FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 3

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 3. Our good start didn’t last long. Just one game-week if you want specifics. After finishing GW1 with an impressive total of 86pts, GW2 brought us crashing back down to reality as we finished with just 35pts and a game-week rank of 3,402,911. If it hadn’t been for our United duo of de Gea & Lukaku we’d be stood in the corner wiping away the tears. With 18pts between them they accounted for just over 50% of our point’s total. The rest of our team were such a disappointment that they don’t even deserve a mention. So onto GW3 and our two free transfers…they’ll be needed!

The team in full

We have sold KdB & Kompany and bought Pogba & Alonso
Best laid plans and all that! The City boys get dumped unceremonously after just two GWs. Kompany may feel slightly hard done by but KdB has not yet brought his preseason form into the league and the lure of a United midfielder, both form wise and price wise, was too much for the committee to turn their back on. So Ginge has gone for the Ginge-wannabe, but we’ll be dabbing with the best of them. Now we very nearly decided to leave it there and carry over a free transfer for after the international break – that of course would be the normal, conservative move we would normally decide on – however, one bright spark suggested getting the most undefensive defender outside of Liverpool and after his Wembley brace, Alonso was voted in. Just. The two sensible committee members voted to hold, the two mavericks voted to get Alonso and spend, spend, spend and their bullying persuaded the final member to side with them.

At least the talk of treating Alonso as a midfielder does (subconsciously at least) make our midfield slightly less sh*t than it did before!

Our Captain is Harry Kane
No goals, two yellow cards, the August curse, but stats don’t lie. Or so we’re told. And Kane’s stats are pretty good – more shots in the box than anyone else in the league, hitting the woodwork three times already, it is felt that goals are imminent. And hopefully they are GW3 imminent. If Kane gets lost finding Wembley or fails to play for some reason, than the inform and popular Romelu Lukaku will wear the armband.

    I like those moves. Alonso’s double at Spurs was a warning to us all.

    I’m persisting with KDB tomorrow and carrying the FT I think but your moves make your side looks solid.

    Best of luck lads!

    Ok, I need someone to talk me out of playing my WC for this GW!
    I don’t dislike my team (although I don’t feel too confident for this gw, given that many did feck all last time out) and generally would see the IB and august transfers deadline out but there a number of players that I believe will be must haves (Kane, Alonso, Richarlison) in the near future but they will be out of reach budget wise if I don’t move now (or they’ll force an unwanted downgrade in key positions).
    I can’t get any of them without a hit in key positions (except Richard, of course) and I have already taken one last gw so don’t want to take another just now.
    So it’s basically, WC now to strengthen it while I can or bite the bullet and save it for the IB (or in deed for a later time).
    If anyone can be bothered, this is my team as is, the WC team and the head-to-head moves.
    Should I go for it, or stay put?

    Guys what’s the story with doucoure of Watford. Is he nailed on and is it worth bringing him in for Richie. Also I want to change kdb and Jesus but not sure whether to get Kane and Silva or eriksen and Kun. Thanks guys…what do you think.

      inittowinit says:

      Yes he should be nailed on. What’s the rationale for picking him in particular? I know he scored the other week but his past stats don’t suggest a flurry of goals.

      As for the other I’d probably want Kane but the other combo is good too, mainly due to Erik.

      • man u man says:

        Hey Initt. It would give me the money to complete the other transfers with .2 to spare. That and Richie hasn’t done a lot. I have Carroll on the bench to rotate with doucoure.

        • inittowinit says:

          Ok, just wondered if you’d seen him play and been impressed or something. I saw the Liverpool game and a few highlights of others but can’t say he stood out. Looking at the other options at that price I’d maybe consider Can also.

        • man u man says:

          Never thought of him actually. I’ll have another look. Cheers Initt
