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.

  1. How does this team look?

    • upgrade wilson, browning, holdjberg and change sterling

    • You ain’t seriously bringing in Caballero and Hazard for a minus eight this week, haven’t we also had the never take a hit on a GK conversation before as well? Play Jakupovic before hitting on a GK.

      • I am starting Jaku and bringing City players is not a good move

      • It’s for the funds I’m very happy with City’s defence right now.

        • Is your ranking happy though? Waxys? :p

          Show us your ranking. Hehe. Don’t want to be an ass, but having City defense goes against all logic. Unless it’s the Maldini era. With legbreaker Nigel de Jong. :)

    • For this game week? Pretty shit mate, you have 4 players so if those are your moves I think you need to rethink them asap.

      If you want to create the prettiest FPL team then I salute your attention to all things aesthetic. If however you want to be successful in FPL then you need to start thinking less about a team that looks good in Championship manager and more about getting a squad who can gain you real points in FPL.
      I may sound like a bit of a duck with the above but I say it with good intentions, people treat your posts as a bit of a joke, but you’re here and you’re asking for opinions so here’s one to consider.
      I don’t know who you’re moving out but if you’re making 3 transfers this week, then for the love of god please make them players who at least have a game!

      • Excuse my iPhone auto correcting the shit out of my post but I’m sure you get my intentions!!

        • To kick the shit out of him? Yeah I think we got it loud and clear :D Honestly don’t know why people bother responding. I do occasionally but it’s just to tickle his tummy. He never gets it though :)

        • Very funny initt I’m sure you have everyone roaring in laughter.

      • No no not for this week I always plan long term. City have been good defensively haven’t conceded for a while.

      • I’ve had amazing fantasy success. These transfers aren’t for this week of course but for the long term.

        • Waxys, understand that you need to raise $ but are there other ways to do it? The rest make complete sense that it’s pointless to take hits when they aren’t going to score you points now.

          I know City looks good on paper defensively but if you’ve caught any of their recent games, their defending is still horrendous and they look like conceding every time they get counter attacked – reconsider Caballero

        • It’s only a -2 hit if you think about it to bring in hazard. Cabarello actually has very good returns check out his points. City have really turned things around . I suppose another option is Grant or Mignolet to raise funds. And yes there’s other ways but i don’t see too much benefit over having an expensive goalie like de gea.

        • What’s your original team and are you doing these moves to fund Mane? Like I mentioned, yes Caba has good returns recently but their defence is really shaky. If $ is the issue, you should even go Robles before City for more solid defensive cover for the same price

          And -2 if you bring in Hazard..? Sorry but I don’t follow because isn’t he not playing this week?

        • My team is set for this week I bought in Mane. This pic I showed is my plan for the following fixtures sorry if I didn’t make that very clear. Next week I have a free transfer so it’s only a -4 hit to bring in caballero and Hazard in exchange for de gea and Walcott who has given me dismal returns.

  2. Jaku Heaton
    Alonso Brunt Pieters Chambers Amat
    Mane Alli Siggy Sterling King
    Costa Kun Diomande.

    1 FT 0.2 in the bank. Only have 5 players for this week ignoring Amat. What transfers should I make?

    • GW 28: Sterling to Coutinho, using money raised by Kun to Llorente/Carroll
      GW 29: King to 4.5 MF, Diomande to Kane

      • What about Luk for Kun but I like your other recommendations

        • Yup that works also I guess but going forward, I’d think that you need Kane in there and I don’t see how you can make that happen if you decide to go with LKK

  3. Thinking of a -8 for Philips to Coutinho and Kun to Llorente/Carroll. Extra funds would be used to bring in Alonso the following. Sound?

    • I like the sound of that Neo.

  4. I’ve got 12.7 ITB going in to GW29!! :) For the first time ever I’m understanding the term ‘retail therapy’.

  5. Evening all…
    Decisions decisions decisions..

    So Iv got llorente in for kun..
    What others do you reckon I should do?

    – Cortiniho for phillips/sterling
    – maybe a defender too

    Thinking a -8 hit might be needed

    • sterling philips out coutinho king in

    • How have you managed over recent weeks with that defence ? Holgate to Coleman,Phillips to Lanzini or Coutinho and i’d take a one week punt on Defoe to Carrol then swap him to Kane next week.

      • id rather take hits on attackers. you can bring in walker for amat next week.

        • But if he brings in Coleman this week,for what is in effect -2 he has a good chance of a cs and attacking returns,it sorts his defensive problem out and he can use his ft next week to bring kane in.

        • Yep the defence is pretty shocking…

          Iv gone for sterling & phillips out
          Lanzini & corts in

          Anyone considering mane or Cortiniho as Cap…or is it a no brainer with lukaku? ?

      • Aye, a playing defender is needed as if it’s avoided you’ll still need one next week so now’s a good time to bring one in, I’d actually stick with only one hit though as if Philips is a no show again next week Davies won’t be a long term solution as he’s playing fairly deep now, I’d save the bulk of the cash saved for bringing Sanchez back in over a forward now as you’ll never get him for less than the 11.5 that he’s at and with Arsenal still having 2 DGW’s to go he’ll no doubt be essential again.

        • Sanchez is risky he’s had a falling out and he’s been nechdned twice now for a good while

        • He only got ‘nechdned’ once, against Liverpool, it won’t happen again, the fallout was too big.

        • Surely the bigger risk is going without him, he’s still one of the best fantasy (Probably the best) fantasy asset going.

        • Hey Waxys, you need a keeper in MLS. Strange, wax keeps coming up.

          BTW, you wouldn’t know the protocol on waxing, would you?

        • What happened on MLS?

        • Eh this is around the time Arsenals season goes to shit. when his own teammates need to be refrained from fighting him I doubt we’ll see the same returns he offered at the start of the season.

  6. Hi guys, Lansing or King for the next three game weeks as 4th mid?

  7. Who to choose as captain….

    Tough choice…
