Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW8
Don’t panic…
When McGinn is your joint top scorer on 8 points and he isn’t even your captain you could be forgiven for panicking. But, alas, it’s all relative, and most people were in the same boat this week.

Our new signigns Mings and Abraham proved to be unispired choices as they combined for a grand total of 3 points. Elsewhere we had Sterling on 7, Mount, Pieters and Soyuncu all with 6, Salah on 3, Pukki on 2 and Pope on 1. Our captain (Aguero) didn’t even start the game, although he did come on and notch a belated assist.

All that left us on 50 points, 1 below the average, and an inevitable red arrow, our first of the season. It knocked us back about 20k in the ranks and we are now at 61,495th. It happens… don’t panic.

Our GW7 Result…

Let’s go see what was decided this week…

Our GW8 Transfer(s)

Boringly but probably very sensibly we have unanimously decided to hold our transfer this week. As you can see our team looks decently set up for GW8 and having 2 free transfers for after the international break may turn out to be very useful.

To confirm then we have held our free transfer

Captain – Raheem Sterling
With Sterling getting a partial rest in midweek we expect/hope (delete as appropriate) Pep to play him on Sunday, while we do not have the same level of confidence that Aguero will be as lucky! But we live in hope!

With Wolves having faced a long and tricky Thursday evening in Turkey, albeit a winning one, we would expect City to come out flying with or without KDB.

Salah is our vice captain, just in case we get Pepped!

    We aren’t making this deliberately boring but…. it is what it is sometimes and are we aren’t here as a circus act with extravagant transfers to display every week, it’s a real team with the same aspirations as most. And therefore we play like one. As boring as that makes the article sometimes!

    The chaos that is FPL is rife, but at least I’m making gradual progress in my money leagues!

    Pope – Button
    Zinchenko – Robbo – Soyuncu – (Rico) – (Dunk)
    Salah – Sterling – Mason – McGinn – (Dendonker)
    Vardy – Pukki – Abraham
    2FT, 2.1 ITB

    1) Vardy -> PEA; save a FT
    2) Vardy + Dunk -> PEA + Lundstroom
    3) Dunk -> Lundstroom; save a FT and keep Vardy
    4) Other thoughts?

      It’s always tricky when it comes to the keeper. I can’t recommend anyone in particular but my advice for you is to have a good look in the fixtures and stick with whoever you pick, because you don’t want to use another transfer on a GK, and at the end of the day, point difference between them won’t be drastic.

      @Photek. Pope looks good. Leicester are really solid at the back and have great fixtures so Schmeichel is a decent option too.

    Morning all. I have 0 in the bank and 1 ft. I’m thinking to hold and then have 2 after the international break. Good to go?
