screenshot_150Welcome to the Fantasy Football 247 Site Team Gameweek 9 article. One Jose Holebas, there’s only one Jose Holebas, one Jose Holebas! We’ll come back to our favourite Greek in a moment. With the average score for GW8 being 39pts it’s safe to suggest that we weren’t the only ones to have a shocker. We ended up with 45pts which resulted in a red arrow dropping us to 66,878 in the rankings. To be honest it could have been worse. Our captain, a certain Sergio Aguero finished the gameweek on a minus score thanks to his penalty miss. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time our captain has contributed a negative score. So back to Holebas. Thanks to a goal, a clean sheet and three baps he finished with 15pts which was a massive 33% of our total. Elsewhere our new signing Adam Smith picked up 5pts while Lukaku & Sanchez weighed in with a goal and an assist. As for the rest, the less said the better. And so we bid farewell to GW8 and move on to GW9.

Transfer: Leighton Baines OUT – Erik Pieters IN
This wasn’t so much our usual group argument, more like a family friendly creche snooze fest in the end. We had many questions to address –

Sterling to Walcott?
Yes it makes sense in terms of Wally… But should we really be selling Sterling with his fixtures?
Probably not.

Do we really want Rashford this week?
Probably not… But look at his next two games

Should we not do something about Capoue / Fletcher?
Yes! But probably not this week.

An Arsenal defender would be ideal..
Of course, but we can’t afford one

Do Wally in for Sterling then?
Nice in theory…

Anyway, repeat that cycle about 4 times and you’ll see why we ended up with both the most boring transfer we could come up with and why we were all asleep come the end of it!

Pieters with his good fixtures and less than reliable team comes in for Baines with his slightly worse fixtures and less than reliable legs / health.

Our captain is Alexis Sanchez and our vice captain is Sergio Aguero.
When we all finally woke up from the Pieters induced sleep we did a good impression of still caring and Alexis was voted for as captain by a unanimous choice. No reasons were either asked for or given, it just felt the right thing to do given his form and Arsenal’s as opposed to the alternatives.

If anyone is interested in following the site teams progress then you can do so here and we wish you all the best of luck this week with your own teams.

    HELP HELP… after playing my best possible squad for 3 weeks.. I have achieved nothing extraordinary…48 points this week…better than average..the only thing to be happy about..apart from the fact that for 3 straight game weeks now my defence has saved my ass big time.
    I have 2 free transfers, .3m in bank…froster 5m,son7.7m….these are the 2 transfers I want to do…I already have Walcott,coutinho,sterling…I see 2 straight choices…1)downgrade froster to 4.5m keeper..and use extra.5m to get firmino in place of son…then who should be this keeper 2)get de gae and play Stanislas..or which mf is better..3) hoping that u guys will give me a great insight. Rock on FF247.
