2020/21 Season Updates

Week 38 / End of Season Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or the Full Set and here for his excellent End of Season Recap

A very long and eventful season is finally over with a crazy last gameweek - so much fun when all the games are at the same time!

What a finish to the league race! @Eduardo Tierney seemingly had it wrapped up going into the final week only for @Mike Doherty to go 2 points ahead with Mane captain, until the 90th minute when West Brom wiped out the Leeds clean sheet. 3 points the difference in the end and both managers finishing in the Top 100k overall - incredible result!

Congrats to @Eduardo Tierney - double gameweek 35 was the turning point with an incredible 171 points - Ed was only 1st for 5 weeks of the season before GW35 and never let it go after that. Ed also takes home the prize for the highest GW score of the season and is clear at the top of the Hall of Fame All Time Rankings (can be seen on the website) now!

Congrats to @Mike Doherty also for coming in 2nd place in the league! Mike was top for 11 gameweeks in total and almost snatched it back at the very end.

Congrats to @Robert Aikens for 3rd place in the league. RC dominated the first half of the season, leading the league for 9 gameweeks in total and secures his highest ever league position this year as well as rising up to 2nd in the All Time Rankings!

In the Last Chance Saloon competition, @Mike Reiffsteck beat @Michael Adams even against the bench boost by 80 points to 71 in the Tier 1 final - congrats Mike! @Daniel Alvarez also beat @Scotty P by 1 point with a score of 42 to 41 to win the Tier 2 final in his first season in the league, congrats Daniel!

This year's Rookie of the Year, the award for the best performing newcomer, goes to @Jake Dyer who finished 9th in the league and won 2 manager of the weeks. Jake led the league for 2 gameweeks early in the season also. Lots of great performances from the newcomers this year so there was a lot of competition. Congrats @Jake Dyer!

Reminder also of the winners of the competitions that finished earlier in the season: I've sent/tried to send something for these 3 comps and will also be sending the League Trophy to @Eduardo Tierney - would love to see a picture of you guys with it if you'd like to share.

Attached are also some stats for the season - let me know if you'd like a download of your data as well.

Finally, I hope you've all enjoyed the competitions this season - it's been another challenging season with COVID and long drawn out gameweeks but hopefully this gave you some outlet and entertainment for the year. Hopefully fans will be back next season and we'll be somewhat back to normal. I really enjoy running the league and the side games and if you have any feedback for improvements I am always happy to hear them so please reach out.

Hope to see you all back in August for the next season!

Week 34 Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or Full Set

A crazy weekend of football after fans storm Old Trafford and get the biggest game of the weekend (FPL and real life) postponed. Very unfortunate timing for our league with it coinciding with the Cup Finals - I apologize to those negatively impacted by it, but we have to accept the gameweek events as we have done all year with covid.

Congrats to @tFox who is crowned this year's Champion's League winner after a 4 point victory over @Andy Georgevich! Vladimir Coufal winning it for Tom with an assist in the final game of the gameweek.

Congrats to @Ryan Swaim for winning the Europa League by 35 points over @Mikael Nilsson after a strong bench boost. @Ryan Swaim also secured Manager of the Week with a score of 63!

With the European Cups over, we're straight into the Last Chance Saloon competition now, with only 4 weeks in the season left to go! Check out the bracket in the attached - @Mike Doherty @Eduardo Tierney @Robert Aikens and @Raymond Bleth the only players not qualified for LCS as all are within 75 points of the league leader. First round matches are here - everyone else that has qualified has a bye into the Quarter Finals.

In the league, @Mike Doherty is still out in front, 33 points ahead of @Robert Aikens and 46 points ahead of @Eduardo Tierney in 3rd. @Raymond Bleth is a further 25 points behind @Eduardo Tierney.

Keep an eye out for the fixtures, there is a double gameweek in GW35 and a blank in GW36 but the Man Utd v Liverpool game may impact the schedule in the next few days again so look out for further changes before the Friday deadline.

Good luck everyone in LCS and congrats again to the winners and finalists in the European Cups!

Week 33 Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or Full Set

Congrats to @Chris Parkin for this week's Manager of the Week with a big score of 62 after a successful Free Hit! Chris is the 20th different MotW we've had in the first 33 weeks - 5 more weeks left for the 5 remaining managers!

The semi finals of the cup are over - @tFox and @Andy Georgevich with some tactical maneuvers and good chip usage to beat @Mike Doherty and @Robert Aikens in the Champions League. @Chris Parkin did his best to try to catch @Ryan Swaim in the Europa League but the leg 1 lead was too great. @Mikael Nilsson overturned a 10 point deficit to defeat @Eduardo Tierney by 3 points.

@tFox and @Andy Georgevich now face each other in the CL final and @Ryan Swaim and @Mikael Nilsson in the EL final. Reminder that the final is 1 leg only in GW34. Good luck all!

Not much change in the league, @Mike Doherty's lead has extended a little to 29 points from @Eduardo Tierney and @Robert Aikens is a further 9 points back. @Raymond Bleth is 35 points behind @Robert Aikens.

Last Chance Saloon competition will be ready to kick off at the end of GW34, with Tier 1 including everyone in 13th and above in the league who are 75 points or more behind the league leader. Tier 2 cup will include everyone in 14th and below in the league.

Another Friday deadline for the cup finals and GW34 - don't miss it. Only 5 weeks to go!

Week 32 Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or Full Set

Congrats to @tFox for preventing @Andy Georgevich from getting a 3rd MotW in a row and securing his first of the season with a Harry Kane triple captain and 91 points!

@tFox takes a 14 point lead over @Mike Doherty into the second leg, with @Andy Georgevich 8 points ahead of @Robert Aikens in the other CL tie. @Eduardo Tierney is 10 points up on @Mikael Nilsson and @Ryan Swaim is 67 points ahead of @Chris Parkin in the EL semi finals.

24 points covers the top 3 with @Mike Doherty still in 1st, @Eduardo Tierney 20 points behind and @Robert Aikens in 3rd. @Raymond Bleth is probably the only threat to the top 3, again closing the gap this week being just 44 points behind 3rd place.

Reminder that at the end of GW34, places 14th to 25th in the league will enter the Tier 2 Last Chance Saloon competition with the winner taking $75. Everyone in the top 13 places that is 75 points or more behind the league leader as at the end of GW34 will qualify for the Tier 1 Last Chance Saloon with the winner taking $150. Both Tier 1 and 2 competitions are a straight knock-out with each round played over 1 GW.

GW33 kicks off tomorrow - don't miss the deadline! It's a blank GW for Spurs, Man City, Southampton and Fulham. Good luck all!

Week 31 Update

Congrats to @Andy Georgevich for back to back Manager of the weeks (thanks @Andy Georgevich for saving them both for our Quarter Final match)!

The Quarter Finals are now complete. Congrats to @Andy Georgevich, @tFox, @Robert Aikens and @Mike Doherty for making it through to the CL Semi Finals - @tFox overturning a 22 point deficit against @Syed Abidi to qualify. Congrats to @Eduardo Tierney, @Ryan Swaim, @Chris Parkin and @Mikael Nilsson for making it through to the EL Semi Finals - @Chris Parkin winning a very close match against @Nate by 3 points on aggregate.

At the top of the league @Mike Doherty goes back into 1st place, 14 points ahead of @Eduardo Tierney and 26 ahead of @Robert Aikens. @Raymond Bleth moves within 50 points of the top 3 with a great wildcard week also.

GW32 is a double gameweek for Spurs and will be the first leg of the Semi Finals - good luck to those involved!

Week 30 Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or Full Set

Congrats to @Andy Georgevich for this week's manager of the week with a score of 78! @Andy Georgevich is also this week's biggest mover in a relatively settled week otherwise, moving 2 spaces up to 14th.

The first leg of the Quarter Finals of the European Cups are also complete - most are very close games so far with all to play for in the second leg in GW31.

At the top of the table, reigning champ @Eduardo Tierney sneaks back into the lead ahead of @Mike Doherty by 1 point with @Robert Aikens 14 points further back. The top 3 are pulling away again slowly with only 8 weeks remaining!

GW31 kicks off on Saturday after what looks to be an exciting week of (real life) Champion's League quarter finals this week.

Good luck in GW31 everyone and good luck to those left in the cup!

Week 29 Update

See DLC's Gameweek update PDF here: This Week or Full Set

Congrats to @Nate for this week's manager of the week with a score of 68!

The Last 16 of Champions League and Europa League has also concluded. Congrats to @Mike Doherty @tFox @Robert Aikens who advance to the CL Quarter Finals and to @Eduardo Tierney @Nate @Chris Parkin @Jake Dyer @Mikael Nilsson @Ryan Swaim who advance to the EL Quarter Finals. Quarter Finals for both competitions will be played over GW30 and GW31.

The chasing pack are closing the gap on the top 3 in the league with less than 75 points covering the top 7 now. @Mike Doherty still leads but only by 12 points from @Eduardo Tierney now.

2 weeks off for everyone now with the International Break - first time I think I've looked forward to an International Break - with GW30 kicking off on April 3rd. Good luck to everyone in GW30!

**UPDATE** Thanks to @Mikael Nilsson for pointing out my mistake in the fixtures/bracket.

Technical issue that has been updated in the attached. @tFox is playing @Syed Abidi and @Mo Alrisheq is playing @Robert Aikens, not the other way around as per the previous deck.

Thanks @Mikael Nilsson! That could have been a disaster.
