FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10. What a strange game-week. Come Saturday night with just two Sunday matches to come we were languishing badly. Our captain Sterling had persuaded Pep he was tired and was left on the bench, Jesus was also benched but did nothing in the 15mins he was given, Silva played the 90 but did nothing, de Gea for once let us down and Alonso, ah good old Alonso, the bane of our team, the man who has brought division and uprising to our meetings contributed a solitary point to our cause – even his most die-hard supporter is having trouble justifying his presence anywhere near our team. There were some positives, but they were minimal – assists for Groß and Choupo and a clean sheet for Cedric – ever...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 10. Well, that was a rubbish gameweek, wasn’t it?! With my phone usually buzzing away each gameweek with goal and FPL-related alerts, I wondered if there was something wrong with it on the Saturday as nothing happened! You then hear stories of people who had forgotten to change their team, meaning they hadn’t brought in the likes of Jesus or Morata, kept the captain armband on Kane – having placed it on him before the Bournemouth game – and not done what I did and benched Monreal either. Those are the few managers who will be looking at some serious green arrows right now! Anyway, it’s already a quarter of the way through the season and so let’s see if we can banish the ghouls ahead of the gameweek near...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 10 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 10. I must admit I completely forgot I was writing this article this week due to mixing up Uni work and FPL work but after getting a swift kick from a certain big chicken I went into overdrive to deliver this masterpiece to you all! Now down to business, Liverpool let in goals (shocker!!), Kane scored a few and Kun was back on the score board. All pretty expected things to happen this past weekend but one thing that was (perhaps) not so expected was Pep Guardiola the Patron Saint of Rotation! With most people transferring Sterling in and even captaining him and others having Jesus up top after Aguero’s injury Pep decided to screw everyone over. I loved it because I have neither and seeing ...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 10. I’ve had a couple of bizarre experiences writing here on this site during my tenure. Some of you will remember the DayQuil incident from a season ago – I think I singlehandedly wrote more about the MLS in two hours than the entirety of their pool of staff wrote about their league all week. And before that, I had those growing pains in trying to learn the nonsensical nature of writing proper English (essentially, if you think you should add a ‘u’ to a word, just add the ‘u’ to be safe). And there was also a time when I used a double space between each of my sentences (American standard) – and it still makes me laugh imagining the editors going over my entire article each week ...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 9. We get started early with our FPL weekend with a Friday match up of West Ham’s Jose ‘2 point’ Hernandez vs that guy with the weird B or double ss, Groß from Brighton. Saturday then sees the struggling champions Chelsea facing off against the surprising Hornets. Five 3pm games follow that lunch time affair. Huddersfield host the ‘scared of Liverpool’ Manchester United, City go for 10 goals vs Burnley, Newcastle takes on Hodgson and all his memes, Stoke show their face vs Bournemouth and Swansea tangle with the Shakespeare-less Leicester. Sunday brings a conclusion to GW9 with Everton and their soon to be sacked Koeman versus the will never be sacked Wenger and hi...Read More

Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9. Not exactly a classic week for us the last one! 8 of our players scored 4 points or less. Our top scorer was Sterling, who was actually our transfer in last time, so at least we had some modicum of satisfaction in a job well done in that respect. That he scored almost a third of our points was either simply genius or a bad reflection on the other two thirds! Almost certainly the latter. That we left good old Tom Carroll and his 8 points on the bench, and that he would have been our 3rd top scorer had we not, was simply either dumb or a bad reflection on the other 8 players! Almost certainly the latter. Captain Kane bombed but obviously in a week when most players rued the same fate it di...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis and Player Tips Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis and Player Tips Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 9. This is a bit of a strange week we have in store; not only do we have to navigate around the CL schedule, we also have to plan ahead for a Friday kick-off between West Ham and Brighton (only the best matches for Fridays, eh?). And due to this double dose of awesomeness, we here at HQ have decided to combine a couple of our feature articles this week to make sure that we have enough time for you all to properly plot your teams accordingly. So with that in mind, this article will feature Fixtures (by me) and Tips (by Cookie) side by side. Or maybe ‘side by side’ isn’t the best way to put it, it’s more of a top/bottom kind of effect. So I’ll give my picks on the Fixtures, and ...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9. Earlier this year myself and my better half (I’m lucky to have her she tells me frequently) moved into our ‘forever’ home. I call it this as moving home is horrific so I’ll never be doing that again. Our ‘new’ home is over 100 years old and as such needs a lot of care and attention. Weekends are now a non-stop onslaught of DIY hell (with every possible sport media outlet playing in the background). Frequent trips to the local DIY store have replaced lounging in front of Sky Sports all weekend and my FPL team has suffered accordingly. Well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. Much like an old house your FPL team needs constant care and attention, neglect it for too long and before you...Read More

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

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
