Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW16. Normal service resumed in GW15 with no majorly surprising results. In terms of the scores, Liverpool’s emphatic 1-5 win away to Brighton was the standout victory, Man City scraped a 2-1 over West Ham with many predicting a landslide victory that never came. Dwight Gayle popped up with the first goal of the GW in Newcastle’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea, proving once again that predicting the first scorer of the GW is actually quite tricky! LAST WEEKS WINNERS! Top spot for the week was shared by MBD, DenPerryDidit and Coys9 with 14pts, everyone’s favourite cock Inittowinit took second place with 13pts, all the more impressive given that he predicted Man City to put 14 past West Ham! Bry and Matt (fix I here...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 16. GW15 saw explosive returns for an old Captain Tips favourite Philippe Coutinho. His goal and 3 assists playing an integral part in Liverpool’s demolition of Brighton. Not that he didn’t get any help though, Mo Salah chipped in with an assist of his own, and Roberto Firmino continued to bemuse non-owners with 2 goals in what has proved to be a frustratingly unpredictable campaign. Perhaps the biggest story of the past two gameweeks has been Jesse Lingard’s 3 goals and 3 assists, proving to be an unexpected bargain basement route into Man Utd and showing form worthy of captaincy. Well, steady on. For now. The most likely source of points, and a captaincy poster boy, did...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 16. And sort of GW17 too. And sort of GW18 also! The reason we say this is because there is another midweek feast of games coming up straight after GW16. We may only just be into December but the silly season is clearly in full swing already. And to prove it here is your fun fact of the day: between GW16 beginning this Saturday and GW22 ending on the 3rd of January there are 26 calendar days. On 17 of those there is a Premier League game occuring. There are only 9 days without one. Rotation, anyone? Just as a bit of housekeeping, before we get into the nuts and bolts of the article itself, we will have your usual full raft of articles this week prior to GW16 kicking off on Saturday – F...Read More

FF247 #UCLFantasy Captain Picks Matchday 6

FF247 #UCLFantasy Captain Picks Matchday 6 The midweek matches mark the final chance for #UCLFantasy managers to claw back deficits/consolidate leads before the competition breaks till mid-February. Here are The Stats Zone’s seven captaincy candidates to consider ahead of Matchday 6: The code to join the FF247 mini-league is 31736NF8 The code to join the TSZ mini-league is 92434WJW THE BIG THREE Neymar — PSG — Forward — €11.3m — Bayern Munich (away – Tuesday) Only a Bayern win by four or more goals on Tuesday evening would deprive Paris Saint-Germain of top spot in Group B – but then Unai Emery and Les Parisiens have spectacularly blown such an advantage before. PSG will surely then field a near-full strength team in midweek, with leading Ligue I goalscorer Edinson Cavani having been...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 15

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 15 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 15. FPL seems like we’re back to some sort of normality. No we’re not talking rotation worries or half your bench coming into play – or not if you own Coutinho or Sane. No, Sir, no. This week we welcome back two of our favourite characters. The Lord has risen and against the odds appears to be seen first at The Hawthorns. Yes, Pardew is back! We will again get to witness the flippant pressers and the self-obsessed post-match interviews. Now if that wasn’t enough excitement as we get into the Advent season then we have been bestowed another gift. It not be gold. Nor frankincense. Not even myrrh. It is of course Mr Wrigley himself. Big Sam! It’s all too much. The dancing duo back on our screens....Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15. We of course played our wildcard and while the results weren’t instantly remarkably ‘WOW’, we did ok, given the rotation nightmares that many seemed to suffer. We scored 55 vs an average of 47, giving us a weekly rank of 1.3mln and saw us rise in the overall ranking to 246,768 from 298k. A step in the right direction for sure and as long as it continues, we remain a happy bunch. If you remember, one of the reasons we finally played the wildcard was to sort our defence and our new crew certainly did us proud with Christensen, Mustafi and Dunk all recording clean sheets. However, the true tale of our game-week came late on in the action as Sterling and Salah came up trumps, Salah from th...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 15

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 1 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 15. With this being the second gameweek in only a few days we are getting our first glimpse into the hectic future that will befall us all over the forthcoming Christmas period. Footie on the telly pretty much every day, holidays from education or work coming up, life will be good, so long as Pep, Conte, Jose and co. don’t screw us over too much with their rotation and mind games that will no doubt start up very soon if it hasn’t already! In my last Captain Picks article I tipped Aaron Mooy and got some (a lot!!) of ribbing for it and since then the bald Aussie has done sweet F. all!!! This has turned me off picking a differential pick that I like to do because I don’t want to jinx any more...Read More

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW15

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW15 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW15. We’ve barely had time to process GW14 and already planning and panic has set in for GW15! There were some surprise results in GW14, anyone have Everton down for a 4-0 victory? No me either! Midweek fixtures always throw up some interesting scores. This GW it’s back to normality and then GW16 will see us officially into the crazy Christmas fixtures we keep hearing about. LAST WEEKS WINNER! Top spot was shared in GW14 between G-Spot and WhoIsRonaldo with 12pts, way out in front of second placed Matt (fix?), Steee-veh and Mito on 8pts, followed closely by Shane, COYS, Smash, Seren and Wazzalam with 7pts. Thanks to everyone who entered, better luck next week everyone! Congrats to G-spot and WhoisRonaldo...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 14. A Tuesday night Live Match Chat… Woohoo! Everyone loves a midweek GW don’t they?! The points come thick and fast, no waiting around for the matches to start, it’s all or nothing and done in the blink of an eyelid, relatively. Tuesday has 4 games with Brighton hosting a resurgent Palace, Leicester looking to further disrupt Spurs’ season, an in-form Watford hoping to capitalise on Jose’s indecision as to whether to attack or stifle and it ends with West Brom and Newcastle staring blankly at each other from their own halves, waiting for the other to blink. And probably not even reacting when the other does. Wednesday concludes our GW with another quick-fire succ...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14. BEFORE YOU READ ANYTHING ELSE… THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS TONIGHT! 18:45 GMT Raz you have been warned! Talk about chasing last week’s points! We brought in Wilson and Pogba after they seemingly ‘hit form’ with a joint total of 29 points last time. This time… 5! In total. That’ll teach us. Or them. We are on a wildcard this week, but will they make the cut? Stay tuned to find out. In total we got 57 points which was actually ok, the average was 43 and it saw us ahem ‘rocket’ up the rankings (not that hard from such a lowly base!) from 420k to 279,771. Still a long way to go but at least it’s a jump in the right direction after three cons...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 14 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 14. I’m rarely referred to as ‘a man of few words’. Indeed, some around these parts (Mito), have ribbed me mercilessly over my inability to keep my word count below Tolkien levels. Therefore, with time short and only 2 days between game-weeks 13 and 14, time, both yours and mine is precious. I shall endeavour to embrace brevity; no recounting my DIY mishaps, no shameless bragging of my latest ‘vacation’, no time for distractions. The first mid-week fixtures of the season will give us all a glimpse of things to come; three game-weeks, played over ten days. Normality briefly returns for GW15, then we’re officially into the festive fixtures, and it’s looking busier than ever this season. GW16...Read More
