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 refer to him, continues to reward our faith in the old boy.
Transfer for GW25 – No transfer
After a short discussion it was decided to hold our transfer, thus having 2 free transfers at our disposal for GW26, by which time we will know who blanks and who doesn’t in GW28. There were a couple of transfers suggested early on but they were quickly rebuffed as either being ‘duller than dull’ (Pickford to Jaku was suggested) or ‘pointless and ridiculous’ (Cech to Jaku was suggested!). We were simply beginning to think that someone had mistakenly put a tenner on Jaku as first goalscorer this week! We are relying on West Ham’s medical staff patching up Andy Carroll after Slaven Bilic said his striker has missed training all week after suffering a minor groin injury at Southampton last weekend. So very boring, but there you go – hopefully we will benefit from the extra transfer next week as we build up to GW28. That’s unless Andy is ruled out unexpectedly and definitely on Friday, at which point we may make a late call and will post in the comments if we do but we think it is highly unlikely.
THE NEW TEAM IN FULL FOR GW 25
Our Captain is Zlatan Ibrahimovic
This turned into a straight fight between Zlatan (home vs Watford) and Alexis (home to Hull), but not before the committee were flabbergated to here one of our number make probably the most outrageous Captain suggestion ever – Andy Carroll. After much hilarity, disbelief and rib-rubbing Zlatan come out the winner with poor old Andy not even making vice captain – that honour goes to Alexis if Zlatan goes AWOL at the weekend.
