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

    I am happy with my team, anyone have advice or views on any changes or recommendations?

      Defense may not be any team’s strong suit after the long lay off. Solid team.

      As ever, your team is beyond reproach, Terminator.

      Anyhow, I’ll be around to help those looking for a mother type or a father type to blow their noses or dry away their tears – or to spank them when they’ve been naughty.

      And we all know how naughty you can be sometimes.

    Oh hi everyone – you’re all over here on this article are you? As per usual, I left a comment on another page (the Bundesliga article) – always in the wrong room at the wrong time! I’m so glad to be back, but am unable to repeat my previous ramble of 30 minutes ago – it exhausted me! Kindest regards to you all, smile

    Does this mean that this is thw only DGW, My heads fried :big-lol:

    • 239.1

      I’d imagine so but I think we just have to wait and see.

    • 239.2
      Kralin says:

      What’s happened has turned the game on its head and the seeming lack of DGW – we’ll see about that, though, given the volume of games to be played in a relatively short space of time – is a pain to those of us trying to close in on mini-leagues, OR etc.

      However the whole thing is going to be pretty weird – Liverpool should be able to treat this as an extended and pretty chilled out pre-season, keeping everyone nice and fresh for 20/21 (and presumably don’t need to worry now about AFCON 2021). The rest will be huffing and puffing for European places / relegation etc.

      I’m not quite in the zone yet. In the UK the mistakes of March seem to have come round again, like the eternal recurrence, so the social backdrop to the return of the league could be pretty fraught.

      • Hi Kralin, hope you are well. I’m fairly convinced that was is happening right now will come full circle and bite us all in the ass again. To give a mini snapshot I’m sat in my garden right now and the usual Saturday night garden parties are clearly in full flow. And these are not families who live together, I can’t see them but I can hear them and actually recognise a good few usual voices. I’d like to think they are all sat apart but I very much doubt it. And I live in a nice area with generally nice, respectable and responsible people. I hate to think what is going on elsewhere. And we’re expected to go out and mingle with these people again? Fck that, quite frankly!

        I’ve actually decided to take a few weeks off work, mainly because of the above, and I think it’s a timely decision whilst we see how this transpires for a bit.

        • Kralin says:

          I saw some nightmarish images of people queueing, not many in masks, to get into Ikea – a bad enough experience at the best of times – and I wondered slightly at the sanity of our politicians in enabling this.

          We are living in a dystopian novel at the moment.

        • That pretty much sums up why I’ve forced myself to finally stay in for a bit. Been (stuck) in for over a week now, thankfully, and I’ve got about a week left. Albeit my wife returns to full time teaching tomorrow so we’ll see what that experience brings (home)……..

      The FA Cup QFs and SFs are scheduled to be played at weekends with league matches so the teams involved there will have their league matches postponed, so we’re probably getting multiple DGWs

    Finishing this season will be a farce. Judging by what is happening in the Bundesliga, don’t expect much fun. In Germany teams are allowed to play their games at home ground when that is scheduled, but without the crowd it means nothing. Since the return, out of 32 fixtures only 6 have won at home. Here in England playing at neutral grounds it will make it even more weird.
    As for the FPL, I mentioned it before. With 5 substitutions allowed the game should be temporary redesign and include all points from the bench as many players will have reduced playing time and subsequently more others will have a dip at it.

    • 240.1
      Kralin says:

      I daresay I’ll get into it once I see the fixtures, etc – and I’ve had one or two slightly out of focus thoughts about that initial DGW – but it all seems faintly unreal at the moment.

      I didn’t know about there being five subs.

      I’m relieved that the chips I’d hoarded still count for something.

    • 240.2

      I think I’ll probably take the rest of this ‘season’ with a pinch of salt in all honesty. I was sort of excited about it the other day but on reflection, especially as you say about what we are witnessing in the Bundesliga, and what we discussed earlier about the subs, I agree that it’s looking like a bit of a farce.

      Looks like the games and the ‘GW’s’ will all run into each other too so no idea how we plan any articles around that scenario. We may have to just put up a massively encompassing Live Match Chat and crack on with it between us all in the comments. Which is essentially what we have done for the last 10 weeks I suppose!

      Either way I’m chilled about it and will probably just take another week to see how things pan out properly. As they will no doubt change again.

      • Kop Warrior says:

        We don’t believe you! :hippo:

      • Smash says:

        I kind of agree. I expect there will be games of some sort on every day. Not many double game weeks just games all over the place

        • Kralin says:

          I think it’s going to be quite tough to make up ground (in terms of fantasy). Things will not be as normal and there isn’t much time nor room for manouevre.

          I’m thinking about playing the FH for whatever GW it is that starts us off – the DGW. Try to get off to a strong start (and not saddle myself with three City players thereafter. Just go for three for the DGW).

      KI says:

      I think someone else pointed this out-much earlier. Five subs means you really want a working bench.
