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!

    Team Looks good!
    Im looking for some advice, not sure if Willian is a sure starter now with hazard on the horizon.
    I was debating switching Willian to Fabregas but im not sure hes a certain starter either.
    Ive got 2 ft and 0.0m ITB, so thinking about taking a Punt on Mooy for Willian and using my other free transfer for Jesus to Morata.

      Seems sensible enough. I’m hopeful Willian plays this week but that’ll be such a question mark each week that it’s probably worth just ridding yourself while you can. Does all that leave enough to fix Ince next week if he continues to blank? Maybe up to Mikhi or someone?

    Nice side. It’s hard to have to Alonso in the team …. and Kaku Kane Firmino Pogba and DDG without the rest being a bit weak.

    I got a similar set up. Kane Kaku Salah Micky T and DDG . It’s a struggle to get Alonso in

    Thoughts what to do here? I have done Pogba in for KDB. I have one free transfer and 1.7 in the bank. I’m thinking Salah and Cork/RLC in for Ince and Ritchie or other move could be Salah and Firmino in for Jesus and Ince.

    Hi all,
    Been on my wildcard this week and really can’t decide whether to go with Kane or Lukaku.
    I could go with both as I have done from the start but my rank suggests I need to change.
    Here are my two drafts one with Kane and the other Lukaku.
    Any thoughts are much appreciated :)
