Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW28

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW28 Looking at last game-week, there are only a couple of scores that really standout. The obvious one is of course Newcastle’s 1-0 victory over Man Utd, one half of the Brothers Chuckle is especially happy with that one! The other; Huddersfield’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth, the other half of the brothers Chuckle no doubt equally made up, given his love for a certain Aaron Mooy. The rest was all pretty much as expected; Man City scored loads and won, Watford showed their 4-1 win over Chelsea was a one-off, reverting to type in a 2-0 defeat West Ham and Spurs proved once more that they are top-dogs of North London with a 1-0 win over Arsenal. Many correctly predicted Harry Kane as first scorer (hardly a Mystic Meg moment), but its last week’s winner, the ma...Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2 Part two of our GABO series sees three more of our writing team come to the party and attempt to tackle the same questions that Mito, Init and Kop answered. Again, they need little introduction as all three are very well known to you all as they are always seen on site commenting, helping or advising. Or recommending Dusan Tadic or Aaron Mooy. Leading the pack is Gallant Pioneer. GP, as he is more commonly known to us is having the season of his life and is set fair for his best ever FPL ranking. Yet he is always willing to help others and write when called upon. Oh. And he loves Dusan Tadic. Rosco is one of our resident Geordies but is most loved for his gravatar of Flash from Dukes of Hazard. He’s a great lad, offers ...Read More

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 1

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 1 As you should all be aware we are now entering crunch time for the season. The DGWs are on the horizon and a Blank GW is even closer still. In addition to Cezary’s superb article on how to negotiate GW31, we have again turned to some FPL ‘experts’ as to what plans they are making for GW31 and also some other more general FPL topics. And of course we finish in a more light-hearted fashion as we allow our panel to express their views on some easy targets! Our article is split into two groups. In this episode we have the old codgers – three people who helped to found FF247 and play an active day-to-day role in ensuring the site is what it is. You know them all well and they should need little introduction. However, that wo...Read More

Navigating upcoming GWs to field a strong team in BGW31

Welcome to Navigating upcoming GWs to field a strong team in BGW31 It’s been a tough FPL season for many of us. The bad news is that it’s about to get even tougher with a number of blank and double GWs to navigate as we slowly reach its final stages. There is good news too though: there is a huge opportunity in those trickier upcoming weeks and those of us who’ll take advantage of it will be the ones who may still find pride in their OR once the dust of this FPL season has finally settled. The first stage of this opportunity has begun already and will end with a very tough BGW31. The purpose of this article is to provide some thoughts on how to manage our FPL teams throughout this stage. Or in other words, to answer the following question: How can we field 10 players in BGW31 without sacri...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 27. What a way to kick off the game-week – the North London derby. Kane gets the chance to continue his impressive run vs Arsenal, Mkhi and Aubameyang get the opportunity to prove that last week wasn’t beginner’s luck while Dele Alli’s diving may see him appear more on YouTube than his current celeb status on RedTube. Just four 3pm matches follow as Everton look to bounce back as they host Palace, Brighton are today’s lucky winners as they get to go to Stoke, Swansea and Burnley compete with the previous match for Bore of the Day and West Ham clash with Watford. The early evening match sees (no doubt) many Kun capo’ers cheer on their love as Riyad Mahrez finally gets the opportunity to play at...Read More

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27. Well, we scored 45 which was just above the average of 43. So not bad, but ultimately not that good. But better than some we have heard from this week, so maybe we should just suck it up and get on with it. We capo’d the wrong bloke (Kun), our two Chelsea defenders didn’t play, Pogba was benched, our Shaqiri scored vs our Begovic. Otamendi and City conceded, Sterling missed an open goal. We could go on, but they were the main lowlights. Aside from Shaqiri’s header (which illustrates perfectly the lunacy of the week), good ol’ Salah continued his run of consistent and impressive form with his brace vs Spurs and just to prove there were some FPL gods smiling down at us, Matthew Lowton ap...Read More

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 27. Those of us who write for the site have a WhatsApp chat which is primarily used to ensure that everyone knows who’s writing what and when. From time to time there is some conversation and on Monday night it went a little like this, (abridged version)… Rosco: Fixtures sent, off to shoot myself in the face. Init: Good luck with that, you’ll probably miss. Init: Oh dear. Kop has a rival misery guts judging by the first paragraph. AT: Ahh shite Rosco: What’s up hun? AT: I might have to rewrite mine to be more upbeat. Can’t have the whole site plunged into a state of misery all week hahaha. Rosco it was an excellent intro, I share your pain mate. It has however got me thinking. Perhaps I should try being posit...Read More

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 27 2017/18 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 27. I have two comments to make on Gameweek 26: thank God I captained Salah, and if any of you scored less than one point across your entire backline, please come forward. I will leave it at that. As a late (at least) second-choice call-up to write this article, it promises mediocrity. I say late, I have had plenty of time to write this up; I even got an extension. The mediocrity is not for want of trying though: Salah is so consistent and Manchester City’s fixtures seem to be constantly so good, that any other player I thrust above the parapet will inevitably be shot down by a wave of eagle-eyed FPL experts. How frightening. After my first article, ‘Gameweek 25 Fixtures’, I was lambasted ...Read More

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 27. Sometimes we do things in life because we feel obliged to. Christenings are a good example. I’ve never attended a Christening and thought ‘wow that was a great christening’. You know how it is though, your mate Dave from work invited you and Dave is a sound bloke, you don’t want to offend anyone, so you go. Once you’re there you never find yourself thinking ‘you know what, this is actually pretty good’, that never happens. So you sit there, play the part. Dave’s happy you went, the Mrs thinks Dave’s wife is canny so she’s alright, but you just want it to be over. That’s how I currently feel about FPL. Last game-week was brutal, the Marcos Alonso injury tipped me over the edge, just as I ...Read More

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW27

Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW27 Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions GW27. This week it was a relatively low scoring affair here at B&P’s predictions. Chelsea getting spanked for the second week in a row didn’t help, and if you were looking to Brighton v West Ham and Bournemouth v Stoke for your predictable draws, you were clearly looking in the wrong place. Let hope normality returns to both FPL and B&P’s this coming game-week! LAST WEEKS WINNERS! All it took to win this week was 10pts, Init duly obliged and left Igy, Potty, Mito, Fieldy, Leprechaun and Bongo trailing in his wake with a 9pts. Great to have Potty back and straight into the weekly leaderboard this week! Thanks to everyone who entered, better luck next week everyone else! Weekly Leaderboard GW 27 Winner ...Read More

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 26. And we are back already! We hope the midweek games treated you kindly but if not, don’t worry, we are straight into another GW so it can all be forgotten. And then probably all repeated again, just in case you forgot already! We begin with Burnley hoping that their bus is big enough to contain Man City’s juggernaut. It won’t be. We then have five 3pm games and all are much a muchness in terms of calling a winner with perhaps the exception of Man Utd hosting Huddersfield but try calling the others and you’ll be lucky to get 1 right. Saturday evening will surely see Theo stick one up Arsene as the Gunners pay tribute to one of their most prolific players of recent tim...Read More
