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?

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM TRANSFER VOTE FOR GAMEWEEK 22 *

    We have £2.2M in the bank and 1 free transfer to use should we choose to. We encourage you now to take a look at our squad above to this and let us know how you think we should use our transfer if so.

    We have narrowed the vote down by removing a lot of the ‘deadwood’ names after some advice taken on board so we hope you may notice some difference. We are at pains to remove too many as that is when the player you want isn’t there! We’ll monitor and act accordingly.

    Anyway, thank you for your support, numbers have dwindled in the voting in recent weeks so we would especially ask that you assist us with your thoughts to give a fairer reflection of the spectrum of views on this wonderful website of ours.

    Siggy out and Erik in.
    As to the too many names I agree it is a slog to do through them all, also when I try to transfer out of the Bloody Monkey I cannot without starting again on say Firefox.- sorry not a great IT man

        Voted. I appreciated the abbreviated shopping list, especially given the consensus in the group. The box would take care of other calls. My preference is the second-dump Stones for Chelsea/Azpi. Stones hasn’t been much value, and MC may be in freefall. Admittedly, Swansea is. But Siggy is still freekicks, pens, and goals/assists. AMFAS. Only Snodgrass seems to have more roles-no surprise they play for bottom-feeders.
        One other. I think Kane was a miss last week, and may be out of a straight trade now. I wonder if we can empower the executive to make late calls on game night when situations like Costa arise.

        • Hi KI

          Thanks for your vote first of all.

          The list will be abbreviated ahead of next week. That is on my list of things to do, get to it today hopefully.

          We made a late call last week to use our second free transfer to take out Costa for Giroud. Could have been Kane but que sera sera . . .

          Thanks for the feedback as always. :clap:

    * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM SELECTION VOTE FOR GAMEWEEK 22 *

    We have listened to your votes and for this week we have made two moves:

    Sold John Stones (hoorah!) and Gylfi Sigurdsson and we introduce Leighton Baines and Pedro to the squad. Are you happy with those?

    Now it is time to fix up or starting line-up and with the news direct from Wenger that Olivier Giroud is fit for the weekend please bear this in mind.

    Please follow this link:

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6KTSTML

    and vote for our starting line-up and captain. Click on the four players who you would place on our bench and then in the second part, one player as captain for the week.

    Our squad will be attached below and we would ove as many votes as we can possible get. It will take you less than 30 seconds to complete.

    Thanks to you all.
