FPL Fixtures Analysis GW7

FPL Fixtures Analysis GW7 When FF247 checked my readiness for writing this Fixtures article, I realized that I’ve been put on a 10-day straight work schedule coming up on Monday. You know, during a pandemic that’s ramping up all over the States, working 10 days straight is EXACTLY what a person wants to do, right? Ever the gentleman, Adam (Init to you) gave me permission to just bin the article this week and focus on work – but I’ve done enough of these articles over the years that I thought I could probably churn something out on a lazy Sunday whilst sipping on something poured on the rocks. And if that didn’t work, I figured I could always grab a throwback and get some DayQuil into my system to push this article to the finish line. Long story short, Adam gave me an out, but I decli...[Read More]

FF247 FPL Team GW6

FF247 FPL Team GW6 Welcome to FF247 FPL Team GW6 In our defence… It’s fair to say that when we decided to start the season with a double up of Liverpool at the back we were hoping for more than just the solitary clean sheet, and we certainly weren’t expecting that they would have conceded an average of nearly two per game (albeit it somewhat skewed by that Villa thrashing). The hapless duo got us two points this week, between them. We can then only assume that a certain Mr Pickford had seen our team and decided that enough was enough… They weren’t alone though as Ryan and Mitchell served only to double the entire total of our back-line to four points. Taylor sat laughing at us from the bench with five. Things got a bit better up top with goals galore as Havertz, Jimenez and DCL...[Read More]

FPL Captain Picks Gameweek 6

FPL Captain Picks Gameweek 6 Welcome to FPL Captain Picks Gameweek 6 Werner’s expertise After a dreadful showing in GW5, the pressure was on our ‘experts’ to deliver in GW6. Let’s go see how they fared… Init brought us Kane. And his 32 Captain points. The strongest performance out of the lot. Unfortunately for Init, he didn’t actually own him, never mind being able to stick the armband on him. He captained Sterling himself and, despite scoring 72 points and being a good 12 points above the average, this was the lowest score amongst the ‘experts’. GP went jingoistic with Salah and that would have given him a respectable 14 points. Had he followed through. But he didn’t, he went for Kane himself and grabbed a 94 score, the highest out of the ‘experts’. Kop… we still aren’t entire...[Read More]

FPL Tips Gameweek 6

FPL Tips Gameweek 6 Welcome to FPL Tips Gameweek 6 Sometimes in this life, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t compete. For instance, as good as he can be, Aubameyang will never be Henry; the Houses of Parliament’s morality will always fall far short of Andy Burnham’s relative benevolence. Maupay can only dream of hitting Kane’s numbers — or am I being too harsh? More to follow soon on that one… Anyway, enough of those loose comparisons, here’s what I’m basically trying to say: this Tips article won’t be ‘like’ (read: worthy of lacing the boots of) last week’s Tips article. Swirly did a truly magnificent job — custom-designed pitch graphics and all. I’ll be sticking to just a solitary phone screenshot and snaps from Getty Images that have minimal relevance to the points being made. ...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 6

FPL Fixtures Gameweek 6 When I first realised I was writing Fixtures this week my initial thought was ‘what’s the point’. That’s not me being petty or dismissive, more a genuine consideration given the results over the opening 5 game weeks. The two constants for any FPL manager – form and fixtures, no longer seem quite so important. Take West Ham as a case in point. They lose their opening two fixtures; at home to Newcastle and away to the Gunners, so we conclude they are out of form, right? Their fixtures in Game week’s 3 and 4 (home to Wolves and away to Leicester) looked like ‘bad’ fixtures so logically we should avoid them but they win both, score 7, conceding 0. Normality seemingly returned as they headed towards a 3-0 defeat to Spurs at the weekend, only for them to score 3 in ...[Read More]

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW6

Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW6 Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW6. West Brom 0 Burnley 0. After 5 weeks we finally have our first 0-0 of the season, a glimmer of normality at long last. The weekend results as a whole did carry a semblance of this normality; a few 1-0 wins, a couple of 1-1 draws, so who knows, maybe things are finally settling down. Onto the results. This week our winner is Turbo who smashed in a whopping 15pts thanks in no small part in his prediction of Mane for FGS. He wasn’t the only one to do so, special shoutouts to Padster, Redmen and Sweetbluetoffee. However, it was our very own Matt with 14pts who snatched 2nd this week, so close my friend. Bringing up the rear in 3rd place were Hammerfan, Mosc, Sarri-ball and RafflesH...[Read More]

FPL Tips: Things to Consider Ahead of the Christmas Period

FPL Tips: Things to Consider Ahead of the Christmas Period After the opening fixtures, the 2020-21 Premier League campaign looks to be one of the most unpredictable in the competition’s history. According to a report from the BBC, English football’s top-flight clubs spent £1.218 billion in the summer transfer window, only £159 million less than the previous year. In turn, fantasy football options are arguably more exciting than ever before. So, let’s take a look at several factors to consider ahead of the Premier League’s busy Christmas period. Is Liverpool’s Defence Worth Gambling On? In the first Merseyside derby of the season, the reigning Premier League champions lost Virgil van Dijk for the majority of the campaign after he sustained a Grade 3 anterior cruciate ligament injury followi...[Read More]

Top Picks from the Promoted Three

Top Picks from the Promoted Three Leeds United, Fulham and West Brom are all back in the big time and already some names have jumped out as FPL bargains in the opening weeks. Here’s a look at some of the players from the promoted sides that have made a flying start this season and have provided excellent value for those who took a punt in the first handful of rounds. Patrick Bamford – Leeds United There were plenty of question marks surrounding Patrick Bamford going into the current campaign but the Whites striker has silenced many of his critics. Three goals in the first four games before the international break and Bamford showed why manager Marcelo Bielsa has such great faith in the 27-year-old, who already had 30 FPL points to his name at that point in time. 1️⃣st p...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 5

Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 5 Welcome to Fantasy Football Live Match Chat Gameweek 5. Back to reality. Or at least some semblance of it. We kick off on Saturday lunchtime with the title decider between Everton and Liverpool at 12.30pm. The (new look) Soccer Saturday have been snookered again with just the one 3pm game to get their politically correct teeth into as Chelsea welcome Southampton. Man City and Arsenal face off in the ‘tea-time’ game at 5.30pm Newcastle and Man United see us out on Saturday at 8pm. Sunday sees four games with Sheffield United and Fulham getting us under way at 12pm, followed by Palace and Brighton at 2pm, Spurs and West Ham at 4.30pm with Leicester and Villa in the late slot at 7.15pm. We then have two games on Monday again with West Br...[Read More]

FF247 FPL Team GW5

FF247 FPL Team GW5 Welcome to FF247 FPL Team GW5 I’m Spider-Man In this the almightiest of WTF seasons, how’s this for an encapsulation of it in all its weird and wonderful glory? Last week’s team scored 59 points. Eleven points above the average. If we took away the scores of Alain Saint-Maximin (12) & Callum Wilson (16) – and let’s be honest who would take them out ahead of a game against toiling Burnley, who I ask you … who? – and replaced them with two jobber 2-pointers, we would have scored 35 points and been THIRTEEN points behind the average. Ha’way the lads! If the two of our Geordie-doubting Site Team who shall remain nameless haven’t already tossed their phone or laptop out of the nearest window and are still reading this sentence then well done you! For the polar opposite o...[Read More]
