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?

    Thank you for your participation in our transfer vote. We have sold Aguero and (rather unsurprisingly but sensibly) bought Harry Kane to line up alongside Diego Costa and Charlie Austin.

    We now need you to vote in our team selection please.

    Please select our FOUR substitutes and captain by voting for each in just a few clicks here:

    My general thanks to the FPL247 community for their almost instantaneous reports on injuries and, more importantly, discussion of alternatives to deal with these situations. This is especially true for the late ones, like Austin. I’ve learned to get a good night’s rest, and ponder my options. The subconscious is a wonderful thing.
    Mind, the dicey decisions are all mine. Even Mito may get an occasional laugh.

    Here is our team for this week as voted for by your good selves. Thank you very much for your support.

    We’re due a week of green arrows surely? :)

    Good luck to you all.

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM VOTE *

    As you know we have two gameweeks in quick succession which make voting a bit difficult this week so the management will pick the team but we have Charlie Austin still. We should now sell him.

    Please vote below by leaving an answer as to who you would replace him with.

    I’ve attached the top points scorers so far. We have £10.2M and already have Harry Kane and Diego Costa.

    One word answers are fine, no justification needed.

    Thanks guys.

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM GAME-WEEK 16 TEAM *

    Here it is, our team for this week. Deadline is very soon!

    But we have listened to the majority and brought in JAMIE VARDY for the stricken CHARLIE AUSTIN.

    You can blame management if HARRY KANE turns out to be the wrong captain choice. :)

    Best of luck to you all in the midweek action.

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM GAME-WEEK 17 *

    We’ve decided to forego the transfer this week due to the quick turnaround between Game-weeks 16 and 17.

    We will have two free transfers for next weekend.

    Attached is our team for this week. Captainship picked by management (again, blame us :) )

    Good luck everyone!

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM GW17 UPDATE *

    2016 is petering out poorly for us people.

    Another poor showing of 31 points compounded by two big point scorers on our bench.

    Overall rank is now 1,266,537.

    Come on Christmas fixtures, be good to us as we’ve been good boys and girls this year.

    Vote opening later.

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM VOTE FOR GAME-WEEK 18 (BOXING DAY) *

    We need to get our team set up for before the Christmas break as, as is always the case on these great isles, we have a full card of action on Boxing Day and that means a Community Team to organise.

    We have TWO free transfers and £0.6M in the bank and problems with Costa and Vardy (appeal pending). But we really need to get some thoughts in early for our transfers so we ask you to look at the bigger picture here and play devil’s advocate a bit. We’ll keep this vote open until late on Thursday.

    Please see our squad, which will be attached to follow, and let us know your thoughts please.

    Evening all,

    Obviously we know now about Vardy so i imagine you’ll be voting for him to leave?
