FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions

FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions Thanks for reading FPL Ramblings Part 3 The Midfield Minions : In previous seasons the budget midfielder has more often than not been a player who was priced at £4.5m or below who sat on your bench week in week out and would hopefully deliver you 2pts when called upon. For some of you that may also be the case this season but with the way this season has panned out many of you will undoubtedly be placing much more emphasis on your budget midfielder. 3-5-2 has emerged from the wilderness this season meaning that your 5th midfielder needs to be someone who is capable of scoring points on a semi-regular basis. Those of you who continue with the tried and trusted 3-4-3 formation may be deploying a budget player as your 4th midfielder, particularly if y...Read More

FPL Ramblings Part 2 The Striker Conundrum

FPL Ramblings Part 2 The Striker Conundrum Welcome to FPL Ramblings Part 2 The Striker Conundrum: What to do? Who to buy? But… if I sell him, I just know it is going to come back to haunt me. If I get this other guy, what happens if the other top striker goes off?! I am afraid of Aguero, but Costa has been so consistent. How about Zlatan? He is on fire right now. There is also some fella named Harry that pops up and gets some nice points for managers. What to do? Well, sometimes FPL is about gut feel. Sure you can lean on the stats and go with the majority in many cases, but this might not be one of those moments. The top 4 strikers (when fit or not kicking David Luiz) have made this difficult. We also can’t overlook the cheaper options. Because they have also caused us to doub...Read More

FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders

FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders Welcome to FPL Ramblings Part 1 Wildcard Wonders: With the advent of the the January wildcard there has been much discussion as to when it is best to play this particular tactic. It lurks in the shadows like a tempting mistress from the second it is available, but can you resist, or indeed should you? Some have already jumped on it like a ravenous Boris Johnson presented with the slightest hint of thigh and devoured it’s wholesome goodness to sate their appetite for some missing piece in the jigsaw. Which was probably Aguero. It was almost certainly Aguero. DMC nailed it in the comments the other night saying “Ahead of GW20 around 173k Aguero Cards were deployed”!!! For those with it left though they do have a decision to make. One wh...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 20 FPL News: We hope you enjoyed your 17 hours free from FPL and football in general! Yes, you read it right, GW19 ended last night and GW20 starts this morning. Now if that doesn’t smack of rotation then we don’t know what does. Obviously the teams are spread out in some sort of equal ‘ish’ fashion but there is also the issue of having so little time that some injuries will not be reported on. It’s a bit hit and hope in that respect at this time of year and so the team sheets will be eagerly anticipated and we begin at 12.30pm with ‘Boro hosting Leicester, followed by four 3pm games and today ends with Man united visiting West Ham. Tuesday evening see three games, before our week a...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 20 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 20 article. Last time we spoke to you, all of about two days ago, we were in a bit of a pickle and quite frankly a bit stumped and very uninspired by our options. It’s funny like that sometimes in FPL because we ended up having our hand forced a little to do two transfers we wouldn’t ordinarily have done had it not been for a combination of injuries, suspensions or obvious rotation. As it was it ended up being a thoroughly inspired bit of business! We sort of reluctantly brought in Phillips and Defoe with most of the transfer committee agreeing it was the right (and probably only) thing to do whilst at the same time shrugging and yawning at the prospect. Well bugger us, they only w...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 19 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 19 FPL News: We hope you enjoyed your one day off from football because that’s it now until the 4th January! Seriously. We don’t recommend you tell the loved one this, or indeed the wife, but you can kick back and relax now knowing that there are potentially FPL points up for grabs every single day of the holiday. It’s so intense that GW19 ends on Sunday at about 6pm and GW20 begins at 11.30pm on Monday! Given the obvious lack of time between those we won’t have any help articles up between those two but everybody will be around as usual to help with team questions and queries so feel free to pepper the chat below with those. As for the gameweek itself we begin with a single game this evening a...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 19 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 19 article. After two poor weeks in a row we finally had some luck and posted a decent score of 76 to get us back on track and that leaves us at 64,823 overall. Well, we say luck, there’s nothing better than a successful FPL transfer decision and one that brings you 30 points is to be rejoiced! Last week we culled Kane and brought in Zlatan and captained him. Suffice to say the big man didn’t disappoint. And we won’t lie, we had a wry smile when Kane missed his penalty. Game-weeks hang on such fine margins at times. So Zlatan was obviously our bedrock but we saw decent returns elsewhere too, notably from Pedro who we had hung onto more in hope than anticipation as he had miss...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19. Welcome to the Captain Picks article for Gameweek 19. Firstly, let me say Merry Christmas to all of you, and I hope you are busy stuffing your bellies full with Christmas food and beer, enjoying the holidays with your families. While food and family are the best things of Christmas time, we all know the second best thing: the busy Premier League schedule, giving us three rounds of festive football in one week. As we all know, a certain Argentinian is coming back from suspension this GW, so let me put one thing straight right away – I will not be tipping Aguero in this article. This is for a number of reasons: he has a tough matchup against Liverpool, City are struggling at the mome...Read More

Live Match Chat Gameweek 18 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 18 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 18 FPL News: “It’s Christmastime; there’s no need to be afraid”… Sir Bob obviously never played FPL at Christmas. Then again, “And the Christmas bells that ring there, Are the clanging chimes of doom”, maybe he did! It’s the day after the big one and we all wake up to find out whether the FPL Gods will be kind to us with rotation or if they will kick us in the Bob Geldofs. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day with the family, or doing whatever it was you did. It’s over now though, back to the (second) day job – FPL. And we are in full swing today with no less than 8 games. Cruelly, at least for those who indulged properly, we begin with an early kick off...Read More

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 18 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 18 article. Another week and another tumble down the overall. After scoring 37 points we should have not expected anything good to come from it. That score put us in the 3.5 million range for the gameweek and dropped us 37k in the overall. This now leaves us in 117k and adds to our recent struggles. That is three red arrows on the bounce and just think, it could have been worse. During the transfer decision last week we had a fight over buying Andy in for a hit. Thankfully we didn’t, otherwise this could have really been embarrassing to narrate. It is not common that you find great success when your keeper is your highest scorer and we were not the exception. Pickford came to play, Walke...Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off!

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2016-17 Welcome to another edition of Grab, Avoid or Bore Off!! Sneaking in a Bore Off is mighty naughty of me, but as you know, nothing good comes to those who wait. So why wait until the next big break, when I can barge in uninvited now. As usual custom I got those three snarky Amigos back together to answer some relevant FPL questions and a bit of… ehe, let us call them “other” questions. Hopefully the lads can provide you with some insight with some of their answers or at the very least have you raise an eyebrow at a moment of awkwardness. Three big strikers, premium defenders, Jonesy, Ozil’s work rate and Santa’s sexy helper all covered. This could be a moment where I could wish you the best over the...Read More

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 18

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 18 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 18. Despite the protestations of my fellow writer Mito, (yes we allowed him back for another go), there are of course many things to love about Christmas. The food, the togetherness of families, the presents, the time off work, the booze, the birth of Jesus, the annual chance to see all the Die Hard films in a 24-hour period, the carols, the snow – all of the above and lots more make Christmas what it is – but so does one other thing…. Boxing Day football! Game-weeks coming in quick succession and the chance to close or increase a mini-league deficit or lead. Now, first things first, be aware of the deadline for GW18 – 26 December 11.30am. As we said above, Mito makes a...Read More
