FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12
Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12. Hmmmm, our slide into mediocrity accelerated in GW11 as we scored 43pts (vs an average of 44) which was a GW rank of 2,847,986, giving us a new global rank of 406,870. Bizarrely this was the second clean sheet in a row for Alonso and Chelsea – clearly his success does not reflect to us – when we score well he doesn’t, when he does we don’t. We are clearly not meant to be together. Our City trio of Sterling, Silva and Jesus scored 5 each which is symmetrically pleasing, while Richarlison scored again and would have contributed more if Young Tom had not missed the penalty that our Brazilian hero won.
The rest were rubbish – Kane (c) was another Wembley disaster – a true Englishman indeed. It’s been a long fortnight as the team licks its wounds and tries to do away with Alonso. Sadly, at the time of writing, all our squad remain intact. And Alonso is grinning from ear to ear. The ****.
Last weeks ‘result’…
This week we’re banking our transfer
The only transfer which was discussed at any stage during the current break was Ben Davies to Phil Jones. With the news that Jose Mourinho,
the same Jose Mourinho who doesn’t talk about injured players, was furious over England’s treatment of Phil Jones and that as a result Jones is set to miss the Newcastle game we’ve shelved that idea. Knowing our luck, Jonesy will start this weekend and score! We don’t actually believe a word Jose says and he is clearly being a bit of a ‘told you so t*t’ here but on the basis that he is unlikely to contradict himself in the press conference we will play and safe and not buy him.
The rest of the team pretty much picks itself. It’s looking a little reliant on surviving Man City rotation but we are willing to risk that this week with Silva being almost nailed on anyway and Sterling having had a convenient international break injury / rest (delete as you see fit to believe) and Jesus hasn’t had his usual long haul flights to deal with. And may well benefit from any Kun uncertainty. Davies remains our risky pick but it’s come what may with that one. The wildcard stays intact for another week then. We will use it one week, we promise!
The team in full
And so this is how we line up ahead of GW12…
Our Captain is Harry Kane
No one else got a vote. However, after scrolling back through our inspiring WhatsApp chat it would appear that only three of us actually voted! Not that this matters as with three votes Kane had it won. Given Kane’s goalscoring form away from home our choice will hardly come as a surprise. He’s also scored six times in the last five league encounters between the two sides.
