Oh b*llocks, is it?!

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GWX. No, this isn’t an April Fools Day joke, we are actually publishing a Site Team article! Why? Well, because we meant to do one two weeks ago, and then again last week also, but we didn’t, for reasons which we shall expand on later. Perhaps also it is because we are a bit bored, and simply not used to having a break. But also it is to remind you of a few key FPL related things, which may have slipped your mind, understandably.

We shall however begin with an update of our GW29 performance, at least for some semblence of normality, if nothing else. Looking back at it, into what seems like a lifetime ago now, we evidently got a bit shafted with the DGW postponment having brought in Saka and Aubameyang (as captain) specifically for it, and having held onto KDB too. We’ll spare you the horror story of the rest but other than Salah getting a goal we didn’t have a single other player score above 3 points. And we had some good players, with decent fixtures. When your luck is out and all that… It looks like it meant quite a fall in the rankings too, in fact we managed to double our rank from about 82k to 164,492nd.

Onto the two article titles then..

No, this wasn’t a typo. It’s more because we have no idea when the season will restart, of course, but also less of an idea how. The fact that FPL Towers decided that we could keep making transfers throughout this ‘hiatus’ seemed to be because they presumed it would restart at a later GW. Which now looks less than likely. What is perhaps now more probable is that (if anything) there will be some sort of crammed in mini-tournament style period of about 6 weeks where they will attempt to finish the season. Re-starting at the GW30 cut-off seems the most likely scenario. How FPL deals with that is another matter, given their above stance. Will they simply reset us and ask us to forget all the interim transfers? Anything is possible. But for now we have been asked to crack on regardless, and so we have…

‘Oh, bollocks’, etc
This is a reference to our lack of a recent article. The reality is that we did intend to do one prior to GW31 and we did indeed have a meeting to discuss our phantomtransfers. Only for someone to point out in the midst of said meeting that the deadline had already passed as it was a Friday night one, and not as we all assumed a normal Saturday one! So that was one transfer down the drain. Not that we feel this will matter particularly, as it looks like we will have more than we can possibly use before proceedings get back under way.

And so we sat down in the middle of last week for another meeting… only to discover half way through that one that it was indeed an International Break, as such, and that there was no planned deadline for another week! Pay more attention, we must. Reinstante the Countdown Timer, we have…

Our GW32 Transfer(s)
Crack on regardles, we do. And we have formulated something of a mini-plan. So we thought we would share this with you, for a lack of anything else to actually say at this moment in time!

Bruno Fernandes seems to be our main missing jigsaw piece right now and so we have decided to prioritise him, along with a whole other raft of minor surgeries which we hope shall put our squad in better shape, should this be required as and when To accommodate Bruno this week we have decided to do away with our double Liverpool defence, an idea that was beginning to be in vogue around about GW29…

Beyond this we are looking at something like Saka to Mount and possibly Ings to DCL, but we shall see.

To confirm then we have SOLD Andy Robertson & James Maddison and BOUGHT Aaron Wan-Bissaka & Bruno Fernandes

Captain – Boris Johnson

    If it were my team I would transfer out Johnson. He’s underachieving and I expect more from someone of his price bracket

    Serious deflection tactics from Matt Hancock today when he suggested the PL footballers should take a pay cut!!

      I’ve stayed away from those conferences but saw that on C4 News later. I got a sense he was fed the line and was playing to the gallery. I also got a sense that he struggled with physically representing the number three.

      It’s always good to see the cream rise to the top.

      • Kop Warrior says:

        He was certainly playing to the gallery. I haven’t been particularly impressed by Hancock or any other member of the British government during the current crisis. Tbh, it’s rare I’m ever impressed by a politician. However, I do believe our own government have handled the situation quite well.

        • Kralin says:

          Seriously?

          It was interesting yesterday seeing the media start to raise eyebrows / the penny dropping when it emerged that so few NHS staff had been tested and the 30,000 new ventilators was in fact 30 new ventilators etc.

          But yeah, politicians are a rum bunch and the journos that give us the news don’t seem much better. Out of curiosity I look at what people at both ends of the spectrum, left and right, have to say. The stuff in the middle is intellectually dishonest, as far as I can see. Hopeless.

          I’m mainly looking at what the docs, both front line and higher up, are saying about the debacle and indeed the virus itself. That’s pretty interesting and they rely on evidence and often candour rather than bullshit. There’s been a lot of racist stuff coming out and the docs counter that pretty well in that most of the academic work and research about the virus has been coming from China.

        • Kop Warrior says:

          Seriously. I think.

        • Kop you should probably qualify that for Kralin in so much as I think you are referring to the Irish government.

      • Stone Frog says:

        Some of the early strategy briefings may not age well.
