Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 11 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 11. Ah look at you lot getting all excited over one great week of scoring last time out. Well the proof they say, will be in the pudding, so let’s see if you can pull out the stops again and reproduce last week’s epic scores. It’s a strange game-week is GW11 – no Friday match, no Saturday lunchtime game either, not even any Monday Night Football – it’s all about Saturday and Sunday, almost a throw-back to the 80’s. The Saturday 3pm matches sees Moyesie Livin’ on a Prayer as Sunderland go to Bournemouth, Tom Heaton’s issues a Take On Me challenge to Palace strikers as Burnley visit Selhurst, Man City host Boro with Sergio Aguero reminding FPL managers Don’t You Forget About Me, 3 wins in a row ...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 11 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 11 article. If we said that six of our team all scored 3 points or less this week then you’d maybe expect that this would then lead onto a story of sorrow and despair. It just goes to show what having a minority of decent performers can actually produce though as we managed a fairly respectable 79 with a load of hallowed green arrows in all the right places. Cech, Walker, Pieters, Sterling, Capoue and Deeney are the players doing the walk of shame. Holebas, Firmino, Sanchez, Aguero and Lukaku can all hold their heads high, if they can shoulder the weight of our team. They carried us through to a small rise in the rankings from 57k to 39k. It’s not ground breaking but at this stage ...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 11

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 11.This time of year is one of change here in the UK – the temperatures start to fall and the nights draw in. We celebrate Halloween, Diwali and Bonfire Night and then we look to our fantasy football teams and wonder if, they too, need to go through a change. Talking of Halloween, it’s fair to say it was a bit of a horror show if you didn’t captain the likes of Sanchez, Aguero or even Lukaku. A section of managers I unfortunately was in. I went for Troy Deeney and, well, after a few beers on a Saturday night, he and Capoue are no longer in Swirly FC for a very rare four-point hit. Not that I condone drunken fantasy football tactics / transfer rage or even four-point hits, of course. I hope, at least, th...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 11. Lists. They’re all over the internet. The problem is that most of them start with a few banal ‘under the radar’ choices that no-one cares about, ultimately ascending to a stonkingly obvious no.1; to wit, “Top 10 Hated Star Wars Characters”; “2001’s Most Shocking Incidents”; and “The Best 5 Football Management Simulators for your PC.” Discussing the lists’ also-rans is rarely little more than a thinly veiled ego-stroking exercise for the compiler to constipate the reader with unnecessary information in an overly verbose and periphrastic manner. If you’re reading this, then perhaps you like lists; or maybe you...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 11 2016-17

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek11 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 11 2016-17. I think we can all agree that this last week went a little more according to the script that we all had in our heads when this season started. Arsenal, Liverpool, and Man City all getting 4 goals in easy wins? Check. Eden Hazard attacking the ball and looking like a true superstar? Check. Jose Mourinho completely making a mess of things? Check. After the crazy season last year, it’s almost nice, comforting even, to be back in a predictable cycle within the Premier League. Sure, we’ll still root for that underdog team to make a bid for Top 4, and we’ll still root for a surprise promotion team to surpass expectations in their first year up; but when it comes to fantasy purposes, we have no qualms w...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10 Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 10 article. GW9 was one of the dullest game-weeks in history – it was a game-week dominated in the main by clean sheets for a change and we were fortunate enough to gain a clean sweep of them, courtesy of Cech, Walker, Holebas and Pieters. The only other contributions to our score were assists for Firmino and Lukaku and yet we scored 48pts, 6pts above the average of 42 and saw us climb to a ranking of 57,577. Exciting stuff. Another captain failure for Alexis was slightly compensated by Kun scoring just a solitary point on Sunday, so things could have been worse. All in all, we probably dodged a bullet given our defensive performance. Transfer: Rasford to Deeney We contemplated a whole r...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 10 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 10. Another week, another week to disappoint and deflate – or as so many are feeling after a rough few weeks which has seen captain choices fail and regular names not delivering. And so onto game-week 10 and we kick off at the Stadium of Light where Sunderland host Arsenal in the lunchtime match. Five 3pm matches follow as Man United aim to bounce back from last week’s nightmare at Chelsea as they host Burnley, Boro face Bournemouth, Spurs welcome the Champion Foxes, Hull go to Watford and West Brom tackle Man City. Liverpool again appear in front of the cameras as they face Palace under the lights at Selhurst… oh the memories. Sunday sees two matches – firstly Everton ...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 10. Oh dear! Another one of those weeks. The masses log in to see how their expensively assembled array of fantasy superstars have fared, only to see an array of red arrows and a whole lot of not much in terms of points next to the names of their chosen ones. Time to reassess or time to be stubborn and dig down? Possibly a bit of both. Frustrating though isn’t it?! You’ve done the due diligence and checked the form and fixtures of everyone involved and have landed on a grand plan. Now you just need the pieces to fall into place. But sometimes they don’t, for whatever reason. We had this at the beginning of last season too and it resulted in a good many fantasy managers tearing their ha...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 10. Considering the fact that we are already 9 weeks into the season now is probably the time when we start to take our captain picks even more serious than before! Those of us who have struggled throughout the opening game-weeks are sticking to the excuse that to date we haven’t taken things seriously. How difficult it is to get our capo right? Let’s just take a quick look at the highest three scorers in each of the past 3 game-weeks. GW9 – Shaqiri 15pts – Cahill 14pts – Reid 14pts GW8 – Stanislas 21pts – Allen 16pts – Holebas 15pts GW7 – Koscielny 15pts – Firmino 12pts – Costa 12pts So as you can see it’s not that easy to forecast...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek10 2016-17

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek10 2016-17 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 10 2016-17. I went back and reread my previous week’s Fixtures article this morning. It’s usually something I do with a bit of trepidation, because once those picks are locked in, there’s really no turning back. Once the article is published, I’m either going to be right or wrong on those picks, and I just have to live with the shame if I really messed up. I’m usually OK with a single missed pick – after all, not everything is supposed to turn out 100% correct (if it did, I’d be a millionaire sports bettor right now). And I have to say, looking at the picks last week, even knowing how those matches played out, I’m not sure I could honestly say that I wouldn’t make the same picks again if I had to do it...[Read More]
