Free Hit The Bollocks Out Of It!

Last week saw some highs and lows within the FF247 community. For every grumble at a 40 odd score there seemed to be a success story of an 80 odd. We fell somewhere in the middle as we ended up with 62. A smidgen above the average of 56 and a very modest green arrow of about 15k all pointed to us just about ‘getting away with it’.

As for the team itself Captain Kane lead from the front with a 24. Bruno (10), Grealish (7) and JWP (6) kept us afloat elsewhere whilst the most unexpected points came from our sub keeper as Forster clambered off the Covid riddled Saints bench for a 6. The rest made up the numbers, Salah included with 2.

Our GW17 Result…

We have 2 free transfers and £0.5m in the bank ahead of B(lank)GW18 and a Free Hit still in our pocket so let’s go see what was decided…

Our G18 Transfer(s)

I was funnelling my inner Alanis Morissette

We did as the title of this article suggests and for one week only, we have played our Free Hit. Trying to reach a decision was arguably easier than it should have been, perhaps all except the author has been tortured into submission. We toyed with a traditional 4-3-3, then a somewhat left-field 3-5-2 before the usually conservative bunch on the committee liked (I think, they may have just been humouring me) the outrageous and less often played 4-5-1.

Without going through every position and boring you all to tears (as I clearly did with my fellow committee chaps), we have concentrated on Man City, Man United, Spurs and god-forbid Arsenal. However, the Free Hit is there to play the fixtures and that is what we have done.

We have also got the main ‘big hitters’ in which hopefully adds to the potential ceiling of points that we can attain this week. After all, we bloody well need them!

To confirm then we have played our FREE HIT

Captain – KdB

Our captain is KdB and our vice is Bruno. There was one shout for Bruno as captain but he was quickly shut down.

    Didn’t realise DCL & Podence were both red flagged, leaves me with 5 so looks like it’s FH time.

    Last decision for the week (hopefully!) …who to captain?
    1 – KDB – Brighton had tough cup game, have conceded the most goals but goals shared throughout man c team
    2 – Kane – on penalties, Fulham under prepared, give away penalties, Kane blanked least between cap options
    What do you all reckon?

    • 16.1

      RedKev, I’ve been changing between the two hundred times and still can’t decide.
      The majority will go with KDB but I think Kane could well outscore him. As you said, Fulham are totally unprepared for this game and Kane had a nice long weekend rest without being involved in the Cup. It will be a very last minute decision but for now leaning towards Harry.
