R16 DEADLINE: TUESDAY 13th FEBRUARY 8:00pm UK
Hello everyone and welcome back to UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football 2023/24.
We are into the last 16 now, or R16 as they call it. Things are hotting up in the FF247 Regulars League, we have a surprise (and somewhat reluctant) leader in Rosco, and our current Champion Den Perry is floundering around back in 10th spot. But to put context on how close it all is there are just the 41 points separating the pair, with 8 others in-between them, all waiting to pounce on the former Big Brother wannabe.
The FF247 Regulars Leagues
As for the game itself you have UNLIMITED transfers to burn ahead of R16. That’s for the 1st leg games. You can then make a further 3 transfers for the 2nd legs, but they are a while away yet. Indeed, this round alone is spread over two weeks, and all told the whole of R16 lasts a full month.
We have left some of the key info in here, more as an easily found reminder –
Before R16 1st leg: Unlimited
Before round of 16 2nd leg: 3 transfers
Before quarter-final 1st leg: 5 transfers
Before quarter-final 2nd leg: 3 transfers
Before semi-final 1st leg: 5 transfers
Before semi-final 2nd leg: 3 transfers
Before final: 5 transfers
So basically it’s like FPL in terms of being able to carry 1 transfer over. However, as we have now reached the knockout stage we do not have the option of carrying a free transfer with us: you don’t use it, you lose it.
Deadlines are at the time of kick-off of the first match of the round. So unlike FPL you do get to see the line-ups in advance and adjust your plans accordingly.
There are a couple;
You get 1 regular wildcard and you can play it anytime you like prior to the start of a round. It acts the same way it does in FPL.
This is a different type of wildcard here, one that many will find very appealing. It is very similar to the “Free Hit” chip we have in FPL. However, there is one major difference… “The Limitless Wildcard enables the user to create a team without any budget restrictions and affords them unlimited transfers for one matchday.” So for one matchday you can afford whatever team you like. You do still have to meet the criteria for players from one team and formations and all that, but there is no budget, so spend away. Once the matchday is over, just like the free hit chip, our teams revert back.

So that’s the basics, in as much of a small nutshell as we could manage, without boring the pants off you. If you have any further questions or queries or if there are any clarifications you need then as always please feel free to ask below.
Please feel free to post any RMT’s, or indeed as ever just carrying on talking about any old nonsense!
