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?

    Good evening guys, as u can see my team, I am confused over these 2 options:

    1. transfer out baines or brunt
    2. play AOA and bench baines and brunt

    Thank you for your participation this week in the vote. You decided that Ryan Bertrand should be brought in and to make this happen we lost Chris Brunt and Joe Allen. Marten de Roon is the makeweight.

    We have selected Diego Costa as captain.

    Your management team have pulled tank this week and used both transfers. (No vote due to the short time period between deadlines)

    We have sold Costa and Sterling and bought Aguero and Zaha.

    We line up thus:

    What are your thoughts?

    Keep them clean ;)

    Fine. The best moves available. Well considered. Good bench order, too. I’d be looking to get Alli/Eriksen/Hazard on a midfield upgrade next along, perhaps, with a downgrade (for a hit?) on Defoe. How much cash do we have left? Go, team.

    An above average score but looking at some of the scores of our members, rather light but it could have been much worse.

    62 points and a green arrow to take us to 1,001,200 overall.

    We’ll open this week’s transfer vote later.

    It’s back on you guys this week after the team was managed the last two weeks by management due to the midweek fixtures which don’t allow us time to set votes up.

    Over to you . . .
