Okay, three games is a bit early but as we have a natural break here is the table.

Fact that I was top scorer this week has fuck all to do with it obviously. I even caught Gareth by three points.

Well done Zacc for keeping Gareth under a bit of pressure.

So, no need to worry about fantasy-Sanchez then. Plus maybe a bit more game time for Kun as a result?

I did exactly the same  :)
But I think you get the vice captain to get triple points instead if the captain doesn't play.

Post by: bluebrendan on February 13, 2018, 13:17:11
11 rounds to go and Andy Gould is 98pts clear at the top. I've managed to squeeze into 2nd place and Lee is on a hot streak and has shot up to 3rd. Stephen is still in contention in 4th but Gareth has a lot on to make up a 200pt deficit to take his usual slot at the top.

Meanwhile in the also-rans category Goat has dropped into the bottom half and may even be in danger of being caught by a resurgent Gav, who has clambered off the bottom. Could there be any worse humiliation?  :D
Title: Re: Citymancs Fantasy League
Post by: Gareth on February 13, 2018, 13:46:04
200 points is out of sight, but Top 3 may still be within reach. Had a terrible run just before Xmas and have hardly recovered since; surprised Red Star didn't sack me!

Title: Re: Citymancs Fantasy League
Post by: Gareth on February 27, 2018, 19:45:52
So, if you look at the squads of the two leaders, they're following very different strategies. Brendan, in second place, has spent a lot of money in defence and has a budget forward line; Andy, leading, has a back line from Poundland and a top-of-the-range strike force. I wouldn't call either squad well-balanced - to me they both look quite extreme versions of the strategies they represent. But it is obviously paying off, because it looks like one of these two is surely going to win the league.

The main reason for the cheapish forward line was that earlier in the season I had Aguero and Jesus who started a few games together early on and then Pep started to rotate them and then Jesus was injured so I switched to an expensive midfield which includes Salah and Sterling, two of the top 4 scorers in the Prem, plus Erikson, who is handy for assists and the odd goal. Barring disasters I think Andy has it sewn up tbh, a 100pt deficit won't be easy to overhaul.

So, that was a performance of truly Pep-tastic proportions by Andy to finish 200 points clear of the competition. Well done to him! All the top 6 scored north of 2000 points, which is where you need to be to be in the race, but Andy was well clear.
After a poor mid-season I'd been aiming to get back into the top 3 and I finally clipped Lee last week. So this week I was just hoping to stay ahead of him, in 3rd, but it turned out Brendan was on the beach and at the last I snuck past him into 2nd.
Pretty competitive league this season but everyone needs to up their game next time round to catch the champ.

Ha ha, I think that's 3 seasons on the bounce I've won the admin mini-league, good effort though Lee. Well done to Andy, Mr Consistency at the top and to Gareth for that late run that knocked me off the runners-up slot.
