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..

GWX
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

    Afternoon lads. It looks like no one is really prepared for the DGW so I’m not feeling too bad about my team even though it is bad!

    What would people prefer they do? Unlimited transfers? Just restart as normal? What is most ‘fair’?

    • 253.1

      How you living Matt?

      If everyone gets free transfers to start off then I’ll set up this and then Wildcard.

      If they don’t then I’ll Free Hit to get this then play on the following week with my team as it is just now.

      All this on the assumption that there is only one DGW – the first.

      • MattX says:

        Hey GP. All good here. We are actually allowed travel around our county from Monday so things are looking up! How about yourself?

        I was thinking of doing similar as yourself. I can see a lot of weird results being thrown up if the Bundesliga is anything to go by.

        I was looking at twitter the other day and I’m nearly certain I read Laporte wouldn’t be available for the DGW? I could be completely wrong though.

        • Wife and I still having to work from home AND home school the kids. Tricky.

          Laporte is any City defender there really.
          Cheers.

        • MattX says:

          Oh God! Have the school’s not returned in Scotland too or was it just England?

          Yeah that’s what I would be doing too!

        • Nope, still running riot at home Matt.

          Kill me.

        • MattX says:

          I’ll check and see if Elle does contract killings! :biggun:

        • Elleffcee says:

          Just to let you know Matt, i have shot someone before.

        • Kralin says:

          God, I hope you (Elleffcee) are spoofing and are talking about a video game or something. A dream or nightmare you once had. A scene from a film gathered into your own false memory.

          Or have you served your time for the offence (where?). Or maybe you are currently detained at HM leisure, somewhere, sat in a featureless cell with several others – maybe they are all fantasy managers?

          If not, maybe make it easy for us and HMP Service and type out a full confession and let’s be having you.

        • He didn’t say he got caught for it!

        • Kralin says:

          He – or she? – has put you in a tricky position. Someone on site confessing to a serious criminal offence. This isn’t nicking a copy of The Beano from WHSmiths.

          But maybe he or she has served their time for the offence.

          Or perhaps it was all in the line of duty.

        • He’s definitely a ‘he’, I’ve literally sat in his front room and had a coffee with him*!

          As for tricky, not really. It’s conjecture at best and couldn’t be more vague, as you say yourself.

          *I saw no dead bodies in the room or indeed anyone who looked like they had been shot.

          I must admit I was a bit concerned though when I saw Miss Scarlett slope away to their Billiard room with a candlestick.

        • Kralin says:

          But did you lever up the floorboards?

          I hope you were served Chagga coffee whilst at billiards.

          Maybe it was a vampire shot with a silver bullet. Maybe E is telling us in his own modest way that he saved humanity.

        • Always feels a bit rude when you go to someone’s house for the first time and start crow-barring up their floorboards! Remind me never to invite you round for coffee! :rofl:

        • Elleffcee says:

          Not fooling Kralin.

    I looked for my “old” PL team, but could not find the button. Could only see a button for pts… Is this only my side or is this how it is set up for now?
    Not too long to go till games start (hopefully)…anyone know when we will see our teams and know what we can do with them?
    Thanks

    Let’s just hope that these mass protests in the last couple of days don’t increase the R of infections because we might never see the restart of the EPL season :no:

    They are taking their time in announcing the next steps in FPL aren’t they

      Tornado says:

      Indeed! It is really frustrating, as I’ve been doing 1 FT almost every week in order to set my team up for the remaining fixtures. I now start thinking that it was all for nothing, especially if there are unlimited FT and this DGW is most likely to be the only/biggest DGW.

      • Smash says:

        Yeah have to admit I’m expecting unlimited transfers. This will almost certainly be only double. Kind of just want to know one way or the other

        • Tornado says:

          If it is unlimited FT, I am going 3 Man C, 2 Arsenal, 3 SHU, 1/2 Villa + keeping the ones with gained value. Probably BB this week and then WC next week.

          I guess we are about to find out…

    Bigpopz says:

    Yo

    Am I right in thinking unlimited free TF to start with,
    If so then how’s this team look with BB chip?
    Then WC week after?
