Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 28
Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 28. Hmmmm, well the score was ok and I guess that’s all that matters! In financial terms it would be called a “low quality beat” as 54 of our 69 points came from three players – namely Sadio Mane’s goal and assist vs Arsenal, Erik Pieters’ unexpected two clean sheets and Sergio Aguero’s triple captain score of 27. We felt let down by Kun to be honest, it could have been so much better, especially in the Sunderland match. All in all it was ok and a 69 is always welcome. Sadly the other 8 idiots were a complete shambles – Sterling didn’t even bother turning up for the 2nd half of the DGW, Ibra started the ball rolling with a missed penalty and no-one else scored more than two points. We did see a small green arrow, and we mean small as we climbed 1,094 places to 51,460. Let’s move on from a double game-week to a blank game-week!
Our transfers this week are: Sold Sterling, Aguero and Ibrahimovic and bought Sigurdsson, Lukaku and Llorente
The cull has begun! The blank game-week has been attacked, an eight point hit has been taken. The transfers were surprisingly agreed very easily by the committee (well, two of them were at least!) The sale of the trio makes sense – they all blank this week, City’s next three fixtures are vs Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea while Ibra has a little rest coming up. Gylfi speaks for himself, he has scored or assisted in each of his last six and faces Hull, Bournemouth and Boro in his next three. Lukaku is of course also in great form, will be a popular captain choice this week and plays West Brom and Hull, both at home in GW28 and 29. Llorente was a slightly harder sale – is he worth another 4pt hit? The vote decided yes, the fixtures are there as per Siggy and he is also in good form – let’s just hope he can continue that form and justify his inclusion. It was actually the least convinced member of the committee who produced the stats to justify Llorente – Hull have the 5th worst record over the past six matches for conceding shots in the box, with Bournemouth seventh.

Our captain this week is: Romelu Lukaku
It was a close vote between Big Rom and Sadio Mane with Lukaku winning 3-2. Having been overtaken by Kane in the race for the Golden Boot, we hope that the Everton striker uses Kane’s blank week to reclaim the top spot and make it five home matches in a row in which he scores! Mane is our vice captain.
