Could Premier League-bound Joao Palhinha be a Fantasy Football Success Next Season?

Could Premier League-bound Joao Palhinha be a Fantasy Football Success Next Season? Many Portuguese stars have graced the Premier League over the last decade and a number of them have proved hugely profitable for FPL managers. The likes of Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves have all accrued plenty of points in recent years, and one of their fellow countrymen looks destined to play in the English top-flight next season. Joao Palhinha is certainly a player to keep an eye on, and although defensive midfielders aren’t necessarily the most glamorous option when it comes to selecting your fantasy team, the 24-year old’s ball-winning abilities could help managers potentially rack up the clean sheet points throughout 2021. The on-loan Sporting star has proved very effective ...[Read More]

Will Leeds United rollercoaster ride end of a high?

Will Leeds United rollercoaster ride end of a high? It’s been 10 long seasons for Leeds United in the second-tier of English football, but even longer when you look back at the glory days of the Premier League. Their best season in the top flight came in 1999-2000, when the Whites finished third and ultimately, qualified for Champions League football. While this season’s Championship may have taken a short hiatus, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Leeds are often there or there-abouts when it comes to promotion football bets. Just last campaign, the promised land looked likely, and for long periods, they topped the table. Most notably, at the turn of the year, the Whites remained in pole-position for eight games, but a four-point margin at the top does not give enough room for error and two...[Read More]

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Moise Kean and Nicolas Pepe

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Moise Kean and Nicolas Pepe If my last player analysis article was a cautionary tale then this is more of an upbeat and promising one with talk of potential, proven stats, potential, excitement, potential, missing links, potential, Romelu Lukaku, potential and of course Mario Balotelli. Did we mention potential? Let’s go take a look at two genuinely enticing editions to our FPL landscape… Moise Kean* Everton FPL price: £TBCm (probably £7-8m?) Position: Forward One can only assume that some bright spark at Everton finally googled the words ‘centre forward’. Quite how they’ve managed to stay afloat in the Premier League without one since Lukaku left two seasons ago is anybody’s guess. Quite how they’ve m...[Read More]

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Che Adams and Joelinton

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Che Adams and Joelinton A tale of two £6m strikers. A tale of red cards, mediocre statistics, wishful thinking, youthful promise, Mike Ashley, Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes (yes!), anti-Moneyball, stating the bleeding obvious, dodgy hamstrings, James Beattie (yes!) and smoke & mirrors. A more positive intro you’d be hard pressed to find… and you’re probably thinking you know where this one is going already. And you’d probably be right to be fair. But don’t judge just yet, let’s go see if we can find some positives amongst what ostensibly appears to be a roasting. Joelinton Newcastle United FPL price: £6.0m It’s not often a beleaguered Newcastle United fan wakes up to a headline of ‘Toon bre...[Read More]

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Fornals, Haller and Jay Rodriguez

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Fornals, Haller and Jay Rodriguez Why did I pick these three then? I ask myself as I write an intro I wasn’t expecting to have to write. Well in complete fairness, I don’t know, I looked at the list and picked these three so I’d given myself a task to research and I got on with it. The result is that I now have all three in my latest draft – I can convince myself if no one else. FPL needs to begin soon as I’m on draft 6,489,432. Join me as I write about a returning homeboy and two new boys down Stratford way. Jay Rodriguez Burnley FPL price: 6.0mln Age: 29 FPL Position: Striker Previous FPL statistics: 2017/18: 7 Goals, 1 assist (109 points) 2016/17: 5 Goals, 2 assists (73 points) 2013/14: 15 Goals, 3 assists (152...[Read More]

Promoted Teams Analysis: Aston Villa

Welcome to Promoted Teams Analysis: Aston Villa. There aren’t many things you can be sure on in this world – especially at the moment when you look at politics – but one of the few things you can rely on is that the one and only Aston Villa fan in the FF247 crew just had to write the appraisal on the club’s chances this season, as they achieved promotion the hard way. From watching the gradual decline of the claret and blues’ fortunes – both on and off the pitch – to hiding behind the cushion as they scraped past West Brom and Derby County in the play offs, I have seen a lot. You can be sure of an honest view, with the rose tinted spectacles still away with the 1996 Coca Cola Cup final cap I got when I was 10. Last season was a rollercoaster ride as Steve Bruce, now the Newcastle manager, ...[Read More]

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Wan-Bissaka, Ayoze Perez and Ndombele

New Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2019/20 – Wan-Bissaka, Ayoze Perez and Ndombele It’s been a relatively quiet summer here at FF247, tempered somewhat in recent weeks by the unexpected early release of the FPL game. As the site starts to awaken from its slumber with a slew of not too dissimilar RMT’s (we can all sink or swim together yeah?) its time for us to start looking at new signings. First up we have two players you’ll be familiar with who have now moved on to pastures new, and finally a look at a shiny new player, who whilst he may not be considered as an FPL asset (just yet), his recruitment may pay dividends for his team-mates in both the real world and the FPL one. So which, if any, should be in your GW1 squad and who should we keep at arms length? Read on for my two pen...[Read More]
