We’re the wallies who sold Ollie

Welcome to FF247 Site Team GW24

Could have been better could have been worse. That’s probably the best thing we can say about GW23, and that’s being kind! We went into Monday’s game on 24pts and things were looking grim. It’s good to be somewhat introspective mid-game week but the advice I need to follow myself is to not get too hung up on something that is not yet over. That was the case for us with the 32pts we picked up from our Man City assets (thanks Phil!) making what was still a bad game week (in terms of overall points and a dreaded arrow), that little less painful.

We only have ourselves to blame. I say that, but 3/6 members of the site team did vote against selling Watkins, however, it’s a democracy and we celebrate the wins collectively, so we also by proxy have to share responsibility when things don’t go our way. That said, Watkins’ 18-pointer stung, made worse by the fact we had two FTs and didn’t actually need to sell him to facilitate the returning robot. We move on.

3 points from our back 4 had us on the back foot, blanks for Solanke, Jota and Alvarez compounded our demise. Saka (9pts) and Palmer (8pts) afforded us some level of respectability but ending the Sunday evening with 24pts felt anything but!

Roll on Monday night football and all eyes turned to our captain, could Haaland outscore Watkins? Would KDB make us weep? Would Foden even start? We got lucky with all 3 of our Citezens making the cut. We were somewhat fortunate that KDB didn’t hurt us too much, and whist Haaland didn’t even come close to Watkins, we’ll take his 10pts gladly. We can, of course, be a little forgiving, because whilst Alvarez blanked, Phil Foden single-handedly saved our bacon with a hattrick and 20pts haul. What a guy. So, there you have it. In the end we finished on 56pts, one point behind the average (57pts) and a red arrow that dropped us from 1,686 to 6,588. As I said, it could have been worse. We’re very aware that moaning about rank drops when you’re still inside the top 10k is very uncool. We like to think we’re better than that.

So, all I will say, if like us you had a bad week, regardless of your overall rank or mini-league position, it’s worth remembering that if you can drop so far in a single game week, next week you might do the opposite. With that we’re ready to dust ourselves down, get back on the horse and look forward to the coming week and of course, the doubles and blanks that can make or break your season!

Our Gameweek 23 Result

We have £0.6m in the bank and 2 free transfers to use ahead of GW24. Let’s go see what was decided….

Our G24 Transfer(s)

We had a few options this week. Doughty (£4.6m) was considered for the injured Konsa, worryingly one unnamed member didn’t even know who he was. Said member is doing better than me though, so what do I know? Once acquainted with the flying Luton fullback the unnamed member did suggest Saliba to Doughty to facilitate a move for Toney next week but when it went to vote there was a clear winner. 4 members raised their thumbs in favour of Solanke to Darwin, the other 2 didn’t vote in what I can only assume is a silent protest against the Post-loving Red’s striker.

With that, all that was left was to choose our captain and which of our front 8 to bench. In a surprise to at least one of us, Jota won the captaincy poll against Haaland 4 votes to 2 with the robot getting the VC just in case. Bowen is the unlucky attacker to miss out and takes up the first spot on our bench should we need him!

To confirm then we have SOLD Solanke and BOUGHT Darwin

Captain – Jota

Well, sort of… Drafthound have changed their line-up approach this season and what it means for us is that we are no longer able to display a live feed of it on here due to some technical difficulties. That said, what they have done looks great and is still only a click away so if you want to access those they are HERE

    How are people planning to get Salah back if he is back next week?

    Depends a bit on your strategy for the upcoming DGWs/BGWs, but I like the look of Barkley, for form and fixtures.

    Can I get some opinions please? I’m trying to navigate the upcoming DGW/BGWs without using chips, which is hurting my head! Which of these do you like? Got 1FT and 0.6 ITB.

    1) Roll the FT
    2) Gorden to Barkley (gives me more DGW players but loses a valuable BGW26 player)
    3) Bowen to Foden (attacks the DGW but loses a valuable BGW29 player)
    4) Livra to Gvardiol (gives me more DGW players but doesn’t help BGW29)
    5) Something I’m not seeing??

    Used the FT to replace Gordon with Jota.
    Do I take a hit and do Darwin-Watkins?

    Hey people. Hope all is well.
    Like many of us, am experiencing ‘benching headaches’.
    Dunno who to leave aside this week with Haaland, Darwin, Tony, KDB, Phoden, Jota, Palmer, Richo, TAA, Gabs, Estup, Evans and Branthwaite!
    Tempted to leave out Palmer, but I remember the 2 times when he punished me for that! Help! smile

      benching three of those?? I’d love to be playing Palmer… and benching 4 defenders…. that’s tough… maybe some early City team news tomorrow could help.. if KDB or Foden are on their bench, I’d probably put them on my bench too… or if there’s news that Darwin is sick……

      Reg83 says:

      Well the last 2 can be easily benched. Is evans the manu defender? Probably bench Toney of the front 8.

      • AJW says:

        Thanks guys.
        Just bought Toney. Dunno – was thinking of Palmer, but that’s setting myself up for a big dumping isn’t it?

        • AJW says:

          Yeah hopefully we hear that Foden is being given a rest! That’d be my preferred option. smile
          Evans is indeed the sh**e Utd old age pensioner of a defender. Why not change him for a 3.9 Def and do a BB you ask?
