Final Countdown

So with just a couple of weeks of the season left, I thought I would post an updated table [;)] 

 Pos. Manager (Team Name) Week Pts Total Pts National Pos.
1  Geoff Pryor (Hifi HighFlyers)  89 1662 709
2  Steve Evans (Llanelli Bluebirds)  78 1608 3021

5  John Powis (hoofitandhope)  44 1465 31016
6  DAVID TWIGG (Sh 1 t on the villa)  54 1463 31667
7  Gavin Jaynes (Shaken Not Stirred)  51 1425 45732
8  Thomas Rawlings (Not Worth 50m)  40 1371 68258
9  Darren Tuzzio (FC Chemicals)  59 1284 104972
10  Stephen Stiles (What Hi Fi XI)  61 1260 114102
11  Matt Hayes (The Cardinals)  57 1256 115554
12  Christophe Pointreau (Thorpe Hall XI)  26 1247 118789
13  Ian Margetts (BilboGimili)  38 1189 137038
14  Warren Downey (gerrardasnails)  81 1140 149223
15  Jonathan Evans (Ampersands of time)  34 1139 149430
16  Guy Ainley (DirtyDawgs)  16 1120 153413
17  Simon Lucas (Out of Phase)  18 1091 158856
18  Tom Parsons (Spam Hammer)  39 1060 163681
19  Garry Connolly (Sporting Chance)  26 954 174853
20  Clare Newsome (Tractor Girl FC)  31 949 175181
21  Vineet Patel (Smug Pundit Hanson)  26 944 175527

 Steve has made a lot of ground on me at the top of the league in recent weeks, so I will be nervously looking over my shoulder!

 Whilst at the bottom, well done to Clare who has escaped the wooden spoon position... for now anyway [;)]

Re: Final Countdown

Looking back, I was doing about okay till I ran out of transfers (several months ago). So lesson learnt for next year: stop tinkering every week-end and go for the longer-term approach... Still, it was fun and I enjoyed it greatly. Smile

From being a long way behind at the start, i slowly crawled back your lead. I then made a gamble in using up most of my subs, which worked short term as i think i led for a week or two, but the gamble hasn't paid off as i've been out of transfers for a while, and quite a few of my players have missed the last few games with injuries (and more than a couple are out for the season), so i can't see me making up the necessarey points to catch you.

Re: Final Countdown

Good to know that I am not the only one to run out of subs, two of my players have been injured on and off for a while now. Note to self.. don't pick a completely usless team to start the season with next year.

A purely altruistic gesture, naturally...

Re: Final Countdown

Congratulations Geoff P.

I hung on for 2nd place, which following up my 1st place last season puts me on par with Alex Ferguson in Premier League terms, so can't complain.

I ended up having just 3 players who were in my original line-up :-

Starting XI
Foster / Carvalho, Ricketts, Clichy, Tompkins / Lampard, Kuyt, Milner, Cahill, Gerrard / Drogba

Final XI
Friedel / Dunne, Cuellar, Dawson, Insua / Lampard, Fabregas, Milner, Malouda / Torres, Drogba
