FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 27

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 27 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 27. If I may: this schedule is a complete mess, and I feel 100% inadequate in trying to dole out any meaningful advice in how to deal with it. But then it struck me, I should just write how I would normally write, tell you that it’s all probably rubbish, and then hope that you are able to do the opposite of what I’m thinking and nab yourself some points. But what if I’m a double agent? What if I’m really good at navigating byes and DGW’s from my extensive MLS coverage? Maybe I’m just trying to trick you into doing the opposite of what’s in this article in hopes of coveting all of the points for myself. But… nah. I’m a really good dude, and I want you all to succeed. I am feeling just a bit overwhelmed about h...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 26 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 26 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 26 FPL News: It’s a slightly reduced fixture list this week as we have just the 8 games having lost all of Arsenal, both Manchester clubs and Southampton due to the League Cup final but if this comes as a shock to you at this stage then you really haven’t been paying attention! And it’s probably a bit late to do anything about it now. If you are feeling deprived though then this is just the appetiser to GW28 which looks like the shell of a real gameweek. This one does still span three days though and we begin on Saturday with five 3pm kick offs featuring the likes of Chelsea and Everton with potentially plum home ties as the main highlights, before Watford entertain West Ham in the evening game. Sund...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 26

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 26 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 26. The two week break from FPL has given us much time to mull over transfers, watch the price changes with panic and disbelief and pray that none of our number gets injured in any of the various Cup matches being played. Frustrating as it may have been, FPL now becomes intense, with every transfer valuable – a potential DGW next week is followed by a larger blank game-week in GW28 and then the fun of the rearranged games creating large DGWs comes into play. Due to Sunday’s League Cup Final between Manchester Utd and Southampton there are only eight Premier League fixtures with Arsenal and Man City joining the Cup finalists in missing GW26. With Man City not playing, leaders Chelse...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 26 article. A small green arrow was delivered to our doorstep by the FPL stork after a GW25 score of 58 – this compares to the average of 47, so it was ok, nothing special but a win is a win and we’ll take it. Captain Zlatan let us down, missing numerous good chances to score, he should have had at least a brace but we had to accept his assist. His main competitor for the armband, Alexis, obviously rubbed out noses in it with a brace, slightly fortuitously, but a brace and maximum bonus points to boot for a 15pt return. Clean sheets for Cech, Coleman and Pieters were boosted by either bonus points or save points for the trio. All the rest of the crowd were 2 pointers except Kyle Walker who did...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 26

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 26.In the words of The Pet Shop Boys ‘What have I, What have I, What have I done to deserve this?’. I haven’t written a Tips article for the site since 2016 and my first one of 2017 happens to fall on the first blank game-week of the season. Great. To be honest I can handle dealing with the blanks although you wouldn’t know it if you looked at my team and rank, it’s having to follow on from Mito’s superb Tips article last week which is causing me problems. Now while Mito likes to mix things up I on the other hand am a creature of habit and I will be adopting the tried and tested format. We moan time & time again throughout the season that we’re being beaten by casual FPL players who just get lucky. ...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26. The FA Cup is usually just a rude interruption for FPL players, and this week has been no different, but for once it may have been of some relevance as we decided to look at it from the point of view of choosing a Captain from the fixtures, if you had to, and what the outcome would have been. It’s interesting simply because all of the Premier League teams were up against lesser ranked opposition and indeed some against non-league teams. No brainer then, yeah? Not necessarily. Aguero against Huddersfield… Aguero against Huddersfield when even they play a second stream team… Ah come on, we’d be transferring him in droves just to captain him. He’d have go...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 26. Well, we’ve finally made it to the bye week that everybody has been fretting over for so long now. If you still have your wildcard intact, this ‘ain’t nothin’ but a thang’. If you blew your wildcard early on in the transfer window, you may be crapping your pants right now trying to figure out how you’re going to offload so many players and get them all back before the inevitable DGW’s roll around. And that’s a perfectly justified response for that situation. As you well know, Arsenal, Man City, Man United and Southampton are all on byes this round. And that’s even more significant now that Southampton have really come on with some strong performances. There will be no captaining Sanchez this week. No relying on...[Read More]

Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News

Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat FA Cup Special FPL News. This weekend sees the 5th round ties for the FA Cup, meaning that it is a FPL-free weekend. However, FPL-free does not signify FPL-irrelevant far from it. If you scan through the fixtures listed below you will see eight Premier League teams are left in the competition and bizarrely all eight have been kept apart in the draw. Now a closer scan of those fixtures will show that all eight top tier teams are firm favourites to win their tie – possibly Leicester being the less obvious. We have banged on about GW28 for weeks now – and this is when we get to find out exactly how disrupted GW28 will be as that is when the 6th round of the FA Cup will be played. At present only three fixtures are ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Question Time

Fantasy Football Question Time Welcome to Fantasy Football Question Time. A break from FPL can lead to many things – DIY, taking the loved one away for a Valentines treat, more productivity at work – or in my case a chance to catch up with some of the wisest brains in the FPL world. Sadly for you that meeting will stay private, but after that I had the opportunity to meet with four other FPL gurus. All are unique in their own special way, yet all provide valuable opinion for you to feed on. Our chat was enjoyable and fun and covered predominantly the current issues surrounding FPL managers – ie the blank game-weeks coming up (GW26 & GW28). We also touched on a couple of other issues. Let me introduce them to you – first up is the lesser-spotted Floydeth, who run...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 25 FPL News: There are just 14 weeks left now. Four or five of those will involve irregular fixtures due to either double or blank GW’s and will probably shape your FPL season. This isn’t one of those. That’s not to say this one isn’t a game changer. Or is it? Just ask Lukaku owners this week. Or indeed non owners… We hope you find your Lukaku this week. It probably won’t be Lukaku though… Doubles, blanks or neither – Lukaku was proof that every week matters. This one begins with Arsenal looking to revive any faint hopes of a title challenge at home to an ever improving Hull. Five games follow at 3pm including the man himself travelling to Middlesbrough. Saturday is roun...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 25 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 25. Things are getting interesting guys – blank game-weeks approaching, subsequent double game-weeks to be announced, mini leagues hotting up, careful planning is required. And talking of hotting up, it’s all kicking off in the Premier League – Arsenal losing twice in a row, Klopp raging at his Scouse flops, Champions Leicester heading for the trap door to the Championship, from hero to zero for Sergio Aguero and has Big Sam lost his Midas touch? All that and more to look forward to as we go into GW25. Our week kicks off at the Emirates where a rejuvenated Hull look to make it three losses on the spin for the Gooners. Six 3pm matches follow as Man United host Watford, goal-hu...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 25 article. Last week for most was defined by whether you owned Lukaku or not. We didn’t. Those that did saw a lovely score, those that captained him are probably still out celebrating. Or getting over the shock of a Rom cap actually paying off. Our score of 57 was above average but brought a red arrow, we lost 7k places and now sit in 39,047th place. For once our midfield let us down, no goals, no assists, nothing. Fortunately our defenders and strikers delivered – clean sheets for Walker and Nyom and an assist for Coleman were valuable additions to the goals of Zlatan and new recruit Carroll. The highlight was Defoe’s brace, the ‘fossil’ as one of our number ref...[Read More]
