screenshot_165Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 12 article. Oh dear, 4 points below the average last week with 48 in total in what turned out to be a bit of a disaster all round with key players being rested (Sterling) and others coming up with minus points (Holebas, -2, thanks). And with both him and Smith getting themselves suspended for this week we are in a bit of a mess all of a sudden! Last week our entire defence scored just 5 points, Firmino saved our midfield blushes, and probably our gameweek with 15 but the other 3 mids got us just 7. Up top Austin and Kun pitched in with a goal each but in all it just wasn’t good enough. Overall we fell a good few places and currently find ourselves in 64,574th place, a fall of approximately 25k. Not good but not disastrous, and certainly retrievable. We wisely resisted the temptation to do any early transfers though as we wanted to see how the international break would further decimate us! Apart from the mini Sanchez scare we may have fared ok out of it. Let’s see how we decided to tackle this week then, with a distinct lack of available defenders and just 1 free transfer and £0.7m available to fix the issue…

Transfer #1: Smith to Nyom
With Amat sat doing nothing short of not much he would have been the obvious candidate to leave but we needed to consider the overall strategy, and budget wise shifting one of Smith or Holebas made more sense. Smith got the shove given his fixtures ahead. The whole deal was based upon next weeks potential transfer though as we are oogling Coutinho ahead of Sunderland at home. Quite how we don’t yet own him is anybody’s guess but we don’t and we plan to!



Our Captain is Sergio Aguero
Little explanation is needed here. Would you be surprised to log in after the event and find he destroyed Palace? No. Captain then.

    1 FT, keep the transfer this week or bring in Kdb/Hazard for Sanchez?

    Morning all, which 3 to play out of, Williams, Pieters. Alonso, McAuley, Kingsley is on the bench.

    Morning guys hope you’re all well!
    How’s my defence selection looking? Evans in for anyone?
    Thinking of Haz for cappo but will probably panic switch to Aguero at 11.29!

    Any moves you would make on top of Smith/Holebas to Evans? Benteke to Defoe/Austin? Coutinho to Hazard? or just do the one FT and move onto next week?

      Amat to Nyom? I think it helps to have a stronger bench with the Christmas fixtures coming up

      No need for other moves

      I wouldn’t ditch Coutinho. I would keep all the Pool players you can for the next few weeks. Austin’s fixtures don’t look great in the next 3. Just switch out Smith and move on to next week. You’ll have to pray Hazard doesn’t go crazy today!

    Morning all,

    Simple question – Pickford or Heaton?
