FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 14 2016-17

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 14 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 14 2016-17. It’s important to remember that there are 38 gameweeks in the FPL season. This is something I had to remind myself of constantly this weekend. No matter how badly your season is going (and there are a few stinkers out there), you still have 65% of the season remaining to get right again. Have there been some anomalous results? For sure. Have I failed to accurately predict a sufficient amount of those strange scorelines? You’re damn right – but I’m still staying positive. Because here’s the thing: for the most part, things are actually going to script. Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal all won this past weekend. Were they wins in the fashion that you’d hoped they’d be? Probabl...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 13 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 13 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 13 FPL News: If you scored big in GW12 or for that matter simply respectable, you are either a psychic or somehow life led you down a path where you turned to into a Victor Anichebe owner. Think we will take the low score and a clean conscience, but that’s just us and no one said we were not spiteful. Anyway, Burnley gets their tokus handed to them by City to start the game-week. That is followed by four 3pm games. Hull take on the aliens who stole Liverpool’s attacking talents in West Brom. We also see the champs host Boro, the Swans tangle with Palace in the EPL’s version of Sunday league football and poor man’s West Brom, Liverpool host the suddenly alive Black Cats who by the way have used ...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 13

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 13 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 13 2016-17. I think it’s best if we can all just agree that last round should just be written off in its entirety. It was evident that there were some tired legs out there from most of our key players. And there were also a few teams that really looked like they hadn’t played together for a while. Results didn’t go as planned, and many fantasy teams suffered as a result. On a normal week, Liverpool would’ve probably put at least 2 goals on Southampton given the form they’re in. And Chelsea probably would’ve scored more than a single goal on Middlesbrough. And nobody is quite sure how they feel about Yaya scoring two goals for City, but that stat alone should tell you how abnormal this last round really was....[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 12 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 12 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 12 FPL News: A two week gap in FPL can seem like an eternity, especially when you have to watch the international games knowing that you’re precious assets are literally risking injury at every turn. Thankfully it’s now over and we can return to normality this weekend. All the worry over whether Sanchez / Hazard / Costa / ‘insert your player name here’ is either fit / injured / on a plane / missed a plane / drunk / ‘insert daft rich player behaviour here’, is almost over. This is a rare PL weekend as we have a grand total of 8 games on Saturday. GW12 itself begins on Saturday lunchtime as Manchester United host Arsenal and runs all the way through to Monday evening when the excitement will sure...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 17

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 17 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 17. This is brilliant, three game-weeks in a row mean that if you are a hit-merchant then your squad will likely look markedly different to what it did this time last week! Beautiful stuff. Well we go again this weekend and it’s pretty much back to reality – no quick turnaround to a midweek game-week (booooooo), but rather some 3-day action that should keep us fully satisfied. We have some corker games (see Man City vs Arsenal and Monday night’s Merseyside derby), we have some matches that should accrue us some well deserved fantasy points (see Chelsea at Palace and Spurs home to Burnley) and we have some matches that scream ‘sleeeeeeeep’ (see Bournemouth vs South...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 16

  Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 16 article. Well, that didn’t go as planned. We had 8 guys earn 5 points or less this gameweek, that is usually not a recipe for success. However not everything was gloom and despair as among all the crappiness there was some FPL heroes that came to at least save us from total disaster. With the likes of Alexis, Kane, Firmino, Pedro, Walker and Cech one would not expect to be turning to a Swan and Hornet defender for the points. Amat and Holebas did what they could for us and rescued our dignity. Well them and The Prince of Darkness Diego Costa. Because with a bunch of misses everywhere on the team we did manage to captain our highest scorer. So thank you Prince Diego and our two defen...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 15. It was Christmas Eve babe, In the drunk tank, An old man said to me, won’t see another one… So it’s not quite Christmas yet but it’s time to start getting into the festive spirit. For some Christmas is about making a fool of themselves at the office Christmas party, for others it’s about spending time with family, for others it’s about presents, while for some it’s a religious time of the year. For some of us it’s about squeezing five game-weeks into three weeks, yes indeed we’ve got our priorities straight. As we’ve seen over the course of the season rotation is becoming an even bigger issue than it has been in the past and it’s only going to get worse over the weeks ahead. So start your plan...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 15

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 15 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 15. We’re coming into a bit of a log jam for fixtures here in the next three rounds. GW15 will start this coming weekend, but GW16 will then take place midweek with GW17 starting the weekend after. For active players, this is always a good time to shoot above some of those managers who only check in on their teams on Fridays. Without a doubt, there will be managers who completely forget to check their teams for midweek adjustments. So when you see the three matchups listed for each of my selections this round, know that you’re really looking at one full weeks worth of fixtures. Because of this, there won’t be a typical fixtures article going into GW16, but I’ll still have some tips for you for GW16 in lieu of fixtu...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 14

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 14. Well hello there, Mito here *pauses for applause* thanks mom, can always count on her. I rarely come out of the Grab, Avoid or Bore Off bubble I stay in and for good reason. Picking players to tip, captain choices or recommending teams for people to invest in seems like a lot of responsibility when you consider how serious some managers take their FPL teams. However after participating in the captaincy article last week, I decided the public needed me or at least that is what my wife told me. Hmmm, odd how happy she was yesterday when I was sitting at the computer coming up with the article, probably just a coincidence. You know there is a tradition at FF247 and it goes something l...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 14

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 14 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 14. Very occasionally I take a serious tablet and the intro this week is one of those times. Sorry if that’s not right or the “done thing” or if Around the Grounds is seen as the light hearted article of the week. Well maybe it is and fear not, normality will return in the match previews below. But for now, I’m sure most if not all of you will share the sadness of two events that have dominated our beautiful game this week. On Tuesday we were saddened to see the destruction of Brazilian team Chapecoense in a horrific plane crash in Colombia. The modest team, from the small city of Chapeco, were enjoying a fairytale season. They had returned to the Brazilian top-flight in 2014 for the first tim...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 14

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 14 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 14 article. Having fared poorly the previous week, as many did, we needed to bounce back this week and we did just that with a decent 68 points which saw us rise over 45,000 places and back up to a respectable overall rank of 34,512. Captaining Sanchez helped us massively, as did hanging onto Kun, which in itself feels like a feat given that 4/5 of the committee actually now admit that they sold him on their own teams! Other than those two, Austin got us 9 and Pieters brought a clean sheet and 6 but the rest were left wanting, it does go to show that you can still post a decent score if just a few of your troops turn up. Our big disappointment was of course our actual transfer as we had planne...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 13

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 13 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 13. Thirteen… #shivers Is twelve the new thirteen? Last weeks abysmal mess from the majority of the top picks would perhaps suggest so. Lukaku (4 pts as captain), Kun (4), Coutinho (4) and Sanchez (2) all disappointed. If you lumped on Hazard then you’d be somewhat delighted, but still subdued, with a massive 8 from him. As it transpired the correct answer was either Costa or Defoe who brought home 18 and 22 respectively. All in all it was a disappointingly low scoring week with just 20 goals in total and nearly a quarter of those were in just one game. It almost felt like the fun had been sucked out of our game as one player after another simply failed to produce. The Inte...[Read More]
