Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 24 article. Hmmmmmm. That probably sums everybody’s reaction when they looked at their score this week. We scored 36 for the record. Now usually when you log on and see 36 you expect to have plummeted some 10k places if not more. But to further sum the week up and put it bang in perspective we rose in the rankings. By 9 places! We now sit at 31,899 in the overall rankings. So good was the past week that our entire team managed two assists and one clean sheet between them. Walker got the clean sheet, Coleman and our captain Sanchez got the assists. Wow, what an exciting week! A story echoed everywhere, evidently. Anyway let’s put that one behind us all and hope some of the big guns can out to play again this week. Here are our transfer decisions and rationale for GW24 and our all important captain one…

Transfer for GW24 – Sold  Giroud & Bought Carroll
We always considered Olivier to be a temporary fix. We don’t know why, he just has that feel about him. He goes on a run and then something always happens which leaves him a doubt in our minds. That sort of happened this week as he was hauled off early in a sort of scapegoat manner against Watford. Which leaves you wondering really especially with Walcott having returned with a hat-trick the week before. And then there’s the small matter of Chelsea this week. Plus he won’t be playing in GW26 for sure. Plus he’s a slight doubt for this one from a fitness point of view, possibly an even bigger one in Wenger’s mind! All that lead to us deciding to part company with him.

Onto his replacement then. Now we’d like to have been shopping at the more premium end of the market, of course. The likes of Kane, Costa and Lukaku. But we had a bank of exactly £0.0. Off to the bargain basement then! Carroll, Llorente and Benteke were the suggested choices. Llorente has Man City and Chelsea away in two of his next three games so we didn’t really fancy that one. It was a toss up between the last two. The fixtures are fairly even but we erred on the side of form as despite Benteke scoring the other night that was actually his first goal since GW15 and Big Andy has four since GW18. Tekkers may have previously had an edge with being on penalties but they may be taken from him now too given his propensity for missing them. It was a toss up and we could really have gone with either but we landed on Carroll anyway.


Our Captain is…
Talking of toss ups…!
As yours truly writes this I genuinely don’t know who our captain is going to be! As it stands the voting is level with Alli and Zlatan neck and neck. The deciding vote is mine!

Our team choices are generally sensible and thought through, our captain ones must be ok too given our rank. On the surface all is calm and collected. The following may give you a glimpse behind the curtain…

As Brendan would say “OKAY”… Pick the bones out of that!

Honestly, I’m still none the wiser!

Here are some stats on the teams involved in the decision –
Leicester are similar at home to what ‘Boro are away in terms of conceding. 13 v 12.

Man Utd have scored 16 away / Spurs have scored 25 at home.

Leicester have conceded 7 in their last 4 home games / ‘Boro have conceded 4 in their last 4 away.

Man Utd have scored 7 in their last 4 away games / Spurs have scored 11 in their last 4 at home.

Doesn’t really help does it?! I suggested at some point that we just toss a coin as I couldn’t split them, even on a gut feeling. That is literally what I am about to do!

Heads Alli, Tails Zlatan…

I’ve recorded this too, just in case ;)

It came down heads… ALLI IS OUR CAPTAIN!

  1. Morning guys what to do who to cpt 1ft zero of luck this GW
    cheers DC

    • Save your transfer then you really need to look at that defence !! Maybe Lallana to Snoddy next week and use the spare cash to upgrade Love or Ake.

    • Save the FT

      Solid cappo :ok:

  2. Hello people..So this is going to be my team for this week.. How’s it looking? Although i have fraser contradicting Baines but don’t wish to do a -4 just to field a better player. Also, captaining Ibra as it’s always better to have a last game captain.

  3. Hi guys, quick question. Baines or Coleman? Can’t decide.

  4. Keeping the FT for this week. 0.7 ITB.
    Good to go?

  5. Robles
    Bellerin Coleman Cedric
    Philips Sanchez Alli Lallana Mirallas
    Kane Kun (C)

    Pickford, Barnes Pieters, Amat

    I have 1 FT and 0.2 ITB. Plan for next week is to trade Alonso for Bellerin. Should I go for WBA cover since they don’t blank.

    I’m thinking of changing 1 defender this week and 1 the next, bringing in WBA cover (who can only be Nyom as I have only exactly 6.6 after selling Bellerin) followed by Alonso.

    1. Bellerin to Nyom (meaning Coleman, Nyom and Cedric for this week)
    2. Cedric to Nyom (meaning Coleman, Nyom and Bellerin for this week)
    3. Hold? But Arsenal would probably not have a CS whilst WBA might have one

    • I’d be tempted to Bellerin to Brunt this week.

    • Bellerin to Brunt

      • Thanks all. Would do that in an instant! Brooke, you mean I should go ahead w Brunt even if it will compromise my Alonso option for next week? (I can still have Luis so it’s not that bad)

        • Yeah and just get Luiz if you really want Chelsea defensive cover.

  6. Morning folks, in reply to Silvers question earlier, yes it is the 2nd round of the regulars cup this gw. Fixtures as follows.

  7. Captain Benteke anyone?

  8. Gents,

    Team for GW24 – good to go?

    See you on the other side!

  9. Daniels to Coleman for -4? Have Azpi, Walker and Nyom in playing 11. So Nyom will sit out.
    Also does Cech to Courtois for -4 makes sense?

    • Just play Azpi,Nyom,Walker and do the transfer next week.Cech to Courtous for -4 makes no sense.

  10. Who we putting armband on ??????????
