Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 3

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 3 “The good news, we shouldn’t see a red arrow until the New Year.” Well said FF247, well said. Why do we bring that remark up? Well, doing worse was actually possible. That’s right we managed a red arrow after scoring a shocking 19 points this week. We are now only 40K spots away from the magical 3 million overall position. As we now stand in 2,960,600. The good news is that we shouldn’t see a red arrow until the New Year…or next week, whatever comes first. Alright now let’s have a quick rundown of the fantastic XI who underwhelmed us. In goal we went with no one. Oh well, at least our keeper didn’t disappoint us. Last week we decided to save the transfer and with Courtois being red carded the previous g...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 2

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 2 Interesting start to say the least. The FF247 team did not fail our members…well maybe just a little, well one in particular. If you would have told us that we were going to score 27 points, we probably would have asked on which day. Apparently FPL still has a sense of humour though and that was our grand total for the GW. Those 27 gave us a ranking of 2,155,382 which is good news and bad news at the same time. As always the bad news first, we have a long way to climb to beat last season’s rank. The good news, we shouldn’t see a red arrow until the New Year. Without further ado, let’s give you a quick rundown on who helped put us in this predicament before we talk about our plans for the coming GW. In goal we went with the eve...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Game-week 1

Fantasy Football 247 Team – Fantasy Premier League 2015/16 FF247 has finalised its selection for its squad in this our second season. Coming off a strong showing last season with a final ranking of 5921, we hope that we can go a bit better this time as we had a strong season and looked good for a top 1k finish for so long but just ran out of gas at the end! After seeing how our discussions went last season over transfers and team selection we were naturally more prepared. It was smooth as heck…well, more like long as heck. We started discussions several days ago and only came to a conclusion after the knives came out. Let’s just say the one with the biggest knife seemed more logical to the rest of the group. So with the season upon us, have a gander at the official FF247 ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 38

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 38 Another week and another red arrow. That’s 4 on the bounce and even Newcastle are starting to feel sorry for us. We dropped 396 spots to 5328 in the overall rankings. Not a dramatic drop, but still the trickle slowly down is really p*ssing us off. Well let us have a quick look at the magical 11 that caused our sorrow before we move on to our plans for GW38. In goal we had the trusty David Ospina. A nice showing by our keeper with a slick double digit haul. A couple of ‘clean sheet saving’ saves versus Sunderland had us sweating it out a bit, but in the end he came through unscathed. Our transfer for Wasadinho in for Alberto Moreno worked out perfectly. As our Fox defending the box delivered a clean sheet for us. Basically we sold a ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 36

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 36 Continuing our downward trend, probably as further punishment for having invested in Liverpool the previous GW… we managed to drop 1741 spots and landed in 4623th place. You sorta know is not going to be your week when you have a 17 point keeper sitting on the bench. We hate to do this, but let’s quickly go over how our team performed or didn’t perform in GW35 before we discuss our transfer plans for the upcoming week. Damn you Ospina! You just can’t trust a Colombian to deliver…well at least not in this realm of work. If leaving our huge score (Myhill) on the bench wasn’t enough, we had a poor showing from our back line to compound things. Clyne only brought in one point and PvA who came in off the bench for Moren...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 35

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 35 Lovely DGW! You know sometimes there comes a time to quit a cult, which is just another way of saying that we wish we hadn’t been caught idolizing a Liver bird. Never trust Liverpool, never trust Liverpool, never… you get the drift, this was our Gerrard slip. Lucky to stay inside the top 3K, we dropped to 2882nd place. Now here comes the sign from a higher power that we should not trust the Scousers. We dropped 666 places! We read the sign loud and clear, sell everything wearing red, Sterling, Moreno, Henderson and Kop. But before we sell everything, let us run a quick review of the GW pain we went through. As expected (somewhat) Ospina delivered a clean sheet for us. You might find it surprising to hear us say that, but CFC haven’t...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 32

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 32 Well we sure know how to kill momentum in a hurry. A slow methodical climb back inside the top 2k was followed by a swift kick in the gut and a drop back outside of it. We now reside in 2810th place after a drop of 1070 spots and are looking shakier than Pelligrini’s job. Fortunately we are highly qualified in the art of denial so we feel our job is safe. Now let’s give a quick rundown of how our team fell apart worse than City’s title hopes. In Pulis we trust! Right until he allowed known wimpy road pushovers stick 4 in the back of the net. Splendid that Myhill transfer has turned out to be so far. Luckily though, we had Terry and surely a Stamford Bridge clean sheet was on the cards. We mean, the only chance Stoke had of scoring w...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 37

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 37 Falling faster than a girl’s panties at the sight of Giroud, we continued our downward trend. Although the drop wasn’t major, it still hurts. 309 spots was the fall this time and it landed us in 4932th place. One would think that when your captain scores 46 points, dropping in the standings shouldn’t be a concern, but low and behold we managed it. Well let us get on with it with a quick review of the team in GW36 before we discuss our transfer plans. Damn you goal line technology! Ospina and us were denied a clean sheet when a dumb little watch told the referee the ball went in. Sometimes progress is not good. Moving on we see McShane our new recruit decided to partake only 56 minutes in his game, wonderful. Luckily the rest of our ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 34

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 34 Another small climb in the overall has put us a bit closer to being inside the top 2k. After climbing another 335 spots we now sit in 2216. A spot that we are very happy with, but we have dreams of a higher finish. So this is no time to unbutton our pants and play around. There is no room for complacency in the final stretch and with doubles on the horizon we hope we can take full advantage. But as always, before we tell you of our plans for the upcoming gameweek, let us quickly review our performance in GW33. Finally Pulis, finally! Myhill in goal came through for us with a very solid 8 points. Our faith is now restored, well sort of, once you check the Baggies schedule over the last 5 games one might feel it is time to cut and run. Moving along to ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 33

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 33 After a slip in the standings last week, we were able to straighten up a bit and managed our 4th green arrow in the last 5 gameweeks. Our score of 54 helped us climb 259 spots into 2551 in the overall. It wasn’t a major gain, but we will take it. So before we go into our plans for the dreaded blank-ish GW33, let us run through the week that was. In Pulis we trust!? Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. After another shocking defensive performance from the Baggies and 7 point keeper Ospina on our bench, there is plenty of disappointment to go around. Luckily though our Saints defenders got a clean sheet. Alderweireld raked in 9 points and Clyne got benched. FFS!! Oh well, at least old favourite PvA came in with the auto sub and g...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 31

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 31 Our slow methodical climb back into the top 1K continues. With our third straight green arrow on the bounce, we managed to move into 1740th place in the overall. This was a jump of 782 spots for us after a score of 91 for the week. Nice little move there, now let’s have a quick review on how it is it came about before we move onto our team for double game-week 31. In goal once again we went with Ospina, not like we had much of a choice with Foster injured. Frustratingly though Arsenal conceded once again, making that 4 out of the last 6 where they gave up just one goal. In our backline we went with the ever trustworthy Terry. With Chelsea visiting Hull this looked like an easy opportunity for some clean sheet points. Frustratingly though Chelse...[Read More]

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 30

Fantasy Football FF247 Team Gameweek 30 Another green arrow!! How did we manage it you may ask? Basically by doing nothing and watching the GW implode on itself. In one of the FPL weeks to forget, we managed to fly up the overall. Well maybe not so much fly as crawl up the standings. 32 miserable spots was what we managed, but hey, that is certainly better than dropping. So we went from 2554 to 2522. But perhaps better than the green arrow, was the fact that we managed to save a transfer heading into GW30. So let’s give a quick recount of where our team went on vacation in GW29. In goal we went with David Ospina. Luckily for us the Colombian was one of the few that was able to rake in a bit of points. Originally we had Foster in there, but after some debate we opted for Ospina. Foste...[Read More]
