FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW3

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW3 Our game-week was ultimately personified by our last minute decision to change our captain from Aguero to Salah. Sure, Salah did ok, scoring 9pts on Monday night but once Kun had posted his 20pter we were relatively doomed. At least we owned Kun, plenty didn’t. We still scored ok, 74pts vs an average of 60 and it is only GW2. No need to panic, but I think we have learnt our lesson re JamieJacksongate! Richarlison, Mendy and Robertson were again superstars, while Shaw contributed an assist despite United’s horror show at Brighton. The rest of our motley crew were useless – Patricio, Eriksen, Cairney, King and Firmino should all be looking over their shoulders as our moody committee meets with two free transfers burning a hole in its pocket. Last WeekR...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW2 Well, well, well – 82 points scored in GW1 with 37 of those points coming from our 3 playing defenders. Robertson, Shaw and Mendy all performed heroically with bonus points flying all over the place! Richarlison’s brace was also most welcome while Salah chipped in with his customary goal. Firmino provided an assist but with Liverpool scoring four we may have expected more. The rest of our number were 2pt bums, while like many other managers, we left Wan-Bissaka’s 12 points on the bench. Overall we are delighted with the start, overall rank means nothing at this stage. Last Week’s Result What have we done this week? Like many of you we have decided to sit on our hands this week and roll our transfer over. To be honest this was always the plan and i...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW1 We’re back! Last season was something of a disappointment as we finished with our lowest rank since we first introduced the site team back in 2014/15. We don’t set ourselves any goals at the beginning of each season but at the very least we want to beat last season’s final rank. Hang on, is that a goal?! Just like the rest of you we’ve spent five minutes hours agonising over who to include in our GW1 squad and we’re finally there. Are we happy? Ask us that around 6pm on Sunday evening! Below we have outlined some of our thought process when picking our squad. Hopefully it makes sense! Goalkeepers When we posted our very provisional squad a couple of weeks ago we had two £4.5m keepers. This then became a premium and a £4.0m option before reverting to two...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Like most of you who are now tinkering around with your team, we have gathered our committee to see if we can work out a beginner team. This is by no means the final team, but this is a squad that we are ok with as of this moment. Basically a starter team, that we will now try and work from until we build something that we are relatively happy with come GW1. This team, like any other team will see guys depart and see new guys come in for them. Ok, so let us get onto our current selections and and first our thinking along that journey, and see if we can justify our reasoning. And please, tell us what you like and where you think we could do better, we definitely take comments into consideration if for no other reason, so we have someone to blame. Goalkeepers...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW38. DGW37 was ok, certainly not spectacular. We played our TC on Kane and we all know how that went. OK. We scored 81 in total, net 72, the average was 67 and we saw a red arrow which was a shame. We now stand at 88,040 – our decent run looks over as we head into GW38. Frankly, the end of the season cannot come quick enough for our tired looking team. There were a few other ‘ok’s’ in our side – clean sheets from DDG, Dunk and Chambers, a rare goal from Mahrez and a solitary assist from Son. Definitely not ‘ok’ were Morgan, Sterling, Kenedy, Gündogan and Jesus. It wasn’t the week we hoped for, maybe we were spoiled by last season’s mammoth DGW scores. Let’s move on, this is depressing me just writing thi...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW37. No sooner had we made giant strides into the top 100k after a run of 9 successive rises, our world and ranking came crashing back down. We scored 42, net 38 – below average and we slumped down to 87k. We’re not massively surprised as we all took a look at our team post Free Hit and cringed. Our only City player was not Sterling, or Jesus, or Sane. Nope we had Gundogan. And we didn’t even play him. Our best success was at the back with clean sheets from Dunk and our Burnley duo. Kane with a Monday night tap-in was our only goal of the week. Yep, it was that bad that even Captain Salah blanked. We move onto this week – the big double and hope our luck changes. Some decent City coverage wou...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW36. It takes a lot for us to get excited and in fairness our performance this season hasn’t juiced us up on many occasions. However it seems that patience is indeed our virtue after a 72pt week in GW36. This gave our Free Hit team a weekly ranking of 23,903 and we have risen 50k places from 113,353 to a season’s best (by far) of 63,265. Forgive us for ‘boasting’, as such, but this is our 9th green arrow in a row. Happy days! Our performance this week was consistent throughout the team with only Klavan, Zaha, Mane and Wood failing to contribute anything worthwhile. Clean sheets from Baines and Tomkins added to goal-scoring performances from Sterling, Salah, Lacazette and Jesus along with bonu...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Site Team DGW34

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team DGW34 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GDGW34. Guess what? We got another green arrow (that’s 7 in a row now!!) but we still only climbed 7.5k places up to 140,557. This is getting excruciatingly predictable. Maybe DGW34 will be different. Our GW33 of score of 37 was pretty crap really, but somehow we beat the average (32). This write up will be very brief by the way. Our captain Aubayemang scored 12pts and Vardy scored 8pts. Our next highest scorer was Matt Ryan who scored 3! We were right to bench DDG lol! We have 6 players scoring 2pts and two scoring a single point each. It was painful to witness but many were in the same boat and there was no damage done. Somehow. Onwards and upwards to the big double and points galore. Righto! Last week...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 33

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 33 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 33. So our first week with our 2nd wildcard was….ok. Which perfectly sums up our recent performance really. We scored 58, the average was 48 and we saw another small green arrow, climbing 8.5k places to 148,105. We still yearn to get inside the top 100k and with the Bench Boost, Free Hit and Triple Captain left to play we hope we have every chance to do and much more if we utilise them properly. GW32 saw some good – clean sheets from DDG (obviously) and Morgan, goals from Vardy and capo Salah, an assist from Son and a welcome brace from Aubayemang; and some bad – Murray’s missed penalty and a Bailly no-show; and some ugly – West Brom scoring vs our pair of Bur...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 32

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 32 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 32. Our steady and unspectacular rise up the rankings continued with another green arrow, our 7th in eight weeks. However, we only rose 10k places and now sit in 156,626th place after a score of 86pts – not bad considering we only had 7 players playing! Salah was of course the star here – captain fantastic with 58pts. A goal from Firmino and two assists for Mane saw his sidekicks join in the fun. Even Theo contributed an assist, bless him. Shaq and Begovic did nothing, Baeur and Niasse didn’t even show up and the rest of the crew had a week off anyway. All our chips remain in hand, some plans need to be made! Last weeks result… This week’s transfer…..IT&...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 31

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 31 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 31. It was duller than dull but somehow 42pts brought us another green arrow, our 6th in 7 weeks. We’re so good at this. Ah the rank, well we rose a small 2.5k to 166,358…. hmmm maybe we’re not that good! Those celebrated green arrows have seen us rise from 252k to 166k. Talk about ‘Slowly, slowly catchee monkey’. At this rate we will at least achieve our stated aim of a top 10k finish… by GW57! Let’s just hope Richard Scudamore is listening! Thank the Lord, not you Pards, that we bought Mahrez a couple of weeks ago as his goal and assist made him our top scorer this week. Otamendi and Lowton both chipped in with clean sheets with the City man coll...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 30

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 30 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 30. All in all GW29 was…..ok. Maybe slightly better than ok. We scored 58pts vs an average of 46 and rose 22.5k places to just 168,903. Ok that’s not great we know but it’s our highest rank for a good few weeks. We have some work to do to avoid our worst ever finish but we have all our chips available. Mahrez’s last gasp goal was especially satisfying as we only bought him last week – it was just a shame he ruined Begovic’s clean sheet but beggars can’t be choosers. We made the mistake of rolling the dice on Kane as capo and one assist at home to Huddersfield was, to be honest, a let down. Salah scored, of course. A clean sheet for Otamendi was wel...[Read More]
