Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 8 and there’s no bigger match in English football to get us under way as Man Utd visit Liverpool. Five 3pm matches follow as Burnley host West Ham, pointless Palace welcome the posh boys of Chelsea, free scoring Man City host Stoke, Bournemouth are this week’s visitors to Wembley, as they try and stop the HurriKane, and the prize for the dullest game of the day goes to Swansea vs Huddersfield. Early evening sees the Gooners make the short trip to Watford. Two matches follow on Sunday – first up struggling Everton get a day by the seaside as they go to Brighton before Southampton welcome Newcastle further along the coast. The Premier League has decided to treat us a 3-day game-...Read More

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 8

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 8 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 8. A strange gameweek which feels like a lifetime ago. The average was 51, we smashed that with 63 and two our of our own contributed 2/3 of those points! Our Spurs duo of Captain Kane and Mr Reliable Davies did us proud and frankly shamed most of the others. Another clean sheet from DDG was complimented nicely by an assist from Choupo-Moting… the rest really should look away in shame. Even the Alonso owners have switched their phones off in fear that some will try and advocate selling him this week! Would they really though, with such a favourable run of games ahead? This turn in fixtures would have tested even their resolve, surely? But we do have a panel of extremes, from the flake...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8. I’m sure you’ll all agree that the Tips article written by GP ahead of GW7 was nothing short of excellent, after all he included the legend that is Oumar Niasse. However, I must admit that I was a little jealous having read said article. Why? Well GP is in the process of moving house which is always exciting. He was off on his jollies to the principality of Monaco where he was to be wined & dined by royalty! Surely you were also jealous? Well I’m not jealous anymore. You mean you haven’t heard? Scottish people are genetically inferior to the rest of us. In other words, they’re short. So Gordon Strachan says so and who am I to question Gordon? So Scotland won’t be going to Russia and neither will the Dutch but...Read More

Fantasy Football Top 20 Analysis

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Football Top 20 Analysis. Kun? No Can Do! “… Kathmandu?” Ok! That took it a bit too far. But that’s just how funny I am. Really! Between having absolutely no sense of humour to trying to sound an iota as funny as those other legendary writers on this site, I just don’t know how to go about this. So bear with me guys. Be gentle with me (Yikes! Here I go again!). So, after what seems to be years and decades of freeloading on FF247’s advice, news, wall-street-level stats, suggestions, rate-my-teams and ‘funny-as-other-people’s-pain’ humour; I decided to crunch some numbers and finally give back. If by giving back, it means that the very cool admins accept this (future) Pulitzer piece. The fact that FF247 sent me a free t-shirt, with th...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8. The boring Premier League returns after another exhilarating feast of international football. We now have to wait until early-November for our next international break fix and instalment of thrilling matches; it’s a real shame to see world-class players being taken from their countries, purely for the sake of serving their mandatory club duties, ugh. Let’s distract ourselves from the impending mundane month by guessing which players will perform best for their irrelevant and depressing clubs. Harry Kane vs Bournemouth (H) This is the one name whose omission would cause major disapproval. Reflecting on the mesmerising international break above, it was Kane who shone for England, at least ...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8. Bit of a different take this week and it’s driven by what I’ve seen so far this season in terms of FPL. We usually use this article to simply lay out which 3 or 4 teams have the best fixtures over the next few weeks. And which ones don’t. Which is grand, and usually works. There’s a trend going on that I’ve noticed though and it is that the top teams are hammering everyone else! Ok, so not every single time, but probably more often than not. So do you want me to come on here and tell you which of Bournemouth or Brighton have the better fixtures over the next 3 weeks? I could, but what’s the point? At this stage all eyes (and transfers) are on that ‘...Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017/18

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 The International break is here and it is of course time for another edition of Bore Off! This time we have given the 3 Amigos a break and found their possible replacements in the near future. Bry is welcomed in, many of you know him from his other work on the site or perhaps you have seen him busking on the tube in Japan. Banjo also joins us, luckily for him we have only asked him to answer questions and not make the coffee. However, I would still keep my distance as he answers, for your own safety. Last and least (according to FPL) is Smash, who we have asked as a form of therapy for him. Hey, let us get on with it and see what The Last SamuBry, Wilshere x8 and Hulk Smash have to say about their seasons so far and what is to...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 7. Your last chance for some FPL points before we go off again on another pointless international break and all your star players get to globe trot like carbon emissions are a thing of the past. GW7 spans just Saturday and Sunday this time and we begin with Spurs on the road (that’s good Spurs then) as they go to Huddersfield at lunchtime. We then have five 3pm kick-offs. None of which look particularly exciting if we are being totally honest! Man United hosting Palace may be for those who captained Lukaku, but then again who didn’t! Hence the lack of excitement… The best game on Saturday (in theory) is being kept back until the evening and sees the current champs Chelsea host...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 Tips Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 7. Hello and welcome to a shorter than normal Tips article for week seven. The reasons for my time being a bit tight right now are plenty. I have childcare issues – mainly that the schools are currently on holiday! I move house in three weeks and the hassles and general ball-achery which accompanies. I am swamped a bit at work with general silly season and long hours in the office. Also, having borne witness first hand that my Rangers are about as far away from big rivals Celtic as I am from my gym locker and membership card, then you kind of get the picture that I’m scrambling a bit. On top of all this I have to consider how I’m going to live up to the legend that is Lord Pardew as I’m scheduled for a meeting with ...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 7. Hola Amigos! I was asked to step away from my day job for a moment, of hiding in the Colombian mountains growing…eh…medicine, to try and help this wonderful community with their FPL captain choices, by the way, just shoot me a message if any of you need any…eh…medicine. Unlike most weeks or seasons that I can remember, this 2017/18 season has morphed into, ‘which forward do I captain?’ It is hard to fault anyone for owning three 10 million or above priced strikers, however that also makes it hard to pick the correct captain week in and week out, because we are spoiled for choice. There is something to be said for owning only one good pot (where have yo...Read More
