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 FOR GAME-WEEK 33 *

    Thank you for your votes this week. As ever we totally appreciate the effort put in to vote with us.

    We have come to the transfer:

    Defoe -> C Benteke thanks to your votes.

    This brings us a DGW player which should help us nicely in the weeks ahead. Also that Crystal Palace appear to be a different beast of late.

    Here is how we line up then.

    • Hey, GP. Good move. Sorry I didn’t vote, but I would have suggested Benteke too. Setting up nicely for DGW34. Incidentally, when is the regular cut-off time for votes? Was leisuredly ambling around the site reading the posts and thinking I had plenty of time…

      • Qwk

        I usually check in for the last time about 8PM (UK) on a Friday. That’s when I sit down to organise the team with the other guys and get my own team in order for the weekend.

        Sorry you missed the vote. We’ll be opening next week’s sometime on Tuesday so check in then.

        Thanks.

        • Thanks, GP. My own fault, of course. All I needed to do was check the archived correspondence to see when you usually sort things out. Got to keep my wits about me over the next few days, as I’m off work and tend to lose track of which day of the week I’m on…

    Well hello 73 points! Much needed indeed. A rise to 663,982 in the overall rankings. Let’s finish this strongly!

    Thanks all

    Evening lads and lasses,
    Right then, so our wildcard is active as GP has said. This is the latest GP, Elle and myself have come up with on a very tight budget! We would love your suggestions on this and any ideas you may have!

    Thanks in advance.
