Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 36. Oh dear. Little did we think we’d regret selling Negredo so much, but the annoying striker, who single-handedly destroyed our DGW34, trolled us again after we sold him for Gabbiadini. You know the rest, Negredo blanked vs Bournemouth & Sunderland, but scored vs a Stones-less City defence and Gabbia….urgh, can’t even bring myself to type his name. We scored 43pts, below the average of 46 and our rank has fallen to 58,613 from 45,895. We left 24pts on the bench courtesy of Jaku and Siggy, while Nyom, Walker, Zaha and G contributed a point apiece. Thanks to Josh King who made the game-week show some sort of respectability. We’ve held our wildcard this long, but itR...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 36

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 36. It is officially silly season. Alvaro Negredo had a double game-week in which he never scored (despite attracting many a Captain Armband), subsequently he is therefore sold off in his thousands and then scores and assists against Manchester City the very next time out. Huh? Christian Benteke, who many others captained on the double game-week, does so well against Liverpool to justify the pick and then blanks at home to Burnley who themselves prior to the weekend couldn’t win an argument away from home, nail a clean sheet and a 2-0 win. Double Huh? Antonio Valencia owners relished the clean sheet he picked up in the Manchester derby but it is sandwiched by two non-appearances due to “resting”. Oh han...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 36

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 36 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 36. Welcome to the business end of the season lads and lasses – a small DGW gets us under way before the real big one in DGW37! This particular DGW has turned out to be a bit less appealing than most thought it would, as Arsenal and Southampton are both in poor form. Given Southampton’s lackluster performances, I believe there are better options for the armband than from them this week. They seem to be on the beach already and their manager seems fine with it too so forgive me for giving them a wide berth this time. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the other options for this week… Harry Kane (away vs West Ham) [three_fifth padding=”0 20px 0 0″] Embed from Get...[Read More]

MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer

MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer Welcome to MLS GW10 Tips Fantasy Major League Soccer. Let me vent a bit of frustration here for you. When I sit down to write an article, I like to be as prepared as possible. Now maybe you don’t agree with the points I make, but I always feel better knowing that the picks I suggest have at least have some kind of foundation. And to have the foundation to create a good article, you need time to study and write. And we don’t have a ton of study time with another DGW this round. As for time to write? That’s never an issue for me. Writing for me is the easy part (for having incredibly fat fingers and the hands of a caveman, I type like Forrest Gump runs: “like the wind blows”). Honestly, the owners of this site must think that I write for hours on end...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 36

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 36 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 36. We’re very nearly there, the finish line is so very close. With just three more gameweeks to go, and a slew of of DGWs thrown in there, this end to the year will be one of the most eventful we’ve seen in some time. And with all of the doubles available, it’s sort of exciting in the sense that there’s still room for some movement in the ranks in these last days of the league. But with the gluttony of DGWs, there is also the option to choose your teams poorly – the end of the season definitely has the feel that there is a right and wrong answer to the problem of building your team, doesn’t it? You’ll notice that I haven’t included Southampton nor Arsenal in my best bets section this week. I’m not putting th...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 35

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 35 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 35. We came home alright this week, with a fairly respectable score of 63. Not spectacular but enough to see us rise slightly in the rankings by about 4k to 45,895. And this was despite Captain Negredo stinking the place out. What on earth were we thinking?! At least we weren’t alone on that one… he had a modicum of form and certainly the fixtures in his favour. The clue was probably in him being the centre forward for the lowest scoring team out of all 92 league clubs though. Stats, damned lies, and statistics? Sometimes they are what they are for a reason. As for the others they had to pull him out of the proverbial, and most did just that we are pleased to say. Jaku, Walker and Vale...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 35 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 35. It’s non stop isn’t it?! No rest for the wicked they say, but come Tuesday morning we can put our feet up and relive the excitement / stress / heartache of the previous ten days! Until then, we have three more days of footy, another chance to extend your lead, improve your rank or close the gap on your leader. And don’t moan too much, it’s GW35 for goodness sake – you have all summer to rest and you’ll be moaning you have nothing to do. It’s another late deadline this week as GW35 doesn’t have a lunchtime match on Saturday, instead four 3pm matches kick us off – Southampton welcome relegation scramblers Hull, not yet mathematically safe...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 35

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 35 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 35. Well, woe betide the following unlucky players that I’m recommending in this article, as 3 of my last 5 picks were Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sadio Mane and Seamus Coleman, all of whom have since suffered a fairly nasty season-ending injury. There’s not long left of this one now, in fairness, which means time’s running out for us to catch that irritating mate who sits just above us in our mini-leagues: that process has to start with a great choice of captain! There is (in my meagre opinion) no stand-out option for this weekend, which will ensure a wide variety of captains across the boards, quickly followed by plenty of heartache across the FPL lands. Perhaps we should ask Joey Barton who...[Read More]

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 35

FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 35 Welcome to FPL Fixtures Analysis Gameweek 35. I should begin this article by saying that several of the points I make below should have a giant asterisk next to them. Based on how the dates for GW34’s matches were lined out, I’m writing this prior to the conclusion of that week. None of the games from Tuesday, April 25 – Thursday, April 27 have been played at this point, so bear in mind that certain elements of the article may change depending on results or injuries. I’m starting this piece this week with City as my top pick, but if “The Glass Man” Aguero or KDB come up lame on Thursday, you’ll just have to decide how much that changes their power rankings in your own mind. That being said, with so many more DGW teams coming up on the horizon, you ma...[Read More]

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 34

Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 34 Welcome to Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 34. Another week, another small green arrow, but at least it’s better than a red one and we’re back in the top 50k. Woohoo!! Our score of 57 was 11 better than the average of 46, so we have to be fairly happy with that. Our new recruits had mixed weeks – Kane kicked us off with a 12 point haul and how close we were to captaining him – while Zaha did nowt despite Palace scoring two at home to Leicester. Never mind, the Zaha purchase was with this week’s double game-week in mind so he best be saving his points for this week. Elsewhere, Valencia contributed a surprise clean vs Chelsea, Walker made a guest appearance for Spurs for another clean sheet, Eriksen made an assi...[Read More]

Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 34 Welcome to Around the Grounds FPL Team News Gameweek 34. The fun begins! Not long now folks, just about 24 hours until DGW34 kicks off, a true football feast that runs from Saturday until Thursday and includes DGWs for Crystal Palace, Boro and Man Utd. Weeks of plannning have been taking place for this – the business end of the season with so much still up for grabs. Chelsea’s lead at the top has been cut to 4pts, the scrap at the bottom between Hull and Swansea looks like going the distance, the Top 4 is far from certain and if all that is not enough we also have the FA Cup semi-finals taking place this weekend between Chelsea and Spurs and Man City and Arsenal. It’s relentless, it’s non-stop, it’s action stations,...[Read More]

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 34

Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 34 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Tips Gameweek 34. Init messaged me at the weekend to double check I was still ok to write this week’s article. To which I replied ‘of course’. I then gave it some thought and wished I’d said I was busy. This must be the dullest double game-week in living memory. Somebody wake me up when it’s over! While the double may be boring the league itself has suddenly got a lot more interesting with the gap between Chelsea and Spurs now down to four points. This is great news for us fantasy managers as it looks like the battle between the two sides will go to the wire meaning we don’t need to worry about rotation or their respective players switching off. This week rather than follow my usual format of tipping part...[Read More]
