FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW25

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW25 Eddie Howe is a LIAR! A strange old midweek campaign for us which saw us end up with only 10 players and even one of those made the briefest of brief cameos We scraped in at 46, a meagre 4 above the overall average and yet we still grabbed our 6th green arrow in a row and a small rise up in the rankings by just over a thousand spots to land in 31,076th, yet another season high. Jimenez and Aubameyang led the way with 12 points each, Pogba and Doherty also pulled their weight with 7 and 6 respectively. After that it was all downhill, Captain Salah let us (and the vast majority) down with a rare blank and the less said about Shaw, Wan-B and Sane the better really. Although we do reserve special mentions for Digne and Callum Wilson, or more notably Eddie ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW24

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW24 Who said FPL is a squad game? We played 5-a-side FPL in GW24 and returned 70pts. Well, to explain ourselves properly our 5 superstars contributed 64 of our 70pts with Captain Salah leading the way with 30pts, Sane 12, Wilson 9, Pogba 8 and Jimenez 5. The less said about the other 6 numptys the better, especially Digne who scored an own goal from 25 yards for a -1 payback. Our 70pt total sees our team of misfits record a 5th consecutive green arrow and sees us show us a global rank of 32,227, which is a season best so far. Last week’s result… This week’s transfer decision… We have 1 FT, a healthy balance of £1.7m to burn, and more avenues to pursue than… some weirdo who pursues avenues. Our avenues include the return of (th...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW23

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW23 Another decent week here, and yet again also one that could have been so much better; but for some fine margin decisions this week in both team & bench selection, and some much wider ones in weeks previous. To have Shaw with his 8 points sat behind Camarasa on the bench is gutting. To have Rashford not even in the squad, having owned him a few weeks back is baffling, but more on that later! As for those who we did bother to pick Fabianski (9) and Digne (12) did us proud, and Wan-B did us even prouder with his simple 4 points… 3 of them somehow coming in the form of bonus points despite conceding 2 goals in a defeat, go figure, Superman he truly is. Captain Salah carried the can for our mids and forwards with a contribution of 22. It’s ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW22

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW22 Oh what could have been… It’s fair to say we have mixed feelings this week; we sold Rashford (12 points) and Sane (10 points) and bought Wilson (6 points) and Pogba (3 points). Well ok, we say mixed…! It is actually mixed though as we didn’t drop off a cliff as a result, voluntarily or otherwise, we did somehow manage to still grab a green arrow, albeit not as big a one as we would have, had we simply overslept on New Year’s Day, or something similarly convenient. Someone please remind us next year to simply get blind drunk and forget the team! As it was we somehow scraped through with 63 points, with only really Kane (c) on 24 and Son with 13 pulling any weight. Wilson did get that 6 and the much derided Shaw got 5, the r...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW21. Two Salah’s would just be greedy… What a lovely, gracious lad he is, giving his team-mate the chance to complete his hat-trick. Some said. Others, ones who perhaps captained him, for example, used different words… Mo’s ‘generosity’ was probably a 10 point swing, perhaps even 12 if you factor in him possibly taking an extra bonus point, but we aren’t bitter… far from it, we are furious! we are ‘Claudio Ranieri’ furious. Despite his errant ways Mo helped us along to 68 points this week, leading the way with 24. If we’d told you beforehand that Kane, Son and Jimenez would get 2 goals, an assist and 4 bonus points between them you’d...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW20. The trouble with a wildcard team is often not who you bought; rather who you didn’t. There’s always those regrets, swept aside on to the floor of the ‘drawing-board’ room. Not so much the ones who catch your eye when you walk around afterwards wistfully kicking up the dust, seeing names like Wilson, Alli or Aubameyang peek through the remnants, more the ones like Felipe Anderson and Hazard, who still seem to sparkle through it, almost winking at you in mock disgust of what could have been that week. But alas, we couldn’t have everyone we wanted. If we did we’d have had a midfield of epic proportions… but the last time we checked 1-8-1 wasn’t a valid formation. All...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW19. Sergio took to the boards this week and he couldn’t have put it any better; “Nightmare gameweek for the site team “. It may have been his sole contribution this week but at least he was 100% accurate with it! 45 points saw us with 10 less than the overall average. Kane got us a third of our overall points with his 15, the rest averaged 3 each. Enough said. Overall it saw us plunge back down 25,000 odd places to finish in 84,654th. Last week’s result in full… We go into GW19 with 1 free transfer and a more than healthy bank balance of £3.2m, but with a wildcard to swing at our issues could this finally be the week….? This weeks transfer decision(s) Yes, in short! T...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW18. There’ll be no fancy poems here. Or 12 days of nonsense, no lovey dovey Christmas puns and no general glad handing. Why? Well firstly because it’s bidness time. It’s time to get your heads out of Christmas and get back to the things that matter most – FPL. Secondly, because your Site Team panel here aren’t all young, foot loose and fancy free like your previous writers this week. Au contraire, they’re a bunch of long in the tooth, hard bitten grumps who’ve probably stood in one more long Christmas queue than is healthy for any man, especially knowing that they are about to lavish a month’s wages on gifts that will be discarded by New Year. And all in e...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW17

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW17 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW17. Hi, my (our!) name is Fantasy Football 247. And I took out Mo Salah. For a hit. For Sterling. And Lacazette…. You know things are bad when fictitious ‘support groups’ start popping up on the site comments. Even worse when you are tempted to actually join one! It was a strange old week that was. Our defence held us up with 24 of our final 43 points. Alonso and Robertson got clean sheets, the latter chipped in with an assist too, and Doherty continued to defy his alleged status as a defender with yet another poachers goal. Other than that we got a Richarlison goal as our sole contribution from our front 7. The other 6 combined for a grand total of 9 points. Thanks guys! All in all it...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW14

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW14 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW14. Oh dear! Our fine run of green arrows was halted in inglorious fashion as we managed just 39 points last week which saw us come crashing down the rankings by 20k to land in 58,159th. We missed the overall average by 11 points, which is never a good sign. The fact that only 3 of our original starting 11 scored over 2 points probably tells you all you need to know. Just as well we had such a strong bench then as Lucas Moura didn’t see the pitch at all in GW13, and like many, Obi Wan subsequently lit up his light-sab(v)er and came to the rescue once more. Our bench was weakly tickled in the comments last week, and possibly rightly so… (it is what it is due to many weeks of battling against ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW13

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW13 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW13. As much as our committee may come across as somewhat disjointed and sometimes dysfunctional the end result is all that matters and we now have five green arrows in a row thanks to last weeks score of 63, which was 15 above the overall average and 5 above the top 10k average, and that sees us jump up another 12k in the rankings to leave us sitting in a fairly respectable and encouraging position of 38,731. 28 of those points came from our Liverpool duo of Robertson and Salah (c), despite them posting only a modest 2-0 victory on the card. Alonso added 8 with a clean sheet and 2 bonus points, Fraser got an assist and a bonus point and Aguero got his customary goal. The other six are all in the naughty...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW12. We somehow garnered 80 points in GW11 and yet another green arrow, and for once a decently fat one. We say somehow because six of our team managed to score just two points each; Patricio, Mendy, Robertson, Salah, Fraser and Vardy, thanks all, for nothing! Our transfer in last week was Arnie and he carried the charge for us weighing in with 12 himself, Kun did us proud as captain with a 26, Alonso got us 6 with an assist, Richarlison repaid some faith with a 15 and Moura surprised us with a cheeky 9. We managed to rise over 40k in the rankings and now sit at about 50k overall with our 4th green arrow in a row under our belt. Last weeks talk of Wildcarding was quickly quashed, and thankfully so, given...[Read More]
