive reds! We plunged over 70,000 places this week. Let that sink in for a second. 70,000 places… This time last season 700 would have felt like a dagger. 7000 would have been a mortal blow and panic stations. It’s time to offer up the dreaded ‘vote of confidence’ – “The board would like to announce that it has every confidence in its managers ability to arrest the recent slump and turn things around and avoid relegation this season. Funds are tight but we are sure with a bit of wheeling and dealing that the right players can be acquired to come in and give the club the boost it requires...Read More

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 13

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 13 Fantasy managers get tight hammies also, even we need a rest sometimes from the grind that is our committee meetings. So when the International Break rolled around it was well received. After a couple of weeks of bad transfers we certainly could use a break and fully mend our wounds. Hopefully these two weeks should cure everything that ails us as a committee. However before we move on let us give a quick rundown of why Wenger thinks we needed a rest. We scored 40 points last game-week which was 5 below the average. This dropped us about 140K spots in the overall and this now leaves us in #$@%K, sorry 750K. In goal we had Boaz Myhill who got a controversial start. Some in our committee felt like we should have bought de Gea in his place and voted th...Read More
