Over the years I have really enjoyed this blog. Seven years ago I started creating stats for the regulars at the brilliant Fantasy Football Cheat. These stats have evolved into a fully blown Fantasy Football engine. And the growth and success is all thanks to our brilliant community: Writers, Regulars, Editors, Coders, the SquadGuru team – you have all made a difference. I thank you all.
The number of visitors to our site has grown year-on-year. In our first 12 months we had 175,000 people use the site. In our second twelve months we more-than-doubled to 380,000 people using the site. In our third 12 months, we had over half a million people use the site, and in 2017 we have had 1,099,245 visitors to the site.
This success is down to three things:
- excellent and well researched “evidence based” fantasy football articles by talented knowledgeable FPL writers,
- experienced community of managers with repeated FPL success who are happy to help others,
- the RMT Adviser algorithm, the number 1 FPL algorithm, tool ranked 32K this season (top 0.7%).
However, I no longer have the time to dedicate to writing for the site, nor do I have the time to enjoy commenting on the site. I feel my journey with this site has finished. Therefore, I an sorry to announce I am closing the site. I hope you all understand.
For the MLS fans, you can keep up to date with Ivan’s thoughts at MLS-Ivan (@IvanGB111).
I thank you all for making Fantasy Football First such a warm and welcoming place, and we all owe our thanks to all of those who gave up so much time to write, edit, administer and support the site. I raise a glass to you all and feel we are parting on a high.
Good luck to you all, and may your arrows be green.
