FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 4

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 4. We scored 49 points in GW3, a miserly 6 above the average and we saw a relatively minor jump in the rankings as a result. All in all it was a bit of a miserable old GW though. 19 of our points came from just three players at the back and even two of our benched rearguard scored more than any of our midfielders or forwards, Firmino excepted. Our midfield was consistent, if nothing else, with three points each. Lukaku blanked but that was the least of our worries, given his ownership. Kane coming in as a 4 point captain was the real kick in the teeth. All in all it seemed fairly consistent with what most other managers experienced though so we aren’t panicking and playing our wildcard just yet. Just. More on that later though… We come into GW4 with £0.9 in the bank and 1 free transfer to play with. Here’s our team as it looked at the end of last week…

And here’s how we looked ahead of our transfer meeting this week…

Transfer for GW4
The opening gambit in this weeks transfer discussions simply had a picture of the transfer page and the phrase “Painted ourselves into a corner then…” How apt when you look at that p*ss poor midfield! And how little we can actually do about it with just 1 free transfer and a paltry £0.9m in the bank. But hey, that’s what Alonso can do for you.

Small improvements were discussed, perhaps Brady in for Gross for example. Really, really small ‘improvements’. But that’s all you can discuss really unless major structural changes occur and that’s not going to happen without a wildcard realistically. Maybe that’s one for next week or even the week after then. Let’s see. As it stands we will be carrying 2 free transfers into next week as we decided that rather than making the said small changes we would ride it out this week, see what happens and reconvene with a pair in hand next week. Feel free to add your own puns to that last sentence.

Our Captain is … Romelu Lukaku
Kane and Firmino got a vote each but Lukaku came home with the spoils with three. Stoke away really can be a 50/50 fixture for any team on any given day. Given the relative difficulty of both other candidates fixtures though it is hardly surprising that Lukaku won as it simply feels like pushing against the most open door, out of a lot of stiff doors.

The team in full
And so this is how we line up ahead of GW4…

The team itself only really presented one main question this week which was Ince or Carroll. When asked to the committee the most persuasive argument cannot actually be repeated on here for fear of offending at least half of the population! But the premise was “Play Ince, that (person) owes us”. Yeah ok, stats should come into play here and we should present an argument for one or the other but sometimes you just have to pick one don’t you!

Davies being benched may raise an eyebrow but really he has the worst fixture out of our other defenders who aren’t called Alonso. The two who play have reasonably favourable home games, he has a tricky away one. Doesn’t matter what Alonso has, if you damage our midfield to that extent you’d better be ready to deliver 10 points each and every week!

    Hey everyone, this is my team with my wildcard in place. Thoughts on gabbs to wood and holding the 1m or give him one more chance?

      I’ve gotten bored of waiting for Gabbi and Soton to take advantage of their fixtures.

      They haven’t been looking very free-flowing/attacking and I’d be surprised if Gabbi keeps leading the line if they’re not scoring.

      If you did swap him to Woods, who would you bring in for Brady? Or would you double up on Burnley?

    Morning all,

    Been a long break.

    WC team reads as following (0 in the bank):


    Alonso Jones Mustafi Cedric

    Mane Pogba Brady

    Firm Kane Luky

    Eliott, Atsu, Caroll, Mbemba

    Seems like an overpriced defence at a glance but finding it hard to get value in any mids below 8m?
