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 SELECTION FOR GAME-WEEK 23 *

    Good day everyone.

    We have a couple of questions for you. We need to know how best we should line up our team ahead of tomorrow’s deadline. We have saved our transfer so we go with the same squad. We also need a captain from it.

    Please follow this link and select FOUR players to place on our substitutes bench and then pick ONE player to represent us as captain for double points.

  11. * FF247 COMMUNITY TEAM TRANSFER VOTE FOR GAME-WEEK 26 *

    Hi everyone,

    A reminder that our GW26 voting is open. :)

    A decision has been taken to yet further simplify our voting processes by asking you guys to vote only for transfers/chips etc. and to allow this vote to remain open for longer, your management team will select the starting eleven each Friday/Saturday for the foreseeable future. We will (try to) do our best by you.

    So here we are. Game-week 26 then! We have two free transfers, no cash in the bank and both Cech and Ibrahimovic on blank weeks. Let’s see what you guys think …

    Please vote here after having inspected our squad (above):

    Thank you for your support. Let’s get as many votes as we can please.
