Promoted teams analysis: Sheffield United

Promoted teams analysis: Sheffield United Welcome to the second instalment of our Promoted Teams Analysis. In this one we look at Sheffield United. You might be wondering how I got this gig. It would be perfectly reasonable to presume that a Southerner devised the rota and decided that, as a Northerner, I know everything about the north of England. It is true, everyone in the North knows everyone. It would also be perfectly reasonable to presume that I was stupid enough to tell everyone that I had selected Sheffield United as my ‘favourite team’ on the FPL website. Unfortunately, this one is true. A rush of blood; a shift of allegiance from West Yorkshire to South Yorkshire. Goodbye Huddersfield, hello Sheffield United. Undeterred by my lack of knowledge about my new team (when has that ev...[Read More]

Promoted Teams Analysis: Norwich

Promoted Teams Analysis: Norwich Looking at Norwich as Fantasy Prospects for the New Season Norwich City’s promotion to the Premier League almost felt destined to happen as the later weeks of the Championship season came by. The Canaries only lost six fixtures last season and won the most games with 27 victories in the second-tier. They will be a welcome addition to the Premier League next season, and there will be anticipation to see some of their star performers and how they can transition to life in the top flight. Many will be aware of the qualities that the Canaries have but will also be well aware that they will naturally also be among the favourites to be relegated. However, there is no doubting that they are a proven Championship team, and it will be fascinating to see how they adj...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Interview; A league winner on a mission…

Fantasy Football Interview; A league winner on a mission… When one focuses on the country of Norway, they immediately may think of the beautiful fjords, or maybe the Midnight Sun, Christmas trees, trolls or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The more aged of us may recall ‘Maggie Thatcher, your boys have taken a hell of a beating’ while millenials may be more familiar with trade deals with the EU. But if I said ‘Fantasy Football’ your immediate thought would probably not be Norway. However, it was one Norwegian who lit up our Regulars League this season, winning the coveted title by 34 points. In fact one look at his season stats and the list of accomplishments are almost as impressive as a Messi or Ronaldo résumé. I am of course talking about Fabian von Harling, but you will know him as ThePeleO...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team; The Season Wrap Up Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team; The Season Wrap Up. GW39…. What’s the opposite of teambuilding? We’ve all been there; be it at school, at Cub Scouts, at work or as part of a sports team. Some bright spark decides it’s raft building day in the naive hope that this somehow will strengthen bonds and ties and bring you all together into some sort of seamless unbeatable unit. Cue 11am on the edge of a freezing river and there are two distinct schools of thought already at play. The alpha males are out in force with their lofty ideas, staring one another down whilst some others stand back shrugging their cold shoulders with indifference and some others are cowering under the trees hoping nobody notices that...[Read More]

Well this past weekend finally saw the culmination to what has been a truly amazing title race as Liverpool’s 2-0 win was not enough to overtake City as they thumped four past Brighton in a 4-1 win which then saw Chris Houghton sacked for reasons beyond the sane person. I’m sure we will all join in congrats to City’s three fans While all eyes were on the two best teams in the North of England, the neighbours had a mixed bag with Everton getting a decent draw against Spurs and United losing 2-0 to Cardiff… 2-0… to a relegated team… have the wheels fallen off yet? There was a very tasty look...[Read More]

We of course began this journey in Monaco last August and have experienced so much since. The final four weeks of an FPL season should never be dull and so it proved. The final diary episode features birthday party flirting, Duffygate, a DGW, batting, batting for the opposition, an inspiring captain choice, back seat drunken fumbling, a final week Bench Boost, captain failure and a goodbye appearance from Fritzl and Lady Gin. Game-week 35 The plan was to Bench Boost this week but Deeney’s suspension means I would have to either play both Dunk & Duffy away to Wolves & Spurs or take a hit t...[Read More]
