FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 28

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 28 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 28. Stop the clock, we had a good week! We scored 86pts, alright, alright we know many of you scored more, but we enjoyed a rise of 37k places as we rise to 221k. Still a lot of work to be done of course, but the big weeks are still to come (we say in hope!) If we had only played Niasse instead of Lingard we’d have scored ten points more. Then again if we had played Niasse he would have got injured kicking off knowing our misfortune. We didn’t captain Aguero which was also a blow but Salah did ok the day after. Oh what could have been! Oh and Alonso… guaranteed clean sheet and yet the nobhead twists his ankle and misses the points. Tosser. Other highlights were Firmino (12), Shaqiri ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 27. Well, we scored 45 which was just above the average of 43. So not bad, but ultimately not that good. But better than some we have heard from this week, so maybe we should just suck it up and get on with it. We capo’d the wrong bloke (Kun), our two Chelsea defenders didn’t play, Pogba was benched, our Shaqiri scored vs our Begovic. Otamendi and City conceded, Sterling missed an open goal. We could go on, but they were the main lowlights. Aside from Shaqiri’s header (which illustrates perfectly the lunacy of the week), good ol’ Salah continued his run of consistent and impressive form with his brace vs Spurs and just to prove there were some FPL gods smiling down at us, Matthew Lowton ap...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 26

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 26 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 26. Well we scored 60pts and saw another green arrow, albeit a very small one. But in all honesty it feels like we are treading water a tad – the team looks ok on paper but is probably not dynamic enough to cut through the masses. King Capo Kun saved things late on with his goal to rescue us to an extent, while his mates Otamendi and Sterling also contributed with a clean sheet and two assists respectively. The surprise was Begovic’s clean sheet at Chelsea – the disappointment was Alonso who we seem to have no luck with. We own him, he does nothing, we sell him he explodes. Tosser. Salah does what Salah does. Firmino rewarded our faith and as for Christensen…..IR...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 25

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 25 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 25. A green arrow! Albeit a very small one. But after 4 straight red ones we shall take it. We rose a measly 4k in the rankings and now sit in 252,220th place. Hardly ideal but we will keep plugging away. We scored 55 last time out, 5 above the average. We were hoping for more of a rise given that we profited from that Kun hat-trick, if only we had captained him… and so said many. We instead captained Kane and rued his last minute sitter… and so said many. Our defence were the main culprits in us not hitting any real heights as they brought home just 7 points between the 4 of them. Despite at least 3 of them having fixtures in which you would have almost expected a clean sheet....[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 24. Hmmm… A 4th consecutive red arrow. Our worst run of the season. Crap. This is all despite picking up 66pts which was actually 8pts better than the average. It’s tough at the top. Although we’re not anywhere near the top! We’ve dropped outside the top 250k. Last week’s transfers didn’t quite go to plan. Jesse picked up a rather pathetic 2pts while despite the Liverpool v City game being a 7 goal thriller, Aguero registered just 5pts. However, Kun does face Newcastle this week so he will have the opportunity to make up for it. Elsewhere, our defence racked up a pitiful 5pts. Our star performer was Arnautovic with 16pts. Salah did what Salah does. And Harry delivered as our captain....[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 23

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 23 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 23. Christmas, Santa Claus, Happiness, Elves, Reindeers with red noses, Joy, Kids with presents, New Year rejoicing, time with families. Yeah, whatever… Means nothing when you check back in and have 3 red arrows out of 4. If we could say we got too drunk and missed a deadline or capped the wrong player then that’d be better, but we didn’t. We were diligent, we had the discussions. We just got it wrong. And sometimes you can just try too hard! We’ve dropped from 146k to 219k since the last time we spoke to you. On the positive side we were delighted by how many people, both on the site and twitter, actually complained about the lack of an article each week! We did as...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 20. In a week where some scored over 100 or at least very close to it, we scored 81. Still way above the average of 60 so we should be pleased and it has seen us rise us to a season’s best rank of 107,751. Highlights were a Kane hat-trick, the usual goal and assist for Salah, clean sheets for Christensen, Otamendi and Dunk and a captain’s performance from Sterling. Sadly Begovic, Masuaku, Hazard, Richarlison and Shaqiri scored the grand total of 8pts between them so we expect some payback from them this week. Last weeks result… We have held our transfer this week We had actually planned to sell Lowton for Jones but a cheeky and ill-timed price rise for United’s fine...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19. After picking up a red arrow in GW17 it was back to our favourite colour green in GW18. A score of 60 saw us finish 8pts above the average. Admittedly it was a small green arrow but at this difficult time of the season we’ll take whatever we can get. Our game-week got off to a poor start as Danny Simpson & Leicester yet again failed to keep a clean sheet. Saturday afternoon saw our captain Eden Hazard fail to sparkle and we were forced to make do with just an assist. Andreas Christensen pitched in with 8pts but Shaqiri & Richarlison did nowt. Raheem Sterling left it late but we were happy to wait as he rewarded us with two goals as City spanked Harry Kane and Spurs. Sunday af...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 18. The good thing about this time of the season is that the game-weeks come thick and fast and there isn’t much time to ponder on a rubbish week. We scored 45pts in GW17, below average, dropped in rank to almost 150k. Not what we were hoping for, but let’s be honest we’ve been here before and undoubtedly, we’ll venture there again soon enough. The highlights were obviously few and far between – clean sheets for new recruit Otamendi and a sneaky one for Christensen saw that Lady Luck did actually smile on us briefly. An assist for Richarlison was followed by an injury to the midfielder and it was left to Raheeeeem to (relatively speaking) save us with a couple...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 17. A fourth green arrow on the spin, what is the world coming to? Maybe we are doing something right after all! 56 points in GW16 was a decent, if unspectacular, performance – the average was 43, so we’re happy and sees us rise to a ranking of 125,647. Like many, our week was dominated and made by Kane the captain who contributed 24 points. Obviously Salah helped, but then everyone has him, while Begovic’s penalty save at Palace helped him return 8pts. With 43 points out of 56 coming from three players, the less said about the rest the better, but many of you had similar outcomes and can relate. We move onto midweek GW17 with 2 free transfers and 2.1mln in the bank. The ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16. 61pts. A green arrow. Our highest overall rank (151,974) of the season since GW1. On the whole we’re pretty happy and there’s nothing we can really moan about but given who’s writing this week’s intro we’ll find something to moan about! While 61pts was quite a decent score it’s worth noting that our captain, Eden Hazard, scored 30 of those points all on his own. Although, after last week’s debacle he had some making up to do! The only other players to contribute any meaningful points were Simpson, Salah & Morata. The rest are in the dog house. Before we move on we should highlight our bench. Let’s just say it’s a bloody good thing that none of them were required this week as ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15. We of course played our wildcard and while the results weren’t instantly remarkably ‘WOW’, we did ok, given the rotation nightmares that many seemed to suffer. We scored 55 vs an average of 47, giving us a weekly rank of 1.3mln and saw us rise in the overall ranking to 246,768 from 298k. A step in the right direction for sure and as long as it continues, we remain a happy bunch. If you remember, one of the reasons we finally played the wildcard was to sort our defence and our new crew certainly did us proud with Christensen, Mustafi and Dunk all recording clean sheets. However, the true tale of our game-week came late on in the action as Sterling and Salah came up trumps, Salah from th...[Read More]
