Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9. Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 9. International breaks are not good for the writers of captain picks articles, because they interrupt the flow in terms of Premier League games. If we want to compare data from, say, the last four gameweeks we need to go back one month. To put it in perspective, that’s when Teemu Pukki still scored goals. Yeah, that long. Not to mention that players go away from their clubs and countries to join a totally different competitive environment. They go through a lot of travel and emotions for 10 days and they then are suddenly back to playing on a cold rainy night in Stoke. Well, not exactly there, but you know what I mean. I don’t expect team form ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 9

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 9 As we fast approach the middle of yet another international break, the transfers have slowed down, thoughts are wondering elsewhere with the Rugby World Cup and international friendlies and it’s fair to say fantasy football has taken a back seat. The hacking of FPL accounts even seems to have been put on hold. Step forward DCI Coleen Rooney and Rebekah “I’m a celebrity, get me out of this awkwardness” Vardy for a dose of entertainment that you just can’t help but find interesting or hilarious. Or both. Much like Love Island, many people have put it out there that they aren’t remotely engrossed in the storyline but, deep down, we know it’s more a case of “The lady doth protest too much”. As Pam from Gavin and Stacey said, “It’s all the drama, Mic...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW9

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW9 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW9. We owe you two winners, as we dropped a ball in GW7 and didn’t announce one, and so here are the results from both GW’s 7 & 8; GW7 It was a high scoring game-week with a mammoth 17pts the requirement for top-spot. skybluestan came so close with a more than respectable 16pts, closely pushed by mahelmy who finished with 15pts. However, both ultimately fell short as PM scooped the top spot with that very impressive 17pts. GW8 Our very own DMC took top-spot with 11pts this week – its a fix, I hear you cry, I’ll admit I’d be suspicious had our usual bean-counter not have handed his usual responsibility to Matt so it’s all legit and above board, I ca...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8 Don’t panic… When McGinn is your joint top scorer on 8 points and he isn’t even your captain you could be forgiven for panicking. But, alas, it’s all relative, and most people were in the same boat this week. Our new signigns Mings and Abraham proved to be unispired choices as they combined for a grand total of 3 points. Elsewhere we had Sterling on 7, Mount, Pieters and Soyuncu all with 6, Salah on 3, Pukki on 2 and Pope on 1. Our captain (Aguero) didn’t even start the game, although he did come on and notch a belated assist. All that left us on 50 points, 1 below the average, and an inevitable red arrow, our first of the season. It knocked us back about 20k in the ranks and ...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW8

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW8 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW8. ‘I got a confession to make, I’m a fool…’ But you knew that already. Basically, what we are saying is that we dropped a ball this week and due to a slight mis-understanding we haven’t actually counted up the winners from GW7! Delaying the article and therefore the chance to post predictions wasn’t an option so we have decided to crack on with this week’s comp and we promise you two winners will be announced next week. As you were… THIS WEEK’S COMPETITION… Scoring couldn’t be simpler: Correct Score = 3 points Correct result = 1 point Correct First Goalscorer of the game-week = 5 points (to clarify this is who you think will s...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Tips Gameweek 8 Full disclosure, I haven’t seen any goals from the weekend’s games. Very unlike me but hey ho, I’ve blagged Tips before and I’m damned sure I can do it again (kidding, Ed). A combination of having a packed prearranged weekend of a night out on Friday, a full day at the football (i.e. early start and late bed!) on Saturday, a family walk and then dinner at friends on Sunday which turned in to more drinks, then a full day hill walk in the Scottish Borders on Monday followed my usual Monday night squash match mean that I am in the dark as to how the weekend really went, not a clue – save for checking my own score drunkenly on both Saturday and Sunday – so I thought, what I’ll...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 8 We always love a good ‘Capo-off’ and so this week we have asked four of our writers to give us their picks for GW8. We asked them not to necessarily name just who their own pick will probably be, but who they would pick given a blank canvas. May the best man win and all that… DMC – Aubameyang vs Bournemouth (H) He was born in France and that’s where he learned all the tricks of the football trade but few will know that he has played in Italy, more specifically in Milan’s U-19 squad with whom he excelled in the Champions Youth Cup held in Malaysia in 2007 scoring 7 in 6 games. Why is this relevant? It isn’t. But I was asked to write a whole paragraph on my captain pick. So,...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8

Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8 Welcome to Fantasy Football Fixture Analysis Gameweek 8. As we enter the final game week before the second international break I find myself scratching my head after another poor score and yet another (I’ve got 5 in total) red arrow. As ever I look for the positives, and whilst I can’t find any In my FPL side, I will take my switch to this weeks fixtures article (from last weeks tips) as an ideal opportunity to scholar-up on which teams I should be targeting in the coming weeks. So If like me your game-week has been less than satisfactory, join me in pretending it never happened and look to start afresh come GW8. I have made a point of omitting Manchester City this week, their fixtures are good, you already have their players, you don’t need me ...[Read More]
