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?

    Morning everyone,

    International break is over and now we turn our attentions back to FPL matters, (if some ever actually looked away)

    In case you missed it or can’t remember, the Community Team is on an active wildcard therefore this week’s vote is a simple one.

    Pick FIFTEEN players as if it were your own wildcard.

    Please ensure you click DONE once you have finished to ensure your vote is registered.

    Of course we won’t be able to afford all the big names so if you can tailor your answer to include a couple of bargain picks that would be appreciated. This hopefully gives us a broad spectrum to look at when we draw together the results.

    We hope this will be a fun vote for you all and encourage as many of you to take part as possible.

    Thanks guys

    Here it is then …

    The wildcard squad as voted for by you.

    The management have set the team line-up for today so if the bench goes wrong or Aguero bombs as captain, blame us :)
    Thanks for all your support.
