Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 2 None of that Friday night nonsense this week. Our game-week kicks off at lunchtime on Saturday with Cardiff hosting Newcastle, a game that has relegation 6 pointer written all over it. We then have four games at the traditional kick off time of 3pm. Everton entertain Southampton. It’s a battle of the animals at The King Power stadium as the Foxes host Wolves. It’s an all London affair with Spurs playing host to Fulham, while Bournemouth travel to West Ham. Saturday is brought to a conclusion with the game of the weekend when Chelsea host Arsenal at 5:30pm. Sunday brings us another three games. Burnley host Watford in a game that is unlikely to cure any hangovers. Huddersfield will be hoping to improve on their opening day result but that’s unlike...[Read More]

With Nacho being back training since Saturday and being a natural left back, one would expect the Spaniard to have the inside track. On Cech, the new boss had this to say “They have diffe...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2 Well, well, well – 82 points scored in GW1 with 37 of those points coming from our 3 playing defenders. Robertson, Shaw and Mendy all performed heroically with bonus points flying all over the place! Richarlison’s brace was also most welcome while Salah chipped in with his customary goal. Firmino provided an assist but with Liverpool scoring four we may have expected more. The rest of our number were 2pt bums, while like many other managers, we left Wan-Bissaka’s 12 points on the bench. Overall we are delighted with the start, overall rank means nothing at this stage. Last Week’s Result What have we done this week? Like many of you we have decided to sit on our hands this week and roll our transfer over. To be honest this was always the plan and i...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 2 Hello everyone, it’s great to be back writing for another season – though, with this being the earliest in August I have written an article, it’s definitely been the hardest to write! So, looking back to Gameweek 1 and there is a bit of a correlation between the most owned players and points scored, in that hardly any of the favourites among the FPL competitors went on to score highly! De Gea, Pickford, Trippier, De Bruyne and Kane collectively managed five points between them. Look, then, at the highest points scorers and McCarthy is owned by just 1.4 per cent, Mendy has got 13.4 per cent of managers putting their trust in him and Wilson has just 5.3 per cent. So, don’t feel bad if your first week didn’t go to plan, a lot of other managers will have fared ...[Read More]

A Midsummer Night’s Fantasy … (Football Musings)

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 2 Two phrases I’ve learned and hated my entire adult life – ‘think outside the box’ and ‘introspect’. As though it mattered much, since my own life was involved in finance and statistics, where you actually look inside ‘boxes’ (and not those of the nice kind mind you) and introspecting gets you called a lackadaisical weirdo. We left that to the office shrink. But a new season of fantasy football is upon us. A lot of bets have been placed. Some (unjustifiable) ego and pride are at stake. Many of us are just a tad bit short of a suicidal Japanese-workaholic. And the only thing keeping us from tearing our hair out and sticking a pen in Slick Joe’s eye, as he lathers up yet another pretty new intern with his smooth words, hair, gestures and just the right touch o...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 2 Here we are, already diving into Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 2. Gameweek 1’s high flyers comprised the usual medley of routine regulars and ragtag randoms we’ve come to expect from the dawning weekend of an FPL season. Thousands took to the streets for Mo Salah’s 8 points; hundreds danced in the aisles to the tune of Jamie Vardy’s late Old Trafford cameo; while one hungover bloke from Swindon raised a refilled glass of mulled wine to his previous night’s drunken captain punt on Watford’s Roberto Pereyra. Disappointments for many included Harry Kane’s continued August allergy and Sergio Aguero’s unwillingness to find an unmarked Kevin De Bruyne with a square pass. In summary, GW1 belonged t...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 2. And as quickly as that, it is all over. All the optimism pumped into you on these boards over the past few weeks has been shattered, all that boasting to your mates that they may as well just pay you the league winner’s money before the season starts has backfired, and all that time picking hidden ‘gems’ was wasted. Indeed, the only hidden gem we truly managed to find – Aaron Wan-Bissaka – was parked on our benches, sandwiched between reckless Enabler A and feckless Enabler B. I joke, of course. We are one week in. I will save you the patronising hare and tortoise, sprint and marathon rubbish in the hope that someone wildcards for the entertainment of the rest of the site. Gameweek 1 will ...[Read More]

MLS Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer GW25

While the English Premier League kicked off its new season, over the pond the Fall season continued in typical MLS style with unexpected results all over the shop. In the Cascadia Cup, Portland’s unbeaten run of 15 games was finally snapped by the visitors from Vancouver. Elsewhere, it was surprising to see Philadelphia make it 3 wins in their last 4 away games, considering they only had 1 win in their previous 8 road matches. In fantasy terms there were few big scorers, as the goals were shared around much more than we’ve seen recently. For example, across Saturday’s 8 games, 21 goals were scored by 20 different goal-scorers, with the only brace coming from the most unlikely source (a Philly defender, playing away, with only 0.67% ownership!). Further multiple goal-scorers did follow on S...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW2

Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW2 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW2. You have probably noticed the change in name and that Rosco and I are no longer known as Barry and Paul. The reason for this name change is out of respect for one of Britain’s greatest comedians, Barry Chuckle who unfortunately passed away last week. This meant we needed a new duo and there are many out there to choose from but it was decided that we needed to pick a duo that really represented us so we went with Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas better known as Dumb and Dumber! We’ll let you decide on who’s who! Last week saw the return of the Premier League and resulted in the first winner of the maiden Harry and Lloyd’s, Goal Machine, on a whopping 19 points with Labyrinth i...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 1 And we are off!! Another season of bitter FPL disappointment for most gets rolling when Leicester travels to Old Trafford to take on Jose’s happy warriors. That Friday night fixture is followed by six more on Saturday. A lunch time affair sees Newcastle and Spurs face off in the battle of who spent the least this transfer window. That is followed by The Cherries vs newcomers Cardiff. Fulham who is also recently promoted, tangle with Palace, Huddersfield plays host to Sarri-ball, Watford dukes it out with Brighton and in the late game we get a first look at the much talked about Wolves side when they face off vs Everton. Sunday brings us the last three fixtures. Liverpool begin what promises to be an exciting season that is likely to end the...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1 We’re back! Last season was something of a disappointment as we finished with our lowest rank since we first introduced the site team back in 2014/15. We don’t set ourselves any goals at the beginning of each season but at the very least we want to beat last season’s final rank. Hang on, is that a goal?! Just like the rest of you we’ve spent five minutes hours agonising over who to include in our GW1 squad and we’re finally there. Are we happy? Ask us that around 6pm on Sunday evening! Below we have outlined some of our thought process when picking our squad. Hopefully it makes sense! Goalkeepers When we posted our very provisional squad a couple of weeks ago we had two £4.5m keepers. This then became a premium and a £4.0m option before reverting to two...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 1 Where have the last three months gone? May 13th only seems like yesterday. It was a summer dominated for much of us by events in Russia. England won a penalty shoot-out and football nearly came home. The likes of Germany and Spain disappointed while the French eventually triumphed. But that’s all in the past. It’s been an interesting summer in the Premier League. Of last season’s top 6, Chelsea and Arsenal have new managers. Jose is still moaning. Spurs are yet to add to last season’s squad. Liverpool have spent a fortune. And, City are still the ones to beat. Elsewhere, Everton have spent £50m on a player who disappeared last season. Mike Ashley continues to be a favourite amongst the Geordies. Last but certainly not least, Colin is back! All of this and m...[Read More]
