Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2019-20

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2019-20 Guess who’s back, back again…. With the fpl season getting closer and closer to starting, it is of course time for Bore Off to also kickoff. I have gathered the three originals, as is tradition for each first edition of the new season. As always a new season brings new hope. Hopefully this article helps a little, but not too much. Looking back through the first Bore Off from last season, I noticed that the Amigos had many things right. All 3 had Salah as the first person in their team sheet, they were all for the LFC double up in midfield with Mane, which would have worked out well for any manager who did. Cookie and Kop were talking about a back four and in Cookie’s case he was talking up a 5 back. Cookie was ahea...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! The Glass Is Half Empty…

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Having heard from the positive bunch, we now move onto the ones who are not so much, which should be fun… To be fair, we’ve been massively judgemental and quick to conclude based on a one line response. We shall let you judge for yourselves whether we were right or not… #wewere 😉 Welcome to all, from the Glass is half empty club….

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! GW32; A Glass Half Full…

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Usually when we ask our writing team to come forth for an International Break GABO we see tumbleweeds in abundance, and little sign of actual writers. This time however, for whatever reason, they were literally scrambling over each other to get involved. So much so that we have no less than two episodes of GABO to bring you in the break this time. We’ve decided to split them based upon perceived personality traits; Glass Half Full & Glass Half Empty. We say perceived personality traits… it was actually based solely on their original answers on WhatsApp to our request for entrants. Funnily enough, it was unerringly accurate. First up then we have AT, Swirly and Rosco. AT and Swirly’s answers were very simi...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Welcome to a special edition of Bore Off! Usually we only run these during the International breaks, but this time we decided to throw one in since we had a few extra days between GW’s. You will notice a slightly different format as there are nowhere near as many questions and we have asked our guys to expand a bit more than usual on the six they did get. This GABO is focused on the blank and double game-weeks to come. Obviously, we can only talk so much without knowing what teams will actually be a part of the actual doubles and blanks and as we see the FA Cup start to dwindle down teams we will address what players/teams and possible strategies you should be considering, but that will come in due time. Now for a quick intro ...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Whilst we all hate International Breaks to disrupt our FPL flow they are at least good for one thing and that’s an opportunity to put some of our favourite FPL managers on the spot and ask them a few pertinent questions. This week though we’ve decided to give them a break and have instead drafted in some others… 😉 First up is everybody’s favourite professional Geordie. Long gone are the days of steel workers and miners filling the terraces of Newcastle, your modern day Toon hero is a bit of a lush who drinks Prosecco most nights and takes showers with his dogs, apparently! Except of course on a Sunday, on the tipple front anyway, no idea about his pet shower schedule! Guinness or Newcastle Brown you ask...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 International break time can only mean one thing, it is ‘Bore off’ time. The old guard is back in place for this one. Thanks to Cookie, Init and Kop for once again jumping on here and providing some answers to some of the questions that many have on their mind and some questions that apparently only I would have on my mind. What are the fellas thinking about Kun’s minutes, Salah’s form and Giroud’s looks all that and much more… Ok, let’s get it on!

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 International break time can only mean one thing, it is ‘Bore off’ time. This time around we have brought some fresh faces in while still keeping one from the old guard. Smash makes his second appearance on GABO, you will usually find him on Team News covering pressers where he is always fighting with Wolves & Watford and misspelling Doucouré, much to Frenchie’s delight. Kralin makes his debut. I haven’t crossed paths often with Kralin on the boards so I asked someone to describe him for me and this is what he told me. “18th century gentleman. Puts on a full 3 piece suit and top hat before siting down to comment on the site. Probably has a butler to type his words out for him.” Kop is b...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2018-19 Oh yeah, with FPL back that also means ‘Bore off’ returns. I have went back to that old well and gathered the 3 amigos up for you to get their thoughts on some of the questions that we all want answered as the season draws closer. For those that don’t know them or don’t know them well, let me introduce you to them. Init is one of our site owners, he enjoys being a disciplinarian, hates typos and those with a lack of attention to detail. He also would prefer to not take walks on the beach and is not fond of puppies. Other than that, he is a great guy. Cookie is also a site owner. He lives in Monaco, enjoys laying on the beach and taking pictures while he drinks his wine. He doesn’t like to hear abo...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2 Part two of our GABO series sees three more of our writing team come to the party and attempt to tackle the same questions that Mito, Init and Kop answered. Again, they need little introduction as all three are very well known to you all as they are always seen on site commenting, helping or advising. Or recommending Dusan Tadic or Aaron Mooy. Leading the pack is Gallant Pioneer. GP, as he is more commonly known to us is having the season of his life and is set fair for his best ever FPL ranking. Yet he is always willing to help others and write when called upon. Oh. And he loves Dusan Tadic. Rosco is one of our resident Geordies but is most loved for his gravatar of Flash from Dukes of Hazard. He’s a great lad, offers ...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 1

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 1 As you should all be aware we are now entering crunch time for the season. The DGWs are on the horizon and a Blank GW is even closer still. In addition to Cezary’s superb article on how to negotiate GW31, we have again turned to some FPL ‘experts’ as to what plans they are making for GW31 and also some other more general FPL topics. And of course we finish in a more light-hearted fashion as we allow our panel to express their views on some easy targets! Our article is split into two groups. In this episode we have the old codgers – three people who helped to found FF247 and play an active day-to-day role in ensuring the site is what it is. You know them all well and they should need little introduction. However, that wo...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Brutal Honesty

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Brutal Honesty BRUTAL. HONESTY. We are past the half way stage, and have a bit of of a break now, so we thought it pertinent to check back in with a few old hands to see how their seasons are going and what their thoughts are on both the fare so far and how they think things will pan out ahead. Given the title, we have chosen them carefully – In trap No.1 is Mr Brutal himself. Mito. It’s practically his middle name. If anyone ever needs a ‘pick me up’ during a particularly dire GW then be sure to follow us on twitter… Mito will be on hand to drive that stake right the way through. And then twist it. In trap No.2 is Mr Honesty. You get what you see with Cookie. He’s been there, seen it and do...[Read More]

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2

Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fantasy Premier League 2017-18 Part 2 The International break is here and it is of course time for yet another edition of Bore Off! As ever during the international break we take the time to catch up with some of our site regulars, ask them how their seasons are going and get their thoughts on some key issues that we all want answers to. And then of course ask them some stupid questions that we all really don’t want answers to but are too intrigued to look away. We have already caught up with 3 of them but such was the clamour to be involved this week we have a bonus ‘part 2’. And so we are delighted to be joined by Serendipity, Milburn and Footy Fantastic (Guy) for part 2.     Thanks for reading Grab, Avoid or Bore Off! – Fanta...[Read More]
