Fantasy Football The FF247 Community Team – We go again

It was around this time twelve months ago that another team joined the 3 million-strong throng of Fantasy Football Teams vying for the crown of overall world champion. Except in this case it would be “champions” as this team was a little different. You were in it. And you. You, too. I was as well. The FF247 Community Team (founded 2015) was born, and indeed borne out of a curiosity of a few regulars who wondered if we could have a fantasy team representing all you good good people. Let’s embrace what we did last year, with an overall respectable final rank of 100,193 and see if we can improve on that the second time around.

For those new to this concept, your management team of myself, elleffcee and NZ Alex will guide you via comments on our dedicated article which sits on the tab at the top of the FF247 homepage. These comments will advise you when we are looking for your interaction, namely to let us know how you think we should manage the Community Team. Once our original squad has been selected (more of that soon), we need you to advise us how many transfers we should make, who should be transferred out, in and how we should line up for the forthcoming gameweek and also who will wear our captain’s armband for double points.

All our voting is based on a first past the post system – most votes wins. Simple.

The initial squad selection last season was a little laborious so we have decided to streamline this for this season. We will soon open voting where we will ask you to vote for your desired players by each position (hopefully getting a nice mixture of top-end and budget players . . . . or not?) and then the management team will construct the squad based upon your most popular two or three players per position and then by budget as we work our way through the positions.

The management team have our own individual teams so we are not one bit interested in manipulating the Community Team to turn it in to some second team of ours. You will get what you vote for.

We received some positive feedback on this venture last year so we feel we owe it to you all to have another go and we just hope you support us once more.

To the 2016/17 season then. Shall we?

  1. * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM DGW37 – THE WILDCARD SELECTION *

    Thank you for those taking the time to contact us with suggestions for our wildcard side.

    Due to some technical issues at my end, I can’t upload the picture of the team so it is as follows:

    CABALLERO
    YOSHIDA GABRIEL STEPHENS
    KING HAZARD SANCHEZ (C) ERIKSEN
    JESUS GABBIADINI VARDY

    BENCH: PICKFORD/BLIND/HOLGATE/NDIDI

    Good luck to you all this week (well, soon really!) :D

  2. Afternoon folks, the management have taken over the dealings for gw37, as there was only a short time between gw36 and gw37. Therefore there won’t be a vote for gw37. We had 1ft so we decided to be like Wenger and drop Gabriel and bring in Holding, whom we hope will start both brilliant fixtures against Stoke and Sunderland. We have also activated the bench boost chip. The 1ft has also left us with 0.8 itb and we are itching to spend it, so there maybe 1 more transfer before deadline, we are still talking about this at the moment.
    The picture below is as it stands at the moment.
    Cheers,
    GP/NZ/ELLE.

  3. Evening folks, we didn’t make a 2nd transfer for the Community team, so the squad is as was above. We have played the bench boost chip with Alexi as our captain and Vardy as our VC just incase Sanchez doesn’t play in either of Arsenals 2 games.
    Cheers, GP/NZ/ELLE

  4. * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM FOR GAME-WEEK 38 *

    Your final Community Team for this season. Unfortunately we’ve not been able to vote the last couple of weeks due to the timescales between games finishing and the next game-week starting.

    Your management team have decided to use a -4 today to bring in Kane and Zaha for Hazard and Gabbiadini.

    We are also using our AOA chip.

    Thank you.
