  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 16

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 16 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 16. It’s a quick turnaround this week and in terms of ‘tips’ this week if you read no further, or indeed read nothing else this week, do yourself a favour and read the next sentence only. The deadline for GW16 is Tuesday 13th December at 6.45pm UK time. Many won’t realise or even be aware of it. We always see posts or tweets after a midweek deadline from people saying they didn’t know or forgot. Let’s just hope that happens in your mini league! Lots of people walking around their offices this week whistling quietly and touching their nose. And then asking very loudly who their co-worker captained ‘this week’, two minutes after the deadline. Sly lot you. An...[Read More]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 15 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 15 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 15 FPL News: GW15 begins with Watford hosting Everton at lunchtime on Saturday. What are you having for lunch? Whatever it is, it’ll probably be more exciting than this will be. Sorry to start you off on a downer but we didn’t pick the televised fixtures. After that we have four 3pm games, the most notable of which, in terms of FPL, is probably Sanchez hosting Stoke. Saturday closes out with a Kun-less Man City visiting a clueless Leicester. Sunday begins with either Chelsea hammering West Brom or West Brom making our Sunday boring with a shutout. United and Spurs do battle after that, as do the Saints and ‘Boro. Klopp sees the week out when his lot look to hammer the Hammers Saturday 10th December 1...[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]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15. You can’t always play it safe. Sometimes those things with really long odds actually happen. I was just standing there, on a hot and muggy summer’s night, minding my own business. Wet and naked. Just me and one other guy. I never did catch his name. Which seems strange to me now I think about it. Especially given that he was wet and naked too. Anyway, there we were, the sole occupants of a large outdoors communal shower block in a summer camp in Massachusetts. The young campers were tucked up in bed and another counselor and I were showering after using the gym. It was about 9pm at night and it was raining like I had never seen before. Think UK storms, multiplied by 100. Crazy rain...[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]

Live Match Chat Gameweek 14 FPL News

Live Match Chat Gameweek 14 FPL News Welcome to Live Match Chat Gameweek 14 FPL News: Oh dearie me, look what we start the game-week with? ‘A Clash of the Cash’ no less. Two continental firebrand managers at the top of their game and two title contenders going head-to-head. Doesn’t get much juicier than this really. Cue the boring 0-0. Unless Stones plays… in which case captain Costa. 3pm then brings us five games, most notably Pardew’s last, if he makes it there at all, and Spurs entertaining Swansea in a much anticipated goal fest. Cue the 0-0. Yet another London derby sees Saturday out as Arsenal visit West Ham in what should be an entertaining encounter. Sunday sees a Coutinho-less Liverpool try to adjust to life without him as they visit a Bournemouth sid...[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 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]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 14. Whether you’re superstitious or not, the number 13 when it came to fantasy football was unlucky for a good number of people. Being Gameweek 13, those who captained Coutinho, for example, thinking he was going to blow Sunderland out of the park, are no doubt licking their wounds. There also seems to be an influx of injuries at the moment, too, with the likes of Holebas, Giroud, Heaton, Shawcross, Firmino and Sterling joining a growing list that also features Lallana, Bellerin and Friend. You could say the past few weeks have been a bit reminiscent of last season. Players that barely feature in many teams have suddenly exploded into life, leaving a lot of players scratching their head and wondering ho...[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]
